INT. HELL LOBBY.
They enter into a small lobby that sort of looks like a one window DMV with no chairs. The lobby is empty except for the CLERK. Anielle, George, and Toci walk towards the clerk but are interupted when a man’s spirit (looks like a normal man but is transparent) pops up from the floor. He goes up to the clerk.
Welcome to Hell! Name please.
Hell? Why am I here?
I can tell you but first I need your
Well, maybe I won’t tell you and
then you gotta send me back!
Let’s see my scheduled deaths today.
The clerk looks at a clipboard.
Ah, you must be Bartholomew Baycity.
You’re here because you robbed a girl
scout, so that’ll be breaking the commandment
against stealing. Plus gluttony since you ate
all her cookies in one weekend.
You can go to Heaven if you apologize!
Whatever. Room 1112749. Bye!
The Spirit Man gets sucked back down.
Oh, livings! What brings you here
A man named Joshua Frederick
was taken captive here by Babelsama
and Madame Fate. We’re here to rescue him.
There’s only three ways you can go down to
Hell. One-if you’re invited by one of our
residences. Two-if you die. And three-if
you go through the tour with one our guides.
Don’t worry, the guides are technically angels-
like me! We choose to work here for the same
reason people choose to be peace officers-to
carry out justice. We live in Heaven though.
Good to know. We’ll do the tour then.
Very well. I’ll send in your guide.
Thanks for dropping by!
A door appears next to the window and out comes Blanche.
Wow, I thought I’d never see you
Blanche! But you’re not dead!
Someone needs to check the Broom
Football Field! Come-no one will harm
you as long as I’m around.
They reluctantly follow her through the door.
INT. LAYER ONE.
The first layer looks like a giant jungle around the edges with a giant field whose grass is half dead. People are running around, terrified.
This is layer one-which punishes crimes
against nature. Their spirits are involved
in a daily hunt where demons chase them
and if they’re caught, they are skinned and
made into the demon’s underwear. This
punishment serves a variety of sins, including
destroying habitats and cruelty to animals.
They see a demon ride across the field on a motorcycle. Blanche leads them down a flight of stairs.
INT. LAYER TWO.
This room looks like a giant movie theatre but again with no seats. People all watch a blank screen.
This is crimes against loved ones. Sinners
here are subjected to watch images they
find truly horrific. The sins here are for
people who do something to harm people
who love them-like child abuse or murdering
a spouse to collect the insurance money.
Octomom’s sex tape! Nooooooo!
Blanche leads them downstairs.
INT. LAYER THREE.
This room appears to be a demented, endless obstacle course.
Layer three is for sins against nations,
where leaders of any sort get punished
for cruelty to their people. It’s also for
citizens who commit treason or war crimes.
This obstacle course includes swimming
through acid and climbing a mountain of
thorns. There are hundreds of traps like this.
Blanche takes them downstairs again.
INT. LAYER FOUR.
This room appears to be a giant, medieval torture chamber. People cry out in pain and agony.
This is punishment for crimes against
humanity. This branch ranges from child
pornography all the way to sociopathic murder.
Blanche takes them downstairs.
INT. LAYER FIVE.
This layer is fire and brimstone. People in the lava try to escape but keep getting impeded by demons.
This is what most humans think of
when they think of Hell. It’s for crimes
against God. Basically, it’s a number of
sins done in the name of God. It includes
a sadistic religious group, perverting
religion to justify genocide, and many more.
Blanche leads them downstairs again.
INT. LAYER SIX.
It appears to be a dark, unkempt hotel hall. It looks cold and bleak.
This is where sinners can take a short
break. It gives them a chance to ask
forgiveness and relive the horrors of
the day. Some people truly end up sorry
and leave. If you want to continue sinning,
you go back to your layer.
Finally! Where does Madame Fate live?
INT. DEMON HALL.
This is the residence of demons. See that
ornate building over there? That’s Lucifer’s
room. He runs this place.
Great. Will you wait here while we
go take care of something?
You are so much more pleasant to
hang around now!
I’m an angel; I’m not going to cause
you any discomfort!
They smile at her and step inside Madame Fate’s room.
