    Summary

    “Don’t look at it as a curse,” Joe had told her, a month earlier. “Think of it as an opportunity. What did you want to do that you were always too scared to try?”

    Summary

    She gets it, okay? She gets it. She’s new and she’s young but guess what, she’s also a marine and she has saved their sorry immortal asses from being turned into lab rats on day one and she’s given up everything she has ever known.
    You’d think that would warrant a bit of respect.
    You can’t force someone to respect you, her sarge used to say, but you can refuse to be disrespected.
    Well, then, she thinks as she rebraids her hair in perfectly aligned French plaits, now that she can do.

    Summary

    Nile Freeman is never going to get used to dying. 
    The emptiness that it comes with, a sheer sense of nothing, of something missing. Like the numbness you feel in your ears when you’ve been surrounded by silence for too long. The vacuum that appears the second you put your head underwater.
    And it terrifies the shit out of her 
     

    Alternatively:
    Four times Nile says she's okay and the one time she really, really isn't.

    Summary

    Nile has learned that food is love and that is why you cook for your family, for your friends, for the people you love. She has learned that from her mom and her grandma.

    Now she is learning it again with her new family.

    Summary

    It’s just after 7:00pm, somewhere in North America, and Nile needs something to distract her before she gets in the car, points it towards Chicago, and drives until she sees the lights of her mother’s house. Alex Trebek is there - just like he's always been.

    (The gang watches Jeopardy!: wagers are made, popcorn is thrown, and peace is found).

    Summary

    Nile Freeman is working her way up in King Merrick's army. She's dedicated, highly skilled, and determined. All she needs to do is get rid of this stubborn headache, ignore the whispers in her mind, and impress Commander Keane.

    She doesn't, of course, expect to die. And she most definitely does not expect to wake back up.

    Summary

    Leaning against the doorframe, Nile looked out onto the domestic scene she was about to interrupt. At first glance, there was nothing unusual at the sight. Joe was in the kitchen cooking a great-smelling sausage, Nicky lounged on the couch and watched the snow fall outside the window, and Andy leaned over the kitchen table reading a book. Compared to the storm of bullets and glass she’d dealt with in London, watching them relax in their remote safe house in the Alps was almost picturesque. 

    It wasn’t the humans that troubled Nile. It was their daemons.

    A "His Dark Materials"/daemons fusion.

    Summary

    If only the call for auditions had added this one very important caveat: "alongside regular programming, musician also must be ready to be integrated into a new, slightly odd family, with whom musician will be participating in something that may or may not be minor government upheaval and other general shenanigans."

    Would Nile have passed up the opportunity then? Hard to say. But there's no denying that this has been the most exciting ensemble she's been a part of in a long, long time.

    (In which she is a fresh face in a small city's struggling orchestra, and a funding battle might just be the thing she needs to find her place.)

    Summary

    That night, the message on the person's clothing has changed again.

    MY NAME IS NILE (but you can call me Nyı)

    I AM LIKE YOU. I CAN NOT DIE

    I CAN TRY TO HELP YOU

    1. WHERE ARE YOU

    2. ARE YOU SAFE

    3. WHAT DO I CALL YOU

    You felt as if you could sense some irritation behind those eyelids. The person’s skin was darkened just a little on either side of their nose. They looked as exhausted as you felt, surviving.

    Your perception of time is bleeding into itself. You wonder if you really should have died back there.

    Ten thousand years in the future, a new immortal warrior is born. A ship carrying slaves between colonies is sunk on the warp lanes by its rogue captain, and you—an agent of the Federal Union—seem to be incapable of dying.

    But who is the person you keep seeing in your dreams?

    Summary

    “So, are we going somewhere for pretense first or are we going straight to a place with a bed and privacy?” She chuckles, low and sultry, and your mind wonders how many other noises you can pull from that throat before the night is done. There has been a two-month lead up to this, and if you don’t get to take your time, you might weep.

    “I think our dance has gone on long enough. Your place or my hotel?”

    Summary

    The feeling that hasn’t changed, hasn’t shrunk itself down to a convenient portable size, is flight. It fills up her whole soul.

    She tilts herself to shear between buildings, one wingtip skimming inches above the fleeing crowd, and she counts down the seconds before she breaks cover. On her two tours she was always in mountain ranges. Busting bunkers, she knows now, was a waste of the Falcon — of something capable of threading this needle’s eye between too-close condos. There’s so much more she could do.

    If she didn’t have to think about this FUBAR situation, all the smoking cars, betrayal and death around every corner, she’d be having such a good time right now.

    Summary

    You belong, with conditions. You belong, until your presence is inconvenient to everyone else. You belong and then… you don’t.

    Summary

    He chuckled. “Did your family ever win?”
    “Oh hell yeah. My mom and I made these fancy chocolate Christmas tree cookies one year and absolutely destroyed the competition. One year we did gingerbread men, I think another time my dad and I made snowflake cookies. December was just a month of solid baking which I guess is why I’ve always enjoyed doing it.”
    “That sounds nice.”
    She nodded, the ache in her chest making a reappearance. “It was,” she said quietly, her fingers going to her cross necklace out of habit.

    in which Nile misses the way Christmas used to be, Booker makes an emergency candy run, and the team pulls off a surprise gingerbread house competition for the history books.
