circle of assembly

Mor/Rhys Headcanon:

Rhysand has known for CENTURIES that Mor prefers females.

He won’t act like he knows because he’s giving her the space to come out to them when she’s ready. But every time the Inner Circle is assembled and Mor says “I’ve got something to tell you-” he’s got confetti and balloons in that little pocket of side-space. She always ends it though with “-you’re all idiots” or “-we’re out of wine” and he dies a little inside at not being able to release the balloons but that’s fine- whatever she wants.

And whenever they go to Rita’s he low-key hits on females FOR Mor who he thinks she’ll like to try and guess out her type so he can be her super-secret wingmale (like 8 puns intended there). Every time Mor goes, Rita sends a report to Rhys about which females Mor danced with so he can decide if they are ~worthy~ of his cousin.

TL:DR; When Mor comes out, Rhysand will finally get to launch the confetti and balloons as he has been waiting to do for 500 years.

The final Dragoncon 2016 post!  Sunday afternoon was a vintage style themed outfit, much like my Star Wars Walkaway dress.  A Disney Princess Bleach Dress!  I was super proud of this one and it went over so well.  I had been planning to do a Disney version of the bleach dress ever since I made the Captain America one.  I think it turned out even better than the Cap dress.

I used Simplicity 1606 for the bodice, with straps from another pattern.  The skirt is a basic circle skirt.  The dress was assembled and finished minus the straps and bias tape before bleaching.  Then I arranged my princesses around the skirt and sprayed it with bleach, along with the cut strap and trim pieces.  I didn’t get a picture of the finished back on me, but I did remember to snap one when I finished the bleaching.  

The parameters of which princesses/heroines made it onto the dress fell under the category of “Cause I wanna.” In other words, I don’t care that some of them aren’t offical princesses.  The 16 ladies who appear, from back seam clockwise: Elsa, Kida, Esmeralda, Jasmine, Snow White, Pocahontas, Belle, Ariel, Tiana, Rapunzel, Aurora, Mulan, Cinderella, Meg, Merida, and Anna.  It took quite a few minutes for me to decide who went where.

I made the hat with extra fabric and gold sinamay.

INFORMATION FOR BEGINNERS SERIES, GLOSSARY OF TERMS COMMONLY USED IN WICCA

Glossary Of Terms Commonly Used In Wicca

By,
Rowan Moonstone And Durwydd Mactara

AKASHA- the spiritual ether (or Aether); the omnipresent fifth occult element which embraces the other four- earth, air, fire, and water; and from which they stem. This is the realm of “pattern” or causality, from which the realm the normally thought of “five senses manifests. Some define it is the "other” of the “two worlds” that the witch or magician walks between.

ARADIA- Daughter of the Goddess Diana, and a name for the Goddess used by Italian Witches or Strega, commonly used in many Wiccan traditions today.

ASPECTING- Any advanced magickal activity in which a practitioner manifests a particular aspect of the Goddess or God, in thought, feelings, behavior, appearance, etc.; Often as a direct result of a “Drawing Down”. Often a minor variation of this phenomena occurs with the selection of a “Magical Name”, of Craft Name.

ASPECTS- Forms, facets, or personas of Deity: for example, Brighid, Iseult,Eos, and Kore are all aspects of the Maiden, and the Maiden is an aspect of the Goddess.

ATHAME- black handled, double edged dagger. Principally used to cast and dissolve the circle, for which purposes it is interchangeable with the magic sword. A tool of the “Element” of Fire in the Georgian Tradition and some others.

BELTANE- May Eve festival. One of the Ancient Celtic “Fire Festivals.” on this night, the cattle were driven between two bonfires to protect them from disease. Couples wishing for fertility would “ jump the fires” on Beltane night. Also the traditional Sabbath where the rule of the “Wheel of the Year” is returned to the Goddess. This Festival also marks the transition point of the threefold Goddess energies from those of Maiden to Mother.

