From lywinis via tumblr: Please tell me how much Aziraphale loves the written word. Notes: This is my first non-OC related work in a long time.
As he watched them stumble in the desert heat, swinging a flaming sword wildly in an effort to protect themselves from the various creatures ready to devour their flesh, the Word became sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow. The Word professed a plan, and Aziraphale watched, discomfited, as the two journeyed on.
And he stumbled before the Word, half-finished excuses evaporating on his lips before they became falsehoods, certain that the Word would discern the thoughts and intentions of his heart. But the Word fell silent, turning into naught more than a whisper of desert wind. And so for a couple of centuries, there was no Word. If the Word had been present, perhaps it would have given voice to how Aziraphale had begun to look forward to these coincidences, a fact that Aziraphale tried very hard to hide and deny to everyone including himself.
But then the humans created another Word, the kind of word pressed in clay, etched in stone, and eventually flowed from ink to paper. The Word became lowercase, then, except in cases where the Word itself was recorded as words. He still remembered his first. He had seen the written word before — the Epic of Gilgamesh had, of course, been written several centuries prior, with many other stories since — but this was the first time the words had tugged at him, compelled him.
Eleventh century, Japan; Heian period. He and Crowley had been sent by each of their Head Offices to cultivate peace and war, respectively, in the budding, prosperous nation.
It was brilliant, salacious, and so very un-Word-like that at first Aziraphale read it in darkness, under the shelter of his futon, as if it would hide him from any seeing eyes. He's not one of your lot, is he?
With a name like that," Crowley rose a brow, setting his book aside. A more recently rebelled angel. Castiel, you're familiar with Crowley," Aziraphale introduced politely. You mean like us?
He was a bit stiffer than Aziraphale, but he wagered that had more to do with their time on earth than their personality differences. Let me just go and get it for you," Aziraphale nodded as if remembering something suddenly.
Crowley half expected the new angel to avoid sitting next to him. He wasn't commonly liked amongst the heavenly, in fact Aziraphale was the only one. However, Castiel sat, giving Crowley an easy smile, seeming unbothered by the demon's company.
He should have felt uncomfortable being surrounded by heaven's greatest warriors, but Aziraphale was no threat and this Castiel didn't seem to be a threat either. Just not endearing. He threw his arm along the back of the couch.
It showed how comfortable he was. Stay, you two obviously don't see each other very much," Crowley gave a wave towards Aziraphale who looked equally surprised and annoyed by Crowley's reaction.
The demon would never admit he was curious about Castiel. The only angel he really knew was Aziraphale. He was eager to learn what made Castiel rebel. Castiel shot Aziraphale a look that was almost asking for permission. He had always enjoyed Castiel's company, but he didn't like how much Crowley seemed to be enjoying it. He didn't like how comfortable Crowley was with the other angel.
He might not have cared if it was just a human, but it was another angel. He was supposed to be the only angel Crowley liked. I've not been on earth long really. I have a few human friends but sometimes I enjoy just traveling on my own. Az told me I should try as many different foods as I can. It took some getting used to, but I've become a rather huge fan of pie. We should get some pie sometime, angel," Crowley was clearly talking to Aziraphale, but he didn't look away from Castiel.
He had tried several types, but he always went back to apple. Aziraphale tried to ignore the way his stomach knotted.
Crowley wasn't usually so nice. You haven't a lemon in your tea, do you? Before Aziraphale could respond Crowley's attention was back on Castiel. What for? Aziraphale felt his jaw tighten slightly. He wasn't normally short tempered but Crowley's interest in Castiel was testing that. What made you rebel against hell?
Crowley's eyes shot towards the angel across from them.
