About

Wunderkammer. Stupor mundi.

***** This is a bizarre/macabre/surreal/arty/hermetic/medieval/creepy blog. I try to keep things weird around here.

***** "Unicorn skulls" is a reference to "Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World" by Haruki Murakami. I also like Nabokov and David Mitchell and, well, Georgette Heyer. You should read "A Distant Mirror" by Barbara Tuchman if you like my Tumblr.

***** Blanket warning: I try not to post images that strongly imply rape, and never real-life gore (I usually instantly unfollow for that, tbh), but I do post a lot of eyes, strange animated gifs, exposed anatomical structures, blood, etc., so this is not a blog to follow if you need a lot of specialized trigger warnings. Not because I don't care, but because you would probably be bothered by the majority of what I post, and there's so much along those lines that even if I tried to tag it all, I'd miss stuff. Nudity does get tagged "nsfw".

***** I don't use Tumblr for fandom blogging, but I follow some fandom blogs, mostly Death Note, mostly L. I'm not into any of the fandom's popular ships, and I don't think of changes made for the anime as being canon.
