    Summary

    Caught up in thoughts of her newfound immortality and the weight of everything it implies, Nile can't sleep, so Nicky--kind and caring soul that he is--makes her something to eat while they have that sort of topic-drifting conversation we all tend to fall into late at night.

    Summary

    After nine hundred and twenty-one years, Yusuf and Nicolo have found many ways to tell the other that he loves him.

    Yusuf loves words, loves poems and speeches and art he has seen and built and breathed for centuries; Nicolo loves acts of service, loves to help and to protect and to provide. Over the years, gifts are exchanged, touch is treasured, and every waking moment they can spend together, they are inseparable.

    Nine hundred and twenty-one years, and thousands of ways to say I love you.

    Summary

    Andy did this on purpose, she’s sure of it.
    No matter how many excuses about skillsets and plans and 'you’ve been working on your Arabic, it’ll be good practice, Nile'… she knows now it was all a bunch of lies. There can be no other explanation for why she has been here, stuck with Joe in the middle of a hot, Italian summer while Andy has taken Nicky to the northern most part of France.
    It is a unique and unexpected kind of hell.

    (A series of seven stories, snapshots of the first few years of Nile's time with the team. I'm trash for Nile & Nicky & Joe dynamics so there's a lot of that in here, but the others are all part of the craziness as well.)

    Summary

    Nile has never seen a palm tree up close before. She’s seen them in pictures, on t-shirts, in movies, but never right before her, tall and lush and green, casting tapered shadows over the ground she stands on. She thinks it’s magnificent. A part of her never wants to leave this beautiful place. Another part wants to see everything, everywhere.
    //
    Following the events of the movie, Nile, Andy, Joe, and Nicky head to a safehouse in Brazil, where Nile learns to sword-fight, the true extent of how much Nicky and Joe love each other, and how to belong in her new family.
