ABC Drabbles of Death - Y is for Yog-Sothoth

We reach the penultimate drabble in the ABC Drabbles of Death series and I couldn't finish the series without a tribute to the great H P Lovecraft. The letter 'Y' provides a perfect hook for such a tribute!

If you've not read the previous drabbles in the series yet then you'll find them all here for your enjoyment:

Y is for Yog-Sothoth

Imagination called up the shocking form of fabulous Yog-Sothoth—only a congeries of iridescent globes, yet stupendous in its malign suggestiveness. He is both time and space, yet imprisoned beyond the universe mankind foolishly believes inviolate.

Despite his exile he sees all and knows all. Those that discover the secrets of the hidden attract his attention. Unfortunately for them the fortunes of Yog-Sothoth suffer a fate so dread the horror stretches beyond imagination. Still he is worshipped by many dark beings and under countless names. Even the children of Cthulhu locked beneath the sea revere the grandparent of their creator.
