You're digging yourself a hole with this one Nena. What if a god went into cardiac arrest and was then shocked back to life? Was still dead for a few minutes...was it enough to break the life bond with his demonic doublet?

Urd is right, you're opening a whole barrel of worms. If that was all it took, Hild would be all over it. If she could kill off her demons, dropping gods in their tracks, and bring back even half of them, she'd have done it ages ago.

I suspect their souls would still be bound together, at least until they reached Hel. They would probably be separated there, with no possibility of them returning to the living, together or separately.

Doublet aside, how's chapter 47 going?

 

Can we hope for an update this week? Or shall we settle for next week only?

Look, I know you're impatient, we all are, but could you not start nagging them on Tuesday? :biggrin:
If we bug Nena too much, she might delay Chapter 47 just to honk us off. :cry: She's warned us before.
I've asked for — well, begged for — weekly status updates, so let's wait and see what comes of that.

World of Elegance had not been born with the incorporated genetic material of the rabishu after all.

Yeah, how did that happen? When did rabishu DNA get into Lind? When she destroyed the second one? When it tore off Spear Mint's wing? Maybe you've got a piece of backstory for us.

So, when it's you who asks, it's ok, the others, not so much?

Sorry guys, my idea of what happens to gods/demons when they die (and connected via a horrible soul-joining event to a complete stranger) is a little different from everyone elses.  Regardless, it's not something this story was ever really intended to address, and not really something I intend to pursue.  I'll duck out of that kind of conversation and let you guys duke it out form here on out.

It's okay to ask about the progress of a chapter.  I'm 3600 words right now, which roughly equates to around 7 pages.  Based off current schedule limitations and a sudden and intense desire to go to a 'snake cafe' and play with snakes, we're probably looking at a two-week update.  I'd been waiting for almost a year to write that last chapter, and I was in the zone with that one, but this chapter is going to require a bit more careful consideration given the players involved.

Just don't continuously harass me about chapter updates and 'expecting' a chapter release every week.  Not saying anyone specifically is guilty of it, but it's a pain in the butt when people whine.

You forget what Lind was doing to the rabishu before the ceiling came down on her? She was literally ripping it apart with her bare hands.

By the time rescue forces discovered her, they found Lind coated in a mysterious substance that looked and smelled like blood, but for some reason drove their angels absolutely batshit insane. (shi ka ka!) One angel even went so far as to surface without being called, and almost attacked the unconscious POW before her host was able to call her back.  Further revelations found what was left of an alien corpse nearby, and because of the negative reaction from the angels, rescue forces took the safe route and treated both it and Lind as biohazard.  Upon retrieval and further investigations, evidence of the rabishu and documentations of what it was designed for began to surface and were translated, while scientists began investigating the angel eater itself.  Nebo in particular, upon word reaching him that the thing ate angels, got himself involved-something he could only do as a BelTic.  He took a vested interest in the creature's designs and how they affected the angels, as he wanted to design a way to counter it as a threat-something that might make the angels upappealing to the rabishu or null the affects of its screech on its prey.  He actually began to reverse-engineer it, to an extent-just to give you an idea of his capabilities as both a Tic, scientist, and bio-engineer (don't forget who/what he created).  Part of that involved a lot of experimentation and a lot of failures. Part of that included a small bit of madness. Most of it included imagination: if a 'man-made' creature could feed off another 'man-made' creature and obtain nutrients from it, was it possible to reverse the process somehow?  Perhaps use that same mechanism used to ingest a magical entity and process it as energy for an angel?

...Maybe, say, regrow a wing?  Perhaps even regenerate the bare, lingering, threads of RNA and DNA from an angel that was previously destroyed?

LETS FIND OUT KYZ!

...needless to say, Cool Mint, in all her apparent normalcy, was the last thing he expected.

He'd expected anything from absolute failure in which nothing happened to strange and horrible mutations that would have left Spear Mint crippled and Lind (possibly) mad.

He sure as shit hadn't expected another angel to grow and make up for what Spear Mint lost.

I think it's pretty clear — it's like a 'cat cafe' only with snakes. I know, some people are squeamish about snakes.
My dad was. "Get that thing out of the house!"
"But Dad, it's just a harmless garter snake."
"OUT!"

something with wings like an angel, wings like Rota's Storm Bringer

Does that mean that abomination ate Rota's angel from the inside, and then grew some sort of evil version of her?

So Nebo used rabishu DNA on Lind. 'What the hell, after fifty years it's not like she can get any worse!' Then was absolutely thrilled, both as a scientist and as the Ojichan of all angels, when first, she woke up, and then out pops Cool Mint!

What do you think Mara and her gang are doing?  Hild's a busy woman, and at this point in her life she's made the uncomfortable realization that she can no longer go out and do the fun stuff, and so instead has to send other people to go out and do the fun stuff for her.   

Right.

 

And what exactly are Mara and her gang doing again?

 

Hild is always 3 steps ahead of everybody else. If Hagall hates Urd so much, Hild would've have picked it long ago and suspected she could be up to something. 

So, what is Mara's mission?

A - To find out what exactly whoever stole the bio-weapon wants to do with it?

B - To find enough evidence that Hagall is plotting behind her back and arrest her?

C - To protect Urd?

The last one is the most unlikely one, 'cause if it was, Mara woudn't have gone after Hagal and left Urd to deal with the bio-weapon alone with Lind. If it was thou, all i could say was: YOU HAD ONE JOB MARA!!!!

 

So either A or B...

 

hmmmm

Are you talking about the mite that brought Lind and Urd down? Because that thing was preying only on the rabishu. It never directly consumed anything from Rota or her angel but indirectly absorbed pieces of it via the nutrition it took from the angel eater as it grew-something again that can be found in nature, where it's believed that wasps evolved in part based off the genetic material they absorbed from the host caterpillars their larvae grew inside.  I read a small article about it once that brought about that idea.

Like I said, there was a little bit of madness involved.  When you're an ageless entity whose been around since before the Aesir, which Tyr, Odin, and the Norns are all a part of, built the foundation for what is now Asgard, you tend to have a few nuts rattling loose in the head.  And he's not ojichan. He's Agarin.

If you haven't come to your own conclusions by now, then you'll see them in the next chapter!  (Techincally it wasn't one job per say, but many...)

Well, i have lot's of theories (even showed you some)...but i'm not even 80% sure on any of them...

 

Would also like to find out more about the "remember our talk" line...

 

What?

"be careful?"

"Don't do anything reckless?"

"remember to take pics after it's done!!!" XD
