    Summary

    "So this is what my boss meant when she said we must have so much in common," Joe says.

    "Yeah, probably," Nicky sighs. "It's...I just remember back when I was in school and there was only one other boy in my year who'd come out—"

    "—and everyone assumed that of course you must be into each other," Joe agrees ruefully. "Because you were the two gay kids."

    The one where Nicky and Joe make a pact not to sleep together and fuck up the friendship. So, you know, that works out well.

    Summary

    After the end of his five year marriage, Joe finds himself depressed and unable to write or paint. It takes Andy bursting into his room and shoving a ticket for “Gay and Away”, a singles tour through Tuscany.

    Joe doesn't mean to buy the 300 year old villa, but he's here and heartbroken, and maybe the house will help.

    The guy helping him with the renovation, Nicolo, sure doesn't hurt.

    Summary

    Finally, nearing the bottom of the notifications, Joe spots a new commenter. He gets a handful of new followers most days, but they usually either lurk or have been commenting for ages already. This guy isn’t a new follower, and Joe hasn’t seen him comment before. A quick glance at his profile shows that he is following Joe, and has been for a while - he likes almost everything Joe posts. He’s never said anything before, though.

    This guy, @dj_nova, has commented, Excuse me, is that a quote from Inferno? below Joe’s deadlift video.

    “Yes!” Joe cries out, sitting up in bed.

    OR: The one where Instagram fitness and lifestyle thirst trap Joe Al-Kaysani has a problem in that he becomes incredibly tongue-tied around a very cute barista at his favorite café even though he really wants to discuss medieval poetry with him.

    Summary

    It started maybe two weeks ago, on a mission.

    Well, if Nicky’s being completely honest, it started in 1165 in Prague, when Nicky spent one glorious afternoon quoting the Song of Solomon while he fucked Joe until he was a frayed jumble of nerves."

    Summary

    Nicky sighs as Joe starts to spitefully jerk himself off.

    “Must you?” Nicky asks.

    “I must,” Joe answers, “for it seems my husband no longer has any passion for me.”

    ___

    Nicky feigns indifference about their sex life, because nothing winds Joe up better.
