another post about Metal Gear.

So the tarot blog has stalled, on, of all things, Strength. It'll be moving again soon enough; I'm having a dry patch on all three of my blogs, and on my other writing projects. :/ My words will return from their holiday eventually. Til then, I can play with other people's words.

I like taroting fandoms. I've done it a few times before - might dig up some links from my Deadjournal, mmm. Til then, have some Metal Gear. And because it's Metal Gear, all these cards are reversed unless stated otherwise.

The Fool - Raiden. "I don't want to share my past with anyone. I just want to forget about it."

The Magician - Otacon. "I realised you can't wish for happiness - you have to make it happen."

High Priestess - Frank. "An undying shadow in the world of lights."

The Empress - Olga. "No, not just comrades! Family!"

The Emperor - Ocelot. "It's all part of our plan to make the world she envisioned a reality."

The Hierophant - Vulcan Raven. "The path you walk on has no end. Each step you take is paved with the corpses of your enemies. Their souls will haunt you forever - you shall have no peace..."

The Lovers - Eva. "Does it have to be one or the other - love or hate?" "Between a man and a woman? You bet."

The Chariot - Liquid Snake. "We're losing our place in a world that no longer needs us. A world that now spurns our very existence."

Strength [upright] - David. " Never doubt yourself. Just let it make you stronger. Learn something from it."
[reversed] - Roy. "I know those feelings of powerlessness, frustration that you feel everyday. You've tried to play the boy scout out there in Alaska, but you can't race dogs in the snow forever."

The Hermit - Sniper Wolf. "Now I could see war, not from the inside, but from the outside."

The Wheel [upright] - Naomi. "You mustn't allow yourself to be chained to fate, to be ruled by your genes. Humans can choose the kind of life they want to live. The important thing is that you choose life, and then live."
[reversed] - Fortune. "Lucky in war and nothing else."

Justice - Jonathan. "Prove your loyalty... Not to justice, not to your country, but to yourself."

The Hanged Man - BB. "I'm not going to live my life the way The Boss did!"

Death - Vamp. "I died once already. I cannot die twice."

Temperance - Psycho Mantis. "But are different. You're the same as us. We have no past, no future. We live in the moment. That's out only purpose. Humans weren't designed to bring each other happiness."

The Devil [upright] - Volgin. "I am about to show you what hell is really like."

The Tower - George. "We're all born with an expiration date. No one lasts forever."

The Star - Gene. "We'll meet again, in a new world, one of my own creation."

The Moon [upright] - Ursula. "Kill you before you spawn your accursed snake children."
[reversed] - Elisa. "It was the first time in our lives our visions weren't one and the same."

The Sun - Meryl. "Listen, I've used a gun like this since I was eight years old. I'm more comforatble with it than I am with a bra."

Judgement - The Sorrow. "But make no mistake...the dead are not silent. Now you will know the sorrow of those whose lives you have ended."

The World [upright] - The Joy. "But the Earth itself has no boundaries. No East, no West, no Cold War. And the irony of it is, the United States and the Soviet Union are spending billions on their space programs and the missile race only to arrive at the same conclusion. In the 21st century everyone will be able to see that we are all just inhabitants of a little celestial body called Earth. A world without communism and capitalism... that is the world I wanted to see. But reality continued to betray me."
