Hmm. Her king of cups card shows a guy hanging out on the beach with a vast ocean and a ship behind him, that's actually easy. "Ocean Jasper and Soul & Motown."

Permalink

"Cool! Thank you." He has no idea what a chocolate called Soul & Motown is and is sort of skeptical that any of this is going to have meaningful psychological benefits that talking about anime wouldn't have on its own but whatever it's fine. Probably.

Permalink

Soul+Motown is Sweet churned cultured butter ganache + 45% cacao deep milk chocolate + Fleur de Sel sea salt.

"You can just cut the deck a few times and pick something out of the middle, if that's easier," she says to Pen, quietly, because she's pretty sure that Pen is dying inside and could use a chocolate.

Permalink

Um - she's not entirely sure she's supposed to do tarot things either but now there's a deck in her hands and - okay fine she can cut it. It doesn't matter. Doesn't matter. It's just cards, and she was going to end up getting a random nondescript chocolate anyway. Draw - aaah!! why does her card have a guy being stabbed to death with ten swords at once!!

Oh good, they can just count this time! "Rainforest Jasper and Absinthe."

Permalink

That doesn't sound very much like a chocolate flavor but okay.

Permalink

"Absinthe is a great writer's drink, you know! Are you creative writing track?"

Permalink

........nod?

Permalink

"See! It'll be good for you, then."

Permalink

 

Pen is really confused. Mostly. She nibbles her chocolate. It's....... okay.

Permalink

If the other indies are drawing cards that probably means it's okay for him to draw a card?

His card has nine five-pointed stars on it. He doesn't actually have any idea what that means.

Permalink

Okay the obvious thing is to count, does the thing you get when you count make sense. Sure, Oaxaca sounds like a rain foresty sort of place and the lady is surrounded by plants. Also there's something about the nine of pentacles symbolizing refinement and pyrite being mistaken for gold, and she doesn't quite have it worked out yet but she'll have it in another six seconds. "Pyrite and Oaxaca!"

Permalink

"Thank you!" He smiles at her.

This is mildly disappointing since he's pretty sure pyrite isn't very valuable, but at least the chocolate is tasty. 

Permalink

That leaves Ayako and Orion. She offers Ayako her deck. "Do you want to draw, or just pick a chocolate yourself?"

Permalink

"I'll draw."

It's the Lovers. 

Permalink

- oh, this one is hard! Do any of the remaining stones have an association with love? If they do, she doesn't think she's heard that about them. And there are more trees here, which could mean Amazonite, but that seems lazy, doesn't it? Lots of the other cards had trees, and she didn't say Amazonite for any of those...

Okay, the lovers in this deck are clearly Adam and Eve, and they're naked, so they haven't sinned yet, and they have an angel over them, so they're still basically perfect and connected to the heavens...

"Selenite and Gianduia," she says, after puzzling over it for a moment.

Permalink

"Thank you." 

She has no idea where Anemone is getting these associations from but does kind of admire her confidence. Gianduia, apparently, involves hazelnuts. 

Permalink

"Sure thing! Hey Orion, do you want a chocolate? And do you wanna draw a card for your chocolate?"

Permalink

"The chocolate comes with cards? I thought it was crystals?" Pace pace.

Permalink

"They come with crystals, but we've been asking the enchanted tarot cards what chocolates we need, as a way of deciding. You can also just pick one from what's left over, though, if you'd rather."

Permalink

Orion peers into the room. "What's in the green one?"

Permalink

"I think that's the Black Pearl - 'Organic Wakaya ginger + freshly grated wasabi + 72% cacao dark chocolate + ceremonial matcha'."

Permalink

Marian sliiiiightly wants that one but isn't going to ask. 

Permalink

"Weird. What's there that isn't weird?"
