The Angel in Duck Lane by calicovirus
Good Omens/Rivers of London, gen. "The unexpected lurks around any corner, and sometimes the theological implications are more than Peter Grant wants to really think about right now, thanks." Peter hits a local bookshop in search of the Bodelian's missing books. // 6.6K. Peter POV. Not much happens, seems more like a proof of concept sort of thing: "Can these be crossed over? Yes, they can."
He didn't want to talk to me, that I could tell. Maybe he knew the books were stolen, or maybe he just read the Daily Mail. He wasn't terribly distinctive, physically; in a crowd of middle-aged rich English men I'm not sure I could have picked him out. He was white, indeterminately middle-aged (late forties? Early fifties?) with dirty blond hair going grey and the kind of old-fashioned wool trousers and jumper combo designed specifically to fight damp. If Nightingale's brand of old-fashioned was the kind packaged up and sold as vintage at ten times its original value, Fell's was the kind found in the bargain bin of rural charity shops: well-worn, bizarrely patterned, and smelling like mothballs.

The World Keeps Turning by Sixthlight
Rivers of London, gen. Peter lets the kitten out of the bag a bit early while Nightingale's over to supervise training. // 3K. Another slice-of-life fic set after "Lies Sleeping." In this case, a pre-kid fic.

Not Dead Yet by scesisonomaton
Rivers of London, gen. Nightingale, with a touch of pneumonia, is predictably the worst invalid ever. // 5K, "Lies Sleeping" followup fic, Peter POV, background Peter/Bev. Just a slice-of-life type fic really.

The Precautionary Principle by Sixthlight
Rivers of London, gen. Peter's done the paperwork. He just has to persuade his bosses that turning Lesley back to their side would be in everyone's best interests. // 2K. Another "Lies Sleeping" missing scene. Yeeowch, focusing on Peter's peculiar relationship with Leslie. And Seawoll, Nightingale, and Stephanopoulos conversation is ... really something I'd be very interested in reading a lot more.

Urban Exploration by Zoya1416
Rivers of London, Peter/Jaget. Peter and Jaget poke around some abandoned storage tunnels beneath Russel Square Station, then extend the exploration to Peter's shower. // 3K. The basic idea here being they're both between girlfriends, so why not. PWP with faint whiffs of denial.

Essential Nature by etben
Rivers of London, gen/het/slash. Peter on leave gets counseling, which leads to him mulling over both Sir William and Beverley in the other world, which leads him to Asking Questions. // 2.5K. Peter POV. A conversation with Ty even. This is an interesting speculative sort of fic.

Rivers of London, Peter/Thomas. When Thomas rapidly deages to 16, Peter goes to Tyburn for help. To Thomas's mortification, she knows precisely what prompted it. // <1K. Thomas POV.

Overrun the Banks by neveralarch
Rivers of London, gen. "Lady Ty has some advice." // <1K. Abigail (POV) investigating, and Lady Ty showing up and being mildly menacing. (I don't know where this is set, which is itchy.)

Let Me Steal This Moment by lesbianmountaingal
Rivers of London, Beverley|Beverley, Beverley/Peter. "When the new Beverley Brook was born he felt it, because of course he did, because on some weird and metaphysical level they were the same person." // 5K. On the topic of Beverley and Beverley (both POVs), which is something I spend a lot of time thinking about as well, though my thoughts don't match with this fic's direction.

Secret Rooms of Hogwarts by Attila
Rivers of London/Harry Potter, Peter/Thomas. "When Peter Grant is whisked out of unemployment and into a post as Potions Master at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, he expects the teenagers to be the worst things in the castle. It's a pity Lesley May thinks one of the other new professors might be working for the Faceless Man. And as far as she's concerned, the most likely suspect is Defense expert Thomas Nightingale--gorgeous, talented, and a totally sketchy bastard." // 87K. Peter POV, fusion fic featuring RoL characters and general plot in an HP world/magic/etc. Peter is hired as a last-minute replacement to teach potions while his roommate Leslie, an auror, heads out on an undercover assignment to spy on the Faceless Man. It's pretty readable* and seems well thought out, but it doesn't really have a decided ending per se -- it just sort of meanders to an end, roughly equivalent to just after RoL "Broken Homes." Beverley and the other rivers are entirely off-screen mentions in this one. *Caveats: Judging from writer's belief that "fuck" is the perfect word for all occasions, I'm guessing she's really young. Found it genuinely off-putting in this context and kept weighing the merits of the back-button. Also, if rereading, please remember the sex scene made you want to stab the screen; just skip over it.

Developing Community Engagement by mechanonymous
Rivers of London, gen. "From community meetings to flooding Romford High Street. Not everything Peter does results in property damage but it's always major property damage when it does." // 1K. Here's an oddity. It's clearly a broken off fic chunk. Bookmarking mainly to find out who posted this and whether they ever plan to finish it, tbh. ETA: "Author" comments that it's complete. Sure. OK then.

God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen by kototyph
Rivers of London, Thomas/Peter. After he's blown off Beverley one time too many, she gives Peter a holiday gift that has him frantically avoiding Nightingale because now he wants the opposite of that. // 11K. Peter POV, sex pollen! Nothing from after "Hanging Tree," and also doesn't incorporate the Abigail short, so something of a fork AU. The family christmas chez Peter's mom and dad is pretty fun.
* "Let Nothing You Dismay," https://archiveofourown.org/works/17222336 Followup fic, the sex scene for the former.

Homemakers by Sophia_Prester
Rivers of London, gen. "At a very dangerous time of year, Peter is re-adjusting to being back at work, Nightingale has something on his mind, and the Folly's greatest defense comes from an unlikely (and delicious) source." // 5.6K. Followup sorta, kinda casefic to "Lies Sleeping." In the midst of everyone tensely waiting for Something Terrible to (possibly) occur and something being off with Thomas, Molly and Foxglove collaborate on a really touching project. (Background Peter/Beverley)
The problem wasn't Christmas itself, as annoying as it made things when you just had to nip down to the shop on a routine errand. The problem was that the Winter Solstice and all of the holidays that had accreted to it over the centuries made this time of year about as safe as the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone.

There and Back Again by doctor_denmark
Rivers of London, gen. "And if you're the woman who, driving along the A4155 that afternoon, found herself inexplicably picking up a pair of hitchhikers and driving them all the way into London, I'm really, really sorry". Lies Sleeping, Chapter 12 // 1.3K. Outside POV, specifically the driver in question. Whew, it's mildly creepy.

The Wonder Dog by beili
Rivers of London, gen. "Dominic sends Peter a video of some singing sheep. The video's not a fake, and the phone that took it should probably be replaced." // 1.4K. Dominic and his hubby (you know, the farmer) ask for help, and Peter stumbles over another category of supernatural denizens. Fun.
I put out several UFO trackers in various parts of the field to get a better picture of what was going on. Whatever it was, it was certainly long-lasting; they’d gotten all the way through "Bohemian Rhapsody" the night before. It had been a pretty good cover, for an a cappella group that could only use the syllable “baa.”

Five to One Against by Philomytha
Rivers of London, gen. "How Molly and Nightingale discovered haemomancy." // 5K. Molly POV. Set during WWII and the Blitz, with some backstory for Molly, who has to make a hard choice. I wasn't actually certain what was going on at one point (and I'm still not sure, tbh), but it didn't impact the overall effect.
