    Summary

    Nile's going through the motions one particular day; everything seems to be going to shit whilst she's away from home, dumped and stressed out. then she gets on a train, and things get a little better (after getting momentarily worse). all because of a stranger that's slightly intimidating, another stranger who can't read a room, one more stranger who can passionately talk for hours and, you guessed it, a frenchman.
    POV you're getting a train out of london because of a national petrol shortage which ultimately leads you to get a therapy session with a bunch of people you've known less than 12 hours

    Summary

    The kitchen was cluttered and lived in. All the appliances were older than Nile by at least three decades, but she found her way around. She had to dust off a couple of pots since they were in the back of the cupboards, where Nicky hadn't been able to reach since he had passed the 36-week mark.

    Nile is feeling homesick on her first Christmas away from her family. As she decides to indulge in some comfort food, she finds out she might be less alone than she first thought.

    Summary

    She’s dimly aware of Booker’s muted voice calling out to her from the phone but she can’t focus on it, can’t breathe. 

    Everything she’s been holding down comes rushing to the surface - tidal and overwhelming -  and there is absolutely nothing she can do to stop it apart from sit there, taking great, gulping gasps in an effort to force some air back into her lungs. 

    Getting shot at hurt. Falling from a seventy story building hurt. Getting her throat slit open hurt.

    But this is different. This pain is incapacitating, engulfing, and Nile feels it everywhere . 

    In her head where her mom used to press the softest kisses. In the space on her shoulders, that her brother began to lean on the second he got taller than her. In her hands, her knees, the places her father would rub gently whenever she grazed them. 

    Nile can feel it. 

     

    Alternatively:
    Four times Nile says she's okay and the one time she really, really isn't.

    Summary

    “He is fated to die today, the fourteenth of April in 2019.” Andromache tilted her head as she studied Yusuf’s body. “That is immutable. He has already died. But we could give him another chance at the day.”
    “Restart it?” Nile leaned forward eagerly. “We could warn him, or stop-”
    “No. He has to thwart death on his own terms, and it will hunt him throughout this process. He will repeat this day, with memory of those before it, and if at the end of seven days, he survives to April fifteenth with his soulmate at his side, he can live. If he dies on the seventh day, then that is his final death and time will progress from there. Is that understood?” 

    Joe is an art restoration technician who has been falling in love with Nicky, a baker near him, for the last two months. He's sure they're soulmates and is confident in their future together.
    The only catch is his death. At least he's got a spirit guide on his side to avoid it.

    Summary

    Andy had called Nile “kid,” so she’d expected all the others to look, and be, much older than her. She hadn’t expected two of the men to look like some of the youngest Marine recruits she’d served with, the ones who enlisted the day they turned eighteen.

    Nile meets her new immortal family: a French soldier, two warriors from the Crusades, a Roman soldier, a gladiator, and a woman who doesn't even remember her age.

    (A crossover of The Old Guard movie and The Eagle of the Ninth book)

    At the safe house in Goussainville, he could barely disguise his interest. There was Andy and Quỳnh, after all, and Joe and Nicky. Was she supposed to be his, just 200 years late?

    Then, it all went to hell. Nile hurled herself from a window. Booker offered her his hand. She accepted. Everything changed. Nobody realized.

    ---

    Booker and Nile are generally smart and usually rational immortal beings. They make decisions all the time. So why do Nile's visits always seem to bring warmth and sunshine to Paris? And why does this thing between them feel like destiny?

    Or, a Hades and Persephone fusion in which Booker and Nile find family, find each other, and find their fate.

    Summary

    “So, what has you awake this early in the morning?”

    Nicky gazes into his cup as if it holds the answer to her question. “I have a lot on my mind as well,” he admits.

    “Because of Booker?” Nile asks hesitantly, not sure if it’s okay to bring him up.

    “That too,” Nicky confirms. He sighs and shakes his head. “But it is not just his actions that are troubling me.”

    Nile takes a guess. “Andy?”

    Andy’s mortality changes everything for the team.

    Or: Five times Nile sees Nicky taking care of Andy after she becomes mortal, and one time she sees Andy returning the favor.

    Summary

    Nile thought abruptly back to Princess Jasmine from Disney’s Aladdin, and how she used to call her “the most beautifulest person ever”. She thought about her secret crush on Hermione from the Harry Potter series, her frighteningly intense feelings for Dizzy, and even about the random woman at the bar she’d seen, long ago now. She thought about how kissing boys had felt wrong, even when they had been wonderful people.

    She thought about how she didn’t want to pretend anymore. Not to herself, and not to her family.
