    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.

    Summary

    Alec couldn’t remember the last time the Lightwood mansion had been so spirited.
    Even when their parents were away on business, the Lightwoods often had guests staying at the mansion, although it usually wasn’t for longer than for a night of festivities in the peak of the summer. Apparently - or so he had gathered from Isabelle’s fondly annoyed and persistent claims - this guest was special, not only because he wasn’t meant to stay for a single night, and not even because he wasn’t a potential business partner.
    “He is a celebrity,” Isabelle told him when he lifted an eyebrow at her, silently leveling her with a dubious look.

    The Victorian AU no one asked for, where Magnus and Alec fall in love through chess, poetry and whispers in the night, but nothing is that simple.

    He hadn’t expected a sudden lapful of angel.

    “Very sorry about this,” Aziraphale said, and kissed him.
