    Summary

    The Blind Baker is one of Eos most popular Messengers. Patron of travellers, refugees, lost children and cooks of all kinds, he is "the Lamp in the Dark that heralds the return of the King of Light". He is honoured in roadside shrines and kitchen altars, he is spoken of in scripture and in children's tales, and he has been in countless movies, plays, novels, comics, and songs.

    But who is he? What are his origins? The Cosmogony teaches that the King of Light was raised up by the Astrals to watch over the Star so that never again would Eos be plunged into darkness. Who, then, was this herald-turned-Messenger? Who was the man who was raised up to divinity, and what did he do to deserve it?

    Summary

    Perhaps… perhaps that’s what the difference was. Aziraphale had never outright said no, not in all the centuries of… whatever this was. And… and, well, it hadn’t exactly gone well the last time Aziraphale had expressed any sort of reticence towards Gabriel, and things had definitely... not gotten worse, of course, there was really nothing untoward going on, not really, they’d just sort of... escalated since then, but… but maybe, maybe if he just flat-out asked Gabriel to stop…

    An angel wouldn’t force themself onto someone else. Would they? That surely had to be a sin. And angels were sinless beings, weren’t they?

    Aziraphale suddenly recalled his own tendencies towards indulgence, his food and his scrolls and all of his worldly habits. Angels certainly could sin.

    But not like that.

    Right?

    Summary

    After bringing the cure to France, Napoleon points out that the execution of a Chinese prince - even an adopted one - may well spark a war between China and England. Laurence grudgingly agrees to stay in France with the expectation that he and Temeraire will live a long and boring life away from any fighting, but he doesn't expect Napoleon's persistence.

    Summary

    I prompted this MYSELF on the Kink Meme and then got obsessed with it and had to write! "It's still the early 1960s. Charles grew up devoutly religious, went to seminary and took orders.

    And for the few years he's been a priest, he's been a good one. He coordinates volunteering and assistance for several charities in New York City, where his parish is, and doesn't mind the life of poverty he leads (though his sister Raven sometimes comes in from upstate to ask him if he doesn't miss champagne at all.)

    Then he comes up with the idea of partnering with a Jewish organization that helps the poor, which meets with some resistance from the Catholic brass -- but Charles is firm that all children are God's children and they should do what's right.

    Then he meets Erik Lehnsherr, the devout Jew and Holocaust survivor who runs that other charity, who is so fiercely protective of his charges that it moves Charles' heart -- and the first time their eyes meet, Charles has to confront the greatest temptation he'll ever know, and the church's teachings about what love is."

    In this AU, Charles has powers - he just doesn't know it.
