“what is love? how did you know you were in love with him?”

“i guess i knew i was in love with him when his bad days became my bad days. when his good days became my good days. i don’t know, i never met anyone like him before. i guess i knew i was in love when i wish it would storm so i could see him become excited about something he loved. so i could see him smile. i guess i knew i was in love with him when the thought of him leaving scared the hell out of me. i guess i knew i was in love with him when i would roll over to the other side of the bed and reach for a hand that wasn’t there anymore. i guess i knew i was in love with him when losing him felt like losing a friend, best friend and boyfriend all in one. i guess i knew i was in love with him when i use to dread the morning but somehow wanted to wake up to it everyday. i guess i knew i was in love with him when my days suddenly became more quiet. i guess i knew i was in love with him when the thought of him never left my mind even though it’s been a year. i guess i knew i was in love with him when i wasn’t the best version of myself the way i was with him. he made me feel like i knew what love was. he made me feel like i was worthy of a type of love they talk about in movies and fairytales. the closest thing we have to magic is love and with him.. magic was our love. magic was us. magic was him. it’s always going to be him.”

Ileana Cosânzeana aesthetic

Ileana Cosânzeana is a figure in Romanian mythology. This mythological personage is represented as a beautiful good-natured princess. In Romanian folklore, Ileana is the original concept of feminine beauty, the most beautiful amongst the fairies: her eyes look like the sun, her body is like the sea and her garments are made of flowers. Pearls and gold flow out of her mouth when she sings. She is also said to use her power of white magic to heal or revive. Ileana Cosânzeana signifies the most poetic imagination of Romanian genius. She personifies the beauty, the youth, and the angelic soul, in one word the perfection of humanity. She is a mythical character with supernatural powers and with symbolic features. 

In some tales she is a warrior, the amazonian type, with the independent spirit and military virtues of the amazons, but without their contempt for men, riding a horse which is also her best friend. Ileana Cosânzeana succeeds in defeating the evil forces only because she is very brave, smart, modest and diligent. In some tales “Ileana Cosânzeana” is the fairy of the Spring flowers, who gives each flower its perfume, although she also has the power to take it back. The elves love her, as do the flowers; even the wind loves Ileana, but he can never catch her.

Altar Tips
  1. You don’t have to get a definitive altar- You can set up an altar only when you need one. You can keep your things in a box.
  2. Wardrobe altar- You can set up your altar in your wardrobe, in case you don’t have space or you are not allowed to have an altar in another place
  3. Bathroom altar- This is also for the case you don’t have liberty to have it somewhere else and you need privacy. This is good for non-definitive altars.
  4. Travel altar/ mini altar- You can create your own version of your altar for travelling, by making it with natural things and in a smaller proportion to fit your bag or you can buy one. There are some cute mini altars available on internet.
  5. Outdoor altar- This one is good for connecting better with nature. Also it’s a good way to the non- definitive altar, because obviously if you leave your things outside someone might take it or the wind and the rain might destroy it.
  6. Kitchen Altar- if you are a kitchen witch, you can set up an altar in your kitchen. It can be with the tools and the position as you wish or you can go the some other traditional set up. 
  7. Garden- If you are into gardening and herbs you can create your whole garden in positions and add tools that represent that place as a sort of sacred/ altar place to perform your magic. Or you can get a recipient and create a mini version of it. The set up and the tools can be as you feel it’s correct for your work. 
  8. Wicca altar- This is the “traditional” set up, that you will find in most wiccan books:

      9. Other types:

immajustkeepsleeping  asked:

Yoooo, because I always wanted to see more of him in the books, what are your head canons on Charlie Weasley??

