    For English, we are going to have to write a Gothic story in the Victorian style but the thing is, I am not sure how to write in a Gothic OR Victorian style! I was wondering if some people could give me some ideas on themes to base my story on, perhaps some short examples of Gothic stories in Victorian style, etc. Anything to help me

    hahaha I would write something realistic and slightly mystical, kind of like Edgar Allen Poe's the Raven

    I would ignore the "Victorian style" - you're not a writer so your teacher shouldn't be expecting you to write in such a style.

    Themes in a Gothic story include; doom, horrible/bad/depressing weather (pathetic fallacy), dungeons, blood, murder in cold blood, ghosts and ghouls, demons, vampires, monsters and beasts. A lot of superstitious stuff. The antithesis of religion.

    I don't know what year you are in so I won't go into unnecessary detail if you're in year 8.

    But above, is the gist of what common things you'd find in a Gothic story.
