Imagine Bellamy finding an old photo of Clarke with her family or with Wells in the ark and keeping it in his pocket for 6 years.
Taking it out and looking at it whenever he missed her too much, or just at the end of every day so he wouldn’t forget how she looks like
heello! i recently ordered from acorn press and still have a couple chillypig charms still in my possession so i thought it’d be a good opportunity to do a comparison/review! all the charms are 2″ clear acrylics
this’ll mostly be for people scoping out new companies, or for people who’re interested in making charms for the first time!
NOTE: in all the pictures, charms with a phone strap are chillypig and without are acorn press
i’ll be fairly nit-picky about everything and be as in depth as i can to provide max info, but please keep in mind this is all from personal experience! it’s not the end all be all
this is gonna get pretty long so under the cut we goo
Eric writes down 25 things he finds special/different about himself. Which is a change from his usual self-depreciating personal writings. The last point is kind of bittersweet, since it references his hopes for the future.
25 things that make me different
1. My love for a computer game
called DOOM. Doom is such a big part of my life and no one I know can recreate
environments in Doom as good as me. I know almost anything there is to know
about that game, as I believe that separates me from the rest of the world.
2. My dreams. Dreams are one of
the most personal things for a person, and I know my dreams separate me from
3. My car! No one else except my
best friend has a little puny car with a RAMMSTEIN sticker on it.
4. My bullet hanging from my
5. My berserk(?) and zippo that
I always have in my right pocket.
6. My backpack. With its
customized whiteout writings.
7. I can bite off parts of a pop
can using only my teeth.
8. My personal views on other
people (aka, KILL ‘EM ALL.)
9. My first impressions of
10. My penmanship. I haven’t
seen anyone else write quite like I do.
11. My knowledge of fireworks.
12. My knowledge of
13. My scars.
14. My anger management problems
15. My attitude towards people
16. My diversion record.
17. My friends.
18. My patented way of killing
spiders and crickets.
19. My nickname, just as long as
there isn’t too many copy cats out there.
20. My music.
21. My fence signs in my room.
22. The large collection of
bullet shells I have.
23. The black box and it’s contents.
24. My family.
25. My memories of the past and

I woke up in a cold sweat, curtains blowing in the wind. I rolled over and grabbed my phone and started at the bright screen for a second as my eyes adjusted to the light. There was a text from (Y/N) saying to meet her on the roof of the drive-in at 3 and that she had to tell me something, it was 10 to 3 so I rolled out of bed and pulled on a pair of gym shorts and a sweater. Making my way down the stairs, careful not to wake dad, I crept into the kitchen and grabbed some food in case she was hungry and made my way out the door towards the drive-in. As I walked down the street all I could think of was what she had to say. Was something wrong? I began to get nervous until I saw her beautiful figure on the roof of the drive-in.
I know there are a lot of young witches who need to be discreet about their craft, so I’ve made some tips for how to practice witchcraft and still be discreet. Just putting a little disclaimer, I don’t practice all of these myself (like the color magic) but I thought they would be useful to include, nor do I claim to know everything, I constantly learn just like everyone else.
1) keep a small notebook/sketchbook
A pocket sized notebook is helpful for any witch but expecially for being discreet. Drawing sigils and writing spells in the notebook is a way to cast spells in the open with no one noticing. The pocket notebook is also a great system for artists and writers as drawing and creative writing everyday really improves skill, and if someone happens to look inside the book doesn’t scream witchcraft. I personally like using my own leather bound pocket book but the mini composition notebook also works and is less noticeable. A tip for doing the sigil or spell magic is when you write or draw imaging you intend in order to charge it and draw a circle around it to cast it (you don’t have to do this but it helps some witches). Putting a charm or sigil of hiding on the notebook will also help it not be too noticeable
2) Use online books
The Internet is an all around helpful source, but it’s expecially helpful for discreet witches who want to do reasearch. Getting hard copy books are great but can easily be seen lying around your room. It’s much easier to just use online books and you can find more subjects than just in a library. If you’re worried about someone looking through your history you can always use incognito mode or simply delete the history and cookies after you’re finished.
