    Summary

    Joe doesn't say anything, because he can't think of anything that wouldn't make his heart pound faster than it already is. Nicky side eyes him for a moment, because of course he can tell, but he's been working on politeness recently, so he doesn't ask why. He just gently turns his own hand over and laces his fingers through Joe's. He squeezes gently, and yeah, Joe knows better than anyone that Nicky doesn't have the ability to feel things. He's been inside his head as literally as is possible, has repaired him, has seen his circuitry and its beautiful, unprecedented intricacy. He knows exactly what it's capable of, what Nicky is, and what he isn't.

    Still, the entire point of what they do is to discover the unknown. Maybe Joe doesn't know the why of it, hasn't figured out the how, but the way Nicky cares about things, about doing and being good, about the work they do, about his friends, about Joe- if it isn't empathy, pure and sweet, Joe doesn't know what else it could possibly be. 

    Or: Nicky is an android, Joe is an engineer, they are in love, and this is the Star Trek AU that nobody asked for.

    Summary

    There's a man standing in front of his table, a sheepish cant to his shoulders. His lovely, blonde-brown hair looks in need of a haircut since it's growing out somewhat unevenly, presently just long enough to hang partially in his eyes. His eyes are the most intriguing shade between clear blue and crisp green. He has a beauty mark near his mouth, a definitely Roman-looking nose, and enough scruff on his chin that Joe's not sure if he's trying to grow out his beard or just hasn't bothered to shave.

    He's fucking gorgeous, is what Joe is trying to say.

     

     

    (The past year hasn't been kind to Joe or Nicky. But a chance meeting at a local market sets them both on a path they weren't expecting. A path filled with love, magic and maybe, just maybe, some peace.)

    Summary

    “Okay, I’m going to need your contact information and I’ll have to ask a few questions about what it is you’ll be needing during your rut. Is that alright?”

    “Yes, yes, of course,” Nicky says, aware that he’s panicking and it reads in his tone. “Before you accept my booking, you need to—“

    “It will be just fine,” Joe says, smooth and professional. “Why don’t we start with your name?”

    “That’s just it,” Nicky says miserably. “It’s Nicolò di Genova.”

    There’s a long pause. “Oh,” Joe says.

    He hasn’t hung up, which is what Nicky was expecting, so he uses the silence to start apologizing.

    In which both Joe and Nicky struggle to fit into a world where your cycle determines so much about your romantic prospects when neither of them have typical cycles or even know if they want that kind of romantic relationship. In which Joe co-runs a center where people with atypical heat and rut cycles can come and receive the help they need. In which Nicky really wishes he hadn't written a series of very stupid letters to the editor of the local paper back when he was pretending he didn't need the kind of help Joe was offering.
