Notes: Movie!verse. 31 Nights of Frights Frightening Females on the War Path
Even gods have something to fear. Being forgotten, being destroyed were top fears. And if you were Glory, you feared your insanity. She might have been trapped in Ben’s weak, mortal body, but not all of her was. A fragment of her mind had been placed inside a girl that had the potential to be a god if she chose.
Instead, she hid her gift, hid her power for a long while. It was only on the brink of heroic death that the only aspect of her fragile mind that remained was the part Glory had given her. Protected her, because without the body, the hell god could never come back. Ben was destroyed, and all that left was the fragment. She couldn’t go by Glory anymore, so she became Phoenix. Because the only thing gods fear is death, and a phoenix can never die, not really.