3)Wearing simple crystal jewelry
Crystal jewelry may seem like it’s obviously witchy but with current fashion trends crystal necklaces are pretty common. Stones and crystals are used in magic all the time and have their own meanings, while it’s not uncommon for people to know that crystals have meanings it’s easy to brush off wearing crystal jewelry as just a fashion choice. When getting crystal jewelry don’t buy from stores in the mall like hot topic or forever 21. These stores sell fake crystals, some places claim that their real but 99% if the time fashion stores sell glass instead of crystal(unless you go to an actual crystal/spiritual store, these are usually real).
4)Do rituals outside
The practice of rituals can be hard to do if you’re trying to be a discreet witch. Doing rituals outside help with not getting caught in the middle of a ritual. There is still a chance someone could catch you but it’s a very small chance and they’re most likely a stranger you’ll never see again. If you use incense in rituals being outside helps the smell not linger where people can smell and become suspicious as well. Being out in nature while doing rituals also helps green witches with spiritual energy.
5)Use scented candles for candle magic
Having lots of candles can raise suspicious with some people, scented candles fix this. Having one or two scented candles doesn’t seem abnormal and is pretty common. Yankee Candle has a great variety of color and scents, you can pick by a color you commonly use or by scent. Herbal scents such as rosemary and lavender double as color magic and scent magic. Make sure when you pick out candles pick a scent you like and that the smell won’t give you a headache.
6)Keep a small magic box
Having a small box is good for storing little witchy items and because the box is small it can be easily hidden. Keeping a candle, lighter, a few small crystals and some herbs, are a few basics that can usually fit in a small box. You can get a small wooden box at craft stores for about a dollar and decorate it or keep it plain, or even use an empty Altoids tin. Another way to keep it hidden is putting a charm or sigil of hiding. Small magic boxes are also helpful for transportation to outdoor rituals.
7)Use color magic when getting dressed
Using color magic when getting dressed is a simple form of magic and no one can tell you’re doing witchcraft. When putting away your clothes you can easily charge the clothing with the intent so it’s ready for when you wear it. If you’re like me and wear the same color everyday you can write small sigils on the tags of clothing.
8)Write sigils in lotion
Writing sigils onto your skin with lotion or make up foundation are a great form of discreet witchcraft. Once you write the sigil and rub it into your skin it can no longer be seen therefore no getting caught. Rubbing the sigil into your skin helps imbue the magic into you. This practice is great for glamour spells.
9)Use whatever is in the kitchen for herb magic.
Buying or drying your own herbs could possibly raise questions, if you’re doing herb magic just try to use whatever herbs you have in the kitchen. The best way to do this is to just put the herbs in meals you’re having. When taking herbs from the kitchen just remember not to do it too often and get caught.
10)Avoid making an alter
This is kind of an obvious thing not to do. Having an alter is a very easy way to get caught and you don’t need an alter to perform witchcraft. If you insist on having an alter you can make a pocket alter which is basically the same as the small magic box in tip #6.
Discreet or not pocket stones are useful. Pocket stones are just stones or crystals you keep in your pocket or in a pouch throughout the day. Most people won’t be going through your pockets so it’s good for a discreet crystal witch.
12)If you want to collect crystal also keep a rock/mineral book
Crystals are a fairly witchy thing but just adding a rock guide book makes it look like a simple collection which is pretty common. Whether your a discreet witch or not rock guide books are a good things to keep around if you want to learn.
13)Herb magic potpourri
If you make herb pouches use nicely scented herbs to have the pouch double as potpourri. If the pouches double as potpourri they’re more inconspicuous. Places the pouches around dirty laundry or in drawers, placement helps the pouches look more like potpourri and less like witchcraft.
I hope these tips are helpful to some people and if you have any questions feel free to ask!
