Have you sinned lately? Done something wrong that you feel bad about? Want to make up for it, put it behind you once and for all, and rid yourself of that nagging sense of guilt?
NOW'S YOUR CHANCE!
Here's how it works:
Confess: Tell us what you did wrong. Don't make excuses or try to rationalize it away - just own up to your mistake, honestly and unconditionally. It doesn't have to be some huge bombshell, like you once shot a man Underground just to watch him die. But the fact is, we all make mistakes. Whatever you did or whoever you wronged, let it out. Shikieiki is here to help.
Do your penance: By posting your sin in this thread, you agree to receive and faithfully perform your penance in a timely fashion. Don't worry - it won't be anything degrading or humiliating. In fact, it will be something fun for you, and entertaining for the rest of us. All that is asked is that you do your penance quickly, and don't chicken out. Besides, you wouldn't confess your sin unless you were willing to atone for it, would you?
Receive absolution: If you have successfully completed your penance, Shikieiki will officially absolve you of your sin. From that moment forward, you can then release yourself of your guilt and shame, and move forward into a bright future.
So then, you filthy sinner, tell the Yama of Paradise of your sins, and begin your path to salvation!
Alright, I'll bite. Yesterday I was feeling tired, so I did tasks at my job slowly. I feel bad for what I did because it meant more work for my co-worker, who was the only one on the job for a while after my shift ended. I feel I was needlessly slothful. So what would my penance be?
Today I've had fun pretending to be stupid by asking someone what they've meant over and over again. It looks dumb from third person perspective, but infuriates people to no end if you do it just right. I've probably mentally destroyed them. I'll do it again sometime later.
Ah, I'm not repenting by the way. That's because there is no "sin" to absolve. My provocations that caused an upset in another person's foundations will ultimately make them stronger as they realize their errors. Only a third-rate yama would affirm or deny actions based on their initial perceptions. Such wonders of the world should best remain as statues.

How revolting. Clearly, your diet is lacking and in need of some serious improvement. For your penance, you are to make a salad and eat it, posting Before and After photos of the salad (yes, the second photo will clearly be of an empty bowl and not the salad itself.)
Somehow the Yama is not surprised. For your penance, you must create a work of fanfiction praising the spiritual purity of Yours Truly. Feel free to make it a poem, haiku or any short fic of any amount of words. But it must convey purity of some kind.
>>25322 The sloth, a cunning beast that wages a long war of attrition. It plays the fool, being very slow, and seemingly stupid, but it all has a purpose. Sloths have very slow metabolism, allowing them to survive when most animals would starve, and they use their own slowness as a defense: they move so slow that algae grow on them, giving them naturally occurring camouflage, a most ingenious tactic. Many underestimate the sloth, but they would not do so, if they were on the opposite end of a sloth's claws. Thus, they are the greatest mammal alive, for they understand how to play the long game.
