Spooktober is a 31 day event of coming up with original horror ideas based on prompts my writing group argues over. These are my entries.
SPOOKTOBER DAY #5 — Lovecraft, Ian
TITLE: Brute Fetish
PREMISE: A trans fella is attempting to reconcile his religious feelings with his lived reality, in the hardest way possible. He’s becoming a priest, at a vaguely liberal church that’s not quite 100% on him. His girlfriend is cool with it because Jesus got her off the heroins. His mom is instead reconciling her own religious feelings, with the help of a stone fetish of an obscure aeon, a fang-grinned undead face over a mass of tentacles. If a community of Christ can’t bring her daughter into accord with nature, than an older god will suffice.
HORROR ELEMENT: Transphobias, lovecraft nonsense, you know the drill.
