    Summary

    An angel and a demon are in the Garden of Eden. They don't have much in common save for two facts; first, they are, neither of them, particularly good at their jobs, and second, they happen to be two of the most anxious beings to ever grace Creation.

    Somehow, they make it work.

    [On the darker side, explores themes of anxiety, self-loathing, emotional repression, disordered thinking, and emotional neglect. But, also; families of blood and choice, adoption, emotional fulfillment, unconditional love, coming of age, and accepting (if not learning to love) yourself as you are]

    Summary

    The angel was a traitor... just like the Demon Crowley. And if they both had both been on Earth for millennia, battling it out, then this angel must be quite strong. Crowley was the Serpent of Eden, after all, clearly incredibly powerful and competent if Hell had assigned him to Earth for so long. So to match Crowley, Aziraphale must also be remarkably powerful and competent.

    But not even incredible power could save an angel from Hellfire. Nothing could. So Aziraphale’s power couldn’t possibly explain why he was so calm, so utterly collected in the face of complete destruction.
     

    [Crowley and Aziraphale's little switcheroo doesn't go entirely unnoticed]

    Summary

    Crowley has been holding out his hand, metaphorically speaking, since the Garden, and Aziraphale is ready to take it - to have and to hold it, for all that entails. Only, he wants to do it right.

    Mother nature has other ideas.

    Or, Aziraphale gets caught indulging a fantasy, and gets the best possible response.

    Summary

    I shall provide you with a choice of summaries:

    In which Crowley and Aziraphale find that they both have business in Oxfordshire. An auspicious meeting follows.
     
    or

    The Bentley vs. Mrs Merdle: who would win?? (I mean, obviously the Bentley, given its occult advantage; but you should read the story anyway.)

    or

    "Peter, what did you mean when you said that anybody could have the harmony if they would leave us the counterpoint?"
    "Why," he said, shaking his head, "that I like my music polyphonic. If you think I meant anything else, you know what I meant."
