Title: Numerically speaking, I’ve always loved you Author: Ariane DeVere Word count: 18,802 Rating: PG / Teen and up
Summary: A journey through history with an angel and a demon who are supposed to be on opposite sides but repeatedly fail to remember that they’re meant to be enemies and soon – well, within a few thousand years – begin to realise that they’re way more than just casual acquaintances.
Eleven short(ish) stories, each based around one of the ten scenes from the Episode 3 cold open, plus an epilogue. Each chapter contains the same number of words as the year in which the scene takes place, e.g. chapter 1, based in 4004 BC, is 4004 words long; chapter 10 in Soho is 1967 words long, etc ... Chapters 3 and 4 in particular are therefore very short! Total word count including 2019 epilogue (although AO3 will indicate otherwise): 18,802. Plus a numerically-related Author’s Note.
