    Summary

    Azra Fell, a former counselor at Eden Youth Rehabilitation Center for juvenile delinquents, has accepted a job as a guard at a maximum-security prison. The inmate janitor on Fell's housing unit, AJ Crowley, was a resident at Eden prior to turning eighteen.

    Both Crowley and Fell have deep-seated regrets stretching back to Eden, but before either of them can address the ghosts of their dark pasts, they will be sideswiped by a corruption ring which threatens Crowley's chances of ever making parole.

    A criminal justice system AU.

    Summary

    After the War between the Heavenly Host and the Fallen Falling angels, Heaven's Host waits outside the gates of Pandemonium for...something to happen. Eventually, Dagon challenges the assembled Host to single combat. If Heaven's champion wins, then Hell surrenders unconditionally. If Hell wins, Heaven kindly pisses off, and all further combat between the two armies takes place on Earth.

    Gabriel is Heaven's champion. Beelzebub fights for Hell.

    Thus begins 6K years of not-so-slow burn.

    Summary

    Angels and Demons have complete control over their appearance. Complete control - including their wings.

    Of course the uniform code demands Black and White and no other colour and after Aziraphale's first run in with the warnings for violations... well he's not up for a second warning.

    But an Angel can dream, right?

    Summary

    After the apocalypse that wasn't, Crowley and Aziraphale always knew that sooner or later Heaven, Hell or both of them would come after them.

    So when the Archangel Michael comes sniffing around the pair, it's not exactly a surprise. It's just that the timing couldn't be worse, because she catches them at a moment when Aziraphale's frustrated creative impulses appear to have plunged them into their most ridiculous predicament yet.

    Resurrections, misconceptions, startled Satanic nuns, eldritch abominations and vacuum cleaner abuse - it's all going on and it's about to get messy, gassy and prone to disastrous decision making. And that's just Crowley.

    Summary

    It's the end of summer in the year 1990. In the next universe over, Crowley and Aziraphale are pretty busy with the Apocalypse not happening. In this one, they have to deal with a much more personal threat: a team of four angels have found them out, and they know the perfect punishment to fit their crime.

    Summary

    Michael just smiled, glancing between the two of them.

    “It was you,” Crowley realized, half rage, half grief. Michael just smiled wider.

    “What?” Aziraphale looked back and forth between them. “What do you mean? What are you talking about?”
    Crowley swallowed, his jaw clenching.

    “The plane crash,” Crowley said in a strained voice. “The lightning,” he explained, even though he knew he didn’t need to. Aziraphale understood already. He just didn’t want to. “It was her.”

    Summary

    The boy had shook with fever, his nightgown plastered to every concavity of his malnourished body. I shall happily enjoy whatever fate my loving God has prepared for me, he'd said, smiling, as Aziraphale had left for the night.

    Aziraphale squeezed his eyes shut, and downed the rest of his glass. 

    Damn the Great Plan. Damn it all to Hell, he most certainly did not think, because it would have been beyond the pale for an angel to think such thoughts. But he came close enough to frighten himself.

    ---

    It's the mid-nineteenth century, and Aziraphale's latest assignment is difficult to bear.

    Summary

    An Alternate Fic to The Good the Bad, and the Ineffable:
    In which God plays games with the universe and you (the reader) are dealt the worst cards in the deck.

    Surprisingly enough, having an archangel as your boss isn't NEARLY as cool as it sounds.

    Summary

    It seemed like a long way down. Well, to him, at least. Maybe it wasn’t. But it very well could’ve been. To most angels, the thought of the fall was terrifying, others thought of it as just a cannonball into a pool. But not a pool of water, one that is ready to cool anyone off on a hot summer’s day. No, a pool of lava. Lava and fire- scarier than that of a house fire, or a volcano eruption. But this wasn’t just regular lava and fire, it was hellfire; something that could burn the purity of an angel in a fraction of a second.

    A Pre-Fall/Post-Fall fic of the Demon Crowley and the mourning of the Principality Aziraphale.

    Summary

    The forces of Heaven and Hell have been exiled from the Earth, except for Aziraphale and Crowley. Now there's nothing stopping them from being together... unless you count Crowley's past trauma, Aziraphale's millennia of conditioning, the Antichrist needing their help to find his birth mum, Crowley's naked ex-girlfriend, Anathema demanding that someone do something about the terrible state of the afterlife, and the ever-vigilant eye of God. A Good Omens sequel featuring several original characters, a sprinkling of smut, attempts at humor, quite possibly too many footnotes, and even more sacrilege than the original.

    Summary

    Crowley knew that the next great battle would be between an allied hell and heaven, against the whole of humanity.
    And yet here he was, leading the charge, with an angel by his side.

    Leading an army of humans against his own etherial people.

    This should be fun.

    Summary

    In the beginning God created Angels and then took a wine break. She then let them loose in the garden of animals. This was perhaps a bad idea.

    This is inspired by some plurk conversations I had with a plurk friend (Thanks Skree!) about the Good Omens Angelic hosts. When you love trash pigeons but also those trash pigeons are not only probably incredibly socially mal-adjusted but also martial creatures who need a bit more of a firm hand from their boss. Or more time with their “mom”.

    Essentially, you know you’re the bad guy when you piss off the guy who would probably forgive you if you did ANYTHING ELSE besides try and kill him and his lover.

    Summary

    Aziraphale isn't completely oblivious, but he IS an Angel, which means there are expectations. But those seem less and less important as the end of the world arrives and departs without ever really touching down.

    Summary

    There’s always a catch, and ours is that God quite likes playing games- setting up all the pretty little pieces and then sitting back to watch what might unfold. And of course, playing games with the universe is only amusing if the universe is, in fact, possessed of a somewhat stochastic nature. Otherwise, everything would only ever happen exactly the way She expected, and where would the fun be in that?

    So it was that certain of the angels were blessed enough to receive an ample helping of Her own curiosity, creativity, and mischievousness. An angel with more than their fair share of these particular gifts3 would exist to ask questions because it was the will of the almighty Herself. And that leaves us with a question of our own: what exactly is an all-knowing God curious about? And if it turns out that the answer is Falling, and falling, into and out of, from and through, in all its many and varied iterations- well. Would you really be surprised?

    3Perhaps, for the sake of argument, a certain lovely rainbow-hued snake of prodigious size and possessed of truly spectacular wings for instance. Let’s call him Raphael, shall we?
