I Remember

by Anne Sexton

By the first of August
the invisible beetles began
to snore and the grass was
as tough as hemp and was
no color—no more than
the sand was a color and
we had worn our bare feet
bare since the twentieth
of June and there were times
we forgot to wind up your
alarm clock and some nights
we took our gin warm and neat
from old jelly glasses while
the sun blew out of sight
like a red picture hat and
one day I tied my hair back
with a ribbon and you said
that I looked almost like
a puritan lady and what
I remember best is that
the door to your room was
the door to mine.

41 KuroMahi for the fluffy prompts? (Sorry, this one sounds hilarious)

KuroMahi {41: “You found me crying on the kitchen floor in the middle of the night surrounded by a shattered jelly jar.”}


“Mahiru, I’m back! I have the cups. Next time, instead of making me walk, we should ask Hyde to bring some with him.” Kuro said as he entered their apartment. He trailed off when he realized how quiet the room was. He stepped out of the house for only twenty minutes to buy more plastic cups. What could happen in that time?

They were supposed to be making food for a party but the apartment was oddly quiet. He heard soft sniffles and he knew that it was Mahiru. Kuro rushed to the kitchen and found Mahiru sitting on the floor. He was surrounded by broken glass and clumps of jelly. When Mahiru looked up at him, he could see the tears staining his cheeks.

“Are you okay, Mahiru? Did you get cut?” Kuro rushed to clear a path through the glass so neither of them would get hurt. He knelt in front of him and cupped his face. He was glad that he wasn’t bleeding and didn’t seem to be hurt. Gently, he rubbed the tears trailing down his cheeks. That only seemed to make Mahiru cry harder and Kuro spoke softly. “What happened Mahiru?”

“Kuro, I murdered the jelly jar.” Mahiru confessed and no other answer could have confused him more. He sobbed as he went on. “I dropped the poor jar and killed it. I didn’t mean to break it. Do you think he’s going to come back to life and kill me? This is terrible, Kuro!”

“… You’re crying over a broken jar of jelly?” Kuro said and Mahiru burst into sob. He was still confused but he tried to comfort him. He kissed his closed eyes but then he smelt a hint of alcohol on his breath. He pulled away slightly and saw a half empty cup of wine on the counter. Looking at him carefully, he realized that Mahiru’s cheeks were a little flushed and his eyes were unfocused. “Are you drunk?”

“Who’s drunk? Did you sneak wine into the house? Bad kitty, you were supposed to buy cups.” Mahiru giggled as if he hadn’t been sobbing earlier. He leaned into him and snuggled against his chest. “I’ll forgive you. Lily brought some grape juice earlier. It tasted funny. I saved a cup for you. Wait, I think I drank that too. Silly me.”

His words only further confirmed that he was drunk. Kuro sighed and knew that they would have to cancel the party. Mahiru was in no condition to entertain people as he swayed on his lap. He played with his bell and its simple jingle was immensely entertaining to him. He reached up and pressed a finger to Kuro’s lips. “Shhh, I’m calling Kitty Kuro. He’ll protect me from the vengeful jelly spirit.”

“Okay, it’s time for you to go to sleep and sober up.” Kuro said. He didn’t think Mahiru would be able to walk by himself and he was worried about the remaining glass around them. He slipped his arm beneath his body and stood with him in his arms. “You’re really troublesome sometimes, Mahiru.”

“But you always protect me, Kitty Kuro.” Mahiru smiled up at him and rested his head against his shoulder. He placed his hand on his cheek and clumsily pulled his gaze down to him. “You’re a good cat so I’ll tell you a secret. I really like you. You’re warm and kind like the vampire Kuro. I love him. But don’t tell the vampire Kuro that, okay? It’s a secret.”

“We’re dating. How is that a secret?” Kuro shook his head with a wry smile.

“If I say it too often, he’ll get scared and run away. I love him. I want to tell him that every day… every time he smiles… every time he makes my heart skip…” Mahiru wrapped his arms around his neck and whispered into his ear. “Sometimes I wait until he’s asleep and tell him I love him then.”

“How can someone as pure as you exist in this world? Your one secret is that you say, ‘I love you’ while I’m asleep?” Kuro set him on the bed and pulled the blanket over him. He sat next to him and brushed his hair away from his face. “I’ll tell you a secret too. Vampire Kuro loves hearing you say things like that. It’s not going to scare him away so say it as much as you want.”

“Thank you,” Mahiru mumbled as sleep was slowly overcoming him. “Kitty Kuro, can you get vampire Kuro? I want a kiss goodnight.”

