    Summary

    He had always been a solitary figure- aside from a brief period in his teens, he had always been on his own. He didn’t have anyone else and he didn’t need anyone else. Allowing people into one’s life just gives them opportunities to fail you, and with a criminal history as extensive as Peter Nureyev’s? Not a risk worth taking.
    And yet- something was missing. He had wealth, if he wanted it. Prestige he could fake well enough to convince the room if need be. Infamy in bounds, though very little of it was tied to his name.
    Connection, though. It wasn’t something he wanted. He shouldn’t need it. That was for fools, something used to trick people into staring into your eyes while you swipe the bracelet off their wrist. Food, water, shelter; those were necessities. Connection was a frivolity.
    And yet…

    Why would a careful criminal like Peter Nureyev reveal his name to a relative stranger within hours of meeting him?

    Summary

    Juno goes with Nureyev after the events of Final Resting Place- but he quickly realizes that spontaneously leaving everything he knows behind while in a really bad mental place might not have been the best decision after all.

    To his surprise, however...it isn't only his problems that end up catching up with them.

    Summary

    Juno bites his lip and nods softly, like he’s deciding on something. “I want to try it.”

    “Pardon?”

    “I want to be good to you,” Juno lifts his hands to cup my face, leaning in to kiss me slowly. “I want you to—to know how it feels to be loved like that,” he kisses me again.

    OR: Peter is good at taking Juno to pieces, and Juno figures it's about time he returned the favour.

    Summary

    ‘Isn’t this what you would want, too? To show him that there’s another way, a better way for things to be, by showing him how it could make you? You would still be you, but good. You would be honest, you would be safe, you wouldn’t need to want to be violent or a thief or a liar. You would be better.’
     
    Domesticated, Ramses didn’t say, but Nureyev felt the word crawl up his spine anyway.

     

    Peter Nureyev wasn't going to hear about the 'Guardian Angel of Hyperion City' without investigating and seeing if he needed to intervene.

    He's not as prepared as he thinks he is for what he'll find.
