    Summary

    Nicky finds out he’s pregnant two hours before they leave for South Sudan.

    For centuries alphas and omegas were persecuted until they became a relic of the past. In the present, Joe and Nicky are taken by Merrick and soon their captors will find out that immortality is not the only thing unique about them.

    Or; the events of the movie, but omegaverse (with a twist).

    Summary

    Yusuf al-Kaysani expects nothing when he arrives at Kellerman's Summer Resort. He certainly doesn't expect to meet a beautiful dance instructor and volunteer to help said beautiful dance instructor in a time of need. Falling in love with him is obviously completely unforeseen. (A/K/A the Dirty Dancing AU that no one asked for.)

    Summary

    AU of With this wind blowing, and this tide

    In 1993, Booker still unexpectedly found six-year-old Yusuf and three-year-old Nicky being kept prisoner in a basement and killed the man responsible. He, Andy and Quýnh grew attached to the two boys and, not trusting the system, decided to raise them themselves.
    In 2019, a new immortal still rises, Andy still goes to retrieve to Corporal Nile Freeman and the family still has an appointment outside Paris.

    This time, though, Copley came up with a different plan.

    Where's Joe?

    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

    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

    I saw a clip of Muppet Babies and wondered what the Old Guard would be like if they were all kids.

    This is the result......

    FYI Nile is American and has moved to the UK which is why she calls her mother Mommy. They kids are in Year 1 but later in the term so they are a bit more mature (have I over thought this?)

    Summary

    “Nicolo would never risk the fates of children over his own.”

    “And look where that got him!” Andy roars, her throat burning with a desperate rage that has nothing to do with the pills, and right there, in that precise moment, she watches, devastated, as the words carve ruin into Joe’s grief-stricken face.

    She hears the tiny intake of Booker’s breath, sees the even tinier lift of his shoulders towards his ears.

    Summary

    “Let’s start with an easy one: How long have you been together?”

    Joe flicks his eyes up at the ceiling as if he needs to think about this for a moment. Which he does, because he’s known Nicky all of four days.

    “Three years.”

    “It’s been nearly four," Nicky scoffs.

    “I was rounding down.”

    “Oh, now you’re rounding down? I’m sure you were rounding up when—”

    “Okay, let’s stop there,” Copley interrupts him, eyes a little wider as he scribbles down on his notepad.

    After a fight at work, their boss signs Joe and Nicky up to mandatory reconciliation therapy. Only somehow, somewhere some wires get crossed and Copley, their therapist, thinks they're there for couples therapy. And who would Joe and Nicky be to correct him if they can bet on when he'll notice instead?

    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

    " 'Alright, then. I believe we can cut straight to the chase, if you don't mind. As I was saying in my email, I've read your paper on the psychotherapy of delusion and I was both intrigued and fascinated by your approach. I believe some of the methods you have described may be applicable in the case of a group of patients we have here and-'

    'A group?' Merrick cuts him off, beady eyes widened in evident curiosity."

    Summary


    Yusuf doesn’t think he will ever forget the raging fire in Nicolò’s ice blue eyes when he was dragged into the throne room by two guards. Blood all over his pale face, hands and feet shackled, and put on his knees before King Merrick.

    The Genova Kingdom had been outnumbered and outmaneuvered, but as Kingdom Venefica waged war against them, they stood their ground, determined to protect their land and their people until their last breath.

    They all fell.

    And Nicolò was alone.

    Merrick had decided that he didn’t like Nicolò’s fire. The fire that had lured Yusuf had burned Merrick, and he wanted it gone.
