    Summary

    Joe was the first to get bitten.

    The attack came while he was asleep. Nicky hadn’t gone to bed yet, was still brushing his teeth in the bathroom, when Joe’s startled shout sent him flying into the bedroom, toothbrush in one hand, Beretta in the other.

    But there was no ambush, no assassin, just Joe standing on the bed and doing a sort of dance as he wrenched his t-shirt over his head. “Something—something bit me!” he exclaimed, emerging from the shirt with hair and eyes wild. “Quick, Nico, look before it heals!”

    Nicky did, kneeling on the mattress and holding Joe’s hips steady. To the right of his navel, there were two pairs of ugly red puncture wounds: incisors. Then they healed, leaving nothing but smooth, unmarred skin behind.

    “Insect,” he said, straight-faced.

     

    OR, the inconveniences of life in revolutionary Cairo push Nicky and Joe to a breaking point.

    Summary

    Nicky loves his family, he really does. But the blessed indulgences he gets to share with Joe when there’s no one else around to interrupt or bear witness, he misses those things as much as he misses his family when he’s been without them for too long. Nicky has spent several long hours deciding exactly how he would like to be taken apart when they’re finally alone. How he would like to take Joe apart.


    Or, 5 times Nicky and Joe wanted to do butt stuff but couldn’t +1 time they finally did

    Summary

    Shipwrecked after being ambushed by pirates, merchant Yusuf al-Kaysani must conceal his identity to find refuge at the court of Lady Andromache, who is known for only being attended by women after the sudden disappearance of her wife. As a tallish woman named Ophelia, Yusuf wins her graces.

    Once Andromache learns of "Ophelia's" sliver tongue, she entreats Yusuf to a special kind of task - to fend off her apathetic suitor, Lord Nicolò, who seems to be set on the idea that they should marry. Or at least, his parents do. Nicolò, for his part, seems oddly taken with "Ophelia" - and Yusuf is torn between protecting his identity, and acting on his growing feelings.

    Oh yeah, it's a Twelfth Night retelling, basically.

    Summary

    The night air in Lima is thick with humidity. Not even the cool sea breeze can drive away the permanent sheen of water that seems stuck to Nile’s skin. She and her hair are not excited for the morning when the heat starts to mount up.

    As much as she’s looking forward to traversing the city and its markets, she thinks she’ll be happy to leave its humidity for the mountain air as they move on to Cuzco in a couple days to meet their contact.

    In the meantime, she has apparently a lot to learn, or more accurately, a lot to taste.

    Summary

    In the hours after the escape from Merrick, Nile adjusts to the reality of her new life.

    Andy twists in her seat to glare backward, but surprisingly she’s not looking at Nile; she’s looking at Nicky.

    “This is your fault,” she tells him.

    Nicky blinks placidly, dried blood still spattered on his face. “I have done nothing.”

    “You know what you did,” Andy says. “You’re contagious.” She points at Nile. “If you start saying everything happens for a reason, I'm not letting you speak to Nicky anymore. I’m not gonna have two of you giving me lectures about some higher calling.”
