    Summary

    “Port gives the worst hangovers in the world, did you know that?” Crowley slurred when the bottle was all gone. “Don’t know who got credit for that one. Nice drink, lovely drink, shame it makes you want to die in the morning.”

    “Such a shame,” Aziraphale agreed sadly, watching Crowley stretch out on his sofa. He did like port. He liked Crowley stretched out on his sofa, too.

    Summary

    Take, for instance, the couple she’s consulting with this afternoon, for their upcoming October ceremony. Seemingly mismatched in every respect. The plump, fair-haired one looks like a parody of an absent-minded professor, as sketched by someone who didn’t bother to do much actual research; his clothes are so outdated it teeters on costume. He’s wearing a bow tie, and not in that reinvented hipster way. This is a bow tie unacquainted with the cycles of fashion, a bow tie that has never heard the word irony.

    His partner is a rangy, black-clad ginger in snakeskin boots. He has the look of a hungover rocker about him, and would somehow, even without the sunglasses he has fully committed to wearing indoors on a cloudy afternoon. He’s sprawled almost defiantly in his chair and keeps throwing dubious glances around Dr. Blackwell’s office, as though expecting a lightning bolt to strike him down for merely daring to be within spitting distance of a church.

    Summary

    Rodney breathes out, rough and exasperated. John thinks he might be the only one in the universe who can hear the tenderness contained in Rodney's murmured "you are so fucked in the head".

    A series of ways in which two people learn how to trust what's not being said.

    Because the meaning of life is "do the next thing", and we all carry the seeds of the past into our future. Futurefic, Rodney-centric.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Extremely painful, extremely painful, extremely painful.

    Medication for post loss, but i would also advise having something like "written by the victors" lined up

    Or, like... maybe "beautiful lifetime event" or ANY FLUFF, MY GUYS, AND SOME XANAX

    MY COMMENT:
    Well. I wasn't ready. But i know that Be The Serpent podcast has just such an overlap in their taste with mine that this would be excellent and fucking hell.

    "He plans to use the money to endow a grant for teaching mathematicians how to fly.)"

    KILL. ME.

    i knew!!!!!! But i STILL WASNT READY.

    The utter beauty of the insistence that it is terrible, unbearable, but also we persist, we continue, we are still bound into the warp and weft. It's the truest thing and i am so glad that the gratitude here is for getting what we have had. I have never felt grateful for the loss, only for what i had gained by having it to lose.

    Well. I dont know if i will ever read it again, until the day i need to remember again that i continue, that there is a next thing even when that is impossible.

    What a piece of writing.

    Thank you.
