I’ve finally given names to the King and Queen! Woot! Historic! While most of you probably know that Chrysanthemums are flowers, some of you might not know that Carnelian is type of rock. It goes with the old poetic description of a relationship of a leaf and a rock, so that one partner is free and spirited while the other is grounded and reasonable. Of course in every relationship that dynamic switches back and forth so that one isn’t always the carnelian or the chrysanthemum. I can’t say why I chose Carnelian specifically, I just liked the rhythm and sound of it. Maybe I’ll retcon the series so that he’s always been in red instead of purple. 😛 More about this new story line next week!
