Aspects of Darkness

This post does a great job of explaining what makes a story dark, when to recommend or not recommend such stories for different types of readers.  When I say "dark," I usually mean a combination of those and/or other elements, because if it's purely one thing -- such as "gritty" -- then I'm more likely to say that in particular.  *chuckle*  The show Dark Matter is well and truly named; it hits all the listed aspects at one time or another.
