Why 8th March you ask?

There seems to be an acceptance in the fandom that 8th March 2017 will be the date The Lost Special is aired or the date on which we will be given some sort of information regarding The Lost Special.

Following the disappointment of the episode 4 not airing on John’s and Sherlock’s anniversary on Sunday 29th January, the conspirators have taken to searching for clues for an alternative date, and, hopefully, successfully, have found one in a frame from The Lying Detective, on a billboard saying “MARCH 8, THE SECRET WILL BE UNLEASHED.”

Now, on first glance it would seem that the premiere of the series “Rouge” is 8th March, but I find it highly unlikely that the creators would use Sherlock to promote some other TV series which is in no way connected to either creators, actors or Sherlock it self, and it would be a waste to break the fourth wall in that way tbh.
Plus, I’ve checked on imdb, Rouge premiers on 22nd March.

So why such a random date then, 8th March?

Well my friends, 8th of March is International Women’s Day.
From Wiki: International Women’s Day (IWD), originally called International Working Women’s Day, is celebrated on March 8 every year.[2]In different regions the focus of the celebrations ranges from general celebration of respect, appreciation and love towards women for their economic, political and social achievements.“

It still doesn’t prove much, BUT, if we look at it from the perspective of TAB (which has been widely accepted as a decoder ring for S4), mainly the scene when Sherlock, surrounded by suffragettes, solves the case, it kind of starts to make sense as we are able to draw some parallels.

Firstly, the association between the suffragettes and the IWD is an obvious one, and I don’t intend to dwell on it.

Secondly, the inscription on the billboard “the secret will be unleashed” denotes the solving (unleashing) of the case (secret) by Sherlock when surrounded by suffragettes. It further denotes the possibility of unleashing the information regarding the secret 4th episode.

And finally, the suffragettes in TAB were wearing purple robes, which correlates with the fact that IWD is celebrated by some by wearing purple ribbons (wiki). If we look at the billboard again, the message “secret will be unleashed” is somewhat obscured by purple flowers (someone wrote a meta how it’s lavender, and how is in some way symbolic to homosexuality back in the day, if someone could send the link to the meta it’d be amazing).

So there you have it guys, my opinion on the whole 8th March thing. Would love to hear some feedback.

HOW TO STUDY when on your period

My first masterpost.. Yay!!

I’m pretty sure most of us have been graced by Aunt Flo’s presence, at the most unassuming of times.


The cramps, ache, flow.. It’s tough to manage and take care of yourself when you have a terribly hectic schedule.


This is a simple guide for studying when you’re on your period, I hope you find this useful!



1. Plan ahead.
Being in tune with your body is very important. You already know the kind of menstrual cycle you experience, your dates, your pms schedule. I’m not asking you to maintain a calendar, but have an idea of when your next period will arrive. Plus the one week before and after margin, because periods can be irregular and if you’re taking too much stress then they arrive much earlier than anticipated!
Planning your classes for the week if you can, would be really helpful. Work around your schedule and give yourself some time off, some breaks.
If you have any important presentations or exams, then you know that you’ll have to prepare really before hand because it’ll be too stressful for you to do everything during your period.

2. Take the day off, if possible.
I know that the second day is really horrible for me, so if I have the option to, I take the day off and relax at home. If it’s not possible, then it’s all right.
I know that you have to be really brave and face the pain, but sometimes, it’s good to just relax and pamper yourself.

3. Wear dark, comfortable clothes.
Comfy enough so you don’t feel so suffocated, but tight enough so that your tampon/napkin stays in place and there aren’t any possible leaks. I know many of us love wearing skirts and dresses, and if you can handle yourself, then it’s all right. But if you’re clumsy, like me, I suggest wearing some shorts underneath so that the skirt or dress doesn’t get ruined.
Also, a pro tip to avoid spotting- wear double underwear. Trust me, it’s a life saver.

4. Time yourself.
You know your body, your flow, and the intensity and the cramps you face. It’s difficult to sit for hours, or stay in one position for hours. Time yourself, and take washroom breaks to keep checking and make sure you don’t ruin your clothes. What I used to do was, I knew the classes where my teacher would be all right with me being a bit late, and went to the washroom accordingly. Schedules can be hectic, but little things like these save time.

5. Carry extra sanitary napkins/pads/tampons.
So that you don’t have to ask around! Once on my third day, I absolutely forgot to carry any napkins and I had to go to the medical room to get one.. Gosh that was embarrassing.

6. Stay hydrated.
Drink a lot of water, and warm liquids. I personally love drinking flavoured water. Tea and coffee helps a lot.

7. Keep yourself warm.
If you’re at home, use a hot pack. Keep it on your belly and snuggle inside a blanket. It eases the flow, and lessens the pain.
If you’re out, or in class, carry a warm scarf or a jacket or a stole. And when you’re sitting, just keep it on your lap. It’ll be really warm and comfy, when the cramps are too painful.

8. Study in short intervals of time.
Don’t go for long study sessions. If you haven’t already done this, do short study sprints. Study the subjects that you find easy, if you don’t feel like it but you have to as exams are approaching.

9. Take stretching breaks.
This is super important! You have to stretch yourself and your legs. If you can, do light exercises or some yoga.

10. Healthy diet.
The body is losing blood.. You have to replenish it! Take a good, balanced diet rich with iron. Eat well, have proper nutrition. Pack yourself some healthy snacks to munch on, or some crunchies. I tend to feel a lot hungry, so I binge. Won’t recommend that though!

11. Oils or medication
One of my friends on tumblr (@akiameokami) told me that rubbing lavendar oil on your wrists and stomach helps with the cramps and ache, relaxes your muscles and is also a good sleep aid. You can also use tea tree or peppermint, they’re natural and completely safe.
Also, if you really have to, take some pain relief. I wouldn’t recommend medication because it influences the cycle, but if your schedule is extremely hectic and you have important deadlines to meet, you can take some pain relief medications. Always be cautious when having medicines, and don’t overdose.

12. Relax.
Seriously, don’t stress out too much. Do whatever works for you. Take care of yourself!! Spend the day in a blanket, watch movies, and just chill.


These are a few tips that I have. If you have anymore please feel free to add them. This is my first masterpost.. Yippee!! Periods can be very stressful, but your body and health is important.
A few years back, I got ill and had my period at the same time, and I fainted from the exhaustion and the lack of nutrition. I have been very careful ever since. I didn’t find many resources on this topic, but I’ve take help from a few resources on google! Also, discussing periods can’t be very awkward but menstrual health is as important as anything.
Have a happy period!

Man, I wish there was some sort of Christian witch devotional. Like it gives you a daily verse or passage and may be even a spell to do along with it.

Today’s verses are 1 Corinthians 13:4-7

A tea to encourage friendly loving feelings for your fellow wo/man (followed by a tea recipe)

If I had more motivation and time, I would totally make this. May be when I have time I’ll make blog posts about this or something. IDK

The Cook

Task 7

I love tea, i adore drinking tea whenever i can. So no surprise this recipe is for a tea blend.

I love to use vanilla matcha as my base, add some honey stiring clockwise while thinking of my intent and then i add some ginger. I use puree ginger, but a chunk of ginger root or powder would work im sure just as well.

Simple and easy.
