CAN I HAVE YOUR ATTENTION?

TO ALL EUROPEAN FOLLOWERS

This is a not a ripoff-overwatch logo, this is the symbol of a right-wing party called “The Identitarian Movement”.

I have read some shit about these, and it is clear that they have pretty extremist intentions, as well as some quite xenophobic/racist posts when you look at their online pages, just look at this for example;

“Too beautiful for a Hijab/Niqab” 

(’Schleier’ is used in context with a bride’s veil or a muslim’s headscarf)

Just saying, but using a blonde, naked women for your racist propaganda is as low as you can get. But wait, doesn’t a blonde, likely blue eyed woman remind you of something?

Well, what a coincidence we got ourselves here; if you fill out the logo of the Nazi-Sturmabteilung (SA), one of the first two Nazi-departments, you get something looking surprisingly similar to the logo of the Identitarian Movement. Coincidence? I think not. Wouldn’t surprise me if it wasn’t.

But that’s just the tip of the iceberg. You know what’s the motto of the Identitarian movement?

Their motto is “Integration is a lie” and “Fortress Europe

Like, I am not trying to act like Nazis aren’t obvious as fuck in other parties as well, but I can’t believe that they think they are a fuckinkg legitimate party. They are straightup fucking Nazis that abuse pop culture to look like they honestly care about people. Like, let’s just look at this other shit;

“Ladies and Gentleman, multiculti is not a law of nature!” - Using Sheldon Cooper/Jim Parsons, a gay american, for their conservative, european-only purposes.

Or this fucking abomination. 

Yep, this is Gordon Freeman from Half Life as a Nazi-hero. He is fighting “Gender-Craze”, “Self-Denial”, “Political  Correctness” and “(National) Socialism”. Of course.  classy as always, because if you act like you fight Nazis you can’t be Nazi, am I right? And since ‘national’ is inside brackets they are also fighting regular Socialism!

Please, if you see anyone supporting the Identitarian Movement, unfollow them, stop contact or try to convert them into any ideology but Neo-Nazism.


PS;  Honestly I don’t want to be identified with these pieces of shit, I’m going to change my blog-design tomorrow, because I sure don’t want to be associated with these Neo-Nazis.

Playing as Rakan

Passive: Fey Feathers
Rakan’s coat occasionally generates a shield, even in combat. Rakan can reduce this ability’s cooldown by attacking an enemy champion. 

Q: Gleaming Quill
Rakan slings an enchanted feather forward. If it connects with an enemy champ or epic monster, it deals damage and Rakan’s cloak surges with magic. After a brief moment a heal triggers in the area around Rakan. The heal activates immediately if Rakan touches an ally. 

W: Grand Entrance
Rakan leaps forward, landing (stylishly) at his destination. He then pauses for dramatic effect before launching into the air and knocking up nearby opponents.

E: Battle Dance
Rakan leaps to an ally’s side, shielding them from harm. He can cast Battle Dance again for a few seconds after, even on the same target. If Xayah’s the target, Rakan rushes to her aid from an increased distance. 

R: The Quickness
Rakan breaks into a sprint, enchanting his coat and captivating his audience. While The Quickness is active, Rakan charms and damages all enemies he touches (works once per champ). The first champ he touches grants him a huge burst of movemenet speed.

Witches, Wiccans, and Magick: What’s the Difference?

Lots of Wiccans are Witches, not all Witches are Wiccan, and not all Wiccans use Magick: That seems like a contradiction, but it’s true! What exactly IS the definition of “Witch”, “Wiccan”, “Magic”, and “Magick”? It took me a year into my study (I know… I know) to understand the difference, so, to save you my pain and for your easy reference:

Witch: A Witch is someone who practices Witchcraft. Witchcraft is probably what you traditionally think of as practicing the Craft or practicing Wicca: A Witch respects the earth and follows the Turning of the Wheel (celebrating the movemenets of the Sun (Sabbats), turning of the Moon (Esbats), and possibly eclipses and other feast days), and uses branches of the Witch’s art, such as herbalism, or divination. A Witch can be Wiccan, or they can be a shaman, Buddhist, atheist, Christian, or anything they identify with. A key to differentiating the Craft and Wicca is that the Craft is just that - a craft, or a way of living - and Wicca is a spiritual tradition.

Wicca: A Wiccan is someone who follows the spiritual (or religious, to each Witch their own!) ways of Wicca. The main tenets of Wicca are the Rede (which some expand to include the famous four-step rule of “To Will, To Know, To Dare, and to Be Silent” - which, funnily enough, is definitely a core tenet of the Wiccan way but doesn’t appear in the original Rede!), The Threefold Law (which you may know as the law of returns - what you do will return three-fold), and, the most important one, and the only one some Wiccans choose to ascribe to, is “An Ye Harm None, Do What Ye Will.” Many Witches have adapted this into their core practice as well. Wiccans also worship the God/Goddess duality, a form of ritual definition wherein there are two deities representing feminine and masculine. I’m queer, and the way some older Wiccan authors treat this squicks me out, but remember: The point is, the God and Goddess is in everyone. It’s not meant to be a gender binary - I prefer to think of it as aspects of different deities that are in everyone. If it makes you uncomfortable, treat the duality as different opposite deities (like “god of wisdom/god of war” or “water/fire”) instead of gender.

Magic: This is spellcasting, circle casting, imbuement, and charging, and all activities related to the movement of energy to achieve a specific result. Different Witches have different ways they like to describe their magic - whether it be emotionally charging or cleansing a crystal, or altering the vibrations of an object or situation, or ceremonially performing a candle spell to mirror your desired result, magic is when the magic-user uses personal power and the power around them to affect change using Witchcraft, mteaphysical, or druidic (et al) techniques.

Magick (with a K): This usually refers to ceremonial magick, or High Magick. Whereas performing a candle ritual of charging outdoors is Magic, magic performed according to the rules of ceremony of High Magick is denoted as Magick. You may already be using some of these practices in your witchly routine: The Lesser Banishing Ritual of the Pentagram is of High Magick, and many Esbat traditions come from High Magick, such as formal circle casting with a wand. Many Witches, me included, take variations and cues from all types of magic, including High Magick, to use in their own personal tradition.


I hope that clears things up! If you’re interested in magic, there’s no better place to start than Ellen Dugan’s Natural Magic. For High Magick, I’d highly suggest starting with Donald Michael Kraig’s Modern Magick. If you’re just starting out with Witchcraft, I’d recommend Ellen Dugan’s Book of Witchery, for Wicca, Scott Cunningham’s Wicca: A Guide for the Solitary Practitioner, and for Neo-Wicca, Titania Hardie’s Enchanted.

Gay Rights Movement - incredible film making, incredible message.

I watched this and almost cried. Almost. It needs to be watched over and over, again and again, by lots and lots of people.

Thankfully, I’ve never personally been treated as a second class citizen, but so many people are. I live in the UK, a leading country in terms of acceptance, yet there are still many things which need changing.
