clams on a half shell

The Water Signs - Cosmic Toxic 

The water nymphs who came to Poseidon
explained how little they desired to couple
with the gods. Except to find out
whether it was different, whether there was
a fresh world, another dimension in their loins - Jack Gilbert 

Crackling stars dive into the sea, there are waves of heavenly popping candy, girls with mermaid tails crawling out of cosmic homes. One water nymph is Cancer, with clam shells shaped of half crescent moons and lavender glitter streaked through her hair. The middle nymph is impossible to find, the Scorpio who hides solitary in the depths deep below, dwelling in waters humans refuse to know. The final water nymph is Pisces, two spindled tails in ultra violet rainbow hues. As direct extensions of heaven, the water girls frolic in invisible oceans of daydream, conducting fantasy and imagery with godly wands. These girls don’t believe in myth and fairy tales and pixies and goblins. They don’t have to believe a thing when they have grown alongside secret and invisible creatures, when they have played unknowingly with fairies and ghosts. There’s no point in believing what they experience and know. The Cancer water nymph burrows into her shell abode on a peaceful stretch of sand, she is all about making the whole ocean her home. She is the great mother of the ocean, who births all sea soul, love, and life. The Scorpio swims in worlds unknown, crossing into oceans that harbour into portals of the soul. She hears whispers from creatures who have crossed over and sailors who have drowned in the night. Her frequency is not of this world, so unseen entities become directed into her company, murmuring cosmic prophecy and hissing brutal warnings of persecution. The Pisces swims on the edge of the horizon, in the space where the sunset meets the dawn and the sunlight meets the twilight. Her tail camouflages into the cosmic sky, splaying across the heavens like thoughts in the mind of God. Now you see her, and now you don’t. She is the temple where real and unreal saturate together, the great Queen of the Spiritual Seas. Sometimes they all collide. Moods stir the tides like whirlpools. Psychic energy becomes ultra powerful, almost too much too handle, they can shatter crystals together. It’s the most beautiful, watery symphony, elusive and enigmatic, fizzing like starry bath bombs in a cosmic maelstrom ;

Sea Witch’s Make Love Last Spell

Intent: To strengthen your existing relationship and make it last. Make your bond permanent. 

Ingredients: Clam shell, both halves (of a whole) - love, purity, the goddess Venus

A shell/small object to represent you and one to represent your partner - OPTIONAL, but nice; if applicable, you can go off of gender. Cowries represent femininity and augers represent masculinity.

Cockle shell - (can be replaced by rose quartz); love, friendship

Conch shell - (can be replaced by blue lace agate); communication

2 Roses or rose buds - love, passion

Rosemary - sea witchcraft, Venus, protection

Hibiscus - love, passion

Thyme - loyalty

Lavender - peace, love

Pink candle - love, friendship, care

Red candle - love, passion, lust

White candle - positivity

2 satchets for the herbs

Red string - love

Procedure: Cast a circle, cleanse, and/or ground as desired. Light the canldes, charging each with your intent. Annoint them with corresponding oils, if desired. Separate the two halves of the clam shell. If using shells to represent you and your partner, charge them with your association. Meditate with them and tell them your name and your partner’s name. Place them in one half of the clam shell. Then, place each herb into the shell, focusing on its intent. Do the same with the remaining shells/crystals and place them next to it. Close the two halves of the shell and hold them together, close to your heart. Focus on the fact that they are one shell but in two halvevs. Wind the string around them, binding them together, while imaginging an unbreakable connection forming between the halves. Imagine a magnetic force keeping them together. Once you have done this, let the shell charge by the candles and other shells until you feel it is ready to open. When you open it, do so slowly. Unwind the string but feel the energy of the shell still holding itself together. Feel the magnetic force holding it closed. Once you are sure of this, open it and separate the herbs and shells inside the shell into the two satchets. Cut the string in half and use it to tie them up. Keep one half of the shell and one satchet for yourself and give the other to your partner.

Weekly recap of the adventures of the weirdass party/family including a tiny ridiculous mime, a tired tiefling stabmom, a nerdy but sweet half-orc sorcerer and a VERY LOUD AND STRONK dragonborn barbo

  • “Hey guys we finally arrived in this new city!” “Let’s get trashed!” “Yayyy!!!!”
  • (calls partymember her son in Infernal) “What was that ma’am?” “Don’t worry about it”
  • CHOCOLATE CHEESE: THE HIP NEW INVENTION
  • Barmaid: “Oh, and my girlfriend-” Mime (dude): I flex to try and seduce her Barmaid: “Oh… thanks” *cries in lesbian*
  • Mime goes to sleep on the tavern floor, gets busted by the owner, somehow manages to convince him to not kick him out and then goes back to sleep on the tavern floor
  • And thus, upon getting a room, proceeds to sleep on the floor so his pet rat can have the bed
  • “Hey DM what’s the check to crunch a clam shell in half?” “Strength” “I got 22″ “You look cool as fuck”
  • Also, because we love our DM and his well thought-of, developed story hooks (thank you @triangular-reasoning):

anonymous asked:

could you do a full body design of your nacre?

ok so I just did this quick sketch at lunch and I’m sorry it’s not, you know, good, but here is, if not her whole body, at least her head and torso and all her arms and the big half-clam shell full of incubating pearl gemstones that’s where her legs should probably belong:

Technically, her ‘full body’ includes the entire factory, which takes up the size of a city block, because it’s all made of “her”, that is, made of living, growing nacre. She’s surrounded by waterfalls coming down from the ceiling into the saltwater tanks around her and she’s kind of just always got at least 1 or 2 sets of arms pulling recycled shards out of her gem and putting them in the tanks to form into pearls and then pulling the pearls out and putting them in the big center dish to be slowly funneled into other parts of the factory to be inspected and eventually form a body and be educated and trained and sent out to work. There also tend to be lots of already-physically-formed pearls around, climbing all over her and all over the new gemstones and hiding in the little shell chambers on her head and whatnot (because anytime they’re not actively doing something related to their eventually being assigned to serve another gem they kind of flock back to her and hang around her/look after her and she talks to them and they’re like this giant screwed up family of brainwashed clones), I just didn’t get into drawing them due to limited time/paper/level of detail
