    “Love blurs your vision; but after it recedes, you can see more clearly than ever.
    It's like the tide going out, revealing whatever's been thrown away and sunk:
    broken bottles, old gloves, rusting pop cans, nibbled fishbodies, bones.
    This is the kind of thing you see if you sit in the darkness with open eyes,
    not knowing the future. The ruin you've made.”

    Giant (Aquatic). Because D&D needs more giants. That are aquatic.

    Alright, the votes are completely tallied, & the winner is:
    Aberration (Extraplanar, Shapechanger)!

    So, the creature is going to be an Aberration, with the Extraplanar & Shapechanger subtypes. This sounds like it's going to be an interesting one. So next, I need you guys (& girls) to vote on the creature's Size. Votes will be tallied regularly. Please only vote for 1 size, thank you.

    Going out on a limb with my train of thought here. If this thing's an shapechanger, it may well be able to take many forms, so whatever size we choose here will probably be its "base form," right? Also known as: whatever the PCs will fight as the final fight, if this guy makes it as a BBEG.

    Ergo, it needs to be something appropriately epic. I vote Huge.
