->'''Raphael:''' ''[[AmazinglyEmbarrassingParents You gave me quite a fright, you did. Usually one person doesn't get hurt quite so badly, but you've always had to go above and beyond, haven't you? ...And you never visit anymore, and I can't believe you never mentioned your demon boyfriend.]]''

''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/4818516/1/Manchester-Lost Manchester Lost]]'' by JA{{Tropers/Moczo}} is a very funny ''Literature/GoodOmens'' CrackFic / ActionAdventure / (non-explicit) SlashFic in which Aziraphale is captured by Hell and Crowley, War and the Archangel Michael (on a MissionFromGod) break in to save him and set off a second apocalypse. It introduces entertaining [[OriginalCharacter characterizations]] of [[TrueCompanions other angels such as Michael, Raphael (Aziraphale's adopted father), Gabriel, and Uriel.]] It's a [[SelfParody self parodying]] AffectionateParody with many interesting twists and turns along the way.

It is technically a sequel to [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/4731170/1/How-Crowley-Fell-Out-of-Love-with-the-Bentley How Crowley Fell Out of Love with the Bentley]] (which is a sequel to ''Literature/GoodOmens''). Fanfic/ManchesterLost has a sequel itself, which is complete: [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5694906/1/Paradise-Thwarted Paradise Thwarted]]. Now Fanfic/ParadiseThwarted has its own page too!

Warning: Spoilers ahead!
