    Summary

    “Peter,” Nightingale says, “it’s nothing, I assure you, it’s -” he steps towards me as though he’s trying to comfort me but wobbles, swaying on his feet. I lean in to steady him without even thinking about it, catching his elbow and keeping him up, and, as I grab him, Nightingale makes a long, low moan.

    “Um,” I say, and Nightingale looks mortified.

    Summary

    Plo has an idea. Mace agrees, and everything snowballs right into hell from there.

    (Or: Mace and Cody get married in order to give the clones citizen status. Before they can focus on that, though, they're going to have to deal with ancient Sith artifacts, evil prophets, plots to overthrow the Supreme Chancellor, lost planets, monsters warped by Sith alchemy, inconvenient feelings, and Darth Sidious turning his eye on a potential new apprentice. Just...not in that order.)

    Perhaps this is what it means to come back from the dead, Amelia thought. That nothing will ever frighten you again.

    Summary

    A dam bursts inside Nicky, and he is so swept away in the tide of his relief he admits everything. “I meant it,” he says. “Of course I meant it, I’ve fallen in love with you. Let me keep you. Let me stay with you. Marry me, Joe.”

    “I thought I would spend my nights in darkness,” Joe tells him, and Nicky knows this about him, too, that he will not give a straight answer when a poem would do. “I thought I’d live on a pale shadow of what you’ve made me feel. But you – your smile could light up the darkest night, Nicolò. Your heart is so sweet, my love, you’ve captured mine so easily. I’ll stay with you for as long as you’ll have me.”

    Nicky would blame the wine, he would blame the summer breeze, the beautiful view, temporary insanity, anything, but it would be a lie and he’s an honest man. If he’s drunk on anything, it’s Joe. If anything makes him shiver, it’s Joe. If there is any beautiful view, it’s Joe’s eyes, bright with tears and smiling at him. If he’s insane, it’s only love.

    OR: The one where Joe and Nicky get married after knowing each other for two weeks.
