    Summary

    Joe takes the last watch, sitting by the fire, eyes trained on the stars as he listens for intrusion. None comes. He is left in peace to reacquaint himself with Al-Dubb Ak-Bar, Al-Hamal, Ad-Dulfin, and to think of their names in other tongues—The Plough, Aries, Delphinius. As they stretch over and above him, shifting as though some great wind blows them to a new course across the sky, he smiles and thinks of Malta. Such stars that night.

    Summary

    Because it’s only been nearly a year, and Nicky's yearned for the man for longer, way before they got together. And even with all the odds, with all the numbers combined, Nicky doesn’t believe that there’ll be enough time that can pass to heal the pain that’s clawing on his chest at that moment. That has been since Yusuf said it was over.

    Nile’s legs move from his lap, and suddenly there are arms around him, pulling him close and Nicky closes his eyes, pressing his face on Nile’s neck.

    “You’re allowed to hurt as long as you have to, Nicky,” Nile says to him, and it’s so, so kind. “You can tell me as much or as little as you can. I didn’t mean to push.”

    “I still love him,” he croaks out, like it needed to be heard, like his desperation is a call out for his heart. His heart that let him go, that told him that it’s over.

    ***

    or the one where Nicky is housemates with Nile after Yusuf breaks up with him. And when he finally opens up about it, Nicky realizes that his current predicament was brought on by misunderstandings and good intentions with ill results. But it’s too late. It’s been nearly a year; it doesn’t matter now.

    Right?

    Not if your housemate is Nile Freeman.

    Summary

    AU with what would happen in Nicky had been stuck in the Iron coffin and come out- and how the family *slowly* heals.

    --

    Booker had spent 250 where he had been haunted by dreams of the salt, insanity, and a dark and cold fury. He spent 250 years haunted by the spectre of Nicolo.

    Then three months into his banishment after Merrick, on a random Sunday night and drunk in Paris, he didn’t dream of sea or salt. Instead, He dreamt that he knew what it was like to breathe and not have his lungs betray him as his family had done.

    He dreamt of Nicolo.

    Nicolo was free.

    ---

    The path to forgiveness does not run smooth.

    Summary

    In the center of the sheet, in Joe’s lovely cursive handwriting, were the words:
    DO YOU LIKE ME?
    CIRCLE: Yes or YES
    This man. This ridiculous, 900 year old man that made Nicky’s heart both melt and race. So full of love and mischief and an infallible ability to make him happy. Nicky clenched his jaw to not break into a smile.
