Can we talk more about Lextra’s room here?
Like- homegirl has 4 FUCKING RUGS IN THE CENTER OF HER ROOM AND THOSE ARE JUST THE ONES WE CAN SEE IN THESE SHOTS
WHY DO YOU NEED 4 FUCKING RUGS LEXA
THEY DONT EVEN MATCH
AND WHAT ABOUT THAT FUCKING BEAR RUG HUH? WHO ARE YOU TRYING TO IMPRESS WITH THAT? DID YOU KILL IT YOURSELF OR DO YOU JUST LIKE THE AESTHETIC IT BRINGS TO YOUR WILD ASS ROOM

AND WHY THE FUCK ARE THERE CANDLES ON THAT WEIRD SHELF THING IN THE AIR ABOVE THE BOX IN THE LAST FRAME???? HOW THE FUCK DO YOU LIGHT THOSE FUCKERS?? DO YOU JUST HAVE SOME POOR SOUL OF A SERVANT BOY NAMED WESLEY WHO HAS TO CLIMB A MOUNTAIN OF YOUR RANDOM HOARDER ASS SHIT JUST TO LIGHT 8 FUCKING CANDLES TO MATCH YOUR MISMATCHED RUGS, DEAD BEAR AESTHETIC???¿? WHAT A FUCKING HASSLE

And also what the actual fuck are those floating candle cages????¿? Why the fuck do they hang so low? Just imagine Clarke getting out of bed at like 3 am to go to the bathroom, half asleep and tired af with her eyes barely open. She knows the rooms layout enough to be able to walk through practically blind but she always forget about those stupid ass candle cages until CLANG she walks headfirst into one and smacks the shit out of her forehead. And Lexa wakes up to the smash and Clarke’s half grunt half roar of pain and salty frustration and immediately goes for her bedside dagger ready to fite like ‘who dare attack me and my Clorke?¿’ ᕦ(ò_óˇ)ᕤ
And in the darkness of their room she just gets from Clarke 'jeSUS FUCKING FUCK SHIT FUCK WHY’ and Lexa is so confused and startled and disoriented and ready to kick some ass but Clarke is still going off 'WHY THE FUCK ARE THESE THINGS EVEN REAL WHY THE FUCK DO YOU NEED THIS SHIT LEXA FUCK’ and Lexa’s eyes are adjusting and she can now see that she and Clarke are the only one’s in here so she is just like ?¿ big eyes like the confused puppy she is and like stumbling through the dark towards Clarke with needy grabby hands like 'clorke my sun and my stars I will protect- where you be?’
And Clarke is just holding her forehead continuing to roar obscenities even though it honestly isn’t even that painful she’s mostly just tired and pissed that she has to deal with this shit at 3 am and she’s just 'LEXA GET RID OF THIS SHIT YOU DONT NEED 78 FUCKING CANDLES IN HERE AND 9 OF THEM IN FUCKING FLOATING METAL FUCKING SHIT CAGES’
and yes I did count all those candles and I counted 78 fucking candles fite me (don’t actually I’m small and frail)
And Lexa is just like 'shhhh klark my love come back to sleep’
And Clarke is 'FUCKING WHY LEXA’
And Lexa is all 'shhhh it’s for the aesthetic clork’
Clarke 'bUT WHY-’
Lexa 'shhhhhhhhhhhhh the aesthetic clock the aesthetic’
And a guard comes in like 'HEDA I HEARD SCREAMING ARE YOU ALRIGHT’
And Clarke grabs some random ass candle lying around and chucks it at this poor soul like 'NOT FUCKING NOW WESLEY’

I’m excited to reveal this! I recently had the pleasure of working with Anthony Michael Hall and Iconic Management, LLC on this very awesome project. (Thanks for the opportunity, guys!)

Some of you may know that I met Anthony Michael Hall back in October, but what I DIDN’T mention was that he commissioned me to create an illustration featuring some of his most popular characters.

ALSO - prints of this will be available at all the upcoming events he’ll be at. So if you ever see him at a convention, then be sure and stop by his table to pick one up!

I have a lot of cool things lined up this year, but this is perhaps the coolest so far. ;)

Projects featured in the illustration:
- Sixteen Candles
- The Dead Zone (TV series)
- Pirates of Silicon Valley
- The Breakfast Club
- Weird Science
- National Lampoon’s Vacation

Rose self-love bath magick!

