    Summary

    As soon as Aubrey Thyme, psychotherapist, had opened her office door and seen her new client, Anthony J. Crowley, sitting in her waiting area, she was observing and assessing him. At first glance, she paid attention to the following:

    --His clothing was expensive and stylish;
    --He wore very strange but noticeable cologne;
    --His relationship to the seat he occupied could only, very loosely, be described as “sitting;”
    --He looked angry;
    --He was wearing sunglasses.

    What Aubrey Thyme, a professional, thought, upon first seeing her new client was: you’re going to be a fun one, aren’t you?

    Summary

    It burned, the first time he came up from hell to earth. He was surrounded by the Almighty’s creation, and as he slithered through the Garden the touch of it was like fire against his scales.

    The angel was worse: imbued with Their Holy Light, a fiery sword clasped in his hand as he guarded the eastern gate. Crowley could barely look at him. He was curious, though, so despite the burn of the wall against the souls of his feet, and the searing Light against his eyes, Crowley sidled up to the angel for a conversation.

    Summary

    “Darling,” Aziraphale answered. “I’m here.” His hand stroked through Crowley’s hair, teasing out the snarls of red that tangled around his fingers, matted with sweat and knotted where Crowley had thrashed his head against the pillows. “Can you turn over for me, love?”

    Weakly, Crowley’s eyes flickered down, and he saw the angel blushing, as if now, suddenly, of all things, he had succumbed to reticence. He was sat back on his knees, legs under him, belly and thighs wet with come, and the soft accordion folds of him were dewy with sweat and moonlight.

    His heart constricting somewhere in his useless chest, Crowley turned over, and spread his legs.

    Summary

    A plant grows, a plant dies, Aziraphale takes a wrong turn, and a few truths are revealed. The first of which is this; painful truths cannot be buried for they will sprout and flourish while one is busy having lunch and raising supposed devil-spawn. From this, each of our heroes takes a single lesson; Aziraphale learns that it is better to never bury truth in the first place and Crowley learns the altogether less palatable lesson that truths should be mulched into nothingness when one has the chance, lest they regrow.

    I will leave it up to you, dear reader, to decide who is correct.

    (aka: post-Apocalypse Crowley finally deals with the issues he's been ignoring for the last 6000 years)

    Summary

    This is a live example of how an author can create linked footnotes in their work with only a little bit of HTML and no workskins required. This is best viewed by clicking "Entire Work". While I've included the actual coding in bold and italic once you click "Hide Creator's Style", there's a more detailed explanation here.

    EDIT 6/28/17: The third chapter now shows how to use anchor links as an index/table of contents.
