born to do it

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?’ Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.

إِذَا قِيلَ لَهُمُ اتَّبِعُوا مَا أَنزَلَ اللَّهُ قَالُوا بَلْ نَتَّبِعُ مَا أَلْفَيْنَا عَلَيْهِ آبَاءَنَا ۗ أَوَلَوْ كَانَ آبَاؤُهُمْ لَا يَعْقِلُونَ شَيْئًا وَلَا يَهْتَدُونَ

And when it is said to them, “Follow what Allah has revealed,” they say, “Rather, we will follow that which we found our fathers doing.” Even though their fathers understood nothing, nor were they guided?

some days i consider yanking sebastian out of london, making him american, changing his entire backstory so he grew up in the south or midwest, using western aesthetics, and making him a modern day gunslinger or something, but nope, can’t do that

apart from me is space.
apart from me is a hatch in which leads to space.
it is odd to have to go down to get to space.

I Promise You I Promise You I Promise You

in my efforts to mail letters i have discovered my handwriting is awful.
what am i to do about this?
apart from me is space.

born left-handed and corrected to be right-handed

high noon and the duel begins, high noon and that duel
both guns pointed at guns and teeth

Do you know the reason they think about me in such a way
it is cause i am a witch
they burned me once near a lake, but they will not burn me again
Do you know the lord and savior loves you, his name is
they drowned me once near where they burned me
there is a piano at the bottom of the lake
someone is playing Rachmaninoff.

swam to the piano player
did not get there in time.

the third time they said I Promise You I Promise You I Promise You

Hi Donnie it's Nicole again! So i wondering what do you Think if April was born with purple eyes that actually matches your mask? What do you think and how would you feel about that it April was born with purple eyes?

I think April would be just as beautiful with purple eyes as she is with blue eyes. 

The "Royalty" thing

Everyone is royalty. You just have to search hard enough and long enough. You only get good things from it if you are in the straight line of descent, or a cousin and someone dies. You know when you absolutely don’t get anything from it? When you marry in. Your kids may benefit sometimes be you don’t. You also sometimes get disowned. If you marry in long enough, you move so far from the throne, you wouldn’t be able to inherit if God himself came down and declared you King or Queen. There is also which Royal line from whence you have descended.

ICYMI, Courtney Cox is related to…

So Sophie might have a royal relative somewhere. We all do. Unless she was born with a Lady or Duchess on her name, has title to a castle, something along those lines, she’s not royalty. At least as not as far as I’m concerned. Her grandfather got honors. Not her.

Bonkai fact

Bonnie and Kai are gifted magical prodigies.

Bonnie in the sense of her raw power and potential. Honestly if the show was consistent, she probably just could have killed all of the seasons enemies in like half an hour. Kay maybe I’m exaggerating a little bit, but still…


But in spite of her raw power it took her time to learn to control her magic. 

Kai Parker

Is gifted in terms of being born with natural control. Now I don’t know how powerful he would have been if he’d been born with his own magic, but I do know this:

He didn’t have access to magic for 22 years, because he wasn’t allowed to touch anybody, yet he was able to cast spells that his siblings had gotten to practice their entire lives. Think about that for a second. He didn’t have to practice a cloaking spell, he just got it. He didn’t have to practice phasmatos incendia, he just had it.

Of course his control wasn’t perfect, because he said he accidentally used too much magic on the manager of the mystic grille.

But my point is his loss of control on the manager was due to having too much magic. But overall his control and innate talent for spell casting is on point.

Coincidental foreshadowing:

Bonnie is going through her dark expression magic phase, and they’re all telling her “control Bonnie” “control

Then she meets someone who is dark, and he’s got great magical control. In fact he’s a prodigy at it. 

This foreshadows that Bonnie would have gone dark. Maybe not permanently. Maybe not completely. But there would have been an element of darkness to Bonnie. The PTSD (a topic that still disgusts me because of it’s bias and hypocrisy towards Kai) should have bought out that new darkness. 

um….any day now…

More coincidental foreshadowing:

She could have motused Kai instead. the fact that she cast a phasmatos incendia spell, which she always seems to accidentally cast when she’s going through emotional turmoil is telling.

More coincidental foreshadowing:

Out of all the people they could stick Bonnie alone with in 1994. Instead of it being with a guy who’d be decent to her, like Matt or somebody. They stuck her with a dick who insulted her for things outside of her control, and then came Kai the dark knight, who punished that dick for insulting her by vervaining him and stabbing him in the hand.

It kind of had a hero to the rescue theme, but not literally of course. It was also a lot darker, but still.

More coincidental foreshadowing:

It’s been said that Kai needs Bennett blood to escape the prison world, but he escapes 1903 without Bonnie’s blood. 

Maybe he did that astral projection thingy, like he did to rescue Bonnie.

But I think it’s important that they made a big deal out of Bennett blood and escaping the prison world.

Blood is kind of a personal thing for a witch I guess. Yet Kai escapes without that blood, maybe a metaphor for some kind of personal connection to Bonnie, where the lack of blood symbolizes that the personal connection is so strong, he doesn’t actually need anything literal to symbolize it.

I can’t think of anymore atm :/

  • Muggle Born Ravenclaw: I can accept many different things about the wizarding world but, what I can't grasp is why keeping a ghoul in the attic is a "talking point"
  • Pureblood Slytherin: Uh... well.. I don't actually know. My parents have always had Greg upstairs eating the moths
  • Muggle Born Ravenclaw: Greg the Ghoul? He has a name but he stays in the attic?!
  • Pureblood Slytherin: To be frank, we can't get rid of him. He seems to like it there

A group of muggle born Ravenclaws, who were interested in filmmaking, got together and formed a film production club at Hogwarts. One year, the club made a Star Wars remake starring their pet cats. Rumor has it, McGonagall played Princess Leia.
