non place

uhm so anyways support nb/genderqueer ppl who arent mlm/wlw or “male aligned”/“female aligned” or whatever and feel out of place cause this site is so focused on binary terms even for nb/genderqueer ppl

like… this is 100% why i ID as a trans guy/male aligned nb person for so long cause like… i felt like i had to? but like… im not really? and it kinda hurt cause i felt like i had to pick whether or not i was male aligned or female aligned (or a wlw/mlm) so I basically misgendered myself because i felt like i had to Choose

but like yeah support nb/genderqueer ppl who arent male/female aligned but feel like they gotta choose bc this website is so focused on binary terms that they even need to apply them to ppl who are non binary

so yeah lmao support us

(u don have 2 be nb/genderqueer to rb this)

以心伝心

Dedicated to the one and only @thatreallyhonksmytonk​ (a.k.a @kesskay​ <3)

Inspired by the art style of Mononoke (not ghibli) and Gankutsuou.

以心伝心 (Ishin-denshin) roughly translates to “heart to heart understanding” but literally translates to “what the mind thinks, the heart transmits,”

Ishin-denshin (以心伝心) is a Japanese idiom which denotes a form of interpersonal communication through unspoken mutual understanding.

ishin-denshin refers to a passive form of shared understanding. Ishin-denshin is traditionally perceived by the Japanese as sincere, silent communication via the heart

I just had a dream that I was hanging out in the general vicinity of Nash Grier and he stole my large cowboy hat, which was a very important possession of mine in the dream. I asked him if he took it, but he said no. I knew it was him so obviously I was very upset by this injustice. I went to the police and proved that he had stolen it by showing he had used it as a prop in his newest video. I got my hat back and he got arrested

Note:  This stemmed from my four sentence posts that grew into something else entirely.  Just a lot of filth and smut tbh.  This is unedited and rushed, so warning for the bad smut.  

Summary:  You are honor-bound to do your duty as a princess and marry for the good of the kingdom.  Marriage, like many things in your life, is meant to serve a purpose.  But you know you should be grateful because there are far worse fates than being engaged to marry Prince Taehyung.  ~Royalty AU~

*

Taehyung is the picture of etiquette and genteel charm during your maternal aunt’s harvest ball.  He dances with the appropriate family members and ladies of the court, but remembers to pay special attention to you, his wife-to-be. He maintains the proper distance during customary dances, hands finding their exact position on non-scandalous places on your body as he was taught to do from an early age.  

Ideal, the members of your court believe.  He is ideal.  You and Taehyung are the perfect match, a beautiful couple to join two kingdoms together through marital bliss.  And you don’t disagree with them for a second.  Despite only just having met the prince (whom you were contracted to marry since birth) for the first time last year, he had not faltered with sending you correspondence – a fact that sends your ladies-in-waiting into swooning fits and gossip.  

You can’t count the number of times they beg to read the letters, and each time you tell them on no uncertain terms that the letters are yours and yours alone.  They remain locked in a secret cabinet back at the castle.  So your ladies-in-waiting are left to imagine what Taehyung writes, their guesses sounding inane to your ears when they titter about romance and love at first sight.  

They don’t need to know that in every letter Taehyung writes, in perfect penmanship no less, he describes how he imagines deflowering you on your wedding night.

all the silverflint things from the premiere that i cant get over
  • obviously all that cuteness at the beginning that we all already saw
  • flint and silver huddling side-by-side amidst the chaos of battle
  • silver hesitating to climb down the ladder with madi because he’ll “be the slowest one,” yet as soon as flint starts descending, down he goes
  • after silver goes under, flint’s immediate instinct is to rip off his coat and dive in after him (before thinking better of it)
  • flint staring in terror and grief at the spot in the water where silver fell in
  • “here i must be careful. i have well over 200 men unaccounted for. those who remain, it will be very hard to explain to them why, with all i have to attend to, i choose to stand here hanging onto the fate of just one of them
  • flint literally staking his claim on silver, to madi’s face. “i know you and he have been working together as of late, become friends even. i don’t know what i’m trying to say. perhaps just that, he is my friend, too.”
  • the dejected twitchy pain on flint’s face when it’s not silver they pull out of the longboat
  • that pain immediately manifesting as rage toward billy - “why the fuck didn’t you warn us?!”
  • “we’ve come this far because when flint and i are of the same mind, there’s no obstacle we yet encountered that we cannot surmount. i dont know why that is. he doesn’t know why that is. but it is.” and the absolute wonder on his face as he says that???
  • silver actively wanting to avoid “tempting fate” by creating a power imbalance between him and flint. equal pirate husbands 4ever
  • “a lot has changed since then”
  • “that’d make a lot more sense if i didn’t need him just as badly as he needs me.
  • madi acknowledging the ambiguity of what’s between them - “whatever he is to you. whatever you are to him.”
  • the choked waver of flint’s voice when he reminds billy that he might be the only one left alive that knows where the treasure is
  • the way i lost my chill a long time ago and how its never coming back
Tea/Coffee Readings

How To

You need to find a cup with a wide brim that’s light in colour, find a wide saucer. Pour in lose tea leaves/coffee (you can buy loose tea leaves or rip open a tea bag) into you cup and add boiling water (Do Not add milk) Drink your tea/coffee while thinking about your question, if you dont like tea/coffee take a few sips. When you are finished drinking take the cup in your dominant hand and place your non-dominant handover the top of your cup. Turn the cup tree times in a clockwise direction. Pour any remaining water down the sink. Place the cup upside down on the saucer or a napkin and turn it clockwise three times, turn the cup over look for the leaves that have taken shapes. When you have finished your reading it is customary to turn your cup over, place your index finger on the base of your cup and make a wish

Meanings 
You can twist and turn the cup for new angles to find symbols in your cup, the closer the symbol is to the rim of the cup the sooner it will happen. the further down the longer it will take, tea reading can only predict up to a year. symbols at the bottom of your cup will take almost a whole year to take effect.

