kristensk: bingo! (sk bingo)
[personal profile] kristensk
This was inspired by a comment made during mine and [livejournal.com profile] mintysage's SWAT Kat re-watch as we noted that the PastMaster emerges from his sealed casket and already knows precisely 800 years have passed.


Time

The power to manipulate time was the greatest of magicks. To master it was to master death itself.

And, to achieve such mastery, one had to first learn to feel the flow of time, to sense each instant as it passed.

Instants had weight. And, death did not like to be denied.

But, the power was worth any price. And, there was always something to busy his mind. Something to blot out the steady press of time against his soul.

Until the Council found him. Until they captured, bound, and buried him.

In the darkness, he knew nothing but time.

Notes: That went a little dark. Alternatively, maybe he just counted rounds of "99 Bottles of Beer on the Wall".
