4

hey, it’s that time!! by which i mean i could use some extra money, so i’ve finally got around to (officially) opening up my commissions! all prices are exactly as stated here, although if there’s something you want that isn’t listed here, just let me know what it is and i would be more than happy to work out a price! (visit my art tag for more examples of my drawings)

i will be willing to draw: any canon characters, fan characters, original characters, furries, mild gore, partial nudity/mild nsfw

i will not draw: mechas, intense gore, full nudity, pedophilia/incest

please be aware that i fully reserve the right to turn down any commissions, especially if it’s something i don’t personally feel comfortable drawing. (sexualized/pin-up art of minors is one example)

if you’re going to commission an oc, please provide some sort of reference other than just a written description (even a dollmaker image would work!). i would also request that you make the details of your commission as clear as possible, such as if you want a specific pose, expression, etc.

even if you’re unable to commission me, every reblog is appreciated!

if you are interested or have any questions, please either send me an email at caldroid.art@gmail.com, or IM me on tumblr. thank you!

IPKKND3: Episode 15 (July 21, 2017)

Game ON between Advay & Chandni. And it looks like Chandni’s currently in the lead. Huzzah! 

Advay &  Chandni, he’s the Rahu in her kundli
→ After wrapping up the awkward dinner with PeePee, the family sits down with a panditji (astrologer) to match PeePee and Chandni’s kundli (birth charts). PeePee is being a moron, rattling off price tags of everything he owns. And Advay’s having a ball making fun of the guy.
→ HAHA he turns to Chandni, and says, “Nice guy. You’re sure tum iss calculator ke saath khush rahogi?” [Translation: “Are you sure you’ll be happy with this human-calculator person?”] Chandni offers a weak defense of PeePee. ☜Advantage Advay☞

  • BTW, interesting how Advay & Chandni are conveniently always seated next to eachother. Even when the family’s trying so hard to get PeePee and Chandni together.

→ Chandni brags about PeePee to Advay and calls him “cool, nice, rich.” The last one really rubs Advay the wrong way. He asks her, “Ladke ka ameer hona tumhaare liye itna kyun matter karta hai? Dil ameer ho toh ek sikka kaaafi hai.” [Translation: “Why do you care so much about your future partner being rich? If a man has a good heart, then wealth doesn’t compare.”] Advay holds up his shagun ka sikka (the coin he gave Chandni) as he says this.

  • Advay thinks Chandni lied about his parents out of greed i.e. she wanted to be the mahant’s eldest child, live in the haveli etc. So when she talks about PeePee being rich, it pushes all the wrong buttons.
  • Notice how the shagun ka sikka goes back and forth between these two in this episode.  Every time one of of them ‘wins’ a round, the gold coin gets referenced as a ‘prize.’

Those that destroy property at protests do it because they recognize that the only language capitalism speaks is profit. Protest songs or banners mean nothing to the leaders of capitalism, only the price tag of suppressing protests and fixing the damage registers on their radar. Only when public resistance to their policies becomes so expense that it isn’t worth it do they change their deadly policies. That is what activists mean when they say capitalism values property more than people and that is why activists target property.

Context: I’m DMing for a group who is playing Curse of Strahd. The barabarian, Bruce, forgot to retrieve his magic spear so it was confiscated by the law enforcement of the town they’re in. Seeing how dejected Bruce was, Zindara the warlock went and purchased a wooden spear made to be a child’s toy and used a bit of magic to make it sparkle. He then gave this to the barbarian and attempted to convince him that it was far more powerful than his other one.

Zindara: (IC) “Oh yes, this spear is extremely powerful. It’s a wonder I managed to get my hands on it, but I knew how upset you were to have lost your other one.” (OOC) I roll Deception to convince him this is a magical weapon.

He rolled a 23 while Bruce rolled at 2, so in awe of his new weapon he goes to show it to Larofin the paladin.

Bruce: (IC) “Look at this! Isn’t it amazing!”

Larofin: (OOC) I roll to see through the deception… 17?

Me, the DM: That is pretty obviously a toy spear. There’s even a price tag hanging off of it.

