    Summary

    In which Crowley has a forked tongue and cannot speak, resulting in 6000 years of misunderstandings, miscommunication, and a discovered secret.

    Or: He’s the principality of deja vu, the rasp of broken laughter, and the song of nightingales outside of windows in the witching hour. He is the guardian of brief encounters after centuries apart, the splatter of turpentine, of unspoken words in soft moments without witness. It frightens him, the way Crowley slinks just outside of his periphery, like trying to hold water in his hands.

    Summary

    6,000-odd years is a long time to evolve a romantic relationship, but as a near-immortal being, Crowley had patience. True, they had lost momentum right around reaching the Speaking Looks and Meaningful Gestures stage, but at the time Crowley had been more or less content to let things idle.

    Now, he was determined to shift things back into gear, and that gear was Explicitly Romantic Physical Expressions of Affection.

    Summary

    Crowley and Aziraphale are both gunning for a kiss under the mistletoe, and it wouldn’t do at all to cheat their way into it.


    Crowley cocked his head. “What in Satan’s name are you doing?”

    “Mending a book,” Aziraphale said, his tone going firm. “It requires patience and focus and not being interrupted.”

    “Why not just, y’know…?” Crowley held up his hand and pantomimed a snap. “Good as new, none of this faffing about.”

    “Some things are worth doing the right way,” Aziraphale reminded him, turning back to the binding.

    Summary

    Aziraphale was expecting to see a talented but otherwise ordinary performance of Les Misérables with a genderswapped cast. Aziraphale was not expecting who came onstage.

    Crowley was expecting an ordinary second night show, because Aziraphale always goes to opening nights, and Crowley never performs on them.

    Except, this once, Aziraphale missed the opening, and came to the second night. Everything else snowballed from there.

    Summary

    “I do miss when you had more hair, it was lovely,” Aziraphale says, studying Crowley meditatively over the top of his book. They’re sitting in the back room of the shop, not doing anything in particular, and Crowley has done absolutely nothing to deserve a comment like that.

    “Ssorry?” Crowley says, startled into half a hiss, because the only reasonable answer is that he was daydreaming or something, slipped off into another world while staring at the ceiling and thinking about nothing, and misheard very dramatically.

    Summary

    A philosophical dive into the nature of Angels and Demons, the human condition, and what happens when Gabriel and Beelzebub become the new representatives on Earth.

    Contains excessive usage of footnotes, old arguments that sound like they're from a college Philosophy class, actual humor somewhere, and another world-ending baby.

    Summary

    There were three things of which Crowley was absolutely certain:

    1. Aziraphale, being an angel, was required to be kind and loving towards all things, even when those things were flawed or sinful or fallen.

    2. Notwithstanding that obligatory kindness, Aziraphale would never, and could never truly love a demon, in any meaningful sense.

    3. Despite this, Crowley was desperately, hopelessly, in love with him.

    Someone keeps buying books Aziraphale wants before he can.

    Crowley frequently gives Aziraphale books as gifts.

    These two things are, of course, entirely unrelated.

    Summary

    The Cold War is ending, and Crowley can’t help but love an angel.


    Aziraphale hummed happily to himself and bustled about, getting out an appropriate tea service and putting a plate of scones on the table. Crowley helped himself to one, nibbling at it while he watched Aziraphale work.

    He could almost see the angel’s halo when he was like this, lost in some pleasant task and content in his labor. So much less fraught, going through rituals like these with no one to see and judge and reprimand if anything wasn’t done to someone else’s standards. The only witness was Crowley, and Aziraphale had made it clear some time ago that if Crowley had a complaint about how Aziraphale made his tea, he was quite at liberty to go home and make his own. No, this was something Aziraphale was doing for himself, because he found it soothing and pleasurable and good, and Aziraphale was practically glowing with it.

    Summary

    To quote directly from the prompt that inspired this:

    Gabriel sensed Aziraphale's feelings for Crowley clear as day during the confrontation at the airbase. Fast forward to the trial in Heaven where he takes "Aziraphale" to task about betraying Heaven and the Great Plan for love of a creature that can't return his feelings.

    Summary

    So far, so dreamlike, the lucid part of Crowley's brain thinks, although the symbolism is a little heavy-handed.

    And then he forgets that part of himself entirely, because the City is on fire, the streets are filled with people screaming and the angel is nowhere to be found. This isn't right, his brain objects, I wasn't here for this bit, I only read about it years afterwards. The surface part of his consciousness pays it no attention because everything is burning and Aziraphale is gone and burning paper is fluttering to the ground around him and his heart is hammering so loudly in his chest he thinks it might burst.
