Author’s Notes: This was written for the [livejournal.com profile] hogwarts_elite "introduce a villain from another fandom" challenge and I'm finally posting it in my journal. The story mixes J.K. Rowling’s world with elements from the stories of H. P. Lovecraft and R. E. Howard, some of which later found their way into the Marvel universe. The villain I introduce is Father Set, accompanied by his children. Although I make use of Mythos lore in general, I particularly draw on The Nameless City and The Curse of Yig. It is not necessary to have read these stories in order to read this one, however. I was inspired by two drawings of Voldemort in Egypt by the amazing Lightpoint: In Search of Time and Bazaar. I must also recommend The Parselmouth, a fun website which renders words into “Parseltongue”. I had great fun getting the application to translate such phrases as: “Iä! Iä! Fhtagn! Tekeli-li!” into snake language. Creepily, the programme actually translates “Yig” into something frighteningly close to “Set”.

That is not dead which can eternal lie, and with strange eons even death may die... )
