2003/08/14 11:28:00 - My Little Pony Tarot Cards?
With one of those free association things that seem to happen a lot on IRC, lark_ascending and I ended up talking about My Little Pony Tarot cards.

lark_ascending thinks it is probably impossible to get proper balance on a set (and she's probably right), but the comment that sticks in my mind is:

Hanged Man is a card about having perspective on the world. It'd probably be a pony hanging by its knees from a tree, like a kid.

(Aww, cute...)

I think it would be *difficult* to get proper balance. But if you read old MLP comics and so on, it's not all totally sugar-coated; there's a lovely little rendition of the story of the Discordian apple in one book I've got at home.

I think with a little creativity you could come up with quite a strong deck - it would be heavily influenced by the same values the MLP world was created to express, namely friendship, sharing, exploration and learning, cooperation to overcome bad times and innocence - but that's not necessarily a bad thing in a tarot deck.

A My Little Pony *collector's* Tarot, on the other hand, would be far more flexible - "XIII. Child with Scissors."

VIII: Elder Brother (or possibly 0?)

Surely the older brother would be XV ;)

0: Spike the Dragon
XVII: The Pony Collector

.. this is all far too plausible :)

Ooo, I'd forgotton about Spike. Aww...

I think XV is probably reserved for younger brother...

I'd guess that depends on what your little brother was like..
