In his nightmares the chevrons are demon dogs, with cold blue eyes, deep silver fur, and a touch that turns everything to ice. They stalk the edges of his pleasant dreams with the shadows of deeper terrors pooling at their heels, waiting for their chance to strike.

In the waking world he watches them out of the corner of his eye — he can’t look and he can’t look away — each time as they sink their teeth into the gate symbols and tear the universe apart.
