and a cent to my name

How to dress store bought candles.

For those of you that don’t make your own candles you can still do something a little special for the store bought ones.

I get my 7 day candles from the 99cent store. Before using them for any spell work you need to make sure that you clean and cleanse them. I like to make a solution of salt, water and lemon essential oil spray it on a cloth and clean the glass and the top of the candle. This part is extremely important. You don’t want some 99 cent store workers energy on the candle not forgetting all the 100′s of people that might have picked it up and put it back :-p 

The candles that I made today are to be used on my altar for Hekate. This candle is pretty basic. If I was doing a spell candle I would write names, actions or something like that on the glass.

Remember, while you are dressing your candle concentrate on your intention for the candle. Thinking about what you’re gonna cook for dinner while making it will tarnish the affect.

What you need

  • Candles
  • Oils (I’m using homemade Hekate oil)
  • Screw or stick (For the holes)
  • Herbs
  • Cotton swab

Step one

Clean your candles and tools

Step Two

Take the screw or stick and pierce holes into the top of the candle. I use a pretty big screw so that I can go all the way down to the bottom of the candle.

Step Three 

Use a dropper to put one drop of oil into the hole. Then use the cotton swab to spread the oil through-out by dipping it in the hole. 

*If you don’t have a dropper you can cover the tip of the cotton swab and coat the inside that way*

*When working with oils, Less is more. The first time I ever used oil on a candle I covered the top with tons of it and it set on fire lol. So be careful!!!*

Step Four

Place small amounts of your chosen herbs over the holes and then use the cotton swab to push them inside. You can add as much of the herbs as you wish, it’s just easier to push down if you do small amounts at a time. I have in the past put small chip crystals down the holes too.

*Some witches add a layer of herbs to the top of the candle. I don’t do that with these ones because I leave them burning for a while and I don’t want the herbs to catch fire while I’m in another room*

Step Five

Once you have finished your candle it’s time to activate it. Some people write a spell or a blessing to say as they light it. Others say their intent for the candle out loud. Find the right way for you.

For this candle I say a little prayer (that I wrote) to Hekate and let her know that these candles are dedicated to her.

Thank you for reading

“i work at a little market/store and u came up to the register with a candy bar but didn’t have enough money to pay for the entire thing. but don’t worry, i got you, fam” au: I saw this and my mind screamed, "ANDREIL".

ok i combined both of these and neither is fully what you asked for but i hope you like it anyway!!!


It’s hot the way only New Jersey gets hot, America’s swampy asshole, thick damp air under an impermeable layer of smog, the sun mocking him from where it hangs between a few grey clouds that indicate but don’t promise an upcoming rain.

Neil’s jog is taking much, much longer than usual thanks to an unbearable amount of traffic. It doesn’t help that he’s had to reroute himself to get some British candy bar from the one Wawa that—without explanation—carries British candy bars.

He gets there eventually, eight miles away from his apartment and so fully dehydrated that he’s questioning how the fuck he’s going to make it back. Wawa is, as always, an oasis: refrigerators line the walls, and within them, blissfully, is cold water. He grabs a bottle and drinks half of it in the aisle before even going on the search for the Mars Bar.

The candy aisle has nothing, just mostly-depleted cardboard boxes of Snickers and Twix. The international section is mainly Latin American and Asian goods, and then, crammed between coconut water and Goya goods, a box of Mars Bars.

Like the boxes in the candy aisle, it’s empty.

What was your favorite line from sETHER?

the whole thing was a literal religious experience.

But some of the lines I GAGGED @:

“Been through mad crews, you disloyal hoochie
Now all of a sudden you back with Drake and Tunechi?
After he said you sucked his dick, you back with Gucci?
Who next, Puff, Deb or Fendi? You a A-list groupie”

“And to be the Queen of Rap, you gotta actually rap
The whole industry know that your shit is a wrap
No, to be the Queen of Rap, you can’t have a ghostwriter
And that’s why this is my house, Flo Rida
Niggas done seen Drake penning, Wayne penning
And since your first boyfriend left, bitch ain’t winning
You a Internet troll, a Web browser, I’m sorry
You can’t get her online with out Safaree!”

“Mentioning guns, you Pussy Galore, James Bond
Only time you touch a trigga is when you fucked Trey Songz”

“Coke head, you cheated on your man with Ebro
I might leak the footage of you sniffing them ski slopes
They gassing you up, but you been on E, though
“Pills and Potions,” yep, you been on E, hoe
Got your ghostwriters back, so you think you lit”

“Only the kids believe in you, you St. Nick”

“I’m jealous? Bitch, you was happy when they took me
Best thing that ever happened to you was when they booked me”

“You claimed you never fucked Drake, now that’s where you took me
You fucked the whole Empire, who you trying to be, Cookie?”

“And stop talking numbers, you signed a 360 deal
Through Young Money, through Cash Money, through Republic
Which means your money go through five niggas before you touch it
Any videos, promotions come out of your budget
Endorsements, tour and merchandise, they finger-fuck it
You make like 35 cents off of each ducat
I own my masters, bitch, independent
So for every sale I do, you gotta do like ten”

“Stop comparing yourself to Jay, you not like him
You a motherfucking worker, not a boss like Rem”

And I saw Meek at All-Star, he told me your ass dropped

He couldn’t fuck you for three months because your ass dropped

Now I don’t think y'all understand how bad her ass got

The implants that she had put in her ass popped

I was like, “Damn, 90 days and you couldn’t have box?

Did she at least compensate? Start giving you mad top?

Her name Minaj, right? She ain’t throw you some bad thots?”

He said “Nah,” that’s when I knew you was really a trash bop


“Talking shit about me to a deaf bitch
And usually I have sympathy for the impaired
But not when you hard of hearing from untreated gonorrhea”


“I’m the bad girl when she the one out here misleading the black girls?
All these fake asses influenced by that girl
Dying from botched surgeries, what a sad world
But before the butt job, you was a Spongebob”

“"Guess who supports a child molester? Nicki Minaj
You paid for your brother’s wedding? That’s hella foul
How you spending money to support a pedophile?
He a walking dead man, sending threats to him
I guess that’s why they call you Barbie, you was next to Ken
Talkin’ ‘bout your money long and your foreign sick
Why you ain’t help your bro hide his cum from forensics
You probably somewhere overseas, foreign sick”

DEAD.

“Meek, Drake, Safaree, I see men in your pants
We call that Jelani, get it? Semen in your pants”

VH1, watch this
You just got bodied by a Love & Hip-Hop bitch

Molly got her happy ending

I see a lot of posts saying Molly Hooper deserved better, poor Molly or Molly is such a weak character. Really, are they all watching the same show. So here I am trying my best to negate them.

