    Summary

    “This is my couch, I’m the one who dragged it under the bridge.”

    Nicky looks up, heavy-lidded, while the unexpected voice bounces repeatedly off pillared concrete and the iron beams that criss-cross overhead. There’s a guy – dark curls and darker eyes, with a pink slash of lips because they’re pressed thin with anger as he stalks forward on big-booted feet – that Nicky is pretty sure he recognizes from... around. Parties? The park, definitely; he’s got a battered skateboard tucked under his arm like it’s a sheathed weapon. Hell, it might just end up saving the guy’s life sometime, at this time of day and in this part of town.

    But this particular bridge is tucked away, a hidden gem where hardly anyone ever goes, since they’re currently atop a steep incline that leads down to the train tracks. Gets too loud for most, when the trains slow down to pass through the residential area on the far side of the bridge. The scream of the brakes clatters against all this steel and stone, so loud that it splinters into Nicky’s skull, reverberating between his ears until everything else goes silent.

    Nicky doesn’t mind the noise.

    -or-

    The skatepunk teenager AU that you never knew you wanted.

    Summary

    It is in that abiding conviction, in Nicolò’s soul-deep valor, that Yusuf finds himself heartened. They will walk down from this mountain together, as sure as they climbed its face at each other’s side.

    With that knowledge, Yusuf allows his eyes to fall shut once more, tipping his body gently forward to rest his forehead against Nicolò’s, seeking to share the depth of his assurance with him.

    He is not allowed the opportunity.

    Yusuf and Nicolò are separated. Destiny returns them to each other once more.

    Summary

    Joe Al-Kaysani likes to think of himself as a good person.

    At least this is what he tells himself as the most beautiful Italian man berates him about the merits of laundry room etiquette.

    He’d like to say that he has no idea how he got into this exact scenario. But if he did, he would be a big fat stinking liar.

    or Joe and Nicky are neighbors caught up in a laundry-based rivalry and fall in love along the way
