Parasha: Lucifer, July 18th reading

And here we start the actual Lucifer series itself. Woo!

"I would do nothing to compromise Lucifer." Riiiight. Anyone who believes that, raise your hand?

Mazikeen's way of speech is... understandable, but freaking annoying I'll admit, when you're trying to immerse yourself in the story.

A pretty good introduction to the Basanos, and between the story title, Lucifer's last words, and the images, it's pretty easy to see where this is going, at least in part!

"Bent" huh? I guess that's a different way of saying "not straight," and a more polite one at least! And anyone think the bit about a tit fixation is a bit of lampshade-hanging, given our introductory image of Jill?

"queasily fascinating..." that's one thing I like about Carey, he's good at putting even the simplest words together in pretty evocative ways. Although some of his foreshadowing isn't exactly the most subtle. (Like, say, with Karl and his little crew.)

As a small aside, I can't read this introductory chapter, without That Song starting to go through my head. "Willkommen, beinvenue, welcome...."

*cough* sorry.

Anyhow... quite an ending, eh? Should be... interesting. Hehhehheh.

The rest of the schedule.
