exotic finds

anonymous asked:

Recently the idea of witchcraft has become very interesting to me, would you possibly be able to share any resources to possibly help out a beginning witch? thank you so much!

Ooh have I got posts for you:

Other posts not by me:

Tl;dr:

  • You do not need to be Wiccan or any other kind of religious to practice magic
    • Nor do you need to be any specific gender, sexuality, race, etc. 
      • And don’t let anyone tell you otherwise
    • The only thing you really need to be a witch is a desire to be so
  • The term “witch” is gender neutral, but you don’t need to go by that if you don’t want to, there are plenty of other alternatives; “magic user” is a good basic one
  • Do a lot of research 
    • It never really stops1
  • Figure out what it is you want to do with magic (everything, only specific types of magic, whether or not you think you might curse, etc.)
    • What you decide for these is not concrete - you are not bound to working with one type of magic if you want to change to something else, you are allowed to change your mind
      • Sometimes things just won’t work, you aren’t stuck to continuing with those things if they aren’t helping
    • On this note, you don’t need a “witchy label” (i.e. sea witch or whatever), these things are just more meant to help other people recognize what sort of magic you practice at a glance - you are also not confined to that label if you decide you want one, you can do other kinds of magic as well
  • Don’t let other people tell you how to do YOUR magic - it’s YOUR craft for a reason; play around, experiment, find what works for you and run with it
    • Sometimes people are just shitty and will tell you you’re doing it wrong, no matter what you do - so just kinda be prepared to see that
    • Again, you’re not bound to working with anything - try out many new things if you want, find the one thing you really like and stick with it; you do you
  • See what you already own that you can use within magic, and then find out what you can do with those things
  • Don’t worry about buying “organic,” “fancy,” or “exotic” herbs - you can find the same properties and associations in regular household spices and herbs
    • On that note, if you have a Bulk Barn / Barrel in your area, GET YOUR HERBS FROM THERE. Seriously, my exand I went to one some weekend, and they have EVERYTHING. And so cheap!
  • Also, you can get a lot of stuff from the dollar store, WalMart / Target, thrift stores - hit these places up if budget is an issue
    • For the longest time all my crystals came from Green Earth, and every single one has worked for what I wanted it to thus far
  • If you don’t care about deities or spirits, just don’t work with them
    • Same thing goes with the astral plane- if you don’t wanna go near it, you don’t need to
  • Practice your fire safety methods
    • SERIOUSLY
    • DO THIS
  • It’s okay if you don’t practice every day, miss the moon phases or sabbats - these are not the things that define a witch, they are just things you CAN do
    • You are not less of a witch for not practicing every single day; life does not need to revolve around magic, nor do I honestly think it should
    • I have never practiced a single sabbat, and I think last month was the first or second time ever that I actually had my spellwork correspond with the right day of the week and moon phase
    • It’s seriously okay if things don’t line up perfectly timing wise; it adds a bit of a boost, but not enough to make it or break it
  • Try to have fun with it - magic is not 100% serious all the time, nor does it need to be

Best of luck anon! :D

Not great...but not terrible.

So for context me and some friends were doing a session set in a foreign land. We were a half-elf bard (me), a tiefling fighter, a human monk, and a elven bard. Me and my fellow bard had just finished out set in the tavern earning out party’s rooms for the night and I (having been inadvertently racist at the tavern keeper) decided to retire to my room. The tiefling is talking to the homunculus who ostensibly owns the bar and eating. The monk is sticking close by the other bard. Said bard decided to ply her trade (courtesan) at the bar and struck up a conversation with a half-elf man there.

Bard: Hey you looking for some fun tonight?
Half-elf: Depends on what kind you’re offering.
Me (OOC): *whispers* Roll for seduction.
*The table promptly cracks up. Once the DM gets control again…*
DM: Ok roll for seduction if you would?
Bard: *rolls a 14*
DM: Ok well you seduce him. You take him upstairs to your room and you both get undressed. He finds you exotic and beautiful. Then he asks for something you’re not used to giving.
Me again(OOC): Ohhhhhh he wants to get freeky!
DM: *laughing* It involves rope but not the way you would expect. Lets just say he’s the one who’ll have rope burn tomorrow.
*queue table cracking up again*
DM: While this is happening the rest of you start hearing noises from her room that are unlike any you have ever heard before.
*table is dying at this point*
DM: UNFORTUNATELY you aren’t used to being the one in charge in these situations. So he’s enjoying it but not nearly as much as he could be.
Bard: I’m sorry about this I’m usually the one in your position.
Half-elf: No worries I guess. It wasn’t great but it wasn’t terrible.
Bard: Well…isn’t that flattering. *she then proceeds to grab the coin pouch on the table and walk off to hang out in the Monk’s (her bodyguard’s) room.*

