I am experiencing a growing feeling of unease. I think it's from tracking down the people in the Growlz Arcana.
@Ginny Havafone wrote notes down in the book about where to find them. She even left me her car, while she is went on a divinational dérive to find the others.
So I've been spying on these people and following them home, and it's creeping me out. They seem like normal people, but the more I watch them the more it's making me queasy. It's like... the world sort of bends around them when they move, and you just want to get away.
Like Justice, at the Handymart. She's a heavy set middle aged lady who sits behind the counter all judgey like. After her shift, I followed her home. At first I just had a headache. Then it turned into tunnel vision. The trees and the buildings on the street were reaching over her, almost touching. I got her home address and got out of there.
The Hermit lives behind the bus station, in a cardboard box, so that was easy. He paces the sidewalk, looks through trash cans, but if you keep watching you can see him wearing out a hole in time like it was a bad carpet, the scenery around him getting thinner and thinner...
The Emperor lives by himself in the apartments above the dry cleaner. I saw him looking back at me through his window and the sky went dark and it was like a trap door opened beneath my feet...
I ran back to the car and at first it wouldn't start. Thank goodness I didn't drop shop class.
There are 22 crackers in a box of Barnum's Animal Crackers, which lines up nicely with the major arcana. Bear, bison, camel, cougar, elephant, giraffe, gorilla, hippopotamus, hyena, kangaroo, koala, lion, monkey, rhinoceros, seal, sheep, tiger, zebra, and three non animals -- the Fool, the Hermit, and the Star.
After applying the traditional associations of each animal to the proper card, @Ginny Havafone
began giving Tarot readings. But by the time it was my turn, the monkey, tiger, zebra and Fool had all been eaten, so I don't think it was a fair reading.
Still, it's been on my mind. Should I drop shop class?
