A young man is sitting in a train. It just so happens that today, the 11th of April, is when this young man will be moving in with his uncle and cousin in Inaba, where he will be living for the next year. Though it was seventeen years ago he was given life, it is only today he will be given a name!
What will the name of this young man be?
> Enter Name.
I will be very surprised if no one has done this yet.
So I thought it might be a fun idea to try some personastuck! First step, assign everyone to an arcana OTL. The list isn’t definite and I’m definitely going to be doing some tweaking to it, but here’s what I have for now! Thoughts?
I. Magician (Dirk) – action, initiative, self-confidence, manipulation and power (more specifically, the power to harness one’s talents.)
II. Priestess (Roxy) – hidden knowledge or other untapped power, wisdom, female mystery and magic
III. Empress (Kanaya) – prosperity, creativity, sexuality, abundance, fertility and comfort (most often in helping maintain peace around them like an ideal mother would.)
IV. Emperor (Karkat) – desire to control one’s surroundings, and its appearance could suggest that one is trying too hard to achieve this, possibly causing trouble for others; some elements in life are just not controllable.
V. Hierophant (Aranea) – education, authority, conservatism, obedience to rules and relationship with the divine.
VI. Lovers (Nepeta) – two paths life could lead to, and thus a symbol of standing at a crossroad and needing to make a decision. Today, however, it is portrayed more of a symbol of love and romantic relationships, although it can also be a symbol of finding agreement with an ordinary friend or even two conflicting elements within.
VII. Chariot (Vriska) – symbol of victory, conquest, self-assertion, control, war and command.
VIII. Justice (Terezi) – strict allegory of justice, objectivity, rationality and analysis.
IX. Hermit (Equius) – wisdom, introspection, solitude, retreat and philosophical searches.
X. Fortune (Tavros) – Fate and varying luck, fortunes and opportunities. What goes up will go down, what goes down will go up.
XI. Strength (Feferi) – morality about the stronger power of self-control, gentleness, courage and virtue over brute force.
XII. Hanged Man (Dave) – self-sacrifice for the sake of enlightenment, the bindings that makes one free, paradoxes and hanging between heaven and earth.
XIII. Death (Aradia) – foreboding and of doom, Death Arcana also symbolizes the metamorphosis and deep change, regeneration and cycles.
XIV. Temperance (Jane) – synthesis, prudence, harmony, and the merging of opposites.
XV. Devil (Meenah) – urge to do selfish, impulsive, violent things and be slave to ones’ own impulse and feelings. Occasionally, it is also portrayed as a symbol of temptation. The positive aspect, however, represents a healthy bond or commitment.
XVI. Tower (Eridan) – overly arrogant, prejudiced and authoritarian organization, which walk to their own ironic demise. Furthermore, it is also more generically used as an omen of doom and disaster.
XVII. Star (Jake) – hope, self-confidence, faith, altruism, luck, generosity, peace and joy.
XVIII. Moon (Gamzee) – creativity, inspiration, dreams, madness, illusions, fear, fantasy, the subconscious and trickery.
XIX. Sun (Jade) – happiness, joy, energy, optimism, and accomplishment. Occasionally, it is also associated with one’s initial happiness.
XX. Judgment (Rose, Sollux too…?) – balance of Light and Darkness.
XXI. The World (Calliope/Caliborn) – representation of the world’s totality, the symbol of fulfillment, wholeness, and harmony.
