    Summary

    Aziraphale and Crowley receive an invitation to Anathema and Newt's wedding which includes Anathema's phone number. To be polite, Aziraphale calls to give his congratulations and ends up invited to help plan the wedding! Little did he know it would be his relationship with Crowley that had everyone's attention.

    Or, Crowley is helplessly pining and everyone can see it. Newt tries to help and makes it worse.

    Summary

    “You said something, back in Tadfield, while we were waiting for the bus,” Aziraphale says. “It’s been rattling about in my mind ever since.”

    “If you’re talking about the invite back to my place, that was a shameless ploy to get you to clean up the holy water and what was left of Ligur,” Crowley says.

    It’s a lie – Crowley had been as surprised as anyone to rediscover the remains of his former colleague on the floor of his flat, the night the world didn’t end. What it had been, Aziraphale is sure, was an unsubtle way to say ‘please don’t leave me alone’, a sentiment Aziraphale more than shares. He never intends to leave Crowley alone ever again, if he can help it. He’s had more than enough of that for one eternal lifetime.

    “No,” he says, shaking his head. “I’m talking about something else. You suggested that everything, our prevention of Armageddon included, was perhaps part of the Ineffable Plan.”

    Summary

    Aziraphale looks at Crowley, the beloved furrow of his brow, the way his lips – made for smiling, for laughter, for that indulgent smile when he does something miraculous just to bring Aziraphale joy – twist downward, at the tension in his slender limbs. Most arresting: the saltwater in his yellow eyes, the mist, the ache. They have been here six thousand times, almost: at the eclipse of their orbit, when they are so close they can almost touch, before they move apart again, before one begins to crest and the other to fall away.

    Aziraphale takes a deep breath, and releases it slowly through his nose. No more gravity; no more orbit. In the free fall, the same old laws of motion no longer apply.

    “Then come with me,” he says.

    He could've never even begun to guess the significance of the find.

    Summary

    “Well, this brings back memories,” Aziraphale says eventually, a chuckle warm in his voice.

    “Our first date,” Crowley agrees sarcastically, wriggling to wrap the blanket more tightly around him. It really is soft. “You wore white and a near palpable patina of nervous guilt.”
     
    “I was giving serious consideration to the concept of ineffability for the very first time,” Aziraphale says, with dignity. “It would leave anyone a bit preoccupied. You were so curious, about everything,” he adds, a wistful lilt to his voice that Crowley doesn’t quite understand, though it makes his heart do strange things in his chest.

    Another conversation in the rain, 6000 years later.
