    Summary

    He’s so tired. Of being gentle with himself, of giving himself time. Of all the helpful, exhausting little rituals that make it better but don’t make it go away. Of the distance between knowing the way home and actually being there.

    ----

    Sequel to Somewhere in Mid-Air, because enough people said they wanted to see more of the recovery and I found I did too. Nicky and Nile deal with the fallout.

    Summary

    Whumptober Day 28:

    Someone roughly grabbed the back of her coat and pulled, the air left her in a whoosh as her back slammed into the concrete of the sidewalk, her head bouncing harshly off the pavement. She groaned and blinked against the starbursts of light that popped across her vision to see her mysterious attacker towering over her, a small silver handgun pointed at her.

    ”Give me everything you have!”

    Or; Joe and Nile's supper run ends about as well as can be expected.

    My collection of one shots for Whumptober 2020.

    Summary

    Nicolò looks sheepish. "I killed you yesterday, and you awoke at the same time, the same place. But when I die, I wake at different times, different places. This bolt," he tosses it to Yusuf and it lands in the dirt by his knee, "it killed me yesterday, but I woke up many years from now. I lived several lifetimes in those places before returning here and pulling it from my neck."

     

     

    Nicky's lives and deaths are different. He is unstuck from time - at every death he revives into a different point in his life. Each time he is struck down he wonders, will he awaken to deserts and swords? Will it be gunshots in cities? Joe and Nicky build a fractured life together, falling in love across two different sets of centuries, then patiently waiting for the other to fall in love too. He meets the rest of their little family out of order, but they still build a family around Nicky's involuntary time-traveling.

    Summary

    “And it’s enough?” Nile asks. “It’s enough to keep you going?”

    “It’s enough to make me love this world and so many of the people in it,” Joe says, soft but sure. “We can’t change evil. We can only try to end each day having come out on top of it, and hopefully having helped others do the same. It may never go away, but other, better things aren’t ever going away either. That’s so much more important. Vital. That’s what I’d want you to remember, if you can.”

    When you have a seemingly infinite number of days ahead of you, some will turn out well and some won't. And sometimes you can’t tell which is which until the day is over. Nile gets to experience the whole gamut with each of her new family members while finding her way through this weird, wonderful immortal life.

    Summary

    They were all intimidating at first. Not that Nile wasn't used to being sized up, but now, these were her people. For however long she had.

    Training with Nicky was simple enough, but Joe was a different story altogether. Andy seemed content to sit back and let her struggle. She preferred to make her own mistakes anyway.

    Summary

    Once, in the earliest days, when she was just starting to wrap her head around the ways her life had changed, the ways she had changed, she’d asked the others what dying felt like for them.

    To Nile, it’s what she imagines it would feel like to be a steady breeze on a cool autumn day. To be thoughtless, formless, unstopped and undisturbed by whatever it flows across.

    In the dark, she moves through like air, and all is soft.

    Beyond the dark, her ribs withdraw from the ripped tissue of her lungs, sharp edges snapping back into place. She’s torn back to life choking on her own blood.

    Summary

    He quickly moved to try and figure out a way to open the door he assumed Nile was behind. This door was much sturdier than the other one, but after a few minutes of trying, he figured it out.

    When he finally opened the door, he saw Nile, who was very obviously in pain, seeing as she hadn’t noticed him. He gave himself a few seconds to look her over, and saw that her legs were both covered in blood. Correction, what was left of her legs was covered in blood, because from the knee down on her left leg and mid-calf down on her right, there was nothing.

    "-Hai già incontrato il nuovo Figo del pronto soccorso? - Chiese Nile, sorseggiando il suo caffelatte. Nicolò capì immediatamente che stesse parlando del dottor Al-Kaysani. L'intero ospedale non parlava d'altro, dell'avvenenza del nuovo medico. Ormai si era arreso a zittire le infermiere che parlavano di lui durante le operazioni. Non lo sorprendeva: era davvero un bell'uomo."

    Summary

    Prince Yusuf and his sister Nile are Givers. With a touch, they can bring a dead body back to life. The boy without a name is a Reaper. He only has to touch a living body to end that life. Neither Givers nor Reapers can die by normal means, but that doesn't mean they cannot feel pain.

    The boy without a name is sent to kill Yusuf, but nothing can kill a Giver. He's captured and imprisoned in a gilded cage meant to keep him safe and confined as the war wages on. Nile is meant to be his guard and guide as Yusuf returns to fight at the front lines. But soon, the boy learns that there is a far deadlier plot a foot amongst Yusuf and Nile's people than him. And he must decide if his loyalty is to the homeland that turned him into a monster, or to Yusuf and Nile who have only ever called him 'friend.'
