Prompt: Dogma, Loki + Bartleby, they did walk through that door
At first, there's silence. Deeper than eternity and wider than creation, the silence cascades out from between Bartleby and Loki to the world. It echoes and reverberates, shaking everything from the center to the edge. Loki gasps and clutches at Bartleby, but then the silence shrieks and rips apart.
After the silence, as creation explodes and shatters and breaks into pieces even the Creator couldn't put back together again, Bartleby whispers, "Loki, forgive—"
Loki does not hear him. There is nothing.
The Creator weeps, but everything is ended—even Her.
