Ms Polarcell, i hope you dont mind me saying this but your love for mr Joe theoldguard is so apparent in your works (even if i didnt see your gush posts haha) it shines through in every one of your drawings of him, he shines from inside, the love is in every little line and detail and it certainly does him justice. I feel so tender just looking at them ♡

Of course, I don’t mind you saying this!!! It is true, I do love him very much, and I am glad you think I do him justice, I certainly try to draw him with all the love I have, so it makes me happy to hear that you feel like it is coming through. Thank you so much for your kind words ❤️❤️❤️!

I am hopefully going to do a full Joe and otter daemon sketch dump at some point, but I felt like I couldn’t let this ask go answered without a drawing of joe, so here he is, otter daemon and all. Slightly longer hair this time because I said so

okay this scene

and this scene.

I have so many thoughts and emotions. Booker just betrayed the family. he even shot Andy and gave her an empty gun. and right away Andy is already trusting him enough to have him protect her (and the way he uses his WHOLE BODY to shield her) and to give her more ammo.

I could write so much more about this but let me just cry about how important them and their relationship is to me please

She doesn’t even look at him. She just extends her hand, expecting him to hand over the ammo. How do you even explain the look on Booker’s face in that split second?

Hiraeth - Pelo Irto, a joenicky, andromaquynh ghost!au

Joe Al-Kaysani is thirty-three and completely burnt out. Once a Pulitzer Prize nominee reporter, he now struggles to get out of bed and cannot find the strength to write the compelling articles he had begun his career with. In his head, the trauma from his childhood keeps playing over and over again, slowly torturing him.

Quynh, his boss and possibly his closest friend, decides to take the situation into her hands: in the north of the country there is a mansion that has been the setting of dozens of tragedies since it was first built, and she wants Joe to go there and investigate, pretending to be a simple housekeeper.

Although reticent at first, Joe agrees to Quynh’s plan and moves into the mansion, where he soon gets close to Nicky, the shy and silent younger son of the owners who has dedicated his life to the church and whose neck is hugged by a clerical collar.

It doesn’t take much, however, for Joe to begin realizing that that house is unlike any other, and that perhaps haunted mansions aren’t just a thing for horror stories…

Coming (hopefully) soon…

Special thanks and much love to my beta readers @energievie @thebiggestnaturaldisaster @god-of-narcissism @haniawritesthings they were a Delight to work with and my story was very much improved 💕💕💕💕💕

Read on ao3

Warnings: Trichotillomania, emotional hurt/comfort (please let me know if I should tag anything else)

It was still unbelievable. It had been four months and Andy still couldn’t believe Quynh was back with her. Most of the time when she had to remind herself this was real, that she wasn’t only dreaming, she would have to find Quynh and tell her again how much she loved her. This time, as she mulled over the miracle of Quynh’s return in her mind, she only needed to whisper it in her ear.

“I love you.” Andy murmured, stroking Quynh’s hair.

Quynh was already half-asleep but she still smiled and managed to mumble it back.

Quynh was still getting used to the twenty-first century. She loved the modern conveniences and how simple many things had become, her favorites being a toss-up between showers and how easy it can be to make food, but everything was so new and different it was still a lot to process, still a lot she needed to catch up on. She would excuse herself from the group frequently, still feeling the need to rest a lot. This meant ample time for cuddles and Andy was not complaining.

Andy continued to stroke her hair as the two of them drifted off. She was surprised when her hand ran across a smooth patch on the back of her head. She ran her hand over it again, wondering what it could be. It was covered by the rest of her long hair. She tried to look but couldn’t with how Quynh was laying on top of her. She shrugged it off, since it hadn’t been bothering Quynh enough to mention it and quickly joined her love in slumber.

Scene Caffeine #3: Joe likes to sleep. Always has and always will. When Andy sent him a text yesterday that they were all coming tomorrow morning at 8 AM sharp, he had set his alarm for 7:55. His morning routine was fairly simple and he was confident that he would be able to get ready by the time they arrived. 

