Incredibly random question time!
My fanfiction I’m doing for nanowrimo has angels in it. Now, I myself do not read/watch very much fiction of the religious/supernatural genre. So I was wondering if anyone more versed in such things could give me some ideas.
I need to capture, or in some way incapacitate, an angel. The more easily a mortal could do it, the better, although if there are ideas on how a fellow angel could do it (other than, you know, beat the snot out of them with their bare fists) that could be good to know too.
I’ve got an idea already for how I could do it,* but it would be nice to keep my options open. Plus, the more I think about it, the more curious I get, so now I just plain want to know. XD
*I can’t say what it is because of spoilers.
I have no idea what the context is, but I know in Catholic mythos, angels (and demons) cannot actually do anything without some form of permission from the mortal being they are interacting with. So one way could be to express firm denial of an action done to their person. (This probably does not include avoiding being smited.)
In the TV show Supernatural, they used rings of holy fire that was created with the help of holy water, but that may or may not be SPN-specific.
