DB Extracurricular - Smoke over Grimsvotn - Teaser
It was spring, but it was hard to tell that from the temperature. Nine degrees Celsius and that was the high end of what could be expected here during May. Especially out over the glacier, where starting a fire for warmth wasn't exactly the most advisable of activities. The centuries worth of ice covering the stone of Iceland pulled all the heat out of the air, making it hard for the sun to warm the surroundings. Especially since it was already at a disadvantage given where on the globe the island sat.
Over time, pockets of the glacier had been opened up by various means and across the vast flat expanses of ice meaning there were places that the top ice was thin. A traveler or researcher could think they were treading upon solid ice when suddenly it would shatter under their feet and send them falling into a labyrinth of mirrored caves. People had been lost due to such accidents in the past.
The windswept loneliness was soon broken as four bursts of smoke appeared out of nowhere atop t

DB Extracurricular - Following Dernhelm - Part 1
"Mr. and Mrs. Kilroy," the man at the door declared as they entered the room. "And their ward."
Mrs. Kilroy, a stately dark-haired and dark-skinned woman who didn't seem to be nearly as Irish as her name, turned a hand to cover her mouth at the introduction and stifled a laugh. The light was dancing in her eyes as she did so, not cruelly, at least not intentionally.
"It's like some sort of grand ball or something," she tittered. "Introducing us like that. One wonders where Cinderella is."
"Well that's easy, dear," Mr. Kilroy noted in response. He clearly showed the source of his surname with a shock of fading and once bright red hair in comparison to his African-American wife. "That would be our little Aouda, wouldn't it?"
"Wouldn't that make you the evil stepparents?" the girl behind them asked dryly. She was no more Irish than her mother, and showed neither of her parents' bloodlines in her face.
The humor behind Mrs. Kilroy's looks dimmed a bit, and not with hurt or disappointment,

DB Extracurricular - Serious Matter
"This is a very serious matter, Miss Minaba," Mrs. Grissom warned the girl sitting in her office.
Sherissie Minaba was rather average looking with dark chocolate brown skin and free flowing shoulder length hair styled in a modest and somewhat conservative manner. Her uniform was slightly rumpled and smelled dusty which made perfect sense given the way she stuffed her drawers. She wore no make-up and accessorized almost nothing she had. She looked rather boring in fact.
She wasn't fidgeting at all.
Given the girl's reputation, Mrs. Grissom always expected her to be displaying the characteristic symptoms of hyperactivity. She had been in Grissom's office several times, but never along with anything like the evidence needed to dismiss her. At least until this time, but that's where things got a little complicated. Because while this time she'd caught herself in her own trap, she'd also had a more understandable reason for her actions.
"I know that, Mrs. Grissom," Minaba agreed. "Darrin sh

A Day in the Life of a Busy Woman
The redheaded woman, Mao Semezou, kneeled at the edge of her room next to a case full of various tools used for engraving and marking surfaces.  Currently, there was a chisel in her hand which she was using to carefully cut a line into the concrete of her floor.  There was already a fairly wide network of lines across the floor, and the line she had just started was going to be intersecting several of those.  The rug that normally covered the inscribed concrete was rolled up and out of the way.
Mao was youthful-seeming.  At the moment, dressed for dirty work, someone just glancing would probably have taken her for someone between nineteen and twenty years old.  A look in her face, however, would have confused the issue.  There was precious little youth in her expression and manner, and an appreciation for simple, peaceful tasks that came with an innate watchfulness that was not acquired without a price paid in tragedy.

High School Hel - Teaser
Hel woke up in her bed to the sound of Marsha slamming their door on the way to the showers.  A brief look to the desk at her side showed that it was around six thirty in the morning.  To clarify, it was around six thirty on a Sunday morning.  The one day out of the week for which they had no classes at all.  She should have been able to have another three hours of sleep before having to wake up.
As usual, once she was awake, she was Awake.  Still she remained quiet and immobile on her bed, purposefully closing her eyes.  Closing her eyes didn't help, she had to pretty much hold them closed or else they opened to stare off at the wall lying there awake and not wanting to be.  Some had said that she was a morning person based on how early she often woke up.  It was more that her sleep was fragile, just like everything else about her.
Briefly, she made an effort to flex her left leg and then her left hand.

