Quotes / The Night That Never Ends

Tirek: The Rainbow of Darkness, the darkness sends. Now, begin the night that never ends!

Nightmare Moon: Well, well, well! Somepony who remembers me. Then you also know why I'm here?
Twilight Sparkle: You're here to... to...
Nightmare Moon: Remember this day, little ponies, for it was your last. From this moment forth, the night... will last... forever!

And though the Sun may plead and threaten,
The Moon will stand her ground!

It comes to this at last, I will no longer yield the sky,
If they cannot love but one princess alone.
See the moon is rising, she has come to claim the heavens for her own!
And all will know the wonder
Of my dark and jeweled sky

When all the world is wrapped
In an eternal lullaby
So say goodnight at this,
The final setting of the sun
Tomorrow dawns in darkness
The nighttime has begun!

Sapir: If the curve holds true, the sun will set at 3.01 pm on Thursday and will not rise again. There will be no sunrise on Friday.
Cameron: But how is that possible?
Sapir: It's not.
Cameron: Then how—
Sapir: It is what it is. <sobbing> It just...is.

I had a dream, which was not all a dream.
The bright sun was extinguish'd, and the stars
Did wander darkling in the eternal space,
Rayless, and pathless, and the icy earth
Swung blind and blackening in the moonless air;
Morn came and went—and came, and brought no day,
And men forgot their passions in the dread
Of this their desolation; and all hearts
Were chill'd into a selfish prayer for light.
— From Darkness by Lord Byron

Darkness covers the entire world: the sun no longer shines; the moon and stars are not seen in the heavens. No light penetrates the inky shroud. Deprived of the sun, the Earth grows cold. White snow drifts down from the black sky, Leaves turn crisp and dead beneath lacy frost. The lakes and rivers freeze more slowly, but in a few days a rime of ice covers them as well, and inches out to sea. The flowers, insects, birds and animals of summer are the first to die. Even the winter-hardy evergreens slowly wither, however, without the sun's light to sustain them. As the cold sweeps into the tropics, creatures that never felt winter shiver and die.
Humanity resists as best it can: where the power grid remains intact, generators hum and lights shine against the darkness. These regions would be larger had Kindred elders not sabotaged civilization to protect themselves. Less fortunate people huddle around fireplaces and light candles. The people who remain in cities are hit the hardest. Few among their undead masters care very much.

John Murdoch: When was the last time you remember doing something during the day?
Inspector Frank Bumstead: What do you mean?
John Murdoch: I just mean during the day. Daylight. When was the last time you remember seeing it? And I'm not talking about some distant, half-forgotten childhood memory — I mean like yesterday. Last week. Can you come up with a single memory? ...You can't, can you? You know something, I don't think the sun even exists in this place. Because I've been up for hours and hours and hours, and the night never ends here.

"He's b-a-a-ack! Despite their best efforts, Carter and Sadie Kane can't seem to keep Apophis, the chaos snake, down. Now Apophis is threatening to plunge the world into eternal darkness, and the Kanes are faced with the impossible task of having to destroy him once and for all."
Official description of The Serpent's Shadow, the final book of The Kane Chronicles

"This land shall know no dawn. I will spew forth darkness and drown all in eternal night. And high above you I shall shine uncaring, cold and distant as the moon!"
Yotsuyu becoming Tsukuyomi, Final Fantasy XIV
