The sun was already shining high in the sky when your eyes fluttered open. The overwhelming heat of the day had your shirt soaked to your skin. You groaned, reaching over to chug the glass of water on the table next to you. But the room temperature water wasn’t enough to satisfy your thirst. “It’s so fucking hot.” you mumbled as you slid off your mattress. The sheets were crumpled in a pile on the floor, somehow the 3 of you managed to kick them off the bed in your sleep. 

You padded down the hallway and the familiar sounds of your boyfriends arguing rang through your ears. Yoongi and Hoseok were on opposite sides of the spectrum. Fire and ice. Water and oil. But there was something about you that brought the two of them together.

Hoseok’s eyes immediately fell onto yours as you entered the living room, “Tell Yoongi you want to go to the beach today. He’s being a lazy ass and won’t let us go.”

You chuckled, “The beach does sound nice, Hobi. But it’s probably going to be packed.” you squeezed his shoulder gently as you made your way to the fridge and out of the corner of your eye you could see him pouting. Clearly not happy that you were siding with Yoongi in this democratic household.

“See, I told you she wouldn’t want to go.” Yoongi teased as he laid back down on the floor, a gummy smile spread across his glistening face. He stared at you with mischief in his eyes, but the thought of intertwining limbs in this heat sounded like the worst possible idea, no matter how hard he made you cum.

You opened the door to the freezer, finding sweet relief in the blast of cool air rushing towards your skin. It was days like this when you cursed your boyfriends for letting them talk you into this place. Your apartment was beautiful, and you loved it, but it didn’t have A/C. So every summer the three of you wandered across the apartment in various states of undress, hoping that the lack of clothing encasing your skin will offer relief.

Hints and tips for meth smokers!!


Not much to say here, other than… don’t load huge bowls. As by loading more you’re more likely to not spread it around enough and end up with a fat puddle boiling and burning up your drugs. Load a moderately small bowl, spread it around good, and smoke that shit son. If you get to the end of the bowl and don’t think you’re high enough, load another one.


Anyways, first things first. “Cutting,” or at least that’s what I’ve always heard it refered to, and learned it that way. The act of melting down and allowing your meth to recrystalize all over in the bowl of the pipe. (While it is recrystalizing, roll that puddle around and spread it out. Do this inbetween hits also.) Supposedly ment to burn off cuts and impurities, however this is bullshit. Most cuts and practically all impurities melt right down and recrystalize in with the meth. Burning off while you smoke, and going into your lungs. Don’t worry, this stuff is good for you. It’ll grow some hair on your chest. Although “cutting” doesn’t burn off any impurities or cuts, it does allow you to make the bowl last longer. By spreading it around while it recrystalizes, you will in turn not heat it all at once and have more control over it. You’re less likely to burn up and destroy a bunch of meth smoking a thin puddle. Whereas trying to smoke a fat puddle will waste meth. Longer lasting bowls equal more smoke and more high.

There is one exception to this that I’ve found so far, which is… MSM. If you know what you’re doing, you CAN burn off most of it and be left with cleaner dope to smoke. You know sometimes when you take that first hit, and exhale barely any smoke? That was mostly MSM. Sadly though I have no clue how to explain the process through which you burn it off. But don’t loose hope now, because you CAN burn it off.


Don’t use one of those fancy shmancy torch lighters unless you know what you’re doing. They burn too hot, and will destroy your drugs if you’re not careful. This is not good, you want to just vaporize them and suck them into your lungs. Not burn them up into nothing. A regular Bic lighter works best, with Crickets coming in second. But be forwarned, lighters get really fucking hot when you keep them lit for those long hits so common with meth. They will burn you and hurt you, possibly making you jerk or twitch… only to end up throwing a frail glass pipe accross the room. Be careful with lighters kids.

Needle Lighters
The point of the needle lighters is to force the gas(which has been turned way down) through the smaller hole of the needle, and lighting it up on top. Makes for a tinny tiny not so hot flame which is good for smokin’ dope. And having the needle somewhat long prevents the crappy plastic lighter(which most adjustable ones are) from melting itself and dying.

