    Summary

    A collection of ficlets tied together by the general theme of Dirk Whump. Generally Post S2 with a lot of reference to Blackwing.

    Expect to see a few themes repeated - sorry I just like some things and can't keep track of where I've used them already...

    Various trigger warnings around the various types of abuse I put Dirk through

    Quite a bit of shameless idea theft (sorry) - from authors including but not limited to the inspirational protecticarus (FKA thewrongplath), flightinflame, scarletkestrel, ToMarsAndBeyond3, electricteatime, Lynds, DontoffendTheBees et al.

    Summary

    “What’s your deal with kids?” said Todd, climbing into bed.

    Dirk looked up from his crossword. “I don’t have a ‘deal with kids,’ ” he said.

    “You definitely do,” said Todd. “You’ve been really weird about it. I never noticed before, you’re always fine if they’re on a case, but if they have to stay here…”

    Dirk took off his glasses and rubbed his forehead. “Can we have this conversation in the morning?” he said.

    Happily married, Todd and Dirk have no plans for any children. But when holistic children start appearing on their doorstep, they find themselves faced with a choice.

    Summary

    Dirk finally has his freedom. Blackwing has collapsed. Priest is dead. The Holistic Detective Agency is open for business, and business is booming. No longer watching over his shoulder, Dirk finally starts to relax, enjoying his newfound life and finally planning for a sure future.

    But he can never escape from his past - not really. When a ghost comes back to haunt him, and the universe threatens to rip apart at the very seams, Dirk has to muster every ounce of courage he has to work with his demons, rather than fight them.

    Summary

    Todd was really hungover and the hotel room was a mess, but he figured last night’s drunken shenanigans were normal drunken shenanigans.

    That is, until he found the marriage license on the desk.

    Summary

    “Okay, it was a lot more complicated than—I mean— we’re not actually even sure it was a murder, though? Dirk says it looks like it could have been an accident. It’s just… very weird.”

    "Is this part of our case? Is this part of another case?" Farah twisted in her chair, fidgeting with her pen in one hand. "Is this going to stop us from taking the other case?”

    Todd huffed a laugh on the other end of the line. “Maybe we’ve finally hit on that ‘something bigger’ you wanted.”

    ----

    Five months after Bergsberg, the Holistic Detective Agency is finding a groove, and Dirk is maybe—just maybe—starting to trust a good thing to last. But a bout of cat-subsidized calm draws to a sharp close when Dirk and Todd find an impossibly-severed head on a rare day off. Unbeknownst to the Agency, the ever-accumulating Rowdy 3, or even the enthusiastic new leadership at Blackwing, a decades-old play for control is poised to ripple across a fractious, fractured, and fractal Universe. Survival will mean holding true to oneself, even in the face of friends and family—whether given, chosen, or fatalistically entwined.

    A longform take on The Season 3 That Never Was; updates weekly.

    Summary

    Here’s the problem:

    (Well. There are a lot of problems - a frankly irresponsible number of problems of the overwhelming type that Todd thought he was done with, now that the whole lying-about-pararibulitis thing is out of the way. But here’s the problem he’s having at the moment:)

    He’s straight.

    Todd has a crisis.

    Summary

    Dirk gets a mysterious message that obviously scares him, but he won't talk about it. His odd behaviour is enough to prompt Todd to bring in the whole team, just in case.

    It's a good thing he did as Dirk's past catches up to him dramatically, and he needs his friends to support him through it.

    Featuring All Of The Characters: Dirk (of course), Todd, Farah, Martin/The Rowdies, Amanda, Mona, Tina, and Hobbs. Protective!Everyone because everyone loves Dirk and wants to keep him safe and warm and no further than 5 metres from a hug at all times. That's just how it is.

    TW: Nothing graphic but contains references to: swearing, domestic abuse, child abuse, Blackwing, emotional/psychological manipulation, panic attacks and mental health issues, PTSD/trauma. Sorry Dirk. You know I love you 😉

    Summary

    Приход письма из Хогвартса для Бротцмана вовсе не был сюрпризом. Распределение на Слизерин также было вполне ожидаемым. Но вот чего Тодд точно не ожидал, так это гиперактивного хаффлплаффца, у которого солнце едва ли не из задницы светит, и своей совершенно глупой влюблённости в него.

     

    ИЛИ: Аманда умнейшая из сиблингов Бротцман. Тодд нелепо влюблен. Дирк хочет проследить за местным привидением, а привидение всего лишь вступает в заговор.

    Summary

    Todd sighed heavily, wondering if the hissing in his ears was the electric kettle, a pararibulitis attack or just a standard Dirk-induced migraine. “Okay, so to sum up: you and I have got to pull together a gift and a party for Farah before tomorrow at, what, six…?”

    “Five.”

    “Incredible.”

     

    In which Dirk and Todd work together to solve a birthday conundrum; and solve another persistent mystery along the way.

    Summary

    I'm so excited to bring y'all my first forray into fic-writing for this fandom. Basically, one night I thought a little bit too hard about Dirk's personal journey and growth in the show, particularly in season 1, and next thing I new I was 20 pages into what began as a case study of season 1. Over time, it evolved into more of a traditional fic, so now we have a retelling of season 1 through the lens of one Dirk Gently. I want to stay somewhat faithful to the show, but some scenes/dialogue have been omitted as my goal is to interrogate Dirk's journey, not the plot of the show (though I don't think anyone was expecting a 1:1 recreation).

    I hope you enjoy, dear reader! [Temporarily on Hiatus due to Art Fight & other Life Events]

    Summary

    “Todd,” says Dirk one morning, apropos of literally nothing, “have you ever been married?”

    Old Todd would have either pretended not to have heard or, alternately, jumped out the window and burned down the building, but Todd has been trying, so he says, “No, Dirk, I have never been married.”

    “Hm,” says Dirk. Todd has about two blessed seconds of thinking he’s done with the topic before Dirk follows it up with, “Do you think you would like to be married?”

    ------

    Dirk and Todd plan simultaneous proposals, neither of which (predictably) goes as planned.
