Happy Birthday EA! How relieved are you that Opheliac has finally come out? :)
EMILIE AUTUMN ANSWERED
SO fucking relieved…I’ve only been waiting for this for three years, right? But honestly, it couldn’t have happened at a better time, I’m very glad the stars were not aligned before, but the wait is what made it what it is. There were some extra bits that had time to go in which otherwise would have been left off. Extra, deadly, bloody, bits…I can’t wait to tour though!!

QUESTION # 15
DORMOUSE ASKED
where do you find all your awesome clothes?
EMILIE AUTUMN ANSWERED
I make them all by hand. Anything I don’t make is usually an antique, because I collect as many old things as possible…I have some fantastic victorian mourning gowns… Oh! There will be a full fashion line soon…(evil plots…)
QUESTION # 16
DELILIA ASKED
What got you in to the whole victorian scene?
EMILIE AUTUMN ANSWERED
Very good question! I’ve always been a huge history geek, and have obsessed over various periods in history during various eras of my own life…I have landed in the Victorian realm because, largely, of the parallels to our society now, and because it is a fascinating time, having given birth to many things as we know them – modern psychology, social attitudes…a lot has changed, a lot has not…I could go on for days…
QUESTION # 17
VIOLETETERNITY ASKED
What part of a song do you write first after the lyrics? Do you get a idea of what the music will be like straight away after writing the lyrics?
EMILIE AUTUMN ANSWERED
It’s different each time, but very often the music and the lyrics happen simultaneously. One doesn’t really seem to exist without the other, and I write very quickly, so things just seem to come together at once.
QUESTION # 18
MSLEFAYE ASKED
Do you feel that you have sold out your ideals for cash? How so or not? Do you realize that creating Opehlia you have effectively killed off the Violin Faerie that your fans have adored. Are we still your friends or just customers? What about the Traitor Records Idea and free redistrubtion of your work?
EMILIE AUTUMN ANSWERED
Sold out for cash? Interesting. I’ve made virtually no money from Opheliac as of yet, and as the artist, I am always the last to see money. I am no richer in any way. My label deal with Trisol involved no money whatsoever. It was a business decision to bring my music to a larger audience through more staff and larger distibution. I would think this is what fans would want – to be able to get records easier. I am in fact much much poorer, since I’ve been making an album for the past year and doing little else. That costs money. Sold out? Ha. I wish. Opheliac killed off Violin Faerie? Another interesting concept. As I am essentially both characters, and I am still very much alive, I don’t see how this makes any sort of logical sense. I am a multifaceted and complex human being, just like you. If you want something that remains the same always, get a Twinkie. Not an Artist. Opheliac was borne out of a year, no, a lifetime, of harrowing experiences that I was finally ready to tackle. This is what a growing human does. They grow. They change. If my fans do not care to grow with me, then I am not the artist for them, and I do not feel badly about this in any way. In addition, I, like any real artist, do not work for the fans, I work for myself. I aim to entertain, I respect and adore those who give me a space in their lives, but I answer to no one but me. I created Opheliac to save my own life. This is for me. I need to do this. Follow me or don’t. I frankly don’t give a bloody fuck. Friends versus customers: Hmm. I have never approached the people who are kind enough to listen to my music in any way differently than I do now. I’m not sure what this question means. Traitor Records free distribution? Traitor Records has never stated in any way that all of our music would be free. If we have offered free downloads in the past/future, then that is our right and prerogative to do at certain times. I suppose we ought never to charge for our work? Try getting a dinner for that price. Or, perhaps, it would satisfy you if we made no money at all, which would find us promptly working at McDonalds, which would of course rule out any option of our making music at all, how would THAT be for killing off the Violin Faerie??? I apologize to everyone else for taking so long with this question, thank you for staying with me. More wine is required at this point;) And look! The muffins are done!
QUESTION # 19
FLEE ASKED
Are you typing with your breasts right now? if so show us! :)
EMILIE AUTUMN ANSWERED
Why, yes! I am! That is why that last question took so long. I am left breasted, as you of course know. I will try to post a link to my birthday breasts shortly;)
QUESTION # 20
HAYLEY JANE ASKED
Hey, Emilie! It’s HJ. My first question is….Who is Liar written for? I’ve wanted to know FOREVER.

Hi Sweet! Liar? Liar was written about someone who will come back as a cockroach in his next life;) But it was written FOR everybody who needs to yell LIAR at SOMEbody, and that would included every poor soul I know!
QUESTION # 21
SNOW ASKED
What or who got you started playing the Violin in the first place, Miss Emilie?
EMILIE AUTUMN ANSWERED
Hi love! I wish I knew. I asked for a violin when I was 4 though I don’t remember knowing what one was;) I’ve been playing non stop ever since, and have spent more hours of my life doing that then any other one activity including tea drinking!
QUESTION # 22
HEATHER ASKED
What do you make of being in the spotlight now, with your album becoming popular?
EMILIE AUTUMN ANSWERED
I don’t actually feel any different, my life is unchanged, except that I feel a relief that “O” is out the the world, butI am still here in my Asylum with my teacups and my sewing machine and my violins, I only don’t have time to use them as much as I did! I’ll let you know once the Crumpets and I are on tour, then I feel I shall really see what, if anything, Opheliac means to people.
QUESTION # 23
MARITZA & NATALIE ASKED
Can you buy the new CD in any store?
EMILIE AUTUMN ANSWERED
Yes actually, “O” is in shops across Europe, and is already in a few in the US, though this will increase drastically over the next months. Our mailorder, though, can get the album to anywhere in the world at lightspeed, so it’s pretty available;) You can see a full list here: http://www.emilieautumn.com/shop.html
QUESTION # 24
CLAIRISH ASKED
3.When did you first read Hamlet, and how did the idea for Opheliac come into fruition from the story?
EMILIE AUTUMN ANSWERED
I love this question;) I first read Hamlet when I was perhaps 12, and re-read it every years since then, if not more frequently. Yes, indeed, “Opheliac” is based on Ophelia, she being the archtype for feminine madness, something I can heavily relate to;)

