    Summary

    Aziraphale focused, trying to trace the unexpected strand of love to its source.
    And froze.
    “Crowley!” Aziraphale blurted out, aloud.
    The demon sprang awake and out of his dream with a startled gasp. And just like that, as Aziraphale hurried to soothe and apologize for having disturbed Crowley’s repose, the tendril was gone.

    ~ ~ ~

    Aziraphale and Crowley have long since accepted that, for unknown reasons, Aziraphale's metaphysical love-sense can't pick up Crowley's feelings. Fortunately, it doesn't matter. Because they do love each other, they both know it, and they're content together.

    So why has Aziraphale recently begun sensing something that feels very much like a filament of love coming from Crowley — reaching out of the blue, only to disappear the moment attention is called to it?

    It's a mystery to them both. But whatever is going on, whatever realizations may lie in store, they have each other, they have their dog, and they have their love. They'll be all right.

    (May be read alone or as part of the series. Features fluff, feels, very light mystery, very light angst, much supportiveness, lots and lots of love.)

    Summary

    This story is complete, I’ll update on Monday’s ;)

    Aziraphale thinks that all the abuse and trauma he endured in heaven is ‘love’. After being freed after the apocalypse, the angel is beyond happy. He wants nothing more than to spend eternity with Crowley but the demon is ready to put a name to their feelings. They both know that they care for each other deeply and when Crowley finally has the courage to put it in words (‘I love you’), it sends Aziraphale spiraling into believing Crowley will start treating him like heaven did.

    "We- we don't have to pretend anymore.” Crowley stuttered out, golden eyes looking frantically about the angel. His sunglasses were clutched tightly in the palm of his hand, “The apocalypse is over, it has been for years. Can't we- can't we say it now?" his voice wavered only slightly.

    "I don't love you, Crowley." Aziraphale emphasized each word to better help the demon understand. He had never truly loved something in all his years of existence, he didn’t think he was capable. To love another being — especially Crowley...

    "I could never love you."

    Summary

    Aziraphale had lost track of the days quite some time ago.

    He’d been counting the seconds in his head, before. Heaven was always bright, always lit by perpetual sunlight, and the Room was brighter than the rest of Heaven, too, so it made it quite difficult to keep track of… of…

    Aziraphale had lost track of the days quite some time ago.

     

    Aziraphale is punished by being put in solitary confinement. Eventually, Crowley finds out.

    Summary

    Aziraphale had almost died, almost fucking died, and now he was sharing Crowley's body, his spirit surrounding Crowley, a loving, pulsing presence right in the very heart of him. He had never been this close to Aziraphale before, had never dreamed that it would be possible. He was sorely glad that he didn’t need to breathe, for he wouldn’t be able to manage it with Aziraphale’s presence making him feel drunk and mellow. It was a miracle that he could drive at all. Aziraphale had grafted himself onto Crowley’s soul, the border between them permeable and merging at the edges a little more with every second that passed by.

    Summary

    “Hold on, hold on.” Crowley leaned forward, certain he’d heard right but unable to comprehend it. “Just what are you trying? You’re an angel, not a demon.”

    “Yes, but we’re from the same stock, aren’t we? You can do it, I don’t see why I shouldn’t be able to.”

    “Well, I can do it, but I’ve never actually possessed a body, I don’t know how it works,” Crowley said over the thudding in his chest. Millennia of denying any similarity between the two of them, and now here Aziraphale was, trying to do something unheard of for angels.

    “It can’t be that different from having a regular corporation. Pity I can't inhabit yours,” Aziraphale said with an awkward half-laugh.

    Now that was an idea.

    Crowley straightened up. “Why not?”
