event end: the beginning of the end

[At the Church of Salvation, the doors have been blasted open as if by a grenade. The interior of the church is normal- normal, that is, save for the glitch pockets surrounding the pews, growing and widening with each passing second. As with every glitch pocket you've encountered thus far, there are whispers tugging at the edges of your mind... but here, strangely, they're rather quiet despite your close proximity to the holes. The whispers are muted, as if something is suppressing them- and it's not hard to figure out what that something is.

A man is kneeling in front of the central pulpit, head bowed, unmoving. You've never seen him in person before, but somehow, instinctively, you know who this man is- or was. As you approach, his body flickers, rippling with the same sort of chaotic nothingness as the glitch pockets. You know, without asking, that Jonathan Zemekis won't be here for long.

As you stand before him, he raises his head and looks at you. His eyes are weary, broken, and surprisingly human; his voice is hoarse and defeated.]


So.

It's you.

[ The hugenormous space marine walks down the aisle towards the pulpit, feeling vaguely off in a church as he always has, expression hidden behind his impassive visor. ]

Yes. It is me. [ He touches his blood-greased armor, where hundreds of finely carved names can be seen carved onto his armor. A name for every person this town has taken from him, from Sanguinius all the way to Arf.]

And I have come, for you.

[ Loken raises the bolter. ]

Feel free to speak any last words you like.

[ He pauses for a moment. He wants to kill him, nothing but rage in his hearts, but... he halts, at least for a moment. ]

Very well. This was all about 'saving' us, saving yourself. Your world, the one I saw, is indeed terrible, though I have endured something of similar horror. When we began to resist, when we lashed out and it became clear it was no longer tenable to keep things together, why did not you just release us? You had to have known it would end like this.

No. In the end it does not. [ He raises the bolter again. ]

For the Emperor, for Sanguinius, and for humanity. And for all those I have ever loved in this place.

[ He fires the boltgun. Not in hatred or cruelty, but simply to bring an end. He always ends up being the one with bloody hands in this town, just like everywhere else. No matter what world he is in, Loken's role never changes. A man who stands against injustice, but in the end, he is still as much a slayer of men as those he struggles against. ]

Garvi, wait!

[A voice behind the Astartes tries to appeal, as the body it belongs to runs up closer to him as she sees what he's about to do. But it's too late, the gun has been fired. Even so, she rushes to Garviel's side, clutching at him as best she can.]

We already won, Garvi. The fight was over. [She cranes her neck up to try and look at Garviel's face, to question his act.] Why?

[The air chills. There's a faint crackle in the air, for anyone sensitive to the change of tension in the atmosphere. Not exactly murderous intent, but enough to unsettle any normal human with an uncomfortably strong and icy pressure from everywhere.

Ciel is difficult to anger. But her own talk with Zemekis set aside, a trigger has been pulled on a dying man. Inside a Church. Inside this church, the incontestably most important place to her inside the whole of Mayfield - and then some, even. So.

Tap yourself on the back, Garviel. You've achieved it. There's a faint swishing of robes, followed by her almost unrecognizable voice that's colder than steel.]

[ Caesar had been standing back and listening to what Zemekis had to say to everyone else. Why go through the trial of talking to that sad sack of a man when everyone else was doing it for him?

Of course, that all ends when Loken does it again. The usual thoughtless action of violence, of course.

Of course. It figures you'd be the one to blunder this one up, too.

He...he didn't deserved to be killed.

[Because no matter how bad Zemekis was, no one should be murdered.]

[ The space marine has a moment of what could be anguish, especially after his comment about going home to spend his last hours with Yuna, but walks on. He has no words of comfort for him, not even with the genehanced mind he's been gifted with, not even as a leader of men. ]

God damn it, you metal-headed bastard! What the hell!
