Like. They’re both supervillains. And both use black sand-ish looking stuff. It’s just that the former is actual Nightmare Sand (magic) and the latter is microbots (science). Meanwhile the first guy’s movie, Rise of the Guardians, is a Dreamworks superhero movie with a fantasy theme, and the second guy’s movie, Big Hero 6, is a Disney superhero movie with a science theme. The former is also a team of heroes fighting for kids, and the latter is a team of heroes made by young people.
Also it was funny enough before, how Yokai and Amon are both masked men running around and terrorizing their respective cities, but
When Pitch said “Look at what we can do” and pointed to that massive ice sculpture, the first thought in my head was: “Ok… but… wtf is that”
That ice sculpture looks like something Jack could do if he had tons of more power, if not do better. So I started to think and kinda realized the potential of what Jack and Pitch’s powers combined could lead to.
Jack’s power is ice, and Pitch’s “power” is nightmare sand. Nightmare sand is easily dispersible, and easily changed into dreamland, but with ice, it gives the sand a protected coating; so it can be transformed into something else very easily, and it will surely take more than one hit to destroy it.
On the other hand, ice melts. Nightmare sand is basically shredded rocks that can’t be melted until 1200 degrees C / 2192 degrees F, so perhaps the nightmare sand protects the ice from completely melting away so easily?
When I thought of it that way, it makes way more sense as to how impressive the potential between Jack and Pitch’s powers are.
The ice and sand sustain each other, keeping a tight bond, and become almost indestructible. If my head canon actually is a canon, then that ice sculpture will never melt and probably stay in Antarctica for all eternity
“As they floated ever higher, none of them, oddly, sensed they were in any danger. Rather, they felt incredibly calm, as though this unprecedented occurrence was simply the way things were supposed to be, which was equally odd.” -The Sandman and the War of Dreams
A yellow or orange marker (or some other color that you associate with happiness)
A piece of paper
Optional: Herbs for good dreams (i.e. lavender)
I recommend decorating your container with happy things to kinda boost the feels in this, but you don’t have to.
Step 1: Light the candle, place your marker and paper in front of you, and then close your eyes. Think about the happy dreams that you want the sand to attract. If you want it to attract a certain dream/type of dream, think of that, but if you want to leave it up to the hocus pocus to decide the dreams, just think of general happy things. Light, blissful, things. Like chocolate or kittens.
Step 2: On the paper, write your intent (i.e. “Attract good dreams”). If you want to attract specific dreams, describe them in as much detail as possible (you can take up the back of the paper as well, if the marker doesn’t bleed through).
When you’re done with that, say the following: This will bring good dreams to any target. Let the dreams refresh them and brighten their days. No bad dream will be able to invade the target’s mind while this spell is in effect.
You can even sing a happy song to charge it with happy stuff.
After that, imagine the sand making someone (or you) have happy dreams. Imagine feeling a lot better from having these dreams. Imagine the happy dreams lifting the target’s spirits and such.
Step 3: Mix the glitter and (optionally) the herbs into the sand. Take your sealable container and put half of your sand in it. Then, fold up your paper and place it on top. Pour the rest of your sand on top of that. Make sure it’s completely covered by sand. If it isn’t, just kinda bury it a bit more.
Step 4: Close your eyes and imagine the sand absorbing all of the energy of the spell from the paper.
After that, seal your container up and let it set (preferably in a bright, sunny place) for three days.
Step 5: On the third day, open that jar and take the paper out. Leave the sand in the jar. Burn the paper, keep the ashes if you can and mix them with the sand.
Step 6: Keep the sand in the jar, leave the jar in the sunny place. You can use the sand in spells, sachets, etc. It now attracts good dreams. Put some in a little bag and put it under your pillow, if you want. You can even pretend it’s pixie dust and throw it on your friends or something to bring them good dreams, whatever floats your boat.
