One should always be a little improbable...
ok, so only two of those are actually in my real name.

"Excuse me... Im not meant to be here..."

I'm a delicate gorey esque grey flower, named after a poet and a tragic character

I'm the screamer/singer and bass player for Bury Me In Black

I'm the lost dandy, traipsing through eras trying to find a way back to my own.

I belong in a steampunk version of Victorian London, or perhaps a dark den in the '20s, opium smoke and mother's ruin blurring my troubles away.

I create music of the horror/victorian/punk persuasion, with my twin.

I have a gift for enraging people, but if I ever bore you it will be with a knife!" - Louise Brooks

I'm always a thought and a drink in front of people, but always a decade or ninety behind.

I've got the face of a dead girl and haunted hips. If I were born a boy, I'd be Ricky Fitts.

"Darling, the legs aren't so beautiful, I just know what to do with them."

~ Marlene Dietrich.

You can see me in dark corridors of Arkham when it rains, the alleys of whitechapel when it snows, or poring over a volume or two safely inside when the sun shines.

I am currently debating my career, pretty much narrowed down to 1) Surgeon, 2) Assassin, 3) Cooch Dancer, 4) Funeral Director.

Ricky Fitts: Sometimes there's so much beauty in the world I feel like I can't take it, like my heart's going to cave in.

I can only see things through the drawn shades of the past.

By the way... I didn't sell my soul and I think its an awfully rude thing to suggest.

I'm a sucker for a psycho boy. Add a gun and a wild look in his eyes and im there.

"Those who dream by day are cognizant of many things which escape those who dream only by night."
