    Summary

    Aziraphale has put memories away for centuries. Carefully filed them around far-flung corners of the island he has claimed as his Principality. As he and Crowley celebrate 1000 years of their Arrangement, he begins to wonder what he’s been missing. Crowley has plans of his own, plans that he wants to share. But with the angel looking to the past, he knows he’ll have to be patient about their future.

    Or:

    Aziraphale has hidden his regrets. Crowley has hidden his hopes. One day they’ll unpack them together.

    Summary

    the only surviving part of a longer saga

    Far from there the mighty Aelfstane       drove his foes toward the royal harbor
    Aelf and Dwarrow rode hard beside him       and behind them came the dead.
    Razanur, young Tuk, looked out       from the lofty Tower of Guard
    while thither rode his hearty cousin       Kalimac the Brandagamba,
    in the company of horselords.       Dear the cousins of brave Maura
    reckless Razar, joyful Kali,       though they saw the battle nearing
    still their hearts went ever to him       who bore the Ring to save them all
    Greyaelf, wise, the Fire Ring wielder       waited too, he knew ere long
    the Witch King, strongest of the Ring-ghouls       would come, and they would try their strength.
    All their eyes were looking eastward.

    Combines alliterative verse, kennings and epithets with the "real" Westron names for Frodo, Sam, and Gollum. Prof. Tolkien would be proud.

    Canon, just canon. But holy smokes, the Unpublished Epilogue -- when I dreamed about Frodo/Sam before I knew there was slash, I didn't pick up anything JRRT wasn't putting down.

    Summary

    The important thing, Crowley tells himself -- the most important thing -- is Adam, his brilliant, creative, empathetic nephew. Being fourteen's hard enough; the kid didn't ask to deal with the weight of the world on top of it.

    And if taking care of Adam means Crowley has to tough it out at a job he can’t stand, so be it.

    And if Crowley's job means that Adam’s charming English teacher is NOT a romantic possibility, well, that's just how things go.

    But the occasional drink with Aziraphale proves hard to resist. They frequent the same pub, so who can object to them saying hello? Briefly sharing a table? Perhaps a little conversation? The painful knowledge that it can’t be anything more -- not without somebody getting fired or sued or both -- well, that can't be helped.

    Until Crowley stumbles onto a terribly reckless idea...

    (This story was formerly titled 'Shotgun Wedding: sometimes a first date requires paperwork.' Some edits and updates to the text have been made as of Dec. 2021.)

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Human AU set in the Boston area: Aziraphale & Crowley are still Brits, but Tracy and Shadwell have accurate (tho different) New England accents. Aziraphale's characterization leans toward the book: he's not as anxious & fearful as he is in the series. His intelligence comes through as actual competence at teaching: he's not as detached as in the book, but he's grown beyond the kind of trauma he has in the series. Like the book, tho' it's an A/C romance it revolves around Adam, who is wonderfully characterized.

    Summary

    Centuries ago, Aziraphale and Crowley made an explicit agreement not to act on their love for each other because it was too dangerous. The most important rule specified that they were not allowed to touch each other. Post-Armagedddon’t, they begin to explore how to be openly in love by falling into in an increasingly steamy and emotional competition to tempt each other into being the first one to break the rules.

    Moving from a very constrained mutual love, to a musical mutual celebration. The soundtrack is *aces*.
