    Summary

    Logically, she knew - in some faint recess of her overactive imagination - she wouldn’t die but her anxiety had her dredging up faint flashes of Quynh screaming and pounding against the confinements of her watery grave.

    Or; Nile is not having a very happy-shiny day at the moment.

    Summary

    There are times when Nicky and Joe thoroughly enjoy it if the other is the subject of appreciative gazes — after all, it's only natural that such beauty would attract stares. The only dispute is which of them is more deserving of these praises.

    Or, in other words, Nicky and Joe being ridiculously sappy when the other gets hit on or stared at, while Nile learns that jealously is not a thing for these two.

    (Takes place in a somewhat fluffy and idyllic post-canon universe.)

    Summary

    "Oh nice. What's the blog about?" Nile locks her phone again and turns towards Joe, who is now looking at her curiously.
    "It's mostly poetry and short stories. A few sketches and illustrations here and there, sometimes photos."

    OR

    Nile's favourite blog updates (finally).

    Summary

    Sequel to The Nightmare Club.

    Nile didn't think she could belong to a weirder, more selective group then the Old Guard. But being immortal doesn't mean you stop having nightmares.

    When that happens, the Nightmare Club meets to play cards.

    Summary

    “Have you ever been to a concert?”

    Joe thought it might be a joke at first, but when Nile stared at him expectantly, he realized she was serious.

    Summary

    “Ok, I have to ask.”

    “Please do.”

    “Why are you reading a book about the First Crusade?”

    “Because I want to know what happened. Why else do people read history books?”

    “But you were there.”

    Nicky shrugged. “Joe was at the Argentina vs England game in 1986, but he got stuck in the toilet and missed Maradona’s goal.”

    Nile stared at him. “What?”

     Nile gets to know Joe and Nicky a little better.

    Summary

    "Nile had heard of them before--extractors. They went into dreams and tried to extract information. Andy introduced them to her as Booker, Joe, and Quynh. She began explaining that Booker was the forger--an identity thief who was able to change the dreamer’s perception of him. Quynh was Andy’s right hand woman, a manager of sorts who made Andy’s big goals become reality. That left Joe. Their...well his role wasn’t exactly clear, but he used to be an architect. Which is what Nile was supposed to be."

    Based heavily on the movie Inception (2010), which you don't necessarily need to see for this fic to make sense. Nile is hired as a dream architect to replace Joe, who's been fucking up missions due to his grief for Nicky, who has died permanently but keeps showing up in dreams.

    Summary

    Nile threw up her hands. “You guys are all ‘love of my life’ this and ‘best beloved’ that, and now what, you want me to be extra-clear on how much of a giant war criminal your husband was?”

    Summary

    Caught up in thoughts of her newfound immortality and the weight of everything it implies, Nile can't sleep, so Nicky--kind and caring soul that he is--makes her something to eat while they have that sort of topic-drifting conversation we all tend to fall into late at night.

    Summary

    Jerusalem, 1104: Five years after the First Crusade has captured the city for Christendom, the uneasy new Latin Kingdom is divided by political intrigue both mortal and magical, especially when whispers arise that the fabled -- and terrifyingly powerful -- Ring of Solomon might have been found. While a horde of supernatural creatures compete and cut throats in their plans to retrieve it at all costs, a young human woman named Nile finds herself at the center of a dangerous, exciting, and magical adventure with a mysterious Italian vampire and a clever Egyptian djinn. As she discovers secrets she's never known and kingdoms she's never dreamed, Nile comes to realize that she -- and her companions -- may be the key to an age-old mystery, and part of something much larger than any of them can imagine.

    (If only those two idiots could take their eyes off each other and stop arguing long enough to help.)

    Summary

    Oh, she’s had it. “You’re fucking with me,” Nile says. “I did die, and this is Hell, riding around Afghanistan being grilled about my past sins by some shitty Virgil.”

    “You can call me Joe.”

    “What do you and the others do, Joe?”

    “Depends on the century,” he shrugs.

    “Professional kidnappers?”

    Joe shows his teeth. “It’s very cute that you think this is professional.”

    “No, but maybe the others know what they’re doing.” A flash of irritation cracks his chummy facade. She wonders if he has any shame she can jab. Fighters and soldiers, he said. “Are you mercenaries?”

    “It’s a little more complex than that.”

    “Sure,” she says. “Whatever you need to tell yourself. How many people have you killed? Just averaged, across the centuries.”

    His mouth twists. “Maybe Hell is riding around Afghanistan being judged by a US Marine. How many people have you killed, Freeman?”

    She closes her mouth, hard. Joe doesn’t smile, but his satisfaction is palpable. 

    - - -

    In which Joe is the one who goes to retrieve Nile.

    Summary

    Joe just laughs merrily. Nile doesn't think she's seen him this happy before. Nicky's also smiling, and Andy looks unbelievably content. Nile wonders whether it's the chance to relax that's put them in such a good mood or the familiarity of routine. Whichever one it is, they should do it more often.

    It's Ramadan and Nile's getting to know her new family.

    Summary

    Nile dreams of a man drowning, over and over and over.

    And- between every other curveball thrown her way in the last 72 hours- Nile realizes she has to draw the line somewhere between passively accepting it and doing something about it.

    Summary

    “And it’s enough?” Nile asks. “It’s enough to keep you going?”

    “It’s enough to make me love this world and so many of the people in it,” Joe says, soft but sure. “We can’t change evil. We can only try to end each day having come out on top of it, and hopefully having helped others do the same. It may never go away, but other, better things aren’t ever going away either. That’s so much more important. Vital. That’s what I’d want you to remember, if you can.”
     

    When you have a seemingly infinite number of days ahead of you, some will turn out well and some won't. And sometimes you can’t tell which is which until the day is over. Nile gets to experience the whole gamut with each of her new family members while finding her way through this weird, wonderful immortal life.

    Summary

    The realization washes over Nile when she least expects it, lying under the stars on a glow-in-the-dark constellation blanket (“Sometimes, you need things even if they’re impractical. Especially if they’re impractical,” Joe had shrugged) with a notebook and Joe beside her. She bolts upright, startling Joe away from their homemade telescope.

    “I died,” she says.
