Roommates 14 - Celestial...

Full Title: Celestial Persuasion

Introducing the two newest cast members to Roommates: Aziraphale and Crowley, from the novel Good Omens by Neil Gaiman and Terry Prachett. If you haven't read the book, it's very amusing, if somewhat satiric.

FYI, the dark haired gentleman is Crowley, and yes, he does have wings in the last two panels. For full explanation, read the book.

Erik belongs to Leroux and Webber.
Jareth belongs to Henson, Lucas, and Bowie.
Norrington belongs to Disney and Bruckheimer
Javert belongs to Hugo, Boublil, Schonberg, and Kretzmer.
Aziraphale and Crowley belong to Gaiman and Prachett.

This comic introduced me to a lot of things, but I think I'm most grateful for the introduction to Good Omens (which I have since passed on to other friends!). Thank you so much for this comic, Ashe. <3

I stayed up two nights ago marathoning Good Omens on Amazon with my husband and we both loved it! He brought up that he didn't think that he ever actually read the book, to which I promptly pulled my copy out of hiding. He then asked how I got into it.

To which, I replied that a fancomic I loved kept using Az and Crowley and I got curious about who they were and the book they were from since I hadn't heard of it before then.

Thanks for introducing me to Good Omens, AsheRhyder. :)

I love how Aziraphale just shows up nonchalantly like nothing just happened

You know, I hadn't remembered that these two got introduced so blamed early. Makes me happy though. I especially like the wings. :)

How many times have I reread Roommates? I don't even know. Regardless, I JUST figured out that Crowley's holding a water mister. I'd been thinking all this time it was a gun.
Re-reading this after reading good-omens makes it about 100 times greater X ) especially now that I've realized Aziraphale isn't a girl.

Jareth: "Oh, I've seen this before...look, it's no problem if you've been stuck halfway through an owl morph spell, it's happened to me once or twice..."

Yah, Aziraphale and Crowley! Absolutely love Crowley going completely bonkers there.

Oooh! Is Crowley holding his plant mister??

LOVE how, somehow, they talked Jareth into participating in this bit of social niceties. PLUS he knows at least something of everybody's back-story because they all watched the movies together. :D Yay for continuity!

O_O DUDE. After reading this comic a gazillion times, I only JUST got that. I figured he had a gun or something. Plant mister = winning.
AsheRhyder's avatar
He is, indeed.

I've got to read Good Omens sometime in the near future. I keep hearing all sorts of fun things about it.
I haven't read enough of Pika's comic yet to know if she included Crowley and Zira, but I do recall seeing Castiel from Supernatural making an appearance. I wonder if he bumped into the two while he was there. It would probably be interesting seeing how he has an acquaintance also named Crowley.

I've not seen Supernatural, so I can't say for sure.

I actually picked up Good Omens from the library, figured I'd see what was up. Best 300 something pages of my life. That said, I wonder if either you or Pika plan to bring any of the other characters from that book? I would personally love to see Anathema Device, I have a serious weakness for her character type (tall, long legs, long raven black hair with a hime-cut, dabbles in the occult, et cetera. Kind of reminds me of Yuuko from xxxHoLiC)

The rides would be fun to see as well, especially War, but then again her presence would probably cause the guys to fight over her and the girls to get pissy out of jealousy. Adam Not!Antichrist would be a good addition as well.
