    Summary

    The Old Guard’s first album was a huge hit, and for their second, they decided to bring in a new bandmate, Nile Freeman. The first thing she learns is that most of the rumors about the band are not true: Andy isn’t an ice queen, Booker is a lot more easy-going than he looks, and Joe and Nicky are NOT together, despite the fan theories.

    Title based on this poem by Pravana Reddy

    This fic updates on Tuesdays and Fridays.

    Summary

    Their bodies are riddled with bullets, stretched out prone on a floor that is glossy and slick with blood. Nicky can hear shells dropping onto the floor, overlaid by the sound of their attackers murmuring to one another. No doubt congratulating one another on a job well done. Nicky wasn’t particularly interested in what they were saying, he was too busy considering the fact that he could hear what they were saying. He should really be dead right now. Like, properly dead. Halfway to healing and regenerating, but still unable to hear and see type dead.

    or - nicky dies in south sudan, and wakes up a ghost.

    Summary

    Joe watched through tear-filled eyes as Nicky knelt gracefully in front of him, taking his hands and tracing over his palms.

    “Do you remember Vienna, in 1979?” Nicky asked, voice calm.

    “Of course I remember,” he finally responded.

    “They tortured you,” Nicky said, guilt and grief passing over his face. “For days. And they didn’t touch me.”

    “I was glad,” Joe insisted truthfully. “I still am.”

    Nicky huffed a small laugh. “I know,” he soothed, going back to tracing his fingers over Joe’s palms. He let out a sigh.

    “And I am glad it was me, this time.”

    Joe and Nicky were separated before being transported to London. On the way, Keane took a special interest in Nicky. This is the fallout, and the recovery, for everyone.

    Summary

    Nile’s eyes are darting between them both, obviously thrown off by the open aggression, and Joe sighs. This is not the first impression he would have liked to make. Across from him, Nicky’s mouth is pressed into a thin line. “I’m sorry, Nile,” Joe says. “Nicky and I had a complicated beginning, and now we find it too easy to slip into arguments.”

    Nicky closes his eyes and breathes in deeply through his nose. “Yes,” he says. “Things often become more heated between us than we mean them to.”

     

    Or: Joe decided to forge his own path in 1102, and it takes the events at Merrick Pharmaceuticals to shake up the status quo.

    Summary

    Across the table, Nile’s grin is cheshire cat-wide, eyes gin-bright in the golden light. “Hey Nicky,” she says, triumph on her words like hot fudge on a sundae, “I dare you to marry Joe.”

    That's the best idea she's ever had. It may be the best idea any of them have ever had. It may beat the elephant sanctuary. Quynh gasps into her hands, Booker is frozen with his glass halfway to his mouth, and Nicky—

    “Nicky, my heart,” Joe says, clasps Nicky’s warm hands in his, “will you marry me?”

    --
    Nile (and also fandom) like to guess how many times Nicky and Joe have been married. What if the answer is zero?

    Summary

    Nile, for all her griping and internal monologuing about the state of the world and its inhabitants, takes her role as the leader of their cadre seriously. So, she thinks that it’s only right when faced with a potentially explosive environment, with the threat of a hostile interrogation, that she prepares her teammate with ample time.

    ---

    Or the fic about a note I made around these two having to face up to Joe, Nicky and Quynh after three centuries of brooding around each other.

    Summary

    With Andy being mortal, Booker being gone and Quynh being back, things have not exactly been normal in a while.

    Summary

    Nicky wonders if he’ll ever stop wanting to please Joe, if he’ll ever stop getting lightheaded when Joe gives him that look, the one that’s heavy with want and a little amazed. If he’ll ever stop feeling like Joe’s arms are the only home he needs, forget the three-story house with the two-car garage.

    Of all the possible worlds, Nicky thinks there could be one where they bought that downtown loft, one where they stayed in New York, one where he never even took a teaching job. But he can’t imagine a world where he didn’t end up with Joe.


    Joe takes Nicky’s hand and kisses each knuckle, pausing to admire the ring. He never gets sick of looking at it, this sign to the entire world that Nicky belongs to someone, that Nicky belongs to him. His lover, his partner, his baby.

    His husband.

    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

    Just when Joe and Nicky's worlds are beginning to mesh, when they're finally enjoying something like normalcy (as normal as life can be for the city's most beloved hero and its most notorious thief), Nicky's past comes back for him with a vengeance. With the aid of Andy, Quynh, and Nile, Booker and Joe must team up to save him, but will love be enough?

    Or: The hero and the thief. More comic tropes, more sword fighting, and a whole lot more falling in love.

    This is a sequel to fight 'til the day that i die, so you might want to read that first.

    Summary

    The Norse countries are lands of mountains and rivers, riches and danger, home to battle-hardened Vikings, intimidating volvas, stone-fisted jarls, villagers and farmers, and many more.

    The Norse lands also draw Yusuf, a merchant from Tunis seeking to trade for their wealth. He travels north every year, but that does not save him when he is lost in a snowstorm.

    Yusuf is rescued by a handsome stranger named Nicolò, who soon proves himself a kind and good friend.

    So good, in fact, that when it comes time for him to move on, Yusuf does not want to go - but what he wants has nothing to do with it.

    Summary

    “Nicolo, I understand that in the past our families did not always see eye to eye, but we are different. Think of all the times we have worked together. You are an extraordinary business man and a powerful leader. I have never held any personal contempt for you or your family. Since, Roberta moved in with us, she has brought my family nothing but joy. I have only briefly engaged with the twins, but from what I understand, my brothers have never known truer happiness until Fabio and Cesare entered their lives. As much as it is strange to admit, the Di Genovas and Al-Kaysani’s are becoming one family, which I believe would be beneficial to our future.

    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

    Shivering, Nicky draws in tighter on himself. The room they’re being held in is small, but it’s drafty. The vents keep letting in more bursts of air, and they took Nicky on his evening run. He’s wearing shorts and a T-shirt, and the sweat has long-since become cold and clammy against his skin. He has no real concept of how long they’ve been in here, but he knows it’s been at least three hours. That makes it past midnight. There are goosebumps on his knees.

    To his left, Joe shifts. 

    Nicky starts. 

    “It’s okay,” Joe says, voice hushed. It’s an improvement over the first hour, when he wouldn’t stop calling for help even though there was clearly no one listening. “We’ll be warmer closer together.”

    Romance novel blurb: Kidnapped together, sons of rival business moguls Joe al-Kaysani and Nicky di Genova find common ground...and maybe more.
