Ezekiel Posted March 24, 2006 Share Posted March 24, 2006 [SIZE=1][COLOR=#ff4403][CENTER]Today, Gabriel was not looking forward to the venture 'down below'. Of course, it was never a pleasure, but today he realised would be particularly uncomfortable. He checked he had the necessary scroll once again and sighed, deliberating for the umpteenth time to just beg God to make Michael do this. It was unethical! It was immoral! It was a waste of his time! Of course, though, the angel wouldn't go back on his word and an order from his Boss was an order he must carry out. So, as he descended the long stairway down to the mortal realm, Gabriel practiced just exactly how he was going to explain this. Lucifer, meanwhile, was already aware of the visitor that would soon be arriving and lounged lazily with Belial, chuckling to himself at the thought of what God was up to. The look on Gabriel's face would be priceless, no doubt, and that alone would make Lucifer's day. It wasn't long before Gabriel was escorted in, two lower demons flanking the nervous angel as he gripped the golden scroll tightly to his chest. [B]"Master."[/B] the one demon said, his voice like venom in Gabriel's ears. The angel shivered. [B]"I know, I know. You may leave him," [/B] Lucifer waved his hand and the two demons left, Belial standing up to keep guard at the large door they had just come through. Lucifer then turned his attention to Gabriel and smirked, [B]"Gabe! Please, take a seat!"[/B] The fallen angel swept his arms wide, gesturing to the chair opposite him. Gabriel's top lip curled and he shook his head, golden locks falling elegantly about his face, [B]"I'd rather not. I just need to deliver this. He...He wants to have a bet."[/B] "Another one!" Lucifer laughed, loud and arrogant. [B]"I thought we were going to stop at Job..."[/B] Gabriel sighed deeply at the memory and let his scroll unravel, clearing his throat, [B]"The Father wishes to play a game. A game where the heavenly powers shall be tested. He will bestow His powers upon three human youths with no rules binding them. You, as the Liar and Deceiver, will be allowed to try and steer them off the path of righteousness. God wishes to see if His powers will be used by His people for good, or if you will be able to manipulate them into evil,"[/B] Gabriel stopped, shuddering at the thought, hoping that Lucifer would just laugh this off and tell him to go away. Unfortunately, Lucifer smiled. A bad sign. [B]"My...I do like the sound of that. But may I propose a slight change?"[/B] [B]"I don't thi--"[/B] Gabriel started; his voice full of worry, but Lucifer cut him off. [B]"How about my old friend chooses three youths that will take his place and I choose three that will take mine? That way, I don't have to ruin my reputation by deceiving innocent children." "But you?ll just turn three innocent children into monsters with your destructive powers.? "Yes."[/B] [B]"You disgust me, Lucifer."[/B] Gabriel turned to leave, already feeling a headache coming on as he twisted the scroll in his elegant hands. God knew everything, so he must have known Lucifer was going to propose a change to the bet. If He weren?t going to agree to it, He wouldn't have sent Gabriel down here in the first place. Behind him, Gabriel could hear Lucifer laughing, and despite his growing need to shut him up, he knew it wasn't the most angelic thing to do. So he left, grumbling all the way. ***[/CENTER][/COLOR] So, I was watching Bruce Almighty a couple of days ago... :p Yeah, I thought this would be fun. If I was a little unclear, the basic premise is this: God and Lucifer (not Satan, I don't like that name) are having another little bet, this one a bit more testing than the one they had a couple thousand years ago. Basically, they want to see how humans would manage without their help and how the followers of tomorrow will react to having these amazing powers granted to them. God is just wanting to have a little bit of fun and prove to Lucifer that good children with his powers won't bend to their own will while Lucifer wants to recruit more followers as well as show God that human needs are more powerful than faith in this day and age. Now, I will need three of you on each side. You don't have to believe in God to have his powers, or visa versa. But to have God's powers, it's obvious your character is going to be nicer than the ones who get Lucifer?s powers. For example: Someone who gets God?s powers may be a good student, always do their homework, and never tease anyone. Someone who gets Lucifer's powers may be a loner, disliked by people, and listen to death metal. Not necessarily a bad person, just someone easy to manipulate. As for a plot, there is actually one, don't fear. Even though God and Lucifer think that this will be a silly little game, the demons and angels have other ideas. They're out to set tests for the youths and will, most likely, start an apocalyptic war. If that was all very confusing I'm extremely sorry, I know what's going to happen, it just may not have come out as well as I would have liked >_> If all the places for the teenagers are filled, than angels and demons will be loved. <3 One more thing before the sign ups! The ones who God chooses are visited by Gabriel and those who Lucifer chooses are visited by Belial. [B][U]Sign up-[/U][/B] [B]Name:[/B] (I'm going to be cliché and base this in America, so western names plz) [B]Age:[/B] (Between 16 and 18) [B]Gender:[/B] (I'd like to have both genders on either side) [B]Alignment:[/B] (God/Lucifer) [B]Appearance:[/B] [B]Personality:[/B] [B]Reaction to Visit:[/B] (How did your character react? Are they still in denial? What plans do they have?) There are a couple of other things you'll need to know before the RP itself starts, but I'll put those in the Underground.
