Do you know what fear is? It isn't something to take lightly. Look up — what do you see? Nothing; the sky is dark. But it isn't empty, oh, no. Somewhere (far beyond what your feeble eyes can perceive) waits a dragon, its jagged legs slicing the vacuum of space. You have lived for decades on that blistered rock you call a home, the product of millions of years of evolution. It has existed for only a few years, sprung forth ex nihilo like Athena from Zeus' brow. And yet it is greater than you, and it will see things you will never see. And someday, soon, it is coming home. Know that, dear reader, and know fear — or wonder.

Yes, we also have tablets.
