Alright, I have something that I need to address that I want some opinions on, if I may. With Jonghyun’s Story Op.2 being teasers being released I’ve seen many posts saying “This album is for the gays, no heteros allowed!!”, “Unfollow me if you don’t believe this album is for the gays” (not joking) 

And of course the type of posts that have always been around “Jonghyun is gay he is not straight” etc. and with those there are always the posts of “HE IS NOT. GAY.” 

Fine, this is to be expected. Now I asked for opinions on this so I think it would be appropriate if I gave my own first. As a bisexual(member of the lgbt community yes..) I can’t help but feel VERY uncomfortable by the posts and rants in tags from various blogs that I FOLLOW about Jonghyun’s sexuality. I don’t know if it’s even focussed on him, I feel that a lot of the time it’s just simply the opportunity to take jabs at “the straights”, a phrase I’ve read about 10 times today on various posts about his new album. 
We don’t know, we aren’t OBLIGED to know. As a fans we have no need to know as it shouldn’t change the way we view him as an artist and performer. It makes us look immature and childish. 

Of course every blog is entitled to say whatever they would like. However, just keep in mind that deeming anyone as queer OR straight is so damaging to the individual, with who we only know as an artist and performer. I am positive that as fans we wish only the best for Jonghyun in his album release and in general so I ask that we keep his wellbeing in mind and treat him and each other with respect. 

Writing is Hard, Part 3: Phone Sex

Summary: You and Dean try something in order to write about it.

Read Part 1 Part 2

Warning: Smut, dirty talk

Word Count: 3000ish

A/N: This is all written with love for fan fic. I’m teasing, not putting it down in any way. Hope you enjoy! XOXO

“How many are we up to now?”

The phone rests warm between your ear and shoulder as you glance down at the screen. “Almost four hundred followers,” you tell him. “Not exactly famous yet.”

Dean pauses, and you picture him sprawled out on a motel bed very much like yours, just two states over, glass in hand and flannel shirt crumpled at the foot of the bed, undershirt clinging tight to his chest.

Studying in real life

Hi folks! If you’ve been following along with some of my asks from tonight, you’ve probably noticed some about how the studyblr community isn’t a real representation of studying, or life, in the real world (shoutout to @piratestudy for being able to put this into words better than I ever could.)

sometimes it’s messy notes and skipping class to do work for another, or turning in an assignment late so that you can spend time with you friends. it can be sitting in the back of class scrolling through instagram because you just can’t handle school today. it’s a lot of all nighters and coffee and junk food and less than beautiful study spaces. it’s not always (or maybe even ever) beautiful notes and being totally prepared and having you’re life together all the time. it’s not all avocado toast and calligraphy. and that’s okay.

so let’s get real.

i challenge you guys to post the real side of studying. post the stories about how you overslept and were late for class. post the pictures of your notes before you redo them. post the no-makeup, two am selfies. post your real life, because it’s happening and it may not be perfect but it’s valid and beautiful and the world needs to see it. let’s change the culture from one where people have to ask if the can still be a studyblr if they don’t have certain supplies, to one where people can scroll through their dash and say, “wow! i do that too!” let’s represent those messy times that studyblrs pretend don’t happen. let’s get real. 

to join the movement, tag your posts with #studyblrs get real

OneNote digital bullet journal x planner masterpost

So, before this university year started I realized that Passion Planner and my last year simple and mini bullet-journal don’t meet my requirements, so I needed something new. I love watching others bullet journals and planners, which are colourful and creative, and nice-looking. But I just don’t find it convenient, logical and useful - to spend so much money and time on a notebook (just my opinion, guys, relax). Like…what for?


This way you can save money and spend less time. And you can see it whenever you want. And don’t carry additional weight with you (which, if you’re like me and have lots of heavy stuff with you every day, is a real pro)

I’m using a netbook and usually carry it around with me to work on + I’ve got all books for classes there (and we’ve lots of those), so my choice landed on OneNote app. I think many of you are used to see it only as a note-taking app, for Cornwell’s system for example, but, in fact, it has so many great options to act as a planner or a journal, that I was AMAZED not to find anyone using it this way.

But enough talking, let’s see how it looks in practice!

Here you can see different sections/tabs and pages of a chosen tab. I use them for my everyday needs, like mood diary and recovery challenge; checking my students progresses, tasks and what we’ve learned; the tab for my coursework contains a calendar, research plan, some info and notes; and notebook is for my french philology when I need to work with pdf files and highlight something in the text or write over it. Anyways, the one that interests us is bullet journal.

