1->'''Ford''': [[ImmortalitySeeker I]] ''[[ImmortalitySeeker will]]'' [[ImmortalitySeeker become immortal]].\'''Buffy''': Well, I've got a news flash for you, brain trust. That's not how it works. You die, and a demon sets up shop in your old house, and it walks, and it talks, and it remembers your life, but it's ''not'' you.-->--''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'', "[[Recap/BuffyTheVampireSlayerS2E7LieToMe Lie to Me]]"->You know, they have these stories and these movies I don't know if they're true about zombies down in Haiti. In the movies [[ZombieGait they just sort of shamble along]], with their dead eyes starin' straight ahead, real slow and sort of clumsy. Timmy Baterman was like that, Louis, like a zombie in a movie, but he wasn't. [[RevenantZombie There was somethin']] ''[[RevenantZombie more]].'' There was somethin' ''goin' on'' behind his eyes, and sometimes you couldn't see it. ''[[HumanoidAbomination Somethin' behind his eyes]], Louis.'' Don't think that thinkin' is what I want to call it. I don't know what in the hell I want to call it. It was sly, that was one thing. Like him tellin' Missus Stratton he wanted to cut a rug with her. There was somethin' ''goin' on'' in there, Louis, but I don't think it was thinkin' and I don't think it had much - maybe nothing at all - to do with Timmy Baterman. It was more like a... a radio signal that was comin' [[EldritchAbomination from somewhere else]].-->--'''Jud Crandal,''' ''Literature/PetSematary''->There is a [[VoidBetweenTheWorlds thin, mean world that exists between life and death]], a [[EldritchLocation place of grotesque horror]], devoid of pity and kindness. [[EldritchAbomination The things]] there prey on transitory souls migrating from here to the hereafter, like salmon spawning upstream. However, they wearied of living off scraps and decided to go straight to the source. They can sense the moment we die, and so schemed to snag a choice body from our world - one dead but comparatively undamaged, [[ReforgedIntoAMinion cramming it with their surprisingly subtle technologies]]. My flesh and bones, my marrow and genetic code were rewritten to make me into an engine of creation. [[BloodyMurder My blood]] became a vehicle designed to infect others - drones, warriors and workers, their sole purpose to construct a corner of that alien environment here on Earth.-> [[DrivenToSuicide I died of a broken heart]]. [[DarkMessiah I have returned to unmake the world]].-->--'''Sorrel,''' ''Stone Island''->'''Constantine:''' I went straight down to [[LondonGangster the Coopers]] an' had them lock me in a room with the boy. Called the demon. Ordered it into that smashed, torn little body an' watched it crawl around, sealing up the holes an' rips behind it. Then I gave [[TheDreaded Harry Cooper]] his [[EvenEvilHasLovedOnes pride and joy]] back. [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere I legged it]]. I ''ran.'' Not that anyone noticed. So long as Harry had his son, he wasn't gonna go barmy an' start some soddin' holocaust, an' that was all they cared about. But I had to get out. I couldn't stand bein' near the Coopers a second longer, an' I couldn't stand [[UndeadChild those little five-year-old eyes]], borin' into my back like fuckin' laser beams. I was the only one who knew the score. Not Harry or [[TheDragon Norman]], not even [[TheLancer Brendan]] or [[TheBigGuy Header]] or [[TheSmartGuy Rick the Vic]]. I know magic's double-dutch to you, mate, but this bit's horribly simple. [[RestrainingBolt The control sigil]] I cut into that thing's soul? Well, a cut on a soul's just like any other one. It scars over. It heals. An' sooner or later, it's gone like it was never there.->'''Chas:''' How long?->'''Constantine:''' Two or three years at the most.->'''Chas:''' But... that means-->'''Constantine:''' [[ThisIsGonnaSuck It's been free to do as it likes for the last twelve years or so, yeah.]]-->--''ComicBook/{{Hellblazer}}: Son Of Man''->And when he swore to [[BackFromTheDead bring back]] [[TheLostLenore his love]] by [[RewritingReality stories]] he'd create\[[EldritchAbomination Nightmares]] shifted in their sleep in the [[EldritchLocation darkness of the lake]]...-->-- '''[[Music/PoetsOfTheFall Old Gods Of Asgard]]''', "The Poet And The Muse", ''VideoGame/AlanWake''----