They should have left the cuffs in the drawer last night.

Kalkara, Malta (by Witek Tomek)

@oldguardhc

It’s so easy to imagine Joe and Nicky walking hand in hand down this street, their shoulders occasionally brushing. Maybe Joe points out the yellow window because wasn’t that green last time? 2O2G better have a scene in Malta or I swear

wickedpact:

you know, thinking about the line ‘i believe we were meant to find each other’, its interesting bc nicky says ‘i believe’ in that line and not ‘we believe’.  when he says ‘i believe’ i always interpreted that as a nicky vs. booker and andy thing, especially since they both immediately disagree with nicky right after he delivers that line. nicky believes the immortals are ~fated~ to meet, while andy and book dont seem to believe in destiny at all.

but the use of ‘i believe’ also excludes joe, not just booker and andy. nicky could have said ‘joe and i believe’ or again ‘we believe’ but he said ‘i’. and the context of him saying that line to nile is ‘i believe all of the immortals were meant to find each other [answering her question why the immortals dream of each other]’. but his stare at joe as he delivers that line gives it the additional meaning of ‘i believe joe and i were meant to find each other’, which is what joe winks at.

but again, its ‘i believe’. implying that joe doesnt believe he and nicky were fated to meet? which is fascinating considering how they met in the first place

image

!!!!! yeah i ALSO am Always thinking abt that panel, bc its such an interesting vague little line setting joe apart from the others.

(here is the panel for those who havent seen it)

image

it also makes me think abt this one bit in the greg podcasts where greg was talking about marwan, and mentioned that marwan was more like nicky than joe bc “hes very thoughtful and hes clearly a big thinker" implying joe isn’t the type of person to like…… dwell on things, i guess? theres a lot of ways you can interpret these lines and its interesting

ksksksksks i started writing this as a reply in the replies BUT APPARENTLY IT GOT TOO LONG SO:

i LOVE this because it helps separate Joe and Nicky to a certain degree, and in a really like, adorable way. Like a) you could read Joe as being a DIFFERENT kind of romantic from Nicky, like a practical, personal romantic (we work really hard  on our relationship/every day i think of ways to show nicky my love for him/we decided to put aside our differences and fall in love, we chose each other not just then but every day since/etc etc etc), vs Nicky who is “we were fated to meet/destiny made us for each other/destiny picked us for each other/there is a higher power at play), which is all REALLY INTERESTING because does it mean that joe thinks it’s LESS romantic if they were made for each other (rather than something they chose) and for nicky it’s MORE romantic if it was destiny (because there’s a higher purpose at play)?? and then also b) outside of just their relationship, but at the broader theological implications, is Joe more of a clockwork universe theist, where everything is set up but then WE are the ones who decide things, who make choices, bad or good, and that results in the world we live in, and so the moral obligation on us is high, our destiny is in our hands, etc: you’ve been given immortality but now it is yours to do with what you will, and that is what’s so powerful, they could choose to do good or not but every day they wake up and CHOOSE good, vs Nicky being more of a direct-interventionist classical Catholic, where God has His hands in all thing, where there’s a PLAN even if you can’t see it (because you’re in it…!) and although of course they have to Do Good (no “salvation by faith alone,” not for a Catholic, you must Do Good Works as well), they were PLACED here to do good, and THAT is where the moral obligation comes in, because they were  chosen FOR this, they are not CHOOSING this, and so this responsibility has been placed on their heads and now it is a matter of living up to it. 

And so tHEN you could see how this has entirely different implications in how they approach relationships and love. If their romance was fated then its something Nicky thinks he has to… prove himself worthy of, he has to APPRECIATE this GIFT he’s been given, whereas for Joe if their romance is their CHOICE it is something that he must reaffirm every day, because HE chooses this. And neither one is better or romantic than the other, it’s coming to the same output (expressing their love for each other daily, appreciating each other daily), but they start from opposite ends of the field.

