Hello Anachiel, love the Elvira avatar!
Interesting, I saw the movie but don't member it that much.
I really like the whole 'circular' thing present. The story comes full back around to the beginning with "Time is Fluid here" and the role reversal of him being that man entering the door and at the end he is the demon waiting behind the door.
I also like the line "As the demon raised his arm to deliver the first blow, it said, 'In time you will remember even this moment with fondness.'" The physical pain being a gift compared to the emotional pain and awareness that was still to come.
The story reminds me of the circular nature of life and death, karma, 'The Wheel of Fortune' card in tarot, etc.
Any ideas on the title of the story? Haven't wrapped my head around the title quite yet.
