'Creation Myth' [G] God, Lucifer

Fandom: Supernatural. Or possibly the Bible. Both? Neither?
Rating: G
Author's Notes: Written for the supernatural100 challenge #223: Opportunity
Length: 100 words
Spoilers: None whatsoever.
Author's Notes: This is what happens when I listen to Anais Mithchell's folk-rock opera version of the Orpheus myth, 'Hadestown', and then watch 5x16.
Disclaimer: Actually, I'm pretty sure that neither God nor Lucifer are the property of Kripke. I have as much right to them as he does!

In the beginning was the eternal crystal perfection of God’s love.

Eventually, He withdrew from a piece of the universe. There, earth and water mingled to form mud. Sunlight coaxed fecund wild growth. There was Life. There was Death. There was Man.

There grew a flaw in Heaven’s perfection. His eldest children were jealous of God’s fascination with His newest creation. Morning Star fell, and the flame of that anger melted a domain into roiling chaos.

Above, the serene Yes. Below, the rebellious No.

Man walked the green Earth between. Rose. And fell. And chose. And chose. And chose again.

This is beautiful imagery. Have you seen the movie The Nines, with Ryan Reynolds? I think you might like it.
