    What if Tony ran away, rather than return to his Malibu home? What if he became Iron Man from the corner of a mechanic's workshop in India? What if he and Bruce met up before Helicarriers existed?

    What if Steve Rogers recognized the face of a dead man? What if Fury told him Iron Man is a terrorist? What if he and three very special agents looked for the armor but found the Hulk?

    Summary

    It’s 1895, and Aziraphale runs an old-fashioned apothecary shop with his brother Gabriel. Crowley is a pharmacist secretly planning to take over their business. But after he meets Aziraphale, the most adorable and trusting person ever to walk the Earth, what starts as an semi-innocent flirtation rapidly turns Crowley into a pining mess. This calls for a change of plans...

    Basically lots of flirting, Crowley's ridiculous internal monologue and a close encounter in a very small shed, followed by rather a lot of angst and misunderstanding (but I promise it’ll all be lovely and fluffy in the end).

    Summary

    Aziraphale is reduced to a quivering mess just looking at Crowley’s face smiling up at him from the programme, let alone sitting in the front row of the theatre watching him perform, or standing face-to-face with him, with Crowley's hand on his arm, after he summons him to the stage to help him with one of his tricks...

    When Aziraphale reveals that he too is a magician and the two actually become friends, Crowley soon realises that someone has severely knocked Aziraphale’s confidence, and becomes determined to do whatever he can to restore it.

    Summary

    Newton was watching him as he glanced back and saw that someone had been thoughtful enough to provide him a chair.
    He pulled it up and sat down, wincing and stretching his bad leg out in front of him.
    “Hello Hermann,” Newton said and there was a hint of a sneer in his voice.
    “Hello Newton,” Hermann replied, “How are you doing today?”

    Summary

    When Dr. Newton Geiszler got dressed the morning after, he put on a suit.
    Meet the new Newt, he thought. Stressed, possessed, and well fucking dressed.

    Essentially, an exploration of the many cries for help Newt made that went unanswered, and then the aftermath. (Which is softer and gayer than it would probably realistically be, but Uprising was angsty enough.)

    Summary

    There was a faint tracing of scales along the woman's cheekbones, tracing down her thin arms and lean thighs. The nipples on her pale, almost flat breasts were dark as night. Fiery red curls fell over dagger-sharp shoulders sprayed gently with more black scales, and the golden eyes were wide and snake-like. The woman was beautiful, but hardly human.

    "Crawly," the woman said with disgust. "Was that the best you could do, angel?"

    "I said I didn't have much imagination." Aziraphale's lips were heavy, and she was almost sure she wasn't forming the words properly. There was some kind of spell over her, holding her almost immobile. The venom must have been paralytic. If she had been human, she supposed she would have been dead. Her corporation didn't like it much either. "What name would you prefer I use for you?"

    The stranger tipped her head on one side, considering. "Crowley?"

    Aziraphale almost laughed. The whole situation was simply too irritating. If she was to die now, at the hands of some local deity, the paperwork hardly bore thinking about. And her precious work on Sappho's poetry, gone.

    "Crowley, then. You're a nymph of some kind, I take it?"
