    A collection of my attempts at answering the prompts so kindly provided by the phenomenal drawlight, December 2019.

    Each work is independent of the others (just in case you're wondering at the lack of continuity).

  2. Summary

    A look into a world where Crowley has confessed his love for Aziraphale through a collection of plant-based tattoos, which weren't originally intended to be seen (or perhaps they were - it's not as if he'd admit it to himself, when he started).

    Rating is for the second entry in the series; so far, other works are G or T.

    Summary

    They had been sharing a home for almost a year when he bought it. It wasn’t his style, exactly. Like the thieving magpie, he liked to take, to hoard away objects of sentimental value until his old flat became a museum. Each piece held a memory of a moment in time when he had fallen farther for Aziraphale, and he had wandered among them in his cold, grey, quiet rooms and studied them and let himself remember. Always, he came away mourning what had been stolen from him - a confession left on the tip of a tongue, a kiss dying on untouched lips, a brush of hands prevented by half an inch of air - and longing to steal something back in revenge. So, in a way, it was not his style to purchase, to gift. On the other hand, he did understand the language of objects. And, to this particular one, humans had long ago assigned an incredible significance.

    Summary

    It was…intriguing, Aziraphale had to admit. “Curiosity killed the cat,” he told himself sternly. But then, satisfaction brought it back – wasn’t that the rest of the saying? However it went, he could already tell that he would be fretting the night away if he didn’t give in to temptation.

    (Aziraphale discovers that Crowley satisfied his loneliness in the previous decade by posting intimate videos of himself online - videos that Aziraphale himself was never meant to see.)

    Summary

    One minute, Aziraphale is cataloguing some of his first editions, and the next one, he’s leaning against the bookshelf with one hand because he feels like the breath he doesn’t necessarily need (but is nonetheless used to taking) has just been knocked out of him.

    He does not need to hold back his feelings for Crowley anymore. He does not need to hide his feelings for Crowley anymore. They’re on their own side now.

    Summary

    Or: Is That Really All It Took?

    Crowley likes to give Aziraphale things. Food, drinks, rides, whatever, it doesn't matter. It's all worth the praise and the gratitude and those glowing angelic smiles.

    He cannot imagine that Aziraphale would want to return the favor, and doesn't think he should.

    Aziraphale disagrees with that sentiment.

    Summary

    Aziraphale seemed lost in thought for a moment, then cleared his throat and sat up straight in his seat. “Crowley. We need to have a conversation. About the night before.”

    “Last night?” Crowley paused. “What happened last—”

    “No. The evening we, ah,” Aziraphale’s voice sank into a whisper, “switched bodies.”

    Oh.

    …Oh.

    Oh, bugger.

    *****

    After averting Armageddon, Aziraphale invites Crowley out to dinner to make a serious confession.

    The sequel to Taking The Liberty, in which Aziraphale takes advantage of his time alone in Crowley's body.
