Godwit

by MoxMox
All of sudden, as the world looks more and more like a dystopia, creatures that everyone thought were only myths and legends show up all around the world, adding to the global chaos. France isn't an exception to that phenomenon, and a lot is going on in front of unaware eyes as the tensions reach their climax...

Warning: Swearing, blood, probably some gore and disturbing scenes.

The title was supposed to be provisory but I didn't find anything & went with it ^^; but godwits are pretty cute birds, I looked it up and the name had nothing to do with god or being witty, it apparently just means "good creature" (good+wight), or comes from its cries "yarwhelp".
Also there's litterally no symbolism exclusive to the godwit itself besides what almost all water birds have (water-air link, as an example). Something about an animal that didn't get as much attention as ravens or peacocks makes me like them tbh, they are long-legged game birds with no inherent morality stuck to them (like the evil crow or noble eagle tropes), so the reader can only make assumptions based on what godwits in the story do.
In french, we commonly call the Limosa genus "Barge", which is an homophone of the derogatory term "Barje", hyphenation of "Barjot" (an insult akin to "crazy"). Hence why I decided to go with godwit & make an english comic happening in France. Also I learned that "Barge" is also one of those slow flat boats.

This is a bit embarrassing for me, but I recently had a rather jarring experience with a nature documentary that kindly informed me that a "godwit" is an actual species of bird. They don't live in my area and I'm not into birds, so I'd never heard of one. Considering the subject of this comic, I'd figured that it was just some weird term that you made up that would be explained later on in the story. My brain also automatically ID'ed the bird on the cover as a weird hummingbird. Thus, when Sir David Attenborough announced that the glorious "hummingbird" strutting about onscreen was a godwit, it was rather shocking. XP

(Can I just say that "godwit" is a really, really weird name for a bird? I guess that the "booby" isn't much better, but... I'm just gonna go an research the etymology of those two now.)

Thank you !
Hmm... Yes, but angels are wise and it's easy to miss details (especially if you don't look at people in the eyes). However, the mere presence of an angel lowers one's mental guard towards them, so a good clue would be to notice you're telling your life story to a total stranger without being drunk.

Happy Birthday! Oook I love the fact they can take a human form that looks very... well, human. except the eyes. But it looks really cool.
Now my question is do humans know angels can disguise themselves as people?
