Warning: one instance of non-explicit self-injury in a religious context
Author's Notes: Sparkadia's video for 'Mary' is partly responsible for this. The rest... IDEK. Quasi-Catholic religious End Times IDEK what. This is pretty rough, tbh, and it's only had a quick and dirty revision for spelling/grammar. This was one of those 'you can't go to bed til you've written this down' pieces. I have no idea if this is another universe to play in, or just a one-shot. We'll see.

(How am I the first person to use the colour Xanadu? I'll need a tag for that, thanks, mods, as well as an author tag. If I write in this universe again, I'll request a story tag. But you can leave it for now, if you like.)
