Im going to make one with our solar system tomorrow 🌍🌌🌚🌞
I’m debating whether to make a character a medic or a navigations specialist and I have no idea how to navigate in space. I figured the stars play a role but would you know anything about it based on Star Trek or Star Wars or stuff? Or any websites that might help?
I know next to nothing about space and want to make my character as authentic as possible if I go with the navigator route.
Also does anyone know anything about the history of witches/witch craft for any websites with some good information?
These hoops were designed by the talented Sophie (@tophatmonster94) and were hand stitched by myself onto black cotton using white embroidery thread. Find more of her designs at her Red Bubble shop here
i often have issues with self-confidence, but as i was just sitting on my grandmother’s back porch in silence, with the moon and the stars reflected over the lake behind her house, i was suddenly reminded that i am made in God’s image. the same hands that crafted the constellations i sit underneath right now made me. and they made you. it was no accident that these thoughts popped into my head when i needed to hear them. remember this… you are lovely.
…100% of the proceeds will be donated to the The Ethembeni School, a boarding school for children living with Cerebral Palsy, visual impairments, and other physical disabilities in rural South Africa. CP is a cause very dear to my heart and I’m making it a mission to raise funds and awareness on this condition.
I’ve put this little embroidery of the Ursa Minor constellation in my shop - I intended to make a little set of these, but with my current workload I’ve had to accept that that won’t be happening any time soon, so it’s just the one for now.
I’m gonna kiss you like the sun browns you, devour me. I want every other freckle.
If the summer days were blinks that paradoxically lasted for eons and disappeared without warning too quickly, than the winter nights were long sighs that moved along slowly, settled in among the trees and between the houses, on the paths and in the naked branches, and took its time in passing, lasting longer and longer as the season went on. It came in one morning, and frosted the tips of grass and bits of metal along the wall, in the smoke that poured from chimneys and the sun that was just as bright as the day before, but not as fiercely as the summer afternoon. In the few months following the union of the ground and the sky, the world started to chill, started to grow crisp and colourful as the leaves burst aflame and then fall in a cascade of embers and light upon the world.
The summer days of long, unending sun faded and were replaced by nights that were conducive for only a few things, all of which made Lexa extremely satisfied. Things changed in the small bed in Lexa’s quarters. It was usually filled with a blonde, which was a fact the Commander quite enjoyed. She would return from her day and get stories read to her in that voice, and with those absent fingers knitting themselves under her shirt, in her hair. She would get questions answered and ideas explored. She got kisses and she got fire and she got to warm up from the winter outside. She got Clarke’s moans scalding her neck, tangling in her sheets. She saw stars in her own bed, she shook and she thought her body was not her own, and when she regained control, she got Clarke’s smile and eyes and voice. Lexa was torn with how much she loved winter.
I saw this and thought it would be a great way to add some cosmic vibes to a room or altar. Maybe you can change the design to include specific color correspondences for particular signs/constellations/planets.
