Nightcrawler MonologueEdit

They say the ages of man are denial, awareness and acceptance. A young man believes he will live forever. A middle age man knows he will not. And an old man is ready.

What then of those taken out of sequence? How to prepare them for the bitter end?

A man who knows he will not die is a young man. He is kept young by the knowledge that death shall have no dominion. There's nothing so hard as watching that die.

A dozen in a single night. My children and my people. Who should have lived forever, living their last. Who would ever believe that they would die?

My people...

My children. One short sleep past. We awake eternally and death shall be no more. Death thou shalt die!

We will survive.
