Out of the darkness were born Donn and Danu.
They looked at each other with so great a passion that they locked together in an inseparable embrace.
Donn and Danu soon bore children. After some time, one of their sons, Briain, decided that he had to break apart his parents so he and his siblings could live.
With Danu's blessing, Briain slayed his father, cutting him up into 9 pieces. These pieces would form the world.
A horrified Danu wept, sweeping away her children. One of these bouts of crying gave life to a reincarnated Donn, in the form of an acorn.
The acorn grew into a tree. Another grew into Donn's brother, Finn. As Danu wept, Donn tried to stretch his branches up to heaven to dry her tears.
Berries fell from Donn; these became the first humans.
Finn proposed that they should bring death to the humans. Donn disagreed, and they fought. Finn was struck down.
When he realized what he had done, Donn was overwhelmed by pain. His heart burst and his body was torn apart. This renewed the world.
Death came to the world. Donn became the god of the Otherworld, where dead souls go, while Danu became the goddess of heaven.
And still, separated by our plane of existence, they continue their love.
