‾‾‾‾
Like a randy nun, I lead a quiet, sequestered life of piety and perversion. Like a cantankerous hag, I scorn the bustle of society and probably eat stray children. I am devoted to Krishna because he's a bigger, naughtier fiend than myself, which commands my respect, and I strive to serve him through transcendental immorality. I spend a lot of time idly scowling and looking at the ugly trees around my home. Also, I have a face, but it's not much to look at.

Disturbing Literature Challenge 

the-concealed-ambry:

There are quite a number of very nice themed reading challenges out there, but this isn’t one of them. The goal is simple: Read as many or as few books (fiction, non-fiction, biography or memoir, anything goes) as you wish containing elements from the list of themes below. The rewards are debatable: maybe you’ll learn something, maybe you’ll be more resilient, maybe you’ll be traumatized. Who knows? But you are a winner, whether you only read part of a single book, or whether you trudge the distance and go for all thirteen.

Slashes indicate and/or, and the themes are open to individual interpretation. You can go for the bleaker end of the spectrum, or you can use this list to seek out something harsh but uplifting, or you can have plain old fun. Be disturbed, or explore rough healing territory, or have a morally ambiguous spree, or progress as a more wise, jaded, or possibly monstrous person.

  • Incest
  • Child abuse
  • Rape
  • Genocide/Slavery/War atrocities
  • Demonic possession/Pacts with the devil/Blasphemy/Atheism
  • Cannibalism
  • BDSM/Torture
  • Age gap
  • Death (murder, violent accident, illness, suicide, necrophilia, decomposing corpses, take your pick)
  • Unusual sex/Kink/Fetish of your choice
  • Wild Card - Pick something horrific, offensive, or disturbing either in a broader societal sense or to you personally
  • BONUS: The Future is a Terrible Place - your pick in dystopic, post-apocalyptic, or other speculative visions of a world to come.
  • BONUS #13: Cults/Brainwashing/Stockholm Syndrome

"Ces peintures grivoises ont été commandées à François Boucher (1703-1770) par le Dauphin Louis, pour déniaiser son fils, le futur Louis XVI. Conservées par Napoléon III dans sa salle de bains des Tuileries, elles furent photographées à son insu par Lecadre. Tableaux, clichées et photos disparurent dans l’incendie des Tuileries de 1871."
