    Summary

    “I don’t know why I bother,” Farah offered, hoping Todd would join her in self-deprecation.

    “I’m starting to ask myself the same question,” he said slowly, flashing her a lopsided grin.

    Starting?” Dirk scoffed, punching Todd in the arm. “It’s about two months too late for that, and you sampled the goods. No take-backsies.”

    [Not related to my other fic 'verse—except that character backstories are the same, and that incidental details turn up in different configurations.]

    Summary

    “While I’m not entirely down with the Grease reference, I appreciate the sentiment,” Dirk told Amanda. He tilted his chin up against Todd’s shoulder, looking Todd in the eye as best he could from such an awkward angle. “I’ve cracked what’s happening case-wise.”

    “You mean not happening case-wise?” Todd asked, worming his hand behind Dirk so he could put his arm around him. “None of these leads are viable. Even the realtor’s pest-control thing was a first-three-months standard courtesy. I checked with other clients of theirs.”

    “We’re trying too hard,” Dirk said. “We had two major cases come so fast and furious that we’re expecting the next one to behave the same way. What if it doesn’t? What if the most pressing concern is the one we’ve stumbled into by accident, but nonetheless agreed upon unanimously?”

    “I didn’t agree to you nerds putting a ring on it,” said Amanda, but in jest. “I have concerns.”

    “Yeah, well,” said Todd, sticking the correct earbud in his left ear, “unanimous means two.”

    *
    ...or: Todd gets no fewer than four different versions of one shovel talk, and he's fucking sick of it.

    Summary

    Dirk couldn’t stand to see Todd this way any more than Todd could stand the reverse. He drew the neglected handkerchief from inside his coat and used it to dab at Todd’s cheeks.

    “Wendimoor very much happened,” he said, “and for quite a lot of necessary reasons.”

    Todd cracked a smile and almost laughed. “Like setting solid relationship role-models for us?”

    Dirk nodded, realizing he hadn’t even thought of that. “If they can weather a war, so can we.”

    “Panto’s and Silas’s parents will do a better job of communicating post-clusterfuck than mine.”

    “Count your blessings,” Dirk said, tucking the handkerchief in Todd’s pocket. “Mine are gone.”

    “Wait a minute,” Todd said, pulling Dirk in by the shoulders, wide-eyed. “Your parents are?”

    Summary

    Dirk pushed past [Farah], taking the remaining stairs two at a time. He opened the front door and stepped onto the porch, only to halt in his tracks at the sight of a familiar van.

    Amanda stood with her elbow propped on the mailbox, leisurely smoking. She saluted him.

    “Hey, so,” she said, taking a final drag before pitching the joint, “congrats on accomplishing what every horny, stoned groupie between here and Chicago used to dream of.”

    Summary

    "Hi Amanda! It's me, Dirk, although I suppose you already know that because you have my number and-- You know what, doesn't matter.

    "I know you're probably wondering why I'm calling you, and to be honest I'm sort of not sure, because I don't think this'll work. But it's always best to just try something and find out rather than worrying about it in my opinion, so here goes. It's about Todd. Don't put the phone down, please."

    Summary

    These two things belong on two very different lists. Arrows on Things He Very Much Dislikes, and Amanda goes on Very Favorite People. Though perhaps not Very Most Top Favorite Person. There was only one person on that list. And he hated him.

    Summary

    Dirk would never pass up an opportunity to partake in a traditional friendship bonding exercise. Even if he has absolutely no idea how hair works.

    Summary

    The thing sweeps its scythe and straightens. It must sense eyes on it, because it turns it’s head and looks right at Svlad.
    It is a skull’s face, grinning and bleached. Svlad stares.
    It tilts it’s head, like it’s watching a particularly fascinating documentary, or a cat attempting to catch a laser pointer created dot.
    AH, it says. It’s mouth doesn’t move, but Svlad hears it’s voice all the same, resonating deep and forever. INTERESTING.
