Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door


“Are you sure this is the right doorway?”

“They said to look for a creepy stone face with a winged helmet.”

“But it’s not even a doorway. This is just a blank wall.”

“This is the Gateway! Have I taught you nothing?”

“I expected it to be bigger.”

Alastor closed his eyes and took a deep breath. “Serax, I brought you on this mission for a reason.”

“Yes, Master,” the little demon hung his head. “Do you get the feeling that face is watching—”


Michael, the archangel, blinked his flaming eyes once and retreated back into the stone.

  1. i liked the use of angels and demons as characters. and glad to know that heaven’s gate is well-guarded. (ok, maybe i shouldn’t be too glad about that, lol) great story

  2. DON’T BLINK!!!!! (See, if you watched Doctor Who you’d get the Weeping Angels reference, but you don’t, so….)

    Did I mention you would LOVE Doctor Who, darling? Incidentally, if I’m commenting here, doesn’t that mean that….. why yes it does.

    These two reminded me of your magical archaeologists from a while back — not that I’m saying these two weren’t great, but the voices read as eerily similar.

    • I know, I KNOW. I’ll get around to the good Doctor eventually. I hear Boston winters drive everyone into hibernation, huddling hopelessly around the hub that is Netflix.

      I was thinking of them when I wrote it, so that could certainly be why. I liked those guys…maybe they’ll make a come back.

  3. I chuckled at the demons thought that the doorway should be bigger. I like the human projection of thought onto supernatural creatures. This was a fun story, especially the zapping. 🙂
