    Summary

    "Waking up today, I thought that it was you
    Who told me, “Idiot,
    You have to come back to life.

     

     

    Look. I have always been the kind of person who would listen to a song and quietly hallucinate a fanvid to whatever I was currently hyperfixating on. And one day, after many years of trying and failing to crush this tendency I decided to lean into it and see if I could learn Italian by listening to all the Italian pop music I could get my hands on and pretending it was about Star Trek.

    Anyway it worked.

    So now, people can't say things like "huh, since I lost my head for Nicky/Joe I've been exploring Italian music" where I can see it and not expect stuff to happen . Because Amen by Noemi is clearly about Crusades-era Nicky, and "Tra il Male e Dio" is the most ludicrously Starcrossed Historical Gay song in any language, prove me wrong.

    So, I've made Old Guard playlists before, but this playlist tells a story? Sort of?

    Summary

    “I’ll never understand your problem with whores,” Primo said, taking another mouthful of the meal he’d scavenged, “but you’d better get over it, unless you want to be a very rich hypocrite.”

    Summary

    They’re immortal. They’ve been through centuries of plagues and revolutions and wars. Flat pack IKEA furniture will not be what breaks them.

    It will not.

    Summary

    Yusuf snorts, as if to say it’s mutual. But the Italian struggles to sit upright, wincing and swearing, and – Yusuf cannot pretend he does not want to know, not when a creature will always seek out its like, its matched half as the Greek philosopher Plato wrote, and there is nobody else in the world, to the best of his knowledge, like the two of them. He says, “What’s your name?”

    There’s a very long pause. He can hear the other man deciding whether to lie. But there is no purpose to it, except for bitterness, and the answer is uttered cold and shortly. “Nicolò.”

    (Or: The inevitable backstory.)

    Summary

    He's imagined their reunion many times. He's imagined sweeping Nicolo off his feet with eloquent declarations of undying devotion, imagined being the one swept off his feet by Nicolo’s quiet sincerity. He's even imagined the unlikely possibility that the spark will have died, that the sight of Nicolo won't set a fire in his blood the way it always has.

    Or: Oh, that time in Malta.