Divine Blood: Can't Go Home
Róisín was perfect. There was little else that the man sitting beside her gently sleeping form could say to accurately describe her. Black hair hung loose down to just below her shoulders. Not just black hair, glorious hair that seemed almost as if it was a piece of the night sky draped over her head. The beads of sweat along her locks failed to mat the hair down as it would with any other woman, instead it enhanced the image of the evening spun shawl by glittering like stars against the dark.
This was contrasted against alabaster skin that never seemed to tan. Lying beside him now, she seemed a fey ghost of snowy hills against the comparative darkness of the cream blankets. She was unscarred, despite the years that she'd lived a very active life style. There was no natural mark on her that wasn't mirrored on the other side of her body. Róisín had softened the impact of her symmetry by a liberal practice of tattooing herself with asymmetrical designs.

DB Extra - Regarding the Proper Use of Force
Gaetana Trolleti stepped off the helicopter out into the Japanese night surrounding the landing zone. Her lavender hair whipped about in the strong winds produced by the spinning rotor. She held a briefcase tightly against her chest with one hand and the other straightening out one of her shoes. Dressed in the formal blue business suit, the pose made her slender figure appear all the more feminine and beautiful.
“Be careful ma’am,” another woman said as she stepped out of the helicopter and stood beside Gaetana. “You shouldn’t get out of the helicopter so quickly.”
The woman stood another five inches taller than the lavender haired strategist but no one would have called her beautiful. In fact, her face showed a lot more lines, many of them scars, than someone her age had a right to. She was in her mid-twenties, but already looked closer to being in her forties. She was dressed in civilian clothes, business pants and blouse with a jacket that she pic

Divine Blood Extracurricular: Pop Quiz
Vollstahl was a port city, not the biggest port in the area, but certainly it received its far share of traffic. Given that port cities were along the water, they usually came with stretches of beach that were frequented by locals and tourists for any of a number of purposes. For the moment, one of those people, a local, was doing a little recreational scuba-diving about fifteen feet down from the surface. The silt filled waters around him were making his first attempt at spear-fishing rather difficult.
He would have frowned under his mask if the breathing apparatus was positioned in such a way as to allow it. Granted, the air supply was getting close to the safety point as well and without visibility, finding any fish was going to be next to impossible. The diver reached back to check his catch bag, making sure it wasn’t leaking any blood that would point him out, and then started to push his way back up to the surface.
Which was when he saw the movement out of the corner of his

Divine Blood Extracurricular: Magnets - Teaser
“In front of each of you is a steel bucket containing fifty pieces of metal,” the teacher explained as he walked up and down the rows of lab tables. “Five of those pieces are magnets. You need to identify those five magnets in the next three minutes.”
The class full of nine and ten year old students, with one purple-haired eight year old, listened to the teacher quietly and without bemoaning the task set before them. The school didn’t tolerate much in the way of acting out and few students were willing to risk the teacher’s attention with either questions or complaints.
“Get started,” the teacher instructed.
The eight-year old girl, her long royal-purple hair tied behind her in a practical pony-tail that kept it out of her way, reached out to the bucket in front of her. She was well aware of the occasional looks in her direction, catching them out of the corner of her eye here and there. The younger girl was uncomfortable in the class wit

Bystander Chapter 1 - pg 2-20
Bystander
November, 2035
The woman was a striking figure, wrapped in a high-necked kimono in colors of purple and blue.  Ice-blue eyes stared out from under her silver brows and her unwrinkled, snow-white skin.  A light blue shading blended subtly into her skin, giving a hint, strengthened by the blue of her painted lips, of someone that had perhaps been in the cold too long, though no shiver touched her body.
The hair was not white, but silver, as if the precious metal had been mined and strung out into fine threads.  She wore it in a traditional Japanese bun save for two long braids that hung down in front of her ears to rest first upon shoulders and then follow the curves of her chest to the level of her heart.  The hair shifted lightly in a breeze that only heightened her ethereal appearance.
The woman’s age was difficult to determine.  Upon first glance, the silver hair and outwardly austere styling might give her the impressi

