Fundraiser update

Hi, all!

If you donated to Leah's GoFundMe and would like a reading from Madame, you need to let me know here (or at jude DOT mclaughlin AT gmail) that you did so. I'm not the administrator for the GoFundMe. :)

Here's my latest:
If you want a single-card draw from Madame Destiny, for a general day read or a specific question, you can get it for the low, low cost of $5 -- and even better, I will match your donation for every single-card reading requested until midnight Saturday April 22 (eastern daylight time) up to $100.

Get a reading from Madame! Double your donation!

Fundraiser!


Hi, all,

My long-time friend Leah -- the original person upon whom the character of Lucid, the dream courier, in Wonder City Stories and Ephemera (and the rest of the web serial) was based -- has just been diagnosed with metastatic inflammatory breast cancer. She is disabled and has not been able to get federal disability, so she doesn't have income.

She has already started chemo, because her particular form of cancer is very aggressive and they need to knock it down ASAP. In the near future, she's facing surgery and probably radiation.

For more details, check out her Youcaring fundraiser.

To help her out, Madame and I are running a fundraiser. ALL proceeds go to Leah.

What you get for what you donate:
$10: A single card draw interpreted by Madame Destiny.

$25: Either a 3-card answer to a specific question or a 5-card general reading, interpreted by Madame Destiny.

$50: A full 10-card reading interpreted by Madame Destiny.

$100+: A full 10-card reading interpreted by Madame Destiny AND a signed copy of Wonder City Stories, Ephemera, OR Absolute Power!: Tales of Queer Villainy (only 5 of this last book available)

$500+: A full 10-card reading interpreted by Madame Destiny, signed copies of all three books, AND a thank-you in the acknowledgements of my next Wonder City Stories book.


You can leave a comment here, in the PayPal donation, or send me email if you don't want me to post your reading on Dreamwidth and would rather have me email it to you.

Here are links to some of the earlier readings Madame and I did:
One-card Readings, Part 1
One-card Readings, Part 2
One-card Readings, Part 3
One-card Readings, Part 4
Full reading #1
Full reading #2
Full reading #3

If you're not interested in a Madame Destiny reading, please do contribute to the Youcaring fundraiser and/or signal boost it and this one.

Madame Destiny Full Reading



Madame Destiny's theme today is clocks: tiny clockfaces adorn her dangling gold earrings, there is a half-dollar-sized gold watch resting just below the crisp collar of her buttoned white shirtwaist on a gold ribbon, and her left wrist sports a loose gold watch-bracelet. Across her neatly-tailored brown waistcoast drapes a magnificent triple-stranded heavy gold Prince Albert watch chain from one brass button to the watch pocket, and the fob of the watch chain is also a tiny watch. An enormous ring shaped like a grandmother clock lines her left middle finger like armor. The folds of her voluminous brown skirts periodically display a large golden watch hung like a nun's rosary from Madame's wide leather belt. Close examination reveals that the fine pattern on her waistcoat is, again, tiny clockfaces. This is only topped, so to speak, by the fine, tall, black silk tophat whose band is adorned all round with clockfaces.

Madame Destiny ticks from all sides and angles. They are all set to different times, and the resultant hum of unsynchronized ticking is suprisingly soothing.

She gently cracks her knuckles, one at a time, and smiles across the table. "A full reading today, yes, dear? It's been a while since I last saw you. Let's see what the Universe has been thinking about you lately."

Madame Destiny: Trylon and Perisphere reading


For [personal profile] thefairymelusine

Today, Madame Destiny is sporting a wrap that appears to be made of brown and white speckled feathers and a close-fitting cap of same, over an ankle-length black dress with sweeping wrap-like folds across her body, leaving a generous amount of admirable bosom exposed. That bosom is adorned with a large Bohemian-garnet-and-seed-pearl pendant on a doubled gold lorgnette chain. Her earrings match the pendant, as do the bangle bracelets on each wrist.

"You want one of my Perisphere-and-Trylon readings?" she says, picking up her deck and shuffling it expertly. "Well, let's have a look at what the Universe has to tell you."

Wonder City Extra: Soundtrack of Renata's Captivity (so far)

Many of Renata's episodes in this story arc have been punctuated by the music she's listening to at the time. I thought I'd do a little collection of that soundtrack -- let me know if I've forgotten something!
