hd_worldcup: Tarot Prompt - The Tower

"The Tower is an unsettling card. Fire, lightning, falling on jagged rocks - definitely looks like trouble! It represents a sudden, dramatic upheaval or reversal in fortune. Usually change is gradual, giving us time to adapt, but sometimes it is quick and explosive. This is the action of the Tower.

In films, the hero sometimes slaps someone who is groggy or babbling. Having tried everything else, he finally resorts to a sharp sting to snap him out of it. Sudden crises are life's way of telling you to wake up. Something's wrong, and you're not responding. Are you too full of pride? Expect a blow to your ego. Are you holding back your anger? Expect the dam to burst. Are you stuck in a rut? Expect a surprise.

How you respond to the Tower's change makes all the difference in how uncomfortable the experience will be. Recognize that the disruption occurred because it was needed. Perhaps embracing the change is too much to ask, but try to find the positive in it. In fact, you may feel tremendous release that you have finally been forced in a new direction. You may have a burst of insight about your situation and reach a new level of understanding about it." - learntarot.com

Q

Finished my final layouts reboots for a while: megyal (minimum resolution of 1024 x 768) and bydaylight (a plus!account).

For the first one could y'all tell me if y'all DON'T see flowers on the bottom right?

And I was wondering - would anyone be interested in me releasing the codes to a variation of the Expressive layout I've used @ gossymer, maderr and megyal? It's a layout for paid accounts and uses a theme and user layer. This would be a sort of beta release since it'll probably take me till fall to get customized colorschemes and stuff done for it - since I need to do Opal and Bloggish first. But in the meantime, y'all have the opportunity to play with it :)

hd_worldcup: Tarot Prompt - The Lovers

"The Lovers represent that the seeker is at a crossroads where a moral decision must be made and you feel divided. You must know yourself because making the right decision could mean going against what others tell you. It is about choice and duality and decision. It can represent the necessity of being tested.

The Lovers can symbolize a deep love or a powerful drawing together of two entities, be it people, ideas, events, etc. It is the blossoming of a valuable and balanced relationship, intimate but not necessarily sexual. It can also signify a new relationship or that a current relationship is going through a big change.

Reversed - Obsessive relationship or fantasy dominating one’s life or pining for past relationships. An unbalanced relationship. Making the mistakes. Not learning from past. Failure to meet the test. Unreliability. Separation. Frustration in love or marriage. Untrustworthiness." - bewitchingways.com

This round was super easy to read, especally since the fics were shorter. Yet some of them were shockingly intense and I admit I have two more favorites. hd_worldcup is ♥

hd_worldcup: favorites round up.

Okay, about 40 fics have been posted for hd_worldcup and I thought I'd just post my general favorites:
My top three at the moment are How Do You Mend a Broken Heart?, Take a Sad Song (And Make it Better) and DIY Messiah - but that's just for me and I know everyone's measuring the fics by their own yardstick.

What are your favorites so far? It doesn't matter if you've read everything or not - I'd just like to know what peeps enjoyed the most ^__^
