Heigh-ho...  
Crowley was driving about the city in the Bentley. Rather randomly, if truth be told. He didn't really have a destination in mind, he was just getting to know the place. Taking note of anything that looked interesting, or anything he might want to revisit. There was a restaurant, there was an electronics store, there was a...

There was a bookstore. A very strangely familiar-looking bookstore.

The Bentley screeched to a halt, Crowley unheeding of any commotion he might be causing. After a few moments, he pulled over and parked, sliding out of the Bentley slowly. He stood there for a minute before stepping up to the door. He glanced at the sign, the illegible listing of the store's hours, just like the one he'd seen a thousand times elsewhere.

"I'm going to bloody well regret this..."

He pushed the door open and stepped inside, letting it close behind him.

"Big snarling wolfy things with wings. Tim told me the name for 'em, but I can't remember it right now," Crowley replied, making a dismissive gesture with one hand.

"Oh my. I do hope that they don't do anything like that here," Aziraphale said, glancing towards the front. The mess that it would make... Terrible.

He finished off the rest of his glass and reached over for the wine bottle, noting that it was nearly empty.

"You can just miracle it fixed," Crowley pointed out, finishing his drink. He poured the last of the bottle out with slightly exaggerated care.

Azirphale drained the rest of his glass. He was definitely getting tipsy now.

"Well, yes, but..." He didn't really like the notion of watching his nice books getting all torn up like that. "Imagine if it were your car getting torn up. That's what it would be like."
Anthony J. Crowleyh8_ineffability on March 17th, 2006 08:05 am (UTC)
"My car did get torn up," Crowley reminded him, lifting his glass to take a drink. "Back during the whole end of the world business. Utter loss. Wrecked. Adam fixed it, I still don't know how he managed that. Then again, he's the AntiChrist, and I'm not."

"Yes, I know that," Aziraphale replied patiently as he worked on getting the second bottle of wine open. "I was just being...um... metaphorical, yes, that's it. For that matter, my shop burned down completely, but I still have all of my books, plus a few extras," he said, gesturing around vaguely.
Anthony J. Crowleyh8_ineffability on March 18th, 2006 02:28 am (UTC)
Crowley peered at him a bit suspiciously. "You can't trust metaphors. They're sneaky buggers. Anyway, I've still got my car, too. ...What were we talking about again?"
bookish_angel on March 18th, 2006 05:10 am (UTC)
"Er, before metaphors?" Aziraphale finally managed to get the bottle open. "Dunno... Something about strange creatures. Sounded like demons of some sort, to me."
Anthony J. Crowleyh8_ineffability on March 19th, 2006 01:49 am (UTC)
"Right... Wolfy..things. Not demons. I know a demon when I see one crash through a skylight, and they weren't," Crowley replied, shoving his glass towards Aziraphale for a refill.

"Not everything's a demon, just because it's nasty-looking. There are more things in Nexus and Earth, Aziraphale.... Something or other. Can't recall how the last bit went. Something philosophical."
bookish_angel on March 19th, 2006 06:14 am (UTC)
"I'm aware of that, yes," Aziraphale said as he filled up Crowley's glass. "It's just that the first thing I thought of was a hellhound with wings. Probably because you said they were snarling and all..."

He stared contemplatively at his own empty glass.

"'There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of in your philosophy.' S'from Hamlet. Act one, scene five, I do believe."
Anthony J. Crowleyh8_ineffability on March 20th, 2006 12:29 am (UTC)
"Oh yeah, that one. Depressin' play, Hamlet. I told him not to write it, y'know. I said to him, 'Will, nobody's goin' t'want to see a play where everybody dies. People go to plays t'get away from reality.' Jus' goes to show, even I'm not right all the time," Crowley said thoughtfully, picking up his glass and drinking.
bookish_angel on March 20th, 2006 07:46 am (UTC)
"Things are different... Were different, then. But of course, it's still a literary classic, isn' it? Humans are strange sometimes."

He reached over to pour himself another glass of wine. It took him a few seconds to get things properly aligned.

"D'you think we'll need more to drink?" He asked, looking over at the bottle of gin.
Anthony J. Crowleyh8_ineffability on March 21st, 2006 03:23 am (UTC)
"Amen," Crowley muttered. "Inna manner of speaking, o' course."

He sipped his drink and glanced at the bottles. "Might. Dunno."
bookish_angel on March 21st, 2006 04:25 am (UTC)
"I'm feeling much better now, actually," Aziraphale commented. Of course, he couldn't exactly remember why he'd been uncomfortable in the first place, but that was the whole point, wasn't it?
Anthony J. Crowleyh8_ineffability on March 21st, 2006 07:50 am (UTC)
"Yeah. Me, too," Crowley agreed, taking another drink. The nagging voice in his mind was all but gone. This was Aziraphale. From his dimension or not, what did that matter? And now that he wasn't bothering about that, he felt better than he had in months. The angel sitting across from him, alcohol sitting in front of him, all was right with the world.

"Have you read the book about us?"

Random conversation-starter, of course, since he'd utterly lost the thread of what they'd been talking about before.
