    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.

    Summary

    If your posh, repressed governor starts reading you The Wizard of Oz while you’re trying to get over Skygarden, is he flirting with you, wrangling his own demons, or both? Only time will tell.

    Summary

    Aziraphale & Crowley helped stop the Apocalypse ten years ago. It's been quiet since, but they've never believed Heaven and Hell really gave up on the whole 'destroying the earth' thing. And now an angel has fallen from the sky, found injured and unconscious in St. James Park, and Peter Grant of the Folly has called them in to help. Old friends and new join forces to protect humanity as the other shoe finally drops.

    You do not need to have read the Rivers of London series to follow this work (although it's a wonderful series which I highly recommend.) All you really need to know is that the Folly is the Scotland Yard office for the weird and uncanny, and it is staffed solely by the wizard DCI Thomas Nightingale and his apprentice, PC Peter Grant. If you're not familiar with Good Omens, on the other hand, you will be completely lost.

    This work is completed.

    Summary

    ...sneaking stealthily through the snow had reminded Nightingale of an operation in Tibet in 1938.
    ‘Chasing German archaeologists,’ he said. ‘Complete wild goose chase for them and for us.’
    Whispers Under Ground, chapter 10

    I'll be honest, I didn't see this coming.

    I blame the yaks.
