    Summary

    What will he say today, I wonder. I turn on my computer, I wait impatiently as it boots up. I go on-line, and my breath catches in my chest until I hear three little words: You’ve got mail. I hear nothing, not even a sound on the streets of New York, just the beat of my own heart. I have mail. From you. // A You've Got Mail AU.

    Summary

    Nicolò had heard of what Muslims did to Christian men. Although his companion had been nothing less than honorable towards him, sometimes he would afix him with his intense gaze and Nicolò would be left shaken, not knowing whether his shivers were anticipation or fear. Either way, Yusuf’s big hands and broad shoulders didn’t help the situation.

    (The five times Nicolò resisted temptation and the one time he didn't)

    Summary

    Yusuf snorts, as if to say it’s mutual. But the Italian struggles to sit upright, wincing and swearing, and – Yusuf cannot pretend he does not want to know, not when a creature will always seek out its like, its matched half as the Greek philosopher Plato wrote, and there is nobody else in the world, to the best of his knowledge, like the two of them. He says, “What’s your name?”

    There’s a very long pause. He can hear the other man deciding whether to lie. But there is no purpose to it, except for bitterness, and the answer is uttered cold and shortly. “Nicolò.”

    (Or: The inevitable backstory.)
