I’m hoping this little prelude will explain some changes I am going to make to my Family of Angels series which I am going to be rewriting here and there to make it make more sense. Please let me know what you think!
A Family of Angels prelude.
The large hall was noisy, full of vibrant colors and equally vibrant beings of the mystical variety, those of the more Chaotic varieties that is.
They had all been called into this meeting by one of their oldest and more eccentric members, who flashed up onto the podium in a flash of bright light and actually showing his true angelic winged self for a change; Loki also known as the Archangel Gabrielle was now in the room.
His fellow beings of chaos stared at him in confusion.
“What’s going on Loki?” one of them demanded. Those who had known of his angelic self refused to call him by that name, much preferring his Trickster self.
Before Loki could respond however a quiet feminine airy gleeful voice spoke from the back of the hall somehow managing to be heard despite the quietness of her words.
“The world is going to change and we are going to be the ones to change it.”
The crowd respectfully parted for the powerful petite blonde wearing a purple jacket, and a wolf pendant on a black cord around her neck, and who made her way up to the stage. Once there an Italian looking man in a sharp Armani suit helped her onto the stage and followed her up as well.
“That’s right,” Loki agreed and then nodded his head in a gesture to the Italian. “A chaos mage is going to call upon the power of Janus here to turn the people who wear certain spelled costumes into the costumes themselves during that All Hallows Eve in a small town in California, now I was and am going to take advantage of this to cause some fun changes in the world, but as I was planning those changes and about inviting you all to join me in the changes Miss Bad Wolf here bought something to my attention.”
Bad Wolf’s eyes glowed and a golden light seemed to swirl playfully around her as she spoke up, “Time itself would normally be horribly disturbed by such a large changes and cause massive destruction while it righted itself,” all beings there shuddered as they heard the deadly warning imbued with her words. “However as I, myself, will be involved with all the changes along with my fellow Beings of Time and Destiny, we will be making sure all of the changes you propose will take without massive consequences which will cause all life on Gaia to croak it.” The three fates stood behind her, dressed in modern day beach bum ware yet bizarrely looking deadly with their arms crossed and stern faces and the power they exuded.
Now most beings would presume that the beings of Time and Fate would be Beings of Order and partially they would be right, but time was not just a straight forward line. As one Time’s children once explained it - "People assume that time is a strict progression from cause to effort but actually, from a non-linear, non-subjective viewpoint, it's more like a big ball of wibbly wobbly timey whimey... stuff." – And like time itself personages like Bad Wolf had to be very on the ball and flexible when it came to the small things otherwise they would go insane from the stress and destroy everything just to get some peace and quiet.
After a moment, while all of them respectfully considered her words, Bad Wolf smiled brightly and clapped her hands, causing some of her fellow Beings to jump in surprise. “But other than that . . . Have Fun!”
It took a moment before they all realized just what was happening. They were being allowed to go on a Chaotic rampage around the world, making changes here and there mostly by their own whims.
World and universe beware, Chaos was going to have one heck of a blow out party.
The End, for the moment!
