Prologue - Genesis

Everything began when those scrolls were found at the bottom of the Marianas Trench. That was when the world went to hell.

One might call them the trigger of all this, but they were just the message. A prophecy of sorts, foretelling the end of days. A lot of religious texts do this, so it shouldn't have been taken seriously, right? They weren't, for a time....

Until the first of those prophecies came true. The messenger god was eaten by Ra. Or rather, the Sun consumed Mercury. Suddenly those prophecies were taken more seriously.

Then the second came true. "Fairies" made themselves known in Africa of all places. They promised to enlighten humanity, and stole away the entire population of Nigeria. We... we still have no idea what happened to them....

The first two events were somewhat easy to conceal. One as a surprising but not unexpected solar event; and the other as a nation acquiring weapons of mass destruction and annihilating themselves. But the third event was undeniably unnatural.

The stars moved. They physically and visibly moved across the sky, forming indescribably horrific patterns. Now so much as gazing at the night sky could cause one to go mad. It became so prevalent and undeniable that blackout curtains are required, and staying out past sundown is illegal. Those homeless who couldn't find shelters, or those in the farthest north or south had it quite difficult. The ones who lived at the poles did eventually solve their problem by never leaving their homes, but millions of those without went insane.

The fifth and final event so far is even more terrifying. Something appeared in orbit; something organic. It began to send strange signals to earth, demanding that we invite him to our world. So far, the government has been smart enough to refuse, but as of late they seem to be weakening. The world has all but collapsed after these events, with many nations barely hanging on by threads.

I'm quite scared, but what else can we do but keep on living. If I could change the world I would, but what can a single, pathetic human do in the face of gods?
