->You perceive an entity not so much a demon but rather a festering wound in the fabric of reality. As you look closer (although even looking hurts your eyes) it appears to be a wriggling swarm of large black flies, composite eyes glowing a stark burning red. The shapes climb over each other in a seemingly shapeless heap, yet they all appear to share a single conscience, for they group into forms of weird animals with multitudes of heads and legs, into tree trunks ending in huge gaping maws, into dozens of other horrifying shapes, gradually shifting from one to the other. The bodies of several thousand flies appear to flow together into a long arm, tentacle, snake body, burning sword - an ever-shifting appendage ready to strike you. A constant buzzing and the scraping of chitinous shells against each other drive a pure evil through your ears directly into your mind. A voice dripping of a malice as ancient as the universe itself wispers: "I am the one who is many and Legion is my name.

->The Thing cannot be described—there is no language for such abysms of shrieking and immemorial lunacy, such eldritch contradictions of all matter, force, and cosmic order. A mountain walked or stumbled. God! What wonder that across the earth a great architect went mad, and poor Wilcox raved with fever in that telepathic instant? The Thing of the idols, the green, sticky spawn of the stars, had awaked to claim his own. The stars were right again, and what an age-old cult had failed to do by design, a band of innocent sailors had done by accident. After vigintillions of years great Cthulhu was loose again, and ravening for delight.

->The aperture was black with a darkness almost material. That tenebrousness was indeed a ''positive quality''; for it obscured such parts of the inner walls as ought to have been revealed, and actually burst forth like smoke from its aeon-long imprisonment, visibly darkening the sun as it slunk away into the shrunken and gibbous sky on flapping membraneous wings. The odour rising from the newly opened depths was intolerable, and at length the quick-eared Hawkins thought he heard a nasty, slopping sound down there. Everyone listened, and everyone was listening still when It lumbered slobberingly into sight and gropingly squeezed Its gelatinous green immensity through the black doorway into the tainted outside air of that poison city of madness.\\

Poor Johansen's handwriting almost gave out when he wrote of this. Of the six men who never reached the ship, he thinks two perished of pure fright in that accursed instant. The

->Five days I sat, hooded, [[HellholePrison in darkness and silence]]. As the sun traversed its cycle, [[GoMadFromTheIsolation I found that there were more shades in darkness than I ever could have imagined]].
->First there is the colour black, which one can still observe in the broadest daylight. Then there is shadow, where light is visibly blocked from venturing. Then there is true darkness, where no light can venture at all, but that is just an absence of light. There is a darkness beyond that, and it is a far deeper realm indeed. There are depths where the light has never travelled, where it has not the power to exist. There is a place where the darkness is thick enough to snuff out any candle, quench any fire. There is darkness so dense that it could put out the sun; and there are beings that live in that darkness.
->[[PrisonRape The things that Leonards and McKinley did to me on that beach]] - the violations they visited on me while Mitty and Boyd held me down, while Seamon stood by laughing - those are nothing to the obscenities I suffered down i the fathomless depths. The beings I contemplated were so hideous that I could discern their forms despite the utter destitution of light. The prayers I offered them were silent, for the darkness was so heavy that it choked the air from my lungs. Loathsome as they were, what else could I have done in the presence of beings of such magnitude?
->[[IronicEcho Silent contemplation and prayer]].

->''The Project is complete. The accelerators are online. The power network of a dozen cities is diverted to wake the psuedo-singularity at the heart of the Alignment. Space shudders like wind-wracked cloth. [Homeworld Star], for a heart-stopping moment, dims, and then brightens. A shadow coils in its heart. The Worm is here. It unfolds like origami.''
->''Across the system, sensors shut down in abject disbelief as the incomprehensible data of its arrival sleets through them. On the homeworld, our subjects scream and cower as they feel its attention turned upon them, and upon us. It presents a wordless question - or rather, we have become aware that this question was always what it was asking us, every time we encountered it.''

->You are alone, child. There is only darkness for you, and only death for your people. These ancients are only the beginning. I will command a great and terrible army. We will sail to a billion worlds. We will sail until every light has been extinguished. You are strong, child. But I am beyond strength. I am the end. And I have come for you, Finn.

Utter its name and resolve yourself to madness. Prayers and wishes are but moans and screams before it. An aberration that sits outside of reality, it is impossible for our kind to make sense of. —Demon Typology, Chapter 12"''
