Da Capo Aria by Lady Oneiros

'I like the stars the best. They are always ready to die, and they never say a word.' An unusual story with a deft mixture of humour & pathos, plus a host of delightful cameos, as Aziraphale becomes Death for the day

[Added 26/04/2007; Drama; 6000-20,000; Good Omens; Characters: Aziraphale, God, Death, Crowley, Pestilence, Lucifer, Beelzebub]

Iron Horses by Jill Palmer

'If I thought the Plan was to flood out the planet again, I’d suggest motorboats…' Lots of GO fic explores the historical possibilities of the (ex-)angels, but they aren't the only immortal beings around. 'Iron Horses' accompanies the Horsepersons through a particularly successful century

[Added 21/03/2006; Drama; 1000-2500; Good Omens; Characters: Pestilence, War, Famine, Pollution, Death]

Managing Trouble by Sarahsan

'Manual labor, Crawly quickly discovered, was not really his speed.' A lovely character study of Crowley, as he oversees a key moment in early human history

[Added 03/09/2009; Drama; 2500-6000; Good Omens; Characters: Crowley, War, Death]

Revisited and Riding Out by Patrick Phelan

A rare Pepper-centric coda. A bit light on plot, but closer to the style of the original than much GO fanfiction, and with a scattering of fantastic lines

[Added 26/07/2005; Drama; 2500-6000; Good Omens; Characters: Pepper, War, Adam Young]
