The Signs as Types of Fairies pt 2 (Earth)

Taurus - Brownie (brùnaidh)
Brownies are ususally solitary fairies seen alone or in small groups. You will mostly see male Brownies because only few of them are married. They have brown hair and brown clothing which covers their 2 ½ to 3 feet tall bodies. This fairy works in the night at rural homes and farms for only one family, to which they may become attached. Brownies love food, especially cakes with honey, corn muffins or a bowl of milk. However, if you mistreat them in any way they will either leave or play tricks on you.

Virgo - Elf
Elves are described as youthful looking men and women who are actually quite small. They are of great beauty and live in forests, caves or springs. They are often believed to be long-lived or immortal and to have magical powers. This kind of fae loves fun and they can’t bear a life without joking or playing tricks. Sometimes they seem to exaggerate their behaviour but they are truly good-hearted and their laughter is a beautiful music for the ears of humans.

Capricorn - Ghillie Dhu
Ghillie Dhu is Gaelic and translates to “dark haired lad” or “dark servant”. Those fairies are male solitary spirits whose task it is to protect the woodlands. They’re most active by night but when they sleep, they are keeping themselves warm in a round nest consistent of plant fiber. Berries and nuts are their main nutrition. They avoid contact with all humans due to their shyness but they normally are friendly and harmless sprites. Ghillie Dhu’s have a gentle devotion to children and are reported to help lost people finding their way back.

 The aroma of blueberry muffins filled the hallway as Y/N walked through the hallway holding a bag of freshly made goods. Those 20 muffins were specifically for one person and it was Jeon Wonwoo.

Jeon Wonwoo is a smart and good looking boy in Y/N’s grade and not to mention but Y/n’s crush. He was very passionate about singing and he loved to read. Y/N was there to support him with that.

She would help him pick out a book to read but he would’ve already read the book. Wonwoo would enter some contests and yet, Y/N would always be to every single one with her special poster made for him.

Her passion for Wonwoo annoyed the boy too much. The support felt great but it happened to often he just didn’t want it. It mean nothing to him since he barely even knew Y/N.

Though his little classmate  didn’t get all his attention, she still gifted him with the baked snacks she would make for him. Once he received him he would either throw it away or give it to his best friend Mingyu or just find any other way to not eat it even if it was a really good sweet. The only sweet he has ever tried from her was her mochi.

Remembrance Cookies

These cookies can be made on Hallow’s Eve. They can be shaped like people and the herb rosemary is added to the dough as a symbol of remembrance. Some of the cookies are eaten while telling stories or attributes of special ancestors, reminding us that we still have access to their strengths–or perhaps a predisposition to their weaknesses. The rest of the cookies are left outside by a bonfire as an offering. This can be a solemn ritul, but it need not be.

1 ½ c. powdered sugar
1 c. butter or margarine (softened)
1 egg
2 t. vanilla
1 t. almond extract
2 ½ c. all purpose flour
1 t. baking soda
1 t. cream of tartar
1 ½ T. chopped rosemary

Heat oven 375 degrees. In a large bowl, beat sugar, butter, egg, vanilla, almond extract, and rosemary until creamy. In a separate bowl, sift flour, baking soda, and cream of tartar. Fold flour mixture into sugar mixture. Beat until dough forms and refrigerate for three hours. Divide dough into halves. Roll out one portion to 3/16 of an inch on a floured surface. Cut out with gingerbread women or men cutters and place on an ungreased cookie sheet. Repeat rolling and cutting with second portion. Bake for 5-7 minutes.

Stir flour, baking powder, and salt into oil mixture. Chill several hours to overnight. Heat oven to 350 deg F [175 deg C]. Roll about a tablespoon of dough into a ball (yes, it’s messy). Drop balls into confectioner’s sugar & roll around until coated. Place about 2 inches apart on greased baking sheet. Bake 10-12 min. They will be a little soft but should not be mushy.

(Extra water or broth can be added if thought necessary, just not too much.) Place the potatoes on top of everything else. Add a bit more salt and pepper, the rest of the garlic and parsley. Place the rest of the bacon over this and pour the red wine vinegar over them. Place a tight lid on the pot and cook in the oven at 325 degrees for two hours.

Form this dough into round, flat cookies with around 4 inches diameter and slightly less than an inch of thickness, arranging those on a greased baking tray. Then “carve” decorations into the cookies with a blunt knife - try Celtic spiral designs for that extra effect.

Bake the cookies at 180 degrees Celsius (360 Fahrenheit) for ten to fifteen minutes until golden brown.

