Modern AU: The Sun Summoner, The Tailor, The Squaller and The Warrior.

 I am not ruined. I am ruination.

I am a soldier of the Second Army. This is where I belong.

I am the Sun Summoner. It gets dark when I say it does.

I am a warrior. I am nearly as dangerous with a saber, a pistol or my bare hands.

Temptress Moon (风月)Dir. Chen Kaige (陈凯歌). 1996.

Temptress Moon begins on the eve of the fall of the Qing Dynasty, and features the wealthy yet troubled rural Pang family on the verge of decay. The Pang estate is a site of debauchery and rampant opium addiction. Leslie Cheung plays Zhongliang, a former servant for the Pangs who, after a formatively harrowing experience, flees to Shanghai, where he becomes a professional gigolo for a triad gang. Zhongliang is sent back to the labyrinthine estate years later on a task to seduce Pang Ruyi, played by Gong Li, the newly designated head of the Pang family who, in accordance with the family legacy, has grown into an undesirable opium addict; a doomed love affair nevertheless develops between the two. With haunting cinematography by Christopher Doyle, Temptress Moon explores, in an addled state of its own, the gradual ruination of traditional institutions, the confrontation between rural and urban vices, and the continuous return to the site of childhood trauma.

Ingredients:

  • Cayenne pepper
  • Chili powder
  • A few drops of lemon and lime essential oil
  • Red, blue, and/or green glitter
  • A photo of a Supernova, to aid with visualization (optional)
  • 91% rubbing alcohol or vodka
  • Fire safe container
  • Matches 
  • A taglock for your target (a piece of their DNA, their name on paper, a drawing or photo of them, etc.)
  • Fire safety knowledge, common sense, and a well ventilated area (preferably outdoors)

Instructions:

  1. Add the spices, essential oil, and glitter to a fire safe container
  2. Add a small amount of alcohol to the container and mix everything around (a few drops will suffice - the flame isn’t meant to last very long and alcohol burns out fairly quick)
  3. Add the taglock to the container 
  4. Take your container outside and set it on a hard surface away from flammable objects
  5. Use this time to meditate on your intent and visualize the energy of a Supernova engulfing your target - feel free to focus on a printed image of the Supernova if you wish
  6. Light a match, toss it into the container, and visualize your target’s suffering

Warning: do not leave fire unattended and let it burn down completely. Do not touch for a while as it will be very hot.
