  2. Summary

    Some scientists believe that the term 'universe' isn't actually correct. Evidence shows, so they claim, a multitude of universes all co-existing within the span of all that is, each arranged so that the spaces in one universe are not the spaces of another, and it is not choice that frames the multiverse they argue for. It is difference.

    Indeed, one science journal, dedicated to a layman's understanding, compared the theory to a child's "Spot the Difference" puzzle. The journal goes on to note that there is more space in between the electrons of an atom than space taken up by them, and notes that all it would take is an infinitesimal shift to the side for a new universe to be layered over, as though the sum of existence is some grand collage.

    And like a collage, there are places where the universes touch. Of course there are, according to the journal, because despite there being enough space in existence for every possible difference conceived, space is finite, all the same. Layers have to overlap, just a little.

  4. Summary

    Sans remembers this myth, an urban legend

    About a deity who vanquishes despair

    In darkest times, he comes with a guiding hand and a sweet voice

    Why does he feel so familiar? Why does it seem like the connection he had is something more?

    Some call him "the Exalt"

    Others, "The Herald", and other such names

    "The Seraph" is the most common.

    He's called many names, but a lone flower and a determined human child call him "Pappy"

    Summary

    Crowley had, in the six thousand years Aziraphale had known him, shed his skin exactly twice that Aziraphale knew of. Both times he had disappeared without a trace, having retreated somewhere very safe and very, very unknown to hide while he was so vulnerable, and Aziraphale had never thought to ask beyond that information. Everyone was, he had supposed at the time, entitled to their secrets.

    The problem was that he had stumbled directly into this secret now, and there was hardly a graceful way out of it.

    Summary

    Things were Good. And when Things are Good, one should be grateful for that instead of pointlessly pining for more, wouldn't you agree?

    While there certainly were universes in which Things could be described as Great or even Wonderful, it seemed wiser to Aziraphale not to dwell on that. After all it would not help anything, and one would do better to remember they were lucky enough to have avoided adjectives such as Bad, Disastrous or Reminiscent-of-the-smell-of-wet-dog-and-farts (not your typical adjective, yes, but still functional).

    So if you were to ask Aziraphale about Things, he would offer you a polite smile and reply that oh it's all good, really, thank you for asking, although a small part of him might be thinking I suppose I would be happier if someone finally got rid of this elephant that has been sadly trumpeting in the room for about six thousand years, but then again is it really smart to move an elephant when you have no idea what it has been standing on this entire time?

    Summary

    Once upon a time (in the year 1594), a playwright asked an angel and a demon to say some lines from a play he's working on. Several hundred years later, Aziraphale hasn't stopped thinking about them.
