    Summary

    The team is woken by a dream of a new immortal. He’s easy enough to track down - Nicolò di Genova, Italian, age 30 - but… he’s not exactly what they were expecting.

    “Copley,” Andy began, her voice surprisingly cool and collected. “Tell us what we’re looking at here.”

    “This is precisely why I wanted to do my due diligence,” Copley explained. “From what you’ve all told me about your pasts, I was expecting a soldier or something along those lines. But you’re looking at Father di Genova.”

    “He’s… a priest,” Joe said slowly, wide-eyed and disbelieving.

    Summary

    “Is he even gay?”

    Joe gapes at him. “He agreed to go out with me so I fucking think so, Booker. Jesus Christ.”

    “Ah, yes, and how does He feel about this?” Andy deadpans.
     

    Or: Joe and Nicky start dating, and even more misunderstandings ensue. Sequel to All of the Pageantry, None of the Guilt.

    Summary

    His plans are derailed when he sees Nicky heading into the fitness suite, already wrapping his knuckles as he walks. The stretch of his shoulders is obscene in his compression shirt. Joe tries to ignore the sense memory of all that skin and strength under his hands. 

    The gentle way Nicky handled him still rankles at Joe, still sticks out in his mind like a thorn, and there’s no better way to show him that he doesn’t need it than to give him a proper demonstration.

    Joe tries to understand his relationship with Nicky.

    A mission gets in the way.

    Summary

    "We are meant to find each other" Nicky had said. Destiny.
    The Old Guard have barely had time to lick their wounds before Destiny drops their bombshell. Exiled traitors don't stay gone. Lost friends don't stay buried at the bottom of the sea. And mad doctors don't let go of their test subjects.
    Nicky was right. But there is always a price.
