    Summary

    Nursey and Dex know they're in love with each other. It's just that sometimes keeping it unspoken is the best for everyone when there are too many miles between them. But Nursey is three months away from finishing grad school and moving to Boston, so maybe they don't have to wait that much longer.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    His life is good in New York.

    But with the end of grad school approaching and his lease almost up, he’s getting more and more impatient about finally living with his friends again. The finish line is so close that it's getting more frustrating. He just wants to get there already.

    Because the finish line looks like waking up and being greeted first thing in the morning by Chowder beaming at him and telling him he's gonna have a great day. And writing all afternoon in the quiet of their warm home and stopping just in time to pour a glass of wine for Farmer minutes before she arrives from an exhausting but fulfilling day of teaching kids. And sitting on the kitchen counter, handing Dex ingredients while insisting that it counted as helping him cook dinner.

    And Dex would roll his eyes and hold back a smile while Nursey laughs and bites his tongue before the words spilled out: I’m in love with you. And I'm pretty sure you love me back.

    Summary

    “Come back to bed?” Nicky asks, and there’s no version of Joe, or Nicky, or the entire damn world where the answer to that question would be no.

    or, Nicky and Joe are back in Malta, Nicky is beautiful, and Joe is very, very, very in love.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Nicky snorts out a laugh and shakes his head, and the warmth that bursts through Joe’s chest at the sound is so, so much more intense than anything the sun could ever give him.

    Joe takes a moment to watch Nicky's face - the dark circles under his eyes are gone, and his hair has gotten longer, fanning out over his cheek. Joe switches his gaze to Nicky’s chest next, and down to the subtle curve of his stomach. He’s grown softer in the weeks they’ve been here, crafted by days upon days of lazy mornings and local bakeries and a clear and welcome lack of strenuous physical activity beyond that which has taken place in their own bed. It’s not a major change, but it’s enough for Joe to notice the difference in this body that is as familiar to him as his own.

    And Joe has held and loved and worshipped every possible version of Nicky over the past nine hundred years, each one as beautiful as the last, but there’s something so comforting to him about this version. About watching Nicky's hard lines soften, about brushing his palm over Nicky's stomach as they settle into bed each night and feeling physical evidence of the fact that they’re resting, and for the first time in a long time, letting the world move forward without them.

    It strikes Joe, suddenly, how physically whole Nicky looks, and he feels almost dizzy with the relief of it.

    Summary

    In hindsight, Nile is almost surprised by how little Andy, Nicky, and Joe hide from her.

    Or, Nile learns, one person at a time, all the little ways that Andy, Nicky, and Joe comfort and care for each other when things fall apart. And as it turns out, the things she learns make becoming part of this family easier than she ever would have imagined.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    There’s music floating through the open windows from somewhere down the street, probably the man on the corner playing the guitar that Joe and Nile had passed earlier. Nile allows herself to get lost in it for a moment - lost in the music and the thought that every person she and Joe had passed on the street, every person behind every lit apartment window, is living their own unique life, separate from one another but intertwined by the mutual connection of being in this city, in this neighborhood, and even on this street. It’s comforting, Nile finds as she watches Nicky give Andy a final once-over, and she has a feeling that it's a thought she’ll bring with her to the next city they visit.

    Summary

    Nicky shifts slightly in his sleep, turning from his side onto his back as Joe trails his hand down Nicky’s arm. “Nicolò,” Joe repeats, trying to swallow down the guilt that washes over him and mixes with the raw fear and uneasiness that have been humming under his skin since they left the lab. “Come back to me.”

    or, Joe seeks reassurance that Nicky is still alive and breathing beside him after everything they've been through, and Nicky is more than willing to give it.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    There is so much about this long, long life that Joe doesn’t understand, and so much that he thinks even those given hundreds of years to live were never meant to learn, but Nicky, and the fact that when they go, it will have to be together, are two of the only things he’s always been sure of.

    Summary

    The world knows a lot about Derek Malik Nurse. They know that he graduated at the top of his class from Harvard, that he has an affinity for poetry, and that he’s one of the leads of Northanger, the #1 cable drama in the nation, which has garnered him instant fame and heartthrob status.

    What the world doesn’t know about Derek is that he’s a huge pain in William Poindexter’s ass.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    “Look, I’m not, like, a romantic like you,” Will continues, because it doesn’t look like Derek’s going to say anything anytime soon. “But I just think that when two people are clearly meant to be together, then they should be.”

    Derek’s mouth parts in a surprised smile. “I don’t know. That sounds pretty romantic to me.”

    Will flushes. “Shut up.”

    “Hey,” Derek says, suddenly serious. “It’s okay. I mean, I feel the same way.”

    “Well, great. So, are you going to do something about it?”

    Derek grins even wider, now looking almost a little awestruck.
