<with no morals>


a disscussion of the Great Plan (Armeggedon) between:
Megatron (Voice of God)
Beelzebub (Prince of Hell)
Aziraphale (Angel, part-time rare book dealer)
Crowley (Fallen Angel, who did not so much fall as saunter vaguely downwards)

'I was just asking asking whether it is ineffable as well. I just want to be clear on this point.'
'It doesn't matter!' snapped the Megatron. 'It's the same thing, surely!'
Surely? thought Crowley. They don't actually know. He started to grin like an idiot.
'So, you're not one hundred per cent clear on this?' said Aziraphale.
'It's not given to us to understand the ineffable Plan,' said the Megatron, 'but of course the Great Plan -'
'But the Great Plan can only be a tiny part of the overall ineffalibility,' said Crowley. 'You can't be certain that what's happening right now isn't exactly right, from an ineffable point of view.'
'It izz written!' bellowed Beelzebub.
'But it might be written differently somewhere else.' said Crowley. 'Where you can't read it.'
'In bigger letters,' said Aziraphale.
'Underlined,' Crowley added.
'Twice,' suggested Aziraphale.
'Perhaps this isn't just a test of the world,' said Crowley. 'It might be a test of you people too. hmm?'
'God doesn't play games with His loyal servants,' said the Megatron, but in a worried tone of voice.
'Whooo-eee,' said Crowley. 'Where have you been?'
