DIY: the CURSE A BITCH edition

So yeah, follow up to this post.

You’ll need:
• polymer clay
• nails
• paints and brushes
• a jar
• a taglock
• salt
• black pepper
• tabasco
• vinegar (the clear kind you use for cleaning)
• dirt
• gutter water
• candles

First I salted all my windowsills and my doorstep with salt to make protect my house. To make sure the bitch wouldn’t be able to counteract, I created a home guardian who acts as a “bouncer” of sort.

Then I made a small poppet out of clay. I tried to make it look as much like the bitch as I could at that scale. Then I drove nails into her, telling her each time why she was being stabbed. “This one is for when you made fun of coworker S”, “this one is for when you bullied coworker B”, “this one is for when you took pictures of me”, etc… I finished by driving a nail in her mouth “that’s to teach you to stop spreading gossips and lies”

I made her look anguished and in pain because that’s why I want for her. Then I baked the poppet, leaving the nails in. I roughly painted it afterward.

Once it was dried, I glued her inside the jar. My taglock this time was a note she wrote me. Her name was even on it, so that was good. I put it inside the jar and lit it up. Watching the flames lick her frame was cathartic.

Once it was done burning, I covered the ashes with salt to ward off her influence and irritate her. Then I ground some black pepper and poured it along some tabasco on her, to burn her. Then I went outside and scraped some dust and hair and dead bugs from the ground and poured it on her, so her reputation gets as dirty as she tried to make mine.

Ew, gross.

I added nails to the mixture so that every time I shake the jar, she’s hit by the weight of what she’s done.

Then I filled it to two third with vinegar. At first I wanted to use the cooking kind, but in the end, the cleaning kind made more sense. I mean, she’s a huge disgusting stain on the surface of earth, so… I topped it off with some gutter water because that’s where she belong, and spat in it three times, thinking about all the crap she had done to me and the others.

Once I was done, I just sealed it with wax and placed it in a dark place where it never sees the light of day.

I poured some salt and pepper on top of it, hence the grains. The color is a lot grosser irl, haha.

Anyway, there you go: how to curse a bitch.

Brisco County Jr. (The Adventures of Brisco County Jr.) - I didn’t want any duplicate actors and I already had Ash on the list. But let’s be honest, I could do this entire list with just Bruce characters.

Chloe decides to take William’s advice and tries to get all the babes, discovering the wonders of ass along the way, but struggles with her inner bro. Meanwhile, Max is tired of playing wingman and her lack of tits and goes on a secret mission. (Part 1, Part 2 | YouTube)

“Malachi scowled. "I don’t remember the Clave inviting you into the Glass City, Magnus Bane.”
“They didn’t,” Magnus said. “Your wards are down.”
“Really?” the Consul’s voice dripped sarcasm. “I hadn’t noticed.”
Magnus looked concerned. “That’s terrible. Someone should have told you.” He glanced at Luke. “Tell him the wards are down.”

How to avoid being cursed on tumblr.com

Recently, the witchcraft community has been much more negative than what it used to be. With negativity comes aggresion, and with witches, curses tend to get flinged around. I’m here to teach you how to dodge curses like the crafty little witch you are!

First of all,

Respect other people’s practices. Don’t judge someone for not following the three fold law, or whatever other belief you have and they don’t share. Do not appropriate anything, that includes anything from indigenous cultures, closed practices, and especially not from ethnic practices (voodoo, santeria, etc…).

Second of all,

Be nice! If someone asks you something, don’t be an elitist little brat. Dont’ be haughty, no one likes that. If an argument does explode, either stay out of it, or be respectful, be the bigger person.

Third of all,

Be hella prepared. Always tend to your wards, set up new ones once in a while, and do not ever share the wards you use with others. Keep your protections secret, it’ll be safer that way. Here are a couple of lists of wards for your reading pleasure!

Be careful witchlings!

One of the big themes of the Digital Ash record is the fear of death and how it infects every part of my life. It’s not even so much fear, as it is sorrow that you have to say goodbye to this stuff. I think that you can use that knowledge to defeat yourself or to push yourself forward and keep yourself going. The fact that there is—and here’s M. Ward again on his new album, “What are you gonna do? Where you gonna go when you don’t got space to fill? What are you gonna do with your time, now that you don’t got time to kill?” That’s it. You better fucking make a move while you got a chance. Because it’s not going to wait around for you to get comfortable with the idea of your mortality. You better just bust out the machete and start chopping through this shit and heading in some direction.

A little jar to, hopefully, keep these next couple months from descending to complete shit.
Chaos Keep-Away Jar
Ingredients:
Pebbles (a filter)
Chili powder (a burn, a boost)
Salt (cleansing)
Epsom salt (a salt that personally connects more to cleanliness and health than table salt)
Rubbed sage (cleansing)
Lavender (cleansing, warding)
Ashes (from incense burnt while cleansing my space)
Black pepper (a burn, a boost, but mostly an annoyance)
Sugar (to attract negativity like flies)
Pins (to hold it in)
Citrine (luck)
And two charms shaped like people, one for me and one for my fiancée
Method:
I layered pebbles with the spices/salts. You can’t see the layers well but it’s one layer of pebbles at the bottom, then spices, pebbles, and spices. On top is a layer of sugar. Then I alternated citrine with pins. On the very top is the charms and then everything is sprayed with a lavender spray.
For the charms, I had each of us hold one until it was warm. I had my fiancée tell hers that it was a part of her, but that this was a part meant to remain away. It was separate, a trap (she’s not a witch). I did the same but in a witchy way. These are going to act as vinegar and oil, a trap for fruit flies and nuisances. Anything that wants into our lives will be filtered through this and hopefully it will keep any more bullshit from infecting my day-to-day.
I’m leaving this in the very center of the apartment.

Those tags about the bubble bath and the #because there's a ring of FUCKING MOUNTAIN ASH AROUND THE ENTIRE APARTMENT SO NO ONE CAN EVER TOUCH STILES AGAIN are so on point. Him and Derek. Cuddling. Together. Safely inside a building ringed with mountain ash and protected by wards while they care for each other and make each other feel better. Yes. This is something I require.

I feel very strongly about this and it needs to be a thing. 

Just a little safe haven for when Derek declares Stiles off duty and confiscates his phone, so they can hole up in his other apartment that none of the pack knows the exact location of but that he has pretty much specifically for this reason. The mountain ash is as much to keep Scott and Liam from barging in as it is to keep all the other things out. 

Obviously they aren’t there often, because they don’t ditch their friends like that, but when it gets really bad–when Derek finds Stiles in his overturned jeep which is on fire and has to drag him to safety–Derek texts the Sheriff and Scott, lets them know Stiles is okay, and then turns off Stiles’ phone for the next few days. If it’s a real emergency, they can call his phone. He is the gatekeeper to Stiles, and he’s a total hardass.

And then it’s just three days of taking care of each other, quiet confessions and reassurances, eating right, and sleeping as much as possible in each other’s arms before they go right back out there and punch Theo right in his stupid smug Bieber face.
