According to the Prophecy

Some say the world will end in fire,

Some say in ice.

They are wrong.

The ancient prophecy foretells it:

On a day of memorial and merry-making,

A deluge will descend upon the delta,

And the fear-stricken faithless will flee.

Of course, they’re only words. But words have a way of twisting, and for a time, they were used to prohibit any and all festivities and frivolity.

Then came the enlightenment, and – knowing better – the words were dismissed and forgotten.

Forgotten, until a day of memorial and merry-making brought with it a deluge.

The faithless fled to the mountains, seeking refuge.

They found what they thought was safety, but only stirred a greater monster – one that would prove to be their undoing.

Stupid ants, that’ll teach you to infest my car. I don’t care if the water drove you higher; this is my territory, and I will defend it.

As it is written, so shall it be.
