Mercy of the Mi-Go

"A disturbed woman visits her therapist, and tells him of the strange recurring nightmare she has.

"In it, she is walking alone down a darkened street when strange, multi-colored lights apper in the sky.  The next thing she knows, she is in some disturbing room, that almost looks like it was grown from some living thing. 

"To her horror she finds she is totally nude, and can't move!  From the darkness she feels some strange being approaching her.

"Straining, she manages to turn her eyes just enough to see some hulking creature that looks like a cross between a monstrous spider and bat!  With a scalpel in its pincer, it carefully removes the top of her skull!

"Meanwhile, a strange tentacle descends from the ceiling and attaches itself to her own belly button.  Some strange fluid begins to flow down the tentacle, and she feels her own womb expand with some squirming... THING... inside!!

"Right then I always wake up!", she tells her therapist.

"Don't worry", he says.  "Here, have this prescription filled and the nightmares should fade away in time."

She takes the prescription and leaves the office, but can't help wondering in the back of her mind why there was a strange scent of mold in the room, and did she hear a faint.... buzzing... in the doctor's voice?

Going for more of a 'Horror' theme with this image.

Note: the following contains SPOILERS for one story by H.P. Lovecraft, and some of the background for the game Delta Green, so be warned.

The Mi-Go are an alien species from the Cthulhu Mythos: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mi-go

In the short story "The Whisperer in Darkness", the Mi-Go abduct humans and extract their brains, storing them in metal cylinders that keep them alive and aware: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Whisperer_in_Darkness

In a pencil and paper Modern Conspiracy/Horror RPG called Delta Green, its actually the Mi-Go that are behind the 'UFO' abductions of people, having created the 'Greys' as a cover for their own presence/involvement.

Delta Green actually weaves in details of the Cthulhu Mythos very well with modern day Conspiracy Theories, and I highly recommend it for just interesting reading, and source material for similar themed RPGs, even if you don't use the rule system in that game:
