    Summary

    “Are we friends now?” Joe asks. Nicky reaches up to pat Joe on the back, shifting his weight through his hips so he’s got enough power to push Joe into the water. When Joe comes up, spluttering, hair hanging lank across his face, he stares at Nicky, who looks back at him with a lopsided smile.

    “Now we’re friends.”

     

    Ten years, two best friends, one couch that seems to have its own agenda. Friends-to-lovers with all the trimmings.

    Summary

    Nicky doesn’t even get one good, quiet night.

    The move-in day is exhausting, physically and mentally, and by nine that night, all he wants to do is take a shower and pass out. Showering isn’t a problem, in fact, his new apartment has amazing water pressure. Passing out, on the other hand, doesn’t go as well.

     

    (For a prompt that starts: ok but a ‘your apartment is next to/above mine and i can hear you and your partner dancing and singing and the bed moving and you two laughing and talking in hushed tones and it won’t let me sleep' AU)

    Summary

    An office at two-thirty in the afternoon is a particular flavor of Hell. The fresh promise of the morning is far behind, the end of the day seems forever away, and gone is the escapist enjoyment of lunch to look forward to. 

    It's enough to drag down the most ebullient and enthusiastic worker, let alone a tired, frustrated, meeting-sore CEO. So when the phone rings in the middle of his two o'clock meeting with the most terminally boring department head in the company, Joe doesn't even glance at the display screen.

    Joe sees the name just as he's snatching up the phone before it can stop ringing. People outside of his senior executives don't usually call him directly, so he's curious.

    "Mister Genova, how can I help you today?"

    Summary

    It isn’t until Nicky calls him ’sweetheart’ that Joe realizes he’s in the shit.

     

    Five thousand words of pure, indulgent smut, hanging delicately from a sweetly domestic framing device. With some dirty talk, just for flavor.

    Summary

    It feels as if his heart is thrown open like the shuttered window of their room, laid bare to Yusuf's gaze. As if the answer to every mystery is in the heat where their hips meet, the low rumble of pleasure in Yusuf’s voice, and the damp silk of Yusuf’s hair clutched in Nicolò’s hands.

    Five times Nicky loved Joe's curls, and one time they meant nothing at all.
