    Summary

    Nicolò was rejected by his second alpha mate because he couldn't get pregnant. So, back on his family's farm, his parents asked for the village high priest's help, wondering if he could perform any fertility ritual to help their son. And the answer was yes, Nicolò would be offered to the Gods, hoping that they might impregnate him if they so chose. Just, for a human omega to get to the plane where the Gods resided, they had to go through the night of one hundred knots, when one hundred alphas would knot them over and over again.

    Could Nicolò cope with such a thing?

    And would any of the Gods look favourably on this offering?

    Summary

    Andy licked her spoon with the tip of her raspberry red tongue. ‘Have you tried having sex about it?’

     

    ‘It’s not for me.’

     

    There was a brief moment of silence as Andy sat her glass down and crossed her arms on the table in front of her.

     

    ‘Sex with a woman?’

     

    Quynh rolled her eyes. When Andy’s gaze did not relent, she laughed. ‘Oh please. I’m not twenty-two anymore.’

     

    ‘No. You’re an adult woman, who is allowed to do what she damn well pleases. And because you seem to be missing even the signals you’re giving yourself, much less mine: Yes. I am coming onto you.’

     

    Quynh is an acclaimed writer of literary fiction who has never missed a deadline in her life. Andy is the woman of a thousand trades she meets on a research trip for her latest book. What starts as a bit of fun might just be the thing that makes Quynh miss her deadline - and change her life forever.

    Summary

    Lykon stares at all of them, silent for a long moment. “So you’re just...the Robin Hoods of the museum world, or what? What about the Bronze?”

    Joe laughs, the tense lines of his face relaxing somewhat. “That’s what Nicky calls us. And the Bronze, well...that was a bit of a test run for our next job. To see how difficult it would be to retrieve something a little less famous.”

    “A little less famous than what?” Lykon asks, already dreading the answer.

    Joe smiles a little bashfully. “Well. Less famous than the Rosetta Stone.”

    Summary

    Set in a steampunk style world, The Old Guard Circus travels the states on their train, amazing and entertaining the masses. Beloved by the people for not only their show, but the camaraderie they display, and the feeling that anyone is welcome, even if they can’t pay.
    But then one day a new invention from the The Old Guard astounds the people, that has the potential to change the world. It catches the eye of one business tycoon Steven Merrick, who above all else craves power, and the wealth that comes along with it. This new invention coming out of a circus of all things, threatens the power balance between the classes. So Merrick tries to rip the circus apart by turning not only public sentiment against them but by a betrayal from within.

    “After all these years you still get nervous my love?” Nicky asks embracing him from behind.

    “Mmm, it’s better now that you are here,” Joe replies, turning in the embrace.

    “You look worried, the rehearsals have all been going well, even the small hiccup with the timing of the fireworks was resolved by Andy.”

    “By adding more gunpowder,” he responds dryly.

    Summary

    When Nile and Lykon pretend to date so they can finally sleep in one of the better beds in Andy's safehouses, it seems like a decent plan. It’s not a sustainable plan, or a well thought out plan, but it is a way for Nile to finally find one single solitary perk in the new life she’s been thrust into. However, soon enough, Nile realizes she hasn't considered how dating another immortal will affect the dynamics of a team she's only just joined, or how lying to that team will make her feel. Already struggling to adapt and unsure of her place in the group she’s found herself in, Nile is soon torn between pursuing what started out as a fake relationship but might have real potential and coming clean to the group.

    Will her uncertainty about the work the team does and her relationship with Lykon damage her still fragile relationships to the group beyond repair? Is she even ready to be part of a new family? A canon divergence AU in which Lykon lives.

    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

    Nile’s life hasn’t been that awful since she died for the first time in 1912.

    Okay, granted, working for Merrick Pharmaceuticals and acting as their oldest living immortal lab rat wasn’t exactly what she had dreamed of doing all her life. It was also a bit lonely being the only one of her kind, but Nile was fine, really.

    All of that looks like it might just change when a burly Frenchman with the saddest blue eyes that Nile has ever seen walks into her into her ravenous wolf den of a workplace and asks to be cured of his immortality.

    Lykon would just like to know where his best friend wandered off to. Nicky and Joe are the first people to jump on board with looking for Booker despite the way that they both had nearly two hundred years of very painful romantic yearning built up for Lykon, because they’d never want to get between Lykon and his boyfriend.

    Everybody needed another miscommunication or incorrect assumption like they needed another hole in their head, but that never seemed to slow motherfucking Destiny down any as their lives and relationships started to mix together in new and unexpected ways.
