    Summary

    To be quite honest, Aziraphale hasn’t felt truly safe since the Arrangement began. He’d always been convinced discovery was right around the corner. Some nights he’d simply paced his shop and wrung his hands, wondering how he would protect Crowley when the time came. And now here he is, roaming barefoot throughout Crowley’s flat with a cup of warm tea cradled between his palms.

    Summary

    What is the meaning of life? - of love? - of the universe? Do things truly happen for a reason or does God play dice with the universe?

    The "Law of Attraction" says that similar things end up gravitating towards each other, but the idea of "Opposites Attract" says otherwise.

    Which are we to believe?

    For Crowley, a mechanic at Temptation Tune-Up, opposites attracting seems to be a far stretch when he meets Aziraphale, a local literature professor at Niel University. Two very different people orbiting around each other's world, yet somehow gravity is pulling them closer together.

    With the help of Anathema Device, a woman with a knack for prophecies and reading between the lines, along with a few other friends, will Crowley be able to win Aziraphale from his fiance Gabriel? Or will their plans of convincing Azirphale that Crowley isn't too different fall flat and break them apart?

    Based on the 1994 movie I.Q., Aziraphale and Crowley test the very laws of science for the idea that love has no law.

    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?”
