"Okay! Hmm let's see what we've got. You could try the Ambrosia - it's Australian macadamia nuts and white chocolate and...Cointreau TM whatever that is, and, uh, 23-karat gold leaf? Apparently? For some reason? Is that edible– moving on. The other white chocolate one is Olio D'Oliva, which is - Tuscan olive and green olives? ...Who has the pairing sheet, I don't remember which one of those goes with what crystal."

"Can you do a draw for me, Anemone?"

Ennis takes the Ambrosia and, when the sheet is found, the corresponding crystal.

Permalink

"Sure! You'll want to shuffle the deck, so the cards have a chance to feel your energy and see what you need, and then I'll read what's on top."

Permalink

Julia takes the deck and closes her eyes and shuffles.

"Page of swords!" Okay, you can't count for this one and the page and the swords are not going to have anything to do with the chocolates, what does the card have on it, random cow - all of the chocolates have milk in them so all of them fit that - and a butterfly, the butterfly is almost a monarch but not quite actually, scientific name lepidoptera - "Lepidolite and Viola."

"Oooooh, the one with the purple flower petal on top," she says, after consulting the guide, "that was my favorite, excellent - matches my eyeshadow -"

Permalink

Ennis laughs softly.

She's pretty sure that none of this is Buddhist?? She is not very religious but this really doesn't sound familiar at all. Maybe it's a different kind of Buddhism that isn't the kind that made it to Japan???

"I don't think I'm allowed to do... tarot stuff? Uh, I guess I can take a matching chocolate and a crystal if that'll avoid messing it up for everyone else, though. What goes with the one that has coconut on it?"

Permalink

"Hmm, it's not obvious from the names which one that is."

Permalink

"...who's gonna stop you from doing tarot?" asks Rebecca.

Permalink

"I think Christians aren't supposed to? I haven't really thought about this since I got whisked off to magic school, it could be that this doesn't make a lot of sense anymore."

Permalink

Marian can read the insert to find the one with coconut! 

"....Uh, I think you want the Naga? It's got....toasted curry masala and coconut purée and milk chocolate. - Also, oh man the Black Pearl sounds amazing! It's got ginger AND wasabi AND matcha in it. Anyone interested in that?" 

Permalink

"Well, I want the amethyst one, whichever that is, but I don't think it says anything about tarot anywhere I've read."

Permalink

Jeremy kind of thought Christians weren't supposed to do magic at all? But probably you aren't supposed to just tell them that, if they think you're insulting their religion they won't want to work with you.

Permalink

"Well, my grandma is a devout Pentacostal and she's the one who taught me to read tarot, if you ever want to talk about what she says about how it works," she says, and hands Karen the one with the coconut on top. And a smoky quartz, since that's what goes with the Naga.

"Amethyst goes with Chef Pascal." She hasn't looked at the list at all, just heard it read out the one time.

Permalink

Pen would honestly just like two chocolates instead of a chocolate and a crystal? But she's pretty sure there's no way to say this, and possibly no way to say that she wants chocolate at all.

Permalink

Rebecca endeavors to find out what that is.

Permalink

Wow, Anemone has a really good memory. Marian has managed to set her hands on the reference sheet again but she has to carefully read through it again. 

"Chef Pascal is....okay what the heck is that. Schwarz-wäld-er kirsch-wasser? Does anyone have any idea what that is? ...Oh also dark chocolate and tart cherry."

Permalink

"Schwartzwälder Kirschwasser is-- cherry-water?-- from a region of Germany that makes a lot of cherry and chocolate desserts, I'd guess it's some kind of alcohol thing."

Permalink

"Ooh yeah kirsch is cherry! I'm learning German. I looked up all the German-sounding last names I could think of so the vocabulary would be easier to remember and that was one." Chef Pascal: nom.

Permalink

"Oh, that's a good flavor combo, liquored chocolates are tasty." Julia's going to endeavor not to remember the German, though; now that she's creative writing track she has more languages than she would strictly prefer.

Permalink

"Anybody else wanna shuffle and draw?" she asks, and holds her cards out to the room.

Permalink

"Sure, why not." 

King of cups.
