    Summary

    Hastur would take revenge the first chance he got, even if he thought Crowley was essentially unable to be killed outright.  Discorporating him would create quite the issue for Crowley, given he no longer had a side.

    A bit concerned, he made a note to talk to Aziraphale about obtaining more holy water.  This time Crowley was sure he’d be more accommodating.

    He was wrong.

    A revenge-driven Hastur stalks Crowley post-apocalypse-that-wasn't, forcing Crowley to turn to Aziraphale for help. While Crowley struggles with the anxiety brought on by being stalked, Aziraphale struggles with his feelings for Crowley. But that's just the beginning. Events are happening that could lead to another attempted Apocalypse.

    Please note some of the tags are for future chapters. I just threw them in there while I was thinking of them.

    Summary

    Carmilla Karnstein lives in the small town of Styria in the outskirts of Graz. She runs the kitchen in her family-owned lodge. In her 31 years of existence, she has never left the region of Styria. Thoughtful, charming, and altruistic, Carmilla hides beneath her mask of sarcasm and reclusive nature.
    Laura Hollis is a 27 year old fresh from graduate school taking some time off to travel with her fiancée Danny Lawrence who is a commercial photographer. Entrapped in her mundane life and relationship with Danny, Laura rediscovers herself as she ventures out in the borders of Styria sampling local food and meeting new people.

    Loosely inspired by the Sofia Coppola movie "Lost in Translation", both trapped in their own circumstances, Laura and Carmilla re-experience love and emerge from their self-built confines that they call life.

    The title is borrowed from a passage in "Diary", a novel by Chuck Palahniuk.

    Summary

    Lan Wangji was everything Wei Wuxian was not.
    Rigid, up-tight, pretentious. A person that normally woke irritation and exasperation inside of him. Lan Wangji was all that, but he was also different.
    Their swords clashed, and under his sharp gaze, a hot determination washed over Wei Wuxian. On par with his opponent, the moon their witness. A match, an equal, a person worthy of his attention.

    Summary

    You want to punch him. You want to hear the sound of his teeth on the stone-hard floor. You want to smear your knuckles in blood, you want to scream your betrayal in iron-red paint across his face. You want pain and spit and bruises that bloom like watercolour peonies under the skin.

    A scene of What's past is prologue, from another perspective.

    Summary

    Crowley clenched his jaw, “Sounds like you’re the one trying to cheat.”

    “You’re starting easy with me,” He sipped his tea, noting how much sweeter it was now. “So I’ll go easy on you.”

    Crowley shifted uneasily where he stood. “Very kind of you,” he responded sarcastically.

    “No, very kind of you, Crowley.” The angel smiled. To someone less trained it would seem like an innocent honest smile, but the demon knew far better then that.

    ******************

    Crowley tempts his angel into sin. Aziraphale tricks his demon into being virtuous. They think they're playing a high stakes game, but really they're trying to take care of one another the only way they know how.

    Summary

    "No matter what," he said, tone oddly blank, "you keep moving forward."

    She didn't say anything, because she wasn't sure she could— the breeze had picked up and she could hear wood beneath his feet, which meant they were actually on the bridge.

    "Even if you have to struggle to find a safe way out," he continued. "Even if you're afraid. Even if you have to take it one step at a time. Even if it feels absolutely impossible and it would be easier to just roll over and give up and die. You keep going. There isn't another option."

    Summary

    Quartz is the second most common mineral in Earth's continental crust. It is called by the name 'Amethyst' when it is purple, 'Citrine' when it is yellow, 'Prasiolite' when green, and 'Chalcedony' when found mixed with moganite. It comes in almost every colour, and is not particularly expensive.

    It holds magical power most easily, and there is no other variety of gemstone that can be so useful as a magical battery. Indeed, ancient quartz pieces are the cause of the most muggle deaths upon being tampered with, giving forth huge bursts of uncontrolled magical energy, usually in elemental form. We can appreciate the dichotomy of this, and perhaps take a lesson from it: that the most common of gems can, truly, be a diamond in the rough.The Crystal Catalogue: Being A Compendium Of All Magically Significant Gems And Minerals, With Especial Attention Paid To Those Most Useful To Magicka Obscura, Claudius Malfoy, 1806

    Summary

    as for the body, it is solid and strong and curious and full of detail: it wants to polish itself; it wants to love another body; it is the only vessel in the world that can hold, in a mix of power and sweetness: words, song, gesture, passion, ideas, ingenuity, devotion, merriment, vanity, and virtue.

    Summary

    They live in a flickering coexistence between humans and magic — there are those born to live off the honest sweat lining their palms, and then there are those born of a different blood, of magic, silver, gold, and fire coursing through their veins.
    Some thank the blessings of the gods; others simply regard it as a curse of fate.
    And so, whether it is a blessing or a curse, Aizawa Shouta finally meets an angel and learns of heaven on earth.

    au where quirks are simply replaced with certain magical affinities gained at birth.
