You think you know--what's to come, what you are. You haven't even begun.





Welcome back to the bonfire, my fellow Forsaken! We have now reached Level Seven in our journey through hell.

Guarded by the Minotaur, who snarls in fury, and encircled within the river Phlegethon, filled with boiling blood, is the Seventh Level of Hell. The violent, the assasins, the tyrants, and the war-mongers lament their pitiless mischiefs in the river, while centaurs armed with bows and arrows shoot those who try to escape their punishment. The stench here is overpowering. This level is also home to the wood of the suicides- stunted and gnarled trees with twisting branches and poisoned fruit. At the time of final judgement, their bodies will hang from their branches. In those branches the Harpies, foul birdlike creatures with human faces, make their nests. Beyond the wood is scorching sand where those who committed violence against God and nature are showered with flakes of fire that rain down against their naked bodies. Blasphemers and sodomites writhe in pain, their tongues more loosed to lamentation, and out of their eyes gushes forth their woe. Usurers, who followed neither nature nor art, also share company in the Seventh Level.

Hi, shouldn't really be online (my sister bagged the compuet this evening) but had to sneak in to show my solidarity for PR. I too know the pain of becoming consumed with things other people dismiss as irrational. We all love you the most PR!

Going now!

See you soon.

13


13, arrogant punk he is, waltzes up to the enormous Minotaur, gloved hands at the ready.

"Only reason there's a stench is you, pal!"

THe minotaur roars in his face, and puts his dukes up.

"Exactly what I wanted. GAAAHHH!"

13 latches onto the MInotaurs back, biting and clawing, while the rest of the FOrsaken look on in wonder.

I'm just gonna jump in and forsake myself cause I don't want to go to any heaven that wouldn't have y'all as members, but you already passed the pi-th level of hell which is where I most recently claimed to be.

I brought the air conditioners, but if you keep descending at this rate you’ll have no need of them soon.

That why you're wearin' a pi-th helmet?
Looks good, and judging by the 13 vs. Minotaur
tango I'd say it might protect you from flying

Brought more bananas for all, and a cask of lovely
dark rum.

Oh, and here's the fumarole in case there isn't room around the pyre.

I don't want to get kicked out of hell or anything, but if I were willing to pledge myself to a god, even a nice god of pretty stuff, I've ended up in some heaven or other, unless I allied with the loser, but then I'd have come to hell with credentials.

Can't I just say, "I like you, here's some blood."
