    Summary

    “Tell me,” Nicolò says finally. “Why should I go with you, Yusuf Al-Kaysani?”

    Because I have loved you for a millennium, as you have loved me, Joe thinks. Our souls know each other as the ocean knows the moon. We are in constant motion together, the push and the pull, the rise and the fall. One cannot exist without the other.

    Instead, Joe manages a smile he cannot feel. “I have the keys to the car.”

    -

    Something went wrong in Merrick’s lab before Nile arrived with guns blazing. It wasn’t Andy’s bleeding mortality or Booker’s stinging betrayal.

    It was Nicky, and by extension, it was Joe, too.

    (The AU where the final death is not permanent. It’s a reset: it’s another chance. Nine years after Nicky’s final death, the fractured remains of the Old Guard encounter him on a job, and he’s not alone.)

    Summary

    Shipwrecked after being ambushed by pirates, merchant Yusuf al-Kaysani must conceal his identity to find refuge at the court of Lady Andromache, who is known for only being attended by women after the sudden disappearance of her wife. As a tallish woman named Ophelia, Yusuf wins her graces.

    Once Andromache learns of "Ophelia's" sliver tongue, she entreats Yusuf to a special kind of task - to fend off her apathetic suitor, Lord Nicolò, who seems to be set on the idea that they should marry. Or at least, his parents do. Nicolò, for his part, seems oddly taken with "Ophelia" - and Yusuf is torn between protecting his identity, and acting on his growing feelings.

    Oh yeah, it's a Twelfth Night retelling, basically.
