    Summary

    Nile dreams of a man drowning, over and over and over.

    And- between every other curveball thrown her way in the last 72 hours- Nile realizes she has to draw the line somewhere between passively accepting it and doing something about it.

    Summary

    Nile's been with them so little time and Joe is overwhelmed by how much he loves her. It feels much like he remembers it felt when his wife had first brought him their child so many lifetimes ago: a figment of his imagination suddenly real, alive and precious. She makes him feel ancient. He doesn’t remember twenty-six anymore than he remembers infancy. He’d been married by then, his children walking and talking. But twenty-six or not, it’s those children Joe thinks of when he looks at Nile.
    --
    In which Joe has a lot of feelings about families, and his family in particular.

    That's it, that's the fic. I think my first headcanon in this fandom was that Nicky had been a good priest, followed almost immediately by the headcanon that Joe had been a good Dad. Which got me thinking about what Nile joining the team might mean to Joe in particular.

    Summary

    “What happened?” she asks weakly. She’s lying on her back, Joe kneeling beside her, but Nicky and Andy are nowhere in sight.
    “Stepped on a landmine. It’s gonna hurt for a while, but you’ll be okay.”

    Joe’s going to get over his break-up blues by sleeping with the most attractive person he knows who he’d happily never speak to again. And it works like a charm! The cursed kind.

    Summary

    They were all intimidating at first. Not that Nile wasn't used to being sized up, but now, these were her people. For however long she had.

    Training with Nicky was simple enough, but Joe was a different story altogether. Andy seemed content to sit back and let her struggle. She preferred to make her own mistakes anyway.

    Summary

    She’d thought she’d come to terms with everything she’d lost, but in that moment it hits her all over again: she can’t go home, can’t ever see her mother or her brother again. Not even once.

    And she misses them so much it hurts.

    Summary

    “It happened to you too,” Nile says softly. “I can see how worried you are about him, but he’s not the only one who got hurt. Immortal or not, no one just walks off being tortured.”

    “It wasn’t torture,” Joe says blandly.

     

    After Merrick, Nicky needs to be alone for a little while, and Joe needs not to be.

    Fortunately, Nile could use some company too.

    Summary

    Nile closes the front door behind her softly as she steps out onto the porch, the wooden deck warm under her bare feet in the evening. She pushes herself up to sit on the porch wall, leaning back against one of the beams as she watches the file download on her phone screen. She has no idea what it could be. Copley just forwarded her a message straight from Booker that had just said that she may want privacy when she listens to it. 

    When the file finishes downloading, she taps her finger over the play button. Unable to help the slight feeling of uncertain nerves that flutter inside of her.

    Her earbuds crackle as somebody moves the microphone.

    “Nile,” Booker starts on the recording, his voice sounding rough and tired. “You told me before that all you wanted was to hear your mothers voice one last time. While you cannot see her again in person, I hope this brings some comfort.” 
    .
    .
    .
    Booker had been responsible for Nile's rough introduction to immortality, to make amends, the first action of his exile is to try and bring her some peace.

    Summary

    Joe loves his job of hunting down the most dangerous criminals in the world, he really does.

    Lately, however, things have started to grow stale. That is until a new and mysterious assassin by the name of Nicolo di Genova enters the scene and starts taking a dangerous and obsessive interest in the veteran crime-fighter, launching the two into a long and bitter game of cat and mouse.

    But the longer their gambit goes on, the more Joe starts to wonder if there is more to his violent adversary than meets the eye, sending him into a dark descent of insatiable longing.

    Summary

    What if Booker hadn't been 'the new guy' all these years, and there had been another, whose death was overshadowed by the more dramatic and torturous deaths Quynh experienced over the years, thus blinding Nile until recently? How will Nile react to finding out she is the 7th Immortal running around in the world rather than the 6th? And how will Booker deal with not one former teammate, but two appearing in the same week? Let's find out, shall we?

    Summary

    What makes pit vipers unique is the fossa, which in effect give the snakes a sixth sense to help them find and perhaps even judge the measure of the prey on which they feed.

    It’s been four months since the kidnapping, the death-memory drugs, since going through more than one earth-shattering reunion. And they want to think that they’re stronger than ever as a team, as a family. But there’s always a weakness to exploit, when someone knows where to find it. When Quynh strikes again, she does it with precision. And venom.
