The End of Paul Atreides

I had left my home behind. My children were born, my wife long dead, and the desert world of Arakis had begun its change into paradise. I know that Kynes would be proud, if only he knew how happy his daughter had made me. Now Leto II and Ghanima must rule the planet themselves, and hopefully the Empire as well.

On to a better place. Know one knows exactly what death is like, but for me, it looked like a door. An unfound door….

When I opened the door, I couldn’t believe my eyes. I thought that death would be the end of my mortal existence, and I would only live on in the heads of my children, as the Bene Gesserit Reverend Mothers always have, but this was ridiculous. As I walked through I saw a man standing there, and odd but powerful man. He wore an odd hat, and old clothes, made out of the leather of some animal. His one hand was missing several fingers, and they were both at his belt, where he held some sort of primitive weapon. Lasers, but not quite, small cannons that he was prepared to fire upon me.

“Who are you, and why did you come through this door.”

I remained calm, even though my visions were gone, and my ability to see the many futures in my path had vanished, my eyesight had returned, for the first time since the horrible bombing I could see. I quickly reviewed the Bene Gesserit Litany against fear –

"I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain."

“I am Muad’dib, the one who can see without seeing. Otherwise I am Duke Paul Atreides. Leader of Arakis”

The man’s expressions did not change, he still had the same look of power and calm on his face.

“I am Roland Deschain, and I know nothing about who you are or where you came from, but none of that matters now. You are the ‘The Prophet’ as it says on your door, and now we must find another door, so the trifecta can be completed.”

I did not understand what he was talking about, but as I turned to the door I just came through, I saw that it had slammed shut, and above it read “The Prophet.”

“Didn’t I just die? How can I be here?”

The man, Roland, had a little smirk on his face, and then he looked up at me. I had a feeling this was one of the few emotional face I would ever see from this him.

“There are many other worlds then the ones you know. A dear friend taught me that. We have know time, we must find the door and get the one called “The Mathematician.” We need to form an army, of our must trusted men, and fight of the evils in this world. I do not know WHY we must do this, but all I know is that is the way to the Dark Tower. We must fight for the goddess Angelique and defeat her enemies.”

I did not know what this ‘Dark Tower’ was, or who Angelique was either, but I could tell by the mannerisms of this man, and the way his hands still clung at his weapons, that I had little choice, but I figured I’d try to get out of this first, or see how powerful he really was.

I decided to use the voice. In a deep and subtle voice I looked with piercing eyes at this stranger.

“You will take your hands away from your guns. And you will let me leave this place and return to where I came.”

Roland looked at me oddly, I didn’t know if he was about to obey or laugh.

“That is some strange magic you are trying to use on me, but I’m afraid it wont work. I’d appreciate it if you wouldn’t waste any more of my time. We need to go find this Mathematician and get on our way.”

We walked through the dessert for what seemed like ages, seeing weird things along the way, such as things that could only be described as ‘Lobstrosities.’ But the dessert made me feel like I was at home, on Arakis, except there were no Makers here. The giant worms must have been part of my previous world.

Finally we came to a door. It floated in mid-air. When I walked around, it disappeared. On top it said “The Mathematician.” And just as I was about to ask my new friend a question, the door swung open.

An elderly man passed through.

He fell to the ground. Looked up at us, confused.

“Where am I? I thought I just died?”

I looked at Roland, and a grin slowly grew on my stubble lined face.

“There are many other worlds than the on you know. Am I correct Roland”

He just nodded at me.

“But… where are we? WHEN are we? Never predicted this. This is mathematically impossible.”

I laughed. He was a scientist for sure.

“I am Paul, or Muad’Dib. And our scary friend over there is Roland.”

“My name is Hari. Hari Seldon. I come from Foundations edge.”

Roland stood in front of me, his hands were nowhere near his guns. This man must not be dangerous, physically at least.

“We don’t care where you are from. We have no time for this, we must get going. We are ka-tet, and we have a quest at hand. We must join our forces together and fight the evils in this world, so that we can achieve our goals. Whether its to find the Dark Tower.”

Hari spoke next.

“Or save the universe.”

“Or create Paradise.”

It felt as if we had known each other for a long long time. Now we must gather our forces and fight for this ‘Angelique’ goddess. I knew it was time to gather the best of my troops. Hopefully Gurney or Duncan have door of their own.
