    Summary

    Nearly five decades after the Holy Water argument, Aziraphale is sent to a world-famous sanatorium in the Swiss Alps on an assignment that Heaven appears to care about rather more than usual—only to find out that Crowley, of all creatures, has already established himself there.

    Clearly, this cannot be good for anyone's constitution.

    The main story arc is now complete, although there will be an epilogue.

    Summary

    She seems to have noticed his discomfort, because her grin only widens. “You look nervous,” she says sweetly. “Didn't think anyone was reading all those reports you filed, did you?”

    Crowley doesn't bother replying to that. They both know the answer.

    “I wonder,” Lissek muses, tapping her lip with a single neon claw, “how long you thought you would be able get away with this.” She hums, flicking another paper to the floor. “Looking at these... you've been getting sloppy, haven't you. Did you really think no one would notice? That no one would ever check?”

    Summary

    Sometimes concepts are too big, too complicated, and too ineffable to properly describe or understand. Sometimes it is easier to imagine things as metaphors. And metaphorically speaking, reality could be viewed as an obscure and complex version of poker played in a pitch-black room, with blank cards, for infinite stakes, with a Dealer who won’t tell you the rules and who smiles all the time.

    Of course, reality can also be viewed as two powerful angels going down to Earth with the goal of wiping the "traitor" out of existence the old-fashioned way. If more precise methods don't work, then simply smite away at the target until there's nothing left.

    (Inspired by a lovely piece of artwork by WhiteleyFoster.)

    Summary

    Crowley paces, twitching. Nearby, the witch crafts her poultice, humming lowly. The scent of various herbs pollute the home. It puts him in mind of bubbling soups, of searing meats and sprinkled seasonings. He flicks his tongue irritably, listing the scents in his mind, telling himself to avoid such reminders in the near future.

    Stone grinds as she works her mortar and pestle. He sneezes. She tuts lowly, the only sign she even remembers his presence. He hisses, circling his given ground, craning to see what sliver of outside life is available to him. A blackbird wings by the window, a flicker of feathers. He drops back to his heels and sighs.

    The days pass quietly.

    Summary

    Newt stares at the new additions to their front garden.

    He cautiously steps out and pokes one of the darker mounds of feathers. It is surprisingly soft, actually. Now that he’s drawn closer and is in a position to see over the massive wings – yep, definitely huge, ridiculous wings – he thinks he might actually recognise the limp bodies they’re attached to.

    Now is a really bad time for Anathema to have went on that book tour.
