idk where i was going with that metaphor

necromancy for ANY occasion!

“What IS necromancy?”

Well, spooky babies, sometimes it’s being so stressed and strung out and ??? by everything that you leave literally everything on your death god’s altar while vaguely saying, “help help help” in the least dignified way possible.

it may help to think this through, or not.

luck spell? sure, why not. like, good luck means that bad luck is over, right? something dies in this equation. there you go! bam, up on the death god altar.

LOVE spell? “help please I would like the dry season to DIE yes thank you.”

productivity? “HELP ME END MY SLOTHFUL WAYS THAT I MAY BE REBORN AS A BEAUTIFUL PRODUCTIVE CREATURE THAT MAKES TO DO LISTS, OH LORD (OF THE CEMETERY.)”

confidence spell? “help help help DEATH to my insecurities, bless, thank you.”

glamour spell??? you could probably make some kind of embalming metaphor here, but like, I probably wouldn’t.

healing boost (while also getting proper medical care)? this one is EASY! death entities are often healers. and by “often” I mean “Baron Samedi but idk probably others it’s late at night i’m doing my best.”

motivation/sticking to a new workout regime? since we’ve established that healing is a necromancy go to, think about healing some more! fast recovery times! greater bodily health! you’ve only got one body so you need to care of it while you can.

wealth? hey, easy peasy! gold comes from the GROUND, where bodies are buried and whatever, so death gods are often $$$ blingin’ in their mythologies. “oh lord of dirt! help me out here with this month’s rent! please and thank!”

basically ANY spell–to get a new thing in your life, usually an old one has to go, and that’s at least a metaphorical death. frequently, to summon a thing is to banish another thing. summon friendship, banish loneliness. summon wealth, banish scarcity. think of the easing of transitions, think of anything liminal and how it echoes the journey of life to death. or think of the preservation of the human body and how things relate to your physical health–”hey, with more money, I’ll buy better food, and that will make me healthier, so this is totally under your umbrella, death god of choice, thanks for helping me in this ritual.”

and of course, you don’t NEED a deity to witchcraft with, so feel free to generalize these ideas however. brb putting fresh chocolate on my altar skulls.

Does it feel weird to anyone else when proisraelis try to treat non-Jewish Palestinians and our critiques as if we’re just some regular gentile, like when they try to say that a palestinian levying complaints about Israel is goysplaining, as if we aren’t talking about our direct oppressor.
Idk it just seems like another way that people that support Israel try to use the Jewish people’s status as minorities and as a persecuted population everywhere in the world except Israel as a way to justify settler colonialism and genocide, like trying to portray themselves as the underdog in a fight where they are the aggressor and also militarily outclass their oppressed population in every way.
Like it’s weird, like an adult going up and smacking a baby and then trying to say they’re the disadvantaged ones cause they too were once a baby, idk probably a bad metaphor but I’m tired.

So like idk but a metaphor for ADHD that I thought of was it’s like having a rocket powered bicycle. So like, it’s technically faster but super hard to steer and going off course or crashing is pretty common. It’s hard to tell where you are, where you’ve been, or where you were going because there’s just so much flying past you. Sure you occasionally end up in really interesting places, but usually you just end up in the wrong place and you have to back track. People with regular bikes see yours as either super cool or extremely obnoxious. The ones who think it’s cool disregard what you say about how difficult it is to go anywhere on this bike, while the ones who are annoyed tell you to just go slower and steer better, even though you try to explain you can’t without using modifications to make steering easier. When you do get those mods they accuse you of giving yourself an unfair advantage or changing the bike into something it’s not. Idk how to close this off but those are my thoughts.

Mericcup Week: Day 06. Embers - Owl City (X)

Yeah you know it gets better and your story is yet to be told
Every push, every shove, every war, every love
Yeah the coals are beginning to glow
So I’m fanning the flames to climb so high ‘cause there’s no other way we can stay alive

“Badlands to me is like this futuristic society, this dystopia in the future where everything is corrupt and it’s a wasteland and it’s kinda chaotic, and it’s metaphoric for a mental state for me. So living in this mental state is like living in the Badlands where you can’t escape. Everyone around is like, ‘Oh, those are the Badlands, we don’t go there.’

actually..i just miss you / andreil (but like with Andrew telling it to Neil) 😊

thank u !!!

five word prompts: “actually… i just miss you.” + andreil

For the sixth time that day, Neil’s phone rang with the obnoxious ringtone Andrew had set when he’d finally upgraded to a newer, touchscreen phone. It wasn’t the same song he had had when Andrew had first bought him a phone, but it was equally as annoying, and no less significant to Neil’s previous life as a runaway. He answered it, putting it onto loudspeaker before setting it on his bedside locker. The apartment was quiet, with Neil living alone since he moved to New York after graduation. He had a cat, granted, but all he did was eat and sleep. Andrew was in California with his team, and the long distance wasn’t Neil’s favourite thing about living so far from him.

“Look who’s calling once again,” It was 10pm in New York, which meant that where Andrew was, it was only 7 in the afternoon. On a Sunday, neither teams had practice, and Andrew had already called him five times since he woke up. “Next time I’m not going to answer.”

“You’ll always answer.” Andrew’s robotic voice, warped by the distance and terrible phone connection, brought a small frown to Neil’s face. He lay down, facing the ceiling. The loud cars below and the hustle and bustle of the city was drowned out by Andrew’s voice. “You wouldn’t want to miss something important.”

AU where Will lives in a house where local legend says it's extremely haunted and psychic Hannibal Lecter goes to check on the bae to see what's exactly wrong with the house but there's nothing going on and Hannibal asks the spirits why and theyre just like "idk hes too creepy even for me man"

‘The spirits are informing me that once one of them tried to rattle a chain outside of your bedroom door and you delved into a twenty minute extended metaphor on the difference of life and death being a rusty chain or something and it, and I quote, ‘kinda brought them down’.’
