    Summary

    Don’t go, she wants to say. Faith on his abilities aside, she’s quite sure that aliens are out of his league. Instead, she casually says, “Told you we shouldn’t go to MoMA.”

    Summary

    “You're good at singing,” he explains a few seconds later and everything stops working.

    It takes a moment for her to make sense of what has happened. One of her Spotify playlists is playing from the speaker and she had gone from humming to singing along without realizing as she made breakfast in his apartment after spending the night.

    She comes to about a dozen realizations in a split second.

    He’s heard her sing.

    She has to break up with him.

    Summary

    ""Can I touch you?”
    “Please, go ahead,” Crowley croaks, wondering if this will be something he will have to provide an explanation to Aziraphale later when he remembers. Or if it will be something they’ll simply never, ever mention again. He might die, in that case. Although he might just die now, too, when the angel raises his index finger and follows the shape of Crowley’s eyebrows reverently."

    Or: Aziraphale gets amnesia and thinks Crowley is his husband when he sees him.

    Summary

    Crowley didn’t remember very much of his time as an angel – consequence of the Fall, and all that. But there was one memory that they had never managed to take from him – and that was Aziraphale.

     

    Or:

    In 6000 years, Aziraphale had never asked Crowley who he’d been, before the Fall. But after the Apocalypse-that-wasn’t, Crowley thought that maybe it was about time Aziraphale found out.

    Summary

    After everything, Aziraphale and Crowley, by unspoken agreement, begin sharing their lives.
    ---
    Why? Aziraphale wanted to ask him, why millennia of the way things were, and now this?

    But while Crowley seemed to have little issue upending every unspoken rule they’d ever written for themselves, Aziraphale was not so flexible, and they had spent thousands of years never quite addressing whatever it was this had stemmed from. Words, Aziraphale had always felt, were for bickering about where to eat for lunch, or hashing out ontological debates, or other trivial nonsense; there was no need to trifle with the imprecision of language, with phrasing and the possibility of being misconstrued, when it came to important matters if the other person simply understood, without needing it said. Six thousand years ago, when Aziraphale had met Crowley on the wall of Eden, watching the first two humans set out to begin the rest of history, something deep within him, more central even than his Grace, had thought, oh, it’s you, and that had been enough for him--for both of them, he assumed--for three millennia.

    However much he wanted to ask, he didn’t know how. The words simply weren’t there.
