I've finally done it /lit/, I managed to get tuberculosis. The most romantic, patrician end is within my grasp.

I wish romantic aesthetics like wasting away from consumption would come back into fashion, it really feels right to me. I know I will eventually die from it, but it's a better ending than most people get. I've been reading a lot of romantic lit to get in the right mindset.

What /lit/ ways have you considered? The only other good one I could think of was opiates, but that's kind of gauche I think- I prefer the wasting gradual erasure thing that TB offers. If I was a girl I think I would like to be a miraculous maid, but it's not as romantic for guys I think.

Funny thing is consumption is one of the largest killers nowadays, it just means something else.

You could also try Byron's bloodletting > sepsis > fever > death route. A bit more dramatic than coughing into a hanky while you shuffle off your mortal coil.

I'm going to blow my fucking head off with a gun. Is that Hemmingwayesque enough for ya?

I had no idea africans and poor inner city micks from the 1920s were so patrician. Dying by joing up with ISIS is probably one of the last authentically Romantic options left.

>implying Hemingway was a romantic

>>7566627
heh. Hadn't thought of that.
Yeah, but dramatic is sort of the opposite of the way I want to go.

>>7566629
You're looking at things wrong, the romance isn't automatic it's a mindset.

>>7566628
tacky

>Can suicide be beautiful? Can it be an art? Slitting the wrists heavenward, while nodding off to dope as Béla Bartók’s String Quartet plays lonesome in the background is achingly tranquil. Falling free from the highest tower in a small town on a cloudless, smoky night could be artistic. But the brutal self hanging in some malodorous motel closet at one in the afternoon is not anything of art, but a burning painting, alone and never seen but critiqued by the supposed fanatical perception of others. The wet paint scalded, dripping off fumes of desperation and acerbic sleepwalking life that never came to be. Messy despair. A handgun to the head with one last satisfied smile? Thematic and musical. A logical end to befuddlement and ire.

Too bad it's so easy to treat now. Unless you got the antibiotic resistant strain then you certainly lucked out. If you didn't don't worry it's pretty easy to create that strain in your body. Just make sure to take the medication for about 3/4 of the required time and then stop.

I've tried it many times with IV heroin, was brought back twice from being clinically dead, each time just under a minute. And now I'm STILL alive, and on top of everything a heroin addict.

Yeah, I've got got a huge blister-pack of hydrazide here, not really sure what I'm gonna do but I definitely don't want to be cured so I have to be careful.

>>7566890
desu that's pretty romantic

You are on the right path to dying like a rock star, nothing like drifting off into opiate oblivion in a motel room in L.A. in the middle of your prime.

Or go full Camus and die in a car accident while also permanently ill

I wish I had tuberculosis. How did you get it? I'm really jealous of those writers who got it and got to live the based NEET live in some qt sanatorium somewhere.

I think the PKK is the most romantic option in Syria/Iraq.

oh fuck me I just got over wanting to kill myself

don't do this to me /lit/

Isn't tuberculosis a curable disease nowadays?

The Milton way.
He died aged 65 but I'd say atleast 50. Fuck all the dying in your 20's shit... No one is a master of anything in there 20's.

>''Milton's magnum opus, the blank-verse epic poem Paradise Lost, was composed by the blind and impoverished Milton from 1658 to 1664''

I'd say the most ''romantic'' way to go is dying in poverty and your masterpiece published posthumously