Heating and smoking

The flame of your lighter should never be touching the glass. If it’s close, it’s probably too close. Getting too close means you’re heating it too much, this destroys drugs. Not good. And it blackens up the pipe, which is a pain in the ass to clean and hard to see through.

Don’t apply constant heat, as this will also get it too hot and destroy drugs. Again, not a good thing. Heat it until it’s smoking good and pull flame away. When the smoke starts thinning, reapply flame until it’s smoking good again.

Roll it side to side slightly while heating to help prevent overheating one spot and destroying product. You just want a nice smoking puddle, not a boiling one.

When coming to the end of your hit, after you’ve stopped heating it and the smoke is again starting to thin. But you don’t have that much breath left to warrent reheating and getting it smoking good again. Carb it, or put your finger over the carb(hole on top of the bowl) to stop the airflow and allow more vapor to condense inside. Then once a little has condensed, release the carb and continue with the inhale. Not too fast, not too slow though. A slow tapping kind of action works best. Carb for a second, uncarb and inhale, carb for a second, uncarb and inhale, etc…

Before smoking the stem, remelt that shit down and let it recrystalize. Or if you have enough residue, melt it down and let it drip down into the bowl to recrystalize. While melting, plug the end of the stem with your finger to prevent vapor from escaping.

Hold the pipe with the end of the tube BEHIND your teeth. Although not the sole cause of tooth decay/loss, it sure as hell doesn’t help anything to be sucking those water hungry meth vapors past your chompers. Holding the pipe on your lips will most likely result in some cute little dried out dead spots, which will also show up on your tongue if you get that in the way. So don’t use your tongue as a valve to restrict airflow by plugging part of the tube. Yes it does slow down the hit, and allow for a bigger hit. But it fucks your tongue up pretty bad for a day or two.

Nice slow inhalation with micropuffing action seems to work best. Don’t pause and hold your hit whiling searching for another spot to smoke because you have a little breath left. Don’t hold your hit period. By the time you’re done taking those long ass hits, most of what you’re going to get out of the smoke has already been absorbed. Holding it longer may get you a little more out of it, but it’s doing way more damage to your lungs in the process.

Getting the most out of it

If you’re worried about wasting smoke, share it with a boyfriend/girlfriend via mouth to mouth action. It doesn’t have to take forever like a hit off the pipe. Quick and smooth works fine. Or, if you have no one to share with you could exhale into a ballon. And take a few more hits off it, inhaling and exhaling into the ballon. With breaths of fresh air inbetween hits of course.

Then if you’re a real stickler, you can save that balloon. Since it has all them little water droplets from your breath that have absorbed a little vapor. Or if you have nice dry breath, the balloon may have a coating of residue. Just like the stem of your pipe. Get that stuff wet, and put it in with your Kool Aid/Juice/Water, or just lick it if you’d like. Or I suppose you could try to scrape it and load another bowl…

Cleaning the pipe

So you’ve not been listening to me and burnt up some of your drugs smoking, and in the process blackened the fuck out of the bottom of your pipe. Good job dumby. Now you have a few options, you can either just not care and wipe it off your your shirt or pants. Or, you can have a semi-damp rag handy. Preferably warm or room temperature water. If you use cold water you run the risk of busting the pipe. Or you can learn how to smoke correctly and never deal with soot again.

Now for cleaning that brown/black residue left inside after you’ve gone through a sizable amount of meth. Again you have a few options.
You can either;

a) Throw your pipe away and make a new one.
Now if you know how to blow your own pipes option a is pretty damn easy, just blow a new one and sell the old one to another tweaker for $5.

b) Bust out the propane torch and burn it out.
If you have a propane torch, no acetone, and no knowledge on blowing pipes then option b is your best bet. But be forwarned, don’t heat your pipe too much because it will get soft and start to deform if you heat it too long. And don’t do this outside on a cool night, hot glass needs to be cooled slowly. Exposing it to the cold night air while it’s glowing hot will break it. Inside, preferably warm room.

c) Use a solvent like acetone and let it soak for a while, then rinse.
Just fill the bowl with a little acetone, let it soak for a while, empty and rinse. Repeat if neccessary. Do in a well ventilated area, not in the closet with the doors shut

