Satan exclusively uses the cat emojis, not just because he likes them but also because Lucifer hates them:
Lucifer: use regular emojis or none at all
An interesting choice for Lucifer and for the first song. I think when it first came out people were super thrown off by how it really upended their expectations and so it really made people write it off as bad.
Listening to it right now after listening to all the other songs and all the audio dramas, I think it’s actually pretty in character for him. It’s kind of hard to explain, but it seems to me like it’s very much still about his duties and what’s going on in his mind and how Mc fits into that world, which is very Lucifer. I mean, he probably hasn’t really had anything good to divert his attention from work the whole time he’s been in the Devildom besides music (going off of his “Piano Timbre for You” Devilgram). It just feels like anything else would just remind him of work or be some weird problem his brothers created. Then, Mc comes along and throws his feelings into a tizzy, so the very unLucifer-like music probably results from this upheaval of his emotions. The lyrics are directly on point though. The lyrics just drive home the fact to me that he really doesn’t know how to process the fact he’s fallen as hard as he has for Mc. Possessive and prideful but also open and revealing. There’s also a lot of discourse we could add in about Arcadia and what that actually is, but I don’t know enough about it. If you want more info about it, head on over to @thalfox ‘a page :) She’s got great character analysis and discourse happening over on her page :)
I must admit, the song has grown on me a lot from when it was first released. Is it my favorite? Not by a long shot. I do think it’s fun to listen to and a good insight into his character and his feelings.
Okay, so this song slaps!
It’s so Mammon. The rapping was a perfect choice for him and the lyrics are so freaking cute! They’re exactly how he feels and what’s going on his head. As straightforward as he can get them, but still extremely Mammon. If anyone was wondering who Mammon is and how he feels about Mc, I would just have them listen to this song with the lyrics. I also ADORE the music. Mostly this fast paced clubbing music people use to just get lost in, which is very Mammon, but with these almost soft breaks, like he’s just had a new realization about his feelings and then the beat comes back even stronger like he’s trying to embrace those feelings because they just got stronger.
Fantastic characterization and just a really great song overall.
So, I adore this song way more than I should or thought I would. I have a bit of a strange relationship with Levi personally, and this song actually kinda made me simp for him so…
Again, the music is on point, because of course Levi would do a song that sounds like an anime opening. The video game sounds aren’t distracting to the song and add a lot. The spoken parts *chefs kiss*. The lyrics are cute and earnest, and just extremely in character. I also think his audio drama is my favorite.
Ruri-chan would be proud Levi
Okay, now that I’ve gotten that out of my system a bit, let’s begin.
I absolutely adore this song (just like him 😏). I cried when the teaser came out because I was so happy they went instrumental and a soft piano at that. I know a lot of people were hoping for heavy metal or at least rock, but HE’S SO MUCH MORE THAN HIS WRATH! Yes, he was born from it but he’s worked so hard to make himself more than it and not allow it to control his every action. The choice to go so soft and give him a ballad just encompassed what I see in him. Yes, he’s angry but he has such a capacity to love and be soft 🥺 I also cried when I heard how well he sings. You can’t really autotune when your only instrument is the piano (at least not like the other songs) so I was relieved when it turned out he has a good singing voice (I want to point out I’m not coming at any of the VAs because of their singing voice. The only one that sung professionally before this was Ayme so I’m super proud of how well they all did 😊). I also cried when I first heard the song and many times since. I like to think it’s just the on point characterization and not just that I’m an emotional wreck and completely obsessed with him 😬
The lyrics are just perfect for him. Yes, there’s talk about how much he reads and mentions of cats, but there’s an underlying sadness and understanding I don’t see in the other songs. Obviously he loves Mc (which he doesn’t even recognize at first as love 😭😭😭😭) and often feels unworthy of their love (yeah a lot of the brothers feel that way shhhhhhhhh). They’re one of the first beings he’s met who accept him for who he is, problems and all. He’s probably the only brother that spends an extended period of time with mortal creaters (cats) in a way that’s not… manipulative (as in corruptive or from a pact) and he thinks… a lot so he probably recognizes Mc is mortal more often than the other brothers, which shows in the lyrics. He just doesn’t want them to leave him but knows it’s going to happen eventually, and sooner than he could ever be ready for. He’ll have to continue on without them or their love when he’s just found it. (Oh look at that. Now I’m sobbing at 4:30 in the morning)
P.S. If Lucifer wants good reason why Satan wouldn’t like him, he just needs to listen to the audio drama. Intentionally spoiling a book for others is just mean and pretty evil (yeah yeah demons yadda yadda yadda)
Gorgeous all the way around.
Why hello Asmo. What do we have here?
I did not like this song from any of the teasers. It just… I didn’t like it. That being said, I still listened to it when it came out, and I’m very glad I did!
I love the kind of lounge vibe during the verses that allow him to showcase his voice, and then the pop influence right before the chorus just to blend the two for the chorus. Very Asmo and well done. Ayme’s voice is on great display and Asmo woukd definitely sing this to Mc.
The lyrics probably could’ve been more… sensual since he’s the Avatar of Lust but Solamre has toned down the lust aspect of him a lot so 🤷♀️ They’re still very Asmo though
Nice song overall
Okay, so this will be my first time reading the lyrics because this one was my least favorite song so here we go.
