    Summary

    By the time they’ve actually stepped under the water, a small amount of steam has actually begun to fill the bathroom, and Nicky stifles a groan of relief as the hot water sluices over his shoulders. Joe gives a low rumbling laugh in response, and reaches over Nicky’s shoulder for the 30 year old bottle of shampoo sitting on the small wire shelf. Nicky turns away from him quietly, offering him access to his hair.

     

    “No,” Joe gasps suddenly, fear tinting the edge of his voice. “No, please, face me, I can’t bear it.”

    Yet another "Joe washes Nicky's hair after Merrick's lab" fic, this time with some art.

    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

    Nile witnesses the ways in which Nicky loves Joe.

    I think that most of the time, when we think about the ways in which characters love each other, we think about how they show love directly to each other and in front of each other. But what about the ways they love each other when their other half isn’t around? How does Nicky love Joe when Joe isn’t there to see it?

    Summary

    “Besides, you and Andromache were bemoaning my flowery declarations of love just the other day! Nico finds them charming.”

    “Oh, I’m not arguing that.” Quynh says, “But when Nicolò says or does something similar, I would think you a young maiden meeting her betrothed for the first time.”

    He opens his mouth to respond but the thing is - Quynh is right. He and Nicolò confessed their love for each other decades ago but he’ll still look at Nico sometimes and be overwhelmed by the aching, beautiful way he loves him. And when Nicolò expresses the same to him, in that honest, straightforward way of his, Yusuf doesn’t think there’s any choice but to melt.

    Or: Joe being an absolute goner for Nicky's expressions of love throughout the years.
