and all that razzle dazzle

How to do a sigil

Yes hello I am a Alex and this is a thing of how I do a witchcraft. If you do this a certain way feel free to not listen. If you don’t like the way I do it lit, donut do it this way :3 that is all

What is a sigil?

“an inscribed or painted symbol considered to have magical power.” -google
aka a digital or physical painting/drawing/craving/or anything with a design that is given a certain meaning by the person who made it.

What are sigils used for?

The maker draws a doodle (more or less) and charges it with their intent. 

Can anybody make one?

Anyone :3

How complicated does it have to be/look like?

It shouldn’t be that hard or pretty, as long as it pleases you it is fine

What materials do you gotta use?

Whatever you got. digital or physical. Paper and pencil/pen/blood/wax/anything - Wood drawing things/knife to carve
Literally a n y t h i n g

Do sigils have to be aesthetically pleasing?

Nope :3 just has to have meaning it you/someone you’re making it for

Do you have to be a witch to use sigils?

No you don’t. It’s up to you and your beliefs 

Where can you put sigils?

*cracks knuckles* Shoes, binders, behind phone cases, under tables, under chairs, on your nails with sharpies then put nail polish over it, in your car, in a pillow, draw them on yourself (thighs, stomachs, arms, whatever), clothes tags, out of ketchup on your food, literally anything and everything you can think of

Can I cut out a sigil for a keychain or somethin?

Yes, and you can put them on your alter, hang em in a car, etc 

Can you use sigils in spells?

Yes you can, just like tarot cards and oracle cards

Can you have two different sigils for the same thing?

Yes you can (ex.  if you have one for happiness, but want to make another one for happiness, you can draw a different design) (ex. 2- if you see someone make one to ward off depression and want to make one for the same reason, you can make one but with a different design)

How do you “activate” a sigil?

As soon as you draw it, it’s activated. However if you want to give it a little umph, you can bury them, burn them, submerge it in water, etc. If burning you can wafe (is that even a word) an object through the smoke to charge it with your intent

Are sigils used for cursing/hexing too?

Sure can be, up to you and your beliefs/craft

What all can you use sigils for?

Everything. happiness, good luck, help to study, anti*illness*, help your plants grow, help your phone battery last longer, help Kendall to not be a bitch, the list is endless

And finally, how do you a sigil?

  1. Understand what you want the sigil for, I would suggest a simple one at first so I’m going to explain how to do it for happiness
  2. Gather your resources, again I’m doing a easy one so I am going to “use” a pencil and paper
  3. Get in the mindset of the intent you are going for, so this one is happy. Maybe do some stretching before and clear your mind
  4. Now that you’re all razzle dazzled in a happy mood, close you eyes and thing, what shape in happiness to you right in that moment. Do you thing it’s a bunch of lines or even as simple as a heart? Thing about it
  5. Now if you have trouble with step 4 (like I do, ADHD is a lil bitch) play some music that makes you happy or a movie. Does Frozen make you happy? Maybe draw a lil snowflake
  6. Now as fun as it is to draw an elaborate sigil, remember, this can go into your Grimoire or BoS for you to copy onto other things 

The most important thing now,

Magic requires consent

Please don’t put “Make Justin love me”

Instead you can put “Attract someone who would love me that has the same traits as Justin”


Stay safe beans and happy sigiling!

(is that a word)

even more trojans hcs!! because i love them!!

  • laila put fairy lights in the locker rooms
  • jeremy gets jean into playing pokemon sun, and jean picks rowlet as his starter.  it reminds him of jeremy - short and round and adorable
  • once, alvarez tried to ride on the back of laila’s bicycle from their dorm to the court for practice. they hit a pothole, and laila had to get a new bike
  • a picture of the broken bike is the very first thing jean ever posts on social media, and his post is immediately followed by a video via laila of jean laughing nonstop at the whole scene
  • when they have down time at airports, they’ll play things like red rover, red rover, or freeze tag.  they don’t talk about the time a freshman striker sprained his ankle in a game of red rover during a flight delay, except that they do, constantly
  • they’re also constantly all yelling out “the floor is lava!” it happens during practice, when they’re changing for games, in the cafeteria at school.  jean is arguably one of the Best at immediately finding a place to stand off the floor
  • alvarez has the wall next to her bed completely covered in photos and artwork and magazine clippings of things she likes. there’s a polaroid picture of her and laila on one of their first dates tacked up between a photo of jean giving jeremy a piggyback ride through LAX and a newspaper article about butterflies
  • laila has, on several occasions, been so tired she didn’t even realize she walked out of the dorm wearing shoes from two completely different pairs

  • laila has such bad vision.  she can’t function without glasses or contacts
  • alvarez and jean very frequently go to get milkshakes in the middle of the night.  jean always gets peanut butter while alvarez is steadily working through every flavor milkshake on the menu.  her personal favorite is strawberry shortcake
  • they have team movie nights every other weekend.  freshmen bring pillows and blankets, sophomores bring drinks, juniors supply the snacks, and the seniors/fifth year students host it in one of their rooms.  they have to spend the full two weeks before each movie night to agree on what they’re going to watch
  • horror movies are banned after the time jeremy got scared, jumped, accidentally elbowed a junior goalkeeper, and knocked her tooth out
  • after jeremy gets him to watch chicago, jean listens to nothing but razzle dazzle for a solid week. they all still sometimes catch him humming it while he does homework
  • there are very few things alvarez loves more than s’mores
  • laila is an amazing artist and everyone on the team has art she’s made hanging in their rooms somewhere.  they’re all very personalized, and when jean joins the team, she just paints him the sun
  • it’s his most prized possession
  • i could literally write novels about them i love them

missmarthanightingale  asked:

so, for frozentravel, obi-wan is now totally gonna challenge someone to a sparring match (mac! mace! mace!) and kick their ass using soresu, to the shock, awe and sincere admiration of everyone witnessing it. right?