I think she is the strongest and  the most badass character on the show.  You don’t need to be a consulting detective, an ex-army man, an ex- super agent, the British Government, a DI, the widow of a drug dealer or a dominatrix to be considered badass.  Look at our sweet pathologist Molly, she dated and dumped Jim Moriarty (the Consulting Criminal) and she was so freaking  casual about it.

She wasn’t scared or worried even after knowing who Jim really is, and can we please talk about how she casually calls him “Jim” , whereas every other character addresses him by his full name or Moriarty as they are all a bit scared of him. It’s still a bit unclear as to why Jim let her walk away unscathed even after “she ended it” (my Molliarty shipper heart has its own reasons though). Anyway this is just one of the instances to show that Molly is neither a weak nor a timid character. 

Now coming to the ILY scene, a lot of wonderful meta is already written about it but I would like to add my two cents to it. Firstly, I think Jim Moriarty is the one who told Eurus about Molly because the Jim we all know ( come on he’s a genius) would take into consideration the various possibilities regarding The Fall. He would have considered the  possibility of Sherlock going to Molly for help, as he knows Molly loves Sherlock and  would help him regardless of what people say.  I think Jim always planned for Molly to be a part of The final Problem. Anyway coming back to the ILY scene, I don’t know if this was deliberately done by the writers or not but there is an important thing we tend to miss.  John “ I see but I don’t observe” Watson thinks the coffin is for Adler and Mycroft “ I’m the smart one” Holmes  thinks the coffin is for somebody who loves Sherlock, both of them are wrong because the person who is in the coffin doesn’t write their own epitaph or the engraving “I Love you”. It’s the person who buries them, in this case it’s Sherlock who has to bury Molly if she dies, who writes the epitaph. So the whole point of the scene is to get Sherlock to admit his feelings and say the words to Molly. He most definitely means it when he says it the second time because that is the look of realization of a man who has fallen in love for the first time.

Molly deserves to have her love and feelings returned by the man she’s always loved and that is exactly what happened in TFP.  Even Loo Brealey in a recent interview said “ After playing Molly for seven years it was great to do her justice and give her a good send-off if it is the end…” I think this means Molly got her happy ending and we all know what her happy ending is and more importantly with whom.  So I don’t understand from where this ‘Molly deserves better’ posts are coming from.

My point being Molly got her happy ending and there is no need to take pity on her or call her weak. Thank you very much

Okay so a rp blog I follow has gotten me deep into Host x Wilford and I just I want some hcs because holy shit my sons

sure, i’ll see what i can come up with! what would their ship name be hmmm…. hostache? 💛

  • wilford always makes sure that host has a chance to speak his mind, or narrations, during meetings. he usually hits his hand on the table or covers other egos’ mouths so they’ll be quiet and listen to host.
  • wilford’s a very bubbly personality, but at the end of the day, he likes to mellow out and lay with his head on host’s lap and listen as host tells some story.
  • wilford likes to add in his own two cents in story time like, “once upon a time there was a valiant knight-”  “is he handsome???”  “yes wilford, he was handsome.”  “but he wasn’t as handsome as me, right????”  “of course not, wilford.”
  • host hates changing his bandages in front of anyone, even though wilford says that he won’t judge. but wilford respects him and he does make sure that they’re snug on host’s face so they don’t accidentally unravel before they go out in public.
  • host enjoys classical music, so wilford makes sure to have some on in the background. it’s the one thing host can enjoy without having to narrate over it. 
  • that being said, they dine with classical music on in the background and afterward, wilford takes host’s hand and attempts at slow dancing with him but it ends up with host narrating their steps so wilford can follow along. the two end up giggling like dorks.
  • although host can state how wilford looks like, he does enjoy using his hands/touch to explore wilford’s face. he immediately picks out wilford’s mustache and strokes that for a few moments. wilford loves it.
  • sometimes nights are rough for host and he gets nightmares that cause him to wake up screaming. he immediately covers his eyes so wilford won’t see, but blood stains his hands. it doesn’t phase wilford, and he quickly hands over bandages before taking host into his lap to comfort him.
Writing Commissions

So I’ve decided to open up writing commissions, and have them be a regular thing

You can view samples of my work:

On Archive Of Our Own
On Tumblr

Prices range from $0.01 (minimum) to $0.15 (maximum) per word. You pick your own price per word and word count. Please don’t try to go lower than one cent per word, I won’t budge on that one cent minimum because I don’t want to deal with that kind of math.

For perspective, at one cent per word, each thousand words is worth ten dollars. 

If you ask for a 1000 word story and the final word count comes out to be a few words over the extra words are free and you only have to pay the agreed upon $10.

I will do any fandom and I’ll also do original fiction, just be sure to provide some background information if you want me to write your OCs. I can either send you a PDF or post your commission on AO3 (in other words, you won’t have my permission to upload whatever I write under your name, whether it’s fanfic or not).

Message me on tumblr (my PM’s are open to anyone) and we’ll get started. You have to be comfortable with giving me your email address (obviously I’ll have to give you mine as well) but if you’re just inquiring you don’t have to give it to me immediately (just after you’re sure you want to buy).

What I won’t do:

–NSFW/Smut
–Incest
–Pedophilia

SJM Podcast - Episode 1.01: ACoTaR, A Reread

Despite multiple technical errors (Harry’s fault), severe disorganisation (Harry’s fault), and someone forgetting to take their happy pills so they can edit sanely (also Harry’s fault), it has finally happened. The Sarah J Maas themed podcast, Sarah En Maas, has finally been born into this world.

Join us now for the first time as we venture into the world of Sarah J Maas through her first book in the ACOTAR series, ACOTAR itself. Revisit the joy that is Tamlin the Tool, recall simpler times where we thought the biggest problem we had was some odd sickness, and swoon once more as Rhysand makes his first big entrance.

Special guests include Lucia’s Bilbo Baggins impression, Leslie and her insight into our collective one true love, Rhysand, and Harry caring about small, dumb things no one else wants to discuss.

We hope you enjoy the discussion with us, and if you have any thoughts, feedback, questions, or just want to join in and share your two cents on the topics covered, feel free to message the cohosts at @squaddreamcourt and @Abookandacoffee on tumblr, or message us @ the podcast tumblr.

