    Summary

    ‘Angel, I told you not to fuss,’ Crowley croaks, somewhere underneath the blankets – and then he emerges, all tousled hair and black vest, looking both three shades paler than usual and more than a little annoyed at the absolute audacity of the angel for bringing him a hot drink.

    ‘It’s no bother,’ Aziraphale bats away his irritation, ‘this should be better for you, especially after you threw the Lemsip at the wall. And the hot Ribena.’

    Summary

    Kidnapped, Crowley is forced to serve as Heaven's brood mare while believing his family was killed. All because the longer an angel or demon inhabits their corporation on earth, the more functionally human that body becomes, and Crowley, while wearing a vagina, got pregnant.

    Heaven needs a demon to bear them their own army of hybrids, and the only demon that has ever succeeded in having a child is Crowley. They want their war and their army, and Crowley is going to give them it.

    Summary

    Crowley can't sleep.
    He realises that, ironically, sleep should be coming easier to him than it has for the past eleven years. After all, Armageddon didn't happen, the world didn't end, Heaven and Hell may actually leave them alone (at least for the foreseeable future), and yet, something feels off. It almost seems like it was all too easy...
    Like this can't be the end of the story.

    It's not just about the Bentley, not really.

    Summary

    I have endeavoured in this Ghostly little fic, to raise the Ghost of an Idea...

    Aziraphale finds himself besieged by the supposed ghost of an old (and unwelcome) acquaintance on Christmas Eve, is told he has some soul-searching to do, and is incredibly reluctant to be the protagonist of this particular tale but absolutely doesn't have a choice. At least he knows they'll get it done all in one night.

    Summary

    He hadn’t been able to see Crowley’s face but the anguish in his voice had been enough of a clue all on its own. It’s been hours since then and Crowley has certainly managed to pull himself together admirably but Aziraphale hasn’t forgotten what Crowley sounded like when the demon had thought him lost for good. He doesn’t think he ever will.

    Summary

    In his quiet, innermost thoughts Aziraphale often felt like that himself, like white water rapids barely contained in a teacup threatening to shatter the fragile container with their raging and churning. He was the favored teacup; the one that was well-used and comfortable, but that ultimately needed- perhaps even deserved-  gentle handling. After all, it would never be the teacup's fault when clumsy handling broke it past all hope of repair, right? He knew that, after 6000 years of life, there were certainly some chips at his rim and base, but he thought that was probably alright. Surely it meant he was well-loved… surely it must. He did not like to think on what it might say about him were that not the case.

     

    Aziraphale thinks to himself in the darkness of the Mayfair flat, the night the world had been meant to end but didn’t, while Crowley sleeps in the bed next to him.

    Summary

    Crowley is so sure, so convinced that if he sleeps, something bad will happen, and he will not be able to do anything about it. So he just doesn't sleep, even if his corporation has gotten used to it.

    Summary

    An insight to the finer details of Crowley's moment at the airbase, and the aftermath.

    A warm breeze coming and a weight settled on his back as the solid tarmac of the runway shifted and shoes sank into sand. Pure white, untouched and celestial that Crowley blinked while his wings stretched out. Drawn forth by the familiarity of the area and warmth that might feel like love to an angel, by Her grace. Feathers catching in the breeze of the desert outside the Garden of Eden.

    Summary

    Crowley wants to sleep the afternoon away. When unable to find somewhere where is comfortable enough to rest, he goes to the only place on Earth where he feels safe and comfortable enough, Aziraphale's bookshop.

    Short and fluffy because I am a sucker for fluff.

    Summary

    "Do you ever just feel... tired?"
    "Well I definitely know you do dear, you slept an entire century, remember?" Crowley did remember - fondly - that the only time he got up in 100 years was to go to the Lavatory and that was honestly the best piss he took in all his earth bound life.
    "Not tired like you want to sleep, tired like... you want a rest from the rest of life." he was definitely hesitant putting this out there, but he's been thinking about this quite a lot since he delivered the antichrist to the babbling order of St Beryl's.
    "You mean like a holiday?" Aziraphale asked curiously putting down his fork and resting it on his plate (no need to dirty the table)
    "No, I mean like a real retirement, Angel" he firmly stated.
    "Oh"

    Summary

    Crowley enjoys being a snake from time to time. And if he can scare a few of Aziraphale’s customers away from the angel's precious books, well, that's just an added bonus... Even though he really just wants a nap.

    Summary

    It's never a good idea to let an angel get lonely.

    Or, rather -- when Crowley needs a longer-than-usual nap after the apocalypse that wasn't, Aziraphale ends up getting a pet snake to keep him company in the shop. Upon waking, Crowley is not amused to find he now has competition for his angel's affections. A few feathers get ruffled in the ensuing kerfuffle.

    Summary

    Once, there was an angel named Raphael. He asked too many questions.
    Once, there was a demon named Crowley. He was tired.
    These two facts are connected.