‘I won’t listen to the gasp of Qui-Gon’s last breath again, I won’t listen to the sounds of dying troopers, I will not listen to the sounds of Anakin’s hate.’ Obi-Wan first steps into the sparring hall was unnoticed among the Force beings, his aura almost the same as theirs for once.

‘I will not listen to the screams of phantoms.’ Obi-Wan took a free mat with a deep breath, pretending not to notice the still on both sides of him suddenly as he lined up the first kata of stormwalker.

Moving smoothly, he settled himself through each kata with the speed gained by years of exercise, letting muscle memory once again guide him through each as he let himself slip into moving meditation, his mind emptying for each turn and each shift.

War had made him forget so much.

Exhaustion had laced his very bones.

Depression had chased him into the dark.

Had made him numb and almost broken each time he had looked into the mirror alone with the masks going up every time the public saw him.

‘Jedi master, Jedi master, Jedi master.’ The light Force chanted into his ears, as eager as Obi-Wan to see the future change.

‘Peace keepers, upholders of justice, the hands of the weak when the strong take advantage.’

His feet were barely brushing the floor, each move a fluid motion just to bring him to the next, to remind him where he was and who he was.

The Dark side had come for his crown, had come for his throne and his kingdom.

It had taken his kingdom, his throne but Obi-Wan retained his crown despite his friends and his home falling.

He was still Obi-Wan.

That single point of truth remained even as the Dark tried to chase him.

‘No. Never again.’ Obi-Wan finished the last kata of the stormwalker, balanced and sure as a single bead of sweat rolled down his temple.

‘Then its time to act isn’t it, its time to be sly as a fox and slyer then the Sith for sure. Its time to razzle dazzle them all…’ He breathed out and let his position untense, rolling his shoulders slowly as the heat of his exercise filled his body.

“Master Kenobi. I wasn’t aware you were here.” He looked up at the voice and nodded in greeting, hair sticking to his temple and neck because of the sweat.

“Master Windu. I just wanted to get some exercise.” Obi-Wan offered truthfully. “Some katas and perhaps sparring if someone would be willing to indulge me.” He shrugged easily.

Eyes flashing in surprise, the Korun slowly walked over to him, Depa by his side. “Sparring? Truly?”

“Yes, its been far to long since I had a proper sparring session and I felt it was about time.” Obi-Wan offered calmly, his shields not high and tight but soft and mellow, letting Mace reach out through the Force and brush against him in judgment.

Whatever Mace found made him smile before nodding. “Then if Depa doesn’t mind, perhaps I can spar with you?”

Practically bouncing on her feet, Depa looked between the two, eyes wide. “I don’t mind!”

Cocking his head, Obi-Wan smiled slowly. “Why not, it could be a demonstration then.”

The thing about Soresu is that when engaged with blasters, you defend and end the battle rather quickly. However when you engage with someone able to use a saber, you TIRE them the fuck down.

And with that Obi-Wan buckled down and became the bastion in the storm that was the vapaad.

Yet he stood against it until he could land his saber at Mace chest with a small smile on his face and sweat drenching his tunics.

“…Solah.” Mace offered, voice rasping out as he stared at Obi-Wan. “Solah Master Kenobi.”

Chuckling breathlessly, Obi-Wan deactivated his saber and bowed for the other man. “A great sparring session Master Windu.” He murmured as the Korun bowed back.

Laughing faintly, Mace nodded as he wiped sweat of his face and scalp. “Yes, a great sparring session, we should do it again.”

“I’d like that.” Obi-Wan returned.

Razzle Dazzle “Easter Egg” Navy Ships - all week here at NHF in honor of #easter:

#5: Mackay “Disruptive Coloration” or “Low Visibility-Dazzle” System

It was intended to cause confusion in determining a ship’s heading, reduce its visibility at a distance and in varying light conditions and soften its outlines to make optical rangefinding more difficult.

THoughts on Beta Ray Bill?

I loooove Beta Ray Bill and I think he’s woefully underrepresented in more recent Thor. He’s really only played guest spot roles for a few issues or events here and there for ages (and that Journey into Mystery run).

I’m a big fan of Walt Simonson’s Thor so I’m pre-conditioned to loving Bill for being the one who kickstarted that whole run. He represents a deep and interesting storyline mixed with all the razzle dazzle god-sized fun that Simonson was. That guy could tell an engaging story and never kill the Magic. That’s the feeling in Thor comics that I love the most, and a lot of characters that came out of that period I am really attached to (Bill, Lorelei, Malekith!). Not many other writers can capture that balance the same way he did. Anyway yeah I love Bill and his whole story and his relationship with Sif! Plus he LOOKS so damn cool.
