When I initially came up with this story I kept thinking about a scripture I once read in the Bible. The reason it had me thinking about it so much was because I couldn’t shake the thought that God would forgive everyone for everything. The scripture read as such:
Luke 17:3 – 17:4
Take heed to yourself: If they brother trespass against thee, rebuke him; and if he repent, forgive him.
And if he trespass against thee seven times a day, and seven times in one day turn again to thee, saying, I repent; thou shalt forgive him.
This always stuck with me for some odd reason, and the reason for that was as a child I was told no matter what I did God would forgive me of my sins. Now, did this rule only apply to that of the human creature but to all creatures seen and unseen? It was this concept of forgiveness that gave birth to the story Broken Requiem. What if the most unlikely of creatures committed the most deplorable act of sin and defiance only to than ask God for forgiveness? What would be answer be if the answer even cam? Would God forgive this creature, or simply banish this creature to the depths of Hell never to be seen or heard from again?
This is in part the base of what Broken Requiem is all about.
