an evening with a picnic

hogwarts wlw aesthetics

gryffindor: forehead kisses, brushing her hair out of her face, boxes of chocolates, making each other laugh, blanket forts, seeing her in your jacket and feeling your heart flip, attack hugs, stupidly competitive “i obviously let you win, babe” moments, flying together, serenading her even if your voice is awful, embarassing amounts of pda, linked arms, doodling hearts on your homework, making a huge deal out of her birthday just to make her feel special, fond eye-rolls, tickle fights, sharing a blanket in front of the fire, hugs that last forever, getting on with her friends, catching yourself staring at her, grand gestures to try and impres her, playing footsie under the table, sweaty palms when you hold hands

slytherin: matching tattoos, skipping class to make out, “i hate you less than other people”, inside jokes, stealing each others clothes and makeup, bed-sharing, lil bit of healthy possessiveness, love letters, “i’m so proud of you”s, hickeys, never shutting up about each other and annoying the hell out of everyone else, it couple, matching jewellery, fierce loyalty, little gifts for no reason, open flirting, knowing exactly how she likes her coffee, lip-biting, conversations at 3am, ironic pet names, your arm around her, stupid dance parties in your underwear, meeting her parents, singing her to sleep, feeling like you’re missing something when she’s not there, being able to communicate just by giving each other a look, calling her your girlfriend around other people

hufflepuff: nose kisses, playing with her hair as she lays in your lap, bringing her flowers, baking together and getting flour everywhere, cuddling, knowing when to say sorry, picnics, walking her to class even if it’s the opposite direction to where you’re going, blushing, binge-watching series together, hand-holding, knowing exactly how to cheer her up after a bad day, board games, making flower crowns, adopting a pet together, “i’m trying to be mad at you stop looking so cute”, sickeningly domestic, sleepy mornings lying in bed, playlists of songs that remind you of her, one drink two straws, cute petnames, “you hang up first”, realising she’s your best friend, insisting on carrying her books, laughing against each other’s mouths

ravenclaw: poetry, bringing her food/drinks when she’s studying, reading aloud to each other, pushing her glasses up her nose when they slide down, cafe dates, quiet nights in, walks in the woods holding hands, cheek kisses, curling up in one seat, soft love songs, the way your name sounds when she says it, talking for hours, smoothing away the frown between her eyebrows when she’s stressed, shoulder rubs, whispered “i love you”s, scheduled date nights, little notes slipped into books, total support, the feeling of being known, helping each other out, cooking meals for her, slow dancing, “this reminded me of you”, learning all her little quirks, the smell of her hair

Warding meditation

Originally posted by hyoudov

This is about a 20-30min meditation.

Start by focusing yourself on your breath for 5 minutes.

Go back to a forest or other outdoor natural setting. Find your sacred space, your personal clearing in the woods that is only yours. It can be a picnic, a tent or a shack. You’ve decorated it yourself with herbs and a circle of flat, white rocks. There are two bushes there, stinging nettle, for protection. Be sure not to touch it. 

Sit here and notice your body, where your feet are, how your ankles and knees are bent, where your arms are. Bring your attention to your skin. We’re going to put a silver metal onto it. Imagine the liquid silver climbing up from your toes, up your legs, across your stomach, and up your back, over your shoulders, and up over your head and face. Let the metal harden like armor, able to move when you move but hard enough to keep out anything. Sit and feel what this changes in yourself and how the outside feels like now.

Now imagine this silver armor expanding like an egg around you and encompassing your aura. It is dark in here, in the silver metal. You can place your palm on the metal surface and feel its smoothness. 

Expand the silver out further until it is as big as your space, enclosing the picnic and even bigger to gather in the entire clearing which is yours. Let it reach into the trees and form a nice, smooth circle along the ground.

You can barely see the trees here. Let’s make the silver translucent. The hard material changes color, turns to glass, but unbreakable. We can see the trees now, the sun shining down, through the dome. Set your intention to your dome:  to be safe, to ward against all influences and spirits not in accordance with your own energy, with peace and quiet.

Lastly. let’s change its material. Let that hard dome shift in an instant to a cloud, airy and still there, still filled with your intent, but we are able to pass through it easily now, able to let our thoughts breathe through it.

Finish by creating a little project here. Gather some twigs or rocks or feathers and flowers and create a symbol or sigil of protection with them.

