Now, admittedly, lychnomancy is not a very complex practice. It is a very basic form of divination involving three identical candles arranged in a triangle; you ask a question, light the candles, then focus on your query as you or someone else interprets the candle’s flames.
If one flame burns brighter than the others, the answer is a positive one. Wavering or flickering flames indicated a journey, or that you may encounter obstacles. If your flame spirals upward, enemies are plotting against you. An uneven flame indicates danger. If sparks occur, caution is advised. It is considered very bad luck if all flames are extinguished at once, but I have never personally seen this occur and consider it rare!
Despite being rather simplistic, I really do love this form of divination. It speaks to me on a level that I cannot describe and every time I read the flames to answer my own questions, it feels deeply personal.
I’ve taken creative liberty with this practice to spice things up every once in a while. Sometimes I will take a crystal that represents my emotions, charge it with my thoughts and feelings, and place it in the center of the three candles just before lighting them, as a way of focusing. This way the fire is able to draw on the power of raw emotion. Other times I will include tarot, using a combination of a single card and the three flames to find the answer to my question. It feels more detailed and dynamic this way.
I love what fire represents. It is the energy of life. It is passionate, raw and untamed. Dangerous, necessary, creative, and destructive. It is the most lively of the elements, and it can do so much. It is no different in lychnomancy. When practicing, keep that in mind. A simple candle flame can be so many different things, and it’s important to be in touch with your emotions when you practice any sort of pyromancy. However, be sure to balance yourself out afterward. If you do get this involved with your divination you’ll start to feel burnt out, like a candle at the end of its wick. Take a moment, drink some water - to put out the flames inside, of course - and breathe. Use the other elements to ground yourself. Sit on the floor, breathe deeply, and have some water nearby.
As a special gift to all of my followers, I will be keeping my divination requests open throughout the month of May starting today, April 30th! I will be answering questions using the very basic form of lychnomancy as not to exert myself with constant, draining sessions. Feel free to send me an ask at any time ( anon or not! ) with any questions you may have, and I will answer it as soon as I am able!
Words cannot describe all that you mean to me. I could spend hours trying to fit words together like a puzzle to fit into the enigma of you. However, even Shakespeare is at a loss for words when it comes to the effect your honey brown eyes have on me. These words will never do you justice or depict how your love forever changed me. You are the words that flow from my pen, you are every love song and quote that I come across. I do not write these words for you, but rather you are the words that beg to be written.
10 mile run today i watched the Ochako vs. Bakugou ep (subbed then dubbed) then Midoriya vs. Todoroki (subbed then dubbed) and i am dead and murdered conclusions are as follows:
i love anime physics because if any of this were real i think all of Ochako’s hair woulda been singed off.
like damn japan i admire your insistence that fire attacks are just Big Amorphous Bludgeoning Weapons
Bakugou’s…surprised and peeved “she’s not dead” slays me like look i know thats your “thing” but you cant expect her to be fucking dead. scratch that you cant be surprised when shes not.
Everyone, up 18 stories high in the high-rise bleachers, watching massive amounts of shrapnel rise into the air until an entire torn up car garage is floating in the sky, “hmmm…..Uraraka really has no plan…she should attempt something but shes not……shame….pity….”
i want a gag reel where all the pro heroes in the stands just. continually get smacked by the shit the contestants throw off the stage. people bludgeoned by falling rocks. an entire section frozen over in ice. like that spongebob Frycook Games episode.
WHERE DO YOU SEE FRAGILE
Kirishima for best 1-A Boy. Tetsutetsu Tetsutetsu for best 1-B boy. Combine for the ultimate Best Boy.
the phonecall scene. im not crying youre crying,. shut up
Izuku, stepping up on stage, doing yoga stretches and drinking Gatorade, “anyway time for a friendly and sportsmanlike game of Let’s Massively Fuck Up My Body”
Kissanime has started doing this “im not a robot” feature where it shows you five images, describes two, and you gotta click on those two. Anyway one of the descriptions was boy, injured and the image was fanart of Deku bloody and fucked up like i cannot make this shit up
Izuku: has 8 broken fingers and a broken arm. Todoroki: is cold. It’s anyone’s game.