NCT MTL to date a curvy girl

MASTERLIST

Anon: Could you do a nct127 mtl to date a curvy girl? Thanksss

Hi bub!  Honestly, I don’t think any of the boys would care about weight of size, whether you’re curvy or skinny. As long as you were healthy and if you weren’t he’d still want to support you. I’ve done this as most being those who would find curves sexy and attractive, those in the middle who really wouldn’t care and those at the bottom who might find an athletic body more attractive or would want a petite, slim girl!

I also want to remind everyone that you’re all beautiful regardless of what you may personally think. Remember that you have only seen yourself in two different lights - in the mirror and in photos. Everyone else can see you when you’re subconsciously smiling, and when you’re laughing or when you’re speaking about something you love! You can’t judge yourself from only two perspectives, since there’s always going to be a infinite number of ways to see someone, ones you’ll never see but are definitely there…

(how have i never seen this before???? where is this from???)

Johnny is probably a sucker for someone with hella curves. He likes butts, and boobs and, thighs - the whole works. Maybe it’s because he’s from America where being curvy is considered sexy, but I think he’d genuinely like curvier girls nevertheless; being an idol means that he sees a lot of skinny girl idols so he’d probably want a “change” and a different look.

Yuta is low-key a fuckboy. He’s probably a very hormonal guy so finds any girl attractive but curvy ones would be his weakness. He’d find them exotic and refreshing and would be the type to always have his hands somewhere lol If you were confident about your curves, he’d find it even more attractive and even if you weren’t, he’d be showering you in compliments anyway.

Haechan would find curvier or bigger girls adorable and he’d just want to coo at them all the time. Curvier girls would catch his eyes more than other kind of girls. Well, to be honest, I don’t think he’d care really; he’d just a soft spot for them and would like the look of curvier girls.

Ten is definitely someone who’d like touching his girlfriend’s waist, hips, butt and thighs. He just seems as if he’d always want that physical touch with his S/O, so, naturally, with curvier girls comes more of this. He’d always be telling them how good they look or how much he loved their loved because he genuinely would be in love with them.

Mark would like curvy girls because he’d like how they looked in clothes. This sounds weird but hear me out lol. Dresses, skirts, tops, jeans - look different on curvy girls than slimmer ones and I imagine that he’d like seeing his curvy S/O in clothes which accentuated their curves. Also like Johnny, he’s probably fairly westernised in his preferences, so curvy gals would be attractive to him.

Taeyong would probably like being with someone the complete opposite of him. If i were to describe this person physically, I envision them to have dark or tanned skin, big hair and being very curvy. He’d probably like the contrast of physical features, so dating a curvy girl would be a no brainer for him.

Kun would like how squishy and cute curvy girls can look. I’m not saying every curvy girl is like this, but, Kun probably would like small and curvy GF because of how adorable they look to him. He’d constantly be squishing their cheeks and wrapping his arms around them and basically worshipping them ok

Chenle, I see with someone whose not exactly curvy but not skinny either. Just “average” in times of curves. Tbh he’d probably someone who isn’t an idol and therefore isn’t thin and is just at a normal, healthy weight. He’d find curves attractive and “no” curves attractive of course, but I just see him with someone who doesn’t fit into either of these types.

Renjun wouldn’t really have a preference at all. He wouldn’t look at appearance as long as you were healthy and well. If you were curvy, he’d date you. If you weren’t, he’d still date you. As long as your personalities matched perfectly, appearance honestly wouldn’t matter.

For some reason, I see WinWin with someone who has the body of a dancer or someone who works out. He’d like the definition and tone-ness of their muscles and the strikeness of their body (in comparison to people who don’t) If they were dancer, he’d probably want to do duets or something sorry that was completely unrelated lol

Jisung would either like someone who works out/dances or someone quite thin or someone between. He’s pretty young obviously lol and hasn’t fully grown yet and probably ATM anyway doesn’t feel that “manly”. A curvier girl, although he’d find attractive, maybe wouldn’t allow him to be the man in the relationship and feel big and stronger because a quite skinny boy.

