Natalya's last name.

I don't know which last name to give Natalya: Gustovna or Charnetskaya. Gustovna was the first choice but I think Charnetskaia is prettier. The male version to Charnetskaia is Charnetskii, which I think is ugly, but I don't think Gustov is very Russian. I have been so idecisive lately...

Which cutsew should I choose?

Christmas is coming soon and I was wanting to get some new lolita clothes. I recently discovered two cutsews for sale on other sites, but I don't know which one to get. ...

thinking of a new title for duchess in dreamland

I'm going to change the name of my comic. The reason is because Natalya is a Grand Duchess, not a Duchess. There is a difference, a Grand Duchess is higher than a Duchess. Also, Grand Duchess in Dreamland isn't as catchy as Duchess in Dreamland. Here are a few other titles I was thinking of:

  • Fantastic Doll
  • Monarchy X Anarchy
  • Sweet Dreamer
  • The Grand Duchess
  • Lullaby of Natalya
  • The Fantasist
  • Melodic Doll
  • Aristocrats Fantasia

I thought about making a Russian title too, for example, instead of Fantastic Doll I would use Fantastichyeskaya Kukla but when transliterated like that in English it looks like gibberish.
I'd really like to use the word fantasia as part of the title because it could be taken as a musical composition or a fantasy, both are relevant to the story. I also like fantastic and doll but I want to keep it simple, nothing like The Tale of a Living Doll and Her Knights.

Throughout my story there is a power struggle between the monarchists and anarchists, but in the end it all boils down to bringing the world out of sleep. I suppose with a story like this there would be alot of flexibility for a title but I'm just so indecisive!

Avantasia was the princess of a cold, dark country. Even though one would think a princess had everything she ever wanted or needed, there was one thing Avantasia didn't have. She wanted to be alone. All she ever wanted was peace and quiet, but ...

Duchess in Dreamland summary!

In a faraway, forlorn country there lived petite Natalya, the Grand Duchess of Alva Roshia. She was very lonely, with no friends and nothing to do. With all of her sweet little heart, she wanted nothing more than to escape her dull life and into a world of magic and mystery. The pretty Duchess wished for pleasant companions and a knight in shining armor.
One night before bedtime, she prayed for her wishes to come true. When Natalya awoke from her sleep, she found herself in a singing tower. When she looked into a mirror in front of her, she saw she was wearing a beautiful dress, and strangest of all, was metamorphosed into a doll!
Natalya ventures through this chimerical realm, meeting new indiviuals, including friends and enemies. Among the friends are Ivan, an outgoing young man; Élodie, a strange and agile girl; Alistair, a darkly dragoon from another country; and Lachlan, a transvestite. But a malevolent assailant, Sylphia, hungers for a virgin's untainted blood, particularly Natalya's blood.
Is this all a dream? Has Natalya's prayers of romance been answered? Or perhaps this is a new alternate reality for Natalya!
