Nat: Night's always in some bizarre state somewhere between "intoxicated enough to kill a hair metal lead singer" and "annoying Mormon missionary sober".

Swith: It's because you're so awesome. God himself refreshes the screen before he types just to see if Nightkill has written anything while he was off somewhere else.

Jade might remember Ivy Green as one of the students who had been killed when demons invaded Elfen High all the way back in 2018, when she had been a mere student. Ivy had also had a small crush on John Calhoun back then, when he was less of a dickhead.

In Heavensgate, Daniel Andreas (Norv's badass priest character) and Zoryana (a Ukrainian sorcerer chick) are exploring the city and will later be going to a pub.

In Leicester, Jade, Lana and Scotty Calhoun have found Richard Michaelson.

Well, no. That's a motif and a recurring element (mostly as a joke), but the real theme would likely be somewhere along the lines of "free will vs lack of it" or "innocence vs cynicism" or something.

Probably something.

You can inquire as to an angel-human hybrid or perhaps your character may have remembered hearing the parent names in a history book somewhere but not know what they are exactly, or even ask why the hell Richard swears in French.

Probably something.

An argument for free will.

The Crowleys and Damiens, they overshadow everyone else who would use free will correctly; they make you think that it needs to be limited, and maybe it does. Then you have Heaven, which is exactly that - it's an idyllic wonderland, because free will has been removed. Look at Hell; it's free will gone rampant, and it's a complete shithole.

Except not. As we now know quite well, by stripping away free will, Heaven has been destroyed. The angels suffer all their lives without knowing anything is wrong, humans are enslaved and beaten, the world is intellectually sterile. There is nothing but the unending propagation of Uriel's will, because his is the only will.

And Hell is not a shithole because of free will - it went, appropriately enough, to Hell because "visionaries" like Lucifer and Azazel (themselves similar to Uriel) tried to sculpt it in their image. They tried to destroy a world of beauty, a world of freedom, to make their world, their will. No free will but their own - and so the demons suffered. Sanchez, under the mask of liberation, he continues this trend. You can't bring happiness by replacing one will with another - only free will can do that.

Then there's Loki, the agent of pure chaos, free will incarnate. He's a dick, right? He tried to destroy the school. But as time goes on, we see that, though he isn't always perfect, he is, at heart, a good guy. He is evil sometimes, but most of the time, he is neutral - or even good. And neutral chaos is always better than benign order.

You have the Fae - the Fae aren't really characters, they're symbols. They're decay, entropy - they want to destroy everything. Anyone who is associated with the Fae is evil. When we first met Loki, he was a Fae agent - free will is evil. But as time goes on, we've come to see it's more complex than that. And, ultimately, though Uriel has fought against them, the two have become more and more conflated as their plot threads intertwined. No matter how much order struggles, if it goes too far, it will collapse into chaos; not free will, not the free exchange of ideas and emotions, but complete and utter madness. Free will isn't anarchy, it's utilitarianism through the natural desire to improve.

Now we look back at the destructive forces of Damien and Crowley. Damien is a reckless agent of destruction - he starts as an indicator of free will's negatives, but then he joins the Fae, and is revealed as entropy. He ends up destroying himself, as those who abuse free will and turn into a corrosive element are bound to do. Crowley, hedonist though he is, flawed he may be, but he wants to help, and he does. He may be imperfect, but he is ultimately a force of good.

Lewis Jameson began as an agent of entropy - he did nothing but cause wanton destruction. But when he saw what he caused, he turned his back on his past. He improved. Free will can cause damage, but it will always fix itself. When he saw his mistakes, Lewis became constructive - he built a family and saved the world.

Order, or at least not totalitarianism, is not the answer to the world's ills; even if it does work for a little bit, it will either destroy the world's value with its vice, or collapse into fire and insanity. The only answer is the slow, hard path - the path of the world fixing itself. The path of free will. It doesn't always look pretty, but it is ultimately the purest and only choice.

Nightkill the Emperor wrote:Crowley sighed. "I need you for that, as a matter of fact." he explained. "Human blood, D. Fresh human blood. I need that stuff. But it needs to be very carefully mixed with that of angel blood. Now, I could find and use Richard, but Calliel has strictly told me he wants his son out of trouble and pain. But...there's your sister. She has Lilith inside her." Now Crowley's voice was a whisper. "Your mother is outside, the door is sealed. But one of the few ways I can save these kids is if I can get someone who has that sort of angel-human mix. Rosalind is one. Richard is another. And I would wish there was a third, but there unfortunately isn't. There will be some consequences though. The angel side of the donater's persona would grow stronger...but the android bugs would grow much weaker."

There was a long pause.

"Aleister," D said, "you will not touch my sister. Do you understand me? Because you may be a god amongst men, but you know better than any other that no god is immortal."

D licked his lips. There were four solutions to this; Rosalind could not be risked, and even if she could, D had no idea where she was. The angel could be left to die, but Crowley would never allow that - the stubborn ass had long since taken a liking to the angel, and would never let it die. Even if he did, what that could do to Crowley made D shutter. The third solution was unthinkable, far too risky to even contemplate.

That only left one.

"You have to use Richard," D resolved, "Even if I wanted to risk Rosalind, I can't find her and you know she can't be found when she doesn't want to be. Not by any but you, and you can't leave right now. I'm sorry, but Richard is the only way."

I turned Salman Rushdie's Haroun and the Sea of Stories - a children's story about the Indian equivalent of Oz, bear in mind - into an allegory about the creative process.

For fun.

I did that stuff on occasion at your age (you're either 16 or 17 and I can't recall) when I had free time. Sadly, I didn't have too much and most of it remained in my head rather than being written down.

Nat: Night's always in some bizarre state somewhere between "intoxicated enough to kill a hair metal lead singer" and "annoying Mormon missionary sober".

From a word to a word I was led to a word,
From a work to a work I was led to a work."
- Odin, Hávamál 138-141, the Poetic Edda, as translated by Dan McCoy.
