Mystery Skulls Always Has Such A Boppin Beat To It. LETS BOOGIE

Monday 8:27am
I woke up with you on my mind.
You called me babe last night —
my heart is still pounding.

Tuesday 10:53pm
Today I realized we won’t work.
What we are is hurting her.
And I think she matters more to me than you do.

Wednesday 11:52pm
I broke things off with you today.
She barely said a word.
I’ve never regretted anything more than this.

Thursday 4:03pm
I shouldn’t have sent that message.
You shouldn’t have been so okay with receiving it.

Friday 9:57pm
I almost messaged you today.
I didn’t.

Saturday 8:49pm
I’m walking around town in search of alcohol.
They say that liquor numbs the pain of having a broken heart.
I want to put that to the test.

Sunday 2:32am
I heard you texted a girl you’ve never spoken to before.
I wonder if it’s because you’re trying to replace me.
I can’t help but wish you weren’t.
I thought I was irreplaceable.

—  a week with you on my mind, c.j.n.
“Bribe Me”

The vampire folded her arms and glared at the witch. “Please let me in.” Her invitation had been revoked.

Lazily, the witch leaned back in her chair and gazed across the open door’s impenetrable threshold. She stretched, yawned, picked up a feyburn apple from a bowl on a side table, and finally took a generous bite before replying, “No.”

“Are you going to make me wait out here all night, then?”

“Thinking about it. Bribe me.”

Centuries of marital bliss are built with love, affection, and mischief. The bargaining ended several minutes later with the vampire promising her wife:

  • A back rub
  • Taking care of the cauldron cleaning duty for a week
  • The witch could pick the next two movies
  • Thirteen pumpkin spice cookies
  • “And you have to win me a plush at the Halloween carnival.”
  • “How am I going to do that tonight when it starts this weekend?”
  • “Not my problem.” And this was the last straw.

With a gesture, the vampire summoned an arcane wind that picked
the witch up and sent her flying out the door. Laughing wildly, the
two chased each other deep into Autumn’s Lost Wood.



They deserved a lot of screenshots. 

Celend The Shy 
Solaria The Monster Carver
Eclipsa The Queen of Darkness
Moon The Undaunted 

And at the end we get to see 2 Mewni Queens with unknow name. Special cameo for the one in pink tutu that also has a very similar wand like star’s, and also has hearts in her dress but her symbol appears to be bunnies.

when Star grabbed Toffee’s finger we get to see some flashback which include some scenes showing Toffee laughing and Eclipsa’s “evil” glare. 

Modern Monsters
  • Demon kids loitering outside of convenience stores, lighting up cigarettes with their own flames
  • Werewolf girls snarling at men who dare to cat call them, baring fangs to show they are not to be trifled with
  • Sirens crooning into a mic in a smoky bar, voices resonating with otherworldly passion
  • Vampire EMTs taking night classes and struggling to get into medical school
  • Alarunes dutifully tending to their gardens, whispering encouragement to their seedlings
  • Satyrs being the most charming baristas ever seen, flirting with every customer
  • Gorgons uploading fashion tips and make up tricks onto their blogs
  • Nagas chatting with their centaur friends about how hard it is to workout when you’re not bipedal
  • Sphinxes posing annoying riddles at a train stop and then leaving
  • Hybrid monster kids not being sure where they belong but learning to love themselves anyway
Alternative Spell Books

Books are the most common media for magic. The portability and ease of stacking spells (and volumes) makes them ideal for many, but there are countless variations. For instance, reptilian witches often carve glyphs into their scales.

Forest sprites on long journeys stuff pouches with painted leaves. The magic lasts until the leaves dry out or are eaten.

Magic users with a technology background sometimes use USB sticks charged with enchantments, often programmed to convert electricity into spell energy.

In areas where magic need be hidden, pencils work surprisingly well and are favored by pixies in human form. Pens tend to explode due to an inherent conflict between magical spells and mundane ink.

Kraken, lacking hands but being spoiled with tentacles, use a water jet-based technique. Spells are imbued into currents of water exhaled from their bodies. They are then gathered up and woven together by the creature’s tentacles and kept orbiting around them until they are called upon for use. This method is often used to duplicate and share spells amongst the leviathans.

Sentient deserts work the wind to carve elaborate glyphs into sand dunes, often to trap or protect creatures slumbering within.
