Silhouette of immorality. Theory of decadence. The countdown of genesis. Desire of the tainted.
To be free from this curse of fate. To escape from a lifetime of torment.
So to one, what would 'dead marionette' means? Does the meaning brings about the answer one seeks? The redemption one searches? Or the regret of one's mistakes?

- Working title has been changed to "Through the Art of Loving".
“In a castle long forgotten, a sleeping princess awaits for a true love’s kiss.” “...a true love’s kiss?” “A kiss bestowed by only one who can make your heart sings and your body feels alive.” “…someone like Big Brother and Brother Conrad?” “Even more, my sweet prince.” “Even more-” a small frown marred his forehead as the young boy of eight wistfully thought. “Someone like…Papa Weller to Mama?” “Why him and not your father?” Thoughtfully the boy frowned against. A slight blush dusted his cheeks and nose while his eyes shyly glanced at the smiling young woman. “Because he treats Mama like the other Papas do. He’s kind to me and Brother Conrad – Calia?” “Will there be someone like Papa Weller for me?”

- Profile of a puppet without heart -
: dead marionette :
In contrary to the meaning above, dead marionette is very much alive and full of heart. To others, her visage might be nothing more but blank looks and harsh stares, but this is how she guards herself from the painful reality. Oh, she is not without friends. In fact, dead marionette has plenty. The truth is, dead marionette is a shy and introverted girl who wishes for nothing more than to speak her mind. And through the art of writing, she is able to do that.
Her friends are surprised to find this shy little girl to be...well, not shy at all. Many have remarked that on the first appearance, she is shy and might even have the famous 'lost puppy' look. But upon second glance and a conversation or two, they were intrigued to discover this little girl to be full of cheerfulness and joy, a direct and obvious contrast to her outlook. In her case, the quote 'appearances can be deceiving' to be very true.
Now the layers have been peeled - from a blank, yet shy outlook to a cheerful personality. The final layer to dead marionette is soon to be uncovered. The final layer that is shown right here. A shy outlook to a cheerful disposition, and to a very angst writing. Now angst would be a too harsh of a word to be calling dead marionette's writings, but that would be the word she calls it for now. To her, cheerfulness can be quite mundane. In her life, everywhere she goes, this very emotion is everywhere. But this very emotion helps her in her writing. She finds writing about lost love, hopeless even, to be intriguing. True, this might label her as a romantic, but she cares not for labels. If this is what she find interesting, so be it.Oh, she does likes a little fluff or so.
Things that help her in her writing would be her ever essential and most powerful tool of all, the music she listens to. Her friends, and even her parents, find her somewhat strange to be listening to songs from a different language. Japanese, to be precise. But not just any songs would do. The songs she listens to would have to be of a more powerful level; hard rock. Visual kei, as many would know, plays a role in dead marionette's life. In her birth country, society would laugh at the very mention of this type of culture. Yes, society could be so cruel. Many would not understand why men of understandable IQ would go so far to wearing dresses or even look feminine. But that, as dead marionette would always and forever remind her dear friends, is the way this culture goes. True, many would look real feminine and even act as one, but in real life, they are never that way. But let us veer away from this painful reminder. To name a few of those that would forever leave an impression to her; they would be the GazettE, Phantasmagoria (a pity that they would be 'sealed' on a particular date, and a date so close to dead marionette's own date of birth), D, DespairsRay and finally Dir en Grey. Aside from these visual kei bands, one very impressive rocker had always been her 'god of rock'. And that would Gackt Camui. His songs are actually what helped her to write. The words, the meanings and even the melody.
To those who wish to know more of dead marionette or even ask of her opinions and such, she is available via three ways. Email: email@example.com. Instant messaging: firstname.lastname@example.org (dead marionette is only available during the night, close to midnight in some cases).
