    Summary

    “I don’t want to fuck anybody,” Yusuf said, starting bluntly to save them both the trouble of specifics. “Or almost all the time, I do not.” (or: the one with slutty Nicolò and confused demisexual Yusuf)

    Summary

    Dr. Yusuf al-Kaysani, Joe to his friends, is an art historian and archaeologist who is passionate about the repatriation of art and artifacts. When the system gets in the way Joe is more than happy to liberate artifacts from their glass cases, even if some of his jobs don’t go as smoothly as others. But when he stumbles across a statue with mysterious origins in Malta, can Joe handle the paths his search for truth and restorative archaeology will take him down?

    Summary

    "I always thought that would be nice. The fantasies of children, hmm?”

    He says it as though the idea of him ever going to Malta is as far-fetched and ridiculous as other kids’ plans to grow up and become dinosaurs or superheroes, and the thought makes Joe feel unaccountably sad.

    “Maybe when you get the ransom money,” Joe says. His brow wrinkles, like he’s not sure if Joe means the comment as a sincere ‘maybe one day’ or a sarcastic call-back to what he said yesterday about how no one but the bosses was going to see any of that money, and Joe’s honestly not sure himself, caught uncomfortably between the instinct to like this man and the more logical inclination to remain wary if not outright hostile towards all of his captors.
    _
    A not-quite-modern AU in which Nicky isn't a crusader but is mixed up with a different set of people who do very bad things for not very good reasons, and Joe isn't defending Jerusalem but does end up in a different sort of trouble far from home, and a lot is different but some things never change.

    Summary

    When Nicky was twenty-two, he was in love. With the world, yes, and with his own life, with the way having an Interrail Pass and some money in his pocket made him feel that anything was possible. But most of all, with Joe. With him, love was effortless. They laughed easily, they traveled together well, and they fucked like gods. 

    Nile never knew that version of him, the Nicky so in love that he stole Joe's t-shirt and stuffed it in his backpack, thinking he could wear it to bed and imagine Joe was still holding him. By the time he met her, Nicky had not only stopped sleeping in that shirt, he'd long-since shoved it in the back of his bottom drawer behind a spare blanket. After that, he could almost pretend it never existed.
