    Summary

    In which Nicky's at seminary because he likes to argue, not because he's becoming a priest, and Joe has missed this essential fact and can't figure out why this future-priest-slash-bartender is flirting with him.

    Summary

    Nicky feels like he’s the only true human being in the room; he’s the only one shifting with discomfort and wrinkling his nose and feeling so sick at watching what’s going on. “Hey,” he says to the scientists, “Can’t you knock him out while you do that?”

    “Why should we? We don’t have the budget for sedatives or pain killers.” One of the scientists says blandly, and that makes Nicky feel like he’s been shoved over an abyss. There should be empathy, or professional courtesy, or common decency, but there’s just a blank look of slight annoyance.

    Instead of killing the doctor like he really wants to, Nicky pulls his silenced handgun from a pocket and shoots the victim in the head. “They’re immortal and I don’t get off on watching people writhe in pain. Even if drugs aren’t in the budget you can bet bullets are."

    Yusuf laughs at him. “You won’t have a choice.”

    Summary

    "Wow," Nile said. "You sure know how to screw up a first impression."

    Nicky ignored her and rubbed at his forehead where a headache was forming. Nile was both wrong and right. Wrong, because this morning wasn't the first time Nicky had met Yusuf—or Joe as he was known at the time. And right, because Nicky's actual first impression wasn't much better.

    Joe and Nicky meet again sixteen years after high school. A Teacher AU.
