Summary: Buffy/Watchmen crossover. Glory wasn’t the only god interested in the Key.
In the cold vacuum of space the being that was once known as Jonathan Osterman stared unblinking into infinity. Something had drew him here, beyond the far reaches of space, just outside the fringe of the milky way he felt its call. There about twenty feet away from him was a multidimensional tear. It was small, too small to be visible to the naked eye, but he could feel the energy like static electricity on his skin. The energy was so different from his own subatomic framework that it was almost alien in nature and definitely not from this universe. Whatever that caused this had certainly came from the other side.
If the abnormality continues to grow it would destroy all life in this universe, unraveling space itself and Doctor Manhattan couldn’t let that happen. Even though he had left Laurie and with her what little connection he had left with humanity behind Doctor Manhattan still harbored a high regard for life itself; and, he would do everything in his power to preserve it. But, he couldn’t stop the abnormality from growing, at least not from this side.
Doctor Manhattan hesitated. Once he entered the rift there was no guarantees that he would be able to return. But did he wanted to return? His powers had grown beyond what any human being could imagined. He was now as close to a god as any mortal could ever hoped to be, but there was a price. He had grown complacent. He may no longer be human but he still desired that connection, something to anchor him to the physical world and fill his lonely existence. He had severed that connection with humanity when he had left earth. There was nothing to hold him in this universe, not any more. Perhaps it was time to move on. With that last thought the blue god pushed through the boundaries of reality and disappeared from existence.
