    Summary

    Towards the bottom of the list, a short title stood out: “GOD.” Curious, Nile skimmed the description: By drawing on sources from antiquity to the present day, from philosophy to poetry, from mysticism to neuroscience, from Eastern philosophers to their Western counterparts, this seminar explores what we talk about when we talk about God. [Thursdays, 2-5pm, Prof. Y. al-Kaysani & Prof. N. di Genova. Max. enrollment: 10 students.]

    “I’m kind of intrigued by this one here that’s just called ‘God,’” she said tentatively.

    Professor Scythia’s eyebrows shot up. “Oh? Why that one?”

    -

    OR, college senior Nile takes a very unusual seminar, made even stranger by the fact that the two professors teaching it seem to utterly despise each other.

    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

    It has only yet gone eight p.m. when Nicolò di Genova, second son of Gauvain of France, opens the door of the Family house to allow Dr. Yusuf al-Kaysani entrance. The doctor has to shake the snow off his hat before turning to face what will, with hope, become a primary source for his new research into the medical practices one can apply to the undead—colloquially known as vampires. 

    It has only yet gone eight p.m. when Nicolò di Genova first lays eyes upon the most beautiful man he has ever seen.

    Summary

    “Why?” Yusuf asked. “Why here? Why now?”

    Nicolò sat back on his haunches, dropping his hands to rest on his knees. It was comforting, in a way, to be kneeling on the cold, hard floor of a Cathedral. But this time he was not worshipping God, not worshipping saints or stone effigies. This time he was worshipping his lover, the only being who deserved his devotion.

    “I have no need to worship God,” he said simply. “Not now, not anymore. I’d much rather worship you.”