• soulmate! AU
• you live in a colourless world and you will until you meet your soulmate, they’re supposed to brighten up your life
• one day, you can finally see in colour but….he can’t

I never thought that Colourless was going to be such a popular series. Some of you guys messaged us to update it 😂 Y'all cute, I see you so…here we go. The fourth instalment of Colourless. Tumblr messed up my original format above, if you’re wondering.

- Admin L 


Latte or vanilla bean frappe? Chocolate or strawberry smoothie? 

You wanted to cry, standing in the line for a taste of On Cloud Nine’s - the best and only sugar filled cafe on campus -wonderful treats.

It had become a tradition of some sort, every week, one of the clique members would do the snack run. This - particularly hectic - week, to get things off your mind, you volunteered. At least this would take your thoughts off certain matters for a short yet refreshing time. 

The crushed piece of paper had messy scribbles of your friends’ orders, crumpled because of your nerves and the dilemma you were facing. 

Coffee or smoothie? That’s the first question I should be asking myself.

You were tempted to rip out a good chunk of your hair in frustration. Both drinks were equally delicious, just thinking about them was enough to make your mouth water. Both were your fixed picks, but maybe it was time to try something new.

Coffee, smoothie, or should I get an iced tea?

You wrinkled your nose at the thought of ice.

What a great idea, a crushed ice drink in this miserably wet and cold weather.

Worry began to build up when you snaked up the queue and finally, there was only one girl ahead of you. Your mind still had not been made up. The pastel walls and soft, neon sign decor did nothing to calm your nerves. From one corner, the pink flamingo statue seemed to be judging you.

“Hi! Welcome to On Cloud Nine, how can I help-“

“I’ll have one of whatever she’s having,” you blurted out without thinking. “And, um, one butterfly pea tea uh, warmed…, a banana and almond muffin and one…Thai milk tea with…seventy-five percent sugar, no ice, e-exactly two teaspoons of milk…and one cinnamon stick?”

Your face turned bright red after reading out that ridiculous order in public. Whatever concoction you ordered was really questionable, you were mentally re-evaluating your choice of friends. In that moment, you wanted nothing more than for the ground to swallow you up.

Surprisingly, the barista had complied and added precisely one whole stick of cinnamon in the tea. It puzzled you as cinnamon in Thai milk tea did not sound exactly…fitting.

Your drink was one that was much more appetising, God bless the girl in front of you who ordered hot chocolate with extra marshmallows. One sip was all it took to make you feel warm and fuzzy.

Hot chocolate was energising, soulful, truly a comfort food.

Just as you were packing to leave and head back to your friends, a rush of cool Autumn breeze filled the small coffee house, causing your body to unintentionally shiver.

However, the real reason that a shocking bolt spread down your back was not because of the weather, but because of who entered On Cloud Nine.

You could say you were on cloud negative nine or so, mood dampened by a downpour.

A clique stepped into the store. Not just your own clique but another group of friends trailed behind.

A familiar pair of hazel eyes bore into the sides of your face, you refused to turn your head to meet his gaze.

You pursed your lips, guard raised but dread and puzzlement flooded you.

Sensing your obvious shock and confusion, Elkie stepped forward to squeeze your hand encouragingly. She also took the bag of snacks away from you to settle into a nearby booth.

You nearly missed the words that emitted from Woojin’s mouth since he said them in such a small voice as if he too was dreading this meeting. Yet, there was some sort of underlying, camouflaged hope and anticipation in his tone.

“We need to talk.” 


Oh, the irony.

Despite the glittered splashed walls and fairyland decor in On Cloud Nine, the atmosphere felt like one in a horror movie, or better yet, it felt as if this scene took place in a dystopian planet, foreign from the one you knew.

You took a long sip of your hot cocoa, savouring the heat and bitterness of the dark chocolate, in a twisted way, it resembled your mood. The warmth stung your tongue, the bitter aftertaste of the eighty-five percent cocoa chocolate only increased the tension, yet, you welcomed it.

Maybe it was some sort of indicator to make sure you were alive, that this was reality and not some nightmare.

You knew you had been putting off meeting Woojin for the longest time but there was no other way around this sticky situation.

Bae Jinyoung - a classmate from chemistry - was experiencing one right across your booth. He visibly winced as Lee Daehwi attempted to rip the gigantic rainbow swirled lollipop off the edge of his best friend’s  boyfriend’s  fringe.

Such a sweet romance.