Jeno…. TBH I really have no idea why he might not like curvier girls. I just see him with a thin and petite and tiny little girlfriend. He’d date a curvy girl if that person was still petite and tiny, so he’d like small curves over bigger ones.

For Taeil and Hansol, they’re basically at the same place for the same reason. I always see these two as typically traditionally Korean in their preferences for anything, including women. They’d want a cute, small, thin girlfriend/wife so they could protect her. I think they haven’t really been “exposed” to super curvy girls compared to other members perhaps, so they’d a slight preference for slimmer girls.

I think Doyoung might date another idol in the future, maybe even date one. He’d probably want to date another idol rather than a non-idol because he’d like having someone understand his life better than a non-idol would. And female idols are usually very thin and not overly curvy, so he’d like thin and slim girls more.

Whilst Doyoung would date an idol, I think Jaehyun would date a model. Not a normal model but some supermodel whose super toned and has like literally no body fat and has super long legs and shit in order to model (ik there are plus models but I mean the really think ones in this case) . Of course he’d still like curvy girls, but in the end, I think he’ll end up with a model of some sort.

Jaemin *sigh* everyone is going to hate me for saying this, but I think he’d like skinny girls because he’s a teenage boys. Teenage boys around his age (at least the ones in Britain where I live lol) just like skinny girls and they don’t realise that curvy girls can be attractive until they’re like 17+. I think it’d just be his young age which means he’d like thin girls. I’m sure all this media and shit with skinny girls, would only reinforce this.


THESE ARE ONLY ASSUMPTIONS AND OPINIONS. I REALLY THINK THEY WOULDN’T CARE AND IF THEY DO, THEY’RE PROBABLY A DICK REGARDLESS OF BEING AN IDOL AND YOU SHOULDNT BOTHER WITH THEM EVEN IF THEYRE YOUR FAVOURITE OKAY and that goes for anybody who says anything about your appearance too

anonymous asked:

do u have any good links/posts on how to fan out over PoC characters/ships without it becoming fetishization? (as a white/female fan). i checked out FAQ and didn't see anything but sorry if i'm missing something obvious

Hi! I know there are some circulating, but right now the only one I can find is only about latinxs. I could give you some ‘tips’, though:

  •  Avoid using language that fetishizes PoC. Don’t call your fave latino your papi, don’t compare dark skinned people (especially black people) to food, etc.
  • Ask yourself why you’re “fanning out” over them. Is it because you find them exotic? Does your fascination come from their race/culture? For ships, are you applying stereotypes to the character(s) of color? Are you hypersexualising or desexualising them? 
  • Don’t focus only on their ‘ethnic’ features when praising them. Yes, they are beautiful, and you can appreciate them, but if you fixate on them then you’re fetishizing them. This includes, in the case of “foreign” celebs, fetishizising their language. I die inside a little every time I see a gringx ‘swooning’ when Diego Luna speaks Spanish, or when I see k-pop fans making fun of their idols’ ~funny words~ in korean. 
  • Please, praise the characters of color, call them beautiful, handsome, pretty, georgeous, but don’t be over the top (especially, as I said in the last point, with their ethnic features) and be mindful of the way you do it. Why are white women beautiful angels who must be protected, but you want brown women to ‘walk all over you’ and ‘kick your ass’?
  • Again, this might sound like it’s not that important but please don’t be over the top. It’s so cringeworthy, fake, and obvious when a white fan’s ‘fangirling’ over a character/person of color and they just want ‘ally points’ for liking said person. Just. Don’t do that. Talk about them, express your love for them, but be sincere.
  • And if someone (read: a person of the same race as the character you ‘like’) calls you out on something, apologise and correct your behavior.

I think that basically covers it, but anyone feel free to add to the list!

whore-o-ween  asked:

My friend wants a pet tiger, how can I convince her that this is the worst idea without sounding totally bitchy? She also used to work at a place with tigers and was allowed to interact with them.