·         This is how my month of October looks like. I have a small calendar on the top left and the description of important/highlighted dates below it. Then, opposing calendar, there are my monthly goals. In the center there are books I need and want to read, tv series/movies/anime I plan to watch. And a bunch of pics to add the colour. (Pay attention to the to-do squares and keep them in mind, we’ll come back to them later!)

·         This is how first week of October looked like. Pretty simple and minimalistic. I mostly tracked what I need to do on a certain day and some chores. And it was the week when I decided to differentiate symbols.

·         My tags are pretty simple and I don’t always use them all, mostly first 12 (well, I use almost all of them, whatever), but it’s nice knowing I’ll have from what to choose if I ever need to.

·         Then there’s food log for each week. Pretty simple and on a A5 page size. (fasting was due to the loss of the appetite for 4 days because of my depression)

·         And monthly habit tracker. As you can see, I failed the drawing one completely. I may change them from time to time, though sport, self-care (or skin care), planning and water trackers are always with me. I love keeping them colour-coded.

So, this is how I use OneNote. I’m still using my Passion Planner and some phone apps to keep on track. I hope you’ve found this post useful and enjoyed the walkthrough my digital bullet journal. If you decide to create your own, tag me. I’d love to see them!

Happy Accidents (reader x Bucky) [AH pt 10(End)]

Characters: reader x Bucky, Sam, Steve, Nat, Tony, Bruce (mentioned)

Summary: Reader stays home from a mission and Bucky returns with unexpected news that could change your life together forever. 

Warnings: lil angst, mostly fluff. Mentions of illness and possible pregnancy. 

Word Count: 4k. (last part, I needed all the words! )

A/N: Well, this is it!! The last part. It’s been a long time coming and I’m sorry about the wait, but I hope it’s worth it! This series was my baby. Part 1 was my first fic written and posted EVER. Thank you all for sticking around and supporting me and this series! Please let me know what you think! :)

Accidents Happen Series Masterlist 



“There really is no one like you, Y/N. It’s good to be home.”

Now that Bucky was back, the tower felt like home again to you, too.


One Year Later

“I’m going.”

“No, you’re not.”

“Bucky. I feel fine!! I’ve been fine all morning. I am going on this mission.”

Bucky opened his mouth to protest, but your determined expression stopped him, throwing his hands up in surrender.

You smiled victoriously, gathering the last of your gear and tugging the zipper closed on your duffel. The both of you already wore your combat gear, ready to board the Quinjet that was leaving in 10 minutes. Steve had interrupted breakfast saying there was a last minute mission so you and Bucky, along with Bruce, Clint, and Steve were heading out as soon as possible. Steve protested your joining the mission, too, which annoyed you. What was up with that?

One last scan around the room to make sure you had gathered everything, you met Bucky’s eyes.

“You ready, babe?” you asked him.

“Yup. How ‘bout you, doll?”

You paused, holding up one finger before you bolted for the bathroom and lost your breakfast. Aw, crap.

What is Kataang Week?

  • Kataang Week is when we, as a corner of the fandom, celebrate the ship Kataang! The prompts for Kataang Week 2017 were selected through seven rounds of voting over the last several weeks and all prompts were submitted by Tumblr users.

Cool, when is it?

  • Summer Kataang Week 2017 starts on Monday, July 24th - a little over seven weeks from today - and ends on Monday, July 31st..

How do I participate?

  • The most common ways to participate are by creating art or writing a fic and posting it online. Some people try and create something for every day while others only fill one or two prompts.  

But I can’t draw or write!

  • That’s totally fine - there are more ways to participate! You can sing a song, create a graphic, write a poem - just about anything really. You can also show your support by reblogging and liking other people’s contributions.

What are the prompts?

The following will be the running order for Kataang Week 2017:

  1. Smile - Monday July 24th
  2. Best Friends - Tuesday July 25th
  3. Dance - Wednesday July 26th
  4. All-Nighter - Thursday July 27th
  5. Clouds - Friday July 28th
  6. Sleep - Saturday July 29th
  7. Unconditional - Sunday July 30th
  8. Free Day/Crossover/AU Day - Monday July 31st

How should I tag my work?

