a compliment and a question

Hi. Never done this before. Feel kinda weird contacting someone I don't know but...

Well, for the sake of transparency, let me say up front that I'm totally new to journals in general and DW in particular, so I apologize if I screw this up. Also, I'm not a part of Siren's Pull, but I have been reading it over while deciding if I wanted to try joining when applications open up.

Okay, so how about the compliment first?

I think your version of "Chuck" is awesome. I never thought I'd see anyone even attempt to play him, let alone get Him right! But you do a great job of walking that fine line between human and God. I like the way you've portrayed his attempts to remain himself and separate from Him. Both aspects of the character come across as genuinely caring and yet also terribly flawed. It's perfect. I'm probably not expressing myself well, but I hope you get the gist.

On to the question: It seems Chuck believes his vision showed all of the remaining angels in heaven will be killed by a power-crazed Castiel. Is this supposed to be a mistaken belief on his part or is that how you interpreted the scene? I ask because I thought he only killed those who had stood against him and followed Raphael during their war. At least, that's how I had interpreted the following quote (taken from a recap site):

"Understand, if you stood with Raphael, if you stood against me, punishment is certain. There is nowhere to hide. The rest of you… Our Father left a long time ago, and that was hard. I thought free will was the answer. But I understand now, you need a firm hand. You need a Father, and I am your Father now. Be obedient Children."

Um, so yeah. The whole "all the angels are dead" thing was throwing me off and I wanted to get your take on the canon events versus Chuck's vision. Maybe I'm wrong? Wouldn't be the first time.

BTW, you can turn off IP Logging if you go to Account Management, hit the Privacy tab, and scroll down (the IP logging on/off choice is near the bottom). I don't know if there is a way to do it for just one post or it has to be the whole journal. *shrugs* Oh, and anon was also not far as I could tell anyway.

Thanks for clearing that up! I like your line of reasoning, and how it plays into Chuck's emotional entanglement with the angels.

And no problem about the anon-thing. It's not like I had anything to hide. :)
