I received some treats from a pirate queen - a precious relic, and a most scrumptious delicacy. I have captured the latter here for posterity, because it did not linger long in this world.
Elaborate golden bracelet
This golden bracelet was meant as a fertility talisman, or amulet, and many powerful goddesses have been woven into the bracelet. The snakes are woven as a herculian knot. The snake on the left is Agathodaimon and on the right is Terenouthis. The goddess Isis-Fortuna and Aphrodite are standing on the knot.

there’s definitely dairy in that gelato! ;)
Ah, yes. Quite true. So that’s double the portion of dairy to satisfy the food pyramid!
Love your N7 glass!
It is my favorite shot glass. It has nice heft to it, and it’s swanky~
Someone has awesome eating and sleeping habits kthx
Sarcasm, my dear pirate queen? How very like you. ^_-
Some gorgeous art for an epic tale of adventure!
Isabela had forgone her usual gold choker and tunic, and instead wore a form-fitting silk dress, royal blue trimmed with gold… It had a high neck with a collar and yet the precise tailoring and tight-fitting silk left her arms exposed. Instead of her customary leather gloves and shoulder armor, her dusky skin was bare save for a number of jewel-encrusted gold bracelets at her wrists. The pirate was stunning; Hawke couldn’t tear her eyes away.

Do you raise your eyes to the heavens and pose too?
Of course. It would be a pointless endeavor without the posing.
I’M JAVERT. DO NOT FORGET MY NAME. DO NOT FORGET ME.
I am twofold jealous. I wonder how my cookies stack up against those?
Two different worlds, my dear. Cookies from the homeland are flavored with nostalgia and warm, fuzzy bliss. Whereas your cookies are sinful delights.