A pentagram, a spiral going counter-clockwise, circles within squares and squares within circles. As you create, send your intention into your symbols and creation.

Your space is now protected. Sit and feel the difference in its energy. Come back with a big inhalation. Ground afterward with a snack.

Pairing: Bucky x Reader

Summary: After the Avenger’s falling out, you were put in charge of putting Bucky together. Under King T’Challa’s orders, you were given a month’s time to create a new arm while simultaneously figure out how to get the triggering memories of his past out of his mind. As the time goes by, you found yourself confiding in him, despite his frozen state.

A/N: I mean, about fucking time Bree.

Romanced companions show how just much they've longed for Sole after Sole returns after being away for awhile? (Bonus points if it's fluffy and smutty) <3

Cait doesn’t seem to be very thrilled at first, but as soon as they’re both out of sigh, she kisses them like her life depended on it. After that, she just carries on, acting like it never happened, Sole knows better though and they keep smiling for the rest of the day.

Curie almost jumps into their arms the moment she sees them, hugging and kissing every single inch of their face. She doesn’t move more than 10 meters from them for a while after that, teling them everything that’s been happening while they weren’t there and asking a lot of informations in return.

Danse just keeps smiling like an idiot, saying ‘It’s so good to have you back’ every ten minutes or so. in the evening, he shows them exactly how damn good it really is to have them back. After that night, Sole swears to themselves that whenever they’re coming back from some another long trip, they shouldn’t be wearing any pants they like. (RIP pants)

Deacon pretends he’s just a merchant that came into a settlement and that he’d never seen before, though he instantly begins to hit on them. Sole doesn’t mind this little game, it’s rather entertaining falling in love with Deacon again and again. He drops the act the next day, usually..

Hancock asks them, if they’re actually there, or if he’s just tripping, but before they can answer, he says: “I think I’ll find out myself..” and pulls them to him, instanly planting kisses from the base of their neck up to their mouth. “Best trip ever,” he says as he drags them towrads Sole’s house, planting to have a little fun with his ‘hallucination’.

MacCready runs up to them as if wanting to hug them, but he stops right in fron tof them with a big smile. “Wow… you’re back,” he breathes out and if it wouldn’t have been for Sole finally closing the distance and embracing him, he probably wouldn’t have moved. His head drops onto their shoulder, like he didn’t get a good night sleep in days and the fatigue came at last.

As Nick sees them approaching, he goes straight into Sole’s house and waits for them there. When they walk in and close the door, he pulls them so close, they can barely breath. “So glad you’re back and you’re okay,” he says with a smile, as they part. He runs his metalic hand down their hair and onto their cheek, just looking into their eyes with utmost adoration.

Piper, similary to Curie hurls herself onto them as soon as she can, almost tripping and falling in the process of running up to meet them. Unlike most of the other companions, all she manages to say is a muffled ‘Hi’. Every time she looks at them later that day, she bites her lower lip and as the night comes, and she and Sole are finally inside the house and alone, Sole finds out why.

For one time, Preston forgets all about settlements, greeting them with a hug and a soft kiss and just cares for them for the whole day. He even sets up a picnic for them, so they can rest, eat and drink, all the while listening to them talk about everything they did while they were away, every while, here and then, stealing a kiss.

X6-88 approaches them rather casually, saying ‘I am glad you’re safe.’ After all they’ve been through, though, Sole hears more than what is said and knows that movement of the corners of X6′s mouth isn’t some random twitch, and makes sure X6 knows just how glad they are to see him again, too.

Hey, all of you who played or seen Until Dawn - am I only the only one who really really likes Dr. Hill? I saw that the majority of people seem to deslike him, because he failed to diagnose Josh’s schizophrenia, or because, in Josh’s illusions, he’s  reproaching Josh for his actions. But I really like the character, even in Josh’s head and I bet he is a very kind and caring towards his patients in the real life too. Also, amazing job done on acting.

Don’t mind me, just ranting :)

“I was sentimental about many things: a woman’s shoes under the bed; one hairpin left behind on the dresser; the way they said, “I’m going to pee …”; hair ribbons; walking down the boulevard with them at 1:30 in the afternoon, just two people walking together; the long nights of drinking and smoking, talking; the arguments; thinking of suicide; eating together and feeling good; the jokes, the laughter out of nowhere; feeling miracles in the air; being in a parked car together; comparing past loves at 3 am; being told you snore, hearing her snore; mothers, daughters, sons, cats, dogs; sometimes death and sometimes divorce, but always carrying on, always seeing it through; reading a newspaper alone in a sandwich joint and feeling nausea because she’s now married to a dentist with an I.Q. of 95; racetracks, parks, park picnics; even jails; her dull friends, your dull friends; your drinking, her dancing; your flirting, her flirting; her pills, your fucking on the side, and her doing the same.”

