    Summary

    Echoes of the seven of them stretch into infinity, and now there’s Kravitz, a parallel line that they keep crossing despite all physical laws. Taako can see how they are bound together, he and Lup and the rest of the crew, white shimmering cords that stretch between them, between himself and Kravitz, and every aspect of Kravitz and every aspect of the Raven Queen in every world, all existing simultaneously. The Light falling to countless worlds at once, the Hunger descending over it all, the same patterns into infinity and nothing to stop it except for a silver ship, a bright beacon, unique among it all. He can see all of it.

    --

    They’re hunted by two immensely powerful creatures now, the Hunger and the Raven Queen’s servant. It's too bad Taako can't seem to stay out of harm's way.

    Summary

    There was an uncomfortable silence. The halfling cleared their throat. "Well, um. Do you know where you are?"

    They seemed to think he should, like the question had a glaring, obvious answer. And Taako felt like he should, somewhere in the back of his mind. His thoughts were working slowly, though, not yet ready to let go of the abrupt transition from the sunny day to this small room and the cold that was sinking into his bones. In the awkward, ensuing silence, something clicked into place.

     

    Everyone finds their way to the Astral Plane eventually. Some arrive too soon.
