Hello, so can you please write some information about hell and the relationship mephistopheles with Providence? I want to write a second (maybe even a third) fan song, and I would not want to miss the canon. "Parallel" (my first fan song) was based on throwing Sock's feelings and there is no special plot there, but on the second song I have high hopes omg. A little bit about hell, maybe his story before Sock appeared there. 有難うございます!! (Sorry for my english, mmm)
Oh! Well I’d love to hear any fan songs you wrote (or write in the future!). I have a small collection of them saved on my computer, haha.
If you’d like, you can search this blog for “Mephistopheles, ask”, “Providence, ask”, or you can check out the W2H wiki section, “Around the universe” (the circle on the right), which has entries on Hell and Deities, as well as links to my posts on this blog! It’s kind of a roundabout way to find sources, but it’s very well-archived! (Sometimes I actually have to track down my posts by looking them up on the wiki, lol!)
The gist of it is that Providence was the only being in existence, so she created another being to share the experience with her. She had tried once before, making the first round of angels, but she’d made them unable to feel and comprehend negative emotions, and quickly got frustrated being surrounded by infallibly positive beings. Mephistopheles was her next attempt at an angel, and she only made one of him, so that–just in case she’d miscalculated like last time–she at least wouldn’t have to put up with a whole group of them.
They hit it off really well, and were sort of partners-in-crime, but when she started creating humans, he got pretty jealous, and it sort of boiled over into a big argument where she essentially pulled the cosmic equivalent of telling him to leave and go sleep on the couch. So the whole heaven and hell dichotomy is really just the result of a particularly bad break-up.
Mephistopheles started commiserating with the first humans that were undeniably sinners; the murderers and people who couldn’t pass on into a satisfying afterlife. After awhile he’d accumulated too many of these souls and it became something of a chore, so he had to find a way to process all of them. This became Hell, this became his job, and he kinda brought it all on himself.
That’s kind of a lengthy explanation, and like I said, you can find more details by digging through old posts/the wiki, but hopefully my attempt to compile/summarize it into one post helps you out a bit!
Definitely post the songs when you’re done, I’d love to check them out!
(P.S., your English is excellent!)
