    Summary

    “J-Joe?” Nicky tries, heart pounding in his ears.

    Joe’s shaking his head, scrambling backwards and away, looking over Nicky with a wide, disbelieving gaze.

    “No, it can’t be. I watched you die. We burned your body, Nicky- what the fuck is going on?” Joe asks, his voice a quiver that cuts to the quick .

    Nicky wishes he had an answer."

    One universe's Joe lost his Nicky; in the other, Nicky lost his Joe. Now they've been thrown together, and everything is not okay.

    Summary

    "Nicky's mood keeps swinging wildly between frustration and arousal and if he could, he'd drag Joe to the restroom, lock themselves in a stall and fuck him to oblivion. He can't, though, not tonight, not in this restaurant, not while having dinner with people he's trying to convince to spill the beans on as much stuff as possible. Joe knows this too and he seems to derive an unhealthy amount of pleasure out of watching Nicky squirm in his seat. And then the bastard orders cannoli for dessert."

    ---

    OR: Making Joe pay for being such a tease is probably Nicky's most favourite pastime.

    Summary

    Di Genova crowds him back against his car, getting right up into his face, so close that Joe has to look down an inch or so to meet the man's furious gaze.
    "You've been watching my home," the man growls, surprising Joe with an Italian accent. Not US-born, then. "I saw you yesterday."
    "I don't know what you're talking about, man," Joe tries, even though he knows it's futile. This isn't good.
    "No?" The man's hands come up to grip Joe's shirt at the shoulders. His face is thunderous, his eyes ice cold, and his voice shakes with anger. "So you aren't looking to auction off my baby sister's cherry?"

    Summary

    “Why?” Yusuf asked. “Why here? Why now?”

    Nicolò sat back on his haunches, dropping his hands to rest on his knees. It was comforting, in a way, to be kneeling on the cold, hard floor of a Cathedral. But this time he was not worshipping God, not worshipping saints or stone effigies. This time he was worshipping his lover, the only being who deserved his devotion.

    “I have no need to worship God,” he said simply. “Not now, not anymore. I’d much rather worship you.”

    Summary

    “Nicolò,” Yusuf said quietly in his ear. Nicolò turned to look at him. He was very close, which Nicolò shouldn’t have been surprised by since he was the one holding him up, but it still caused him to catch his breath. His face hadn’t changed at all since the day they met, except that it smiled at him a lot more now. Yusuf took his arm from Nicolò’s shoulder, grabbed his hand, and grinned. “Run.”

     

    In which Nicolò gets drunk for the first time in over a century, gets into an ill-advised fight with Steven Merrick's great-great-great-etc-grandfather, and sparks a chase across Europe where there are a surprising number of baths and the local inn always seems to have only one bed.

    Summary

    On Nicolò’s first day of battle, he kills a man and is killed by him in turn. But somehow he wakes the next morning, unharmed, only to find that today is yesterday, and both he and his killer yet live. God must have a purpose for Nicolò; he must relive the same day again and again until he completes his holy mission. He does not intend to fail.

    Summary

    "There’s something in bread, warm, carved or torn open and passed along, slathered with olive oil or butter. Offered. An offering from salted fingertips. There’s something sacred and old, familiar, in the making and preparing of food for the ones he loves."

    A rumination on food and love. Or, the Nicky thesis.

    Summary

    The Abbasid Caliph, Yusuf al-Kaysani, was a vehement patron of the arts. Nicolò di Genova, would often watch the noble’s nimble hands as they danced across the parchment paper, his lithe fingers always stained with charcoal. The Roman guard would accompany the kind ruler everywhere he went, his shoulders always tense and muscles ready to spring into action.

    --or--
    Based on the following tumblr post by @the-modern-typewriter
    "Would it kill you to relax?" the monarch teased their guard. "Probably," the guard replied. "Likely it would kill you too. That's rather the point."
    A smile flashed across the monarch's face. I'll risk it," they said, and held out a hand. "Dance with me."

    Summary

    “But you must have people in Genova who love you! Won’t your family miss you?” Yusuf insists.

    “As I have told you," Nicolò says through gritted teeth, "my father died, my blessed mother has not one sensible bone in her body, my stepfather and my brothers are assholes, and my sister married a very unsettling apothecary. The only thing I miss about the monastery is Brother Guglielmo’s wine. And his blowjobs, but frankly you are improving so it’s becoming less of a concern.”

    Yusuf blinks, makes a sound like a sheep being dragged off to slaughter, and stalks off. “Why do I even bother,” he hisses over his shoulder.

    Or: there are minor deceptions, unwanted family reunions, Nicolò is trying, and shockingly, nobody dies.

    Summary

    Never let it be said that Nicky didn’t know how to prioritise. When he was focused on something, he invariably saw it through to completion, regardless of what else was going on around him. This was not to say he was unaware of his surroundings; no, he simply rolled with what happened and stuck to his goal.

    So when the earthquake hit while he was balls-deep in Joe, who was just starting to make those breathy little whines that drove Nicky wild, it took him approximately 0.5 seconds to make the decision. He was going to see this through.

    Summary

    “I’m not going to pay you for sex,” Nicky says, flatly, as certain parts of his anatomy scream at him in protest. His brain is sure of that decision. Other appendages are decidedly less so.

    “How about you let me kiss you.” The man reaches out and picks up Nicky’s pale blue tie, folding it between deft, elegant fingers. Nicky doesn’t know when he got in so close. He’s suddenly a foot away from the man without remembering moving in. “Just for fun. No charge.”

    Summary

    Nicky has an inconsistent relationship with sleep when they’re on missions. He wants it, it eludes him; it wants him, he evades it. Only during their irregular periods of downtime do Nicky and sleep manage to work out their differences, synchronise and embrace each other properly. But this brings with it a new challenge.

    The slightest disturbance draws Nicky into a semi-aware state, and he employs the extreme stealth tactics he’s honed over the centuries to extract himself from Joe’s koala-like grip. A ripple of red wrongness pulls at him.

    “Joe. It is in here. Stay back and I will destroy the threat, my heart.” Nicky stirs the poker through the bag until it collides with a solid object, the muffled clink of metal against glass bringing Nicky’s attention to point. “Aha! There it is. The interloper. That vile, florid, disgraceful excuse for…” Nicky pauses to swallow down his disgust, unable to utter the word “food” in the context of the atrocity lurking inside the bag. “That thing.”

    Summary

    Yusuf sighs sleepily and tosses his head to the side, and Nicolò stills for a moment. He doesn’t want Yusuf to wake just yet. Outside their tent the wind howls and rain pelts into the thick canvas but inside they’re warm and dry. Yusuf’s skin glows in the blue rays from the full moon that filter in through the space between the flaps, and Nicolò just wants to look at him a while longer. To marvel at him, to treasure him, to send up a prayer of thanks for anyone who might still be listening to a sinner for bringing him to Yusuf’s light.

    Summary

    It had been a normal mission. Nothing they hadn’t handled a thousand times before. Joe had gone down, and Nicky had finished off their assailants before kneeling beside him and waiting for him to wake. 
    But he hadn’t.
    Nicky had watched the wound close over, watched him take his first breath, but Joe hadn’t opened his eyes. Even after Nile and Andy found them, after they returned to the safehouse, after they’d waited a day, he hadn’t woken up.
    As far as Nicky knows, this should not be happening. And yet it is, with no foreseeable end in sight.
