    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

    Five years since Joe had gotten down on one knee, the beaten silver ring he’d had made special held out, the perfect size for his finger. Five years since he had looked Joe in the eye, his own wide and terrified, and said no. Five fucking years since he’d fled the party and disappeared with nothing more than a note left on their counter saying he was sorry.

    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

    Today is a nice and pleasant day. The sun is shining bright in the sky, the weather is getting warmer and warmer, the birds are singing and fields of wheat are goldening. Their stomachs are full with warm meat, they have clean and fine clothes on and they’ve been sleeping more than correctly at night. Today is a great day for Andromache, which is exactly why Quynh and Lykon have elected to be as insufferable as humanly possible.

    “Okay so. Which is worse. Dying by poison, or dying by infection?” Lykon asks, and they’ve been at this since they left the woods. The sun has reached its zenith and then started its descend and they are still asking each other the most pointless and random questions. And it’s not like they’re having this conversation together, they’ve decided to flank Andromache on either side and every time she tries to speed up or slow down, they go along right with her.

    “I’d say poisoned, because that means you were dumb enough to eat poison in the first place,” Quynh announces after a minute of reflection.

    ~

    Andy, Quynh and Lykon all hang out together. And by hang out I mean Quynh and Lykon do their best to ruin Andy's perfect day.

    Summary

    “We are bound by our immortality. Our situation forced us together. If things were any different, would you still…”

    Joe blinks big brown eyes at him. “Still?”

    “Choose me?” Nicky finishes lamely. He feels silly for asking, in a way he hasn’t felt around Joe in a long time. Beyond that though, he really does want to know what Joe thinks about this, realizing distantly that this may be a bit of an insecurity he’s been harbouring unconsciously for a while.

     

    Or: The dimension-hopping AU wherein the universes conspire to show Nicky that in every life, in every world, he and Joe would always find and choose and love each other.

    Summary

    There are thirty different universes where any possible combination of Joe, Nicky, Booker, and Nile are either together, or could be together. There is also a Lykon, a Andy, and a Quynh in all of those different universes who think that it’s great that those four are in each other’s lives that way. No, really, it’s wonderful. Nile, Booker, Nicky and Joe are obviously all consenting adults, and they’re clearly having a fantastic time together, but would it really kill the four of them to chip in more on the monthly take out pizza bill and stop hiding bottles of lube everywhere?

    Summary

    Podfic of we could be an ancient tale by mellyflori (7 hours 11 minutes)

    Author's summary:

    "You're the bard?"

    "Court poet, technically, but I do the storytelling as well. Sometimes a little bit of singing, but not often."

    "You're on a quest in the mysterious forest, Joe."

    "I'm aware of the irony, yes. Thank you." Joe rolls his eyes, and a spike of fondness stabs right through Nicky's heart.

    A reluctant hero, a dying queen, a desperate wife, a helpful guide, a magical spring, and one smartass shapeshifting weasel. These are the things fairy tales are made of.

    Summary

    The famous Italian short story 'La Realtà di Tutto' is the tragic tale of two men who fall in love in the rolling hills of Calabria and are then separated by forces beyond their control. Nicolo di Genova- one of the few openly gay actors in cinema - has spent years trying to adapt it into a film, and he has assembled the best in the business to help him shepherd the film to success. There's only one thing missing just weeks from day one of shooting: the other leading man.

    When Joseph Al-Kaysani - a moderately successful comedian - is cast in what Variety calls, 'the most hotly anticipated film on Netflix's docket,' and what industry insiders call, 'that gay mafia movie,' it's a complete surprise. Joseph is best known for his unflinchingly honest storytelling style, but there's one thing he's never shared with his audience or his family - he is gay.

    But Joe isn't the only one with secrets.

    Summary

    Andy is twenty-three years old and has heard of the Recurrence all of twice in her entire life. If she had heard of it more than that, she would still say it's bullshit. God isn't real, and there's no reason not to extend that same non-belief to every other religion. She's polite like that.

    She hears about it in passing. The last one came in the 1920s. The next is going to be soon.

    Bullshit, she thinks, pouring another shot.

    Or: Every ninety years, twelve gods return as young people. They are loved. They are hated. In two years, they are all dead. The year is 2019. It's happening now. It's happening again.

    Summary

    This is a story about growth and pain and healing and independence, but above all else, this is a story about love.

    The world was big and lonely and to say it was a place Nicky survived was too generous. He scraped by, he dragged himself through by his fingernails, inch by inch because even when he wanted to let go, even in his most desperate moments, life clung to him like a tick. Insidious, parasitic, unpredictable and cruel. But that was before Yusuf, before the sun personified stepped into Nicky’s lonesome life and reminded him that there was good. Born thousands of years before the other half of his soul, Nicolo spent the years unconsciously traveling towards Yusuf. But before he found happiness, he had to suffer hardship. That was the way of the world and the gods had plans for him.

    Summary

    Nicolò diGenova was a man training to be a priest, his life laid out before him, before he killed a man and ended up in Old Guard Prison, sentenced to 80 years, where the prisoners and guards are waiting to tear him apart. This is his punishment and he is not afraid to face it. This is where he expects to live out the rest of his life in penance. What he isn't expecting is Yusuf "Joe" Al-Kaysani, a fellow prisoner in for grand larceny, and the crashing of their two orbits. As Nicky fights to survive and Joe struggles not to feel anything for the former priest-turned convicted killer, they may find solace and purpose in each other. This is how they fall in love, fight to survive, and try to make a life in the worst of conditions.

    Summary

    Fill for this prompt over on the kink meme: https://theoldguardkinkmeme.dreamwidth.org/7393.html?thread=2749921#cmt2749921

    ...camboy Nicky, trying to pay his rent as he does some kind of very worthy work that doesn't pay enough to keep him in food etc. Joe can be the wealthy businessman who ends up paying to watch this shy, stammering, beautiful man do various things.
    I've tagged it for mildly dubious consent and prostitution, because Nicky is a bit naive in this (at least at the start), so he maybe isn't always one hundred percent sure what he's agreeing to, and he is receiving money for sleeping with various people. But he isn't an idiot, and he is enthusiastically on board with everything once he gets it.

    Summary

    Joe's daughter Saar loves her ballet classes, and looks forward to them every week. Joe looks forward to them because it means he gets to see Nicky, Saar's kind and ridiculously attractive instructor. All of this comes second to the impending chaos of the ballet school's production of Swan Lake: there's costumes to fit, scenery to paint, kids to supervise...
