    Summary

    When Crowley and Aziraphale escaped their superiors, free to at last be on their own side, there was one thing they hadn't considered: what if they got discorporated?

    Crowley learns this after being hit by a car. His body is destroyed, and his demonic soul is forced back to Hell. Once again, he is in the hands of those who would happily see him destroyed. But this time, they decide to let it linger, torture him until he begs for extinction. Crowley's only hope for salvation is to accept the deal proposed by his jailor: Oleander, the Poison Demon. That deal? She will help him escape Hell, but only if he agrees to take her with him, and teach her how to live among humans.

    The deal goes off without a hitch...until Hell has an epiphany, and Heaven senses another constant, demonic presence on Earth.

    Summary

    Imagine if James and the Hamiltons got their chance, ever so briefly, to follow their passions, their plans. There is no argument, no politics, no ferrying people away in the dead of night. Instead, as they sail towards hope, the pardons still in hand, the Navy brutally take Thomas' life under bright daylight, in the middle of a vast ocean, and dump his body overboard.

    Thomas is dead.

    They were so close, they were on their way to Nassau, young and naïve and full of hope and determination, and then England said no, and ripped Thomas straight from James' hands.

    But James doesn't do no. He is determined, he will undo this, he will dive down into the Underworld itself if he must to get Thomas back. Except nothing is ever as easy as that, and James finds himself faced with choices beyond anything he could have ever imagined possible. For he is not the first to try convincing the Guardian of the Dead to release a lover, and he won't be the last. And the harder he tries, the more entangled he finds himself in the deep...

    Summary

    The world fails to end, and an angel and a demon walk away unscathed - much to the chagrin of their respective head offices. Their former sides are angry, but not without ideas. One of them, in any case.

    Hell comes back for Crowley, kidnaps him and tosses him into the deepest, darkest pit. Aziraphale goes after him, like he always will. Nothing will keep them from their own side anymore, not even having to make a deal with Lucifer himself.

    What follows is a journey though the nine circles of hell, but even more so a journey through the bonds we form, the reasons we choose the people we choose, and the power of the love we have for those we hold dear.

    Written for the Good Omens MiniBang 2020.

    Summary

    “You owe me,” Ben says in a low voice. “You owe her. Please.”

    Luke’s ghost kneels opposite him, looking at the lifeless girl limp in his arms with a troubled expression.

    “There’s no power in the universe can bring back the dead,” he says weakly. “I taught you that.”

    “But?” Ben prompts desperately, clutching Rey's body closer.

    Luke closes his eyes and takes a deep breath as though preparing for a plunge. “But… power isn’t everything.”


    Ben is granted one chance and only one: one month on a strange world to convince an alternate version of Rey to come home.

    Summary

    Ask those you call Gods, those you praise Goddesses, if they have a favorite story to tell - ask them just which tragedy has been a song in the back of their minds for the longest time, a tune to hum day in, day out, until they themselves have gotten sick of hearing it.

    Their answers will vary, some speaking of a reckless fool, of the son of a muse whose doubts won over his heart’s desire, others will speak of a shallow young man trading in the harshness of the world above for the shrill electric sounds below. Others will attempt to rewind time, turn it back, back, back until they stumble upon the very beginnings of the story, of the true tragedy of love lost to hatred, to indifference, to a city of steel and railroad tracks.

    And yet, they shall answer in unison, in spite of their differences in origin.

     

    Or, a retelling of Hadestown, the myth of Orpheus and Eurydice, and Hades and Persephone.

    Summary

    Gordon is doing better a few months after the Resonance Cascade, thanks to therapy, Joshua, and the continued presence of the Science Team in his life. He's adjusted to his new mechanical hand, to the inhuman nature of his comrades, life without a soul-sucking job and with plenty of hush-money. So why does everything feel off? Why does he feel like something is missing?

    And then it clicks. Benrey was absolutely nowhere to be seen. But saying he was completely dead just felt like a lie. He had to be out there, somewhere, and Gordon wants to know exactly where he's been since the final battle; and why he didn't come back.

    Summary

    "Gather ‘round, one and all, and hear from my lips the tale of Magnus, savior of the dead.
    It is a tale of love gone sour, of love undying, lost and found and lost again. Come friends, and hear the old tale, sung again, as old tales always are."

    It's an Orpheus Au, heavy on the taakitz, heavily inspired by Hadestown because you gotta love Hadestown.

    Come friends, and let me spin you a tale.

    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.
