A Dead Dark God Grumbles (flash fiction)



A Dead Dark God Grumbles


I was once powerful. More powerful than anything seen before. I had many followers and was feared by everyone. Impregnable was my black fortress, unscalable were my defences, unassailable were my lands, undefeatable were my armies. Yet one day I was overthrown. My body was destroyed and my spirit was hurled into the darkness. And now no one remembers me. Nameless I have now become. A disembodied voice crying out in the void.

One day I’ll find a way to return and everyone will again quake with fear when they hear my name, and the world will be mine.

  1. A god or a celebrity who tweeted something recently deemed offensive?

    This is good. I’ve always wondered what happened to the gods Neil Gaiman killed off. Is there an afterlife for deities?