huh, let’s see

  • him and hagrid were the best buds during charlie’s hogwarts years, charlie probably used to hang out at hagrid’s hut quite often, just like the golden trio years later after him
  • percy calls him “an outdoor type” at some point in the books which gave me a mental image of charlie barely spending any time at home and instead exploring the wilds surrounding their village, looking for all kind of creatures, magical and not, keeping a little journal of his researches, interesting herbs and flowers pressed between the pages, doodles scattered across the notes
  • not perfectly fluent in romanian, but still can speak it
  • like twice a month gets owls from oliver wood who keeps begging him to ditch his sodding dragons and join professional quidditch (wood’s team, obviously)
  • he was in the same year as tonks at hogwarts, so naturally i imagine them being friends during their school years; tonks was probably the first one to join him in any secret shenanigans (like sneaking into the forbidden forest when charlie became obsessed with an idea to confirm rumours about an acromantula colony being established there. they were shortly caught by hagrid though)
  • i really like the idea of him and harry hanging out together, maybe it’s because they’re both among my favs and i always want my favourite characters to hang out with each other. anyway, there’s this one scenario i enjoy, where harry sets off to travel for a bit after the war to take a break from everything and to see what wizarding communities in other countries are like. at that point of his travels where he starts to miss familiar faces, he visits charlie. they get to know each other better, bond over their fascination for dragons and quidditch and after a while charlie becomes the third closest weasley to him (after ron and ginny, obviously) 
  • i also wonder if the place in romania where he went to study dragons is something like an alma mater for draconologists from all over the world. like, if you want to study dragons, that’s where you go. if so, then i like to imagine it’s a very interesting multinational and multilingual community there 

What is a magic system?

When writing speculative fiction, one of the writer’s most important jobs is to establish the new rules for their world. In many branches of speculative fiction, especially fantasy and even horror, this is magic, though it can also be technology and alternate scientific rules for science fiction. Whatever alternate fact(s) or reality you utilize to make your fictional world possible, that qualifies as a “magic system.” Your magic system is most often defined by what it can’t do rather than by what it can.

Why do I need a magic system?

When writing speculative fiction, it’s usually assumed that something about your world is different than ours. That can be a small tweak or it can be a complete dismantle-and-reassembly of physics as we understand it. Whatever system you choose to implement, it needs to have internally consistent rules. If, throughout the course of your book, magics begin to contradict each other, then it will disturb your readers suspension of disbelief. You don’t want your awesome magic to yank your readers from the believability of the story. But…most important of all…you have to establish some sort of rules and limits in order to prevent yourself from pulling a deus ex machina. No one likes a poorly executed deus ex machina. Few people like a well executed one (is there such a thing?). If you have rules, limits, cost, built into the magic or technology of your world, then you establish something that is not only nuanced and interesting, but believable.

But…but…it’s magic!!!

Why write speculative fiction if I have to create and follow all of these tedious rules?! The real world has rules enough.

It’s true. But following your own rules and following real worlds aren’t the same thing. Lots of you have probably heard the little saying, “Give your world a Flux Capacitor.” If you think about it, Back to the Future’s Flux Capacitor doesn’t make a lot of sense. It’s not explained. But we accept it because it’s magic. And when Doc says, “Here’s this thing. It makes time travel possible.” We accept it because it’s a simple alteration. He doesn’t try to use it to do more than what is initially established. It never breaks that rule. It’s not used to get Marty out of an impossible situation, defying any previous understanding of the technology. That’s why it works.

So where you do start?

First, you need to probably choose what type of magic you will use. Will be elements based? Or energy based? Spirit? Physical? Time and Space? What things is your magic summoning/manipulating/drawing from?

Now you’ll want to focus on the parts that make your magic yours. Sure, elemental magic has been used half a zillion times, but it can still be interesting if you do something new with it. The best way to do something new is to alter its limits, change the cost, give it a new spin that makes your regular ol’ fire magic something intriguing.

You can do a little bit of research into ancient forms of magic, into other literary uses of magic. See what those before you have done and use it as an inspiration.

If you’re having trouble knowing where to start, I’m here to provide you some thoughts concerning the skeletal-assembly of your magic system! Use these prompts as you see fit!

What does magic use/alter/manipulate?

  • visible energies
  • gravity
  • laws of physics
  • light
  • thought
  • water, only, in all of its forms
  • fabric of space
  • elementary particles
  • items of specific color or texture
  • perception
  • plant life
  • the dead
  • blood
  • magnetic forces
  • demons
  • vibrations
  • earth
  • emotions

Who possesses magic?