Available to download/listen through google drive HERE

Available @ Soundcloud HERE

COMING SOON (Hopefully) TO ITUNES

This episode starred @my-name-is-fireheart as Lucia, our resident romance novel expert and professional Tamlin Hater. The fanfiction she recommended was by @valamerys​ not @illyriantremors​, apologies, and it was It Hurts to Become (Rated T). (However Illyriantremors ALSO has an amazing fanfiction featuring Nesta with wings)

Housekeeping Notices: We are STILL open for people to volunteer as guests on future episodes. So far we have recorded a couple (ACOMAF, ACOWAR Theories, Explicit Content in Fic, 2 Author Interviews, and have others scheduled soon) but the sooner you contact us, the sooner we can get you into the episodes you want to contribute in the podcast to. Thank you so, so much to everyone who has shared their insights thus far, you are all charming and delightful and well worth commiting to recordings for listening back to.

At 1 AM I’ll still be sipping vodka out of a plastic cup with his suppression littering my neck but this time it’ll be different.

And on Friday nights six months from now you will still find me dripping fluorescent light rolling a two cent straw over my tongue and crunching words between my back teeth while empty screams of adrenaline drown my ears over a five dollar game with no meaning. Maybe this time the boy next to me will still recall my name after two grams and a car ride.
Maybe this time my throat won’t thicken if he doesn’t.

In two weeks my teeth will still rattle at the slightest conflict and it still won’t be as loud as my voice was at 4 AM when we screamed into the snow from the frost bitten windows of your car. You chose your car because it was fast. I chose you because my hands didn’t quiver when you spoke to me.

Three years from now I will still press my cold hands to warm skin to siphon the heat and still the shaking and your name will still drip off my tongue like the summer you were named for.

And you will think you know me.

But you won’t know that after four months I stopped calling myself an artist because without your face cycling in my mind like a 50 cent run in the laundry mat I couldn’t create anything worth more than the paper coiled around the cigarettes in my left pocket. I smoke now.

And you won’t know that I filled one page to three books with the memory of the shy shade of green that dappled the brown iris of your eyes when the sun splashed your skin. I hope they will notice how the splatter of freckles on your nose like a discarded paintbrush’s last hoorah mimics the slivers of green. I love that green.

Soon I won’t spit out beer the temperature of bath water anymore and size 6 will slide off my waist instead of size 14 clinging to it and I still will fill the silence with chants of what if what if what if because the emptiness reminds me too much of how hollow my stomach is and I won’t burst the capillaries in my knees on spit-slick tile and instead will stain my ribs with lip prints.

But I still will knot my fingers in the fabric of your shirt
And will whisper when you lean close to me.
Yet it will be different.

Because I won’t be 17 and you won’t be 16
But I still will beg of you to remember me
remember me
remember me.

Please.

—  I don’t know who I am anymore but I know I was better when I was with you

I’m writing this post out of sheer desperation, and have avoided it for quite some time. I’m an 18 year old woman living in a semi-rural area of Washington, not known for being terribly safe at night. And as of two hours ago, I am completely homeless without a cent to my name. To make matters worse, the homeless shelters in the area don’t do intakes until 1:30 pm next Monday, and it’s currently 5 in the afternoon on Thursday. I’m typing this from a library, but even that closes after 9 pm.

I honestly do not know what to do. I don’t have any friends here who can offer me a place to stay any longer than they have, and my significant other is on the other side of the country.

I need help. Any help at all. If you can offer any, my paypal is brittanyhjones1998@gmail.com

Please, and thank you.

anonymous asked:

can u like rename some of the yansim characters? their names are sooooo fuckin bad an i liked the names u came up with for oka an osoro

Sure, anon! The “punny” names are really stupid and not very creative. They’re not even proper Japanese names, unlike Hanako’s and Taro’s and Ayano’s.

I’m only going to be doing the rivals (except for the teachers) and the club leaders (except for the photography club), so if you want me to do other characters names, just ask!

I did a lot of research for these names, but some I got from @kokona-octodogs. Her renames are very creative!


Osana Najimi –> Teiko Niijima

Though I don’t really mind Osana’s name, I feel like it could be better. Besides, it won’t make much sense if put in the way Japanese names are put (last name, first name).

So, instead, I believe Teiko Niijima would be a good fit for Osana!

Teiko (貞子) means “upright child”. Upright means “strictly honorable or honest”, which I think relates to Osana’s personality very well. I see Osana as someone who doesn’t beat around the bush, someone who’s not afraid to be bluntly honest with someone.

Niijima (新島) is the name of a volcanic Japanese island in the Philippine Sea that is prone to earthquake swarms. Osana’s color scheme consists of warm colors and she seems like the type of person to have a shaky temper. So, this last name would be a perfect, subtle pun for our favorite tsundere!

Amai Odayaka –> Amai Hachimitsu

Amai’s first name is okay, since it is an actual Japanese name. Amai (甘い) does mean “sweet”. However, it’s…not a compliment in Japanese. If someone says you are “amai”, it means that you are being naive or shortsighted. Yikes, but Amai can mean other things if you use different kanji!

If you write Amai as 亜真愛, it will be the combination of “a” (”second”), “ma” (”real, genuine”), and “ai” (“love, affection”). The “real love” or “geniuine affection” can relate to Amai’s caring nature, while the “second” is a reference to her being the second rival.

As for her last name, I don’t think Odayaka would work. It’s more of a word than a surname, which makes her whole name kinda weird. Imagine meeting someone named Naive Gentle or Shortsighted Gentle! Instead, I think Hachimitsu should be her surname instead. Hachimitsu (蜂蜜) means “honey”, which alludes to Amai’s role as the cooking club president.

In short, I think Amai Hachimitsu would be a better fit for the second rival!

Kizana Sunobu –> Okuni Yūzaki or Himeko Yūzaki

Kizana is one of my favorite rivals, so I am very pissed off that she got stuck with such a stupid name! Good thing I got a few suggestions for her name.

I have two option for her first name: Okuni and Himeko.

Okuni (阿国) is a reference Izumo no Okuni, or Okuni of Izumo. She was the creator of kabuki theatre. This alludes to Kizana’s role as the drama club president.

Himeko (姫子) means “princess child”. Since she is a himedere, this alludes to Kizana’s personality perfectly!

As for her last name, I suggest Yūzaki!

Yūzaki (結崎) is the birth surname of Kan’ami Kiyotsugu, a renowned Noh actor. Again, this also alludes to Kizana’s role as drama president.

Instead of Kizana Sunobu, let’s go with Okuni Yūzaki or Himeko Yūzaki.

Asu Rito –> Yumiko Mizuno

Like many of the “punny” names, Asu Rito is basically “athlete” in Engrish. Though Asu is name, I feel like it doesn’t really suit her.

Instead, I think her name should be Yumiko Mizuno.

