my favorite niche trope in media is teen boys at boarding school with a sprinkle of dark academia and gay thoughts

“Beauty is rarely soft or consolatory.
Quite the contrary. Genuine beauty is
always quite alarming.”

Francis Abernathy is such an icon. I mean, the second that man emerged from the bush he asked Henry if he can smoke a cigarette. They were waiting in a bush, to commit murder!!!!

I don't want a fucking job I want to be that elegant woman you see studying in the library all day with her cat and a cup of coffee, poring over ancient texts with a maddening half-smile on her face.

Dark academia is 90% introverts who resort to murder when exposed to society.

Forgive me, for all the things I did but mostly for the ones that I did not.

No, you are an alcoholic. I am a child of Dionysus. We are not the same.

black as ink, the silence is deafening
and it's so hard to look into distant lights
and feel your heart solitary way from mine

The feminine urge to not finish a book because I'm emotionally attached to it and don't want it to be over.

When Oscar Wilde wrote: "Behind every exquisite thing that existed, there was something tragic". And then Kait Rokowski said:"Nothing ever ends poetically. It ends and we turn it into poetry. All that blood was never once beautiful. It was just red.". But also Donna Tartt wrote: "Death is the mother of beauty." and "Beauty is terror. Whatever we call beautiful, we quiver before it.".
