A Papal States AAR
In the eternal glory of heaven...
"You summoned me, O great heavenly Father?"
"Yes, Massimo. I need you to perform a task for me."
"Whatever you want, O wonderful Creater," answered Massimo.
"I want you to go down to Earth."
"Down there?" asked Massimo. "I will do as you O incredible-"
"Massimo, you know what I can't stand?"
Massimo thought for a minute. "Could it be those who blaspheme against the Holy Spirit, O forgiving God."
"No," said God sternly. "It's little brown-nosing angels who act like a bunch of yes-men!"
"Yes, O glorious- Oh, right! No kiss-up stuff. Gotcha God!" said the angel.
"Good," smiled God. "Now, I want you to go down to Earth and meet with the Pope."
"There you will help him guide the people of Christendom in a peaceful and righteous manner. You must help to preach My Word to all people's of the world, and prevent heretics and heathens from overruning the world."
"So I must help spread Your Word and prevent wars among those who follow-"
"Prevent wars, eh?" thought God. "On second thought, you can scratch that last part."
"I guess no-one's perfect," said Massimo. God stared down at him in an overpowering manner. "Uhhh, except for you O vengeful God."
"Good. Now, you are to assist the Popes of Rome for four hundred years-"
"Four hundred years?!?!" exclaimed Massimo the angel. "What did you do lose a bet or something?"
"Well I made a bet with Saint Peter over who would the SuperBowl, and long story short: you must help the Popes of Rome for four hundred years," said God straight out.
"Why couldn't you just make Jesus do it?" grumbled Massimo.
"Massimo, I am Jesus."
"I thought you were God."
"I'm God and Jesus. And the Holy Spirit. The Holy Trinity, remember?" said God.
"Talk about multiple personality," said Massimo under his breath.
"Just get to Rome!"
Massimo jumped back. He was heading off to Rome, to guide the Popes for four hundred years on how they would effectively strengthen and guide Christendom...
I will try to make this a humourous AAR, with a very tiny bit of narrative. I will try to have the vast majority of this AAR in dialogue form.
