    Summary

    For some reason, Felix’s gaze is catching on the white breaths puffing out of Sylvain’s mouth. An old governess used to tell him tales of the North, how anyone who went into the mountains was destined to freeze to death on the icy slopes, and how the Sreng were only able to survive thanks to a pact they’d made with some foreign God. Glenn had helpfully pointed out that that story was probably made up. “And not freezing to death,” he appends to Sylvain’s list, reaching out and giving the leather straps on the bundled coat one last tug, because he can.

    “And not freezing,” Sylvain agrees with a slow smile, after he finally swings up onto his horse. “But don’t worry about me, I’m a Gautier.”

    Sylvain comes back from Sreng with treaty in hand and a fever that won't go away.

    Summary

    Nicky breathes out. “What did I miss?” he asks, staring out at the hills. “Why didn’t I see this coming?”

     

    After everything, after finding Nile and losing Booker and Andy's new mortality, Joe is pissed off. Nicky is just tired.

    Summary

    Post-Merrick, The Old Guard goes to college, is domestic, deals with some loose ends, and everyone gets a happy ending.

    “I know you’re all as old as dirt, but I’m only 25,” Nile says. “I want to go out.”

    “Pardon,” Joe says. “Andy is the only one who is as old as dirt.”

    “Thank you, Joe,” Andy says.

    “I, on the other hand,” Joe continues, “am as old as… a Bristlecone Pine. Or perhaps a well-preserved and striking Obelisk from the Axum empire, stolen by Mussolini's fascist soldiers in the 1930s, and finally repatriated to Ethiopia in 2002.”

    “That’s weirdly specific,” Nile says.

    “You should major in archeology this time, my love,” Nicky says.

    “Mm.” Joe presses an absent kiss to Nicky’s temple. “There’s a thought. And I’m sure you aren’t suggesting it just because you want me to dress like that Indiana Jones.”

    “Of course not. Though I would not object,” Nicky says serenely.

    Summary

    “You cannot keep them, Sebastien.”
    “Keep them?!” Sebastien hissed, glancing at the boys, “You talk like they would be pets, Quynh.”
    “And you talk like they would be sons,” Quynh countered harshly, and Sebastien tried to remember that she was only being cruel to be kind, even as his heart instantly recoiled at her suggestion that he was trying to replace his dead sons with Joe and Nicolò.