BOOK OF SHADOWS- Traditionally hand copied book of rituals, recipes, training techniques, guidelines, and other materials deemed important to a Witch or a coven. Each tradition has it’s own standard version of the Book and each Witch’s book will be different as he or she adds to it with time from many different sources. Only another Witch can see your book of shadows. Also, traditionally, it may never leave your hands or possession until death, when it should be destroyed, or (in some traditions) returned to the coven to be disposed of.

BURNING TIMES- a term used by some Witches for the period of persecution in the Middle Ages and later. It is in fact a misnomer in some places, as Witches were only burned in Scotland, and on the continent of Europe. In England and the U.S., they were hanged.

CANDLEMAS- Festival held on Feb. 1. One of the 4 Celtic “Fire Festivals. Commemorates the changing of the Goddess from the Crone to the Maiden. Celebrates the first signs of Spring. Also called "Imbolc” (the old Celtic name). This is the seasonal change where the first signs of spring and the return of the sun are noted, i.e. the first sprouting of leaves, the sprouting of the Crocus flowers etc. In other words, it is the festival commemorating the successful passing of winter and the beginning of the agricultural year.This Festival also marks the transition point of the threefold Goddess energies from those of Crone to Maiden.

CARDINAL POINTS- North, South, East, and West, marked in the Georgian Tradition by candles of green, red, yellow, and blue, respectively. The Circle is drawn to connect these four points.

CHALICE- one of the tools of the Witch. Placed on the altar to represent the element of Water.

CHARGE OF THE GODDESS- The Traditional words of the Goddess to her followers, or “hidden children”. Normally declaimed by the HPS at every coven Circle.

CIRCLE- the area in which the magickal worship and spells takes place. Can also be used to designate a particular group of Witches or Pagans such as “Silver Acorn Circle”.

CONE OF POWER- power raised in the circle by the Witches assembled, and sent out into the world to work magick, is usually visualized as being retained and built in the form of a “cone” prior to release.

COVEN- an organized group of Witches, led by a High priestess and/or a High Priest who meet regularly for worship and fellowship. The traditional membership is 13, but in fact most covens number considerably less. 3 is the minimum in the Georgian Tradition. In Middle English, “Covin” a group of confederates; In Old French “Covine” a band or group with a single purpose; Latin “Com”-together, “Venire”-to come or move.

COVENSTEAD- regular meeting place for a coven. Usually the home of the High Priestess or High Priest.

COWAN- a non-Witch. Formerly used in a very derogatory manner. Still used in Masonic Ritual to indicate the non initiate and/or pretender to “real craft”. Not often used today among most Witches.

COYOTE ENERGY- trickster energies. Named for the American Indian Trickster, Coyote, who tricks man into learning what he needs to learn. Applies to one who constantly jokes and clowns. Also applies to the concept of “Holy Fool” in many traditions.

CROSS QUARTER DAYS- The modern name for the Celtic Fire Festivals of Samhain, Imbolc, Beltane, and Lammas.

DEOSIL- clockwise, or sunwise. Traditional direction for working “building” magick.

DRAWING DOWN THE MOON- Ritual invocation of the spirit of the Goddess into the body of the High Priestess by the High Priest.

DIVINATION- magical method of exploration or inquiry into a situation via such methods as Tarot cards, runestones, I- Ching, etc.

ELEMENTS- Earth, air, fire, and water, plus spirit, which includes them all. These are regarded as realms or categories of nature (both material and non-material) and are not to be confused with the physicists table of elements, which the modern witch, of course, accepts.

ESBAT- weekly or biweekly meeting of a coven. Traditionally held either on the full moon or the new moon.

FAMILIARS- Either a Witch’s pet animal which has been trained to be a magickal helper, or an artificially created “elemental” which performs the same functions as the animal friend.

FIVEFOLD KISS, FIVEFOLD SALUTE- The Witches’ ritual salute, with kisses; (1) on each foot, (2) on each knee, (3) above the pubic hair, (4) on each breast, and (5) on the lips- really 8 kisses in all. It is only used within the Circle, but the words that go with it are the origin of “Blessed Be.”

