Dark, beautiful, eclectic, irreverent, occasionally silly...
Here, you can expect to see art, books, quotes, old things, illustrations, vampires (but never any that sparkle), cemeteries, castles, cathedrals, miscellaneous silliness, science nerdiness, vintage ephemera, memento mori, and other oddities. I will also most-assuredly reblog anything posted having to do with Prague.

Wallpaper #34 Moon forest | created by threeyzmonkeys
I saw this image all over the place yesterday, and yes I recognize I am very annoyingly broken-record-like about this one thing but I couldn’t use it until I found some sort of source.
…We tried to turn away; but still
Above we heard her sorrow thrill;
And those that slept, they dreamed of ill
And dreadful things:
Of skies grown red with rending flames
And shuddering hills that cracked their frames;
Of twilights foul with wings;
And skeletons dancing to a tune;
And cries of children stifled soon;
And over all a blood-red moon
A dull and nightmare size.
They woke, and sought to go their ways,
Yet everywhere they met her gaze,
Her fixed and burning eyes.
-The Vampire, Conrad Aiken
