The Wonderful World of LiLi

An eccentric land of magic and whimsy

sixpenceee:
THE WORKS OF EDGAR ALLEN POE: Here’s a link to all his stories and poems. His macabre and dark approach to writing has touched many across the globe
THE WORKS OF H.P LOVECRAFT: Another gothic writer whose style is both suspenseful and vivid
THE LEGEND OF SLEEPY HOLLOW: Another classic, beware of the headless horseman 
THE TURN OF THE SCREW: A tale about a governess who becomes convinced that she and her charges are being stalked by ghosts.
THE MONKEY’S PAW: You probably have heard of this one. Be careful what you wish for. 
THE LOTTERY: It might not seem like a horror story, but once you realize what’s happening you will definitly be horrified. If you don’t understand here’s a site that will clear some things up
WHERE ARE YOU GOING, WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN: About a 15 year old girl’s encounter with a threatening but charismatic stranger. A popular dark tale.
THE SIGNAL MAN: By Charles Dickon’s, a railroad worker tells the story of a ghost that seems to appear to him as a premonition of some horrible railway tragedy
THE MORTAL IMMORTAL: Mary Shelley may have been known for Frankenstein, but here’s another dark tale by her. It’s the story of a man who wants to play God, but finds his sanity is the price
THE WOMAN IN BLACK: You probably have heard of the movie, but read the classic story behind it. Whenever she is seen, a child dies. 
BONUS: Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier: I read this for my Gothic Literature class in high school. I loved it. A dark novel with plenty of twists to keep you on the edge.

Omg The Turn of the Screw was my senior thesis. I should totally try to find that paper sometime…

Sandals on men? Not with socks, obviously.

Look at that last gif and tell me with a straight face that she wouldn’t make a great Harley. Like, comic Harley, not that animated series shit

NOPE. 

Republicans talking shit AGAIN. This @GOP tweet is the literal opposite of what they believe, campaign, and how they vote.

They know that no matter how outrageously they lie, their base will still believe them.

I reblogged this a couple weeks ago, but I’m reblogging it again because after sending that tweet out on September 1st, Republicans blocked equal pay (yet again) just two weeks later.

I remember when I used to do all nighters and party every weekend and get shit faced and go to parties and clubs with groups of random people I didn’t know and danced on stage and got so drunk I’d puke and act so stupid and now I’m all work, smoke, eat, sleep, repeat.
