GO:Judging a Book By Its Plain Brown Wrapper by quantum-witch GO:Judging a Book By Its Plain Brown Wrapper by quantum-witch
Good Omens Exchange is running a little long this year, but my gift was given before Xmas and everyone ALWAYS knows it's me... so...

FANDOM: Good Omens
WHO: Aziraphale, Crowley © Gaiman, Pratchett
NOTES: For robinasynder on LJ. The prompt was: Aziraphale VS Crowley, both going after the same soul, can be pre or post arrangement. I rather like the idea of it being pretty even or Aziraphale having the upper hand. What happens to the soul (Good/Evil/Third Option) is up to you.

Why create a whole new character when canon is so rich with questionable souls ;)

Additional notes:

- Mary Magdalene was indeed sainted. She was also not a prostitute, but it's the common idea so I played with it.
- "Cervelle de veau" = calves' brains, a French delicacy... eww.
- Ludwig Beethoven, deaf by the time he wrote those bits of his music.
- If anyone EVER finds out what Tracy's Thursdays are about... I don't want to know.

This is a conversation that should have happened. Hehe.

Believe it or not, bingo.
Or, at least thats what she tells Mr Shadwell...
I hired a professional private detective named Gently, he said he would tell me in a week.
That was a week ago.
He said she actually plays checkers with a man who looks suspiciously like Freddy Mercury. Dirk said he sings like you would expect an angel to sing. He also said a pale man in a black coat said "YES". The dick had no idea what that man meant, you don't suppose that the guy she's meeting is really Fred Mercury do you?

How come I hadn't seen this before???? ťAŤ I love it, I think I died at "Even though she can hear the dead like old Ludwig heard his own late quartets?" :rofl: The whole comic is brilliant, Aziraphale's final argument is indeed indisputable xD (I realized they were talking about Madame Tracy only when charlatanism was mentioned :dummy: My excuse is that I haven't had any coffee today)
I love how you depict them, they look and sound precisely like themselves :love: And Aziraphale's computer in the first panel made me grin like an idiot <3

*favs with ninja-like speed*

Guh, some people eat calf brain here too, my grandfather loved it. This is one of the reasons I don't eat calf and tend to avoid meat as much as I can XDDDD *scarred for life*

Hee :D I had loads of fun thinking of crap for them to argue about. Because they could argue about *everything* down to the wallpaper and crop rotation in Belgium, for all I know. So I have to be prepared with adequate, if ridiculous, comparisons for whatever comes my way.

I love Madame Tracy, she doesn't get nearly enough attention. She was -- if you use the SPN verse ideals -- Aziraphale's vessel for a time so she's got to be important. :)

:XD: That computer is modeled on my first one. It used a disc to boot up, everything was in four color DOS, and to save a file you could only use eight letters. Had to use it until 1997, so I sympathize completely with Aziraphale. Writing things down would've been easier =P

Ewww, I will never try it. Here, esp. down South, they love pig brain. Scramble it right into eggs for breakfast. I tried it once without knowing and nearly threw up. Never again. :XD:

lol. That was so awesome. I totally didn't expect it would be her.

Madame Tracy is a very colorful character ;) Under-used in fandom, too.

Your characterization is absolutely perfect. :heart:

Very nice, and a wonderful little conversation between the two. Yet another reminder that I need to re-read this wonderful book. Have a good year!
quantum-witch Featured By Owner Jan 6, 2012
Yay! If something I wrote inspires you to re-read, then my mission is complete :)
softcoresicko Featured By Owner Jan 8, 2012
Heh, well, I definitely want to re-read, and have for quite a while. Your art has just helped to move it up the list of what I'd like to re-read. (To say nothing of reminding what I loved about it in the first place.)
