You've checked every page on the Shrine and now have some questions about Marianettes? Well, here you can find the most frequently asked questions. If you don't see the answer to your question here, please send it to firstname.lastname@example.org It will be answered sooner or later. :-)
Why do Marianettes have a number?
Though Marianette1 insists that we have numbers because of hierarchy, other Marianettes don't agree with her. Originally, numbers were meant to protect our identities and keep us enigmatic but somehow it turned out that everybody knows who is who. What a surprise! So now numbers are tradition ;-) and besides we like to practise counting! LOL
Is there a Marianette census? How many Marianettes are there?
There are absolutely no controls. Marianettes are free and only show themselves when they want to.
Do all Marianettes have a Marian doll?
No, but there are plans... Marianette2 adds that only the best ones have a Marian doll. ;-)
How can I become a Marianette?
Being a Marianette is innate - you either love Marian or you don't. If you're not a born Marianette, you can become an honorary one by asking us and we'll test you to find out how loyal you really are. And then, if you pass, we'll assign you a number. In other words, if you love Marian and want to be part of the Shrine, you just have to contact us. ;-)
How do you identify an ex-Marianette or a hidden Marianette?
By the way they subconsciously praise everything Marian says or does.Besides, we have sixth sense. :-)
You said that Marianettes are "just a bit mad". How much is "a bit"?
Put together all the inmates of an asylum and multiply by 10 ;-)
Is there a special ritual on May 26th?
We bow three times before the lastest tour poster and shout "All hail Marian, king of vocalists!" and snog the poster after that. Then we drink wine looking at his photos, always with touching glasses! :-) Oh well, maybe we don't really do all that every year, but some part of it...
