    “Gandalf,” said the captain, doffing his hat as he stepped within. “I thought you said this place would be easy to find. I was obliged to ask direction — twice.”

    Summary

    It's like having a curtain pulled back on something he wasn't expecting to see. A surprise punch-and-judy at an up-scale restaurant, a lobster thermidor when he's ordered an ale.

    Crowley's gleefully trying to wrap his head around the fact that Aziraphale is speaking Polari. Because of course he is.

    Or: The Patron Saint of London's LGBT Community is real, and he lives in Soho.

    Summary

    He didn’t want to think about the bookshop. It hurt in a way that was entirely too visceral to be angelic, and entirely too earth shattering to be human. It was the love of several hundred years, burned up in an instant. It shouldn’t have mattered, not if he were truly angelic. But he shed a few silent tears anyway and felt somewhat better for it. All things considered, it wasn’t the end of the world.

    No, that had been much more complicated.

    And yet, somehow so very mundanely human. No great battle, no heavenly sounding of horns or hordes of demons. Just a choice, a choice not between Good and Evil, but between darkness and light, hope and despair, fear and… and love…

    Summary

    Jessamine stepped forward, reaching out to place a hand on one of the cold, metal bars of his prison cell. “How could I possibly come to trust you?”

    “You can’t,” Daud answered bluntly. “In your position, Empress of the Isles, you shouldn’t trust anyone, not if you want to stay alive.” He leaned forward, resting his arms on his knees as he looked her in the eye. “But when I’m hired for a job, I do it well.”
     

    When an accident takes Corvo from her side, Jessamine must choose a new Royal Protector, and she's presented with an unconventional candidate for the position.
