SPN Gen Drabble: "Let The Door Now Open" (Lucifer, Lilith, PG)  
Title: Let The Door Now Open
Author: HalfshellVenus
Characters: Lucifer, Lilith (Gen, Drabble)
Rating: PG
Summary: Of all Lucifer's handmaidens, Lilith will pay the highest price.
Author's Notes: Written for an insmallpackages request.
Also for supernatural100, this is "Anticipation."

x-x-x-x-x

In her pure, white disguise, Lilith waited to free him.

Lucifer watched from the dark fortress of his realm as each moment in the earthly drama brought him closer to unleashing the battle within.

Humans were weak—he'd always said so. He'd just never imagined their weakness would ultimately restore his power to eradicate God's folly, once and for all.

He listened as Lilith wove her circle—in words now, with blood soon to follow.

She'd been his handmaiden, lover, confidante, and hope.

Her final sacrifice would place her beyond his touch, forever transfiguring both her essence and his fate.

Nicely done. Your use of language and choice of words felt very precise and very 'Lucifer'.

Thank you! His is a POV I certainly haven't written before, so this was an interesting fic request to fulfill. :)

oh, pretty. ♥ my favorite line is the second to last.

Thank you so much for writing my wish!

Yay! I'm so glad you liked it. I hadn't thought about Lucifer's potential relationship with Lilith until I came across your wish, but given what she made possible for him... she must have been a very faithful servant and he might have had much more than a passing relationship with her.

Thanks so much for putting this idea out there-- I hope I did it justice for you. :)

That's exactly the kind of thing I like to hear!

The way that scene in 4x22 unfolded, it was really interesting to see it from Lucifer's perspective (the flip side). It was the beginning of everything for him, and Lilith and Ruby made it possible.

Hmm. Nice. Very good good for Lucifer. It's always good to see more from his perspective - especially when it's done well :D

Thank you!

He turned out to be a much more interesting-- more complex-- character than I would have expected from network television, and it was fascinating to try out his POV, I must say.

Thanks for reading and commenting!
