Untitled (
DC Peter Grant and DCI Thomas Nightingale have been seconded for the day to CO11’s public order operation in Tottenham, North London, where some 40,000 people are expected to demonstrate against worsening race relations in contemporary Britain.

The neighbourhood has a troubled history of violent rioting. The Metropolitan Police are there to maintain order. Peter thinks he can hear Mr Punch laughing.

What could possibly go wrong?

Sixthlight writes Alexander Seawoll of Rivers of London going on holiday to Midsomer. There are murders.


“I wouldn’t be holidaying in Midsomer,” said Miriam. “Their murder team works harder than we do. You’ll probably trip over six bodies before the week’s up.”

The Road Not Taken
Sixthlight wrote a bodyswap between senior officer!peter fic and peter/nightingale futurefic - it was so good for me


“The question being,” said Nightingale, “if you’re really a sergeant, and a wizard, and part of the Folly – where’s Commander Grant?”

“Fucked if I know,” I said. “All I did was walk in my own back door.”

Fifteen years after a headless body was discovered in Covent Garden, Thomas Nightingale is still the last wizard in Britain, and Peter Grant, newly appointed Commander for Community Engagement in the Metropolitan Police Service, has just learned the truth about the existence of the Folly.

He has one or two questions.

Probationary Constable Peter Grant met me for the first time when I walked up to him by the portico of the Actors' Church on a freezing winter night and said, "Hello. What are you up to?" However, I first met Detective Sergeant Peter Grant when he jogged up to my doorstep on a mild autumn afternoon and said, "There you are, sir. It is you, isn't it?"

Ghosts of Ettersberg
A fic about what could have happened at Ettersberg (Rivers of London)

Work Text:

Thomas wakes from the silence of the dream to the silent house, and endures the usual momentary horror before the waking silence becomes natural and not uncanny. It's not even true silence, merely quiet, tempered by his ticking clock and the creaks of the Folly's old foundations. Thomas breathes deeply, remembering how to relax his locked throat and chest, which ache from unrealised screams. He never screams aloud during nightmares, although he can remember screeches and shouts echoing along hospital corridors and knows it isn't true of everyone.

Though I Sang in My Chains Like the Sea - Anonymous - Rivers of London - Ben Aaronovitch [Archive of Our Own]
An EXCELLENT Rivers of London casefic from Nightengale's POV.

It was amazing the difference between an empty house and a house containing two medium-sized apprentices and a small dog. Thomas could hear them as he came down to breakfast, and it was a testament to familiarity that he knew immediately that something was off. Peter was speaking a little too loudly, Lesley wasn’t saying unrepeatable things over the paper, and Toby wasn’t yapping at all.

So he wasn’t entirely surprised to find Detective Sergeant Miriam Stephanopoulos seated at the head of the table with a heaped plate before her. Peter and Lesley were in their usual places. Thomas made a wager with himself that this would be the last time Peter ever came down to breakfast in his pajamas.
