    Summary

    "I'm in a bit of a pickle, my dear," Aziraphale said over the telephone.

    Crowley was seized by immediate fury. Not even a decade, and they're at it again, he thought viciously. You'd think they'd be embarrassed enough to stay out of things for a few centuries at least, after botching the apocalypse like that.

    "Who's done something to you?" hissed Crowley.

    "Ah," said Aziraphale, in the quiet tone of someone who didn't mean to learn someone else's secrets and was mildly sheepish about it. "This crossword clue -- I'm stuck -- 1980s French fencer, thought you might know. It's eight letters and has a Q in it."

    "Trinquet," Crowley snapped, in the tone of someone who had revealed one of his secrets and was annoyed about it.

    Summary

    When the Lord Herself wants to look into the human world, She rarely takes a direct peek from Her place in the cosmos. For starters, Her unfiltered gaze can scorch the planet if She isn’t careful, and there are enough things working against Earth these days; it doesn’t exactly need Her help being destructive. On top of that, when you exist in all eleven dimensions, you don’t always understand what you’re seeing when you’re only looking at a couple of those. No, God uses a conceit She’s quite proud of whenever She gets the urge to go visit Her human Earth.

    She unravels Herself from Her own high-stakes game of cosmological poker, and goes to play the earthly version.

    When God wants to drop in on humanity, She goes to Vegas.

    Summary

    The important thing, Crowley tells himself -- the most important thing -- is Adam, his brilliant, creative, empathetic nephew. Being fourteen's hard enough on its own, the kid didn't ask to deal with the weight of the world on top of it.

    And if taking care of Adam means Crowley has to tough it out at a job he can’t stand, so be it.

    And if Crowley's job means that Adam’s charming English teacher is NOT a romantic possibility, well, that's just how things go.

    But the occasional drink with Aziraphale proves hard to resist. They frequent the same pub, so who can object to them saying hello? Briefly sharing a table? Perhaps a little conversation? The painful knowledge that it can’t be anything more -- not without somebody getting fired or sued or both -- well, that can't be helped.

    Until Crowley stumbles onto a terribly reckless idea...

    Summary

    Crowley receives a commendation for a bad job well done, Aziraphale receives a reprimand for too many frivolous miracles, and the two wind up in Paris at the same time and in need of excuses to cover their own behinds.

    A story told in a series of letters, commendations, and memos, in which Aziraphale lies, Crowley pines, and neither can admit how much they miss each other.
