%%* TheAntichrist

%%* LightIsNotGood

to:

%%* LightIsNotGood* LightIsNotGood: Lampshaded, in that the authors think that Lucifer means "iron light" instead of "lightbringer" in Latin.

Added DiffLines:

* Chickification: Related to the above. Chloe returns as a "Glorified" in the last book of the series, but the process seems to have dulled her drive, if not her skills, considerably.


* DisneyDeath: Were only dead for 3 1/2 days before they were resurrected.
