    Summary

    “You said you’d be here tomorrow,” Celeste accuses when Nile steps on the creaky floorboard.

    She clicks the lamp by her bed on, revealing she’d been sitting up against the headboard, bare legs crossed, not asleep at all, waiting.

    “I got impatient,” Nile says.

    Her favorite thing about Celeste is her smile. It’s sly, coy, like she’s got things to hide. It makes Nile feel less guilty for wasting Celeste’s time, to think she might have her own skeletons, her own nightmares, hidden away in a place Nile can’t see.

    Summary

    Andromache is so tired that her mortality seems like a welcome gift. Three visitors, however, offer her the chance to look one more time at the past, the present she has shaped and the future that will be shaped either by her presence or her absence.

    (Inspired by A Christmas Carol, though it’s not Christmassy!)

    Summary

    Nile rested her forehead against the nearest cabinet, countertop digging into her stomach, and mumbled, “Why did I think this was a good idea?”

    Before she could second guess herself further, there was a knock on the door. “Be calm,” Nile said under her breath, as she hurried over to check the spyhole.

    It was Celeste. Okay, okay. Nile could handle this. She wiped her sweating hands on her jeans, pasted a smile on, and opened the door.

    Summary

    Since being stranded here, I have concluded the following: 1. I’ve been in a dust storm for several sols. 2. Shit. I suppose I’ll just have to think of something. Or die. Nicky, my love wherever you are, remember how we always joked that I was the very lowest ranked member of the crew, and that I would only be 'in command' if I were the only one left?

    Well I'm in command now.

    Summary

    There’s only one thing left to do: say a silent prayer. The way she learned to pray feels insufficiently casual for the circumstances; she wishes she knew more about the format of the rakat. All she remembers is, “God hears the one who praises him,” so she starts on the Lord’s Prayer because praise comes before petition.

    In place of, “Give us this day our daily bread,” she substitutes, “Get Joe out of this with his head,” and then she has to hold back a giggle at the rhyme. She must have lost a lot of blood.

    The woman wipes the needle down with Everclear. “You know, I met the old Guardian too.”

    Summary

    The hero and the thief. More comic tropes, more sword fighting, and a whole lot more falling in love.

    This is the sequel to fight 'til the day that i die, so you might want to read that first.

    Summary

    And so it came to be that Earth’s first contact with intelligent alien life was not an invasion or some mysterious signal from the depths of space, but a plea for help and an offer of salvation.

    The Scythians come to Earth after a catastrophe destroys their planet and renders them effectively infertile. They need the humans and perhaps the humans need them as well.

    *Joe & Nicky are the main pairing, with the other couples in the background

    Summary

    The sea-witch stares so deep into her eyes that Andromache feels a tightness squeezing against her from the air around her.

    "You’ll have your chance to take your beloved from me. If you can hold her through the night, in every form that she passes through. If you can manage that, then your claim on her will break mine. You will have her back.”

    “Deal.” Andromache agrees between thumping heartbeats. “Tomorrow night?”

    “Agreed. Tomorrow night it is.”

    There's not enough air in her lungs to sigh in relief, but there's also no reason to linger in the sea-witch's presence when she had what she came for. Backing off, she mounts her horse in one swift move.

    The witch appraises her slowly, taking in the white knuckles wrapped around both the reins and the axe handle. Her pearly-toothed smile widens, even as another ribbon of seaweed falls away and hits the ground.

    “And know that when you lose, I’ll put you in the water too. Deep where there’s no light. And seven years’ hence, I’ll be able to walk inland so much further with your fiery heart.”

    Summary

    It’s unfortunate that Nicky was at the same nightclub as him tonight, that Joe spotted him across the room throwing back shots, that Joe was unable to look away from the long line of his throat. It’s even more unfortunate that Nicky caught his eye and smiled so fucking widely before coming over to greet him; there was no polite way to escape the interaction, and all Joe could do was match Nicky shot for shot.

    Nicky’s hand was clumsy on his arm, Nicky’s breath was mostly vodka ghosting over his face, when he leaned close and asked Joe if maybe he’d like to get out of there.

    Joe was drunk as fuck and unable to say anything besides, “Sorry, I don’t fuck Christian missionaries.”

    (In which Nicky thinks the mission trips he went on as a teen are a net positive for the world and Joe has a problem with that. (Un)Fortunately, it's not enough to stop him from hooking up with Nicky.)

    Summary

    Standing there, head tilted inquisitively towards him with a gentle smile is the most beautiful man he’s ever seen. He’s as tall as Joe himself with longish dark hair and stunning eyes the colour of the Italian Rivera. It looks like St. John’s Ambulance service hired a model for their uniform.

    “Mr. Al-Kaysani?”

    “Baba?”

    Professor Yusuf Al-Kaysani meets a beautiful paramedic and finds more than he could have dreamed.

    Summary

    Nile smiled tentatively, eyes flickering to the name tag (Celeste) before pushing the candy across the counter.

    Celeste smiled back. “Is there a point where the coffee doesn’t help?”

    “Huh?”

    “Your hands are shaking.”
