The fandom I have chosen for my new tarot deck project is Little Witch Academia!!
People have been asking for an LWA zine and to shake things up a bit I’m going to go with a tarot deck instead of a zine!
I’m still thinking about the project heavily and doing A LOT of reading to make sure everything is perfect but here are my ideas so far:
This will be a kickstarter project and backers will be able to get partial decks (major arcana only), full decks, and bonus merchandise.
All decks will come with a fun box
Cards will already be determined by me before applications go up. Artists will be able to make their own depictions based around the card they’re assigned but they will not be choosing a character for their chosen card
I’m either having 79 artists (1 will do the backing and everyone else will do 1 card) or I’m having 22 artists (everyone will do 2-3 cards)
Now the secret is out! I’m still learning so idk if this will be my next project after PokeWatch or not BUT I want to start it before 2018!
You may have answered this already but do you have tips on how to do witchcraft w limited resources? I have no way to get things like vanilla, or certain spices/herbs and the area I live in doesn't have many of the more common flowers w magical significance (roses for example). I'm also not allowed to light candles or get candles of different colors (But I do light white candles secretly). And ideas?
Honestly I haven’t used vanilla once in my practice. Ingredients that people say are “necessary” may be for them, but that shouldn’t reflect on you or your practices. If you can’t get it, or even have no reason to use it, don’t bother tbh.
When it comes to things like herbs, it is very easy to find replacements for them regarding correspondences. With vanilla, depending on the properties it has, it could be substituted with something else that also has those associations. It might be slightly different energy-wise, but I wouldn’t think too much so, especially if you don’t think so.
At that point it becomes important to work with what you have. Find out what your area does have, maybe even naturally, then find out what you can do with those things, and go from there.
If you are able, spices and herbs are also available for purchase online. Dollar stores even carry a selection of herbs and spices now (at least, the ones in my area do). Bulk Barns also has a great selection, and super cheap too (I just got good sized bags rock salt, pink Himalayan salt, rubbed sage, and I think mint there for less than $4).
However, you also don’t need herbs if you don’t want them. That is just one area of spellwork, and if you have difficulties accessing herbs, go for something you are able to do / have access to.
As for candles, white is pretty much all purpose. LED candles are also an option. There are even websites that allow for the burning of digital candles that can be used too, and there are also some cell phone apps that offer the same thing - tech magic for the win!
Otherwise, I’d suggest using [energy work] or [sigils], which are both low supply and also really discreet.
Here are some posts that may contain more ideas of things you may be able to do, if you so desire:
What if there was an AU where MC was actually a native English speaker who had moved to Korea from England, but knew very little Korean? (She can communicate with via the app due to the built-in live translation software that Seven installed). But how do MC and the RFA deal with the situation individually? (thank you~!!)
it’s always hard to learn a new language, but it’s also very funny to watch xD
I’m trying to learn korean too btw so if there’s any mistake please correct me x’)
- “jagiya, neo neomu gwiyeoptta”
- sometimes Zen uses phrases like that and you have no idea what he’s talking about
- sure he’s helping you in your Korean language but he will never translate that phrase for you
- so you decide to use the app in secret and you’re so embarrassed
- it means “babe, you’re so cute”
- oh wow the Korean language suddenly becomes 100x more interesting to learn
- he’s the best in English and he has no problem becoming your Korean teacher (that means you don’t have to use Seven’s app because Jumin’s all you need)
- he’s so good at it and you can’t help but marvel at how fast you’re picking up things
- but you’re still weak in learning the difference between formal and informal
- so when you thank him, you said “gomawo seon saeng nim”
- “it’s gomawoyo seon saeng nim”
- he’s strict but that’s what makes the learning process better
- he picks up English in university so he knows how to converse with you in English
- but sometimes he just wants to speak to you in full korean because he’s much more comfortable in Korean than English
- so when you want to say anything in Korean, you use Seven’s app
- it’s very accurate and you two speak so animatedly in English and Korean respectively
- it’s funny for others to watch but it does the job
- she needs to know English to become Jumin’s assistant so she’s able to talk to you in English
- but sometimes there’s just certain things that you want to say and you can’t express yourself properly so you decide to use the app
- turns out the app has more “features” which “enhances” what you say and the built-in voice is Seven doing a “cute” voice
- Jaehee immediately hates it
- well, the app doesn’t matter Jaehee can teach you much more better
- doesn’t let you use his app whenever you’re around him
- because why use an app when you have the real deal!
- he does the live translations using a funny voice to translate both Korean and English and you can’t help but laugh
- the other RFA members mock Seven
- is he even teaching you Korean or just having too much fun
- but whatever it is, learning a new language with Seven is definitely the best
