    Summary

    Prince Yusuf and his sister Nile are Givers. With a touch, they can bring a dead body back to life. The boy without a name is a Reaper. He only has to touch a living body to end that life. Neither Givers nor Reapers can die by normal means, but that doesn't mean they cannot feel pain.

    The boy without a name is sent to kill Yusuf, but nothing can kill a Giver. He's captured and imprisoned in a gilded cage meant to keep him safe and confined as the war wages on. Nile is meant to be his guard and guide as Yusuf returns to fight at the front lines. But soon, the boy learns that there is a far deadlier plot a foot amongst Yusuf and Nile's people than him. And he must decide if his loyalty is to the homeland that turned him into a monster, or to Yusuf and Nile who have only ever called him 'friend.'

    Summary

    - Joe came to London hoping to become a famous artist. He had to leave behind a family that doesn't approve of his choices, he’s also in love with love, which is why he often ends up suffering.
    Nicky arrived in London dreaming of opening a restaurant but ended up trapped in a very abusive relationship that put his whole life on hold.
    Their paths cross by chance and it all starts under the worst possible circumstances, so how is it going to end?

    - Joe/Nicky is my OTP, other pairings are just mentioned/implied.

    - Warning! Please read the tags carefully. This story will contain tooth rotting fluff, but also refernces to racism, domestic violence, non con and other definitely not nice things.

    - Title is stolen from one of the most beautiful song ever sung, "Me and Bobby McGee" by Janis Joplin ♥

    Summary

    Joe is an art student majoring in Illustration (with a minor in poetry) at the Merrick College of Art and Design (MCAD). He might appear a little rough around the edges with his leather jackets and devil-may-care nonchalance. But really he writes poetry on the side, and grew up with grand ideas about romance and love . . . just waiting for the right guy who can handle his intensity. Because once he falls for someone, once he gives them his heart, it will be forever.

    Nicolò - Nico - is doing a study abroad program for a semester at MCAD. He's studying photography, and deciding whether he might like to stay in America. There's a little bit of culture shock happening, and when his student budget runs out he begins working odd jobs here and there. He never thought that list might include modeling nude, but he cannot eat one more box of ramen . . . and it it happens to be in Joe's class (who he might have noticed around campus before ducking behind a column when he looked his way) - well, even better.

    Summary

    Joe officially meets Nicky when one of his infamous bludgers knocks Joe clean off his broom, breaking two ribs and making him blackout as he falls. He’s forty metres up.


    A professional Quidditch AU with an auspicious beginning for a certain Beater and Seeker, a muggle-born Chaser finding her feet with(out) the dubious mentorship of a very tired Keeper, and an Italy versus France rivalry that apparently transcends even magic and every single sport.

    Summary

    All of this scared me. Yusuf scared me. He scared me with his easy repudiation of my beliefs, his laughter, the way he looked at me, the things he made me think. My belief in God scared me too, standing as it did on shaking legs. I had suffered for Him and suffering should have proven my love, but it never made anything better. But who was I, if I was not a God-fearing man? What would I become?

    If you will not die, why continue to suffer?

    I stopped walking and sat in the grass, looking out at the mountains as the moon and clouds cast dark shadows upon them. Beautiful and unknowable, like…

    “Like God,“ I muttered to myself. But of course I really meant, like Yusuf.
