    Summary

    Towards the bottom of the list, a short title stood out: “GOD.” Curious, Nile skimmed the description: By drawing on sources from antiquity to the present day, from philosophy to poetry, from mysticism to neuroscience, from Eastern philosophers to their Western counterparts, this seminar explores what we talk about when we talk about God. [Thursdays, 2-5pm, Prof. Y. al-Kaysani & Prof. N. di Genova. Max. enrollment: 10 students.]

    “I’m kind of intrigued by this one here that’s just called ‘God,’” she said tentatively.

    Professor Scythia’s eyebrows shot up. “Oh? Why that one?”

    -

    OR, college senior Nile takes a very unusual seminar, made even stranger by the fact that the two professors teaching it seem to utterly despise each other.

    Summary

    "Do you think we'll dream of each other, now?" Nicolò asks unexpectedly. "Like we do those two women?"

    It startles a real laugh out of Yusuf. "Who knows? Sometimes, Nicolò, I think I must have dreamed you entirely."

    After escaping the fall of Jerusalem together, Yusuf walks away from Nicolò in order to return home and move on with his life. It works for a while. Fifteen years later, Nicolò shows up in his dreams of the two immortal women.

    (In which Yusuf needs time to come to terms with destiny, and Nicolò to make peace with himself, before they can meet on equal ground.)

    Summary

    Yusuf couldn’t help but snort, drawing Nicolò’s glare.

    “It’s not funny,” Nicolò said over the burst of Yusuf’s laughter. “I don't see why it’s only happening to me and not to you.”

    “God loves me more,” Yusuf said quickly, as he had many times before.

     

    In the early days of their friendship, Nicky and Joe stumbled across a family in need of their particular brand of help.

    Technically a prequel to Driving Lessons, but stands alone.

    Summary

    "So this is what my boss meant when she said we must have so much in common," Joe says.

    "Yeah, probably," Nicky sighs. "It's...I just remember back when I was in school and there was only one other boy in my year who'd come out—"

    "—and everyone assumed that of course you must be into each other," Joe agrees ruefully. "Because you were the two gay kids."

    The one where Nicky and Joe make a pact not to sleep together and fuck up the friendship. So, you know, that works out well.
