So Azira and Crowley are in a relationship together? I wonder how the kids'll turn out.
Finally, I remember to do a signature! Oh the wonder! Oh the happiness! ... I don't even have a snappy remark to make.

D: I am in DESPAIR! The lack of a snappy remark for my signature has left me in despair!

Ooh I got it!

Azira....Crowley.... CHIIIIIIIIIIIIBIIIIIIIIIIIIIS!!!!! (flying-tackle-glomps)

Seriously. I want to make those into plushies. Crowley's pout is frigging adorable, as is weirded out Aziraphale.

BTW, Mars, Aziraphale calls Crowley "my dear" or "my dear boy" omn a regular basis. When he was sent to England, he kind of went native. But since Erin ships Crowley/Aziraphale, it could be that too. ^_^

Azira and Crowley are not necessarily in a relationship, but they do "work together" (as equals, not master/servant).
In a nutshell, they have an "Agreement" to cooperate so that neither Heaven nor Hell would get too much of a lead over the other side, thus ensuring they won't have to work themselves to the bone to out-compete each other.
Azira also does some tempting for Crowley while Crowley does some of Azira's miracles for him, but that's just for the sake of convenience and reduction of transportation time.

Aziraphale addresses Crowley as "dear" all the time in the book. The book also says the following: "Many people, meeting Aziraphale for the first time, formed three impressions: that he was English, that he was intelligent, and that he was gayer than a tree full of monkeys on nitrous oxide." And at least one other character mistakes them for a couple (this after Crowley addresses Aziraphale as "angel" ).

So if you're getting the impression that they're in a relationship . . . that doesn't necessarily mean anything, except that they're written very close to canon ^_~

Geez... Donnie and Crowley agreeing on something... that's got to account on some figure.

Yeah, but it's still fun to tease them as the old married couple.

Well, that goes without saying. :D And today's comic is fun. I knew it felt like something was missing... the strip needed that word!

Adorable!?! That's just plain SICK!!! Aziraphale, an angel... and Crowley... the serpent that tempted Eve!?!

:-?

Well... I guess that was just something platonic. Aziraphale probably just said that as a figure of speech.


Oh, Zira says "dear" all the time. Crowley calls him "Angel", as you may have noticed. It has led to misunderstandings in the past. And yes, they do work together. He did not mean anything creepy by it. Nor did I, actually, I just liked Crowley's expression and the interaction in general. But you can interpret that as something else, I guess. there are certainly plenty of people who like the pairing. I am occasionally one of them, but I kind of just like the relationship they have in the book. it is, weirdly enough, cute.

Sounds like a reasonable compromise to me. Then again, I'm not an angel, demon, papermaster, or vampire.

...I doan think I understand. Why's he trust a teenage girl with a vampire over his trusted book-loving friend? Unless he knows something about the British Library that Donnie doesn't...yet.

Wow, that's a short storyline. Better than a long one I suppose.

Woohoo! Thanks, Erin! :shucks: Now, is it because Azira knew the library would burn down, or because he knew about something... else?

'Limited release competed'? Okay, I would like to know what Yumiko had told Walter before all this happened!

Oh... and I would like to know the next title for the next thread... just for arguement's sake.
