Aziraphale slowly looks from the knife to Crowley’s face. “Holy water.” His voice sounds distant and strange, as if he’s hearing it from outside of himself. “The knife. It’s coated in holy water.”
Crowley’s smile is thin and bitter. “Yes,” he says.
In the aftermath of the Apocalypse, Crowley is just trying to find his feet after losing his day job. Unfortunately for him, not every demon was convinced by Aziraphale’s little show during their Trials—and that disbelief proves to be deadly. Aziraphale just wants to read books and revel in a life of freedom. But when Crowley’s hurt, all of his efforts become a race against time to heal him before it’s too late.

Crowley starts seeing his angel form in the mirror. It starts as a walk-by glance and suddenly disappears. He doesn't know what to do with it, all of those memories were taken away, but they come back to him in pieces, digging up all sorts of things.
Then God appears to him of all people. She says that she forgives him, that she had forgiven him long ago, and that she never stopped loving him. She says that he and Aziraphale are to be the protectors of Earth as they have been for her so far.
Everything hurts, and nothing makes sense- so just another new millennia really.

"After the apoca-wasn’t, time carries on - as time does. Days bleed into months, and months into years.
And through it all, Heaven and Hell remain unnervingly silent.
Crowley and Aziraphale sometimes catch sight of them - angels more often than demons. Not because the demons are any better at sneaking about; there are simply less of them sneaking (between the two, Heaven’s always been the more vengeful). But their watchers - whether angel or demon - don’t go so far as to speak. Rather, they observe - usually from some distance, dark gazes following. Watching."

Ch. 2 A Love Like Moonlight: When Aziraphale is threatened by angels who seek justice for Aziraphale's crimes against Heaven, Crowley comes up with a plan to keep him safe from harm.

Crowley winced and turned around. He squinted at the King of Hell and his two-day stubble and expensive suit and bloody audacity. His Hell-trained survival instincts really didn’t like this.
That ancient part of him who’s known this man-shaped being since he was a hatchling filed away his escape plan for later, however.
Or: Crowley and Lucifer are siblings, and sure, they’re not exactly on speaking terms now, but that doesn’t stop Lucifer from knocking on Crowley and Aziraphale’s door on a Sunday morning, asking for help. Needless to say, it doesn’t go exactly as planned…
[Or or: on relationships, the Throne of Hell, absolution, and the universe's most dysfunctional family—maybe—coming to senses.]

Aka, absence makes the bureaucratic religious corporation grow fonder.
Suddenly, Hell is realizing Crowley did a whole Hell of a lot more than they realized (literally) and Heaven is finding out the hard way that only relying on one field agent was perhaps not the best long term plan. Theoretically, Aziraphale should be easy enough to replace. It’s just that most of their angelic candidates haven't been on Earth since the 50 ADs and can't stop getting discorporated or fleeing back to Heaven within the first five minutes.
As for Hell... well, they were a lost cause from the start. They need their Field Agent back, before Beelzebub gives up and decides to go on a permanent vacation to Majorca.
