My take on those cult covers!

hey so uh

Since the referendum in Russia has approved of Putin’s changes to Constituition, letting him stay in power until 2035, redefining marriage as “union of man and woman” and the government literally having talks about banning rainbow and comparing rainbow flags to nazi symbolism, it’s not been great for the LGBT+ community here.

In addition to that, we had the awful “Gay Propaganda” law since 2013 and the number of hate crimes towards LGBT+ Russians has increased greatly since then, and it’s likely to increase even more now.

So maybe consider donating to Russian LGBT Network to help us Russian gays out?

I'm Russian. It's really tough here for many, many people. People who were brought up in Soviet Union still spread bigotry to further generation. Even though most of Gen Z in Russia is slightly more tolerant, there are still MANY people who beat up, rape, blackmail, murder LGBTQ+ people. Homophobia is allowed governmentally and is legal, police refuses to help with hate crimes, moreover, there is also a huge percent of radically patriarchal people.

Government and police does literally nothing to help and supports the cruelty, activists of any kind are sent to jail and/or slaughtered. I've seen people who claim that Russian people are racist and homophobic, which means they don't deserve support. But we are literally trapped in our own country, the suicide rates, especially amongst young people are insane.

We need your support. We're trying to change things but it's scarier than you think.

this is a very good addition! so please don’t generalize russian people as “racist and homophobic”, it’s our government that acts like that

there are many people who oppose putin and the shit he enforces but most of them end up either dead or in jail, and you won’t hear about them outside of russia

I HAD NO INTERNET DURING 11 DAYS

I started talking about it here but I wanted to consecrate a separate post to it. The thing is, I don’t think Aziraphale fought in Lucifer’s rebellion. I also don’t think he is necessarily a soldier. 

In the show, he’s never called a soldier, if I remember correctly. He’s called a guardian and guardians can be very different. Like I’ve already said, he could be an equivalent of a security guard at your local grocery store – and certainly as effective. Or ineffective, rather, otherwise Crowley wouldn’t have succeeded at tempting the humans.

He’s called a “lean fighting machine” by Gabriel once but, the problem is, he’s visibly neither of these things. So to me it sounds like Gabriel encouraging Aziraphale to become these things rather than reminding him of his original designation. And then, of course, there is Aziraphale’s answer: I’m soft. 

He’s also summonned to Heaven to join the platoon, like all other 10 million angels planning to fight in the last war. So I’ve never seen him as a commander either – he could be just joining their ranks, as simple as that.

In short, according to my headcanon Aziraphale was created for a very specific purpose: to guard the Eastern Gate (or the apple tree, as he says). Why do I think he was created much later? Firstly, there is this conversation with Gabriel:

image

Gabriel is putting it in a way that looks like an explanation. Like he is giving an account of certain historical events to someone who’s never witnessed them. And he’s referring to the Earth here too, implying that the creation of the Earth seems like something that Aziraphale can easily relate to. The war in Heaven which happened a long time ago isn’t such an event and seems very distant in this context.

Then Gabriel says Crowley and the rest were cast out but nothing was ever really settled, to which Aziraphale replies:

image

Looks like he’s really not that familiar with anything that happened before the creation of the Earth, so the context isn’t that clear to him. You can only suppose what’s there to settle if you’ve never witnessed the events yourself.

And secondly, there is this line:

image

So Crowley had already been old when he met Aziraphale. And in Eden Aziraphale really behaves like a novice – allows Crowley to tempt the humans and then gives them his service weapon, doesn’t really react to a demon approaching him and even starts a conversation with him. A conversation including half-hearted textbook stereotypes about demons – I doubt that Gabriel or Michael really believe any of that “all demons are bad” stuff. Looks like he was created, briefly instructed and showed in the Garden. 

In a sense, Crowley might have more experience with actual war. Remember their conversation from the first episode? Heaven will finally triumph over Hell – another textbook reference, to which Crowley knowingly replies: You really believe that? I think it’s evident here who was a witness to real combat and who was fed some cheap propaganda.

It all worked out for the best though.

Yeah, this is my headcanon, too. I also think that had Aziraphale been present at the war, he would never have stood for it. Aziraphale wouldn’t stand for fellow angels being cast out. He also would have been traumatized by the war, regardless of whose side he was on. Aziraphale in Eden strikes me as a fresh-faced soldier, having just been fed angel propaganda, but having never actually encountered a demon before. Had he been present at the war, he would not have met Crowley with the confusion he did. He would either be wholly sympathetic, hateful, or terrified, not looking at him with the expression of, “oh, so this is the creature I’ve heard all about.”

