My First Giveaway: Penny Dreadful Tarot
So first, an honest review: I’ve never seen the show, but I know it’s right up my alley. I bought the cards because I couldn’t resist the box. I just love those intertwining skulls! But, the cards were difficult for me to connect with because 1.) the imagery is minimalistic and deviates from the traditional symbolism that I have learned nearly by heart. It’s difficult for me to look at the cards and say “Okay, this image represents…” when it is not matching up with any of the traditional associations in my mind. And 2.) the pip cards, Ace through X, do not have any unique imagery of their own, they’re all slight variations on a central image. No scene to interpret. Plus, all of the imagery is a little spooky, making a rounded impression of the message difficult. This would be a fun deck for someone who is a fan of the show, or someone completely new to tarot. It HAS been used twice, so the cards are out of order, but they’re all in perfect condition and it comes with a small booklet about reading the cards. You may or may not get some extra surprises…
Okay, so The Rules:
- You do NOT have to follow me! This is not for followers. I’d rather give stuff away to a good home than let it sit on Amazon or ebay for months.
- But I want more than just reblogs and likes. They help spread the word, but in order to participate you must send me a message or an ask telling me your favorite book(s)! n_n I want my TBR list to grow.
- I will not choose you based on what you tell me; I’ll take your username and add it to a list and then put those names in a random generator. Don’t worry about impressing me. So, please do not send anonymous asks for this.
- This giveaway will run for one week. The last day to get a message in my inbox is Thursday, September 4th.
- I will ship anywhere, but I’m going to use the cheapest shipping because, hello, I hang out on tumblr do you think I have monies?! This means if you live outside the US it could take a little bit to get to you, depending where you live.
If you have any questions or just want to chat, my Ask is always open.
I’ve said it before, but this time it really happened: REBLOGGED SO FAST I BROKE A NAIL
I can’t get this deck due to location so I am VERY EXCITE ABOUT THIS!!!
Prepare your inbox to be flooded with TBR recs :D
I’ve been sketching Noldor. Have a Fëanor, in art-boy-goth high dudgeon. He’s probably not arrogant enough, but I was just trying out faces.
I h9 you (in the BEST way possible) and I LUFF YOU and when I am done mainlining this new TV series I will explain why and we will both have a wee tear of rejoicing and OH FUCK LOOK AT THE DATE LOOK AT THE DATE /JEEZUZ FUCK/
accidentally made a coyote skull to summon a 90s glitter gel pen demon
I feel like a 90s glitter pen demon would braid my hair so

Scientists are so clever with naming animals.
No you don’t even know these birds call actually sounds like its saying go away and what it does is it hangs around large groups of herbivores and when a predator shows up it will just start shouting GO AWAY GO AWAY and then all the gazelles and zebras and such will take off.
(Also known as a “Kwêvoël" - kwehh-fu-wel)
On the one hand they are adorable, beautifully soft grey, silly goofs who will fling a slice a bread around and 9 times out of 10 get it stuck over their heads, and then several versions of hilarity ensue.
LOOK AT THAT FACE LOOK AT THAT PLUMAGE PERFECT BABIES
On the other hand being woken up by a flock of them at the crack of ass - looking for bread and usually accompanied by their buddies-in-slumber-disturbing, the Hadeda - not so much.
White to black, full to new,
I don’t offer explanation.
Light to dark, pass ye through,
Heed the soul’s initiation.
Past the pillars of the true,
Unto that which none can see-
Undefined yet ever known,
beyond the veil is Mystery.
WHO AM I?
the MOON hits your eye
like a big pizza pie
"Patience," I whisper, "all in good time."
Easy for me to say.
Life’s a game of subtle forces,
all which turn my way.
Whether born of wrath or wisdom,
Or of divine law-
I shall bend with hand and feather,
turn with horn and claw.
WHO AM I?
The GD bloody Wheel. Roll away now. Shoo.
(I’m p. sure, mainly because hand, feather, horn & claw - ?)
I don’t think people realise how hard it is to re-discover the person you were before depression or even try to remember your own personality
and if you’ve had depression since early childhood you don’t even know if you have your own personality
you didn’t have time to be a person before depression
and it’s scary having no idea who you are
5-and-a-half years old.
I remember /before/. /Before/ was good.
