Case File: The Fates vs. Every Mortal Creature

Police Reports

Case Description: Complainants (Everyone Who Has Ever Lived, is Living, and Will Live) accuse defendants (the Fates) of an infinite number of accounts of first-degree murder. It seems the Fates are responsible for every death that has ever occurred or will occur in the future.

Case Status: "Too bad," say the Fates. (And we don't want to mess with them.)
