Aziraphale collected books. If he were totally honest with himself he would have to have admitted that his bookshop was simply somewhere to store them. He was not unusual in this. In order to maintain his cover as a typical second-hand book seller, he used every means short of actual physical violence to prevent customers from making a purchase. Unpleasant damp smells, glowering looks, erratic opening hours - he was incredibly good at it.

#when people write Aziraphale as all proper and soothing #no dude#his store is never open when the sign says it’s gonna be and he’s gonna follow you around the store like you’re a registered shoplifter #he’s gonna look at you judgmentally no matter which section you’re browsing and make you feel all self-conscious about your taste in books #the front entrance has an unmarked step and after you trip he’ll say ‘mind the step’ #and then again when you fall going out #probably empty-handed because none of the prices are marked and you don’t really want to ask him how much anything costs #he probably short-changes you if you do try to buy something #and accuses you of trying to short-change him when you question it #Aziraphale is literally everything you hate in a shopkeeper

You have the best tags.

Weird, sulky Aziraphale is the best Aziraphale.

There’s a possibility that Albion Beatnik actually is Aziraphale’s bookshop, in Oxford…

Aziraphale is a more harmless looking and thus far deadlier version of Bernard Black and I cannot understand how anyone can see him differently

Aziraphale is Rupert Giles crossed with Bernard Black.

Little fun info to see, but it seems Decade actor, Masahiro Inoue, went to go see what the fuss was about when they were filming Drive. His twitter said:

"I ran into the next yearly Rider series being filmed and decided to sneak in. When some staff members recognized me they yelled "Here comes the Destroyer of Worlds!!"

Masahiro Inoue confirmed for massive dork
