I like dark stories because they are more thrilling, mysterious, and strangely alluring. Because of that, there is something deeply attractive about the darkness. Dark stories seem more real than any of the sugar-coated stories that are excessively optimistic. It enables me to venture into the abyssal id of the human mind. Dark stories give us access to the unfiltered side of our psyche that never sees the light of day due to the mandates of social conformity. To a degree, dark stories enable us to peer into the animalistic face of our true selves instead of the false masks we are forced to put on in order to fit in with “decent” society. Because of these factors, dark stories are far more appealing than stories about light ever will be.
