    Summary

    For the DGHDA Big Bang 2017.

    “...Very long story short, until yesterday, it hailed as my greatest case: one of deception, danger, double-crosses, and an all-round perversion of high emotion and - dare I say it - romance…”

    What do horses, robots, time-travel, false identities, alternate universes, flagrant homosexuality and the University of Cambridge have in common? Probably not much, but it's all Todd Brotzman has to work with after he falls through a hole in space and time, arriving at St. Cedd’s College for the first day of Svlad Cjelli (not yet notoriously known as Dirk Gently). There's a case to be solved, but it refuses to start. For both Todd and Svlad, and Dirk and Farah, events unfold in exactly the way you'd expect at Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency.

    (This work is canon-compliant as per the end of Season 1. It refers to canon set out in the two Dirk Gently novels, the Dirk Gently 2010 TV Series, the Dirk Gently Comics "The Salmon of Doubt" and the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy series, but none of that is needed to understand the work.)

    Summary

    Dirk Gently (as he's taken to calling himself) has spent most of his life in Blackwing custody. In that time absolutely nothing of any interest has happened. Instead, a good deal of not-very-good or possibly even very-bad things have happened. These mostly involved a number of people in white coats poking and prodding him while making him guess at numbers. Outside of these unwanted visitors, the vast majority of Dirk's time is spent alone. And then one day a technician leads Dirk into a room where a boy around his age sits behind a table, looking sullen and perhaps a little nervous. Dirk likes him immediately.

    Alternate Meeting AU, in which 21 year old Dirk meets 20 year old Todd while still in Blackwing custody.

    Summary

    Todd is fifteen, and he is smoking his first cigarette. It’s awful, and he’s been hacking up the acrid smoke from his lungs for the past three minutes, but he’s smoked it nonetheless. The burning throat is unpleasant, but the feeling of rebellion swirling in his stomach makes it all worthwhile.

    Svlad is fifteen, and he’s tired. He no longer cries himself to sleep at night. He is no longer sad, or scared. He’s just flat-out tired.

    Summary

    “Your mum, she looks so in love,” he murmurs, awestruck.

    “Well, yeah,” Todd shrugs. “I guess most new parents are. I’m sure your mom was the same.”

    “I don’t have pictures of my mother.” Dirk is quiet. “She died when I was three, I believe. I don’t remember her at all.”

    Dirk likes looking at Todd's family photo album.
