    Summary

    For the DGHDA Big Bang 2018.

    When a god disappears from an intergalactic church leaving behind swathes of followers with no choice but to face reality for a change, its has all the appearances of one of those bizarre and unique mysteries for the ages.

    It would be amiss to think that it has anything do with a small child experiencing the terror of their entire planet being engulfed.

    It would be awry to think that it has any link with Tina Tevetino waking up in a motel pool with years of past memories wiped.

    And it would be askew of anyone to connect it with Detective Farah Black and Not-Detective Todd Brotzman, the former solving a crime-a-day and the latter in the midst of child rearing.

    But "amiss" "awry" and "askew" are not words in Dirk Gently's dictionary. He spilt a banana flavoured milkshake over the "A" section quite a few years ago.

    This work is canon-compliant as per the end of Season 2. It refers to canon set out in the two Dirk Gently novels and the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy series, but no knowledge of either is required to understand the work.

    Summary

    Todd got up, leaving Dirk to flop face-first, softly whimpering, into the warm spot he’d vacated.

    “Hey, wait a minute,” Todd said, pressing the back of his hand to Dirk’s cheek. “Are you sick?”

    “No,” Dirk whined into the pillow, swallowing painfully. “I’m just disinclined to be vertical due to—” he rolled over, finding that his limbs felt heavy “—a bunch of random aches and pains.”

    [Totally readable as a stand-alone, but definitely follows on from Our Own Thing and Dark Days, Wild Nights.]

    Summary

    "Terrible as it is, it’s easier to cling to the hope that there were good reasons for what they did. That the people who treated him well were at heart good people, and they hadn’t just been lying to him the whole time, that the small amounts of affection he’d been given were real and tangible. Even when he knows the truth somewhere deep inside it doesn’t mean he wants to acknowledge it.

    But, like all things, it’s only a matter of time."

    ***
    The only thing Dirk Gently has ever learned to do with his trauma, is shove it down as deep as it will go, lock it away, and hope that ignoring it means it isn't really there. For a while at least, it works. But when the past comes knocking looking to make amends, and pretending that none of it was as bad as it seemed isn't an option anymore, the delicate balancing act he's been practicing for years finally tips over the edge.

    Healing is painful, recovery isn't linear, sometimes you have to tear everything down before you can start to rebuild.

    His own demons might be the scariest thing he's ever had to face, but it's not something he has to do alone, and in the end that makes all the difference.

    Summary

    "What about him?" Dirk asked innocently, taking an avid interest in the remains of his banana milkshake.

    Farah rolled her eyes. "Don't make me say it."

    He carefully arranged a blob of cream into a cat shape with his straw.

    "Fine. Dirk, how's the enormous crush on your roommate going?"

     

    Dirk returns to the Ridgely after an impromptu jaunt across the Nordic wilderness, and finds life has moved on somewhat in his absence. With Farah camping in his bedroom, Bart and Ken living in (alleged) domestic bliss, and Todd freshened up and back on the dating scene, he finds himself with no one to commiserate with but his agoraphobic landlady Amanda; who, sadly, remains the one person he can never be truly honest with, on account of the whole 'lying to get the flat' thing.

    A superbly bad idea, in retrospect.

    Return to the domestic mayhem as the sadder but wiser six grapple their way through the maze of adult life; featuring quests for belonging, self-actualisation, and hobbies that don't involve shooting each other with paint.

    Summary

    la CIA ha deciso di riacchiappare i suoi fuggitivi soggetti del progetto Blackwing. Ma stavolta c’è una differenza. O più di una. Comunque sia, stavolta un gruppetto costituito da un ex bugiardo patentato, una punk entusiasta per l’avventura, una guardia del corpo giusto un poco borderline, un hacker che sospetta di essere seriamente in preda ad un grave caso di sindrome di Stoccolma, uno dei progetti in questione ancora uccel di bosco, e altri eventuali alleati, sono decisi a recuperare i propri amici (o potenziali futuri colleghi. O ex-sequestratori omicidi seriali. O neo compagni di gang. Insomma, quello che è.). Beh, o almeno a provarci… giusto? Ma non importa, perché tanto succederà solo e solamente ciò che l’universo vorrà che succeda. Poco ma sicuro.

    Summary

    “I was bloody wrong,” Dirk lamented, flopping against Todd’s chest. “Romantically speaking, Farah’s doing just fine. And here we are in—where the hell is this again? Oh, right, a town literally called Dickshooter—barking up the wrong tree. We’re on our second stolen car, running out of fake IDs, and the stress of this nonsense is making you sicker.”

    “Look on the bright side,” Todd yawned, hugging Dirk tightly. “Rural America is ridiculous.”

    “No kidding,” Dirk groused. “Twenty miles southeast of here, there’s a town called Riddle.”

    “We could make it our next stop,” Todd said, suddenly electrified. “With a name like that, I mean—Dirk, who knows? What if the universe is taking us there for a reason?”

    “That would be a bit heavy-handed even for the universe, Todd,” Dirk sighed, patting Todd's hip.

    Summary

    ‘Okay team, the plan for today is as follows,’ Dirk jerks back to reality at the sound of Tina’s voice. ‘I had a chat with the manager of TMF and she says that-’
    ‘TMF?’ Mona butts in. Dirk knew that she wasn’t going to be directly involved with anything relating to the band due to being focused on her own launch, but he had assumed that she would at least know the name of the band that they were there for.
    ‘The Mexican Funeral. Newest, greatest up-and-coming indie band Seattle has seen in a while. We want them. We need them. This is going to be big.’
