CIV 1: Excuse me, but… are you… are you Superman?

CLARK: Yep.

Rune Magick

Hey, all! So today I’m going to teach you about runes and how to use them in everyday magick. There are, of course, many different types of runes but for this, we are talking about Germanic runes. 

So, first off I’ll tell you a little about what runes are. Runes are a form of script, dating all the way back to 150 AD. They were eventually replaced by the Latin alphabet somewhere around 700 AD. Because they are so ancient, some witches use them not only as a secret script but also in their magickal workings. 

You might be asking, “Well how do I do that? Wouldn’t that be like using the letter A?” Well, yes and no. I have no doubt someone could find a way to use the Latin alphabet for magick, but in this case, runes are more… symbolic I guess? Take the rune peorth for example (see “p” above). It resembles a cup lying on its side. When the opening points to the right, it represents birth and beginnings. When the opening points to the left, it represents death or endings.

Each rune symbolizes a specific thing or idea. Say, for example, you wanted a quick charm for safe travels. You could draw Raidho ® somewhere on your person as it is the rune of travel. To use rune magick simply draw, paint, or inscribe it where you want to use it. You can also “draw” it in the air or on an object/person with your energy. 

 Below is a list of all the runes, their names, and their uses/meanings (order is from left to right).

One thing bothers me with the script: it says Mary climbed her way to CAM's office because Sherlock saw a curtain but here never was one anywhere? I like, spent years thinking Mary had been invited and had been waiting for them in his seat, hence the perfume and that everything in HLV had been a set-up to make her the weakest link of pressure points (+TShirt joke). I mean, how did she know CAM would be there if Sherlock himself hadn't known? Have I overthought all this or there's more at play?

(referencing the HLV script released here)

Hi Lovely!

Yeah, I haven’t read the script version yet, but from what I understand, it “reads like a terrible fanfic” (paraphrasing one of my followers who came to my inbox to bitch with me about it) and apparently is lying when it states it’s the “final” script.

I personally always thought that Janine let Mary in or some sort of plan with Mary was made (it was kind of being alluded to Mary having worked with Janine before), and then Mary went to attack Magnussen. Magnussen was clearly already there, so I do think he was in his office before going upstairs (possibly lead up there by Mary at gunpoint) and then Sherlock stumbled in on there by mistake.. I do think that it was all kind of masterminded by Janine, since she’s the one who told Sherlock about Mags’ schedule.

The only common link between them is Janine, so I still fully believe that Janine was more involved than they show (hence Sherlock seeing her in the Suffragettes in his TAB dream).

But no, I do not recall a curtain flapping around in HLV (I’m at work so I can’t confirm), but regardless, I do think that Janine fed both of them information (both possibly offering to get her out of her deal with Magnussen; one of them would surely show up). It’s the only thing that makes sense to me.

ALTHOUGH, there’s also the belief that Mary actually DID climb the building, foreshadowed in TBB with the spider who climbed up the many-stories bank building to threaten the banker. Since many of us believe Mary was part of the Black Lotus or associated with them (secret tattoo), so her climbing up to the top office, Janine letting her in, and then ambushing CAM in his room.

BAH there’s so many things that should have been answered with S4 and never was. I still believe we will find out all the links. Just. URG.

I’ve never been that great at talking about myself, but here we go! I’m Hannah, and I am in my fourth year of college studying music education (voice concentration). I am the captain of my school’s colorguard, and I have a bunch of hobbies. I enjoy expressing myself through a wide variety of outlets, like watercolor painting, drawing, singing, dancing, crocheting, etc. I listen to a wide variety of music, but I stick mostly to pop music. Some of my favorite bands & musicians are Lady Gaga, Taylor Swift, Panic! at the Disco, The Script, A Great Big World, etc. I’m a book worm at heart, but I’m easily distracted by school. Some of my favorites that I’ve read recently are the Harry Potter series (I’m at Gryffindor, but scored highly in Ravenclaw and Hufflepuff), Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe, the Hate U Give, and the Six of Crows duology. I hope this gives you a little glimpse into my soul! 💖

Hi! I haven't seen the second cast and I'm curious - does Jamie Glover's Harry reach the levels of shouting and screaming of Jamie Parker's Harry? I loved the raw emotions he exposed on stage and the force his voice had in certain moments, so is it still similar or maybe Jamie Glover changed that bit? Actually, do you know how Stuart Ramsay's Harry was like when it comes to that?

This question could not have come at a more perfect time, because I have just seen Gideon Turner as Harry, so I’ve now seen all four Harrys and I’m in a perfect position to answer! 