Yumiko (弓子) means “archery bow child”. Archery is a sport and I think it’s common for schools to have an archery club in Japan. This alludes to Asu’s role as the sports club leader.

Mizuno (水野) means “water field” or “water wilderness”. This alludes to Asu also being the swim team captain.

Oka Ruto –> Amaya Kuroba

If you already saw my post about my two cents on yansim, then you already know what name I think is better for Oka. Oka’s another one of my favorite rivals, but I never really liked her name. I always thought it didn’t really fit her, especially when I learned that her name was just a play on “occult”.

Amaya (雨夜) means “night rain” and Kuroba (黒羽) means “black wing”. It’s a pretty spooky-sounding name, perfect for our occult gal!

Therefore, Oka Ruto should change to Amaya Kuroba.

Osoro Shidesu –> Shinobu Tsuyoshi

Again, you probably saw this coming if you saw my two cents on yansim post. This name is probably the silliest out of all the rivals, which is not good for a scarily strong person like Osoro. It’s basically the phrase “I am frightening”, which is stupid.

Shinobu (忍) means “endurance” and Tsuyoshi (剛) means “strength”. This is perfect for a strong, tough girl like Osoro!

So, why not go with Shinobu Tsuyoshi instead of Osoro Shidesu?

Megami Saikou –> Kimiko Saikou or Noriko Saikou

Alongside Kizana and Oka, Megami is another one of favorite rivals. I actually find her name funny, since it basically means “supreme goddess” (Saikou, Megami) or “goddess supreme” (Megami Saikou). However, I found some first names that I think suit her more. She’s supposed to be a Mary Sue-type character, but she really isn’t a Mary Sue.

So, instead of Megami for her first name, how about Kimiko or Noriko?

Kimiko (君子) means “noble child”. This alludes to Megami’s high status and her role as the heiress to her family’s company.

Noriko (法子) means “child of law”. Since Megami is all about following the rules, I think this name would be perfect for her!

Kimiko Saikou is nice, and so is Noriko Saikou. What do you think?

Geiju Tsuka –> Aya Yoshida or Hiroshige Murakami

Geiju’s name literally means “artist”, which is too on the nose. How about Aya Yoshida or Hiroshige Murakami?

Aya (彩) means “color”, which alludes to him being an artist. After all, artists work with colors a lot.

Yoshida (吉田) is a reference to a 20th-century Japanese painter and woodblock printmaker named Hiroshi Yoshida, who was an important figure of the shin-hanga style.

Hiroshige (広重) is reference to another famous Japanese artist. This is the name of a ukiyo-e artist.

Murakami (村上) is yet another reference to a Japanese artist, this time to Takashi Murakami. He is a contemporary artist.

Gema Taku –> Takumi Kōzuki or Takumi Shigeru

I was so confused when I first saw his name, until I learned it was basically “game otaku”. Then, I got pissed.

How about we go with Takumi Kōzuki or Takumi Shigeru?

Takumi (巧) means “skillful”. I see him as a very skillful gamer, someone who can beat your ass at a game all while smirking like a smug asshole.

Kōzuki (上月) is a reference to Kagemasa Kōzuki, the founder of Konami.

Shigeru (茂) is a reference to Shigeru Miyamoto, a game designer of Nintendo fame.

Uekiya Engeika –> Tsubaki Fujita

Ugh, I cringe every time I see her name. It’s basically “gardener gardener”. How uncreative!

Why not Tsubaki Fujita?

Tsubaki (椿) means “camellia flower”. Tsubaki has an interesting meaning in Japanese folklore. The tsubaki is an evergreenn tree that does lose its flowers petal by petal, but rather dropping them all at once to the ground. Because of this, it’s been associated with death and strangeness in Japan. I see Uekiya as a sweet, hippie girl. She is seen as strange by her peers, since hippies can be strange sometimes.

Fujita (藤田) means “wistera field”. This relates to Uekiya being a gardener and how she spends most of her time at the gardening club.

Miyuji Shan –> Setsuko Yoshiki or Kotone Wakana

Miyuji’s name is supposed to mean “musician”. However, it looks so butchered that I didn’t even recognized it as Japanese.

Let’s go with Setsuko Yoshiki or Kotone Wakana, instead.

Setsuko (節子) means “child of melody”. Miyuji’s a musician, so this alludes to that perfectly!

Kotone (琴音) means “sound of a harp”. Miyuji was once quiet and soft before her transformation. The harp is a soft instrument, so this name references to her previous nature nicely.

Yoshiki (佳樹) is the name of the leader of a Japanese heavy metal band, known as X Japan. After her transformation, Miyuji became a total rocker. I feel she would enjoy heavy metal, so why not give a shout out to a leader of a heavy metal band?

Wakana (和奏) is a combination of “wa” meaning “harmony” and “kana” meaning “play music”. This also alludes to Miyuji being a musician.

Kaga Kusha –> Hayate Ishiguro

Another name that was created via Google Translate. Just…really?

What about going with Hayate Ishiguro?

Hayate (颯) means “sudden, sound of wind”. Kaga is a very eccentric person, so I feel he’s very capricious and wild, just like the wind.

Ishiguro (石黒) is the surname of Hiroshi Ishiguro, the director of the Intelligent Robotics Laboratory. His team created an android known as Actroid.

Eliza: “Alright, alright that’s very good. Now don’t worry you’re going to survive this!”

She separated from her and the woman stood tall in the center of the room. Is everything going okay?

???: “I’m carried into the room!”

EN (Ensemble): “To the room, to the room, to the room!”

???: “Blood down my side.”

They let me in…”

I’ll never forget that night for the rest of my days.

I remember that suitor’s voice,

Pissed off because he’ll never win my praise.

She turned her back to him.

Philip: “But you’re like me,

I’m never satisfied.”

Philip: “I could help you be satisfied…”

She turned back around hesitantly and held out her hand.

WHOA, WHOA, WHOA, THERE! BACK THE FUCK UP A SECOND!

Philip: “Call me Philip Hamilton.

Where’s your family from?”

Titania: “Unimportant, there’s a million things I haven’t done.

But just you wait! Just you wait!”

They began to dance around each other with choreography. Is that…me?

Philip: “So, so, so!

So this is what it feels like to match wits,

With someone at your level!

What the hell is the catch?

There’s a feeling of freedom, of seeing the light!

It’s Ol’Franklin with a key and a kite,

You feel that right?

Our conversation could’ve last two minutes,

Maybe 3 minutes!

Not everything we said in total agreement-

It’s a dream!

Maybe it’s a trance,

It could be her posture; it could be her stance!

I’m a bit of a flirt, but she could give me chance!

We asked about her family, did you see her answer?