QUESTION # 30
MIDNIGHTTRANCE ASKED
Hello Emilie, and happy birthday! Do you prefer to use software or hardware synths, which equipment do you use? Also, if you could tour with any one artist who would it be?
EMILIE AUTUMN ANSWERED
Hi Lovey! I love both software and hardware, I’m not religious about anything (including religion), I go with whatever makes the sound I want at the moment;) I really lovely the ARP2600 VST, you can probably tell that already if you have one;) What else? I perform with a Yamaha PS80, best most realistic harpshord there is…I have a million other synths/patches/pedals/plugins, its really quite random. “Reason” of course is a big deal to my recording/programming process;)…OH! Touring…I would LOVVVVVE to tour with Depeche Mode, of course, and I would love to duet with Johnnie Rotten, and Morrissey. Both. At the same time. And then have the biggest gay/straight/asexual three-way ever!
QUESTION # 31
CHANDA ASKED
*Excitement at the answer to Bluedove’s question* Yay new fashion line…so when can we expect to be able to purchase some fabulous new fashions from you miss Emilie??
EMILIE AUTUMN ANSWERED
Well, as you can see there is a LOT going on, and it takes serious time to do things right. But know that the planning for all of this is going on NOW, with things to happen incrementally, first T-shirts, then specialized merch (more elaborate wear, teasets;), then full runway show! The biggest task is setting up the distribution, then making sure that things are made in such a way that they remain exquisite but affordable to all of you whom I love!
QUESTION # 32
ENDER ASKED
Sorry to be bothering you again, Ms. Autumn, but I believe I have another question… do you take singing lessons? If so, how long have you been studying for? Are you an alto, soprano, mezzo?
EMILIE AUTUMN ANSWERED
Hi sweet! I’ve never had a singing lesson, I simply take the basics of tone production that I learnt on the fiddle and apply them to my vocal chords, which seems to work passibly. I am naturally an alto, though have developed a sort of soprano which you can hear on songs like “Marry Me”. Thanks for the great question!
QUESTION # 33
CAT ASKED
Do you have any tips for aspiring violinists?
EMILIE AUTUMN ANSWERED

QUESTION # 34
ASKED
i discovered you only a few months ago when i was searching through project label site, i believe it was on voltaires myspace page i saw a link with your picture and i cant help but click on women with red hair….some sorta fetish i supposse, i herd opheliac and became an instant fan. i downloaded your enchant album, i appreciate you offering it for free and at high qaulity, also using torents i found some of your other music and i preordered your opheliac album, id like to be able to purchase some of your earlier works as i favor cd qaulity over mp3s, do you have any plans to reissue albums? oh and i like your response to that oh you sold out prick, why should you be poor? (what the hell does sell out mean anyway from a fans perpsective….i think thats completely moronic statment as if the fan is somehow morally superior….forsake the almighty dollar to appease you…i dont think so.) happy birthday, whish you well.
EMILIE AUTUMN ANSWERED
Thank you so much for finding me!! I do absolutely have plans to reissue older albums in very special editions…I would like to be able to talk abotu one of them in paricular, but I’m waiting on the word from the label, not sure if I’m allowed to say and don’t want to spoil the surprise…but the answer is YES! Thank you very much for your support;) to many fans, artists are always inferior because we are looked on as servants who live to entertain like performing monkeys. I understand it, society devalues art so. But that doesn’t make it logical.
QUESTION # 35
LORDCANCER ASKED

GREG ASKED
There’s an interesting change in direction between the baroque “On A Day,” the fantasy-rock of “Enchant” and the victoriandustrial of “Opheliac.” Are your stylistic changes a reflection of the different sides of yourself or do you see it as a natural progression?

Yes, and both. I change everyday, I think most people do if they allow themselves to. The goal in all of my work is honesty, not to sound too pretentious;)

MALINDA ASKED
Happy birthday Ms. Emilie! I hope you received everything you wished for. I would like to know what caused your musical style to change so drastically, if you don’t mind me asking. I do love the new Victoriandustrial sound, but it was such a shock to hear it the first time.
EMILIE AUTUMN ANSWERED
I did indeed, all I wanted was for you all to come chat with me, and you did, so I am divinely happy! Yes…Victoriandustrial shock…I understand that of course…it had in fact been in the works for a long time, you have to realize just how old Enchant is…it was written more than 8 years ago, and took some time to come out…label issues;)…I see music styles as paintboxes wher yu simply choose the colors you need to express your idea. These are the colors I needed.
