So, I’ve discovered an interesting Mythos subgenre that I never knew I needed in my life, which can basically be summed up at “Just because you’re an eldritch horror doesn’t mean you can’t also be a big damn hero.” Here’s a well done piece of mythos+MCU fanfiction that I utterly loved: The Miskatonic Project

I’m less surprised by my realization than by the fact that a story like this exists, and I’d love to see more. I’m also reminded of my other favorite type of mythos story – mythos urban fantasy (which is my best description for Ruthanna Emrys’ brilliant novella The Litany of Earth and its equally excellent sequel, the novel Winter Tide (which has a sequel coming out in a few months).

As anyone who has ever looked at my mythos SF game Eldritch Skies should know, I love the Cthulhu Mythos, but vastly prefer versions of it that are pretty distant from horror.
