    Summary

    1941 is the London Blitz and the year that MI5 really comes into its own with the now infamous ‘double cross’ system. The service keep tabs on suspects, root out enemy agents and try to turn them into doubles.

    Anthony J Crowley is fucking great at this job. He can be sneaky, underhanded and damn ruthless but also charming and kind. It’s what makes him good at turning.

    Aziraphale is just a regular Soho bookseller who loves his shop and books and good food and wine when he’s approached by a woman claiming to be MI5, wanting to recruit him for espionage. The poor man is too trusting and gets the shock of his life when he’s approached by a charming but dangerous-looking man also claiming to be MI5.

    Crowley recruits Aziraphale to double cross a double crosser and Aziraphale takes to espionage like a duck to water.

    Danger, hijinks, and sex ensue.

    Summary

    Unlike Crowley, Aziraphale doesn’t remember their relationship in Heaven. In fact, he doesn’t remember Cadamiel (Crowley) at all. He’s not sure why it’s so easy to talk to Crowley, or why it’s so hard to talk to the other angels.

    Gabriel wasn’t made until just before Cadamiel Fell. He doesn’t understand Michael’s thirst for vengeance against a minor demon, or her scorn for Aziraphale.

    Aziraphale and Gabriel’s perspective of Michael’s vendetta against Crowley since before his Fall. (Please read "you're my only one" first!)

    Title from The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde.

    Summary

    Crowley tried to picture what a bookshop that specialized in rare and antique books would look like, and what the owner of such a shop would look like. A small laugh escaped him as he pictured an elderly man with a long white beard who would always lose track of any conversation, or go off on something no one asked about.

    Crowley had been so lost in thought that he didn’t realize there was movement at the building in front of him, or take any notice of the actual owner exiting the building.

    “Crowley?”

    His body tensed up at the voice and the bookshop owner he had pictured was quickly lost. Standing in front of the bookshop was a familiar figure with soft blonde curls, still dressed very much like a middle-aged librarian. Time seemed to slow as he stared at the man he hadn’t seen in seven years, his heartbeat speeding up slightly.

    “Hullo, Aziraphale.”
