Here it is, folks - the big list of Thems Who Did What.

Now that's all on the up-and-up, you can publicly thank your betas and your gift-givers (by name), kiss your screaming fans, and repost wherever you like (Good Omens Library/Gallery, Skyehawke, relevant coms, etc.) This community will still be around as an archive, and tonight we'll go through all the posts and add the names.

Take Off Your Masks, My Lovelies! )

Once again, a million thanks to everyone involved, a thousand times! I personally, in particular, would like to thank [livejournal.com profile] waxbean for doing all the startup work as well as being stalwart all through the process, being a fantastic person to work with, and beta'ing my fics!
[identity profile] vulgarweed.livejournal.com
You know you want to.

And you know you’re all doing it in your heads anyway. Just how well do you know your fandom?

This poll format is modeled on the one [livejournal.com profile] jeddy83 did for [livejournal.com profile] merry_smutmas in the HP fandom last year. All you do is take your best guess at who created the piece in question. Note that poll results are public. :D We’re on the honor system here, so we ask that you don’t guess about your own, or the one you beta’d, or the one that your friend spilled the beans to you about. And remember—a few people did more than one piece, so process of elimination won’t solve all your problems. The master list of contributors is here.

Great )

Have fun and good luck!

Your mods,

summary: Concerning Crowley and Aziraphale. And other things (in a series of three paintings).
rating: Rated G for General (also for gen).
artist's notes: Because it's true. (Also, crime = hunger) An amazing lot of thanks go out to the beta I
never used (*kowtow*) and the fabulous [livejournal.com profile] waxbean and [livejournal.com profile] vulgarweed for not strangling me for certain reasons that concern me
being sucky. And, well. Hope you like!

The end comes indeed. The final story--and it's a wonderful one--at the 2005 Good Omens Holiday Exchange is for all of you...everyone who wrote, drew, read, beta'd, looked, commented, rec'd, and enjoyed. Thank you all immeasurably! It's been a joy.

Pairing: Newt/Anathema
Rating: PG-13

Happy New Year, [livejournal.com profile] go_exchange, from your Secret Writer! (and your mods!)
[identity profile] vulgarweed.livejournal.com
Title: Through the Wire
Gift for: [livejournal.com profile] hjbender
Author: [livejournal.com profile] vulgarweed
Pairing: Crowley/Aziraphale
Rating: NC-17
Summary: The physical distance between true lovers is merely part of Maya, Illusion—transcendable at the speed of desire. (That’s a nice high-falutin’ way of describing a smutty crackfic about supernatural phone sex gone awry.)
Author's Notes: There’s a Peter Gabriel song somewhere in the inspiration for this, too.

We get so strange across the borders... )

Happy Holidays, [livejournal.com profile] hjbender, from your Secret Writer!

Happy Holidays, [livejournal.com profile] evilweevil04!

Title: “Last Minute Shoppers”
Gift for: [livejournal.com profile] evilweevil04
Author: [livejournal.com profile] waxbean
Rating: PG
Summary: Aziraphale helps Crowley with his last-minute holiday shopping. Along the way, they run into the Four Horsepersons of the Apocalypse. (Aziraphale, Crowley gen -- also featuring Horsepersons and numerous nefarious toys).
Author’s notes: This is probably not how you envisioned your request, Evilweevil04. But inspiration struck when I was standing in line at a toy store, surrounded by insane children, volatile parents, and truly disturbing toys. I hope you enjoy it, anyway!

Happy Holidays, [livejournal.com profile] magicicada!

Title: The Last Most Beautiful Day in the World.
Gift for: [livejournal.com profile] magicicada
Author: [livejournal.com profile] bookshop
Pairing: Aziraphale/Crowley
Length: 4,300 words.
Rating: PG for some violence, death, mild angst, and slash.
Aithor's Notes: I really hope you enjoy!

Note on reading: The footnotes are html-linked and inserted into the body of the fic, so you can click on them and then hit “Back” to resume your place in the story.

