    Summary

    For a criminal, Todd’s stowaway sure didn’t look like a stowaway.

    He was well dressed and well composed; wealthy-looking even. His hair was unruffled even after the struggle—almost like it was carved out of wood—and his shoes were clearly a very expensive pair, or at least an approximation of one.

    He wore a beige double breasted jacket and pants. The only thing that seemed to be out of place was a stiff, bright yellow leather cape draped around his shoulders. Todd had never seen an accessory like it before.

    Todd didn’t take an eye off him for even a second as he pulled the transpo out of the docking bay of the cargo ship and away from the trading city of Wyvern, watching his passenger for even the smallest sign or movement that might indicate the man would be waking up anytime soon.

    Summary

    '“Look. You’re dead. Get over it quickly, because you’re going to have to get used it it.”

    'Holy shit', he thinks, completely speechless in the face of the woman, 'she’s absolutely insane'. He inches slightly away, half in his mind to just lie back down on the dusty ground. This had to be a dream. No one can be that crazy, right? 'She thinks this is the afterlife'.'

    Todd wakes up, memory-less, on a dusty road, in front of a woman with a gun.

    Summary

    Formerly "Never Let You Go"

    It seemed that the universe was finally rewarding them, taking a break from the hectic mess that their lives had become, only to rip it out of their hands. Blackwing is back with a vengeance it no longer cares to hold back, not even for those innocently swept up in the wake of one Prjoect Icarus. 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

    Todd is, at first, insulted that Farah and Amanda feel the need to tell him to "look after Dirk". Honestly, though, they're not wrong. Todd is a shit excuse for a human being, much less friend. But Dirk is going to have to work through Blackwing and the last two cases at some point, and Todd is going to help him. Or at least, help him ignore it long enough. Best Friends are supposed to do that.

    Summary

    When Dirk decides it's time for he and Todd to take the natural Next Step in their relationship, he dives headfirst into the project, eagerly anticipating the "opportune moment" for him to pop the question. However, true to form, he finds himself facing a number of...speedbumps the Universe tosses him along the way.

    (alternatively; 3 times Dirk attempts to propose and fails spectacularly, and one (1) time he doesn't. based off of this post.)

    Summary

    "“What?! Who?! Where?!” The englishman bolted upright out of bed, his normally impeccable brown hair spiked and mussed all around. It seriously looked like Dirk Gently had had epic sex last night, but Todd knew better. Dirk was a fitful sleeper, which is why he had woken Todd up in the middle of the night."

    Summary

    "Sitting on the still beat-up couch from the aftermath of the Rowdy 3 attack, Todd Brotzman held his head in his hands looking and feeling as hopeless as he did that fateful day when his car was vandalized, he saw himself, lost his job, and met the man he missed the most."

    |A one-shot taking place after the events of "Two Sane Guys Doing Normal Things" reflecting on the Todd's fears about his pararibulitis and having had the two people that matter most taken from him.|

    Summary

    “Well. We do for our own.” He grunted again, and put out the stub of his smoke on the end of the seat. The acrid smell of burned plastic wafted across them for a moment, but it hardly registered.

    “I’m one of your own?” Amanda’s heart fluttered.

    Martin nodded. He didn’t look at her. “F’r as long as you wanna be, drummer girl.”

    Summary

    It becomes overwhelmingly apparent, in an underwhelmingly short amount of time, that there are a number of things about Todd Brotzman that Dirk finds himself somewhat… fascinated by.
    ...however, there's one “Todd Related Phenomenon” that continues to hold his attention and pique his interest, above almost all others.
    This happens to be the curious case of Todd’s (various) blushes.
    (or; Dirk's fascination with Todd's various blushes quickly develops into an obsession as he categorizes each reaction with meticulous specification. 5 times Dirk watches Todd blush, (+1 time Todd does the same)

    Summary

    It occurs to Todd – as Dirk hastily closes the door behind them and shoves his face up against the crack in an ineffectual attempt to see through to the corridor beyond – that, compared to how some of their other cases have gone, “hiding in a closet” was one of the better possible outcomes of this investigation. Of course, the universe being what it is, it only takes about three and a half minutes for him to drastically change his mind.

    Not every pararibulitus attack is painful. But it's still not great to get one when you're trapped in a broom closet with your best friend.
