Author's Note

Okay, that is by far the most bizarre thing I have ever written. oO It truly is. It's late, and I'm hungry, and I had just re-read all of AS. So, I decided to write.

Let me first give a small introduction to this AS series, "The Bible". I guess essentially the idea is expressed from spiritual beliefs of my own, and what AS has explored. I guess, in a way, this is a little introspective series.

The first part, Sin, is a stand-alone one-shot. It was the main idea that "The Bible" branched from. It is told from Belial's perspective in the aftermath of everything that had happened in the original story. It's Belial's contemplation of sin, and their very existence. In fact, many of the parts in "The Bible" is an introspective into existence.

This is why Repentance is such an important part of the series. This is the only author's note that I will write for the entire series. The whole idea behind Repentance is greatly due to what I believe in happened after the deaths of the Angels, since they don't exactly go to Hades. I tried to answer that all important question, "what happens after we die?", through Rosiel and through this fic. I hope you got what I was trying to say.

The voice that speaks to Rosiel is what I envision as the true God, or whatever you want to call it. I am a bizarre religious atheist, so I make no sense half of the time. But I have always believed that God was Existence, what we are, and what we shall come to be. Our past, our present, and our future.

So, I tried to express this with Rosiel. I had to reunite Rosiel with Katan because giving him any more pain would be unbearable. I really love his character and what he represents.

I hope you enjoyed Repentance. It is one of my more bizarre, yet spiritual works. I hope you will continue to read into "The Bible" series. This will be the only note attached to any other one-shot in this series, till the very final story. Please, if you still feel confused, e-mail me and I will try to explain as best as I can.
