like a video diary

anonymous asked:

I'm rewatching the video diaries right now and the part where Liam is taking fan questions where they say what they look for in a girl.. Literally Louis' face changed the SECOND he asked the question. Do hets not notice this stuff ?? And when he said he likes girls who eat carrots... That was such a sarcastic answer like WTF !!

I KNOW. The video diaries are what sold me from day one. How do people not see it??? I ???? Louis’ answers were either sarcastic or about Harry. It was obscene

How to take care of your spirit companion?

@starryskywitch asked: “In a recent ask you mentioned that spirits need to eat, could you explain how that works? And also maybe the basics of taking care of a spirit if you’d be so kind? C: “


I’ve been meaning to write a post on this for a long time. Then I saw someone did it already xD http://magic-for-the-masses.tumblr.com/post/160143675923/do-you-know-of-any-guids-for-taking-care-of-your  ( @magic-for-the-masses ) But I still decided to go ahead and write my own.


I think a good way to look at this is by taking into account the pyramid of needs. By the way, I’m no psychologist, so I don’t know if this is severely outdated or not, but I think it’s a good basis. (For further reading into this, you can look up Maslow’s hierarchy of needs.)


So the base is physiological needs. Food, water, warmth, rest. Or in the case of your spirit, whatever they need to drink/eat so they don’t starve, whatever weather and environment they need (if any is fine, okay. Mr.Dragon doesn’t *need* a lava river, but he’s definitely happy in one.), and time to rest. (I go deeper on what they eat here: http://thedragonscholar.tumblr.com/post/161007882706/what-do-spirits-eat-upg )


But then you think “But Scholar! I *have* to build wards around me and my companion for them to be safe! That’s vital!” And yes, but not physiological. Apparently this person first stated there are basic needs, and then made subdivisions. The wards fall into safety needs. A secured astral place, or well, your own home, with wards and barriers around it. The security of knowing they won’t be eaten up by a bigger, badder spirit at any moment. Even if you’re not into witchcraft, you should learn methods of spiritual/psychic protection, in order to take better care of your spirits. (Stating this since I usually see spiritual protection being talked about in the context of witchcraft.)


After that there come the psychological needs: first, feeling loved and like you belong. Then, the self esteem.


If you’re skilled at spirit communication, and a demonstrative person, you’ll make them feel loved easily, if you actually like them. If you have trouble showing love, or communicating with spirits, someways to show them they’re loved are:

-Offerings, in every shape or form.

-Daydreaming about them. Thinking about them. Seeing something and go ‘I bet Betsy would like this.’ They can feel it. They know.

-If you have an altar dedicated to them, or part of an altar, keep it clean, neat, re-design it, play with it… It’s a space in your life you’ve dedicated to them. By taking care of it, you’re taking care of them.


Then, the self esteem. Feelings of accomplishment and prestige. For the accomplishment thing, it’s good to ‘assign them tasks’, or ask them for help with certain stuff. X spirit will act as your body guard. Y spirit will help you with your self esteem and pick cute outfits. J spirit will give your food extra flavor and help maintain a clean house. They get to do stuff with you and for you, and get praised in return (you should praise and thank them!), making them feel accomplished.


For the prestige thing… I’m not sure if what I’m thinking of falls in this category. In other pyramids, I’ve seen clothes and shelter listed in the basic needs. And it’s somewhat true. Clothes and shelter makes it so a person doesn’t die of hypothermia, for example. But just really basic sheltering and clothing fulfills that need. IMO, clothes and shelter give them prestige… In their own eyes. Those are things that can elevate their self esteem. A big house filled with toys made my kid spirits really happy. Changing their old, outdated clothes for new, modern clothes (and leather jackets!) makes them feel badass, and good about themselves. Even my cat spirit asked for clothes (and we designed it from scratch and came up with the most disgusting piece of cat clothing ever and we destroyed it and swore to never do that again).


The peak of the pyramid is about self actualization and self fulfillment, including creative endeavors.


Some of my spirit companions, after watching me doing it for so long, got into tabletop roleplaying xD It’s a creative endeavor that makes them really happy. I just leave RPG books on my altar, and Mr.GuardianAngel learns the game and acts as the dungeon master for the other spirits. I wanted to tell this because it’s very endearing <3 And so you remember the spirits actually go and do things in their own.


But some ways you can directly involve yourself in fulfilling these last needs are:

-Watch informative videos and documentaries with them, on themes of their interest. For some time Mr.Dragon got really curious about how other humans were, and we watched videos of people reading their old diaries for like a week.

-If you write or draw, tell them they can influence your creation, and let them create with you.

-If they feel like they can write/draw on their own, let them, and show interest when they show it to you. My companions tell me about the stories they write/roleplay through tarot cards. I just pull all the cards I feel I need and through reading them I get to know the story.

-If you astral travel, travel with them to locations neither of you know (with safety measures please!) so you can learn together.


To anyone who has read this far, thanks for reading. I hope this is useful for you.

Hello everyone! I have wanted to create video about Anastasia for few years. My wish was to connect real Romanov tragedy with story from animated film “Anastasia”. And now I have finally done it! In the beginning I could not even imagine that it would be so difficult. I hadn’t got enough material for this video, but now I am almost satisfied with the result. I hope you’ll like it!
Videos used: War and peace, Admiral, The princess diaries, Mathilde, Nicholas and Alexandra, Downton abbey, The lost prince, The Romanovs: An Imperial Family, Rasputin, Russian ark, Romanovs, Grigory R.
All sounds from “Anastasia”
