Ingression of NonExistence - Final

The Magic SOB forum is for posts of story sequences that are frequently vignette-based. Put those here while actual battle reports can go in Reports From the Field.
You must talk like James T. Kirk in this forum at all times. Leonard Nimoy is fine too.

Ingression of NonExistence - Final

There is a certain corner in the darkest and most obscure reaches of the Brikverse, one where many have gone to fade away and be forgotten – one shred of sanity at a time.







Image

It was in the realm of NonExistence where Quantumsurfer Ken’s fate had been sealed, fallen prey to the nefarious QuantumStalker.







Image

And so he fell.

Further and further into the endless abyss, where each swirling pool of PT took more than just his breath. It took a part of him.







Image

The violet warp consumed him. Well at least not completely. Not yet.







Image

As the same thing had happened again. And again.

The title would make for a great Quake mission pack.

Alien feelings cascade over Ken as he sinks further into NonExistence, powerlessly plummeting to meet his fate. The feeling of despair accompanied by helplessness had been dominant among them as his mind races, trying desperately to find a way out.

Image

Below him, tendrils of PT snap and squirm around another violet warp. By now the scene was horrifyingly familiar; he would fall into a pool of PT and find himself falling toward another. Again and again, the only difference was the growing size and ferocity of the withering tendrils.













Image

"̶͍̹G̭̗ot̩͕ta̗̗͎̙͔͕ be… a way out.”

His voice was distorted and he couldn’t tell if he was actually using his voice or thinking it. Maybe it was both? Ken’s senses were all but foreign to him at this point.













Image

The tendrils below finally catch and envelop him and begin to tear him apart. Ken would have screamed but he realized he had been rendered incapable.














Image

"̭͍͓̲̠̻̹I̟̪͘ş̯͖̣̞͟ ͝҉̤̞͙̬͈̫̹t͏̴̢̩͕ḩ̥̰̺͍͓̪̮̰e̯̺̯͇̟͟r̦̻̲͙̟̯͖ͅe̸̜̲̺͈̞͎̜͢ a way?”


His thoughts inquired frantically as he felt himself falling apart at the seams, he feared the process would drive him mad. It was probably designed to do so Ken had assumed. He wondered how many other ‘Surfers before him suffered this fate.








Image












"This c̀́̕a̶̶͡n͡͝'́t͟ ͞be͏̸... how it e̴̴n̛͘͝d̶̨̛͟͝s̵̨̢͠ for m̲͚͎̮̪͙̗̜̼̯̥̝̗̳̙̣̦̞̬͜͞ę̼̻̮̥̣̩̫͇̀͢͢͠..."











A wave of calm washed over Ken and he forced the ghost of a smile.









"Heh."


Image



“Y’know… I think I had a pretty good r͘u̷̧ǹ̸."͝

Memories from his past began to play like a black-and-white slideshow in his mind's eye.














Image

The good.












Image

The great.













Image

And the really fuckin' great.













"I can be happy with that."















Image



Maybe this won't be so bad.

"What, giving up so soon?"





Image


"I hope you are quite done with that self-reflecting, grimdark bullshit, good sir!"








Image

A great skeletal hand descended from the shadows and reached for Ken, who watches in astonishment.
    
“What's this…?”








Image

The hand wraps around Ken’s separating form and suddenly the effects that NonExistence held on him seemed to ebb away.
    
“Don’t struggle! You’re safe now.”








Image

"...Unless you wanted to stay down here?"


“No… ‘course not.” Ken still couldn’t tell if he was using his voice or his mind to speak to this strange entity, but whatever or whoever the arm belong to seemed to understand him completely.

“Good!” Cackled the voice, “now let us leave this forsaken place. You owe me a favor, Quantumsurfer Ken.”





~End?~
