we have a war to fight, let's move along.
meanwhile in all the bleedin' and fightin', i've been readin' and writin'
and we just happen to be in the greatest city in the world!
the private and intimate life of the house:
you'll be back. soon you'll see. you'll remember you belong to me.
natasha & bolkonskys:
here's an itemized list of thirty years of disagreements! sweet jesus!
no one else:
look into your eyes, and the sky's the limit, i'm helpless! down for the count, and i'm drowning in 'em.
i have never been the type to try and grab the spotlight. we were at a revel with some revels on a hot night.
natasha & anatole:
trying to catch your eyes from the side of the ballroom.
how could i dO this?
the duel (part one):
no more sex, pour me another brew, son!
the duel (part two):
can we agree that duels are dumb and immature? sure, but your man has to answer for his words.
dust and ashes:
i imagine death so much, it feels more like a memory. is this where it gets me? on my feet, several feet ahead of me? if i see it coming, do i run, or fire my gun, or let it be? there is no beat, no melody.
i take the children to church on sundays, the sign of the cross at the door.
i'm so sorry to bother you at home, but i don't know where to go, and i came here all alone.
lord, show me how to say no to this, i don't know how to say no to this. in my mind i'm trying to go, then her (his) mouth is on mine, and i don't say no!
why do you write like you're running out of time?
sonya & natasha:
be careful with that one, love, he will do what it takes to survive.
i know my sister like i know my own mind, you will never find anyone as trusting or as kind. i love my sister more than anything in this life, i will choose her happiness over mine, every time.
rumors only grow, and we both know what we know.
no one has more resilience, or matches my practical, tactical brilliance!
one last time, relax, have a drink with me. one last time, let's take a break tonight, and i'll teach you how to say goodbye.
in my house:
most of them in my own house. DAMN! you ever see somebody ruin their own life?
a call to pierre:
*jefferson voice* whaaaaaaaaaaaaat
i'm not here for you.
pierre & anatole:
congratulations. you have invented a new kind of stupid. a damage you can never undo kind of stupid. an open all the cages in the zoo kind of stupid. truly, you didn't think this through, KIND OF STUPID.
natasha very ill:
i'm erasing myself from the narrative. you have torn it all apart, i'm watching it burn.
pierre & andrey:
don't lecture ME about the war, you didn't fight in it! i almost died in a trench, while you were off getting high with the french!
pierre & natasha:
if you see him in the street, walking by her side, talking by her side, have pity. they are going through the unimaginable.
the great comet of 1812:
let me tell you what i wish i'd known, when i was young and dreamed of glory.
Growing up in the south I have the fondest memories of sun tea made on hot days, using nothing but the sun’s warm rays to help the infusing process. I love sun tea because because it’s almost impossible to mess up, there isn’t any boiling water to worry about and almost no way to burn the leaves.
However, as a witch I have a new found appreciation. A simple drink can become a way to fill yourself with different magical properties. The sun itself is a catalyst for spells for vitality, clarity, health, happiness, and confidence. The best part is, ITS SO EASY.
FIRST: Pick the tea leaves for what you are trying to accomplish. Green tea is great for igniting passion, sexual health, and love. Black tea represents nature, strength, and is good for expelling and removing negative energies. Then we have herbal teas which are a whole other story with lots of different flavors and herbs with expansive options and magickal properties.
SECOND: Pick a few crystals to put on the lid or around the pitcher. Here I have crystal quartz and carnelian. I chose quartz for its ability to cleanse and enhance the crystals around it, and carnelian to help with anxiety and depression.
THIRD: Place outside or in a window with a lot of light and let the sun work its magic. During this time focus on what you are trying to manifest. Put all your intentions into the witchy brew. Remove tea bags when it reaches your desired color (I use six regular bags per two liters, but it’s up to you how strong you like your tea). Pour over ice and enjoy.
Optional: you can add cut fruit to further the intention. Strawberries, lemons, mint, or blood orange.
Some amazing combinations are:
🌞 Hibiscus tea and rose quartz for love
🌞 Black tourmaline and black tea for spirit cleansing
🌞 White tea and grapefruit for purification and uniting with the goddess of your choice
Really, the sky is the limit here. Try everything, there are no wrong answers.
Let me know what you guys try! I hope you enjoy this :)
SUPER EDIT: It was brought to my attention that I forgot to include some serious food safety tips with this, so here they are.
I’ve been drinking this for 24~ years? With no issue because I do the following:
- use purified water, most bacteria comes from the water itself in addition to things like unsanitized pitchers and what not. - do not leave the tea out for more than the intended brewing time (15-30 minutes). - only make what you intend to drink that day. - keep in the refrigerator no longer than 72 hours. - use tea leaves that come from sealed packages and are not expired. - if tea ever develops ropey looking strands, toss it and wash the container with hot water and soap (I also will rinse with vinegar).
my favorite thing about cryptids is that you can’t disprove anything anyone says about them. I can say mothman is gay and sucks the flatwoods monsters dick all day long and no one can disprove it. I can say I have sex with a little grey alien every single night at exactly 2:03 a.m. and none of you could say otherwise. bigfoot is a butch lesbian! nessie likes to eat pennies in her free time when she isn’t caring for her nephew Cthulhu!!! the sky is my limit and the government can’t do shit
