Just like each herb and crystal has certain properties and strength, so do actions taken during rituals and spells. When writing spells it is important to include the proper actions to make sure your spell is as effective as possible.
Burning - Burning an object is a common practice in spells and rituals. Fire is considered a cleansing and activating force.
If you want to destroy something’s influence, burn it and dispose of the ashes away from your home.
If you want to set something into motion, burn objects related to the situation to ash.
If you want to activate certain energies, burn objects related to those involved.
If you are performing a curse or hex, burn the object in the flame of a candle.
Burying/Abandoning - A Witch might bury and object for many reasons. They might want to put something to rest, perform a slow spell, or banish something. There are different ways in which one can bury an object to accomplish a desired outcome:
If you want to keep something close, bury the object in your back yard.
If you want to attract something, bury the object under the front door step
If you want to disperse something to a distance, throw the object into a crossroads
If you want to fix an influence, inter the object in a five-spot pattern
If you want something to work by means of spirits, bury the object in a graveyard (but don’t disrupt those buried there!)
If you want to hide something’s point of origin, conceal the object in a tree
If you want something/someone to work by stealth, hide the object in clothing or on objects
If you want an influence to begin or strengthen, throw the object East
If you want an influence to end or weaken, throw the object West
Rubbing - Rubbing an object can be the easiest and most immediate way to experience witchcraft. Transferring and garnering energy from objects can be done through physical contact with an object.
If you want to put energy into an object, rub it with your left hand
If you want to gather energy from an object, rub it with your right hand
If you want to bring positivity, rub clockwise
If you want to bring negativity, rub counter clockwise
If you want to use crystals to heal, rub the appropriate stone on the effected part of the body.
Soaking - Water is one of the main elements used in witchcraft. It comes in many forms with many different properties and uses.
If you want something to move away and sink, throw it in running water
If you want something’s influence to rise and fall cyclically, float it in a tidal estuary
If you want to protect or cleanse something, soak an object in rain water
If you are focused on your personal goals, soak your object in sea water
If you want to bring about transformation, soak your object in snow/melted snow
If you’re trying to make a wish come true, soak your object in well water
If you want to banish, soak your object in harbor water
If you want to keep something close, bury it in your back yard.
If you want to attract something, bury it under the front door step.
If you want to destroy its influence, burn it.

Hello have some Patater before I must do homework :(
Two years ago, Kent Parson would probably have given Alexei Mashkov a
handjob under dinner table at that fancy ass restaurant, if Mashkov hadn’t been
holding his left hand over the table like a dork the entire time. When he came
on to Alexei at the bar the other night, he was legitimately expecting a night
of wild Russian sex (he didn’t know what that entailed exactly, but boy, was he
hoping to find out). He was, however, not expecting Alexei “Call me Tater” to
light up, punch in his phone number, and invite him out to dinner at a respectable
location. He was not expecting the walk in the park afterwards, or Tater’s embarrassed,
handsome laugh when they talked about everything from Kit Purrson to Tater’s
grandmother. He was not expecting to be kissed under the lamplight like some
lovestruck woman (or actually asked to be kissed, for that matter) in a black and white film, or to be kissed goodnight and left to his own devices at the door
of his apartment.
(This has almost never happened in Kent’s dating history, so
he didn’t what to do with himself for the rest of the night. He ended up
watching three episodes of Parks and Rec while finishing the rest of the Rocky
Road in the fridge.)
I’m a bit worried that I’m coming across as an overzealous random weirdo on the internet… probably because I am acting like an overzealous random weirdo on the internet. But I /really/ like this story, it gels so well with what I think about the characters in such a lovely manner. Sorry for being weird about it…
i wasn’t actually sure what Mob wears in this scene… but I wanted something he could bury his face in and for some reason I keep drawing him in this jacket.
“I’m about to go off and play a character who was originally white and blonde and has really big boobs, and none of those things apply to me. She’s sort of unforgettable. She has no morals. She’s an agitator assassin, a gun for hire, and she’s written the way male characters are usually written. Conscience is something she buries; obviously she’s damaged. It’s really intriguing. I’d never read a part for a woman like that. They usually have a tender heart or a soft spot for some guy. Not Tulip. You read certain scenes in the script and think: are we allowed to do this? It’s great playing someone unsympathetic and not having to justify her actions.”
I don’t… know what encompassing genre or category you could say The Raven Cycle, Foxhole Court, and The Secret History fall into, but whatever it is, that’s me. That’s my aesthetic. Bury me in their shared collective.
Rich teens/20-somethings have emotional issues and take it out in unhealthy ways that are most highly unorthodox for the private school/institution for higher education of which they attend, all while having their uniforms disheveled and a lit cigarette dangling carelessly from their lips. Also, someone ends up dead, and gay undertones become gay overtones.
