Happy Holidays, Circeniko!

Summary & Pairing: Normal boys don't give presents at their own weddings. Unfortunately for Aziraphale and Crowley, Adam Young has never been a normal boy. (Crowley/Aziraphale, implied Adam/Pepper)
Author's Notes: Very big thanks to C. and E., my real-life betas, who Do Not ReadTM m/m slash, and yet very sweetly read and re-read this until the last of my creative punctuation had headed for the hills. Any remaining errors are all mine.

Aziraphale had magnanimously pretended that Crowley hadn't sounded at all choked up when he said it.
*high-pitched squeal* Awww, warm fuzzies strike again!
And I do love drunken!Aziraphale. He's so clueless and adorable!
You had to already love him to love him.
And the epiphany goes to.... Seriously, I adore this line. So perfect for them.
Absolutely wonderful. Fantastic and touching and awwwwwww-inducing.

Thank you! :D I endeavor for "Awwww" in my little corner of the internet, so hurrah! I'm very glad you enjoyed it.

This is absolutely fabulous!! Your characterization is perfect; I don't think I've ever seen better (except by the Two Gentlemen Themselves, of course). It had just the right balance between super hot and awww so sweet.

"Crowley, that was - that was way too much information, for one, and also, simply not true." Loved that line! That one made me laugh out loud for sure.

What a great idea, too. Giving them both what the other already had. Perfect!

Oh. Oh, my dear. So very wonderful. The perfect point/counterpoint, the perfect balance between POVs. And breathtakingly lovely language.

Aziraphale felt the slow burn of Crowley's blood beneath his hands, lust and beautiful desperation at Aziraphale's every withheld touch... ...a scorching desire that Crowley basked in as though it were the sun, and he some insignificant and worshipful flower... instead an angel, who Crowley blessed with his kisses, who Crowley baptized with his tongue, who Crowley prayed to with hands and lips

Each of these lines left me almost choked with tears, I tell you. They have always struck me as being the way you wrote it: Crowley already wanting, Azi already loving, and needing Someone Else to give that "nudge" to make the obvious and final connection. Thank you so much for writing this. It is Love.

This is just lovely. You capture Crowley's vulnerability perfectly. And Aziraphale is perfectly rendered, too. And Adam.
Basically you nailed them.
And you got Crowley and Aziraphale to nail each other which automatically gets the Seal of Approval! :-)
Bravo!

Thank Adam! ^^;


Oh, this has some wonderful little quotes:

You had to already love him to love him. (AW!)

whole volumes written on give and take that Crowley had never before felt the need to comprehend, although he thought he had studied this, before


And, by the by, the phrase "trouser region" was also endlessly entertaining.

Crowley also finds Aziraphale's trouser region endlessly entertaining. :D

Thank you! I'm very glad you liked it.

So many people have already pointed out a lot of what I would say, but I love this SO MUCH - the characterization dead-on (love Adam's slightly mischievous, slightly exasperated manner--no, no, sometimes what's so obvious to him isn't always to other beings!) and it's just so perfect: the nudge in the direction of the missing piece each has, complementing each other perfectly. It's sexy and funny and sweet and just right.

Okay, I'm totally dying laughing over your icon, but in between the dying, I would like to say thank you! I'm very glad you licked it. :D

LMAO! Oh my, that was brilliant. This bit- I've now managed to prove that I'm easy even for a being of Hell, since I don't think any of my fellows has ever been buggered by an angel on the back table of a bookshop, under the watchful eye of wall-to-wall shelves of horrified Bibles, had me in stitches!

This was a wonderful fic. Such a nice thing to read when I should be writing final papers. Aziraphale and Crowley are so cute when they're clueless. Good on Adam to be the voice of reason.

Crowley & Aziraphale. A meddling Adam Young. Writing that just kicks my ass. Go for my weaknesses, why don't you. ♥

Why thank you my dear! :) I'm very glad you enjoyed it.

And yes, *gnaws on fandom's Achilles heel*. That's half the fun!

eeeeeeeee! So much wuv! X3

Drunken Aziraphale, hurt and sniffly Crowley, too-wise Adam, Pepper . . . all of them just made me want to go on a hugging spree. I really love this fic. o.o I shall point my gf to it post-haste.

Devious and fun and sexy as hell. Marvelous, the way each character feels just right, and as always, Adam is just such great fun XD

Loved it!
