Linus is dead. Stabbed in his sleep by a malcontent mortal who'd pretended friendship to invite the Archangel to stay in his home for the night after singing away a storm. The killer was himself killed by the Archangel's brother, along for the trip, but this does not the less widow the angelica. It does not the less leave the country without its Archangel.

There were eighteen years left in Linus's term, and someone has to fill them out. Alleluia shoos her acolytes and addresses her interface.

The Archangel Linus is dead. Who will be the next Archangel?

The angel Isabella, daughter of the angel Rinnah and the mortal man Charles.

Alleluia's met her... She's very young, she would have been readier if she'd succeeded Linus at the natural end of his term, but Isabella it is.

...She should wait for this news to reach the Eyrie and for Isabella to ask her, but this is an emergency interim change of leadership. Perhaps Isabella would like to have the answer ready as soon as she touches down at Sinai.

And who will be her angelico?

Darius, son of Noah and Abigail.

That's... Well, that's not her acolyte's father's name, but -

- but isn't he adopted -

Alleluia clears the interface. She goes into the acolytes' dormitory and knocks at Darius's door.

Darius sets his book down and opens the door.

He blinks confusedly at the person who knocked. "Yes, Alleluia?"

More confused blinking.

"... Noah and Abigail."

"I am going to need some singing lessons," squeaks Darius. "Um. I'm not bad, just, not, practiced enough to, um, I'll work on it. Do you know the angel he named, is, she nice...?"

"Okay," says Darius in a small voice. "Um. I hope we'll get along? Jovah's good at this kind of stuff, right, he does it all the time."

Nod.

"Thank you. I um. Trust in Jovah, and, am sure we'll get along fine, and. Thanks."

[personal profile] castmyown 2015-10-19 08:57 pm (UTC)(link)
"Okay. I. Will - I don't have time to get singing lessons in a few days, do I, uh. Probably pack my stuff, it would need to be packed, wouldn't it."
castmyown: (k. So much to do)

[personal profile] castmyown 2015-10-19 09:02 pm (UTC)(link)
"Right, yes, they'll want to know. Thank you. Um. I. Am going to go do that now."
castmyown: (h. Might want to reconsider)

[personal profile] castmyown 2015-10-19 09:05 pm (UTC)(link)
He nods. "Yes. Thank you."

... Can he close the door now? Please? He needs to mutter some very frantic prayers to Jovah.

And the next day an angel appears at Mount Sinai.

Alleluia confers with her - and then goes looking for Darius.
castmyown: (l. Quiet time)

Darius is in his quarters, trying not to pace. His letters are written, his bags are packed, and he is running out of frantic prayers to murmur.

He is going to be the angelico. This involves getting married. This involves getting married and also singing in front of a large group of people. And he'll be living in the Eyrie, which is on a cliff, probably, unless he doesn't get along with the Archangel, in which case he'll make his new home under a rock.

Suffice to say, he has not been able to keep himself from pacing.

Meep.

"Coming!" he calls, nearly knocking over a lamp in his haste to open the door.

He opens the door, and suddenly he has no idea what to say.

'You are very pretty' is probably not the place to start. Neither is 'Your wings are very fluffy' or 'I need singing practice' or 'Can my family come live with us?' He stands there for an extended moment, trying to put appropriate words together. What do you say to the person who's supposed to be your soulmate?

Well, before he figures that out, a shock of pain from his kiss hauls him out of his reverie. Ow. Oh hey, soulmate. And he's been standing here not saying anything for. Longer than he'd like.

"... Hi."

"Hi. You're Darius?"

Her Kiss is going insane with its own colors, although if it hurts her she's got a heck of a pain tolerance.

"I, uh, yes." Pause. "I, don't actually know your name yet."
castmyown: (f. Getting a plan together)

[personal profile] castmyown 2015-10-19 09:33 pm (UTC)(link)
He does not say that is a pretty name, but he does think it, and a smile tugs at his lips.

"Nice to meet you."

"It's nice to meet you too. Um, are you ready to go to the Eyrie? I can carry you or if you'd rather I didn't I can ask to borrow one of Alleluia's children...?"
