I'm in the mood to make a really big post that's a lot more pleasant than the last one. However, I'm also not in the mood to *write* a really big post, I'm in the mood to slam the "post" button and go work on TECNTUGE. (pronounced Tek'n'Tooj, stands for The Engine Currently Named "The Unnamed Game Engine". this name will change, probably often.)

So I'll paste in a story. Like my game engine, it is unnamed. However, it's the only story I've ever written that takes place in Hell, so I will refer to it as "the story that takes place in Hell." I wrote this a few days ago and didn't get around to posting it.

Comments are welcome . . .

--------------------

Once there was a young man who died and went to Hell.
When he got there, a demon was waiting for him.
"For your sins, you will stay here for a thousand years," the demon said.
The young man nodded.

One day a woman arrived in Hell.
"What are you here for?" the young man asked.
"I wasted my life, and realized it too late."
The young man nodded.

Later, he spoke to the demon.
"I want that woman to go to Heaven. She has done nothing wrong."
"Oh, you do? And who will carry her punishment?"
"I will."
And the woman went to Heaven.

One day an old man arrived in Hell.
"What are you here for?" the young man asked.
"My family wasted their money caring for me, and I did nothing to stop them."
"Do you regret it?"
"Yes."
The young man nodded.

Later, he spoke to the demon.
"I want that man to go to Heaven. He has done nothing wrong."
"And will you carry his punishment as well?"
"I will."
And the old man went to Heaven.

One day a child arrived in Hell.
"What are you here for?" the young man asked.
"My mother died during birth."
The young man nodded.

Later, he spoke to the demon.
"I want that child to go to Heaven. He has done nothing wrong."
"Oh, another one?" the demon sneered. "What are you trying to get out of this? Don't you realize that nothing you do now can shorten your punishment? You're just making it longer."
The young man nodded. "I know."
"So I suppose you'll take the child's punishment also?"
"I will."
And the child went to Heaven.

One day an angel arrived in Hell.
"What are you here for?" the young man asked.
"I am here to take you to Heaven. You have shown yourself to be a good person."
The young man took a step towards the angel, then stopped.
"If I go to Heaven, who will help the innocent people?"
The angel nodded, and left.
