A Consolidated Threat

With each step She took down the stairs, power exuded from Her; cracks of thunder rang and a trail of indented footprints. Simone realized that She needed a new name, something more befitting one of Her stature. Then She smiled.

As soon as She dealt with those plotting and planning against Her downstairs, She’d have four very awe-inspiring names to choose from. Death had a very nice ring to it.

Simone walked out the front door, immediately catching sight of Alec floating in mid-air. She concentrated and then it all came into focus: TheyHe… were outside of space and time. And, indeed, TheyHe… did not fail to impress. Yes, They were indeed one.

The Four Horsemen… The Horseman… The Apocalypse. And He was beautiful, oh so beautiful. He reeked of the promise of death, exuded all the plights of the world as His own.

Simone’s groin quivered for Him. She had never known love, let alone the version that comes at first sight. She couldn’t destroy this; She’d make Him Her king.

    I had to do it, sorry to anyone this throws off. When Howie wrote that the Horsemen were shedding their physical form and shifting to their true nature, an image came to my mind. I disturbing image. And I’m throwing it out there now. If no one writes a sequel soon, I’ll write it and actually discribe what They/He look like.

  • from Howie Amourscow:

    Please, go for it: I love where this could be going!

  • from Alexa ♥:

    I love that the god is infatuated with the “aspects of Nature [that are] woven into the fabric of reality”. Unforseen and awesome.

  • from Crown Me Tarzan, King of Mars:

    So very, very cool. I also had the idea that part of Simone’s process of becoming a god was that she (I’m sorry, “She”) would have to choose a new name, but I couldn’t figure out a way to fit it in.
    I love the concept of The Horsemen as a gestalt entity. It’s almost like a Jack Kirby “Fourth World” kind of a thing. I vote that The Horseman wears purple and blue power armor and ginormous ridiculous headgear.
    And answers to The name “Galactus”.
    That would make Alec it’s herald, right?

  • from Nick:

    Glad you all seem to like the twisted direction. Now read my description of Him (and it’s not Galactus, sorry Tarzan). I went a tad more biblical…
