    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.

    Summary

    Peter had been noticing it; Neal didn’t sleep, he didn’t eat much, he didn’t crack jokes sometimes even with the window for one wide-open and clear for him. Even Peter’s “I can do whatever I want with you” crap that he was always tossing out at him didn’t get the same reaction that it once had. When he said things like that, Neal’s face went blank and he didn’t say anything. He didn’t get mad about it, didn’t even get his feelings hurt. Peter had been dropping a few hints here and there about Neal’s health lately, but hadn’t yet come right out and said anything. Neal figured it was because, no matter what was wrong with him, he still did the work. Maybe he didn’t give Peter enough credit, but sometimes he figured Peter didn’t deserve much credit. Neal counted on him leaving him mostly alone as long as he wasn’t off his game, and he wasn’t.

    Summary

    I am the one who arranges the tags
    That are put on the works and fall into bins.
    They come down, and I wrangle them round,
    And then I canonize or make them syns.
