    Summary

    John, devastated by the events at Reichenbach, decides to move on with his life by taking a beautiful young lady to be his wife. Sadly, she has a fixation with Spiritualism and seances, and she talks him into summoning the ghost of his dead friend, Sherlock Holmes. He doesn't quite know what she managed to summon, but the thing now inhabiting her body - they call me Crowley- says he knows where the real Sherlock is. They take off together for Paris, one ex-army doctor and one demon-possessed woman.

    Meanwhile, in Paris, using the name Sigerson, Sherlock is searching for the final clue that will end Moriarty's old web of crime. He is assisted by 'one of Mycroft's agents', a man named Fell, who seems more into playing guardian angel than actually investigating anything. Their inquiries take them to the hottest spot in Paris, the Moulin Rouge, where anything, anything can happen.

    Summary

    How can he make the humans happy? Everyone was so busy making money, they had no time to celebrate. Maybe a nice holiday will help them, a way to get to know and love their neighbors. That kind of thing has always been Gabriel's favorite. Yes, a nice, relaxing evening, with children dressed up as their favorite characters, asking politely for healthy food. Sounds like the perfect plan.

    Summary

    Aziraphale frowned. "What you’re saying, then, is that discorporating you would cause more temptations in the end?”
    “That’s exactly what I’m saying. Not to mention, they’d be better quality, more efficient temptations. And possibly more violent. A lot of Demons really enjoy that sort of thing.”
    “And you don’t?” asked Aziraphale, softly.
    “Oh.” Crawly blinked. “Erm. No, I mean, I really like violence. Big violence-er, me. Always calling for more violence in Hell. I like a good flaying, y’know. All that. Screaming. Er.”
    “Indeed,” said the Angel.
    Bless it.

    -

    This story follows Aziraphale and Crowley's experiences from Eden to the failed Apocalypse, with one scene per decade, every decade, for the entire 6,000 years. I drew predominantly from show canon, with elements of book canon, as well as Biblical and historical inspiration.

    "Oh my god," one of the divers whispered, staring through the bathysphere's tiny window at the massive pool of flesh half hidden in the murk. "What is that?"

    Summary

    I thought it would be fun to write a series of little vignettes about the floriographic symbolism of the plants Crowley chooses for his cottage garden, and then centuries of pining happened. I'll show myself out.

    Summary

    In 1941, Crowley saves Aziraphale's books, along with his corporeal form. That night, Aziraphale realizes he's done pretending he's not in love. But love between an angel and a demon flies in the face of the Status Quo, and neither Heaven nor Hell will stand for such a threat to their authority. To make an example of them, Gabriel and Beelzebub collaborate on a punishment much harsher than mere execution.

    What happens when Crowley and Aziraphale are allowed to keep their lives, but not their memories?

    Based on the meme/concept, "What if their punishment was forgetting each other?"

    Summary

    Elsajeni's summary:
    "Looking like that?" Crowley says, and the Aziraphale of his imagination, rather than huffily miracling a more appropriate outfit, glances down at himself and says, "Oh."

    Crowley takes a step towards him, another, closing the distance very, very carefully.

    "That coat, to start with," he says, "not suitable at all. Gold braid, honestly. That—" and his hands are on the coat, and then under it, pushing it back off Aziraphale's shoulders, "—simply has to go."

    After rescuing Aziraphale from the Bastille, Crowley spent seventy years or so in bed. He even told Aziraphale so.

    He never technically said he was sleeping.

    Summary

    What has he missed in world events? What's going on out there— what year is it, even?

    The easy way to find out would be to go and see Aziraphale. Crowley's lip twists at the thought— he's not turning up at the bookshop looking for help, not after the last time he asked the angel for a favor.

    And anyway, if there really is something behind these dreams— something personal— he doesn't fancy bringing it to Aziraphale's doorstep.


    Crowley’s century-long nap was rich with dreams— dreams of Aziraphale, and a domestic life together, and something like bliss. Eventually, though, things in the dream start to go a bit sideways. Hints of war, of subterfuge and chaos. If he can't figure out why, either he or Aziraphale may be in real trouble...

    Summary

    On the night of the near-miss Armageddon, we all know that Crowley and Aziraphale probably spent the night together. As they work through what comes next for them, they also delve into what has come before. Exploration of an episode of fourteenth-century temptation/blessing only now reveals huge implications for them - their relationship, their past, and future!
