The Darkling Tag

The Darkling Tag

Good afternoon everyone!

This time I come with one of those famous “Tags” that are on the Internet. I found this one by chance a couple days ago and I found it curious.

I think it is an easy and funny way to find out things about each other and, as I haven’t talk much about myself on the blog I think it is a good way to tell you about myself.

If you are interested or curious keep reading, and if you want to do it too don’t forget to send my your answers!


Simple Questions:

What is your favourite candle scent?

Since before I can remember I’ve been obsessed with the vanilla scent, and even though I am more open to new scents nowadays it is still my favourite.

Do you have a favourite book?

I do! My all time favourite book is the Picture of Dorian Gray.

Are you a tea or coffee person?

TEA PERSON!!! I really hate coffee and I’ve never been able to take it (I think it smells nice though)

What is your favourite brand and colour of lipstick?

Diva Red from MAC Cosmetics.

What is your favourite perfume/cologne?

Nina from Nina Ricci (the cute red apple-shape one).

Do you have a celebrity crush?

Oh I do! Am I the only one who thinks that Tom Hiddleston is way too perfect to be human?

If you had to give up the colour black, what colour would you choose instead?

Dark red or purple I guess, but it will still be awfully hard for me.

If you could change your name to a stereotypical 90s/2000s gothy name, what would it be? 

I have no idea; I don’t think I’d ever change my name.

Curious fact: I used to hate my name with all my heart a couple years back.

What are your top three tips for surviving hot weather while black clad?

  1. Not going out during daytime.
  2. Huge brim hats.
  3. Always carrying a fan around.

What song will always make you happy (doesn’t have to be a goth band)?

If I have to chose just one then Federkleid from Faun, but I would say folk in general.

Are you active in the arts (ex. Play an instrument, paint, write, etc)?

Of course I am! I spend almost every second of my life writing or painting.

If you had a teacup or mug made inscribed just for you, what would you have it say?

“Our existence is a brief crack of light between too eternities of darkeness”

What is your number one non-gothy hobby?

My hobbies are writing, reading and painting, I don’t know whether ther are considered gothy or not.


Thought Provokers:

If you could be a supernatural creature, what would it be and why?

A witch, but I am one already so it’s ok 😉 And of course because they are mysterious, fascinating and can use magic.

What horror monster-based super power would you have? 

Monster-based super power?? I’d say time control but not sure if it’s included.

Do you feel confident or comfortable interacting with other Goths or gothy people (online or irl)? Why or why not?

Some days I don’t feel confortable interacting with humans at all! But it is kind of easy if they are goths due to some short of identification or sense of belonging.

Which is more important for a look: Great hair or great makeup?

Hair, always hair. I mean my hair is my favourite part of my body (and I am pretty terrible at make up).

Is there something you wish there was more of in your subculture?

The only thing I am missing is more places to go out at night.

Care to share an embarrassing story related to your “darkliness“?

The only thing I can think about is trying to find a specific piece of black clothing in my black-clothe-soaked wardrobe and not being able to. (I don’t think it’s embarrassing though)

How are you at DIY?

Never done one.

Quickly describe your ideal wedding.

An open-air ceremony in the middle of the forest with a beautiful princess-like black and white dress and a huge cake. And I am the one who choses the music!


Confessional (aka True or False):

I love watching cheesy romance films. FALSE. Never watch them, I really don’t enjoy them at all.

I ALWAYS remember to wash off my makeup at night. TRUE. I don’t wear that much makeup so it is not too hard to remove; besides it is really uncomfortable to leave it overnight.

I wear non-black pyjamas most nights. TRUE? None of my pyjamas are just black.

I still listen to a boy band that had disbanded years ago. FALSE. I’ve never listened to a boy band; I literally went from Disney songs to metal.

I think Andrew Eldritch is overrated. FALSE.

I don’t like vampires. FALSE. I love vampires as long as they don’t shine.

I don’t like clubs. FALSE.

I’m dating a goth/darkly-inclined person. TRUE. They say that opposites find attraction between them, but in my case this is not true. We are made for each other, two drops of water, two twin souls, and I love him!

I don’t enjoy graveyards. FALSE. I think they are nostalgically beautiful and very calmed places.

Blood makes me queasy. FALSE. I am ok with blood, what makes me queasy or even faint is seeing sharp or pointy objects piercing flesh.
