Ask @onryotatarigami:

I also know not what form of battle it will be. Emotional, spiritual, mental, physical, astral? Another uncertainty. But I do know that I shall test your power. Eventually. And you will be at your maturity and at your full power when the true battle begins. We look forward to it.

so I probably have a few millennia to prepare

Your mother's fears were justified. I delight in your power. Such awesome, wonderful power. Only omnipotence, the ability to create and manipulate life can hope to stand against me, against us. And you possess it, so me and the rest of my race look forward to the challenge.

So I'm set up to face the Great old ones
*Nova's reaction is something like this*

Though I hope you do not mind if I cause some pain myself here and there. I existed long before your mother's race, and I will last long after yours, but the boredom and isolation of eternity can be quite... maddening. Hehehehehe...

H A S T U R
Don't expect me to just sit back and let you do whatever, if you have been observing me, you know full well I'm a fighter

And yet the pain will not stop until you force it to stop. Courage, my dear. And hope. These two things are what you require to achieve true happiness, be it with a family of your own creation, or by yourself. Love does not come without some price, yes?

H A S T U R
true, but again, I am not ready to face my inner demons, I don't know when I will be, only that it's not yet

I know, little one. And I know it will be difficult for you to face your inner demons, but I also know that you and you alone have the power to overcome this obstacle. Not your friends. Not your adoptive family. Only you. It will hurt, very much so, but you are no stranger to pain, hmn?

H A S T U R
No, I'm not, ever since the truth of my non human nature was revealed pain has been the lone constant in my life

Hmn... I sense great darkness within you, in the form of hatred and doubt, directed only at yourself. There is a happy ending for you, several in fact, but you cannot take any of their paths until the hatred is purged and your doubt is slain.

H A S T U R
I'm not at a point where I can do that yet...

They were more akin to humanity then they realized, and yet they could not be any more different. If you sit down my daughter, I can use my cosmic powers to at least show you what your world was like, for a brief time at least.

... I don't know if I want to know... I mean they died because I had to be brought back to Earth and disease made it back there. I don't want to see more beauty I've ruined

I know them. Met only one, but I have watched their lives and their works. An interesting race, to be sure.

H A S T U R
Well you probably know more about them than I do, I'm left finding artifacts in their dead world... I haven't had the courage to go farther than the areas I've already reclaimed
