Sally’s True Love Spell

Originally posted by untitledqueen

A spell I wrote inspired from the film Practical Magic

This is a fire free spell used to draw in your ideal lover.

This is NOT a spell to make a specific individual fall in love with you.

This spell can also be altered to search for the ideal platonic partner. See the notes section at the end of this post!

Items needed:

- Pick any of the following flower petals and dry them* if you have the time. But fresh petals are also okay. (you don’t need the whole flower just a a couple of petals) You don’t need all of them, I’m just providing as many options as possible:  White Carnation (pure love), Dark Red Carnation (Deep Love),  white Chrysanthemum (truth and loyal love), Red Chrysanthemum (love), Red Rose (deep love), Yellow rose (friendship/ caring), Orange/Coral rose (passion/energy/desire), Lavender Rose (love at first sight),  Tulip (declaration of love/ perfect love) - Any other flower you can think of that symbolizes love + companionship. You don’t need a lot. Maximum 2 petals for each flower of your choosing.

- Hot water (like just barely hot enough for tea. As long as there’s steam, you’re golden)

- water soluble paper (get rice/wafer paper OR look for the brand print-stitch-dissolve in a local craft store. I’ve found it in Michael’s and staples for around $10) IF you can’t fine the paper, just write on your flower petals, provided they are large enough.

- pen(s)/ pencil(s) in any color(s) of your choosing

- mug or bowl

- an open window/ outdoor space

What to do:

- Start boiling your water. Feel free to put it on low heat, this may take some time.

- Take your pen and paper, list the qualities you seek in a love (be they physical or personality related). If you do wish to use a visual element you can print out images/ draw the qualities you seek. There is no need whatsoever to glue items together

- As you write each quality, rip it up from the page so it’s on it’s own strip, place it in your mug/bowl

- when you are finished writing, take your dried petals and crumble them/ tear them up, toss them into the mug/bowl as well

-take the mug/bowl into your hands and speak/whisper this chant

“Lover hear me. Lover know my name. Lover come find me. Lover follow my heart’s flame.“

- put the bowl down, by now your water should be hot. Slowly pour in the hot water, repeating the chant if you wish. Let the steam send your wishes out into the world. Feel free to chant until you no longer see steam/ until the water cools.

- When the bowl/contents have cooled, pour out the mug/bowl. Be sure to wash it when you are done if it’s one you consume from.

Additional Notes: If you’d like, keep a copy of your list should you choose to keep an eye out for your person. Or if you’d like to perform the spell again. Feel free to copy any imagery as well and hold onto it if you wish.

* To press + dry flowers you can either iron the flowers between sheets of parchment paper OR press them under some heavy books (this can take several days. But since it’s petals you’ll probably need a week max.). If you use the iron method, make sure the iron is on the lowest possible setting and there is no water in it. Don’t iron across the paper like you would clothes, just dab for 10-15 seconds in each spot. Let it cool . Maybe go over with the iron 1 more time, you don’t want to scorch/ burn the petals.


PLATONIC PARTNER ALTERATIONS: change the the word “lover“ to “partner“ in the chant. Look for flowers that have friendship/ familial/ unconditional love related meanings such as yellow rose, Jasmine, pear blossom, primrose, yellow chrysanthemum, forget-me-not, blue violets, ect. Obviously make more changes as you see fit <3

Tiny Tiny Cave Walthrough-- ‘How to get Ardent Blossom’

Ok guys, so obviously there are some weird spoilers ahead, so if you don’t want to read any of them, DON’T READ THIS!!

ok, so here we go.

Around 5 pm on 3/18/2015, Kotaku released this article

Basically, it details this SUPER SECRET HIDDEN CHEST that is FULL of secret rare things. All you have to do is jump on a tiny cave in the Emerald Graves.

SO, I really wanted to try this out, mainly because I had not heard anything about that weird tiny cave, and I think the Emerald Graves is my favorite map in the game (it is just so dang gorgeous), and it’s not like I had anything else better to do on a Friday night but jump on a tiny fucking cave.

The tiny cave in question:

look at that cute-ass little sign.

This sweet, weird little cave is found here in the Emerald Graves:

The key to triggering this insane quest is jumping like crazy on the tiny cave.

All hail the purple moose.

I think I jumped around 50-60 times. (Hint: I would make your party hold position right outside of the area, because I kept having Iron Bull all up in my personal space.)

After you jump around 30 times or so, you will start hearing this voice coming from the tiny cave. I was in a fit of frenzy last night, so in my haste, I did not write down what the voice said. However! after you jump on the cave some more, you will get a quest to find 10 Crystal Grace. I already had 7 in my inventory, but I found the remaining pieces in these places: Note: you can ONLY find Crystal Grace in the Hinterlands.

