Hey! I have to tell you all about this amazing app I came across today while looking through tarot creators’ accounts.

This app is called Labyrinthos Academy, from the creator of the Golden Thread tarot and Luminous Spirit Deck! It’s a matching activity app that teaches you the meanings of the 78 tarot cards, both right side up and reversed.

It’s completely free and the only commitment to the app is making an account in order to use it. From there, you choose whether you’re a witch, a wizard, or a mage (I’m assuming it’s female/male/non-binary), and you learn the meanings using a digital version of the Golden Thread tarot deck. Every time you pass a lesson, you get somewhere between 3-5 cards that you can study! As you complete more lessons, your little character levels up and gains some cute new attire.

I’ve been trying to learn tarot for such a long time, but everything was too messy and complicated for me. Labyrinthos Academy has been, by far, the easiest way for me to learn! The cards have an easy-to-read font and the illustrations match the adjectives so well that it’s easy to make the connection and remember.

It’s available for iOS and Android! And remember–it’s free! I’m in no way affiliated with the app or the tarot cards (nor their creator); I don’t even have a single tarot deck myself! But I wanted to share this so other witches who were struggling like me had a place to learn!

CONFESSION: 

The only reason why I can’t support the Circle of Magi is because I simply don’t understand, why mages, even at a young age, are being completely cut off from contact with the outside world.

My idea for the Circles would be to turn them into academies, like a Thedas version of Hogwarts, teach mages how to use their skills for good, (including explaining the dangers of blood magic) allow them contact with their families and friends, let them visit home from time to time. I can imagine it would reduce a lot of frustration and thus the danger of possession

I think templars do exist for a good reason, even phylacteries. However they should be working hand in hand with the mages instead of intimidating them. Communication is key. And I think it’s been proven often enough that negative emotions are not helpful when dealing with magic and demons.

All in all, if cthe circle was more open to the world and to their mages, I’m not sure apostates would even exist.

fauxfires  asked:

I really struggled to pick just one word, but in the end... 'Baisemain' for Anders/Hawke, please!

(Baisemain - a kiss on the hand.)

The clinic’s empty save for the two of them, lanterns dark and doors locked and desk sturdier than it looks, Anders kneeling between Hawke’s legs and Hawke’s hands curling around the wood until he smells smoke.

Smoke.

Hawke jerks his hands away as if he’s the one burned and not the desk, and stares down at a dark handprint that an absentminded slip of his magic has left singed into the surface. “Maker’s sake.”

Losing control like a kid; he hasn’t done that in years. On the bright side, this time it’s pretty unlikely to end in anyone running to tell the templars.

“Well,” Anders says, following his gaze to the handprint. He rests his head against Hawke’s thigh. “That’s flattering.”

“Sorry. I don’t usually—I’ll get you another desk.”

Anders’ eyes crinkle at the corners, and he shakes his head. “It happens.”

Though he’s not feeling in danger of setting anything on fire anymore, Hawke keeps his hands carefully raised, away from both desk and Anders. And Anders watches him, gaze softening.

He reaches for Hawke’s hand, and Hawke hesitates before letting him take it, lets him gently pull his hand to his lips. And he stares as Anders kisses his palm, still warm with mana. As if it’s perfectly natural.

“The desk’s all right,” Anders says. And he turns his face to rest his cheek against the palm of Hawke’s hand, not looking away from his eyes. “I like it better like this.”

Hi my name is Ebony Dark’ness Evanuris Solas Way and i have the shiniest bald head (evanuris means bald) with no hair and pointed ears and icy grey eyes like limpid tears and a lot of people tell me i look like an Anicent Elven God (if u don’t know who they are get da hell outta here!). I’m not related to Fen’Harel but I wish I was because he’s a major fucking hottie. I’m an elf but I’m tall and way more knowledgeable than the Dalish. I have pale white skin like an egg. I’m also a mage, and I work with a group called the Inquisition where I’m in the inner circle. I’m a Rift Mage (in case you couldn’t tell) and I wear tight pants. 

CONFESSION:  I’m pretty sure I’ve cracked the code for an unstoppable mage with all specializations. Knight Enchanter is obviously overpowered by its self, but when you are a Rift mage and have that one (fire) passive ability that triggers no cool down PLUS the passive ability that gives you 10% mana when hitting a weakened enemy, it allows you to keep casting spells, basically until death. And with Necromancer, so long as you have Kitty’s collar, and fire spells, you can basically never die. I love it, but I can never have a challenge when I’m a mage now.

Hi my name is Simon Salisbury Snow and I have curly blond hair (that is kind of thick) and bright blue eyes and a lot of people tell me I look like Troye Sivan (AN: If u don’t know who he is get da hell out of here!) [I’m not related to Colin Firth but I wish I was because he’s a major fucking hottie. I’m a mage and I go to a magick school called Watford School of Magicks in England where I’m in the eighth year. I wore my school uniform with the tie loose. I was walking outside Watford. It was snowing and raining so there was no sun, which I was very happy about. My hot mortal enemy Baz Pitch stared at me from the football field. I put up my middle finger at him.

Just so long as Gala doesn’t try to pick him up, because I’m pretty sure he has a mage’s upper body strength…meaning none.

Dude bro I’m pretty sure mages have some of the most hardcore upper body strength, l mean if ya gonna swing that staff 24 hours everyday you probably gonna dem arms of steel.

Alright friends listen up.  You’ve heard of Amid Chaos, now it’s time for the next exciting new and definitely 100% original gay lit novel, Spiretown!!

SPIRETOWN is the exciting and original story of a guy named Collin Anderfels (yes.  that’s his name.)  and his girlfriend… Marian.  Marian is concerned because Collin is a Templar.  Hmm, a Templar, you say?  What might that be?  WELL I’M GLAD YOU ASKED

The mages are super dangerous and can turn into Abominations:

This is why they all live in a ghetto city where they can’t hurt anyone.  But sometimes they escape.  When they do they are branded

and it’s up to the Templars and Collin Anderfels to save the day!

By chapter two our good friend Collin is in the hospital after his fight with the abomination.  He’s pretty worried because mages attract demons.  You know, as they do.  But by chapter three he’s doing okay again, at least until a mysterious individual pays him a visit:

Logan Grey is the leader of the mage rebellion.  In fact the book describes him better than I can:

Which is pretty hot, I can’t lie.  I mean, I have a type.

A couple more chapters in and things are definitely heating up, because Logan knows all about the Templars’ ways:

But don’t worry.  Cul– I mean, Collin can’t resist the poster pin up boy for mage rights.  I mean, who can?

This is when I ran out of book to preview, but man, it sounds fantastic.  Don’t you think??
