    Summary

    “Then you’ll just have to come back with me," Aziraphale said.

    “You what?”

    “You’ll have to come and isolate with me, at my cottage.”

    The thing about messing with people, Crowley thought, was that sometimes, they genuinely surprised you.

    After both being exposed to coronavirus, total strangers Crowley and Aziraphale are forced to wait out their isolation together. A tale of soft winter romance by the sea.

    Summary

    Anthony Crowley works too hard. The answer to his lonely, quite frankly, pathetic, existence might be a high-end escort who sells the fantasy of a relationship.
    Aziraphale has just nudged his way past thirty. He’s facing burnout and wants to get out of the business, but the thrill of a new client might be just what he needs to get some of his passion back.
    It seems like a convenient arrangement, until they both realise it's not enough and they want something real.

    Summary

    It has been 270 years since Sirens were cursed to live under the sea and tensions have only been rising like steam from a boiling pot.

    Crowley, a Siren in his late two hundreds, has felt out of place his entire life and wonders where he is meant to be. He figures he'll never find that answer until one day he meets a human, the prince Aziraphale. He'll do anything to stay with him, even make a deal with the notorious Sea Witch, Lucifer. Will he be able to keep his end of the deal or will Lucifer claim his life? Will he be able to stay with the man he loves or will he live the rest of his life under the sea?

    Summary

    They were silent for a time, enjoying each other’s nearness and the tranquility they found themselves in. Until Aziraphale murmured in his ear, “I think I know the real reason you’re so happy.”

    “Mm?”

    A chuckle. “If you will permit me a bit of vanity…”

    “Oh, permission granted.”

    They giggled together, pressed close and warm and safe. It was everything Crowley had ever wanted.

    Summary

    After the end of the world is averted, Crowley expects things to be less complicated, they both do, and when they're not it becomes clear to Aziraphale that he's been hurting his companions feelings in ways he hand't realized. Now Crowley is clearly meaningfully upset with him.

    ... And then the angst fluff spiral continued, and there's plot now, so, enjoy that. I love that for us.

    This started as just lighthearted -enough- to keep me from taking myself too seriously, but that has liberated my story telling in a way I could not have foreseen. So yeah, it starts with some ideas I was toying with, thinking I might write a drabble and get back to writing my novel, but then I decided to keep going, so it gets progressively heavier and additionally sincere. We're dragging up and addressing everything. We are unpacking some millenniums-old boxes. If something doesn't seem to sit quite right, especially in the first few chapters, do know there is a HIGH likelihood I have dragged it back up to address it.

    Summary

    If you want to know what (more or less) goes on here, listen to "Closer" by Nine Inch Nails because it gave me the idea. (the lyrics are also the title)

    or

    Crowley has been a little slut because he wants some attention from his angel- which he gets, though not a 100%...

    Summary

    Crowley is tasked with thwarting King Arthur, and invents a game that will occupy Arthur and keep him too busy to spread peace and goodness in the land.

    Of course it backfires, and a frustrated Crowley finds himself the King’s personal favourite opponent for the game, leaving him with no time to spread discord!

    Can Aziraphale help Crowley find a way out of his self-imposed Purgatory?

    Summary

    Aziraphale has been wounded while defending innocent civilians and summarily sentenced to death via wandering in the desert for his actions, but when he stumbles upon Crowley’s house by chance, his luck changes rapidly.

    Crowley is a strange and skittish man who lives alone, tucked in amongst a collection of medicinal herbs, broken pottery, and torn blankets.

    When the reason for Crowley’s caution and odd behaviour is revealed, Aziraphale can think of nothing he’d rather do than try to help him free himself from his tragedy, and the two embark upon a tender romance which will change both of their lives for the better.

    Summary

    They see a couple kiss in the park and Aziraphale seems interested by the concept. Crowley “reluctantly” agrees to indulge his curiosity, knowing full well that this will be the death of him.

    ~~~

    “And how do you know if it’s the right person? Do you just try it out?”

    Crowley turned his full attention to Aziraphale. “What are you getting at?”

    The angel straightened, staring at the ducks on the water and decidedly not at Crowley. “I want to try it,” he said simply.

    Crowley’s glasses slid down his nose, he blinked in confusion, and something in his chest seized up, just a bit. “You want to… to kiss someone?”

    “Yes.”

    Summary

    Kokabiel, Angel of the Stars. He always saw stories hidden away in the stars he created, but chose to leave them hidden. He left them for the humans to find them, for the humans that admired his creations and studied them. He was childlike and saw the stars in a way that almost no other angel could. He took care of them and treated them as if they were his own children. Love and care overflowed from him as he gently set them free from his astronomy tower.

    Aziraphale remembers Kokabiel and his kindness very fondly.

    After all, he was his first love.

    Summary

    Crowley has worked the same soulless job for two decades, and he hasn't had anyone to talk to since his pet snake died a couple years ago. When Industrial Holdings (Holdings) PLC sends him to their annual conference in the US, he expects a week of mind-numbing boredom bookended by two torturous half-days spent in airplanes.

    But as fate would have it, an embarrassing mishap leads him to meet an unrelentingly positive flight attendant who smiles at him like he's a real human being, and makes him think that maybe, if he plays this right, he won’t have to die alone.

    Summary

    {Once Upon A Time…

    There was a red-haired sorcerer who lived alone in a high tower. And a blond prince who lived in a palace full of people. And they were both of them desperately lonely.

    The Kingdoms of Empyrion and the Sorcerers of Apollyon have hated each other for hundreds of years, ever since the Great War. They do not interact, other than to occasionally try to kill one another. And they certainly do not make friends.

    Crow is an exhausted sorcerer who just wants everyone to leave him the hell alone: for the Sorcerer’s Council to stop harassing him to live up to his potential, and for wannabe Empyrion Heroes to stop attacking his tower to try and kill him. Until one day when he meets Prince Azra of the High Fells, who doesn’t behave anything like he’s supposed to…

    Part fairy tale, part fantasy, all love story. There’s magic, and grand romantic gestures, and Heroes and a handsome Prince, and a Villain. There are even some wild heroics, though not necessarily from who you would expect. At its core it’s simply about two (relatively) sane people living in a mad world who find each other.

    The smut isn’t until later chapters.}

    Summary

    After a moment of casual contact in Rome, Crowley realizes that he’s touch-starved. He dreams about holding Aziraphale’s hand or—even better—hugging him. But Aziraphale is an angel, and Crowley is a demon. And demons don’t deserve hand holding or hugs…do they?

    Summary

    “I want to hold your hand,” Aziraphale said.
    Crawly looked up from where’d he’d been watching a couple of little water bugs to squint at the angel, sun beating down overhead. He held a palm up to shield his eyes from it. “You wot?”
    “I want to hold your hand,” Aziraphale repeated calmly.
    ***
    Five times they wanted to hold hands, and one time two times they did.

    Crowley has one goal: sell the run-down lodge in the Cascades that his uncle left him in his will.

    Summary

    "Thought I'd start by washing your hair." Crowley's voice was almost shy, like he thought it was too much. Like it was exposing part of him to admit it was something he wanted to do.

    It was all so new still. This cottage they had bought together. The romantic atmosphere. The freedom to touch. The love openly displayed.

    It took reminding sometimes, that this was allowed. That they could give themselves to each other like this.

    Crowley washes Aziraphale's hair. After 6000 years of repression, of Heaven's cold barrenness and Hell's crowded filth, simple loving touch feels overwhelming. Some tears are had.