After gathering the Crystal Grace, I went back to the little voice in the cave, and they got REALLY EXCITED! then they started muttering something to the effect of “ Stairs, the stairs, they’ll be there, THEY’LL BE THERE”, and then, nothing.

After this, I briefly tried to think of places with stairs in the game. The first place I thought of was the Giant’s Stairs in the Western Approach. I don’t know if any of you guys have seen the weird tower there, but I thought it would be a good place to look.

After finding nothing here but booze, tiny farmers and cheese (sounds like a fucking party), i decided to consult the internet. After googleing “staircase dragon age” I came across this Reddit thread. APPARENTLY this little egg had been found a little over a month ago, so good research Kotaku, good research.

ANYWAY the best way to find this little spot is to follow this path in Emprise du Lion:

Because if you try to go to Suledin Keep first, you will not be able to get to it.

Anyway, you will have to follow that little path until you find the veil fire. The Area looks like this:

look at how Dorian models so well.

And HERE is the super secret fake snow wall.

All you really need to do is go through, best do it at a bit of a run if you’re nervous.

On the other side of this fake snow wall you will find a staircase, a super long stair case that goes on, and on,and on,and on, and ON.

Eventually, you will get to the bottom.

and you will find the SUPER SECRET CRAZY RARE CHEST! 

and THIS is what will be inside.

a little bit anti climactic, but oh —-

Holyshitwait… is this a MUTHERFUCKING FLOWER CROWN!?

yes.. yes it is.

BLESS

Flower Crown

Pairing:

Hulk x Reader

Summary: It’s spring time and that can only mean one thing… Flower crowns!

Warnings: Just ridiculous fluff and gentle giant Hulk

I do not profess to be any good at fluff, angst is more my comfort zone. But how many angst Hulk fics already exist? Basically I tried and therefore should not be criticised XD

Y/N sat at the table, singing to herself as she weaved together the stems of the various sunflowers she had piled up on the table. Now that it was spring she had seen the most beautiful flowers bloom and she couldn’t contain herself. She loved flowers. She loved the colours, the smells, the varieties. She just loved them!

“You can learn a lot of things from the flowers~ For especially in the month of June~

She took care to cut and prune each stem carefully, she made sure to choose only the best sunflowers. No missing or bent petals. She wanted it to be perfect.

“There’s a wealth of happiness and romance, alllll in the golden afternoooooon~”

She finished weaving the crown and delicately pulled the rings tight, making sure they were connected and tight. She held it up triumphantly and grinned at her work. Now all she had to do was wait until-

“We’re back!” Steve called out as Y/N heard the whoosh of the elevator doors. She stood excitedly, carrying her flower crown as she made her way to the main lounge area. Steve was talking to Tony, no doubt giving him the details of their mission, her attention however landed on Hulk and she smiled.

“Hulk!” She called as she made her way over to him.

He turned towards her, hearing his name and his scowl slightly lightened up when he saw her.

“I made you this!” She proudly held up the sunflower flower crown.

Hulk craned, bowing his head and allowing Y/N to place the crown on his head. The large flowers looked small in comparison to Hulk’s size, that was one of the reason she chose sunflowers! That and they represented happiness and it never hurt to extend that towards a grump like Hulk.

Clint, who was sitting on the couch playing video games, let out a bellowing laugh.

“Pffft did she make one of those dumb flower crowns again!? You know they just die in a week there’s no… point…” Clint trailed off as he suddenly felt a foreboding presence behind him, he paused his game and turned around, gulping as he saw the hulk glare down at him.

“Got a problem?” Hulk said in a low and dangerous voice.

Clint wondered how someone could still be terrifying while wearing a flower crown as a chill ran down his spine.

“No, no! Not me? Pfft no way, I’m actually… JEALOUS! Yeah jealous that she hasn’t made me one. That’s why I… Lashed out.” He glanced over at Y/N and waved at her with a twitching grin. “Sorry Y/N! You know l didn’t mean it!” He laughed nervously while mentally pleading Hulk wouldn’t kill him.

“Good.”

Hulk stalked away and Clint heaved a sigh, leaning into the couch. He made a mental note only to tease Y/N when big green wasn’t around.

OTP Idea #896

Imagine Person A works in a flower shop. One day a customer, Person B, comes in for the first time and A is absolutely smitten. After B has visited the shop multiple times and bought some bouquets, A decides to make B a bouquet saying they like them. Unfortunately, B isn’t very good at figuring out flower messages and thinks the flower message means that A hates B. The next day, B confronts A about this supposed message.