  • The easiest way for us to find your work so we can reblog it to this blog is by using the tag “kataang week”. Using “kataang” and “kataangtag” also help. You must tag one of the three in your first five tags otherwise it doesn’t appear in the search.
  • Once we’ve reblogged it to this blog we add our own tags (a prompt tag and a user tag) for easy organization.  This means we can find all the work for one prompt or all the work from one user in one easy click (this also means that if you have changed your username since participating last year you need to let us know so we can update your tag!).

Can I post my stuff other places online too?

  • Of course you can!

Seven weeks is a long time away… why are you promoting all this so early?

  • To give people time to create quality content. In the past (and in other fandoms) we have seen ship weeks pop up out of no where with little to no notice and we just don’t think this works. We don’t know about you guys, but we need time to prepare! We also like to post WIP for Kataang Week and encourage everyone else to do so as well - we reblog it here for motivation!

As always, if you have any questions, comments, or concerns, don’t hesitate to send an ask. Good luck, Kataangers, and happy content creating! :)

theoneandonlyzoe  asked:

the depression's hit me with several non-functioning days at the worst part of the sem, any advice?

hi, hello. i know, from experience, that those days are the worst. it’s difficult when you need to do things, but you just can’t function. sometimes you even begin to hate yourself. don’t. during these times, practice self-care.

these are some things i would recommend when you feel the blues™:

  • change your sheets
  • get enough sleep
  • take a hot (or cold) shower
  • do a complete skin care routine
  • make your bed
  • clean up your desk
  • throw away the trash x get your laundry done
  • walk
  • run
  • run some more
  • better yet, take a hike
  • visit museums, look at art
  • buy flowers and put them in your room
  • be silent, clear your mind of any thought
  • unplug from social media
  • draw a self-portrait
  • laugh at memes
  • if you don’t play an instrument, listen to live music
  • sing/lip sync along to any music you want
  • free-write
  • make a list of beautiful things you’ve seen
  • make a list of all the places you’ll go to
  • compliment yourself
  • dress up really nicely
  • watch the sunset
  • go to the sea (you’re 60% water)
  • hold a hand
  • be silly
  • dance until you shatter yourself*

ETA: Get shit done, no matter now little you get done. Self-care is fighting back, one little step at a time.

Hello friends!! So to celebrate 6k+ followers, I promised you all that I would finally get onto doing a bullet journal system post- and a mini-tour of my own bullet journal.

What is the bullet journal system?

The bullet journal system is a planning system designed for rapid logging tasks using ‘bullets’ and 'collections’ to organise your day to day life. It can be used by anyone, for students, for professionals and even for the everyday person. It was designed by Ryder Carroll. I suggest watching the original bullet journal videos before proceeding with your system to get down to basics. 

It can be customized as minimally or as decoratively as you would like- it’s your adaption of the system that matters. Ryder Carroll even stated that “If you look forward to coming back to your book and feel like it’s your ally, then you’re doing it right.” and praised both simple journals and embellished ones too. Each bullet journal system is unique from one another. As long as you are following the skeleton of the original system and enjoying your own journal and achieving your goals- you’re doing everything right. There is no set rules of aesthetics- so whether your bujo is simple or not, as long as you’re enjoying yourself then you’re a-okay!

Do I need x or y skills/stationery to have a successful bullet journal?

No not at all. You don’t need a Leuchtturm1917, a Moleskine, a Rhodia, a Hobonichi or a fancy notebook. A simple notebook would work too. You don’t need fancy pens, fine liners, markers, coloured pencils to pretty up your system too.  You only need a pen. One of my close friends uses her bullet journal with just her pen and a small A6 notebook she found from the local book store. There are no specifications of what size, style or paper you have to have with a bullet journal! You don’t need washi tape to decorate your journal, but if you want to- go for it!

You don’t need to have the most perfect handwriting or fancy lettering skills or drawing skills. Your journal doesn’t need to be artistic if that doesn’t fit into your lifestyle. Some people prefer to have distinguished headers so they can easily scan through a page and find what they need.  Some people don’t have the time to make their pages pretty- to fit into the “studyblr aesthetic”. Some people can’t afford buy fancy stationery and notebooks: and that’s totally fine.

Why the bullet journal system?

It’s not for everyone! And that’s alright. But the reason why the bullet journal system is so popular is because it’s so customizable and can be personalized. People use this for journaling, for tracking every day habits and for writing notes and many other reasons. It’s such a simple system and can be started right now in any notebook you have.

You don’t need fancy notebooks or special supplies to start your bullet journal. You only need a pen and a notebook so you can get started. However, some people don’t like having to create titles for their pages and that’s fine- you can also bullet journal in a planner system too! But you can discontinue it any time you want and go back to regular planning if you wish.

