    Summary

    " “Are you hurt, my dear?” Aziraphale couldn’t see anything wrong with the demon, other than the fact that he wasn’t exactly, well, a demon.

    Crowley shook his head again, but less violently. This was good, at least, he wasn’t hurt. But why wouldn’t he just answer the questions? Aziraphale thought he knew the answer, but it still was difficult for him to get out.

    “Crowley, can you not turn back into your human form?”

    This was met with another shake of the serpentine head, and Aziraphale’s heart sank.

    “Oh. Oh dear.” was all that the angel was able to say. "

     

    When Crowley transforms into his snake form and is unable to change back, Aziraphale must put aside his feelings and anxieties and try to find a cure. Luckily for the angel, their relationship can't get MORE complicated with Crowley as a snake. Or can it?

    Summary

    Aziraphale and Crowley survive the Not-Pocalypse and profess their love for one another, but Aziraphale has tremendous anxiety about pursuing a physical relationship with Crowley. He genuinely wishes to move forward, but past fears surrounding touch, intimacy and body image are prohibiting him from acting on what his heart (and corporation) really want. Crowley is ready to go as slowly and carefully as needed to be there for his Angel as they pursue their new "Arrangement" step by careful, sweet step.

    Summary

    "SCP-001 is a humanoid entity, approximately 700 cubits in height, located in an undisclosed location near the intersection of the Tigris and Euphrates rivers...A weapon, possibly a sword or knife (SCP-001-2). The weapon appears to emit flames at a temperature rivaling that of the sun, based on spectrographic analysis, although there appear to be no destructive effects from the intense heat on the surrounding area...

    Observers have reported that SCP-001 appears to be standing in front of a gate of immense proportions. Long-range photographs have occasionally detected what appears to be a pastoral grove within...as well as several fruit trees of unknown composition. Of particular note are two fruit trees of immense proportion near what appears to be the center of the grove: one, it is noted, appears to be an ordinary apple tree, although the other bears a fruit unknown on earth..."

    Summary

    “I know you said no to Alpha Centauri, but I figured that Portland is a bit closer so I thought, uh, you might want to, you know, take a road trip?” The demon looked abashed, and Aziraphale suddenly realized what he was asking. Neither of them knew how much longer they had, and Crowley was offering them an escape, even if just for a bit. It might be a mistake to continue fraternizing, and it might be their undoing, but what if... what if it was their saving grace?

    This is a rewrite of the rambling fic that isn't quite going in the direction I like. The old version is still posted, but I think this one is better.

    Summary

    Crowley had wondered if the close confines the Fallen had been made to set up in were supposed to be some sort of ironic punishment-through-excess sort of thing. That must be it. The angels Up There must make a frequent practice of casual touch, without the stipulation of being forced into it by circumstance, and the principality missed it since he was on Earth so much of the time.

    Summary

    Crowley has been a constant in Aziraphale's life until he took his 86 year nap. Since he saved the Principality back in 1941, things have been different. Now, its 1958 and Aziraphale finds the times changing too quickly for him to keep up with Crowley. Very loosely based on Grease/Cry Baby.

    UPDATE: I have decided to rewrite this as I have decided to go in a different direction. I will not be posting any updates here, but the link below is for the version I intend to finish. Bear with me, as I think this newer version is going to be better.

    Summary

    When an angel goes six thousand years being told he is doing a mediocre job, eventually that angel starts to believe that he's the one that's mediocre.

    Thankfully Crowley is there to set him to rights with some cocoa and chocolates.

    Prompt: Touch-starved Aziraphale and Crowley fluff.

    Summary

    Based on the thought that haunts my mind daily: What would've happened if Sister Mary hadn't interrupted Aziraphale and Crowley when she did?

     

    "Nice is a four letter word, and I will not have you thinking or saying I am anything of the sort. Understand, angel?" Crowley finished.

    "Even though you and I both know you are?" The words left Aziraphale's mouth before he could think to stop them.

    Summary

    Worried that Crowley will eventually grow tired of him and the Arrangement, a lust-struck Aziraphale pulls out all the stops to make an impression with his temptation abilities. Only, tempting a demon who already finds him irresistible may earn the angel more than he bargained for...

    ______

    Crowley crossed one long leg effortlessly over the other, set aside his dark glasses, and fixed the angel with a smoldering look and a wicked grin.

    “Tell me, angel. Do you like what you see?”

    Summary

    "You know he needs touch?"

    "Yeah," Crowley says, following Adam's gaze to Aziraphale. "I know. We'll figure it out, he and I. We always do. Eventually."

    Summary

    Inspired by a comic by @usedtobehmc on Instagram. If you review all six episodes, no one touches Aziraphale with any kindness. Given his propensity to visit the barber, his book character's manicures, his propensity for tight-fitting waistcoats and being totally covered at all times, and his love of eating, like many other writers, I came to the conclusion that Aziraphale is touch-starved, and that Heaven is even worse than Hell in many ways.

    CW: mentions of past physical abuse and being touch-starved, as well as mentions of anxiety without mentioning the word.

    Summary

    Aziraphale asks one too many questions.

    What is Heaven to do with their wayward Principality?

    Crowley picks up the pieces.

    Summary

    All they’re doing is holding hands. So why does Aziraphale feel like he’s about to melt in Crowley’s grip?

    The Apocalypse has been averted, and Aziraphale is (mostly) out of Heaven’s control, and finally free to express himself how he wants. The only question remaining is whether or not he can actually manage to do it.

    Summary

    Aziraphale has a sore back, and Madame Tracy has An Idea.

    Or: the one in which Aziraphale is a lonely bookseller with questionable friends and he’s quite ill-equipped to deal with a snippy masseuse who could really do with a little more manners (and a lot less sex-appeal).

    Summary

    He’d gone six millennia circling around the angel, barely ever touching, and that had been fine.

    Well, mostly fine. Probably not at all fine, but at any rate, it wasn’t that the desire hadn’t been there, but…well, he hadn’t really let himself feel it. But then Aziraphale had taken his hand on the bus from Tadfield to London, all exhaustion and relief and new-growing terror over what their respective sides might do next, and even though he knew it had just been the desire to hold on to a friend when everything else had slid away and come undone, something had awoken and refused to go back to sleep. The something ranged from a persistently mewing kitten to a starved, roaring lion—he’d tried for a snake metaphor, because that seemed more fitting for him, but frankly, snakes were a good bit easier to manage than whatever this was. Whatever this was needed near-constant supervision.

    Summary

    “Angels don’t… we don’t touch, Crowley. Ever. I mean, you went to Heaven this morning, you saw what it’s like these days.”

    These days, Crowley thought. Right. It hadn’t always been like that. His memory wasn’t clear, and certainly lacking something for being terminally cut off from God, but he didn’t remember it being so very cold.

    “What are you saying?” he asked.

    “It’s not that I didn’t like it, I swear, it’s just… so much.”