  • scholars
  • children
  • random lucky people
  • anyone
  • everyone
  • the elderly
  • anyone who’s ever petted a dog
  • specific animals
  • deities

How is it acquired?

  • at birth
  • intense study and training
  • gifted
  • through random action
  • through a ritual
  • as one ages
  • stolen

From where is power drawn?

  • internal mana
  • heat energy
  • alignment of the stars
  • physical contact with _____ (the earth, another life force, a drawing or rune)
  • kinetic or potential energy
  • the moon(s)
  • other realms
  • movement of tectonic plates
  • spiritual energy of those nearby
  • consumption of specific foods/drinks/elements

anonymous asked:

I often have ideas for a scene or a character but there is no plot. How can I expand these ideas into stories? I just don't know what to do with my ideas to get a story out of them. Most plotting tips require that I know at least the beginning and the end of my story. But I don't even have that.

Hi Anonymous,

I’ve heard of other writers having this same problem, so you are not alone! Here are some ideas that come to mind when I think about this.

Coming up with a Plot (from scratch)

First off, you have ideas for characters or scenes, and that’s a starting point, and you probably (I’m assuming, because it wasn’t that long ago) saw my post, What to Outline When Starting a Story, which can give some guidance on what to consider. However, if you have no idea where to even come up with a concept for your plot that post can only be so much help.

Conflict out of Story Elements

Since you have some ideas about character and scene, I’d try building off that. In some cases, you might need to flesh those out a bit more to continue (I don’t know, since I don’t know how much you have those figured out).New York Times best-selling author David Farland points out in his book Million Dollar Outlines that characters grow out of their setting. We are all influenced by our setting–where we live, where we spend our time, what century we’re part of, etc.

Setting –> Character

Farland goes on to say that out of character (and setting) comes conflict:

Setting + Character –> Conflict

Plot obviously comes from some sort of conflict, the character reacting to and trying to solve that conflict or conflicts. But let’s finish out the diagram/equation.

Setting –> Character –> Conflict –> Theme

How conflicts are dealt with in the story create the theme.

It should be noted though that this diagram may not be helpful to everyone, and it’s also possible to work backwards from it. For example, I personally don’t like the idea of starting with the setting–although, realistically, pretty much all stories start there, if only to the most basic degrees (time period, real world vs. fantasy world, Earth vs. space, etc.). I often like to start with character. But as you work on your character, at some point, you are going to be looking back at what kind of life he grew out of and where he came from, and where he is now. Other people may like to start with conflict, and work back into character and setting. So, it doesn’t have to be linear.

But let’s look at the conflict part. You need some form of conflict to have plot. As I mentioned a few weeks ago in my post Are Your Conflicts Significant? the conflict should either be broad (far-reaching) or personal to the character. If it’s not either, it’s probably not that significant. However, it should be noted that you can make almost any conflict broad, or personal.

But how do you even get to that point? If you like Farland’s diagram, what I would suggest would be looking at those characters and setting. Brainstorm conflicts by asking yourself questions.

  • What conflict can come out of this setting?

For example, in some stories, major conflicts come straight out of the setting. Most if not all dystopians, like The Hunger Games fall into this category. You can even look at movies like Interstellar, which deals largely with space travel. The major conflict came out of a setting (Earth will soon be inhabitable). In a fantasy story, conflicts can come out of the world and worldbuilding (setting), whether it’s the magic system or the world itself. In Lord of the Rings, the major conflicts often come from the setting (Frodo has to make it to Mount Doom) and magic (the One Ring is a magical object that must be destroyed). In historical fiction, it can come out of setting–what are some of the conflicts the world was dealing with during WWII?

But what about something more small-scale than Panem, outer space, and Middle-earth? Setting can play a role there too. What kind of conflicts can come out of attending high school in 2017? What conflicts might be present there? What conflicts might come out of trying to start a career as a woman centuries ago? The story doesn’t have to be epic for this sort of brainstorming to work.

Les Miserableis a good example of how setting can play into conflicts, whether it’s being a struggling young mother, a convict, or participating in politics.

  • What conflict can come out of this character?

