“My answer may seem overly simplistic and not terribly pragmatic,” the great creature replied. “It is only this. You have befriended me. I have never had a friend, and you are the finest of friends that I could have ever imagined. Most of my kind, as I have previously stated, do not utilize the sensibility known as compassion, and they see me as lesser for doing so. I struck out on my own to conduct scientific studies for the sake of science. But then I encountered you, and I felt that it would benefit us both were your mission to become my mission. I can certainly continue to collect samples during the course of our adventures, and you and I can serve as consultants for one another.”

Notes:
In this week's snippet, Yitzy answers Ketil's question regarding why Yitzy is interested in assisting him on his "potentially fruitless quest." Last week's snippet can be found here.

The story ended up being either a short novella or a long novelette. It is currently in the process of being formatted, and I am agonizing over finding or creating a suitable cover. It's difficult to find free-use Lovecraftian art. I am aiming for publication in January.

The Great Race of Yith is the creation of H.P. Lovecraft. Ketil Nagel and Yitzy Yithian are original characters created by Team Netherworld.

    1. I would say that this phrase sums this character up very well. Despite being eons old, he maintains a childlike view of the possibilities.

  3. I'm curious to know if they will continue their adventures together. Seems like a good enough plan.

  4. Yitzy seems very accommodating. I hope these two learn a lot from each other. (BTW, I had trouble leaving a comment, although when I came back everything was working. Maybe others had the same difficulties.)

    1. I always complain about WordPress not allowing me to leave comments, but it isn't like Blogger is a perfect system by any means!

  5. That creature sounds interesting and also independent. Enjoyed the excerpt!
