Notes: Waaaay, way into the future of this story, and I think SWL can read my mind, because that picture fit these two perfectly.

Father Andrew didn’t even bother to brush away the cobwebs as he pushed through the service tunnels underneath the offices of the archdiocese. Damn all those bastards--why did they treat her this way?

Iron chains, and iron collars, and none of it ever set right with him. A creature of Heaven should be a creature free to move in body and spirit--one with full access to their awesome power. But they, with their quaking, imperfect souls could only stand a fraction of her radiance.

Now they had lost their rights to the law, in his eyes. )
