...to ask for their surrender.
(Based vaguely on a dream I had, except she wasn't quite so pretty in the dream!)
The humans still on Earth are powerless to stop the spread and are quickly consumed like all the others. Only by the vastness of the unverse does the viris not easily spread to neighboring galaxies, allowing greater forces from those galaxies to finally contain the viris within the Milky Way.
Unable to find a cure for the viris or reason with it, and with nothing inside the galaxy worth saving, the greater forces use artificial black holes to consume the Milky Way, before turning the black holes upon themselves in a endless circle. But this does not end the troubles.
Soon, the entire unverse is affected by the pull of the circling black holes. A super black hole is soon formed, the size of three Milkey Ways. This leads to the consumption of the entire universe. But once this accures, the black hole collapes upon itself.
The result is a Great Bang, larger than the Big Bang that created the former universe. A new unverse, three times the size of the previous, is created. Life starts anew on countless worlds and the great cycle begins once more.
Great picture, btw.
