Gabriel's Shadow

A personal theory of mine is that each human walking the Earth in flesh has a pair of hypothetical wings of their very own, much the way an angel or a fairy would. We are born with no memory of what our personal pair of wings looks like or what properties they may imbue us with, and it is our purpose in life to find out.

A person becomes aware of his or her wings in a number of ways. He can find himself... or find his calling in life. He can discover what it is he truly believes in. His eyes can open and show him for the first time what has always been in shadow. One can find one's wings on his own... or with the help of another. It doesn't matter how the thing is accomplished, but it must be done if we are ever to leave terra and fly. This community is a project born of that concept.

There aren't many, but a few ground rules are always necessary nevertheless.
