you know those photo series that are like “In The Running For The Next Spiderman/Young Han Solo/Bachelor/Prince Eric/Property Brother”
and it’s just like nine generically handsome brunet white men that might all be Henry Cavill or might all be Matt Bomer or might all be the photogenic runner guy from 2012 for all we know but it’s impossible to tell because they are just so generic?
and you know how nobody really remembers what Moist von Lipwig (slash Albert Spangler where applicable) actually looks like, they just remember the gold hat, or the glasses, or the bountiful ear hair?
what I want is an adaptation where Moist, whenever he’s being an anonymous face or The Man in the Golden Suit or Albert Spangler, is played by a series of generically handsome brunet white men who are swapped out shot-to-shot.

We were talking about Jaws in class today and one girl was like “I don’t know about anyone else but I thought the scene between Quint and Hooper [where they’re comparing scars and taking off their clothes and touching each other] was homoerotic” and the prof was like NO, so I was like “actually I thought so too” and explained why and the professor was like “that’s just camaraderie, intimacy, affection not eroticism” as if homoeroticism is only and strictly about overt sexual desire and went on to describe their “bodies weaving together” and I was like wait wtf that’s just gay. But she was adamant like “no that’s incorrect” which was annoying as fuck so congratulations you old bitch im gonna go write multi chapter Quint/Hooper Jaws slash fanfiction You and your thick headed love hating skepticism are responsible
Living in Ireland I heard many stories about the fae.About they’re kind nature, the peaceful woodland spirits, playful tricksters, or even malicious beings.
Here I will give some ways to appease them, and ward them. I will also tell about dangerous fae and how to ward them.
In Ireland children were told to keep away from fairy mounds, fairy circles, certain places in the woods, certain trees, and some strange places. Fairy mounds can be identified as strange lone hills, often found in odd place. Fairy circles are mushroom circles. They are a naturally occurring pattern, however they are believed to be portals the their realm. And stepping in one may be dangerous. Steer clear of certain trees. It is believed that fae live in them, and if disturbed they would not be happy. Notable trees to stay away from include hazel, thorn, alder, and oak. An example of a strange place would be strange rock formations in a field, and that if disturbed or moved would upset the fae who made them.
Farmers didn’t go to their mill or barns at night. It was believed that the fae used the cover of darkness to grind their grain. Disturbing them while they worked could result in you having a failed crop or other curses.
Certain bodies of water were said to be the homes of kelpies, Corrigans, and other water fae. If you came to these waters alone, you could be pulled in, or lured to your deaths (corrigans are said to beautiful creatures that lure you to your death, were they drown you.) They would drown their victims, forcing their spirits to live in the fae realm forever.
Certain flowers such as primroses, were layed on the windowsills and hung over doors. This ensured that he house was kept safe from the fae.
Garlands were made from marsh marigolds. These were placed over the barn doors. This protected the horses from being ridden to death by the fae.
However, the most notable flower to protect yourself against the fae is St. John’s Wort. Wearing this flower provided the wearer protection from fairy magic and tricks. Sometimes my grandmother would scatter petals around the outside of the house, to try to provide protection.
Some said holly berries would repel them. (Unknown why. Unlike the others I was never told this. Maybe someone could clarify.)
A four-leafed clover would allow you to see the fae, even through their glamours, or invisibility. However, this would only work once. An old tradition was to sew them into clothing, or even a little bag (this is to be worn round the neck, though some say it just has to be held) this allowed the user to see them for every clover they had sewn.
Though these are quite nice forms of protection, iron is always the best form of protection. Many believe that iron burns the fairy. Some legends say that the crafted their weapons out of silver and gold because they couldn’t use the iron. If you kept an iron nail in your pocket the fae would be unable to take you to their realm. Often iron knives, sheers, and other sharp object were hung over or near the crib of a baby. This was to prevent the baby from being stolen and swapped with a changling child. ( I don’t recommend doing this as it could be dangerous to the baby.) Sometimes horseshoes, nails, or arrowheads would be placed over doors to stop fae from entering the house or room. An iron ring was worn to protect people, it was told that the fae could not go near the person who wears it.
To be protected from them, and to even form a relationship with the fae; one must respect them, trust them, and leave offerings for them.
Leaving bread and milk out for them was said to protect the household that did it. It was also believed that one may gain their favour by doing this. This is also a notable way of appeasing the cat síth. Not only do they like bread and milk, they also like butter, cream, sugar, ale, honey, whiskey, and I find that they like dark chocolate.
If you’re crossing a body of water, or passing by a well you may drop a piece of silver in, or a coin in for the fae that lives in it.
Ever here the saying that if you spill salt you should throw some over your right shoulder? Well that applies to the fae. If salt is spilled one may throw some over their right shoulder so that the fae can have their share.
Many of the nicer variety were insulted when they saw human mortals lacking in hospitality to one another and treating each other badly. It’s was said that they would punish people like this very harshly. However, if you were kind and honest to people they were said to treat you nicely, or leave you be.
corrigans- A form of water sprite. They appear as beautiful beings who sing melodies like sirens. They mostly appear at night on a full moon. In sunlight they’re glamour goes away and their true ugly form is revealed. stay clear of bodies of water and the woods
Dullahan- The headless horseman. He is seen often in the country riding a dead horse with eyes like fire. He often has a whip made out of a spine. He roams the countryside looking for the dead. If you see him he is said to slash your eyes with his whip. Gold is said to ward them for a while.
