When did you first read Good Omens?
I'm a huge Neil Gaiman fan, and I wanted to read all of his works. I can't exactly remember when I read it, but it's been a few years now.

What about Good Omens grabbed your attention and turned you into a fan?
Plot, of course. Sense of humor. I love all of the character. Everything, really.

Any Good Omens fanfiction or fanart recommendations?
No, sorry. I'm lame.

Have you written any fanfiction or drawn any fanart about Good Omens?
Nope. D:

Favorite character(s) in the book?
Aziraphale and Crowley. I loved the scenes when they interacted.

Favorite quotes from the book?
Mr Young hadn't had to quiet a screaming baby for years. He'd never been much good at it to start with. He'd always respected Sir Winston Churchill, and patting small versions of him on the bottom had always seemed ungracious."

"It wasn't a dark and stormy night. It should have been, but there's the weather for you. For every mad scientist who's had a convenient thunderstorm just on the night his Great Work is complete and lying on the slab, there have been dozens who've sat around aimlessly under the peaceful stars while Igor clocks up the overtime."

When did you first read Good Omens?
About 4 years ago, I'd read tons of Terry Pratchett and I was just getting into Sandman, and well a paperback seemed less of an epic investment than a comic book series.

What about Good Omens grabbed your attention and turned you into a fan?
Probably the vulture following War around and dying of greasy denigration...either that or actually the delivery man.

Any Good Omens fanfiction or fanart recommendations?
I read an excellent Pepper/War story recently.

Have you written any fanfiction or drawn any fanart about Good Omens?
I'm in the process of writing one?

Favorite character in the book?
I'm afraid its all about Azriphale and Crowley.

Favorite quote from the book?
"You can't second-guess ineffability."

- I don't remember exactly when I first read it, but probably sometime in high school - that was when I discovered both Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett.

- CROWLEY AND AZIRAPHALE AND THEIR ADORABLENESS.

- Everything by afrai, without question.

- Er. I drew Caphriel for afrai once but it was not very good. DDD:

- Crowley and Aziraphale, about equally.

- The whole book.

I was a big Discworld reader as a kid, and somebody gave me Good Omens - or maybe I bought it, I don't remember. Anyway, I loved it, i can't even explain, just everything about it was wonderful. The tibetans, the witchfinders, Newt's Way With Electrics, it's just great.

I have written fanfic, drawn fanart and participated in RP! I played Newt over at

My fanfic etc can be found by heading over to my journal and clicking the "creative" tag, although you might have to scroll back some as most of it was done some time ago.

When did you first read Good Omens? I can't remember! I must have been around 13
What about Good Omens grabbed your attention and turned you into a fan? Crowley. Seriously, the demon rocks. And as I got older, I was sure that he and Aziraphale had something going on, beyond the whole "trying to stop the apocalypse" thing.
Any Good Omens fanfiction or fanart recommendations? not at the mo.
Have you written any fanfiction or drawn any fanart about Good Omens? Not yet, but I have some Ideas floating around.
Favorite character in the book? Crowley. ( and Sister Mary Loquacious)
Favorite quote from the book? Too many to count, or type.

From: [personal profile] sabeth
When did you first read Good Omens?
Years ago, but I don't remember exactly. I've re-read it twice, and I think I'm due for another re-read soon.

What about Good Omens grabbed your attention and turned you into a fan?
It's just so funny in such a clever way. And the characters are engaging. It's, like, Neil and Terry combining their powers in THE BEST POSSIBLE WAY. Also, you can't really go wrong with angels and demons and the apocalypse, at least where I'm concerned.

Any Good Omens fanfiction or fanart recommendations?
Yes, actually! I just recently listened to the podfic of Tea and Scones by [livejournal.com profile] moonlettuce, a fabulous Good Omens/Supernatural crossover. (Which I should really go and leave feedback for, oops.)

Have you written any fanfiction or drawn any fanart about Good Omens?
I did some fanart back in the day, but I don't think it's online any more, which is probably for the best.

Favorite character in the book?
Aziraphale. Okay, and Crowley. Don't make me decide!

Favorite quote from the book?
There are so many good ones, but I don't have the book with me right now. Off the top of my head, I've always been extremely fond of the "sauntered vaguely downward" bit.

When did you first read Good Omens?
Actually, I just finished reading it for the first time about an hour ago! :D

What about Good Omens grabbed your attention and turned you into a fan?
Well, an online friend recced it to me, and it sounded interesting. Also, I'd seen fanart by Linnpuzzle and just wanted to read it. And once I started, I was sold.

Any Good Omens fanfiction or fanart recommendations?
Sadly not. But if anyone can rec me some good angel/demon slash, I'd be very happy :D

Have you written any fanfiction or drawn any fanart about Good Omens?
No, haven't had the time yet. But I will definitely draw for GO at some point, and maybe even write fics.

Favorite character in the book?
Do you have to even ask? Aziraphale and Crowley, naturally ;)

Favorite quote from the book?
I can't choose, seriously. There are so many great ones :)

When did you first read Good Omens?
I was in college at the time, possibly my junior year?


What about Good Omens grabbed your attention and turned you into a fan?
It wasn't until much later that I got into GO fandom, it was someone else's fanfiction that reminded me how much fun I'd found the book. I re-read it and then started poking around on livejournal for other people who'd enjoyed it and had deep and not-so-deep thoughts.


Any Good Omens fanfiction or fanart recommendations?
Fanfiction: Anything by daegaer, Baby Snakes by Louise Lux


Have you written any fanfiction or drawn any fanart about Good Omens?
I've written onedrabble, that's it.


Favorite character in the book?
It's too hard to choose between my top favorites *g*


Favorite quote from the book?
Again, too tough a question!
