    Summary

    Thomas has always hated whiskey. Long before he associated it with everything that keeps him up at night. But now, staring at the beautiful golden liquid, he can't help but see the eyes of a long-lost love.

     

    Or: A few moments in Nightingale's life. Unexpected feelings, kisses and tragedies... but perhaps also a little comfort at the end of the day?

    Summary

    The next morning I drove up to Hendon for part one of the mandatory Officer Safety Training. You're pretty much expected to do one of these courses every six months until Chief Inspector rank, but I doubt we'll ever see Nightingale do one.

    Summary

    Peter enters the Folly many years earlier; Lesley follows him inside.

    Once, when Lesley was seven and about three months after it happened, she had sat at family dinner and swung her legs as she idly turned a fork around strands of spaghetti and said, rather nonchalantly, that she hoped that when her parents died Mr Nightingale would come and look after her, too.

    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

    “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.”
