Among the most famous hexing spells are those involving
miniature-sized personalized coffins left on the spell target’s
doorsteps. This coffin spell is traditionally as much an act of
sheer intimidation as it is a magical spell, however it can be
put to less malevolent uses. Use the little coffin spell below to
lay issues to rest and, in particular, to bury addictions.
Create a small coffin. You will need a little box.
You can find one or make one, however the imagery should be very clear: there should be no ambiguity regarding the type of box. Inspiration, or a
box itself, may be taken from Mexican Day of the
Dead (Dia de los Muertos) handicrafts.
Paint the outside of the box black. Decorate with
purple glitter glue if desired.
Traditionally the box contains a small doll, which
may or may not be personalized so that the identity of the target is clear. Consider how to personify your addiction.
Accompany and reinforce this spell with intensive
The doll may be pierced with pins. Add candle
stubs, leftover spell wax, graveyard dirt, asafetida, and banishing powder, especially Lost and Away Powder.
what was the turning point in Emily’s aesthetics, when exactly did she raise her hand to stop the royal tailor and said “we’re done with the white frills and bows, Bartholomew, give me the sharp-edged purple longcoat and high boots”
awoke rather abruptly feeling ill and quickly rolled over and vomited
into a bucket that Hopkins had placed there earlier when he had come
to check on her. That was hours ago and it was now the middle of the
night as no sunshine passed through the gap in the tent. She sensed
Hesky awake and send his concern through the Link and she responded
with the sickly feeling and reassurance to let him know she was okay.
He was still worried about her though and she could easily sense it
even if they were not in the Link. She ached, her whole body did and
the doctors could not figure out why, the symbiont had been working
overtime to try and combat this infection whatever it was and was
almost trying to dig itself into her body. She hit it as if to tell
it to stop which only made her feel worse. She was not the only one
though, a few of the others had gotten ill too, Karen among them
although Cathy seemed to be at a more advanced stage. Many were
thinking this could be the body rejecting the symbiont but there was
no sign of that. What was odd was that only the woman were falling
ill. Because of this the Human military advance across Bento had come
to a halt while they dealt with this issue, Kiev’s force had been
reporting the same thing with their female soldiers and even some of
the men where feeling the early effects.
I hate feeling like this” she moaned to herself, she hated being
ill she liked to be up and doing things, which was probably why she
hated being pregnant. That thought made her laugh since she had had
the desire for another, that made Hesky awake once more as he felt
that desire in the Link and she sent humour to quell his fear.
then closed her eyes and drifted off to sleep again, if not a bit
next morning everyone was woken to the sudden shock of Cathy through
the Link, she screamed and shouted and called for help in the Link
making everyone aware something was wrong. Not just in her camp but
on the planet and in the fleet.
was the first in her tent and what he saw was nothing short of
features were sharper and more defined and her ears elongated like
that of a mythical elf, her eyes were larger and a sharp purple
colour that seemed to see everything. But what was most obvious were
her legs, it was as if the foot had lengthened to create another knee
joint that bent backwards adding to their already incredible power.
At the base of her spine was now a tail, not quite a mammal one and
not a reptilian either.
me” she breathed.
stared at her not sure what to do before finally getting down and
helping her back into her bed.
is your symbiont?”
placed her hand on the back of her neck and felt only flesh, the
symbiont was gone.
Cassion don’t sneak up on people” Hopkins shouted.
sat next to Cathy and looked her over, by this time a crowed had
gathered with people asking questions and even those in the Link
demanding to know what had happened especially Hesky. It was an hour
before they had even an idea.
Jenkins asked Cassion who was looking at some of her blood.
in my expert opinion…this blood is red”
fine” he said putting it aside “She is in perfect health”
my shit doesn’t stink” said Hopkins who was sitting next to her
holding her hand.
true she is now cured of all the natural ailments you would normally
expect to find in a normal Human and even her diabetes is cured”
were diabetic?” Jenkins said to Cathy.
would not have let me join if they knew, Cassion agreed to keep it a
secret” she said quietly.
no” Hopkins said about to go to the tent entrance but was hit aside
the moment Hesky appeared having already struck several guards. His
eyes rested on his wife and his face rested with joy of seeing her.
