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.
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!).
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.
basically, I’ve spent the previous week going through the AFTG tag (yes, I went through all the 1250 works) on ao3, because I needed more content, official or not. and since it was so freaking hard to find some quality happy content™ (bc apparently y'all like to suffer that much —which, to be fair, I should have expected and I can #relate), I thought I could make it easier for anyone else seeking it and share it here! 🎉
so this is a recommendation list with my favorites ones so far; they’re all from ao3, and if you find any of your works there and want me to remove them from this list, just message me and I’ll remove it. if you have any recommendations for me to add here, message me too! ♥ I haven’t read anything from ff.net or tumblr just yet, but I plan on doing that later this week.
they’re not all entirely happy and they’re not that happy either, but then again that’d be hard considering the amount of trauma and tragedy the authors have to work with (thanks nora). but!!! they’re happy enough to make it to this post, so yeah! you’ll probably gonna enjoy them.
right now there are more oneshots, canon-ish, mostly set right after TKM or a few years in the future. I might add an AU and multi-chapter category later, so keep checking for updates! and don’t forget to show appreciation for the authors by leaving comments and kudos! ♥
Its cuffing season! You all know what that means… It means there’s love in the air! For those of you experiencing a little “cuffing season” fever, I have a little spell for you. I personally am not a fan of love spells potentially manipulating another person, so here is an attraction spell instead to give you a little boost of confidence and extra shine, so let’s get right to it!
What you’ll need:
Two pink candles - for love and romance
Twine/String - a natural bond
Bay leaves - attract lovers and grant wishes
Rosemary/rosemary oil - makes you memorable
Vanilla oil/extract - creates an attraction
Epsom salts - for calming and cleansing for a fresh start
Before you begin, mix some Epsom salts, rosemary, and vanilla together in a container and set aside for a bath after you have completed the spell. I prefer to use rosemary oil for this, but be careful applying essential oils straight to the skin for long periods of time! Bath salts dilute them and make them safer.
Begin with your personal pre-ritual cleansings, meditations, or circle castings. Allow yourself to enter a pleasant state of mind, like a “happy place”. Picture the candles as you and a future partner, but imagine no certain person, only pleasant thoughts regarding a partner. Take your two candles and tie a knot around the one representing yourself and then around the other, leaving twine or string draped between the two. Dress your candle with an oil of your choice or with vanilla. Carry this oil down the twine connecting the two, and then dress your partner’s candle; light your candles. Take three bay leaves for each candle. On your candle’s three, write three “attractive” attributes you wish to have, and on your partner’s three, write three broad personality traits you would like to see in a partner. Burn the bay leaves in their according candles, and then allow the candles to burn out or burn as much as they can safely and snuff out the flame. Complete your ritual by lighting some candles, burning some incense, and taking a nice warm bath with your Epsom mixture while you absorb the qualities of your oils!