Her hands started fidgeting,

She looked askance!

She’s now penniless but she never knew how to dance!

Gorgeous, God she don’t know it!

Strong girl, she knows that she owns it!”

Titania: “I wanna take him far away from this place,

Then I turn and see that boy’s face and he is-“

Philip: “Helpless!”

Titania: “And I know he is!”

Philip: “Helpless!”

Titania: “And his eyes are just!”

Philip: “Helpless!”

Titania: “And I realize,

Three fundamental truths at the exact same time!”

They came together and linked arms.

Titania: “Where are you taking me?”

Philip: “I plan to change your life.”

Titania: I regret letting you lead the way…”

EN: “Number one!”

Titania: “I’m a girl in a world,

In which everyone thinks I should marry rich!

My Father had no son,

So I was the one, who was supposed to strive for one!

But I’m boldest, and the silliest,

And no one should love me, that’s ridiculous!

But Philip Hamilton is the wittiest!

Ha!

That sure don’t mean I want him any less…”

Philip: “Do you see the starlight? It reminds me of you!”

Titania: “Starlight?”

Philip: “My Starlight…”

EN: “Number two!”

Titania: “They’re still after me,

Because I have no sister and my parents died.

I’d have to be naïve to not step aside.

Maybe that is why,

I take comfort in Eliza, I can’t decide!

Nice going, Titania!

I was right, I will never be satisfied…

Thank you for showing me this…”

Philip: “If it takes a million years for you to see,

It would still be worth it.”

Titania: “I’ll hold you to it.”

EN: “Number three!”

Titania: “He knows me more than I know my own mind!

I will never find anyone as trusting or as kind!

If I tell him that I love him,

I’d be setting him behind,

He’d be mine!

He would say it’s fine!

I’d think he’s lying!

But when I fanaticize at night,

It’s into Philip’s eyes.

As I romanticize,

What would happen if I recite…

My love profusely…

All I want is to be called his wife!”

Philip: “…You’ll always have my eyes in your life…”

Titania: “They’d say…

To the groom!”

EN: “To the groom, to the groom, to the groom!”

Titania: “To the bride!”

EN: “To the bride, to the bride, to the bride!”

Titania: “It could be real as…

As long as I stay alive!

To our union!”

EN: “They let her in, they let her live!”

Titania: “And the hope that we provide!”

EN: “Stay alive, stay alive!”

Titania: “May we always be satisfied!”

EN: “Satisfied, satisfied…”

Titania: “And I know…

I’d be happy as his bride…

And I know….

I will truly be satisfied,

Can I help him be satisfied?”

             It took you a moment to notice the tears streaming down your face. That was you, or at least that version of you. Someone who was unsure, scared and self-sacrificing. It was almost surreal, seeing someone pretend to be you, be your voice, speak your thoughts and show your own story. It felt like being the author of a book that was turned into a movie. Washington On Your Side started up with Burr’s voice and you wondered what else was different. And then it happened again, in We Know. It seemed normal but there was another person there, the woman playing Titania. She was off to the side, still prominent in the scene but almost like she was hiding from the other four men on the stage. From time to time you could hear her voice faintly under the others’.

Alex: “Mister Vice President

Mister Madison

Senator Burr

What is this?”

Jefferson: “We have the check stubs, from separate accounts.”

Madison: “Almost a thousand dollars, paid in different amounts.”

Burr: “To a Mister James Reynolds way back in

Seventeen ninety-one.”

Alex: “Is that what you have, are you done?”

Madison: “You are uniquely situated by virtue of your position.”

Jefferson: “Though ‘virtue’ is not a word I’d apply to this situation.”

Madison: “To seek financial gain, to stray from your sacred mission.”

Jefferson “And the evidence suggests you’ve engaged in speculation!”

Burr: “An immigrant embezzling our government funds!”

Madison/Jefferson: “I can almost see the headline; your career is done.”

Burr: “I hope you saved some money for your daughter and sons!”

Madison/Jefferson: “Ya best g'wan run back where ya come from!”

Alex: “Ha! you don’t even know what you’re asking me to confess.”

Madison/Jefferson: “Confess!”

(Titania: “Say no to this…”)

Alex: “You have nothing; I don’t have to tell you anything at all

Unless…”

Madison/Jefferson: “Unless…”

(Titania: “Lord, show him how to

Say no to this…”)

Alex: “If I can prove that I never broke the law

Do you promise not to tell another soul what you saw?”

Burr: “No one else was in the room where it happened…”

(Titania: “Please, you need to

Say no to this!”)

Alex: “Is that a yes?”

Burr/Mads/Jeff: “Um, yes…”

Alex handed Burr a piece of paper.

Burr: “Dear Sir, I hope this letter finds you in good health

And in a prosperous enough position to put wealth

In the pockets of people like me, down on their luck

You see, that was my wife who you decided to-“

Titania: “Wait!”

Titania ran across the stage, grabbing Alex by the arm and the letter, pulling him away from the others.

Jefferson: “She courted him?

Escorted him to bed.”

Madison: “And when she had him in her corner,

That’s when Reynold’s extorted him.”

Burr: “For a sorted fee?

He paid him quarterly?”

Jefferson: “He may have continued his affair with that maid,

We’ll tell them in the papers.

The public will be set ablaze!”

The focus shifted from the three and to Titania and Alex.

Alex: “If they can see I kept a record of every check in my checkered history,

Check it again against their list n’ see consistency!

I never spent a cent that wasn’t mine,

They sent the dogs after my scent, that’s not fine!

Titania: “Yes, you have reasons for shame,

But you have not committed treason and sullied your good name!

If they can see you have done nothing to provoke legal action.

Maybe our answers will be to their satisfaction?”

Jefferson: “My God…

Gentlemen, let’s go.”

Burr/Mads/Jeff: “But do we really know

What we know?”

Alex: “How do I know they won’t use this against me

The next time we go toe to toe?”

Titania: “Alexander, rumors only grow.

And we both know what we know…”

             Oh my god, I changed history! I really did change history! It definitely wasn’t a dream! I’m not crazy! Next up was Hurricane, that was relatively the same. The only change you noticed was at the end.

Alex: “I’ll write my way out

Overwhelm them with honesty!

This is the eye of the hurricane; this is the only

Way I can protect our legacies!”

EN: “Wait for it, wait for it, wait for it, wait!”

Alex: “Titania’s Pamphlet…”

Oh no, not this again!

EN: “Titania’s Pamphlet!”

Jeff/Mads/Angelica: “Have you read this?”

Burr/Jeff/Mads:” Alexander Hamilton had a torrid affair

And he wrote it down right there!”

