I love “A Shadow Over Innsmouth” it’s one of my favorite stories. The idea of this strange small town being taken over by monstrous forces and the inhabitants forced to breed with monsters. I find that creepy. And not just because of the story’s similarities with numerous small towns in Utah where I live. Completely unrelated… I swear.
Look just don’t let your car stall out when you are driving through Aurora, Utah. That’s all I’m saying.
Anyway, I would assume that in Innsmouth being a single person would be… a problem. You probably have a lot of peer pressure to find yourself a nice fish, frog, or frog/fish to settle down with and start pumping out babies. (Again, the similarities to Utah are staggering)
But what do you do with some of the more wall flowerish residents of your town? You can’t have them walking around single, flaunting their happiness and disposable cash in your face all day. Hell no! They gots to get hitched!
Enter the Innsmouth Dating Game. The perfect way to make sure there are no excessively happy single people running around not contributing to the cause of the Elder Gods. Also I think it would be highly amusing to watch.
Like watching a slow motion train wreck but with more tentacles and flying fluids.