Thanks to: [livejournal.com profile] waxbean and [livejournal.com profile] vulgarweed for all their support of this challenge and me during the writing of it—and to the lovely, talented Mystery Beta #1 for helping me work through the historics, Mystery Beta #2 for helping me work through the histrionics, and Mystery Beta #3 for helping me work through the hand-holding, figurative and literal.

Fic: The Last Most Beautiful Day in the World. Good Omens, A/C, words. )

Happy Holidays, [livejournal.com profile] bookshop!

title: Bethlehem
gift for:: [livejournal.com profile] bookshop
author: [livejournal.com profile] tea_and_snark
rating: G
prompt: Bethlehem
author's notes: I hope you have a happy holiday season! I was intrigued when I read your prompt, and originally I wanted to head straight into research and make it some sort of historical epic. Unfortunately, by the time I had the chance to start writing, I was whisked far away from my university’s library and into the realm of my family; I think the final product reflects the warmer, closer feeling of being with the ones you love. I hope that I can give that feeling to you, too, in this story – or at least the melody of the most beautiful Christmas song.

(As a secondary note, I would like to say that the views on religion in this story represent my attempts to portray each individual character’s approach; none of them actually capture my own, nor am I trying to foist these views upon my readers.)

And the eager unwrapping continues. Huh. How about that? It’s starting to look to me like this fandom has one pairing that’s really obviously the most popular. You learn something new every day, I tell you!


Untitled. A very warm kiss in a very cute style. (Aziraphale/Crowley, PG) For [livejournal.com profile] myotismon13.

Untitled (“It has Christmas lights!”). Another kiss, a very different warm style and mood. (Aziraphale/Crowley, PG-13). For [livejournal.com profile] altazar.

Autumn Snakery, a colorful day in the park, with a little sssomething ssspecial. (Aziraphale and Crowley, G). For [livejournal.com profile] alicorn9


To Fix Broken Wings, a tender tale of pain, nurturance, flight, and delayed gratification. (A/C, PG-13). Gift for [livejournal.com profile] ineffable_angel.

Compromising Positions, a campy and kinky comedy in which Saturnalia observances in Rome get out of hand for two beings in particular; no, this one can’t be blamed on the crazy Emperor. (A/C, NC-17). Gift for [livejournal.com profile] madsciencechick.

And He Could Do Really Weird Things With His Tongue, in which a plan to take Crowley back to Hell for punishment goes hilariously awry. (C/A, Michael/Raphael, Lucifer/Beelzebub, Hastur; R). Gift for [livejournal.com profile] lady_oneiros

A Little Holiday. Aziraphale takes one. Crowley tags along and thinks himself quite devious—but perhaps there is a scheme at work that goes deeper than his own. (A/C, NC-17). Gift for [livejournal.com profile] stella_polaris.

Untitled. Those ranting homophobes can get to anybody, even an angel. Fortunately he has a clever serpent to talk him down from it. (A/C, PG). Gift for [livejournal.com profile] a_stone_ginger.

Upon a Midnight Clear. Even the Kama Sutra isn’t much help when it comes to wings in the way. Very funny and sexy fic. (A/C, R) Gift for [livejournal.com profile] moonytoes.

It’s the Happiest Season of All. Another funny and sexy tale of good lovin’ gone weird—in which Aziraphale pulls a most surprising stunt (to himself as well). (A/C, alludes to War/Pepper and Adam/Brian/Wensleydale, NC-17). Gift for [livejournal.com profile] hllangel.

A Gift to One Another. In which it turns out that what Aziraphale wants for his I’m Sorry present from Crowley is something Crowley doesn’t mind giving one little bit. (A/C, NC-17). Gift for [livejournal.com profile] musegaarid.

When In Greece, in which an embarrassing moment from long ago lives on…and on…and on. But is that such a bad thing? (A/C, PG-13). Gift for [livejournal.com profile] janicechess.

Illustrated Fic:

And Snowpeople. This beautifully characterized and wonderfully written story about a magical Christmas (and Hanukkah) with the Them in Lower Tadfield comes with a very pretty holiday-card-worthy painting. (The Them and Dog, G). Gift for [livejournal.com profile] kaliscoo.

