Ceekay was a viral online figure who lived in the chat windows of Qzone, QQ’s online space, in the early 2000’s. Her world-weariness, reclusive personality, and tendencies towards self-harm were perfectly matched to the plot of her internet life, a narrative which ended when it came full circle in an untimely offline death: suicide by slitting her wrists. Afterwards, her followers volunteered as conjurers of her spirit, taking selfies in her “post-mortem” smokey-eye makeup, mounting and sharing effusive diary entries as QQ profile pictures and personalized signatures, and manufacturing, in all manner of cyber-circumstances, endless “Ceekay ghosts”: building a public monument to a generation of youth given to inadvertent emotional outbursts and leet speak communication. But all that could be counted among the evidence of this cyber-muse’s actual suicide were nothing but a few unconvincing last words and photographs.Her cause of death was also a work of online fiction, created by the public—even echoing the distant Gulf War; as a media event, search engines are still circulating the fairytale legend that “in every corner of the world people lived on happily ever after.” On December 22, 2015, micro-blog user Ghost Puppet claimed to be Ceekay, and published an online confession. This current Ceekay does not stand apart from the rest of this viral online phenomenon: her digitally modeled, delicate face is no different from the first QQ picture. She is still the ghost of Ceekay. Cyberspace is like Schrödinger’s box; Ceekay is both alive and dead. From the day of her “suicide,” she transferred possession of her muse image. It is now a role that can be played and usurped by anyone and everyone. It is an opensource identity.
