fae creature

thesuninperigee  asked:

hello I would like to request the recipe for fairy cakes out of pure curiosity with zero intent to make anything

*gives you a stern measuring look* 

For the sponge:

  • 110g/4oz butter softened at room temperature
  • 110g/4oz caster sugar/baking sugar
  • 2 eggs lightly beaten
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 110g/4oz self-raising flour
  • 1-2 tbsp milk

For the icing/frosting

  • 300g/10½oz icing sugar
  • 2-3 tbsp water
  • 2-3 drops food colouring of your choice.
  • Any other decorations you might want.

Preheat the oven to 180C/350F and line 2 x 12-hole fairy cake tins (cupcake tins) with paper cases. Cream together your butter and sugar together in a bowl until pale. Beat in the eggs, a little at a time, and stir in the vanilla extract MAKING SURE YOU STIR CLOCKWISE AND ABSOLUTELY NOT THE OTHER WAY IN AROUND UNLESS YOU WANT THE FAE ESCAPING

Fold in the flour using a large metal spoon. Add a little milk until the mixture is a soft dropping consistency and spoon the mixture into the paper cases until they are half full. Bake in the oven for 8-10 minutes, or until golden-brown on top and a skewer inserted into one of the cakes comes out clean. Set aside to cool for 10 minutes, then remove from the tin and cool on a wire rack.

For the icing, sift the icing sugar into a large mixing bowl and stir in enough water to create a smooth mixture. Stir in the food colouring and then drizzle over the cakes, sprinkle with decorations if you have them and set aside until the icing hardens. 

Devour before the fae folk find another way to find you.

ACOWAR Theory

I JUST LOOKED UP THE MEANING OF SURIEL, TO SEE IF IT WAS BASED ON AN ACTUAL FAE CREATURE, LIKE A POOKA OR WHATEVER..BUT..

THE SURIEL IS THE ANGEL OF HEALING, WISDOM AND DEATH. 

Suriel is an angel of healing and is also known as a loving and benevolent angel of death. He was the source of Moses’ incredible knowledge. In recognition of their bond, God sent Suriel to escort Moses’ soul into heaven.

Suriel has power over the primordial elements. He helps to determine and control the position of the fixed stars. When you go out at night, take a moment to look up at the stars. Suriel will help you feel the balance and beauty of the universe and remind you that you are part of that wonderful system of perfection.

Sometimes when he is invoked, he appears in the shape of a great white ox. In the cabala he is named as one of the angles who rule over earth. Suriel is also considered an angel of protection. Suriel can help protect your home and beautify your garden. He will help you feel the presence of love in your life.

His has the ability to manifest anything from nothing. Suriel will show you how to focus your mind so you can harness your own inner creativity. He will help you express your divinity so you can transform any of your limitations into incredible assets. Call upon him often and he will show you how to create a life beyond your wildest imaginings.

YALL REMEMBER THAT THEORY BY @sparkleywonderful ABOUT FEYRE’S PRECOGNITION? OR HOW SHE IS CONSIDERED CREATIVE? OR HOW SHE IS HIGH LADY OF THE NIGHT COURT. OR HOW SHE MANAGES TO CATCH THE SURIEL MUCH EASIER THAN OTHERS? HOW SHE IS THE SAVIOR, THE CURSEBREAKER TO LEAD THE FAE HOME? HOW THE SURIEL GAVE HER SO MUCH KNOWLEDGE? AND NOW IM WORRIED THAT FEYRE WILL DIE AND THE SURIEL WILL HELP HER SOUL PASS INTO HEAVEN. OR HOW THE SURIEL TOLD HER TO STAY WITH THE HIGH LORD, HOW IT WOULD KEEP HER SAFE? AND RIGHT WRONGS? WHAT IF THE SURIEL WORKS WITH OR IS A GUARDIAN OF THE MOTHER?

@propshophannah babe. what are your thoughts

WHAT I AM SAYING IS WHAT IF FEYRE WAS HELPED DO MUCH WAS BECAUSE SHE IS THE REINCARNATION OF THE MOTHER
🌊 Contacting Mermaids 🌊

as some consider mermaids to be a type of fae creature, it is important to note they do not immediately trust humans and it is something to be done with caution. with some research into the lore, here is what i’ve come up with;

what you will need:

🌊 mirrors play a significant part in mermaid lore, so when contacting a mermaid, a mirror is the first thing needed. 

🌊 a shallow bowl of water

🌊 knowledge of / experience with astral traveling

🌊 a pendulum, or other tool of divination. 


procedure:

🌊 know what you want to talk to the mermaid about, and consider first the trust level you need when asking, as somethings are sensitive information. 

  • do you have questions regarding them, or magic?
  • do you wish to work with them on a spell?

🌊 place the mirror in the water, place offerings around the edges of the bowl. 

🌊 engage with the astral plane at least partially.

