    Summary

    Because they can’t see each other more than once every few decades, Aziraphale suggests that he and Crowley write to each other to pass the time apart. As quills for their letters, they exchange wing feathers: a gesture of great intimacy that Crowley is convinced only he perceives the depth of. But time will tell that it’s not just him who sees it that way.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    A sort of behind the scenes version of the beginning of episode three: their relationship across time, distilled in letters and a lovely narrative, so, so intimate and tender. Perfect.

    Summary

    “What did you think would happen?” Crowley demanded. “If you told me? Finding the boy and stopping Armageddon was my idea from the beginning. You had to be talked into it! What did you think I was going to do if you told me you’d found him?”

    “I don’t know!” Aziraphale cried. “You were very keen on killing him—perhaps I thought you would make me do it.”

    “When,” Crowley said, “in the entire course of history, have I ever been able to make you do anything?”


    On the last night of their lives, Crowley and Aziraphale uncover some lies and unleash some truths.

    Aziraphale would give anything to go back and do it differently.

    Crowley will take anything he can get.
