How do you Brohoof someone?


On a persons post, next to the name there should be a + and -.

Obviously the + is an upvote, but there have been a share of downvotes from time to time.

I'm not sure about that. As I understand it, the Hanged Mare is also about passivity and letting go of things. In that aspect, it seems to apply strongly to BJ -- giving up the guilt and the need to push herself past the limit, learning to think before she acts, etc.

The Hierophant/High Priest, representing either those who want the status quo, or those who wish to challenge it
or the Devil, representing BJ's belief that she can fix everything
I think I'm leaning toward the Hierophant. The card has a golden crown that fits in with Goldie's appearance, and the way he worked for the status quo and Luna's rule in spite of his own misgivings seems to me like a warning that BJ has the capacity to do great harm simply by doing nothing.

All I did was go to Wikipedia and copy-paste stuff here. the only reason I recognized them was the swords/cups. I seem to recall another tarot or tarot-type scene in another chapter. If someone could be so kind as to post the chapter #, I could do a brief rundown of those as well.

Remember, there are probably as many ways to interpret tarot cards as there are people who interpret them, if not more. It could just be foreshadowing her dangling from the beam in Flash Industries - i.e. she is a literal Hanged Mare. Or it could be that she'll eventually need to cut her head off and send it floating to get the only damn key that spawned in the level to open the last damn treasure room before Mom, only to find its the fucking bean AND I ALREADY HAVE A PERFECTLY GOOD ITEM GAME BUT I HAVEN'T GOTTEN ANY DAMN HEALTH OR ATTACK POWER-UPS SINCE MONSTRO WHY DO YOU HATE ME ISAAC? (can you tell what game I've been playing lately?)

It also fits with his friendship with Luna. The Hierophant is also known as the Pope, that is, the only human to be close to God.

"A handsome unicorn buck smiling, his mane and horn bright yellow"
The yellow horn and mane are clearly representing a crown, but that could be either the Emperor or the Heirophant. Which quite honestly are so similar they might as well be the same card; both represent power and authority, tradition, and so on. While the Emperor has more of a 'fatherhood' tilt, the Heirophant is about education and knowledge, as well as deception. Which doesn't really help any 'cause both of those apply to Goldie. I suspect it's the Heirophant, though.

I can imagine this song being this fic's anime opening or a boss theme in a fan-game. Very fitting to the character I must say.

Not everyone can have the voice of [insert awesome singer here; I'd want Devin Townsend for this, for my part, he can hit the notes this song wanted to hit and then some], sadly. But injecting some aggro into this song's vocals definitely would have made me like it more. The actual tune and beat and stuff were pretty enjoyable. Not all that complex, but fun. An enjoyable texture.

Well, some bad news regarding the FoE physical copy: due to PayPal nastiness, this printing has been cancelled. The money is being refunded, though, so I'll send the price of Somber's books to him once I get it.

More information here.

And that's why you don't want to use Paypal for anything serious.

Let it stand as a lesson to anyone wanting to mount any kind of business that Paypal is not to be trusted under any circumstances.

Seriously, you could fit an entire tumblr with Paypal Horror Stories...

Okay, thanks for letting us know. I'll definitely have to keep my eyes peeled on my paypal balance on this one. It's a damn shame but I don't hold it against the group doing it, just paypal for being fuckers as usual.
here's to hoping the refunds go through without any issue... I'd hate to lose all that money because paypal or being overlooked somehow.
