    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

    "Further down, Joe rubs his jaw against the place where Nicky’s strong thighs become soft. The rough hair of his beard scratches against the skin, but Nicky only encourages Joe on with a gentle flex of his fingers. Joe presses a few open-mouthed kisses there, delighting in the way the muscles flinch, tighten, and then release, trembling a little already. Nicky has always been so wonderfully sensitive just here, and so responsive with his pleasure.

    He’s also a little shit."

    Joe and Nicky, teasing, blow jobs, and being achingly in love. What's not to like?

    Summary

    When Joe landed in NYC and turned up at the apartment he's supposed to be sharing with Booker for the next several months, he wasn't expecting to have the door shut on his face by a grumpy Italian instead.

    When Nicky walked out of an 8-year relationship and crashed at Booker's apartment to figure things out, he wasn't expecting to have his life turned upside down by his unwanted new housemate instead.

    And neither was expecting to find his second chance at love, family and belonging in the other.

    Summary

    A/B/O, but make is more canon compliant. In which Andy, Quynh, and Joe are alphas, Nile and Booker betas, and Nicky is an omega. Not that their designations really matter. None of them are exactly traditional.

    Chapter One: Nile observes her new family, watching them interact, and watching how they all lover one another despite everything. Yeah, she would fit in just fine.

    Chapter Two: Nicolò had been raised to hate being an omega, to hate his heat, to hate his very body. But Yusuf teaches him otherwise, and helps him realise that he has nothing to be ashamed of. Nicolò loved him desperately and fiercely.

    Chapter Three: Andromache had never really wanted to to the whole big sister thing, and definitly never wanted to do the whole mothering thing, but after meeting Yusuf and Nicolò, she was changing her tune. The boys just brought out her protective instincts, and she'd learned to embrace it. Slightly begrudgingly.

    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

    He had never really thought about being a father while growing up.

    Well, he had assumed he would eventually be a father. It would happen in that same nebulous way he knew he would one day take over his father’s business, get married, grow old, retire and eventually die of old age surrounded by his family.

    Summary

    As an Alpha, Joe knew it was expected of him to keep his head steady and provide for his omega, needing to take care of him now more than ever.

     

    He also knew Nicky would shoot him if he found out he was letting societal rules get to him. But he couldn’t help it. He was afraid. What if he messed up? What if their kid hated him? What if he couldn’t protect them like he should? What if he wasn’t ready? What if Nicky started hating him for being a terrible father?

    Joe is worried he's not going to be a good father. Nicky assures him that he will.

    Summary

    “Today I met a boy who escaped al-Quds,” Yusuf says, and Nicolò stares back at him this time. His clean face is solemn, his pale eyes almost sad, and Yusuf wishes he could see some anger in them. Anything but this. “They killed his whole family.”

    “When you say them,” Nicolò blinks, and there is a twitch in his strong jaw. “You mean me. My people.”

    Yusuf feels he has been running his whole life.

    He ran from his duties as the family’s heir when he refused to marry the woman chosen by his parents. Yusuf eventually made a new home in Jerusalem, and he thought he was done running. Then the Franks laid their siege and Yusuf was killed and brought back to life too many times. Before he realised, he was on the run again. Only this time, he is not alone.

    Or; a road trip around the Mediterranean in which Yusuf struggles with his new life, searches for the women in his dreams and learns how to open his heart. Also, there is only one bed.

    Summary

    Nile sank down to the couch, watching as Nicky walked straight into Joe’s arms – no hesitation, no moment of surprise – sliding his arms around Joe’s waist. As they stood there, slotted together like puzzle pieces, Nile could make out that Nicky was saying something, his head tucked into Joe’s neck, Joe listening intently, his head bent, his hand absently stroking Nicky’s back. When Nicky drew away a moment later, Nile felt her heart clench at the sight of him, his eyes and the nose red, his face damp.

    She had never, not in the five years she had been part of this dysfunctional family, ever seen the stoic Nicky cry.
    *
    Or what happens after Nicky gets back to the safe house from the coffeeshop.

    Summary

    "What do I mean with...?" Nile starts in disbelief and then gestures at the immortals, as good as possible without taking her eyes off the traffic. “I can still understand that with Joe, after all, he and Nicky are basically married. But Booker hasn't let go of Nicky's leg since the beginning of the ride and you, Andy, climbed back to touch Nicky's shoulder.”