TOP 10 ANIME DEATHS
Izuku punched him AT LEAST twice and that’s a real damn satisfying thing
“YOU HAVEN’T LAID A SINGLE SCRATCH ON ME.” END ME
For real I love that the point of Deku’s whole screaming fit is that he’s offended Todoroki wont beat him up harder. That’s on par with Bakugou being offended that Todoroki declared war on Izuku and not him.
Todoroki offends a lotta people
“IT’S *Y O U R* POWER” E N D M E
I love when the UA teachers have to play a rousing game of “fuck do we have to intervene before Izuku literally murders himself”
Todoroki’s fire side going the fuck up is just???? damn????? DAMN??? THIS FUCKING OP ANIME CHILD WHOMST I LOVE???
RIP in pieces Mama Midoriya who no doubt died of 14 simultaneous heart attacks when that final collision went down
SERIOUSLY THO THAT EXPLOSION WAS LIKE 8,000 KINDS OF SATISFYING.
The dust settles. Izuku wavers, then collapses, out of bounds. Endeavor lets out a whoot of victory. “That’s my boy!” he shouts. Slowly, Todoroki raises his arm in triumph. Wait a minute. Not in triumph. No look at his hand. He’s got his middle finger up. That’s what he’s raising. Damn all the way to the sky. Fuck You Dad he declares, like a true champion. Endeavor smiles but he’s dead inside.
This blog has grown into something I never imagined. It seems like yesterday that I was posting the first chapters of The City and of Weights & Measures. Sometimes I get really overwhelmed when I think about everything that has happened, especially in the last few months.
There are no words to describe how much it all means to me. You all have helped me keep going, not just as a writer but as a person. So many of you were there for me during one of the hardest periods of my life. Sending me messages that made my cry because I could feel every ounce of your love in your words. Making me suffer through all the jidevil posts you continue to tag me in.
I just hope that I can give back what you have given me. You all have helped me find my voice again. And I cannot thank you enough for that.
From the bottom of my heart, regardless if you are mentioned here or not, thank you. Everyone i interact with is a beautiful human being and I want to thank BTS for bringing us all together.
You asked me who I
am in my ideal world,
where I can create and
be whoever I want to be.
And I tell you, in another
life I’m bold, I tell the kid
in class to quit interrupting
the lecture because we are so
goddamn tired of him acting
like he knows everything.
I don’t text my mother telling
her that I am crying, I don’t sit
on the corner of her bed sobbing
at 3 am about someone that doesn’t
like me back or how much I wish
I could sleep,
I dye my hair pink and blue and
purple and I get a fringe and wear
dark lipstick and remember to file
my nails rather than let them break
and I dress in all black one day and
the next day in colors as vivid as my
dreams of you.
I travel wherever I want without a
worry in the world and I don’t think
twice about moving constantly and
I pack only a suitcase and I go to coffee
shops early in the morning and sit next
to someone in the sunlight and we talk
about politics or just good stories we
I take some time off from school and
I work and I live in a small apartment
with a faucet that drips but I keep the
windows open constantly and my neighbors
are so unconventional but they are still so
beautiful and they have the greatest stories
and they drink during the weekends and
during my free time I fill my walls with
pictures and poems and posters and I am
so bloody passionate that it drips through
I have many friends or I have absolutely
no one and I am content either way and
I go to parties and get to know everyone
but no one exactly knows me and they
try to describe me to others asking if
they’ve seen me too but they cannot
find any words that can describe the
way I held their hands.
And I tell you, in another life I’m crazy
and happy and weird and I talk a lot or
sometimes not at all and none of their
words ever hurt me because I am too
caught up in my own love, I am too
busy creating myself.
And I ask what would you be if you
could be anything?
And you tell me of all these divine things,
you’d ride the train and never get off and
see where it takes you, you would drive until
you ran out of gas in the middle of nowhere,
you would swim until your skin looks like
apple peels, and as you tell me of all these
wondrous adventures, where you are always
going somewhere, I realize you are just running
Hey, so I’m back with more fics. Honestly I haven’t read that many fics lately, kinda distracted by trying to write my own, here’s to hoping it goes well, right? But the fandom deserves something nice in the light of all the troll fics that were posted. I was wondering if I should update my old rec list? Or should I combine this one and the other one into one massive list? What do you guys think? Anyway, same formula, titles are links and bolded, italics are my commentary. Happy reading!