Okay, so after reading them it’s… better. I could be misinterpreting, but it does seem to talk about his survivor’s guilt a bit and how he’s been “empty” in more ways than one, which I do wish would be mentioned more in game so that’s nice. It doesn’t talk a whole lot about Mc but when it does it’s almost off hand like Beel has already decided they’re going to be around for forever, which is just like him.
I just… still can’t get behind it though. I’m glad his singing voice is different than his in game voice, but the weird wailing guitar rift is 😬 and the lyrics still leave a lot to be desired. Can anyone enlighten me as to what these mean
“Question, increase, illusion, meditation, give me something
A and V, a set of poems give me everything” (lyrics pulled from the Obey Me wiki since we don’t have official translations from Solmare)
Unfortunately, it’s not like Arcadia where listening to it more makes it better. When I listen to all the brother’s songs all together, I usually end up skipping it fairly early in.
I appreciate the attempt but it just didn’t do it for me. Maybe if the others hadn’t been so on point, I would’ve enjoyed it more. Sorry Beel 😥
This song is such a vibe. I had a playlist in college when I took my pottery class to get me in the zone, and this song would definitely fit in there.
The half rap half sung chorus is so Belphie. The “well, I kinda wanna sing but not totally” is just great. Then, he just pulls out this actually really great singing for the chorus, but in his sweet little voice 😳 I know it’s higher than his normal voice, but it fits the song and character better than when Lucifer did it. That could be the combination of the rap in his normal voice and then singing for the chorus.
The lyrics are again, very on point. Just the want to be near Mc all the time but not being able to say it. Why must he be such a tsundre and brat all the time?
Also, that freaking cover art?
Totally adorable and sweet
Diavolo outright refused to come home and I got 2 of Lucifer
I’m sure he’s trying to tell me something but I’m stupid so imma keep on trying to get my mansus
I am very appreciative of this tho💕
Lucifer and Diavolo UR+Animation
I have an odd nostalgia for the early quarantine Obey Me fandom. Back when we only had one season and the fandom was so active
I wonder if pacts could represent power. I mean obviously they do, but they’re size? Like obviously nowadays a big dick is seen as making of a ‘good’ man. Back in the day, Greek statues like the infamous David, men where depicted with small dicjs because that meant they where smart. And that was considered a 'good’ man so I wonder if the smaller the pact mark size, the more powerful the demon? Idk
Thinking about writing a kinda like short story or rather long one shot because I feel like they didn’t expand on anyone’s emotions properly after what happened in lesson 16. I haven’t written for anything properly in a couple years but like,,,, Obey Me did a crap job with the whole Lilith thing AND the brothers along with MCs emotions.
I want to write about the MC, and Belphegor actually talking and the forgiveness of what he did actually making sense and be shown. I want to show that the revelation of you being a descendant of human Lilith didn’t just affect Belphegor, you cannot tell me that the other brothers (minus Satan probably) didn’t start acting differently around MC after the learned the truth. The MC shouldn’t have just been a tool to fix the brothers relationship with each other and not even have the option to have emotions.
I love Obey Me but I didn’t like the way the story went once the whole Belphegor arrested and different timeline thing happen to the end of season 1. Plus they had time to expand on those emotions and actually give the characters a lot of depth but they decided to have Diavolo have a birthday????
It’s been a while since I read those lessons but these are just a few thoughts I’ve been pondering.
Oh my…it appears as though…I have rolled out of my cave to deliver another chapter
Please enjoy and I swear I’ll do better next time💕
They’re brothers after all
I see everyone is cancelling a blog for transphobia. Im a gay trans man who shes commented posts on but you know what i didn’t do.
Because shes a fucking minor
Transphobia is everywhere in this fandom and it really boosted during the dame event. Trans people said to stop calling guys girls for crossdressing and were ignored despite that being transmisogynistic.
I was a like this person as a kid. Brainwashed by religion. But if people taught me rather than hated me and cancelled and bullied me, maybe things wouldve changed.
Bullying and cancelling causes depression in kids. Kids who don’t fucking know better. Go ahead and unfollow her but don’t be an asshole and publicly hate on her.
At least once a month Asmo will have an identity crisis and attempt to change up he entire aesthetic
This is how I imagine it going
Obey me but instead of the cold and calculating character that is Lucifer this is who we get
Building off my other post Levi likes to use the personalities of other characters because it makes him feel less yucky as a person.
When he confesses to you he uses the persona of his favourite shoujo anime protagonist because it’s the only way he can gather the courage to tell you how he feels.
The thought of that makes me wanna cry it’s such an adorable idea
I believe that Levi puts the persona of his favourite anime villain on whenever he interrogating someone and it’s the only thing that keeps me going nowadays.
It doesn’t even have to be a villain he just adapts to the personality of his favourite chatracter at any given time and rolls with it. It’s can be terrifying sometimes for the victims unless they know who he’s pretending to be.
They don’t usually last long if they do, his embarrassment is off the charts and it’s the only way he thinks he can get out of that situation, much to Lucifer’s dissatisfaction.
A request from last year and now it’s the season for it-
Mammon got his own little Valentine story.
Star crossed Lovers
Fucked around with a new app

Not me being sad because I didn’t get smooches in this valentines event - FROM ANYONE NOT EVEN THE GHOST!
This is solomare telling me I’m truly alone, I can feel it my bones
