Friday Fics Fix - Hijinks Ensue To A Soundtrack of Queen Music


'He had slept every night since they’d defied Heaven and Hell and it was becoming a bit of a habit.'

'Fics Fix!' with purple background and white lightning bolt shape

A lot of Good Omens (GO) fanfiction tends to revolve around the ship 'Ineffable Husbands' 

- and this week's fic rec is no different.

(Fandom notes:

Ships are relationships between characters which are supported by fans. Some ships are canon (i.e., official in the source material,) but many are the creation or strongest wishes of fans themselves.

Ineffable Husbands is a romantic and/or sexual relationship between Aziraphale and Crowley from Good Omens.)

For those not familiar with GO, here's the gist:

Aziraphale = Angel

Crowley = Demon

Hijinks ensue to a soundtrack of Queen music.

Crowley (David Tennant) to Aziraphale (Michael Sheen): We have to work together
Via Giphy

Obviously, there's a bit more to it than that -

- there's an intended apocalypse via Anti-Christ, the ongoing war between heaven and hell, and the tempestuous interactions between angel and demon, as well as those between a witch and a witch-hunter.

...If you get easily offended by fantasy creators playing around with Biblical themes, this probably isn't the show for you, lol.

Anyway, this fic picks up after the end of series 1 - literally just after series 1.

As such there are SPOILERS everywhere, OK? SPOILERS IN THIS FIC!!!

So that's the whole schtick of this fic: 

how Aziraphale and Crowley pick themselves up after the events of series 1.

(And because this is fanfiction, said picking themselves up includes kissing.)

Only a couple of Content Warnings for this one:

- general demonic and religious symbols, references, etc.

- references to torture/execution

- references to previous suicidal tendencies

- references to general violence

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

Open your eyes, look up to the skies and see by Azzy

Are you a Good Omens fan?

  1. I've never watched this show but one of my friends loves it because of David Tennant lol.

    1. Ofc, lol. And Michael Sheen rocks - he really doesn't forget about South Wales and does a lot to support communities here, especially in Port Talbot.

  2. Oh! How did I miss this post? I LOVE David Tennant so much (I have since I first saw him in DW), and Good Omens was a ton of fun, and his chemistry with Sheen (I mean...acting chemistry 😂) made it twice as enjoyable. BTW, both men have their hearts in the right place, of which I'm so glad - I couldn't be a fan otherwise. I'm typically not a fanfic gal (though I used to read Charmed stories when the show was on), but I read the one you linked to, and it's so exquisitely written, and I could really see David and Michael acting it while I was reading. And OF COURSE I can't wait to watch S.2!

    1. I love David Tennant too! And Michael Sheen is a good Socialist Welsh boy who does a *tonne* of work here in South Wales to help people out. Plus, he's like a batty Welsh uncle - everyone has an uncle like him somewhere! Lol.

      Ooh I'm glad you enjoyed it! I read a *lot* of fanfiction. Like... a *lot.* - I've always thought it's... and this is going to sound gushy, but that's me talking about fanfiction... I've always thought it's proof of the *life* of stories - they meld, they merge, they evolve - they're a living thing, and fanfiction is a perfect example of that!
