    Summary

    "Can you teach me?"
    "Hm?"
    "The things you say, when we make love."

     

    Or, honing your dirty talk skills across the centuries because sometimes words of affirmation are also acts of service: the Nicolò di Genova story.

    Summary

    Does Yusuf realize the shirt is not his? Nicolo will never ask for it back. The sight of the worn seams hugging Yusuf’s shoulders feeds the greedy dragon in his belly—long starving. 

    ....

    “You left! You left me!” Words usually flow through Yusuf as easily as a dance, but now, he twists his hands as though he might grab the sentences he cannot find from the air.

    Summary

    Nicolò huffed and drew his knees up to his chest. “Well,” he said, “if that wasn’t what you were asking for, you could have just said so. You don’t need to insult everyone who’s used their –“

    “I understand,” Yusuf cut in hastily before Nicolò could repeat himself. Then the last sentence hit him. “Everyone who’s…you mean this is commonplace? How?”

    “Well,” said Nicolò, loosening his position just slightly, “not commonplace, exactly, but I wasn’t expecting you to be surprised. There are plenty of people who confessed to me that they’d done such a thing.” The same shadow that was apt to appear when he spoke of his past life shuttered down over his eyes, but it soon dissipated. “I was a priest, Yusuf. I’ve heard things.”

    (Nicolò knows everything about sex - except how to do it. He still manages to surprise Yusuf with the confessions he's heard.)

    Summary

    Joe stares for a long moment, mouth open, stomach somewhere on the floor. "Oh, fuck, you're a priest."

    He's seen Fleabag, okay, he knows how this goes.

     

    Or: Coffee Shop / Priest AU (with a twist).

    Summary

    “I think I wasn’t aware we needed a break,” Joe protests. The word feels dirty and contemptuous in his mouth. Like fast food and diet water, it was yet another ridiculous modern custom that need not apply to them. “Wait, have you been reading those trashy airport magazines with Nile again?”
