Monsters & Queens
These are little alchemy-based entries based on a deck of playing cards -- the back story is a Queen of Hearts in a magician's deck dies of a broken heart, but she makes a deal with the magician of the deck and she comes back to life to make a deal with the King of Spades -- since she is an alchemist, she will take the lead that has poisoned his heart and show him how to turn it to gold, then light, and these are the lessons she teaches. I would prefer to present this in a different way -- the flat, linear scrolling of blogs should have been yesterday's news by now, but the entries are a study in silliosity...

This is the first phase of Monsters & Queens (which is the name of the game Hearts in the deck play), and with alchemy -- there is a focus on fables (code for alchemic equations), paradise, as well as women's work and child's play. This is an offshoot of a segment I had when I ran a news web site, but this quickly took over...