Shiro’s gone and all he has left of him are a shitty couch and a few pictures on his phone and dog tags that he’s afraid to touch because touching them feels like accepting the fact that Shiro will never touch them again. If he holds them for long enough any traces of Shiro’s touch will be wiped away and replaced, like they were never there to begin with, like Shiro was never there to begin with.
honestly saying that I love this team doesn’t cut it anymore it doesn’t describe the emotion and the passion that this club emanates and stands for. I absolutely adore Real Madrid with every single cell and i cannot imagine a life without them thank you for the stress and the laughs and the happiness and a lot of times the anger™ but I wouldn’t have it any other way. every single player on this team deserves to make history like they did tonight.
(Which Nobody Asked For But Y’alls Getting Anyways)
There are too many incredible artists and writers in this fandom, so this is an incomplete list of people based on who I interact with regularly, and whose stuff I silently fangirl over. Many of them have been supporters of my art, my fics, or the collaborative comics at Kiddy Corner, like On The Subject of Change.
Thank you to everybody, followers and friends alike, for their support!
Amidst the chaos of excitement from the most recent episode of Yuri On Ice, I don’t think some understand how important that kiss was. So I think I should explain it to those of you who are unsure of its importance. This is going to be a long post, so bear with me please!
In Japan, they are not as openly accepting of homosexuality as people in the US are. Normally, if you wanted to see two guys, or two girls kiss, you had to either watch hentai/porn or a certain type of genre known as, “Yaoi/Shonen-Ai,” or “Yuri.” (Note: You may still see two guys or two girls kiss in an anime that qualifies for neither of these things, but it will be a mature rating because of it.) This is still standard.
Now, why Katsuki Yuuri and Viktor Nikiforov’s kiss was important, was because it will change the future of the anime industry as a whole. Yes, you read this right. This show is making history in the most brilliant way possible.
Since Japan is strict about censorship laws and is a very conservative culture, they (studio MAPPA and the director) could not show the kiss in it’s entirety. They used Viktor’s arm as a clever censorship, to get around the censorship law.
If they had shown the kiss in its entirety, they would have either had to change their rating or their genre (or both), which is a hassle and will prove to have big problems for them.
The director of the show has always loved putting gay characters in her works, whether it’d be a gay male(s) or a gay female(s). She loves to break typical Japanese stereotypes and tropes in anime and manga that are commonplace for gay characters.
Now in anime, the most typical stereotypes for gay characters are usually as follows (I’m only going to be highlighting four of the most common tropes to avoid this list from getting even longer):
The Weird Foreigner-
This stereotype is common in an anime with foreign characters. These characters are usually from outside countries or something as simple as the neighboring town/city.
This cliche or trope depicts a type of outlandish or sometimes over the top male or female foreigner who are perceived by others as having homosexual tendencies (sometimes towards the main lead(s).)
They dismiss this characters homosexual tendencies as simply being a part of the culture from where they are from, or blaming their homosexuality on their “foreignness.”
The characters will try to avoid him/her and call them strange or weird, typically negatively. They will sometimes show other characters from the same country as acting the same way as the foreigner.
The Confused/Mistaken “Heterosexual”-
This cliche/trope depicts a character, usually a teenager or young adult, who has homosexual tendencies, coming to terms with their sexuality (usually at the beginning or middle of the shows run.)
They are told by the other characters that they’ll grow out of their tendencies, or worse, will attempt to teach them how to be heterosexual because the other characters believe that they are simply “confused,” or “mistaken,” about their sexual orientation. They will attempt to correct it by any means throughout the show.
Another worse stereotype that goes hand in hand with this one, is one I’d like to call:
The Infected/Diseased Homosexual-
This trope goes hand in hand with the previous one, and is sometimes influenced by it.
It depicts a homosexual character who can turn others gay.
Yes, you read this correctly.
This character is avoided like he/she were diseased or infected, hence, the name of the stereotype.
