    This was marvelous, absolutely marvelous. Perfect book cadences, absolutely Pratchett-esque.

    Summary

    Lord, Aziraphale thinks, does he know? Can he tell that the last wall Aziraphale had built up in his mind has come tumbling down? The clink of their champagne flutes at the Ritz might as well have been the trumpets of Jericho.

    Aziraphale says what he needs to say, and two touch starved immortals wonder if wrist kisses can cause discorporation.

    Summary

    "I'm in a bit of a pickle, my dear," Aziraphale said over the telephone.

    Crowley was seized by immediate fury. Not even a decade, and they're at it again, he thought viciously. You'd think they'd be embarrassed enough to stay out of things for a few centuries at least, after botching the apocalypse like that.

    "Who's done something to you?" hissed Crowley.

    "Ah," said Aziraphale, in the quiet tone of someone who didn't mean to learn someone else's secrets and was mildly sheepish about it. "This crossword clue -- I'm stuck -- 1980s French fencer, thought you might know. It's eight letters and has a Q in it."

    "Trinquet," Crowley snapped, in the tone of someone who had revealed one of his secrets and was annoyed about it.


    An account pertaining to the cultivation of figs, the ecstasy of St. Theresa of Avila, the ontological uncertainty of mammoths, the nature of temptation, 2001: A Space Odyssey, and the ten years following the end of the world.
