    Summary

    For the DGHDA Big Bang 2018.

    When a god disappears from an intergalactic church leaving behind swathes of followers with no choice but to face reality for a change, its has all the appearances of one of those bizarre and unique mysteries for the ages.

    It would be amiss to think that it has anything do with a small child experiencing the terror of their entire planet being engulfed.

    It would be awry to think that it has any link with Tina Tevetino waking up in a motel pool with years of past memories wiped.

    And it would be askew of anyone to connect it with Detective Farah Black and Not-Detective Todd Brotzman, the former solving a crime-a-day and the latter in the midst of child rearing.

    But "amiss" "awry" and "askew" are not words in Dirk Gently's dictionary. He spilt a banana flavoured milkshake over the "A" section quite a few years ago.

    This work is canon-compliant as per the end of Season 2. It refers to canon set out in the two Dirk Gently novels and the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy series, but no knowledge of either is required to understand the work.

    Summary

    Todd’s focal point slid slightly to the left. To a pair of blue eyes, crinkled at the edges in a smile. A wash of pale skin, dotted with perfect freckles. A bright outfit that clung just right to the person who wore it. With that thought, an intense rush of adrenaline shot through Todd’s system, and his eyes flew open.

    Holy shit.

    He would rather have been kissing Dirk.

    Season 2 AU that’s not exactly an AU.

    While on the run with Farah, Todd realizes he has feelings for Dirk. Meanwhile, Dirk is in Blackwing, thinking about Todd every waking minute. Once reunited, they begin to act on their feelings. Cue season-long butterfly effect.

    All those Brotzly moments you hoped were romantic? Now they are, and then some. All your favorite scenes? They might be included. They might be expanded upon. They might be a bit different. Or they might be wiped out of existence and replaced with something new. You'll have to read to find out.

    Features all your faves being lovable losers, as usual.

    Summary

    Truly, Dirk had been wholly prepared to avoid death until he was on a hospital bed at age ninety and it was the only logical place for the universe to guide him next. That sounded like a rather nice option; the almost pleasant sort of conclusion everyone silently prayed they would get.

    Fate, it seemed, had other plans for him.

    Dying for someone else was different than ordinary dying. It was meaningful – a necessity even, if the person threatened was worth enough to you.

    And no one in the world meant more to Dirk Gently than Todd Brotzman.

    --

    Dirk is a magnet for dangerous activity; this has always been the sad, unfortunate truth of his universe-controlled life. As a result, he must always be prepared for the bizarre, and often life-threatening situations that actively await him day in and out. What he never prepared for, however, is the sudden arrival of a group led by an Ex-Blackwing employee seeking to lure him in using any means necessary. In order to save what he holds most dear, Dirk must be willing to sacrifice everything. Thus, leaving Todd to deal with the bitter aftermath, and once more desperately search for a way to fix everything.

    Summary

    Todd arrives for his third year at Hogwarts. Amanda arrives for her first. The affectionately, and reluctantly, named “Gryffindor Squad”, comprised of Farah Black, Tina Teventino, Sherlock Hobbs and Todd Brotzman himself, mean to make their mark on Hogwarts. That's a lie, they mostly just want to pass their classes and not get expelled, but that's not how good stories work.

    Dirk Gently is entirely the strangest boy he's ever met, but Todd's strangely okay with this. Todd is very punk rock and doesn't have feelings for cute Hufflepuffs. This is another lie.

    Summary

    Dirk is sick, and this case is not helping. With a Romanian client, killer frogs, and visitors from far, FAR away (space), the detective has a right to be stressed. Todd and Farah are trying to help, but what can you do against the will of the universe itself? And the universe seems pretty determined to bring up as much of the past as possible, especially the stuff Dirk has worked hard to forget.

    Summary

    It’s a rare, quiet morning at the Agency, and Farah is enjoying it immensely when the door opens and in come two of the Rowdy 3. The others, including their van, have disappeared in a flash of blue light and now Gripps and Cross are turning to the only holistic detective they know to help find their family and bring them back.

