    Summary

    Once, in the earliest days, when she was just starting to wrap her head around the ways her life had changed, the ways she had changed, she’d asked the others what dying felt like for them.

    To Nile, it’s what she imagines it would feel like to be a steady breeze on a cool autumn day. To be thoughtless, formless, unstopped and undisturbed by whatever it flows across.

    In the dark, she moves through like air, and all is soft.

    Beyond the dark, her ribs withdraw from the ripped tissue of her lungs, sharp edges snapping back into place. She’s torn back to life choking on her own blood.

    Summary

    "It would be easier if it were all hostage rescues and defending the helpless and making obvious choices that result in obvious good. But it's rarely that easy. The easy stuff generally gets taken care of. It's the rest that falls to us, along with whatever hindsight chooses to reveal. We try to use our experience to see a picture bigger than a lifetime and act accordingly and hope and pray that it is to the good.

    "History is written by the victors, but it lives on in the survivors and their stories become heirlooms to nations. What will the history books say about your time in Afghanistan? What stories will the daughters of those you helped tell? What will you remember when that slash across your throat isn't the defining moment of your existence anymore? What will the people of this region say of this time? What can we do to make it less full of sorrow? And can we live with the failure - or the success?"

    Summary

    "And then it suddenly dawns on her: in their eyes, nothing's changed. Between the fucked up mission in Tokyo and her and Booker not having kissed with an audience since then, it's quite possible none of them has noticed the shift in their relationship. Only a couple of days have passed and either way, they have always been touchy feely, even when they were only friends. Booker would often sit with his head in her lap and she would play with his hair or they would hug and kiss each other on the cheek. Basically, they're still the same, except now they kiss on the lips and have sex."

    OR: the one where Nile reveals her relationship with Booker, wins a bet and ends up having sex in a club restroom.

    Summary

    Summary

    “Yusuf?” Nicky breathes, and the man fires a blast into his chest.

    Nile winces - it’s gory, messy, he’ll be down for awhile - before his words catch up to her, and she whips her head around to stare at the man holding a gun on her family.

    She does recognize him, she realizes with a sinking feeling. She thought she’d just hadn’t had a dream about him in awhile, but she never made the connection between a man going about his mundane business in a store with the screaming one trapped under the ocean that had been haunting her. She just thought he was a random face plucked from her memories.

    Summary

    It’s just the two of them, no alphas this time, and Nile relaxes in his presence. Nicky lays out a sleeping bag, plumping it up in a comforting fashion. It makes her smile because that’s exactly what her mom would do when she was a kid. Her talent for nest making kept all the nightmares at bay.

    “For what it’s worth,” Nicky says, leaning over so he can look her in the eye. “We are glad to have you with us, Nile.” He wishes her a goodnight and leaves. Luckily, his calming omega scent still lingers. He smells like citrus, herbs, and a touch of gunpowder.

    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

    Booker, it turns out, doesn't much care for the term fuck buddies. Nile is trying not to use friends with benefits because she doesn't want him to think sex is the only benefit of their being friends.

    Both Nile and Booker know why they're sneaking around. Still, sometimes Nile can't resist taking a risk. She should have known better than to take Booker back to the apartment she's sharing with Andy and Nicky and Joe - but she learns her lesson pretty quickly when they arrive back earlier than expected...

    Summary

    "It's not like he doesn't know that she finds him attractive, she's told him a thousand times before, but never so bluntly. She feels like she's floating and sinking at the same time and the atmosphere is so charged and she's tired of them dancing around each other so fuck it, full speed ahead."

    OR: Booker and Nile get stoned and sometimes an external push is all that's missing.