I only saw Stuart as Harry once, and I know a lot of people loved him, but I didn’t really like his interpretation. He’s a good actor, but he wasn’t a good Harry for me. I remember him being softer than Jamie P, and the love for Albus exuding from him during the opening scenes, but that’s about all I remember. He definitely wasn’t shouty, and he didn’t have Jamie P’s raw emotion at all when I saw him. I saw him at the end of October last year, so it’s been a long time… 

Jamie G delivers a very different Harry to Jamie P. He certainly isn’t as angry, he doesn’t shout, he doesn’t cry with the raw emotion of Jamie P, but that doesn’t make him any less good. Again, it’s just very different. He has an authority that doesn’t require him to raise his voice. He often uses the position of his body to lend power to his words (e.g. standing up when he says Hermione doesn’t have to tell him off, bracing himself against the back of the chair in the hospital wing scene when he’s telling Albus to obey him). Also, his voice has a quality of friction to it. He doesn’t shout, he roars, and it takes a bit to get him going. He’s far calmer than Jamie P. All this works very well with Theo’s Albus, who is in a lot of pain, and would probably just break down if he had Jamie P’s Harry screaming in his face. 

The thing I actually love most about Jamie G is the way he constructs the arcs of the story. His understanding of the script, the way the story unfolds, and the way Harry and Albus’s develops throughout, is exceptional. The first thing I noticed when I saw him as Harry was the way that the scene in Albus’s dorm is an essential base for the entirety of the second part. With Theo and Jamie G, that’s the beginning of Harry and Albus finding understanding, and it’s the beginning of Harry realising what Albus needs, and that he really isn’t okay. That then extends out into the scene with Dumbledore and Draco, and beyond into the final scene of the show. It’s such a thorough and skilled treatment of the script, and that’s the special quality that he brings to the table. 

And then there’s Gideon, who I just saw yesterday. The most handsome of Harrys, who really does look exactly like Theo (Harry and Albus have never looked more like father and son). He walks the perfect line between Jamie G and Jamie P. He’s soft, he’s vulnerable, but he shouts and he cries; he’s explosive. His Harry tries to be a ‘cool dad’. He has this casual vibe. He puts his feet up on the desk like Jamie P used to (much to Hermione’s horror), he’s certain that the love potion and the blanket are great gifts and make him the best dad ever, even his accent in the line deliveries feels cool. And yet he’s anxious about interacting with his son. He strokes the blanket to stop his hands shaking as he tells Albus how much it means to him, he tries to keep his hands still in the final scene when he’s opening up about his fears. 

It was actually a bit emotional watching Gideon. He was a lot like Jamie G, in the construction of the arcs, and the decisions in each scene. That’s the way the show’s being played out now. That’s how this Harry and Albus are. But there were these flashes of Jamie P. From the feet on the desk, to the power and command of his yelling at McGonagall, from his screams as he woke from his dreams, to the tears splashing down on the stage as he talked to Dumbledore. As much as I love Jamie G, it was glorious to see those tears again, and I think Gideon can offer us the best of both worlds. 

I hope this answers your question? Sorry it turned into a Gideon love fest… This is the problem of just having seen him yesterday! He’s fresh in my mind. 

I think in summary, the answer is that every portrayal is different, and every actor is different. I’ve never been so acutely aware as I am right now of how much the actor themselves brings to a role. It’s in the way they think things through, what speaks to them most, what details they notice, the things they’ve taken from the books or the script or seeing other actors, it’s in their approach to their craft, the way they work, the conversations they have with their colleagues, even the feedback of the fans. There’s so much that goes into these portrayals beyond personal acting decisions. And that is the really cool thing about seeing so many different actors, and such a wide range of combinations of covers and principals.

I went to FanExpo Dallas!

Gail Simone signed two of my Secret Six singles, then personalized an original script of Secret Six.

I MET ALI HILLIS AND JENNIFER HALE. We talked about anxiety and bullying, how to deal and that Ali is so proud of being part of helping bring the start of equality to gaming.

Katrina Law was so sweet and yes that thought bubble says “hottie”.

I’m exhausted but it was amazing despite not getting my photo with Katrina. Gail and her husband let me hang out behind the booth when I was starting to panic because of anxiety.

MORE favourite dead not-American actors: an Advent Calendar

Day 2: Peter Ustinov

To call Peter Ustinov simply an actor is to do him a great disservice: few people can genuinely be called polymath, but he’s one of them. Writer (his first full film script, The Way Ahead, was written at 23), director/producer at 25, (School for Secrets), set designer, opera director, raconteur, multi-linguist, UNICEF ambassador, and of course, the voice of Prince John in Disney’s Robin Hood

For all that, he is a delight as an actor. There’s an aura of self-mockery about him that never descends into hamminess or knowingness. He’s an innocent abroad, a petulant child, a harmless dope; except he’s the cleverest man in the room, the sneakiest thief, the craftiest opponent. He is - and this is not something you can say of everyone - a joy to watch. And he has great hair. 

Favourite Role: Jules in We’re No Angels (1958) which is a joy of a film, with a great cast (Bogie, Baz, etc) and Jules is the most adorable safecracker you will ever see. 

