But, but, Fliz! I love the Tyldwick. It puts voices in my head.
I have to agree with this. There's nothing overtly creepy or macabre about the deck, just the deeply unsettling feeling you get in a completely empty room with your back to the door.
Yeah? And you're not scared of THAT?
Seriously, though, it's probably one of the most beautiful decks I have ever held in my hands. But I agree with Electric Maenad.
Can someone explain to me WHY you find the Thoth so scary? I don't get it. It's just very honest imho. Maybe that's what's scary, how direct it is? To me, the message from that deck - it has even said so itself - is about integrating one's inner light and dark, and self-acceptance. The most dangerous people to me are the ones who try to keep a lid on something, because you know it will explode beyond their control.
This made me laugh, but also brought back awful memories. The so-called Miami Zombie incident (please don't Google it if you don't want to see some truly horrifying images) took place half a block away from where I was at the moment. Now THAT was scary.
