pour my tea slowly and with care

sailorcrazypinklady  asked:

So this Alpha/Omega Anakin/Obi-Wan Sith world, what is Padme doing? What's wrong with C3PO? Where are the pair staying, when did they meet Sidious, when did they meet each other? I WANT ALL OF THE STORY!!!! Pretty please?

Staring at the ship slowly rising, Obi-Wan felt a hollowness inside himself that somehow made him feel…

‘I promised Qui-Gon…I promised him… why can’t…’ He jerked to a bit when a hand landed on his elbow, turning to look at Queen Amidala. He hurriedly bowed for her. “Majesty.”

“…I heard their parting words. And yours. You are welcome to stay on Naboo Ser Kenobi, the Naboo owes you that much as do the Gungans.” She offered softly to the now former Jedi.

Obi-Wan swallowed at that. “…Anakin, may I ask where Anakin is?” He questioned, proud that his voice just a bit shaky.

Her face, only powdered compared to the heavy make up the Queen usually wore, softened. “He’s with Sabe and Rabe, they were helping him with clothes…do you know what you’re going to do now?”

Obi-Wan wrapped his arms around himself, looking to the side.

“…I am no longer a Jedi, but I am still Force trained. I am still able to train Anakin. Other then that I don’t know.”

“…You and Anakin are both saviors of Naboo. Would you accept lodgings as my guests then and any comforts we can give?”

The Jedi thing to do would be to say no, to politely reject the offer.

But Obi-Wan was no longer a Jedi.

He had been thrown from the order for insisting that he’d train Anakin.

The young omega closed his eyes for a few moments before bowing for the Queen. “I would gratefully accept the offer until I can care for both myself and Anakin your highness. From the bottom of my heart, thank you.” He whispered.

“Then a home on Naboo you shall have.”


Pouring his tea slowly, Obi-Wan rubbed his nape slowly. His freshest heat was over and he really wanted a decent breakfast.

The last five years had been a mix of hell and heaven after the death of Qui-Gon and being thrown from the order. Obi-Wan had managed to create a life out of the skills he had gained, working to train some of Quarsh Panaka guards with minor force sensitivity. Some of them were getting quite impressive in sensing and Force jumps.

And there was Anakin.

Obi-Wan felt a small smile reluctantly twitch his lips.

The boy was growing to be quite tall for his age, all lanky and eager to train, proving himself to be one hell of an instinctual Force wielder.

He would have made one hell of a Jedi, Obi-Wan was sure of that.

He was also one hell of a mechanic.

‘Talk about the sun and it shall shine.’ Obi-Wan felt his lips twitch in amusement, hearing his students bedroom door open. “Anakin, I’ve made tea but I haven’t gotten to anything else ye-”

Hands braced on either side of the counter, closing Obi-Wan between it and Anakin’s lanky body. “Force you smell good Obi-Wan.” Came the quiet mutter behind Obi-Wan as a nose gently brushed against the nape of his neck, freezing him in place.

And then Anakin froze too before jerking away in shock. “S-Sorry!” He yelped and Obi-Wan made a noise that could have been an apology too before he scurried to his room and firmly closed the door behind him.

‘Well…would you look at that…Anakin’s an alpha.’ Obi-Wan stared into his own bedroom.


“Chancellor Palpatine.” Obi-Wan bowed lightly and felt Anakin follow suit after a few moments, both watching the chancellor carefully. “You wished to speak to us?”

“Yes. I must admit ser Kenobi, I’m surprised you’re still on Naboo but perhaps that is for the best…I have a proposition for both you and your apprentice.” The old man smiled at them and Anakin shifted closer to his Master at the look in the others eyes, a cold sensation crawling up his spine as Obi-Wan himself straightened under the gaze of the beta in front of them as his eyes flashed yellow.

Change was on the air.

Heavy-Duty Banishing Incense

As promised, here is the recipe for the banishment incense @faithandmagick@thegravityofnothing​ and I used during our exorcism.  It stunk thanks to the Asafoetida. It isn’t a subtle thing.  It set off the smoke alarms but damn, did this do the trick. 

Note: please research all ingredients before handling or burning.  I don’t recommend eating this mixture either.  And yes, it is okay if you don’t have all of the ingredients.  Just use what you have.  Check out my Exorcism and Banishment section on my herbs index for some substitution ideas.  Also, as usual, I don’t do measurements.

  • The ashes of a bay leaf with your intent written on it 
    • (I wrote one that said “BE GONE” and @faithandmagick​ wrote Psalms 23:4)
  • A dog tooth
    • (no animal was harmed in the acquiring of this tooth–it is also still alive)
  • Asafoetida
  • Frankincense resin
  • Myrrh resin
  • Garlic powder
  • Onion powder
  • Benzoin resin
  • Mugwort
  • Patchouli leaves
  • Rosemary
  • Clove powder
  • Five Finger Grass
  • Red Sandalwood powder
  • Yarrow
  • Salt

To Make: Crush the ingredients in a mortar and pestle (or however you want to crush them).  Put them in a sealed jar until ready to use.  

To Use:  Be safe, make sure whatever you burn it in is fireproof and heat resistant.  I used a cast-iron cauldron with a handle so I could hold it and walk around with it. 

Ground yourself / do whatever you need to do in order to get yourself in a calm state of mind.

Open all windows and doors, including any closets, depending on the space you are cleansing.  This gives the entity/energy a “door” to escape out of and nowhere to hide. 

(note: We were doing this at night and turned all the lights off save for a few candles because that was when the entity was active.  You don’t have to do this but it just felt right to do)  

Light your charcoal disk (mine isn’t “lit” until a bunch of little crackly-sparks happen) and wait until it is covered in a white ash.  Carefully pour the incense onto the disk (add more as needed) and walk around your space with the smoke.  Let it fill up the room completely–pushing the energy/entity out.  Get the corners especially and any places that feel “creepy”.  

If it helps to speak aloud, then say something like “this is my space, you are not welcome here, please leave” firmly but not aggressively.  Really feel this feeling.  The energy/entity has overstayed their welcome.  Claim your space. 

(note: if you are doing this for someone else, it is really important that you involve them in this process.  They need to feel confident, so encourage them as best as you can to really take back the space that the energy/entity has invaded.  Since the big cauldron was a little intimidating for our home-owner to hold, we had her wave around a dragons’ blood incense stick instead while we handled the cauldron.)

Let the charcoal burn out completely if you can.  If you’re in a rush, slowly pour some water over it to douse the coals.  Just be careful because it can sputter and some stuff might fly out at you.

Close the windows and doors when you feel that the banishment is concluded.

Cleanse and ground yourself afterwards (recommended but not required).  Have a cup of tea, do something to dejunk and reenergize.  If you are working with someone else, talk with them for awhile.

As fate would have it - Chapter 16

It´s been about twelve years since Hiyori last saw Yato. Twelve years since he cut ties with her. With tears in his eyes he explained that it was all for her sake so she could finally start to live a normal life.
What he didn´t know back then was that their ties could never be cut.

Hiyori remembered everything about him, Yukine and the far shore.
At the time Yato and she parted ways Hiyori was already pregnant with a baby girl that grew up knowing nothing about her father.

Chapter 16 - Spy daddy

Also, I’m addressing serious subjects like domestic abuse in this chapter
