    @kathryyn2ys
    Okay you know how most of the statues on buildings in New York are all the same lady?? Well. I have found her Renaissance counterpart. Behold: whoever this guy was. He c l e a r l y got around

    @amberjunnie
    bro one of those is by Michelangelo and the other is by Caravaggio, if it's the same dude then he didn't age at ALL in like 30-40 years.

    Summary

    He wants Yusuf to hold his hand again. Grab his ankle. Flick his ear. Thrust his sword into his chest and breath into his mouth.

    Yet, they have the long ocean of eternity ahead of them. These whims are nothing but a swell under their ship: gone as soon as they come. Nicolo knows better than to jump overboard and drown alone trying to chase them.

    Summary

    That is not to say he isn’t afraid, there is still so much he does not understand about himself and Yusuf and God, the way his skin knits itself back together. Why is it him that is gifted such a thing when there were better men out there who deserved it?

    Here, tied to Yusuf in a dirty cell, yet stuck in a pleasant and comforting half-sleep, he is of the mind that maybe this is why. God wants him to spend eternity with this man, chasing raiders off from villages, and in the night curling around each other barely touching but loving one another just the same. Waiting until the day Nicolo finally gathers the courage to touch his companion purposefully and then maybe at that moment, mankind discovers heaven.

    Summary

    There's a substitute standing at the front of her Italian class and a shadowing student teacher who can't seem to keep his eyes off Mr. Smith. Clearly, the only solution to a bored student is to set them up instead of focusing on her education.
