Mr. Staker's Holiday

When you looked at it a certain way, the whole thing was Nicholas Angel's fault. If not for him, Sandford, Gloucestershire would not be on its third police station in as many years, and the village's swan population would not be Britain's highest per capita.

"That boy," Andy Wainwright said later, "Is wound too tight."

It started like this.

Nicholas was no longer the ticking time bomb of no one was quite sure what that he had once been, but he was, as Danny Butterman said, always thinking away. Even in his sleep.

Late one night -- or rather, very early one morning -- Nicholas suddenly woke, sat bolt upright, and said, to no one in particular, "Swans don't honk. Swans do not honk!" moreCollapse )

I printed this off and read it on my way to work. The people on the bus kept giving me funny looks.

That was quite brilliant and lovely. You and Viedma, apparently, should not be allowed to communicate because the crack happens, but it is wonderful crack.

I do have to add that my father was a police officer and would take the toothpick out of his mouth every morning when he left for work to kiss my mother goodbye. Because of that, the 'Whee' scene made me laugh even more (and then cringe into a fetal position).

You both rock. Write moar now!

"Can we get another round of Wernham-Hogg Copybrite over here?"
That was my favourite bit. I'm sorry, that's probably a bit of a let down to you, considering this whole thing is really awesome and epic. I'm just on a Martin Freeman kick at the moment. I'm sorry.

I also really loved Dewey and Blanksy. They were great characters, and I really enjoyed how the introduction of Dewey influenced the narration style of the fic. People should play around with style more.

This is quite awesome and tasty! The cleverness runs throughout like a vein of gold.

I'm now craving a peanut butter sandwich like crazy...

OMG OMG OMG OMGOMGOMFG!!!!! My face aches from all the grinning, chortling, and giggling! Whatever drugs or alternate reality generators are involved in this creation - KEEP DOIN' IT! This is so delightfully derangedly bent I can't encompass it's awesomeness in words. OMFG! *flail*
You two rock the electrons in my brain. <3 <3 <3

I don't know how you managed to make this story so cracktastic and hilarious and yet so emotionally full and moving as well. Amazing stuff and a joy to read.

Squee! Thank you so much. We...I think our main goal by the end was not to kill each other, really. Two people working simultaneously in the same Googledoc = hilarity.
