    Summary

    Aziraphale wished he could find it in him to relish the lack of mockery and passive aggressive putdowns, but well... it didn’t feel very sporting at the moment. Given what he was about to do.

    “Just pull them out,” Gabriel said. “Don’t miss a single one. You know the drill.”

    Fisting his hand in the first clump of tertiaries, Aziraphale braced his other hand between Gabriel’s shoulder blades and ripped out the feathers.

    Summary

    Set just before the birth of the Antichrist becomes known. Crowley has a new pet and a problem.

    “Hey, no,” he said. “I clean out that tray, I’m not having your little cobblers parked all over my kitchen table.” He remembered something from the How To Care For Your New Cat pamphlet that the pet store clerk had slipped into the carrier on his last visit, got the plant mister and squirted a stream at the cat. It scrambled, scarpered under the couch again, and Crowley felt like the lowest form of life on earth, crawling on his belly – at least that came naturally –- to apologize and wheedle.

    This is making me into a blubbering eejit, he thought. I’m a demon, I’m not meant to be this kind of a soft touch. And then the idea came to him: I know who is. I’m giving this cat to Aziraphale.

    Summary

    “Mr. Crowley, I presume?” Aziraphale asked in lieu of an introduction, which was not forthcoming. The guy hadn’t even removed his sunglasses. Oh God, he had a tattoo on his face. Aziraphale wasn’t one to judge, but… what kind of gardener had a snake tattoo on his face?

    Summary

    Warlock Dowling goes to Cambridge as step one of his long-term rebellion, expecting bad weather and bad teeth and maybe some repressed childhood memories of England to haunt him along the way. What he does not expect is Adam Young.

    (The Antichrist-that-wasn't reveal is kind of a shocker, too, he guesses. The fact Nanny was a demon is less so.)

    ---
    He couldn’t explain how it worked, but he had always shied away from thinking too hard about it, because it felt a tad mystic. A trick his Nanny had taught him, amidst speeches on how to psychologically destroy anyone who stood in his way- if you concentrated very hard and spoke things a certain, darkly motivated way, you could get people to do things. Warlock had never been very good at it, to Nanny’s apparent irritation, though he had tried very hard to follow her lead, very interested in getting people to do his bidding at will. At most he usually succeeded in getting people to stop doing things.
    He’d learnt to do the opposite too, to equally paltry success- persuade. This he couldn’t remember Nanny teaching him; maybe the old gardener had. Yes, it had been him- he’d taught him to do it with animals, as he recalled. It had been more like encouragement than anything else, but he remembered getting the birds to follow him to his room once.
