There’s a way to become a god in the fictional way, but to get it is fairly…weird. In fact it is pretty weird and almost down right shady, but in the end you gain divine powers and become a god.
Yet because you obtain your own level of godhood, you are unable to handle it. Never mind that you had to do something gross or weird or shady to get it.
My question to you all: Do you have something like that in your story OR know of another story that has something like that?
The story is by another person and it doesn’t have to be novels neither. It can be video games, television series, movies, comics, anime, manga, cartoon, and etc.
In Jiord and the Asakala Voyage, mortals with either high or low mana can consume the blood and flesh of divine beings. Depending on the deity, a mortal will gain their powers, abilities, and personality to blend in with their own.
Thoughts and feelings?
Do you have something of your very own or know of anything else where?
The only story I know of that deals with a mortal gaining godhood is the god of war games, and Kratos becomes a god basically by killing all the other gods. So you could say that’s shady, but not weird.
As for my own stories, the closest I have is Alma and Errol thinking they are gods, but in reality they aren’t. They just think they’re better than humans because they are ‘superior’ because of their genetics and the machine parts of them, as well as thinking they have a moral high ground because they didn’t start the war and have justified reasons for wanting to destroy mankind. So again, shady, but not necessarily weird. And they aren’t actual gods. They just have god complexes that feed off of each other.
i’m christian and i don’t fuck around with calling other things ‘god’ or ‘godlike’. don’t really feel like being smited over it and that’s not the avenue my writing tends to take anyways. i lean much more heavily towards grinding characters down lol
Isaac shattered the boundaries between reality and the liminal space of the boundary between existence and non-existence, allowing more non-concrete concepts to manifest in the real world, just to bring peace to a realm in conflict and revive someone he cared about. Also therefore overtook the role of the deity Yocha.
