The Erudite Comedy- Part 1

The sun dipped below the horizon as I approached the base of Mount University. Pausing for a breath, I dared a terrified backward glance. The thick, dark forest spread out behind me; although I had a penchant for nature, I knew this was a different beast.

I realized that this theater of madness known as school isn’t so different from that of a Lovecraftian tale(or horror, to be accurate). So I decided to investigate this little theory.   So, what does constitute a Lovecraftian horror? Well according to… Continue reading Lovecraft Meets High School: A Deconstruction
