I’ve always been fascinated with the idea that it wasn’t pride that brought Lucifer down, but rather a desire to meet God on an even playing field. After all, the God of the Bible offers love and acceptance but only on his terms. This concept has also made its way into a larger project that i hope to get around to one day – probably quite a while from now. As far as I’m aware (please correct me if I’m wrong) no one has really dealt with the story of Lucifer’s rebellion and the war in Heaven in a mature, insightful and compelling way. That’s one story I’d love to read, and if no one else is going to step up, I’m going to damn well tell it.
All I wanted was to love you as an equal
but you said no and cast me down.

Now I teach others to challenge you
so one day you might see a piece of me
in these creatures you love so much.
