    Summary

    exploring the profound loneliness inherent to being an immortal among mortals, the poignant connection of having one other being on the earth who understands that feeling, the dull pain of waiting for your only companion to realize what you've always known, the sharp pain of knowing that you both have forever, and that's how long it could take. altogether a pontification on the nature of eternity and immortality and ineffability. snippets of crowley and aziraphale's relationship throughout history, from the Beginning to who knows when.

    Summary

    human beings are not born once and for all on the day their mothers give birth to them, [...] life obliges them over and over again to give birth to themselves. // gabriel garcía márquez, love in the time of cholera

    with a palm full of stars, i throw them like dice / repeatedly, i shake them like dice / and throw them on the table / repeatedly, repeatedly / until the desired constellation appears. // bjork, desired constellation

    i was born the day i thought: what is? what was? and what if? i was transformed the day my ego shattered, and all the superficial, material things that mattered to me before, suddenly ceased to matter. i really came into being the day i no longer cared what the world thought of me, only on my thoughts for changing the world. // suzy kassem, coming forth into the light

    two thousand years ago the night sky looked completely different, and so when you get right down to it, the greek conceptions of star signs as related to birth dates are grossly inaccurate for today's day and age. [...] the reason it's all off kilter? the earth's axis wobbles. life isn't nearly as stable as we want it to be. // jodi picoult, my sister's keeper

    Summary

    it's not the shade, we should be past it
    it's the light and it's the obstacle that casts it
    it's the heat that drives the light
    it's the fire it ignites
    it's not the waking, it's the rising
    // hozier, "nina cried power"

    aziraphale has never been willing to admit that he is awake; he's spent six thousand years pulling the covers over his head and pretending to sleep, or trying to sleep, sometimes he couldn't tell which. armageddon is a wake-up call, and aziraphale struggles to rise, struggles with what comes after.

    crowley has always been awake and mostly comfortable lying in. armageddon is the fire alarm that forces him to rise and to act, but he can't do it alone, and he can't go back when it's over.

    Summary

    oh it
    puts the heart in my chest on wings
    for when I look at you, even a moment, no speaking
    is left in me

    Summary

    i got a man with a slow hand
    i got a lover with an easy touch
    i got somebody who will spend some time
    not come and go in a heated rush
    i found somebody who will understand
    when it comes to love, i want a slow hand

    Summary

    "The proposal itself wasn’t a big ordeal, not like the whole wedding business – Aziraphale bought the ring years ago, and then one night they were in bed, lying on their sides, nose-to-nose, and he couldn’t help himself. He used a miracle to place the ring under his pillow, to make it seem at least a little bit planned, and then he just asked, and Crowley said yes, and they celebrated with certain bedroom activities, and that was that.
    Crowley’s hysteria began first thing the next morning, and it hasn’t stopped since. Aziraphale has picked up on when to respond and when to keep quiet, when he can get away with nodding and smiling and when he has to listen closely, when to let Crowley run wild with it and when to rein him in. He is living in utter bliss, and he is horribly, disgustingly, completely in love."

    Summary

    It's 1975, and one angel and one demon have no idea what will begin in just a few short years. They're living in blissful ignorance, only slightly less than blissful, because they're living the same way they have for the past six millennia. They're certainly living in ignorance.

    Summary

    "The atmosphere was surprisingly comfortable as Crowley and Aziraphale sat with Will Shakespeare, each nursing a strong drink, conversing easily. They all knew what was happening, they all wanted it, and they all knew each other to varying degrees, but one always expected some level of awkwardness with these types of things."

    Summary

    "Being an angel was not so different from being a demon, insofar as the job went. The reports that Aziraphale sent up to Heaven, and Crowley sent down to Hell, were a dull and tedious part of the job, rife with all the arbitrary quotas and bureaucratic hoops to jump through that one could hope for. They were each expected to influence a certain number of people per year, and they were expected to keep records of the time and place and the actions they took, and they were expected to compile a portfolio to submit to their immediate supervisors."

    Summary

    speak of the spring and foison of the year;
    the one doth shadow of your beauty show,
    the other as your bounty doth appear,
    and you in every blessèd shape we know.
    // william shakespeare, sonnet 53

    // rumi

    Summary

    for summer and his pleasures wait on thee,
    and thou away, the very birds are mute;
    or if they sing, ‘tis with so dull a cheer,
    that leaves look pale, dreading the winter’s near.
    // william shakespeare, sonnet 97

    absence makes the heart grow fonder, and crowley and aziraphale’s hearts were plenty fond to begin with. a story told through phone calls while they are separated for work-related reasons.

    Summary

    "Sometimes, after sending another exaggerated report to Hell taking credit for something he absolutely did not do, it made Crowley feel better to have someone who knew him, who knew the truth, assure him that he was not a failure as a demon. And if the sex felt like a punishment sometimes, well, at least he knew he deserved it."

    Summary

    i'm spilling wine in the bathtub
    you kiss my face and we're both drunk
    everyone thinks that they know us
    but they know nothing about
    all of this silence and patience
    pining and anticipation
    my hands are shaking from holding back from you
