my curiosity about all this “good omens” stuff showing up on my dash has finally broken me, just put it on hold at the library and I can’t wait to find out what all the hype is about
#really but what is it#all i know is that the art is really cool#and there’s a gay ship??????
Good Omens is a wonderfully written comedy novel centered around the Christian religious apocalypse and the colossal muck-up of an attempt to stop it. It follows multiple character viewpoints, among them the demon Crowley (who, to quote, did not fall so much as saunter vaguely downward) and the angel Aziraphale (who for all his respectable angel act still regularly hangs with a demon). The human cast is phenomenal but I’m scared to tell you about them for fear of spoiling the story.
It’s fantastic though, beginning to end.
There is not, technically, a gay couple. The art tends to focus on that, but as of canon, the two who are usually coupled are not explicitly said to be in love. You will have to read and come to the conclusion as to their relationship yourself.
After you read the book, if you feel you want to get involved with the fandom further, I believe there’s a huge list of fanworks hiding in the shadows of kaytara-art’s blog, and there are a load of blogs willing to discuss meta with you and carrying interesting thoughts and opinions—among them a favorite of mine irisbleufic.
So there’s a thing to think on.
