    This was honestly one of the most beautiful, heart-wrenching things I've ever read. I read it, and then I managed to wait a week, and then I read it again, absolutely unable to resist feeling this churn of emotions all over again. The depiction of pining was so intense - all the little ways a hidden affection leaks through, despite all the attempts to hide it, the way it's ever-present underneath everything, and the soft, but explosive way it's finally expressed - it drove a fucking javelin through my soul with its accuracy. And somehow, the characterizations remain so natural throughout, it's impossible to tear your eyes away.

    Trust me, guys. This is a masterpiece.

    Summary

    After everything, Aziraphale and Crowley, by unspoken agreement, begin sharing their lives.
    ---
    Why? Aziraphale wanted to ask him, why millennia of the way things were, and now this?

    But while Crowley seemed to have little issue upending every unspoken rule they’d ever written for themselves, Aziraphale was not so flexible, and they had spent thousands of years never quite addressing whatever it was this had stemmed from. Words, Aziraphale had always felt, were for bickering about where to eat for lunch, or hashing out ontological debates, or other trivial nonsense; there was no need to trifle with the imprecision of language, with phrasing and the possibility of being misconstrued, when it came to important matters if the other person simply understood, without needing it said. Six thousand years ago, when Aziraphale had met Crowley on the wall of Eden, watching the first two humans set out to begin the rest of history, something deep within him, more central even than his Grace, had thought, oh, it’s you, and that had been enough for him--for both of them, he assumed--for three millennia.

    However much he wanted to ask, he didn’t know how. The words simply weren’t there.

    Absolutely beautiful, comforting, and soft. I loved every word of this, and it feels like home.

    Every word sounds like a note in a classical piece, and I'm in love with it. The characterization is magnificent, the emotions are powerful - everything I could ever wish for.

    Subtle and yet intense, full of caring and softness - I couldn't tear my eyes away. It was wonderful.
