I coined another new word

Apocellipsis: The final set of ellipses that indicates the end of a large body of written work. An ellipsis within a sentence contains three dots, like this: Dare I get...a Monster burrito? If a sentence ends with an ellipsis, proper punctuation practices demand four dots: So if I eat this I'll be.... Yes, you'll be full.

I submit that Apocellipses contain five dots, so you really, really know the end is here.