He ran to her side “Cathy, I’m here”
shouldn’t have come I didn’t want you to see me like this” she said
tears filling her eyes as she looked at her legs now misshapen.
turned and glared at the Conduit standing next to Jenkins and went
for him but Jenkins and Hopkins stopped him.
have you done to her!”
have done nothing” it replied. “Liar!”
Hesky they are not” Hopkins said making him face him. “Search the
Link you know that they are just as shocked by this as we are”
calmed for a moment as he did so, it was true in the Link no lies
could be told and the Gal kept themselves open. They were just as
surprised as anyone. He went back to her side and kissed her.
are still as beautiful as the day I met you”
smiled “Where is Depit?”
left him with a friend on the ship, he is fine but misses his mother.
He tried to suckle my tit last night”
laughed at that, she always loved that he could put a smile on her
how sweet, well my work is done” Cassion said getting up.
stay there!” Hesky shouted.
Does stuff still need explaining?”
do have other stuff to do you know, I am not just here to explain
random plot points”
yeah, what else do you do?” Jenkins asked him.
stood there for a moment saying nothing but thinking heavily his eyes
he said taking a seat “I hope you readers appreciate this”
looked to where he was looking, seeing nothing.
are you talking to?” the Conduit asked.
don’t ask him you wouldn’t believe him anyway” Hesky said
I was about to say” Cassion began “This seems to be the natural
course of the symbiont”
do you know?” Hopkins asked.
two others woke up in the same state in Kievs camp this morning, they
are too both fine…and both female it seems this will affect the
females first before the men” he said holing up a com.
all babies start off as female in the womb and then if they have the
Y chromosome become males. This works the same way” Cassion said
fiddling with his nails.
this will happen to all of us?” Jenkins asked.
it will affect some sooner than others but yes, gentlemen..and lady
and whatever the hell you are, I present to you the new Human race”
is she okay?” Hesky pressed pointing at Cathy.
she is fine, a bit of bed rest and she will up and about in no time
and still kicking your ass in the sparing cages. Now if you excuse me
I have other plot points to prepare for explanation” Cassion
straightened his jacket and left and subsequently disappeared as the
writer did not need him right now.
really hate that guy” Hesky said before looking back at his wife,
he looked down at her legs and grinned. “It’s a good thing I’m a
leg man isn’t it?”
news was met with a mixture of reactions, some were horrified at the
thought that their bodies were about to undergo a drastic
transformation and in a sense no longer be Human. Others were
intrigued by the thoughts that this had cured the ailments of those
who had undergone it and for those who suffered genetic disorders
this was nothing short of a god send. Others simply thought it looked
cool and were fine with it. Cathy was up and about within a few
hours, she went through a few physical exercises and it was found she
had completely absorbed the effects of the symbiont, in fact the
symbiont had liquefied and become part of her genetic code now.
Cassion had to explain further to his annoyance that this was
probably what Humanity would look like if the comet carrying the Gal
original genetic code had crashed on Terra all those millennia ago.
This was in fact a natural evolution if not a bit sped up. So over
the next few weeks humanity began to die out and in their place a new
race emerged. Everyone was not really sure what they should call
themselves since they were now becoming something else but in the end
they thought it a conversation for another day. By this time the
symbiont were making their way to Terra itself along with this new
information. It was not as warmly met and it took a lot of scientists
a lot of time to explain it before people began warming to the idea.
It was mainly because the terminally ill leapt at the chance to save
their lives and once they were seen enjoying life and what their new
bodies could do public opinion swayed. It was never forced on anyone
though, it was always said form the beginning that the symbiont would
be subject ot the personal choice and beliefs of the individual. But,
soon those without a symbiont were vastly outnumbered by those who
was not just their physical bodies that changed, the Link was
stronger than ever, they could now hear each others thoughts and send
full messages to one another with distance meaning very little.
then it all changed when the secret the Gal had been wanting to tell
the Humans for so long but had been unable to, was finally revealed.
