    Summary

    Lister discovers that Rimmer was fired because of him whilst he was in stasis. He's hiding on Earth with Frankenstein and the kittens, and Lister is eager to both pay off his debt to him and find out more about this new smiling relaxed version of the smeghead he thought he knew.

    Summary

    This is just a load of short fics I write in my freetime. They're not linked to each other, just posting them under the same piece.

    If they're not post a specific episode, they're set in an AU where they never lost Red Dwarf in s6 but still met Legion. (s6/s7 most of these are set like that)

    Enjoy!

    Sum of the first Story:

    Rimmer can't take it anymore. Lister keeps playing his smegging guitar at all hours. Even though he can't stand it, somehow, he is given courage to face his demons.

    Summary

    The first time Lister propositioned Rimmer, he was drunk, and the hologram had just returned to Red Dwarf a few weeks prior.

    Then there was the second time, then the third.

    The problem though, was that neither of them would actually talk about what they were doing, the next morning going about their day as though they weren't boning each other on the regular.

    But then, Lister was forced to cut back on drinking, leaving them without the pretense for their sexcapades.

    Summary

    Red Dwarf stumbles upon a massive research station fixed in orbit around a huge interdimensional rift contained by a force field. Inside, a great machine harnesses the power of the rift to open windows into alternate dimensions based on keying in basic search criteria.

    Meanwhile, Lister deals with his continuing existential crisis over his supposed responsibility to single-handedly repopulate the human race.

    And Rimmer meets someone he had no idea existed, in this or any dimension.

    Summary

    Rimmer takes up the Ace mantle.

    He hops from dimension to dimension and it's not easy, nothing ever is for him, but thankfully the Wildfire has a selection of recordings made by previous Aces that guide him through. But at some point he realises that a certain pocket of time and space is dragging up behind him. Undeniably, he can rely on some wise, albeit smug-gitty words left by his counterparts to figure out what's going on.

    And even though everything seems to trace back to a certain someone, certainly there's a rational and coherent explanation for this?

    But, once again, is anything ever this easy for Arnold J. Rimmer?

    -

    In which the group effort to make Rimmer feel loved isn't so successful and Lister decides to take the initiative into his own hands. Takes place at the very ending of Terrorform.
