    Summary

    After suffering a devastating loss Yusuf Kaysani, better known as Joe, moves to a small cottage at the edge of an estate owned by Andromache and Quynh Scythia, wanting to focus on healing and on his art.

    There he meets the groundskeeper Booker, the fascinating owners of the estate, their daughter Nile, and a man by the name of Lykon. In time he comes to love them and they him, and begins to move past his all encompassing grief. Then, a neighbour by the name of Stephen Merrick gifts him a block of marble that is just waiting to be carved.

    He sculpts it in the likeness of his lost lover, pouring his very soul into its creation, channelling his loss and his love into the stone until it begins to come to life before his eyes.

    Merrick however, upon seeing the sculpture, wants it for himself, and Joe will do anything to keep it out of his hands and keep his lover safe with him.

    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.
    (SUCK IT, NILE)

    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

    Nicky steps closer to Joe in the shower, rests a hand in the junction between his neck and shoulder, puts the other on his face, his thumb caressing right above his freckles. He feels the wet skin beneath his fingers and he knows it would taste salty if he decides to kiss it. Nicky takes a deep breath and concentrates on the feel of Joe’s beard under his palm. He sinks his fingers in the coarse hair with a sigh.

    “My love,” Nicky repeats, almost a whisper this time. Joe’s jaw twitches against his hold and Nicky wants to say that it’s okay, that Joe can let go, but the words fail him so he does the next best thing and presses their foreheads together.

    After Merrick, Joe is barely holding together. Nicky is there to lend his arms until he does.

    Summary

    Prompt fill for this prompt at The Old Guard Kink Meme:

    Joe falls in love easily and it's brought him a lot more disappointment than happiness. The people he falls for might be nice in the beginning, but once the honeymoon period is over it seems like they always find something to criticize. So after a string of relationships that always seem to end with his partners being critical of things that make Joe who he is, Joe comes into his 30s convinced he'll never settle down happily.

    Then he meets Nicky, who seems to be genuinely nice and always says the nicest things about Joe's art. Joe has gotten his heart broken too many times to be willing to give this a chance, but over the course of many months and Nicky proving him wrong time and time again, Joe slowly starts to think his love life might not be a lost cause after all.

    Summary

    Nicky feels his tension and holds him tighter, holds Joe together as he threatens to fall apart and does not allow the nightmare to pull him back into a world full of pain and agony. “We are in Malta and we ate apricots and pomegranates and dates and figs yesterday. You took my hand and laughed at how sticky it was and when we kissed, I could taste the sweet juice of the fruit, the sun and the salt of the sea on your lips.”

     

    During their healing time in Malta Joe's sleep is haunted by memories of the lab. But Nicky is there for him as he always was and always will be.

Between the two of them it doesn’t take long and as soon as the hall is clear, Nile turns back to watch Nicky’s march, mystified by his transformation.

    Summary

    Yusuf’s blindfold is removed, he sees the flash of a steel blade, and—in an instant—knows exactly where this is going to go.
    They have found out what he is, and they want to know how.
    So it is a surprise when he finds himself being shoved into a chair, and a ruddy, round-faced Venetian priest grabbing him by the shoulders, and bellowing at him in ecclesiastical Latin:
    “Where is the lamp?”

    Twenty-five years ago, Yusuf told Nicolò an old folk tale about a fisherman and a djinnī trapped in an oil lamp. Then they parted ways at Alexandria, leaving Yusuf heartbroken.

    Now, as Tyre is captured by the Venetians after a long siege, Yusuf finds himself imprisoned in a tower by the sea for taking a stand. But who's been spreading rumours about an old oil lamp that belonged to Saint Nicholas?

    Summary

    One must watch their words around the Fey. The magical beings from beyond the barrier speak in riddles and half truths and they can covet every little secret they can pry from you. Giving the Fey any indication of your feelings, thoughts or even your true name, gives them power over you.

    Nico knows this. His Grandmother taught him to protect himself from the wily creatures: he lays his wards, keeps himself to himself, and is in complete control. His acquaintance with the charming, amusing, (infuriatingly beautiful) Fey guard Yusuf is just that, an acquaintance. Sure, they have grown close over the years but Nico has always kept his professional distance, the incident at last midwinter notwithstanding.

    And he will continue to do so. Even if Yusuf turns up at his house, late one night, in desperate need of Nico's help.

    Summary

    “I want to spend some time alone, with you,” Joe says in response, slowly, after a moment. And he feels breathless, like he’s back in that room again, filled with smoke. In that non-descript room that had only meant to be one of passing, but instead will forever haunt his memories and dreams for a while. Grey and fogged, with Nicolò staring up at him with unseeing eyes, and that sinking feeling that his world ended right at that moment because Nicolò is dead.

    ***

    A month after Merrick Industries, Joe finds himself wanting to be alone with Nicolò, as he starts to feel himself unravel.

    ***

    or a glimpse on what Joe means when he said: “he's the moon when I am lost in darkness”

    Summary

    You have my heart hayati. Guard it well.

    His life was his first and foremost but it was also Joe’s.

    It meant that when Nicky took up a sword to his enemies, he was defending not one but two lives, always. Perhaps Yusuf al Kaysani would have breath left in his body even after Niccolo de Genova breathed his last, but it would not be the same Yusuf that existed with Niccolo.

    They were their own, but also of each other.

    This is Nicky’s POV of Torn Apart, as requested. Nicky and Joe are separated at the lab. Angst with a happy reunion.

    Summary

    His words are a vicious snarl and he hopes they can feel it like the bite of savage mutt.

    “You think you can take me from him? You think you’ll survive that? Mark my words, mine will be the last face you see before death claims you. It will be swift because my love preaches kindness, but you will still die as easily as I would break down a door that’s keeping me from him,” Yusuf says lowly.

    Summary

    For the first time in centuries, Joe’s face brings him an unending wave of rage that has tears rolling down his cheeks as a scream rips out from his throat.

    “We go together. We’re supposed to go together,” he screams, clutching Joe’s shirt in agony hard enough that the blood soaked material rips between his fingers.

     

    Joe gets hurt on a mission and doesn’t wake up for a longer time than usual. Nicky thinks he’s lost him, let the angst ensue.
