4th house

The 4th house is a seaside meeting place, a residence where all the most powerful women in your bloodline congregate. Here they come to find you, hold you, and sing you the song you and your mother have been singing for centuries. The golden cord that connects you to the great mother and the ancestors you have inherited royalty from rest here, and you can always visit them in dream, memory, or even when you look into the eyes of your own daughter, mother, or grandmother. This is the sort of love that transcends all galaxies, dimensions of earth, and time. Every part of their spirit makes up a drop of the ocean that resides inside you, a place you can submerge yourself and hear the voice of the mother and soothing wisdom. This is a sisterhood where you can share your greatest fears and dreams, chanting in secret ritual and hidden charms, using the tide as their orchestra, a song bathed in femininity, peace, and maternity. Left unsupervised, fourth house people can be wild, mad with the fragility of the sea and containing eternity, dancing under the wind of the moon, always cherished and held in the highest regard.

Sometimes I wonder how great genes ancestors from Lee dynasty must had:

It’s usually like this. I find out about some new korean actor and I find him so hot and his family name is always Lee. Like..

The Three Daughters of Jon and Sansa

The three daughters of Lady Sansa and Lord Jon – also known as the Fates – broke the boundaries and were essential to the development of a renewed and broken Westeros. While such a legacy is unsurprising with the family they were born into. Their own mother was known as a Mother to the nations and a bringer of peace and their father was a living legend. This is not considering her aunts and uncles. King Bran the Divine, Commander Arya Stark the Bold and of course Daenerys Targaryen, the Breaker of Chains. 


The eldest Isra, also known as Isra the Conqueror and Isra the Wandering Wolf, took after her paternal great aunt and ancestor Aegon the Conqueror himself. However, beyond her conquests, she discovered many formally unknown lands and travelled the seas and lands of places avoided. She is the reason that we have most of the World Map as it is today. 


However, her sudden leave meant that The King of the North had no heir (his own son and heir having died), the crown would, therefore, be passed down to Largertha, known as Dark Heart. It was said by many that she knew the ways of magic and could communicate with the dead. She is the first woman to have held the North solely by her own right. She faced much opposition due to her gender and unusual accession. Her enemies dubbed her as a witch but instead of opposing these rumours, she openly accepted it. This tactic led to many of her enemies being weary of her. This alongside her numerous victories and her apparent lack of mercy made her name synonymous with magic, the supernatural and treachery. 


The last and youngest child Alvatia the Beloved was adored by all. She is the one described to take most after her mother in appearance and temperament. Unlike her sisters, she was not involved in battles or conquest but rather remained a part of the people. She was considered one of the best healers to ever exist, even surpassing her own mother. She was integral to the development of medicine. However, it is her relationship and love for animals that she is most well-known and loved for. It is said that wherever she went, packs of animals followed. The stories that she tamed and befriend the brown bear, one of the most dangerous animals that one could encounter, in her girlhood. Stories and songs of her healing powers and the animals that loved her were spread far and wide and were known by all.

“I was raised with a very very tight connection to my great grandfather, who always made me laugh when I was going through a rough time because I am autistic. When he died, I felt so lonely without him, and the only thing that reminds me of him is the Great Ancestor from Mulan. I watch the scene with him and Mushu on a loop, because it makes it easy to believe my great grandpa is still around, watching me and making jokes”

Takumi: *throws rotten tomato in Leo’s face*

Leo: *looks like Takumi just offended his great ancestors* Y-You… let a perfectly good tomato ROT… just to throw it at me?

Takumi: That’s the idea, yeah.

Leo: *clutches Brynhildr tightly*…The sentence for traitors… is DEATH.

Full Moon Ritual

Adorn the altar or working space with black candles, any icons, and two candles specifically to represent Hekate and the Witch Ancestors. Light the black candles and begin burning incense for Hekate. I use charcoal discs with an incense made of Copal, Benzoin, Frankincense, and Dragon’s Blood, but you could just as effectively use stick incense. Light Hekate’s candle and say: 

“Oh great Hekate, you who crowns the sky tonight with your silver orb, I invoke thee. Come receive these offerings which I place before thee. You who rises and sets with the night, lunar queen, infernal host of things unseen, be present at my rites which I perform in your honor." 

 Light the candle for the Witch Ancestors and burn the same incense for them. Then say: 

 "Oh great Witch Ancestors, mighty dead, I invoke thee. You who are the dead which I honor above all others, come and receive these offerings which I place before thee. Oh departed shades of witches passed, be present at my rites which I perform in your honor.”

