    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

    Their father isn’t superstitious but neither is he a god-fearing man, rather indifferent about the whole thing really. Their mother on the other hand? Well, you probably would never meet a more superstitious woman in your life.
    It was an iron nail over the doorframe of each room, a horseshoe the right side up over the entrance to the house. Iron rings, perfect circle rugs, stones that shone in the sunlight tucked into her pockets, baby teeth in boxes, a locket with their hair which was mildly creepy in the Victorian sense and yet also strangely endearing

    Summary

    Farah looks like she’s about to be sick. “You’re asking me,” she says slowly, clenching the towels so tightly in her hand that Dirk thinks they might spontaneously combust, “for dating advice… with Todd… Brotzman?”

    “Yes, I suppose I am,” says Dirk, beaming at her.

    -----

    Todd kissed Dirk in the basement of Blackwing and hasn't spoken to him since. Dirk sets out to solve the case.

    Summary

    “I incline to the quantum mechanical view in this matter. My theory is that your cat is not lost, but that his waveform has temporarily collapsed and must be restored. Schrödinger. Planck. And so on.”

    Summary

    Dirk was self-aware enough to acknowledge that he was bad under pressure. But he'd started to get the hang of things, at least with Todd, so when he finds Todd on the floor of the kitchen he is, thankfully, not entirely helpless.

    Summary

    “Good morning, darling,” says Dirk with his sleepy early-morning smile.

    “Good morning… baby,” Todd says.

    Dirk blinks like he can’t quite believe his ears and then bursts out laughing so hard he falls off the bed.

    There is nothing Todd can say that will match the ridiculous romance of Dirk's 'darling.' Or is there?

    Summary

    “You really spent like an hour recreating some dumb TikTok?”

    “That’s where I got the idea. I wanted to know if I could still do it!”

    “Swallow an oreo stack?”

    “No, Todd, deepthroating, haven’t you been listening?”


    Or, Dirk accidentally-on-purpose seduces Todd through food-related TikTok challenges.

    Summary

    On most occasions, if a certain holistic detective was given the opportunity, he would enjoy the calmness that came with the universe deciding to be fairly quiet and not delivering unbidden hunches at a mile a minute. However, it is— all things considered— getting quite old. He hates being trapped inside, feeling like he’s in the eye of the storm, and like the second he leaves this ridiculous little flat that he will be flung headfirst into a very large and frightening bloody disaster. And he aches, knowing that he’s supposed to help people be where they need to go, and instead he’s just watching them walk the streets of Cambridge below when they all should be at home. Stupid ruddy bats always stealing fruit, flying into walls, and causing global pandemics.


    Based on my interpretation of the aftermath of Socially Distanced Dirk which originally aired at the 2021 Douglas Adams Memorial Lecture and written for the DGHDA 2021 Beginner Bang.

    Summary

    “Are you really from Britain?” Todd blurts out one day, after Dirk drags them all out for something unfortunately called a crumpet.

    “That’s a rather rude question, Todd,” says Dirk. “How would you like it if I asked if you were American? Pass the jam, would you? It’s a lovely jam, isn’t it, these strawberries must be freshly picked…”

    Todd doesn’t press him on it, because Amanda’s already giving him the side-eye for asking in the first place, but it doesn’t escape his notice that Dirk didn’t answer the question.

    Todd's suspicions about Dirk's past lead him to more answers than he bargained for. Written for the 6/7 DGHDA Fortnightly Free-for-all prompt "flannel."

    Summary

    He does not think about home.
    The memories feel like they burn holes in his mind.

    AU where every Blackwing subject is a changeling, except for one: an abducted fae, who will answer to no name but Icarus.

    Summary

    Dirk grasps at straws to try and find a solution. The detective doesn’t have time to actually work it through, he just tries to word and pray that something comes out that will help assuage Todd’s emotions. “Perhaps if we know why they are haunting the gymnasium, we can ask them to leave or pass onto the next world or something… Or maybe—”

    Todd shakes his head and cuts off the detective countering the ramblings spiral. “They’ve been here for over a century. They aren’t just going to pack up and leave. Look, I think you’re going about this all wrong.”

    Wrong.

    Dirk subconsciously flinches at the word as if he is undergoing electroshock treatment in real-time once more. The word buzzes in his brain and repeats itself like a needle in his brain.

    Wrong!

    Todd continues trailing off on the case and it’s quite possibly the last thing he can focus on at the moment as his fingers start tense and the incoming breath feels heavier than before. “We should talk to the headmaster. Farah said— Dirk?”

    Wrong!

    Summary

    It only takes once, Dirk's thoughts running away from him in the middle of their first case together, thinking, Todd Brotzman is everything.

    Or, what happens when there's a magic spell in the air making everything feel possible, and there's two idiots in love who refuse to talk about it finally given the chance.

    Summary

    Dirk gets caught up in a conversation with Amanda about different “types” of gay after she does an online quiz with him. Having never really had the chance to experiment as a teen (and being caught up in The Stream of Creation after escaping BW), he ended up “disaster gay” by default. Now Dirk is taking the opportunity to explore identities.