Kuro leaned down and gently kissed him. “I love you, Mahiru.”


I already wrote a Drunk!Mahiru fanfic before but I really couldn’t think of any other reason for either of them to cry over a jar of jelly.

I was gonna sleep but then my friend started talking about our upcoming trip to the London Aquarium, and my mind immediately went to this ask. Enjoy some fucking ANGST my dudes


Your eyes light up as you walk under the gently undulating blue light of the arch, turning your head in a slow circle to take in everything around you.

The room is completely black, lit up on by fibre optic lights in the ceiling, and every 4 feet or so are large circular tanks. Jellyfish swim in slow, lazy groups behind them, their odd skirts drifting in the artificial currents. 2D sticks close to the entrance, looking around nervously before pacing in, walking quickly and grabbing your hand as you walk, pressing up against your back.

To outside eyes, he must look like an overly affectionate boyfriend, but you look back at him as you lead him over to the first tank, squeezing his hand reassuringly.

Practical Magic: Witchin’ on a Budget

Help! Josh, I’m looking at all of these witchy supplies, and I can’t afford them! What am I going to do? How can I afford an altar? I’m on a college budget, for Goddess’ sake!

Calm down, love! It’s all going to be alright!

Like hell, it’s alright! I have to pay tuition! I can’t do that if I’m paying for cauldrons and statues! Have you seen the prices on cauldrons lately?!

Breathe. Stop panicking. You don’t have to spend a lot of money to be a witch. In fact, most of us started off with nothing for our altars!

It’s sort of misleading when reading many books available for starting up in witchcraft state that an altar has such and such items on it, or when many spells call for gems, semiprecious and precious stones or metals, or even hard-to-find plants or spices - many of which tend to be exotic or unavailable depending upon the locale of the witch. I’ve read plenty of spells and books that have placed heavy emphasis on having a cauldron (which, I might add, many cast iron cauldrons can run between $10 (American) and $200 (American) depending upon size, quality, and style). And while I’ve been privileged enough to live near several gem and crystal shops, I still see crystals the size of my pinky finger selling for close to $500. It can be a bit disheartening for the new witch. I was there. We all have been.

But I’ve found that it can be a matter of perspective. Either one can perceive the situation as a hindrance, or one can approach it as an opportunity to get crafty! Thus, the crafty witch, the kitchen witch, and the newbie witch all have something in common: the ability to supply herself with all that she needs without spending to pretty a penny.

But how?! I’m not particularly artistic! I don’t even have time to weave a Brigid’s cross!

As a low-budget witch, you don’t even have to be very artistic. Just practical. And with that practicality comes the ability to save time, as well. To get you started, let’s take a look at some supplies that can be appropriated easily for cheap, and then at some other items that can be substituted for others, and of course, at some supplies that can be picked up in dime and dollar stores!

Herbs: Cheap and Easy to Get!

Something that, as a kitchen witch, often bothers me is that there are many books out there that state that you have to use herbs and spices that are fresh or wild, or have to be kept in glass or natural packaging, or have to be organically grown. To all of that, I say bullshit!

As it is, organic herbs are often marked up in price. Glass packaging is also a mark-up in price. Using fresh herbs and spices limits you to a certain time of the year for many of these plants, or renders you incapable of using them at all (shiitake mushrooms have many uses, but are practically impossible to find fresh in my area, so they always are bought dried). Using wild herbs places you in a somewhat dangerous predicament, as any herbalist or botanist would warn of similar yet poisonous or toxic plants that may be found (a great example is the wild fennel that grows on California’s central coast: the seeds are delicious and particularly useful for teas and cooking, but look nearly identical to hemlock seeds, which also grows wild in this area and is extremely toxic). Another risk to wild gathering is that some herbs have a particular period of time in which they’re safe to consume: elderberry is only safe when completely ripe, for instance, limiting harvest time to a few weeks out of the year.

Rather than forcing yourself to go to the nearest Whole Foods or organic market, I would instead say that what you have in your cabinet works just as well! Dried herbs in plastic packaging picked up for ninety cents at the dollar store? Use it! Can only find ground herbs? Use them instead of the whole herb!

If you’re a witch who leans toward gardening, dollar stores often have inexpensive seeds for herbs and veggies! The college witch who wishes to have fresh herbs and plants can easily have a small herb garden on a windowsill. For years, all of my needs for basil - culinary and witchy - were met by the one basil plant I’d been growing, and it always had more leaves to offer!

