'"The handwriting on the first spells is far too legible to be Satan's," Aziraphale reasoned, reasonably, like a reasonable person who had just critiqued Satan's penmanship.'

Halloween may be over, but that doesn't mean we have to retreat from the gothicky side of life, dearest nerdlets!

And what I have for you this week is both gothicky and fun as all hell! (Pun unintended, but now I'm actually quite pleased with it.)

This week fic combines Good Omens with Hocus Pocus.

I'll let that sink in...

This fic combines this -

Aziraphale (Michael Sheen) and Crowley (David Tennant) drinking in ancient Rome

With this -

Winnie Sanderson (Bette Midler): Dost Thou Comprehend?

I'm lucky enough to have seen Good Omens with my brother, who has an Amazon TV account.

(Those of you with a scarily accurate memory of my life might know that I have Netflix purely because my brother has a spare device allowance. He had to be good for something, I guess.)

...And I was scared it wouldn't live up to the hype, but honestly I love it! It's hilarious.

Something I wouldn't have thought of though was combining it with Hocus Pocus! 

Props to the fic writer, really!

There are SPOILERS for both Good Omens and, to a lesser extent, for Hocus Pocus, so be aware of that!

This fic isn't heavy on the plot.

Which to be honest feels like a good thing.

It doesn't get over-complicated, it just revels in the random bizarreness and banter that introducing these characters from two very different - but, when you think about, very similar - franchises.

This week's fic, then, my dearest nerdlets, is:

Hell and Back by anticyclone

Are you a Hocus Pocus fan?
Have you seen Good Omens?
Would you have thought of putting them together?!

  1. I’ve actually never seen Hocus Pocus, despite it being a Halloween favourite for pretty much everyone! I usually stick to the Disney Channel Halloween movies.
