Apparently, Bad, and Comfortable: theladyzephyr: Folks let me talk about Crowley and sunglasses, because I have a lot of emotions about when he wears them and when he doesn鈥檛, and Hiding versus Being Seen. We鈥檙e introduced to the concept of Crowley wearing glasses even before we鈥檙e introduced to Crowley, by Hastur: 鈥淚f you ask me he鈥檚 been up here too long. Gone native. Enjoying himself too much. Wearing sunglasses even when he doesn鈥檛 need them.鈥 Honestly Crowley鈥檚 whole introduction is a fantastic; we learn so much about his character in a tiny amount of time. The fact that he鈥檚 late, the Queen playing as the Bentley approaches, the 鈥淗i, guys鈥 in response to Hastur and Ligur鈥檚 鈥淗ail Satan鈥. I like this intro much better than the one originally scripted with the rats at the phone company, but I digress. Crowley wears sunglasses when he doesn鈥檛 need them. Specifically, he still wears them around the demons, and when he鈥檚 in hell. You know where Crowley doesn鈥檛 wear glasses? At home. We never once see him wearing glasses in his flat, except for when he knows Hastur and Ligur are coming. That鈥檚 an emotional kick to the gut for me. Here鈥檚 one of the only places Crowley鈥檚 comfortable enough to be sans glasses, and when he knows it鈥檚 going to be invaded he prepares not just physically with the holy water, but by putting up that emotional barrier in a place where he wasn鈥檛 supposed to need it. An argument could be made that Crowley actually never needs glasses. We鈥檙e shown that it鈥檚 well within the angels鈥 and demons鈥 powers to pass unnoticed by humans. Crowley and Aziraphale waltz out of the manor in the middle of a police raid, and going unnoticed by the police takes so little effort that they can keep up a conversation while they stroll through. Even an unimaginative demon like Hastur apparently doesn鈥檛 have trouble with the humans losing it over his demonic eyes. The humans in the scene at Megiddo are acting like 鈥渢his guy is a little weird鈥 and not 鈥渉oly shit his entire eyeballs are black jelly鈥 That means that Crowley鈥檚 glasses are a choice, just like Aziraphale鈥檚 softness. Sure, he could arrange matters so that nobody ever noticed his eyes, but he doesn鈥檛 want to. Crowley wants acceptance, and he wants to belong, and he鈥檚 never, ever had that. He didn鈥檛 fit in before the Fall in Heaven, he doesn鈥檛 fit in with the demons in Hell. With the glasses, and with the Bentley and his plants and with the barely-bad-enough-to-be-evil nuisance temptations, he鈥檚 choosing Earth. This is where he wants to fit in, perhaps not with the humans, but amongst them. Even after Crowley is at his absolute lowest, when he thinks Aziraphale鈥檚 dead and he鈥檚 on his way to drink until the world ends, he takes the time to put a new pair on when the old ones are damaged. He needs that emotional crutch right now, even with everything about to turn into a pile of puddling goo he鈥檚 not ready for the world to see his eyes. Which is why I swore out loud when Hastur forcibly takes them off. It鈥檚 about the worst thing that Hastur could have done. Rather than leading with a physical threat, his first act is to strip away Crowley鈥檚 emotional defences. It鈥檚 a great writing choice because god it made me hate Hastur, even more than all the physical violence we see him do. It鈥檚 also the moment that Crowley really truly gets his shit together, and focuses all of his considerable imagination on getting to Tadfield and Aziraphale to help save the world. He鈥檚 wielding the terrifyingly unimaginable power of someone who鈥檚 hit rock bottom and realised it literally could not get any worse than this. He doesn鈥檛 put another pair of glasses on after discorporating Hastur, and he spends the majority of the airbase sequence without them. He puts them back on again, I think, at the moment that he really lets himself hope. When he thinks 鈥榮hit, there may be a real chance that we get through this to a future that I don鈥檛 want to lose鈥. The vulnerability is back, and he needs Adam to trust him. In Crowley鈥檚 mind being accepted by a human means he needs to have his eyes hidden. Someone give the demon a hug, please. Interestingly, there鈥檚 only one time in the whole series that we see Crowley willingly choose to take his glasses off around another person. Only one person he鈥檒l take down that barrier for, and even then he鈥檚 drunk before he does it. Dear God/Satan/Someone that makes my heart ache. Crowley鈥檚 chosen Earth, but he鈥檚 also chosen Aziraphale. He鈥檚 been looking for somewhere to belong his entire existence, and it鈥檚 with the angel that he finally feels it. When the dust settles and the world is saved and they finally have space to be themselves unguarded, I like to imagine Crowley takes off the glasses when it鈥檚 just the two of them; the idea of being known doesn鈥檛 scare him quite so much anymore. 聽
