markired’s aesthetics: mark & dark + n i g h t m a r e s
Headcanon: As a kid, Mark was afraid of the dark; he had nightmares of monsters living under his bed, of strange faces and drowning waters. It wasn’t before long that he met another boy, only slightly older than he was, who promised to protect him from the nightmares. The boy appeared only during the night, right when it got dark out, to which Mark came up with the perfect name for him.
As Mark got older, the nightmares persisted, but the Dark was never too far away.