Does anyone have some tips for surviving the summer heat? Its like the one time a year that I might actually get sensory overload but I never know how to handle it. :(

Oh goodness, I feel your pain, anon! Temperature regulation is one of my most messed-up sensory systems, so I’m constantly on the lookout for some ideas to make it better. I’ll talk about some of the things that have helped me get through summers in the southwestern US (land of heat and melting, honestly):

  • If you have air conditioning, use it. I know it’s good to try and conserve energy, especially in summertime, but taking care of yourself is also important. You can always turn off the air when you aren’t at home (but when you return home, only set it to the temperature you want it at in the end - setting it colder won’t make it cool off any faster).
  • If you don’t have air conditioning, a good trick is to put a bowl of water in front of a fan. The evaporation of the water + the air from the fan helps cool off a room more than just the fan itself, and can help cool off more than just the area right in front of a fan where you can feel the air moving.
  • Also check out what places around you are open during the hottest part of the day that have AC - the library and the mall are good places like this, because hanging out for long periods of time in these places is generally expected and doesn’t cost anything (unless you buy something while you’re at the mall).
  • Drink plenty of water! If you struggle to remember, try an app like Plant Nanny (which I believe is available on both Android and iPhone). You pick a cute little plant, and then each time you drink water you tell the app and it helps your plant grow. Because of this app I’ve also learned to keep track of when I should have finished my next bottle of water - if I get up around 7am, I should drink a full bottle of water by 11, another by 3, and another by 7pm (and some after that as well, but it doesn’t have to be a full bottle, just whatever I need to feel hydrated). I use an uninsulated water bottle because I prefer room temperature water, but if you like ice cold water, a Hydro Flask could help - it keeps water super cold for a long time.
  • Putting a towel or a pillowcase in the freezer to then put on your pillow drape over the back of your neck can really help. When your face and neck are cool, it can trick the rest of your body into feeling cool as well.
  • If possible, sitting on floors or non-cushioned chairs can help keep you cooler - couches, beds, and other soft things form to your body and trap heat close to you. You could try the freezer trick with a sheet and then drape that over a couch, but for me it’s generally easier to just sit on the floor instead.
  • Look for loose, flowy clothing made of cotton, if you’re able to wear that sort of thing. The looseness allows air to flow around you more easily, and cotton is light and dries more quickly than many artificial fabrics.

Okay, I think that’s the biggest things for what helps me get through summer. If any of our followers have any other ideas, please let us know!

Foodie Friday: Angel Food Cake with Elderflower Syrup

Image and Recipe Credit to

Warning: Please use caution whenever harvesting wild flowers, fruits, or herbs, and do not consume them unless you are absolutely certain that they are edible and safe. If there is even the slightest bit of doubt, please resort to purchasing the ingredient in a store or local apothecary for safety’s sake. 

Ingredients For Syrup:
-4 cups water
-4 cups sugar
-20 elderflower heads
-Skin and juice of 2 lemons

Ingredients for Cake:
-1 cup sifted cake flour
-1.5 cups superfine (castor) sugar
-14 large egg whites (at room temperature)
-1 tbsp room temperature water
-½ tsp salt
-1.5 tsp cream of tartar
-2 tsp pure vanilla extract


1. In a heavy saucepan, combine water and sugar and bring to a simmer over high heat, stirring occasionally until simple syrup is dissolved. Remove from heat and set aside.

2. Remove the elderflower heads from their stems, discarding the stems and placing the heads in a large heat-safe bowl. Add lemon skin and juice to bowl and pour simple syrup into bowl, stirring to combine.

3. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap or a towel and allow to sit at room temperature for at least 2 days and up to 4 days. Strain syrup through cheesecloth-lined sieve and discard solids. Syrup can be stored in an airtight container for several weeks.


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. With a fine sieve, sift together flour and ¾ cups sugar four times.

2. In the bowl of a stand mixer on medium speed, beat together egg whites and water until foamy. Add salt, cream of tartar, and vanilla; beat until soft peaks form. Increase speed to medium-high and sprinkle in remaining sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time. Beat until stiff but not dry. 

