the seat of a headless princess is a lonely throne to own

the palace

castle and abandoned castle image clouds, silhouette, and castle image
is a cobwebbed Gothic castle with oubliette, labyrinth, & overgrown gardens filled with broken statuary & shabby topiaries. It used to float on a cumulus cloud, but I moved it to unspecified land.

the looks

Temporarily removed quotes, feelings, and feeling image
Daisy wilts in dissolution & wears a wig sometimes, at one point borrowing Louise Brooks's bob for a silent film cameo. "A halo of weeds & nettles laces her head, her visage scribbled over with rage & frustration ..."
beauty, photograph, and romantic goth image
Rose-on-the-Fur is a young crone with blue-black tar-silk tresses & a nefarious grin "rouged an immaculate crimson of the black dahlia."

the activities

broken, destroyed, and fucked image Temporarily removed
With "much weeping & gnashing of teeth," Daisy copes with excessive sensibilities by writing, tending the gardens as a metaphor for writing, & getting lost in the fogs & labyrinthine convolutions of her mind; she daily has lunch, tea, & dinner with Rose, who acts as châtelaine of the castle, plays around with paranormal powers, & conducts alchemical experiments in the dungeon.

inspirational quotes

Temporarily removed blackandwhite, fuck, and dodgeball image
bad vibes only

the closets

Temporarily removed Temporarily removed long hair image dog, illustration, and hair image
Daisy's contains skeletons & mannequins & other old things: "an old brown knit coat with belled sleeves, a soft faux-denim skirt, strapped gray ombré platform high heels, shabby disheveled twinsets, cardigans over pleated skirts, sensible but oversized sweaters." Rose-on-the-Fur manages to wrangle some wide sweeping skirts.

the attitudes

comic, goth, and jhonen vasquez image alone, b&w, and black and white image
Rose is a spiteful bitch in black. Sad & alienated is Daisy.

the cars

Temporarily removed Temporarily removed
Daisy walks or takes a taxi. Rose-on-the-Fur disappears from thin air & returns in a gilt coach.

social media popularity

art, black, and flower image why, grunge, and pale image
Daisy barely garners any notes/comments/likes. Rose runs several troll accounts on social media platforms that allow gore content, which she uses in her "labors at extracting essences of violent fancies & dramatic death-swoons, distilling them into potions for selling & drinking."

notes in the margins

background and wallpaper image grunge, hand, and painting image
but pampered wisps do not a cloth doll make (Rasputina's "Nozzle") why is Daisy forlorn why does she live with Rose why is Rose mean to her??? katabasis a self-imposed exile Daisy's false orphan state gives way to uncomfortable revelations about her identity. she clutches her chrysalis, a mourning veil. the cocoon swaddles her in ribbons. she finds herself molting, a renewal. the flare of a strutting peacock, its jewel-tones shimmering.
