    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

    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

    “Horses?” Nicky says.

    “You know, horses,” Nile says, clearing up nothing. “Like, when you pass some of them in a field or something, you point and say ‘horses.’ Some people do it with cows, but I think that takes the fun out of it.”

    “Ah,” Nicky says, slowly. “An American ritual, then?”

    “I think it’s more of a ‘less than 900 years old’ thing, honestly.”

    Nicky hums. “So much is.”

     

    Or: A post-movie epilogue about being human together ft grocery stores, phone calls, car rides, shitty food, football games, and the wild hubris that you can renovate your own house without professional help.

    Summary

    For all the weirdness of the new life Nile found herself in, it was--of all things--a grilled cheese sandwich that finally pushed her over the metaphorical edge.
