5 for Friday, October 21, 2022: Dark Academia

Lit candles in a darkened room
Lights flicker as students shiver while studying in their dorms.
The darkening sky and falling leaves dry allude to shadowy forms.
Listening to rooks while hunched over their books, students turn the pages
It’s mid-semester, and their minds are sequestered, learning from the sages.

Bad poetry. What can I say? The weather is getting colder, the days are getting shorter, and it feels as if there aren’t enough hour in the day to do what needs to be done. In the spirit of the season, here are some collections from Dark Academia, which as far as I can tell, is just someone who found their niche by collection dark, dreary, or somber music, and turned it into a theme of sorts. Whoever they are, they’re one of my favorite people at this time of year.
