  • ❝ d’ya mind ?

  • ❝ ooh, that’s bad luck. ❞
  • ❝ don’t do it. ❞

  • ❝ there’s a lesson in there somewhere. ❞
  • ❝ my grandma always had cats. she said that they could see ghosts when we can’t, and warn you of thieves. ❞

  • ❝ do you believe in the afterlife
  • ❝ all i know is there’s more than i know. ❞

  • ❝ when you die, you rot. it’s a fixed system. physics doesn’t take sundays off. ❞
  • ❝ my parents believed in everything. father, son, holy ghost, spirit filled and full of the light of god. they taught me all of it, chapter and verse. ❞
  • ❝ i went to bed every night in a world full of magic where anything was possible. ❞
  • ❝ it’s like everything that made the world anything more than what it is is just –– stories. like snake oil. but worse, because snakes are real. ❞
  • ❝ i wanted to get that magic back so bad, but one day i just accepted the fact that i couldn’t, because life is just not that interesting. ❞
  • ❝ don’t look at me like that. ❞
  • ❝ the fun is just getting started. ❞
  • ❝ i could teach you to fight. ❞
  • ❝ hey, you want coffee ?
  • ❝ are we pregnant ?
  • ❝ what i’m about to say may sound irrational to you, but i have all sorts of rational reasons for saying it, and doing it. ❞
  • ❝ say it, and we’ll talk about whether or not you should do it. ❞
  • ❝ are we … discussing this, or are you telling ?
  • ❝ there’s some wiggle room. ❞
  • ❝ are you unhappy ? because i’m happy, okay, you make me happy. ❞
  • ❝ yes, i see that you’re happy. from this side of it. the wrong side of it. and i think maybe i resent not being happy. not resent you, just … resent. ❞
  • ❝ do you still love me
  • ❝ we are like a history book. we’re established fact. we don’t change. ❞

  • ❝ are you saying no
  • ❝ i lived my life, good and bad. definitely not light as a feather. ❞
  • ❝ in life, you believed in nothing, so you will go to nothing. you will be done. ❞
  • ❝ there is nowhere else for you to be. ❞
  • ❝ tears have fallen for you. ❞
  • ❝ do i get a say in this ?
  • ❝ death is not a debate. ❞
  • ❝ how many do you think have come before you, all with promises and threads and offers of gold, glory, love ? who are you to misguide me from my duty
  • ❝ you are but a man, not even one i should remember. ❞

  • ❝ i’m a vulgar woman. anger and grief have just really made me vulgar. ❞
  • ❝ god, you know, i should thank you. it’s so much easier grieving someone when you’re glad they’re dead. ❞
  • ❝ oh, fuck your feelings. ❞
  • ❝ everybody has feelings, everybody cares about what they feel. i don’t care about what you feel. i care about what you think. what do you think about what you did ?

  • ❝ you, i remember. ❞
  • ❝ there is nothing i can do to lighten your heavy heart. ❞
  • ❝ your heavy heart sank you like a stone, right back where you last left off. ❞

This Day in Disney History

October 1, 1971:  The Magic Kingdom opens to guests for the first time!

The day everyone was waiting for!  Amid fanfare, the Magic Kingdom in Central Florida welcomes it’s first guests.  The park layout was almost the same as Disneyland’s in California, and opened with 23 attractions. Along with the Magic Kingdom’s opening, the Contemporary Resort and the Polynesian Resort also opened and began hosting guests.

October 1 is a big day in Disney’s history!  

anonymous asked:

Your blog is really cool so i was wondering if we could get a smoll s/o and widowmaker or sombra where they dont wanna tell their s/o that they're a member of talon cause s/o is so pure and accepting

BRO, you’re the one that’s really cool!~

(I was going to make a DBZ joke, but ain’t sure if you or anyone would understand, rip)

____________________________________


Widowmaker

When Amélie gets a call from Talon during your date she notices your worry on your face. It’s quite uncommon that the both of you get enough time to have a date and she wants to make the most of every chance, even though she’s not one to quite show her affection- but you still loved her because she is able to make you feel loved.

“Was that work again?” You asked quietly trying to hide your disappointment already knowing the answer.
“Yes…”  Amélie still held her stoic appearance. She sighed taking out her purse grabbing her cash to pay for your meal, you quickly stopped her by placing your hands on top of hers.
“Promise me you’ll stay safe.” Your eyes were pleading an innocent.  Amélie hated it that she couldn’t tell you her job, besides the fact that it’s dangerous.
“I promise mon amour.” She intertwined her fingers with your petite ones.

She heard you sigh showing your discomfort of not being able to know her job.  Amélie continues to wonder why you’re with her as she can’t spend much time with you. She’s working for a terrorist group while you’re simply a small, innocent civilian. It honestly baffles her.
“Thank you for today, it’s been absolutely lovely.” You smiled at her giving off your angelic aura. “Now you better go.” Amélie nodded leaning forward giving you a chaste kiss before leaving.