Creepy Cute
Eija panted briefly as she paused and glanced backwards toward the rising sun with a brief sigh as she reached into her jacket pocket and pulled out her sunglasses to slip them over her deep-red eyes. From her perch on the edge of the roof she'd been running across, she watched the shifting colors, wondering what it looked like without the glasses, but knowing that even taking them off she still wouldn't see the sunrise since the brightness would just force her to close her eyes anyway.
She lifted her hand to her chest and took a deep breath.
"Hello, Miss," a male voice said in a careful soothing tone.
"Excuse me," she responded. "I shall not be here long."
"No, no," the voice said quickly. "Don't be in a rush. Just take a moment and consider matters."
Eija's eyebrows furrowed briefly as she thought about that statement. It was oddly nervous and insistent and there was a heavy feeling of worry from the source.
The girl turned to look at the speaker and noted it was a young man maybe ab

Bystander - Crossed Circuits - pg 97-114
Spring, 2033
Lucretia looked at the spine of the book in her hand for a long moment as the air conditioner of the climate controlled building poured mildly cold air into the room.  She loved climate controlled buildings.  It was so much easier to read in a place where the temperature didn't change more than a fraction of a degree very often.
The Stannich Research people that had their hooks in her while she was locked up had diagnosed her with dyslexia.  It was an inaccurate diagnosis as the silver-haired peak had never really let her researchers in on everything she could do.  They didn't realize that she had two, even three, bands of vision that tended to interfere with each other.
Unstable or high temperatures upset her eyes and had her normal vision overlayed with a mash of color shifts that were every bit as complex as what she saw in the common spectrum.  However, books and signs were written for people that saw in that normal spe

In Motion
Naiki wasn't particularly paying attention to the orientation speech. Instead she was smelling the air and scanning the audience.
She could smell blond on the air. It was a lovely scent as always.
It wasn't all that big of a trick. Different ethnicities, with different genetics and slightly different body chemistries put out somewhat different smells. When one spent one's life learning to distinguish specific people from the whole by scent, it became relatively simple to distinguish whole groups from each other. Add to that a rather specific fascination with blonds and she had definitely learned to tell that subset apart from the others.
There were more than a handful of blonds in the building with her.
There were also one or two people that were less human than she and her siblings were, but that was less important.
For the moment, she was instead focused on comparing the various merits of one blond to the next. Though most of what she saw around her were just little kids - a whole ye

Just A Girl
The day started with a headache and remnants of odd dreams from the night before, but there wasn't anybody to talk to in the house, so the occupant didn't bother to make much in the way of a coherent complaint, though she was working up to it. The girl, sixteen years old, threw her legs over the side of the bed and stretched on waking up, one hand rubbing at her forehead firmly. Her black hair hung in disarray down to her mid-back, strands of it sticking out in odd directions, a dark, royal purple showing at the base.
Her feet showed a good deal less animation as they shuffled underneath her off toward the bathroom in a dazed trance that a zombie would be proud of. Briefly, she directed her gaze toward the clock on the wall next to a picture showing a tall Korean man, his wife and a young boy. The girl confirmed that she had a good two hours before she had to be ready and out of the house.
"Ugh," she said, shambling into the bathroom.

