“Ssh. Stop fussing. I’m just braiding your hair.” W/ Hercules or Oak??

You slam the apartment door closed and throw your bag at the kitchen counter. Oak stands up and walks over to you, engulfing you in a hug. “Sit. I’ll get food.”

You nod slightly and sit on the floor in front of the couch, laying back and resting your head on the couch. Oak sets a bowl of popcorn in your lap and sits behind you. “What happened?”

You start telling him about your terrible day, but slowly stop when you feel him playing with your hair. “What the hell are you doing?”

“She. Stop fussing. I’m just braiding your hair.”

You sigh and close your eyes.

Spells of Craft: To Banish and Bind Negativity

This is one of my family spells. I’ve no clue how old it is, but it has been passed down. It is very specific and must be followed as is stated. It was originally written in Latin, but I have supplied the translation for you and the step by step guide. The spell should begin two days before the full moon and should end  when the moon is waning.I do not recommend this spell for a beginner. If you need this to be done and you are knew to all of this then I do recommend that you find someone who is well educated in the practice.


To Banish and Bind Negativity


By the fire of sun,
I scorch this evil to its final death.
By the heartbreaking coldness of the moon,
I freeze out this negativity to its dying core.
By the wonder of the stars,
I cast this entity far across this world and to no end.
With this water I wash away my own darkness.
With this fire I cleanse my being until I am restored to eternal purity.
With this Earth I ground myself to find true balance.
With this Air I breathe new life into my soul and I am reborn.
By the power of light I am renewed.
By the power of darkness I am more the wise.

Latin:
Ab igne solis,
Ego illi aestu adficere malum hoc ultimum mortem.
Per heartbreaking frigus lunae,
Ego de hoc negativity duratus ad mortem core.
Per signum stellarum
Huius saeculi et projeci tantaque rei finis.
Sic tenebrae meae aqua diluere.
Per istum ignem esse meae usque aeterna puritate restituit.
Hoc mihi delebo tellus ut statera.
Hac ego mente mea Air spiro vitam renascitur.
Ego lux in virtute restituit.
Per sum sapiens potestas tenebrarum.

What you will need:
1 Sun Stone
1 Moon Stone
1 Star stone (Your birthstone)
Dried Whole Leaf Basil
White Sage
White Oak Bark (You may need to grind it)
Mortar and Pestle
Anointing Oil
Two bowls
Real spring water from an actual natural body of water
A white piece of string that is at least one foot long.
A Cauldron or something that is safe to burn things in
A Small Black Bag
9 Candles
• 1 Black Candles – Carve a Shield on each candle (for spiritual protection and grounding)
• 4 White Candles – Carve an elemental symbol in each candle (one symbol per candle)
• 1 Gold Candle – Carve the Sun in this candle
• 1 Silver Candle – Carve the Moon in this candle
• 1 Red Candle – Carve an Archer or a Bow and Arrow in this candle (for the will of your strength)

• 1 Blue Candle – Carve two parallel lines in this candle (for truth and clarity)
(All candles may be substituted with white candles, but it is highly recommended that you not substitute them.)

• You will need to anoint each and every candle. Remember to focus on your intent whilst anointing each candle.
You will need to cleanse your stones before you begin.
Then you must charge each stone before using.
Leave the suns tone out in the sun. Put it outside at sunrise and retrieve it prior to sunset. Put the stone in the black bag until the next sunrise. You will do this for three days.
You will also leave your moonstone in the moonlight for three nights as well. Start two days before the next full moon. Remember to put your moonstone outside once night has fallen and in full exposure to the moons light. Retrieve it before the sun ever rises. The sunlight must not shine on your moonstone.
You can place this inside your black bag with the suns tone after you bring the stone in each time.
Take your birthstone and charge it with your own energy. You will need to have absolute focus. Grab your stone in both of your hands and transfer your energy into the stone. You will need to do this for three nights as well. After each session of charging your birthstone, you may put it back inside of your black bag.
You will also take each candle and anoint them with oil and your fill them with your intent for three nights leading up to the full moon.
Now that your stones have been charged and the moon is waning, you are ready to begin the ritual.

Step one: Go outside at evenfall. Draw a circle with sea salt around your working space (however big you need it to be).
Acknowledge that this is sacred space and that you are safe inside this space.
Relax and focus, you may want to meditate for a moment.
Step two: Set up your altar. You should place your gold and silver candle in the back next to each other and at safe distance of each other.
Then place your four white candles next to each other and all in a row in front of the gold and silver candles.
Then take your red and blue candle and place in a row in front of your white candles.
It should be:
Two candles: Gold and Silver
Four candles: All white.
Two candles: Red and Blue.

