    Summary

    Joe is a single father of two wonderful twins. Unfortunately, he has the worst luck when it comes to keeping babysitters long term. Nicky is looking for another job to help pay the rent when he stumbles across an oddly phrased “help wanted” advertisement and decides to call the number. What ensues is far more than what either man could have dreamed.

    A tale of two lost souls who find each other and, with the help of their meddling friends and two mischievous six year olds, find their happily ever after as well.

    Summary

    A few years after their first deaths, Nicolo realizes that if they want to see their families again, he and Yusuf will have to visit soon--if they wait much longer, their lack of aging will become impossible to hide. Yusuf agrees, but he wants to tell his mother about their new gifts, whereas Nicolo decides to keep them secret from his own mother.

    A thousand years later, Nile grapples with the same question: should she tell her mother about her immortality? Nicky and Joe both have different answers based on their own experiences, but the only one who can make that decision is Nile herself.

    Or, a tale as old as time, a story of mothers and their children.

    Summary

    Nile closes the front door behind her softly as she steps out onto the porch, the wooden deck warm under her bare feet in the evening. She pushes herself up to sit on the porch wall, leaning back against one of the beams as she watches the file download on her phone screen. She has no idea what it could be. Copley just forwarded her a message straight from Booker that had just said that she may want privacy when she listens to it. 

    When the file finishes downloading, she taps her finger over the play button. Unable to help the slight feeling of uncertain nerves that flutter inside of her.

    Her earbuds crackle as somebody moves the microphone.

    “Nile,” Booker starts on the recording, his voice sounding rough and tired. “You told me before that all you wanted was to hear your mothers voice one last time. While you cannot see her again in person, I hope this brings some comfort.” 
    .
    .
    .
    Booker had been responsible for Nile's rough introduction to immortality, to make amends, the first action of his exile is to try and bring her some peace.

    Summary

    Hartenstraat AU

    After a life-threatening accident derails his life, Nicky pursues his original dream of being an illustrator. But that, alongside adjusting to civilian life, almost proves too difficult until Nile suggests he design the logo for The Aubergenie, a bakery co-owned by Sébastien and Joe.

    In between a bad first impression and a second chance, Nicky unwittingly saves Joe’s daughter. Suddenly, he finds himself a part of their lives, falling in love with them both as he works on the logo and a story inspired by them—and counting down til this fantasy falls apart.

    Despite their connection being too good to be true, various struggles, worries and expectations culminate in a heart-breaking misunderstanding that threatens to divide them before they can truly be together.

    Will they be able to salvage what they had, or had they burned too bright to last?

    Summary

    Booker is going to meet his girlfriend's parents. His girlfriend who is Nile Freeman, the most unimaginably majestic goddess who has ever walked this otherwise godforsaken crust of a planet. His girlfriend who is two years younger than him despite them both being in their senior year, because she is a literal genius who started college at just 16. Her parents are going to murder him.

    Featuring a heavy dollop of interfaith friendship adorableness/nerdery and snarky Jewish Booker being a proud combatant in the War on Xmas (but not with Nile's parents).

    This story is brought to you by autocorrect, questionable delivery services, holiday clapbacks over the deviled eggs, and the worms that live in the mud that grad students refer to as their “brains.”

    Summary

    “I just- I always thought I would be there to congratulate him myself, you know?” Nile feels Quynh nod into her neck. “I never thought he would have to go through this alone.”

    “I do not think he was alone,” says Quynh, “look.”

    ---

    Being immortal means that one will be forced to leave people behind as time moves on. That doesn't mean Nile can't keep an eye on them though, nor that Quynh has forgotten hers.

    Summary

    On realising that Nile is still missing her family and never got a proper chance to say goodbye, Nicky volunteers to call her Mom and let the youngest member of their team have the closure that he himself never got.

     

    Nile saying that she wishes she could hear her Mom's voice one last time got me thinking about giving her that closure and because Nicky is a sweetheart I think he would be the one to volunteer to help.

    Summary

    Throughout her years, even before her first death, she’s made a habit of cataloging the exact distance she was from her hometown of Chicago. It was her little ritual, pulling up either her phone or a map, spanning the distance with her fingers. 6,987 miles, and then 4,130 miles, 3,879 miles, 5,148 miles, on and on and on.
    It hurt, but it was good too, seeing how lives kept moving, kept growing and changing. The world turned and Nile and her new family walked through it. Time like water. You’d think one could get used to physical distance.
    But nothing could have really prepared her for this.

    A study of Nile through time.

    Summary

    It is a truth universally acknowledged that a zombie in possession of brains must be in want of more brains.

    Or, Yusuf Al-Kaysani protects his sister's secret, kills zombies, and will definitely never fall in love with that cold-hearted, arrogant Nicolò di Genova.

    Or, I really wanted to write Joe/Nicky Regency fic but still have them kill things. Enjoy!

    Summary

    The line ran three times before someone answered, and Nile had to steady herself against the porch railing, the flip phone shaking in her hand.

    “Hello?” The woman on the other end said.

    Hi Mom, Nile thought, but didn’t say.

    “Hi,” she forced a false cheer into her voice. “I’m Megan with Northeast Solar. I was wondering if you would be interested in switching your home to solar energy.”