Deployment
The wind ripped through the air between the close peaks and trees, carrying with it swirling snow that settled out over the wide, comparatively flat space hidden between the mountains. An old jeep trail wound through the rolling, uneven ground coming to a circular space cleared by at least somewhat frequent use, though it looked as if nothing had been through the area for at least a week, maybe two. A skiff of snow was starting to cover it but the storm hadn't been running long enough yet to lay down the winter's first covering of snow.
Silence reigned, aside from that slight, constant sound of the fast moving air, whistling quietly as it twisted about the stone edges of the mountains at the edges of the area, or down over the cliffs descending down toward the foothills of the Himalaya Mountains. That accompaniment rose and fell in intermediate bursts as the gusts shifted about and fluctuated from one point to another such that the center of the sound moved from one place to another.

"Hello, I'm pleased to meet everyone," Deimosu said cautiously, putting on a casual tone that he didn't really feel was appropriate. "My name is Deimosu Semezou and I have recently moved here from Europe. My mother's career has caused us to move on several occasions, so I have been many places. As to hobbies, I pursue the martial arts and do enjoy studying my mother's native language, Japanese."

Cosmic Horror and Cthulhu

Journal Entry: Fri May 8, 2015, 1:53 AM


Note: This is a rant, not an essay.  I ramble, tangent, diverge and meander.  Be warned.


There is a common assumption that Cthulhu and company are cosmic horror. That they have to be cosmic horror and any use of them that is not cosmic horror is an improper use. They are taken to be a part of the genre rather than characters that most frequently appear within a genre. It is expected that if Cthulhu appears in a story that he must be an unbeatable foe that causes insanity merely observing him. To do otherwise is to not be using Cthulhu appropriately. However, while Cthulhu, Hastur, Azazoth and the like are characters primarily known for cosmic horror storylines they are not, in and of themselves, cosmic horror.

Less commonly, you also find some people who think that cosmic horror can’t be cosmic horror without some element of the things Lovecraft wrote about. The Necronomican and various Cthulhu Mythos entities are very frequently integrated into other pieces of fiction on the lingering assumption that cosmic horror must be linked to these things. There are cosmic horror storylines without Lovecraftian references, but they are somewhat less common.


This overall attitude has been seen in creating the trope referred to on TV Tropes as “Angels, Devils and Squid” where you have the traditional good spiritual entities, the traditional bad entities and then you have this third group that is so terrible and unknowable that both the previous groups want to work together to prevent them from winning. Lovecraftian entities are very often assumed to be something so horrible and powerful that facing against them is almost a doomed prospect.


This attitude is not the only one demonstrated, however. For example, the Ghostbusters cartoon quite famously had Cthulhu in one episode and he was defeated in the same 30 minute episode. Arturia Pendragon, summoned as Saber during the Fate/Zero novels and anime, was likewise shown to use Excalibur to destroy Cthulhu in one attack once she was healed of an inhibiting injury. The instances where eldritch abominations are defeated somehow has resulted in another trope noted as “Did You Just Punch Out Cthulhu?” There are also numerous Cthulhu parodies ranging from the video game “Cthulhu saves the World” to a setting known as “The Laundry” where humanity has a sort of truce with the Deep Ones. But all that is another ranting conversation. I merely wished to acknowledge that I knew such fiction existed.


That said, I will also admit that my frustration with the idea that Lovecraft’s pantheon should be treated as cosmic horror and only as cosmic horror is mostly fueled by frustration with fans of Lovecraft’s works intruding on conversations completely unrelated to Lovecraft or the like with statements along the lines of “Cthulhu eats them all”. This is rather unfair of me and I know there are a number of more reasonable fans of Lovecraft who would never do such thing. I also enjoy discussing the Lovecraft universe and have been known to raise my eyebrows at things like the Steam-available game “Call of Cthulhu: The Wasted Land” which presented itself as a CRPG based on the Chaosium TRPG but made laughably poor attempts to present the Lovecraft pantheon as a united front of alien entities out to overrun humanity rather than being at each other’s throats and humanity caught in the crossfire as in Lovecraft’s canon.


What it comes down to for me is that a lot of Lovecraft fans consider Cthulhu and the like to be these uniquely powerful entities with characteristics unlike that of any other creature from fiction or myth when the reality is that Lovecraft used a lot of real world myth for inspiration but didn’t want to be limited in his interpretation by using names that had pre-existing expectations attached to them. None of the actual characteristics presented by Lovecraft’s entities are unique to them nor are they demonstratively more powerful than any other supernatural entities.