Madison: “Highlights!”

Alex/Jefferson: “The charge against me

Is a connection with one,                      

James Reynolds!  (James: “James Reynolds!”)

For purposes of

Improper speculation                          

My real crime is an   (Burr: “My real crime is an)

Amorous connection with his wife    (Amorous connection with his wife”)

For a considerable time

With his knowing consent!”

Mads/Burr/Jeff: “Damn!”

Alex/Jeff/Mads: “I had frequent meetings with her

yet some have looked into my own house!”

Burr: “Into his own house!”

Madison: “Into his own house!”

Deep voice: “Damn!”

Alex/Jefferson: “Titania had no part in this, in fact I’ve considered myself as her father.”

Madison/Burr: “No…”

EN: “Booooo!”

Madison/Burr: “Have you read this?”

Jefferson: “Well, he’s never gon’ be President now!”

Madison/Burr: “Never gon’ be President now!

Jefferson: “Well, he’s never gon’ be President now!”

Madison/Burr: “Never gon’ be President now!”

Jefferson: “He’s never gon’ be President now!”

Madison/Burr: “Never gon’ be President now!”

Jefferson: “That’s one less thing to worry about!”

Jeff/Mads/Burr: “That’s one less thing to worry about!”

Angelica/Philip: “I came as soon as I heard.”

Jefferson: “What?!”      

Alex: “Angelica…”    (Philip: “Titania…”)

EN: “All that way from London?!

Damn!”

Alex: “Angelica, thank God   (Philip: “Titania, oh God

Someone who understands   (I don’t know if I understand

What I’m struggling here to do (Please, tell me it’s not true…”)

Angelica: “I’m not here for you…”

EN: “Ooooh!”

Angelica: “I know my sister (Titania: “You know me more)

Like I know my own mind! (Than I know my own mind!)

You will never find (I will never find)

Anyone as trusting or as kind! (Anyone as trusting or as kind!)

I love my sister more than (I love you Philip more than)

I’m standing at her side (I’ve always been at your side!)

You could never be satisfied! (The public will never be satisfied!)

God, I hope you’re satisfied (God, I hope their satisfied!)

Jeff/Mads/Burr: “Well, he’s never gon’ be President now!

Well, he’s never gon’ be President now!

Well, he’s never gon’ be President now!

That’s one less thing to worry about.”

Jeff/Mads/Alex:              (EN:

“Hey!                                  (“Well he’s never gon’ )  

At least he was                  (be President now!)

.                             (That’s one less thing)

Full company:

“That’s one less thing to worry about!

The Titania’s Pamphlet

Jeff/Mads/Burr: Have you read this?

You ever see somebody ruin their own life?”

 

Full company (Except Alex and Eliza): “His poor wife…”

You were extremely overwhelmed. A lot was happening at once and it all felt so knew to you. It was the most perplexing thing. It didn’t feel like it was you anymore. It was just another person in history, someone who made your decisions. They felt like two separate things. I guess that’s how history goes; we can never know the full extent of it… unless we lived it ourselves. The next song was Burn and you couldn’t help but remember the actual incident with injury. That poor woman didn’t deserve what she got. There were only some small differences in that song.

Eliza: “They published a letter

Her husband wrote to you.

You told the whole world that you brought this girl into our bed!

In clearing your name, you almost ruined my life!”

You weren’t that surprised by the changes. After all, Titania’s Pamphlet was a lot vaguer than the original. A thought came to mind. What about Blow Us All Away?

Philip: “OooooOoooh!

I do, I do, I do, I do!

Hey!

OooohOoooh!

I do, I do, I do, I do, I do!

Girl, you got me

Helpless!

Look into your eyes and

The sky is them!

I’m Helpless!

Down for the count and I’m

Drowning in ‘em!

Yo, I have never been the type to try and grab the spotlight!

Even at revel, they’ll still tell us on a hot night!

Laughing with my sister as she’s dazzlin’ the room

But you’ll walk in, make my heart go

BOOM!”

Titania: “Try and catch your eye from the side of the ballroom!

Everyone’s dancing and the band’s top volume!

Grind to the rhythm as we wine and dine!”

Philip: “Grab my sister

She whispers

‘You’ll get her this time!’

                                  (All men:                

.                                    (“Oooh)

My sister made her way across

the room to you                (Oooh)

And I got nervous,

thinking “What’s she gonna do?”          (Oooh)

She grabbed you by the arm,

I’m thinkin’ ‘That’s new!’                     (Oooh)

Then you look back at me

and suddenly I’m Helpless!               (Helpless!)

Oh, look at those eyes                 (Look into your eyes)

Yeah, I’m                                           (Helpless!)

I’m so into you                                (Look into your eyes)

I am so into you                               (And the sky’s in them I’m helpless!)

 

I know I’m down for the count             (Down for the count)

And I’m drownin’ in ‘em.”                      (And I’m drownin’ in ‘em.”)

Titania: “Where are you taking me now?”

Philip: “Did you think I was done changing your life?”

Titania: “Then by all means, lead the way.”

Philip: “You can really see the sky out here…”

EN: “Just kiss her already!”

Titania: “Thank you…for being with me”

Philip: “I would spend a million years to prove myself, it would still be worth it.”

Titania: “You’re already worth it…”

Titania/all women: “One week later!”

Titania: “I’m writing a letter nightly

Now my life gets better every letter that you write me!

Laughing at his sister, cuz she knows I care for him!”

Female member of the EN: “I’m just saying if you really loved me, you would marry him!”

Titania: “Yes!”

Philip: “Two weeks later              (All men:

In the living room stressin’           (“Stressin’)

My father’s stone-faced

While I’m asking ‘what are my chances?’     ( Blessin’)

I’m dying inside, as

We wine

And dine

And I’m tryin’ not to cry

‘cause there’s nothing

that our minds can’t do               (Oooh)

My father makes his way across the room

To you

I panic for a second, thinking

“what’s he gonna do?”                          (Oooh)

But then he shakes your hand and says

“It’s true…”                            (Oooh)

And you turn back to me, smiling, and I’m

Helpless!                    (Helpless!)

