    Rayati, Miss Eriana! Please grant me your loving indulgence, and forgive my lateness.

    That is such a lovely story idea; I wish you the best of luck and guidance with it!

    In Amity,

  • Rayati, Miss Eriana,

    I subscribe to TheLongHairedFlapper on Youtube, and she has some lovely videos on scents from the Victorian era through to the 20s, which can be made with essential oils. Do let us know how how your perfume-making goes!

  • Rayati!

    This thread has made me want to start creating my own perfumes! I have a small essential oil and fragrance oil collection that I’d like to put to good use. I’m sure there are some tutorials on the internet. And then it’s just a case of getting some nice glass bottles and coming up with some lovely names :)

  • Rayati!

    If I may revive this, I would just like to add some favourites of my own, and ask if anyone has experience with a company I am interested in buying from. I too agree that modern perfumes smell terribly artificial, and that oil-based ones are best, however one eau de toilette which has impressed me greatly is Après L’Ondée, also by G…[Read more]

  • Rayati Miss Eriana,

    I apologise greatly for my lateness! Please give me your loving indulgence. I adore your story idea, and wish you the best of luck with it. I would like to extend an offer of help alongside Sushuri-chei and Rill-chei, and hope you will enjoy your time here.

    In Amity,

  • Rayati, Miss Yuriko, and thank you for your lovely welcome!

    Indeed. I have been working on a book for a while that takes place in a fantasy universe in which a young exiled princess teams up with a priestess, and they help fulfil a prophecy relating to the return of Dea to the land. I am still figuring some things out and am still in the world…[Read more]

  • Rayati and welcome Honored Miss Eriana,

    Please give me your loving indulgence. I am so glad that you are here.

    If you would like, please let us know a little about yourself. I see from your profile that you are interested in science fiction and high fantasy, and that you dream of writing.

    I have been reading the Narnia series in Japanese…[Read more]

  • Rayati, and welcome, Miss Lauliette!
    I beg your forgiveness for my tardiness; please give me your loving indulgence!

    In Amity,

  • Rayati, and many thanks for the warm welcome.

    I did mention in prior correspondence with the honored Miss Sushuri that I would elaborate on my personal history within the motherland, and would be glad to do so.

    A bit over a decade ago, as a schoolgirl, I was very close friends with a lovely maid who told me stories of the Motherland. I felt a…[Read more]

  • Oh I meant using them to make collages that included the appropriate symbolism, I’ve made rather a study of tarot and am familiar ^_^

  • Rayati and welcome, Honored Miss Lauliette,

    Please give me your loving indulgence.

    I look forward to getting to know you better, and I hope you enjoy your stay with us.

    In Amity,
    Yuriko Rill

    I hope your stay with us is a happy one.

    Please give me your loving indulgence,


  • We have thought about this before. It is a big undertaking but it would be wonderful if it could be done.

    What I would say is that one cannot really use things like old advertisements. One can make cards like that of course, but they wouldn’t be Tarot. Of course much of what passes for “modern tarot” these days isn’t Tarot either. And of course…[Read more]

  • I was thinking of possibly commissioning artists, or using lovely old advertisements and making collages

  • Rayati, honored Miss Darling,

    Oh, an intemorphic tarot sounds so lovely! Were you thinking of creating your own deck? How admirable!

    In Amity,

  • I’ve been reading about and improving my ability to use the tarot recently and I have been thinking about how one of the things I tend to find objectionable is the use of masculinity in tarot decks where it seems to honestly fit quite poorly, and I would very much like to have a feminine tarot deck. Some of the masculine figures in the deck are…[Read more]

    Rayati, honored Mei-san!

    I am listening to the “World Angel Summit” put on by Hay House. A lekkie search should turn this up for you, I think. It involves two talks per day for a week– today, Sucridi, is day 3. They are only up for the one day, perhaps to encourage listeners to purchase the recordings afterwards.

    If you do seek them out,…[Read more]
