    Summary

    “Let me see if I’ve got it straight,” said Shadow. “So Abraham leaves, nine thousand dollars the richer, and in the parking lot by the train station he and Barrington meet up. They split the money, get into Barrington’s Model A Ford, and head for the next town. I guess in the trunk of that car they must have a box filled with hundred-dollar violins.”
    “I personally made it a point of honor never to pay more than five dollars for any of them,” said Wednesday.
    - Neil Gaiman, American Gods

    If there's anything Boyd can do well, it's play a fiddle and charm the pants off of anyone he meets. Ned wishes he could say the same about himself. In a diner in Atlanta, Georgia, the two partners in crime do their best to pull a fiddle grift, and it doesn't quite go the way either of them expect.

    Takes place six years before the events of The Moth who Came In from the Cold, though can be read as a standalone.

    Summary

    (it's more likely than you think)

    Warlock "Lockie" Dowling summons a demon.

    Or, he buys a book off a suspiciously familiar bookseller and is convinced into demon summoning.

    It goes about as well as you'd expect.

    Summary

    “It’s angel food cake,” he said. He waited. When Aziraphale did nothing but nod politely: “It’s funny, see, ‘cause-”

    “No, no, I get it.” Aziraphale nodded again. “Very funny.”

    “Oh, shut up, it is-”

    “May I ask what brought this on?”

    Crowley paused. “Can’t a guy just want to try baking?”

    (Or, Crowley makes Aziraphale food after the world doesn't end. It has absolutely nothing to do with how much he wants to make Aziraphale smile.)

    Summary

    “Are you saying I feel like this because of my time in Hell? I thought you meant moral consequences.”

    “Since when do I give a toss about moral consequences, angel? No, you’ve got a Hell hangover. Must have hit once the adrenaline wore off,” Crowley answered.

    Hell hangover?” Aziraphale repeated incredulously.

    Aziraphale's trip down to Hell leaves him worse for wear.
