    Summary

    When Nicolo was younger - much younger, or perhaps just less war-worn - he was often told he had a face of an angel. He wondered now, as he did many times before, if that trait was somehow instrumental to his destiny in priesthood, and thus to his becoming what he now was…

    If he had a face of an angel, then the eyes across from him had to be the eyes of some vengeful god. It had to mean something… He dreamt of those eyes ever since he arrived into this strange, ruthless land - the holiest land. Those eyes must’ve been a premonition, or perhaps a catalyst in their own right…

    “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

    For just a moment, Nicolò wished not for the first time that the poem was about him. And then he reminded himself, that they were friends. Just friends.

    Summary

    "He has been tending the seed of love in Yusuf’s heart for centuries, and the roots are thick knots, tangled in every branch of his bronchial tree. When it breaks, he can feel the splintering stems like a broken bone."

    Summary

    Often when he had small jobs such as this to do, Nicolò would come to sit beside him and watch closely, or sing in a wavering voice. The sound was pleasing enough on its own, even discounting it as proof of the trust they were beginning to share. On one occasion Yusuf had caught the melody and joined in, only for Nicolò to stutter to a stop and stare at him, something unreadable in his face.

    Summary

    The sidestreets are dead silent compared to the bustle of downtown, letting both ease and worry simmer in Joe’s bones as they pass only occasional pedestrians on their walk to the address Copley had given them. It’s a small apartment, part of a stonework building that’s likely just as old as Booker himself and a part of Joe wonders if he’d chosen it for the familiarity. A bigger part of him finds that it still hurts to care.

     

    Or,

    Andy doesn't have ninety years, but she does have a plan.

    Summary

    Joe remembers the Last Day, carves it into his mind so deeply that no moment is forgotten. The Last Day is sacred and holy because it has Nicky in it.

    It’s the last day Joe has Nicky.

    -

    "I did the math in my head while Quynh was underwater,” Joe says cooly as soon as Booker sits, taking the flask from his hand. “I worked out that if it took sixty seconds for her to die, and seconds for her to come back, then in five hundred years she’d died over 250 million times.”

    “Joe, don’t...”

    “..If he’s out there, he’s already died just under 100 thousand times.” Joe finishes. Booker says nothing but lays a hand on his shoulder, because what words can bring comfort in the face of that devastating knowledge?

    Summary

    Nile notices that Joe isn't sleeping well without Nicky when they are on a separate mission. She buys Joe a body pillow to spoon instead, partially as a joke to cheer him up, but mostly in the hope that it might actually help him get some sleep.

    Summary

    “More things should bother him about Nicolo. But they don’t. This isn’t some illiterate, blood soaked zealot. This isn’t a Frank. This is Nicolo. This is his Nicolo. He should be more worried about how he feels. How Nicolo makes him feel. But he isn’t. But on nights like these, Yusuf finds himself worrying, worrying that love, bittersweet and unrequited, has made him blind."

    Or, Yusuf isn’t alarmed that he’s in love with a man, or even a gross, barely monolingual Catholic man (read: holy trash panda)- he’s alarmed that when he looks at this man he forgets things he doesn’t think he can ever forgive.

    Summary

    Sometimes, when one of them suffers a catastrophic head injury, it takes a while to remember it all. The last time had been Booker. They’d taken turns, for the few days after, filling in all the gaps that Booker couldn’t recall at the time. The memories all came back eventually, but at least there was a warning. Some things just shouldn’t be remembered alone.

    In which Nicky's brain takes a moment to heal, Joe takes a bath, and I write a fic based off a quote from a book I haven't yet read.

    Summary

    Joe gives a slow exhale. “Sometimes,” He begins, and he speaks quietly, like it's a secret only for them, not to be shared with the stove or the sink or the kitchen cabinets. “It’s like I feel too much for my body to contain.”

    Nicky invites him with his eyes to continue. He has very inviting eyes.

    “For example, sometimes I’m so in love with you that I have to do something about it. I can’t just sit with it,” Joe admits.

    Nicky’s face cracks into a hesitant smile. “Yes, I understand that.”

    They stand in silence for a moment, Nicky watching the food, Joe watching Nicky.

    “I think I like that feeling,” Nicky says. “I like to be overwhelmed with you.”