What’s in a bullet journal?

Every bullet journal needs the basics. Every bullet journal should follow at least some elements of this skeleton.

  • An Index - A compiled list of your pages for future reference.
  • A Key - A compilation of your bullets for your system. Bullet points distinguish the difference between a task, it being completed or moved. They also distinguish whether or not it’s an event too.
  • Future Log - A list of future events for the upcoming months; usually for the next three months or for next year.
  • Monthly Log - Where you transfer events from your future log, an overview of the current month’s tasks, events and projects.
  • Daily Log - Daily tasks which are rapidly listed through the day. Notes are usually written under the current day. If a task isn’t finished in one day, it can be easily transferred to the next page using a 'moved task’ bullet.
  • Collections - Collections are lists of whatever you wrote down in your 'notes’ during a week. Books you have read, shows you watched, things you want to collect? Put it in a collection.

There are so many different adaptions of the bullet journal system!

My Adaptation of the Bullet Journal System

My bullet journal has been altered slightly from Ryder Carroll’s and embellished for my personal enjoyment. It’s been tweaked and changed many times and designed for what I need to track! I like to theme my weeks and pages to one colour to keep things simple – sans the colour coding I have for specifics like Work or Uni. It’s simple yet decorative at the same time and it’s perfect for me. I use a Leuchtturm1917 grid notebook, for reference.

This is how I shaped my bullet journal to be mine!

“Anything else you need from me before I head home?” She asked. You could tell she was hopeful.

“Have plans?” You laughed softly, rising from your desk and opening a small filing cabinet near the window. You always kept a spare change of clothes there, you never knew what could happen during the day. You pulled out a more casual pink tank top that would pair perfectly with the white, flower print skirt you were already wearing. “Does this look okay?” You held it up to your chest, almost modeling it for her. “I have a dinner date, with an old friend.”

“Is this friend male?” She wiggled her eyebrows, smiling at you.

This post got me thinking so much about how so many in this fandom view Jensen as only a tool to validate some ship and like to disparage him whenever he does/says something that might not go along with popular opinions of certain shippers. And I’m looking in every direction here. There are lovely people among all shippers, but there are appalling ones everywhere too. But what you ship shouldn’t even matter in this regard. What matters is that Jensen should be able to voice an opinion without hundreds of people trying to find some hidden meaning in it or - even worse - a hidden agenda that stems from internalised misogyny or homophobia. You don’t like what he says? Fine. Does it make him a bad person for having a different opinion than you? No.

People should really learn that respect goes both ways. Personally, I would feel rather distressed by so many strangers putting labels on me and trying to define who I am without even knowing me. I think the same goes for most people, especially if it’s done with such frightening dedication. Don’t tell me that you honestly like Jensen and respect him, when you try to present him as a completely different person than he appears to be and call everything he does that doesn’t fit your view on him “fake” and “hiding his true personality”. Because that actually only shows that you like Jensen for who you want him to be, not the person he is all on his own.

I could have added this to my response to the other post, but I think this applies to so many more instances where Jensen got hated on for daring to do/say something that goes against certain ships or doesn’t fit the way people want to see him. And this needs to stop!

Take that post I linked for example and look at the majority of responses and tags from other people. Look how most of them find all these theories about Jensen at least “interesting” and even more taking it as valid facts (even though the OP did say that it’s her thoughts on the matter only). I know there will always be haters who have absolutely nothing else to do than to dedicate all their free time to hate on other people. I don’t understand it, but I’m under no illusion to change that. But I do hope that if more people who like Jensen for the wonderful man he is will speak up, that maybe there will be more awareness about how wrong this behavior towards Jensen truly is.

Cleaning The Permanent Tag List

Okay, so the permanent tag list has gotten rather long so I’m doing some housecleaning. While it takes a long time to tag everyone, I don’t mind doing it for people who are actually active. I’m just not sure that everyone still is, so I think a purge is in order. Here’s the plan:

  • I’ve tagged everyone on the permanent tag list here. If you’d like to continue getting tagged in my work, I need you to let me know by June 15th. That’s 1 week from today! 
  • You can comment, reblog, PM or send me an ask to let me know you want to stay on the list.
  • Anyone with a strikethrough below can’t be tagged and unless you tell me that you’ve changed your settings I’m going to remove you from the list. (Check that your NSFW setting is OFF and the searchable setting for the blog you want me to tag is ON)

After 6/15 anyone tagged below who hasn’t responded will be removed from the list.

