    l’esprit de l’escalier: that feeling you get when you leave a conversation and think of all the things you should have said

    With his books and his clothes and other curiosities he’d collected since beginning his time in London, Aziraphale considered himself a curator of beautiful things. He found beauty in people too, in the way they moved and spoke and laughed.

    This man, who was very nearly past him now, almost gone, shook him. He couldn’t understand why. There was an impulse to reach out, to wrap his blunt fingers around the man’s skinny wrist on his handlebars, say “Hello there, might you have a moment to explore why I’ve fallen in love with you just now?”

    Summary

    "They'll leave us alone. For a bit."

    One year after the Apocalypse-That-Wasn't, Crowley and Aziraphale have settled into a new routine: keeping an eye on supernatural happenings in the world and preventing Heaven or Hell from interfering too much with humanity. It's not a bad job - despite occasional rains of fish - and if there are some unspoken things they really ought to talk about, well, they have all the time in the world now to get around to that, right?

    At least, until the Archangel Raphael turns up on their doorstep looking for help... and it starts to become clear that the world is changing fast, and so are they.

    Or: 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

    Bound by technicality; devoted by choice.

     

     

    The demon Crowley is accidentally summoned by Will Charity after an expedition for the Bureau of Antiquities uncovers a strange artifact. Will, who never intended to make a deal with a demon, figures he may as well make the best of the situation while he tries to come up with a way to nullify the contract. Crowley, who never expected to be back in a human form so soon (the 14th century being 'recent' by demon standards), is eager to get the deal completed so he can go back to enjoying his nap. But Will isn't the worst person to be stuck with, and Crowley quickly gets the hang of this Adventurer thing, so if it takes a little while to iron out the details... Neither of them are complaining.
