Fandom: Nero Wolfe books, by Rex Stout
Pairing: Archie Goodwin/Saul Panzer
Rating: General Audiences

Author's summary: Every now and then, in those dangerous silences before Wolfe revealed killers for who they were, Saul permitted an absurd and romantic notion to cross his mind: if any man could make time stand down, it was Nero Wolfe.

Reader's notes: Don't know the fandom? Here is what you need to know:

The Nero Wolfe books are detective novels written by Rex Stout over about 40 years, from the mid-1930s to the mid-1970s. All the books were set in the year they were written, but the characters remained the same age throughout the series.

Nero Wolfe (link goes to wikipedia page) is a genius detective who never leaves his house on West 35th St. in New York. He's in his mid-50s. Here is what he looks like in the popular A&E tv series (link leads to wikipedia photo), as played by Maury Chaykin.

Archie Goodwin (wikipedia page) is Nero Wolfe's "legman," collecting clues and rounding up witnesses so Wolfe can question them. Archie narrates all the Wolfe books. He is in his early 30s. Here is what he looks like in the A&E tv series (link leads to a fan page), in which he is played by Timothy Hutton.

Saul Panzer (wikipedia page) is a private detective Wolfe sometimes hires to help him and Archie with cases. Saul has an amazing memory as well as an ability to look inconspicuous and unremarkable. He's older than Archie but not as old as Wolfe. Here is what he looks like in the A&E tv series (link to fan page), as played by someone called Conrad Dunn.