I have discussed this in other rants, but the insanity causing appearances, unkillable natures, effect on the natural evolution of living creatures, and their effect on the operation of the surrounding natural world are all traits common to creatures of myth and legend for centuries. If there is really a unique aspect to the Lovecraftian entities it is in the fact that humanity is not of real importance to them which can be seen as challenging to our humanocentric view of reality. Even that, however, has its mirror in the stories of the Fae that have been going on for thousands of years. Plus there are numerous modes of belief throughout history which reason that the gods mostly don’t care about humanity and we simply have to survive their whims.


Cthulhu isn’t really any more powerful than the Orcus portrayed by the Dungeons and Dragons game and Nyarlahotep isn’t much different from entities like Bane, Cyric or Mask from Faerun. Bringing the Cthulhu Mythos into D&D isn’t going to present much of a change to that genre in and of itself. In fact, D&D already makes frequent use of Lovecraftian elements including the sahaugin (Deep Ones) shoggoths (gibbering mouthers) and illithids (mini-cthulhus) without the game becoming cosmic horror. More recently, drawing power from the Old Ones, with Cthulhu mentioned by name, is a possible pact for a warlock character.


Horror is a sensation that arises when something you are facing challenges your deeply held understanding of the world. It doesn’t require a supernatural element. Everyday there’s someone in the world who experiences horror first hand due to entirely mundane by terrible circumstances. Cosmic horror focuses on our beliefs on the fundamental nature of reality. Humanocentrism is a common belief, so cosmic horror often targets that by presenting enemies which simply don’t care about humans for any reason other than momentary use. Where as many stories with a supernatural element present humanity as unique in some regard with our souls as the goal of some cosmic battle between good and evil, cosmic horror often makes us out to be the rare nematode that only lives in this one pond which will be driven to extinction by the incoming mini-mall.


In fact, cosmic horror could be invoked in the reverse. Imagine if the standard belief was that humanity was an unimportant anomaly in the world. That there these great and powerful entities out and about which could flatten us like a bug but largely didn’t care about us. They’d have no real daily impact on our existence. It’d be like living with earthquakes, tornadoes and hurricanes. It’s just something that happens occasionally, nothing that you could control. The only supernatural entities that really care about people are ones that are relatively small and for which there are ways to ward them off or destroy them. Except for the presumed intellects of many of Lovecraft’s entities, that’s really no different than living in a vast universe with comets, black holes and other things that could out and out obliterate Earth without any difficulty.


Now imagine growing up with that understanding and then one day discovering that there was an all-powerful force that had created everything, including those massive supernatural forces that don’t care about you. Or maybe that those separate massive supernatural forces are just things this creator does. And imagine that this creator cares about what you do and will send punishments against you when you do something wrong but you have no idea what “wrong” really is. Imagine going from “there’s awesome cosmic powers out there but they don’t care about me” to “there’s an unimaginably cosmic power out there that cares about even the very smallest decision I make and is quite willing to condemn me for eternity even if I didn’t know there were any rules much less what they are.”


However, a lot of the English speaking world comes from a society wherein using cosmic horror was considered a good tool to use towards performing religious conversion (despite how it conflicted with core doctrine of the religion…but that’s another rant for another time). As such, most of us don’t really consider that cosmic horror, but rather consider it to be something else entirely.


Cthulhu is just a character, as are Hastur, Nyarlahotep and Azazoth. Adding a character does not make something cosmic horror. Nor is someone obligated to make a story into cosmic horror just because one of these characters is included. Nor are you obligated to include these characters when you write a cosmic horror story. Lovecraft could just as easily have written stories about Poseidon, Zeus, Hel, Izanami, Houyi, and any of a large number of other figures from real world mythology and religion. He decided not to because he didn’t want to be constrained by the expectations associated with said entities. That said, he still drew a lot from real world myth. As an example, Dagon was a Semitic Mesopotamian fertility god associated with grain and fishing and was part of the pantheon worshipped by the Philistines. He also made use of Bast and Hypnos as being among the sort of protective Elder Gods (though even they were dangerous in his stories). And yes, Lovecraft did write stories where there were supernatural entities that helped humanity, always for their own purposes, but the idea of good entities was not entirely due to Derleth.


