  1. Cliches exist because they tend to be true. I’m Gothic too and I love the same things you do. I’m not sure if a bit misanthropy. I prefer to believe that certain situations will bring out the worse in humanity. I have to hope.

    You forgot Anne Rice and our eternal love for her. lol

    • Yes indeed, I forgot Anne Rice, and all good vampire fiction.

      Hope is good to have, but my in my experience, although individual humans that I love are nice, kind people, the human race is just not worth my respect in general. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a compassionate person, and I always help people where I can, I just think humans as a whole are disgusting.