🌊 take your hand and place it in the water when you invoke the name of a mermaid. remove your hand immediately after. 

🌊 use the pendulum or method of divination to receive their answers. 

🌊 when you are done, place the offerings in the water and let sit. 

🌊 remove the mirror before you pour out the water, try to touch the water minimal amounts when removing. 


respect and safety: 

🌊  like any spiritual or magical creature, you must respect the ones you work with. however, mermaids are also known from lore to be hostile towards humans, particularly the bit with luring away and drowning. 

🌊  after contacting a mermaid, be wary of any music that strikes a chord with you, and approach it carefully, as music is their primary way of luring “sailors” and other humans to their destruction. 

🌊  after first contact, either protect yourself with spells or continue to give offerings to the mermaid, as you have denied them the bounty they were after, – a human to drown. 

Aesthetics : Fantastic creatures - Fairy

Soft moss a downy pillow makes, and green leaves spread a tent,
Where Faerie fold may rest and sleep until their night is spent.
The bluebird sings a lullaby, the firefly gives a light,
The twinkling stars are candles bright, Sleep, Faeries all, Good Night.

A Lazytown idea I think I once wrote about Somewhere: 

You are a watcher. You drift around Lazytown watching things happen but no one can see you and you can’t speak. Sometimes you wonder if you even have a body. 

At first you catch Sportacus looking at you and you think he’s looking at something behind you and just brush it off. But then he starts to spend more time around you when he’s not playing with the kids or saving anyone. At first you think it’s a strange coincidence but then you realise that he was actually looking around for you before picking a spot near you. 

It’s strange but it’s nice. You’re not absolutely sure he can see you but you want to believe he can. So you do. It’s when he tries to talk to you that you really startle. You don’t have a voice. You can’t respond. But he isn’t put off by that. He accepts that you can’t seem to respond and just talks. He talks about what he thinks about things and things that happened during his day.
Idle conversation. 

You like hearing him talk to you and so you start to spend more time around him too. Watching the antics of Robbie and the kids and it’s fun. It’s so much fun. The kids can’t see you but Sportacus told them about you. You think it’s funny when they start talking to the air about their day when you’re obviously over here. But you’re included now and they’re trying. This makes you happy.

Fauns

“I’m a Fawn!“ it cried out in a voice of delight. “And dear me, you’re a human child!” A sudden look of alarm came into its beautiful brown eyes, and in another moment it had darted away at full speed.” -Lewis Carroll, Through the Looking Glass

Must be the Season of the Witch

Signs as Creatures

Aries - Dragon, sleek black dragon with a core of molten lava, rather small in size, with big wide golden eyes, wings are bigger than the body, scales are impenetrable. Rather peaceful creatures, unless disturbed. 

Taurus - Fae, wings that beat as fast as a humming bird. They are transparent yet glint all colors in the right light. They are the fastest known creatures, they have the power to manipulate the earth. Rather aggressive creatures, yet are the embodiment of grace. 

Gemini - Shapeshifter, nobody knows what their real form is unless they say, they can replicate others exactly. They have to power to change their voice and turn into inanimate objects. Tricky creatures. Rather playful, yet manipulating. 

Cancer - Siren, or mermaid, their tails are razor sharp and are beautiful beyond imagination. Their voices are melodic and alluring, often can show a persons desire in order to entrap them. Rather childish, yet underestimated. 

Leo - Nine Tailed Fox, so many different kinds, but these creatures are survivors with many lives, they are magical, and clever. They are charming and quick, mischief is their middle name. Rather Beautiful, yet deadly.

Virgo - Witch, they have ancient books in which they practice, they come from a rare bloodline that dates back hundred and thousands of years. They have immense power but have good judgement. Rather powerful, yet humble. 

Libra - Goddess, these creatures look after the others, they try to maintain order and balance yet they can tip whenever they choose, they are eccentric and unworldly. Rather invisible, yet strong. 

Scorpio -  Otherworldly, these creatures range from ghosts to aliens. They can travel from world to world. They are known to be the most deadly for this reason. They have to power to move creatures into different places. Rather misunderstood, but understanding

Sagittarius - Griffin, guardian with a free spirit, these creatures are one of a kind and are divine creatures. They look scary but are generally good. They protect and hold their ground. Rather unpredictable, yet grounded

Capricorn - Seers, they have bright and intense eyes, but ironically they are blind. They are blind to the immediate world yet can see the beyond. These are insightful creatures, for they can see and predict the future. Rather ominous creature, yet an enigma

Aquarius - Sphinx, these creatures like to speak in riddles and they are relentless. They are ferocious and merciless. They are bringers of chaos and order. Rather emotionless, yet do the right thing

Pisces - Water Sprite, they are dream like in the way they think and in their beauty. The seem childlike and playful but are very wise. They are fluid and wild like the ocean they live in. Rather emotional, yet aggressive.