BOTH METAPHORICALLY AND LITERALLY??? THEY START AT OPPOSITE ENDS OF THE FIELD BUT THEN END UP IN THE SAME PLACE, TOGETHER.

not to mention, after 900 years you know where each other stand, so I love this idea that they’ve HAD these debates for 100s of years, they know where each other stands, and its at the point where they just reference it or tease each other in little moments “i believe this” (heavy emphasis on “i”, staring at joe with a little smile, because he KNOWS this is an old argument, something that they differ on, and joe winks back because he KNOWS this is what nicky thinks, because he KNOWS that NICKY knows what HE thinks and its the opposite and he’s TEASING joe about it, and so wink). THat’s verrryyyyy really and cute for me, because I have friends I’ve only know for 5 or 7 years or whatever and we’re already at that point, we’ve argued our differences to death, and now it’s just a joke, it’s an aside (I was playing D&D w my bud who both colleague and friend of mine, and I said something in-character that was like utilitarian and immediately he was like “oh REALLY” and i was like YEAH YEAH because i’m a virtue ethicist and HE’S a utilitarian IRL, so he had to give me shit over it) and it’s REAL AND CUTE AND I LOVE IT.

WAIT ONE LAST THING:

Joe is comfortable with uncertainty and Nicky is not Joe is perfectly fine and happy with an answer of “I don’t know” in response to Nile’s “why do we dream of each other and then they stop when we meet???” BUT BUT BUT that’s not what Nile needed to hear in that moment which is why joe hesitates and Nicky cuts in, because Nicky needs certainty (in the form of faith) and Nile (cross on her breast, just like Nicky, you had to know they clocked that) needs that answer, so Nicky is the one who answers her that there is a reason, that there’s a higher purpose, because Nicky needs that answer too

ONE MORE ONE MORE THING:

AND THIS CANONICALLY AND HISTORICALLY MAKES FUCKING SENSE bc the Arabic scholars were the ones sitting on the entire trove of Socratic/Platonic/Aristotlean/etc scholarship at the time, and Socrates’ ENTIRE DICTUM IS CENTERED AROUND THE “I DON’T KNOW”, (he was the wisest man in athens not because of what he knew but because he didn’t PRESUME to know what he did not), WHEREAS the theology that Nicky would’ve been exposed to would have been heavily neo-platonist which is MUCH more greater plan/everything is caused by the Form of the Good (God) and thus there is an answer and (mathematical, almost!) order to the universe.

To tie this into the time in the movie where Keane kills Nicky and Joe being so obviously afraid Nicky isn’t coming back - for Joe, nothing is fated. It’s always possible that Nicky could die. For Nicky, there’s nothing to be afraid of because he and Joe were made together and they’ll be unmade together. It’s a simple fact, as simple as ‘the sun is going to come up tomorrow, this is how the world is made’. He has complete faith in it. Joe is more determined that he has to keep Nicky (and himself) safe and that it is by his actions and minimizing risk and eliminating threats that they’ll have time together.

Okay okay okay this is all incredibly good shit. Tagging @oldguardhc and @tog-resources because somebody’s gotta archive this stuff

Art for @kiaya​‘s TOG Big Bang 2021 AU - Tender Loving Care (AO3) 💖
Art below the cut and HERE on AO3

Nicky is a burned out doctor who needs a vacation. Lucky for him, his friend Nile asks him to pet/housesit while she is on her honeymoon. Surely it can’t be that hard to look after a dog and a cat? But when things go hilariously wrong, Nicky calls the number left by Nile for any emergencies and Dr. Yusuf al-Kaysani picks up the phone. But maybe this veterinarian can help more than just the pets? A modern romance with cuddly animals and love at first sight!

Making art for this story was scary (my first BB!) but exciting and I still can’t believe I actually made it.
Thank you, @kiaya​​, for being super patient and absolutely wonderful to work with. Go read her story, it’s amazing.

Keep reading
