Practice Meta #3: The Answer

Each answer refers to a form of divination, consisting of a prefix and the letters “-omancy.” (See the first three words of the flavortext for a little clue regarding this.) Each prefix can be found hidden in one of the Magic 8-Ball fortunes. Matching the fortunes to the answers and then indexing by puzzle number reveals the letters YOU CAN DO IT.

I’ve filled in the remaining answers; the original given answers are shown in bold.

1. INSECTS – ENTOMANCY – YEN TO MAXIMUM
2. TEETH – ODONTOMANCY – FOOD ON THE FLOOR
3. CLOUDS – NEPHOMANCY – PRUNE PHYSICS

4. OLD SHOES – SCARPOMANCY – HIS CAR PRANCES
5. BLOOD – HEMATOMANCY – THE MATH IS HARD
6. TREES – DENDROMANCY – GOLDEN DRAGON
7. KEYS – CLEIDOMANCY – UNCLE I DID NOT KNOW
8. FASHION – STOLISOMANCY – THE PISTOL I SAW

9. WHEEL RUTS – TROCHOMANCY – METRO CHAINS
10. FLOWERS – ANTHOMANCY – SO NOW I WANT HOPE
