    Summary

    Aziraphale goes to counseling/therapy with an unnamed therapist and spends some time exploring his feelings related to love, loss, and family.

    Note that this is an imagined counseling session, and so may bring up uncomfortable feelings, regardless of how many tags I place, especially if you have the unfortunately common experience of feeling unloved by your family, or unworthy of love. Nothing graphic happens except a reference to Pompeii, though.

    Summary

    Aziraphale put his manuscript aside, instruments perched daintily on a knock-off Charles and Diana commemorative dish by an artist who couldn’t seem to decide whether he was painting the Princess of Wales or a young Aled Jones. “I believe the general consensus is that the fun of sexual activity is to enjoy climax, not to be deprived of it,” he said.

    “Well, you would think that, angel.” Crowley stood up, unfolding himself in a sinewy deployment that Aziraphale followed with his eyes. “A right little hedonist you are, if ever I saw one.”

     

    (Or: Aziraphale and Crowley try something new. Crowley learns to ask for what he wants.)

    Summary

    Far from any city, near the Scottish coast, Tadfield College has a celebrated history, an unrivaled academic reputation, and two departments at war. When the Biology and English departments are forced to share a building, Senior Lecturer and botanist Anthony Crowley finds himself drawn into the orbit of the polite but strange English professor, Dr. Aziraphale Fell. As the new term begins, two academics navigate the politics of both their offices and academia, and try to solve the puzzle of one another.

    Summary

    Hanahaki Curse (花吐き病 (Japanese); 하나하키병 (Korean); 花吐病 (Chinese) is a disease in which the victim coughs up flower petals when they suffer from one-sided love. It ends when the beloved returns their feelings (romantic love only; strong friendship is not enough), or when the victim dies.
    Tears splattered the ancient book; what a cruel fate thought the angel, he, a pure being of love, was doomed to die because he loved one who wouldn't and couldn't love him back.
    Coughing again Aziraphale pressed the petals between the pages of the book and wondered how long it'd take for an ethereal being to die.

    Summary

    Love is poison to any demon who feels it. Crowley's used Hell as the antidote these last six thousand years. He can't do that anymore, for reasons having to do with a certain apocalypse-that-wasn't. Things spiral helplessly from there.

    (Crowley feels the weight of a new impending deadline, time marching toward his own personal end. Aziraphale frets whenever Crowley lets him and feels utterly powerless in the face of this--whatever it is. He doesn't know. Crowley won't tell him.)

    Summary

    Aziraphale looked away, and poured himself another drink. “In any case, that looked unpleasant and I’m sorry to hear that’s a regular occurrence for you.”

    Crowley felt weird, like he wanted to yell and punch a wall and cry and hug Aziraphale all at once. He settled on being defensive. “Oh, save it. You probably think it’s what we demons deserve for our wickedness.”

    Aziraphale’s gaze turned serious. “You don’t deserve that, Crowley,” he said, quietly but firmly.

    Summary

    As all Angels should, Aziraphale loves all of God’s creations, and She had many ones that are easy to love. So, as an immortal, it is impossible to go through existence without feeling the loss of them. The emptiness. There have been a handful of people, animals, even places, that have been lost to time that he has mourned.

    But this?

    This is a grief that Aziraphale is sure that not even Hell could imagine. A grief that Aziraphale would have believed only came with the feeling of losing one’s Angelic wings in a fall. A grief that he would never experience.

    Summary

    Today, the world is going to end. Armageddon is here, in a couple of hours. Demons are after Crowley for misplacing the antichrist, Aziraphale is in the middle of an exorcism - will they make it out alive and finally confess their feelings for each other?
    In other words
    An AU where Aziraphale sidesteps the portal to heaven and stays on earth, finding the puddle of Ligur on the ground and assuming it's Crowley, while Crowley is in the flaming bookshop, assuming Aziraphale is dead.

    Summary

    Like the cold open of ep. 3, this is moments throughout their shared history, all centering around gardens and flowers... and pining.
    --
    “Bit of a theme for us, wouldn’t you say?” Crowley held out his hand, palm flat. A green stem wove free of the earth, stretching and twirling. Leaves sprouted, emerald and vibrant, before blossoming into a bright white flower. He smiled, voice distant, “Gardens always make me think of you.”

    Summary

    Post-Apocalypse-That-Wasn't, Aziraphale and Crowley should finally be able to relax and enjoy the fruits of their labour. The Universe has other plans.

    In an incredibly unexpected turn of events, Aziraphale Falls, Crowley Rises, and each are told that the other has been destroyed. Pain and misery ensue. Crowley struggles through his continued existence, working to honour his angel's memory in any way he can. Meanwhile, Aziraphale, upon escaping decades of torture at Hell's hand, has his own thoughts on how to honour his demon's memory, and it's not going to be pretty. Not at all.

    Warnings for a dark tale with lots of angst, pain, and suffering (but because I'm me, there will likely be a 'happy' ending...we'll just have to see how it goes).

    This is a Reverse/Revenge story based on the wonderful artwork of Masao Micchi - check her out on Instagram and give her some love! https://www.instagram.com/masao.sketch/