You sighed dreamily, wishing the same for you - even if your somewhat non-existent love life claimed otherwise.

“Let’s set the record straight.” Jiwoo finally broke the choking silence. “Woojin, please explain your side of the story.”

In reply, the dancer shrugged. “I don’t know what’s happening myself.”

“She wants to know if you can see colours,” Im Youngmin elaborated, trying to keep his friend’s calmness intact.

“I can’t.”

The verbal confirmation shot into your heart and made it shatter into a billion crystal fragments like glass. Your grip on your mug tightened, sending a wave of déjà vu crashing over you.

I can’t smash this mug, I’ll have to pay for it. Besides, hot chocolate is much better tasting than coffee.

“Do you recognise… Y/N as your soulmate?” Elkie posed the other question, her lips pressed into a tight pout. She drummed her fingers on the table out of worry.

Woojin’s jaw worked to form an answer but no words were projected.

“I-I…I would if I could confirm it.”

A shift was sensed in his mood, his eyes darkened, his tone deepened and the loudness of his charming voice increased.

“How do I know you’re not playing with me right now?” He hissed, face reddening with fury. “You know this is a sensitive subject for me. Stop playing games with me!”

A few curious glares were sent in his general direction but he did not exactly pay them any mind.

Woojin rarely showed his temper, it came as a huge shock, but you expected him to flare up anyway. In his shoes, you would too. A part of you pitied him, he was really missing out on a great person for a soulmate.

“It’s fine. It’s whatever. Let’s go,” you beckoned, setting your mug back on the table and standing up to leave.

Jiwoo caught your elbow before you could even take a step out of your seat. She let out an annoyed huff before tenderly shoving you into your chair again.

“Listen,” she said in a low tone. “I’m not leaving until we settle this today.”

Woojin opened his mouth to oppose but he quickly clamped it shut from the stares his hyungs shot him.

“We can stay here until the cafe closes, I really don’t mind.” Jiwoo tapped her pen to her bottom lip, raising a brow, scanning for even the smallest sign of opposition.

A sigh left Woojin’s mouth, he looked apologetic and defeated. “You know I wanted to talk,” he whispered meekly. “But I don’t think I can.”

“That’s why we’re here,” Donghyun said matter-of-factly. “We’re here to facilitate the…discussion.”

Youngmin nodded encouragingly, ruffling Woojin’s hair. “We know not much talking would occur if it was just both of you.”

“Yeah,” Jiwoo giggled, suddenly regaining her bubbly personality. “More like a lot more lip-locking!”

Her joke elicited laughs, be it embarrassed ones from yourself and your soulmate or amusing ones from your friends. The atmosphere loosened up, it felt like a fresh start.

“So, hi. My name is Park Woojin, what’s yours?” 


“So 6pm? I’ll meet you outside your dorm block?” you confirmed, heart nearly racing out of your chest.

Woojin nodded in reply, pushing his chair out as he stood. “I’ll see you then.” He appeared cool and collected but the second he thought you were no longer able to see him, he jumped and yelled in excitement.

A date was the last thing he expected, probably not an activity he would have wanted to engage in when he thought about it but somehow, Woojin was anticipating tomorrow evening. He felt energising electricity zap him all over, much like when he was dancing to his favourite songs.

Maybe it’s just the soulmate pull…

Perhaps it was only that factor that attracted him but either way, Woojin was finally excited about action in his depressingly almost non-existent love life - he was never really enthusiastic about dating after Naomi anyway.

Knowing he had a date set up brought a new feeling, a feeling that was oddly pleasant. One that was filled with hope, that things would work out, that he would solve this puzzle.

Blame all the sugar in On Cloud Nine for Woojin’s mood switch and sudden hype. His mood definitely took a turn, for better or for worse was the question. He was a tad bit afraid as it had been a long while since he had gone on a date. Then, there was all that joy that was bubbling.

You were not Naomi.

You were a different person, someone he could get to know. Someone who he could potentially learn to trust, who he could enjoy times together.

You were a person that could hold his future.

And of course, someone who could make his universe burst into colour for the very first time.

Lifting does help people. It’s not always about high end makeup or designer bags. Yesterday there wasn’t a single thing to eat in this house..no joke. Not even a can of corn. We had no food. Now we’re stocked. Cereal, ramen, bread, lunch meat and cheese, macaroni, fruit, juice, tea, sugar, goldfish, danishes, muffins, milk…. My 2 year old niece and nephew have food to eat. Nobody is going hungry. I won’t feel bad for how we made that happen.

