    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

    As was her usual practice, when Nanny Ashtoreth returned from doing whatever she did on her afternoon off, she stopped off at the gardener’s hut for a late-night cup of tea before heading to her own quarters.

    “So how’d things go with the hellspawn?” she asked.

    Summary

    Crowley settled himself a little deeper in his chair, smoothing his skirt. “Lie still now. Close your eyes.” He tilted his own head back and demonstrated.

    Warlock flipped to his belly. The blankets were in a heap at his feet, the little blue pyjamas printed with anthropomorphic steam engines rucked up around his knees. “I tried to close my eyes. But they won’t stay closed!”

    “Well, when they open, just close them again.”

    Warlock squinted his eyes shut dramatically to show willing, but opened them again with a loud, put-upon sigh under a minute later. “I just can’t. Nanny… why can’t I see my eyes?”

    Crowley was understanding God’s firm no questions, “because-I-said-so” stance more clearly by the minute.


    Two times Crowley put someone he loved to bed, told in parallel.

    Summary

    Aziraphale watched Crowley take a long drink, seemingly pondering how to answer as she savored the taste of her wine.

    “It’s the dreams,” the demon said at last. “I like to dream.”

    “I can’t say that I’ve ever really gotten the appeal. Dreams aren’t real. It’s all imaginary, is it not? I’ve always found reality fascinating enough that I doubt that my unconscious brain could think up something even half as interesting.”

    “‘Course it’s all imaginary,” Crowley told her. The flames of the candles danced and flickered across the reflection in her glasses. “That’s the whole point. Dreams can show me things that could never happen in the real world.”


    In the last six years before the world ends, Aziraphale learns how to sleep. In her dreams, she discovers a world without rules where she can do anything she wants without fear. The best part is that Crowley is there, too, and she can tell her all the things she can't when she's awake.

    ... None of it is real, of course, but she's willing to accept any time with Crowley she can get, no matter the circumstances.

    Summary

    It's a dark and stormy night, and Warlock Dowling can't sleep. Nanny Ashtoreth has an idea. Brother Francis, meanwhile, would like to know why Nanny Ashtoreth had this idea.

    (The true answer: Because the author wanted to write fluff.)

    Summary

    Antonia smiles, and then goes over to fetch her handbag where she left it on the table. “Not so fast, pet,” she says, popping the clasp to reach inside for something. “I had some other plans for you and I, tonight.”

    When she withdraws her hand, she’s holding something very black and very phallic, though not entirely in the so-called traditional sense, given the fact that it seems to have protrusions of slightly differing shapes on both ends.

    Francis swallows, hard, and tries not to let his voice crack. “And what might those plans be, madam?”

    Summary

    In which the influence Aziraphale and Crowley have over the world and their environment extend to each other. This story follows Aziraphale through time as he struggles with his feelings for Crowley versus Crowley’s expectations of him. Pining, slow burn, and so so much love.

    Or: Was Crowley summoning him on purpose? No, Aziraphale didn’t think so, not with how delighted and surprised he seemed to be every time they ran into each other. Then Aziraphale thought about all the times the angel really needed Crowley, in Egypt during the plagues and again in France--so certain the demon would show up in the eleventh hour--and the one particular time in a church during WWII where no demon could enter. Had Aziraphale willed him there?

    Summary

    Crowley thinks nothing of flames burning in Aziraphale’s hearth as they share a glass of wine that first winter at the Dowling residence. Little does she know, when a dark-stockinged leg catches her eye, the reflection of that red firelight is about to change everything.

    Summary

    Living for 6,000 years on Earth, facing some of the difficult or frustration or scary parts of life hasn't always been easy for Crowley and Aziraphale. A few times, they found comfort with each other and curled together to watch the events of the world around them unfold. They become closer until eventually, they can seek out the comfort on purpose.

    Or five times throughout history that Crowley and Aziraphale cuddled together out of need and one time they cuddled together out of want.
