Jehoel and Azazel’s true forms for my Reverse Omens AU
may i ask, is 'azazel' a popular hc for aziraphale's demon name or did you come up with it? feel like i've seen it before somewhere...
Azazel is already an existing demonic name, but I thought the “Az” made it similar enough to Aziraphale to use. I wanted my AU Zira to spread forbidden knowledge too, which is something that fallen angel is associated with.
Wait so in your reverse AU does Az use anything to cover up his moth eyes? Or does he just walk around like that not caring what people would think.
I don’t think he covers his eyes at all, but at the same time I’m a fan of the idea that humans just wouldn’t notice anything was strange about Az’s appearance. I’ve seen lots of posts about it but basically when you see Hastur on earth, no one reacts to his weird frog eyes or overall… look while he greets an actual American Embassador. Crowley seems to have gotten through the parts of human history where tinted glass wasn’t invented yet without his eyes being noticed. Similarly, when all the business people are being arrested after Crowley turns their paintball guns into actual guns, him and Aziraphale just stroll through the scene unnoticed. I believe in the book as well there are lots of instances of humans just sort of overlooking the supernatural because they refuse to see it. I’m a fan of the idea that Crowley only wears sunglasses out of some fear of emotional vulnerability but ANYWAYS.
TLDR: I don’t think humans would notice anything was amiss… Unless he wanted them to.
