    Summary

    Nicolo Genova, or Nicky to his American friends, is just trying to get through his PhD program. He's writing his dissertation on Post-classical homoerotic poetry, but he cannot find anyone who speaks an extinct dialect of Arabic so he can translate a famed love poem by a little known poet, al-Kaysani.

    Strangely enough, his friend knows a professor on campus who can translate the poem. What starts as a simple request for assistance on his dissertation blossoms into something that Nicky -- shy, reserved Nicky who abandoned his plans for the priesthood months before ordination -- had never imagined for himself: true love.

    What he doesn't know is that Dr. Joseph Jones (his handsome, erudite, kind, lovely Joe) is harboring a secret too large for anyone to believe -- and that secret might just cost them everything.

    Summary

    Slowly, Nicky says: “Who has Joe?” 

    Nonsensically, Booker looks to Nile. Her brows furrow as Nicky and Andy follow his gaze. Nile holds her hands up as if to deny it, but then alarm takes refusal’s place. “Oh my God.” Her hands clasp around her mouth. So. She had seen something. 

    “Nile?” Andy asks. It isn’t gentle. It’s commanding. Firm. She wants an answer. Booker wishes there’s a better answer to give her. 

    “It’s...is it?” Nile asks Booker, and he finds himself the center of attention once more. 

    “Quynh,” he says. “Quynh took Joe. Put him in a...a metal coffin. I don’t know where she went.” Nicky’s fingers go tight around Booker’s shoulder and knee. All the color has drained from his face. All his concern and worry replaced with frightening blankness. 

    Then, Nicky stands. He walks out the door. And he doesn't look back.

    Summary

    Stiles' world tilts, the bed dipping as a weight settles over him, caging him in. Growling. His eyes flutter open in distant confusion as hot air sweeps over his throat and he stares up at twin beams of gold shining inches from his face.

    Werewolf.

    Stiles does the only thing he can.

    “DAD!”

    The werewolf jumps at the sudden shout, blanketing him tighter, and it’s only seconds until his dad is in his bedroom doorway with Melissa close behind, flicking on the light. Stiles' mouth drops open as he stares up at the thick eyebrows, sharp nose and perfectly groomed stubble of a golden-eyed and fanged Derek Hale.

    -

    When son of the Alpha, Derek Hale, ends up in his bed in heat, Stiles decides to use it to his advantage and secure the Bite for his sick stepbrother. As he and his family are welcomed into the Hale pack, Stiles grows closer to Derek than he'd ever dreamed he'd get, but with the fanged Soulbite of a born wolf on Derek's neck, he knows he's just setting himself up for heartbreak. Derek has a Soulmate out there, and it definitely isn't Stiles.

    Summary

    “If you wish, you may accompany me to my village,” he says, the other man’s hands stilling their motion.

    “Do you care for my company?” the man asks hesitantly. “After every time I have killed you?”

    Yusuf shakes his head and a low chuckle escapes him. “No, but it seems that you are in a much sadder state than I am. My mother would think me cruel for abandoning you.”

    After a tentative truce, Yusuf and Nicolò go home.

    Summary

    Jaskier was part fae. A quarter to be precise.

    There was an old superstition among humans that names held power, but for fae it was so much more than that. Names meant control. If you knew a fae’s name, their true name, they would be completely at your will. If someone knew your true name you were nothing more than their servant. A slave. All it took was a single command.

    When war breaks out between neighboring kingdoms, Jaskier's father uses his true name and commands him to marry a witcher as part of a peace treaty. Neither Jaskier or Geralt are particularly happy with the arrangement. But as Jaskier gets to know him better he realizes that the witcher might just be able to give him the thing he's always craved. Freedom.
