Magical/Ritual Lore:

Meteorites have long been held in fascination by humans. They have been thought to be gifts from the gods and goddesses. Certain meteorites, such as the Kaaba stone in Mecca and a stone thought to represent the Great Mother Goddess of Phrygia, have been worshipped as symbols of divinity.

A four-ton stone has been revered in China as a holy object since the 1200’s. The stone, shaped like a crouching ox, resides in a Bhuddist shrine. Recently, however, a team of Chinese geologists studied

the stone and determined it to be a meteorite that landed about 1,300 years ago. The stone is no longer worshiped. In Babylon the meteorite was a powerful magical protectant. It was thought to remove all evils due to its strange appearance and the "roar of its awful might.“

Peridot is often found in meteorites. I held a small cut meteorite recently and studied the green peridot crystals that were packed inside it. The stone was worth about $3,000, so it didn’t go home with me. Recently, tiny diamonds were found inside meteorites that fell in Mexico in 1969-the first discovered that had formed off of our planet.

At one place or another on Earth, meteorites were used to explain the origin of life. If rocks fell to the earth from space, so too could plants, water, animals and people.

Symbolically, meteorites can be viewed as the spiritual penetrating the physical, as astral power, divine order or whim, though a friend of mine says they’re the melted remains of spaceships from distant galaxies!

Magical Uses:

Meteorites are unearthly things, literally. They possess the powers of intergalactic flight, of movement, of speed, and of energy unhindered by gravity.

Use them in rituals of protection. Place one on the altar near white candles; or carry in the hand.

They are also called upon to promote astral projection. A small meteorite or a fragment of one is placed beneath the pillow during attempts at conscious astral projection.

Yes, they are available for sale at reasonable prices. I visited the Reuben H. Fleet Space Theatre’s gift shop in San Diego a few days ago and found small meteorites for $3.00.

"#give bucky and sam a buddy cop film like yesterday" filed under: things i did not consciously realize i needed until now. WHY DOESN'T THIS EXIST ALREADY COME ON UNIVERSE


we already have a great basis for it (see: ‘can you move your seat up?’ ‘no’ and ‘you couldn’t have done that sooner?’ ‘i hate you’) and tbh, i would watch two and a half hours of sam and bucky bickering over everything while steve is, for once, the patented Mom Friend in the background

‘guys. guys. we’re supposed to fight hydra, not each other. look, i can’t believe i’m saying this, but maybe don’t fight, like, all the time?’

bucky gives him the office glare

hi! i don't have an ao3 account but your fic "afterwards" is too good to not review. it's excellently written and the characterization is spot on but it also kicked me in the face with feelings; it's a lot like that "you're gonna suffer but you're gonna be happy about it" hp quote :') i also really enjoyed thunderstorms & summer kings (tbh i'm surprised they don't have more kudos). tumblr's messaging system isn't exactly conducive to long messages so i can't leave a detailed review w/o [cont]

[cont] spamming your inbox (and it’d mostly be me incoherently keysmashing anyway lol) but they really are fantastic fics and i really enjoyed your writing style - probably one of my favourites i’ve encountered in this fandom :) also you seem cool and we have a couple of fandoms in common so \o/

Nothing wrong with keyboard smashing; I do it too – we all do sometimes. It’s just one of those things.

I am honestly amazed by the nice reviews I have gotten on that fic? Like, I was super worried it was OOC and after writing it I almost didn’t publish it?? So the fact that so many people have told me they liked it was just … completely unexpected. So yeah, thank you so much! Comments like yours are what inspire me to keep writing tbh :D