Larofin: (OOC) I want to roll deception to convince him that this is also a holy weapon used to slay a dragon… 19.

The barabarian rolls a 5 so listens in awe as the paladin describes how a holy warrior used this spear to slay an ancient dragon that had threaten to destroy his city’s temple and devour everyone inside. As the story is wrapping up the party’s “no-nonsense” NPC walks up and the barabarian calls her attention to his “treasure”.

Bruce: (IC) “Kamala! Look at this! It’s super powerful and rare! Zindara got it for me!” (OOC) Hah, jokes over now guys.

The NPC sees through the deception easily but doesn’t say anything for a few moments. She raises an eyebrow as she looks at the “legendary” spear, then at Zindara (who is trying not to crack up), then at Larofin (who is trying not to grin), then lastly at Bruce who is obviously very excited. There is a long pause before she speaks…

Kamala: (IC) “Wow, I never thought I’d see a weapon of legend with my own eyes. I used to hear stories about it; that only the most powerful of heroes are capable of wielding it.”

She rolled a 21 for charism and he, of course, rolled a nat 1 as the warlock and paladin nearly fell over laughing both in and out of character. Bruce is now completely convinced that this is a legendary magic weapon used by a famous paladin to slay an evil dragon, and thus calls it the “Sacred Spear of Dragon Slaying”.

Bad breeder warning:
Ricky Cooper

Doesnt quarantine and has stated several times that he’s into breeding for the money. Also equates the price tag of an animal with its overall worth, despite the fact it is a living thing. Apparently to him, a $30 snake is “junk”

i usually try to keep these types of posts professional… but what a piece of shit.

please reblog this everywhere.

7 Steps for Maintaining Motivation

1. Grasp that it’s YOUR life, and no-one else’s life.

2. Decide to “live on purpose”.

3. Recognise that achievement has a price tag attached to it – and decide you’ll pay that price.

4. Work on constantly maintaining your focus.

5. Chose a skill or a field and become competent, or an expert, in that area.

6. Find other people who will hold you to your goals – and will believe in, and encourage you, to strive to reach your dreams.

7. Consciously notice the progress you are making, and remind yourself “it’s worth it” as you’re further on the path.

It’s not even about the price tag or fancy hotels and expensive trips. It’s about seeing her face light up when you say, “we’re taking a road trip.” It’s about planning to visit cute little cafes, matching t shirts and converse, and taking selfies together. Find a partner who wants to make memories with you. Adventure together.

Things that the Kaiba brothers definitely do I swear
  • Hiccup when they laugh
  • Have a really annoying half-smirk
  • Spoil their friends rotten… secretly
  • Go 6 days without sleep and then crash for a solid 3
  • “Are you ticklish?”
    • both Kaibas, tucking their elbows into their sides “…no”
  • Cry at Disney movies. Neither of them can make it through Dumbo without shedding a few (read: lots of) tears
  • Go to orphanages and just kinda… kidnap them all… and take them to the toystore and say “get whatever you want, forget the price tag, I own this joint”
    • They do this independently and often unplanned
    • Once Yuugi and Jou were at Toys R Us and saw Seto in the middle of the card aisle, throwing a game against a 6 year old; two aisles over, Anzu caught Mokuba in toy handcuffs with two little girls pointing Nerf guns at him.
    • Mokuba just gets worse as he gets older. By the time he’s twenty he’s turned into a veritable Bruce Wayne and starts going up to Seto like “bro can I adopt this one”
  • Eat pizza with a fork
  • Hit ‘eject device’ before removing a USB
  • Can quote the entire first season of Avatar from memory
  • Paint their nails
    • Mokuba likes going with purple
    • Seto’s normally end up a shade of blue or white
  • Have full conversations in morse code
    • From separate ends of the house
    • It’s the only language they speak when they text
    • Sometimes Seto will be sitting at his desk, typing an email. Mokuba will be playing a game. They’re both silent, but they’re talking. If you follow the pattern of Seto’s keyboard and listen really close to the buttons on Mokuba’s console, they’re telling each other about how Kelsey in Algebra was a bitch today and they should have pizza for dinner
  • Are constantly each other’s dates for things
    • Business party? Sorry Angela, I’m going with my brother. School dance? Fuck off Kaitlyn, I’m bringing my kid sibling
  • Are attracted to pretty people who beat them at things
    • “Hey you looked pretty blushy around Yuugi today Seto” “Shut up Mokuba”
    • Mokuba, who just got beat up in gym class “SETO HOW DO I ASK SOMEONE OUT”
  • Have the voices of angels
    • At Karaoke? Don’t make Seto sing, he’ll charm the pants off everyone in the room
    • Mokuba was pretty much dragged out of band and into choir at school because let’s face it he was shit at trombone but he can sing higher than our sopranos and w e   n e e d   t h i s   c h i l d

