Formerly known at TheAfternoonBreak, apparently Tumblr wanted me to renew things a bit. Chances are I'm way older than you. Avid rper, fangirl, multishipper, multifandom. Feel free to drop a line!

This means a great lot in a moment in time where maybe the most important thing that we remember right now is the sanctity of the human spirit it is the profound privilege of my life to play Prior Walter in Angels in America because he represents the purest spirit of humanity and especially that of the LGBTQ community. It is a spirit that says no to oppression. It is a spirit that says no to bigotry, no to shame, no to exclusion. It is a spirit that says we are all made perfectly and we all belong. So I dedicate this award to the countless LGBTQ people who have fought and died to protect that spirit,  to protect that message, for the right to live and love as we are created to.

I want more life. I can’t help myself. I do. I’ve lived through such terrible times and there are people who live through much worse. But you see them living anyway. When they’re more spirit than body, more sores than skin, when they’re burned and in agony, when flies lay eggs in the corners of the eyes of their children - they live. Death usually has to take life away. I don’t know if that’s just the animal. I don’t know if it’s not braver to die, but I recognize the habit; the addiction to being alive. So we live past hope. If I can find hope anywhere, that’s it, that’s the best I can do. It’s so much not enough. It’s so inadequate. But still bless me anyway. I want more life.
Angels in America (2003, Mike Nichols)

To the world. To the world.

HE. KEEPS. STARING. MY HEART

Headcanon: Crowley’s also still watching from the corner of his eye. You just can’t see it behind the glasses.

Additional Headcanon: Crowley needs to look away to keep the blush crawling up the back of his neck at bay. Aziraphale is now free to love and the power of it is overwhelming. While this is fresh and new, Crowley will need to keep those adoring stares on measured intake to keep from imploding with them

I take back everything I said about there not being a kiss at the end of Good Omens

Personal headcanon: it’s important character development that Azirphale keeps staring and is angled toward Crowley, while Crowley is angled more neutrally. The first time we see them dining together at the Ritz, Crowley is leaning SO far in toward Azirphale he looks like he is going to topple the fuck over. In that scene, Aziraphale has a more neuteral/outward angled posture and is more focused on his food than Crowley. In my mind, the postures are symbolic of their mindsets at that point, Aziraphale is still on the fence, he’s not ready for an “our side”, he sees Crowley as a friend (and probably loves him, after the church scene), but not as an equal. Crowley is making all the effort (you know what I mean, not THaT kind) in the first scene, both in the literal context of the scene and in the body language and blocking of the scene, he is the only one of them fully prepared to join with the other. In fact, the WAY he leans in and the WAY he stares at Aziraphale in that scene is almost desperate in its NEED. He is trying SO hard and getting nothing. Fast forward to this scene, the blocking and body language is entirely different and I think it marks important shifts for both of them, psychologically. Aziraphale is looking at Crowley the whole time, even after Crowley appears to turn away (he may still be looking under the glasses, I don’t know for sure obviously). He is smiling, fondly, openly. He engages with Crowley, ‘cheers’-ing their glasses, and talking to him, rather than focusing on himself and his food/drink and treating Crowley like an afterthought (we don’t actually see them make conversation until after Aziraphale finishes his food in the first ritz scene, it’s almost as though Aziraphale has pleasurably eaten an entire meal in silence and then only allows Crowley to interact once he has finished). It’s a marked change in both behavior and positioning that I take to symbolize Aziraphale’s shift to an “our side” thinking, and an acceptance of Crowley as more than a friend but as someone worthy of being his equal and partner. Crowley’s body language is even more different in this scene, and I view it as super important and symbolic. Crowley tries SO damn hard the WHOLE time he is on earth. He tries to get Aziraphale to be his friend, then to recognize and admit their friendship (which Aziraphale seems to repeatedly resist), he even tries (even if he fails pretty pathetically and it’s why we love him) to get Hell’s approval for his deeds (‘Can I get a wahoo?’). In the first scene at the Ritz, he is trying SO hard to get Aziraphale to join him… to HELP him. To stay with him, on earth, which he doesn’t want destroyed in order for them to do so. He is physically manifesting that desperation the first time, turned entirely profile view to the camera, facing Aziraphale and leaning across the table. But in this scene… THIS scene is SO important and really beautiful for many reasons, but also really beautiful just for Crowley because it visually SHOWS that he doesn’t feel the need to try so hard anymore. He knows, he KNOWS the change that has happened with Aziraphale. He got what he wanted, they have ‘their side’. He’s comfortable and confident in the knowledge that Aziraphale is with him, and that he doesn’t have to try so hard anymore. He’s sitting at the table naturally, he’s angled toward the camera just like Aziraphale, he is not SO scared of losing Aziraphale that he feels the need to stare him down, to be ready to leap across the table at any second. He just looks so content for the first time in the series and a LOT of things about this scene warm my heart, but the change in blocking of the two scenes and particularly Crowley’s positioning just DOES ME IN because I have no idea whether it was intentional but that’s absolutely how I headcanon the difference in those postures and it melts my heart for that sweet little demon because he has been through a lot and fucking DESERVES to finally be content and be viewed as an equal.

Crowley’s panic at having to confess his love right there and then.

I mean, did you SEE how he’s deflecting the conversation?? Did you SEE how many people/cars/obstacles he dodged throughout the whole series??? The demon drives 90 mph in central London, hardly ever looks at the road, and doesn’t hit a thing. And then THIS is when he hits someone????? When he’s looking straight ahead on a straight, empty road?????? Naaaaahhhh…

Wow good catch!

david: crowley and aziraphale are soulmates and theyre in love

michael: yes and more importantly they Fuck [x]

I love that if he hadnt said “not to be graphic” most people would get that he didn’t mean it sexually, but he just really wanted to make sure that everybody was thinking about it sexually too.

Edit: This comic was originally made with Hozier’s ‘Nina Cried Power’ lyrics, which I didn’t realize was a song very specific to the Civil Rights movement. In retrospect, overlaying a comic of white lgbtq characters with these lyrics wasn’t a tactful decision. 

I’ve changed the lyrics to Hozier’s ‘ From Eden’ now, and I want to ask you guys to reblog this version instead. Thank you!
