The gods are beliefs that took form within the fabric of Nyx.

“The gods inspire belief,” said Kydele. “Surely the gods came first.”

I am the oldest, said Kruphix. But even I do not predate mortal belief. The first time a mortal of Theros looked up into the night sky and said “I wonder…,” some part of me came into existence. I am the unknown, the unknowable. I am what sits beyond the far horizon.

I watched as the others took shape. Death came next, ultimate and inescapable. Then sun and sea, forest and forge. After that, more abstract domains emerged—warfare, deception, insight, love.

“Love?” said Kydele.

Indeed. And more, that mortals have forgotten. Or did you think Heliod was always the sun god?

“How can there have been other gods? We would remember them.”

If you remembered them, said Kruphix, they would still exist. As soon as Heliod took his place in the pantheon, he was the sun god—and always had been. Mortals have short memories in these matters. If they had longer ones, Nyx would tear itself apart with rivalries and contradictions.

Four arms spread wide in a gesture of all-encompassing defeat.

Perhaps I was not even the first, said Kruphix. How would I know?

Kydele said nothing for a long time.

“So the gods are more fragile than they seem,” she said. “And their existence depends on mortals believing that they are not?”

So it would seem.



Theros is one of many worlds. Did you know that?

“I take it you’re not speaking of Nyx, or the Underworld.”

No. There are entire worlds out there, beyond Theros, beyond Nyx. Worlds you cannot see when you look up at the sky, places where the gods of Theros hold no sway. Worlds that you—and I—can never visit, with their own civilizations, their own histories, even their own physical laws.

“Their own gods?”

Again, the sense of vertigo as Kruphix regarded her.

No, he said. The word rang like a bell. Some, perhaps, have gods like us. But as a rule, no. We are…a local phenomenon.

“And you’ve only recently learned this?”

Kruphix shook what passed for his head.

No. There are beings who can walk between these worlds. The first such to set foot on our world did so long ago. I am the knower of all things that are known in this world, and I learned all that she knew.

Kydele thought for a moment about everything she had heard and seen from her perch in Kruphix’s great trees.

“Elspeth was one of these…world-walkers, wasn’t she?”

Astute, said Kruphix. Yes. She was. But not only her. So was her companion Ajani, the leonin who carried her body out of Nyx. So was the triton—the merfolk—Kiora, who called herself Callaphe and earned the ire of Thassa.

And so, he continued, was Xenagos.



“Then he is not what’s troubling you,” said Kydele.

Kruphix laughed—actually laughed, a hollow, echoing sound.

You see a great deal, My Oracle.

He folded his starry hands in front of him.

Yes, I am troubled, and not by Xenagos’s ascension, nor by the existence of these world-walkers.

I am troubled by what troubles them.

There it was. The dark, ragged edge around which they’d been tiptoeing.

The merfolk Kiora, said Kruphix, came here from a world whose existence was threatened by something called the Eldrazi. They are vast and terrible, the equal of any god. And they eat worlds, My Oracle. Strip the flesh from the bones of the earth and leave a dead husk, moving on to the next.

The leonin Ajani has faced an immensely powerful foe, a fellow world-walker and a dragon. He is unfathomably ancient, even to me. He seeks infinite power and immortal life. His plots span worlds and centuries, and he will spare nothing and no one who stands in his way.

And the human Elspeth…she came here from a place called Phyrexia, an entire world of flayed skin and twisted metal, ruled over by vicious, monstrous beings who style themselves gods. It is an affront to nature, a dark parody of life that corrupts all it touches and touches everything in time. And it has already made its way from one world to others.

Kruphix looked out into Nyx, night staring into night.

If any of these things come here, to our world, he said, even the gods may be powerless to stop them. And all your prayers, all your pleas, will fall on the deaf ears of a silent sky as this world is rent asunder or remade or worse.

One by one, the stars in Kruphix’s cloak began to flicker and die, until only blackness remained.

That is what I fear, My Oracle. That is what troubles the mind of a god. Theros is a minnow swimming in a deep, still pond, heedless of the depths, not knowing that something bigger rises up to devour it in an instant.

He faced her, four arms spread wide, a hole of pure darkness set against the starry light of Nyx.

So now you know. What will you do with this knowledge?

Derek Shepherd is and will always be an incredibly important character — for Meredith, for me and for the fans. I absolutely never imagined saying goodbye to our ‘McDreamy.’ Patrick Dempsey’s performance shaped Derek in a way that I know we both hope became a meaningful example — happy, sad, romantic, painful and always true — of what young women should demand from modern love. His loss will be felt by all. Now, Meredith and the entire Grey’s Anatomy family are about to enter uncharted territory as we head into this new chapter of her life. The possibilities for what may come are endless. As Ellis Grey would say: the carousel never stops turning.

She is singing your favorite song under her breath, and you are all butterflies.
Her fingers are locked with yours, and they feel as if they were crafted just for this, and the stars seem imperfect in comparison.
You are looking into her eyes, and there are uncharted universes calling to you.
She is smiling softly as you watch her lips move, and you think that this is home.
You are saying nothing, and she hears all of it.
You can’t imagine it being any other way.

