Kinda responding to the person who asked where does the yooran ship come from ??? At least for me it started w one of yoosungs bad ends because Saeran ordering Yoosung around with a collar = hot. I shamelessly made so many nsfw fanart from this (kinda problematic?) relationship oh god But then it rly evolved to post secret ending 02 fluff because one does not survive with only angst in their lives
i feel like the bad ending has an…interesting kind if dynamic between them.
my next fic (hopefully if i ever get round to it) is gonna be partly based on the bad end… but only partly. i don’t really know how to explain it without giving too much away, but i’m gonna have to be super careful with how i write it
I think one of the fun things about both rping and writing fan fiction is getting to flesh the characters out even more than they are canonically. So… you can give them nervous habits, hobbies… I love it.
I like to think that Yoosung is a closet Disney fan who loves to sing the songs at the top of his lungs.
Post-secret end Saeran is an artist to me. I follow the same sweet tooth and clouds thing everyone else does, but I also like to have him love the night sky and constellations too… and an interest in the mythology behind them. Why? No idea. Just do.
I almost aggressively headcanon that Seven is either genderfluid and just doesn’t realize it yet or that he really really really loves crossdressing, but I prefer the former. Also I fully support the notion that he teases Yoosung so much bc he has the hugest crush on him.
Jumin is autistic to me (a person with autism), which is partly why his emotions are hard for him to comprehend. The constant fiddling with his sleeve is a stim in my world.
I don’t really have many behind Zen or Jaehee yet because I haven’t focused on them but… know I also think everyone is bi. ^^
ok so Ron says he doesn’t like spiders because when he was 3 the twins turned his teddy bear into a spider right? the twins are only 2 years older than Ron, which means they were FIVE YEARS OLD when they did this and I’m just??????? like they were five and they didn’t even have WANDS and they managed to deliberately turn a bear into a spider???? even if they managed to steal a wand from their siblings or parents that’s a really tricky bit of transfiguration and at age five most kids are just doing uncontrolled magic….. like TBH in my opinion Fred and George had more innate talent than the trio combined but they just wanted to chill and do pranks and I respect tf out of that
I really liked your awkward Hanzo comics~ Could you make one where McCree compliments his hair (particularly the white little hair-wings part thing) and the next day someone (Genji? Symm?) finds him with a little smile trying extra hard to make them perfect? (not in a snooty/prideful way. more of a "i hope they look good today maybe he'll talk to me again" way) I am not sure if I'm allowed to make requests/suggestions so i hope this does not come off as pushy~ '3' Welp, 25 letters left so this -
im super glad you liked it omg thank yOU!!! i am 1000% down for requests & suggestions hehe there u go!!!

Here’s some things I wish someone told me when I was first starting out
You’re gonna find a lot of sources that are Wiccan. So if you don’t want to follow Wicca, it might be harder to find things that talk from a non- Wiccan perspective. This is not the only perspective. I encourage you even if you are wanting to follow Wicca to seek out specifically non-Wiccan sources to get a different view point. (nothing against Wicca here; I just think it’s healthy to get differing opinions)
It’s still witchcraft even if it doesn’t look like what books/Internets witchcraft looks like. Remember that:
Everyone has a different way of doing things and your craft will never ever be the same as anyone else’s.
The people posting about what witchcraft they’ve done are most of the time showing a perfected version of it. You are just starting out. You should not hold yourself up to the standards of people who have had more time and practice.
It’s actually good that it doesn’t look like anyone else’s because that means that it’s entirely your own.
I know it can feel very daunting first getting involved in witchcraft because there is so much to learn. Trust me, you cannot learn everything, and that is okay.
Take things step by step. Find something that really excites you. For example, say you are really interested in deity worship. Focus on just that first. Research different deities and meditate on the ones that interest you. Once you feel like you’ve learned enough (you don’t have to be an expert by any means, just to a point where you feel like you have your foot in the door) then you can move on to something else. You don’t have to do it this way, but I found it helped me narrow things down.
The idea that “if you don’t know what your doing with witchcraft it can backfire” is a myth. Don’t be afraid to explore, learn new things. That being said, I wouldn’t recommend doing anything outside your skill level either. Maybe save the big deal curses for when you have a good grasp on them. Listen to your intuition on this one, if you feel like something you’re doing is too much for you, don’t do it right away, but work your way up. Don’t give up on it, either. Like I said, if you feel like you don’t have the ability to do something, get to a point where you do.
You will have thoughts like “this won’t work” “you’re being stupid” “it’s just some *conventionally useless item*, that can’t do ANYTHING” this is okay. Any intrusive thoughts that tell you it’s not going to work are fine, especially if you are mentally ill. It does not mean your magic looses it’s power because you had an intrusive thought. Yes, the best way to make your magic work is to believe it will work, but intrusive thoughts will not automatically stop the magic from working. Just try your best to overcome them, whatever technique you have for that will work fine. I always use my inner voice to talk back to my intrusive thoughts and say something like “What? That doesn’t even make sense! You’re being ridiculous, random voice in my head that has no attachment to me.” and try to ignore it. Your mental illness does not make you a less powerful of a witch, remember that.
You are much more powerful than you realize. Own this. Be empowered by it.
You don’t have to have a whole bunch of extravagant altars and read your tarot cards and meditate every day to be considered a ‘real’ witch. You do magic without even realizing it sometimes. It’s sometimes hard to do anything big because of busy schedules/low spoons/being closeted or whatever. Try and incorporate little things in your daily routine. I did this by Stirring my tea clockwise and focusing on the cup, while repeating “this tea will improve my day” in my head. It works great for practicing putting your intent in things, focusing your energy, and it can even work if you live in an unfriendly witch household! Get creative with the little things you can do everyday. And even if you can’t do those things sometimes, don’t worry about it!
Be very careful about cultural appropriation in your practice. It can get very dicey as to what is offensive to include in your practice and what is not. I can tell you straight up right now that anything taken from a Native American culture is not okay to incorporate in your practice. A very popular thing that’s taken from Native American culture is smudging. Don’t smudge. There are many alternatives to this. That being said, some things are ok to take from other cultures because those cultures aren’t practiced by living people/are part of a culture or religion that is open to outsiders taking it. Don’t bat yourself up for doing something then finding out it was offensive, because when you recognize it then take necessary steps to fix it, that’s you growing as a person and is a positive change. If you aren’t sure if what your doing is cultural appropriation, ask yourself:
Is what I’m doing practiced by a group of people today? if yes, you’re in the danger zone, but it does not necessarily mean it is appropriation
Is the religion that it comes from a closed or open religion? (this means is it ok for outsiders, people who do not follow the religion, to practice it. example-Judaism=closed, wicca=open) If closed, it’s probably appropriation.
Am I apart of a race that has a history of oppressing this group of people? If yes, you might want to be cautious about it.
If it is deity related- Do the deities in question give me permission? if no, then definitely do not do it.
What would a person from that religion/culture think if they saw me doing this? If they would not like it, it might not be okay.
Is this from my heritage/ancestral background? Don’t worry too much if the answer is no but you passed most of the other questions, This one is mostly because if you grew up in a Jewish/Catholic/Muslim/other closed religion household, wanting to incorporate that in your practice is ok.
You do not have to be religious to practice witchcraft. Your craft can exclude deity work of any kind.
Don’t be afraid to ask what you feel are stupid questions. If your really scared, google is a very handy tool and most blogs have that anon option for a reason. :p
Mmk, spoons are low. Feel free to add any advice you think I’m missing. I really hope this helps someone!
