Canon: The Old Guard
Pairing: Nile Freeman/Sebastien le Livre

Summary: Booker remembers that first conversation when Nile held her hand in the fire just to see what would happen. To test herself. He does not want to be another flame to her if all he does is rend her flesh.
Recommendation: So freaking good! I love all the slow romance and poetry from Booker and the quiet, steady affection from Nile. I love Nicky and Joe with all of their teasing and advice, and Andy and Quynh with their support that isn’t usually advice except to send her to Joe and Nicky. All of this is beautiful and nothing hurts.