Doing Magic Without Casting Spells

When I was a witch I thought “doing spells” was the height of all magic. After I left witchcraft I found myself doing spells less and less until I just… stopped. But this didn’t mean my life was without magic. The form my active magic took just changed.

I do magic with talismans now. Others may call them “altars in a box.” I call them talismans ^-^

Once a talisman is built, it works forever as long as it is properly charged. In the photograph is the charging of my personal prosperity talisman. 

Talismans are a low-spoon magical solution. The creation, use, and upkeep of a talisman requires no personal energy beyond putting a few objects in a container. You do not need to charge talismans with your personal energy.

A talisman is, in my definition, a magical trinket which can manipulate energies in your favor. In this article I am talking about container talismans.

Container talismans are built like puzzles. Each object added holds a special meaning and will affect the energies of the talisman in a special way. In my example money talisman, I have added:

  • Lodestone, to draw money, prosperity, and wealth.
  • Lodestone oil, to draw money, prosperity, and wealth.
  • Coins, to represent what I desire.
  • Gold pebbles, to represent what I desire.
  • A jar of iolite crystals with a $1000 store price tag, to represent great wealth (dressed with lodestone oil).
  • A bottle of pure gold flakes, to represent great wealth.
  • A charm bag of basil, to get the spirit ally Basil to work on my behalf for profit.
  • A sigil to save money, for obvious reasons!
  • A small jar of marijuana, a gesture of sacrifice to give back to the spirit world, and to represent what I desire.
  • My last dollar until payday, a gesture of sacrifice to give back to the spirit world, and to represent what I desire.

This talisman brings me a lot of spending money and I am rarely ever out (except now, which is why I am recharging and donating my last dollar!).

On the other hand, talismans are a practical low-fund solution because one can literally be made out of paper slips stuffed in to a jar. No need to get fancy!

Try building different container talismans for prosperity, relationships, wishes, and protection

  • Try adding dried herbs and stones of traditional correspondences.
  • Add representation of spirit allies who will help.
  • Include poems, images, sigils, or references of your goals and dreams.
  • Talismans can be simple or complex. Make them to your tastes and the preferences of the spirits you work with.

To build your own talisman, select an appropriate container and cleanse it using your favorite method. Cleanse objects and state their purpose as you add them to the container. “This dried rose represents eternal love within my heart.” “This quartz chip is to empower the other elements of the talisman.” And so on :)

When your talisman is assembled, charge it by placing candles on or near it and lighting them with intent to draw down power. Or, place it in the Sun and Moonlight for 24 hours, asking Nature to rise from below and complete the trinity of empowerment. In the picture, I placed a candle in the middle of the talisman jar. I dressed the candle with lodestone oil for extra power.

Place talismans on an altar or safe space where it will not be disturbed. Allow it to work for you; I see results within an hour typically but I have many allies so don’t be bothered if things don’t work for you so quickly! Give up to 4 weeks to see real changes; up to 2 weeks to see signs of change. Speak to it regularly. Give things time to manifest. Charge regularly or as needed (I charge mine once every… 2 years on average). 

If you want to include spirits to help you in your talisman, try this method of obtaining a spirit friend from a crystal (modify from the ‘protection’ theme to your own talisman purposes) or this method for making a contract with a spirit.
