"When the angels present themselves, the devils abscond." - Arabic Proverb

When I first saw this, I was understandably annoyed. As well as being a complete untruth, I find it insulting at the very least that the appearance of an angel would make me, or any of my Grigori, leave and allow them the advantage.

But on further consideration, I'm really quite happy for humans to believe this ridiculous notion. If they feel the presence of an angel will protect them from a demon, I'm quite pleased to let them have that false sense of security. Considering how many misguided sheep there are out there who believe they have an angel watching over them, guarding them from harm and from evil, and how wrong they are. Angels do watch, I should know, I was a Watcher once, but that is all they are permitted to do, and then report to their Master on how well -- or not -- His sheep are behaving. It certainly isn't a one angel to one human ratio either. Not that I wish to defend my former brothers, but they really have better things to do.

So if a human thinks he is protected by his very own angel, then it can be an opportunity...and a pleasure to...to shatter his illusions. So, after some thought, I do like this idea. It only helps to work to my, and my brothers', advantage.

If we Sidhe have to put up with the totally erroneous notion that we all have gossamer wings, sparkle with Fairy Dust and look like Tinkerbell from the majority of Humans, then your annoyance at what they think regarding all things Angelic and Demonic does seem rather like you are being granted a favour, my friend.

Now, Faelyn, you are talking to someone who was once a being that is now commonly depicted as a chubby infant with feathered wings that wouldn't lift a fly.

But Azazeal, you told me you were always watching me and guarding me, too. *looks puzzled then shrugs* Oh, well, I am sure you are very busy, aren't you?

Never too busy for you, Joie-lyn. There are those very few that are watched over by either side, but it is a very rare thing. Humans, in general, think we are far too interested in the most mundane people. And remember, Jocelyn, I was talking about humans.