3. Transfer to a large bowl. In six additions, sift dry ingredients over meringue, folding in quickly but gently.

4. Pour batter into an ungreased 10-inch tube pan with removable bottom. Smooth top with an offset spatula. Run a knife through batter to release air bubbles. Bake for 35 - 40 minutes, until golden brown and springy to touch.

5. Invert pan on its legs or over the neck of a glass bottle and let cool completely, about an hour. Carefully run a long offset spatula or knife around the inner and outer perimeter of the pan to release cake. Place on a plate, bottom side up; cover with plastic wrap until ready to use.

9. Serve each slice with some elderflower syrup poured around the base, and whipped cream and berries on top.

Magical Ingredient!

Many of us are at least somewhat familiar with the iconic scene from Monty Python and the Holy Grail in which French soldiers throw insults at King Arthur. “Your mother was a hamster, and your father smelt of elderberries!”

Elderberry was and continues to be a favorite food in Europe and in certain areas of the United States, in varying forms from floral syrups and fried flowers to fermented elderberry wines (and elderberry preserves are simply divine when spread over buttered toast!). The elder tree, however, holds some long-standing symbolism when it comes to witchcraft and magic!

Historically speaking, elder is one of those trees that has straddled the line between a positive symbol and a negative symbol, depending upon what side of the line you were viewing it from - much like how yew was often associated with death from a Christian viewpoint but associated with protection and flexibility from a Norse perspective. In the case of elder, however, it had much more to do with the belief that elder trees were more often than not inhabited by spirits (comparable to the belief that there are spirits that inhabit Jericho roses).

In Celtic lore, elder has a particular link to the fae, as it was considered to be a guardian tree. Faeries would gather about the tree, and if one were to sleep beneath the elder’s branches, she would dream of the faerie realm of Tir na nOg. In pre-Christian Ireland, elder was a sacred tree held to such a high esteem that it was forbidden to break its twigs.

Perhaps one of the most well known legends regarding elder is the Danish Hyldemor, or Elder-Mother. The Elder-Mother was a spirit who lived within the tree who was respected for her healing and nurturing capabilities. Before approaching the tree to harvest the berries, flowers, or wood, it was a common practice to ask her permission with the promise of returning the favor in the next life: “Old Woman, give me some of thy wood and I will give thee some of mine when I grow into a tree.”

With the spread of Christianity, the tree’s association with spirits and faeries would take a dark turn, and elder would go from being a sacred, positive tree to being synonymous with evil and the devil. The Elder-Mother’s rather kind demeanor was twisted into that of a witch. Its red sap and hunched shape evoked the image of a hunched old witch who would bleed when cut, to English eyes. In Ireland, the tree went from being a guardian of Otherworld to being a tree whose branches were cut by witches and used as magic horses.

Furthermore, elder took a darker turn when (much like how the tomato was once associated with the forbidden fruit in Genesis) Christian legends associated elder with the crucifix and Judas’ suicide, as reflected in the carol of the Twelve Apostles:

The twelve apostles they were standing by,
Their roots in the river, and their leaves in the sky,
The beasts all thrive wherever they be.
But Judas was a-hunged on an elder tree.

Not everywhere in the British Isles was the tree feared, though, and it maintained some of its magical qualities. In Scotland, it was believed that if you stood under an elder tree during Samhain, you could witness the faery host riding by, and elderberries harvested on Midsummer’s Eve would confer magic powers. And in the Isle of Man, elder continued to be a home for elves and fae, which protected against witches and malevolent spirits if it grew just outside the front door.

Again in Scotland, elder would even have a positive association in Christian communities, as its twigs would be fashioned into a cross and hung over stables and barns to ward off evil spirits and hearse drivers would use elder-handled whips to banish negative influences.

Today, elder is regaining its positive associations thanks in part to its prolific production of flowers and fruits and in part to its place in ancient Celtic lore. It is a popular addition to Beltane floral rites, and its healing properties are being brought back into home remedies. For instance, the green sticks were said to be able to cure warts when rubbed on the affliction and then burnt, and elder twigs were believed to banish the evil spirits which caused toothaches. Today, its berries and flowers could be used to help alleviate cold and flu symptoms in herbal remedies.

