    Summary

    l’esprit de l’escalier: that feeling you get when you leave a conversation and think of all the things you should have said

    With his books and his clothes and other curiosities he’d collected since beginning his time in London, Aziraphale considered himself a curator of beautiful things. He found beauty in people too, in the way they moved and spoke and laughed.

    This man, who was very nearly past him now, almost gone, shook him. He couldn’t understand why. There was an impulse to reach out, to wrap his blunt fingers around the man’s skinny wrist on his handlebars, say “Hello there, might you have a moment to explore why I’ve fallen in love with you just now?”

    An adaptation of Jean-Pierre Jeunet's 2001 film Amélie, as part of the GO Romantic Comedy Event

    Summary

    Aziraphale watched Crowley, caught behind a glass barrier, unable to touch Aziraphale, and felt a frisson of satisfaction. Crowley was panting, still fully dressed but jeans undone and slung low around his hips. One of his hands was pressed yearningly against the barrier, dark-tipped nails scratching the glass as his fingers unconsciously flexed against it. Aziraphale made a little “Hmm!” of contentment at the vision, and decided to reward Crowley. He pulled himself a little higher on the bed where he lay displayed before Crowley, and deliberately opened his legs wider, bending one leg at the knee a little.

    Summary

    He’s halfway to the door, heart beating in his ears, chest aching with shallow breaths, when something in the tangled pile of blankets on the floor catches his eye. He turns on a heel and snatches the tartan pajama shirt from the pile, glaring at it for any signs of damage: singed edges or torn buttons or ichor stains. The only thing out of place is the fraying seam of a sleeve.
