    Summary

    ”Y’know, make it up. Pretend to be in a relationship with someone. Can’t be that hard to fake, right?” it was still a stupid idea, but Todd was actually pretty invested in it now. He leaned forward, folding his arms. “C’mon, think about it- you got any other desperate homeless friends?”

    Yellow sat up fully, glancing between Todd and the paper. The storm clouds parted, and the sunniest smile Todd had ever seen broke across his face. “Well, now that you mention it, one fellow does spring to mind…”

    Todd meets Dirk when both are homeless and stuck in a rut- Todd fresh out of the band, Dirk fresh out of England- and find the perfect apartment. The catch? It’s professional couple only. Dirk proposes a ruse, and Todd’s too desperate to be picky. With the help of their friends- Farah, Todd’s trigger-happy ex-crush from college; Bart, Dirk’s terrifying ex-bodyguard from boarding school; Ken, the mysterious computer guy downstairs- they must keep their landlady Amanda Mandelbrot believing the lie, and learn to navigate the wonderful world of being ‘independent adults’.

    What could go wrong?

    Summary

    A collection of as many Brotzly/Kurlish/Faranda prompt fills I can do because I have lots of writers block to work through and short stories are a yes. Gonna be a mix of fluff, angst, humour, and probably more heavily weighted towards Brotzly because that's mah jam <3

    Summary

    He had a bracelet around his wrist, that Amanda had tied there when they were older than kids, but younger than they were now. He had an earring in one ear, something he never pictured himself with. It was small and shiny and served multiple purposes and god, why was blood so warm? It should be cold, death was cold, why couldn’t blood be cold? There was a gun to his forehead, and he held his arms out on both sides and tried to make himself as best a shield he could.
    -
    Dirk Gently, minus the sci-fi elements. A lot of assassins and agents and CIA-ish stuff. I thought it would be fun to do something where the government was the main evil, and it turned into this.

    Summary

    Formerly "Never Let You Go"

Farah and Todd do their best to muster up an escape plan, while Amanda and Vogel attempt a rescue mission with eventual help from Bart and Ken. Dirk just tries to get through every new experiment, hoping against hope that anyone is coming for him ... although it would be nice if that someone was a certain assisfriend ...

    Summary

    "We got tuned into each other's radio stations. Let's say that. I got to walk through life ending others and she got the patterns. But it's not all right. Sometimes we're muddled. I'm never sure if I'm doing the right thing. "

    Summary

    He asks if Dirk can hear it and Dirk just laughs, the sound reassuringly human.

    Well, not reassuringly. Reassuringly would mean Todd had to be reassured.

    It’s just – it sounds human. Which is good. Because Dirk is human. Definitely.

    Summary

    Bart didn’t often think about the past. It all got hazy pretty quick between the constant deaths and whatever those science people had tried to do to her when she was trapped. They were most all dead now, none of her concern.
    The future didn’t worry her either. The universe carried her, like a leaf on the wind, to exactly wherever she needed to be and exactly whoever needed to die.
    Nah. All that mattered was the present, and whatever was nearest.
    A gun.
    A snack.
    A car.
    A machete.
    And then the universe brought her Ken.

    Summary

    Some people like to divide time neatly into past, present and future. But when you have time-traveled on at least two non-consecutive occasions, such distinctions might begin to blur; and when your past crashes uninvited into your present, just as you set out for your future, they just don’t apply anymore.

    Summary

    'Ken stared at her, Hercules halfway to the disc drive. “...Bart, have you ever seen… a movie? Any movie?”

    “I saw those ones. On TV, that time I got stabbed and the universe broke.”

    “Those were sitcoms and commercials, they weren’t movies.”

    “Oh,” she shrugged again. “Okay, no, I guess I ain’t never seen a movie.”

    Ken had to take a moment to process that. He took a deep breath, putting the disc in the drive. “Disney first,” he said under his breath, closing the lid. “One thing at a time.”'

    Bart and Ken have a cosy night in with Disney movies- needless to say, things get emotional. Or as emotional as you can ever get with Bart.

    Summary

    During the showdown at the Spring mansion, people were a bit too preoccupied to analyze the appearance of their frizzy haired, murderous cavalry and her hacker companion. Still fewer stopped to appreciate her snazzy bow tie and jaunty hat.

    Summary

    She’s made it exceptionally clear that despite what he was beginning to think they are not friends, and he’s kidding himself if he doesn’t think that Bart will kill him the moment she grows tired of his presence.
