  1. Summary

    A series of Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy AU pre-canon fics about Ford Prefect confronting his drinking problem, Arthur Dent managing his anxiety, and both of them falling in love.

    Each entry in this series is meant to be able, as much as possible, to be read as a standalone story without needing the other fics for context, but the later a fic is in the series, the more context may be required. This series also touches upon some dark themes past the obvious; they are so far yet to appear but will be heavily content-warned when they do.

    Summary

    Sometimes you want something more than your towel to keep you warm at night.

    Arthur Dent and Ford Prefect have been best friends for years. Ever since his planet (literally) and life (figuratively) got blown up, Arthur has been searching the galaxy for a place he belongs. No matter where he goes, nothing quite fits. Meanwhile, Ford has been running for most of his life, never stopping long enough to get to know anyone. Well, except for those times he got stranded on a backwater planet and found someone worth taking with him. But no matter how fast he runs, he never quite finds what he is looking for.

    Given the chance to travel without the looming threat of being thrown out of an airlock or turned into a penguin, Arthur and Ford are discovering that they just might be looking for the same thing.

    Set vaguely after Mostly Harmless, but they are alive. Somewhat canon compliant to the books with the caveat that elements of other sources are picked and chosen at the author's whim.

    Summary

    Before he ever met Ford Prefect, Arthur Dent had a pretty appalling day. We are not convinced that the situation will improve... Pretty fluffy original meeting.

    Summary

    The Vogons never destroy Earth. Neither Ford or Arthur are ever made aware of this.
    This means that neither of them will be going home anytime soon.
    So what comes next?

    Set in an AU where the Vogons never destroy Earth.

    (This is more of a character study on Ford then anything! The idea of "what's he gonna do if he's stuck here forever" was chewing on me)