Please know that I’m so grateful that you’ve all spent time reading my stories and contributing feedback! And I’m more than happy to tag you if you’re still here, I just need a little wave so I know that you are. :)

Clothing doesn’t really need to be changed, unless you’re doing a full body thing.

Challenge Time Y’all

Soooo I thought it was time to come up with a new challenge. We got a lot of great artists in and from Denmark. A huge part of them sing in english, so all the artists on this list will be from Denmark and therefor my guess is you won’t have heard the songs before and there in lies a challenge in itself. 

Only these pairings are allowed:

Characters (x readers) you can write for: Dean/Jensen, Sam/Jared, Cas/Misha, Gabe/Rich, Chuck/Rob, Charlie/Felicia 

General fics with focus on any of the above mentioned characters are allowed too!

Ships: Destiel, Deonna, Sam/Rowena, Megstiel, Janeel, Jared/Gen, 

I am limiting to these because I don’t have a lot of time to reading these days and I want all fics to be something I usually seek out - please respect these limits and know it is not hate against any other ships or characters.


1. Pick a song go to this doc:


2. Write the url you will be posting from by the song and your chosen pairing. Yes you have to add both now!

3. I allow 2 people per song - once two people added their name to a song you can no longer chose that one.

4. Sign-Ups run as long as there are songs. 

5. Mess with the doc and you will be banned from this and all future challenges.

6. Write and post your fic before May 31st (plenty of time on this one guys).

7. One song per person is allowed so far. I will let you know it changes. 

8. Tag me @thing-you-do-with-that-thing in the A/N when you post and use the # Kari’s Danish Artists SPN Challenge (long I know - sorry!)

9. If you need an extension or drop out let me know before May 24th or you will be banned from future challenges. Dropping out is cool and so are extensions. Just give me a heads up guys. If you are already banned I will remove you from the doc and send you an ask reminding you. 

10. Smut, Angst, Fluff - any combination as well as AUs are more than welcome. Just use warnings.

11. Word limits: It has to be a one shot so above 1k without the lyrics should you chose to use them. Word max: 6k (give me a change to get through all)

12. It has to be a one shot or a start of a series. You can combine with other challenges. But I prefer if the song inspires the fic in someway. Above it playing on the radio atleast.

List of songs and tags for signal boost are under the cut. Have fun y’all!!

Prompt:  A very awkward Daryl trying to surprise me with something for Valentines Day could possibly end up smutty

Requested by @cherieann-2001

Fluff, Awkward Daryl, (809 words)

Daryl had been pacing along your porch for the past forty five minutes. You hadn’t let him know you’d spotted him, you’d just sat quietly reading your book until you could no longer take the heavy sound of his footfalls or the anticipation that swelled in your chest every time he hovered in front of the door.

Folding down your page and resting your book on the coffee table you decide to take matters into your own hands. He’s so lost in thought that he doesn’t even notice you standing at the open door until you began to speak. “Are you coming in or just wearing down my porch?”

“Huh?” his ears are burning red as he glances your way while trying to take a casual lean on the porch railing and almost falling over it instead.

You bite back your laugh at the way he tries to recover his fall, after all you don’t want him to run away and with the way his eyes are darting about he’s obviously considering it. “Well are you coming in or not?” you say with authority. You’re realising that waiting for Daryl to make all the moves would take you a hundred years and you don’t have the years or the patience.

With a shrug of his shoulders and his eyes firmly fixed on his boots he mumbles, “if thats what ya want…”

He’s hopeless! He might be able to track a wild boar, build a fire with nothing but a stick and shoot a target further than you could spot one but when it comes to taking the big hints you’ve been laying in front of his face ever since you’ve known him he’s like a blind man with his hands tied behind his back.

You turn back into the house smiling to yourself, leaving the door open and praying he follows you inside. He does. He follows you to the kitchen where you place the kettle on the stove, making you both a cup of sweet tea as Daryl fidgets with his fingers and shifts on his stool like he’s taken a seat on an ants nest.

“Are you okay?” you say, sliding his mug of tea in front of him, desperate to know exactly why he’s been hovering outside your house half the morning.

He looks right at you, his blue eyes wary, his adam’s apple bobbing in one hard swallow as he thrust his hand in his pocket rummaging around. For a heartbeat you think he’s going to give the heart of a squirrel or something equally barbaric but what he pulls out is gold, at least it looks gold from what you can see all scrunched up in his fist.

