For those of you who don’t know the origin, ‘Persephone’ was a goddess from ancient Greek mythology; mistress of food & grain, queen of the underworld.. wife of the dark lord, Hades! A testing profile to replicate for a mere mortal! Is it not?:]
Yet, ‘persephone’ of IRC put immortality of these mythical deities to the test. With her gawking ferocity, her guile and a relentless fusion of veracity and savoir-faire, she has developed quite a nuisance value over IRC!
And since persephone’s reputation precedes her everywhere; when I approach her for an interview, I knew it was like selling my soul to the devil itself, hah!
Being a guy who has frequently burned not only his finger, but his entire hands in the embers of ‘expectations’, I expected persephone to be tight-lipped and stingy when it comes to ‘weird’ questions. So after careful obeisance, I began this walk of fire. What followed in next hour or so changed my opinion about persephone, forever.
Oscar Wilde says, “Give a man the mask of anonymity.. and he will show you his true face“.
IRC, for me, is the perfect masquerade, for all of us. The anonymity and lack of consequence or reprisal brings out the worst in us. It is a den of iniquity and we are all part of the same hypocrisy. The dishonest way we all portray ourselves, trying to be what we are not; posing ourselves as decent individuals, whereas all we do on IRC is trolling, flirting, perversion, party-baazi, back-biting and gossiping. We elapse so much crap k with time, we have started to believe in righteousness of our own apathy. Seamlessly, but eventually, we have become what we all once dreaded…!
And with that dishonesty, comes fear. Fear of being ‘caught’ with our lies… fear of being scrutinized if we are caught… fear of “social rejection” if some finds out that we are not good enough… fear of being JUDGED for what we truly have become!
persephone, is beyond this fear of judgement! She ravels in her rebellion… she OWNS her deviance! In her apparent debauchery, she has broken free from the bonds of hypocrisy. She has become brutally simple, pure and vicious! Zero fucks given to the judgement, not balking down from critique, no shit given for gossips. She is a perfect antidote… for the contagious venom of IRC!
And that’s why most of us will judge her for this interview.. because her defiance jeopardizes the shell of hypocrisy we all keep wearing around ourselves.
For me… persephone’s defiant honestly juxtaposes her with the rest of us. She might be blasted for this interview but I, personally, will always admire her for her forthcoming demeanor!
Because who am I to judge? Just another guy with the ‘mask’? Food for thought… :]If it wasn’t obvious enough till now, ‘Maleficent’ and the cover photo are to serve as ‘satire’, complementing whatever I wrote above. Also, I have spoken about the black sheep of IRC; I am no one to judge who is good and who isn’t. But there are extremely Good people around here too, untainted by the dark scourge of IRC.. And because of them, my faith in humanity stays reinforced…!
