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.

Crowley blinked. Then a faint, sly grin crossed his face as he sipped his gin.

"I could live with that."

Aziraphale switched from embarrassed to slightly suspicious at that grin. What was that all about? Hm.

"Don't have a couch," he observed suddenly, as if this had just occured to him.
Anthony J. Crowleyh8_ineffability on May 5th, 2006 04:29 am (UTC)
Crowley gave him a baffled look.

"How can you not have a couch? Ever'one has a couch, angel. Even I have a couch."
bookish_angel on May 5th, 2006 05:46 am (UTC)
"I have chairs," Aziraphale said, as if this explained everything. He even had one that was upholstered with a tartan pattern, which Crowley would definitely comment on if he saw it.
Anthony J. Crowleyh8_ineffability on May 6th, 2006 01:05 am (UTC)
"Couches are better than chairs," Crowley told him loftily. This may or may not have been his true opinion. It could just as easily have been an excuse to amuse himself with a stupid and pointless drunken debate.
bookish_angel on May 6th, 2006 03:42 am (UTC)
"Howso?" Aziraphale asked curiously. He was vaguely aware that the conversation was quickly teetering off topic, and although he was now really wondering what had caused that grin, he wasn't sure he should ask.
Anthony J. Crowleyh8_ineffability on May 6th, 2006 04:48 am (UTC)
Crowley thought about it for a minute. And a very recent memory came to his aid.

"You can have sex on couches," he told Aziraphale solemnly.
bookish_angel on May 6th, 2006 06:42 am (UTC)
Aziraphale's mouth opened then quickly shut and he blushed.

"Oh," he finally managed to get out, though his face was still bright red.
Anthony J. Crowleyh8_ineffability on May 6th, 2006 02:44 pm (UTC)
"I win," Crowley said, looking more than a bit smug. He was singularly pleased with himself. Not only had he rendered Aziraphale speechless, he'd made the angel blush. Aziraphale was adorable when he blushed.
bookish_angel on May 6th, 2006 06:45 pm (UTC)
"You're incorrigible, Crowley," Aziraphale muttered, still looking very pink.
Anthony J. Crowleyh8_ineffability on May 7th, 2006 03:29 am (UTC)
"Always been, angel. You know that," Crowley said, still smirking smugly.
bookish_angel on May 7th, 2006 04:52 am (UTC)
"In that case, no wonder I don't have a couch," Aziraphale muttered, staring into his glass as if it were something fascinating.
Anthony J. Crowleyh8_ineffability on May 7th, 2006 07:18 am (UTC)
"Prude," Crowley accused, grinning madly.
bookish_angel on May 7th, 2006 09:05 am (UTC)
"Guess so," Aziraphale replied, refusing to take it as an insult.
Anthony J. Crowleyh8_ineffability on May 7th, 2006 03:52 pm (UTC)
"Heh. You never change."
bookish_angel on May 7th, 2006 06:58 pm (UTC)
"Neither do you," Aziraphale countered.
Anthony J. Crowleyh8_ineffability on May 8th, 2006 02:36 am (UTC)
"Suppose not. Not in the ways that really count, anyway," Crowley said thoughtfully.
bookish_angel on May 8th, 2006 04:23 am (UTC)
"S'alright. I wouldn't want you to change," Aziraphale said, having finally managed to compose himself. As well as he could when he was more than a little drunk, anyway.
Anthony J. Crowleyh8_ineffability on May 8th, 2006 06:12 am (UTC)
"S'good to know. I don't really want me to change, either."
bookish_angel on May 8th, 2006 07:51 am (UTC)
Aziraphale let that hang in the air for a bit before speaking again.

"So what now?" He asked suddenly.
Anthony J. Crowleyh8_ineffability on May 9th, 2006 06:10 pm (UTC)
"I dunno. Sober up, go home, get some sleep?"

It didn't really occur to Crowley that Aziraphale may have been asking more in the long term.
bookish_angel on May 10th, 2006 01:34 am (UTC)
"Mm. Probably should, I guess..."

He wasn't really sure, now that he thought about it, exactly what he'd meant with that question. Oh well. The present came first... Everything else would fall into place.
Anthony J. Crowleyh8_ineffability on May 10th, 2006 02:29 am (UTC)
"Hate this bit," Crowley muttered, then winced as he wished himself sober. "Ow. It's better than the hangover, though."
bookish_angel on May 10th, 2006 02:41 am (UTC)
Aziraphale followed suit, grimacing slightly. He never could quite get used to that.

"Yes... though this wouldn't have been a really bad one. We've gone through twice as much as this before, easily," he said thoughtfully.

Well, not we we, he amended mentally. But close enough.
Anthony J. Crowleyh8_ineffability on May 10th, 2006 04:43 am (UTC)
"I've had my hangover for the decade not too long ago, thanks all the same," Crowley said, making a face. He reached over to pick his sunglasses up off the table and put them on. "I guess I'd better be going... Places to go, people to see, stuff to pack."
