[IA] Is there something you can do which would cause a loss of Archival Fortunes?

I jumped into IA this morning to complete the relevant daily endeavor (earn 1 verse).
I checked my Fortunes, just out of habit before starting, and was sitting at 1,910.
After earning the verse, I jumped back to the Index, but then I decided to stay and finish the cycle, so I could grab some extra Fortunes, to put me over 2,000.
So I went back into the Wings, and picked up where I had left off.

When I finished the cycle, and received the customary 220 Fortunes, I went back to the Index again.
I checked my Fortunes, expecting to see 2,130, but instead, I now have 1,410.

I didn't die at all during the cycle, so what could I have done to lose fortunes?
Was it going to the Index mid-cycle?
I'm confused...

      Not that I am aware of. Did you maybe buy some mystery verses?

      I don't think so, unless I did it by accident somehow. (I wouldn't put it past me...)
      When I came out of the Wings, I ran to Ool to see if he had anything interesting for 2,000 fortunes.
      And that is actually when I noticed I only had 1,410.

      ETA:
      I mean, if there's not a known penalty toward Archival Fortunes, then I MUST have done something stoopid, so I'm not
      gonna stress it.

        I also seemed to lose some archival fortunes the other day. At least I think I had about 72K and after a cycle or two I went to the repair merchant where I had 71K, which puzzled me but I didn't look more deeply into it. Maybe I'm not crazy after all. :p

        I guess I'll just have to pay attention and catch if it actually happens, and under what circumstances. For example repairs are supposed to cost gold, but what if they somehow consume fortunes?

        It's stupid easy to accidentally buy items in there. I caught myself doing it once.

        as far as im aware there are no penalties for currency, you have to explicitly buy items to reduce your currency

        I always have my finger off any buttons when looking at the shops, since some items are instant purchases without a confirmation. Maybe that's what happened to you?
