Dagon by Onikaizer Dagon by Onikaizer
So I have been a H.P. Lovecraft kind of fan, and I read "Dagon" a little while back, so I decided to practice something more or less fast with that theme on mind. For me, Lovecraft's creatures and gods are conceptually living creatures, ruled by biological principles, but with certain attributes, namely the hability to alter the human brain functions, driving to insanity those who come in contact whit the thoughts of the elder gods.
Who wouldn't go crazy, having seen a god in the middle of the ocean and not been able to prove it to anybody?

Subnautica's Reaper Leviathan and Sea Dragon have nothing on Lovecraft.

Is this what the end of the story was? I hope it is, so I can finally rest knowing what the hell happened!

The end of the story: The marine heard a noise coming from his door probably one of Dagon's Deep Ones or Dagon himself that came after him, and then he panicked and jumped through a window to kill himself.

Dagon is the avatar creature of one of the Elder ones from Necronomicon. He sleeps in the deepest oceans awaiting the elder ones return.

Just got two books of Lovecraft's. "The Call of Cthulhu and Other Weird Stories" and "The Thing on the Doorstep."

Finished Dagon and I'm taking a break because I usually can devour a book the size of those in about five hours.

Holy cow, the story's crazy (crazy awesome, and just plain crazy), but this is just as amazing. Good job!

When it comes to what gives the Mythos its sanity-stripping fear, it isn't just what you see, but what you can't see as well. People can look at a painting of Cthulhu and say "That's not scary!", but the true scariness comes from imagining yourself seeing something like Dagon or the Flying Polyps firsthand and right in front of you in real life.

If something like that happened to me....*shudder*

Love it, love the story.

One nit pick: the "Dagon" is not a god, but worshipper of the Gods the monolith is honoring.
