"Witness my love." - Adara
It is seldom told, as but a tale to frighten children, still nevertheless, that death shares the faces of two acting with the will of one; that they never drop their marks, lest the coldest winds frost over the most temperate districts, and the sun falls to the eastern extreme for a whole fortnight.
However, as with all fables for the young, and pure: hope.
"But remember, death is always fair. They do not hunt the innocent." Or as some would rather say, "Death is always harboured, never due. Kindness shifts their keen eyes."
Lies. All of them. Blatant, foul, and treacherous lies.
In death lies the sincerest silence; the most melodic pause; an endearing peace. To bring about happiness is to cease all suffering, and to enforce universal peace is to bring about its end. None shall retort the perfection: everyone, finally able to truly rest forevermore. The death I give is not fair, for it comes unto those unwilling; the death I give is due, not harboured, as none shifts my gaze; the death I give is out of love.
My love, one akin to the unadulterated love anyone would have for their creations. I, as the creator of this world, will reignite the phase of cataclysm, and rest the restless.
And this time, no mere sham, or faker will stop me.
There are but an endless variety of tales which attempt to validly depict the beginning of both time, and the concept of being; all ranging from sickly similar, to contrasting in outrageous proportions, though none can argue that it can't be truthfully summed that most encompass a godly figure of unfathomable power: one entity whose bosom came to be the womb of the universe, and their will the seed.
One specific variation of a certain tale speaks of a goddess, whom in the absence of others was wracked with dreading misery, until the moment she were to shed her first tears. The tears proceeded to form the foundation of life, and her plea the conductor of the orchestral exhibit, that was the origination of the universe's form.
Following the flourishing of new life, the goddess was said to have only experienced joy, in both their beginnings, and ends of novel relations. The goddess was no longer alone, and thus with all her inhuman heart, she endeared everything but herself, to the point others would consider the affection an ailing infatuation: unhealthy, and bizarre.
But never was it too long, before the goddess would eventually tire. And with the tiring of the goddess, came the decay, and rot. The old had to be wiped, for the limitations of space, and the lights would dim, only to shine again, later.
The name of the goddess is even debated amongst the wary few, but some refer to her as Mother Adara, the bearer of the world, the adherent of all inceptions, and the adherent of calamity.
