    Summary

    London 1967. A holy water obsession leads to hard decisions being made, capers being planned and favors being returned, even though some angels claim certain demons go too fast for them. But Earth’s time is running short because 6000 years will be here soon. Is it better to love your Enemy from a distance or enjoy a brief relationship with him before the Apocalypse happens?

    Explicit rating is for Chapters 2 and 3, and 4 is probably more on the Mature level.

    (I had '61 in there. I don't know why I put that, but it's corrected now to the right year. Sorry for any confusion.)

    Summary

    London 1941. Everything about Aziraphale and Crowley’s friendship could change because of one gullible angel, some Nazi spies and a demon who happens to be in the right place at the right time to save the day and the books. Crowley's actions show Aziraphale he's more than just a casual acquaintance. In fact, Aziraphale realizes that the love of his life is the friend he’s tried to keep at arm’s length for almost six thousand years.

    The Explicit rating is for the last chapter where those two dorks finally Do It. (Well, it's not the last chapter anymore, but the 4th one).

    Summary

    In 1967, Crowley doesn't know it but the holy water gifted to him by Aziraphale was made with the best of intentions and the purest of love. For him and him alone. Over the years, the angel's prayer to the Almighty proves vital for the continued survival of the demon: "If nothing else God, I ask that if he makes to use this on himself, to destroy his own existence, please... please stay his hand." But first, Crowley will have to calm down about what 'going too fast' might mean...

    (Current chapters: modern-setting, Friday before the Apocalypse, the bandstand.)

    Summary

    Dappled Things

    The Germans think you’re a war profiteer. SOE thinks you’re MI5. The neighbours think you’re always good for tea and pastry, and Hell thinks you’ve been Very, Very Naughty. You keep them all spinning, plates on slender rods, dancing among the flying sabres. You twist and dance and if the audience can see your flying sweat - you haven’t missed a step yet. Remember to take a bow when it’s over...

    The Joys of Reading in Bed

    But a little later you turned the lamp off, for you see well enough in the dark and you had company: the Great Tempter, Lord of the Reptiles, the First Fruit Vendor, slithering into your bed for company and Crowley needs his beauty sleep...

    Summary

    Contrary to popular belief, it isn’t hard to make holy water. That doesn’t mean it’s easy, either. It depends on what you need it for.

    Summary

    When in Victorian England, Aziraphale reduces thousands of years of friendship to mere “fraternizing with the Enemy,” one very hurt demon is ready to forget the whole friendship. Aziraphale is never going to truly understand Crowley not just another evil denizen of Hell. Hopefully things are not beyond repair, because not only is Crowley in love with the angel and seriously pining after him, he believes Aziraphale needs to figure out that Heaven is not the Paradise he thinks it is.

    A continuation of the Victorian London vignette in the "Hard Times" cold open. Mature tag is for Chapters One and Two.

    Summary

    Like the cold open of ep. 3, this is moments throughout their shared history, all centering around gardens and flowers... and pining.
    --
    “Bit of a theme for us, wouldn’t you say?” Crowley held out his hand, palm flat. A green stem wove free of the earth, stretching and twirling. Leaves sprouted, emerald and vibrant, before blossoming into a bright white flower. He smiled, voice distant, “Gardens always make me think of you.” [Podfic length: 00:54:14]

    Summary

    Aziraphale didn't expect to get rescued from the Bastille by Crowley. He also didn't expect Crowley to get into a bloody brawl with revolutionaries while they had lunch. Nor did Crowley expect Aziraphale to get drunk and try to get into his breeches later that night while they drank on the roof of Notre Dame.

    A continuation of the Reign of Terror vignette seen in the third episode of the miniseries done in three chapters of 1000 words each. (Actually four in this case because of an alternate ending written for the friend who betaed this.)

    Summary

    Some time after the flood, an angel was sent to deliver a message to a man named Abraham, telling him to take his son up to the mountains and kill him.

    Had the angel not first procrastinated in the same inn where a particular demon happened to be spending the evening, that might very well have been what happened.

    But Aziraphale did.

    Summary

    Being an account of how the Demon Crowley, Serpent of the Garden of Eden, fell in love with Principality Aziraphale, Guardian of the Eastern Gate, and a correction of the account of the same event timeline regarding the Principality Aziraphale, an extraordinarily biased account which left out all of Aziraphale’s best moments in a fit of misplaced humility.

    Summary

    “You were walking in the church,” the angel murmurs, easing out of the passenger seat with the bookbag clutched in his arms. “My dear, your poor feet. Come in and I’ll wash them.”

    “Yeah, nah,” you say, shutting the car door behind him. “I’ve got things to see, people to do. Busy, busy, busy.”

    He looks at you again, silent, implacable. “You will come in,” he says, “and I will wash your feet.”

    And when have you been able to refuse Aziraphale anything?

    Summary

    The apocalypse is nigh. Tensions on all sides are reaching a fever pitch, and Aziraphale has never kept a secret from Crowley before... or at least, never one that he’s found the keeping of so hard.

    When tempers flare at the Third Alternative Rendezvous, both angel and demon find themselves confronted with truths that rock their already-crumbling foundations. Will they give up on a relationship that has defied the odds from humanity’s very infancy? Or will they finally realize that the only way to change the course of Destiny is to forge a new path for it to walk?

    Summary

    You're only given the opportunity to use only three miracles. Make the best of them. You have to know that God will not change the condition of a people unless there is a change of what is in themselves. —G.

    Aziraphale was pretty confident that he could do what Gabriel had requested. But that was before he set his wings on the land of America. In the midst of the Great Depression, surrounded by social problems, like food crisis and poverty.

    Wandering and teleporting by using the celestial channel meant that he would not meet another people. Aziraphale didn't think to research about the current state of America.

    Stranded in a small village on the outskirts of Oklahoma, Aziraphale starting his lesson.
