I adore Peter,Nightingale,Mama Thames, Molly.
The series is the right blend of humor and serious,and features a great ensemble cast of characters
I would love to see more Peter/Nightingale slash fic out there. Their initial meeting is a slashers dream,however I'd also love to see gen works featuring solid case orientated stories.

Oops,I didn't properly introduce myself.
I go by the name of scarlet_bohemian here on DW,and I am in love with The Rivers of London series. I also enjoy: Foyle's War,Sherlock Holmes(ACD and Granada),Star Trek(TOS&DS9),Inspecttor Morse and the spinoffs Lewis and Endeavour.
I read well-written fanfic(slash,femslash,het,poly,gen),and I particularly search for stories portray characters of colour and queer people in non-stereotypical ways
I'm not a big fantasy genre person(Snape is the only HP character I like),but urban fantasy is growing on me,thanks to ROL.

Hello! I'm sevenall and I've fallen so much in love with the "Rivers of London" series that it's ridiculous. My favourite character is Nightingale, but Peter, Lesley and Molly aren't far behind.

My favourite scene so far might be the one where Peter goes into the river with Ash.

I'm a voracious fanfic reader (everything from CJ Cherryh to Magnificent 7) and a glacially slow writer (mostly comics fanfic with some notable exceptions). So, of course I was delighted to find this community. The fic in this fandom is very high quality and I've enjoyed reading it so much - I do want more of it, though. And I hope there will be many lovely discussions at this comm!

Thank you so much! I'm happy to be here.

I've read "Broken Homes" and the Thomas "Tiger Tank" scene is pure delight.

Hi! Only recently discovered RoL and, having devoured all the books, I needed to seek out others to flail and generally geek over it with, so here I am! It's been a while since I was active on LJ and DW, so it's been a bit of a process of re-familiarisation and that's even before (maybe)venturing into the murky waters of tumblr, so please bear with me...


I love the general tone of the books; Peter as a protagonist is pretty fab in all his snarky-yet-surprisingly-erudite glory. And Nightingale. For reasons which need no explanation!

Heyyy, I'm Mona, and I LOVE these books -- have just finished Moon Over Soho, so pretty early in!

I love Peter's wry voice but want to occasionally do what his mum prescribes and adore Nightingale -- totally shipping these two, too. My next favorite is Leslie; I really hope she'll be okay (mentally more than anything) -- an actually gifted copper! *gasp*

Things I want to know more about: magic as such -- I'm with Peter here, and Walid to some degree -- vampires, and what the bleep is happening to magic...