Horoscope - April 24 2015

Aries Horoscope

(Mar 21 – Apr 19)

You are curious enough today about what motivates you that you are driven to explore your own fears. It’s as if a previously closed door begins to open today, allowing you access to uncharted depths in the recesses of your subconscious. Tread cautiously because finding your way in to this normally inaccessible space might be easier than dealing with the skeletons you discover there. Nevertheless, you are empowered by the truth and no longer need to fill in the facts with your own subjective worries. Awareness is power.

Taurus Horoscope

(Apr 20 – May 20)

You are like a lighthouse beacon for your friends today because you can hold your ground, even in the midst of a storm. Your steady nature is a true inspiration to your peers, even if they can’t compete with your determination. However, this is not a good time to be complacent, since the currents are shifting and you could quickly lose your sense of direction. If your perspective changes too quickly, bring your focus back to your immediate environment until you have reestablished your bearings. Don’t let anyone down; shine your light for all to see.

Gemini Horoscope

(May 21 – Jun 20)

Interpersonal dynamics seem unstable today, making it tricky to balance your needs with the emotions of others. Nevertheless, a solid opportunity for growth could be in the picture if you’re willing to work on understanding your true feelings. Even if you believe you recently avoided a potential meltdown, feelings tend to cycle around now and the past could catch you off guard in the present moment. Rather than creating unnecessary conflict, trusting your intuition leads you to the higher spiritual ground of forgiveness now.

Cancer Horoscope

(Jun 21 – Jul 22)

You may be required to work with people who are confrontational today. Fortunately, you can be sympathetic to the feelings of others without actually lowering your defenses. A cautious approach is helpful to revealing your desires now, since your vulnerability could land you in an unpleasant predicament. No matter which way it goes, keep your eyes focused on your goals. Your tenacity saves the day, even if you must separate your personal convictions from your actions for a while. Choosing peace is always a good idea.

Leo Horoscope

(Jul 23 – Aug 22)

You are eager to approach your work from a slightly different angle today, prompting you to challenge authority if it prevents you from doing your job well. However, you might run into annoying problems unless you can demonstrate your sincerity right away. No one will be impressed with your cleverness today; instead, others need to know, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that you are expressing what’s in your heart.

Virgo Horoscope

(Aug 23 – Sep 22)

Settling down isn’t on your agenda today, even if you’re tired of your irrational feelings running you all over the place. Luckily, your astute ability to analyze complex facts puts you ahead of the game. Nevertheless, you feel the stress as you consider the conflicting data that comes from your various experiences. Don’t be afraid to retreat emotionally to reestablish your own metaphysical center. Instead of rushing the process now, be patient and create a more workable plan that can actually take you to your destination.

Libra Horoscope

(Sep 23 – Oct 22)

Although everyone thinks you’re busy working, you may be spending more time than anyone realizes sorting out your feelings. People assume you’re pitching in and doing your part to help the cause, but you don’t necessarily feel like a team player today. You have more important things on your mind as you integrate the details of your daily routine into your larger vision. It’s not your job to get along with everyone now; simply acknowledge what is most important to you and let others form their own opinions. The only person you need to please is yourself.

Scorpio Horoscope

(Oct 23 – Nov 21)

It’s time to make a concerted effort to pull in your energy and concentrate on exactly what you need. You can accomplish a lot by eliminating extraneous distractions, but you still might not find enough time to make your dreams come true. Avoid hanging on to old judgments about the value of your work. Don’t worry about the long-term ramifications of a current decision. Just show up and do the very best you can in each moment. Sticking to your good intentions makes room for a more positive perspective to emerge.

Sagittarius Horoscope

(Nov 22 – Dec 21)

Recent confusion may lead to open conflict today. The good news is an animated discussion clears the air of ill feelings and might even result in an unexpected agreement. However, you may harbor resentment if being stuck in a seemingly endless debate prevents you from reaching your goal. Trying to persuade others to accept your solution now only widens the existing gulf. When you acknowledge the differences of opinions instead of pretending they don’t exist, antagonism morphs into cooperation and common ground can be found.

Capricorn Horoscope

(Dec 22 – Jan 19)

You could be so single-minded about fulfilling your desires today that getting along with others seems relatively unimportant. You may believe everyone is taking an extreme position with no room for compromise. Unfortunately, your current intensity can scare people off or intimidate them to act out of character. In either case, the pleasure of the moment could be lost unless you decide to play well with others.

Aquarius Horoscope

(Jan 20 – Feb 18)

One of the ways you maintain your cool composure is by keeping your feelings to yourself. Unfortunately, suppressed passion could boil over today and spill out of its safe container. Don’t pretend you are innocent by acting surprised when you express your true desires. A healthier response requires honesty and admitting what you have known for a while. Even if your emotions are quite inconvenient now, it’s better for your friends and associates to know what’s in your heart. The truth will set you free.

Pisces Horoscope

(Feb 19 – Mar 20)

You are more inclined to trust your instincts about love and friendship today, even if they draw you into an unnecessary battle of wills. Others might not agree with you now that your perspective has grown into a more spiritual one. The facts as you know them resonate with your larger-than-life worldview. But it’s better to be cautious when revealing your personal beliefs, even if you are confident about your position. Remember, unnecessary conflict can undo the positive steps recently taken. Limit the topics of conversations for your own peace of mind.
