Nick/Urs Christmas Ficlet for Me by Hearts-Blood  
In December, hearts_blood offered "Kiss-Fic."  I requested "Forever Knight, Nick/Urs, the twelve days of Christmas, '95-'96."

Late last week, she treated me to an untitled ficlet (G, ~600 words) in reply.  "He let Urs sleep in his loft sometimes, when she got tired of the Raven."  I think I may be the only Les Miserables (i.e. Nick/Urs) partisan, so I am triply gladdened when generous people not only write FK, and for me, but with my favorite rare pairing!*  I am tickled by her tucked-in answer to how Urs, in "Ashes to Ashes," has Nick's door code.

(She also wrote a Nick/Natalie ficlet (G, ~300 words) for MysticalCat7.)

* Have you read Leela's spectacular Nick/Urs "Theory of Lost Things" (PG, ~3K words)? Go! Do! ♥

This was the first time I've written Nick/Urs, and it was very interesting! I'd write more for them. :)

And thank you for the link to Leela's story! I'd missed that one up til now, somehow.

more Nick/Urs
You're very welcome for the link to Leela's "Theory of Lost Things"! I think it may suit me better than any romance story in the fandom, not only for taking up this rare pairing, but for so carefully and respectfully slipping free from canon, opening up the possibility of a better future than canon bestowed. (Also: the historical flashbacks subtly free Fleur in the same way, if you know who's related to whom in the real family of the Dukes of Brabant. ~grin~)

I'm always happy to get to see you write FK! More Nick/Urs would be a special treat, but all the characters are good. :-)

I'm glad you got a little more Nick/Urs stories to read. I've read the few that are out there, and I don't mind the pairing, either. It makes sense that they could possibly like each other since they have a lot in common. =)

Anyway, thanks for pointing out these new fics!

You're welcome for the links to the ficlets!

Granted that Urs is "weak tea" in canon storytelling beside Janette, I agree that Nick and Urs do have much in common with each other that they don't with their peers: music, consciences, "father" issues, choice issues... I think that they have the potential, in a good writer's hands, to bring out the best or the worst in each other, either filling in the other's weaknesses and inspiring the other's strengths (or, in a tragedy, exacerbating each other's weaknesses and blocking each other's strengths).
