    Summary

    Nicky thinks that as a vampire, he's earned the right to brood in solitude for a decade or two. Andy disagrees so vehemently that he finds himself forcibly dragged from his safe haven and placed under the charge of one Yusuf Al-Kaysani, a terribly cheerful witch running a horribly busy apothecary in central London. Dreadfully, he expects Nicky not only to earn his keep, but to contribute in the capacity of customer service. What a calamity.

    What's unclear is whether Andy's intention was to lift Nicky's spirits, to torture him, or to try her hand at matchmaking.

    Summary

    Right there in the middle of the page he keeps special for such things, is their tally. 

    In a mess of notes and adjustments, it simply reads: Nicky -995 / Joe -340 

    Nicky’s eyes get very wide, and he glances at the rubbish on the floor in front of the bin, the money on the table, and finally back to Joe’s sketchbook. His slow blink is as good as a curse, and Joe’s grin spreads sharp and slow across his face.

    Nicky loves silly bets. Joe reaps the rewards.

    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

    Joe and Nicky are two lonely people who frequent the same bookstore. After they get to talking, they figure out that maybe they don’t have to be so lonely anymore.

    Or: a little love story about difficult seasons, and how they pass.
