    Summary

    “Hm.” Nicky’s clearly dissatisfied with that answer. “So no mentions of immortality at all? What about other gods? Pre-Abrahamic religions?”

    “Habibi,” Joe says, resting a hand on his shoulder. “Don’t overwhelm them.”

    Sam starts answering, talking about Gabriel double-timing as Loki, all the other gods they’ve met, the theological implications of one god creating many others, angels impersonating other gods, and Dean almost cares, but he can’t hear any of it. It’s white noise, blood rushing in his ears, all he can see is the slow caress of Joe’s thumb on Nicky’s shoulder, Nicky’s hand coming up to clasp at Joe’s.

    OR: Sam and Dean meet the Old Guard. It awakens a few things in Dean.

    Summary

    Nicky feels like he’s the only true human being in the room; he’s the only one shifting with discomfort and wrinkling his nose and feeling so sick at watching what’s going on. “Hey,” he says to the scientists, “Can’t you knock him out while you do that?”

    “Why should we? We don’t have the budget for sedatives or pain killers.” One of the scientists says blandly, and that makes Nicky feel like he’s been shoved over an abyss. There should be empathy, or professional courtesy, or common decency, but there’s just a blank look of slight annoyance.

    Instead of killing the doctor like he really wants to, Nicky pulls his silenced handgun from a pocket and shoots the victim in the head. “They’re immortal and I don’t get off on watching people writhe in pain. Even if drugs aren’t in the budget you can bet bullets are."

    Summary

    To satisfy Nile’s curiosity and make her part of the family, Joe tells her the full story of how Nicolò di Genova and Yusuf Al-Kaysani became "NickyandJoe". From Jerusalem to Malta and back again. And Nile doesn’t want the PG version.

    It’s a story that has been told in this fandom a thousand times before, but deserves to be told a thousand times more.

    Summary

    A dam bursts inside Nicky, and he is so swept away in the tide of his relief he admits everything. “I meant it,” he says. “Of course I meant it, I’ve fallen in love with you. Let me keep you. Let me stay with you. Marry me, Joe.”

    “I thought I would spend my nights in darkness,” Joe tells him, and Nicky knows this about him, too, that he will not give a straight answer when a poem would do. “I thought I’d live on a pale shadow of what you’ve made me feel. But you – your smile could light up the darkest night, Nicolò. Your heart is so sweet, my love, you’ve captured mine so easily. I’ll stay with you for as long as you’ll have me.”

    Nicky would blame the wine, he would blame the summer breeze, the beautiful view, temporary insanity, anything, but it would be a lie and he’s an honest man. If he’s drunk on anything, it’s Joe. If anything makes him shiver, it’s Joe. If there is any beautiful view, it’s Joe’s eyes, bright with tears and smiling at him. If he’s insane, it’s only love.

    OR: The one where Joe and Nicky get married after knowing each other for two weeks.

    Summary

    "Do you think we'll dream of each other, now?" Nicolò asks unexpectedly. "Like we do those two women?"

    It startles a real laugh out of Yusuf. "Who knows? Sometimes, Nicolò, I think I must have dreamed you entirely."

    After escaping the fall of Jerusalem together, Yusuf walks away from Nicolò in order to return home and move on with his life. It works for a while. Fifteen years later, Nicolò shows up in his dreams of the two immortal women.

    (In which Yusuf needs time to come to terms with destiny, and Nicolò to make peace with himself, before they can meet on equal ground.)
