  2. Summary

    In 2004, Thomas Nightingale and Abdul Haqq Walid signed an agreement. It's a bit like that civil partnership thing the Master of the Folly somehow knows nothing about - except, you know. Magicky.

    UPDATE 11/28/17 : I have re-ordered the series so that it is vaguely chronological, which should make reading the "the Faceless Man is a dick" arc in particular easier to read.

    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.

    Summary

    The team's first mission post-film goes pretty well, but no one's really as happy about it as they'd like to be. Nicky and Joe take advantage of their hotel room's luxurious shower to check in with each other and think about where they've been and where they're going.

    Summary

    Joe officially meets Nicky when one of his infamous bludgers knocks Joe clean off his broom, breaking two ribs and making him blackout as he falls. He’s forty metres up.


    A professional Quidditch AU with an auspicious beginning for a certain Beater and Seeker, a muggle-born Chaser finding her feet with(out) the dubious mentorship of a very tired Keeper, and an Italy versus France rivalry that apparently transcends even magic and every single sport.

    Summary

    “Horses?” Nicky says.

    “You know, horses,” Nile says, clearing up nothing. “Like, when you pass some of them in a field or something, you point and say ‘horses.’ Some people do it with cows, but I think that takes the fun out of it.”

    “Ah,” Nicky says, slowly. “An American ritual, then?”

    “I think it’s more of a ‘less than 900 years old’ thing, honestly.”

    Nicky hums. “So much is.”

     

    Or: A post-movie epilogue about being human together ft grocery stores, phone calls, car rides, shitty food, football games, and the wild hubris that you can renovate your own house without professional help.

    Summary

    “Don’t worry, it’s fine.” Nile said, the stab of guilt at ruining the night coming a little harder. Joe had been so excited when he saw the bunk beds, grinning widely as Nicky said don’t let me fall off this time.

    Nicky nodded but made no motion to stand up, to return to his husband’s arms. Instead he said, “I’m awake now. Do you want to go for a drive?”

    “A drive?” She looked at her watch, it wasn’t anywhere close to morning. Although the idea of getting out of their windowless room is an attractive one, she can’t deny it, “Are you sure?”

     

    In which: Nile is having trouble sleeping, and Nicky likes to drive.
