    Summary

    “I - You see, it’s - “Aziraphale hiccups, waving his wine glass lightly. “It’s one of those things that’s ‘Not Done’ - C’pital letters an’ all. God gave you this form and you best be grateful. Take care of it - preserve it!” He’s clearly repeating something that has been snapped at him in the past. If Crowley had to guess, he’d put money on Sandalphon. The prick.

    “Bodies aren’t museums,” Crowley says, putting his glass down and rubbing his eyes tiredly. “‘Preserve it’, like you’re a mummy. Egyptians’re wild, weren’t they?”

    “It’s bad taste to change something God gave you,” Aziraphale continues. “Implies that you think you could do better than Her, ‘pparently.”

    “PShhT!” Spittle flies. “Psht. PSH. ‘S dumb.”

    In the way he only does when spectacularly plastered, Aziraphale pops the “p” on his, “Yep.”

    Summary

    He can’t do this.

    “Can I—” he bursts, stops, overflows again. “Would it be too terribly forward of me to ask—”

    This is so much. How can small words hold so much? Perhaps he can keep it in, after all. If the words can hold it, maybe he can too. Maybe he won’t crack and rupture.

    Or: After the bus ride back from Tadfield and the erstwhile End of the World, Aziraphale reaches his breaking point.

    Summary

    And was it really that simple? One piece of forbidden fruit? Crowley was looking at him, his eyes like falling stars.

    “Could I tempt you?” he asked, and Aziraphale laughed.
