    Summary

    Svlad's at the point where he’s just wandering around London. He’s poked his head inside a pet shop, four restaurants, a hair salon (he doesn’t know anything about hair but he’s sure he can learn on the job), a bakery, and six video stores. Everyone’s turned him down for work, which he thinks is a little inconsiderate, honestly, they don’t even know him. He’s somewhere in Soho when he sees a large bookshop. It looks like it’s been there forever, with lovely large windows and a very nice wood front. The top of the bookstore reads that it’s the store of one Mr. Ezra Fell. 

    Svlad hasn’t tried a bookshop yet. Might as well get shot down there, too.

     

    Where Dirk Gently, thoroughly down on his luck, gets a job in a bookstore shortly after getting kicked out of Cambridge, and tries to figure things out.

    Summary

    Todd is ultimately not that surprised when he, Dirk, and Farah are walking down the street and Dirk sees someone walking on the opposite sidewalk, screams, and starts jumping up and down and waving. He is surprised, though, when that stranger starts jumping up and down and waving and screaming back. Usually if Dirk attracts someone’s attention, they stare at him like a crazy person, unless he asks if they’ve experienced accelerated strangeness or maybe their goat has gone missing, or maybe if they’re gained a goat, and then they’re usually a surprise client.

     

    Dirk and the Doctor excitably run into each other on the street.

    Summary

    Even from a young age, he isn’t a romantic. It’s around third grade that kids start writing to their Match, eight year olds asking questions about their name, where they’re from, what they like, who they are. Todd doesn’t. He’s not really into the idea of Matches, even if it’s something he can’t change. People fall in love with people. If he falls in love, he’s not going to fall in love with someone who he knows only from ink on his arms that he didn’t put there.

    Whoever his Match is, however, does not feel the same way. His left arm (so he must be right handed) is covered with doodles. Crude flowers drawn with what looks like ballpoint pens, so lots of skipping and gaps in the lines. Sometimes the outlines of hearts that look like fountain pens, but are smudged quickly, the ink running too hard.

    Soulmate AU where anything you write on your arm appears visible on your soulmate's. Written for the Dirk Gently Big Bang 2017.