I think the thing that makes me the most emotional about the Cabin Times that I never see in fic (and honeslty wouldn’t know how to portray myself if I was writing it) is just... how emotional it must have been for them.

Not even in relativity to the trauma of the institute attack or the lonely or having to flee or anything like that (though that would all have a massive effect). It’s just like... they haven’t been able to see each other for a year. First because of the coma, and then, even more painfully, by deliberately staying away from each other. And they’re in love!! They’re in love at this stage!! They’re in their relatinship’s honeymoon phase and this time it’s taken literally, all alone in a cabin miles from home.

I just can’t get over how often one of them must just start crying. Martin starts crying because Jon walked up behind him while he was making dinner and put a hand on his shoulder. And no one has casually touched him like that in so long! Let alone the man he’s been in love with for years. He just can’t believe this is happening.

Jon wakes up three days in and can’t see. It takes him a minute to figure out it’s because his face is buried against Martin’s chest, shirt fabric clinging to his face and obscuring his vision. And he just starts crying because how the hell did he end up here. A week prior he had been drunk with Daisy, sitting on the floor of his office lamenting how he’s never get to properly talk to Martin ever again and how he’d realised he loved him too late and now he just gets to wake up in his arms? He can’t really believe it’s real.

They were separated for so long... I just don’t think they’d be able to handle suddenly being with only each other, and no risk of the other being taken away, and their feelings out in the open. The contrast would seem too much, they’d just be emotional wrecks the whole time

Aziraphale expecting the chase to continue after the apocalypse is just Not Thinking. 

Like yes Crowley always comes back. He often inserts himself into Aziraphale’s life for a quick drink despite the angel’s uneasy glances. He understands the stakes, he just doesn’t like them. 

But thousands of years do take their toll, and Aziraphale has been telling him for about 6000 years that they’re different, Crowley is bad, Crowley is broken, we’re fraternizing, we’re not friends, etc.

And Crowley knows a lot of that is all talk, a lot of it is bullshit. But logical thinking and being constantly told the same thing over and over are very different.

So if Aziraphale says no when Crowley asks to come over during a pandemic with the expectation that Crowley will retort with a snappy comeback and might even pop on over anyway, that’s kind of unfair. 

If he was surprised when Crowley was like “Okay, see you whenever this is over I guess,” Then he’s really being inconsiderate.

Crowley’s thought process is obviously like “Alright, he’s making excuses not to see me again, guess I’ll leave him alone until I bump into him in the future, whenever that is.” with the understanding that next time they see each other still might not end with more than a few shared words. Because that’s how it’s always been, for six thousand years.

Maybe he was hoping that they could spend more time together and be real friends or maybe even more after the failed apocalypse, but when Aziraphale returns to the same old routine he’s disappointed, but when is he ever not?

Crowley is getting tired of the chase, especially now that it seems like Heaven and Hell aren’t the cosmic forces that are keeping them apart and Aziraphale just doesn’t like him all that much. So he’ll come back, once he’s had sufficient time to sulk and works up the nerve to approach Aziraphale again.

But it’s not like he’s going to suddenly start pushing when Aziraphale says no just because the threat of death isn’t imminent, when for all this time Aziraphale has made it clear that he’ll react poorly if Crowley tries to push him for more time together.

And for Aziraphale, this is just fine. Because he’s the subject of the chase, not the chaser. From his point of view it is abundantly clear that he is the subject of Crowley’s affection. And now that the apocalypse failed and they’re unemployed, he has the newfound freedom to enjoy it. But if he still doesn’t try to make Crowley feel wanted, and in fact actively tells Crowley that he’s unwanted, then he shouldn’t be surprised when Crowley fucks off and gives Aziraphale the space he asked for in the first place.

Yes, that’s what I’ve been saying too! It’s time for Aziraphale to stop being the chased one and show that he can love as well, not just be loved. That’s why I am such a sucker for loving, caring Aziraphale in fics.

Addition: Unfortunately, I saw a lot of fix-it fics after the Lockdown was released where Crowley violates Aziraphale’s boundaries and comes to the shop anyway.  As if he read his mind and somehow figured that Aziraphale’s “no” meant “yes”. The thing is, Crowley doesn’t have to read Aziraphale’s mind in order to know he’s wanted. He needs to be told that.
