Web Original / That Insidious Beast

"I can't stand to look to the horizon. The fight has passed me by, I know. I am a coward, I know. But I cannot stand to look out. They're out there. The terrible things. The ones that fight for us."
The Unknown Soldier

A short (relatively speaking) Web-based story by Zack Parsons (of Something Awful), who also wrote Instruction For A Help.

The world is divided against itself, between two supernatural (or alien, or maybe... something else?) threats called the Unfolders and the Angels. The former portion of the story is mostly scene-setting, while the latter part follows a soldier ("named" Dan) as he is called before one of the Angels.
