any funny spell backfiring stories?
Mostly just those two about the sigils, lol.
My spells have never really backfired in the sense that they did not do as I intended them to, or their effects were reversed somehow and sent back to me negatively. Like, those two were probably the only cases of misfiring that I have experienced, but as soon as the sigils were destroyed and nullified, it righted itself, there were no long lasting effects or anything.
I have had some spell mishaps though, which I am definitely happy to talk about!
× There was sea salt on my air mattress in my old city for, like, two weeks - I had spilled it trying to make some powders and just…never cleaned it up, lol. Just slept on some sea salt for a while. Super cleansing, mildly uncomfortable lmao.
× Or, as an extension of the sea salt thing (because these happened on the same day): @draconicastralguardian was over at my house once, and we were doing coven-y biz (translates to: practicing magic in the same room), and I was passing around one of the powders I just made for everyone to smell (our coven was four people, one for each traditional element, it was perfect); Icarus went to smell the powder, and inhaled too sharply and almost snorted it. xD
× I was doing a spell a separate time the covenbros were over, and I almost burnt my hair leaning over candles too closely. (This happened way too often, but now I have no hair really, so not a concern, woo!)
× During that same spell where I almost burnt my bangs, I had extinguished a candle by accident from laughing to hard at something one of the guys had said (proof that spellwork never needs to be 100% serious). I went to relight it, tipped it over on its side, and spilled hot candle wax all over my PJs like a boss. I didn’t get burned or anything. I just kinda looked down, went “that was dumb,” and we all laughed about it. :p
Seriously, though, don’t be an idiot like me and practice appropriate fire safety when working with candles. ^^
I hope that entertained you! ;)
