    Summary

    “... And you should really get your cat spayed,” Earl says smugly, staring at Goose who is resting a few feet away, licking her paw.

    Shit.

    Goose eats Earl. Nick files an incident report and takes Goose to the lab to wait for her to barf up Earl because Nick is tired of replacing the accent rug in his office. Finance has gotten really stingy with the office budget lately, and Goose’s cat-flerken vomit reeks.

    HR assigns Goose her own incident code and installs a BEWARE OF CAT sign on Nick's office door under his nameplate. Earl stops offering unsolicited advice, and Nick buys Goose one of the new expensive horizontal scratching posts that looks like a wave.

    Goose looks way too pleased with herself.

    --

    All the things Goose has eaten and the all the things people have called Nicholas J. Fury, with or without his consent.

    Summary

    David Rose—handsome, clever, perhaps not quite so rich as he once was—is quite determined to bring his match-making skills to the town of S—— Creek. But what's the difference between match-making and meddling, especially where his own heart might be concerned?

    Copley didn't worry, exactly, but he did draw up a couple of contingency plans, just in case. None of those plans involved Booker showing up on his doorstep one Tuesday morning.

    Summary

    "Do you think we'll dream of each other, now?" Nicolò asks unexpectedly. "Like we do those two women?"

    It startles a real laugh out of Yusuf. "Who knows? Sometimes, Nicolò, I think I must have dreamed you entirely."

    After escaping the fall of Jerusalem together, Yusuf walks away from Nicolò in order to return home and move on with his life. It works for a while. Fifteen years later, Nicolò shows up in his dreams of the two immortal women.

    (In which Yusuf needs time to come to terms with destiny, and Nicolò to make peace with himself, before they can meet on equal ground.)

    Summary

    He knew a day like this might come, but had still managed to cling to the hope that it wouldn’t. To the hope that he’d be left to his peace and solitude in this place, that the quarterly reports would be enough. That the Order and the galaxy at large might forget him beneath a pile of blue dust.

    Apparently not.

    Summary

    Tainted by your encounter with the Sith, you are, Obi-Wan imagines Master Yoda saying. Fix you, we cannot. To the AgriCorps, you shall return.

    Summary

    5 times Nile was baffled by her second family’s aversion to certain modern inventions and 1 time her family was thrilled to learn that she would’ve fit right in with them centuries ago.

    Nile turns to where Joe is sketching on the couch beside her, hoping to get some enlightenment. Pausing to glance up at Nile Joe shrugs. “Don’t look at me. My heart can be an ornery old man at times,” he remarks blithely, whining when his ear is flicked in retaliation. Rolling her eyes, Nile turns back to her music and sketch. The same man who insists on having the latest sniper rifle model refuses to listen to music on an iPhone. Honestly she shouldn’t be surprised anymore.

    Summary

    “Andy said it was going to be awhile,” Joe answers. “You know what that means, we have some major time to kill. I thought we could spend that time somewhere nice,” Joe continues, “and this is very nice.”
    Nicky wants to tell him that their nondescript apartment in Berlin is nice. That their sixteenth century farmhouse in Shropshire is nice, even without electricity and indoor plumbing.
    But Joe looks like he really wants this, like he needs it, just like Andy needs time and Nile needs experience and Booker needs consequences for his actions.
    “I guess the pool is a nice touch,” Nicky admits slowly and Joe grins and steps into his space, his hand slipping around Nicky’s waist.
    “The pool was a bonus,” Joe says, “I got the place for the hot tub.”

    In which Nicky's at seminary because he likes to argue, not because he's becoming a priest, and Joe has missed this essential fact and can't figure out why this future-priest-slash-bartender is flirting with him.

    Summary

    Sleeping with an intern under your supervision is so far outside the realm of acceptable behavior that there’s a whole book of rules about it, which Chapel calls the Grey’s Anatomy Doctrine and which basically amounts to: Do Not, Under Any Circumstances, Do It.

    Summary

    "Wait, hold up a sec. So if you were around before them -- how old are you?"

    The men all go quiet, and Nile wonders if she's just committed some kind of immortal faux pas. "It is irrelevant," Quỳnh finally says. "Old enough to know there is no point looking backwards."

    "You're the oldest," Nile murmurs in awe. Older than the Crusades. How much older? A few hundred years more? A thousand?

    "No," Nicky says quietly. "Not the oldest."

    Canon-divergent AU. Five hundred years ago, they lost Andromache to the sea. Now Quỳnh leads the team, a new immortal just woke up, and some pharmaceutical company is getting a little too interested in their business.

    Summary

    Squeezing the phone between his ear and one shoulder, he lifted the fussy baby from her bassinet up against his other. She let loose another little whine, this one certainly audible on the other end of the line.  

    “Booker,” said Nile slowly, “is that a cat in the background?”

    He froze. “A cat? Yes, of course. This little lady was hanging out by the trash bins for my flat, squawking up a storm and hungry as hell. No mama to be seen, so I’ve taken her in for a couple of days.” There. It wasn’t a total lie.

     

    ---
    Or, Booker, exiled, drunk and alone, takes in an abandoned baby. He doesn’t tell anybody. He definitely doesn’t fall a little bit in love.

    Summary

    Oh, she’s had it. “You’re fucking with me,” Nile says. “I did die, and this is Hell, riding around Afghanistan being grilled about my past sins by some shitty Virgil.”

    “You can call me Joe.”

    “What do you and the others do, Joe?”

    “Depends on the century,” he shrugs.

    “Professional kidnappers?”

    Joe shows his teeth. “It’s very cute that you think this is professional.”

    “No, but maybe the others know what they’re doing.” A flash of irritation cracks his chummy facade. She wonders if he has any shame she can jab. Fighters and soldiers, he said. “Are you mercenaries?”

    “It’s a little more complex than that.”

    “Sure,” she says. “Whatever you need to tell yourself. How many people have you killed? Just averaged, across the centuries.”

    His mouth twists. “Maybe Hell is riding around Afghanistan being judged by a US Marine. How many people have you killed, Freeman?”

    She closes her mouth, hard. Joe doesn’t smile, but his satisfaction is palpable. 

    - - -

    In which Joe is the one who goes to retrieve Nile.

    Summary

    A dam bursts inside Nicky, and he is so swept away in the tide of his relief he admits everything. “I meant it,” he says. “Of course I meant it, I’ve fallen in love with you. Let me keep you. Let me stay with you. Marry me, Joe.”

    “I thought I would spend my nights in darkness,” Joe tells him, and Nicky knows this about him, too, that he will not give a straight answer when a poem would do. “I thought I’d live on a pale shadow of what you’ve made me feel. But you – your smile could light up the darkest night, Nicolò. Your heart is so sweet, my love, you’ve captured mine so easily. I’ll stay with you for as long as you’ll have me.”

    Nicky would blame the wine, he would blame the summer breeze, the beautiful view, temporary insanity, anything, but it would be a lie and he’s an honest man. If he’s drunk on anything, it’s Joe. If anything makes him shiver, it’s Joe. If there is any beautiful view, it’s Joe’s eyes, bright with tears and smiling at him. If he’s insane, it’s only love.

    OR: The one where Joe and Nicky get married after knowing each other for two weeks.
