Anthony J. Crowley, Retired Demon and Airbnb Superhost - TheOldAquarian - Good Omens (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
In which there are the AirBNB reviews for Crowley's flat. This made me laugh out loud in public more than once as I was reading it.

Sailor Moon and the Gorgeous Meditation | Tor.com
It means that Sailor Moon, as a hero, discards no one to their inner demons. She doesn’t fight monsters; she fights monstrosity itself, in whatever form it takes, in whatever host it inhabits.

What Would Root by Katie Farris | Poetry Magazine
it was May, it was May, and the air was sweet
with pine and Island Mountain lilac. The squirrels,
I mentioned them already, etc, and the lizards
ran down the spines of rocks like a bad feeling. I
could see everything: red-headed hummingbirds
dipped their beaks into the little red hoods of penstemon,
and I, a redhead, could hear everything: a red-crested
woodpecker, who was not offended I did not know his name.

Deku Sees Dead People - PitViperOfDoom - 僕のヒーローアカデミア | Boku no Hero Academia | My Hero Academia [Archive of Our Own]
In which Deku was never entirely quirkless. This fic made me cry real tears which is always a good sign, but I'm also just very, very impressed with how deft this close-AU is at handling things from the series in different and, frankly, dead interesting ways.

The Shape of Queer Liberation: On the Geometry of Promare
PROMARE SAID GAY RIGHTS!!!
There’s a place for subtlety in art, but there’s also a place for distilled simplicity. And the more I think about Promare the more I feel a burning need to shout from the rooftops about the sheer elegance and power of the visual symbolism of shapes. Triangles — the burnish flames, sparks, broken glass, Lio’s earring, the sharp edges of Lio’s Mad Burnish suit, the triangle mosaics on Lio’s burnish sword, triangular ash floating upward in the triangular firelight, the triangular peaks of a volcano looming. Rectangles — lawns and buildings and city blocks of Promepolis, blocks of ice, the barrel of a freezing gun, cubical elevators, cubical cells, cubical restraints, tiled rectangles of windows and doors, rectangular barriers. The moment I knew I was watching a masterpiece was when I noticed that even the lens flare effects of the sunlight in the rectangular city of Promepolis are rectangular. This is not a world in balance.

English Is Not Normal
When saying ‘eeny, meeny, miny, moe’, have you ever felt like you were kind of counting? Well, you are – in Celtic numbers, chewed up over time but recognisably descended from the ones rural Britishers used when counting animals and playing games. ‘Hickory, dickory, dock’ – what in the world do those words mean? Well, here’s a clue: hovera, dovera, dick were eight, nine and ten in that same Celtic counting list.

Republic of Heaven Community Radio - ErinPtah - Fail_Fandomanon RPF, His Dark Materials - Philip Pullman, Welcome to Night Vale [Archive of Our Own]
In which there is the Night Vale of Lyra's world, a weirder, wider, void, filled with even weirder, wider stars. A truly epic fusion that has action, romance, and a whole lot of weird science. Loved it to pieces even though I haven't listened to an episode of WtNV in years.

Star Power - TurtleTotem - Captive Prince - C. S. Pacat [Archive of Our Own]
In which Laurent is an actor trying to get out from under his manager's thumb and Damen is the lead singer of a mega popular band in the process of imploding. As a modern AU, it works in so so many ways (uncomfortably comparable to real world re: Epstein, etc). Writing is just serviceable, though it certainly gets the job done.

these furious passions, these chances - Ark - Good Omens (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
In which Aziraphale confesses, just after the church, and makes a deal with his devil.
“No,” says Crowley, but he’s gentle about it. “My thanks, but I think we both know that isn’t possible. One night, and back to how it was before.”
Aziraphale swallows, his throat tight. *One more week, perhaps,* he wants to propose. *One year,* he wants to say. *One whole war. One lifetime. Another, and the one after that. I didn’t know, Crowley. I didn’t understand what it would be like. I didn’t know what we were.* The words are so thick in his mouth as to be unspeakable.

