The most recent Tropical Storm is named Noel.  My first thought was "I've been to a wonderful hurricane party."
 Any little wind can gust,
 Any little gale can blow,
 Any little storm can cause a little rain
 Raise a little hell, be a little hurricane
 Any little cloud can float
 Over any little island, too
 But I can't do anything at all
 But just love you!

Apparently he's really upset about not getting enough egg rolls, and is taking it out on the poor Caribbean.

The idea is to create a crossover 'verse for all the 1920s/1930s literature I can possibly squeeze in there.

Going by the latest publication date for Psmith and the earliest for the Saint, the two characters are the same age.  If you allow for a few years to go by, and assume that Wodehouse knew of what he spoke when he said Psmith ended up being a Perry Mason sort of defense attorney, the type who get their clients declared not guilty by convincing the jury that somebody else who isn't even on trial was the one who really dunnit, and moreover consider that he's not likely to care whether or not his client or the alternate target actually WAS the one who dunnit so long as he wins the argument, circumstances that would lead to Simon Templar and R. Psmith (The P Is Silent As In Pterodactyl and Psychic) making each others' acquaintance readily present themselves to the active and imaginative mind.

Also in the mix are Lord Peter Wimsey, whose detectivey instincts may also lead his path to intersect the Saint's, and Bertie Wooster, who wouldn't get mixed up in anything with anyone except that he's of the right social class and a member of at least one club in common with Psmith (who's never struck me as a good candidate for the Drones, really, but it's canon).

A throwaway remark by Roger Conway in "Saint Overboard" about having spent a dreary weekend holed up at a house party in Shropshire gives us an in - Psmith is from Shropshire, and the population of that county is small enough that it wouldn't be a big stretch to say he was at the party as well.

Cameos may occur from characters in Georgette Heyer's "Blunt Instrument," since I have a copy of it to use and it's also in the same milieu.

If I'm missing anything, suggest!

Hahaha.  There was a commercial on for Family Guy wherein Stewie was singing a song which COMPLETELY sounded like something by Noel Coward.

My manner, quite effete
Is mistaken on the street
For a sailor who can pirouette on cue
Well, despite your point of view
I can thrill a girl or two
But I'd rather get it on with you
titusnowl: (Kincaid's stolen donkey)
You know what, Noel Coward?  FUCK YOU.  You couldn't even tell me how many spring rolls you needed, PLUS your butler or valet or whoever the fuck he was is an asshole, PLUS you insulted my hat, PLUS you fleeced me at poker and you KNEW I didn't know how to play.  NOEL COWARD, YOU CAN EAT A BAG OF DICKS.
