    Summary

    Nicolo Genova, or Nicky to his American friends, is just trying to get through his PhD program. He's writing his dissertation on Post-classical homoerotic poetry, but he cannot find anyone who speaks an extinct dialect of Arabic so he can translate a famed love poem by a little known poet, al-Kaysani.

    Strangely enough, his friend knows a professor on campus who can translate the poem. What starts as a simple request for assistance on his dissertation blossoms into something that Nicky -- shy, reserved Nicky who abandoned his plans for the priesthood months before ordination -- had never imagined for himself: true love.

    What he doesn't know is that Dr. Joseph Jones (his handsome, erudite, kind, lovely Joe) is harboring a secret too large for anyone to believe -- and that secret might just cost them everything.

    Summary

    Modern AU. Father Nicolò is on holiday in Jerusalem when he runs into Professor Al-Kaysani in a Museum. They disagree about art history and a war of words begins. There's definitely no other reason these two guys decide to start hanging. I'm bad at writing summaries. It'll get gay.

    Summary

    "This is not for us, our call is for something greater." Joe tried, as he walked quickly behind Nicky, boy still tight in his grip.

    "We have sacrificed so much, Joe. This is different, it feels like destiny." Nicky was not giving in, looking down at the bundle in his arms.

    Joe knew right then, that Nicky would fight to the end of the world to keep these two kids. And then he felt it too, but he needed to be smart. He needed to use logic in order to persuade Andy and Booker about their plan. Nicky would be to emotional about it, too Italian...
