  1. Summary

    So this is no doubt going to become really arbitrary, but currently this series is intended to be both fix-it fics for s5, blatantly ignoring everything that happened in s5, or cutesy stuff to help us forget about s5 (that includes AUs!) I'm always accepting prompts at asoulforapieceofbread.tumblr.com. Enjoy!

    Summary

    The immortals dream of each other when the universe has decreed that they are not close enough to one another.

    Joe and Nicky start dreaming of each other a month and a half into their truce, when they are sleeping side-by-side every night in the desert. How much closer can they be?

    Summary

    Finally, nearing the bottom of the notifications, Joe spots a new commenter. He gets a handful of new followers most days, but they usually either lurk or have been commenting for ages already. This guy isn’t a new follower, and Joe hasn’t seen him comment before. A quick glance at his profile shows that he is following Joe, and has been for a while - he likes almost everything Joe posts. He’s never said anything before, though.

    This guy, @dj_nova, has commented, Excuse me, is that a quote from Inferno? below Joe’s deadlift video.

    “Yes!” Joe cries out, sitting up in bed.

    OR: The one where Instagram fitness and lifestyle thirst trap Joe Al-Kaysani has a problem in that he becomes incredibly tongue-tied around a very cute barista at his favorite café even though he really wants to discuss medieval poetry with him.

    Summary

    Yusuf’s blindfold is removed, he sees the flash of a steel blade, and—in an instant—knows exactly where this is going to go.
    They have found out what he is, and they want to know how.
    So it is a surprise when he finds himself being shoved into a chair, and a ruddy, round-faced Venetian priest grabbing him by the shoulders, and bellowing at him in ecclesiastical Latin:
    “Where is the lamp?”

    Twenty-five years ago, Yusuf told Nicolò an old folk tale about a fisherman and a djinnī trapped in an oil lamp. Then they parted ways at Alexandria, leaving Yusuf heartbroken.

    Now, as Tyre is captured by the Venetians after a long siege, Yusuf finds himself imprisoned in a tower by the sea for taking a stand. But who's been spreading rumours about an old oil lamp that belonged to Saint Nicholas?

    Summary

    Joe’s life was going pretty swell. He had an education that was mostly fun, a supportive, loving friend group, even several big career opportunities in his near future. The only thing that was missing was an insufferable Italian-American baker Joe could let drive him fucking crazy. On the other hand, Joe could simply let Nicky fuck him crazy, too.

    OR: Joe is a tired art student and Nicky di Genova Brooklyn is the most insufferable man he’s ever met. He’s hot, though.

    Summary

    According to some people, the easiest way to a man's heart is through the stomach. Others would say that far more important to that, is their pets liking you. If only Joe and Nicky could agree on that one.
