nyaww, the A/C ones are adorable!
Although with Penance: where did the pillowcase come from? I get the impression there's supposed to be a small timeskip there but I can't figure out where it is. The crowley bending clause looks to be dependant on the 'and although' clause, which means it IS what came next, and there's a random pillowcase there.
Mind you I've had very little sleep, so perhaps my comprehension isn't up to scratch.
There is a time-skip; it's implied that this is happening perhaps half an hour to an hour later, most probably upstairs in the much-neglected flat that I theorize is above Aziraphale's bookshop. I felt that if I put in more of a transition, it'd feel more awkward, demand a full-blown seduction scene. And given that these are drabbles? Not so much.
(I.e. it's in the phrasing "And although what came later was...")

Mkay. :D Evidently the transition isn't clear to me but I'll come back when I have half a brain and see if it looks better then!
All you need to know is that they eventually got from where they are now to a bed ;)
AHAH that makes so much more sense. I read it four or fives times over as 'although what came next was'. NOBRAIN right now.
Can I offer you some tea, darling? Or maybe you'd be better served crawling back into bed. I had trouble getting out today myself...
*eyes teacup* That might be a good idea. I need to fortify myself before trying to figure out where the hell my sheets are, and then making my bed.
Went away with the CMS undergrad mob for the weekend. Loopy director of the centre decided he wanted a mob of twenty-something medievalists drinking in his house on the coast for two days. Got drunk one night, sleep deprived the second, and exposed to poisonous personality of our resident alpha female for the whole time. End result = total incoherency.
I've been marking papers all weekend. Not happy-making.
"At least what I was waiting on was worth it," Crowley said, just loudly enough.
Eee, these are lovely! I adore the idea of them cooking together, and I love "Penance" as well :D
Aziraphale and Crowley really got a lot of screen-time in these requests!
Thank you. It's beautiful. It's all right as long as they're together.
Northeast snow-storms cause shit like this all the time. If I could count the number of times we never made it to grandma's until nine or ten at night because of accidents ahead of us on the road...
But yes, Billy gets there in the end.
I think maybe that's the difference between the Northeast and the Midwest. There, people think they have to get somewhere, and here we just say, "Well, shit," and hunker down until it passes.
D'awww... The Good Omens ones were beautiful. Though I agree with the above comments by saying the timeskip in the first one was a bit unclear. I had to reread that bit three times, myself.
Later is the best I could do, given the space-constraints! I'm already one of those people who disregards the 100-words-on-the-dot definition of a drabble as it is ;)
*giggles* I can just picture Sam in this!
1: They killed twenty little birds! It's a bit horrible, actually. I'm so sorry, way to epically miss the point, I know.
2: Oh, A/C angst is so hard to get right. It's inherently present, due to the whole "star-crossed lovers" thing they have going on, but it's difficult to balance that with the light-hearted nature of the source material. (Although Good Omens is actually heavily philosophical. Oh Terry Pratchett, I love thee so.)
4. Awww, they are cooking a meal. That is really pretty hilarious.
1. Yes, they did. Hobbits are very hungry creatures, alas!
2. I feel there's a very good balance of angst and humor in the book, which is why I love it so much. Well, and them.
4. Crowley would rather drink Holy Water than spend more time than he has to in the kitchen, I'm convinced. And while Aziraphale kind of likes being there, that doesn't necessarily mean he's especially skilled in cookery. That turkey is doomed.
LOL 20 partridges is 5 each, that should be enough!
Thank you for this delightful glimpse of menu planning!
That's what I'm thinking! Any fewer and they'd be fighting over the scraps.
The Good Omen drabbles are lovely, but I'm totally in love with the Sandman/TDK one you wrote. That's not what I would have imagined, but... Somehow both Joker and Delirium, with one trying to kill the other, are perfectly spot on.
Red flowers, indeed. :D
I feel that Joker sort of does inhabit the headspace that Delirium represents; I imagine that, in the event he got those by inflicting them on himself, it was done in that headspace and he just never left it. To have Delirium symbolically doing the mutilating seemed...appropriate. I'm glad you liked it!
tripping off into the dark
Man, such a nice touch. :D I love intriguing crossovers, and that one worked really well!
Thank you! That one took a different direction than I'd expected, but it felt like the right one.
AH It's been so long since I've read anything A/C...thank you for bringing it back into my life in such a lovely manner :)
:DD The last line of Doing it Wrong is just soo adorable :D
You're welcome! I always love writing them <3
Oh man, the A/C ones really got to me. Lovely stuff.
Delirium and the Joker! *dances* That is just perfect.
And well, the hobbits just made me go 'aww' in all their glorious domesticity. ♥
I don't usually go all angstmuffin with those two, either *scratches head* Having a bad week, I guess.
Glad you liked these <3
Came here via Belleferret's rec. Was giggling muchly about the twenty partridges!! :) Thank you!
...she recced it?! Kind of her, although it's a tiny thing and not, I feel, so very exceptional. Thank you, too!
Here via Belleferret's rec. I love the image of Sam studying this little bird in consternation, wondering how he's supposed to feed four hungry hobbits.
Your work generally elicits one of those extremely contented/euphoric sighs.
LOVE the GO drabbles! And the others too--although I'm not too sure what "Chamelon" is from. It was really interesting, though!
Vacancies. I try to hit at absences that need filling. I can only hope I'll never lose sight of that objective. I'd run around and try to save all the stories I loved if I had the time :-P
"Chameleon" is a Dark Knight/Sandman crossover: Joker and Delirium.

Hee, yes - I think I had seen that a while ago!
