    Summary

    Aziraphale firmly told himself he would not make such a maudlin spectacle of himself any longer.

     

     

     

    Fine, then. He loved. Crowley did not.

     

    They were husbands nonetheless, in nothing but name; strangers apart from their wordless shared evenings and some polite conversations on occasion.

     
    Love would not - could not - change a thing.

     

    Marriage, especially the arranged variety, is an enterprise wraught with pitfalls; moreso, Lord Aziraphale Fell is quickly learning, when hearts become involved.

    Troublesome things, really, hearts.
    Only fit to break...

    Summary

    Adam Young was meant to be the Anti-Christ. His entire purpose was to cause the end of the world. In many ways, he was the Chosen One, albeit for a rather dark path. But he was raised completely human and normal, without any unusual expectations of him beyond being a regular boy. He remained unaware of his heritage or destiny until the very end. And though he was chosen, he did not accept his role and rejected it and his connection to Lucifer.

    Warlock Dowling was not chosen. He was born as an ordinary child, with no special skills or powers. He should have lived an average life. But he was raised with certain Expectations. Occult and ethereal entities Expected him to be the Anti-Christ. He was not chosen or fated for such a role, but reality tends to bend a little when angels and demons have Expectations.

    The apocalypse may have been averted, but not everyone is relieved. Heaven and Hell may not believe that they can execute the traitors, but they also cannot let Aziraphale and Crowley go unpunished. Unfortunately for them, two not-quite-so-normal boys have some rather strong opinions on the topic.

    Summary

    For three centuries, Crowley has been reincarnated over and over as a human with no memory of his past. Aziraphale has tried to find a way to restore him to his true self, but all he seems to do is hurt them both. This time, he only means to steal a brief moment when he walks into Crowley's flower shop. But Crowley can't let it go...

    Summary

    “You should come with me," he said, the words out of his mouth before he could even think about them. That was enough to make Ezra turn to him.

    “Beg your pardon?”

    “You should come with me,” Crowley repeated. “Let’s leave. Do not linger to watch the charred remains, there’s no need to hurt yourself so. Just come with me. We can leave right away.”

    Ezra blinked, gray eyes moving about to take in Crowley’s expression.

    “…Yes," he replied, almost a whisper, and yet firm.

    Crowley took his hand, and Ezra followed, pliant. They disappeared into the red night, never to be seen again.

     
    Aziraphale never quite made it to live his life with the name he was given, but that does not mean that fate won't still push him toward a very specific Demon.

    Crowley is mostly confused by this creature's entire existence, and yet is inexplicably pulled toward him.

    They make it work. Sort of.