Its associations with the fae make elder a wonderful tree for inviting faeries into the garden, or for honoring them on an altar with elderflower decorations and offerings. In kitchen magic, elderberry preserves, elderflower syrup and cordials, elderflower teas, et cetera, all can bring energies of prosperity and health to food. In addition, elder foods can be used as offerings or can be cooked and eaten as a way of connecting more with the fae or with one’s femininity.

Since elder has a strong association with banishing negative influence, elderflower infusions can be used as a liquid for asperging. Its wood and twigs can be fashioned into charms or amulets for various spells, its flowers and berries added to jars and bags, and the tree can be kissed or hugged to invite good fortune (if you’re not afraid of getting some strange looks from passerby, of course)!

Consider the role elder may play in your life, and how its sweet berries and lovely flowers can bring health and positive energy into your kitchen!

May all your meals be blessed! )O(

A Commutual Contract

After a terrifying experience during which Lance, seemingly, dies, Keith is haunted by horrible nightmares of holding his comrade in his arms while he took his final breath. To the point where he can’t sleep unless he knows for absolute certain that Lance is alive.

And while the attention is surprising, Lance doesn’t really have a problem with Keith checking up on him. Or the fact that Keith only seems totally comforted when he can cuddle Lance close and hear his heart beat. After all, there’s nothing wrong with two bros cuddling. It doesn’t MEAN anything. Or, at least, that’s what Lance keeps telling himself.

Chapter 2

Lance was a dreamer. Both while he slept as well as during the day. It was an odd morning if he awoke without even some feeling of where his head had been the night before. Which was why waking up as he was—like he’d just risen from a cold, dark cave where nothing at all of consequence had happened—struck him as being odd, even if the notion was vague and floating in the back of his lagging thoughts.

Mostly, he just felt lethargic. As if he’d been recently submerged in day-old, room-temperature water. And while this might startle some people, he’d been in the healing pod enough times to know the familiar feeling, as well as dread the nausea that accompanied leaving it. How long had he been in for this time? And how long had it been since he’d eaten?

Oh the hunger, that was going to be the worst.

His brain wanted to wake up—he was “conscious"—but his body wasn’t ready yet. Still, he had enough strength to open his eyes just a slit, even if the rest of him was so heavy that lifting a single finger seemed impossible.

He had only a few ticks to peer through the pod before his lids would fall shut again. His vision was bleary, but he tried to make out all that he could. The room was bright with that stale, hazy chill the castle was known for. But inside that, he could make out the silhouettes of a few figures. They stood before the pod, likely staring in.

Lance couldn’t see well enough to make out their expressions, but he assumed they were ones of concern. Which he felt bad about. No one needed to be worrying over him, not when there were Galra to beat to a pulp. Still, he supposed that was out of his control for the time being. Once he was out though, he’d be sure to make it clear just how alright he was. For all his attention seeking (yes, he knew perfectly well he did it), concern wasn’t something he liked having aimed his way.

He was fine, just like always. There were plenty of better places his friends could put their focus.

Hi! So, I asked someone to take care of my plants while I was away for 3 weeks, and she forgot to water two of them. They are still just about alive, but barely and could really use some help. Do you have any spells/charms/whatever to help me out?

[What’s Wrong With Your Plants?] - a list of plant symptoms and tips for solutions.

Write some sigils on their pots, or on paper that you tear up and dissolve in water, then water them with charged (room temperature) moon water.

Place some charged crystals in the top of their soil - clear quartz or most green crystals would be beneficial.

You could try speaking to the spirit of the plant itself to give it encouragement.

Focus some healing energy into it while reciting a chant to encourage recovery and growth.



I’d suggest doing some further research for actual gardening tips that could help as well. Depending on the plant and what is wrong with it, you may need to do a variety of different mundane things to encourage it back to the healthy side of life. 

Perhaps @spiritvexer would have some advice for you too, depending on the type of plant?

Good luck!

