Good Omens - Fic Rec List


Note: I usually prefer Aziraphale / Crowley as asexual, but some of these fics have sex. In any case, if you are looking for pwp/smutty fic recs, this probably isn’t the list for you. Fics are in order of word length.

♥ - denotes favourite


Are You Sure? - by TheLadyZephyr - 350 words - T - First Kiss, Fluff

Written for the prompt “when one stops the kiss to whisper “I’m sorry, are you sure you-” and they answer by kissing them more”


Rescue by kristsune - 945 words - G - possessive!Aziraphale, BAMF!Aziraphale

Crowley gets kidnapped by agents of hell, and Aziraphale does whatever is necessary to get him back.


May your dreams last longer than the night by trace_of_scarlet - 1,447 words - G - Pining, First Kiss

The first time they touch is during that first storm, as the wind blows; Aziraphale’s sheltering wing brushes Crowley’s cheek.

Crowley thinks, it’s so soft. It’s strange: he had wings just like that so little time ago, but he’d forgotten, somehow.

(He still has wings, of course; they’re black and sleek, but somehow they don’t feel like those protecting him now.)


Shave and a Haircut by summerofspock - 1,470 words - G - Outsider POV, Canon Compliant, OC

Sometimes you just have to talk to someone and sometimes that person is your barber.


love as a four letter word by asideofourown - 1,644 words - G - Pining, Love Confessions

That four letter word, love— the way Aziraphale said it, like no other angel would, could… it wasn’t quite so bad as Crowley had used to think. Rather good, in all honesty. Rather nice.

Crowley gazed back at him. He felt naked, without his dark glasses hiding his eyes. “Angel,” he said hoarsely. “Just say you want to kiss me.”


Ruinous by obaewankenope (rexthranduil) - 1,692 words - M - Wing!kink, Sex, Praise Kink

Aziraphale’s wings are nothing like Crowley’s. They’re much smoother, less textured by roughness and a ten-thousand feet free-fall into boiling sulphur at the end. It doesn’t matter if Crowley fell eons ago, there is lingering, permanent damage to his wings. He cannot heal them from the damage and every moult that comes in bears scars that he cannot rid them of.


Observations - by Somedrunkpirate - 1,777 words - G - Missing Scene

The first time Crawly sees the angel, isn’t when they meet: he’s been watching, lurking and observing, like a proper demon ought to. When Aziraphale meets the demon, he’s seen Crawly before, as he is an ever presence in the Garden, the one the plants always warn him off.


listen (he’s already told you five times) by darcylindbergh - 1,891 words, M - Love Confessions, First Kiss, Fluff

Not everything Crowley says is said out loud. Aziraphale doesn’t always hear him at first, but he’s learning to stop being surprised.


About Face by Quandtuniverse - 2k words - G - Bodyswapped Cuddling

As they put Agnes Nutter’s final prophecy into action, Crowley and Aziraphale discover there is yet a new perspective to be gained about their relationship, 6000 years on.


Come up and see me (make me smile) by ineffably-effable (Daemonnisse)  - 2.8k words - G - Role Reversal

Aziraphale isn’t what Crowley expected.


Four times Crowley fails to cope with Aziraphale using a pet name (and One time he starts to get used to it) by TheLadyZephyr - 3k - G - Fluff

Six thousand years’ worth of countless iterations of ‘you go too fast for me’ have left Crowley utterly unprepared in the face of Aziraphale’s unguarded affection.


The Eyes Have It by MsThunderFrost - 3k words - T - Romantic Fluff - First Kiss

In which Aziraphale has been hopelessly in love with Crowley for six millenia, and it takes the almost-Apocalypse for him to realize it. Aka… Aziraphale really likes Crowley’s eyes.


Shall I Stay (Would It Be A Sin?) by WinterSky101 - 3.6k words - T - Touch Starved, Missing Scene

The Apocalypse has been averted, Aziraphale’s bookstore has been destroyed, and he can’t see any harm in going to Crowley’s for the night, not anymore.


good for the soul by singingtomysoul - 3.6k words - M - Getting Together

Aziraphale doesn’t feel guilty, for once, but has some things to confess.

Crowley doesn’t think he has guilt, and doesn’t plan to confess anything. On both counts, he’s wrong.


get religion quick (cause you’re looking divine) by brinnanza -  4k words - G - Post Canon - Misunderstandings

So it was fine. Even if Crowley couldn’t love him, he clearly liked him well enough, and that was almost the same thing.

It no doubt would have continued to be fine, or at least fine-adjacent, were it not for a narrowly averted apocalypse and several bottles of a really quite nice Riesling Aziraphale had found in the back room of his newly restored bookshop.


Any Other Name by mostlyanything19 (halfanapple) - 5k words - T - Idiots to Lovers

What if Aziraphale’s name was originally “Aziraphael”, in keeping with the conventional spelling and pronunciation of other angel names, but because of its divine nature, Crowley is physically unable to say it out loud.


On The Matter of Touch - by Somedrunkpirate - 9k words - Pining, Touch-Starved

For two ineffable husbands, they don’t really touch each other much. Here is a story on why that might be.


and, so on - by PaintedVanilla - 9k words - M - Post Canon, Sex, Past Lives

Crowley doesn’t remember heaven, but Aziraphale remembers him.


Slow by write_away - 9k words - T - Slow Burn, Pining, Anxiety Attacks

It started like this: A boy with the ability to warp reality met an angel and a demon and he made assumptions.

You might say it started like this: An angel and a demon found a marriage contract hung on the wall of the angel’s bookshop. They didn’t question it.

It also could have started like this: Once upon a time, the angel told the demon he went too fast. The demon took it to heart.


Wherever You Are, I’ll Come To You - by tickety-boo - 11k - T - Fallen!Aziraphale

“Are you alright? What’s all this about then?”

“Ah. Well. I might have slipped.”


“Took a bit of a tumble, I’m afraid,” Aziraphale said. “But, well. What’s done is done.”


small infinities and all that by JustStandingHere - 13k words - M - Bittersweet Aging, Slow Burn, Sex

Crowley and Aziraphale are turned human. This is the aftermath.


♥  ♥ It’s Getting Hard, This Holding Back - by ZehWulf - 13k words - T - Humour, Touch-Starved, Fluff, Petting

6,000-odd years is a long time to evolve a romantic relationship, but as a near-immortal being, Crowley had patience. True, they had lost momentum right around reaching the Speaking Looks and Meaningful Gestures stage, but at the time Crowley had been more or less content to let things idle.

Now, he was determined to shift things back into gear, and that gear was Explicitly Romantic Physical Expressions of Affection.


❖  The 21st Century, In Which They Finally Work It Out by chaya - 22k words - E - Slow Burn, Sex / First Time

This is light speed in comparison to the last few centuries of their relationship, but Crowley is barely holding on to his patience.
