Girl of the theater, devoted to beauty, love and freedom. Romantic, not necessarily hopeless, but romantic nonetheless. She romanticises her life, she's the main character of the play. That is her existence. To court her, take her to see the Shakespeare, although the ballet or opera will do just as well. She has a deep compassion for animals, if there happens to be no theatre she will enjoy, take her to the races (she loves horses). She'll fall in love with every single one of her lovers. She is fluent in true and loyal love. She will recite Sophocles before she hops into the shower, or quote Oscar Wilde while she pours your coffee. A girl who plays on the stage will play with life as though it were a puppet or a stray kitten. She lives and breathes poetry and is fragrant like fruit. She will always be singing, songs you might know or foreign ones, she hears secret music in their air only audible to Bohemians. She's playful and bubbly, but she feels the pain of the flower you picked for her and sheds more tears than the clouds. She keeps secrets, only little ones of course, they are precious to her and she keeps them safe. She'll know how to make you laugh. Her vices will be beautiful to you, don't worry about them. She'll always sleep in, so let her sleep, her dreams are important to her. She comes alive at night, like the stars. She's a sabaist, she spends the majority of her evening with the stars, speaking to them. She loves earrings and perfumes, and she'll have a collection of both in her home, together with her hoard of gin and plays on her bookshelves. Her dressing room is her shrine and the stage is her altar. Refrain from worshiping her, she wants you to worship her art, the beauty she creates with her voice, body and mind. Her cat is her dearest companion, with whom you will have to form a friendship with to keep her happy. She's nothing but contradictions. Do not be shocked by her tattoos, you will learn to read their infinite meanings. She's always writing, adventuring or sleeping. Most importantly, she loves adventures. To love her is to delight in her desire to enjoy her life. That is why she performs, she lives a million lives. Be a poet, artist, musician or sculptor. Make her immortal.
