My blog. I just post whatever (FEMINISM, boyfriend, my music, fandom, funny shit). ♥ By the way, if I've unfollowed you, it's nothing personal. You either don't tag your posts or I'm just not interested in what you're posting. /shrug. Also, please don't send me chain asks ("send to # people"); I don't care if they're positive or negative. Anonymous and submissions are turned off due to raging assholes on the Internet.

Luna Redecan
Lorelei Decan (60 days, versus all the other months with 58 days)
Just want to add my own Abyss speculation about the months. I made a chart some time ago, but it was handwritten. I redid it in Adobe Illustrator using Abyss fonts and colors.

I noticed that the months go in order in Decan (Rem, Sylph, Undine, Gnome, Ifrit, Shadow), then the opposite for Redecan (Shadow, Ifrit, Gnome, Undine, Sylph, Luna) with Luna and Rem obviously being opposites. This chart immediately formed in my head, and this should be the proper revolution of Auldrant (assuming it goes counter-clockwise from the top like the Earth does) with the sections for each month.
 
Lorelei starts the Decans, and drawing a line halfway through the orbit places the line halfway through Shadow Decan. I imagine that since Shadow Decan begins inside of the Decan half of the months, they just say it’s entirely Decan to quell any confusion. I always wondered why the months were so screwy with the names, but once I noticed a pattern and drew it out, everything suddenly made sense.
 
(And this is conjecture, but perhaps Rem Decan, versus Lorelei Decan, starts the year because of “the rising of the sun.” I also have headcanon that the last two days of Lorelei Decan are used for New Year’s festivals and days of respite.)
