fire is catching and if we burn you burn with us


“President Snow says he’s sending a message. Well I have one for him. You can torture us and bomb us and burn our districts to the ground, but do you see that?” One of the cameras follows where I point to the planes burning on the roof of a warehouse across from us. “Fire is catching!” I am shouting now, determined he will not miss a word of it, “And if we burn, you burn with us!”

We know you’re scared. We’re scared, too. Terrified, and angry beyond belief. But we cannot back down now. We must continue fighting, harder than we ever did before. You can do this; WE can do this. Show them that we will not let this lie. Turn your fear and your pain into courage and strength and let them know that we will remain standing, even in the face of overwhelming fear.

“You can torture us and bomb us and burn our districts to the ground, but do you see that? Fire is catching! And if we burn, you burn with us!”

Let’s Talk Fire Safety

As witches and pagans, candles are a big part of our culture.  Oftentimes we use candles in a nod to our predecessors that we honor.  However, we often forget they used candles because it’s all they had, and that they were as familiar with safely using them as we are with safely (hopefully) using kitchen knives.

Quick Refresher: 

1. Never ever leave candles/burn bowls unattended especially if you have familiars or kids
2. Put candles inside of glasses, bowls etc, so that if they burn low nothing surrounding the candle catches fire. 
3. If you have Carpet, do your burn bowls outside on the driveway, or in the sink. 
4. If you’re lighting paper strips or anything else on fire, do it in the sink, or on the driveway, or over/by a body of water. 
5. When burning loose incense with charcoal make sure it is on a hot pad, and away from flammable items that floating ash/embers could ignite. 
6. In your alter room or wherever you are burning candles, have a heavy, non-synthetic weave blanket to put out any emergency situation.  If you are working with chemical items like charcoal, oils, etc, water may not do the trick.
7. Be aware of what you are using as a candle holder or candle decor… does it have anything that is flammable on or near the candle (decorative ribbons, herbs, flowers, sticks, paper, etc).  
8.  BEWARE of the most common ritual candles sold in etsy shops and events - the ones with HERBS and FLOWERS in them - the flowers/herbs WILL IGNITE!!
(personally I avoid them, but if you definitely want to burn them, watch them CLOSELY, it only takes a second and the dried herbs are highly flammable)


The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 (2014)

If you think for one second that the Capitol will ever treat us fairly you are lying to yourselves. Because we know who they are and what they do. This is what they do! And we must fight back. I have a message for President Snow. You can torture us and bomb us and burn our districts to the ground. But do you see that? Fire is catching. And if we burn, you burn with us!

New Hope

I can hear strange voices whispering to me
I can hear them trying to influence me
Should I go or should I stay
Should I let them take me away
Away from this wretched land
The land of hatred and distrust
or should I stay where I was born
In this wretched land
To try and make things alright,
To try and save the others while I can.

Hm... Seokmin?

You stared at the giant smile that sat on your boyfriends face with worried eyes. “Seokmin,” you began, but, he cut you off by running his fingers over your cheek, “Y/N-ah, it’s fine..” You sighed heavily and watched as he skillfully removed the marshmallow, from the fork we used to roast it on, and slide it onto a graham cracker with a piece of chocolate. He quickly made another one and managed not to burn anything, this time. Last time, we began freaking out when he set the marshmallow on fire and threw it into a towel causing that to catch on fire. He then spent the next few seconds screaming and running around our kitchen before I threw water on the burning towel and scolded him for running around in front of a fire and destroying a perfectly good towel.
I watched as he ate a toasted marshmallow, some of the gooey texture sticking to his lips. I walked in front of him and kissed the marshmallow off his lips. He placed his hands on my hips and gripped them tightly, kissing me back. My hands found their way around his neck and my body somehow was lifted, so I sat on the counter behind me. Seokmin stood in between my legs, one of his hands moved to cup my face as his lips moved swiftly against mine. We pulled apart to look into each other eyes. His dark brown bangs hung over his half-lidded eyes and his nose pressed against mine. His lips parted and moist from saliva. His cheeks flamed pink and his soft gasping breaths hit my lower lip. He broke out into his award winning smile and he said against my lips, “I love you Y/N..” He pecked my lips down to my neck, kissing my exposed skin. I pulled back and looked into his eyes, “I love you too, Seokmin…”

As Though Fire Burns Under Your Feet (1/2)

A slight twist on the events of “The Rise and Fall of Sue Sylvester.” Kurt and Blaine are just back from their honeymoon when Dalton catches on fire, with Blaine and all his students still inside. Part of my asthma!Blaine verse. TW: Fire, obviously, and some medical talk, but no major character injury (no burns) or death. Title comes from thissong (which is beautiful but so angsty, you’ve been warned). 3.6 K [AO3]

Kurt (3:05 pm): How’s my lovely husband doing today?

Kurt (3:05 pm): God, I’m never going to get tired of saying that.

Kurt (3:06 pm): HUSBANDS, BLAINE. We’re HUSBANDS!

Blaine (3:07 pm): What? This is brand new information ;)

Kurt (3:07 pm): Haha, very funny. Clearly that Netflix binge-watch of Friends was put to good use if you’re still quoting it.

Blaine (3:08 pm): Sadly, it wasn’t possible to have sex for the entire time we were on our honeymoon. We sure did try though…

Kurt (3:09 pm): Hell yeah, we did. I thought we utilized our time pretty well. Speaking of which, I miss you. When are you done?

You can’t baptize us in fictional stories of rebellion and fights for freedom, and then expect us to not get angry when we look around at the world and see injustice everywhere. When people learn that all the talk of liberty and democracy is merely an illusion to conceal hierarchy, plutocracy, and autocracy -- well, we become understandably pissed. Only when the reins of self-determination are turned over to the people can we say with sincerity that we live in a free society built on mutual respect and egalitarian spirit.

Fire is catching. If we burn, you burn with us.
