Who am I?
My name's Ana, I'm a writer based on Brazil currently working on a fantasy novel as well as a History degree. I'm heavily inspired by several classic and Dark Academia novels, and my blog is a homage to all things i find dear. In 2020, I created the first Dark Academia channel on Youtube, where I post about literature, art, philosophy and more.
My top picks
Some cool stuff to check out
Hannibal (TV show)
A mix of murder mystery with drama and beautiful aesthetics, this reborn version of Hannibal Lecter has beautiful writing and cinematography and loads of queer representation - plus Mads Milkkelsen, so yeah, definitely amazing.
Eerie music that will leave you feeling wistfully wishing you were a witch living in an isolated forest, she's a genius.
Donna Tartt (writer)
Do I even need to say it? Amazing stories, ultra realistic characters and writing that grabs you and never lets you go.
Many paths lead people to who I am
"most days i am a museum of things i want to forget, of touches that remain burned onto my skin, of words that are still written inside my eyelids. i am a collection of broken parts and scrapes of paper, a memorial of stained glass windows and doorless rooms. why am i like that? i do not know. maybe because my parents never really asked if i wanted to share my feelings, or because i thought i would be stronger if i kept it all inside of me, if the only ones to hear my whispers were the ink and the pen."
THE NEW ACADEMIA
Literature, art, philosophy, aesthetics, video essays, reviews, and many others subjects can define this channel that focuses itself in the Dark Academia community and its branches, now with weekly videos.
