The Origins of Excalibur

And even more odd tellings.


“Because you. Have done this,
Cursed are you above all cattle,
And above all wild animals,
Upon your belly you shall go,
And dust you shall eat,
all the days of your life.”

“The voice of your brother’s blood is crying out to me,
And now so from the ground , which has opened its mouth to receive
Your brother’s blood from your hand, 
When you till the ground, it shall no longer yield to you its strength;
You shall be a fugitive and a wanderer on Earth”

“Behold, thou hast driven me this day away from the ground;
And from thy face I shall be hidden;
And I shall be a fugitive and a wanderer on the Earth, 
And whoever finds me will slay me.”

“If anyone slays Cain,
Vengeance shall be taken upon him,
Sevenfold!” 
To Nod, East of Eden.

“I have slain a man for wounding me, 
A young man for striking me.
If Cain is avenged sevenfold,
Truly Lamech, Seventy-Sevenfold.”

“My spirit shall not abide by man for ever, for he is of flesh,
But his days shall be a hundred and twenty years,”
The Nephilim were on the earth in those days,
And also afterwards, when the sons of god came in to
The daughters of man, and they bore children to them. 
These were the Mighty men that were of old, the men of renown.”

“Gopher wood.” <— What Noah’s ark was made of. Makes me laugh every time.


Upon the tainted slab that was of Abel’s blood and all his sacrifice, Cain and Lamech fought. The other trying for vengeance just as the other tried for more vengeance. Viceversa was the intention of each. They bled heavy and raptured each other. None showed any restraint, none showed any remorse. The battle was endless, until came the one who created Adam and cursed Cain to wander and leave his mark and stench, and that voice said unto them,
“Folly is the war between, for endless will this strife be, You both have stricken the other and shown with much desire and hatred, that you are both not let up. For this, you shall both be cursed, like your father before and your sons after. Cain, for your trespass of murder, you shall be that of which you are, a murderer, your shame, your need to keep face hidden, shall for ever be a new curse, you shall be that of a blade, taker of life and bloodletting, the mark left on the head will now be that of a blinding light as you leave YOUR mark of death. Lamech, in your rage and thirst for the taste of blood and vengeance, your desperation to be more vengegul than the curse your father bears, you shall be the opposite for to kill, for you shall be to never let life be taken, for you shall be the blade bearer. He who holds both of you shall be what he will, for good or for evil, and you shall now forward be what you sought to not, sword and sheath. Life taker and lifer keeper, Cain and Lamech” 
And so was born, EXCALIBUR. 
When the world was then flooded, Noah and his lot being the only to survive and create anew, all living things were drowned, and thus became creatures of the deep. The Nephillm then slept, these giants of man and fallen angel would come again. But for a time not arrive. One of them to claim he be the son of god. But that was not the case, for he was birthed through the daughter of man, and the Lady of the Lake. She would be cursed within meadows and grottos. It wasn’t until a man known as Joseph would summon her, unknowingly, to the realm of land and out from the realm of Sea and Lake and River. She came, crawling upon the ground, eating of the Earth. Dirt. She would come and tempt man once more, birth a man of much talent for the arts of magic, the ability to create from elements. She would be the source of the power, this Mother of Nature. God would leave the world to thrive on its own merits and not destroy again, the rainbow a gift of his promise. And he left, to create new planets and in different ways, just as he would in different ways destroy them in all his errors, through new means, until he was unable to destroy again. And created galaxy upon galaxy. All would be connected, the Universe. Atmospheres reflect the methods. With each new planet failed and ruined, creatures were born. Alien to one another in the vastness of this blotted space, connected only through life and death cycles. Connected only in the light of failure. And so, the Pall was born. A blackish hole within the blankness, to swallow and dispense. The more perversion that was done to the worlds, the more perversion would then be got. Violence breeds Violence, Death brings Death and as is, It was only in the death of stars that would bring a salvation to man. From Iron, pure and vanquishing of creation would there be hope to combat any form. For the  Death of Stars would negate anything of magic and unnatural. A pun to the existence of creation itself.
