A spell I wrote inspired from the film Practical Magic
This is a fire free spell used to draw in your ideal lover.
This is NOT a spell to make a specific individual fall in love with you.
This spell can also be altered to search for the ideal platonic partner. See the notes section at the end of this post!
- Pick any of the following flower petals and dry them*
if you have the time. But fresh petals are also okay. (you don’t need the whole flower just a a couple of petals) You don’t
need all of them, I’m just providing as many options as possible: White
Carnation (pure love), Dark Red Carnation (Deep Love), white
Chrysanthemum (truth and loyal love), Red Chrysanthemum (love), Red Rose
(deep love), Yellow rose (friendship/ caring), Orange/Coral rose
(passion/energy/desire), Lavender Rose (love at first sight), Tulip
(declaration of love/ perfect love) - Any other flower you can think of
that symbolizes love + companionship. You don’t need a lot. Maximum 2
petals for each flower of your choosing.
- Hot water (like just barely hot enough for tea. As long as there’s steam, you’re golden)
- water soluble paper (get rice/wafer paper OR look for the brand print-stitch-dissolve in a local craft store. I’ve found it in Michael’s and staples for around $10) IF you can’t fine the paper, just write on your flower petals, provided they are large enough.
- pen(s)/ pencil(s) in any color(s) of your choosing
- mug or bowl
- an open window/ outdoor space
What to do:
- Start boiling your water. Feel free to put it on low heat, this may take some time.
Take your pen and paper, list the qualities you seek in a love (be they
physical or personality related). If you do wish to use a visual
element you can print out images/ draw the qualities you seek. There is no need whatsoever to glue items together
- As you write each quality, rip it up from the page so it’s on it’s own strip, place it in your mug/bowl
- when you are finished writing, take your dried petals and crumble them/ tear them up, toss them into the mug/bowl as well
the mug/bowl into your hands and speak/whisper this chant
“Lover hear me. Lover know my name. Lover come find me. Lover follow my heart’s flame.“
put the bowl down, by now your water should be hot. Slowly pour in the hot water, repeating the chant if you wish. Let the steam send your wishes out into the world. Feel free to chant until you no longer see steam/ until the water cools.
- When the bowl/contents have cooled, pour out the mug/bowl. Be sure to wash it when you are done if it’s one you consume from.
Additional Notes: If you’d like, keep a copy of your list should you choose to keep an eye out for your person. Or if you’d like to perform the spell again. Feel free to copy any imagery as well and hold onto it if you wish.
To press + dry flowers you can either iron the flowers between sheets
of parchment paper OR press them under some heavy books (this can take
several days. But since it’s petals you’ll probably need a week max.).
If you use the iron method, make sure the iron is on the lowest possible
setting and there is no water in it. Don’t iron across the paper like
you would clothes, just dab for 10-15 seconds in each spot. Let it cool .
Maybe go over with the iron 1 more time, you don’t want to scorch/ burn
PLATONIC PARTNER ALTERATIONS: change the the word “lover“ to “partner“ in the chant. Look for flowers that have friendship/ familial/ unconditional love related meanings such as yellow rose, Jasmine, pear blossom, primrose, yellow chrysanthemum, forget-me-not, blue violets, ect. Obviously make more changes as you see fit <3

Eren was close to cry. He stood knee-deep in the water, surrounded by the ocean as it splayed immense waves around him. The sky was dipped in pretty sunset colours. Coral, blood orange, resting yellow, and tips of aqua blue mixed with faint lavender.
Minutes ago Eren had pointed at the horizon and claimed that there were enemies they had still to fight. Minutes ago he had been mourning over everything but also hadn’t felt anything at all. Minutes ago he hadn’t been able to form coherent thoughts other than the fact that life was demanding.
But now he wanted to ease off. Wanted to breathe, to feel, to swallow in that little moment of peace he and the others were granted with. Wanted to live. He wanted to hold him in the arms, dearly, and tell him that it would be over soon. Soon was so far away, though, he thought.
He wanted it to stop.
Eren stirred from the stillness of his body; closed his eyes, craned his head back and breathed in fresh salty sunset air. His lips quivered quietly and his eyes felt wet and swollen. Guess he did cry a bit.
He trudged back to the shore, being already received by him who had gazed at Eren from the distance.
Levi had his arms crossed and watched Eren’s every movement attentively; wary from uncertainty.
