    Summary

    Dirk was not a coward.

    He really wasn’t, despite the way others tended to mock and harass him, instinctively realising he wouldn’t retaliate. It was true he didn’t react well to violence and aggression, but avoiding potential harm hardly made him craven, especially when it so regularly sought him out. And hiding crouched inside a wardrobe with his arms over his head and his eyes firmly squeezed shut definitely didn’t make him cowardly. Especially when faced with one of the most psychotic alphas he’d ever met.

    “Come on out Icarus,” Priest cooed, his tone soft and terrifyingly menacing.

    He was too close. Far too close.

    There was absolutely no way Dirk would voluntarily go to Priest, even if it meant the agent might show him some small measure of leniency. Nope, he was just going to stay exactly where he was, huddled in a silent ball of misery and, rather heroically in his opinion, not break into hysterical sobs of terror.

    Because hello, not a coward.

    Summary

    "This is the moment. This, right here and now, is the moment that Todd’s life changes. He expects fanfare for something so monumental. Perhaps a crack of thunder, or a sudden shift in visual perception allowing him to see colors more vibrantly. He expects to feel different, joyous, full of wonder and awe at such an important moment. Todd expects...well, something, anyway.
    He gets nothing.
    Well, nothing except befuddlement and a sudden, gnawing urge to turn around and walk in any direction other than the one he’s currently headed in."

    Todd Brotzman: Fallen-angel-turned-demon who really isn't into this whole "demon" thing
    Dirk Gently: Holistic Angel who "tripped" and needs the help of his brand new assis-demon to get back up to Heaven

    Basically, Dirk and Todd are the same characters we know and love but they meet in a different way and exist within the angel/demon universe. Mannerisms and personalities are as much Canon as we are able to portray! Hope you like it!

    Update 4/11/18: for now, we are calling it complete. We may add to it in the future, we will see! Thanks for being so supportive and for reading/sharing/commenting!!

    Summary

    A sequel to ‘Farah’s Guide to Keeping Todd and Dirk Alive, Healthy and Functioning with Arguable Efficiency’

    1.
    Apologize to Dirk for running off and leaving him alone, so that I could search for Amanda, when we first arrived in Wendimoor. He was clearly having a breakdown and I should have been there for him.

    I need to remember that Amanda isn’t the only one who needs me. In fact, Dirk probably needs me more. How is he even still alive? He has the survival instincts of a suicidal dodo. I have total faith that he can solve any mystery if he tries hard enough but I don’t trust the universe to keep him safe.

    While I’m at it, I should also say sorry for calling him a monster back on our first case together. I never really apologised for that one either. God, Dirk deserved a much a better first friend than me. The universe is a dick to him.

    2.
    Be there for Dirk when we all have the necessary conversation about Blackwing. Farah knows the questions that need asking better than I do but Dirk is going to need moral support.

    Summary

    An ongoing list that Farah starts on how to stop Dirk and Todd getting themselves killed.

    1.
    Talk to Dirk about Blackwing. Both Todd and I need to learn everything we can about it so that we can be better prepared if they strike again. Since this will be a difficult conversation, I’ll bring chocolate and Dirk’s squeaky stress toy to help try and keep him calm.

    2.
    From now on, I’m going to assume that any stress toy I hand to Dirk is probably Mona. Mona also doesn’t like talking about Blackwing so, holistic actor or not, she’s not great at helping Dirk stay calm when discussing it.

    Summary

    Dirk keeps staring at his feet, the tips of his ears turning a silly shade of pink. He’s well aware of how pink they are, thankyouverymuch, and yes, he hates it. Don’t bring it up again.

    Summary

    He didn't mean to go here a sleezy bar filled with 30 something year old creeps and some questionable females. He only meant to help his friend Farah but instead of being moral support he was now third wheeling her makeout fest with a girl in the corner of the bar he hadn't paid much attention to the notice on the window about the bands playing here nor did he want to until the band came on.

    Fic where Dirk goes with Farah to a sleezy bar and ends up falling for the guitarist who coincidentally is Todd.
    Who finds that the guy in the yellow jacket is both an eye sore and a sight for sore eyes.

    Summary

    The unassuming tourist town of Whitby is decidedly rocked by an unexpected succession of very odd occurrences. Dolphins seem to walk on the beach at night, the water keeps turning purple, and – a murder. The murder of a man who should have been halfway across the world.

    Nobody could possibly string together this case, except, perhaps, for one Dirk Gently, back from America and feeling even more detective-y than normal. Does he know how to maintain friendships or interact like your average human being? Hell no. But he can solve mysteries involving shark cats, time travel, body swapping and Norse gods.

    It ought to be child’s play.

    Summary

    When Dirk and Richard's new client inexplicably fails to stay alive long enough to pay them, their ailing finances mean that a certain amount of subterfuge is required to get them back to London. The sudden death of their client has, however, attracted the attention of another rather more famous (if less holistic) detective and the stage is set for a long distance bus ride of suspense...
