    Summary

    “Um, guys?” Nile looks from one to the other. “What the fuck is going on?”

    Andy chuckles softly and nods towards Booker. “You tell her.”

    “Andy and I regularly bet on whether or not Joe and Nicky slip in the shower and break their necks,” Booker explains and shrugs.

    “What now?” Nile blinks at him. “You’re kidding, right?”

    Andy shakes her head. “He’s really not.”

     

    Or the one where Andy and Booker regularly bet on Joe’s and Nicky’s adventures in the shower.

    Summary

    It’s often how they pass an evening, Joe reading and Nicky mending their shirts. So it isn’t exactly a new scene to Joe, he has plenty of sketches of his beloved like this, but it is still a sight to behold.
    The firelight is caressing Nicky’s cheek and playing on the rich silk of his waistcoat, still buttoned up even though they’ve been home for hours. Joe can’t decide if he loves the fashions of the nineteenth century or if he hates them. There’s so many layers and buttons between him and Nicky. He does, however, have to admit that the sight of Nicolò in a waistcoat never fails to leave him breathless.

    Summary

    “Horses?” Nicky says.

    “You know, horses,” Nile says, clearing up nothing. “Like, when you pass some of them in a field or something, you point and say ‘horses.’ Some people do it with cows, but I think that takes the fun out of it.”

    “Ah,” Nicky says, slowly. “An American ritual, then?”

    “I think it’s more of a ‘less than 900 years old’ thing, honestly.”

    Nicky hums. “So much is.”

     

    Or: A post-movie epilogue about being human together ft grocery stores, phone calls, car rides, shitty food, football games, and the wild hubris that you can renovate your own house without professional help.

    Summary

    “I know you don’t hold the same anger at Booker that I do but –“ He begins, when Nicky surprises them both by cutting in with a harsh laugh.

    “Sometimes your love for me blinds you too much” Nicky admonishes quietly.

    In other words, Immortality doesn't fix broken hearts and Joe and Nicky are learning to deal with Booker's betrayal.

    Summary

    Set in the car journey after they escape Merrick's labs

     

    The car is silent. Andy drives slowly, weaving in and out of the heavy London traffic, her expression one of fierce concentration.
    Joe is in the passenger seat beside her, body held taut with the violent strings of anger. Booker, behind him, has crumpled himself low into the seat, as if by taking up the least space as he possibly can, they might forget that he is there.
