    Summary

    "In plain terms, Mr. A. Fell was a man of impeccable conduct and unusual habits, and in a similar manner to many of whom bore the first two traits, he must also take up the third: dire loneliness. Yet it had not always been thus. Indeed, there once was a time when it seemed as if he should never know solitude or want of suitable company for the rest of his days, but the circumstances by which Aziraphale might have unwound the knot that now bound up his heart had long since dragged themselves, mortally wounded, to die in the shades of regret. Their ghosts hung in his past, growing in consequence with the singular passing of each year until they eclipsed even the death of those who had the foremost hand in their making, and had the effect of separating the sequence of his days of into a gentle, blooming Before, whose painful beauty made the egregious scars of the After that much more appalling."

     

    What Aziraphale does not know is that, from across the ocean, Mr. Anthony J. Crowley is returning to England with his newly aquired wealth, wanting nothing more than to rebuild his life after a terrible shock and, perhaps, discover why he had been abandoned by his fiancé ten long years ago.

    Summary

    The rain, having just been invented and not entirely used to being yet didn’t last all that long. Once it was done, Aziraphale took his leave. Crawly watched him fly away, and it was a testament to his self-control that it wasn’t with an awestruck expression.

    Yes, please – please, he thought, please, despite never having used the word before as a demon and not having much use for it before he Fell either. Yes, please, I want that one.

    Summary

    “who were you? before you fell? i don’t… i don’t remember you.”

     

    the stars, transcendent, splay across his fingertips. novas borne from his breath. newborn suns suckling at the white of his wings. carving moons from the flesh of the universe. samael, smiling, glittering, his wings big bangs.

     

    “no one important,” crowley mutters.
