    Summary

    “Well, shit,” the voice says, very loud and very close, and then Nicky’s head snaps to the side, much too fast. He’s been hit, he thinks, thoughts muddled. That’s why his head just- his mouth feels damp, suddenly, saliva or blood, maybe both. “How much did you give him?”

    In which an unpleasant time is had by all.

    Summary

    Joe and Nicky have made a life with each other in their little house in Amsterdam Centrum. There’s a koi pond in the back courtyard, fresh herbs growing in the windowsill, and art on all the walls. Things are uncomplicated.

    Then, one day, Nile Freeman shows up at their door.

    Summary

    It’s this vulnerability, the look of concentration on Nicky’s face as he rips alcohol wipes open with his teeth and uses them to clean up Joe’s swollen hands. Gentle, in a way he rarely flaunts. The humanity of it all. That’s what started all this. Seeing someone in pain, and for better or for worse, trying to do something, anything, to help.

    Or: The hero and the thief. Some comic tropes, some sword fighting, and a whole lot of falling in love.

    Summary

    “So,” Nile begins, sitting in the beat up Hyundai with some meatballs in her lap, still dressed in her running gear. “Sexiled, huh?”

    Andy nods, chewing away at her own meatballs. She points at herself. “Professional third-wheel here.”

    Nile nods. “Well, they’re in love.” She shrugs, and Andy raises an eyebrow at her. “What? Love makes you do stupid stuff.”

    Nile experiences the whole world, learns some disgusting secrets, gains another set of parents—as well as a cranky vodka aunt—and learns what it means to be immortal.

    Summary

    Nicky gasps back into reality, choking on the blood still filling in his throat and rolling over to cough into the ground, saliva sticky and sharp against his tongue. His fingers are already twitching towards his gun, hoping it’s within reach but never really sure, not when it’s taken so long.

    Joe will be upset. He always is when it’s like this-- wounds slow to heal and body unmoving for a few too many raw, dragging beats.

    Or, Nicky gets hurt, Joe worries, they have sex
