    Summary

    "Mona!" Dirk says. "What have we said about sneaking up on people in the form of inanimate objects?"

    "It's bad manners," she says, "and may result in invasion of privacy, or untimely cardiac arrest."

    "Yes," he says, "good, thank you."

    Summary

    Even from a young age, he isn’t a romantic. It’s around third grade that kids start writing to their Match, eight year olds asking questions about their name, where they’re from, what they like, who they are. Todd doesn’t. He’s not really into the idea of Matches, even if it’s something he can’t change. People fall in love with people. If he falls in love, he’s not going to fall in love with someone who he knows only from ink on his arms that he didn’t put there.

    Whoever his Match is, however, does not feel the same way. His left arm (so he must be right handed) is covered with doodles. Crude flowers drawn with what looks like ballpoint pens, so lots of skipping and gaps in the lines. Sometimes the outlines of hearts that look like fountain pens, but are smudged quickly, the ink running too hard.

    Soulmate AU where anything you write on your arm appears visible on your soulmate's. Written for the Dirk Gently Big Bang 2017.

    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

    For a not-quite psychic, Dirk is surprisingly dense.

    Aka, the one where Dirk asks Todd out on a date. Kind of. Sort of. Possibly. There are two of them, anyway, and they're going somewhere, together, alone, and also Todd apparently has an ex-boyfriend so the odds are definitely in Dirk's favor. Maybe.