One look or touch, or something as simple as being influenced by them, can turn a character into a homosexual too.
Often times, the other characters will try to help the, “infected,” or “confused,” character by teaching them of their heterosexuality.
But wait, there’s more!
The Homosexual Pervert/Sexual Harasser-
This stereotype is the most common, and it is the most damaging stereotype/trope in anime and manga.
The homosexual character is depicted as extremely perverted and will do absolutely anything to do as they wish to any character of the same sex (typically the main character.)
This character may also touch, grope, or hold onto their desired character without consent and are typically represented as not taking, “no” for an answer.
On an even more damaging scale, these characters may also kiss, or attempt to rapea character of the same sex with no particular order or care for the feelings of the character they are attracted to.
The less serious on this scale, is a homosexual character that has an attraction to a character of the same sex, but they do not force themselves onto the character.
This character’s only purpose get in their desired character’s way, be obscenely annoying, or a nuance to the character or plot and may even be violent to the love interest of the character they are attracted to.
Which is not as bad, but is still a damaging trope nonetheless.
Not only do typical anime and manga use and incorporate these stereotypes into their material on a regular basis, but Yaoi and Shonen-Ai also use these tropes too.
Yes, you read right. The genre that features a gay love story/gay characters in an abundance, also uses these stereotypes just as much as other shows, if not, maybe more.
You might be thinking, “Lyra, how could a genre about gay characters incorporate these negative stereotypes just as much as your typical anime or manga?”
I’ll tell you.
I have seen a lot of Yaoi, I have read a lot of BL, and over time I have noticed a predictable cycle of negative stereotypes and unhealthy romances that, after a while, just become background fodder.
My most recent watch was JunJou Romantica, which was decent enough, but I cannot begin to describe to you just how many times I’ve seen the Homosexual Pervert/Sexual Harasser trope used in Yaoi, Shonen-Ai, and BL as a plot point.
Typically, the main character will be in denial about his sexuality. The main character then meets his love interest. Now at this point in the story, the love interest will either be the aggressor and sexually harass the main characteruntil he gives in, or there will be another character to sexually harass the main character, appointing the love interest to save the main character (usually out of jealousy or selfishness.)
When the main character is out of danger, the love interest will typically do the same thing to the main character as the previous aggressor was just attempting, but it will typically have a different effect because, “it’s you, and you’re different.”
Sound familiar? That’s because this is the exact formula for any BL or Yaoi story. There may be some changes or differences between some, but this is the absolute blue print for any type of unhealthy BL romance out there.
Not only is this extremely disengaging and damaging, but there is another strange and equally damaging stereotype that is typically selective to Yaoi and BL.
The Uke/Seme Mentality-
This trope is everywhere. In every single BL or Yaoi romance.
Now this usually is supposed to display who is more submissive and who is more dominant in the relationship. Nothing inherently wrong there, right?
Except when the uke is portrayed as more emotional, more womanly, and always submissive in the relationship. Especially when the seme is always portrayed as barely emotional, manipulative, and always dominant in the relationship.
This is inherently, imitating heterosexuality and is very inaccurate when it comes to two men or two women who share an equal attraction to one another.
Two men or two women in a relationship are equals, and one should not treat one as being the, “woman,” and the other as being the, “man,” in the relationship. They are both men/both women. They are equals.
Not only are these stereotypes negative towards gay characters in anime and manga, but there a ton of regular romantic stereotypes that are just as unhealthy and forced.
So much so, that any romance with these tropes is just hard to watch or practically unbearable to sit through.
Here’s a brief list of some of these tropes (these should be obvious/self explanatory so I won’t waste your time explaining them):
Attraction is instant/rushed.
Attraction is only valid between a male and female lead.
Characters decide they love each other within the first moments/days of meeting each other.
Conversations between the two characters are rushed with little to no importance.
The romance hinders the plot and/or does not progress it.
The romance does not benefit the plot/is practically meaningless.
The romance is only valid when the characters kiss or have sexual intercourse.
One or both partners say/do things to their significant other without their consent.
One or both partners assume that since they are in a romantic relationship, they can kiss or have sex with their significant other any time they want to, and will ignore when they tell them to stop or that they are not in the mood.