Charging Methods

This is no where near all the ways you can charge things so feel free to add to the list or send me other methods. I intend to go back and add to it occasionally.

Edited 12/10/16

Fire

  • Draw it on paper (or something safe to burn) and burn it
  • Draw it on a firework and set it off
  • Carve it into a candle, light it, and let the sigil melt away
  • Place it close to a flame to absorb the light and heat

Air

  • Draw it on wind chimes and hang them up
  • Hang it up somewhere it can blow around in the breeze by a fan
  • Draw it on a balloon, blow the balloon up, and pop it
  • Draw it on a kite and fly it

Water

  • Draw it on something soluble and dissolve it in water
  • Draw it on a rock (or something non-soluble) and place it in running water
  • Draw it with something food safe on a tea bag and drink it (It’s more using a sigil to charge the tea, but whatever)
  • Draw it on yourself then take a shower and let it wash away
  • Draw it in chalk on the sidewalk to wash away in the rain

Earth

  • Draw it on something biodegradable and bury it
  • Transfer energy from previously charged crystals
  • Draw it in the dirt somewhere it will be worn away

Light

  • Place it in the sun or moonlight
  • Draw it with/in something that will disappear: lemon juice on paper, fog in a mirror, etc.
  • Paint it with glow in the dark paint, the light used to charge the paint and its own glow charges the sigil

Technology

  • Place it on/under a device that is plugged in and charging
  • Open the image on your computer and play a video game on top of it
  • Use the sigil as your background or screensaver or just leave it up for a while to be charged by the screen’s light and energy of the computer
  • Open the sigil in a paint or photo editing program, cut it to pieces, and delete them (like you would tear up a piece of paper)
  • Place the sigil on/near speakers and play music (match the music to the intent of the sigil)
  • Post the sigil on social media with the intent that it charge with every like/reblog/thumbs up/etc.

Personal Energy (Mental and Physical)

  • Direct your own personal energies into the sigil (How to)
  • Draw it on yourself or something you have on you as you exercise: dance, run, play sport, etc.
  • Have the sigil on/near you and focus on it as you have sex/masturbate and orgasm
  • Have the sigil on/near you and focus on it while experiencing pain
  • Have the sigil on/near you and focus on it while experiencing extreme emotion
  • Add a drop of blood to the sigil

Other

  • Sing or play an instrument to it
  • Place it in a music box, wind it up and let the music charge it
  • Draw it on paper and tear the paper up
  • Draw the sigil with food or carve it into food and eat it (bonus if it’s baked/cooked/etc.)
  • Draw it on the bottom of your shoes and walk around
  • Draw it on yourself with lotion or makeup and blend it in

The amount of Witches of Color and LGBTQIA Witches that are on Tumblr now makes me so proud!!

Two years ago, when I first started looking into witchcraft and paganism they were practically nonexistent. It was really hard to find.

Not saying that, Non POC or LGBTQ witches weren’t cool, but sometimes as a beginner witch I felt they were not approachable. They were really popular among the community and there was a lot of drama at the time.

Either way, it’s amazing how so many different cultures and ethnic backgrounds of all age groups, sexualities, genders, religions and social classes can come here and share what we have learned, found out, put into existence and teach others.

New, baby witches have a place to feel safe right now and that’s the best thing ever.

Samhain Cinnamon Apple Crisps

Hi everyone, hope you’re all well. I’ve just finished cooking up a batch of my own homemade Apple Crisps and thought I would share this wonderful and super quick recipe with you. Not only is this speedy snack great for Samhain/Halloween,  it contains ingredients used for protection etc, can be used as an offering for your God or Goddess, is a healthy variation to supermarket bought crisps AND is suitable for vegans/vegetarians, did I already mention they are super quick to make? Without further ado, let’s get started!

You will need:

  • 1 whole apple.
  • A sprinkle of cinnamon.
  • A dash of brown sugar. ( You can use white sugar but I prefer brown as it produces a lovely thick syrup texture and has a gorgeous coffee flavouring to it ).

How to make:

  • Cut your apple into thin slices. Not too thin or they will burn and not to thick or they won’t turn into crisps!
  • Line a baking tray with non-stick baking paper.
  • Place your apple slices onto your tray and start to add your toppings. Use as much as you wish.
  • Cook your apple slices in the oven on gas mark 4/ 180°C / 350°F for fifteen minutes. ( A few of my crisps did burn, so depending on how thin you cut your apple and how powerful your oven is, feel free to change the time and settings ).

Ingredients used in Witchcraft:

  • Cinnamon: Associated with the elements of fire and the sun. Magikal uses are - good luck, love, money, passion, peace, prosperity, protection, psychic development, success and wisdom.
  • Apples: Scared to many Goddessses including Aphrodite. Magikal uses are - fidelity, fertility, marriage, beauty, vanity,wisdom, the soul, the afterlife and immortality.
  • Brown Sugar: Healing, love and sweetness.

That’s all there is to it! I hope you enjoyed this recipe and your finished product. Please do not remove the source and have a safe, happy and blessed Samhain. Let me know how your Apple Crisps turn out!
