Art by david RevoyA once-powerful goddess flees in terror from her own world.

Seeking refuge, she rips a hole through the very fabric of space and time, tearing the veil that separates one universe from another.

She steps through the rift, and it closes behind her. She believes that this new universe is empty. She thinks she has found her refuge, her safe harbor. Here, she thinks she will be free to create the gentle, loving, and kind world that she desires. She thinks her creation will be free from the taint of fear, anger, and pain. Here, she thinks she will create paradise. Here, she thinks she will dwell in peace and love with those who worship her.

She is mistaken.
