You are being watched. The government has a secret system, a machine that spies on you every hour of every day. I designed the machine to detect acts of terror but it sees everything. Violent crimes involving ordinary people. The Government considers these people “irrelevant” We don’t. Hunted by the authorities, we work in secret. You’ll never find us. But victim or perpetrator. If your number’s up. we’ll find you.
Does anyone else have like…a test spellbook? I started a new one several weeks ago, and basically what I do with these is if I find a spell I like from a book or on tumblr (sometimes edited, sometimes not) or if I create a spell but haven’t used it yet, I put it in this book.
And then I DO the spells! If I’m happy with the results, then I can copy the spell into another book that acts as my Actual Spellbook. If I’m not happy with the results, then I can either edit the spell and try again, or just move on and leave it out of the main book entirely.
I love my test book because it means all of the spells in my Actual Spellbook are Jasmine Tested, Jasmine Approved. I don’t want to add something in there if I’m not sure if it’ll even work. But at the same time, I get to keep track of my ideas and the really cool ideas I run into elsewhere, especially when I find something I don’t have a use for and then when I need it I can’t fucking remember where it’s from or what it was. (”Ugh what was that spell I took out of that Neil Gaiman story?” CHECK THE TEST BOOK. “What are the words to that chant I saw in that…one tumblr post…somewhere….” IT’S IN THE TEST BOOK)
Also it gives me something to do with all of these journals I keep buying…
You are being watched. The government has a secret system, a machine that spies on you every hour of every day. I know because I built it. I designed the machine to detect acts of terror but it sees everything. Violent crimes involving ordinary people, people like you. Crimes the government considered “irrelevant.” They wouldn’t act, so I decided I would. But I needed a partner, someone with the skills to intervene. Hunted by the authorities, we work in secret. You’ll never find us, but victim or perpetrator, if your number’s up… we’ll find you.