My grandmother judges anyone that drinks room temperature water. That shit is funny every time because it’s like she can’t fathom how someone could willingly turn down ice cold water.

In metric, one milliliter of water occupies one cubic centimeter, weighs one gram, and requires one calorie of energy to heat up by one degree centigrade—which is 1 percent of the difference between its freezing point and its boiling point. An amount of hydrogen weighing the same amount has exactly one mole of atoms in it. Whereas in the American system, the answer to “How much energy does it take to boil a room-temperature gallon of water?” is “Go fuck yourself,” because you can’t directly relate any of those quantities.

Attract a New Friend Spell

You will need:

  • Season of spring
  • Mini yellow rose bush, flowering
  • Bottle of club soda, room temperature
  • Water
  • Shears

Choose your plant carefully. It can be purchased from a local nursery or grocery store. If there are many plants available, take time considering each one and buy the one that “speaks” to you and that you find especially appealing. You don’t have to know why you find it especially appealing, just that you do.

Take it home, find a great spot for it, and water as needed. When watering, add a few drops of club soda to help your plant thrive. Once the plant has acclimated to its new home, take a cutting and place it in a glass of water.

Take a second bloom and carefully remove four petals. Say: a petal alone does not a flower make, your beauty does not erode if your petals break. Now as beauty enters the air, a seed is planted in a friend unaware.

Take the petals in your hand and go out for a walk. Drop one, and change the direction you were walking. Do this three times and each time you change direction, drop another petal.

By the time your cutting has established roots of its own and is ready to be planted, you will have attracted a new friend. Once the relationship has taken root give this new yellow rose plant to your friend.

This spell can also be completed with a pink rose plant to attract a romantic partner, or a red rose plant to attract a passionate lover.

Abies nordmanniana by peralta (5k / T) - This was the first haikyuu!! fanfic I read so it has a special place in my heart.  Oikawa steals his hoodies every year just before winter starts, and this year it’s too hard for Iwaizumi to pretend he doesn’t like it.

How Icarus fell in Love with the Sun by stukkkiii (49k / M)  - Placed on the same universe as “Fake Wedding March.”  Oikawa has to find a fiance within a week or he has to leave Japan and thus his successful career and his friends. Obviously the best idea is to knock on his new neighbor’s door at 11 pm and ask, “Will you marry me?”

Sing for me by starlitcities (9k / nsfw) -  The last place Oikawa thought he would end up in would be a dingy bar covered in sweaty clothes and forced to stand around sweaty people; but here he is, standing under soft purple and red lights, body close to overheating and nothing to combat the exhaustion but a room temperature bottle of water.   

Shiver by Yuu-chi (16k / T) -  Oikawa was always the brave one. Hajime just followed two paces behind.

Synaisthesis by Tobyolo (John_Hancocked) (14k / T) - I loved the characterization and songs the author recommended. For Oikawa Tooru, life is an abstract painting, with colours swirling together in his vision, dotting the world around him. When asked about his view of the world, Tooru can only call himself a modern Van Gogh.For Oikawa Tooru, school is a backdrop of oranges, yellows and pinks, coupled with the occasional green, high pitched wail of a passing child. It is a happy, joyous, bright world.For Oikawa Tooru, the colour blue is a rarity.

we shine like diamonds by whitemiists (26k / T) - I couldn’t stop reading even that I was in the middle of psychology class. Oikawa is nine when he first hears the word. The boys on the playground whisper it like it’s dirty, like the way they daringly mutter the word fuck and then look over their shoulders to check their parents hadn’t heard.“You know Abe-kun from class?” they snicker, hands cupped around their mouths like they’re passing along a filthy secret. “I hear his older brother is… gay.”


Alexithymia by peppersnot (28k / T) - Student ID cards can be stolen, said a voice at the back of his head. Maybe he really should start locking the front door. At least at night. 

Bury Us Alive by nekoma (20k / M) - Prequel of “You Are an Angel, I Am an Astronaut”. Chasing. That was the word he was looking for. He felt like he was always chasing after Kuroo, and sometimes, times like this, he felt like his best friend was completely out of reach.
