    Actual consequences. Genuine remorse. The messy, uneven, gut-wrenching work of forgiveness.

    Stories change. Gods evolve. So long as they are remembered, they do not die.

    Summary

    Someone has unleashed a horde of good (er-possibly OVER) communication fairies on the MCU. Pepper’s convinced that someone’s dosing Tony’s shot glass with a revolutionary new truth serum (because Sodium Pentothal would only make him babble more than he already does). And Steve doesn’t know what happened but even before the serum people were suddenly talking to him (not that he likes what they’re saying but it’s better than being summarily dismissed).

    However the Powers that Be are NOT going to stand for this. If they have to drop an asteroid on Nick Fury’s dog to keep the plot on track THEY WILL DO IT (They’re not sure how the asteroid will help, but gosh-darn, they’re willing)! Whatever it takes, no matter what. Communication will NOT be allowed to get in the way of explosions and action scenes!!!

    To keep things vaguely orderly I’m restructuring as a series with each movie being its own story and each chapter is a scene, possibly (if necessary) followed by a TPTB induced course correction.

    Because it is possible to still have compelling stories and gut-wrenching conflicts without plots based on bad communication. Shocker.

    Summary

    Aziraphale susses out Crowley's pre-Fall identity, as the Archangel Raphael. With this, he must rethink everything he thought he knew about the last six thousand years, about his own identity and his friend's, and even the Ineffable Plan. There is a fight, expressions of fear and hurt, reconciliation, yearning and confusion, and the sorts of questions that by all rights should cause an angel to Fall.

    Also, at one point, Crowley admits he once lied about breeding rats for demonic ends.