Huge thanks to all our participants--great job! More to come.
[identity profile] vulgarweed.livejournal.com
Title: When in Greece
Pairing: Crowley/Aziraphale
Rating: PG-13, at the most.
Recipient: [livejournal.com profile] janicechess.
Author: [livejournal.com profile] fickle_goddess
Prompt: "you who were born with the sun above your shoulders / you turn me on, you turn me on / you have to know (from Greek Song by Rufus Wainwright)."

Happy holidays, [livejournal.com profile] janicechess, from your Secret Writer!
[identity profile] waxbean.livejournal.com
Happy Holidays, [livejournal.com profile] musegaarid!

title: A Gift to One Another
gift recipient: [livejournal.com profile] musegaarid
author/artist: [livejournal.com profile] myotismon13
Summary: Crowley/Aziraphale. Crowley botches Aziraphale's Christmas and he wants to make it up to him. Aziraphale has an idea in mind, but no idea about how far Crowley wants to take it.
Rating: NC-17

A Gift to One Another )
[identity profile] vulgarweed.livejournal.com
Title: It’s the Happiest Season of All.
Gift Recipient: [personal profile] hllangel
Author: [livejournal.com profile] mangy_mongrel
Summary: Aziraphale/Crowley, brief mentions of Pepper/War and Adam/Brian/Wens. Spending Christmas with the Enemy is such great fun. First time – sort of. PWP. Does not include lines like "You’re that spark of goodness in me." (although they were considered) but includes an overdose of footnotes.
Rating: NC-17
Author's notes: Title was taken from the song "The Most Wonderful Time of the Year" due to the second verse, which reads, "With those holiday greetings and gay happy meetings when friends come to call."
A lot of firsts here for me – first full-length Good Omens fic, first full-length A/C fic, first NC-17. You have taken my virginity, [personal profile] hllangel! Thanks.
Also, much gratefulness to betas, especially the One for helping me out with the sex scene.

It's the Happiest Season of All )

Happy Holidays, [livejournal.com profile] hllangel from your Secret Writer!

Happy Holidays, [livejournal.com profile] alicorn9!

title: Autumn snakery.
gift recipient: [livejournal.com profile] alicorn9
artist: [livejournal.com profile] stella_polaris
Summary: Drawn with A/C in mind, but there's nothing detectable in it.
Rating: G
artist's notes: I started drawing this when the weather was what it was, hence it's not terribly Christmassy ._O And Crowley's dressed rather lightly, isn't he? Well. Never mind that! Merry Christmas, [livejournal.com profile] alicorn9!

icon policy: It is okay to make icons from this art as long as you credit the artist, [livejournal.com profile] stella_polaris. Please contact the artist directly for any other usage of this piece.

[identity profile] vulgarweed.livejournal.com
Title: Upon a Midnight Clear
Author: [livejournal.com profile] empy
Pairing: Crowley/Aziraphale
Rating: R
Recipient: [livejournal.com profile] moonytoes
Summary: "It came upon the midnight clear/ That glorious song of old/ From angels bending near the earth/ To touch their harps of gold!"
Notes: I wasn't given a specific prompt, only a pairing, so I let the characters do what they wanted. They got into rather a festive mood, and this is the result.

Upon a Midnight Clear )
[identity profile] waxbean.livejournal.com
Happy Holidays, [livejournal.com profile] a_stone_ginger!

fic: Untitled
gift for: [livejournal.com profile] a_stone_ginger
author: [livejournal.com profile] alicorn9

rating: PG

Untitled )
[identity profile] vulgarweed.livejournal.com
Title: A Little Holiday
Gift recipient: [livejournal.com profile] stella_polaris
Author: [livejournal.com profile] trinityblack
Summary: Aziraphale decides it’s time to take a holiday. Crowley decides to join him. It is basically just PWP with a very basic attempt at a plot.
Rating: NC-17
Author's notes: Thank you so much to ‘noodles’ (she knows who she is) for the beta on this. I still think it is a little disjointed jumping from one scene to the next but she doesn’t agree… whatever. Also I’m really looking forward to how all these fics turn out. Well, with that I’ll leave you to it… enjoy.
