    Summary

    “He wasn’t a good sport.”

    Fjord grins, taking a swing, which is promptly caught. “Am I a better one?”

    Caduceus raises an eyebrow. “You’re nothing like Colton. Anyway, it’s… I feel weird comparing you to him.”

    “You compared Beau to Calliope.”

    Caduceus’s grimace deepens. “Yeah, but, she’s…” He exhales. “It’s just different.”

    “Oh, sure, now it’s different. Didn’t feel so different when you blinded me.”

    As life on Rumblecusp slowly returns to normal, the Mighty Nein take some time to sharpen up their martial skills. Sparring with Caduceus would involve fewer head injuries if Fjord could just stay focused.

    Summary

    “Why us?” Beau asks, a quiet night on watch, the two of them awake in the dome, while everyone else sleeps.

    “It’s a disease, Beauregard. Why do some people get cancer and others don’t? Why do some people catch a cold and others don’t?” Caduceus explains, a look of fondness on his face before the cough comes, violent red and green erupting from his throat. “We are just lucky, I guess.”

    Essek, Beau, and Caduceus are all suffering from unrequited love, and a disease that causes flowers to grow in their lungs. Why them and not the rest of the Mighty Nein, who knows, but this disease seems made to cause them suffering. Hanahaki AU: Beaujester(/yasha), Shadowgast, Fjorclay.

    Summary

    The thing about being a thousand years old was that years didn’t feel very long anymore; they were an over-produced commodity. The years of studying at al-Azhar wouldn’t feel like much at all to him now, but back then, they’d lasted centuries, and perhaps it was because all the time he spent without Nicky felt interminable, even before he’d known who it was he was missing. He’d carried with him a vague and inexplicable sense that he was waiting for something to begin, though he knew not what.

    ***

    “I think I was in love with you before I knew you.”

    Nicky laughed into the corner of Joe’s jaw, breath tickling his neck. After all these years, he’d memorized the shape of Nicky’s nose, the sensation of his stubble at every stage of unshavenness, absolutely every imaginable corner and contour of his body, and the more he knew it the more he loved it, like an old favorite song that developed new layers of meaning every time you listened. “Always the poet.”

    “I really do think so, though,” Joe chuckled. “I die of love for you,” he said, switching to old Arabic, quoting Abū Nuwās. “And then I return to life so I can kiss you one more time,” he continued. His own words.
