    Summary

    The first time Crawley meets the angel, the celestial being is twisting its shining white robe in its fingers and looking wretched. It hardly spares him a glance as he shifts from snake to human, and Crawley is a touch put-out. It’s taken some practice to be able to do it so fluidly.

     

     

     

    A story of Crowley's thoughts about Aziraphale, from the Beginning to the present day.

    And also of temptation, and want, and whether - for a Fallen Angel - redemption is possible after all.

    Summary

    It's sometime later, still dark or maybe dark again, when the door to his flat opens. He wakes, startles, then whimpers. Every tiny movement feels like the knives are still hacking away at him. Where was their cold efficiency then? No, they'd wanted him to suffer. They'd succeeded.

    "Oh." That voice again, and in the room this time. Crowley would weep, but he's not sure when he last stopped. "Oh," Aziraphale says again, "oh, Crowley."

    "They took them," Crowley moans, pitiful even to his own ears. "They took my wings."

    Summary

    After a long night of planning and practicing to escape the judgment of Heaven and Hell, Aziraphale and Crowley prepare to leave Crowley's flat on the morning after the cancelled Apocalypse.

    Although it's understandable if Crowley's not in any hurry to let the night end.

    ++++

    "What have you done with my trousers, you impossible thing?"

    The evidence around the room suggested they'd taken off only a few items of clothing before Crowley had run out of patience and snapped his fingers, with an impulse that went something like "Trousers off NOW and pants too thankyouverymuch and also the sodding SOCKS and there's sock garters as well are you fucking kidding me angel BEGONE THE LOT OF YOU"

    Much could go wrong with a miracle that haphazard. In his defense, he'd been distracted at the time.

    "I think they're, um...elsewhere," said Crowley.

    Aziraphale tutted at him reproachfully.

    "Sorry, angel."

    "I had those made-to-measure in 1952," Aziraphale muttered. "I was rather fond of them."

    Crowley sniffed. "Not to split hairs, but that pair was actually only a few hours old."

    Summary

    Aziraphale Z. Fell is a rising star of the spiritual literary genre - the next Eat Pray Love guy - and his version of Chicken Soup For the Christian Soul is flying off the shelves. It's not that he's not grateful, but it's one thing to enjoy a career in writing and another completely to be pigeonholed into a specific genre, so much so that you are almost forbidden from writing anything else.
    So yes, maybe he has a bit of a secret. An outlet for his less... appropriate urges. And yes, if his typical readership got word of the sort of paragraphs he could put out on a particularly inspired night, they might suffer some form of heart attack typical for their age.
    But all of that is well hidden, and there is absolutely no way anyone would ever find out about his Arrangement with A.J. Crowley - the most debaucherous romantic fiction author of the decade.
    That is... until they have to pretend to be married to each other.
