    “Mr. Al-Kaysani?”

    “Baba?”

    Professor Yusuf Al-Kaysani meets a beautiful paramedic and finds more than he could have dreamed.

    Summary

    “I’m so so sorry. I didn’t mean to lead you on. We… we can’t exactly ‘see where this goes’.”

    He stared back at him, half of his mind waiting for the ground to swallow him up. “Let me guess. Married?”

    His expression softened as he shook his head, a genuine look of guilt crossing his face.

    Oh fuck. Not again. “Straight?” His voice came out in a croak as he asked.

    He didn’t move his head this time but the ‘no’ felt unspoken. He was ready to hear he was just plain not interested.

    “I… I’m a priest.”

    Summary

    Joe has it all, and he has more. He is very happily married to the love of his life, he loves his job, and even the mornings don't seem quite that dreadful when it's his Nicky who he is waking up next to. It's definitely not what he had expected, ten years ago.

    Of course, he should have known that happiness never lasts. That contentment is the most dangerous of mindsets. When Nicky gets terribly injured in a car accident, Joe is left alone and reeling, with just the crumbling remains of his once tightly-knit friend group to back him up, and a whole load of memories.

    Summary

    Come down slowly, Joe thinks hysterically as he descends the ladder right into the arms of this man who, very unfortunately, smells incredibly good, just a hint of sandalwood on his skin, and feels incredibly firm and comforting against Joe as he makes sure the ladder doesn’t break while Joe’s still on it. Come down slowly, he thinks, and imagines, against his better judgment, coming down slowly next to this man in bed.

    If only his opinions on literature weren’t so wrong.

    (In which Joe is accidentally seduced into happiness by Schrödinger's hipster.)

    Summary

    Nile is so close to finishing this article for submission, she can practically taste it.
    Except the stupidly hot librarian is about to make her eat her words because he won't give her the books she needs

    Based on the prompt: I work in the library and I’m a little concerned for your health because you never stop studying

    Summary

    Nicolo Genova, or Nicky to his American friends, is just trying to get through his PhD program. He's writing his dissertation on Post-classical homoerotic poetry, but he cannot find anyone who speaks an extinct dialect of Arabic so he can translate a famed love poem by a little known poet, al-Kaysani.

    Strangely enough, his friend knows a professor on campus who can translate the poem. What starts as a simple request for assistance on his dissertation blossoms into something that Nicky -- shy, reserved Nicky who abandoned his plans for the priesthood months before ordination -- had never imagined for himself: true love.

    What he doesn't know is that Dr. Joseph Jones (his handsome, erudite, kind, lovely Joe) is harboring a secret too large for anyone to believe -- and that secret might just cost them everything.

    Summary

    When Nile decided on doing a PhD in Rotterdam and went through the process of applying, she had imagined meetings with her supervisor as the two of them looking over her research and her sighing in frustration at what an uphill battle the - necessary but endless - revisions they decided on would be.
    What Nile hadn’t particularly anticipated was that so much of being a PhD candidate would be drinking cups of truly excellent mint tea in Professor al Kaysani’s office and being asked about how she felt about her academic career and life in general.

    Summary

    It should’ve been a walk in the park. Nile had done assignments like these a million times, and could practically do it in her sleep. Joe had assigned her to a man named Nicolò. He had been the man who Nile had run into on the very first day of classes. The man who never seemed to have any materials ready, and usually sat in the back in silence, never contributing anything. Nile had to school her face so her displeasure wouldn’t be seen through.

    _________________________________________________________________________________________________________

    College au, where Nile is a student, Joe is a professor, and Nicky is also a student but drives Nile insane.
