The Gods Are Fickle Creatures
You know this idea we have, of the gods being supernatural (duh!) beings of advanced intellect and emotional intelligence, so far beyond human ken that they are unfathomable to us? That they are the guardians of humanity, sometimes soft, sometimes stern, but fundamentally benevolent? Well, so did the MC, and it’s time to rethink that position.
As it turns out, the gods of the stars in this story are more like the Greek gods of antiquity, endlessly meddling in human affairs for their own amusement/hidden agenda/personal vendettas. Humans are to them like goldfish (that’s the common comparison being made in the story), to toy with as they please. Such are the temptations of omnipotence… Would be a shame if something were to happen to your divine powers, huh, gods?
