    Summary

    Exhausted, nearly propping his eyes open with his fingers to stay awake, Joe takes the time to do one last thing: He sends an email overflowing with gratitude to the owner of the food blog who has saved his life these last few weeks. By the time he realises he forgot to sign his name, Joe has already started to drool onto his pillow.

     

    Andy and Quynh’s engagement party is full of fond memories for Joe; it’s where he met the man who might be the love of his life, and thanks to a helpful food blog, it’s the event that finally taught him to cook. Now if only the owner of that blog wasn’t such a jerk...

    Summary

    Missed Blind: A required bet that is not posted when it is a player's turn to do so, perhaps occurring when a player absents themself from the table. Various rules require the missed bet to be made up upon the player's return.

    They didn’t start playing strip poker immediately. In hindsight, it might have been better if they had.

    Maybe Chowder recognized that. He disappeared before the first cards were dealt, citing a need to call Farmer.

    Maybe Dex should have followed his example. Found an excuse. Gone back to his room.

    Summary

    Joe half-scoffs, half-laughs, gaze flitting towards a sparrow landing on a nearby telephone post. "I'll explain it to you later," though there won't be a later. Obviously. But it's something to say.

    "Have coffee. With me," Nicky adds, rather unnecessarily.

    Joe's brain hiccups. "What." Then, functional brain cells catching up, he clears his throat to say, "I could do with some coffee." Smooth.

    Or, Joe is ostensibly on holiday, dealing with burnout and avoiding his gallery agent. Not so much running away as trying to find himself. He finds Nicky instead.

    Summary

    Hartenstraat AU

    After a life-threatening accident derails his life, Nicky pursues his original dream of being an illustrator. But that, alongside adjusting to civilian life, almost proves too difficult until Nile suggests he design the logo for The Aubergenie, a bakery co-owned by Sébastien and Joe.

    In between a bad first impression and a second chance, Nicky unwittingly saves Joe’s daughter. Suddenly, he finds himself a part of their lives, falling in love with them both as he works on the logo and a story inspired by them—and counting down til this fantasy falls apart.

    Despite their connection being too good to be true, various struggles, worries and expectations culminate in a heart-breaking misunderstanding that threatens to divide them before they can truly be together.

    Will they be able to salvage what they had, or had they burned too bright to last?

    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.
