    Summary

    Because it’s only been nearly a year, and Nicky's yearned for the man for longer, way before they got together. And even with all the odds, with all the numbers combined, Nicky doesn’t believe that there’ll be enough time that can pass to heal the pain that’s clawing on his chest at that moment. That has been since Yusuf said it was over.

    Nile’s legs move from his lap, and suddenly there are arms around him, pulling him close and Nicky closes his eyes, pressing his face on Nile’s neck.

    “You’re allowed to hurt as long as you have to, Nicky,” Nile says to him, and it’s so, so kind. “You can tell me as much or as little as you can. I didn’t mean to push.”

    “I still love him,” he croaks out, like it needed to be heard, like his desperation is a call out for his heart. His heart that let him go, that told him that it’s over.

    ***

    or the one where Nicky is housemates with Nile after Yusuf breaks up with him. And when he finally opens up about it, Nicky realizes that his current predicament was brought on by misunderstandings and good intentions with ill results. But it’s too late. It’s been nearly a year; it doesn’t matter now.

    Right?

    Not if your housemate is Nile Freeman.

    Summary

    A look of wonder flashes across the woman's face. It burns bright and consumes her wariness for a split second, and when he sees the curiosity glinting deep in her eyes, he relaxes a fraction, because that's understandable.

    "A Lord of Time." She loosens her grip on the knife, then takes a step back which allows him to breathe out. "I've not heard that title before."

    "Well…" He tilts his head to the side. "I've had a lot of names over the years."

    Her response is as blunt as the rest of their conversation, but he can see the hint of a smile turning up the corner of her mouth. "So have I."

    Summary

    It is a truth universally acknowledged that a zombie in possession of brains must be in want of more brains.

    Or, Yusuf Al-Kaysani protects his sister's secret, kills zombies, and will definitely never fall in love with that cold-hearted, arrogant Nicolò di Genova.

    Or, I really wanted to write Joe/Nicky Regency fic but still have them kill things. Enjoy!

    Summary

    “So what. Are you. In trouble for.”

    “Well, um. I may have accidentally said in front of Mister Stark that yeeting people off rooftops is kind of fun.”

    Bucky turns. The spider boy is maskless (stupid, outside is still public) and looks properly abashed by this admission, which makes Bucky think it must be sexual in nature. He’d engaged in such things at that age, or so he’s told. He doesn’t really remember too much of that, all the girls they’d told him he’d chased just sort of… blurred. “What. Is a yeet.”
