    Summary

    Nicolò should set up the rifle right now, make the shot, and be out of the country by lunchtime. He shouldn’t care that Joe’s eyes are a warm, deep brown, or that when he smiles the entire room lights up around him. Nico has killed beautiful people before, many of them, without blinking.

    Instead he makes a monumentally stupid decision.

    "My bad pickup line worked on you,” Joe says later at dinner. “I saw your sneer and I thought, oh, I must get that man to agree to a date with me.”

    Nico snorts. “And despite my better judgement, here we are.”

    “Oh,” Joe says, and over to touch Nico’s fingers. “I think your judgement was quite good, don’t you?”

     

    Or: Nico has a job, and that job is Joe. He just can't for the life of him figure out why anyone would want an unassuming museum curator and art restorer dead.

    Summary

    “How will you remember?” Yusuf asked, voice cracking in grief.

    “That I love you?”

    “Yes.”

    Nicolò tilted his head to the side quizzically, a small smile forming on his lips. “That’s easy,” he said, a teasing lilt to his voice. ”I can’t help it.”

    After his beloved’s unexpected and untimely death, Yusuf travels to the underworld, intent on saving his love and returning with him to the world of the living, no matter the cost.

    Summary

    The premise of Married at First Sight is simple: get matched to a complete stranger by a group of relationship experts and meet your future spouse on your wedding day. So far, this 'scientific' experiment has only been limited to the straights, but for the upcoming season of Married at First Sight UK, things are going to be different: it will be a queer-only season.

    Joe applies because of a bet, Nicky applies because his friends bully him into it. Both of them are sure they won't be going any further than the application process, except... they do. But that's fine. They'll just meet at the ceremony, get married, try not to murder each other for the mandatory six weeks, and then they will get divorced and go their own, very separate ways.

    Or will they?

    Summary

    Nile Freeman is working her way up in King Merrick's army. She's dedicated, highly skilled, and determined. All she needs to do is get rid of this stubborn headache, ignore the whispers in her mind, and impress Commander Keane.

    She doesn't, of course, expect to die. And she most definitely does not expect to wake back up.

    Summary

    She is still young, and her world is full of wonder. Beyond the horizon is a land full of possibility, and she wants to see it all. She loves it already - the whispering of the wind in the trees, the rising and setting of the sun, the ebb and flow of the waves. The world is bright, and hopeful, and beautiful.
    (She does not yet know how the world will change.)

    Summary

    This isn't violence, he repeated to himself for the hundredth time. Steven was his boyfriend and this was lovemaking, even if it left Nicky with finger-shaped bruises on his arms and hips, and with a backache that lasted for days. A fat tear rolled down his cheek at a particularly brutal thrust. This isn't violence.

    He wondered why it felt like it.

    Summary

    A/B/O, but make is more canon compliant. In which Andy, Quynh, and Joe are alphas, Nile and Booker betas, and Nicky is an omega. Not that their designations really matter. None of them are exactly traditional.

    Chapter One: Nile observes her new family, watching them interact, and watching how they all lover one another despite everything. Yeah, she would fit in just fine.

    Chapter Two: Nicolò had been raised to hate being an omega, to hate his heat, to hate his very body. But Yusuf teaches him otherwise, and helps him realise that he has nothing to be ashamed of. Nicolò loved him desperately and fiercely.

    Chapter Three: Andromache had never really wanted to to the whole big sister thing, and definitly never wanted to do the whole mothering thing, but after meeting Yusuf and Nicolò, she was changing her tune. The boys just brought out her protective instincts, and she'd learned to embrace it. Slightly begrudgingly.

    Summary

    In 643 AD, Nicolò was killed on the steps of his monastery when the Lombards captured Genova. Then he woke up, and was found by the woman who would soon become like sisters to him within the year.

    Then, one night in 1099, they all dreamed of a new man, one who died with his throat slit outside stone walls. He’d woken up terrified, stumbling to his feet covered in gore before weeping at the sight of his fallen friends, at the sight of a great city on its knees.
    _____

    In 1099 Yusuf died at the Gates of Jerusalem when the city fell. Then he woke up, after having dreamt of two warrior women, and a man who seemed to have somehow captured his very soul.

    _____

    Yusuf loves Nicolò. Nicolò is starting to love Yusuf.

    Andromache and Quynh are NOT pleased with an alpha (even one as amazing as Yusuf) showing interest in their baby brother.

    Not pleased at all.

    Summary

    “Today I met a boy who escaped al-Quds,” Yusuf says, and Nicolò stares back at him this time. His clean face is solemn, his pale eyes almost sad, and Yusuf wishes he could see some anger in them. Anything but this. “They killed his whole family.”

    “When you say them,” Nicolò blinks, and there is a twitch in his strong jaw. “You mean me. My people.”

    Yusuf feels he has been running his whole life.

    He ran from his duties as the family’s heir when he refused to marry the woman chosen by his parents. Yusuf eventually made a new home in Jerusalem, and he thought he was done running. Then the Franks laid their siege and Yusuf was killed and brought back to life too many times. Before he realised, he was on the run again. Only this time, he is not alone.

    Or; a road trip around the Mediterranean in which Yusuf struggles with his new life, searches for the women in his dreams and learns how to open his heart. Also, there is only one bed.

    Summary

    He’s sitting here by himself, texting his best friend. He’s thinking he should just go home. Before he can do anything with that thought, his phone buzzes. It's Nile.

     

    Want company?

    He’s about to say yes when a man sits down next to him. A gorgeous man, Nicky notices when he turns to look at him. Perfect curls and the man is just close enough that Nicky can see a dusting of freckles across his nose.

     

    Nicky is a PhD student coming off a string of bad dates. After his most recent one, he finds himself in a hotel bar, when he meets a handsome stranger who invites him up to his room. It's not until the next morning that Nicky realizes there's been a misunderstanding. A misunderstanding that he should definitely clear up, except if he doesn't, he's guaranteed to see the man again.

    Summary

    “But…I’ve never worked in a bookstore before?” 

    “Look, I know this is unorthodox,” Andy says. “But I’ll be straight with you, we need someone on staff and soon. And this isn’t rocket science or spinal surgery on infants. You’re here all the time, you have good taste in books, you seem to pick things up quickly. It’s a good group of people. Strange. But good.”

    What Nile means to say, cautious all her life, is that she’ll need some time to think about it. What comes out of her mouth is: “I’m gonna need two weeks of notice at my current job.”

    (in which, adrift, uncertain, and a little heartbroken, Nile Freeman accidentally gets a job at a bookstore. despite some strange interpersonal dynamics, terrible book jokes, and the ever-present threat of gentrification, Nile thinks that she may have found a place to belong.)

    Summary

    He wonders what the classrooms of the normal kids look like, wonders if there are posters up, if there are desks and toys for them to play with. There are two desks in this room, for him and Emily. There’s no posters up to look at. There’s a teddy bear in the corner that is there specifically for Emily to grasp when she has an episode. He knows Emily has a good family because they always drop her off and give her a kiss on each cheek despite her squirming away from touch. Every morning he touches his own lips and then to his cheeks and whispers to himself to pretend he has parents, too, who care for him.
     
     

     
    Sebastien is just one of many kids stuck in the foster system in the suburbs outside of Philadelphia. He dreamed of meeting his parents like every other child that was abandoned as an infant. Nothing changed all that much in his foster placement, just the different ways to be made afraid. Little did he know, the new neighbours that had moved in next door were much more than they seemed.
