jealous theo is funny and all because thats what we see for like a fifth of the book but imagine jealous boris. i just KNOW this bitch would be so dramatic and give a death glare to anyone that dare flirt with theo for the next 5-6 business months.

Does such a thing as ‘the fatal flaw’ that showy dark crack running down the middle of a life exist outside literature? I used to think it didn’t. But now I think it does. I think mine is this: the morbid longing of the picturesque at all costs. Donna tart, a secret history

Borrow books, share pdfs, email ebooks. Understand that academia is expensive. Make it more accessible, help someone gain knowledge. Dismantle the disparity with second-hand books and hand-me-downs. Share. Share. Share.

reading a book isn't enough i want the book to, as julian said, consume me, devour me, unstring my bones. then spit me out reborn.

being and dressing dark academia, looking mysterious, having hyper fixations on topics you like and finding dark topics interesting but when they get to know you, you are an optimistic, romantic person with a sunny disposition is my kind of dark academia.
