I can't believe how fast I did this. It took like 1/16 of the time they normally take. I guess it's just because I've been thinking of how I wanted this one to be done for so long. Let me know if you like it, hate it, whatever! Feel free to make any suggestions also!
Thank you to :iconemerald-depths: Emerald-Depths for the wonderful stock used to create this!

GLUTTONY: Derived from the Latin gluttire, meaning to gulp down or swallow, gluttony (Latin, gula) is the over-indulgence and over-consumption of anything to the point of waste. Medieval church leaders took a more expansive view of also including an obsessive anticipation of meals and the constant eating of delicacies and excessively costly foods. There are as many six ways to commit gluttony, including:

Praepropere - eating too soon.
Laute - eating too expensively.
Nimis - eating too much.
Ardenter - eating too eagerly.
Studiose - eating too daintily.
Forente - eating wildly.

BEELZEBUB: THE DEMON OF GLUTTONY

Beelzebub, literally means "Lord of the Flies" which is a Semitic deity worshipped in the Philistine city of Ekron. In later Christian and Biblical sources he appears as a demon and is named of one of the seven princes of Hell. Beelzebub is commonly described as placed high in Hell's hierarchy and is the chief lieutenant of Lucifer, the Emperor of Hell. He presides over the Order of the Fly. Beelzebub has among the three most prominent fallen angels, the other two being Lucifer and Leviathan. Beelzebub is the second-ranking of the many fallen angels, with Lucifer the First.

i just picture the look on my cat's face when she realized the feeder just spit out her meal. it's got the exact same kind of focus and obsessive feel.
