    Summary

    “Oh, partner,” Cobb says with rueful sympathy. “Look at the state of you.”

    Written for Dincobb Week 2021 on Tumblr.

    This is the Day Two SFW prompt, "Hurt/Comfort."

    I've written stories and scenes of varying lengths and tones. For clarity I should say that most of these exist as miniature AUs of their own and have no continuity with each other or with anything else I've written about these characters, so in different pieces they may be described having different physical features, personal possessions, preferences, et cetera. (There are three exceptions which I'll note as such when they come out.) Thanks to @djarining, who helped me a lot with brainstorming and discussing my ideas!

    Summary

    When Aziraphale calls Crowley to tell him that he is hurt, the demon rushes to the bookshop to find a perfectly healthy angel - with the exception of a tiny papercut. But Crowley knows - it’s not about the papercut at all. The papercut is just an excuse.

    Summary

    When the Germans were finally out of Belgium, in the cold and miserable final days of the terrible year of 1918, they moved to Antwerp and met up with Sébastien. Andrea was off somewhere, “recovering”, as Sébastien put it. Nicolas worked in the army hospitals, treating patients with shell shock and burns from mustard gas, ruined lungs and limbs blown off from exploding shells.

    Joseph just wanted a rest.

    Of course, it was not afforded to them.

     

    Or, Joseph and Nicolas in the aftermath of the Great War.

    Summary

    Nicky left six months ago, and no one knows why—not even Joe. What they do know is that Nicky leaves a blood crime scene everywhere he goes. They’re always one step behind him, but this time they have a chance to catch up and Joe is convinced that if he can just get in the same room as Nicky, they can figure out what the hell is going on and make things right.

    Summary

    On the day it happens, Joe wakes the same as he’s done well over three hundred thirty thousand times before. Nose pressed to the soft, sleep-warm skin of Nicky’s nape, arm slung adoringly over his waist. It gives him the option of pressing the flat of his palm to a steady heartbeat or to intertwine their fingers and, oh, the sweet anguish of decision.

    Joe smiles, nuzzles Nicky’s neck, snuffling through his grown-out locks. Ducks his head to Nicky’s shoulder blade. He presses his lips chastely to his flesh, not so much a kiss as a smile pressed into his smooth skin.

    There is a bruise on Nicky’s shoulder.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    On the day it happens, it happens softly, as they always prayed it would.