Whenever people ask me about these sorts of topics with friends, my first advice is: decide how much you value your friendship with this person before proceeding. These are contentious issues and pushing can and will damage things in all likelihood. So figure out where your morals about people in your life not having pet tigers is in relation to keeping the friendship and adjust your approach and tone accordingly. If you want to stay close to her, you’ll probably need to be nicer and it’ll take longer to convince her if you succeed. If you don’t care as much you can be a little more straightforward and blunt (although you’ll want to be careful because if you push too hard on any of it, the resulting cognitive dissonance will make her align with the viewpoint that is familiar instead of the one causing stress). 

I’d go through @bigcatawareness‘ tags on pet tigers and pull arguments from there, since she’s listed more than I ever eloquently can. 

Here’s the real problem - for most people, simply getting to see/meet a real adult tiger is enough to make them reconsider that concept. But when you’ve got someone who has already been introduced to them and it was in a context where they were ‘things that are good to cuddle’ and they never came across as dangerous that doesn’t work. They’ve already been categorized in her head as ‘things that will love me’ rather than ‘things that are highly capable of killing me’. 

It might be worth talking her through the realities of owning one to give her an idea of how hard/expensive it is. She’d have to move to one of the few states where it is legal, find a huge amount of money to build appropriate housing for it before she gets it, find an exotics vet willing to work with her before she moves, etc. See if you can get her to think through all the costs and planning and how much it would restrict her life (no more vacations, you can’t find anyone to petsit, and the moment you post on social media you’ll be harassed and potentially the target of animal rights extremism on a potentially national scale). That might be your best bet.

Hi! Im new to being a witch, can you tell me some basics I need to know?

From [this post]:

  • You do not need to be Wiccan or any other kind of religious to practice magic

    • I have never practiced a single sabbat, and I’ve only ever really timed spells once or twice with appropriate moon phases and days of the week, and all my spells have worked just fine
    • It’s seriously okay if things don’t line up perfectly timing wise; it adds a bit of a boost, but not enough to make it or break it
  • Try to have fun with it - magic is not 100% serious all the time, nor does it need to be

Other basics highly depends on what you want to do with magic. I will always recommend [energy work] - because it really is, like, the core of magic imo. Witchcraft is about bending energy and desire to your will to produce effects. In order to do that, you need to know how to work with energy.

From there, it highly depends on what you want to do as a witch, really.

You’re gonna need to do research. You’re going to need to read, look up stuff, fact check, and it’s a good idea to write this stuff down too.

Then, it comes down to experimentation. Take what you’ve learned, and test it out. Try some spells. Try writing some. If it works for you, keep doing it if you want. If it doesn’t, figure out what might have gone wrong and try again. 

Here’s some more resources - good stuff. Read a bunch of them.

NCT Kun, Doyoung, Ten, Jaehyun & WinWin's ideal type (appearance)

MASTERLIST

Ideal type (appearance)

Ideal type (personality)

Please remember that these are all just assumptions. Tell me if you want the next 5 members (Mark, Renjun, Jeno, Haechan & Jaemin)

Also thank you to @hobi-is-hoping for helping me come up with these! She has some really good ideas and I couldn’t have done it with her :-) x


Kun:

Originally posted by pourup

Kun would love tiny, smol and tiny girls. The typical innocent and feminine girl, with small curves and long, silky hair. Although I think his preferences would be typically Korean/Chinese, he’d be open to dating a foreigner or someone who didn’t exactly fit those preferences as long as they could communicate and they weren’t overly loud. Plump lips would be something he finds really attractive - why, I don’t know to be honest. Big eyes and soft features would also be something he liked; it’d make a girl look very innocent and naîve which he’d just love. In terms of clothing, he’d like girls with very girly styles; skirts and dresses in different shades of pastel pinks and purples, flowery designs and gold necklaces.


Doyoung:

Originally posted by doyoukki

Doyoung is actually quite tall, and I see him liking girls of short height; he’s the type to care for people and would want to protect his girlfriend, the short height making him to feel more masculine. He’d like light hair but not brightly dyed; shades light brown and blonde would look very pretty and exotic to him. I see him marrying a Korean but he would try dating a foreigner if given the opportunity. This would only be if they could communicate and she respected his culture and was willing to adopt some customs. He’s not the conservative type so wouldn’t blow off the idea. Likewise tone doesn’t matter; it wouldn’t be a deciding factor or preference. Like Kun, he’d like someone with soft and subtle features; not someone overly “pretty” by society’s standards. He’d like his girlfriend to be the stylish and daring type; the type who’d wear different clothes and styles in comparison with other people but nothing overly flamboyant.


