Would Smaugbo (Bilbo x Smaug) from The Hobbit movies count as an example under Fan Works? I know Smaug isn't really that eldritch, but he's an enormous dragon bigger than a Boeing 747, and Bilbo's just a hobbit.

Wait, what? There's nothing in the description that says examples can't be humanoid. Why were all those deleted? Did I miss something?

Can someone explain to me how raven from teen titans is a deconstruction?

Specifically the entry on this page states: "A violent deconstruction in Teen Titans, where the Demon lord Trigon mated with human female Arella Roth. He raped her, did this only so she could give him a child that would serve as his portal to the real world, and she almost committed suicide after the act. The child grew up to become the superheroine Raven, who then focused on preventing her father from succeeding. Trigon himself is the offspring of The Devil and a human woman (in Another Dimension). "

And what about "Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters"? Would that be where Colonel Brandon, pictured as a half-man, half-squid mutant would be thought of as "spawn of Cthulu?" He does romance Marianne Dashwood though.

I think the page should spell out more clearly what separates this from Boldly Coming and Interspecies Romance. Both of those pages specifically mention starfish aliens in the examples, so it's not the fact that a nonhumanoid is involved; and my understanding of the difference between nonhumanoid and properly-Lovecraftian creatures largely rules out "romance" as a possible occurrence. (For example, it's not a word I'd use for anything found in the Goddess of the Black Fan everything2 writeup.)

There's also Completion, which doesn't involve any humans.

Just found image that demonstrate this trope nicely. You really don't know if it's to laugh, heartwarming or scream.

Can we use it?

Try and get permission from the artist, and strip out the picture frame, and yeah, we can use it.

Reminds me of some years ago when Jerry Springer guest starred on "The Simpsons" where one of the tentacled aliens was on "Jerry Springer" and Marge had Maggie, who in that story was a half-human, half-tentacled-alien baby.

Link to Cindy Borjas was removed, on account that the image is not actually by that artist. I don't see how we could know that, seeing as cindyborjas claims copyright for the image, nor is there a note for who the actual artist is. Just putting it here for reference.

Type the word in the image. This goes away if you get known.
