I was wondering, have you ever seen “Good Omens”? If not, disregard this whole thing, but if so, I wanted to ask what Sully and Bartholomew’s thoughts on the series and its portrayals of the angel and demon bureaucracies would have been?

Sully: “Frankly, the idea that either side is that kind of organized is a bit outlandish, if you ask me. Tiers and hierarchies, I don’t think so. It’s like one person at the top and we just all do what she wants if we don’t want to die, and hope that she leaves us alone the rest of the time.”

Bartholomew: “He’s not…entirely wrong, actually. It’s much more of a single-point autocracy than a full hierarchy, at least these days. There was a whole military structure back in the day, but we basically did away with that when the war went cold. It’s kind of entertaining to imagine a world where we got all bureaucratic and red-tapey instead of just drifting apart and doing whatever we wanted, honestly.”

Sully: “Yeah, I guess it is kind of cool. I mean, wouldn’t want to live in a world where the apocalpyse was my fucking responsibility, but it’s kind of fun to think about. Seems like their version of angels and demons were a lot farther apart on a lot of things than we are, though.”

Bartholomew: “A lot closer, too, though, in some other ways. I think we interfere less, though.”

Sully: “You literally have a house in Pelican Bay that you invite people over to for supper somtimes.”

Bartholomew: “Whatever. I also think that the idea the book ends on is kind of interesting. That the next war isn’t going to be between us, but between us and humans.”

Sully: “Yeah, well, history bears that one out, doesn’t it? That’s the way it should be, if you ask me. The world’s gotta change at some point. Anyway, it’s a fun series. Hellhounds aren’t quite like that, though.”

Bartholomew: “Well, neither are a lot of things, that’s why it’s fiction. It’s a nice story. I like it too.”

  1. Thank you for answering this! They definitely do have a fair point about their organizations’ lack of organization *^* also, I’m now wondering if Sully meant “hell hounds aren’t like that in most popular legends” or “I met a hellhound once, and I don’t recall it being like that.” Because the first one is potentially the right way to read that, but the second one makes me wonder if there are hellhounds in this world O.O
