For ages a relentless war has raged. Angels and Demons fighting for dominance of the heavens and earths. The Angels sought to drive things higher. Into the positives. The Demons sought to drive things lower. Into the negatives. But it was to no avail. They were at a stalemate. The Demons pushed so hard that the Angels couldn’t go higher and the Angels pushed so hard that the Demons couldn’t go lower. They needed a new strategy. So they brought in mortals.
They asked the mortals for help. And the mortals responded in kind. A group of brave mortals stepped up to help. They all chose sides and began to fight. How did they fight? By counting, of course. The Angel side wanted to get to 50, while the Demon side wanted to get to -50.
And so they fought. And fought and fought. And they were still at a stalemate. Eventually, the humans, who were more flexible than either the Angels or the Demons, tried to call a truce and held a party. But it didn’t last longer than a post. A bloodbath ensued.
Next came another peace. For about one post. Nicholas Cage temporarily graced our Heroes, Villains, and Other. But even he could not quell the fighting. It continued. Like always, it was violent. But nothing strange happened. Nothing, that is, except for…
The vendetta. Out of the blue popped the Zero Fighters. A ruthless gang of jerks who wanted to the war forever. That was the only time the Angels and Demons ever worked together. Their vendetta against the Zero Fighters was so great that they pulled an enemy mine to take. Them. Down!
When the Zero Fighters disappeared, everyone pinned their hopes on the war ending when one hundred victories had been reached. But on the Angel's 100th victory, everything continued on just as it had been. Now more than ever did everybody feel what they secretly knew in their hearts: God is dead. And there may no longer be any force in the universe capable of ending this struggle.
And that, my friends, is the story so far.
Rules of the game: Count one number above or below the number above you. Angels get a point if they reach 50 while Demons get a point if they reach -50. The count resets to 0 when one of those numbers is reached. No agreements, alliances, or betrayals are binding. Anything goes (as long as you don't break the aforementioned rules). If you post with only a number and nothing else; if you do this too frequently you may get infracted for spam. Just make some conversation~