Amadan Dubh- VERY DANGEROUS. The trickster fae. He’s a madman. Often seen dancing on lone hills to ghostly music. Cannot be reasoned with. He can place powerful, harmful curses on people. I do not know of any ways to ward him. (Maybe someone can clarify?)
Alp-luarcha- If you think it has crawled in your throats after falling asleep at a stream or other body of water, eat salted food. This will make it thirsty, and make it leave.
Bean sídhe or banshee- The only thing I know of is an iron ring, though when a person is dying nothing can keep her away as she wails.
Cat síth- it loiters around graveyards and open graves to steal the souls of those who have recently died. To try to distract it one may try dancing, singing, or telling riddles. This gives time for the souls of the deceased to pass on so that it cannot get them. I was also told that on Halloween (Samhain) a saucer of milk should be left out, this will provide good luck and protection, while those that didn’t would be cursed. If you are ever filled with a sense of dread and see a black cat with a tuff of white fur walk away slowly and then place a saucer of milk outside, then pray that this will be enough to appease it.
Boggart- It’s a malicious form of fae that takes over houses. Somewhat like a poltergeist. They cannot be reasoned with, and any attempts to appease them will annoy them. They don’t like holy water, crosses, iron, or agrimony. However, sometimes an exorcism is necessary. A family friend had to get this once.
Changling- To stop a child from being swapped keep a close eye on them, put them in a warm well lit room, stitching red thread in baby clothes and blankets was said to prevent them from being swapped, as well as hanging iron sheers or knives over the crib, or having them close by.
I hope this helps. If you have any questions or any clarifications feel free to message me.
Hi there, guys, I’m back. I spent this weekend drawing commisions (not sure if I should post it though) and having some rest so I’m full of energy again. Yep, I’Ill try to give you your daily dose of MEA lol .
I decided to start this week ( yeah, it’s already Monday in my time zone) paying my debts. Several people asked me to draw solo Reyes. The first art is for you. Aaand some anon requested Reyes and Scott getting frisky on the dance floor. The second one is for you. Don’t know if I did it right but at least I tried.
Context: I’m DM-ing a homebrew campaign and the party’s half-elf rogue decided to wander through a forest full of wolves by herself.
Me: As you walk through the forest, you hear rustling on your left and right.
Rogue: I wanna keep going.
Me: O-okay, you take a couple of steps and then two wolves leap out at you from either side.
Rogue: *proceeds to one-shot one of the wolves*
Me: As you slash the wolf it lets out a howl of pain, alerting a nearby dire wolf to your presence.
Rogue OOC: *after taking out the other wolf* I wanna tame the dire wolf!
Me: You want to what now!?
Rogue OOC: I throw a piece of meat at the dire wolf. If I feed it, it’ll like me and we can be friends.
Me: You’d have to roll very high to befriend this guy.
Rogue: *rolls nat 20*
Me: OH COME ON! You know what? Fine! The dire wolf, FOR SOME REASON, decides that you THROWING MEAT AT HIM is a good enough reason to eat it and follow you around for the foreseeable future. But I’m making you train him and feed him three rations a day and if you can’t feed him, he’s gonna try and eat you or your party members.
Rogue: I name him Fluffy.
*the other members of the party were not pleased with the new companion that they had to feed*
Howdy everyone! I’ve decided to do a give/away of stim toys so anyone who needs them might be able to get a few. Please note that a few of these items have been gently used. The winner will be picked randomly. This give/away ends on June 19th, 2017.
♡ 1 tin of Thinking Putty in the color Precious Gems: Ceylon Sapphire (please note that the tin is a bit banged up, but the putty is fine.)
♡ 1 black and green fidget cube
♡ 1 green stretchy string
♡ 1 glitter jar that I will custom make for you. You can choose the
color, size of the jar, and type of glitter.
♡ 3 stimboards of your choice which I will make for you on my stim blog, @mudkipstims.
♡ Not stim related, but as a bonus I will also buy you 1 Pokemon card of your choice from amazon.
♡ You don’t have to follow me, but I’d really appreciate it if you checked out my main blog @octillary and/or my stim blog mentioned earlier.
♡ Please be neurodivergent in some way. I would rather these items go to someone who would use them to help function instead of someone who just uses them as toys. (Note that I have no problem with neurotypicals normalizing stim toys however!)
Have your ask box or PMs open so I can contact you for your address to ship these to. Be 18+ or have parent’s permission to give me your address. I will ship internationally.

♡ Don’t tag as give/away (without the slash) because I’ve heard that can cause problems.
I need help. My mind is a mess and I feel trapped. I think of the future and I don’t want one.
I don’t want a future. I don’t believe in a time after, my now is just too contorted. I feel like I am being held at gun point and instead of appeasing the psychopath, I am taunting him, edging him on, persuading him in my sarcastic, sadistic manor so he can just pull the fucking trigger already. I’ve carved my initials into that bullet and I long for the taste of lead. I am a concept, I am a part of time and the universe, but I am fairly certain that my atoms could combine into something much more useful than this hollow carcass I puppeteer through life. I just want to slash the strings and sink into nothingness. Sink into the unfathomably bottomless darkness that beckons to me in my dreams. I cannot shake the feeling that I was never suppose to exist and now it is time to go home, to cease from this world and never enter another. I was an anomaly, an out-liar, a bump in a supposedly smooth road. I should not be here. I am not a person, I am not a spirit or a soul. I am nothing.
