the Lady would absolutely slip a few tarot cards into a game of the Marvellous

The Lady knows her opponent counts cards. She knows they know there's not enough bats left in the deck for them both to complete a Treachery. Their bets tell the whole story. They go all in. The Lady calls, of course, and lays out her hand. A Treachery of Bats versus a Treachery of Bats with a high Master- borrowed from the Tarot, of course

the extremely good problem with this is that it risks turning the Marvellous into a yu-gi-oh-ass or blank white cards-ass free-for-all, which is honestly hilarious

the idea of going to the guy whose whole thing is "Historian of the Marvellous" and telling him "alright, so, a Catapult Turtle now shatters an Evil Castle's Flotation Ring, unless a Swords of Revealing Light is in play, and we all got these cool motorcycles, and-" is a fucking hilarious AU

the only thing funnier than the Lady running her own, secret Marvellous, possibly right under the Master's noses, is Hearts finding out that she added a bunch of ridiculous new rules and now a few have started playing it from moving vehicles

@BestGirlGrace I think gloves slot implies she's got (at least) the tarot in one of those arm-mounted yugioh duel thingies

@lioness the description for the tarot says they're "easily concealed inside a glove", so you know they're the perfect size for a duel disk
