“Turn on the Light” Spell

A simple spell to find happiness in trying times.

You will need:

  • A lighter
  • A sigil for happiness (x) (x) (x) (x)

Steps:

  1. Prepare yourself for the spell. Ground yourself, create a witchy atmosphere, get yourself in the right mindset, or anything else you do to prepare.
  2. On your lighter, draw your happiness sigil.
  3. Imagine golden light pouring into the lighter, filling it with cheerful, positive energy. Chant:

    “times are dark, all things good seem far away,
    but once this lighter flickers on, happiness is here to stay”


  4. Now, whenever you turn on your lighter, you have ‘turned on a light’ and activated the spell, drawing happiness to you.
The drunk reveal no one asked for and the cracker shenanigans

Marinette looked around the living room, from the music system to the table covered with bowl and bags off what could easily be all the snacks found on the French market. Marinette wasn’t especially in the mood to party, she would have rather stayed at home and finish some designs, especially after the fact that there was an akuma that morning that managed to ruin her sleeping late plans. But Alya insisted, saying there wil be amiliar faces too. And Marinette totally didn’t come because Alya promised Nino is brinign her a certain blond someone who just arrived back to Paris from one year exchange in Milano. Totally not. She was perfectly content with having a friendly conversation with Adrien after only seeing him through Skype for a year. Until he walked in the room. And Marinette finally understood just how low quality the skype camera was.

The current is fighting him. His own lungs are fighting him. His eyes fight, too, stinging, but he keeps them open, gleaning what light he can in the dark water. Later, he will think back and see only seconds of being alone in that darkness. Now, it’s minutes. An endless slow trudge of time as he turns and searches.

He remembers pulling off his flannel, stripping out of his jeans in the freezing night. He remembers kicking off his shoes.
