    Summary

    '“It’s all so much, Lord. To feel. Will it get easier?”

    A crease formed in the Almighty’s brow, the first crease to ever form there, and Her approximation of a mouth shifted down, down, down.

    “No, it won’t,” She told him, sounding almost sorry about it. “Not for you.”'

    ---

    Aziraphale had been made wrong. That was the only way he could explain it. None of the other angels fidgeted with their robes or fussed over the texture of their food. (None of the other angels even ate at all, which just reinforced the truth, as Aziraphale saw it.)

    He was not a normal angel.

    Summary

    “Not to worry”, Gabriel told him. “So you let in a demon who tempted the humans to sin! On top of that you lost the flaming sword. It’s really my fault — I should have known it would be too much of a responsibility for you! Earth is, after all, not for the lesser angels. I mean, it’s Her Great Plan! Visiting Earth is a virtue, and you weren’t up for the task. No harm done!”

     

    And so it came to be, that Aziraphale was never to go to Earth again.
     

    ***

    After millenias of watching Earth from above, Aziraphale decides to sneak down.

    Summary

    Turns out following the same pair of humans around, unable to talk to either of them, was bound to get boring. Crawly decided to take a little detour. It was a surprise to find himself right where he started.
    It was an even bigger surprise when he found a friendly face there. This could be a fun game.

    ---

    The Garden, as it had been back then, was just as beautiful. He didn’t need to stay for long to appreciate the intense calmness of the foliage among the striking brightness from outside. And among the vibrancy, there were other splashes of colour; colours which he didn’t have a name for. It was exciting. He couldn’t help the smile tugging at his lips as he sauntered around the vegetation.

    Summary

    Aziraphale, caught between Heaven and, well, Crowley, attempts a little self-expression through fashion. Heaven doesn't like that. But Crowley does.

    Or, the origin of Heaven's Dress tartan.

    Summary

    A collection of my first Good Omens fics, written in August 2021. All written in first person following a list of prompts on tumblr as a challenge for myself.
    Written only with my knowledge of the first three episodes and fics which spoiled me the ending --I had also not read the book back then either-- so I may have missed/gotten wrong a few details I hadn't yet been subject to.

    Summary

    "No, Crowley," he spat, chest heaving. "It's too late. You were right." He pressed the blade against Crowley's throat with the utmost gentility, smiling wickedly at the small whimper he released, and the angel said, "We are fucked."

    Summary

    When Crowley woke up and saw a stranger in his bedroom, he did the only reasonable thing. He jumped so hard he fell out of bed, and swore loudly.

    "You were an angel once," Aziraphale said softly.

    "Well, I happen to know you were a demon once, too," Crowley replied.

    Summary

    Crowley and Aziraphale were able to stop The End of the World, but didn't see what would come afterwards.
    Aziraphale has lost his memory, and Crowley doesn't know if it's Heaven or Hell or something else entirely. All he can do is try and help Aziraphale regain an idea of who he is by telling him stories from their past together.

    I had a dream where I was watching season 2 and wrote this.

    Mr. Cortese doesn't much care for his immediate superior, the Principality Aziraphale. He can't exactly refuse an interview with him, though.

    Summary

    Crowley hasn't gotten drunk.

    At least, not around Aziraphale. In his experience, bad things tend to happen when he losses control.

    Summary

    God's a bit tetchy, and She always has been. She never thought She'd have to punish Her own angels, not after the Fall. What to do with a Heaven whose system doesn't work anymore? When She decides some restructuring is in order, Aziraphale's life gets decidedly more complicated.

    Aziraphale just wishes someone had given him a warning instead of throwing him straight off the deep end.

    Crowley, for his part, really just wants Heaven and Hell to leave them both alone, but with angels and demons knocking at their door, the stakes have never been higher.

     

    OR--that time God said 'fuck it all' and decided to restructure Heaven.

    Summary

    “Kind?” Crawley grinned wickedly, “Oh, I’m not kind, angel. You know that.”

    Aziraphale blinked rapidly again, “Oh, I-I know. I know. That- you. You’re a demon.”

    He laughed, “Is that a question, angel? Forget our rules already? I wasn’t even gone that long.”

    “You left me,” Aziraphale spoke and the world around him warped a little, “Alone. With thirty children!”

    Summary

    Aziraphale is far from perfect, he knows that. He's been told as much, many times. A pathetic excuse for an angel. He's always stood out. So when Crowley's warm hands slide along Aziraphale's sides, when he calls Aziraphale beautiful, looks at him with so much hope and admiration, how can Aziraphale resist?

    Summary

    It is after the failed apocalypse, and Aziraphale is struggling. No longer affiliated to Heaven, and thoroughly disillusioned with his former employers, he descends into a very troubled state of mind. Can his demonic counterpart offer anything to help lift his friend out of his low mood? Are you joking? Of course he can!

    Summary

    We all know Crowley “isn’t nice,” but it seems that Santa Claus has a different opinion, much to the demon’s annoyance. Somehow for years he’s ended up on Santa’s “nice” list. Aziraphale, on the other hand, has a secret that not even HE knows about…
