Title: Sins of the Angels (1/?)
Warning: Religion, Genderswitch
Summary: It’s been told in stories, in lies and in truths, but neither could imagine that they would be the reason for the end of time. The angel was to remain in Heaven and the demon in Hell, but soon enough, they are determining the fate of existence because their love is forbidden.
Note: This is unbeta'd because I'm 1) lazy, and 2) impatient. Thanks to oatmeal_peril for the encouragement and enthusiasm.
The abode of God, the angels, and the spirits of the righteous after death; the place or state of existence of the blessed after the mortal life.
Such grandeur and wonderment are pure gifts. Gifts bestowed upon those who are worthy enough to receive them. There are the souls of mankind who inhabit this glorious place; and there are those who’ve been there since the beginning of time. These beings are marvelous creatures of bewildering nature, known to the masses as Angels.
Angelic would be the proper word to describe the immaculate yet humane appearance of these individuals; how do you describe an angel as anything but? Fair shimmering skin, jewel-like eyes, silky waves of hair, thin glittering, white feathered wings, and faces of pure perfection. They are the embodiment of beauty.
Yet, these beings, in all their flawlessness, do not lack the emotions that so plague the human. Each has the ability to love, want, and even hate. For corruption is not limited to mortals; it festers and grows within the immortal as well.
Angels walk among the living, acting as protectors, guides, and even friends. However, should they bond themselves with deep set emotional connections, the consequences are dire.
It is said that when an Angel falls in love and gives of themselves physically, their wings are forever scored off. It is considered a fate worse than death. For this very reason, the select few granted access to the world below are they who have witnessed war, famine, and the power of evil firsthand.
The place or state of punishment of the wicked after death; the abode of evil and condemned spirits.
As the gates of Heaven are pearl, the gates of Hell are treacherous flame. Beauty not only lies in the clouds, it too dwells in the depths of evil. The ones who reside here are those who maintain immense beauty yet possess perfidious intentions.
For the souls that find their way here, all that is promised is an eternity of solitude and servitude. A forever of pain and woe.
Long ago, the King of this wicked place wandered into the world of the living. There, he befriended a human. He, being a demon and she, being quite virtuous and misled, created two children. One would walk the plains of the Earth forever, while the other would live in the fire and become the Prince.
This demon Prince afflicts both worlds, that of the living and the dead. He can travel to and fro. A past time he exploited whence he grew weary of his role as second leader.
And so begins our story, when Hell and Heaven collided in lustful wonderment and by that sin, fell the angels.( Chapter OneCollapse )
