When God created Lucifer, he named him the Adversary. This was not, in itself, a bad thing because God needed perspective; someone to bounce ideas off and tell him when he was being
hypocritical, over-critical, or just plain stupid.
Lucifer applauded creation. He applauded Eden and the first mortals too, but when God banished Lilith for being too outspoken, he put his foot down and helped her to escape. When Adam and Eve were thrown out of the Garden for eating the fruit of the Tree of
Knowledge and went their separate ways, he fell in love.
“Mourning Light” is the apocryphal story of the wise and generous Lucifer doing his best for the poor antediluvian mortals that God seems intent upon wiping from the Earth. Surely there must be some worth saving, and not just his own lad, Cain.
After all, if you put a tub of ice-cream in a garden full of children, why would you expect them to heed the sign that says “Don’t eat this”?
You wrote this after I did that post "Why Miss Snark Loves Satan" right?
This is pretty funny but there's no indication of a plot, or a focal point of the story.
It's a good premise and an interesting idea but it's not yet hook. Back to the tree of knowledge for more applesauce.
