    Summary

    It's nothing to worry about, Aziraphale says. Just a malfunction in his corporation: sometimes, when he worries too much, he has fits.

    He just needs to learn to control himself better, right?

    5 times Aziraphale was blindsided by panic attacks + 1 time Crowley helped him through it...
    --
    The first gasping, wheezing breath frightened him – he hadn’t known it was coming, had forgotten his body could make that noise. He tried to force his body to calm down, to breathe normally but there was another, and another.

    I don’t have time for this, he thought desperately as tears began to run down his face. I need – Crowley needs a solution. Now! Before they – before they—

    The more urgent his fear, the more his body failed him, wheezing like broken bellows, trembling. The sound of his blood pounding in his ears grew louder, louder, like the voices of demons, whispering, laughing, plotting.

    Summary

    Versailles, 1769 - Aziraphale has a blessing to perform at a masquerade ball and it's important that he gets this one right. So important, in fact, that he can't seem to leave until he does.
    But with a fancy dress, an attentive demon and an endless supply of champagne, it's a little challenging to stay on mission.

    Summary

    In 1923, there was a chance. They could've kissed down there in that speakeasy, trying and failing to dance. They could've acted on mutual want. They parted ways instead and didn't speak of it again.

    But a century later, there's more than a chance. They're on their honeymoon and no one can tell them no.

    Summary

    O lost days of delight, that are wasted in doubting and waiting!
    O lost hours and days in which we might have been happy!
    But the light shone at last, and guided his wavering footsteps,
    And at last came the voice, imperative, questionless, certain.

     

     

    A smutty beach fic with a happy ending. Not as angsty as the title might suggest.