One or both partners will consciously ignore problems within the relationship, instead of addressing them.
One or both partners will not fully trust one another.
One or both partners are consistently jealous of their significant other’s friends, exes, or family members.
One or both partners will not let their significant other have their own space or privacy.
One or both partners often fight or have miscommunications over things that people with healthy relationships would be able to address, discuss, and understand.
Miscommunications are often created to further the plot, and will
Any romantic attraction between two men or two women is often invalidated and/or ignored entirely.
One or both partners are pressured into relationships because they believe that they could never truly be happy without a significant other.
When one or both partners disregard their significant other’s feelings towards their actions or words.
When one or both partners do not confront their significant other for their wrong doing(s).
When one or both partners will not admit when they’ve done/said something that hurt their significant other and refuse to apologies for it.
When one or both partners are manipulative towards one another.
When a romance is built on lies or false pretenses/expectations.
When one or both partners only show care or affection for their significant other during sexual intercourse.
When one or both partners are not sure of the other’s feelings towards them, even after they’ve had sex or continue to show affection towards one another.
One or both partners do not appear to have any chemistry but will still say that they love each other, even when there is no existing connection between them.
One or both partners will have “crushes” on other characters to create tension between the two love interests, even if they are already in an existing relationship with other characters.
When certain characters are homophobic or disapprove of the relationship just to create high stakes for the plot.
When one or neither of the characters are likable or interesting and yet you are still expected to care about the romance between the two characters.
When one or both partners will pretend to not be in a relationship because they feel like others will disapprove/make fun of them because of it.
When little to no conflicts arise to draw the two characters closer, yet they end up together regardless.
When the two characters end up kissing or having sexual intercourse as a temporary solution to a problem or miscommunication in the relationship, instead of discussing it with one another.
The development of the relationship feels unnatural or off.
One or both partners will not benefit or better each other because of their relationship.
Now seeing as how damaging these stereotypes can be in the anime industry and in romance in general, Yuri On Ice has managed to go above and beyond what any anime, manga, or romance has managed to do.
Yuri On Ice has either avoided or destroyed these tropes entirely, and continues to do so magnificently.
It has created both a healthy, unforced, naturally growing and developing love story that just happens to be between two men, and is also destroying some of the most damaging and commonplace stereotypes for romance and gay characters in the anime industry.
Since Yuri On Ice had the guts to take on these problems head on, instead of turning away from the obvious flaws of the anime industry, it has set the bar high for other anime in the future.
It has given us a much higher expectation for a healthy romance, well portrayed and matured homosexual characters, story, animation, and music. It will leave a mark on the anime industry and it will hopefully encourage other shows to do something like this in the future.
Now, Yuri On Ice has always been iffy for me (not that I didn’t like it, I love this show). The reason it was this way for me was because I was nervous and concerned that they would abandon Viktor and Yuuri’s relationship, or sweep it under the rug and never resolve the feelings these two characters had for one another.
Yet I had always had faith that the director would pull through, and they did so magnificently.
Now since Viktor and Yuuri have kissed, people have began to say that this anime should now be in the Yaoi genre/category. That simply cannot be farther from the truth. If you’re confused as to why this is the case, this post summarizes it perfectly.
When Yuuri and Viktor kissed (on screen, no less) I knew that Japan was changing. This is one of the first sparks, that will lead to a complete change in the anime industry. Now granted, Yuri On Ice was not the first to do something like this.
No.6 was the first to feature a well portrayed homosexual lead and an unforced romance between two men without changing their genre or rating (which is seriously amazing).
Just because Yuri On Ice was the second, does not mean that it has any less impact and importance. Now, a kiss between two male characters on screen, without any change in the rating and genre is astonishing.
Having a show that’s so driven to destroy these damaging stereotypes and tropes that are so common in the anime industry, gives me hope that other shows will do this in the future.
These two shows have set such a high bar for expectation from the media, and I have faith that Yuri On Ice will continue to make history.
A motherhood page I follow on Facebook posted this and I thought it was the most intelligent thing I’ve ever read about parenting/“mommy wars”. I thought it would be nice to share some positivity on this lovely Friday.