If you live in an area where a certain herb is difficult to obtain, research substitutions with herbs that have matching correspondences. There’s no way for me to acquire star anise inexpensively where I live. However, if I need to improve a social situation, I can replace anise with an herb like lavender or rose hips.

Rocks, Crystals, and Gems

Herbs and stones are extremely prevalent in magic. For every intent, it seems like there are two or three stones that correspond to it. But it’s not easy on the wallet, nor necessarily practical, to go to a gem shop and buy a chunk of lapis or citrine or amethyst. On top of that, many witches (myself included) will often provide a word of warning, as budget shopping for stones can be misleading. Some stones, such as turquoise, amethyst, citrine, rose quartz, and lepidolite tend to be swapped out with similar stones that have been dyed to match the colors of the real deal, then sold under the different name. Instead of lepidolite, for instance, you may find  yourself buying dyed mica. Instead of amethyst, you could be buying clear or smokey quartz that’s been dyed purple. And more common is finding that your inexpensive turquoise is actually epoxy!

For the sake of budget, I’m the kind of witch who recommends using herbs and spices instead, and building your collection of stones slowly. Many of the stones I use have been gifted to me, and the ones I’ve bought were done so on special occasions. If you’re set on using stones, gear yourself toward clear quartz, which is generally fairly inexpensive and is the jack of all trades in witchcraft.

In addition, there is absolutely nothing wrong with using stones found in your local environment! Work with the stones as intuition guides you. Sometimes, the most powerful magic is derived from local stones. A great example is chert. While common, it is a very hard stone capable of forming sharp edges. It’s rarely seen or used in witchcraft, but can make for a powerful stone for protection, well-being, hexes, and grounding. If you’re a flint knapper, you could even craft an athame from chert!

Cauldrons, Chalices, Athames, And Offering Dishes

I have a beautiful chalice and offering dish that I use in my rites. I’ve also got a cute little cast iron cauldron. But I’d acquired these after a year of saving up. Going out and buying these may be impractical for the newbie budget witch.

Cauldrons are ancient and synonymous with witchcraft, but when you get to the bare bones of what a cauldron is, it’s simply a metal pot. For centuries, if you didn’t have a cauldron, you were in trouble because it was your go-to cooking implement used for everything from boiling water to making soups and stews to even slow roasting meats. Many kitchen witches are aware of the power their pots and pans have. If you have a rite that calls for using a cauldron, you can use a pot or other fire-safe container!

Similarly, a chalice, when bare-bones, is no more than a cup. A glass or cup from your kitchen would work just as well as any brass goblet!

Athames are somewhat tricky depending upon the tradition. For a kitchen witch, your athame could by synonymous with your chefs knife, but for many other traditions, an athame is never used to cut material substances. Your finger works just as well, but if you feel the need to use a knife solely for magical properties, simple knives can be acquired at dollar stores, or you can set aside a knife from your flatware and use it only for magical purposes.

Offering dishes are entirely optional, and not every witch uses them. These can be any simple plate or bowl.

All of these dishes can be bought at dollar stores, thrift stores, or discount markets.

Jars, Bottles, Vials Galore!

This is a fun one! It allows you to get crafty and thrifty at the same time! Jars, bottles, and vials are easily purchased inexpensively at dollar stores and thrift stores, and Amazon has a lot of options for small bottles and vials in bulk for less than $10 (American). But say you want to avoid buying such bottles and jars. Reuse what you gain from grocery shopping!

As someone who likes to spend a lot of time in the kitchen, I come across plenty of herbs in glass jars and bottles. Jellies and preserves are almost always sold in glass jars. Soy sauce and sometimes ketchup are sold in glass bottles. Wine, beer, and some vinegars are available in glass. And keep an eye out for other, less conventional options that might appear in your kitchen! I occasionally buy caviar if it’s on sale and I feel particularly indulgent (and living on the coast, it is easier to obtain inexpensively depending upon the grade). Since the flavor of caviar is best preserved in glass, it’s almost always sold in little glass jars which I then reuse.

Even some condiments are useful! As I work in a restaurant, tabasco sauce bottles are thrown out all the time. I will occasionally “rescue” the little bottles, clean them out and remove the labels, and use them for my witchy projects. If you find yourself at a restaurant and finish off such a bottle, be sure to ask if it is alright for you to take the bottle home with you!

Thrifty and Frugal

Thrift stores, dollar stores, swap meets, and dime stores are your best friend if you’re a budget witch. Much of what I have today is a result of browsing through such stores on days when I’ve been able to set aside fifteen dollars. Candles can always be found in dollar stores, and if you enjoy using spirit candles, saint candles, or seven day candles, you’re guaranteed a good supply of them at dollar stores. Same thing with tea lights, tapers, and even emergency light candles and matches!

