Good Omens/Supernatural 1/1  
Written for Day 15 of consci_fan_mo. I’m sure I’m not the first to think of this, but it’s being buzzing around in my brain now and won’t let go so now I'm inflicting on the rest of you ;-p.

Set in season five of Supernatural, directly after Crowley gives the Winchesters the Colt.
Warning for mild swearing.

Disclaimer: Supernatural belongs to Kripke, Good Omens to Gaiman and Pratchett. They can fight it out over who has first dibs on Crowley.

Second Chances

The other end of the line had rung six times. Crowley tapped impatient fingers on the desk. Three more rings and he’d just go over there, but he didn’t want to risk that. Chances were that one side or the other would be watching for him.

Finally there was a click and before the other end could answer, Crowley spoke.

“About time. It’s done.”

“Do you have any idea what time it is?” Aziraphale sounded grouchy. Crowley grinned.

“Did I forget the time difference? Oops.”

“You know damn well that it’s two in the morning here,” came the most un-angelic reply. “It’s most uncivilised.”

“Hello, demon?!” Crowley said sarcastically and then shook his head. Time to be heading back to Blighty soon, he thought.

“You’ve been in the colonies too long,” Aziraphale said, echoing his own thoughts. They’d clearly been spending far too much time together. Then the other part of Crowley’s statement must have registered as Aziraphale added “It’s done?”

“The Winchesters have the Colt. Now it’s down to them,” he replied.

“Are you sure about this? I mean, last time was a bit too much of a near miss. Can we really trust this to the vessels?” Aziraphale asked. The angel was too much of a grammarian to ever use air quotes, but Crowley could hear them in his tone.

“What choice do we have? I’m already in deep dog shit after the last debacle. The crossroads job was a punishment transfer and we all know it. Now Lucifer is out of the box I can’t be seen to oppose him again or it will be eternal torment with a side order of eye-gouging and on-tap blood and guts,” Crowley said and shuddered.

He’d been Downstairs for a while during Dean Winchester’s stint as torturer and the humans under Alastair’s tutelage had surpassed anything a demon could ever do. More imagination for one. Spend eternity under their tender mercies? No thanks.

“You know the Colt will probably only annoy him, right?” Aziraphale said.

“Oh, indubitably. But he won’t harm the vessels, he needs them. Both of them. Don’t worry, I’m already working on Plan B,” Crowley reassured him. It’s quite difficult for a cough to sound sarcastic, but Aziraphale managed it.

“I think you’ll find this will be Plan T.”

“Smart arse.”

Haven't ever watched SPN (despite having S1&2 on dvd) but I adore Good Omens (as if you hadn't guessed) and have wiki'd enough to kind of keep up with SPN. This is brill.

Plan T indeed. Hee.

Thank you hon. You should get around to it you know, there's a reason I shlepped all the way to Canada for a con.

Well, yeah, it was because it was a good excuse to visit Vancouver, but other than that!
