Are you looking for the story titled Heavenly Yard?

The Heavenly Yard[note 1], also known as Heaven[note 2], Sukhavati[note 3], or simply the moon, was the afterlife of the Third Period and the planet's moon. An ended world located high above the Third Period, the sun god began cultivating the dead earth and repurposed it as an afterlife for the souls of the dead in the Evillious universe.

HistoryEdit

The Heavenly Yard was once a world filled with vegetation; sometime later the world ended, its soil becoming rotten, and the world became little more than a moon to the Third Period below.[1] During this time, after arriving to the Third Period to populate it with humans, the crew of the Climb One established a research facility on the ended world.

After becoming the Third Period's "sun god", Sickle removed most of his colleagues' remaining technology, including the research facility, and put it in the Grave Yard.[2] With the freed space, he began cultivating the deadened earth and grew golden rice fields. Around BT 528, Sickle dubbed the planet as the "Heavenly Yard" and arranged for all human souls to be sent there following their deaths.[1]

Over the centuries, countless human souls came to the Heavenly Yard, residing in the Gardens of Champs-Élysées.[3] Down below, several human civilizations worshiped this afterlife in their respective religions.[4] Since the creation of the vessels of sin in EC 014, souls that contracted with any of the Demons of Sin became unable to enter the Heavenly Yard.[5] After the Third Period's destruction and subsequent merge with the Hellish Yard in EC 999, the human souls residing in the Heavenly Yard were pulled back to the ground world.[3]

Before and after becoming an afterlife, the Heavenly Yard was capable of sustaining vegetation when properly cultivated, including rice and other wilderness. As the afterlife of the Third Period, the moon was capable of populating the countless souls who had died over the numerous centuries.[1] However, contractors to Demons of Sin were barred entry from the Heavenly Yard;[5] similarly, the light of the yard burned the flesh of the living, limiting only deceased souls or supernatural entities like gods to walk upon it.[7] The Heavenly Yard was outfitted with a Black Box with an Akashic Recorder to record the spirit data of every soul that entered it.[8]
