here I am
Choronzon You know the rules, Dreamlord? If you win, I will return your helmet. If you lose, you will ssserve as a plaything of hell, for eternity. Our ssslave.
Morpheus I understand.
Choronzon Very well. I have the first move...
I am a dire wolf, prey-stalking, lethal prowler.
Morpheus My move.
I am a hunter, horse-mounted, wolf-stabbing.
Choronzon I am a horsefly, horse-stinging, hunter-throwing.
Morpheus I am a spider, fly-consuming, eight legged.
Choronzon I am a snake, spider-devouring, poison-toothed.
Morpheus I am an ox, snake-crushing, heavy footed.
Choronzon I am an anthrax, butcher bacterium, warm-life destroying.
Morpheus I am a world, space-floating, life nurturing.
Choronzon I am a nova, all-exploding, planet-cremating.
Morpheus I am the Universe -- all things encompassing, all life embracing.
Choronzon I am anti-life, the beast of judgement. I am the dark at the end of everything. The end of universes, gods, worlds... of everything.
And what will you be then, Dreamlord?
