    Summary

    It isn’t the fact that the man was clearly naked underneath a dirty, threadbare blanket that catches Yusuf’s attention first. It isn’t the ring of purple bruises around his neck, either, or even the blood trickling down the man’s legs.

    No, what strikes Yusuf first about the man are his eyes – big, clear, green as the sea right before dusk, and filled with fear.

    “Help,” the man whispers softly, his voice hoarse. “Please…”

    ***

    Nicky is being abused by the duke of the town where Yusuf is staying for winter. Yusuf is not going to let that continue, if he has anything to say about it.

    Summary

    Nicolò Di Genova is home for the summer after he graduated college - except, things are tense and strange. His Dad, a big shot lawyer who works for Merrick Enterprises, has hired extra security, and seems a bit miffed he came home for the summer instead of touring Europe like he had wanted him, too. But Nicky was just trying to spend his summer in the pool while he works some things out . . .

    Joe is hired as extra security to watch over a guy who knows nothing about life (or so he thinks). This is his last job, and then he’s done - he’s out, and can just focus on what he needs to do next. But what was supposed to be an easy job of watching a rich kid sunbathing while his Dad coordinates his grand jury testimony with the DEA, turns into something much more dangerous. It’s not just Nicky’s Dad who is in danger - it’s Nicky, too.

    Because someone has decided he wants him all to himself . . . and it’s not just Joe.

    Summary

    Quynh's fiddling with her ring and turned on her seat, conversing with one of Nicolò’s aunts when she hears the chairs on her table move behind her. Particularly, she feels the chair beside her move, and so she turns.

    And finds a tall woman pulling out the seat, in a sleek white suit, her dark hair stark against it. Quynh stares up at her and her breath hitches.

    Fuck, this woman is gorgeous.

    “Fuck, you’re gorgeous,” the woman says to her, and Quynh blinks, wondering if she had said her words aloud, her face heating up, a smile creeping across her lips.

    ***

    or the one where there's a table mixup at Yusuf and Nicolò's wedding and Quynh's left to sit with total strangers

    except there wasn't a mixup and Yusuf's just a sneaky, incurable romantic

    Summary

    Joe is a single father of two wonderful twins. Unfortunately, he has the worst luck when it comes to keeping babysitters long term. Nicky is looking for another job to help pay the rent when he stumbles across an oddly phrased “help wanted” advertisement and decides to call the number. What ensues is far more than what either man could have dreamed.

    A tale of two lost souls who find each other and, with the help of their meddling friends and two mischievous six year olds, find their happily ever after as well.

    Summary

    “Tell me then,” Nicky said, all casual and nonchalant, “What do you have in mind?”

    Joe’s lips slowly curled into a smirk. “I think I would like to commit another crime.”

    “How will you remember?” Yusuf asked, voice cracking in grief.

    “That I love you?”

    Summary

    Previously titled Forgiveness.

    As Joe walked up the steps, away from the beach and Booker, he turned to look at him once more.

    The complete anguish that he saw Sebastien try and hide broke his heart.

    What were they doing? How had they come to this decision? How could he be so blinded by anger that he could think that he would be able to leave his Sebastien alone for two centuries? And think that even after a century, he would still be unable to forgive the man that he claimed to love.

    Or

    Joe has second thoughts before abandoning Booker. But Nicky is still furious.

    A story about misunderstandings insecurity, lack of communication and a lot more.

    Summary

    “Why?” Yusuf asked. “Why here? Why now?”

    Nicolò sat back on his haunches, dropping his hands to rest on his knees. It was comforting, in a way, to be kneeling on the cold, hard floor of a Cathedral. But this time he was not worshipping God, not worshipping saints or stone effigies. This time he was worshipping his lover, the only being who deserved his devotion.

    “I have no need to worship God,” he said simply. “Not now, not anymore. I’d much rather worship you.”

    Summary

    The Abbasid Caliph, Yusuf al-Kaysani, was a vehement patron of the arts. Nicolò di Genova, would often watch the noble’s nimble hands as they danced across the parchment paper, his lithe fingers always stained with charcoal. The Roman guard would accompany the kind ruler everywhere he went, his shoulders always tense and muscles ready to spring into action.

    --or--
    Based on the following tumblr post by @the-modern-typewriter
    "Would it kill you to relax?" the monarch teased their guard. "Probably," the guard replied. "Likely it would kill you too. That's rather the point."
    A smile flashed across the monarch's face. I'll risk it," they said, and held out a hand. "Dance with me."
