  1. Summary

    "The Nine of Cups in Tarot stands for wish fulfillment, satisfaction, and sensual pleasure..."

    "It's a sign to seek and enjoy pleasures of all kinds. It's time for pure indulgence and delight in the senses of sight, sound, taste, and feeling. However, you need to be cautious that you don't indulge at someone else's expense. You must pursue pleasure but also have a regard for the consequences. Accept your responsibilities and then enjoy your good fortune."

  4. Summary

    Each of these stories was inspired by a Contrelamontre challenge based on one of the elements. They are loosely connected by character and some thematic elements.

    The stories are listed in what I see as their chronological order within the fictional universe, but it doesn't really matter in what order you read them.
