Characters/Pairings: Crowley and Adam Young; background Aziraphale/Crowley
Rating: PG-13 [SFW]
Word Count: 2,000
Warnings: Recent political events (on both sides of the Atlantic)
Notes: I've used part of my recipient's prompt, which is itself a quote, as both title and epigraph. Too telling and timely. The other part of the prompt explicitly asked for a conversation between Crowley and Adam on the nature of evil, so that's what this is. Happy Holidays; may you spend this dark season with family you trust, be they found or otherwise.
Summary: “One can't be too careful even now,” said Crowley. “You were my responsibility, and, to an extent, you still are. At least that's how I look at it. It wouldn't do to find out you've still got some funny ideas you can't quite put to rest. So, you know, thanksss for humoring an old serpent's paranoia.”
