Is anyone going to talk about Crowley’s nanny name? Nanny Ashtoreth?
Ashtoreth (Astarte/Ashtaroth/Ishtar) is a Phonecian goddess that is broadly the representation of the moon and stars - to the Phoenicians she was only female, though as Ishtar to the Assyrian’s and Astarte to the Greeks she was more a they, androgynous -. She was one of the most highly worshipped goddesses and is reffered to in the Bible multiple times:
“33 I will do this because they haveforsaken me and worshiped Ashtoreth the goddess of the Sidonians, Chemosh the god of the Moabites, and Molek the god of the Ammonites, and have not walked in obedience to me, nor done what is right in my eyes, nor kept my decrees and laws as David, Solomon’s father, did.”
(1 Kings 11:33)
She is alternatively known as “the Queen of Heaven” (Jeremiah 44:25)
Crowley really just named his female form THE QUEEN OF HEAVEN AKA A PAGAN VERSION OF GOD, THE FEMALE FORM OF BAAL WHICH LITERALLY MEANS, “MASTER or LORD”
y’all are killing me with all this good omens art cuteness!
me: hmm, tumblr has a lot of issues and a lot of places are calling it a “dying social media site,” maybe I should switch
me: *tries to use a different social media with character limits, lack of anonymity, and posts in non-chronological order*
I legitimately just laughed for five minutes straight. Tears are leaking from mine eyes. My stomach is burning. I actually cannot stop.
Oh my gawd, I laughed so hard my face hurts.
FRIENDLY REMINDER THAT TREES LITERALLY ATTACK ISENGARD BECAUSE TOLKIEN WAS SO FUCKING PISSED OFF THAT SHAKESPEARE PROMISED MOVING TREES AND ALL HE GOT WAS DUDES HOLDING BRANCHES
of course he was
Alright, folks. Some notes first:
1. You all rock. I’m sending out 20k+ virtual hugs for all the notes I NEVER expected to get on this nonsense.
2. This is probably the final section, just because I’m not sure I can adequately follow up part one and it might be foolish to attempt it here. Let alone twice. But for now, here we go.
3. Kudos to the anon who reminded me of Aziraphale’s cash-only policy <3
4. Nicole Y’s review is based off an actual comment I read years ago, but heaven only knows where online it was. I’ve got the memory of a goldfish.
5. Trigger warning for the use of a queer slur in this. It’s the same review as above, number 5 if you want to avoid it.
6. There’s a text-only version of just the reviews at the end, after all the images. I’ll upload that to my Sparse Clutter collection on AO3 in a bit.
Bonus 7. People thinking this is a real shop deserve all the good things in this world.
That’s all I’ve got. Hope you enjoy! 👍
Reblogging for hot twink Crowley.
failed magic trick
This is amazing. I legit cackled when I saw this. Also I love the idea of the conversation that would follow:
Crowley: Care to explain the horror show in your fridge?
Aziraphale: Well, I’m sure I’ve mentioned upstairs has been rather cracking down on miracles of late - and I’ve been practicing that trick, you know the one with the finicky compartments and such- and- well- it’s possible I might have been a tad heavy handed closing it and that he might have got a bit, well…smooshed I suppose.
Crowley: That doesn’t explain why the unfortunate bird is in your fridge.
Aziraphale: Oh don’t give me that look, I couldn’t bear to leave Lazarus like that, and this way he’ll keep until I’m back under quota.
Aziraphale: Well, uh, you see-
Crowley: Angel, just how many times exactly have you killed this poor bastard?
IM LOSING MY MIND THANK YOU
“And why for Someone’s sake did you feel the need to label it ‘Do Not Eat’?”
“Well… after the incident with the mice, I just thought–”
“Angel, that was ONE TIME! I was DRUNK!”

The French Revolution really was the peak for Aziraphale huh. The style. Fluffed up hair with three perfect curls laid delicately across his forehead. Outfit so fly it literally got him arrested. Campness hitting levels that have never been seen before. The idiocy. The terrible attempts at speaking French. A complete bitch to everyone he interacts with. How utterly done he is with the executioner but just stops short of telling him to fuck off and miracle away, all under the guise of “I’m not allowed to perform miracles at the moment”, knowing full well it’ll attract a certain demon’s well-timed assistance. Stupid enough to go to a country in mid-revolution and hungry enough be willing to die for some half decent crêpes. The gayness. One of the few times he’s fond enough to ask Crowley out on a date without any reservations. Completely ready to throw away 5800 years of repression until he turns around and sees how ugly Crowley looks. “I have standards!”. Absolute Bougie Legend. The Utter Drama of it all. French Revolution Aziraphale is the best Aziraphale
listen, listen, I’m with you on this like 99% of the way, it’s just, the thing is
this is a once-over that, to you, says “Crowley I hate your outfit”???
After reviewing the evidence (ie: watching that gif about 20-30 times) I’ve concluded that Aziraphale’s “Oh, good Lord” can best be translated as, “this is ridiculous, he’s wearing the worst outfit I’ve ever seen and he still looks like a snack, how on earth??”
