STORY IDEA: YOUR DOOR BELL RINGS AND ITS A PERSON FROM AN ALTERNATE UNIVERSE “I JUST WANT YOU TO KNOW THAT YOU ARE MY FAVORITE BOOK CHARACTER AND I KNOW HOW IT ENDS AND I WANNA CHANGE IT”
WHY DID YOU DO THAT TO ME
This kinda reminds me of Stranger Than Fiction.
It’s a good movie, you should watch it.
If you’ve never read The Yellow Wallpaper or had to for school you should do that.
The author suffered from psychosis but as a woman in the late 1800’s the “professional” attitude was that she was just a dumb silly woman and needed to rest in bed until she just got over it. She was outright forbidden from writing because it would be “too stimulating” to all those dumb hysterical womanly problems and she had to do it in secret just to cling to what sanity she could.
In response to this bullshit she finally wrote this brilliant short psychological horror story that will give you the fucking creeps in all sorts of ways, from the atmosphere and events to the story to the horrifying culture it reflects.
She sent a copy directly to her shitty-ass doctor who never responded and went on being a shithead until he died, but to many other people the story was a wake-up call and still considered a groundbreaking feminist work.
It was inspirational to horror writer’s like Lovecraft though I think the “feminist” part might have gone over his head. Also it is better than his stuff anyway.
(Art by Marlene Angeja, 1989)
This is one of my actual favorite peices of literature, and I dream of a world where this was acknowledged as the birth of western psychological horror. BECAUSE IT IS.
My english class two semesters ago covered The Yellow Wallpaper and I was so pissed because the professor (a dude) COMPLETELY glossed over the feminist commentary. I made sure to specifically mention it in his teaching evaluation at the end of the semester.
Anyway read it if you haven’t. I didn’t know it was considered an inspiration for Lovecraft and horror as a whole. That’s a pretty cool fact.
a bunch of moms are making letters+audio recordings of affirming, validating letters to queer/trans* people who don’t get that kind of support from their moms
i would say more about it but
im kind of busy in this puddle of tears on the floor so
In case any of my followers don’t have this kind of support from home…
This. Is. Beautiful.
