What do you think about this genre? I know that most (if not all) pieces of it are extremely theologically ignorant or even blasphemous but I particularly like this kind of literature.

Why do posters that claim to have me blocked keep sending me pms and responding to my posts? That makes no sense.

Don't know of or read the stuff, but the Diablo series' Tyrael rocks with that hood and those ethereal tentacled wings.  I just wish he'd stop mentioning 'the Light' so much.  It's annoying.

The only angel fantasy I know about is John Milton's Paradise Lost, one of the most beautiful things written in the English language. I highly recommend it.
