Arguably the darkest goddess in the Celtic pantheon is the fiery, red - haired Morrigan. This frearsome Irish goddess was triple -aspect as the goddess of sexuality, war, and death.
She was was also triple - aspect with her two sister, Nemhain and badhbh, and the three of them often would change into the shapes of ravens swooping and cawing over a battlefield, apparently rejoicing in the blood of slain warriors. More usefully , she was able to incite one side in a battlefield against another and thereby secure a victory, She could also change shape int the dreaded "Washer at the Ford". a beautiful maiden seen, before a battle, apparently washing the bloodied clothes of a warrior about to die. Her power to predict the deaths of heroes, as well as unfavorable outcomes of war rendered her extremely fearsome , particularly when she adopted the guise of and old hag, with one eye and a shriveled leg, in order to pronounce her prophecies. In her destructive aspect, the Morrigan resembles such enchantresses as the Greek Goddesses Circe or the Hindu goddess Kali. In the later tales of the Arthurian cycle, she is linked to Morgan le Fay, Magician and sister of King Arthur.

Butbutbut... the Costner character kissed that girl! Now, to be fair, she was a redhead, and if he was going to get all weak-kneed, it would be over a redhead, but... neno is SKEERT of gurls! He's scared of spiders, 'cause they'll bite ya before you see 'em, and he's scared of gurls, 'cause they leave bruises that ya can't see!
One other twisted consequence of all this - when we repair the Big Rip, and time itself is changed from that point forward, one of the differences in the development of our "home time" will be that the Earth still exists and was never destroyed, the UEF still exists with it's legitimate President still in place, Bransom never was President (she remains a low-level bureaucrat), and Ernie never killed her.

Hot damn but if that didn't do it.
Maybe because just recently someone called me a nut.
BUT. Matter can't just disappear. Energy just can't not be energy anymore. Sooooo where did it all go?
Or is it still there, just, not there...

I get what you're saying nenothtu. The classic "it was all a dream" like when Bobby never died in Dallas...
When I read your analogies, I'm thinking of the multi-dimensional wowreally stuff that quantum physica talk about. Like in other dimensions, the things we think about doing actually took place, so that every potential outcome does exist somewhere else.
so.. is that kinda what we're talking about here??
And, is there a predetermined point where all this is supposed to converge back to? A page I can look at?
Obviously many of the characters I've just met are doomed -- who will be left?
And what about the flute, silo? Isn't muckles supposed to do sod-all with that thing to save the universe? And Carpet is beholden to get her back to Carbiox?
But Carpet needs to have a chat with Silo?
I'm lost, guys.
SHHHH! There's kids around, and they might not know what "Dallas" is... it'll cause questions!
"A'ight. You gotta plow, say, movin' snow. An' a stupid cat run right out in front the blade, an' its tail gets the chop cuz the blade 'n' the tail can't BOTH be a-touchin' that there snow...yeah, and so seein's the plow's the tougher the tail is...ya'know, roadkilt."
Anyway, funny thing that? Since then? The day I had today is beyond believable.
Almost burnt down the house, killed my Iguana and bird.
Almost bled to death trying to keep the house from burning down, lol and now? Now I'm just a wee bit 'tipsy' cause the doctor told me (remember I'm in a third world place here, lol) the doc told me to go home, eat two raw eggs and drink a big glass a wine to help buck up my blood. All it did was make be 'buck up' my lunch (I only got through one egg sucking before I hurled) and yeah, the wine went to my head...