Thrift stores are ideal for anything ranging from crystals to small tables for altars, and are perfect for getting that wine glass or set of jars!

Swap meets are a little more pricey, but give you the opportunity to haggle if need be, or to find what you would least expect at a steal (my boyfriend has a Marseilles tarot deck that I was able to get for about $3 - a deck like that could easily go for five times that price).

Just be sure to cleanse anything  you get from thrift stores and swap meets, as you never know what kinds of energy may be attached!

In Conclusion

It’s easy to be overwhelmed at the sheer cost of getting started in witchcraft, but if you know where to look and what to look for, you can cut that cost down significantly and make it easier to supply yourself. And there’s never anything wrong with building up your altar over time. My own altar is the result of nearly a decade of collecting and buying in very small amounts, and much of what’s present on it had been gifted to me by friends and fellow witches.

I even know several witches to delight in creating their own supplies from scratch, carefully crafting the pentacle on their altar or whittling their own god and goddess statues from the wood they had left over from various projects.

Keep an eye out, and you’ll see opportunities left and right! Have fun, and remember that it’s not the quality or origin that matter. It’s the magic within yourself that makes for the most powerful spells!

Blessed Be! )O(

Aquarium Fun and Cringy Puns


Phil giggled to himself as he was trying not to press his face against the glass. All the jelly fish and aquatic animals brought out the kid in him. All he wanted to do was tap on the glass and watch all the reactions of the sea life.

So far, their trip to Singapore has been amazing, but this, this was the highlight. The blue aesthetic was perfect. Dan even got some Instagram worthy photos, which Phil demanded more credit for the photography skills than what Dan actually gave him.

Throughout the whole trip both boys have been met face to face with a fan at every corner. Expect for today that is. There wasn’t many people at the aquarium. Just a few elderly. Which meant Dan and Phil would be able to be slightly closer to one another than usual.

Soon enough Dan joined Phil at the tank and watched the beautiful animals swim around, after a few minutes of silence. Dan began to laugh. Phil raised and eyebrow and looked over at his boyfriend with a confused look on his face,

“What?” Phil chuckled at Dan’s sudden outburst. Dan shook his head and looked down at the ground, his ravishing smile never leaving his face for even a second,

“It’s nothing, I just thought of something really stupid,” Dan smirked, drawing his attention back into the tank, “Whoa Phil look at that Sting Ray! It’s huge!” Phil rolled his eyes, but still looked at the sea life Dan was gawking over,

“Tell me what you were thinking of Dan. You can’t just randomly laugh and not tell me what it was about,” Phil pouted and crossed his arms. Dan sniggered at him, and reached his hand out and put his hand under Phil’s chin. Forcing him to make eye contact.

Dan’s cheeky grin grew wider and he opened his mouth to speak, “Hey, are you aquatic?” Phil tilted his head, confused; as always when Dan was being, well, Dan

“I don’t get it. I’m-”

"Because you’re looking dol-FINE,” The taller boy interrupted.

Phil stepped back from Dan and chuckled, clutching his stomach because of all the laughter, “Oh my god Dan! That was horrible!” Dan held his hands up defensively,

“Hey! You’re the one who demanded to know what I was thinking of,” Phil looked up at Dan and beamed, “I /SEA/ what you mean!” Dan’s face went red and he covered his blush with his hand,

“Please stop Phil-ugh. It’s only funny when I do it,” Phil chuckled a few more times, and just as he was about to walk over to the next exhibit, he heard Dan speak again,

“Well how can I not say anything? You’re OTTER-ly adorable!” Phil stopped in his tracks and smirked, oh how two could play at this game,

“I bet you’re jellyfish of this booty, Howell,” Instead of Dan becoming all soft and embarrassed like Phil hoped for, Dan immediately moved closer and wrapped an arm around Phil’s waist. He leaned in close to his ear and Phil shivered. This was not the reaction the was expecting out of Dan,

“I am; and I’m definitely getting a piece of your booty when we go back to the hotel room,” Dan purred against Phil’s ear, causing he hair on the back of his neck to stand up. Phil gasped and it was his turn to become embarrassed and blush like mad. However Phil had one more trick up his sleeve.

Phil wiggled himself out of Dan’s grasp with a soft giggle, and started walking out of the large room, he would definitely have the final word, “Well until then, I guess you’re just going to have to /octopi/ yourself,” Dan sighed and followed Phil close behind,

“I honestly hate you,”
