    Summary

    The arrival of Daedalus means new people staying in the city. That means medical check-ins. Nicky tries to keep the infirmary organised.

    Sequel to New Arrival. Could be read separately, but makes way more sense with context.

    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

    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.

    Hands. It's easy to believe that Nicky was Michelangelo's muse when his hands look like they belong in the sculpture wing of an art museum.

    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

    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

    Prince Yusuf is a Giver. He only has to touch a dead body to bring it back to life. The boy without a name is a Reaper. He only has to touch a living body to end that life. Neither can kill the other, but both are on opposite sides of a war without end.

    The boy without a name is sent to kill Yusuf, but nothing can kill a Giver. He's captured and imprisoned in a gilded cage meant to keep him safe and confined as the war wages on. But even though he doesn't speak, and doesn't go out of his way to engage with his guards, he soon learns that there is a far deadlier plot a foot amongst Yusuf's people than him. And he must decide if his loyalty is to the homeland that turned him into a monster, or to Yusuf and his sister Nile who have only ever called him 'friend.'

    Summary

    “It’s going to hurt and it’s going to tickle,” Nicky said, sitting beside Nile. “Try to keep your mind off of it.”

    “How, exactly, am I supposed to keep my mind off of it?”

    “I remember the first time I lost a limb,” he said. “Well, technically the second. The first was when Joe cut off both my arms once, but I was already dead at the time and they were back by the time I came to.”

    “Wow,” Nile said. “I know you guys killed each other, but that...”

    “Height of romance, isn’t it?” Nicky smiled.

    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

    “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

    “Don’t worry, it’s fine.” Nile said, the stab of guilt at ruining the night coming a little harder. Joe had been so excited when he saw the bunk beds, grinning widely as Nicky said don’t let me fall off this time.

    Nicky nodded but made no motion to stand up, to return to his husband’s arms. Instead he said, “I’m awake now. Do you want to go for a drive?”

    “A drive?” She looked at her watch, it wasn’t anywhere close to morning. Although the idea of getting out of their windowless room is an attractive one, she can’t deny it, “Are you sure?”

     

    In which: Nile is having trouble sleeping, and Nicky likes to drive.

    Summary

    The tap water tastes like salt and blood on Nile’s lips, in the mornings when she’s barely awake, when the world stands still, yet. Her knuckles ache; and her lungs feel heavy with lead, wedged into her ribcage. A language not her own is still strung on her vocal chords; and the flickering light of the street lamp outside is too bright; too harsh. Quynh is screaming.

    Summary

    What if they were meant to find each other at the end as well as at the beginning?

    Also - Imagine the last scene of the last episode of the TV show "Six Fee Under" but make it The Old Guard.

    Snippet:
    Standing in the doorway… is Nicky. Tall and unbowed, wearing the same hoodie and combat boots from this morning, leaning against the doorway, the sword in Joe’s hand also at Nicky’s waist.
    Joe drops Nicky’s sword, and his own.
    Nicky stands straight, pulling his hood back, and closes the distance between them. Looking down at Joe and taking his face in both hands, Nicky kisses him as soundly as the very first time, so very long ago.
    “What took you so long?” Joe breaths, tears in his eyes.
    Nicky chuckles and tilts his head towards the control room that had been plan A before it all went to hell, “We could do some good.” he answers.
    Joe takes his hand and they run.

    Summary

    She takes her request to Nicky who, she thinks, will be the least likely to laugh in her face at the ridiculousness of the matter as Andy is probably prone to do, won't even smirk or give her that raised eye-brow Joe has perfected. No, she asks Nicky because she has spent days tossing and turning, thinking about it and coming to a conclusion and he is the one who will take it seriously.

    "Can you teach me how to use a sword?"