You cannot buy a parent’s love. I’ve never read anything describing my views as a parent worded this perfectly.
Ok so, I began this blog on December 9th, well, actually I’ve been on tumblr since 2013 (nice, old Naruto Era), yet, I consider this one the actual date of this blog birth, since it was the day I posted my first BTS Fanfiction - Sanitarium (which I still hold very dearly to my heart).
To be honest, even if writing has been one of my passions for many years, I never expected much from my own stories, especially since English killed me in more than one way (ah, it kicked my ass so hard during my high school days lol); yet, I surprisingly found an incredible amount of happiness in writing for seven lovely dorks - not to talk about the crazy, wonderful authors and friends I had the pleasure to meet here, people who helped me grow and who gave me some of the most pleasurable reading moments of my life :’)
But I was saying, I didn’t expect much from posting my fics, yet, nearly 5 months later, I reach my first mile stone. Really, I can’t believe it: 1k people are reading my fics, and supposedly they also enjoy them. It happened quite fast, in my opinion, and I also know I’ve been very lucky for many authors are amazing and still don’t have the exposure they deserve! It takes them a lot of hard work when they should really be appreciated a lot more! This is why, to celebrate this milestone (ok, compared to other authors is not that big of a number, but still I consider it an important accomplishment ;^;) I decided to do a special, big fic rec to share the talent filling this social!!
Some of these writers are super known actually, yet others have a smaller public: they have such a fantastic way with words tho, such a breath-taking creativity, that I just needed to tag them and link their stories - hopefully, some of you will fall in love with their work too; please, if so, go send them all a lot of love, for they are not holy amazing authors but also amazing people :’)
And I’m incredibly happy to have some of them as mutuals, if not even as friends <3 <3
Hello Loves! I have recently hit 500 followers so I decided to do something celebrating all of the amazing people I follow.

After 22 years there is so much to say and so many people to thank at this great football club. From coaches, team-mates and staff to the fans who have given me so much support down the years, I can’t thank you enough. There will be opportunities for me to speak further about this over the coming weeks.
I will decide on my future in due course, but for now I am committed to helping the team achieve success this season.
The club and I have always had a fantastic relationship, which will continue beyond my playing days. We had some really positive talks but with everything taken into careful consideration I have decided it’s the right time for me to leave. I’ve always been conscious that I depart at the right time, in the right way, and I feel that the end of this season is the right time for the club and I. I feel I still have plenty to offer on the pitch but understand that opportunities here at Chelsea will be limited for me. I’m eager to carry on playing and so will be looking to continue with a new challenge. I will of course always be a Blue and am desperate to end my final season as a Chelsea player with more silverware.
Finally, words cannot describe the love I have for our football club and our amazing Chelsea fans. I would like to thank each and every one of you from the bottom of my heart for the unbelievable support you’ve shown me over the years. You mean the world to me and every trophy we’ve won during my time at the club we’ve won together. I will never forget the incredible journey we’ve been on. Thank you so much for everything.
"I love you and I want you to stay with me for the rest of my life" - for your prompts ;)
A ring on his finger, sincere words at a temple in Hasetsu.
“I love you, and I want you to stay with me for the rest of my life,” Victor kisses Yuuri’s ring as he says these words with all the honesty and reverence in the world.
Yuuri smiles in return, a brilliant flush high on his cheeks, immaculate in his wedding tuxedo. The love that they have is matchless, a kind that Victor never wants to find with another person, because what he has with Yuuri is something that will change as they change over time. The relationship they have cannot be defined simply as lovers, as the idea of lovers only describes one aspect of their relationship.
“Until death do us part,” Yuuri vows, his expression fond.
God, Victor loves him.
The Living Legend skates an exhibition at Worlds, a solo to commemorate the end of his long career.
His only jump is his signature quad flip, and there isn’t that much surprise to those that know him when Victor falls on it. He is a little too old to be doing quads, after all.
The surprise is that he doesn’t get up afterwards.
“For the rest of my life” indeed.
(It turned out to only be eight months.)
Yuuri Katsuki fell in love at twelve, truly met the love of his life at twenty-three, married at twenty-four, and became a widow at twenty-five.