Mount Taranaki is without a doubt the most beautiful mountain I have seen. We took a trip to find it just a couple of days ago, it was a long drive but definitely worth it. We took the Mangorei Track to Pouakai Tarns. The path was stunning as it winds up and up through the enchanted forest. Just follow the boardwalk to Pouakai hut and head left towards the tarns ten minutes from there. There is a water tank at the hut where you are able to refill and even stay for fifteen dollars a night. We arrived for sunset, had a picnic and watched the mountain as the clouds circled and danced around the summit. If you walk back in the dark keep an eye out for the glowworms!



“Tell me of your trip to the DESERT!”

“I’ve just gotten here, I haven’t even unpacked our picnic!” the gorgon replied coyly as she settled into a comfortable position on the rocky overhang. With extended slowness, she removed a blanket from her wicker basket, then set about the dishes. She contemplated each of the various small condiment pots, cutlery—-


“Start with dessert? But we haven’t even had—“


Laughing, the gorgon turned her full attention to her watery companion. “Imagine a sea of sand instead of water, with air as crisp as it is soft here on the beach. Hot as a furnace during the day and as cold as the depths at night…”

The mermaid’s eyes grew wide with rapt attention.

Lord of Shadows: Thoughts and Theories

This book broke my heart, Everything was fine then it went to shit, then it was fine again and then it went to shit again, and then everything was fine, and I thought things were going to turn out really well, then everything went to ABSOLUTE SHIT. I’d give this book 5/5, because it was so jam-packed with so much action and different character and plot twists, whereas Lady Midnight was basically the Emma and Jules show.

I felt that Lady Midnight, though it was a good Book, wasn’t Cassie Clare’s best work. The first half failed to really draw me in, and I had to push to really get into the book. It was also just constant Emma and Jules, though I understand she was setting the scene and setting up their relationship, it just got a bit dull. The whole book was kind of a ‘meh’, but with Lord of Shadows, it was fast-paced right off the bat, with loads of plots and different POV’s and characters drawing me completely into the book. This book, in my opinion, was a huge jump from LM, in terms of success for me, personally.

I was getting a lot of asks on why I spoil myself for things, the reason is a) I can’t help it, and b) when something major happens in a book that I wasn’t expecting, I get really hyped up for a few days and can’t really concentrate on anything else. Sounds kinda weird, but spoiling myself works. Except some people gave me fake spoilers, so…

Anyway I’ve tried to organise my thoughts into sections, but it’s all a bit all over the place, here are my thoughts and theories!

We went to the PWCCSC picnic and had a blast. We even got to meet Link from @dalecorgi ! Ed was one of six winners for the trick contest. She sat, down, rolled over, sat pretty, stayed, and shook. I love that the picnic is not super crowded but there are always beautiful dogs and friendly owners. Sadly we had to leave before the hot dog eating contest.

Theresa May has announced that, if she remains Prime Minister after June 8th, her government will aim to overturn the ban on hunting foxes with hounds which was introduced in 2004.

Personally, I have a big problem with this.

It’s not that it’s a staggeringly cruel blood sport in which animals are encouraged to rip one another to pieces.

It’s not that it’s an environmental nightmare, where large hunts and shoots - replete with culvert-wrecking SUVs - can wreak havoc with local ecosystems in the name of bogus ‘conservation’.

It’s not that it’s a net-drain on local economies, generating only a handful of part-time jobs which often pay only ‘tips’ from landowners rather than actual lasting contracted jobs - with hunt-goers preferring posh champagne picnics over local produce.

It’s not even that it’s an antiquated social ritual with its roots in the imagined feudal past, which evolved as an elaborate ruling-class masquerade to display exclusive land rights over those of their tenants to other wealthy landholders.

It’s that I positively, deeply, truly, can’t abide knowing that at any given moment, somewhere in the leafy dells of the Costwolds or on the weathered moors of the Peak District, an inbred plutocrat is having fun.
