Being in high school is usually pretty hard, but being interested in the occult made high school even harder. If you showed any signs of the goth subculture or punk tendencies, everyone around you would continuously overreact to your choices. Between your grandmother constantly looking for signs of devil worship and your old-fashioned teachers suspecting you of dealing weed, it took a lot of gumption to strap those boots on and line those black lips perfectly. The Vice Principal followed you around to report the slightest dress code infraction, and your parents didn't even back you up when you got in trouble.
Luckily, your appearance made dealing with your peers a breeze. Most of your fellow students were too afraid of you hexing them into an F on the next test to mess with you. The ones who weren't scared were pretty decent people, which made it easier for you to find friends.
Even if you didn't dress like Marilyn Manson every day, everyone around you knew how goth you were. Let us help you discover what people thought of you and your rebellious self in high school. We bet you were more hardcore goth than you thought!
