all emptiness and infinite;

Angels of the Silences

is an alternate universe of the bracketverse. since the bracketverse is a shared universe (with [livejournal.com profile] marika_kailaya) and al is terrible at sharing, AotS is al's sandbox. it is named for the intersection of two counting crows songs, and is geometric. that is, angels of the silences is arranged as a horizontal, left-to-right line that takes 90-degree turns. each turn defines a storyline. each storyline also has one story that al uses as a base of reference for why it is not the same as any other turn; instead of making you go through all the passover questions with it this story will be indicated by bold and italics because we don't understand overkill here.

each turn is named for a song. therefore, song citations:

90 degrees: A Nervous Tic Motion Of The Head To The Left

we had survived to
turn on the History Channel,
and ask our esteemed panel
Why are we alive?
and here's how they replied:
you're what happens when two substances collide
and by all accounts you really should have died
there's still damage to do (Cosma Noline, Michael Kite)
Plenipotentiary (Ciel Noline, Cosma Noline, Theresa Kyle, Arianna)
no 'i don't know', no 'maybe so' (Ciel Noline)
in the future, the past is just the past (Cosma Noline)

they won't be stopped (Arcturus, January Salt, Cosma Noline)
gold light (Cosma Noline, January Salt, Theresa Kyle, Arcturus)

180 degrees: Scene Of The Crime

and let's unveil your greatest alibi
as I watch you return to the scene of the crime
let's ask all your witnesses that will swear
that you were somewhere else that night
and I will stay awake and mine eyes won't rest
I'll seek out the clues, may my efforts be blessed
I'll follow the trails 'till I find all the proof that I need
to relieve this ache from my chest

every battle heads toward surrender on both sides (Arcturus, Sam Jones, Carl Nora, January Salt)
every moment leads toward its own sad end
all roads lead toward the same blocked intersection

There Are Bodies On The Ceiling And They're Fluttering Their Wings (Arcturus, Sam Jones, Catherine Jones, Tabot Funk, January Salt, Jordan Hale, Theresa Kyle, Ciel Noline, Ariadne Shaw, Isaac Corwin, the Miriam)

there is an ebbing and flowing stream (January Salt, Ciel Noline)

and it's the sum of man (Tabot Funk)

270 degrees: High Hawk Season

I saw the streets fill up with people that I knew
peope who looked like you
rise if you're sleeping, stay awake
we are young supernovas and the heat's about to break
drift through the streets, walk between the cars
newborn sons and daughters, spat forth from distant stars
the summer will reveal itself to those whose hearts are true
and to the faithless few
when we arrive alive at last (Arianna Castor, David Smith, Isaac Corwin, Margaret Lowes, Tania Clark, the Miriam, Ciel Noline, Tulio Huitrón, Zeke Cartman, Zöe Cartman, Marc Taylor, Ariadne Shaw, Cosma Noline, January Salt, Theresa Kyle, Arcturus, Catherine Jones)

the loss of a lonely man never makes much of a sound (January Salt, Ciel Noline, Cosma Noline, Arcturus)

and if you ever make it to ten you won't make it again (January Salt, Cosma Noline)
try to leave no traces (Ciel Noline, the blue ghost)
Chondrilla juncea (Ciel Noline, the blue ghost, Cosma Noline, Tabot Funk, Iene, Luca Elton)
