    Summary

    Crowley and Aziraphale are neighbours. And...it does not go at all well, until it does.

    A human AU in which Aziraphale is a bookseller, Crowley is a drummer, and they are both petty disasters in the worst/best way.

    +++

    “So what’s your deal?” asked Crowley.
    “My-my-my deal?” Aziraphale stammered. “I’m a bookseller, is my deal.”
    “Oh,” they replied, sounding as uninterested as it was possible to sound.
    “It’s just, I couldn’t help overhearing, and --” Aziraphale swallowed hard. “You really are an accomplished musician. But I thought -- for after eleven PM -- perhaps we could reach some arrangement?”
    “Arrangement?”
    Aziraphale felt his his smile turning forced. “Such as, perhaps, playing the drums *before* eleven? Instead of after?”
    Crowley stared blankly at him. In fact he stared for so long that Aziraphale briefly wondered if he'd lapsed into ancient Greek again, which he was known to do in bad dreams or during panic attacks.

    Summary

    There are books missing from the library in the Abbey. A crime, Aziraphale suspects, that carries something much more serious underneath. He isn't expecting to deal with a demon summoned to kill him. He isn't expecting to find an ally in the oddest place.

    An ally, and something else.  

    “Okay, so. The thing is,” Crowley starts, shifting again in his spot, “uh, someone wants you dead.”

    Aziraphale blinks. “Pardon?”

    “Didn’t you hear me? Someone wants you dead. As in deceased. As in six-feet-under. As in–”

    “Alright, alright! That’s quite alright, thank you,” Aziraphale chokes out. “I still don’t see–” 

    Crowley heaves a sigh. “Listen, Angel.” He leans forward, elbows pressed against his knees, his hair falling around him like a curtain made of fire. He closes his eyes before continuing. “Truth is, someone summoned me to, er, to kill you, actually.”

    Summary

    In which all Aziraphale wants is to swoon in Crowley's arms, if Crowley would just take. A bloody. Hint.

    Summary

    Blackballed from the industry ten years ago, Anthony Crowley jumps at the chance to star in a new Regency romance miniseries with well-known gay actor Aziraphale Fell in the hopes that it will help him restart his career.

    The trouble is, Crowley has played all sorts of characters and for the life of him, he can't figure out why he's struggling to play the romantic lead opposite a man.

    Summary

    A few months prior to leaving the Dowling household, Crowley had downloaded Grindr for the sole purpose of catfishing randy morons. He was not expecting a paragraph that began with: ‘hello. I hope you don’t think this is too forward, but I couldn’t help but notice you have the most lovely nipples.’

     

    Crowley keeps trying to meet his Grindr fuckbuddy. Aziraphale keeps showing up at all his meeting spots. This is terrible.
