Forgive me for the blurriness of the first few photos. x_x Indoor lighting sucks. But the rest is quite pretty I assure you.

Layla: *skips into Die's room* Dieee~! Why aren't you up yet?

Layla: ...? Die?

Lucian: *enters the room* Ah Lady Layla, Good Mor-

Layla: What did you do with him? -_-
Lucian: *blink* Uh what...?
Layla: Dietrich's missing. ;_;

Lucian: Hm, so you're right. That's odd. I didn't notice him leave. //This is not the first time I was unable to sense him...hm, I wonder...//

Lucian: *opens the curtains* Aha...so I was right. It appears to have snowed.

Lucian: Don't worry Lady Layla, I think I know where he is.
Layla: *sighs in relief* Thank goodness.

Lucian: You wait here. I'll go retrieve him.
(Lyn: hee, I don't know why but I was so amused by the difference in their heights here. Mostly due to Lucian's platforms of doom though XP)

Lu: *walks through the snow*

Lu: Now let's see...where has the prince gone to...

Lu: Ah, there he is.

Dietrich: *sighs softly* The snow always brings me such comfort...

Die: I guess it's because of the whole Snow Queen reincarnation thing...*frowns* ...I still don't quite understand it. I mean I always thought I knew who I was but...

Lu: *slowly approaches the prince* You are Dietrich, Prince of Arcadia.

Die: Lucian?
Lu: So I've noticed your powers have been awakening more and more these days. Is this snow perhaps your doing?
Die: *frowns* My doing? I didn't...

Lu: *sits down next to the other* There is no need to worry. This will only make you stronger and it is what Lucifer and I have been waiting for.

Lu: You are the Snow Prince now and that's all that matters. Soon I will be able to help you take back Arcadia.
Die: ...

Die: *moves away, standing up*
Lu: My Prince...?

Die: I hate how you can just talk about it so calmly. To me its all so confusing and frightening.

Die: I've been having dreams lately...all about snow...I don't remember them much afterward but they leave me with all these confusing emotions...

Die: I've always been able to withstand colder climates than everyone but now...I don't even feel cold at all. The snow just feels like a part of me and it weirds me out...it's not human. What am I really? ...who am I really?

Lu: I told you already...you are you. I believe those dreams you are having are memories from your former life. But you are not the same person as that woman was, I can tell you that for sure. You are yourself and I don't think that will change even as your body does.

Lu: And I will be by your side through it.
Die: *frowns* ...Lucian?
Lu: Yes my Prince?
Die: What am I to you? I mean, what are your feelings really?
Lu: ...?

Lu: *looks away slightly* Why you are my contract, of course. You are an important soul and so I will do my best to serve you during this time.
Die: ...and after? What then? I am just another soul to you and Lucifer, aren't I? *smiles sadly, getting up*

Lu: ...Dietrich?
Die: Ah, I want to be alone for a bit... *walks off*

Die: Memories, huh? At least I have the snow to comfort me for now...

Lucian: ...

Lucian: My feelings, huh? I wonder myself...

Well it appears that finally I've been able to start moving the story forward again. I've also been debating how to do future parts and whether or not to do any "novel" bits since there is only so much I can actually do with the dolls. lol But not sure if anyone would actually read them or like them. XP

But moving away from the slightly depressing story there...here are some more snow photos!

Yes that is made from my leftover Fai fabric. XP I'm not sure if I like the train though so any opinions on whether I should make it shorter or keep it as it is?

Stories Behind the Shoot:

lol I think the things I go through to put these little stories together are sometimes even more epic than the story/shoot itself. Yes, I totally froze to death while doing this since I was out there for quite a while but I was determined! I wish I could have done snow photos for all the dolls but there was just no way as it was too easy to get them dirty out there and I only have so many hands. I had a hard enough time posing these two while balancing the camera.

And I couldn't just settle for putting the dolls in the snow. Nooo. I had to sprinkle snow all over Die to get the look I wanted. Ironically it was actually Lucian who ended up with more snow on him and I didn't even put any of that on him. >_< First thing that happened when I got out there was Lucian did a complete nose dive into the snow and he continued to fall over a lot the whole shoot. So I was constantly having to brush a shitload of snow off of him. lol

My Dad was also amused by the fact that there were doll boots in the bathroom all lined up, waiting to dry. XP As the dolls themselves weren't too wet but their boots were caked with snow by the time I was done. And ok, I think I'm done rambling now.

Aww poor Die. I loooove his coat <3 perhaps a tad shorter train but it's super awesome.

Silly luce should think about his feelings more often xD.

I just imagine Lucifer sitting somewhere by a window with a view holding the new head XD going "I'm NOT going out there" XD

^^ Hm, yeah, I may cut it as it didn't do what I thought it would, lol I think 'cause the fur made it too heavy or I just got the design wrong. x_x; Either way, I was in a rush when making it.

Yes, yes he should. >> *baps him on the head* ... *runs very far away* ^^;;

LOL omg that mental image just killed me XP And sounds pretty accurate.

I laughed at the image myself just add him stroking the poor thing's bald head and we're complete xD

I love love love Die's new coat. I think the length is great and my first thoughts when seeing it was "huh that looks a lot like a Fai coat" *^^* I am anxious to see where you are going to take the story next *^^*
Lyn: die - snowrose_of_pain on January 25th, 2009 05:06 pm (UTC)
^__^ Yay~ Yeah I've been meaning to make him one out of my leftover fabric for a while...and then it snowed and I was like "crap, I should hurry and make it" so rushed it in order to get out in the snow with the sun still out. XP

snoooooow >.< curse youuuu

hehe I like Die's new coat, its cute. I like the length, works for Die in my optinion. Though I think the fur on the end of the train is a bit much...then again knowing me if you take it off I'd probably go "hmm...yeah nevermind, put it back on". So with that said just ignore me haha.

XPXP I'm surprised we got it. o_o But it made me very happy. ^_^

Welp I was trying to go for a mix between the coat and cloak I had for my Fai costume. Like it was the coat style but I was trying to give it the cloak train but didn't quite work together. XP But I like the fur on the bottom. I think its cute even if it does make it heavier, lol.

I think Die was completely jealous of the snow we were getting up here in the NY/NJ area that he had to go and make it snow down there XD;

Lyn: die - snowrose_of_pain on January 25th, 2009 05:08 pm (UTC)
He totally was! XP He was quite upset at that, lol.
