I was lucky enough to catch this on a restock after I'd already sampled the materia from this series and falling in love with it. Pre-release I'd drawn the Empress when divining for the series, so I had quite a few items of materia to draw experience from. From the moment of ordering I worked through some old poetry and found ways to refine some pieces I wasn't in love with and ended up processing some unexplored feelings and making those 'meh' poems into ones I'm now proud of. I haven't had this pendant for long but when I wear it there's a sweet air to everything that I do that feels benefic and timeless, and conversations are more soulful and geared toward making space for more inspiration in life.