Ten:

Originally posted by nakamotens

I see him dating someone around his own height, maybe someone slightly shorter or taller. He’s a very accepting kind of guy so I don’t think he’d mind if you were slightly taller than him; unlike the other members, he wouldn’t feel emasculated but rather find it kind of sexy. Very open to dating a foreigner - in fact, he’d find dark skin very attractive and would find himself naturally attracted to people with dark skin. Someone with a full figure and/or a lot of curves. He’d by the type to really worship his S/O’s body no matter what, but still - he’d like big thighs and butts and shit. Someone who has a “sexier” vibe over a cute one but doesn’t dress too provocatively. Saying this, someone who knows how to dress to accentuate their curves and figures but doesn’t show a lot of skin (because that’s saved for him ok) Someone who smirks a lot instead of grins and will sometimes wink at him to get a reaction.


Jaehyun:

Originally posted by suhyoungho

I’ve mentioned this before but I see Jaehyun with a model, or someone with model traits. Someone fairly tall, maybe even taller than him, and a small frame. He’d like it if they worked out and had toned body; he’d be impressed by the amount of dedication and time they had put into their body. A girl with striking facial features or at least one thing about her which really stands out and makes people just stare in awe. Definitely open to dating a foreigner; in fact, I think he’d rather date a foreigner than a Korean purely because he’s intrigued and would find them exotic. But he’d of course still date a Korean. Someone with a sophisticated yet unique sense of style. Wearing clothes that most people wouldn’t be able to pull off but somehow they can - and they do it very well. Doesn’t mean it was to be a girly kind of style, he’d be easily as impressed if they could just wear a plain shirt and jeans and still look good.


WinWin:

Originally posted by y-ta

WinWin would suit well with a simple style and look. It doesn’t necessarily mean they’re “basic” or “average”, but he’d like someone he could effortlessly good in the simplest of things. He’d be one of the members who isn’t that keen on dating foreigners. Sticking just to Chinese girls but perhaps dating a Korean or another Asian girl. He’s quite awkward and shy and wouldn’t really know how to talk or act around foreigners even if there wasn’t a communication barrier. Someone with a cute vibe but not a heavy one. Probably pale skin and rosy cheeks, with straight, black hair. Basically someone who looks quite similar to him in a sense. I think he’d look so cute with a small and slightly chubby girl, although he’d also date a tall and/or thinner girl if he liked them. Likes pastel colours and jeans on his S/O. Nothing too flamboyant or daring, but with many accessories like hats, scarves, brackets, rings and necklaces.

(( I went with the selkie AU. >w< And thank you! You’re too kind! ))

Arthur’s well aware of the laws of this world and, for that reason, perhaps he is a little cruel.

His husband rides out onto the sea in his fishing boat and returns each day with a net full of catch, some for sale and some for dinner, and they play out their roles this way. His mum had warned him lovingly that it would be an alpha female that would steal his pelt, as selkie females are quite fierce, so he’s certain she’d be surprised at the reality of his situation.

Alfred makes a show of offering him the best fish, as if to soothe his urge to flee. He brings him the best canisters of tea from the market, both local and exotic. He finds satchels of potpourri or bundles of flowers and decorates their cabin with them, insuring that the salty smell of ocean is infused with sweetened aromas of luxury. He does his best to woo an omega’s heart.

In a locked chest, in a locked room, Alfred keeps his pelt.

Stripper Yuuri

6 Inch -  It’s not a ritual, per se, for Chris to take Viktor out somewhere the second night before the short program, but it happens more often than not. Usually it’s harmless fun – a nice dinner, an opera – until one year, it’s a strip club?

Applause -  Victor Nikiforov is a four-time gold medalist from the Grand Prix Final. In his fifth year going for gold, he travels to the United States, and meets Yuri Katsuki. Yuri is a Japanese immigrant who works at a strip club to put himself through school and to support his family who are struggling to dig their roots into the new country. The two meet at said strip club, with Yuri not realizing just who Victor is. The two go on a date and things go on from there.

Cause or Effect -  Chris threatens him that he’s growing into an old man, and Viktor can’t refuse the invitation without confirming the slander. He let’s himself get dragged to a stripclub, set on drinking himself into a stupor in revenge. Though as it turns out the dancer is really hot, and despite the awful tie, Viktor really wants to bang Yuuri.

