    Summary

    Leaning against the doorframe, Nile looked out onto the domestic scene she was about to interrupt. At first glance, there was nothing unusual at the sight. Joe was in the kitchen cooking a great-smelling sausage, Nicky lounged on the couch and watched the snow fall outside the window, and Andy leaned over the kitchen table reading a book. Compared to the storm of bullets and glass she’d dealt with in London, watching them relax in their remote safe house in the Alps was almost picturesque. 

    It wasn’t the humans that troubled Nile. It was their daemons.

    A "His Dark Materials"/daemons fusion.

    Summary

    “So, are we going somewhere for pretense first or are we going straight to a place with a bed and privacy?” She chuckles, low and sultry, and your mind wonders how many other noises you can pull from that throat before the night is done. There has been a two-month lead up to this, and if you don’t get to take your time, you might weep.

    “I think our dance has gone on long enough. Your place or my hotel?”

    Summary

    "Well, it's not like gay people just appeared in the twentieth century," Joe says. "There have been plenty of other times and places where Nicky and I were unremarkable. Well, at least our love. Wise men of history have always seen my Nicolo's beauty as divine. Why our friend Micky from Florence used him as a model for one of his more impressive statues. It's still around today"

    Nicky can see the host connecting the dots. "I'm sorry, do you mean Michelangelo's David?"

    "The resemblance is remarkable, isn't it? Undersold a few pieces though..." Joe says.

    "You knew frickin' Michaelangelo?" the host asks.

    "Biblically, right boys?" Andy smirks.

    *****

    Merrick managed to leak proof of The Old Guard's existence before he died. The world freaked out. To help quell the fears of billions, Nicky, Joe, Andy, and Nile agree to a series of interviews on BBC.