Step Three:
I will break it down for you so that you may better understand.
By the fire of sun, (Take your sun stone out of the bag and place it on your altar in front of the candles. Take your string and tie one knot it focusing on the intent)
I scorch this evil to its final death. (Light the gold candle)
By the heartbreaking coldness of the moon, (Take your moonstone out of the bag and place it on your altar in front of the candles and next to sun stone. Now tie another knot into the string.)
I freeze out this negativity to its dying core. (Light your silver candle)
By the wonder of the stars, (Take your birthstone out of the bag and place it on the altar. Tie a third knot into the string.)
I cast this entity far across this world and to no end. (Now take your Sage and burn it inside of your cauldron, wafting the smoke up higher and higher)
With this water I wash away my own darkness. (Pour fresh spring water into one of your bowls. Dip your fingers into the bowl and splash some water onto your head and face. Now light your water candle. Tie the fourth knot into the string.)
With this fire I cleanse my being until I am restored to eternal purity. (Focus on the flames that are burning before you and fill them with your energy. Add the basil to your cauldron to burn with the sage. Now light your fire candle. Tie your fifth knot into the string)
With this Earth I ground myself to find true balance. (Pour your white oak into the other bowl. Take some of the oak and sprinkle it on your head and your feet. Sprinkle some in your cauldron. Light your earth candle. Tie your sixth knot into the string.)
With this Air I breathe new life into my soul and I am reborn. (Focus and breathe. Focus on the smell of the herbs that are burning and imagine that they are breathing new life into you. Allow the smoke to surround you. Light your air candle. Tie your seventh knot into the string.)
By the power of light I am renewed. (Tie your eighth knot into the string.)
By the power of darkness I am more the wise. (Tie your ninth knot into the string and set aside.)

(Take any leftover white oak and sprinkle it over the candles, be careful not to put out the flames. Allow for the candles to burn down and remember to rest and focus on your intent in-between the lighting of each candle.)
Once the candles have burned down, thank the elements, the sun, the moon, and the stars.
You will then extinguish the candles – focus on the intent of each candle as you do this.
Take the stones and place them back into your bag – keep this bag in a safe place out of reach to anyone else.
Take your candles and wrap the knotted string around them and bury them in the ground in a dense forest.

I then recommend taking sage and burning it inside your home. When you do this you will need to open either your front door or a window. Close all other entrances/exits in your home. You will then go around to each room inciting a prayer and making sure to get smoke in each corner of the room (including closets). You will start at the room furthest away from your only open exit and you will work your way to the open door or window. Remember that before you leave each room say aloud that there is no darkness or negativity allowed inside of this room, it must leave at once and is never allowed to return, then go on to the next room and continue to do the same.


Kind regards,

Maxiel.

Every Dog Has Its Day [cs ff]

Summary: Killian Jones, owner and operator of Storybrooke’s only doggy daycare, spends most of his days talking to dogs. And quite honestly, he prefers it that way. Or does he? [One-shot | CS modern AU]

A/N: Just a little birthday present for @lifeinahole27! I wish I could see you in person to give you a big hug (seriously, December was far too long ago), but I suppose this will have to do! I love you and I hope you have a fabulous birthday, Sarah!

Monday.

Standing in his fenced yard with the summer sun beating down on his already sweaty t-shirt, Killian holds out his hand and waits for the hyperactive Border Collie in front of him to relinquish the mangled tennis ball.

A muffled yap sounds from the black and white beast’s mouth, and the dog jumps excitedly in the air, running three tight circles around Killian before yapping again, ball still firmly squashed between his teeth.

“Come on, Bean, you know the bloody drill – I can’t very well throw it when you’re still holding onto the damn thing.”

The dog barks at him again and Killian shakes his head, turning his attention to the lumbering, old Golden Retriever who watches the chaos from beneath the shade of a towering oak. An oversized water bowl sits next to her, and all she has to do for a drink is lift her head and flop sideways. “You’re a smart lass, Goldie,” he mutters under his breath, reaching for the battery-powered poop and scooper that hangs from a hook on the fence.

Killian doubts that the people who label his job cute, easy, or any other variety of terribly inaccurate (and frankly insulting) terms, have the slightest idea how many times he picks up dog shite each day.
