    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

    ”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

    When Amanda gets diagnosed with pararibulitis, Todd promised that he'd jam with her every sunset.

    When the worst happens, Todd intends to keep his promise. No matter how he feels about a certain holistic detective.

    (Or the one in which Amanda is a ghost, and that changes a lot of things. But not everything, because everything is still connected.)

    Summary

    The case of Lydia Spring had been solved, and Dirk was spending the night at Todd's place. However, when everything is dark and quiet, that is when thoughts run rampant and make even the most distant people feel... connected.

    Summary

    Everything happened at once. The once-dark room became a disorienting haze of flashing light, the noise caught him off guard and he froze, ears ringing.

    And Dirk opened his eyes.

    Which would have been fucking great, if there had been any Dirk left inside them at all.

    Ficlet with multiple-choice ending (to varying degrees of angst), inspired by the new s2 teaser. See notes for chapter-specific warnings.

    Summary

    Dirk picks Todd up for a road trip he never planned to go on, with a red cabriolet and a bright smile and a thousand places to go.
    And although Todd doesn't know what he expected, he definitely gets more than he bargained for.

    Summary

    'In the old days, that definitely would have aroused Todd’s suspicion. Their original baking nights, after all, were infamous for being born of ulterior motives.

    But that was so two years ago.

    “Yeah, sure,” said Todd with an amiable smile. “Sounds fun.”'

    In which Dirk has a very important question to ask, and naturally a baking night is the only sensible place to ask it. Part four in the trilogy of five. Shameless fluff, shmoop and sugary sweetness for Pride month.
