Description: I challenge you to pick a card; any card.
No, but seriously. I challenge you to pick one or more (or all of) the cards from the Major Arcana Tarot deck (see the list below.) Write a short drabble/fic/poem/song/WHATEVER about that card, using its fundamental meaning in some way. (The card itself does not have to be present, so long as the meaning of it is, and you indicate which card you are using.)
Simple, no? Anything goes, though I will review and give lots of cookies/hugs/glitter to anyone who writes about Yu Yu Hakusho characters or uses XVI. The Tower (my favorite card). Have fun!
