    Summary

    Oneshot collection of all of my Rivers of London fics for Whumptober 2021.

    Day 1: When Peter gets a phone call from Lesley warning him to let sleeping dogs lie, he's pretty sure that means the sleeping dogs are about to wake up and bite him.

    Day 4: The Hanging Tree canon divergence. When Peter gets snatched away to fairyland, a (un)familiar face shows up to save him.

    Day 5: Lesley tases Peter and runs at the end of Broken Homes, but she doesn't make it very far.

    Day 9: Even after everything, Peter is still shaken by Lesley's death. Except, she doesn't stay dead for very long.

    Day 12: Lies Sleeping canon divergence. Lesley ultimately decides against torturing her best friend.

    Summary

    Aziraphale & Crowley helped stop the Apocalypse ten years ago. It's been quiet since, but they've never believed Heaven and Hell really gave up on the whole 'destroying the earth' thing. And now an angel has fallen from the sky, found injured and unconscious in St. James Park, and Peter Grant of the Folly has called them in to help. Old friends and new join forces to protect humanity as the other shoe finally drops.

    You do not need to have read the Rivers of London series to follow this work (although it's a wonderful series which I highly recommend.) All you really need to know is that the Folly is the Scotland Yard office for the weird and uncanny, and it is staffed solely by the wizard DCI Thomas Nightingale and his apprentice, PC Peter Grant. If you're not familiar with Good Omens, on the other hand, you will be completely lost.

    This work is completed.

    Summary

    ...sneaking stealthily through the snow had reminded Nightingale of an operation in Tibet in 1938.
    ‘Chasing German archaeologists,’ he said. ‘Complete wild goose chase for them and for us.’
    Whispers Under Ground, chapter 10

    I'll be honest, I didn't see this coming.

    I blame the yaks.

    Summary

    Based in the 'Rivers of London' series and running in parallel with 'Lies Sleeping', this introduces a senior army officer and details his relationship with the Folly.

    Comments and (constructive) criticism are welcome.

    This story is dedicated to my cat Watson who was sadly 'put to sleep' on New Year's day 2020 to end his suffering.

    Summary

    His mouth twisted in something that was either a smile or a grimace or both. He understood.

    ‘How do you manage it?’ she asked, because her own methods of putting riverine dignity above personal grievances were starting to buckle under a weight they weren’t built to hold. ‘Making decisions like that go against everything you want to do, everything you feel you should be doing… How do you make yourself keep going?’

    ‘Ah, that’s fairly simple. I ask myself what Peter would do.’

    ---------

    The story of how Beverley moved into the tech cave during the section of Lies Sleeping where Peter's gone missing, and some of the conversations between her and Nightingale that happened there.

    Summary

    At the beginning of Operation Jennifer, certain people at the Met got interested in a comparative assessment of magical power. My best answer to what you do when faced with a practitioner of Nightingale’s calibre is that you come at them with another Nightingale. Failing that, my personal preference is to summon the closest friendly river goddess and hope it's high tide. Not currently an option.

    All I had on me now was a sanded mobile, a suspiciously well-fitting suit, and what wits I had to rub together.

    Time to use them, Grant.

    Summary

    “I must warn you, I am unreasonably fast with this,” Nightingale said, cradling what looked like a miniature spinning sun in his left hand.

    “Really? Faster than a speeding bullet?” Cabal replied, with the confidence of a man standing comfortably behind the best that Mr Webley&Scott could offer.

    Summary

    Someone is stealing computer equipment from across London, and no one can work out who or, for that matter, why. With alarm bells ringing, the legendary Flying Squad turn to Peter for help, and Peter turns to Dr David Mellenby, an astrophysicist who knows rather more about magic than Peter expected. In an investigation that criss crosses the capital, but especially the river, Peter learns more than he ever wanted to about quantum, cryptocurrencies, and just what it takes to destroy a computer.

    Sometimes Nightingale wondered what would have happened if Molly had turned out to be human. Or, if he was being completely honest, if he himself had turned out to be more human.
