    Summary

    There was a buzz of excitement in the air, but Crowley could not work out why; despite how he liked to believe that he was always abreast with what the humans were up to, he still found that every so often, he was a few steps behind. He supposed that this was one of the inevitabilities of being… not human. He gave the cabbie a lazy wave and gestured at the traffic.

    “What’s all this, then?”

    The cabbie gave Crowley an unimpressed look. “Pull the other one, mate, don’t have time for any more wind-up merchants.” And he blasted on the horn again, stretching awkwardly to reach it whilst still standing outside of the car; his shout was directed to the upper floors of the flat: “Oi, ladies, get a move on! Let’s not wait for the bleedin’ grass to grow!”

    Summary

    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?”

    An adaptation of Jean-Pierre Jeunet's 2001 film Amélie, as part of the GO Romantic Comedy Event

    Summary

    Three weeks after the argument in St. James's Park, Crowley shows up on Aziraphale's doorstep, clearly desperate, asking for a favor.

    Despite his misgivings, Aziraphale agrees.

    He's not expecting Crowley to give him a ring.

    (Crowley isn't, either, but that's beside the point)

    Summary

    “Lost another sword, have you?”

    The angel huffed. “No.” He cleared his throat. “But I did forget something.”

    “Oh?”

    “My name.”

    “Well, I can’t help you there, angel.”

    Another huff. “No. I meant… I haven’t given you my name.”