    Meanwhile, it seems like the whole area has gone Area 51, because there’s strange lights in the sky, lightbulbs that won’t stop flickering, mysterious disappearances, and a sudden resurgence of crop circles. Tina & Hobbs investigate a missing cow while communicating with the Agency through Snapchat, Friedkin is up to something, Assistent is an alien conspiracist and he’s been talking to some ex-cop about soul-swapping..?

    Summary

    Todd’s heart stops. Or it feels like it does because… that’s a voice. That’s a human voice. That’s a human voice that he must have been hallucinating. He’s been driving too long, drunk too much coffee, didn’t get enough sleep last night he’s just-

    “Bloody hell, it’s dark in here.”

    Nope. Todd scrambles to open the car door and flings himself away from the vehicle, stumbling backwards until he lands on his ass, staring at the car with wide eyes and struggling to catch his breath past the sheer terror that’s overcome him all of a sudden.

    This isn’t happening.
    ***

    Todd knows the work he does isn't the most morally sound, being a delivery guy for a local gang was never going to to be, but the job is good, the pay is better, and no matter how temporary it was supposed to be when he started he has no intention of stopping now.

    Then a strange man with an even stranger name wakes up in the trunk of his car, and everything goes to shit.

    Summary

    Young Svlad Cjelli would say he was entirely comfortable with things never making sense. That was the way the world was for him always. But ghosts, vampires and murderous little girls may be a little bit overkill.

    Summary

    He stumbles further, grasping at the ragged remains of his throat, more blood splattering over his hand and onto the floor. Mr Priest slips. Mr Priest falls. And goes still.

    The blood does not stop coming out of his throat. It spreads out below his head like a repulsive, brackish halo. Dirk does not stop screaming.

    Bart continues to stare at the body. Then she falls to her knees and vomits on the floorboards.

    Summary

    When a prospective client turns up at the Agency with the front half of a perfectly happy Siamese cat, matters have to be taken into Dirk and Todd’s entirely (in)capable hands. Over a thousand miles away, in a dusty town in New Mexico, a woman has disappeared without a trace, and the residents live in fear of falling prey to a monstrous witch who haunts their desert home. But nothing here is quite what it seems.

    Summary

    After Wendimoor, everyone returned to their lives, lulled into a false sense of security. They weren't expecting Blackwing to take one of their own. Their only hope of getting their friend back is to join forces, along with a little bit of help from some unexpected sources...

    Summary

    "No," Dirk answered, "I mean that boy-child is Todd. Brotzman. Not just some random child we picked up off the street and decided to adopt.” Dirk paused.” Or steal.”


    When Todd gets turned into a child, it's up to Farah and Dirk to take care of him. Kid-Todd isn't what they were expecting, though. He's talkative, happy, and expressive- exactly like a child should be. It's disconcerting to see the difference, until they figure out just why Todd is the way he is.

    Summary

    Dirk's always kept his wings hidden. Or at least, he has ever since the first time Blackwing captured him. And nothing's going to change that. Not even a gunshot wound.

    Summary

    "He knew that the Rowdy 3 were vampires. He knew that his sister was a witch, and Mona was a shapeshifter, and Dirk was… whatever he was, but it would take a lot more than a festering dog bite and an incident every full moon for the next three months to convince Todd that he was a werewolf."

    Todd's first instinct when confronted with a problem is to lie, this helps absolutely no one and only creates more problems and yet he doesn't learn.

    Summary

    “Oh, my name is Dirk Gently.” He smiled again raising a hand. It was a normal smile until out of nowhere something else appeared there and oh God, were those fangs? “I’m a vampire.”

    Summary

    Dirk hurts himself sometimes. Not in a major way, just enough to calm himself to the point his head doesn't feel like it's about to explode and his heart doesn't feel like it's beating out of his chest. Todd notices. Kind of. TW: Self-harm.