Eren didn’t want Levi to worry. They shouldn’t waste their time with that. So he met him with a smile, as hearty and genuine as possible for Eren, and he opened his arms, still stepping in water that went ankle-high.
“The ocean is beautiful.” he mused. It was as though his voice was strained from literally all the sorrow and pain from past years, tarnished and chapped, unable to return to its usual lively tone. However, Eren didn’t waste a thought on that, cleared his throat once and continued giving Levi a stare full of promises and love.
Levi didn’t move an inch. Went on gazing at his lover from a safe distance.
“Levi, please. Let’s enjoy this sight a bit. We won’t have that chance anytime soon again. Awe the ocean with me. Come here.”
Levi hesitated. Stood in place, fingers tightening around his upper arms and his usual frown grew.
“I’m fine watching it from this place here.” he retorted at last, and flicked his glance away from him, blinking.
Eren understood. There was something bothering Levi. He couldn’t weigh the seriousness of it, but there was something burdening on his shoulders. “What’s wrong?” Eren glinted a warm smile at him, a perfect reflection of the current sunset, personalized as a miraculous beauty which noone and nothing could take away from him right now—not even their enemies. Eren’s face bore signs of war and suffering, sadness and pain, sacrifices and death. They were present in all kinds of shape and form; visible and invisible, physical and mental, palpable on skin and lingering deep in his chest.
And yet there was still a bit of beauty – a bit of flawless perfection itself – grazing Eren, and Levi became weak to this side of him everytime anew.
“Nothing’s wrong.” Levi replied at last.
“What’s wrong, Levi?” Eren, sounding genuine, cast a familiar smile at him.
Levi stunned very lightly, a single vocal lost in his mouth. For quite a while his frown was intense, resolute, and he sulked in his own way. However, at some point in which Eren didn’t give up, patiently awaiting an answer as his expression remained the same and the salty breeze let his brown locks dance, Levi gave in. “I’ve never bothered to teach myself how to swim,” he began, gaze averted, a tiny blush tipped at his cheeks. He spotted the other soldiers already retreating to the back of the wall. It was time to go soon.
“So? I’m not asking you to swim with me. Let’s view the sunset from there.” He pointed at the vastness of the ocean.
“What kind of answer is this? I confessed to you just now that I can’t swim.” Levi’s tone got a tad sterner.
“So?” Eren repeated, and caused Levi’s mind to snap at his oblivious behaviour.
Levi extended his arms to the ocean as he explained, “Those are some big-ass waves! One probably needs a solid hold on their own feet if one doesn’t want to get splashed to the ground by them. Yes, even I, Humanity’s Strongest Soldier, have my worries. Horrendous, isn’t it?” Annoyed, Levi huffed, crossed his arms again and found the view of the other cadets making their way away from the ocean more interesting than looking into the emerald eyes of his own lover right in front of him, who was probably giving him one of his childish grins.
“I’ve waited so long for this.”
“Well, then, don’t mind me. I don’t want to ruin this moment for you. Go, admire the ocean alone. I’ll be fine all by myself here.” He waved a hand dismissively, still refusing stubbornly to meet his lover’s face, which was why he startled out of surprise when Eren took his wrists, tenderly, and planted a kiss on his cheek.
Levi flustered and felt more heat accumulating eagerly under the skin of his face. Heart pumping faster, blood coiling comfortably like woods being lit up for a bonfire, and emotions sprinkling every spot inside him, Levi found himself in a different state; enveloped by a warm proximity that Eren’s voice and touches and scent had created.
“I was waiting for the moment where I’d finally get to know Humanity’s Strongest’s fear. I never thought of you as fearless, you know. No one is.” Eren’s words sounding off right next to his ear woke up rare shivers of endearment which then intermingled with the haze of love revolving around them as naturally as the earth revolving around the sun.
At first Levi felt offended, acted like this, but the scowl on his face sought nothingness very quickly. His brows softened and so did the rest of his face.
“Fine, now you know? So what?” Levi scoffed and wanted to take some physical distance from Eren. “Oi, brat! Wait!” But Eren had lifted his body up, carrying him in his arms, before Levi could finish his thought. The boy with the emerald eyes, which let the narrow sunshines diffuse inside of his iris, glittered a smile. A lovely smile in that cruel world both were trapped in. Hostages of merciless life. Levi bumped a fist against Eren’s chest. “Let me down.” he ordered, voice stern but the authority seemed non-existent right at that moment.
