    Summary

    Nicky felt Joe unconsciously press four kisses in a row into the skin of Nicky’s shoulder, butterfly-wing-delicate, less firm and deliberate than the way he always kissed Nicky’s back when awake. Then Joe’s forehead rested against the top of Nicky’s spine and his body went lax again.

    Summary

    A scent wafts delicately into Nicky's path and he's lost. In an instant, a memory takes him, like a wave curling over his head, and washing him adrift in the undertow.

     

    Another cute, fluffy little ficlet.

    Summary

    Nile knows that Joe could take apart and reassemble any make or model of gun you put in front of him while blindfolded and probably handcuffed. She knows that he can competently fly more planes and man more ships than Nile has or will see for many, many years to come. She’s heard stories about him defusing bombs and making it home in time for dinner, and yet. He’s still mildly afraid of microwaves, and doesn’t know how to type with his thumbs. Nile has seen him cry at The Notebook, and then cry again hours later while telling Nicky about it.

    Or: found family, and moments of happiness, peace and healing between the chaos.

    Summary

    "I always thought that would be nice. The fantasies of children, hmm?”

    He says it as though the idea of him ever going to Malta is as far-fetched and ridiculous as other kids’ plans to grow up and become dinosaurs or superheroes, and the thought makes Joe feel unaccountably sad.

    “Maybe when you get the ransom money,” Joe says. His brow wrinkles, like he’s not sure if Joe means the comment as a sincere ‘maybe one day’ or a sarcastic call-back to what he said yesterday about how no one but the bosses was going to see any of that money, and Joe’s honestly not sure himself, caught uncomfortably between the instinct to like this man and the more logical inclination to remain wary if not outright hostile towards all of his captors.
    _
    A not-quite-modern AU in which Nicky isn't a crusader but is mixed up with a different set of people who do very bad things for not very good reasons, and Joe isn't defending Jerusalem but does end up in a different sort of trouble far from home, and a lot is different but some things never change.

    Summary

    An involuntary shudder runs down Nicky’s spine. He’d been doing so well. So well. The problem, of course, is that Nicky, like all people, has weaknesses, and articulate confidence is one of them. Perhaps that accounts for what he says next.

    “Prove it.”
