    Summary

    Previously titled Forgiveness.

    As Joe walked up the steps, away from the beach and Booker, he turned to look at him once more.

    The complete anguish that he saw Sebastien try and hide broke his heart.

    What were they doing? How had they come to this decision? How could he be so blinded by anger that he could think that he would be able to leave his Sebastien alone for two centuries? And think that even after a century, he would still be unable to forgive the man that he claimed to love.

    Or

    Joe has second thoughts before abandoning Booker. But Nicky is still furious.

    A story about misunderstandings insecurity, lack of communication and a lot more.

    Summary

    " 'Sex is always welcome,' she says casually, making him choke on his drink. 'What? I'm not propositioning you. Unless you want me to?' she asks innocently and Booker feels himself blushing to the roots of his hair.

    'I-, I don't-'

    'Relax, I'm just joking. Though you do seem a little high-strung, so maybe sex isn't such a bad idea.' "

    ---

    OR: on a cold November evening in 1858 Boston, Andy and Booker keep each other company in more ways than one (i.e. heart-to-heart, whiskey and casual sex).

    Summary

    Five minutes later, Nicky carries Joe piggyback, his own backpack on the front of his chest. Joe's faint protests are silent now, his head resting on Nicky's right shoulder and his curls brushing Nicky's cheek regularly in the rhythm of his steps.

     

    With the knowledge that they caused the death of innocents Booker struggles to see a purpose in their doing. Luckily he is not alone and his family helps carry the weight.

    Summary

    “You’re not real. I’m dreaming, hallucinating. You’re not here. You can't be, I have seventy-five years, eight months, three weeks and four days left. I can't have you. Your touch. Your hugs. Your presence.”

    “You can my darling, you can. I promise you can.”

    Emotionally exhausted, and terrified for their relationship, they laid down in a similar manner to which they had at night. This time the older men knew not to let him wake alone.

    Summary

    "Coffee can wait. He returns quietly to his room and throws himself face-first on the bed, burying his head under the pillow. Joe and Nicky are the living proof that true love exists. They're also a constant reminder of how much he's lost and how lonely and miserable he really is. He could never hold their love against them but sometimes he can't help but long for a fraction of what they have. Someone to have a special language with. Someone to pour him coffee when he's too sleepy to function properly. Someone."

    ---

    OR: 5 times Booker is jealous of Joe and Nicky’s relationship and 5 times he isn't (because he has Nile, duh).

    Summary

    If anyone were to ask Booker why he chased Death, he would tell them. It wouldn’t be an answer anyone expected.

    If they asked Joe, he’d say it was because Booker was selfish. If Nicky, he’d say that Booker was naïve. If Andy was asked, she’d probably just laugh and say that Booker was bored.

    But if anyone bothered to ask Booker? He would say that the others weren’t wrong, but they weren’t exactly right, either. Booker would give chase, over and over again, without fail. Because Death gave him the one thing he valued above all others: quiet.


    Booker is incredibly gifted and has an extreme case of hyperthymesia. He doesn’t remember everything. But what he does remember, he just doesn’t forget.

    Summary

    “It seems you were right Nile. There is something deeper going on here.”

    “He was going to stab himself. He was in that much pain. How could we not notice? How could I not notice?” Yusuf’s voice decreased by octaves. The last sentence could only be heard by Nicolo.

    “This is not only his fault. It’s ours too. We are his family. We should have known.”

    “No more exile. He needs us.”

    Summary

    “Have a little faith, Book.”

    When left on the side of the Thames, Booker expects to spend the next century drowning his sorrows by himself. Returning to his flat in Paris though, it's only a matter of time before he's found by Dr. Kozak once again, who definitely won't be letting her key to the next Nobel prize slip away once again. With 99 years left to go before the others will even think to look for him, he knows that this is what he deserves.

    Of course though, the others aren't going to let him suffer, even if this is what he wanted. Cue a rescue mission, lots of comfort, and recovery from all manner of hurts.

    Summary

    “Please. Please I need you. Don't leave me alone.”

    “Sebastien what…”

    Sebastien collapsed into Nicolo’s chest. The older man did not move. Did not make any attempt to hold him or comfort the visibly distressed man.

    “PLEASE!”

    Sobs coming out of the tall man were enough to make Nicolo tear. But he still was mad. Furious.

    It had barely been five years since they’d left Sebastien next to the reservoir. Five short years. Nicolo’s anger had barely even begun to cool. Fury burned through his veins every time the traitor’s name came up. Yusuf’s anger had calmed, not completely, but he was hardly as angry as he had been when he had pushed for the hundred years of exile.

    Summary

    The capture of the team was not supposed to occur. It was only supposed to be him. Sudan was supposed to be a real mission, not a hoax. That was when he knew that something was off. But he was scared, terrified that if they found out how desperate he was to die, they would think him weak. He would lose their regard and that was something that he never wanted.

    He did not know what they thought of him now, but he was sure that he had lost their respect.

    He had no alternative now. No way out. No ally. No friend. No family. What he did have were his feelings. His emotions. His love.
