Famous authors while naming characters
Jane Austen: “I am going to create a character who is an avant-garde of elegance and is such a pleasant,lovely creature that even the heroine looks up to her and (in a high-pitched, lilting voice) I am going to name her Jane.”
On the other hand, Fyodor Dostoevsky: “ I am going to create the most wretched, ugliest, womanizing buffoon that is a horrible father and is, without a doubt, most rotten man of the rogues and (in a rather deep, husky, lilting tone) I am going to name him Fyodor.”

How beautiful it is to bond with someone over literature. You share with them why you feel, what you feel about a story; they share with you their own perspective of it. Theories and concepts, interpretations, presumptions and definitions. You both create a new, your own version of the story, that may be a little different than others but that would be because it would be all you and them. It would be like adding more beautiful pieces of decoration to an already beautiful art studio, like adding more little trees to a forest; it may not make a difference for everyone else but for you, it would be everything - a world hidden away from the rest of the universe.

Pretending to be a guest in my Asian household ☕️….
Jane Austen really is unparalleled, when you come to think of it. Her writing is an amalgam of wit, humor and sass and it’s a perfect trilogy. I really haven’t come across anyone who resembles Austen but I think close to her is Edith Wharton minus the humor but that woman is also very piquant. (currently reading The Age of Innocence) Also I’ve been wondering why I’m coming across so much infidelity content like The Great Gatsby, The Age of Innocence, Anna Karenina, Penthouse etc. anyways
QOTD: What is your comfort book? 📓

Can we get this straight for once??? Like Latin and Greek are dark academia languages because they are classical but like have you ever considered Arabic,Persian or Urdu or other languages of the East? If you dark academics found out about the ghazals of Ghalib or the poems of Faiz, you’d die in an instant !!! That’s how good they are !!!
Let’s make dark academia more inclusive because us Asians and Easterners can’t really learn Latin or Greek and if you are looking for romance, don’t miss out on the greatest treasures of the world !!!

I recently read a post somewhere about how the "best" dark Academia life would be everything Western Eurocentric. So, here's my edition -
• Learning any ancient language from around the world - Latin, Sanskrit, Greek, Roman, Arabic, Tamil, Bengali, German
• wearing Coats, Chicken designed Kurtis, Dark shades of clothes, browns, Oxfords and Kolhapuris, Shiffon sarees, Bindis, Turbans
• Read and write prose, poetry, Dohe (for reference see Saint Kabir of North India), Haikus, Plays, Vaakh (for reference see Lal Ded of Kashmir, India), Philosophy, Ancient literature
• Learn how to play Piano, Harp, Santoor, Harmonium, Rabab
• Be Straight, Bi, Gay, Ace, Pan, Demi, Trans, Queer or anything else that you feel defines you.
• Go to Museums, Historical Monuments and societies, Parliament buildings
• maybe have a research file on some people you may want to murder?
Something that will definitely NOT make the best dark Academia life?
EXCLUSION AND GATEKEEPING!
I make the rules.
