    Summary

    “Oh, my little sunshine.” She taps his nose affectionately and Yusuf tries not to smile too big, lest he look too pleased. “That’s very kind of you. With those big bright eyes of yours, I think I’d believe anything you say, though.”

    Yusuf pouts. “It’s true!”

     

    Or: 4 times Yusuf used his big, sparkly, anime eyes to his advantage and 1 time someone turned it on him.

    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

    Michelangelo is a cunt.

    For one thing, he insists on calling him Giuseppe, even though Yusuf decided against a change of name while in Roma.

    For another, he is spectacularly nonplussed by the concept of personal space, regardless of how many times Yusuf has cleared his throat and stared daggers at the man from across the room.

    Or, that time Joe didn't get to stab Michelangelo for being a big perv, among more pleasant activities in Italy.

    Summary

    It’s unfortunate that Nicky was at the same nightclub as him tonight, that Joe spotted him across the room throwing back shots, that Joe was unable to look away from the long line of his throat. It’s even more unfortunate that Nicky caught his eye and smiled so fucking widely before coming over to greet him; there was no polite way to escape the interaction, and all Joe could do was match Nicky shot for shot.

    Nicky’s hand was clumsy on his arm, Nicky’s breath was mostly vodka ghosting over his face, when he leaned close and asked Joe if maybe he’d like to get out of there.

    Joe was drunk as fuck and unable to say anything besides, “Sorry, I don’t fuck Christian missionaries.”

    (In which Nicky thinks the mission trips he went on as a teen are a net positive for the world and Joe has a problem with that. (Un)Fortunately, it's not enough to stop him from hooking up with Nicky.)