The Cthulhu Mythos also suffers as cosmic horror because Lovecraft went through the trouble to define the unimaginable and mind-bending secrets the very thought of which would drive men mad. Many of the horrible revelations within Lovecraft’s stories are commonly considered in modern times. There are millions of people who don’t believe humanity is the center of the universe or even at all important, being just one species on a small planet on the edge of only one galaxy. The idea that all life evolved from some proto-biotic protein goop is accepted as scientific fact. There has even been recent consideration that life may have been carried to Earth on debris from space, though I don’t know how much support that has. The concept that we are a byproduct of alien experimentation is a common fictional trope and an actual belief of many people in real life. There is a lot of science regarding non-Euclidean geometries and Euclidean geometry itself is considered more or less a useful approximation of space on a planet. These are all included amongst the ideas that Lovecraft implied humanity was inherently capable of bearing without our mind breaking and yet they are common concepts in the modern world. Almost every instance of “things man was not meant to know” is commonplace in fiction today and many even appear in basic science.


Lovecraft built a lot of his horror on his own phobias and prejudices. Fears of congenital insanity, mixed bloodlines and even seafood were among many of his quirks. He was writing in a time period when the diseases of the mind were a matter of horror of their own and while his brand of racism was extreme even for the time, there were many people that were likewise terrified of the results if people from different ethnicities produced a child. He did succeed, and still does, in evoking horror. I can remember shivering while reading the “Colour Out of Space” in broad daylight, and “The Vault” is one of the more terrifying things I have ever read. That said, I found “Call of Cthulhu” much less terrifying. It pretty read exactly as I expected it to.


This is the problem. Cosmic horror hinges around suggesting that the things we know to be true are, in fact, not true. Any concept can become a facet of cosmic horror when that concept contradicts deeply held beliefs. We consider things like bacteria and viruses to be common knowledge, even if some people know less about them than they should, but imagine trying to explain the matter to anyone of the 12th Century. How would they take the idea that there are billions of billions of entities too small to see which can get into your body and start causing you to be ill. If you were to actually convince them the result would likely be something of a germ phobia as we see today. They’d go insane trying to think of ways to seal themselves away from these invisible, tiny creatures seeking to murder them. Forget what would happen if you told them that we need some of those tiny invisible creatures to even live.


Once the concepts become known and successfully assimilated into the whole of what is real it ceases to be horrible. Horror fiction relies on audience expectations in order to be successful. There is a narrow line between fulfilling those expectations exactly such that the story is too predictable and breaking those expectations entirely so that story feels “wrong”. To some degree this is true of any sort of fiction, but evoking a sensation of horror depends so much on twisting these expectations that it is a special case. More specifically it is the sort of expectations that are twisted. Horror movies twist the assumptions we make about the rules that the world operates under specifically while all good movies tend to twist the expectations of plot development.


To illustrate this, take “John Carpenter’s Vampires”. It is a movie about vampires so it very clearly is a horror movie, right? Well, it would certainly be shelved as such, but if you consider it closely, the movie is more of an action movie with vampires. There are a few plot twists that are interestingly handled, but overall the nature and capabilities of vampires are clearly delineated in the first part of the story and never stray far from it. All the character actions stay within a clear framework of world rules that allow the audience some solid ground to watch the proceedings from.


Compare this to something like King’s Salem’s Lot where the general, well-known rules of vampirism are followed along with including some obscure bits of lore. However, the framework he works with here is in the reactions of the village. As the reader, we know more or less what is going on, but we keep expecting some small band of heroes to turn back the tide of darkness eventually. It is frighteningly realistic just blind all the characters seem to be over the course of the developing infestation. The horror is not in the vampires themselves but in how passive the people are and how easily they’re willing to accept the growing death toll as natural until there are far too many vampires for any one group to deal with.


