The Old Ones

“Legend has it among our people that the Old Ones will rise from the deeps once the trigger is pulled.  Their mouths will consume cities whole, and the people’s souls will be digested for eternity.  Mark my words, when the end times come, you will have no escape.

“‘But Professor, can we avoid the end times altogether?’ you may ask.  Allow me to burst your bubble.

“No one knows what or where the trigger is.  Is it when someone blows a booger of the correct mass?  Is it when the most beautiful woman in the world looks in the mirror and actually believes in her own power?

“Or has the trigger already been pulled – could it have been your birth?”
