Are you still alive?
Sprockey Featured By Owner May 6, 2016
Yes, though I don't use deviant art much anymore.…

If you were following my story, it lives here now.  I'm up to Chapter 24.  Formatting for PDF's to upload here just became a massive pain.

Thank you for the fave - I note that your comment was on the 9-12 set of cards, 13-14 is also sketched, in my scraps.

Cool, thanks!

I can't wait for 15-22. I am still turning your decision to make NMM the Hermit in my head. I always pegged Zecora for the hermit, but symbolically speaking, NMM works for reasons I can't fully explain. That's how you know you're onto something. ;)

I really hope that one day you finish these, and invest in getting actual cards printed. I would buy them.

During my stream when I was brainstorming all this, I had Zecora pegged for the hermit briefly as well, back when I had Spike as the Magician and Twilight as the Priestess (because I was trying to be gender-true), but I realized through some research that the Magician doesn't HAVE to be physically male so long as his approach to knowledge is analytical - likewise, the priestess's wisdom had to be represented by "heart knowledge" - but was no less well informed than the Magician. The only character that can rival Twilight in knowledge is Zecora.

Thus Zecora was out for the Hermit. She wasn't quite right for it anyway - because the hermit makes the choice to be alone, and would never reach out to anyone for any reason. He also would NEVER offer advice or help, because he is completely wrapped up in himself. That's just not her! - so as I approached him, I was taken by the fact that one of his symbols is the moon, but Luna didn't work, as she is also social (though awkward). But then we had that time where she took the journey of walking by herself, and while the results were poor, it was an important time for her.

Since the Hermit is on a journey of self discovery - and segregates himself from the world's ways in order to accomplish it, there is only one character who does this in the whole show - Luna as NMM.