So Eren stepped up forward, stalking through the sand and straight to the waves, deeper and farther, holding Levi as close to him as possible as he brought him closer to the sunset.
Eren’s face wore less strains, less crinkles, less pain, less despair and Levi was actually grateful to see him loosened for a moment. That was why he let himself get carried by Eren. If Eren wanted to see the ocean with him, then Levi shouldn’t complain about it, so he thought at the very least.
“It’s beautiful, isn’t it?”
Levi shifted his gaze forward and stared. Watched the waving water that produced froth as it weltered. Eren’s longer hair swaying in the wind, salty liquid tickling at Levi’s ankles, and for that one moment everything felt okay. Alright. Normal. Perfect.
we are still doing the halloween series because it’s not even halloween it’s more like monster au which is chill with me man
because scooby doo
actually tae is based on scooby doo but that’s later
jimin is a siren
this is gonna be super sad but bare with me for a few moments okay?
so back in the day, like a long time ago
like the 1600s or whatever yah?
jimin was but a young man, a young sailor in fact, who was one of the most well-known sailors across the face of the earth because wherever he went, the people absolutely adored him?
like whenever he entered a sea port of a familiar place, people would flood (ahah) the docks to come and see him and they would decorate him with the local flora of their homelands so he always had like a flower crown of some sorts??
and he had like the most beautiful goods back home in his little cottage off the beach like seashells and glasses and beads and different types of exotic plants and different types of clothing too
all the aunties in his hometown would always tease him like “honey aren’t you going to settle down soon?”
and he would always get blushy and shy and hide behind his hands and kinda!! “the ocean is my one true love!”
which isn’t a lie
like he is never happier than when he is out on the sea
but people become jealous of him
and why wouldn’t they?
he has the kindest soul and the brightest smile to complement this
he is the most famous sailor in the seven seas and has the most riches the world has to offer (even if too many, they aren’t special because it’s not gold and jewels)
so one day, jimin is sailing for one of the remote islands when his ship hits a monstrous tempest
it rocks the ship and waves crash over the sides of the boat and the ship spins around and around and around like a top
everyone is holding on to whatever they can find, trying to stay alive
jimin is valiantly trying to steer the ship, doing his best to get the crew out of this nightmare alive
a few of the men who are trying to take down the mast get together and pull the ropes so that it swings towards jimin
with the skies darker than night itself, and rain blinding him, jimin doesn’t see it coming before it’s too late and he’s whacked in the back of the head, falling unconscious to the deck floor
the men run over and grab him. and not thinking twice, they throw him overboard into the raging sea
but the ocean loved jimin, you see
and the ocean did not want jimin to die
but there is not much the ocean could do, save transform jimin into one of its own
when jimin wakes up, he finds himself to be lying on a sandy beach
he can’t remember what happened
he can’t remember what went wrong
he pushes himself into a sitting position, but suddenly, it’s as if there’s a ton of bricks on his chest, stealing the air from his lungs and causing him to sputter and choke
he does what seems natural in that moment and he throws himself into the salty ocean
and that’s when he realizes it
his legs have been replaced with a sleek, midnight blue tail, his skin now decorated with scales down near his hips
his hair is bright orange, like coral too
oh right, he can breathe underwater too
at first jimin is like well im a mermaid okay theN
and he takes a long time to adjust like he’s always getting lost in the sea and one time he gets tangled in seaweed and a dolphin has to come save him or something i cry and another time he almost gets caught in a net
he didn’t have a family back on land so that’s not that big a deal but he misses all the people he befriended on his journeys and wonders if they miss him as much as he misses them
he doesn’t realize he’s a siren until a little later though
in the beginning he doesn’t like to go anywhere near land, because he’s scared someone will recognize him or they’ll try to catch him or something like he’s a fish?
but soon curiosity gets the best of him and there’s a little cove near the shore, down a ways from the local port
there’s a few rocks right, and jimin likes to keep his tail fin in the water so he can you know, stay alive (because in this au that’s all it takes to be good to go), but perches the rest of his tiny lil self up on the rock to people watch
jimin has the voice of a haunting angel like he sends chills down my spine and it’s the same way in this au
like in human form people loved jimin’s voice and would kill to hear it, especially in the rare moments he took the time to sing because he’s a shy lil bun who gets super insecure when singing aloud right?