In a bowl, mix warm milk sprinkled with cinnamon, honey, wine, and water. Cut or prick your finger and mix blood into the mixture. Say: 

 "Hekate, Witch Ancestors, I give to you my life blood to show my devotion and honor. Take of my body as I take part in thy power. Receive my essence and look upon me with favor.“ 

Hold the bowl to the moon/sky and say: 

 "Oh great celestial gem, to your majesty I present these offerings." 

 Place the bowl on the ground and say: 

"Oh great Witch Ancestors, to your ancient powers I present these offerings.”

 Continue by saying: 

“Oh Hekate, you who are the moon, it is by you and your glowing presence that all my witchcraft may be worked. In the light of your torch which fly across the sky at night my art is performed. I present to thee these offerings for your consent and blessings upon my spells and rites. Celestial being which I honor above all others, I supplicate thee." 

"Oh Witch Ancestors, who on this night, like witches in life, are at their strongest, it is by your guidance and inspiration that my ancient craft is performed. I present you with these offerings to please you and ask for your continued aid, guidance, and companionship in my craft. Spirits who I honor above all others, I supplicate thee." 

"Hekate, Witch Ancestors, look upon your devoted follower with favor and give to me your blessings on this night. So be it." 

Pour the mixture directly onto the ground so it may be absorbed into the earth. The rite is done.

To the ancient past, I raise my voice.
To the ancient past, I cry.

Kingdom Animalia,
Phylum Chordata,
Class Chondrichthyes,  
Genus Carcharocles,
Species Megalodon.

To great Ancestor Megalodon,
the Swallower of Whales,  
Mighty-Jaw and Great-of-Tooth, I call.
Show your teeth this night, and with them tear asunder the wicked man.
Show your teeth to him, and to those who are like him.

Kingdom Animalia
Phylum Chordata
Class Osteichthyes
Genus Tiktaalik
Species Roseae

To gentle Ancestor Tiktaalik,
the Fish-Who-Walked,
Great Traveler and Pioneer, I call.
Walk with my country, my people, tonight.
Walk beside us through this darkness, walk with us towards the light.

Kingdom Animalia
Phylum Chordata
Class Mammalia
Genus Juramaia
Species Sinensis

To nurturing Ancestor Juramaia, 
the Placental Mother,
She of the Womb and Umbilical Cord, I call.
Hold us close this night, and shelter us as you shelter your growing offspring.
Hold our hands as we strain with the birth-pains of change, and let our suffering be worth it in the end.

To the spirits of my most ancient ancestors, I cry.
To the spirits of the Fossilized, I lift up my voice.
Protect us, guide us, nurture us.

This is my prayer. This is my plea.
Spirits of the ancient past, be with me tonight.

Actual conversation between me and Ancestor Megalodon
  • Me: Great Ancestor Megalodon, I need to ask you for help today.
  • Megalodon: Teeth.
  • Me: Yes, I need your teeth. I'm meeting with my boss to discuss the possibility of promotion to part-time.
  • Megalodon: Teeth. Bite.
  • Me: Yes. I'm up against a strong competitor for the position and he looks better on paper than I do.
  • Megalodon: Use your teeth. Show your teeth. Bite.
  • Me: Yes, I need to show her that I'm passionate enough and can handle the increased responsibility. Or are you telling me that I should show my teeth as in, smile more?
  • Megalodon: Teeth.
  • Me: Okay, I think I get it. Will you help me do this?
  • Megalodon: Sharks.
  • Me: I haven't really been in a position to talk about shark conservation today, I'm sorry. I've talked a lot about conservation of other marine animals, though.
  • Megalodon: Sharks. Teeth.
  • Me: I'll look up some more stuff about shark conservation when I have computer time today? That's as good as I can give you.
  • Megalodon: Sharks.
  • Me: Okay, it's a deal. Thank you, Great Ancestor.
  • Megalodon: Teeth.

with all the plot points like:

  • min hyuk possibly using bong soon as basis for xena, a video game character of his company
  • bong soon’s great ancestor warning them with strength not beating a knife
  • min hyuk confessing guk doo’s feelings for bong soon and taking a step back (quite literally)
  • the kidnapper’s interest in do bong soon

worst case scenario would be do bong soon being killed off in the end, with min hyuk possibly not being able to be with her and would dedicate an entirely new video game just for his muse :(
