    Summary

    Demon Crowley, Serpent of Eden, may it be your will to hear my prayer and grant my petition. Um. Hello there. This is Aziraphale. Can you hear me?

    There aren’t many who pray to demons these days, with the possible exception of the odd order of Satanists that Crowley does his best to avoid (though even those groups tend to default to summons and bindings over prayer, more’s the pity). Still… once of celestial stock, always of celestial stock, and you don’t lose a core capacity just because you got a sulfur-flavored demotion.

    ~ ~ ~

    OR: How, exactly, did Crowley end up arriving at the Bastille with such impeccable timing?

    Summary

    “Dressed like that he was asking for trouble,” Crowley said as he started towards the now-open door of the cell.  “What’s for lunch?”  A question tossed halfheartedly over his shoulder.  Casual.  As if it were nothing, as if this were nothing.

    “Wait…” Aziraphale grabbed the cuff of Crowley’s wrist without thinking, snapping his hand back sharply when Crowley turned to look.  His glasses slid down the edge of his nose, revealing the golden yellow of his eyes, practically glowing in the dim light of the Bastille.

    Summary

    You smile at books
    At crêpes and wine — but sometimes
    You smile at me

    The stars in your eyes
    Sparkle warmer than sunshine
    Let me bask in them

    ~ ~ ~

    A haiku sequence by Antonio Penn, dated to approximately 1793.

    Summary

    Crowley always looks out for Aziraphale, always.

    Today it happened in Paris, in 1793

    Summary

    Crowley hadn’t meant to cause any trouble in Babel, really he was just enjoying how very clever the humans could be and resting on the laurels of the Flood (who else could take credit for making humans so evil they had to be wiped out, after all). But, he was there and he encouraged them to ask ‘how high can it be built?’ and well... that never ends well. The Tower falls and the language of the Earth is shattered. Angels can still understand all the languages but demons lose that ability. Worse- because Aziraphale and Crowley were at the Tower when it fell, they share in the curse of Babel and can never again understand each other’s words.

    Explores how an angel and a demon learn to trust each other when they cannot speak, how the Arrangement comes to be without negotiation, and how they conspire to stop the Apocalypse when they cannot plan.

    The fallout from the Tower of Babel incident from Babel itself to The Apocalypse.

    Summary

    In 1793, drunk on crépes and smiles (and possibly a little bit of alcohol as well), Crowley sent a stack of pages to a publishing company.

    Not too long after that, the first volume of love poetry by up-and-coming writer Antonio Penn hit the printing press.

    ~ ~ ~

    It was one of Aziraphale’s gavotte partners at the club in Portland Place who gifted him his first copy of one of Antonio Penn’s anthologies of poetry.

    Penn was, of course, far from the first love poet whose works Aziraphale had read… and, indeed, far from the first whose poetry had touched his heart. Still, Aziraphale was not sure he had ever encountered an author whose words resonated quite so deeply.

    Summary

    “Have you forgotten?” The angel averted his gaze, a subtle blush painting his cheeks. “A demon can’t help an angel. Not without taking something from him.”

    Crowley tilted his head to the left as he thought through the implications of that. Nice job, angel. He was really rather proud of how creative that was.

    “Right, yes, right, course I remember.” He cleared his throat and stepped closer. “Now, let’s see what I could take from you before I can free you.”

    Summary

    Aziraphale and Crowley engage in a lot of unaware mutual pining over the course of history. Crowley's attempts to successfully communicate his interest fail. (Because Aziraphale is oblivious.) And there is a lot of Shakespeare and random historical trivia. Because I say so.

    "Crowley looked across the table at the angel, who still looked a little put out. The café was crowded with people, all plainly-dressed: some talking at the top of their voices in agitated French, some, like him and the angel, hunkered down low, speaking quietly. Aziraphale didn’t seem affect by the tension. He was picking apart his lemon and sugar crêpe with focused delicacy...."

    Summary

    Antonia and Aziraphale during his 3rd year of university. Very much a continuation of the previous fics in this series. A curious blend of realism and idealism, if you want to know which bits are reality based feel free to ask. Porn is in chapters 1, 7, and 11.

    ~

    After getting on the same page emotionally, Antonia and Aziraphale find there's practical challenges life can throw at them, too.

    I’m trying to tag very thoroughly and will try to give pre-chapter content warnings for anything that might be triggering for some readers.

    There is a skin applied to show the text messages in chapter 10 as displayed on a phone.

    The entire fic is drafted and my goal is to post an update every three days. Thanks for reading along!

    Summary

    Six thousand years is a long time to pine for someone. Two thousand years is a long time to have sex with someone. Seven hundred years is a long time to be friends with someone. Eternity is a long time to love someone. It's worth the wait.
    Crowley and Aziraphale through the ages, as we've seen them - and some years we haven't - having lots and lots of emotionally fraught sex. Following from Rome to post-canon in 177K words.

    Summary

    Love’s Endless Light is a 12-part, canon-compliant, serial romance fic. As Aziraphale and Crowley slowly fall in love over the millennia, Crowley discovers that Aziraphale is keeping a very dangerous secret. It will update Fridays on Ao3 & Tumblr.

    Why a serial fic? Because I wanted to make a Tumblr comic like all the cool kids do, but I can’t draw, so you’re going to get it in prose.

    Summary

    After he’d Fallen, he’d fetched up against the bare earth on the basement level (no office space yet, but it wasn’t all boiling sulfur so the others were using words like “potential” and “good bones” before you could say “eternally damned”), hair singed, surrounded by the smell of burning feathers. He remembered realizing he couldn’t breathe- his body had still been shocked and still- before he even really knew what breathing was. He’d panicked, not knowing what this thing was that his body seemed to need so desperately, only knowing that he did need it, he needed it now, but he couldn’t get it, and that was unbearable.

    This was like that. The angel’s scent was the turning of a blank page, a painting rendered in a colour palette Crawly had never seen. And now he could never not see it, never be able to unsee the shifting and wonderful complexity of it; his life would be divided into the time before he’d smelled it, and the time after. He gave a deep shudder as he breathed him in, knowing, knowing that he would need it now, he would crave it, and he couldn’t keep it. Would probably never smell it again.

    Summary

    Maybe after the Bastille, things went differently (v. 38,283 or so, probably).

    The bonds at his wrists were just tight enough to be a little snug, not enough to chafe. And their attachment to the beam overhead tugged at his shoulder joints if he tried to move from the short bench he sat on, but not if he remained still. Less crude than the chains, but more restricting. For a moment, when Crowley stopped time, it hadn’t been clear whether he’d meant to loose those chains.

    Aziraphale couldn’t pretend he hadn’t thought about it.

    Summary

    Still, human clothing styles did change; and if he wanted to fit in (and he did, oh he did, and no matter how many times he insisted to himself that it was only to better protect and guide his mortal charges, a secret part of him found it exhilarating to be accepted as just-another-face-in-the-crowd, after such an immeasurable length of time being the odd duck in Heaven) he had at least to make an effort to change with them.

    Aziraphale and his evolving relationship with clothing.