Once you have your character, you can try brainstorming conflicts for her. Now, there are sort of two ways to approach this.

One, you look at your character–her personality, strengths, weaknesses–and ask yourself, what would this character want? Figuring out what your character wants is often vital to a good story. In some stories, it can be more simple, basic, or straightforward. Maybe your character just wants money. In other cases, it might be bigger. Maybe your character wants to defeat an evil ruler. It can be somewhat philosophical. Maybe your character dreams of ridding the universe of a false god, like in His Dark Materials.

When you know what your character wants, you can start brainstorming conflicts by considering what could stop her from getting what she wants. In Lord of the Rings, Frodo volunteers to destroy the Ring, but there are literal obstacles in his way. Space, for one thing. He has to travel for miles and miles and miles. Then there are other people and creatures: orcs, Shelob, Sauron, even his own companions–these people are in conflict with him. He has to deal with getting hurt, wounded, and fatigued. All these things are keeping Frodo from his goal. And of course, his ultimate want is to return to the Shire, but he has to destroy the Ring first.

If your character wants to be in a relationship with someone, there are obstacles too. Maybe the love interest doesn’t know he exists. Maybe there is a family feud, like in Romeo and Juliet. Maybe there is a love triangle. Whatever your character wants, you start brainstorming what could keep him from getting it.

A second approach to brainstorming conflicts with character is to look at your character and consider what kind of situations would be difficult for them, what would make them grow. In some cases, they might be the reluctant hero. Love him or hate him, as I mentioned a few weeks ago, Edward Cullen is a good example of this sort of thing. He’s a “vegetarian” vampire living his life, and then out of nowhere, a girl shows up that is basically his personal brand of cocaine. How is he supposed to deal with this? Worse. He has feelings for her. Immediately, Edward is in conflict.

Now, you can combine both methods. And in reality, both those examples have both. Sure, Frodo volunteered to take the Ring, but he was basically the only person who could. But look at him. He’s just a humble hobbit. He doesn’t do magic, he doesn’t know warfare, and he knows very little about the world. But he’s thrown into a situation where those characteristics will be tested. Similarly, Edward is thrown into a situation, but he ends up having wants too. He wants to be in a relationship with Bella. But the fact he is a vampire and she has potent blood is a conflict that impedes that.

So you can brainstorm conflicts from setting and character.

Plot out of Conflict Types

Let’s look at this another way.

There are five types of conflict.

I love how subversive of fantasy tropes Carry On is. Agatha gives up magic because it just doesn’t make her feel good inside??? like, can you imagine a harry potter character giving up magic??? and she isn’t the prize anyone wins at the end?? she just lives her fucking life???

the chosen one SUCKS at being chosen??? gives up the thing that makes him special? because it just seems like the right thing to do??? 

the white “old man” mentor type who’s going to bring peace and equality?? turns out to be the bad guy?? but is still complex and not just evil TM?

smart best girl friend is not a mary sue???

arch-nemesis doesn’t die or suffer for redemption??? everyone just loves him??? and everything’s ok??? 

badass peace loving lady dies defending everyone?? 

main actually receives mental health care???? 

gay BOYS KISSING??? NEITHER OF THEM HAS TO DIE??? THEY END UP TOGETHER?!!!?? i just…

For all of you who are into crystals and their power and stuff, a quartz watch is basically the best talisman ever.

Quartz clocks are a type of clock regulated by a piece of quartz that resonates naturally. Basically, deep within all that electronics, all the man-made stuff which is pretty cool and smart and all that, there is a tiny piece of natural crystal, a minuscule seed of earth itself, doing what it naturally does, obeying the natural laws. And this results in far, far more precise measurements than anything man made which does not have this crystal heart.

