She began an amateur despite all the skill and ability she had accumulated before now. Finna the huntress still had much to learn about hunting the true horrors that defiled the night and offended Luna's eye with their machinations.

The dream continues from that point, like it has been, showing her hunting down and killing these horrors. Breaking the chain of festering death begetting evil, one link at a time.

Nightmares of all description, each fully capable of being the center of any given dream, all laid out before her.

Until one day, in a forest, she meets something that looks like a deer... But isn't.

And she remembers the words that Maretta's avatar told her. "If you see something that looks like a deer but is not one, do not try to fight it."

All of Finna's instincts tell her this thing that increasingly looks less and less like a deer to her eyes is the very Bane of those touched by the Moon. This is the anathema of all Luna's children, and all beings like them.

"Run. Do you understand me?"

This is something she is duty-bound to destroy. A monster that is the enemy of her very existence, of the existence of many of her friends and allies, of people all over who pay homage to the Moon in any of her forms.


She starts to raise her bow, supernaturally swift.

And the not-deer kills her.

She simply dies, with its antlers shredding her body before she even knows what is happening.

The Moon Slayer then stretches its neck down, opens its mouth full of teeth that do not belong in an herbivore's maw, and begins to eat her.

Finna wakes up.