Titania:

“Philip, I don’t have a dollar to my name

An acre of land, a group at my hand, a dollop of fame

All I have’s my honor, a tolerance for pain

A couple of callings coming and my top-notch brain

Insane, your family brings out a different side of me

Eliza confides in me, Alexander tried to take a bite of me

No stress, my love for you is never in doubt

We can get a place in Harlem and figure it out

I’ve been livin’ without a family for quite a while

My father tried, my mother died, I grew up with a fake smile

But I’ll never forget what my father taught me, that was real

And long as I’m alive, Philip, swear to God

You’ll never feel so…”

(Wedding march, but whistled)

En: “In New York, you can be a new man…

In New York, you can be a new man…

In New York, you can be a new man…”

Titania: “Helpless…”

Philip…Oh God… You couldn’t move, your mind was running a mile a minute. It was all hitting you at once. This was a simplified version of what you and Philip went through together. This was supposed to be a happy song, full of hope, full of love. But you knew, you knew what came next. The thing that kept you up at night. The whistling of the wedding march changed, you weren’t ready for this. You never could be.

Philip: “Meet the latest graduate of King’s College

I prob’ly shouldn’t brag, but, dag, I amaze and astonish

The scholars say I got the same virtuosity and brains as my pops

The ladies say my brain’s not where the resemblance stops

I’m only nineteen but my mind is older

Gotta be my own man, like my father, but bolder

I shoulder his legacy with pride, I used to hear him say

That someday I would-“

Full company: “Blow us all away!”

Philip: “Ladies, I’m lookin for a Mr. George Eacker

Made a speech last week, our Fourth of July speaker

He disparaged my father’s legacy in front of a crowd

I can’t have that, I’m making my father proud!”

Female EN member: I saw him just up Broadway a couple of blocks,

He was going to see a play.”

Philip: “Well I’ll go visit his box!”

2nd female EN member: “God you’re a fox!”

Philip: “And y’all look pretty good in ya’ frocks

But I got girl waiting for me back home and she rocks!” ( Both female EN members: “Aww, okay…”)

Full company: “Blow us all away!”

Philip: “George!” (Eacker: “Shh!”)

George!”

Eacker: “Shh! I’m tryin’a watch a show!”

Philip: “Ya shoulda watched your mouth before you talked about my father though!”

Eacker: “I didn’t say anything that wasn’t true

Your father’s a scoundrel, and so, it seems, are you.”

Full company: “Ooooooh!”

Philip: “It’s like that?”

Eacker: “Yeah, I don’t fool around, I’m not your little tool girlfriend.”

Philip: “Well, see you on the dueling ground

That is, unless you wanna step outside and go now?”

Eacker: “I know where to find you, piss off, I’m watchin’ this show now”

Philip: “Pops, if you had only heard the shit he said about you

I doubt you would have let it slide and I was not about to!”

Alex: “Slow down!”

Philip: “I came to ask you for advice, this is my very first duel

They don’t exactly cover this subject in boarding school!”

Alex: “Did your friends attempt to negotiate a peace?”

Philip: “He refused to apologize, we had to let the peace talks cease.”

Alex: “Where is this happening?”

Philip: “Across the river, in Jersey…”

Philip/Alex: “Everything is legal in New Jersey!”

You didn’t notice it until just then, but the woman playing Titania looked like she was listening in from off to the side.

Alex: “Alright, so this is what you’re gonna do (Titania: “Never be satisfied…”)

Stand there like a man until Eacker is in front of you.                    .  

When the time comes, fire your weapon in the air (Helpless….”)

This will put an end to the whole affair!”

(Titania: “Please, say no to this…”)

Philip: “But what if he decides to shoot? Then I’m a goner…”

Alex: “No, he’ll follow suit if he’s truly a man of honor

To take someone’s life, that is something you can’t shake

Philip, your mother can’t take another heartbreak…”

(Titania: “Please don’t leave me, I am helpless…”)

Philip: “Father!”

Alex: “Promise me

You don’t want this young man’s blood on your conscience!

Philip: “Okay, I promise…”

Alex: “Come back home when you’re done.

Take my guns, be smart, make me proud, son “

You were expecting the normal switch between the normal melody and Philip’s rap, but that didn’t happen. Instead it slowed down a bit.

Titania: “Look around, look around

At how lucky we are to be alive right now…

Look around, look around!”

Philip turned to find her there, he didn’t seem happy.

Philip: “You weren’t supposed to know…”

Titania: “I should have known…”

Philip: “Titania, you know me!”

Titania: “You’re fighting for something that happened over a month ago!”

Philip: “No!”

Titania: “I must survive until this war is done

But I deserve a chance

To see the Sun!

Look around, Look around

At how lucky we are to be alive right now!

I don’t need a legacy, (Philip: “He will throw away his shot)

I don’t need money! (History has its eyes on me)

I just need you by my side, (Look into your eyes)

I let you inside my heart! (And the sky’s in them)

Oh! Let me be a part of the narrative (Will be ever be satisfied?)

In the story they will write someday! (I can’t say no to this!”)

Let this moment be the first chapter

Where you decide to stay!”

Philip and Titania separated from each other.

Philip: “My name is Philip

I am a poet (Titania: “Am I not enough?)

And I’m a little nervous, but I can’t show it

I’m sorry, I’m a Hamilton with pride

You talk about my father; I cannot let it slide!                   .

Mister Eacker, how was the rest of your show?

Eacker: “I’d rather skip the pleasantries, let’s go

Grab your pistol! (Could this be enough?)

Philip: “Confer with your men!”                                            

Eacker: “The duel will commence after we count to ten.”              .

Full company: “Count to ten!”

Philip: “Look ‘em in the eye, aim no higher (This must be enough!)

Summon all the courage you require

Then slowly and clearly aim your gun towards the sky…                .

Full Company: “1, 2, 3, 4, 5-“

Titania ran towards Philip

Full company: “6, 7-“ (Wait!”)

(Gunshots)

Fuck…

Mr. and Mrs. Bennett-Salvatore ❤️

Look at his unmoving right arm. He’s not letting her slip away…. and that confident face he has with her. And she looks so unbothered, right? I feel like he’d hyphenate so she could keep the Bennett name strong! He’d want to respect her lineage and a part of her would love to take his last name, because she loves him. So they’d hyphenate. You know for their children, and they’ll be a happy, human family🙏🏽

OUAT 6x15 Mini-Review: A Wondrous …ly Slow Pace

It took me a while to get through this episode because I was playing with the babies, petting the cat, looking over my tax returns … Here’s a one-gif recap:

