    Summary

    "Do you think we'll dream of each other, now?" Nicolò asks unexpectedly. "Like we do those two women?"

    It startles a real laugh out of Yusuf. "Who knows? Sometimes, Nicolò, I think I must have dreamed you entirely."

    After escaping the fall of Jerusalem together, Yusuf walks away from Nicolò in order to return home and move on with his life. It works for a while. Fifteen years later, Nicolò shows up in his dreams of the two immortal women.

    (In which Yusuf needs time to come to terms with destiny, and Nicolò to make peace with himself, before they can meet on equal ground.)

    Summary

    Yusuf snorts, as if to say it’s mutual. But the Italian struggles to sit upright, wincing and swearing, and – Yusuf cannot pretend he does not want to know, not when a creature will always seek out its like, its matched half as the Greek philosopher Plato wrote, and there is nobody else in the world, to the best of his knowledge, like the two of them. He says, “What’s your name?”

    There’s a very long pause. He can hear the other man deciding whether to lie. But there is no purpose to it, except for bitterness, and the answer is uttered cold and shortly. “Nicolò.”

    (Or: The inevitable backstory.)

    Summary

    It was an old Hylian custom, one that Sidon barely half-remembered from before the Calamity had happened, of a Hylian pressing their mouth to the back of a person’s hand.

    He remembered Mipha’s fond giggle as someone had done it to her in farewell, and the gesture seemed an appropriate way to honour Link as he departed to take on the next Divine Beast.

    (Originally going to be 'Five times Sidon kissed Link, one time Link kissed back' but they're not very good at keeping track of kisses)

    Summary

    The second evening, Nile falls asleep on the couch after watching a soccer match of some women’s team she likes, which takes a lot out of a person, apparently. 

    In which it has been three days since some people managed to have a fight.
    (This is a direct sequel to "A fair fight is nothing but bad tactics" so maybe read that one first. Or don't. I'm not your boss.)
