    Midnight vigils, soft epiphanies, and a monumental hammer waiting to fall. What did you call a feeling so big you couldn’t see the edges?

    Summary

    The worst thing in a whole panoply of worst things was that he mostly just really wanted to sit down on the sofa — the comfy sofa! He had a comfy sofa, what was his life coming to — and let Aziraphale stroke his hair.

    “Oh,” Aziraphale said, suddenly stopping dead. “Crowley.” His tone sounded completely different now. Worried? Sympathetic? Something? “Crowley. My dear. You’ve finally started making a home for yourself.”

    What do you do after the Apocalypse doesn't happen; when you're suddenly unemployed, spending a lot more time with your hereditary adversary, and avoiding a whole lot of feelings? Manifesting cushions is probably a bad sign...

    Summary

    If it weren’t for Aziraphale’s persistence, they wouldn’t have had a sex life at all, and Crowley was a demon, for goodness sake! Aziraphale didn’t understand it.

    (Aziraphale has the communication skills of a doorknob. Crowley isn't any better.)

    Summary

    Essa grinned, leaned forward.  “I think that Mr. Fell’s husband is a vampire!”  That pronouncement got immediate and violent reactions from both of her friends. 

    “What?” Rory screeched. 

    At the same time, Sev exclaimed, “That’s not possible!” 

    “Did he try to drink your blood?” Rory asked eagerly, leaning forward onto her hands. 

    “Nah,” Essa replied, not wanting to admit that that hadn't even occurred to her. 

    “Then, what?” Sev demanded.  “Why d’you think he’s a vampire?” 

    “He dresses all in black,” Essa explained with the air of someone very wise generously dispensing their wisdom.  “And everyone knows that only vampires dress all in black.  And he was wearing sunglasses indoors, probably on account of his vampire mind-control powers.  And he was sleeping during the day, which was prolly cuz vampires are nocturnal.  And he has fangs.  Saw ‘em myself.  There’s obviously no other explanation, ‘cept he’s a vampire.”

    [Some of Crowley and Aziraphale's new neighbors get the wrong impression]

    Summary

    There are so many things neither of them can change — how they met, the things they did, the words they said. It’s happened, it was probably always going to happen. And what it is, he can’t say, what he feels is almost too great for any one language. Inutterable, unspeakable —

    Ineffable.

    “So my idea, and please don’t dismiss it offhand - ” Aziraphale settles back against the pillows, “I think you should possess me.”

    “That’s a terrible idea,” Crowley says flatly.

    Summary

    The first time Mr. Asa Z. Fell met Mr. Anthony J. Crowley, it was the twenty-first of October, 1872, they were both fourteen years old, and the latter boy had just climbed his way up onto Asa’s balcony with a slanted grin and said, “Well, that went down like a lead balloon."

     

    A story about friendships, willow trees, anonymous letters, and discovering love against all odds.

    Summary

    It was a curtain-down, please-take-all-your-belongings-with-you-when-leaving-the-auditorium kind of moment, everybody milling around and saying awkward goodbyes and picking up the pieces, and all Crowley could think of was that he was in pieces, and the only belonging of his that had ever mattered was a burned-out skeleton on the road outside the airbase.

    Well, except for Aziraphale. Who was standing beside him, fussing his hands against his waistcoat, smiling nervously at everybody. Not burned out. Not dead, or even discorporated now. But here, alive, ridiculous, beautiful. Not a belonging, though. Not belonging to anyone now. Whatever Crowley’s – ha! English was an absurd language! – longing for him.

     

    At the airbase, as the curtain comes down and the pieces are picked up, Adam gives Crowley and Aziraphale something very precious.

    Summary

    Crowley and Aziraphale pop round to Plato's house for a symposium with Socrates and the gang. After a few drinks, the theory of hedonism comes up, and it gives Aziraphale some ideas.

    No better way to explore a theory than through practice.

    Summary

    The first time Crowley meets his downstairs neighbour, Aziraphale is breaking into his flat. He's not what Crowley imagined in a burglar -- he's fussy, old-fashioned, and surprisingly adorable. Crowley is intrigued, Aziraphale is ready to share a good wine... and possibly more.

    Summary

    It started like this: A boy with the ability to warp reality met an angel and a demon and he made assumptions.

    You might say it started like this: An angel and a demon found a marriage contract hung on the wall of the angel's bookshop. They didn't question it.

    It also could have started like this: Once upon a time, the angel told the demon he went too fast. The demon took it to heart.

     

    Aziraphale and Crowley find themselves somehow married. Crowley fears going too fast. Aziraphale forges ahead. Neither know how to ask questions of each other.

    Or, before they settle down, Crowley and Aziraphale go on a road trip.

    Summary

    This is Crowley’s problem— he’s always been too damn curious for his own good. Once he gets an idea in his head, something stupid and dangerous like What if I teamed up with an angel to stop Armageddon? or How fast can I go in this massive car down Oxford Street? he simply cannot let it go until he sees it through to the other end.

    So now, as he probes at that secret place inside the long hallway of his heart, the dark door behind which he’s stowed over a thousand of years of pent-up longing, the question he knows he wouldn’t be able to rest until he answers is: What if I let myself feel it all?

    Summary

    “Did I hear you say in full earshot of anyone,” said Aziraphale, his voice low and frighteningly controlled, “that you wanted to commit certain acts on my person?”

    Crowley would have bemoaned his bad luck, if he believed that luck applied to him. Instead, he considered the possibility that God hated him even more than he already knew She did. “What business is it of yours if I did?” he said. Aziraphale’s hand was blazingly warm on his arm, even through his shirt and coat. “You made your opinion of me clear.”

    (In which Aziraphale and Crowley's relationship takes an unexpected turn that fateful day in 1862.)

    Summary

    '“Look I understand, you’ve got to check up on the new occupants, make sure I’m a proper ‘fit’ for the neighborhood or whatever euphemism you’re going to use this time, 'the greater good,' I saw the film, I get it. But I peeked in at the place next door the agent mentioned and if you aren’t bothering him I really don't think you should be-”

    “I’m your neighbor,” Aziraphale interrupted. “I own that place next door?”

    “Oh.”'

    Since the next shop over closed down, Aziraphale's had a peaceful few months, barring those unpleasant interactions with the men in cheap suits who keep trying to persuade him to sell his shop. But now a (handsome) new owner has taken up residence beside him and, horror of horrors, he wants to open up a coffee shop.
