    Summary

    Middle-Earth would have ended much differently if Bilbo did not love Frodo more than he loved the Ring.

    (This is a story simply about love, but it is no bad thing to celebrate a simple life)

    Summary

    Dirk scoffs. “Mind control? Honestly, Todd, you do think up the strangest things!”

    Todd sighs in relief-

    “Seizing the nervous system and reprogramming the brain, though, is entirely possible!”

    -and visibly deflates. Before he can say anything, though, Dirk continues talking.

    “I do imagine that it feels something akin to mind control, at least until their brains are wiped, that is. But why these people and these specific murders?”

    “Dirk,” Todd cuts him off. “That’s all… fine. But aren’t you worried that we keep running into these people? Like, that’s weird right? It’s not just me?”

    Dirk hops a little in place, seemingly ignoring the dead body at his feet. “It’s not weird, Todd, it’s--!”

    “Yeah, yeah.” Todd sighs again. Did he used to sigh this much? “Universe, creation, etcetera etcetera. Aren’t you worried, though? They might be coming after us, since we’re detectives.”

    Dirk preens a little at ‘us’ and ‘we’, but airily waves a hand in dismissal. “Of course not, Todd. What would they want with us?”

    Summary

    Truly, Dirk had been wholly prepared to avoid death until he was on a hospital bed at age ninety and it was the only logical place for the universe to guide him next. That sounded like a rather nice option; the almost pleasant sort of conclusion everyone silently prayed they would get.

    Fate, it seemed, had other plans for him.

    Dying for someone else was different than ordinary dying. It was meaningful – a necessity even, if the person threatened was worth enough to you.

    And no one in the world meant more to Dirk Gently than Todd Brotzman.

    --

    Dirk is a magnet for dangerous activity; this has always been the sad, unfortunate truth of his universe-controlled life. As a result, he must always be prepared for the bizarre, and often life-threatening situations that actively await him day in and out. What he never prepared for, however, is the sudden arrival of a group led by an Ex-Blackwing employee seeking to lure him in using any means necessary. In order to save what he holds most dear, Dirk must be willing to sacrifice everything. Thus, leaving Todd to deal with the bitter aftermath, and once more desperately search for a way to fix everything.
