Decadent Angels, Part 4: Descent



The cage door had opened into that hideously bright light and the cage began to tip
The seven of us freshly slain were unceremoniously dumped into that radiance
A small scream escaping the lips of the smallest boy with us
He could not have been more than six
We fell fast and hard landing in a soft squishy white substance
Looking around this vast misty place I spied to the left a dark passage
Quickly I squeezed my eyes shut and rolled so I could not see that foreboding place
The others shivered on the ground
We were soaking wet, I wondered if this were our final destination
Or if there was some deeper hell in store for us
I began to crawl towards the right I could see forms beginning to take shape
The other six followed mindlessly behind me,
Somehow I must have seemed the strong one,
The shapes became clear, a jewel encrusted gateway,
An angel all in white at a podium next to the gate, he must be St. Peter I thought
He had an open book before him, and a line of people stretching towards us
A few of my companions held their jaws agape
I allowed myself a moment to imagine going up to St. Peter
I knew he would clear his throat and boom "Ah, Gillian Neales, for the crime of
Wasting your life, you have been condemned to Hell. Good-bye."

Decadent Angels - Part 3: In a Pathetic Flash




The demonic witching hour came to a close and the false angels
Had completed their standard cruel mission with reckless bloody abandon
My freshly released soul was wrenched upward to a holding cell
Which I'd failed to notice previously
Contained within - six other miserable souls
Also this night brutally slain by these falsely haloed beasts,
They huddled together so tight that when I was added to their number
I was left coldly to the side to shiver in the sudden burst of frigid air
A tunnel oft traversed by the freshly dead blew open beside us
Blinding bright white light burned through my retina into the back of my mind
And pulled forth in a wild sort of montage of my life,
Uneventful and pathetic as it had been,
I saw my overly detailed birth (could have gone without that memory in the mix),
My mother and father raising me yet barely knowing me at all,
My bratty little brother coming along when I was four and screaming for days,
He always was a whiner, and he lived to pester me,
I saw me pushing him away,
Not bothering to know him the way my parents didn't bother to with me,
Then he was gone from our lives, hit by a car when I was sixteen
My bleak period of isolated morning that lasted through the rest of high school flashed by,
Then my vague attempt to get my life together,
Applying to schools then not being able to afford to go,
Working at a local supermarket these last three years,
And spending countless wasted hours watching TV in alone in my tiny apartment,
Then my poor excuse of a life ceased flashing with my violent death,
Offhandedly I wondered if any of the others in this cage
Had lived such fruitless pointless lives
I was then filled with bitter regret
In my mind I began to scream at the injustice and with an unquenchable rage
I wanted another shot, I wanted revenge and I wanted to stop these
Hellspawn harpies from taking away any others the way they'd taken me
As my innards screamed out I felt something distant and powerful awaken
But before I had time to figure out anything more than that
The cage door opened out into the scathingly bright light

Decadent Angels - Part 2: True Visage





Fear of death had long been my companion but
Somehow these decadent angels made it sound more appealing
And yet a cold grip of unease snaked up my spine
Virtue is their well planned guise
Hard to see through yet I knew something was so very wrong
Running so hard acid burning through my lungs and veins
Intuition screaming for me to flee
The petite blonde angel calling my name in the most luscious way
"Do not run little girl. Everyone should be so lucky as you to have us come"
"These are things they pray for yet we offer them unto you sweet juicy child"
I streaked through the neighbor's yard, in the dead of three a.m.
Flying above they keened on cruelly taunting me for my frail human form
Tempting me with secret desires and unnamed longings
They could not be as they seemed, few things are
I slipped in a wet patch of mud and tumbled into a bush
So close to jumping the fence I'd been,
Trilling a cry of miserable victory -
As one they converged on my twitching form
Slowly they plucked away my life in insane torture
Their gleaming claws red with my freshly spent blood
Surely oblivion would wash over me and blot out what was to come next
I was not so lucky, and angels these were not
But instead wretched demons out to play during the demonic witching hour
Seven souls they were dispatched to drag into the fiery pits of Hell this night
And every night before and if they have their wicked way every night yet to come,
Tonight I was number seven

Decadent Angels - Part 1: Lure & Pursue

                 Next |




Decadent angels wander my way
Determined I run far away
In abhorrent pursuit these angels reveal sick hidden darkness
Part of me wants to enter that domain
Beyond reproach Beyond sanity Beyond into a cold here after
Calling out to me these lovely celestial vixens cry for me to fly away with them
Destruction Havoc Chaos sublime they make promises but I am hard to find
"Join us tonight and dine in the presence of the divine"
"Hallow out your soul and burst up into the sky because tonight is the night you die"




... to be continued...

What Is Decadent Angels?

Decadent Angels is a fictional series I am writing.  It is under my copyright.

