    Summary

    Set during S02E07. After investigating suspects all day in Sandbrook, Hardy and Miller agree to have one night where they don't talk about the trial or the case. Predictably, they end up saying a lot of things better left unsaid.

    Despite the angst, this one ends on an optimistic note.

    Set post-season 3. It isn't the pub that was the problem, he'd just rather they were alone.

    An ending this shipper heart would have preferred.

    It could've been like this, with them still bickering but mostly missing the ghosts of other people in their life and filling that space. They end up realizing that they might just need each other, after all, though and not a replacement for someone else.

    Summary

    “Oh. Well. You were making noise.” The way he says it, it’s as if, to him, that explains everything. “And you thought…what? Better smother me?” (mid-s2e4, sharing a bed, naturally.)

    He’s still staring at her, her hand is still on his chest, and it doesn’t feel sexy, it’s not that sort of thing, not a seduction, but she…she sort of wants to kiss him.

    Summary

    Saving the world is exhausting work. With Heaven and Hell off their backs, it seems as good a time as any for Crowley and Aziraphale to take a proper break. Neither one of them predicts the direction their holiday takes.

    Who'd have thought that sharing a cottage in Scotland would be quite so romantic?

    Bookmarker's Notes

    When Beelzebub and Gabriel lay out their options, Crowley and Aziraphale decide to give up their powers. No more miracles. They go to the Isle of Skye instead on a well-deserved holiday. There's a game of Scrabble, soft Crowley, burnt cupcakes, a Golden Retriever, only one bed, idiot husbands at the beach and kissing in the rain.

    The author has their voices spot-on, the whole writing seems effortless and has just the right amount of bickering, softness, pining and sexy times.

    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.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    They're celebrating winter solstice (not Christmas) in Lower Tadfield, lots of presents are exchanged. It's the best kind of fluff mixed with mutual pining, being mistaken for a couple (hence only one bed), thoughtful conversations in the dark and finally moving in together. They're both bastards and terribly soft.