I don’t have enough followers for this to be seen by anyone myself, but I really wanted to let someone know.

I recently saw the Muffins N Milk Salvation Army thread and decided to check out her twitter account - I don’t have any sensitive content or parent lock on my account (seriously, I’m 20, there is no chance of someone else turning on these settings), and have never seen this come up before. After spending quite a while trying to remove my ‘sensitive context filter’ (I didn’t even know I had one?) I FINALLY got to view her tweets and there is NOTHING remotely sensitive about them.

It almost seems like twitter has made it difficult to view her tweets because she is trans or homeless or spoken out about the Salvation Army, IDEK.

I just think it’s wrong and sad, and I wanted to let someone know because, if it has been done deliberately I don’t have any power to do anything about it.

Thanks

Of course you can, lovely Anon! I wanted to tell you that even if I don’t know you I belive that you are strong enough to go over this. I hope that you have someone to talk to, but if you don’t, I’m here to talk, always. My DMs are always open, even if we don’t know each other at all. Also, our body is a very complex creation of nature itself, and you are indeed very beautiful! I hope you have a great day lovely Anon.

You would wake up every morning with Todoroki tangled arround your waist, hugging it, keeping you close. He was a night cluddler, and you couldn’t even beging to express how adorable he was.

However the mornings in which he stayed in bed past you, were few. He used to wake up, make breakfast, have a shower, get dressed, and after that he still had time to check his phone before you woke up.

-Good morning, (Y/N)- You heard as fast as you arrived to the kitchen.

-Morning, Todorki!- The table was full of food he had prepared for you. Cereal, toasts, muffins, orange juice, milk, and even things you couldn’t name.

And you smiled. You didn’t even know what to say. 

-Thank…thank you for all of this.

-What do you mean?

-For the beakfast.

-Isn’t that what boyfriends and girlfriends do?

You chuckled at his answer. Sure he was very new to this, but you loved it. 

You sat and started eating. And something just didn’t feel right. At all.

-Have you thought about today’s party?- He muttered, almost as if he didn’t want you to hear.

-I don’t…I don’t think I want to go- You said staring at your tummy.- I don’t feel very good today.

-Okay, then we are staying home. Any films recs to watch?

You abruptly stood up from the table. No. No. No. And no.

-TODOROKI!

-Uh, you don’t fancy seeing films today?

-It’s not that you idiot. I know how important that party is for all the new heroes, I know how that party can open you a lot of doors when it comes to the profession.

-I ain’t going if you don’t feel good, nor I’m going to go and let you stay home, all alone.

You sat again. You knew that once Todorki had decided for something, he wouldn’t change his mind for shit. 

-Gimme film recs or i’ll choose it myself.

-…How to train your dragon?

And you didn’t even know how you found yourself laying over a blanket on the floor, Todoroki big spooning you, watching How to traing your dragon. He would leave short pecks on your cheek from time to time. His hand innocently lowered to hug your waist, and you shivered.

-Are you okay with that? 

-Ehh…Not quite, sorry. There are somedays in which I don’t like it when people touch my tummy or waist.

-No, I’m the one who’s sorry.

He snuzzled his face in your shoulder, something he only did when he was conflicted by something. 

-You okay?-You asked, with a worried tone.

-No, it’s not about me.- He said standing up and pausing the film.- Are you okay? Do you wanna talk? I don’t want anything I can do to make you feel uncomfortable.

And if something, you loved this about him. Straightfoward. With no fear to apologize. Comfortable to be arround. 

-You are a strong and beautiful woman, and I cannot cease to think about that. I wanna help you to love your body as much as I love it. Tell me everything that bothers you.- His voice was calm, almost as if he didn’t realize the sweetness in his words.

And maybe two hours went by, maybe two hours in which you realized how much luck you had having him by your side. 

The film was near its end when you asked him:

-Do you regert not going to the party?

-No, at all.

And you smiled. You knew he was being honest. 

anonymous asked:

Why can't I find a muffin recipe that doesn't use milk?! I'm out of milk and want muffins! Why do muffin recipe makers hate me?

This is relatable! Dairy is usually the one ingredient I never have on hand when I have the spontaneous urge to bake. I don’t regularly consume milk and/or cream so I usually only buy it for baking, and then once I use what I need it just sits in the fridge and goes bad.

I do know that buttermilk and heavy cream have a longer shelf life than regular milk so if you find a recipe using those you have more time get more uses out of them. I don’t really know if things like evaporated or powdered milk could provide solutions, but it’s probably worth researching.
