In Search of Story; Darkness & Collapse (Destiny)

This is a post of me trying to be through in my search.

I've been dabbling through lore that has some connection to "The Darkness", primarily looking to see if there is anything in it about "Stasis", to which I have so far found none. This will probably be rectified come November, but I wanted to give it a look all the same. In the process of my search, I've found my self looking at the in-lore musings and philosophical lines in the sand that often come about in many of the passages involving "That Darkness". It's all very interesting, but there is a certain something I've found my self trying to find. The Story of "The Darkness". Some examples for reference, I've looked at: Ghost Fragment: Darkness, Ghost Fragment: Rasputin 3, Witherhoard.

That last one, I think, is telling. If "no one knows" then that explains the lack of story to be found. Yet, it occurs to me that this is wrong, and that I've been submitting the wrong query. Just as Mesopotamia, the story to be told is in what was left behind. So now I'm looking at the Lore about "The Collapse". The returning sheer list of sources of lore is what brings me to post.

While reading (or watching in some cases) through these fantastic passages is quite interesting, I have found myself wondering if there are any folks who have made this compendium of collective works simplified into an ordered text. I of course know Ragashingo has his Bite-sized Backstories, but he has not yet done anything involving purely lore of "The Collapse". There are a few quite old youtube videos, and even fewer more modern youtube videos, but nothing really to give a full play by play of what happens. Just "and then everything felt wrong".

Is there anyone else who summarizes lore? Or, if there isn't, for those of you who are more knowledgeable of the lore, are there any passages that stand out toward the topics mentioned?

As stated; This is a post of me trying to be through in my search.
