    Summary

    “Oh, I should never have left you alone in the nineteenth century. Music hall, magic, incredibly expensive gay clubs. All your most embarrassing impulses were just to left to scamper around unchecked”

    Stage magic is about the art of deception, making it unsuitable – if not actually impossible – for those of an angelic nature. Over a century later, Aziraphale believes himself to be a much more adept liar than he used to be, but when he looks through his old thwarting ledgers he’s surprised to discover the identity of the person he’s been consistently deceiving for the past six thousand years.

    Companion piece to Still My Heart Has Wings.

    Summary

    As soon as Aubrey Thyme, psychotherapist, had opened her office door and seen her new client, Anthony J. Crowley, sitting in her waiting area, she was observing and assessing him. At first glance, she paid attention to the following:

    --His clothing was expensive and stylish;
    --He wore very strange but noticeable cologne;
    --His relationship to the seat he occupied could only, very loosely, be described as “sitting;”
    --He looked angry;
    --He was wearing sunglasses.

    What Aubrey Thyme, a professional, thought, upon first seeing her new client was: you’re going to be a fun one, aren’t you?

    Summary

    Aziraphale put a hand on his shoulder. "Bad dreams," he said. It wasn't a question. He'd seen it before, but never quite this bad.

    "Yeah. Just... happens. When I sleep, sometimes. Nothing to worry about."

    "I, um... I get assignments, from time to time. To talk to people in their dreams. I know the bad ones. I didn't... I couldn't, I won't step into your dreams without your leave," Aziraphale continued. "But I could help. If you want."

    Summary

    Contrary to ethereal gossip, neither Heaven nor Hell had laid claim to the creation of dreams. As for nightmares, both sides were certain that they were of human devising.