GARDNERIANS- Tradition of Witchcraft descended from the teachings of Gerald Gardner.

GNOMES- an “entity” or “elemental” that dwells in the plane of Earth or is associated with the EARTH Element.

GREAT RITE- The rite which is the main feature of the third degree initiation, and which is also laid down for certain festivals. It is sexual in nature, but may be `actual’ (and private to the couples concerned) or symbolic, as the participants wish.

HALLOWS- name used by some traditions for Samhain, or Halloween

HANDFASTING- Wiccan equivalent of a wedding. It can be made legal if the Priestess and/or Priest are registered as clergy with the local authorities, or it may only be considered binding within the coven.

LAMMAS- August 1st. Witch Festival. The Old Celtic name for this festival is Lughnassadh. It is the Festival of the First Fruits, and is the first of the 3 harvests. This festival also marks the change of the Threefold Goddess energies from that of Mother to Crone.

MAIDEN- An appointment held by one of the women of the coven. She is virtually the assistant High Priestess. This term is also the descriptive term used to describe the first of the aspects of the Threefold Goddess Energies (Maiden, Mother, and Crone). It is traditionally associated with the Waxing Moon, and the period from Imbolc (Candlemas) to Beltane (May eve) where the energies are those of initiating, beginning, and creation.

OLD RELIGION- another name for the Craft.

PAGANING- Presentation of an infant to the Circle and to the Gods.

PENTACLE- a disc shaped talisman; in particular, the metal disc which represents the earth element among the witch’s working tools.

PENTAGRAM- The five-pointed star. With a single point uppermost, it represents the human being. Inverted, with two points uppermost, it can have Satanist associations; but not necessarily. Some traditions of Wicca use the inverted pentagram to signify an initiate of the second degree.

QUARTERS- The North, East, South, and West parts of a magickal circle or other ritual area. (See also “Watchtowers”)

REDE- rule or law.

SABBAT- one of the Eight festivals or high holy days of Wicca.

SALAMANDER- an entity that dwells in the realm of Fire.

SAMHAIN- The festival of remembrance for the dead, held on the eve of Nov. 1st. It is the last of the three harvests. This festival also marks the transition of rulership of the “Wheel of the Year from that of the Goddess to that of the God.

SPELL- a prayer, or verbal direction of magickal energies toward the accomplishment of some goal.

WAND- A rod or staff that is prepared so that it may be used for magickal or psychic purposes, usually to project some form of power.

WARLOCK- a term coined in the Burning Times. It was used to denote a traitor to the Craft, or one who had betrayed the followers of the Old Religion. It’s origin is Scottish. Because of the negative connotations, it is not used by most Wiccans today.

WATCH TOWERS- Originally from the Enochian branch of Ceremonial Magick, now incorporated into many “Traditions” of Wicca, these are the four elemental “directions” or “quarters” (corresponding to the appropriate points on the compass) called to protect the Circle during its establishment. Each of them have a correspondence between the compass point, an element, and (varying amongst different traditions) color associated with them.

WICCA- the name most modern day Witches use for the Craft. It comes from the Anglo-Saxon word Wicce, meaning to bend or to shape. This is the root word from which we get wicker.

WIDDERSHINS- counter clock wise. Used for “tearing down” OR BANISHING magick.

WHITE HANDLED KNIFE- the working knife of a Witch. It is used to carve candles, and for fashioning the other tools. Traditionally, it can only be used in a Circle.

You scrambled through your house when a knock sounded. You flung the door open. Anthony Ramos stood there and raised an eyebrow at your appearance. You were donned in sweatpants and a tee shirt. Not to mention a little breathless from scrambling to the door.

“You ok?” He asked. You took in his appearance. He had taken an effort to put on jeans and a white v-neck tee shirt. His curls hung limply around his freckled face. He had a backpack hanging off of one shoulder.

