    Summary

    They attend the opening performance of Romeo and Juliet, and it hits a little too close to home.
    --
    It all starts out so innocently, “palm to palm” in the first act. Then, it’s nothing but a torturous, slow descent toward heartbreak and oblivion. Aziraphale could see the writing on the wall, and he refused the fate which was playing out before them. Unfortunately, Crowley wasn’t going to understand, and simply could not be trusted to keep himself in check. The soft-hearted demon sniffling at his side was nothing but a liability. It was all going to be up to him.

    Summary

    Based on the biblical Book of Tobit from the Apocrypha.

    Ephesus, 400 B.C. Commanded away from Aziraphale's side by an infernal master, Crowley is forced to use his time-stopping powers for Asmodeus' dirty work while Aziraphale is left wondering why Crowley has disappeared.

    Summary

    Aziraphale and Crowley finally make up from their fight in 1862. But what happens next? Why, more of them dancing around each other of course. But the stakes get higher every time they meet. How much longer can their star-crossed stupidity last?

    Title is a quote from Christine Westover

    Summary

    So I had an idea about why Aziraphale had a complete set of Oscar Wilde writings. And how they had probably left a trail of infatuated and disappointed humans in their wake in all those clubs they'd gone to for intellectual stimulation and a good meal and dance lessons.

    This could happen some time during the later chapters of Ineffable Bastards.

    Summary

    Crowley has never seen the name on Aziraphale's chest. He doesn't know the syllables of it, the shape of the transliterated letters. It doesn't matter. He'd gotten quite drunk once, sometime in the fourteenth century, and asked Aziraphale point-blank if his name was there.

    It was not.

    (He doesn't think about Aziraphale's name on his own chest, growing darker every year.)

    Summary

    Aziraphale puts his hand on top of Crowley’s and Crowley can feel the blood drain from his head. His face feels hot and his eyeballs hurt and the room starts to close in. The last thing Crowley knows is the sensation of his knees hitting the floor as he slithers out of his chair.

    Summary

    Nobody would suspect that Aziraphale, reluctant Principality and fidgety Guardian of the Eastern Gate of Eden, would have a tryst with a demon.
    This is a good thing. It means they’re less likely to get caught.
    “You’re about to say yes, angel,” murmurs the serpent behind him, hot breath against the shell of his ear and hands lost inside Aziraphale’s mint-green silk robe. “I can feel it.” 

    🍎

    In which Crowley and Aziraphale have been sleeping together since Eden and somehow still manage to pine after each other for six thousand years.

    Summary

    "They'll leave us alone, for a bit. If you ask me, both sides are going to use this as breathing space, before the big one."
    "I thought that was the big one."
    "No. For my money, the really big one is going to be all of us against all of them."
    "What? Heaven and Hell against...humanity?"

    The Apocalypse has come and gone, but Heaven and Hell aren't satisfied. They'd tried and failed to enact their revenge once. Perhaps it is time to try a different strategy.

    Summary

    Anthony J. Crowley has spent 6000 years of his existence on earth and of course that, for a demon like him, they have not been boring at all.
    He himself has wrote all his experiences and feelings here, in the form of letters addressed to his angel. But what can a demon say about life and love?

    Summary

    "Go to alpha centauri, for all I care! Go now, this very instant, and never return, do you hear me, Crowley? Never!"
     

    Due to Crowley's firm conviction that "he need never know", Aziraphale has, for all the time they've known each other, been blissfully unaware of the obedience curse Crowley's been looping holes around since 4004 BC.

    You can't really blame him, is the point. Aziraphale had no idea what his unthinking words might do, and is already planning to apologise profusely at dinner...

    ...which might get a little tricky, seeing as Crowley has just been sighted in the vicinity of Pluto, and has concrete orders to never show his face on earth.
    Ever.
    Again.

    Summary

    In 1347, a ship arrives bearing books and news from the east. Aziraphale, a Cistercian monk of Tintern Abbey, travels to collect his books. There he meets a lazy-hipped, red-haired sailor and has the strangest feeling that he knows Crowley, that they have met once. He just cannot remember at all.

    Or, all love stories are ghost stories. And to tell a ghost story, something must have happened before.

    Summary

    Humans tended to find his eyes terrifying. Aziraphale had always expressed the opposite, but Aziraphale said loads of things just to be nice.

    Cracking that exterior was one of Crowley’s greatest pleasures.

    After the near end of all things, Aziraphale and Crowley move forward together.

    It just may take a bit more time, in addition to the 6,000 or so odd years between them.

    The Solitary Sequel (To Never Knowing Anything At all) from Crowley's perspective. Reading it is not at all necessary to understand this fic. This can be read as a standalone entirely.

    Summary

    "Zee?" Juviel said lightly, eyebrows raising at the still-shaking demon. "You'd like to be called Zee for now?"

    Zee nodded solemnly, even though his lip was still doing that wobbling thing, as though the very idea of being called Zee was the most disgusting and grotesque name he could think to call himself.

    "Well, that's all right, then." Juviel pulled away, settling back on his heels. Zee watched him with those wide jade eyes. "I think we'll be good together, bunny."

    They never talked about it.
    Hadn't done so for 6000 years.
    Until they did.

    Summary

    Temptation is meant to follow desire, but desire has no effect where there is only innocent obedience. That is how the Tempter beat Desire to the Garden.

    Love belongs to desire, and desire is always cruel.

    Summary

    Aziraphale loves to read. Crowley, not so much. But one day in the bookshop he picks up Shakespeare's sonnets. It turns out Crowley knew William a bit better than Aziraphale thought.

    In fact, Crowley might know some of those sonnets a little too well.

    For my Ineffable Husbands bingo prompt - Aziraphale's bookshop.
