While we're establishing Hell and Lucifer (as seen below, in apocryphal_muse
's post) and the status of the religions, could we also decide on what Heaven's like? (:
I'm wondering whether or not to have Gabriel go back for his 'stuff' (mainly books and a couple of other personal items) or ask someone to bring it, since it was an impromptu decision to stay. Even if I decide to have him simply make do with the Manor library, which is way more likely, I would still like to know what our established Heaven will be like.
I assume that it can get rather boring, since in The Book Crowley threatens Aziraphale with an eternity of The Sound of Music
, and none of his favourite things (no pun intended) like chocolate or wine or precious first-editions or whiskers on kittens (sorry, couldn't resist). In my fic Reflections
, and other fics dealing with Heaven, I describe it as the Silver City, although that was only because I was following Gaiman's description of Heaven in Murder Mysteries
Do we use Gaiman's 'Silver City' as a basis and build from there? chrisvenus
says My vague thoughts would be of heaven as a place of art, fine classical music, beautiful architecture, beautiful gardens, fine food, and so on - a place of leisure. I would imagine that might have moved on a bit in more recent years and whether there are equivalents of more modern entertainments such as cinema, rock music, etc. is a little more fuzzy in my head...
I think heaven has to be more like a city though because people live their afterlife there. And given everybody who arrives is there for eternity its going to be pretty big...
Your thoughts, please!
