  2. Summary

    Crowley and Aziraphale start a detective agency. Shenanigans ensue. Slowburn continues. Apparently, there is plot. I have some thoughts about Heaven, Hell, and humanism. There will be stupid jokes and a healthy sprinkling of angst.

    Summary

    Aziraphale, it seemed, was being forced, and not for the first time, to sup with the devil – or rather, not the devil, obviously, but certainly a member of his senior management team. Still. He was exceedingly thirsty.

    Summary

    “The worst thing about this quarantine,” Aziraphale says, then stops and wriggles, embarrassed.

    [Crowley gives Aziraphale a manicure and tries not to spontaneously combust.]

    First chapter has a teen rating and can be read alone if smut isn't your thing.

    Summary

    Before anyone reports this post, I got this AMA authorised by posting proof to a mod, so there.

    Hi, Reddit! I’m no-one special, but about 6 months ago, I moved into a flat above a cafe next door to a bookshop, and my life has never been the same since, because the man who runs the bookshop is some sort of ageless (mostly) benevolent eldritch being. By all accounts, he hasn’t aged a day since at least 1944, sometimes he seems to have just too many eyes, and I once saw him turn water into wine (a nice rosé). His coworker / best friend / boyfriend / shadow entity is also definitely some kind of cryptid, but despite trying harder to be a bastard, he’s somehow less successful at it.

    So, if you have any questions about what it’s like to live next door to an eternal bastard man, AMA!

    Or, a cryptid bastard man haunts Reddit, trying to find out how to ask out his crush of the past 6,000 years and getting downvoted to literal oblivion. Just normal stuff on the world wide web.

    Summary

    There's something about the care Aziraphale takes with his books. The way he treasures them, loves them...

    ... and also, perhaps more relevant to Crowley's reaction, the way he fondles them. Strokes their covers. Spreads their pages open with a sure hand, runs his fingers down the split at the center. Traces the letters debossed into leather covers, or teases at the stitching with a fingertip, the light of rapture in his face...


    Crowley has spent a lot of time imagining what it might be like to be one of Aziraphale's books. Aziraphale is happy to give him the chance to find out.

    Summary

    They really have gone native. The both of them. A demon, curled up against a sleeping angel, who in Heaven or Hell could ever have imagined it?
