    Summary

    Very quickly, Jonathan weighed the odds. On one hand, potential death, whether by armed bandits, a mummy’s curse, or people who looked like bandits and who were very angry about someone unleashing a mummy’s curse. On the other hand, potential riches, home ground, and topics of conversation other than what happened at school fifteen years ago and who got it in the neck where.

    Summary

    Punching racist idiots in black polo shirts is one way to have a good evening. Having to drag yourself out of the Thames with a concussion isn’t. In other words, Rick goes out for a drink and gets a lot more of it than he bargained for.

    Summary

    For six thousand years, Aziraphale did his best to exist within the strictures of Heavenly conduct. It wasn’t a perfect practice; his relationship with Crowley, just for example, was never exactly what one might call “officially sanctioned,” or even, “particularly wise,” but the important thing was that Aziraphale tried. He wasn’t a very good angel, but he did his best, more or less. Wasn’t that all anyone could really ask of him?

    It doesn’t really feel fair, is the point, that in reward for saving the world, Aziraphale seems to be having something of an existential crisis.

    Summary

    Rick snorts. “They’re not that bad.”

    Wordlessly, Evy looks back over at Jonathan and Ardeth.

    “If you think about it, I'm doing them a favour. Jewellery never looks quite right on dead people,” Jonathan is saying, flicking his wrist in comic disdain. A drop of whisky lurches forcefully from his glass and lands on Ardeth’s thigh, and Jonathan leans forward to pat it dry with his jacket sleeve. “Terribly sorry, old boy. I get a bit animated after a finger or two of the good stuff.”

    Ardeth’s eyes are very, very wide indeed.

    “Jesus, you’re right,” says Rick. 

    After 20 years of being subjected to more yearning than any sister should ever have to witness, Evy decides that enough's enough.
