Tú siempre serás mi excepción favorita, esa regla que he roto varias veces, eso que negué, lo inimaginable, eso a lo que dije nunca más.

Dream big they say, shoot for the stars, then they lock us away for 12 years and tell us where to sit, when to pee and what to think. Then we turn 18 and even though we’ve never had an original thought, we have to make the most important decision of our lives and if you don’t have money and don’t really have the grades, a lot of desicions gets made for you.

INFORMATION FOR BEGINNERS SERIES, THE ELEMENTS

The Elements

What do earth, air, fire, and water have in common? It’s elementary, my dear Watson. All four are called elements and their use is everywhere in witchy practices.

Each element corresponds to a quarter when used in Pagan rituals (the quarters are the four directions-north, south, east, and west-each of which corresponds to an element), and each also has various colors and properties that are associated with it. For instance:

Earth-The north quarter. Usually associated with the color green (although some use brown), it is said to be grounding and is associated with the physical body, the home, the practical matters. You can use anything earthy to represent this element on your altar, even a small plant, but I like to use a rock or gemstone crystal.

Air – The east quarter. Associated with the color yellow (so if you are using candles at eachof the four quarters in your circle, this is the color for that quarter – see how this works?) and the intellect and communication. It is usually represented on the altar by a feather or incense, since the smoke from the incense floats up through the air to the gods.

Fire – The south quarter. Associated with the color red, creativity, and passion (whoo, baby!), fire can be represented on the altar by a small burning candle or a small cauldron.

Water – The west quarter (if you have trouble remembering which one is which, as most of us do in the beginning, try remembering water=west, air=east, since the sounds are close). Associated with the color blue, the emotions, intuition (things that are always fluid and ever-changing). Water is usually represented on the altar by, well, water. You can put some out in a bowl or a special container, or use a shell instead if you want.

These four elements show up in almost every aspect of day-to-day Witchcraft, but it is important to remember that there is a fifth element that we recognize as well, and that is the element of Spirit. This element is what binds the other four together as indeed it binds us all to each other. And of all the elements that you use as a Witch, spirit is probably the one that you will call upon the most, whether you realize it or not.

Name: Breanna
Age: 21
Country: USA

Hello, I’m Breanna. I live in California in the US. I am a college student studying Early Childhood Education, hoping to become an Elementary school teacher.
A few things about me: I love to read (fiction, non-fiction, sci-fi, poetry, and YA), I listen to all types of music and usually have music on with whatever I am doing, I binge-watch all types of shows (Netflix!!! House M.D, Shameless, Agents of Sheild, Pretty Little Liars, etc.), I speak English and have a very small understanding of Spanish, I have three cats, I love to swim, be with family, talk all day, shop, watch football (Go Patriots!), and a bunch of other stuff.
I would love to have a pen pal because I love to talk, and interesting people interest me! I get along easily with people, but am a bit anxious in real life.

Preferences: Any age is fine, and any gender is fine. Texting, snail-mail, and whatnot is fine!

Sogna in grande, dicono, mira alle stelle. E poi ci rinchiudono per 12 anni e ci dicono dove sederci, quando far pipì e cosa pensare. Poi compiamo diciotto anni e senza aver mai avuto un nostro pensiero, dobbiamo prendere la decisione più importante della nostra vita.

It’s like Reigen’s been waiting for the question. He stops dead on the pavement, grips Mob by the shoulders, and stares down into his eyes with an expression as haunted as though every ghost the pair of them has ever exorcised has taken up residence behind it. “Mob,” he says. “Mob,” he says again. “Tell me, Mob. Look at me and tell me. Tell me truthfully. Do I look cursed to you?”

Mob looks at him, and tells him truthfully. “No.”

“Well, you didn’t look very long,” says Reigen. “Let’s just stand here for a moment, like so, and you can have another look, a nice long look, and really think about it…”

 (There’s nothing strange about being called back to exorcise the same haunted photocopier six days in a row. It must just be a very haunted photocopier.)

It Runs in the Family

Teru agrees to attend a party celebrating his uncle’s full recovery after a horrific “car accident,” but he’s not excited about reconnecting with his cousin, Minori, who he recalls is as bad, and likely worse, as he used to be. 

However, he is not expecting to find her trying to turn over a new leaf in the wake of a traumatic spiritual possession, and in dire need of a confidant. Fortunately, or perhaps unfortunately, they have more in common than Teru would like to admit…especially when he realizes that Minori is trying to track down her mysterious rescuer.

A Breach of Trust

phantomrose96

http://archiveofourown.org/works/8472670/chapters/19413469

This is a world in which Mob and Reigen’s paths have never crossed, in which 10-year-old Mob found psychic guidance in the form of the aging, retired tv personality Keiji Mogami, in which Reigen followed through on his plans to close the Spirits and Such Agency, in which a cruel twist of Mob’s powers forces him to confront how dangerous he really is.

10 year old Shigeo Kageyama has vanished, his trail instantly cold, and his case gathers dust in police archives as a kidnapping never solved. Four years pass before a chain of events causes his path to cross with that of the despondent, unfulfilled fake-psychic-turned-fake-investigator, Arataka Reigen. Reigen finds himself in over his head caring for an escaped victim of abuse who, for reasons unfathomable, has been taught to believe his very existence is a horrifically dangerous thing…
