First off, a huge thank you to all of you who read this blog and make it such an awesome place to post my work. I seriously would not be here without you. I will be making an actual celebratory caption to commemorate this milestone once I have the time (hopefully in the next couple of days) but I didn't want to wait to express my gratitiude to all of you lovely readers.
Now on a completely unrelated note, let's talk about Seven.
I've been getting a lot of formspring requests and comments about Seven recently, and I've realized there are a couple of things I need to clear up. But first, here's a quick run through of the formspring:
Where is LUST? I cannot find her anywhere!
Anger hates being called Wrath, it pisses her off. By the way, where's Lust?
There were 8 Deadly Sins originally, of which Vainglory was the 8th, so will you include her, Rauk?
I've mentioned this several times before, but hopefully this will be the last.
I have NOT written all of Seven yet.
Currently posted are Envy, Wrath, Sloth, and Gluttony.
Still to come are Pride, Greed, and Lust.
So the reason you can't find Lust is because I have not written her yet. But don't lose hope! She will be coming eventually. And should you somehow miss her the first time around I will probably be making another post containing every part of the series, and I'll probably make a permanent page on this blog for it as well. So please have patience dear readers, the best of this series is yet to come.
Onto the next point, Anger vs. Wrath. Anger is an emotion, not a sin. Holding on to that emotion and using it to lash out at others or yourself is. That's why I called her "Wrath" instead of "Anger."
And now for the final point. Yes there originally were more than seven deadly sins. You could make the argument for there being upwards of nine at any one time, but there are actually even more than that depending on the source you use (if you are really curious Wikipedia has a good overview of the history of the deadly sins).
But for the purposes of this series I am using the currently accepted seven under modern Christianity of: Envy, Wrath, Sloth, Gluttony, Pride, Greed, and Lust.
If "insert various sin here" is not on the above list, I'm not including it (although I'm sure it would make a great caption, I just don't have the time).
Okay, I think that covers everything. If I missed anything or if you have another question feel free to leave a comment or throw it in the formspring box and I'll get back to you.
Keep an eye out for a "300 followers" caption in the next couple of days, and thanks again for taking the time to check out my blog.
