    Summary

    Miracles cannot be replicated. Can I tell you a story?

    Copley found them. Merrick kept them. Kozak studied them.
    In the end, it did them no good, no good at all.

    Summary

    The plan goes thusly: he will find the busiest inn in all of Cairo, and he will ask for a room, and when they inevitably only have one bed to spare, he will shrug and say it can’t be helped, and then he will have Nicolò all to himself, within four safe walls. He will say, “Nicolò, you are the stars that light up my night sky,” or perhaps, “Nicolò, finding you has been like finding safe haven to one lost at sea”, and most crucially, “Nicolò, may I please kiss you?”

    The plan does not work.

    (In which Joe cannot catch a break or get a goshdarn single room at Ye Olde Holiday Inne)

    Summary

    The apology in Nile’s eyes tells Nicky he’s let his expression slip in a way he hasn’t in centuries, his whole broken heart on display.

    Or: the one where Nicky has a Michelangelo painting and also 500 years of angst over a misunderstanding with Joe

    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

    “Are we friends now?” Joe asks. Nicky reaches up to pat Joe on the back, shifting his weight through his hips so he’s got enough power to push Joe into the water. When Joe comes up, spluttering, hair hanging lank across his face, he stares at Nicky, who looks back at him with a lopsided smile.

    “Now we’re friends.”

     
    Ten years, two best friends, one couch that seems to have its own agenda. Friends-to-lovers with all the trimmings.
