    Summary

    There is an eye watching over us, listeners. It hangs above in the moonless sky—yes i know, listeners, that thing up there, that looks like the moon, but that is not the moon—and the eye does not blink. It does not look outward,, no, this is the eye that views our interior, our dreams, the deep cracks and crevices of our souls where we hide our darkest fears. It watches. And it records.
    And it’s British! Oh, it’s great to see that the Night Vale Tourism Board initiatives are working and that visitors aren’t being put off by our, ahem, TOTALLY NORMAL mortality rate.

    But anyway. To our new friend: Welcome… to Night Vale.

    Summary

    Crowley and Aziraphale find themselves in the court of the Sun King, Crowley a maid and Aziraphale a noble lady. The restrictions of class cause Crowley to take the role of Aziraphale’s lady’s maid so they might catch up and make sure that their arrangement isn’t in jeopardy. Thousands of years of pining and longing are forced to the fore as Crowley finds how heavily Aziraphale relies on her maid.

    Summary

    "If Eziraphael has come to be known--in today's language--as the 'guardian angel of sad queers,' then it makes sense for him to have shown up more regularly in the past once that became a recognizable historical category."

    Natasha is really glad that she's given this talk enough times to be able to do it on autopilot, because those two funny-looking men in the back just made the most absurdly astonished faces.

    He hadn’t expected a sudden lapful of angel.

    “Very sorry about this,” Aziraphale said, and kissed him.
