    Summary

    He could always find alternative means of escape. Why not join the Space Corps? Find an Earthbound ship, take off the minute he can go planetside back home. Prefect, Ford: AWOL.

    Ford Prefect is stranded and homesick half a system away from Liverpool. His clever plan to get home quick- join a mining crew to get a free ride home and ditch- hits a snag. A three million year snag, in fact.

    (AKA: Red Dwarf fusion au. Will probably be funnier if you're familiar, but you don't necessarily HAVE to be to read.)

    Summary

    "I can't believe you figured out flight before I could."

    Arthur gives Ford a flight lesson.

    Summary

    “Ford,” Arthur said, trying not to sound too plaintive, which was difficult when one was bouncing on the back of a charging Arcturan Mega-Camel, “where are we going?”

    “Somewhere special!” Ford hollered back, before he went into a coughing fit from all the dust.

    Arthur wasn't convinced. “Last time you said that, I ended up living in a damp cave for five years.”

    “Here!” Ford thrust something at him. Arthur reached for it and felt his fingers close on the familiar cover of the Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy. “Find the entry on the Buried Oasis of Haluta Arbenaz IV.”
