What I hate about heteronormativity is that you will get the most mind-blowing, realistic, palpable chemistry between two characters of the same gender in a show and the writer/cast will bend over backwards to pretend it’s in the fans heads or make out it’s some amusing and impossible joke, yet you’ll get the dullest, most rubbish, forced, stilted ‘romance’ shoved in your face and be expected to just go with it because hey, it’s a man and a lady who are white and moderately attractive, of course it’s true love. Of bloody course.
Green candle wax: To represent success and abundance.
Peppermint oil: Promotes concentration and regeneration.
Cilantro: Brings peace to your home (or wherever you write), also helps attune yourself to your soul.
Dandelion: Increases psychic ability and opens the mind.
Rose leaves or petals: Increases passion and motivation.
What to do:
Light your favorite incense to cleanse your space.
Rub gemstone with peppermint oil. Remember, a little goes a long way.
Hold gemstone over the incense smoke for a little while, then set it near by to charge.
Gather the Cilantro, Dandelions, and Rose. Place them into your bag. Shake it up a bit.
Take your small piece of paper and write “Writer” on it, along with any symbols/sigils you’d like to use if applicable. I wrote the word in both Theban and English.
Fold the paper, then seal it with green candle wax.
Place your charged gem into the bag along with the paper. Shake it up again.
Now get to work! Start that novel, or that blog you’ve been contemplating. Good luck!

Okay but I think people are forgetting that Laurent isn’t a feminine man by any means…he’s actually kind of fuckin manly. He’s built like the statue of David, described to have broad shoulders, a cut body and not to mention the strength to whirl around a 500lb+ horse while cutting down soldiers with one arm.
Damen used to chase after gladiators for crying out loud. You know he’s gotta admire Laurent’s body for how sporty and strong it is. He’s not like this…slight, soft-bellied boy I tend to see around the fandom. The super long hair, the soft body, always making him bottom (did we forget he nearly topped Damen if not for some rude premature climaxing)…
idk I feel like Laurent is being feminized into very boring, stereotypical role where there always has to be “a girl” of the relationship. And I feel like with all the different ways Pacat described him she was very careful about trying to avoid this very thing! Laurent may be a prettyboy but that doesn’t mean he isn’t masculine af too. I just don’t want his awesome character to fall into the same void that nearly every other ‘bottom designated’ gay man gets in any given fandom.
kyliebunbury My heart is heavy. 💔 Pitch will not be returning. I don’t have some eloquently thought out caption, because I’m still processing it all. Ginny Baker has profoundly changed my life and I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to play a role that resonated with so many people. I wasn’t ready to let go of Ginny, but more than anything I wasn’t ready to let go of my Pitch family- the cast, crew, creators and writers, thank you for the magic. MOST IMPORTANTLY!!!- Thank you to all of the fans who took the journey with us! Your support and love for the show has always moved us deeply! I love you all. ❤️ Ginny Baker out ✌🏽⚾️

the cast and creators of be more chill: everything you’re saying? all of this? it’s all canon. you kids have fun
Dean Winchester Has an Open Mind For a Different View
We’ve all watched the epic recap, right? So many parts of it stood out to me. Like the theme of family and trust - that sense of unity that the song is promoting.
So close, no matter how far Couldn’t be much more from the heart Forever trusting who we are And nothing else matters
Never opened myself this way Life is ours, we live it our way All these words I don’t just say And nothing else matters
Trust I seek and I find in you Every day for us something new Open mind for a different view And nothing else matters
Never cared for what they do Never cared for what they know But I know
I feel like putting the whole lyrics in bold because every word matters here. I think it’s such a gorgeous choice and holy fuck does it not bode well for October? It does. Oh, it really does, because look at how they’ve combined image with phrase.
Twice they sing “open mind for a different view” and here are the images for the first time these words are sung (so sorry for my crappy gif making skills) (I’m a WIP) (so is my software):
And here are the images used for the second time:
ARE YOU SERIOUS SPN?? ARE YOU SERIOUS??? (I get so excited) (I get SO excited) (I get JARED excited) (so you can only imagine)
Ketch. FUCKING KETCH PEOPLE! He’s used in both of these moments!
Ketch, who continuously represented Dean’s suppressed desire (HE ENTERED THE SCENE FIRING THE FUCKING GRENADE LAUNCHER FOR FUCK’S SAKE), as well as served as a reminder that the reason Dean is not “a killer”, which Ketch kept pressing on to try and manipulate him (mirroring Crowley) is because Dean is capable of loving unconditionally and Dean knows this now. It’s made him stronger. It’s an anchor into himself, into the person he wants to be, not fears he might become. It’s his bullshit detector, if you will. He won’t be manipulated anymore based on any fear that he’s not worthy of anything better.
Also, um, THERE ARE BURNED ANGEL WINGS LEADING INTO THESE WORDS, THERE’S THE BROTHERS HACKING AWAY AT THAT WALL TO THESE WORDS, THERE’S DEAN’S INTERNAL WALLS ACTUALLY COMING DOWN TO THESE WORDS!! (I fucking love you SPN writers cast crew ALL OF YOU)
Oh, they even INCLUDED A VISUAL TO UNDERLINE HOW THE GRENADE LAUNCHER META HAS BEEN COMPLETELY ACCURATE, juxtaposing KETCH using it when he arrived on the scene with DEAN finally blasting away with it:
AND THEY CUT SO THAT IT LOOKS LIKE DEAN’S USE OF IT IS TIED TO CAS!!! AND REMINDS US THAT CAS IS COMPLETELY UNSHAKEN BY THE BLAST!!! (DANCE WITH ME) (DANCE WITH ME!!)
And then, after flashes of flashes of flashes of quick, quick edits of what has transpired throughout the season (including the Pushing Up Against a Wall Moment AND LARRY), we land in the gifs below. We land in a sudden, drawn out reminder of how it all ended. And what’s most significant here - apart from the sudden slow pace and the absolutely startling use of sound as Dean screams that no (how IMPORTANT do you think this piece of dialogue is moving into S13?) (pretty important?) (I would agree) - most significant when looking at the recap as a whole is, of course, the chosen lyric as we linger on Cas’ almost too serene face:
AND NOTHING ELSE MATTERS
Has there been any other indication that Dean’s bisexuality will be addressed in the coming season and that his feelings for Cas will take centre stage and that this show is readying itself to deliver one great, big blow to the NORM of it all?
Well, there’s Wonder Woman.
There’s Bob Singer saying this season will be smaller and more personal than S12, which was so goddamn character driven and focused on emotional growth that I don’t even know… That’s a lie. I do know exactly what smaller and more personal means. I know exactly. Endgame, people.
There’s Jensen saying that if Dean once thought he’d go out in a blaze of glory, he now sees himself hanging it up, if Sam isn’t there anymore. (yeah I know) (I think I turned into atoms for a moment reading that quote) (hanging it up as in settling down and finding contentment with the man he loves no?) (yes!)
EVERYTHING POINTS TO GOOD THINGS!! EVERYTHING!! If one or two things pointed I could shrug and go “We’ll see” - but EVERYTHING IS STOMPING AND CLAPPING AND POINTING AND THROWING FUCKING CONFETTI IN OUR FACES!! IT IS IMPOSSIBLE NOT TO GO WITH IT!!