To take it one step further, I would suggest looking into the anime “Shiki” but will avoid saying anything more than that in this rant to spare the spoilers for this lesser known piece of horror. Watch or read Salem’s Lot then find “Shiki” and marathon the episodes, preferably somewhere dark.


It is easier to evoke horror when the reader has less of an idea of what to expect. Once you say “vampire” or “werewolf” the audience starts connecting the well-known rules of each creature. Stepping past those rules in some form or fashion is necessary to unsettle audience expectations and evoke horror, but stepping too far past risks have the audience dismiss the entire thing as wrong. For example, many people get annoyed when you have vampires that can walk around in the daylight, despite the fact that all four of the classic gothic vampire novels have vampires that have little to no problem with daylight.


Cosmic horror and the Cthulhu Mythos have the issue that they are a very specific genre of horror. People picking up a book dealing with Lovecraftian entities expect tentacles, insanity, depraved cults, rituals to summon apocalyptic end times and other such trappings. They expect anything supernatural to be at least dangerous to toy with and most likely an out and out threat. This very specific set of expectations is the reason that there are so many parodies of Cthulhu in existence and so many storylines involving the Cthulhu Mythos become somewhat more action, mystery and pulp than actually reaching the point of evoking horror. The purist audiences have very strict expectations and can often lose their immersion in the story by playing watchdog to make sure all the necessary points are clicked and no mistake is made.


The Lovecraft purists, for example would hate the fact that Cthulhu is a one-off event that is eliminated over the course of one or two episodes in the Fate/Zero storyline. The fact that the Servant who summoned Cthulhu and the Servants fighting it are humanoid abominations in their own right would be overlooked, because most would not equate the souls of past and future Heroes and Villains as being eldritch abominations. However, while Cthulhu is a minor element in it, the Type-Moon universe that the Fate storylines take place in is rife with cosmic horror where even the collective will of humanity’s survival can manifest in such disasters as Pompeii (and no, that’s not a mis-statement. The collective will of humanity’s continued survival dispatched an entity to manifest as a volcanic eruption and eradicate Pompeii entirely). Looking into the novels, visual novels and assorted other materials that the various anime are based on presents a host of horrifying elements that show the story protagonists to be points of light in dark world.


Some of the most horrifying stories of Cthulhu Mythos don’t particularly need any real supernatural element at all. All they require is human cultists and witnessing the depths to which a person is willing to go in order to achieve some end, especially when the end goal seems to be something no sane person would ever want. The Whateleys are imminently more terrifying than the Dunwich Horror. The Horror itself is a supernatural monster that we can safely expect to never encounter in real life, but a handful of lunatics killing people in order to fulfill some religious fervor is something we see in the news daily. Likewise, the real terror of the “Shadow Over Innsmouth” isn’t in the fact that the villagers are predominantly inhuman, but in how easily we can conceive that an isolated village in New England could produce similarly murderous behaviors. The supernatural elements candy coat it, but somewhere in us is the realization that even if Cthulhu itself is fiction, there might be someone out there willing to kill for it. It’s that bridge of reality and fiction where our footing is unsure and we develop niggling little doubts about just how much of what we’re reading is pure fiction and how much is actual possibility.


Ultimately, while cosmic horror deals with elements such as the structure and operation of the universe, the horror of cosmic horror stories is created in the places where our fiction overlaps with reality. There might not be a shoggoth in the shadows below us, but a swarm of rats will kill us just as well. Slenderman might not be a real thing, but a couple of kids can still try to kill a friend to garner favor with it. There might be no evidence of any truly Satanic, devil worshipping cult having ever existed, but that doesn’t stop people from being hung or lynched on suspicion of such. The scary parts of horror are always those that speak to real possibilities that we’d rather not think about.