Plus, watches can be really pretty.

reasons to watch the bold type

(i know this has been done before, but seriously…)

  • the three main characters are young women — best friends who work at a magazine called scarlet 
  • main character #1 — kat edison: black girl magic, confident af, spontaneous af, takes nobody’s crap. she literally took pictures of guys’ nipples (with permission ofc) and posted them on twitter as a sassy response to their shitty ‘no nipple’ policy. also, she’s questioning her sexuality.
    - memorable quote: “i’m going to destroy the patriarchy.”
  • main character #2 — sutton brady: supportive bean (!!!), ambitious and stubborn and she knows her worth, demands respect and to be treated fairly when she works. 
    - memorable quote: “i can screw whoever i want!” 
  • main character #3 — jane sloan: she’s more reserved than the other two, but kicks ass nonetheless. she’s wrote articles on gender-neutral fashion, not having had an orgasm and sexual assault. 

also: 

  • adena el-amin: proud muslim lesbian, literally a precious sunflower and activist. 
  • jacqueline carlyle: the main characters’ boss who crushes the ‘mean female boss’ stereotype, because she genuinely cares about her employees and gives them valuable advice. she shows that a woman can be strong and kind at the same time. 
  • basically, there are so many well-rounded and amazing female characters on this show 
  • DID I MENTION THE INTERRACIAL, BEAUTIFUL WLW SHIP??? (that is also written realistically, might i add.)
  • THERE ARE SO MANY HILARIOUS MOMENTS. and a lot of them are some that many people would find relatable in some way.
  • A+ acting 
  • the show covers countless important issues, such as: breast cancer, islamophobia, sexual assault, sexism etc.

Good Luck Jar Spell

🌌gather:
🍀 a little jar
🍀 gold glitter (represents fortune)
🍀 cinnamon (good luck, fast action)
🍀 allspice (luck)
🍀 four leaf clovers (the more the merrier!)
🍀 ginger (power, success)
🍀 tumeric (luck)
🍀 coffee (stimulant)
🍀 optional: sigils for luck and fortune


As you add the ingredients to the jar, focus on what each ingredient is there for. Visualize each ingredient adding a little luck to the bottle and visualize yourself being fortunate. I like to play music to help raise and direct the energy (a good one for this would be Best Day of My Life by American Authors).

Once it is all in the jar, really focus on directing your energy into the the jar. If you are the praying type, Saint Christopher would be appropriate to call upon. The Bible verse I use is Jeremiah 29:11.

Let it charge in the sun for about an hour (or however long you deem necessary).

I personally would recharge this before each use, to ensure full energy.

Good luck! 🍀🌌

Theres tons of these floating around the witchy side of tumblr, but I felt I could add some things to the table. Here is my personal master list of witch types!

Ceremonial Witch: Usually the old style of witchcraft is long gone, but these witches live by it. They wear robes, and keep altars and lengthy rituals close to heart.

Draconic Witch: A witch who is often associated with dragons, and is a very fearsome person to come across. This type of witch is almost going extinct, and much of the teaching are passed down personally between teacher and pupil.

Divination Witch: Yes, divination is more of something you can do, but to me, its a type of witch. This witch uses tools and other materials to communicate with spirits, deitys, or their own intuition to get answers or stories they may or may not have known.

Desert Witch: For the witches who live in the desert, they often find ways to make the little materials around them work. Sand, bones, and the herbs that grow around are often the things they use in their magick.

Eclectic Witch: Someone who is not set in there path, but has found many types of witchcraft that suit their craft. Often are associated with many titles, ranging from Storm to Green. Many witches are this.

Energy Witch: These witches use magic visually and internally. They cast circles, and make magic happen using the energy the gain and harvest.

Faery/Nymph Witch: Often an eclectic witch who looks to speak and work with the Fae and other nature spirits (such as Nymphs). This practice is often different for every witch.

Green/Kitchen Witch: Most people consider these two seperate crafts, but usually where one is, the other one is close behind. Witches who are Green enjoy nature, herbs, and anything to do with plants. Kitchen witches (and many, many, MANY, green witches) find uses for plants and incorporate them into food and potions.

Hedge Witch: Sort of a time traveler, but in realm form. These witches live between the astral world, real world, and spirit world.

Heriditary Witch: You were born into a witch family. These witches are often the owners of many hidden gifts, and always have a magical touch. Many also have traditions many other witches do not have.

Moon Witch: Most witches do work with the moon yes, but this type of witch specifically works with it in ways others dont. They revolve certain spells around it, sometimes their days, and often talk to it when they have free time in the night.

