    Summary

    It's been three months since they've left Booker behind. The team is trying to go forward, but it's hard.

    And Nile can't keep her head down. She's done leaving everyone awkwardly managing the silences where there should be a tired snicker, she's done seeing their eyes burn up in anger before being bitten down by bitterness, at the thoughts that strayed towards death and pain. She's done with the untold past they had shared together, and that no one wanted to talk about, because one of their own had failed them.

    But she was the one picking up the pieces left.

    So she pulls herself up and she breaks the exile. Because it doesn't matter what they had said back then. What matters is what they need now. And unanswered questions are definitely not that.

    Summary

    2040, The Old Guard are back in Berlin for the first time since the tragedy of 2025. They must ignore their wounds for the sake of the city which is under a terrorist threat, but no matter what they told Nile, pain doesn’t always fade away with time and sometimes ghosts are real too.

    Summary

    “I want to be cremated.”

    It's a simple enough sentence to say, but it's not necessarily a simple request, and when Andy says it, it shakes the rest of them.

    Summary

    Booker's made it to the other side of exile. He's learned a lot, he's grown a lot, and for the first time in his immortal years, he's actually lived a lot. It doesn't make it perfect. It doesn't fix everything. But at the end of it all, they're family. And he may be broken, but he still loves them.

    Maybe with family he can truly learn how to stand on his own. Keep his promise to them - and himself.

    Summary

    “You wanna know the worst part is?” Booker slurs suddenly, eyes glassy and unfocused but Nicky still nods, if a bit hesitant, “Even when I’m happy, I can’t feel it.”

    “What does that mean?” he doesn’t know why he’s entertaining this but it’s better than the silence, he supposes.

    “I know it won’t last.”

    Summary

    Andy has a very strict do-not-engage policy for plagues; she’s the oldest and has lived through plenty of them. The rest of the Old Guard mostly follow along; the four of them trying to stop a pandemic makes about as much sense as trying to prevent an earthquake or halt an erupting volcano.

    The Old Guard may be family, but that doesn’t mean they don’t keep secrets from each other.

    Summary

    “Are you in danger?” again, nothing but panting breaths are heard in response, “Booker? Are you hurt?”

    “No. I’m fine.” Booker manages eventually, “Just-” he curses again, “Nightmare. You were hurt. I needed-” he trails off.

    “Needed to make sure we were okay.” Nicky concludes, some of the heat in his veins cooling down slightly, “We’re okay.” he assures softly but it doesn’t seem to calm Booker down any.

    Summary

    “You cannot keep them, Sebastien.”
    “Keep them?!” Sebastien hissed, glancing at the boys, “You talk like they would be pets, Quynh.”
    “And you talk like they would be sons,” Quynh countered harshly, and Sebastien tried to remember that she was only being cruel to be kind, even as his heart instantly recoiled at her suggestion that he was trying to replace his dead sons with Joe and Nicolò.

    Summary

    Peter’s hometown is completely and utterly boring. The nearest big city is a three hour drive away and Peter doesn’t even want to classify his town as a town, it’s more of a village really. The one interesting thing about it though, is the man who lives a few blocks away from the school. He had shown up out of nowhere twenty years ago, his mother had told him, and he was a mystery. The adults said he hadn’t aged in since he came and at first people had been scared of him but they realised quickly enough that he was no danger to anyone.

    Or

    In which Booker takes in stray cats and unintentionally becomes a substitute grandfather, and a great grandfather. And eventually gets reunited with his family.

    Summary

    "Today of all days, see
    How the most dangerous thing is to love
    How you will heal and you’ll rise above
    Crowned by an overture bold and beyond
    Ah, it’s more courageous to overcome."

    5 times the team tried to save Booker, and 1 time he saved himself.

    Summary

    “I’ve been thinking a lot about what Booker said,” Joe said.

    Nicky looked at him and frowned. “Which thing exactly?”

    “How we have ‘always had each other’.” He expected Joe to snort but instead, his eyes casted down. “Do you think us being happy has just made him and Andy miserable?”

    --

    Or, Nicky is holding in a lot of anger at Booker for selling them out and is trying to find the right way to say it.

    Summary

    “I’m happy for you, Yusuf,” Booker says, because he means it despite the ache, and Joe smiles, nodding, and he’s smiling in a way that makes his heart hurt even more.

    “We love you, Booker,” Joe says because he’s just that person, before driving off as Booker makes his way up to his apartment, steps feeling like lead.

    He makes the point to check the mail, and he’s not even sure why. He’s never checked mail before, Joe usually did. Booker pauses then, looking at the different ads he pulled out of the box after twisting the key.

    So many changes already.

    When he finally gets to his unit, he finds someone standing at the door. They turn when he pauses, and greets him with a smile.

    “Hello Booker,” James Copley says, giving him a two-finger salute. “You haven’t aged a day.”

    ***

    or where Booker’s best friend Yusuf moves out to be with his Nicolo, and he makes the choice to live alone for the first time in years. Booker tells himself he’ll be fine, tells everyone that he’ll be fine, even though the weight in his chest tells him otherwise. but he really has no choice. this is his life now.

    then James Copley comes home.

    Summary

    Nile jumps into his arms. Her hair is in braids, snug and intricate and bejeweled, and he grasps for her, her legs around his waist, her arms around his shoulders; warm and alive in his arms after a century of texting that devolved more and more into incomprehensible emojis over burner phones. | A hundred years from now, Booker reunites with his family.

    Summary

    Being in Russia during winter is one of the worst decisions one can make - yet here they are, shivering in the middle of the snow storm, on another mission that may last for weeks, or days, depending on who knows what.

    Summary

    The sidestreets are dead silent compared to the bustle of downtown, letting both ease and worry simmer in Joe’s bones as they pass only occasional pedestrians on their walk to the address Copley had given them. It’s a small apartment, part of a stonework building that’s likely just as old as Booker himself and a part of Joe wonders if he’d chosen it for the familiarity. A bigger part of him finds that it still hurts to care.

     

    Or,

    Andy doesn't have ninety years, but she does have a plan.
