important witchy info 9/20/17

an ongoing post on key ideas that everyone should probably know lol. feel free to add on or comment so i can keep adding!


The Basics-

  • cleanse
    • salt, water, singing, music, smoke cleansing, sound, soap, etc
  • ward
    • physically and astrally
  • GROUND
    • bring yourself back to earth after doing anything spiritual

Protection-

  • don’t rely on sigil wards, nuh uh
    • they are , so weak
  • keep up with them at LEAST once a week!!
  • make as many as u can, as creative as u want
  • u NEED more than one ward. layer them up
  • use common sense ppls
  • fire safety is important
  • if you plan on using your own fluids in your craft, make sure u don’t give yourself an infection when trying to get it
    • this is more specifically referring to blood magic

Spirit Work-

  • NOT EVERY SPIRIT IS YOUR FRIEND!!!
  • WARD
    • im so serious unless u want to end up in a horror movie-like situation, WARD.
  • if u feel funny when talking to a spirit ,,, TRUST THAT
    • trust your gut for sure
  • not everything is caused by a spirit
  • STAY IN YOUR LANE,, don’t interact with spirits that are from a closed culture. NUH UH
    • don’t even try the excuse “but they came to meeeeeeee” no, still, stay in your lane and say “no thanks, I’m not apart of ur culture” or something like that and keep it moving
  • if you have a spirit companion and u struggle to communicate with them, DON’T APPLY FOR ANOTHER ONE
    • if i had a dollar for as many times as i’ve come across this issue, i swear id be rich
    • THEYRE NOT COLLECTIBLES

Witchcraft-

  • CHECK THE MUNDANE BEFORE U BLAME THE MAGIC
    • this goes DOUBLY if you are in pain/dizzy/lightheaded/etc
  • i’m serious, check the mundane first. not everything is spiritual,,,i swear
  • give yourself a “magical name.” a nickname that you’ll use when it comes to your craft. it gives u a separation for your mundane self and your witchy self. trust me, it helps
  • RESEARCH any herbs you plan on using
    • some herbs aren’t safe to burn, consume, inhale, etc. do your research
  • research in general is really helpful. do it
  • witchcraft is an enhancer, not a full ride
    • like yes sigils are cool, but u can’t rely on them for jack diddly squat if u aren’t gonna do anything to supplement them 
  • do whatever u want but be respectful to others
    • ex: u don’t have to be religious. u don’t have to be wiccan. u don’t have to follow the “three fold law” or whatever. 
  • don’t cultural appropriate,,,,don’t.
    • i’m serious, don’t.
  • if you use vulture culture in your craft, please please please do your empath witch pals a favor and trigger warn any pictures/content containing bones, whether its your own or reblogged
    • for ppl like me, it really jacks me up when i get a blow to the stomach lmao
  • INTENT!!!

Meditation-

  • find out what method works best for u
  • DONT DO “MINDFULNESS” OR “MINDFUL MEDITATION” IF U DISSOCIATE!!!
  • play some sort of sound that loops in the background
    • gentle rain works for me; for some ppl its nature, classical music, instruments, etc. find something that isn’t distracting
  • meditation doesnt do jack diddly squat if u don’t have a goal in mind. avoid sitting there for 20mins bored. know what you want to do
  • VISUALIZATION IS YOUR FRIEND!! 
    • ex: wanna figure out where your religious path is going? visualize yourself in your religious building and see yourself talking to your deity/your pastor/head religious person. again, don’t just sit there for 20mins, bored. thats a waste of time lol

Crystals-

  • make sure you research whether or not a crystal is toxic or not if you plan on doing elixirs/infusions/anything of the sort where u plan on consuming anything that has come in contact with the crystal
  • u gotta cleanse them, both physically and metaphysically
  • before you cleanse them, make sure the cleaning style is compatible
    • some crystals don’t react well with salt/water, so be careful
  • some crystals fade in the sun
    • research which ones
  • charge your crystals
    • sun, moon, music, intent, etc

Cultural Appropriation-

  • just be respectful for cryin out loud
  • stay away from anything related to indigenous tribes unless u were raised up with one or plan on full out committing to one and being apart of the culture for real
    • this includes “smudging”, dream catchers (made by non indigenous ppls), “spirit animal”, etc
      • alternatives: “smoke cleansing” and “familiar”
  • u could have 60% indigenous blood, but if u aren’t actively apart of the culture, its not yours
    • don’t be disrespectful. u can’t get the benefits if u don’t want to do the work
  • leave ALL closed cultures alone. leave em alone. theyre not for u. there are THOUSANDS of different paths u can take, take one that isn’t formed upon disrespect
  • “third eye” is closed. say “mind’s eye”
  • “chakras” are closed. say “energy points”
  • “g*psy” is a slur. say hippie or boho or something
  • yes its still harmful even if no one knows
    • its still stealing whether ppl catch u or not

this is all i can think of off the top of my head!!! but yes. this is all basic info. nothing controversial or complex or dumb. do whatever u want as long as u respect other ppl, okay?

hey so here are some SU stories that i have recently been really enjoying (or at least the ones i remember rn), feel free to reblog and add your own!

