    Summary

    “I realize that was a stupid question,” Nicky says, with just enough grace that Joe forgives him. “I just don’t want you to be disappointed.”

    “That’s up to you,” Joe says. “I know what I want.”

    “Oh?” Nicky asks.

    “I want to present for—someone,” Joe says bluntly, nearly saying you instead when he catches another whiff of Nicky’s scent. “I want to be held down, and taken, and I want someone to do it who isn’t going to take it as a blanket statement about my politics.”

    Summary

    The famous Italian short story 'La Realtà di Tutto' is the tragic tale of two men who fall in love in the rolling hills of Calabria and are then separated by forces beyond their control. Nicolo di Genova- one of the few openly gay actors in cinema - has spent years trying to adapt it into a film, and he has assembled the best in the business to help him shepherd the film to success. There's only one thing missing just weeks from day one of shooting: the other leading man.

    When Joseph Al-Kaysani - a moderately successful comedian - is cast in what Variety calls, 'the most hotly anticipated film on Netflix's docket,' and what industry insiders call, 'that gay mafia movie,' it's a complete surprise. Joseph is best known for his unflinchingly honest storytelling style, but there's one thing he's never shared with his audience or his family - he is gay.

    But Joe isn't the only one with secrets.

    Summary

    The Norse countries are lands of mountains and rivers, riches and danger, home to battle-hardened Vikings, intimidating volvas, stone-fisted jarls, and many more.

    The Norse lands also draw Yusuf, a merchant from Tunis seeking to trade for their wealth. He travels north every year, with the goal of bringing home the greatest profit he can find.

    Then his life is saved by a handsome stranger named Nicolò, who soon proves himself a kind and good friend.

    And Yusuf has another goal each time he travels to the Norse lands: not falling in love with him.

    Summary

    A professional Quidditch AU with an auspicious beginning for a certain Beater and Seeker, a muggle-born Chaser finding her feet with(out) the dubious mentorship of a very tired Keeper, and an Italy versus France rivalry that apparently transcends even magic and every single sport.

    Summary

    They collapse on the bed after, panting and facing each other, legs tangling. Nicky reaches up to gently push a sweaty curl off Joe’s forehead, thumb sliding down to sweep across his cheekbone.

    The tenderness of it brings a lump to Joe’s throat. He knows he shouldn’t push this but he can’t help it: he slides an arm around Nicky’s waist and pulls him a little closer to kiss him, much softer but somehow more desperate than the ones they’ve just shared.

    Nicky pulls back first, but doesn’t go far, resting their foreheads together. They share breath, and Joe thinks about saying it then, just to alleviate some of the ache in his chest. ‘I love you’ he wants to say. Or even just, ‘Stay for a little longer this time.’

    Or: The friends with benefits AU but they're immortal idiots so it's lasted centuries.
