Notes: My very first attempt at writing seriously in English. Because Zoe kept rambling on how terrible my Fanfiction is. Darker than my usual work, which is saying something. If I don’t go to hell for this, I’ll never will. This fanfic was inspired by many things, one of them being hieronymousb's awesome story, "Wasteland"; reading one of my favorite Poe stories, "The Black Cat"; listening to Apocalyptica's "Unforgiven" and generally, rereading my essay, "Desire, A Gateaway To Insanity", from which the quotes between scenes come from.