The basic premise


It is the story of Gillian Neales, who after a seemingly wasted 22 years on Earth, is slaughtered in a routine slaying by 5 demons posing as angels who take 7 "innocents" as tribute to the Dark Prince of Hell, Azrael. He casually sentences them to eternity in the Lake of Fire. A force awakened by Gillian's sheer unadulterated rage has other plans for Gillian's afterlife however. Hope her couch potato skillset comes in handy.


Intended audience, Format, & Genre
  • The series is not intended for children and may contain mature content due to the following [contains some explicit language, some violence and horror imagery, some sexual themes, as well as possibly controversial themes, be advised]. Also, I say you are responsible for what you and your children read online or anywhere else.
  • Current Format - ongoing fictional story-poem in the first person, posting when I can. The story goes far deeper than the current format allows...
  • Potential Formats – comic book versions, novelization (in prose form), cartoon, video game, and/or more. I may work my way into each of these some day for the series, I keep things like that in mind every time I work on a project. There will be merchandise available for the series, probably starting later this year.
  • Genres - Fiction, Horror, Paranormal, some Humor, some Romance (most fiction usually does), eventually some Cyberpunk (once Gillian makes it Earthside again)


History of the writing process


     Decadent Angels started off as a creative writing exercise on one of my Yahoo 360 pages. When I was in high school I took a creative writing class, and one of our assignments was to write a story poem, I'd always intended to play with that again someday. So I was wracking my brain for an idea for a regular feature for that blog, remembering the concept of a story poem I decided to try my hand at a serial story poem.
I mostly was simply curious to see if I could do it. This was the first series I jumped right into without doing any preliminary background work. I did not know if the storyline would take hold in my mind or not, but it did. By the time I reached the 7th or 8th installment in the series, the lack of any background material and printer ink was beginning to catch up with me, so I began working on that which had slowed my progress some. However a nice bonus to starting the background work was I started to also figure out where I was going with the story.
     The 1st installment titled Lure & Pursue was written very quickly and posted to one of my Yahoo 360 blogs instantly on March, 24, 2007. It’s the shortest of them all, and a bit of an intro to the style. Naturally it has evolved and grown over time. In the early days of the series I was writing them directly in the blog posting window, then in pasting into Notepad and then hand copying them to a notebook before posting all the way through part 8, as part of the editing process. Don’t ask me why I did it that way, I’m bipolar and these things happen.
     At the end of 2007, Yahoo made an announcement in the 360 blog that major changes were going down during 2008. It sounded as though the 360 could disappear at any moment, Decadent Angels went on hiatus while I decided where to move it too. Good thing I had the foresight to not get too attached to that blog host, because Yahoo 360 officially shut down in July 2009. In March 2008, I re-posted parts 1-6 in my myspace blog, which I chose because I log into myspace fairly often. Then two weeks later part 7 went up. I had been posting it there until January 2009, when my personal life forced it into hiatus.
     Things went alright, people continued to read it, and it did better there than on yahoo, but the blog function was not ideally suited to this type of blog and the blog writing tool on my desktop does not work with it, also all that I do on myspace distracts me from posting the series, so I think it best to give it it’s own space. I tried taking it monthly but there was much interference from my personal life, so it has yet to make it to that frequency. Besides it’s not my only project. With part 12, I began splitting the installments up into sections, so that I would not have to leave story bits out, and to accommodate the entry size. I don’t know if Blogger has a character limit, so I will find out, if I split them into smaller chunks that’ll be why.
     Decadent Angels installments have grown larger over time, but I don’t want that to discourage people from reading it, I know blogs are typically shorter than it tends to be, but this is a huge ongoing story, and not the kind of thing one would normally find in a blog to begin with, and to shorten it further would cheat the readers, and myself. If you think I’m writing a novel it’s because I am. The last installment written with myspace as it’s host was in January 2009, part 12 section 1.
     My productivity is increasing and I made a lot of organizational progress in the past year. Now with the capacity to devote this blog entirely to all things Decadent Angels, installments of the story should come out at a more stable rate, especially now that I have my own website. Lead-ins will remain in my blog at myspace and future installment lead-ins will also be put there as a courtesy to those who read it there.
     Decadent Angels should come out of hiatus in early 2010.

Extras


     One of the things I’m intending to do now that Decadent Angels is coming here is to post additional supplementary content. Things like background features, history from within the Decadent Angels universe, explanations, character profiles, art and much more. If I have something to put up in addition to the story it will go in here, including merchandise release announcements, and faux interviews with the characters, and even little features on what is going on outside of Gillian’s knowledge. Eventually much of these things will also be available in print form for those who want such tangible outside of the computer things.
***
Well that’s all for now, I hope you enjoy this experiment.
