    Summary

    “Okay, I’m going to need your contact information and I’ll have to ask a few questions about what it is you’ll be needing during your rut. Is that alright?”

    “Yes, yes, of course,” Nicky says, aware that he’s panicking and it reads in his tone. “Before you accept my booking, you need to—“

    “It will be just fine,” Joe says, smooth and professional. “Why don’t we start with your name?”

    “That’s just it,” Nicky says miserably. “It’s Nicolò di Genova.”

    There’s a long pause. “Oh,” Joe says.

    He hasn’t hung up, which is what Nicky was expecting, so he uses the silence to start apologizing.

    In which both Joe and Nicky struggle to fit into a world where your cycle determines so much about your romantic prospects when neither of them have typical cycles or even know if they want that kind of romantic relationship. In which Joe co-runs a center where people with atypical heat and rut cycles can come and receive the help they need. In which Nicky really wishes he hadn't written a series of very stupid letters to the editor of the local paper back when he was pretending he didn't need the kind of help Joe was offering.

    Summary

    Joe and Nicky have made a life with each other in their little house in Amsterdam Centrum. There’s a koi pond in the back courtyard, fresh herbs growing in the windowsill, and art on all the walls. Things are uncomplicated.

    Then, one day, Nile Freeman shows up at their door.

    Summary

    It’s been a terribly lazy month. An endless stream of market visits and winding drives through the Laurentians and late night drinks in hidden bars and savoury breakfasts cooked by a Nicky wearing Joe’s t-shirts and nothing else. And Joe feels soft. He feels loved. He feels desired and desirous, all the time, and maybe that’s why he pulls Nicky to a gentle stop on the sidewalk.

    Two immortals walk into a sex shop. This is what happens next.

    Now with part two!

    Summary

    It’s unfortunate that Nicky was at the same nightclub as him tonight, that Joe spotted him across the room throwing back shots, that Joe was unable to look away from the long line of his throat. It’s even more unfortunate that Nicky caught his eye and smiled so fucking widely before coming over to greet him; there was no polite way to escape the interaction, and all Joe could do was match Nicky shot for shot.

    Nicky’s hand was clumsy on his arm, Nicky’s breath was mostly vodka ghosting over his face, when he leaned close and asked Joe if maybe he’d like to get out of there.

    Joe was drunk as fuck and unable to say anything besides, “Sorry, I don’t fuck Christian missionaries.”

    (In which Nicky thinks the mission trips he went on as a teen are a net positive for the world and Joe has a problem with that. (Un)Fortunately, it's not enough to stop him from hooking up with Nicky.)

    Summary

    Joe squints a little. “So you were born in what, the 1060s?”

    Nicky nods. “1069, I believe. I died during the first crusade. For the first time, anyway.”

    “Wow,” Joe says. “You are very well preserved.”

     

    Joe's a millennial with student loan debt, a dead-end career as a personal trainer, and a lumpy futon for a bed. He's also the new immortal.
