    Summary

    "And you will know what it is to lose… everyone you’ve ever loved."

    Sébastien le Livre was born in 1770. He died in 1812, aged 42, after being hung as a deserter from Napoléon Bonaparte's Grande Armée, shortly after the Battle of Berezina. He came back to life with a noose still around his neck and hung there for three days.

    This is the story of the 42 years leading to his first death and of how Sébastien le Livre became Booker, forger, soldier, mercenary - and traitor.

    Summary

    Previously titled Forgiveness.

    As Joe walked up the steps, away from the beach and Booker, he turned to look at him once more.

    The complete anguish that he saw Sebastien try and hide broke his heart.

    What were they doing? How had they come to this decision? How could he be so blinded by anger that he could think that he would be able to leave his Sebastien alone for two centuries? And think that even after a century, he would still be unable to forgive the man that he claimed to love.

    Or

    Joe has second thoughts before abandoning Booker. But Nicky is still furious.

    A story about misunderstandings insecurity, lack of communication and a lot more.

    Summary

    At the safe house in Goussainville, he could barely disguise his interest. There was Andy and Quỳnh, after all, and Joe and Nicky. Was she supposed to be his, just 200 years late?

    Then, it all went to hell. Nile hurled herself from a window. Booker offered her his hand. She accepted. Everything changed. Nobody realized.

    ---

    Booker and Nile are generally smart and usually rational immortal beings. They make decisions all the time. So why do Nile's visits always seem to bring warmth and sunshine to Paris? And why does this thing between them feel like destiny?

    Or, a Hades and Persephone fusion in which Booker and Nile find family, find each other, and find their fate.

    Summary

    Then, light as a drop of water, silent as a light breeze, a knock.

    A flare of hope.

    Someone.

    Anyone.

    Reality?

    Hallucination?

    “Please.” He croaked. His voice no more than a hum.

    Another knock.

    A pause.

    A third.

    A fourth, fifth, six.

    Then silence.

    Nothing.

    ‘Bang!’

    If he had the energy, he would have turned to look.

    Instead, he heard a familiar voice.

    Summary

    Quỳnh should feel sorry, for making them help Booker while she keeps a tight grasp on her Andromache. 

    She should feel sorry, and in a way, she is. 

    But she won't apologize, not when she knows she was doing something right.

    [OR : Quỳnh is out of her iron-maiden, and she vows to show Booker why he should never have hurt Andromache. It's a sort of therapy, although Nile strongly disagrees with it.]

    Summary

    Hundred years. A century. It was no blink of an eye even to them, who had survived a millennium. But it was just, in their eyes. 

    To a woman who had merely lived two and a half decades, a century was unimaginable. 

    Too harsh she said, for a man who endured two and a half centuries would view his exile as a tunnel with no immediate end, with no light.

    Three wanted him back. All for the right, but different reasons. 

    Two switched in a constant and endless cycle of wanting to express their fury at and worrying about him.

    Summary

    Post-Merrick, The Old Guard goes to college, is domestic, deals with some loose ends, and everyone gets a happy ending.

    “I know you’re all as old as dirt, but I’m only 25,” Nile says. “I want to go out.”

    “Pardon,” Joe says. “Andy is the only one who is as old as dirt.”

    “Thank you, Joe,” Andy says.

    “I, on the other hand,” Joe continues, “am as old as… a Bristlecone Pine. Or perhaps a well-preserved and striking Obelisk from the Axum empire, stolen by Mussolini's fascist soldiers in the 1930s, and finally repatriated to Ethiopia in 2002.”

    “That’s weirdly specific,” Nile says.

    “You should major in archeology this time, my love,” Nicky says.

    “Mm.” Joe presses an absent kiss to Nicky’s temple. “There’s a thought. And I’m sure you aren’t suggesting it just because you want me to dress like that Indiana Jones.”

    “Of course not. Though I would not object,” Nicky says serenely.

    Summary

    Sobriety will not stop the dreams.

    It takes him a while to remember that he’s no longer the only one dreaming of Quynh, and that’s what breaks him.

    He sobs and curses and breaks a window before he decides that is enough. He thought of his family, the nightmares they were doubtless suffering from now. Because of him.

     
    OR

     

    Booker gets his shit together and realises he needs to find Quynh in order to get himself a good nights sleep, so he does.
    Canon divergence from after the group exiles Booker.

    Summary

    Booker saves Quynh from a quasi-military operation torture chamber, and they travel across the continent running into trouble, both in the form of the guns that are chasing them, and their own deep-seated and suppressed traumas. They do eventually run into Andy and Joe and Nicky and Nile, but how are you supposed to rectify reality with hope, when those two things seem so unattainable? A fic of found family, purpose, fate and love.

    Big bang fic with art by bloodsuitsandtears.

    Summary

    “You’re not real. I’m dreaming, hallucinating. You’re not here. You can't be, I have seventy-five years, eight months, three weeks and four days left. I can't have you. Your touch. Your hugs. Your presence.”

    “You can my darling, you can. I promise you can.”

    Emotionally exhausted, and terrified for their relationship, they laid down in a similar manner to which they had at night. This time the older men knew not to let him wake alone.

    Summary

    Booker travels to New Orleans after encountering Quynh, hoping to live out the rest of his exile in peace. Unfortunately, someone has other plans for him.

    Waking up in a cell, Booker sees a girl walk through the cell wall and wonders if perhaps the alcohol is causing hallucinations or if he's being haunted by actual ghosts now instead of just his metaphorical ones.

    Inspired by a kink meme prompt here.

    Summary

    He was late. So he sped. Sped along the dirt road in hopes of not making Andromache wait. She’d be upset as it was when she found out the Copley was a repeat, there was no reason to annoy her by making her wait for him.

    So he rode his bike. Fast. Till he saw Andy walking up ahead. The tires squealed as he stepped hard on the brake to stop right beside Andy. Underestimating the breaking power of his bike, he ended up a few meters in front of her. He smiled sheepishly to himself and he made a sharp turn. He looked at her, his face expressionless. After a few moments, he allowed his sheepish smile to grow into a grin. Some small comfort to the fact that this was the last mission they’d ever have together.

    Or

    TOG in Booker's point of view.

    Summary

    Water. Seemingly infinite water. Deep, dark, freezing and eternal. The claustrophobia. The metal, sharp, bloodying fists. An eternal cycle of coming and going, fading in and out with no end. Again and again. Every time, a piece of self coming loose and shattering, coming undone and remade into a vessel of rage and destruction…

    Thousands of miles away, Sebastien wakes from the recurring horror, cold sweat over his body that freezes in the frigid air of a December night in England, gasping for breath...

    Summary

    "I came because I wanted to hear it from you."

    Booker's hand itches for the whiskey bottle he knows is on the floor beside him, "Why I did it?"

    "Yeah. No," she closes her eyes and takes a deep breath through her nose, "The whole thing. Start at the beginning."

    "The beginning?" Booker almost chokes, laughing bitterly, "You know I'm over 200 years old, right?"

    She shrugs, "Hey, I've got time."

    --

    Two weeks after his exile, Nile visits Booker.