Stranger in Me, by Cyberwraith9 - “An accident bonds Connie to a strange new entity, one who might not have her best interests at heart. With the threat of a mysterious invasion on the horizon, she and the Crystal Gems will have to look for answers and keep the peace as potential disaster arises from within one of their own.” (SFW)

The Harvester, by CZ and VT. - “Follow Hematite, a new Harvester Gem, and the Diamond Authority as they try to learn how to work together.” I don’t really consider this as part of SU, but a story in it’s own right that happens to have gems in it. Contains nonsexual vore and macro/micro. (SFW) Also on hiatus.

Beta series, by BetaQuartz - A series of stories all about the Beta gems. Jasper-centrics, very detailed and fleshes out characters the show hasn’t got to yet. Contains the PTSD, military violence, death you’d expect from exploration of the war. (SFW)

Paragon (and) Champion by Kitsune_Heart - Steven is Pink Diamond - done very, very well. I’ve not seen one taken in this direction before. (SFW)

Back to Beta, by airandangels - Jasperdemption and healing. The best one I’ve read yet. (SFW) 

From Out Beyond Your Star, by AlexRyzlinGold - Not quite the same heaviness as some of the others here, but it is a sweet read! Fresh take on alien perspective of the gems. (SFW)

De Facto, by f0rt1ss1m0 - “Blue Zircon is on death row”. Very good piece on the Zircons - very in character and particularly funny. (SFW)

tips for writing bilingual characters
  • there are different types of bilinguals
    • the All Around: speaks, reads, and writes both languages pretty well
    • the Conversational: one language is stronger than the other; can speak the other language a lot better than they read/write it (a lot of kids of immigrants are this type)
    • the High Schooler: understands what’s being said to them in the other language, can’t really speak it
  • don’t have your characters randomly drop words from their other language mid-sentence around people who don’t speak it lol
    • languages are a mindset thing. like personally if i’m around english-speakers, i’m speaking english and i don’t really switch to my other language (which is portuguese)
    • so like if you’re writing a bilingual character who speaks spanish and have them say something like “hey chad let’s go to the biblioteca” to an english speaker i’ll probably spend 5 minutes laughing and then close your story lmao
  • exception: the character is speaking in their weaker language and forgot a word (”where are the…? uh… llaves…. keys! keys, where are they?”)
  • otherwise really the only time your character should be randomly switching languages mid-sentence is if they’re talking to another bilingual
  • like i don’t speak spanish but i’ve legit never heard a spanish speaker say “ay dios mio” to gringos lmao
  • conversations between two bilingual people can take a few different forms:
    • Pick One: they pick one language and kinda stick with it for the whole conversation (a conversation i might have with my portuguese-speaking mom: ”you okay?” “yeah, i’m good. how’re you?” “i’m fine, but your dad-”)
    • Back-and-Forth: someone says something in one language, the other person replies in the other (”tudo bem?” “yeah, i’m good. how’re you?” “tou bem, mas o seu pai-”)
    • Combo: they speak a combo of the two languages, a popular example being spanglish, though basically every bilingual has their own combo language (”tudo bem?” “sim, tou bem. how’re you?” “i’m fine, mas o seu pai-”)
  • when in doubt: just ask a bilingual to look at your stuff and tell you if anything sounds weird

“We’re fans!” They say, as they look for any reason to make the creators out as racist, sexist, and homophobic.

“We love the show!” They proclaim, as they find the most ridiculous things to complain about.

“We have fun with this show!” They claim, while attempting  to limit other people’s fun in fandom.

“Why do people hate us?” They ask themselves, while avoiding all mirrors.