Good Neighbours, Good Fences (and Other Misunderstandings) - out_there - Good Omens - Neil Gaiman & Terry Pratchett [Archive of Our Own]
In which they are regular people who happen to live in the same apartment building. AND IT'S DELIGHTFUL. The humor! The romance! The getting the thing you always wanted just after you stopped hoping for it! What a good fic.
He's spent the last three nights there. Any more would be overstaying his welcome, especially when it's not needed now. Sure, it was nice to fall asleep beside Aziraphale… well. Nice isn't the word for it, not really. It's been the warmth of shared meals and shared smiles, the sweet respite of someone who listened to Crowley's petulant whining and still ran him a bath. The comfort of falling asleep to the lamp on and the rustle of pages turning and the weight of fingers playing with his hair. It's been comfortable and homey, settled and easy in a way that feels stolen.

Insha’Allah by Danusha Laméris | Poetry Foundation

A Time For Sleep - lamardeuse - Good Omens - Neil Gaiman & Terry Pratchett [Archive of Our Own]
In which Aziraphale takes his first nap, with Crowley's guidance. This is 1000 words of utterly swoon-worthy romance. I feel bad posting a big quote from a short fic, but like, READ THIS:
“Oh, blast, I'm going about this all wrong,” Aziraphale huffs, covering his face with his hands. “It's only that I'm so muddle-headed, you see, and I –”
 
The words stutter to a halt in Aziraphale's throat when he feels cool fingers brush against his own, pry them gently away from his face.
 
Crowley is suddenly very close, and his eyes are the eyes of someone who's been waiting a very long time. His hands, which are still gripping Aziraphale's in the small space between them, are trembling ever so slightly.
 
“You're doing fine,” Crowley rasps. “You're doing fine, Angel.”

Make Me a Headline (I Want to Be That Bold) - dicta_contrion - Harry Potter - J. K. Rowling [Archive of Our Own]
In which Draco stops, or maybe starts, running scared, and goes back to Harry after he ghosted him 10 years ago. The Draco in this fic is so, so, sooooo stupid, but in a way that hurts good. Harry is less stupid, but no less heart hurty. For a fic that goes quite public with Harry's facefucking kink, this fic was a lot more subtle than I was expecting. I really liked the author's sparse prose. Minimum number of words, maximum number of feels.
“Yours or mine?”
“Yours?” Draco’s heart hangs from his ribs. He’s asking for something more, now. Asking to go back to something that’s more than just Harry’s house.
“Yes,” Harry replies. He nods and repeats the word. “Yes.” He drops Draco’s hand to step through the Floo.

What I Learned on Medieval Twitter | Public Books
A ubiquitous trope in contemporary internet culture is what the media scholars Whitney Phillips and Ryan Milner call “the presumption of the weirdness of digital content.”6 Comedy on the web is often existential comedy, in the term of the philosopher Agnes Heller, in which absurd events are taken as part of the natural order.7 The next link, the next tweet, the next viral phenomenon is always apt to show something completely different from what came before; and we tend to cope with the abruptness and contrariety of this information overload with humor that leans hard on the absurd.
Medieval content works remarkably well with this style of expression. A doctor calmly applying a sword to a patient’s head, Saint Anthony resignedly enduring an attack from fishlike devils, Saint Lucy presenting her eyes on a plate: without context, these images are surreal, and even with context, they’re often richly silly.

Sudden and Surprising Moments of Overwhelming Affection - darcylindbergh - Good Omens - Neil Gaiman & Terry Pratchett [Archive of Our Own]
In which Crowley finally realizes, at a very strange moment.
“I’m saying,” Crowley says loudly, trying very quickly to find anything to say at all that will put a stop to the rant he can see building in the line above Aziraphale’s nose, reaching for anything, stumbling head-first over his own brain like stepping into a surprise roller-skate, half-falling, half-flying down a flight of stairs, landing hard at the bottom and spitting out the truth, “that you’re perfect.”
