Angel batches
So I've been tossing this idea around a while about Angels batches. Namely, we know that there are choirs and proto angels and so on and so forth but I don't think God just stopped with what he had left after the wars. I think he created more.

so this led me to thinking about the way some angels act that i've run across and i've started to group them in what i call batches. Bear with my crude interpretation but God is up there with his Angel mold and a cauldron. in his cauldron he's putting in all kinds of stuff. Bits of this, bits of that, parts from this animal, parts from this creature, etc. However god isn't using a recipe, he just mixes his recipe kind of making it up as he goes and then pours the mixture into his Angel molds and out pops the latest batch.

Now when he needs another batch or somethingn from the previous batch wasn't quite right he goes back and tries again. Now i'm sure the basic idea of angel creation has a certain recipe to follow but i often wonder why some Angels are more cat like than others. Some have the proverbial stick up their ass while others don't. some are more fae, while others despise the fae. etc etc etc and it doesn't seem to be restricted to just the younger act a certain way or the older ones are this way. It just feels like if your born on date stamp (check the bottom of your foot) says X then you are from this batch made with these ingredients. While the batch after you may have had the same ingredients they got fewer of something that you got more of.

i don't know if i explained this as well as i would like. my brain is a bit fried, but what do you think?

Re: Angel batches
I wasn't around to see whatever happened after the war, but I'd think that all the angels He created afterwards wouldn't be given free will. I could just see Him doing that to make sure nothing like that ever happened again. Tsk. (If anyone here was around up there afterwards and knows anything about it, I'd like to know. Because I'm not a big fan of just assuming things.)

But yeah, I just wanted to say that the literal image God cooking up new angels, pouring batter into molds and putting them in an oven... <!-- sBig Grin --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_biggrin.gif" alt=":D" title="Very Happy" /><!-- sBig Grin --> That was a cute funny way to put it. I can just imagine this whole Emeril thing going on.

God: *pulls angels out of oven* BAM! Now doesn't that look good?
Audience: Mmmhmm!
God: Now let's add a little seasoning... *sprinkles garlic* Oh yeah baby!

Re: Angel batches
I personally don't believe in batches or the like, I believe that each Angel is specifically designed for the purpose given. I believe that the Creator is omniscient and set everything up according to plan, I theorize even that the Morning Star was meant to Fall for very important reasons(I will expand upon this later).

I believe that Angels are individuals, and as such can make their own choices and have (and always had) free will. The catch is that there is a job to do, if you decide not to do your job, you lose it and the benefits that came along with it. I do not believe any Angel is put in a job they do not have the skills for, as they are built for the job (thusly frictional unemployment is non-existent among the Angelic work force).

To some that would say that the Creator made Angels his favorite and special children and then left them for mankind, I recall that Angels were made as servants, to do jobs and even to plan the existence of this universe, thusly most everyone knew what was on the way billions of years before mankind made a debut.

I don't believe in different batches, I do however believe in procreation between Angels of male and female gender, and I believe that these are the wild cards that have their jobs chosen for them based on whatever talents they have upon being born. I don't believe in poor picks in that respect because the being doing the choosing knows every single aspect about them, including ever aspect of their parents.

Re: Angel batches
I think you might have misunderstood me Terro. I was referring more towards the way Angels act, their personalities and mannerism, and in a way this also relates to how they taste and smell. I wasn't taking their assigned/given jobs into account when talking about batches.

Re: Angel batches
What I was mainly trying to convey was that each Angel is an individual, has a personality, which is why some are more catlike, some seem like they've got a stick up where their glory don't shine...

Many who have specific purposes may tend towards certain personalities, but you can stereotype that the same as for Humans in specific jobs. What is the stereotypical Marine? What is the stereotypical lawyer? What is the stereotypical plumber?

Do you really want an answer to this question?


(well, for one thing, he's usually got his a** hanging halfway out of his trousers... <!-- s:lol: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_lol.gif" alt=":lol:" title="Laughing" /><!-- s:lol: -->)


I actually kind of agree with both the Toaster Faerie and Terro on this (except the whole Grand Master Plan thing. I like to believe that the Powers-That-Be [or what-have-you] made everything and let it all do whatever. It keeps life interesting). I personally was created for a specific (if very, very broad in scope) purpose, but I'm relatively sure there were a bunch of angelic types created around the same time to do more or less the same thing. We all sort of do different aspects of the job, but the main purpose is the same. If that makes sense.

Re: Angel batches
I suppose if they fall into the same job they can act the same. But there are those that are in completely different jobs, which in thought would mean two different personalities, that still act like they are cut from the same mold. If that makes sense.

it's just taken from my experiences with the few Angels i've come across. <!-- sBig Grin --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_biggrin.gif" alt=":D" title="Very Happy" /><!-- sBig Grin --> Not trying to say it's fact or anything. And I hate boxes and labels myself, but sometimes you do need them to help define things in your head.

Yep, that oughta kick it up a few notches. XD

That's an interesting theory, to say the least. Makes sense in a lot of ways, and does explain why there'd be different numbers of different types, some more atypical to the traditional depiction than others.

>_> ... <_< There's like.. 13 of critters like us, speculates my friend and I, and one other who I've yet to be introduced to.