Pop Culture Witch: This doesnt just include pop music, but these witches intertwine with magick with music and other forms of entertainment (movies, books, etc.).

Spirit Workers: Witches of this sort tend to be able to speak to the dead, or if not, are definitly not afraid to. Magic to them is revolved around spirits and people of another realm.

Storm Witch: Anyone with a love of storms (and is a witch) has probably done some storm magick. This is someone fearless enough to call lighting, and move the winds.

Sea Witch: The smell of the ocean is this witches best friend. They use the oceans divine sand, seashells, and water to create the magick they so desire. Most also work with mermaids.

Swamp Witch: Often live near rivers, lakes, and of course, swamps. They love the bugs and insects, and devote most of their time walking in the mud, or collecting it for healing.

Sun Witch: Gets most of their energy from the sun other than the moon. Their magic is full of energy, and candles are these witches best friends.

Techno Witch: These witches manage to put magic into text messages, and lace their posts with protection. A curse is just a phonecall away.

Vampric Witch: A vampire, or one who works closely with one, is usually the only one who considers this magick. They use other peoples energy and relay it into their own spells.

Wiccan Witch: This is a witch who has took Wicca as their religion. They use rituals and the power of their gods and goddesses to complete their magick.

Crystal/Rock Witch: Witches of this type use natural occurring rocks and crystals in their craft, absorbing the energy and attributes each one has.

Blood Witch: Blood witches are witches that use blood in their magic, and it’s super powerful. Often takes a lot of practice, and if done wrong, the consequences are unimaginable.

Shadow Witch: A witch who often works with his/her/their own shadow, or in the shadows just as a general statement.

Chaos Witch: This witch is talented in chaos magick, and is often very talented in other types of destructive magick.

Sex Witch: Uses sexual activites in there magick, and uses them to conjure and control energy.

Fabric Witch: A witch that uses fabric and sewing materials to create magick. Can include poppets/voodoo dolls, stichery, or clothing.

Space Witches:Witches that use astrology and anything spacey in their practice.

Music Witches:Music flows through them, provides them energy, and lyrics are often their spells.

Thats it for now! Ill add more as I become familiar to them. If you have any suggestions, please message me.

THIS IS NOT TO DEFINE YOUR PRACTICE. THIS IS JUST FOR PEOPLE WHO ARE CURIOUS. YOU DO NOT HAVE TO IDENTIFY AS ANY OF THESE. I WILL IGNORE ALL HATE.

When a bad guest leaves

Sometimes, as much as we try to be polite, we can’t help but be relieved to see people leave after an extended stay. Maybe they overstayed their welcome, or were more of a nuisance than you anticipated when you offered the invitation. But now they’re gone, and the cleansing and banishing can begin!

Cleanse your space

An annoying guess can leave your house in physical and emotional turmoil. Wash sheets and tidy up the space they stayed in for sanitary purposes, but also to banish the negative energy they brought with them. Once you’ve finished cleaning, take a broom and sweep all the negativity out the front door.

Cleanse yourself

Bad guests are stressful. Your guest may be gone, but the stress that’s piled up during their stay is still present. Calming bath helps physically relax while also soaking away any negativity that clung to you while you were cleaning. Finish the bath off with an exfoliating body scrub to wash the ick away, and lotion as a physical protective ward (and necessary hydration!).

Practice grounding

Having visitors can be limiting, and it’s likely some aspect of your daily routine has been interrupted during their stay. Now is the time to reclaim things and make your space feel like home again. Once your decor is as it should be and secret notebooks are out of hiding, light some incense or candles to help give the area an emotional reset. Hearty, filling meals (like things containing root vegetables) help provide emotional grounding.

Set up wards

This isn’t a necessary step, but it’s a good added precaution. When you get sick you become more susceptible to other infections, and the same can happen with spaces filled with negativity. Setting up a few wards can help to repel any other gunk that ends up being drawn your way. Because the issue is someone who brought negativity into your home, the best placement for wards would likely be your overall home or property, the room they stayed in, and where they slept. The type of ward varies by personal preference and the issues brought on by their presence.
