    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

    Although bellhop Todd Brotzman doesn’t have a lot going on in his life, the worst awaits him. It begins when he arrives at work one day and is sent up to the hotel’s penthouse, where he discovers millionaire Patrick Spring has been murdered. An odd chain of events that unfolds leads to Todd becoming a person of interest in the crime and losing his job. That is when he meets Svlad Cjelli, a fast-talking, eccentric Detective/CIA Agent, and his ‘Assistant’ Osmund Priest, who have been hired to investigate the murder of Patrick Spring. Svlad believes that he and Todd are destined to solve the mystery together. Once Svlad is able to convince (or kidnap) Todd in to working with them, the latter is visited by wild, dangerous characters – all associated with Svlad– who complicate his life further.

    AU Verse in which CIA Agent Svlad Cjelli is solving the Spring Case and he and his 'Handler' Osmund Priest kidnap Todd Brotzman and force him to tag along in the crazy shenanigans.

    Summary

    Project Marzanna doesn't attract as many scientists as Project Icarus. Mainly because the scientists who work on Marzanna have a bad habit of dying.

    Companion fic to Project Icarus. Bart-centric, though Dirk plays a key role and makes a few appearances.

    Summary

    On the run from what's left of Torchwood, Norton Folgate accidentally spatially dislocates himself into Blackwing's compound in 2017.

    Just his luck, he looks exactly like someone they're looking for, and ends up getting involved in their holistic mess. Also his luck that he has a thing for sociopathic psychos with a penchant for violence. And the apparently 'not-psychic' man with two names that Blackwing is after. At the same bloody time.

    Norton supposes it's still better than living through the 50's.
