    Summary

    Oneshot collection of all of my Rivers of London fics for Whumptober 2021.

     

     

    Day 1: When Peter gets a phone call from Lesley warning him to let sleeping dogs lie, he's pretty sure that means the sleeping dogs are about to wake up and bite him.

    Day 4: The Hanging Tree canon divergence. When Peter gets snatched away to fairyland, a (un)familiar face shows up to save him.

    Day 5: Lesley tases Peter and runs at the end of Broken Homes, but she doesn't make it very far.

    Day 9: Even after everything, Peter is still shaken by Lesley's death. Except, she doesn't stay dead for very long.

    Day 12: Lies Sleeping canon divergence. Lesley ultimately decides against torturing her best friend.

    Day 22: Lesley gets a brief respite from the voices in her head.

    Day 29: Peter ends up in a sticky situation and gets some help from an old friend.

    Summary

    Someone is stealing computer equipment from across London, and no one can work out who or, for that matter, why. With alarm bells ringing, the legendary Flying Squad turn to Peter for help, and Peter turns to Dr David Mellenby, an astrophysicist who knows rather more about magic than Peter expected. In an investigation that criss crosses the capital, but especially the river, Peter learns more than he ever wanted to about quantum, cryptocurrencies, and just what it takes to destroy a computer.

    Summary

    There is, for various reasons, no easy way to say to a person hey - your friend and mine, the last competent magician in England, stepped out at ten this morning with a last admonition to his apprentices to get their latin homework done whilst he followed up on an uninteresting lead on our latest magical murder case and he hasn’t been seen in the eight hours since.

    Nightingale worries a witch; Peter is in the dog house; Lesley rails against the concept of politeness; the world is deprived of another Fenton video on YouTube.

    Summary

    Time and Destiny are a fickle thing.
    Do you know the feeling, when you know that you will regret it for the rest of your life if you don't do something?
    And when you can pinpoint years later the exact moment where you went wrong? If you had just reacted differently you would not be here, but somewhere else. somewhere better!
    Suche wistful thinking can drive you mad and give you a reason to better yourself. Peter Grant had several of this moment in his life. And as he lay dying in the ruins of the Pergola in Hampstead Heath, he contemplated all these moments. Would he act differently in those moments, if given the chance? hell yes. But those maybes and could have's, should have's are just dust and mist.
    But there are also those moments where you do the right thing even if it is not easy in that moment.
    Time and Destiny are fickle lovers, they have their favourites, their champions and they love to meddle.

    Peter Grant was the first English apprentice wizard in over seventy years. Again.

    Summary

    “Bev,” I said, holding a hand out behind me, already fumbling for my phone. “Bev, stay back, don’t get any closer.”

    Beverley stayed put, thank God, but called back, “Peter, what’s wrong, what is it?”

    “I don’t know,” I said, my hand on my phone, already dialing Nightingale’s number from memory, “But it’s from Lesley.”

    Summary

    A short story about a young couple (Beverley Brook & Peter Grant) rising for breakfast, the context sets it immediately after the ending of Lies Sleeping.

    Therefore a spoiler alert issued for Lies Sleeping.

    There is a general reference to another magical community's existence (That of Harry Potter et al) but no specific HP characters are involved.

    The trigger was two consecutive Writer’s Group prompts today: the first, the title above, the second the phrase “He studied her face in the mirror” and the words kiosk, candyfloss, envy and Nightingale. The title prompt is a quote from a work by Malcolm R Campbell:–
    see https://malcolmsroundtable.com/2019/02/20/a-broken-man-lives-on-my-street/

    Usual disclaimer. Anything borrowed, whether from canon or elsewhere, remains the copyright of the originator(s)/publisher(s), the rest is my copyright. (See also Notes)

    Summary

    When Peter Grant is whisked out of unemployment and into a post as Potions Master at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, he expects the teenagers to be the worst things in the castle. It's a pity Lesley May thinks one of the other new professors might be working for the Faceless Man. And as far as she's concerned, the most likely suspect is Defense expert Thomas Nightingale--gorgeous, talented, and a totally sketchy bastard.