How to adult on a budget for the lazy and new adulting people (by a not-so-adulty-adult)
  • learn how to cut your own hair. If it’s something easy like an undercut or just trimming your ends every month, you’ll look clean and put together without shelling out $20 every month. (my hair cutting stuff cost like $20 total)
  • if you have to go to a laundromat, make your own detergent. Or just in general. It’s about $15 for everything you’ll need and it’ll make you a solid 6-10 batches depending on how many soap bars you get. 1 bar ivory soap or fels-naptha (ivory works just fine tbh. Cheaper and easier to find) Grate that shit. 1 cup borax and 1 cup washing powder. Mix that shit. 1 tablespoon in the wash. Boom. Add essential oils if you so choose. 
  • On the topic of laundry, throw all your clothes in the same load. Use the cold-cold setting and you can put those red shirts in with your whites with no bleeding whatsoever. (read those tags tho. unless it needs special care, most shirts/pants/socks/underwear can all be thrown together)
  • When money is tight for food, rice, 2 pounds of chicken, some kind of stock or bouillon cubes, and frozen veggies make about 2-3 different meals. 
  • Keep a few bouillon cubes handy tbh. Cook rice in it. Make soup. They’re so much cheaper than stock itself.
  • Coconut oil for everything from actual oil to chapstick to cracked skin. 
  • Baby powder makes a fairly good dry shampoo. Put it on your roots, scrub around, brush out. Boom. 
  • Make scripts for all phone calls you ever have to make to make them go smoother. (bills, doctors, work, etc)
  • Fill 1 side of the sink with water to do your dishes and then rinse with the smallest amount of water possible so you dont end up using a lot of water. 
  • Gasbuddy.com helps you find the cheapest gas near you!
  • Aldi has great cheap groceries
  • If you live alone or with 1 roommate, you don’t really need more than 12 megabyte internet speed. By yourself? Don’t get more than 6 tbh. You won’t need it. 
  • Freeze all meats and veggies! Let’s be honest. You wont be eating carrots every day or that ground beef often enough for it to not go bad, Throw it in the freezer. 
  • Dollar store cleaning supplies save the world. Everything there besides liquid soap is basically just as good. (glass cleaner, bleach, magic erasers, so on and so forth)
  • Dollar stores in general. Most things there will do in a pinch. (earbuds and most electronic/battery powered things are a no-no however)
  • Nail polish remover gets hair dye stains. Hydrogen peroxide gets up blood. Milk for ink. Chalk for oil. 
  • Once you finish using a pot or pan, put hot water in it until you’re ready to clean it. Stuff will just wipe off.
Reasons My Immortal is like the Iliad
  • we only know a little about the author(s)
  • weird time shenanigans
  • Gay/Bi characters (or ones that would be considered as such)
  • lots of weird names
  • both were written during a dark time in their cultures
  • the originals are now lost
  • long and loving descriptions, especially of clothes
  • important aspects are constantly repeated
  • as are some entire sections
  • people are known by multiple names

Every time I come back to this AU, I get reminded of how pure these two are??

I adjusted Mika’s appearance slightly by adding more scales/fins on his body!! Yuu loves wearing his khaki shorts and fave matcha-green hoodie :-)

My favorite things in a fanfiction

• When one sits on the others lap for any non-sexual reason.
• One of them is cooking and the other wraps their arms around their waist.
• Comfort cuddles
• When one of them is insecure and the other refuses to let them think of themselves that way.
When one of them is an angry ball of rage and will only be calm and happy when their s/o is around.
• Band AUs.
Kissing and then being picked up so their legs are wrapped around the others waist.
One of them is a jock and will always give their team jacket to the other.
• 5 + 1 (these depend on the topic).
• Comfort during an anxiety/panic attack.
• Coffeeshop AUs.
• Morning cuddling.
College AUs
Small one wearing tall one’s clothes.
When one of them is asexual and the other one hundred percent respects that and will do anything to make them feel comfortable.
• Sick fics.
• Saying “I love you” without directly saying it.
High school AUs.
• Friends playing matchmaker.
• Falling for the best friends brother/sister
• WHEN NEITHER OF THEM DIE.
• Youtuber AUs.
• One is a cinnamon roll that needs protection and the other is a brutal rebel and if anyone hurts their cinnamon roll they will destroy them (if you’re familar with my posts, you know how much I love this one).
• Meeting the parents and the parents are so accepting of the relationship.
• Friends noticing hickies and embarrassment ensues.
• Jealousy
• Saying their first “I love you”.
• Height difference cuteness where one of them is super short and their s/o will always pick them up to make them eye level.
• When they get locked in and that forces them to confess.
• Sloppy make outs.
When the relationship is already established.
When one of them comes back from a long trip and the other one picks them up from the airport/train station/bus stop and they have a big reunion scene.
When one of them is scared to fall in love but ends up loving the other too much and so when they kiss for the first time they just say “fuck it” and freaking go for it.

• (since I keep seeing people add it and I enjoy it on occasion as well) Fake dating. 

And that’s it so far. I’ll most likely add more to this list later. Feel free to add your own. : )

Also I made this to help out any struggling fanfic writers, hope you like the ideas.

some of the things i've been told since coming out as asexual in 2015

-“you’re too pretty to be asexual”
-“you just haven’t met the right guy yet”
-“you’ll change your mind once you’re in a relationship”
-“if you ever get in a ‘relationship’ your partner will just cheat on you so he can have sex”
-“is there something wrong with you?”
-“it’s just a hormonal thing. doctors can help you fix that”
-“so… you’re gay?”
-“here’s the name of my doctor you should see him about your homone levels”
-“that’s not a real thing”
-“there must be something wrong with you”
-“you’re probably gay but too scared to tell anyone”
-“i can fix that ;)”
-“i called my pastor and he said he’s going to put you on the prayer chain”
-“the bible doesn’t necessarily say that asexuality is wrong, but it’s wrong because it’s an identity thing. you should just identify as a child of God, regardless of whether or not you actually get these feelings”
-“you’re basically just straight”
-“so you’re just gonna be alone forever?”
-“so you’ve never loved anyone?”
-“ohmygosh is this because of your past trauma?!”
-“i’m so sorry, this must be because of all you’ve been through”
-“you don’t look asexual”
-“so you probably masturbate a lot then…”
-“asexuals aren’t part of the lgbtqia community… the A stands for 'ally’. stop pretending like asexuals are descriminated against”
-“isn’t that a plant thing?”