his singing voice is heightened by like twenty million percent now like he has graduated from angel voice to god voice
he realizes his power one day when he’s singing to himself and he kinda just gets louder because he thinks he’s alone
and this fisherman who jimin thought was like seven million feet away steers his rowboat on over and jimin is facing the other way and playing with some starfish friends so he doesn’t notice the dude until it’s too late
he was so hypnotized by jimin’s voice that he kept coming closer and closer and closer and the area where jimin likes to hang is seriously surrounded like absolutely surrounded by works and no boat, however small, would make it through the tight space
jimin spins around when he hears a sharp crack and to his horror this kid has completely wrecked his boat on the side of a rock and now seems to be sinking
jimin dives in and pulls the kid to shore and shakes him violently and to his absolute horror, the dude starts to float and jimin screams because he’s like oMG HE DIED
but the kid laughs “im taehyung, im a ghost right, and i thought i was pretty invincible but wow your voice, ive never heard anything more beautiful in my life!!”
and that’s the start of the best friendship in the world i felt like i needed to include this because 95 line bros
but yah after that jimin is like that was a close call i gotta be careful,,,
that isn’t the case
he loves singing, as much as he loved sailing back in the day, and jimin doesn’t mean too but his voice lures sailors over wherever they are, and causes half of them to crash if jimin doesn’t stop himself from singing in time
he always saves them but god it takes so much energy and people are starting to whisper about a fish boy who needs to be taken care of, so jimin decides it’s time to leave for good
he’s scared and lost and he doesn’t know what he’s going to do but guess what everything ends up being okay because guess who’s living near the sea where he ends up
oh right that’s you
i don’t live near a beach so idk if this even accurate but in barbie movies they always run on the beach with their dogs and shit
for the sake of the story that’s what you’re doing when jimin sees you
your lil puppy has escaped from you and has decided that they’re gonna race down the sand with a giant stick in their mouth and make you chase them
jimin has just settled into the new area and found himself a rock to lounge on
and it’s nice because this isn’t a port it’s just a beach and not people visit the beach because it’s a more elderly neighbourbhood in a small town and people are too old and decrepit to walk around the rocks
that’s why he has no fear chilling out on his rock and singing to himself and occasionally the seagulls
but somebody just has to ruin that
that’s somebody is you if you didn’t catch on
you’ve finally caught your puppy right and you hold them in your arms and bop their nose like “excuse me i did not give you permission to run away from me you ungrateful brat”
but you stop your scolding because something has caught your attention and it’s the most beautiful thing in the world
you set your puppy down and without thinking about it much, you wade into the water because that’s where the sound seems to be coming from
you’re like waist deep now but that’s okay because you can run home and change soon, this is way more important
you’re trying to be quiet as possible but then a gross piece of seaweed rubs against your leg and you shriek and jimin hears this and sees you standing there and he panics
you’re screaming, he’s screaming, your dog is rolling around in the sand
jimin rushes to dive into the water but you tell him to wait and despite what he knows is best for his safety he doesn’t leave his rock and instead waits for you to say something else
“you have a nice voice!!” you call out to him and you feel so stupid that your face ends up going bright red
and jimin gets all cute and blushy and waves shyly “uh thank you!”
“are you a mermaid?”
“i’m a siren actually…”
“oh man holy shit, that’s cool!!”
and now he’s really blushing because nobody has ever thought him to be anything positive like they tried to drive him away from the village but you’re like excited to see him??
his little heart swells in his chest and he waves you over
you’re like wth why not so you go and swim over and prop yourself up on the rock and you fall back off when you see his tail because is the prettiest thing you’ve ever seen in your life, like it reflects the sunlight and shimmer and glows and wow you’re amazed
jimin panics and pulls you back up onto the rock “please be more careful!”
“yOURE SO PRETTY” you blurt out
and jimin is so red and he just stares at you with wide eyes and his lips part slowly and he just kinda smiles softly “you think so?”
