(This is my first time making my own thread, so sorry if I’m doing something wrong!)
I’ve always been interested in the symbolism of tarot cards and such and thought this would be a fun idea for a thread. Basically what the name says: what tarot card would you associate your character with? I did all major arcana, but you could pick any of them. I’ll start us off!
Quill, my main character, would absolutely be the Fool. The card represents innocence, beginnings, and freedom, which is perfect as the story begins with her just starting college. But, as the name suggests, she’s also naive and sometimes reckless, putting herself in danger without realizing.
Cyrus: Strength. She’s a courageous and charismatic character, but also riddled with doubt and has a hard time controlling her emotions.
Anthony: Probably the Hanged Man. When the story begins he feels sort of stuck in his life, but he also can’t bring himself to change anything.
Dally: The Sun, probably for obvious reasons. He’s a warm and positive character, but he can also take his optimism too far and refuse to see bad situations, and can be childish at times.
Jack: Death. For the obvious reasons, if you’ve ever looked at his profile, but also because his first appearance is sort of the herald to the story. It marks the beginning of the rising action and the first really big change in the protagonists’ lives. He could also be The Tower for similar reasons.
You don’t need to explain your choices as much as I did (or at all), but you’re welcome to!
