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.

"Going to get another apartment?" Aziraphale asked as he slid his glass a little closer to Crowley.

"S'what I'm planning on," he replied, carefully filling Aziraphale's glass. He spilled a bit, but what did that matter? He went ahead and poured some gin into his own glass and put the bottle down.

"Mm, thanks."

He took a couple of sips of the gin. "Seen the park yet? There's even ducks... Lot like the ones back home."
Anthony J. Crowleyh8_ineffability on April 15th, 2006 07:06 am (UTC)
"Drove by. Not actually gone in and had a look yet," he replied, drinking his own gin.

"Been to feed them a couple times. They kept giving me looks... like they were waiting, er... expectant, yes, that's it." Aziraphale smiled. "Went and changed up the routine on them, I guess."
Anthony J. Crowleyh8_ineffability on April 16th, 2006 05:10 am (UTC)
"Odd birds, ducks. Guess it's not a bad way to live, though. Float around, quack at people, get fed... Good life for the lazy," Crowley mused absently.

"Must get dull after a while, though," Aziraphale said thoughtfully, reaching for his glass. He got it on the second try and took a sip from it.
Anthony J. Crowleyh8_ineffability on April 18th, 2006 03:38 am (UTC)
"...Maybe that's why ducks fly south in the winter?" Crowley put forth after a drawn-out moment of thought.
bookish_angel on April 21st, 2006 07:22 am (UTC)
"Wha's the word? Er... M-something. Anyways, do y'think they fly anywhere here? I don't think there is a south."
Anthony J. Crowleyh8_ineffability on April 22nd, 2006 01:43 am (UTC)
"Maybe for them, there IS one. Weirder things could happen, righ'?"
bookish_angel on April 22nd, 2006 04:10 am (UTC)
"Guess so... If that's true, you think there's a sort of Heaven an' Hell here, too? I mean, if there's a south for the ducks, it would follow... I think..." Aziraphale hadn't thought so, but what people believed in did strange things here.
Anthony J. Crowleyh8_ineffability on April 22nd, 2006 05:20 am (UTC)
A vaguely disconcerted look crossed Crowley's face. "...Dunno. I guess it's poss'ble. Not sure I like that idea too much."
bookish_angel on April 22nd, 2006 04:23 pm (UTC)
"But 's not our Heaven and Hell... Probably shouldn't worry too much about it," Aziraphale said decisively, taking another drink.
Anthony J. Crowleyh8_ineffability on April 24th, 2006 02:11 am (UTC)
"Guess not," he muttered, taking another drink himself.
bookish_angel on April 28th, 2006 03:52 am (UTC)
"Hmm. Almost out," Aziraphale observed as he studied the gin bottle.
Anthony J. Crowleyh8_ineffability on April 28th, 2006 05:08 am (UTC)
"Well, bugger," Crowley muttered, poking at the bottle. "Already?"
bookish_angel on April 29th, 2006 06:52 am (UTC)
"I know. That's the, er... third one, yes. Think we should get another?"
Anthony J. Crowleyh8_ineffability on April 30th, 2006 02:58 am (UTC)
Crowley pondered this seriously for a moment. "...Problem. Standing is be... be... Bugger. Beneath? Before? Beyond! Right, beyond me. What 'bout you?"
bookish_angel on May 1st, 2006 01:49 am (UTC)
"Ummm..." Aziraphale rocked from side to side a bit. "Dunno. Should I try?"
Anthony J. Crowleyh8_ineffability on May 1st, 2006 04:15 am (UTC)
"Depends. 'F you think you'll fall over or anythin', then nah."

Crowley poked at the bottle.
bookish_angel on May 2nd, 2006 08:42 am (UTC)
"Hmm... right. Almost suggested that we go for a drive, but... um, that would require being... er, not drunk."
Anthony J. Crowleyh8_ineffability on May 2nd, 2006 05:52 pm (UTC)
"Jus' a little, yeah. Don't feel like soberin' up," Crowley replied, nodding. He was feeling just a little lazy at the moment. And, you know, drunk, but that went without saying.
bookish_angel on May 3rd, 2006 06:48 am (UTC)
"What I feel like 's settling down on a nice couch with pillows, an' nice clas'cal music maybe, leaning against..." He paused, blushing a bit with embarrassment. Leaning against Crowley, of course. It struck him as a comfortable place to be, but... well, that sounded wrong. Or maybe it didn't, he wasn't sure.
Anthony J. Crowleyh8_ineffability on May 3rd, 2006 07:46 pm (UTC)
"Leaning against...?" Crowley prompted curiously, pouring out the last of the gin carefully.
bookish_angel on May 3rd, 2006 08:50 pm (UTC)
"Um, you," Aziraphale muttered under his breath. He rubbed the bridge of his nose. So much for being wisely silent. Oh well.
