Beware the good looking ones.

Ok, first blog... Hey everybody.

 

Not every cosmic horror, or preist is a dead ugly monstrosity.

 

Take Hastur for example; In my parodyfic; "Mask of the Yellow King" it's revealed he wears a mask because he's actually incredibly handsome, so much so that he could not walk amongst humans without them - looking once at his face- becoming seriously infatuated.

 

What else..?

 

I'm writing another at the moment "Usless Fancies" , which is more "Lovecraft-Lite" than parody. Reasons so:

 

-Plenty of "Pet the Dog" moments from Nyarlathotep.

 

("PET THE DOG":

 

"You let one of them go, but that's nothing new. Every now and then, a little victim's spared... because she smiled, cos he's got freckles, cos they begged. And that's how you live with yourself, that's how you slaughter millions, because once in a while, on a whim, if the wind's in the right direction, you happen to be kind."

— The Doctor )

 

When writing Nyarly's character, I tend to look to Sutekh (Set) for smugness, and the entitlement to his power, and throw in some of Apep for the evil factor.

 

I shall tell you this, if you're promised a date, and the date turns up looking so utterly dazzling that you struggle to focus on anything else. Run. Just run. 'Cause it's Him, and maybe He'll spare you if you beg, maybe he'll keep you as a "Pet" if you continue to beg and listen to his whims.

 

Echo.

Liking your take on Hastur,I must admit I've always gone with the scary appearance before but the so handsome it hurts is a cool idea and a nice twist.
