We looked at the sky. So many stars, it seemed like a celebration, a grand, illicit party the galaxy was holding after the humans had been put to bed.

We Were Liars, E. Lockhart (via lilys-library)

ink-and-bee:

YAY. This took longer than I meant it to and they still aren’t colored. YAY.

1. Abhorsen’s House, Ace of “Bells” (or really, inverted cups.) Emotional energy, intuition, family, water. Protecting those you love, doing what must be done even when it is difficult. The symbol is the Charter Mark for Saraneth, the binder.

2. Sea of Saere/Belisaere, Ace of Swords, (except that I am being really annoying and flipping the wands and swords meanings, simple because it makes sense. Sanar and Ryelle use wands, while the royalty obviously relies on swords for protection.) So in this case, the swords suit is fire-based, physical/personal energy, confidence. The symbol is the Charter Mark for Ranna, the sleeper (getting my Touchstone lols in where I can.)

3. The Resevoir/The Great Charters, Ace of “Stone and Mortar” (Pentacles) Humility, inner strength, practicality, blood and stone and earth. The symbol for the Charter Mark is Mosrael, the waker. (or the seesaw that throws the ringer into death while bringing the dead to life, my nod to the wallmaker’s sacrifice.)

4. The Stilkin Room/The Clayr’s Library, Ace of Wands (swords). Air, truth, curiosity, knowledge. The Charter Mark is Belgaer, the thinker, (also the bell of memory.)

'Do you still miss Gran? I asked him as we headed toward New Clairmont, 'Because I miss her. We never talk about her.'
‘A part of me died,’ he says, ‘And it was the best part.’
‘You think so?’ I ask
‘That is all there is to say about it.’ says Granddad.
