The Author

Emily “Luna” Ahlquist is a wannabe web developer from the UK. She’s been writing for as far back as she can remember and doesn’t know how to stop. She lives at her home in the East Midlands with her cat.

The Name

Obtained by stuffing a bunch of stereotypically “gothic” words into a Python script and filtering the results. It’s meant to be a parody of “Scarlet Devil Mansion”, the space-bending house from Touhou Project. There’s probably some inspiration from the book House of Leaves in there too.

The Site

Written in Markdown and a little bit of Sass, it’s built into regular HTML and CSS files with Jekyll and Liquid. It’s open source and you can find it on GitHub, where it’s hosted free of charge thanks to GitHub Pages.
