    Summary

    (A Restorative Art Justice AU Fic)

    Restoring art to their rightful owners, and taking down the elite along the way. Social justice at its finest, where the characters of color get actual support from their white colleagues - and not in the white-savior-complex sort of way, but in the “Why are you only addressing me? Ask my same sex spouse who’s the actual expert in the field.” Oh yeah, we have two LGBTQA+ couples because *reasons*.

    Featuring the prestigious Bythewood University, the corrupt Merrick Museum of Art, and the black market Copley Foundation Auction House.

    Summary

    Multiple Chapter.

    As per the 'Through History' featurette, Nicolò di Genova and Yusuf Al-Kaysani meet in the 1099 siege of Jerusalem, on opposite sides of the Crusade. They cross swords in battle, and kill each other many times. Forced by circumstance to put their hatred aside, they find more in common that not. What becomes an unlikely friendship, grows into something a lot more by the time Andy and Quynh find them. (Paraphrased from the featurette).

    How Joe and Nicky meet and fall in love.

    “Nicolò.” His name, Yusuf guessed. He hesitated. He had so much fear. So much confusion. He looked down, and asked Allah for forgiveness. He gripped the Christian’s hand.

    “Yusuf,” he responded.

    Fic summary:
    "Nicky feels like he’s the only true human being in the room; he’s the only one shifting with discomfort and wrinkling his nose and feeling so sick at watching what’s going on. “Hey,” he says to the scientists, “Can’t you knock him out while you do that?”

    “Why should we? We don’t have the budget for sedatives or pain killers.” One of the scientists says blandly, and that makes Nicky feel like he’s been shoved over an abyss. There should be empathy, or professional courtesy, or common decency, but there’s just a blank look of slight annoyance.

    Instead of killing the doctor like he really wants to, Nicky pulls his silenced handgun from a pocket and shoots the victim in the head. “They’re immortal and I don’t get off on watching people writhe in pain. Even if drugs aren’t in the budget you can bet bullets are.""

    Summary

    It was easy for the media to label them rivals—the best up-and-coming players at Real Madrid and Juventus. Nevermind that Yusuf "Joe" Al-Kaysani was Dutch and had actually started his career with Ajax in his home country. The media seemed eager to pit Nicolò "Nicky" di Genova's quiet, more reserved nature against Joe's flamboyant exuberance.

    However, time doesn't stop for even the best players and old blood needs to make way for the new. Joe's contract gets sold to Liverpool in the middle of one season and Nicky follows a year and a half later. Suddenly the "bitter rivals" are teammates.

    Summary

    “You’re talking about 200 years of history, Nile,” says Copley when she calls. “Do you really think you can fix that in six months?”

    “First off,” replies Nile, “I am not fixing anything. I’m not a damn therapist. This mess needs to be fixed because I don’t get an out. There’s not a world where I just fuck off to do my own thing. I could argue for a few years with my family, but well, Booker tried that and look where that’s got us.”

    “So you think this break will help?”

    Nile shrugs before remembering that Copley can’t see her. “Help or hurt, we aren’t working right now. Not as a team or a family. It’s one thing to realize that they missed a lot of what’s been going on with Booker, with what he’s been suffering from. It’s another to assume that knowing the past, changes the present. He still betrayed them. It’s messy. That’s the bottom line.”

     

    Or the story of found family coming together through accountability, forgiveness, a lot of therapy, and maybe a miracle or two.

    Summary

    The Guard had a week in New York City to relax and unwind before their job, and Nicky had been on edge about it ever since he pulled the sniper out of the box he picked up in Manhattan. Trusting Nicky's gut feelings should be a higher priority, because when a key part of the job goes horribly wrong, the group left quickly realizes that they're going to have to start chasing ghosts if they want to get their friend back.

    Summary

    Nicky had never really given much thought to marriage. He began loving Joe when their people were still intent on slaughtering each other. Their love was forbidden by every law and religion they'd encountered through the centuries, though Nicky knew in his heart that nothing so pure could be rooted in anything but good. They did not need any institution to acknowledge their love and yet…

    Summary

    Joe has been so thoroughly torn in two. Half of his heart wants to drag Nicky into his arms, kiss him until neither of them can breathe, whisper to him until they feel safe and whole again, find salvation in him like they have since long before Joe lost the ability to properly gauge the passing of time. His other half can’t bear to even look at Nicky for too long. He can’t see Nicky’s eyes, normally wide and beautiful and the color of sea-glass, without recalling them screwed up in pain. He can’t see Nicky’s skin without remembering it sliced into, pieces extracted, the stain of blood that lingered. He can’t see Nicky’s hair without remembering it caked in blood, too.
    //
    Nicky and Joe return to Malta after the events of the movie while Nile and Andy head for a safehouse in South America, because they're both a lot more wounded by it all than they'd like to admit, and are desperate to find each other again.
