    Summary

    The man’s eyes widen. “Hang on.” He drops the shoe and tries to scramble over the lobby desk. He’s only technically successful, flailing onto the floor.

    “Whoa, dude, are you-“ He does that disconcerting popping up thing again, this time right in his face. He steps back a little. “Whoa, dude-“

    “Hang on.”

    “You already said-“

    “You said you don’t know if you like being scruffy or not.” He tilts his head. “Are you trying to tell me that you don’t know who you are either?”

     

    Dirk and Todd, with no memory in a hotel that goes on forever.

    Summary

    Todd’s heart stops. Or it feels like it does because… that’s a voice. That’s a human voice. That’s a human voice that he must have been hallucinating. He’s been driving too long, drunk too much coffee, didn’t get enough sleep last night he’s just-

    “Bloody hell, it’s dark in here.”

    Nope. Todd scrambles to open the car door and flings himself away from the vehicle, stumbling backwards until he lands on his ass, staring at the car with wide eyes and struggling to catch his breath past the sheer terror that’s overcome him all of a sudden.

    This isn’t happening.
    ***

    Todd knows the work he does isn't the most morally sound, being a delivery guy for a local gang was never going to to be, but the job is good, the pay is better, and no matter how temporary it was supposed to be when he started he has no intention of stopping now.

    Then a strange man with an even stranger name wakes up in the trunk of his car, and everything goes to shit.

    Summary

    It only hits Dirk approximately two days later.

    He can offer only vague excuses as to why (there was a case, there was a parade literally outside his hotel window, a man chased them with a tuba and tried to hit them repeatedly), but really, they’re not good excuses, it’s a fairly major event and it’s a little ridiculous that he somehow muffled it against all the background noise.

    As a result, it is only when they are back home and Dirk is in his own apartment, bringing a mug back to the kitchen when it abruptly occurs to him that, two days earlier, on a balcony, he kissed Todd on impulse.

     

    Dirk after the Pride comic released over the summer.

    Summary

    Dirk has never had a romantic relationship before. So now that it appears he is in the process of one such relationship with Todd, it is… startling.

    Or, in which Dirk is scared that he can't be what Todd deserves, and Todd tries his best to convince him that that isn't true. Featuring: a lot (and I mean a lot) of cuddling, thirty seven cast-iron pans, and one novelty condom.

    Summary

    With life at the Agency settling down to a less life-threatening (but no less bizarre) daily routine, Dirk and Todd feel their way through developing feelings and a relationship that can't quite be defined by any one word in the English language. There are important conversations to be had- usually in a chaotic kitchen in the dead of night. Well, where else would you have them?
