    Summary

    In truth this is but the latest bad day in a series of terrible ones: four days ago Yusuf was kidnapped and tied up and slung over the back of a horse, and the days since he has spent with a bag over his head as that horse carried him further and further away from his home. That was insulting enough, but being trussed up and left propped against the trunk of a tree without even a guard to stand over him is a new low. 

    At least these bandits haven’t tried to slit his throat, and seem more interested in kidnapping than actual bodily harm. But flopping around trying to find something to cut his bonds with is a particular flavor of humiliation he never wishes to experience again, especially when he hears people coming back to the camp, and the only thing Yusuf can do to preserve his dignity is to flip onto his back.

    (An Ella Enchanted AU)

    Now with a wedding epilogue!

    Summary

    “It happened to you too,” Nile says softly. “I can see how worried you are about him, but he’s not the only one who got hurt. Immortal or not, no one just walks off being tortured.”

    “It wasn’t torture,” Joe says blandly.

     

    After Merrick, Nicky needs to be alone for a little while, and Joe needs not to be.

    Fortunately, Nile could use some company too.

    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.