Another good place to start: Hot Millions (1968) which is a corker of a film, Ustinov and Maggie Smith taking on the old school tie system and winning. They are both the most adorable people ever and it’s a little gem. And it would be rude not to rec a Poirot, so I would go for Death on the Nile (1978) because it’s probably the best of his, he’s back with David Niven 30-odd years after he was his batman during the writing/filming of The Way Ahead, and you get Angela Lansbury doing the best drunk acting on film possibly ever

The Arcana: Dramatic Ending
  • Apprentice: Nadia! I have to stop you before you go through with the execution. You are making a mistake. Julian is not the murderer.
  • Nadia: What!? He was seen fleeing the crime scene. What proof do you have to back up your assertions?
  • Apprentice: I know that Count Lucio is alive!
  • Nadia: Is this one of your games again? You first hide my husband's killer behind my back and now you-
  • Apprentice: Nadia, please. I have seen the count. He is a goat-man living in the remains of your husband's chambers.
  • Nadia: Wait, hold up. What!?
  • Apprentice: I know it sounds crazy. But I have seen him with my own eyes. He lives in the old wing, among the ashes. Your husband looks like the goat-man from the painting.
  • Nadia: You mean that ghastly painting in my dining room?
  • Apprentice: Yes, red beady eyes and everything. It is fast and big and likes to lurk in the darkness.
  • Nadia: I am lost for words. You mean that you did not tell me that there was a monster living in my house?
  • Apprentice: Well, to be fair, I was not finished with my investigation and I wanted to make sure I had everything-
  • Nadia: I live near those ruins! What if that thing attacked me when I was walking around at night or at day? What about the safety of my servants and guards? First, you go canoodling with the man that you were supposed to track down, and now I find out that there was a monster on my property that has been there the whole time? What else could you be hiding from me?
  • Apprentice: Umm, not much else. Just that I have been snogging Asra by your fountain each night. Oh, and that your new flame is Julian's sister. Though she is torn, she plans to rescue him tonight.
  • Nadia: Some of that is information that would have been helpful to me during the investigation.
  • Apprentice: I know. That is why I kept it from you.

pairing: Natsu Dragneel/Lucy Heartfilia

summary: Of all of the stupid shit Lucy has done while drunk, entering a contract with a demon probably takes the cake. The icing on said cake, however, is the fact that neither of the two know what the terms of the contract are. Until they figure it out, Lucy is stuck living with a demon who doesn’t really understand the concept of keeping a low profile.

chapter four: Patience is a Virtue

Prev: i, ii, iii

ffn link


Monday rolls around and Lucy swears the day is going slowly just to spite her. Her third, and final, class of the day is one of her core psych courses and her notes are a mess by the end of it, so she decides to go and grab an extra large black coffee with a quad shot of espresso because if she feels like she’s dying, she may as well stick her other foot through the door and see if caffeine overdoses are entirely possible.

Death is the least of her problems. Lucy is ready to look death in the eye and break his nose if it means she doesn’t have to find a way to drag her horned, scaly, pink-haired demon to Professor Geer’s office without the entire campus noticing the horns. Or the hair. Or him in general.

Look at EJ's new tweet "memorizing memorizing memorizing good writing". Sounds like he's reading a new script? Yet he's got NOTHING new on IMDB. All his projects are post-production. Which means secret script. And TODAY (august 24th) happens to be the day TWD starts filming again (source NR's insta). 👀👀👀👀

This is all very interesting information, anon. Thank you. I also noticed that Erik never replied to the account who asked him about the job. Erik likes to reply people on Twitter, so his silence stands out, especially since the question is directed towards his empty IMDb page. (IMDb can’t be fully trusted, because it can be edited by the general public, but the general information is usually accurate.) In the past, when Erik likes to tease about upcoming projects, he is usually very un-subtle about it, such as when he teased his role on Mr. Robot (X). I also looked into his only role listed for 2017, Police State, and Seth Gilliam plays one of the main characters, named Officer Grady (X). The IMDb page listed the release date for back in February (X), but I couldn’t find any other reference to the movie online, not even a trailer on YouTube. So the release date might have been wrong or the project shelved. Either way, I don’t think this role was a coincidence. Erik Jensen onscreen as a police officer, with a TWD co-star whose name is where Beth “died”, is too convenient. I wouldn’t be surprised if AMC found these roles for Erik and Seth. It’s been theorized that Father Gabriel was connected to Beth getting left behind (X), and Dr. Edwards of course would be the person who saved her, being the one with the keys to the medicine cabinet and ultimately being the one to make the call. If so, these characters would bookend Beth’s survival, and by connecting the actors to TWD in a separate project, AMC can increase promotion for said actors, their characters, and for Beth.

With all of this in mind, Erik Jensen’s quiet 2017 schedule reminds me of Emily’s quiet schedule. She’s mostly been in L.A , and she moved to a new place (and a house I heard), and worked on her upcoming album, with some photoshoots. But otherwise she hasn’t been working. She deserves a break of course, but Emily also hasn’t had any longtime roles yet, and she should be able to get more permanent roles on TV easily.
