Destinye Raines | Lil | 22 | March 3 | Writer

Hi guys! :excited: by CookiemagiK My name is Destinye, but a lot of people call me Lil. I'm considered a student writer, although my focus in college is on education. Recently, I became overwhelmed in an online school, but with my husband's recent decision to focus on his writing again, I decided to take a break until the fall semester and work on my own projects.

This turned into us working on a project together.

I'm focusing on improving my own writing, as well as helping others. I'm big on respectful, yet helpful, critiques. Everyone deserves them! (Unless, of course, you don't want critiques.)

I'm pretty friendly, if I do say so. :heart: Never be afraid to approach me!

How to kill an AngelHow to kill an Angel
To kill an Angel, you must remove its hope, and its love, doing so, will remove its Wings.
To kill an Angel, you must remove its family, and its friends, doing so, will remove its Armor.
To kill an Angel, you must remove its faith, and its compassion, doing so, will remove its Halo.
At this point, you can kill the Angel, it is defenseless..Or, you can show it love, show it care..and you can rebuild it, bring it back to its former glory, its Wings shall grow again, its Armor shall slowly begin to take form again, and its Halo, will slowly begin to show again. However, if you choose to leave it be, and not even have the mercy to kill it, the Angel shall hold hate in its heart, it shall hold sorrow.
A broken Angel, shall replace hope with pessimism, and love with hate..its Wings shall regrow, but they will be black as night, and painful to touch.
A broken Angel, shall replace family with greed, and friends with enemies...its Armor shall return, but now, it shall be as

"...I enjoy the way that it is broken up. "To kill an Angel, you must do A and B, Doing so removes it's.." And then it continues to reflect that a broken Angel will replace what was taken with (fairly) the opposite, as well as what is returned in the place of what the Angel lost. I feel the repetitive nature of this ties it together well, keeping a good flow throughout the piece. I also enjoy that you portray that by taking away everything that makes and Angel, well, an Angel (it's wings, armor, and halo), it basically renders them human. Leaving them in such a state, however, can have three outcomes. I liked how you reflected these three outcomes. One can kill them. Or they can nurture them and they'll go back to their former glory. But these two outcomes are not touched on, even though they outcome of killing them once they're rendered defenseless is basically the title. Instead, you turn the piece towards them becoming a demon..." Read More~