“Define ok.” You huffed and stepped aside to let Anthony in. He was holding two to-go cups if coffee, one of which was yours. You headed back to your room and emerged with a duffle bag. “Ready?” You asked with a nervous grin.

“If you are.” He responded with a much more relaxed smile. He handed you your coffee and the two of you left together. Opening night. At the Richard Rogers Theater on Broadway. You and Anthony rode in a cab and you nervously tapped your foot.

Hun. The whole Chaolena is dead post was terrible. You just jinxed yourself. As someone who's said "I know exactly what's going to happen in the next book" and then it crashes and burns I suggest not doing that. Rowaelin can end up in the grave. I'm not saying this to be a bitch. I don't even have any ships in that series. Chaolena can come out of the grave and Doraelin is not dead so..... In books there's infinite possibilities :)

first of all, hun, it was a joke. based on this post I saw ages ago and found hilarious.
obviously you do have ships specifically Chaolaena or you would not be so butthurt by my post.
I would like to point out that I am entitled to my own opinion and ship (and posts because it’s my blog?)
I didn’t tag Chaolaena unlike other ships because I don’t want to spam their tags. tbh I find it inconsiderate when people tag their anti ship in hate posts. don’t do that, people.
I tagged Rowaelin only because it was meant for fellow Rowaelin shippers. I have nothing against other people and their ships because like I said, everyone is entitled to their own opinion which includes their own ship. including you who is so offended by a silly 30 second edit I made.
my post was terrible you say? please. I didn’t write up a whole post bashing Chaol (and why are you dragging my cinnamon roll, Dorian, into this????)
I didn’t even say a thing about Chaol. OR DORIAN. I didn’t trash talk anyone. so I don’t really see what’s so terrible about it. 
I am sure the only people who are as offended by it as you are… are anti Rowaelin shippers. 
I simply made an edit to entertain myself and my friends and almost 200 other people so far.
and then you say I jinxed it? if my dumb edit of a tombstone has that much sway over the next book, I WILL MAKE 9000000 more.

“i’m not saying this to be a bitch” but have a nice day, anon.

James stared at his screen, watching the cursor as it blinked accusingly.  The document only had one word so far…he’d thought, if he could write it down, the rest would just come to him.  Evidently not.  He sighed and raised his hands to the keyboard, trying again.

Rose,

I know things haven’t been easy

No.

Rose,

As you know, I agreed to be a temporary tutor some time ago

No.

Rose,

You know that I think the world of you

Dammit.

He hit the backspace key several times with an annoyed growl.  This week would mark a month since his weekend in France, and a month since he’d realized Rose wasn’t actually looking for a replacement.  In a few days, he was supposed to be confronting her about this, which had all sounded so simple when he’d first come back…for about a week.

100th (well, 104th!) Follow Forever!

Hey everybody! This is WAY overdue, but I hit 100 followers RIGHT before the 18th of November, and went on a short hiatus while I finished my first playthrough of Dragon Age:Inquisition. >_< Please forgive my tardniness! I’ve had such a fun couple of months here on tumblr and meeting you all and gushing about our favorite things with you. So here’s my list, and consider my tagging you here as a personal internet hug for each and every one of you.

If your name is in bold, we are mutuals and if I haven’t spoken to you ever, it’s because I’m in awe of you and afraid to bother you. :D

Super special shoutout to a few folks before we get started:

  • noctuaalba, my Italian soul sister, how I wish I could cross the oceans to hang out with you in person. For now, I shall have to content myself with screaming at you about Cullen in all-caps on Skype. *HUG*
  • thejbusition, my first tumblr “friend”, by which I mean the first person to actually talk to me on a regular basis. I’m sorry we haven’t spoken lately, I’ve had a lot of stuff come up in “real life” recently and I keep forgetting to message you. :( Please forgive me, and we need to hang out soon!
  • swag-desu, my very first follower, thanks for being that little push of encouragement I needed to put more stuff out there for the Internet to see. You’re hella cool and we should talk more!

Okay now for all you other lovelies!
