    Summary

    Nicolò should set up the rifle right now, make the shot, and be out of the country by lunchtime. He shouldn’t care that Joe’s eyes are a warm, deep brown, or that when he smiles the entire room lights up around him. Nico has killed beautiful people before, many of them, without blinking.

    Instead he makes a monumentally stupid decision.

    "My bad pickup line worked on you,” Joe says later at dinner. “I saw your sneer and I thought, oh, I must get that man to agree to a date with me.”

    Nico snorts. “And despite my better judgement, here we are.”

    “Oh,” Joe says, and over to touch Nico’s fingers. “I think your judgement was quite good, don’t you?”

     

    Or: Nico has a job, and that job is Joe. He just can't for the life of him figure out why anyone would want an unassuming museum curator and art restorer dead.

    Summary

    “J-Joe?” Nicky tries, heart pounding in his ears.

    Joe’s shaking his head, scrambling backwards and away, looking over Nicky with a wide, disbelieving gaze.

    “No, it can’t be. I watched you die. We burned your body, Nicky- what the fuck is going on?” Joe asks, his voice a quiver that cuts to the quick .

    Nicky wishes he had an answer."

    One universe's Joe lost his Nicky; in the other, Nicky lost his Joe. Now they've been thrown together, and everything is not okay.

    Summary

    Summer, 1999. Harry comes home with news. Quite a lot of news.

    Harry takes a deep breath.
    “I'm quitting the Aurors,” he starts with, which is followed by a moment of stunned silence.
    “What?” Sirius says.
    “All right," Remus says. “Do you know what else you want to do? Did you think about it?”
    Harry blushes, the way James used to—a rosy glow lighting up his brown skin—and says, “I wanted to—that is, I thought I might be a teacher.”
    Remus, quite suddenly, seems to have something in his eye. "Oh."
    “What?” Sirius says.
    “And uh—there's more. I was thinking I might like to. That is. I want to become an Animagus.”

    Summary

    In the middle of the aftermath left by life-shattering trauma, Sirius finds Remus, someone who understands better than anyone else ever could. And together, they take turns putting each other back together again when the nightmares of their pasts try to tear them apart.

    (Note: the Non-Con and Violence tags are only there as trigger warnings and indicate PAST and ATTEMPTED events. This does NOT occur between any of the main characters and is ABSOLUTELY not glamorized.)

    Defense of female characters in Harry Potter- so good!
