    Summary

    “I know you said no to Alpha Centauri, but I figured that Portland is a bit closer so I thought, uh, you might want to, you know, take a road trip?” The demon looked abashed, and Aziraphale suddenly realized what he was asking. Neither of them knew how much longer they had, and Crowley was offering them an escape, even if just for a bit. It might be a mistake to continue fraternizing, and it might be their undoing, but what if... what if it was their saving grace?

    This is a rewrite of the rambling fic that isn't quite going in the direction I like. The old version is still posted, but I think this one is better.

    Summary

    Aziraphale and Crowley survive the Not-Pocalypse and profess their love for one another, but Aziraphale has tremendous anxiety about pursuing a physical relationship with Crowley. He genuinely wishes to move forward, but past fears surrounding touch, intimacy and body image are prohibiting him from acting on what his heart (and corporation) really want. Crowley is ready to go as slowly and carefully as needed to be there for his Angel as they pursue their new "Arrangement" step by careful, sweet step.

    Summary

    Crowley had wondered if the close confines the Fallen had been made to set up in were supposed to be some sort of ironic punishment-through-excess sort of thing. That must be it. The angels Up There must make a frequent practice of casual touch, without the stipulation of being forced into it by circumstance, and the principality missed it since he was on Earth so much of the time.

    Summary

    Crowley has been a constant in Aziraphale's life until he took his 86 year nap. Since he saved the Principality back in 1941, things have been different. Now, its 1958 and Aziraphale finds the times changing too quickly for him to keep up with Crowley. Very loosely based on Grease/Cry Baby.

    UPDATE: I have decided to rewrite this as I have decided to go in a different direction. I will not be posting any updates here, but the link below is for the version I intend to finish. Bear with me, as I think this newer version is going to be better.

    Summary

    When an angel goes six thousand years being told he is doing a mediocre job, eventually that angel starts to believe that he's the one that's mediocre.

    Thankfully Crowley is there to set him to rights with some cocoa and chocolates.

    Prompt: Touch-starved Aziraphale and Crowley fluff.

    Summary

    "You know he needs touch?"

    "Yeah," Crowley says, following Adam's gaze to Aziraphale. "I know. We'll figure it out, he and I. We always do. Eventually."

    Summary

    Inspired by a comic by @usedtobehmc on Instagram. If you review all six episodes, no one touches Aziraphale with any kindness. Given his propensity to visit the barber, his book character's manicures, his propensity for tight-fitting waistcoats and being totally covered at all times, and his love of eating, like many other writers, I came to the conclusion that Aziraphale is touch-starved, and that Heaven is even worse than Hell in many ways.

    CW: mentions of past physical abuse and being touch-starved, as well as mentions of anxiety without mentioning the word.

    Summary

    Aziraphale asks one too many questions.

    What is Heaven to do with their wayward Principality?

    Crowley picks up the pieces.

    Summary

    All they’re doing is holding hands. So why does Aziraphale feel like he’s about to melt in Crowley’s grip?

    The Apocalypse has been averted, and Aziraphale is (mostly) out of Heaven’s control, and finally free to express himself how he wants. The only question remaining is whether or not he can actually manage to do it.

    Summary

    Summary

    He’d gone six millennia circling around the angel, barely ever touching, and that had been fine.

    Well, mostly fine. Probably not at all fine, but at any rate, it wasn’t that the desire hadn’t been there, but…well, he hadn’t really let himself feel it. But then Aziraphale had taken his hand on the bus from Tadfield to London, all exhaustion and relief and new-growing terror over what their respective sides might do next, and even though he knew it had just been the desire to hold on to a friend when everything else had slid away and come undone, something had awoken and refused to go back to sleep. The something ranged from a persistently mewing kitten to a starved, roaring lion—he’d tried for a snake metaphor, because that seemed more fitting for him, but frankly, snakes were a good bit easier to manage than whatever this was. Whatever this was needed near-constant supervision.

    Summary

    “Angels don’t… we don’t touch, Crowley. Ever. I mean, you went to Heaven this morning, you saw what it’s like these days.”

    These days, Crowley thought. Right. It hadn’t always been like that. His memory wasn’t clear, and certainly lacking something for being terminally cut off from God, but he didn’t remember it being so very cold.

    “What are you saying?” he asked.

    “It’s not that I didn’t like it, I swear, it’s just… so much.”

    Summary

    Heaven is cold and lonely. Hell is filthy and crowded. Aziraphale badly needs to be touched; Crowley needs fresh air, and light, and space. They can’t seem to connect on days after they’ve returned from their respective head offices.

    Summary

    They don’t say a word on the bus back to London.

    Crowley is slouched against the window and Aziraphale leans heavily into the unyielding plastic seat, eyes closed as he tries to shove down the anxiety that chased the remaining adrenaline out of his system. Agnes Nutter’s final prophecy is practically seared into his eyelids for how many times he’s read it but he’s still not sure what it means.
