and im starting a new thing

new genre concept: soft apocalypse

the world as we know it has ended and mother nature starts taking back what’s hers. there are no zombies or cannibals or murderous bandits. the most valued members of the community are those who know how to garden and farm, sew and weave, treat wounds, work wood or build with bricks, cook from scratch. 

people bond together to begin rebuilding instead of killing each other. everyone teaches each other whatever they do know and works together to figure out the stuff none of them know. books become incredibly valued resources because they’re often the only way to learn critical information. if someone is elderly, disabled, or otherwise unable to work at the same level as most of the community, they’re taken care of by the others, not told any sort of “survival of the fittest” bs.

as the generations ware on, communities begin expanding into small cities. some of the settlements even find ways to repurpose solar or wind power on a small scale and have electricity in some of their buildings. storytellers wander the countryside telling tales of the old world in return for some hot stew or a place to rest for the night, and the mythos of the new world start to incorporate elements of the past. the only thing that remains constant is that humans survive, and they do it by working together.

humans more like ew-mans am i right

instead of wheel of the year im using wheel of witchblr discourse that makes the rounds every few months to tell time and figure out when to plant and harvest my crops.

my new sabbat list includes:

  • someone doesnt understand the 3fold law is only a wiccan thing and starts curse-shaming non-wiccans for cursing
  • the “blessed be” debacle happens again, creepy invasiveness be damned
  • people conflating wicca with witchcraft / gatekeeping other people’s crafts
  • cultural appropriation in droves so we have to bring out the afterschool special ^tm posts (special addition, appropriating person says “i was that race, but like,,in a past life”)
  • someone wants to shame people who like aesthetics, calls them “fluffy bunnies”
  • TEH BURNING TYMES WERE REAL AYE TELL YEA AND I SAW GOODY PROCTOR WITH TEH DEVIL
  • “witchcraft is only for cis womyn uwu✿ ” bullshit, sometimes even brought back by terfs that dont even practice witchcraft ??¿?
  • someone has a problem with other people using emoji spells, despite no one forcing this rando to use emoji spells. 
  • “love spells are basically rape” discourse happens about the same as a blue moon

this shit happens like clockwork man im telling ya

Harry’s Journal

April 28

Took this picture of Draco the other morning. His bedhead is somehow both absolutely adorable and incredibly sexy, so how could I resist? Clearly he wasn’t too happy with me for taking it, but I made it up to him with kisses and a big breakfast with all his favorites. Let’s just hope he doesn’t find this journal, I don’t think he would be too happy about that.

“Hey, vampires! Was all that human blood you drank today tasty? Sure hope so…because that was your last supper.”

once again, it’s me. i know i’ve been really problematic and on & off lately but i’m not 100% happy with this blog so i’ve deleted a ton of posts (all except some asks and original content and i think i want to change my tag system) but this is just a tiny (which will end up being very un-tiny) list of things i’m still learning.

  1. Wear the best shoes you can, because those shoes will take you to great places. (via shizuka todo from hana yori dango)
  2. you are owed nothing for your friendship
  3. memories are only as important as you make them
  4. the biggest decisions are often made at the worst times
  5. buy waterproof mascara because when your eyes glisten with tears, there is always one person who thinks your eyelashes have seen the universe
  6. medicine is something to never be ashamed of
  7. when it is dark and the whole world is silent, you are a god and unstoppable for the blood pounding in your veins is the loudest thing you can hear
  8. find someone you love who you think about at 2pm crossing a busy road, not a 2am when you’re all alone.
  9. sometimes people use you. it’s their loss.
  10. destroying is not bad. for destroying is simply a form of creating. it is the raw, unadulterated, powerful form of your thoughts.
  11. those empty notebooks you have can contain anything as long as you open them up.
  12. it is alright to cry everyday
  13. just like it is alright to not cry for months
  14. listen to the world and to silence for it is a tremendous feat to turn nothing into music. listen to the noises of the cosmos as we keep spinning and spinning and know it is the same sounds that the gods heard.
  15. you will probably never do work when you are meant to - but you should
  16. yes they could be the greatest thing that can ever happen to you. yes they can fill your sky with stars. yes they can capture all the world’s butterflies just to put in your stomach but it doesn’t mean they should. find someone who isn’t only there when it is dark.
  17. know when fruits and vegetables are in season
  18. the greatest feeling is closing 10+ tabs that you had for a project or ticking 10+ things off a list but never compromise on something you only half completed.
  19. it is better to walk with an empty bag knowing you have done work than to walk with a heavy bag and worries of all the work you have to do.
  20. there is never enough time
  21. you make mistakes and that’s alright
  22. stick to your morals because they will be the only thing that is always there. they are the discomfort when you are pressured into something else and they are the pride when you stand up for what you believe in.
  23. it is not cool to lie to yourself
  24. sometimes investments don’t work out. whether it’s money, time or love. 
  25. never measure the strength of a friendship by how long you’ve known each other.
  26. it is never not your choice.
  27. when the fingertips of dawn touch your bedroom window and mist covers everything like a blanket, the silence before the sun rises is when you hear the cries and songs of angels and all things thought to be legends.
  28. you are worth it. and most importantly
  29. you can do it.

justinmeldaljohnsen: A nice pic of these two folks that I’m glad to have gone through some great journeys with. A few words about Taylor, while I’m here: He’s one of the most naturally gifted musicians and producers I’ve ever encountered. His vision for this new @paramore album was clear, from start to finish. His skill, knowledge, and taste led the way. Working by his side, and seeing all these attributes grow and flourish, was very inspiring for me. Expect many more great things from him in the future! Thanks for reading, sorry for the glut of pics, I’m feeling a bit nostalgic.

the best part about andrew and neil’s first kiss isn’t even the kiss itself but what happens before. like neil having that scary conversation w/ wymack about becoming vice captain and he feels so scared and lost because he Wasn’t Supposed To Be This and the first thing he does is call andrew. he seeks comfort and assurance in andrew without even realizing it. then afterwards them buying the new car and andrew giving neil the key and just those moments where neil is starting to clue in that andrew means more to him than just an anchor keep him grounded. he realizes andrew means something very real to him which is a big reason why when the kiss happens, neil isn’t that shocked by it. even if he didnt realize it, thats what he felt was Really Right. im a mess.
