The Dormant Shoggoth Embryos of Dr. Lake by Legiongp The Dormant Shoggoth Embryos of Dr. Lake by Legiongp
The Dormant Shoggoth Embryos of Dr. Lake:

Of all the objects acquired by our artifact hunters, this is considerably one of the most dangerous.
Collectors of the strange may remember the doomed Pabodie Expedition to Antarctica in 1930–31, in which only two of the party's researchers returned. One of the survivors, William Dyer, Professor Emeritus of Geology at Miskatonic University told a tale of madness and monsters in efforts to cancel a follow up trek to Antarctica by the Starkweather-Moore Expedition.
His partner, Dr. Lake, a professor of Biology from Miskatonic University, came back a changed man. He was haunted by the things he had seen and experienced, never speaking of them to anyone. Upon his death his beneficiaries came upon a vault safe hidden behind a bookcase in his study. In it was a loaded pistol, a stack of badly faded black and white photos of fantastical vistas, and a strangely bulging canvas backpack. The backpack was from the Pabodie Expedition. Inside were many strange spheres attached to star shaped bases with a neatly folded note on top. It read:
" To Whom It May Concern,
God help me, but I was a scientist first. The horror I witnessed like a black train of Armageddon roiling through that tunnel. It haunts me today, but not as much as what I brought back with me. There were so many of them there, cold, still, gleaming with life as one could not imagine. Shoggoth embryos, as real as the ink on the pages of the Necronomicon. I knew they existed now. How would we as a race have any hope of surviving if we could not study them, learn their undoing? I was a scientist first, and brought home what could be our salvation, or our annihilation. I have lived my life without action, too horrified by the memory of the things to do harm or good. I leave these sleeping giants with you now. I hope that you will have the bravery and skill to make use of these most evil abominations before the poles melt, and they are free..."
Our company does not recommend tampering of any kind.

Are the Shoggoth Embryos actually part of a Lovecraft story? I'm kind of new to the Lovecraftian universe.
And amazing work, I must add.

Sort of. I continue the story At The Mountains of Madness a bit, and add these guys. Read the description for my little bit of story.

Gotcha.  And Mountains of Madness is where Shoggoth originates from right?

Yes. A long read, but great. I reread it with google handy so I could fully understand all the scientific references, and it made the story even more real. A masterpiece.
