Eifen Deifeiffen

Eifen Deifeiffen looked out upon the world he had made, and the creations he had breathed life into. He found the sky wanting for lack of beauty, the mountains wanting for lack of grandeur, and the meadows wanting for lack of tranquility. Disgusted and ashamed with his work; he crumpled the manuscript he held, on which he had carefully drafted out the whole of this existence, and devoured it. Thus ended that existence.

Eifen Deifeiffen began anew, writing of another world in his monstrous ledger. That world is ours. And one day, he will shovel into his maw the very manuscript on which our lives have been etched into.

Today, certain sects have taken it upon themselves to stave off this apocalypse with flattery. Their sermons, if you can call them that, consist of overly generous literary critiques. The belief is that Eifen Deifeiffen himself will overhear and deem everything acceptable. Or at least refrain from eating his work. Calling themselves The Acolytes of Deifeiffen they can often be found on corners, spreading their word and the words of others. You see, they believe the Bible, Quran and other holy works, to be books within the book as it were, also authored by Eifen Deifeiffen. During the 60's the Acolytes attracted a large following, owing mainly to their inclusive atmosphere. Since then, membership has tapered off.

This has prompted the creation of a splinter sect, who see the reduced membership as a sign that no only have they failed, but that Eifen Deifeiffen stands ready to tear it apart with his teeth. This splinter sect, dubbed the Acolytes of Eifen Deifeiffen for the Reformation, believe that the world is doomed, and only through good and outstanding works they will be remembered and saved. They will be written of once again when Eifen Deifeiffen resumes his fruitless efforts.

Though they may be saved once, there will come a time when they too are consumed.The cycle will continue. Forever.

Why didn't any of you consider the possibility that Eifen Deifeiffen might not be malicious?
