As might be surmised from the working title, this piece follows the events leading up to the end of the Lupa timeline, when the Milky Way galaxy, and maybe even the universe, is in the process of dying. With only two immortals left and having lived on various failing planets, the Lupa find their way to a community of dying species; instead of the turnaround they expect this to bring, things only get worse. Will there be some hope before the end?
Important characters include Tigen, Niko, and Fa.
