Quote:
I have seen a world torn asunder and histories consigned to ashes.

I have seen Kings crowned thrice over and Queens uniting empires.

Gods I have witnessed walking the bare earth of the mortal realm and Avatars hewn down to the dirt.

I joined the mad folly of an alliance forged in terrible desperation and watched it thrown to the eight winds for petty jealousy and ludicrous ambition.

Blade to blade I battled the servants of Armageddon; losses I suffered, friends I buried.

Victories I clawed from the closing jaws of utter defeat, lives I snatched from the waves and escapes I architected for those who would live free.

I was fortunate enough to stand beside the greatest heroes of any age and aid their battle as best I could.

Beneath stolen boughs I planned to raise a laughing family beyond the end of times.

I was betrayed.

I was a betrayer.

The woodlands are burnt, the arks of my people drowned, the land to plant and hunt annihilated.

Their very souls cast throughout the multitude of universes to drift alone.

As I have drifted alone.

I brought the Spear of Death forth to the world and with my love turned it upon myself.

For that folly I float disembodied, disenfranchised, unremembered, unremarkable.

I have been very, very foolish.

With but a laugh and a dance I sought to defeat Destiny.

I failed.

But I am not finished.

I refuse to be finished.

I hear the distant beats of distant hearts; beats so familiar they hum through my consciousness and I feel for the first time in eons curiosity bubble within me.

I suppose that once more I shall plan something very foolish.

For that is who I am.

I am The Fool and I am coming.


Soon he rises.
Soon the Zero Hour.

I'll miss your writing.