You smile, excited butterflies dancing in your stomach, for you? He’s got something for you?

Daryl clears his throat, “ya said.. Ya know… you like uh… here.” Clumsy fingers thrust your present into your hand and the feel of his skin on yours enough to make your heart skip a beat.

It’s a necklace, a dainty pink butterfly pendant on a chain so fine it’s barely visible against your skin. It’s perfect. A wave of warmth fills you from top to toe as you imagine him seeing this somewhere out in the world and thinking of you, bringing it back for you.

“I love it!” you smile, pulling your hair over you shoulder and fastening it around your neck all the while imagining Daryl having the finesse to do it for you instead. Maybe next time. “What do you think?” you say, elongating your neck.

“You’re real pretty,” he blurts, his ears turning even redder as he panics, knocking his cup of tea all over the counter and scrambling off his stool like he’s going to bolt straight out the door.

You hook your hand around his bicep, with any other man you’d make him do the chasing but with Daryl you do what you’re sure he never will no matter how many signs you give him. You kiss him, right on the lips, your hands sliding behind his neck with a sigh.

Daryl’s hands rest awkwardly on your shoulders, his tongue barely escaping his mouth like he still isn’t sure.

“Relax,” you tell him and it’s now or never. If you want this man then you can’t be subtle so you say it plain, “I want you Daryl. I’ve wanted you for a long time.”

The way he looks at you changes, you can almost see the shyness floating from his eyes like a butterfly on the wind. He doesn’t say anything, he’s not a man of words and you don’t need him to be, he grabs you like you belong to him and kisses you like you’ve been wanting him to. Hard and rough, taking control like you’re the wilderness waiting to be explored.

Thank you for reading!

So I’ve lately been looking at the changes made by the YGO DM ship list blog, and I feel like the GX list could do with a similar overhaul. 10+ years of fandom is great, but the messy side of it isn’t as great, so I think some cleaning up is needed. The old blog, however, isn’t active, so it might be time to do something new.

This would involve making a new ship list blog and doing the following:

- Checking for ships that have absolutely no proof of shipping online and removing them from the list

- Checking if any ships need renaming for any reasons (eg. tag being used) - though I seriously doubt Rivalshipping will be changed!

- Merging together needlessly separate ships (eg. I feel there is no need to have separate ships for some characters and their Society of Light versions)

Everything above would, of course, first be voted on, and I would really like to encourage the whole fandom to get involved. I’d also like to preserve elements of fandom history through this blog and maybe even add a little trivia about the ships’ naming process in fandom history. Maybe it’s a good thing it’s called Rivalshipping and not 10000shipping…

It’s your ship list, so let’s make it a good one!

I’d really like GX fandom’s opinion on this - so please reblog/signal boost if you would want a new ship blog and a fan-driven overhaul!


194- Destiny Bond

Ghost Type: Protection. Any spell cast on you will also effect the person who cast it. Please do not forget that this means any spell cast on you, good or bad. This spell also only works once, so if you want long term use you’re going to have to set it up with different poppets multiple times. (I’m going to be honest, I don’t think this is technically a real protection spell, but I’m not sure what else to tag it as.)

What You’ll Need~

  • A cloth poppet
  • Cotton balls
  • A chunk of iron
  • A small candle (like a birthday cake candle)


  • First acquire or make your poppet from cloth, stuffing it with cotton balls. The cotton balls should be white, as to represent the easy change from an absence of color to having something there. (Kind of an artsy reference. Think of it like this: if you add blue food coloring to white cotton it will change blue. If you add magic to vacancy then new energy will be there, and easily detectable. Just a comparison.)
  • Inside your poppet place a piece of iron. This iron is what will link your poppet to your spell caster, representing their life.
  • When you put the iron in, say “This is your heart, that binds you to that who casts a spell upon me. You are linked with the caster, and their magic will be drawn first to you and then back to them.”
  • Place the candle in the chest of the poppet. DO NOT light it.
  • Once inside the poppet, say “You ignite their magic and make it real to them as it will be to me. Good or bad, they will now journey with me until the spell is lifted, and so the fire dies.”
  • Sew your poppet back up. Done!


  • Placing this poppet isn’t really important. It doesn’t need to be hidden away anywhere. Having it out and about would actually benefit you more, as if the poppet is around you it will be in a more direct path of magic that may affect you.
