Curious me would love to know what Gothic & related fandoms people are requesting for Yuletide. Perhaps folks who are requesting Gothicky fic, and who feel so inclined, could link to their letters on this post? (Not that I'm nosy or anything -- obviously not!)

Everything changes for the better and for the worse. Each takes a more active role in their fate as they fight to keep Dracula away from Lucy, and the darkness closes in around them.

And since Crimson Peak (2015) fits our gothic horror/romance theme, here’s the fanfic I wrote for Yuletide 2015.

Let The Shadows Become Your Shroud (33269 words) by calliopes_pen
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Crimson Peak (2015)
Rating: Mature
Warnings: Graphic Depictions Of Violence

Characters: Edith Cushing, Thomas Sharpe, Lucille Sharpe, Alan McMichael
Additional Tags: Horror, Gothic Romance, Alan shouldn't play with ouija boards, Possession, Ghosts, Vague References of Past Canon Abuse, Friendship, Exorcisms, Supernatural Elements, Blood, Hurt/Comfort, Mind Control, When Ghost Moths Attack, extremely vague reference to canon incest, When Ghost Hunts Go A Bit Wrong, Precarious mental state eroded further in death, Mental Maze
Summary: Two years after the events of the film, Alan and Edith are married. Now that Allerdale Hall has collapsed into the clay, Lucille’s ghost is free to seek revenge against them…but Thomas knows what his sister is planning and will provide them with aid no matter how dangerous things become.

No matter how terrifying it becomes for the living, as souls are imperiled by the grasp of the dead.

Welcome to [community profile] hidden_passages! This community was set up to give people a place to discuss anything that relates to gothic horror and/or gothic romance throughout literature, television, and film over the decades (or centuries, in the case of the literature).

Feel free to post discussions of whatever falls under that umbrella. If you wish to post a review and are uncertain if something is too new and therefore don’t wish to spoil anyone, then kindly post it behind a cut tag just to be on the safe side.

The rules (which I will copy/paste to the user info momentarily):

-Please use a cut tag on longer posts, so that you might spare reading lists for other people.
-No bashing of other people’s interests.
-All fanworks are welcome as long as they relate to Gothic Horror/Romance fandoms.
-Please put NSFW/large graphics/gifs/icons other than teasers/embeds/spoilers under a cut.
--No RPF allowed.
-As there was a mild issue with anonymous Russian spam in the comments of another group I ran over on Livejournal, I have currently set this group to screen anonymous comments. They will be unscreened as quickly as possible.

Feel free to post, and have fun!

If, at any point in time, there is something like a spam attack in the comments of any post and I don't immediately spot it, feel free to contact me via PM, and I'll clean it up.
