  • This past Monday was World Goth Day, an opportunity for goths of all creeds and subcultures to come together and celebrate the goth community as a whole. That idea took many of us down a trip to memory lane: specifically, to the early 2000s, when we were in high school and expressing ourselves with goth music and fashion meant we were cutting edge. As we tossed around recollections of saving up for a lace-trimmed skirt at Hot Topic or an album by The Cure, we wondered: what if some of our favorite authors were in high school at the same time? How would they act? How would they look?

    The following, friends, are our best guesses at how six beloved authors would make out as teenaged goths.

  • Ah English class, where we learned how to write an essay, edit our grammar, and NEVER EVER use CliffsNotes when we haven’t done the reading (like, ever). Most of all, we learned about the work of some of the great authors of the English language. Time goes by, but these timeless tips from some of the English canon’s biggest names remain excellent advice on writing.

  • We haven’t seen the lifeguards of Baywatch since Mitch Buchannon – on the road to recovery from amnesia – returned to Hawaii to get married (again!) in the made for TV movie Baywatch: Hawaiian Reunion. A lot has changed since 2003, and to celebrate the lifeguards’ return to the screen in the latest Baywatch movie, we’ve asked them to recommend their favorite beach reads. After all, they have a lot of time to kill in that lifeguard chair.

  • Tomorrow is Be a Millionaire Day. Strange holiday, but hey, it gives these fictional millionaires a chance to pass on some of their wisdom to you. It’s up to you to decide if it’s advice worth following.

  • What would our fictional friends be without their favorite diner? If you screamed “NOTHING!” at your screen -- you’re absolutely right. In the spirit of Twin Peaks: The Return coming out Sunday, we’ve rounded up the best fictional diners on the planet.

     

  • If you’re anything like us, you’ve been making heart eyes at the Everything, Everything trailer for the last few months. And while we’re busy mentally matching scenes from the book with frames from the trailer, Amandla Stenberg is busy making more movies based on our favorite books.
