War of Angels

History is told by the victor. The gist is a retelling of the rise of God.

The gist is that there are a bunch of creatures who are Angels, who are all relatively equal. One of them, though, begins telling others that he is the creator of all things, using mostly social tactics and stage magic to appear to be more powerful than the others.

Another, Lucifer, fights back by trying to convince people that it's not true.

At some point Lucifer kicks in and has Yaweh down, and says something like "I don't want to kill. I just needed to show that you were not all powerful" Then Yaweh says something along the lines of "See, I didn't want to kill him, I just convinced him that he didn't want to blacken his soul" or something like that.
