    Summary

    What if 6000 years of mutual pining isn't enough and we get to have more? Supernatural entities can be as oblivious as the rest of us. Sometimes, even more so.
    Or, more plainly put,
    This is going to be the slowest of slowburns.
    Anathema, Adam and Warlock want those two walking disasters getting together.
    Unfortunately, our main protagonists are being rather dense.
    Also unfortunately both Heaven and Hell want to see them punished for what they did.
    Actually, Heaven a lot more then Hell, seeing as angels are being holier-than-thou knobs.

    Summary

    Based on the biblical Book of Tobit from the Apocrypha.

As Crowley sinks ever deeper into despair, Aziraphale is sent on a journey accompanying a human from Nineveh to Ecbatana.

    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

    It's the 1970's, baby. Polyester is in, and so is finding a healthy outlet for 6000 years of repressed feelings for your best friend. Our story starts a few years after Aziraphale tells Crowley he goes too fast. Our favorite demon roams across Europe and America, accidentally becoming both a music producer and a DJ in the process. These two lovestruck fools will eventually work it out, I promise. A slooooooow burn, complete with a disco playlist that will have you saying, "Why the fuck do people say they hate disco?"

    Playlist is HERE and will be updated with each chapter: https://open.spotify.com/playlist/0t911JSMifCB8sXZkGX59R?si=uL6PXU7vTWyRUpNK1nO1pw

    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 is an A-list actor who has been in a bit of a slump over the last couple of years. A.Z. Fell is on the brink of superstardom, but has a reputation as a fuddy duddy. Their managers, Beezle and Gabriel, insist that if they pretend to date each other, it will solve both of their problems. It's only for three months.

    What's the worst that can happen?

    Summary

    You might wonder why Aziraphale can't seem to enjoy his retirement in peace. You could ascribe his distress to the series of terrifying thoughts that haunt his days, or the only book he wishes he'd never read, or even the wound that still hurts after six thousand years.

    Really, though, you should blame the fact he's never learned to talk about his feelings.

    Summary

    Demons were all about fire, death and decay, right? Well, not this one. Not anymore. (Maybe not ever, but especially not anymore)

    (AKA Another One Where Crowley Is Generally Very Fucked Up From The Book Shop Fire/Thinking Aziraphale Died [But Don't Worry, Aziraphale Helps Make It Alright])

    Anthony J. Crowley ha pasado 6000 años de su existencia en la tierra y por supuesto que, para un demonio como él, no han sido nada aburridos.
    Él mismo ha plasmado todas sus vivencias y sentires aquí, en forma de cartas dirigidas a su ángel. Pero, ¿Qué puede decir un demonio sobre la vida y el amor?

    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

    What if it was Crowley that sheltered Aziraphale under his wing in Eden?

    OR

    What if Aziraphale fell in love first and Crowley took a little longer? Or a lot longer...

    Summary

    An angel and a demon dance along the knife's edge of destruction together in an eternal waltz. The demon who had been Aziraphale and the angel who would be Crowley answer to powerful forces that care not for the individual cogs in their celestial machines. This will be their undoing.

    Or:

    Aziraphale is traumatized by Heaven and Hell. Crowley did nothing wrong. Heavy angst. Heed the warnings. Eventual happy ending; you just gotta trust me.

    Crowley appears in chapter 4.

    Summary

    Hell wasn't happy that Crowley hadn't realised the humans were sinning enough to receive the Almighty's Great Flood. It turns out that too many overt sins actually cost Hell souls in the long run. Therefore, he had been keeping an eye on the area, and that is how he notices a certain angel had surreptitiously snuck into Uruk. Interest piqued, he approaches.

    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.

    Summary

    “You can turn back now, Crowley,” the angel is saying, his hands clasped in front of him.
    Why? Is the echo of his human tongue in his head, a slow, persistent voice drawing up from the darkness, did you finally realize that I’m a monster?

    Summary

    "Two nights," Crowley repeats, and he's mostly given up being put off by the whole ordeal. Pretending to be put off. Whatever.

    "Tonight and tomorrow night," Aziraphale says. "The wedding's tomorrow, you remember?"

    "I remember," Crowley says, though he didn’t.

    "I figured it'd be nice to get in and have a day around," Aziraphale explains. "And perhaps a picnic for sunset."

    Aziraphale keeps talking, but Crowley's stuck on the picnic for sunset, about the soft, decades-worn quilt he keeps in the trunk laying between them and the grass, about the cheeses and wine Aziraphale no doubt packed away, about Aziraphale's eyes green and glittering and warm in the fading golden sunlight, and his insides do their best trapeze audition. He's not nearly equipped for such a thing.

     

    Or,
    Crowley's in love with Aziraphale, Anathema gets married, Aziraphale loves The Hobbit, and Tadfield is a good place for stargazing.

    Summary

    Over 6,000 years worth of pushing each other away, Aziraphale and Crowley are now faced with nothing but the raw feelings they harbored for each other for so long. They must each overcome their own self consciousness, self loathing, and strong habit of repressing emotions after millennia of having lived this way.

    Summary

    Wanting what you can't have leads to misery and madness. That much he knows. Yet he cannot shake this feeling that the dreams of this fiery haired man are real. That he exists and that Aziraphale must find him.

    Summary

    Raphael had been the third angel ever created, and he’d raised himself first with Michael’s clumsy help. Then he’d turned around and raised three more siblings, and loved them all so fiercely it hurt. He'd loved Aziraphale too, more than either of them really knew.

    And then, he fell. He lost everything. The bond he held with his siblings was ripped away, leaving an aching, empty void. And while he still has Aziraphale, the angel doesn't recognize the archangel who taught him how to care about the Earth. And Crowley refuses to tell him who he was, or how Aziraphale's voice is the one thing that can soothe the ache in his soul that wants, so badly, to feel a connection again.

    A story through the ages as an angel and a demon come to terms with their shared past.
