    Summary

    When a mission goes wrong, the Old Guard team discovers to their consternation that Nicky has forgotten his entire life back to his first death. Which is especially unfortunate because, at the time of Nicky’s first death, he was a murderous Crusader hell-bent on killing Joe.

    Now, stuck in their safe house with a furious religious fanatic who believes the Siege of Jerusalem was that morning and he’s been kidnapped by his enemies, Andy, Booker, and Joe struggle to figure out how to restore Nicky’s memories, while Joe faces the prospect of a future where he never does.

    (Rating changed from T to E as of Ch. 12, however, there are notes so the chapter can be skipped to maintain a T rating if the reader so chooses.)

    Summary

    For this Kinkmeme prompt

    "Nile comments (jokingly, lovingly) how she doesn’t get how a Hot Fashion Icon Joe can stand to be around Fashion Trashfire like Nicky. This is all friendly ribbing and they all laugh about it until someone proposes a makeover cue montage.

    Except the more Nicky thinks about it the more he thinks she’s... right? He’s never paid attention to what he’s wearing and what if Joe just doesn’t think he’s putting effort into his looks? He’s not putting effort for into looking pretty for Joe, ergo, is taking them and their relationship for granted? "

    Summary

    Nicolò looks sheepish. "I killed you yesterday, and you awoke at the same time, the same place. But when I die, I wake at different times, different places. This bolt," he tosses it to Yusuf and it lands in the dirt by his knee, "it killed me yesterday, but I woke up many years from now. I lived several lifetimes in those places before returning here and pulling it from my neck."

     

     

    Nicky's lives and deaths are different. He is unstuck from time - at every death he revives into a different point in his life. Each time he is struck down he wonders, will he awaken to deserts and swords? Will it be gunshots in cities? Joe and Nicky build a fractured life together, falling in love across two different sets of centuries, then patiently waiting for the other to fall in love too. He meets the rest of their little family out of order, but they still build a family around Nicky's involuntary time-traveling.

    Summary

    Professor Jones is definitely the hottest faculty member any of them have ever seen.
    He is, in a word, a snack.

    But the Italian who just interrupted his art history lecture just might give him a run for his money.

    Summary

    There are times when Nicky and Joe thoroughly enjoy it if the other is the subject of appreciative gazes — after all, it's only natural that such beauty would attract stares. The only dispute is which of them is more deserving of these praises.

    Or, in other words, Nicky and Joe being ridiculously sappy when the other gets hit on or stared at, while Nile learns that jealously is not a thing for these two.

    (Takes place in a somewhat fluffy and idyllic post-canon universe.)