Guilty Pleasure -  Viktor Nikiforov is to be believed to be the best figure skater around but he starts getting bored and uninspired when everyone expects the unexpected from him. One day while he’s in Detroit for the World Championship this year, he goes to an exotic club and finds inspiration from a raven-haired boy with captivating eyes.

Let’s Be Sinners To Be Saints -  Viktor is a rich businessman who’s struggling with depression, feeling trapped in a life he has no control over. Yuuri works as an exotic dancer at a high-end club in New York to help pay his tuition. When they meet both their lives become a little bit better, and a whole lot more complicated.

My Heart Dances for You -  Katsuki Yuri is one of the world’s best Strippers. He travels to every country, visiting clubs and dancing his heart out on the pole. One fateful night, he meets Victor Nikiforov at a show. At first glance Victor is the most handsome club owner Yuri has ever met. And maybe, just maybe his heart started to dance for Victor that same night.

Private Show -  Chris had dragged Victor to an insane amount of strip clubs over the years, but that didn’t mean Victor expected to fall in love with a stripper.

Sharm - Sharm, - noun. - To bring shame, to something, someone or yourselfThe way he looked, The way he moved, Was apparently hundred percent different in person.
“Nē~ Viktor! You want to know about him. He’s a new addition. Japanese, he’s not Russian nor does he speak too much of it. But, the way he speaks is exotic. Quite a turn on, in my opinion. Though.. he’s so awkward. It’s adorable.”“He does have nice features. Though, his movements are quite sloppy. But..You always like gems in the rough.”

Sex on ice -  The stripper AU nobody asked for

Yu-topia Gentleman’s Club - Victor hadn’t exactly wanted the end of his long training day to finish at the bottom of a glass alongside his friend Chris, however he hadn’t expected Chris to drag him to a strip club, of all places. Of course, he also hadn’t expected to be introduced to one of the most alluring and blinding dancers he had ever seen in his life.He would have to thank Chris later once the show was over.

Stripper Yuri

Narcissist - For the first time Yuri felt his thighs wrap around that warm pole, felt the crisp caress of ones being stuffed in his glittery thong.For the first time Otabek felt a boner in his pants and a pull from his alpha instincts to pursue and possess.And for the first time JJ felt the sting of rejection.JJ doesn’t handle rejection well.

Madam Lilia’s Peep Show -  Yuri is a dancer for a peep show run by Madam Lilia. Otabek goes to watch a show… and this is what happened… (Yuri is of age in this btw)

Tantalizing -  The young man that was up there made Otabek’s heart stop, his breath hitched as he found his eyes laying on the most beautiful man he had ever seen. He could say that a million times and it would always be true. Everything about the man up there was just… Tantalizing. It was torture, it was bait. Never in his whole life had Otabek seen someone so gorgeous,

Stripper Viktor

Young and Memeiful -  Viktor is a famous stripper that nobody knows the name of, just a fake one.
Yuuri is an college student struggling to graduate in time so he can go home.
Combined they’re a mess but they probably couldn’t live without each other, even if they did meet with Yuuri passing out in an alleyway and Viktor wearing no pants and being slapped for intrusiveness over Ibuprofen.

it wasn’t supposed to be like this - Viktor Nikiforov, AKA Vitya, is the Living Legend™ of modern-day porn, who has always thrived on surprising his audience. Though his viewer count has never dwindled once, he finds himself bored of doing the same thing. So his manager, Yakov, sets him up with pole-dancing lessons Viktor can add to his repertoire, taught by a man who goes by the name ‘Eros’.This guy, Eros doesn’t know it yet, but he’s in for one hell of a ride (if you know what I mean).

Archaeology

I’m nipping under the wire with a small offering for River/Doctor day :)

“I don’t see why we couldn’t have just used the Tardis,” the Doctor complained, angrily flipping his hair out of his eyes. “We could have gone to the height of Artatraxil’s golden age, if you’re so curious about it. I took Amy there once, as a matter of fact. Why do we have to dig?”

At a different time—perhaps even earlier that day—River might have waxed eloquent regarding the value of hard work, the thrill of discovery, the need for grounding and permanence, and so on. Now, she just shot him a glare. “I seem to remember you asking that five minutes ago. You—” she poked him in the chest—"need to be more patient, sweetie. Maybe this will teach you.“