“um yes can i like… can i see your scales!”
and he nods and you like low key pet his scales right and he starts to giggle hysterically because it tickles so much and his laugh is the most pure sound you’ve ever heard in your life and wow are you falling for a siren that’s uncomfortable
you visit jimin every morning after that
like it’s not even low key you purposefully go out of your way to go and find him and you two will sit up on his rock as long as time permits and he’ll show you all the different types of sea stars and he can point out different types of kelp and he’ll talk to the waves for you and it’s super cute??
he likes to bask in the sun like literally bask and during those times he’ll rest his head in your lap and ask you to play with his hair and during these moments he’ll tell you about his life before he became a siren and he’ll tell you about all the places he’s explored and talk about all the wonderful people he’s met
and one day he kinda glances up at you “but you’re my favorite by far”
and believe it or not you fall hard for jimin
and you’re super butt hurt because you can’t even like !! do anything because he can’t leave the water for more than a few minutes without like nearly dying?
but god you want nothing more than to snuggle with him in bed and watch some quality movies like scooby doo and the ghoul school
and like walk down the streets hand in hand and dress him in cute scarves and sweaters but nooo
you’re gonna somehow get it to work though
you’re determined as hell though
one night you stay up all night deciding how to save jimin right
and you go down to find him at your rock but he’s not there
your breath hitches in your throat because maybe he went underwater for a moment but as time goes on you realize you’ve been standing around for half an hour now and he’s nowhere in sight
you start to pace in the sand and you’re running your hands through your hair and you’re going to cal beach security or something if that even exists in the old people neighborhood
he wouldn’t leave you would he?
would he actually get up and just leave?!
you start to tear up and you grab a handful of sand and throw it into the water as if that would do something for your cause
and you wade out to your rock and you stand up on top of it and stare down into the water, somehow thinking that if you stare hard enough that jimin will magically appear
but some old grump has been watching the beach activity from his window and you’re screaming and shrieking has annoyed the heck out of him so he opens his window and sticks his head out and hardcore cusses you out and you get so surprised that you lose your balance and completely fall into the water
and you’re so stunned that you kinda forget how to react aka swim and you feel yourself sinking but you can’t remember how to swim you’re so shocked and scared that your senses shut off
and you’re sinking and sinking and sinking
but suddenly a pair of arms wrap around you
surprise it’s jimin!
he presses his lips to yours and breathes air back into your lungs
and then hoists you back up to above the surface
you’re sputtering and he’s panicking but you’re fine, you weren’t under there too long
but you kinda!! “jimin what the hell i thought you got kidnapped or something!!”
and he’s also like !! “what the hell, i thought you were going to drown!!”
you both end up laughing a bit because what’s the irony huh
is that the right word
“i was looking for something for you!” he explains after a bit, a sheepish pink color on his face
he he holds open his palm and it’s a beautiful pink pearl and he just starts rambling about how some of the fish told him it was at the bottom of the bay and he wanted to get it for you !!
and you’re all emotional and you hug him and take the pearl and you’re just so !! because he would do something like that for you??
but then you think about what you’re gonna do and you’re kinda like “look i brought a kiddy pool and i wanna drag you back to my house bcuz i want you to live in my bathtub until we figure something out!”
and he goes super red at this and his eyes get all wide and he just stares at you
before kissing you for real
and guess what!
you guys do get things figured out
because our lovely witch seokjin comes to the rescue
you’re talking to your pal yoongi about this situation because you know his lil secret mm hmm and he’s like um i have a witch friend who would be able to help go hit him up?
and so you see seokjin and he gives you a potion
you bring it to jimin who’s waiting on the rock for you as usual
and before he drinks it you’re like !! only if you want to!!
and he says something super cheesy like “well of course i wanna spend the rest of my life with you” with like seventy five winks following after
and so you hand him the potion and he drinks it
you hold your breath as a bright light envelops him
he can feel his entire body morphing and it’s exciting but also terrifying because what if something goes wrong?
when the light disappears, jimin is standing there, with legs and everything, a pair of neon green swim trunks on
his hair is still bright orange and upon closer examination, he has scales on his hips still, but they’re not very noticeable unless you’re looking
he runs over you to you but he’s not used to legs and he trips and falls and you start to cackle
then of course run over and help him up and hug him super tight and then he kisses your face all over
it takes a while to adjust though
like he always chills in your bathtub and pretends the bubble bath is sea foam
refuses to eat any sort of seafood and claims he can hear their dying words if you do
sings at all hours of the day and you usually have people staring at the two of you when you’re out and about because his voice is still so powerful
but it’s super cute and you guys are grossly in love the end
