Once More With Feeling by Xylodemon

'Once again, it wasn't a dark and stormy night. In fact, dark and stormy nights had been rather far and few between in the last six years. They seemed to be saved for special occasions, such as Halloween, horror film premieres, and winter solstice celebrations at Stonehenge.' A futurefic novella, crammed with delicious details. The Potterverse crossover elements are perhaps less successful (GO/HP)

[Added 26/04/2007; Drama; 20,000-50,000; Good Omens; Characters: Crowley, Aziraphale, Adam Young, Anathema Device, Newton Pulsifer, Death, Shadwell, Harry Potter, Ron Weasley, Ginny Weasley, Hermione Granger, Neville Longbottom; Crossover]

The Sacred and the Profane by afrai

I won't spoil the premise, but this well-written AU novella examines a very dark possibility for another way that events might have panned out. The alternative Crowley is a particular delight. Highly recommended

[Added 26/07/2005; Drama; 20,000-50,000; Good Omens; Characters: Crowley, Aziraphale, Adam Young, Anathema Device, Newton Pulsifer, Pepper, Wensleydale, Brian, Horsepersons, Hastur, Ligur]

Until the End that is to Come by Magicicada

'Newt wondered if it might be just a bit too early and not at all the right place for declarations of undying love, and he would have thanked his lucky stars if they weren’t currently landing around his feet.' Long, inventive, nicely (cough) detailed future fic, closer to the feel of the original than much GO fanfiction. Unusually, Newt & Anathema take centre stage, but there's room for cute cameos from almost all original players

[Added 21/03/2006; Drama; 6000-20,000; Good Omens; Characters: Anathema Device, Newton Pulsifer, Adam Young, Crowley, Aziraphale, Pepper, Wensleydale, Brian, Hastur, Agnes Nutter, Horsepersons, Shadwell, Madame Tracey, Minor]
