My brother, on minecraft: “I need to find a witches hut”
Dad: “their usually somewhere close, hidden in plane sight.”
Me, a wiccan: “like in your house?”
Dad, oblivious: “yeah something like that.”
Me: “HAHAHA YEP SOMETHIN LIKE THAT”
Dad: “ what’s so funny?”
I’ve been playing a lot of Minecraft recently and it’s really got me thinking on/about it being used as a sort of like an altar/e-shrine that one could use if they were still a hidden witch or even a beginner witch.
When playing I know that most players enjoy building a home so I figured why not build a home with rooms of worship inside it? Each room would then be dedicated to a god/dess and then i would go out into the world looking for the devotional items or things that would symbolize that god/dess.
Inside the game there are many potential representations Torches - Candles Lava - Fire Element Rivers/Lakes/Waterfalls/Oceans - Water Element Dirt - Earth Element Feathers - Wind Element
YOU CAN MAKE AN ENCHANTING TABLE WITH A FLOATING SPELL BOOK. YOU CAN BREW POTIONS TOO!
There’s so much potential for Magical workings in this game. Seriously guys go check it out or try it for yourselves~
I’ll try to take pictures of my house to show you what i mean, hopefully it’ll work… Anyways talk to me about it! What are your thoughts?
NOTE: Since the last rant I did ended with a ton of witch hunting and threats, I just need to say this, DO NOT TRY AND “FIND” ANY OF THESE PEOPLE. Witch hunting is disgusting, and the fact some of you sent threats to Jess and Jason last time was gross af and it didnt need to happen. So if I find out ANY of you have witch hunted these people down, I will NOT be happy.
Last time I did a rant about Mystreet everything went way out of control so I’m not going to be going to deep about the series anymore.
I’m not going to go into things such as “Omg it was everyone’s fault!!” because I don’t have time to go down that rabbit hole. I’m mainly here to rant about the comments on the recent Mystreet Episode; “The Break-Up”
If you all don’t know what this episode is about, Basically to sum it up everything that has happened leading up to this, Gene was getting suspicious of Zane getting “to close to Aph” and basically complained to Aaron. Aaron ignored him, His family got involved, MIchi blackmailed his sister about “Aphmau tripped and Zane caught her”. His sister showed him the picture, he THEN go suspicious. Cafe’ got burned down by Ivan, Aphmau assumed it was Aaron, Aaron is super emotional unstable at this point and is like “I need to go home” and they basically “break up”.
Now normally I would be ranting about Mystreet but I’m honestly not interested in this series anymore, its the comments that bug me.
Now before I show you some of these comments, I DO NOT want to see ANY comments about how “Omg they’re just kids!!” because that excuse is so stupid, you wanna know why? Because if your CHILD is online and is saying things “OMG MY FICTIONAL SHIP IS SINKING SO I WANNA KILL SOMEONE AND RIP OUT THEIR LUNGS” then idk, maybe you shouldn’t let your kids online.
This probably the MAIN comment on this video, the whole “omg aarmau is sinking so I need to kill Michi!” Like, I feel like I dont even need to EXPLAIN why these comments are messed up, and this isnt even one the worst ones. Just look at this next one:
Do you see how psychotic these people sound? They are SO defensive of their ship they make comments such as “ILL RIP OUT YOUR LUNGS AND FEED THEM TO YOU” over a friken FICTIONAL PAIRING AND CHARACTER. Oh lets not forget the “Am I right guys?? :D” because ya know, you’re supposed to agree with that comment about this person wanting to literally dismember a fictional character from a minecraft series on youtube. Let also not forget the constant “MIchi is such a hoe!!” because that just makes things 10x better.
I needed to just put this one in here because it honestly makes me go “???”
You all have to understand while yes, Aarmau is based off Jess’s and Jason’s real life relationship, just because a FICTIONAL pairing “breaks up”, this does not mean that their real life relationship is affected. Just putting that out there real quick since this is a common comment on this video.
This is going to be the last comment I comment on because this entire thing is just gross and I want to be done with it. I know I am complaining about Aarmau shippers taking things to far but there is also a few “anti-aarmau” people who are taking things way to far. I’m not “pro aarmau” or “anti aarmau”, Im more “I dont really care for it anymore”, but this does not excuse these comments. Saying things like this makes you no better than the Aarmau shippers who are saying “KILL MICHI THT HOE”.
This isnt the first time this has happened with one of Jess’s videos tbh. This has happened with Zane (ie. Kill zane!!”) Katelyn (shes getting in the way of my aphmau ship!!!), and even other ships as well (ie. Zanvis, Garmau, Laurmau, etc.), I think its just gotten out of hand and its just beyond disgusting.
I also want to state this: If you are sending Jess and Jason death threats over Aarmau “breaking up”, I will not be afraid to call you out. Death threats are disgusting and you could go to prison from sending them, so think twice before you type something.
Anyways, I’m done. Like i said before, I wont be commenting on the whole “its everyone’s fault they split up” thing because its exhausting and I have studying to do, so see yall later.
Since I’m moving across the country next week with my fiancee @queerwit ) and our familiar (aka our dog Boo), she’s looking for a job, and all of my usual supplies are already packed up for the big move, not to mention that I’m low on spoons from packing and money from putting a deposit down on our new apartment. Thanks to some inspiration from @stormwaterwitch ‘s post about using minecraft for magick, I came up with a solution- below are instructions for my minecraft spell to find employment at a well paying job!
*I highly recommend performing this spell in creative mode. I originally started in survival mode in a world where I have spent many, many hours but found that I simply didn’t have the materials I wanted for the spell, and moving around is much easier when you are able to fly freely*
1) If starting a new world (I did), build a space to practice magic. Here’s mine:
I planted roses for their power in magick and poppies for their personal significance to me.
2) Decorate your space with green banners. Green is used to represent real world money (if you’re from the US like me) and the in game currency (emeralds). Here’s what that looked like for me:
However, it can look different for different spaces; as long as you have a few hanging around, that’ll work.
3) Place a furnace on your work space/altar and begin to smelt emerald ore into 9 emeralds. Though it’s easier to simply obtain emeralds through mining or straight from the inventory, smelting them charges them and makes your spell more powerful.
4) Place blaze powder and bottles o’enchanting (to give your spell power), nether stars (to bring you a good job) and emeralds (to make sure the job pays well), in a chest in front of your witchcraft space, arranged like this:
It’s also important to make sure there’s a ledge above your chest for the next step. I placed mine like this:
5) Run a bucket of lava over the chest to seal the spell and give it a final kick!
logic would seem to dictate that the lava would burn up the chest, but it doesn’t
6) Save and quit, then start/continue applying for jobs!
Besides the four main characters, there are at least 13 side characters waiting to be introduced. The first four icons are part of them, who will appear in the “Overworld Arc” of the Askblog scenario. They are the ones the main characters encounter on their daily routine, either as a neighbor or as a colleague at work. For now, they are currently “locked”. Which means, they haven’t made any official appearance inside the story yet. Therefore you cannot ask any questions to them.
Depending on the questions, one of them might pop up in the main characters’ answer panel. Or, Zed might mention their names in one of his journal entries. That’s how they will be “unlocked”, up and ready for answering questions.
As for the bottom two, they will have to wait. I don’t know when I will let them loose, but I will hold onto them for a while. We all know who they are, and we all know that both of them are playing quite a huge role in the scenario.