Originally posted by growsbetweenthepines

  1. Jafar wasn’t a threat so much as a Mean Girl. “God, Jasmine, you’re such a loser. Why don’t you be a loser with the rest of your loser friends, loser.” And he ran around giving people Inappropriate Woodies and then Jasmine bested him with some 99 cent glitter, the end. That was the episode, right?
  2. Is one of the show’s cost-cutting measures losing character motivations? What was Jafar’s deal, anyway? He wanted to rule Agrabah but Aladdin and Jasmine stopped him and then he was mad people called him names? So he was going to hurt Aladdin but gave him the shears instead, and now he blackmailed Jasmine into giving him a magical diamond so he could shrink the entire city out of revenge? For name-calling? Couldn’t he curl up with a copy of How to Win Friends and Influence People and get over it? (That said I would totally let him put his magical staff in my cave of wonders, if you know what I mean. *wink*)
  3. If this episode was a test run for how S7 would fare without Rumbelle and with minimal Snowing and Emma … yikes. Every scene needs an actor who is an anchor– an actor so good they can convince you that the rest of the ridiculousness happening on-screen is real. Regina is one of those; Rumple and Cora are others. Hook can’t quite manage it. Jafar tried his best but they gave him a turban and some Dollar Tree accessories and told him to wing it. The episode gave him NOTHING to work with.
  4. Jasmine is mad that the shop owner took Ariel’s necklace … but he did that because Ariel stole from him. Ariel is the one in breach of etiquette here, not the shop owner who needs to sell things to eat. Likewise, Nemo and his crew wander off in below-zero temps to try and fish the Nautilus from the bottom of a frozen-over lake and no-one thinks to offer them some hot cocoa or something? If Liam 2.0 wasn’t going to be a plot point why was he there? And how can Ariel and Eric survive in a tiny shack with no central heating? No wonder Eric’s on a cruise.
  5. Is the price for Hook coming back from the dead mild hearing loss? BECAUSE THE SHOUTING HAS TO STOP! WE CAN HEAR YOU NOW, HOOK! Hilariously the only person who can get Hook to talk in a normal register is … Belle. Maybe he has to lower his voice because she’s so short.
  6. This episode features a Teachable Moment in tone. When Aladdin is interrupting Hook to ask if Jasmine loves him or just likes him, it’s supposed to be humorous– that’s how Aladdin plays it. But Hook plays it like he’s going to stab Aladdin in the neck because he needs to CONCENTRATE on the ridiculous plot. Hook wants to get back to Emma, sure, but he needs to throttle back the intensity for some light banter or the scene doesn’t work. The director should have fixed this.
  7. When Regina was mourning Robin’s death, Henry brought her a gift basket of chocolate, wine, and movies. When Hook disappeared, Henry spent the entire episode listening to tunes on the couch. Guess he doesn’t ship CS :-P. (Having Hook try to win over a moody, hostile teenage Henry would be a hilarious sit-com I would totally watch.)
  8. And speaking of which, Emma cried two itty-bitty teeny-weeny incy-wincy tears over Hook being gone forever. Girl, I’ve cried more over the loss of limited edition ice cream! And she says she needed that to “move on” and moved all his shit out? Didn’t Hook leave YESTERDAY? ♫ Now you’re just somebody that I USED TO KNOOOOW ♫
  9. Regina, Emotionally Supportive “It’s Complicated” is something I never knew I needed. Although I’m not sure she should be giving advice, you know? “Emma, how are you feeling?” “Sad.” “No, I mean, how do feelings work? I can’t snap my minion’s necks anymore when I’m upset and I’m at a bit of a loss.”
  10. Drunk!Snow throwing knives with Vikings is everything. EVERYTHING. Can we keep her for the rest of the season? The series? Why can’t this have been the entire episode?
  11. Charming took the news that Hook killed his father pretty well. Suspiciously well for someone who tried to shank senior citizen King George for that last episode– I think screaming: “I can never forgive you!” was involved. I guess this is a “next episode” kind of thing?
  12. This episode wrote-off three hot POC guys (Jafar, Nemo, and Aesop). When they said Snow White was a big part of the show they were talking about the character, right? 
  13. Gideon Gold is a graduate of the James Bond Villain school of Extra-ness: he probably stalked the real Aesop, read up on being a mixologist, practiced making cocktails, disguised himself as a marketer and told Aesop to print up 2 for 1 flyers to increase sales by 20%, and personally *poofed* to Regina’s house to deliver the coupon. Why couldn’t he just have asked Emma for help– Villain Union Rules? P.S If he wanted to make Emma cry, all he needed was do was show her this season’s ratings. (Too mean?)

In short: This episode gets an A for Aesop Effort but an F for Failing to Keep My Interest. Here’s hoping next episode is a bit more compelling. I want a S7, dammit!

There was a booklet about djinn equips bundled with an issue that was released near the end of the Magnostadt arc (August 2013). Here are the highlights of it and my two cents:

-Alibaba in djinn equip mode is dressed in white while as Hakuryuu is covered in black dragon scales and Sinbad in black feathers. Ohtaka chose those colors on purpose, probably to represent their alignment.

-Zagan djinn equip is a combination of a peafowl and a dragon (the dragon in Hakuryuu’s name). Ohtaka also comments that Hakuryuu in djinn equip mode becomes Kokuryuu (黒龍=black dragon) rather than Hakuryuu (白龍=white dragon)

-Ohtaka drew Zepar djinn equip while she was sleepy and struggling to meet her deadline. The idea that Zepar’s scream puts everyone to sleep seems to be inspired by that.

-Kouen’s djinn equip was originally a combination of a dragon and a skeleton, not snakes. That sounds kind of like Belial djinn equip, isn’t it? Maybe Belial was originally Kouen’s djinn and it had different abilities?

-Ohtaka made sure that the djinn equips of Alibaba, Sinbad and Kouen are of different colors because she wanted to draw them next to each other in color someday. Now that we are nearing the ending, will we ever see that?

-Originally, Kouha’s djinn equip would turn him into a girl and Ohtaka wanted to use that as a gag, but she ended up scrapping the idea.

-Ohtaka thinks Koumei’s ability to move and transfer objects is the most useful ability and she wants to have it herself.

-Kougyoku was originally meant to die after introducing her djinn equip. IIRC Mogamett was originally a minor charcater and Kougyoku had a big role in the battle against the medium. Maybe the Magnodtadt arc had a different plot and ending at that stage?

-Djinn equips are meant to show a lot of skin because they were based on Buddhist statues.

-Now here’s the revelation that made me quite salty: up to near the end of the Magnostadt arc, Ohtaka thought about giving Alibaba a second or even a third djinn. Did Ohtaka change her mind or is she planning to make Ugo Alibaba’s djinn after Aladdin saves him from David? Would another djinn for him serve a purpose at this point?

Morgan Rielly - Part Five

I’m so excited for the next part in a few days! Hope you all like it so far. 

I scramble into the car without another thought. The interior is sleek, everything a faceless black from the steering wheel to the floor mats. I eye everything warily until Morgan catches my eye, a smirk meeting me as I look at him.

               “Nice car, huh?” He asks and I roll my eyes. “No? You can walk then…”
