"Glory of God, the Angel has fallen!"
Humans created a glorified version of God's messenger; a pure being without fault--a perfected version of the most holiest mortals. But angels are not so, and demons are not simply malicious unfeeling shadows of the night. Both are more powerful than humans, they influence humans for better or worse, but they are not perfect. They err. They stray. They betray their creators. As one such angel did. As one such demon did when he found the fallen one. The angel falls from the grace of her maker--falls far enough (or was it all a setup?) to be imprisoned in the Underworld. She suffers torture, mockery, humiliation and learns what sorrow really means. But she is taken---freed by the demon who needs her help. Only one of the Overworld can aid him in his quest, even if that quest means breaking every vow ever made to his own almighty king. But when a demon falls from whatever grace he possessed, where does that put him? What becomes of the angel who not only betrays her god but the god of Hell as well?
--Gender is not significant to this roleplay. (Traditional angels or Seraphim are generally depicted as genderless or hermaphrodites and I imagine demons to be as well.) However, we'll stick to one or the other. I give you the option of the demon or the angel. I give you the option of gender. I'm comfortable with all pairings but if you want to keep it heterosexual, I'll match whichever you decide.
--Break away from everything you know or have heard about what an angel is and what a demon is. Each realm is ruled by one as sentient to them as our president is to us. This plot will not be confined to what religion has created for these creatures. We create our own here.
--I left it open-ended so that should you choose the role of the angel, you formulate why she/he was ostracized from the heavens. Should you choose the demon, you decide what it is he/she is trying to fight or find.
--I imagine their worlds sandwiching our own. Certain times of day, certain days of the year, certain alignment of the planets determines how thin the barriers between heaven and earth and earth and hell are. This means we can double with human characters; get them involved in this mess we're creating and give our story some variety.
--This will include adventure, perhaps some romance, but I do tend to focus on character development. We have a lot to play with and a lot of boundaries to push with such iconic creatures. I have no issue with mature themes. I expect us to include much violence, gore, sex, etc.
--I REQUIRE my partner to add plot twists, ideas, challenges at me. If I wanted to figure all that out on my own, I'd write the damn story myself.
--That being said, I also require my partner to write on par with me. This means at an ADVANCED level. I WILL be screening any applicants. This also means that I value quality over much else and will not be able to post daily. Expect a few days or longer between postings.
