Letter "D" - Devil May Care Not

***Here's a taste of Drakar

Souls.  That is what I deal in.  I do not care for the joys of Midterra, that land pathetic humans call Earth.  They walk about, day in, day out, damning their enemies to hell.  In turn, their enemies damn them to hell right back.  Personally, I don't discriminate.  All of you are welcome to fill my darkest pits.  Especially, if you work for the Other Side.

Don't make me puke with your self-righteousness.

I'm sure I can make a deal with you, too.  How else do you think I have a legion of Harvestors doing my bidding, sending my hellhounds to round up souls?  Most of them were you.  Just.  Like.  You.  I see you, sitting perfectly unaware of how close you are to my grasp.  Don't worry, I won't have to come to you.  You'll come to me, Drakar of the Underworld.  The most resistant ones always do.  They turn out to be my best Harvestors, just like Basil.
*****

Anybody else fell like punching Drakar in the face?  Or is it just me?

He's a touch of evil, isn't he? I wouldn't want to be in his domain.

I love it! These are my kind of character snippets :) Completely enjoying your theme for this challenger Angela.

Isis Rushdan said...

Enjoyed the way you tied the challenge to one of your characters.

Reminds me of C. S. Lewis' "The Screwtape Letters". Good job. :)

Angela Brown said...

Neither would I. When I wrote this then read it again, I had to stop for a moment because I found myself really not liking this character lol!!!

Angela Brown said...

Thanks, Raelyn. I'm sort of working through this as a sort of daily soap opera. I still don't know how this will end, haven't finished all the letters yet lol!!1

Angela Brown said...

Thanks, Isis. Glad you enjoyed the post :-)

Angela Brown said...

*blushing*

A positive comparison to something written by one of my fave authors has that effect on my lol!!

Oh, Drakar is great! There's a novel in this fellow, Angela. A novel, I tell you! :)

Clarissa Draper said...

Yeah, I do. Great excerpt.

Candilynn Fite said...

Wow, you can tell you're having quite a bit of fun with this challenge, Angela!

Am I awful that I like him??? It's my bad boy attraction thingy. Sorry!! Oh yeah, I had a thing for bad boys, in my youth that is!

Angela Brown said...

Thanks Nadja. He's definitely a strong character, formiddable.

Angela Brown said...

Drakar is something special and very creepy :-)

Angela Brown said...

Thanks, Angela. It was interesting putting him out here, hearing his evil sort of curl from each word.

Angela Brown said...

I'd say let's me and you take him, but I have a bad feeling it would need to be more than us lol!!!

Angela Brown said...

LOL!! Not awful that you like him. He's definitely got the bad boy thing going for him :-)

KarenG said...

I definitely want to punch him in the face.

Angela Brown said...

Here, here, Karen. As far as I'm concerned, he so deserves it :-)

Lady Gwen said...

OMG Angela, you scared me! Especially with "Just. Like. You." Well done!

MAJK said...

He's a bit of a donkey's rear. Yeah, I'd love to knock him a good one but I have this sneaking suspicion that is exactly the response he is aiming for.

I can think of something worse than a punch in the face for Drakar.
