Fat women are expected to dress in ways that are ostensibly minimizing but that, in reality, are really about us occupying less visual real estate. No bold colors, no stripes, nothing that would ever make us look bigger. It’s not that some of those rules are genuinely about looking slimmer – it’s that we draw less attention to ourselves when we comply with fashion rules. We occupy less space, metaphorically if not physically. We minimize ourselves for the comfort of other people.

0. The Fool
In many esoteric systems of interpretation, the Fool is usually interpreted as the protagonist of a story, and the Major Arcana is the path the Fool takes through the great mysteries of life and the main human archetypes. This path is known traditionally in Tarot as the Fool’s Journey, and is frequently used to introduce the meaning of Major Arcana cards to beginners. (Wikipedia)
Here’s the first Hannibal tarot card! It’s going to be a long project - there are 22 Major Arcana and I’m almost sure I won’t draw them all.
It seemed to me that this card perfectly matched with Will, who is (initially) unaware of the danger that is following him.Please, don’t repost, just reblog. Thanks! :)
