@impurestcheese: I wrote something like this once. It was the one thing I ever wrote for 5th Column. You might remember it, I think it was called "The Loser". Though that one ended in a supernatural way in an attempt to make it a part of that universe, the rest of it was 100% me. Certain elements like setting and characters may have been different, but emotionally it was all me and how I was feeling at that time.

That being said what "Allison" is going through I feel is simply a season in her life, and that season is coming to an end. Allison didn't need to be working in a destructive environment, and I think that now that this season for her has ended it means liberation and unlimited potential for the future. It would be up to her though to see how her story ends. Will it be a tragedy? Or will it be a tale of inspiration that everyone looks to in the future just to see "how she did it". I think from reading the beginning of Allison's story that there is indeed hope for her future, and her story is not yet over.

Good theory, except "people are busy" does not explain why they turn around and jump on a new group.

No what explains that is that is that most writers have fickle minds and fluid imaginations. When the writer has the sudden burst of inspiration they automatically want to hop onto the new idea. Kind of like a squirrel that excitedly gathers acorns from a new tree and then all of a sudden forgets where they hid the nuts. So writers are just quicker to go to a new tree rather than dig up the nuts they've already hoarded.

It's not a bad idea, but it heavily relies on each individual writer's ability to be a team player. Also communication is key. I've personally always liked the idea of shorter arcs. The problem you run into there is each writers personal commitment ability. As a general rule though, this method could work well, just as in everything, different factors will effect outcomes differently.

I win, you know why. Cause I get disappointed with the writing and rip the comic in half, thus destroying their entire world. I am God to these fictional playthings :P

@joshmightbe: Oh, well honest mistake then. :P I figure he wouldn't look to highly on those of his rank who caused him to be be punished along with them.

@joshmightbe: I meant more so for those Grigori that Belial are calling dogs. Some wouldn't take too kindly to the comparison.

@joshmightbe:

"So because my brothers couldn't keep it in their pants I got punished for nothing. Not one of my brothers came to ask that the innocents be spared, they all cowered in the corner like good little dogs."

Those are fighting words, you'll come to find out.

I really liked this chapter and I'm looking forward to where you're going to go. This does clear things up a bit better from the first chapter. By the way, I'll be posting my first part by Friday. I wanted to put it out today, but I've been sick the past two days and unable to write.

@cbishop: I thought about stretching out the reveal but I figured it'd be better to just get it out there so I could get on with the story. I'm just going to assume everyone will know which brother Gabriel was referring to up there in his response to Micheal's line about vanity.

@batkevin74: Interesting start. I'm not familiar with this mythology at all, but I'm usually a big fan of your writing so I'm looking forward to where you're going to go with this.
