    Summary

    “I beg your pardon, sir?”

    “A magician,” Rear Admiral Pellew said again, no less firmly than before, his intellectual brow beetled with concern which, Hornblower felt, was not all due to the muddled state of his favored subordinate. “He will join you on board Lydia for your foray into the Adriatic, Captain.”

    Summary

    Peter and Abdul find the time for a heart-to-heart about dating the demimonde. Finding said time while trapped underneath a bombed-out section of UCH with a broken leg and a head wound between them isn't ideal, of course, but needs must.

    Summary

    Abdul Walid had long ago accepted that he had adopted Thomas Nightingale to look after, what he hadn't really noticed was that somewhere along the way, Thomas had adopted him. The realisation starts gradually, then comes all at once.

    Summary

    With the millennium coming on, Thomas puts up with Abdul's incomprehensible need to commune with nature on the Shetland Islands at midsummer - family dinners, footballs, and a visit from some voyeuristic fae ensue.

    Summary

    Thomas had walked in many a dream besides his own. He was never sure what to expect from Abdul's - certainly not an encounter in an alleyway behind a club blasting Chumbawumba (whatever that was).

    Summary

    Fatherhood had rather crept up on the both of them – if you could even call it that. The selkie and police officers in question might have had something to say about the idea of them being ‘parented,’ after all.

    Summary

    "I've suddenly decided I don't want to," I announced.

    The black waters of Loch Nell were keeping remarkably mum about my reticence as I stared down at them from the edge of the dock. The very deep, very dark, extremely perhaps life-threateningly cold waters of Loch Nell, as my brain saw fit to add. In December. In northern Scotland. Because maybe monsters.

    Summary

    In 2012, the future seems bright. In 1988 it wasn't, necessarily. Abdul mourns for the dead, and celebrates the living.

    Also known as the time when Nightingale proposed in a graveyard (sort of) and Peter lost his shit.

    Summary

    The first thing Abdul Walid did upon feeling Thomas Nightingale’s broken neck under his hands was turn to the paramedic at his elbow and declare time of death. The second thing he did was leave for the Folly.

    [Contains a technical spoiler for The Hanging Tree.]

    Summary

    Abdul had thought rather a lot in the hours since Thomas found him at what was left of his house about initiative, and bravery, and how to demonstrate love and trust in the most obvious and unmistakable of ways. And this, he thought – he hoped – this turning into Thomas while still half-asleep, with his body stirring into his warmth and making itself very clear that it was up for continuing from where they had left off before Abdul had had to sleep off the effects of being put through a fair bit of masonry – this, he hoped, was a good enough first step in proving all he felt.

    Summary

    Summary

    “Don’t let any of them vomit on you. It’s your bloody birthday.”

    “Noted,” Abdul smiled, looking young and intelligent and alive and everything Thomas found he was starting to want. “Good night, Thomas.”

    Summary

    Abdul Walid learned everything he knew about PTSD – which was quite a lot – from taking care of Thomas Nightingale (who still insisted on saying ‘shell shock’ or ‘combat stress fatigue’ instead, but that was a battle for another day). Still, he had to admit that being sucked into a dream full of snow and blood and possibly-werewolves was a step right into the unknown.

    Summary

    Abdul Haqq Walid moved to London in August of 1980, alone but for a suitcase and a sense of optimism that the South, at least, would be warm-ish. Among the things he left behind - with varying levels of regret - were his family, the Kirk, three years of a bewilderingly fascinating and demanding medical degree, daily drinking, an earring, and a faintly distressing number of denim jackets festooned with proof of his adoration of the Clash, the Blockheads, and the Nips. From a distance, a sane adult observer would probably think that he and his cohort were all destined for burnout.

    And then he met a wizard, and decided he wouldn’t leave for all the world.

    2 - In which an encounter with a goblin convinces Abdul not to waste any more time.
    3 - In which Thomas is shot, Abdul pulls receipts, and Peter kicks himself for being a blind idiot.

    Summary

    When an intern turns up dead at the Imperial War Museum under mysterious circumstances, PC Peter Grant and Inspector Thomas Nightingale find themselves on the case.

    At first it seems like a straightforward enough matter, but things just aren’t adding up. The museum’s curator is acting oddly, and Nightingale’s past may be catching up to him quicker than he can outrun it...
