    Summary

    Crowley returns to England, and finds his secret conviction that the world was designed for his personal entertainment severely tested by the bloody boring fourteenth century. But what is he a demon for, if not to spice things up a bit? Start some rebellions, get exiled three times in four years, experiment with fashion, cheat at jousts, babysit a six-year-old Queen, that kind of thing.

    It's irrelevant that a certain angel is taking his orders seriously for once and embarking on a life of self-denial and doing good. That isn't the reason Crowley is bored, at all. He certainly isn't acting up to get Aziraphale's attention because he's desperately in love with him or anything.

    Summary

    In the beginning there were two dumbasses... but they don't look how you expect. Because in a universe where the Snake of Eden never fell, who's job is it to tempt the first humans?

    The demon (oddly familiar, but with a scale or two here and there, dusty blonde hair with dirty roots, odd eyes) putters and grins. “Oh good. Truth be told, I’m a little nervous. First big assignment and all.”

    “I didn’t know demons could feel nervous. Is that just your thing, or...”

    Were all angels this conversational? He couldn't remember, but his fellow demons certainly weren't. It was refreshing to hear full sentences, to be asked about himself.

    “Ah, I’m afraid I’m quite unique in that regard... the others would think me daft if I told them.” The demon answers, curling inward a little self-consciously. The angel suspects the other demons would do a little more than pass silent judgement if they found out. He smiles despite himself, while he carefully stirs the surface of blurry, half-formed memories. Tiny ripples warble outwards.

    Summary

    A half-step is all it takes to get Aziraphale close enough to murmur into Crowley’s ear, “Put the light out when you go to bed, and I’ll come to you.”
