Figures in rags and hoods, all in a row, walking through a darkened city.

A deep humming emanates from them, as they move along in their funeral procession.

But it is no coffin, no pallet, no mortal body that they carry to its resting place.

As they file past buildings stained in ashes, in some creeping black corruption, they are hauling behind them on great wagons, the shrines, temples, churches, pagodas, mosques, and other places of worship of many different cultures and beliefs.

A parade of the holy, pulled by human pallbearers.

Where do they go? What are they burying?

Finally, after a long time, they reach the edge of the ground. Broken by unknown events in the past.

And then, on the gray slope of that crevasse, they begin to dump the structures into it.

Small ones, large ones. Temple of mighty gods, shrines to local kami. The temple-cities of ancient civilizations, disassembled and wheeled through the streets of this dim place piece by piece, join the rest in falling down, down, down into the darkness, crashing and breaking filling the air with thunder as the next "offering" to the pit comes smashing and tumbling down after it.

The homes of the gods: large ones and small ones. The places where people came to page them homage: no matter their particular sect.

The vestiges of the places of worship for the gods, assembled in the Land of the Dead, by dead human souls, now being discarded, abandoned...

Put to rest, in that hungering darkness.

The dead are holding a funeral for dead gods.

Dead gods that lie in their temples even now, moldering, rotting...


And then Tamamo no Mae wakes up.
