sure & faust

Goethe’s Faust (inspired) AU
In which God bets with Mephisto that all his creations (humans and Mephisto himself) will eventually return to God, no matter how far they’ve strayed from him.
Mephisto, unwilling to have God taunt him, offers a deal to one of the immortal creations. He offers him to experience life as mortal, in return for his services after the human body has died.
The immortal, being curious about what life would be like as an ephemeral being, and wanting to know both suffering and happiness, agrees to the pact. Mephisto has him reborn as Moriyama’s second son. This time, he promises, that God’s creation will not return to the rightful path.

Blue Exorcist timeline

Information gathered from: Chapter 87, 86, 78, 76, 75, 74, 39, 10, a shit ton of theories when what book was written and when what thing was built, the wikia, Wikipedia, my shitty math skills, assuming time periods by staring too long at chapter 86, researching school starts and breaks in Japan, the drama Faust which I reread twice for Blue Exorcist, some more manga chapters and finally two  posts by @duskwitch about the age of the Ba’al!

Also, as duskwitch informed me, there is a poster in chapter 45 stating it’s the year 201X. For the sake of actual dates though, I used 2009 as the present because it’s the year Blue Exorcist got published.

This could be more detailed probably but I’m not gonna search through every panel of the manga now. Maybe next weekend though and then add whatever else I find. It’s a work in progress! Now then, let’s get started:

38.000 BC [first cave drawing]: Creation of the concept of Ba’als; all demons perhaps?
