(I think that there are celestials playing with my dreamscapes on a regular basis here...)
[Imagine yourself sitting in a movie theater, watching the green "This preview has been approved for all audiances" thing, and then the slightly overloud voiceover and music begins...]
Actress Lori, walking down city street, possibly narrowly avoiding getting hit by a taxi or something.
Something to do with answering phones, calling instructions, etc. Busy office scene. She's obviously having a harrowing day.
Lori walks into apartment, drops all groceries, says in shock: "MOM?"
Camera cuts to elegantly dressed lady -- in green and horns, with some cool shimmery special effects that do a nice little <wham> to a normal actress. "Hello, dear. Could you do me a little favor?" [I like "Captain Janeway" for my fave. Demon Princess. Don't ask *me* why...]
Camera cuts to Lori looking in shock as a bracelet appears on her wrist
with some glittery SFX (sparks spiraling in from nowhere).
Lori with *very cute* boyfriend, explaining her bad day in great gory detail: "...and then my *mother* drops by..."
Boyfriend Matt makes sympathetic noises.
In bed, cuddling, obviously having been doing X-rated things from touseled hair and sated smiles.
Matt: "That better?"
Lori: "Oh, yeah. Thanks. You are just such an angel."
Matt, a little embarassed: "Ah, well..."
Camera cuts to Lori's face, closeup, as her eyes snap open in shock and
"oh-s***!"ness. She yanks herself away with a "WHAT??"
Lori, semi-hysterical: "Matt, why didn't you tell me you were an angel assigned to protect the [somethingorother that would be in a museum or something]??"
Matt, [Mercurian, anthropomorphic Cherub, or six-winged humanoid Seraph?] in shimmery celestial form: "Well, you never asked."
Lori, turning away, in a semi-undertone: "I don't
A bar with enough special effects to make Lucas and Spielberg weep. It is, of course, Shal-Mari.
Lori, in green and horns and a lot of bracelets -- the 'active' one in gold -- talking to a sister (green, horns, bracelets). Both are somewhat scantily clad [as befits Body By Nybbas].
Lori: "Sis, I just don't know what I'm going to do. I'm supposed to steal it, and he's supposed to guard it."
Sister, taking a drink: "Well, do you love him?"
Lori, shaking head blankly: "I don't know. I thought so."
Sister, calmly: "Then you're probably going to
die." Raises her glass for a refill.
Our Lori and a Djinn in Black (human form).
DiB, taking notes like an IRS auditor: "Fraternizing with the enemy, were we?"
Lori: "I didn't know! I figured I had him in thrall, okay?"
DiB: "You should have them sign in blood *before*
you agree to marry them. Or did you forget that little detail?"
Boyfriend Matt, surrounded by a triad of Angels in Black.
Seraph in Black: "And your fiancee may be working for Hell."
Matt: "Look, I only found out yesterday. I thought she was an athiest!"
SiB, taking notes: "This is not going to look good on your record, Mattaniah."
Matt: "Athiests go to Heaven too!"
SiB, fixing him with a steely eye, (background music
goes dead): "But demons don't."
Lori, to Matt: "So, if I can, like, do this *really big favor* for Mom, maybe she'll let me go."
Lilith, to Lori: "Of course, dear. Here, get these things for me." As she hands over a list.
Matt, to Lori, looking at list: "THESE RELICS ARE IN HEAVEN! You can't go there!"
Lori: "Hey, I'll wear sunglasses and a habit, okay?"
Matt, celestial form, sitting on a branch talking to a bunch of biker-angels (ever see a Seraph in a leather jacket? How about a Kyrio?): "If we can get the goods, Lilith lets her go, and she defects to our side."
Angel (of the Wind): "So, you just need to steal
the [something or other funky sounding -- spear of Longinus?], give it to
a Demon Princess, and you get to marry your true love?" He looks around
at his friends. "True love is good."
Lori, with someone behind her in dark robes. He places a hand on her shoulder and she startles.
Figure: "Have we been playing with the other side?"
Matt, with friends & relic, some posh home.
Lilith: "She's been caught by the secret police. She'll be taken to Hell tomorrow, to be executed at sunset. Here's the blueprints of the Game's stronghold."
Matt: "Ah, why are you helping us?"
Lilith, shrugging: "I'm the Princess of Freedom.
And you're going to be my son-in-law, Mattaniah. I like that."

Windy crouched behind something, to Matt: "Hey, love conquers all, right? Hand me another grenade."
