Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost. 

From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king. 

― J. R. R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

Appreciation for Tumblr Witches

Honestly, i love tumblr witches. We tend to get a lot of hate from other more traditional witches, family witches, and older witches (Although obviously not all and most are very kind and helpful) for being too liberal with the craft. But honestly, i love tumblr witches and how validating the community is. I love how spells i see always have warnings for allergies, pets, and general advice. I love seeing simplified posts for spoonie witches, new witches, and closet witches. I love masterposts made just to help those wandering and lost, those who dont know where to start. I love how tumblr witches respect all witches regardless of path, religion (or lack there of), experience, sexualities, race, gender, etc. I love how tumblr witches seek to make witchcraft something everyone can do, not just a select few. I love tumblr witches; we are real witches.

Pairing: Jungkook x reader

Genre: smut

Word count: 3.7k

Description: Your boyfriend Jungkook was still a virgin, until one night both of you got heated up and it turned out a lot better than you ever expected.

Info: This is my first smut ever posted. I tried to make slightly sub!jk but my heart can’t lmao. Still I hope you enjoy it and please leave any feedback! And sorry if my english isn’t always correct, it’s not my first language. Enjoy y’all <3

Parts: 1 | 2 


You were laying on your bed, watching TV and getting more and more bored. Jungkook has been in the shower for only 3 minutes but it seemed like a whole hour. You just needed to do something exciting, to try something new and to spice yourself up a bit. Especially your sex life. Even though you and Jungkook were together for almost a year now, you still haven’t had sex. And that’s because he’s a virgin. Of course you respected him wanting to wait and you don’t want to rush into it if he’s still not ready. You love him, he loves you and that’s basically everything that matters. But every time he was lying next to you, kissing you, touching you or even just looking at you, you would immediately feel yourself heating up. “Why are you blushing again, honey?” he would always ask laughingly, finding it cute actually. You shook your head every time, even though you wanted to moan into his ear and tell him how much you wanted, no, how much you needed him. He is so adorable, sexy, hot and incredibly beautiful. You still couldn’t believe you got yourself a boyfriend like him. You know you’re hot yourself too, but still. You were such a lucky girl. Sometimes you entered the bathroom “by accident” when he was showering, so you could get a little sneak peak of his manly body. God damn, when you saw those shoulders the last time, you could’ve just cum right there by only looking at it. And those thighs…

“Y/N? W-what are you doing?” you heard a serious voice saying.
