I just want to say some words. First things first, Dark Academia and the subgenres of it are a large community and they expect all humanity. That means it doesn't matter who you are, your race, gender, sexuality, rights or wrongs, etc. If you have the feeling of studying, reading, admiring the art and artists themselves, count yourself too. We all love you and ready to have you dear.

Second thing is, you can mix all the subgenres and you don't have to be only one. We don't have to belong anywhere or everywhere. We can mix the things, you love wearing the darkest tones while watching the sunset on the shore, this is you, madam/sir!

That's all, thank you for tuning in! I hope we all can see sunny days soon without this hate and violence again. As always "Books, not guns; culture, not violence." Take care!
