    Summary

    Crowley arrives injured at Aziraphale's door. He takes care of him, reads him an awful lot of Mary Oliver, and knits elaborate metaphors for his insecurities (literally).

    Summary

    Crowley attempts to sleep off recent events. It's a form of self-defense.

    Aziraphale putters, and thinks, and finally acts.

    Part 1 takes place between the bus ride home from the apocalypse and ice cream in the park.

    Humans will go about and muck things up and perform minor miracles of their own, and that is still joyous, wonderful. Because Aziraphale loves humanity—more than he was meant to. It's not generalized enough, a kindly and paternal distance from them. It's up close and messy: he's coveted their food, glutted himself on their words, succumbed to the sloth of a long afternoon with their wine.

    And still, it is not nearly as close and messy as the way he loves Crowley.

    Summary

    “You never talk about it,” Aziraphale said.
    Crowley, drowsing on the sofa with an open book covering his eyes, didn’t answer for a moment. Then he took the book off his face and said, “Talk about what?”
    But he knew. It was in his voice, clear as anything.
    Aziraphale hesitated, trying to figure out if there was a way of saying it without actually saying it. There wasn’t.
    “The Fall,” he said. “And… before.”