Sombra

The woman waited anxiously for you in front of your usual cafe that you go to at the start of your dates. In fact it was where the both of you magically met on a rainy day.

Her head turned every which way to look for you, she contemplated checking the local security cameras, but she stopped herself from doing so.
“Boop!” She jumped in her spot as her nose was softly ‘booped’. Her eyes where wide and looked everywhere but down in front of her which was where you were slightly crouching. When she finally looked down her face softened lovingly and she let out a chuckle.
“Hello cariño.” She offered her arm to you as the both of you went inside.

Just over an hour went past before Sombra got a notification on her phone. She quickly took a look at it under the table, she groaned, it was work. She mumbled profanities in her native language. The woman was quickly looking between her phone and you making it seem as though she was still paying attention.
“You need to take five?” You asked with filled with concern. She looked back down at the messages on her phone for a few seconds then when she looked back up at you it was filled with hesitation.
“I… uh..”
“I’ll still be here no matter how long you take, work is work.” You smiled at her. You knew that she had to keep her work a secret besides the fact that it’s to do with IT, that’s all.
“I’ll be back in less than five minutes.” She quickly got up, kiss your forehead before dashing into the bathroom.

Fact of the day

Magic and sorcery aren’t really quite as similar as you’d think.

Magic belongs to something called ‘Arts’, which is basically an umbrella term for techniques that use seithr to create phenomena. There are two major types of Arts - magic, and exorcism. You can also put Ars Magus, and Ars Armagus down here, too, since it’s the lovechild of magic and science.

Sorcery uses mana, which is the energy of nature.

This Day in Disney History

December 15, 1973:  The Pirates of the Caribbean opens in Advetureland at the Magic Kingdom.

With the location of Walt Disney World so close to the actual Caribbean Islands, this ride was not one of the original opening attractions at the Magic Kingdom.  It was thought the interest wouldn’t be there as the real thing was available a few hours away.  Now, Pirates of the Caribbean is one of the more popular attractions in the park!

In recent years, there have been characters from the popular movie franchise added, and you can see Captain Jack Sparrow and Captain Barbossa alongside the rest of the characters of the Caribbean!

Magickal Burnout (and how to avoid it)

So, you’ve just started diving into the world of the diviner. Spells, readings, charms and talismans: it’s all super cool and you’re really excited. Awesome! Be excited! Fuel your interest and knowledge - but keep in mind all of these things require time and energy.

I feel like a lot of people, myself included when I first got started, want to dive right in and do all the things. They start running with a bunch of cleansing and banishing spells, do 27 tarot spreads a night for the first week, then try to load up a bunch of personal spells on top of it. 

Suddenly they hit a brick wall. The spells stop working like they did in the beginning. They begin feeling the burnout. They keep asking themselves “What am I doing wrong? It was working so well before. Maybe this isn’t for me.” This doesn’t only apply to new diviners, many seasoned people of magick are often guilty of the same thing if they have a burst of energy.  It isn’t so much that something was done wrong, just that it overloaded their energy flow. I’ve seen perfectly awesome spells thrown out as they were perceived as “not correct” or “not functioning” only because they were performed during a burnout- especially banishing, protection and cleansing rituals.

Instead of throwing around spells at everything that moves, identify a few important things. Is the goal of this spell a true need of mine, or simply something I want? Am I willing to dedicate the proper amount of time and energy to see this spell through? Am I willing to make any sacrifices to see this through?

As a practical example, I recently bought my first home (I’ll get back to this in a later post). My first home happens to have a pool. I know that I’ll need to clean it regularly, maintain the chemical levels, and occasionally relocate any critters that happen to wander in. Am I going to do these things every single day? Of course not. If I did, I wouldn’t have the time or energy to actually enjoy the pool. So instead, I set a loose schedule. The beginning requires a lot of attention and work, but then only every few days I would check and maintain the chemical levels. Maybe once a week, I deep clean the filter and bottom of the pool. Only if absolutely necessary would I need to relocate a critter or two. Then down the road, I’ll decide to add a water feature, or a new pool toy.

The same applies to magickal practice. Once you have found your base level of understanding, you don’t need to power through spells for the rest of your life. Not every day has to be “magically enhanced”, in fact it may be better off without. Every couple of days, throw a general tarot reading as a spot check. Once a week or so, do some deep meditation to clear out the depths of your psyche. Wandering spirits aren’t always bad, and most go away on their own, so only banish if you need to. If you identify something that you need, consider taking traditional routes before casting a spell for it. The more energy you store, the more energy you’ll have to spend on something you really need.

By employing these types of practices, you’ll start to find that you are able to cast powerful life-altering magick for better or worse. Am I saying to stop writing every neat spell you come across down? Absolutely not! Just keep them off to the side. Maybe when you really need it, you’ll look back and find it and have the true energy and drive to cast it successfully.