     

    Nile has already gotten used to the fact that Nicky is always the first to start the day and the lightest sleeper. But after a long mission she finds herself learning new things about Nicky and her new family.

    Summary

    Water. Seemingly infinite water. Deep, dark, freezing and eternal. The claustrophobia. The metal, sharp, bloodying fists. An eternal cycle of coming and going, fading in and out with no end. Again and again. Every time, a piece of self coming loose and shattering, coming undone and remade into a vessel of rage and destruction…

    Thousands of miles away, Sebastien wakes from the recurring horror, cold sweat over his body that freezes in the frigid air of a December night in England, gasping for breath...

    Summary

    “Perdonami,” he said with a slight smile. “Are you alright?” She stared dumbly up at him. God, he even sounded like… but it wasn’t him, obviously. Dr. Nicholas Smith, Dr. Nicky, as they’d called him, he would be in his mid-60s at least by now. This guy, in a hoodie and jeans, brown hair flopping over his forehead, he was in his late 20s or early 30s at the most. She shook her head, and opened her mouth to apologize, but lost her voice at the sight of his eyes. The profile, the birthmark, the accent, and the eyes.

    It was over 30 years since she’d last seen eyes that particular shade of blue-green.

     

    Or what happens when one of the kids Joe and Nicky fostered back in the early 90s accidentally runs into Nicky at a coffee shop three decades later.

    Summary

    “What have I done to deserve someone like you?” Yusuf mused, drawing Nicolò’s head up with a gentle touch.

    “I could ask the same,” Nicolò rasped.

    “Well,” Yusuf said, “perhaps we both did something extraordinary to have found each other.”

    ~~~

    They may have different wants and needs, but that was alright. Yusuf would always be there for Nicolò, just as Nicolò was always there for him.

    Summary

    Prompt fill for this prompt at The Old Guard Kink Meme:

    Joe falls in love easily and it's brought him a lot more disappointment than happiness. The people he falls for might be nice in the beginning, but once the honeymoon period is over it seems like they always find something to criticize. So after a string of relationships that always seem to end with his partners being critical of things that make Joe who he is, Joe comes into his 30s convinced he'll never settle down happily.

    Then he meets Nicky, who seems to be genuinely nice and always says the nicest things about Joe's art. Joe has gotten his heart broken too many times to be willing to give this a chance, but over the course of many months and Nicky proving him wrong time and time again, Joe slowly starts to think his love life might not be a lost cause after all.

    Summary

    Nicolò diGenova was a man training to be a priest, his life laid out before him, before he killed a man and ended up in Old Guard Prison, sentenced to 80 years, where the prisoners and guards are waiting to tear him apart. This is his punishment and he is not afraid to face it. This is where he expects to live out the rest of his life in penance. What he isn't expecting is Yusuf "Joe" Al-Kaysani, a fellow prisoner in for grand larceny, and the crashing of their two orbits. As Nicky fights to survive and Joe struggles not to feel anything for the former priest-turned convicted killer, they may find solace and purpose in each other. This is how they fall in love, fight to survive, and try to make a life in the worst of conditions.

    Summary

    It's one night during dinner that Nicolò brings the subject to the table, he asks if everything is alright with Yusuf and when his man answers that it is, he complains about their distance. Yusuf shares his thoughts with Nicolò who is left speechless.

    — You think I’m going to want somebody else eventually? — Nicolò asks, crossing his arms in front of his chest; he looks down trying to understand where that idea came from.

    — Forever is a long time, Nico. I’ll understand, — he answers in a sad tone.

    — Can I show you how wrong you are? — Nicolò asks, his piercing green eyes watching Yusuf.

    Summary

    “Like I said,” he teased, ushering Nicolò outside. “I wanted to celebrate. It’s been a century since we met.”

    Nicolò sat down on the grass, gazing out to the water.

    Yusuf wished they could stay there forever, in their small cabin by the sea. Nicolò looked so at peace here, so happy, and Yusuf knew he would do anything to keep him this way.

    “It’s August,” Nicolò said dryly, taking a sip of his wine. “We met, if you want to call it that, in July.”

    Yusuf waved a hand. “Details, details.”

    ~~~

    One hundred years after meeting for the first time, Yusuf and Nicolò have a conversation by the sea.