You will need;

  • Rose bath product(s) (I used a Lush bubble bar called ‘Rose Jam Bubbleroon’)
  • Rose petals (I used potpourri because it’s what I had to hand) – for self love
  • Lavender (Again, I used potpourri) – for calming, love and purification
  • Vanilla candles and tea lights – for sweet thoughts about oneself
  • Sea salt (I used the dead sea protection salt from this month’s witch casket - contained nettles and patchouli) – to dispel any negative thoughts and to protect oneself from doubt
  • Rose quartz (I used a necklace) – for unconditional love and compassion

Method;

  1. Run your bath using your rose bath products
  2. Throw in your rose petals and lavender, speaking the words;
    “Lavender and rose,
    For calming and love
    I draw my power
    From the moon above”

  3. Scatter your sea salt throughout the bath
  4. Light your candles
  5. CAREFULLY get into the bath
  6. Wash yourself with the warm water, feeling the warm energies flow into you
  7. I suggest some mindfulness or meditation at this point! There are a million and one posts about how to do that!
  8. When you’re finished with the bath, say these words before you get out:
    “I feel the magick and energy flow,
    With each incantation, I grow and grow
    And to finish my spell, on the candles, I blow”
    [blow out your candles]
  9. Empty the bath and save the petals for a charm bag to carry with you and continue feeling the effects!!
“You’ve Done Me Wrong” Revenge Curse

For those who have done you wrong, a curse of revenge if the universe’s power of retaliation isn’t working fast enough for you.

What You’ll Need

  • A taglock or blood root
  • A poppet
  • A black candle
  • New moon water
  • A small bowl
  • Bindweed
  • Henbane
  • Dead, dried mint leaves
  • Lime

What To Do

  • First and foremost, pour your new moon water into the bowl for later.
  • Take your taglock or blood root and put it into the poppet of your target.
  • Next take your henbane and dead mint leaves and stuff them into the poppet as well.
  • Wrap your bindweed around the poppet while saying/thinking “You’ve done me wrong, you’ve done me harm, now you see what you have done. You will suffer the ways you’ve made me.” take your lime and squeeze/rub it’s juices on the poppet while finishing with “So mote it be.”
  • To seal the curse drip black wax over the poppet to “pin” the bindweed onto the poppet and briefly dip the poppet in your new moon water.

things associated with the gang
  • sodapop: the comforting smell of a nice gas station, popped popcorn, strawberry smoothies on a picnic, lemon-scented cleaner, glittering blue water
  • ponyboy: pencil shavings, paint-splattered notebook paper, the sound of an old typewriter, the sound of a ripping t-shirt
  • darry: freshly-chopped wood, scented candles, cologne, a perfectly tied tie, wind rustling through dead tree branches
  • steve: car grease, the sound of a kit kat breaking, a sigh of relaxation when you finally go on break, smell of wet household paint
  • johnny: vanilla extract scent, cinnamon gum that's been sitting in a car glove compartment for a week, a neatly stacked pile of paper, organized post-it-notes
  • two-bit: laughing so hard your chest hurts and your eyes water, sun peeking through grey clouds, water-balloon fights, a fire place on a winter night
  • dally: worn-out leather, small headaches caused by loud music and bright lights, drives with the windows rolled down and warm winds blowing through the window

anonymous asked:

What if the Day of the dead was coming up, and back at home Lance use to celebrate it and put candles up for his dead father (any relative really.) and so the holiday is coming soon, and the past few days is him in his room singing folk songs, lighting up candles, and holding a picture of said relative. Idk just random thought-

As someone who celebrates day of the dead, I love this; if you don’t know im half mexican half white, i know shocker considering my white ass skin

Okay, but does he make pan de los muertes? Does he celebrate how my family does (idk if thats how others celebrate it, I learnt everything from my abuelito so….) and puts up a kind of shrine to honor those that have died? Does he make sugar skulls?

And now, imagine that Lance gets told off for messing around by Allura and he just calmly explains too her what Day of The Dead is and she’s like, “I’m sorry for snapping.. can I maybe join?”- because let’s be real, this girl would probably want too honor her father. And then Coran joins, to honor his son. And then Keith, for his mom, and slowly everyone joins in. And Lance is so happy, because not only are they celebrating Lance’s culture but they’re all honoring their families as well.
