simple jewelry

Slytherin aesthetic 🐍

Black coffee, simple silver jewelry, fallen leaves in the puddle, fresh air of the woods, ember, thick fog, oversized hoodies, dusty bookshelves, dark wool coats, abounded medieval castles, cemetery sculptures, dried flowers, drizzling rain, grey clouds, old ruined books, moss, empty museums, long-distance train journeys, lonely strolls on an overcast mornings, cigarette smoke, antique stores, elegant notebooks, black ink, graphic tattoos, velvet dresses, expensive lingeries, old botanical gardens, heavy perfumes.

I always buy neutral colors (black, white, cream, tan, and all shades of brown and grey) that would suit my basics: simple tops, trousers, cardigans, etc. Make your outfit look 10x better with something as simple as adding a leather jacket or a nice cardigan, paired with some black or nude heels & simple jewelry. Try finding a pair of black or blue jeans that are comfortable and hug your body in the right way. And for date nights I suggest you get a little black dress and a nice pencil skirt with a button-up.

Listen kid, I’m not gonna bullshit you, all right? I don’t give a good fuck what you know, or don’t know, but I’m gonna torture you anyway, regardless. Not to get information. It’s amusing, to me, to torture a cop. You can say anything you want cause I’ve heard it all before. All you can do is pray for a quick death, which you ain’t gonna get.

Plot: After a simple jewelry heist goes terribly wrong, the surviving criminals begin to suspect that one of them is a police informant.

“Princess (y/n)!” The head maid Mary boomed from across the hall. “Get back here this instant!“

You turned around and face the big women as she ran as fast as she can towards where you stood. You sighed."But Mary! I want to walk through the garden! It’s such a nice day!”

Storming up to you, she grabbed your wrist and gave it a harsh tug. “Princess! Your father is calling you! So, be an obedient child and answer his call!”

You scoffed and held back a laugh.Oh now he wants to see his wretched mistake, hm?”

Mary ignored your words and pulled you towards the room, angrily slamming it shut once the both of you were inside. She yelled out for your personal maids - whose room connected to your - to come get you ready. The three of them quickly came to your side and frantically began to open drawers upon drawers of clothing and accessories.

Raising a brow you spoke. “I can dress myself, thank you very much.” You ripped your arms from their hold and walked to the closet, picking out a simple blue silk gown with a pink sash around the waist and a elegant bow in the back that your mother attached around the waist. You smiled warmly at the dress. “I will wear this. Please find my pearls.” You told the maids. However, instead of complying with your demand, they looked straight at the head maid nervously, questioning the decision you made.

Mary spoke up.”You will not princess.”

You calmly placed the dress on my bed and crossed your arms. “Excuse me?”

She picked up your dressed and returned it to the closet, returning with a hideous dress. Something only described as a marshmallow dress. It was pink and white, with bows on the top of the chest and on the arms. The sleeves were fringed and there was a cage suppose to make your figure - more specifically your behind - look more attractive. Very uncomfortable for a visit to your father. “You will wear this pretty dress, princess.”

You cringed. “Why? What is the occasion for wearing a horrid dress like this? Is this my punishment?” You smiled a bit as my three maid snickered at your remark.

The older lady glared at the three younger ones, shutting them up for good. Her glare then turned to focus on you. “Princess. You will wear this dress even if I have to strip you naked and force it upon you.”

You unconsciously covered your chest and sighed deeply. “Fine! Gosh! Just…. ugh!”

You stood there as your maids helped you slip and fasten the dress, and accessorized you with a white choker and a diamond ring. “At least the jewelry is simple.” You murmured.

Two of the maid fixed you hair while the other applied your makeup, completing the look. You stood in front of the mirror. All you felt was despair. “I don’t look like me.”

Mary smiled softly. “(y/n). You’re beautiful.”

You shook your head. “No, I don’t. I look like a doll.”

She chuckled and led you out of the room towards your fathers throne room.

You puffed your cheeks, slouching a bit as you walked. “I don’t wanna go.” You whined again to Mary. That did nothing, but earn a slap to the small of yout back. You yelped, a mixture of surprise and pain.

“Stand up straight. Smile prettily. Remember your manners.” She stopped you before the door and observed you. She frowned and reached over, pulling the dress down a bit from the top, revealing your breasts.

“Mary!” You pulled away in shock. “I am visiting my father!”

She rolled her eyes. “Child. You’re not just visiting your father. The prince of Aestas is here.”

“And? What does this have to do with me?”

She scoffed. “Princess. Think about it.”

You stood there silently thinking before your eyes widened. “No….”

“Correct you are princess.”

You shook you head. “No, no, no, no, no. No! Mary! Please.Convince my father to not go through with this!”

She sighed and rubbed yor back. “Princess, this was bound to happen. You two have been engaged since birth.”

You narrowed your eyes at her. “Shouldn’t the engaged have a say in this?”

All she did was shake her head, leading you closer to the door and ordering the guards by it. “Announce the princess’ arrival.”

You faced her and pleaded. “Mary please! Please don’t let him do this to me.”

Sadness - no pity - sparkled in her eyes. “This is out of my control (y/n). This is your destiny. Be strong my dear. Just how I raised you, okay? Promise me.” She cupped my cheek, tears filling her eyes. “Promise the one who loves you and cares for you more than anyone else in this world. The infertile women who was blessed with the most beautiful child to care for as I would if I had my own.”

You swallowed the lump in your throat and nodded. “I-I promise, but I won’t go down without a fight Mama Mary.”

Tears flew down her cheeks, causing you to tear up as well.

“You haven’t called me Mama in ages.” She sobbed.

You wiped the tears from my eye and hugged her tightly. “Mama Mary, I love you.”

She nodded and wiped her tears away, fixing your makeup quickly and checking your appearance. She cupped your cheeks once more. “(y/n). I love you so much. Be careful. I will be in the back praying for you. Be brave.” She kissed your forehead and rushed off to join the other servants.

You  straightened my back and waited for your name to be announced.

The large doors in front of you opened wide, a bright piercing light ran past, causing me to squint. Damn chandeliers.

“The princess of Hiems, (y/n), is now entering the room! Show her your respect!” A random guard bellowed.

You slowly walked inside, back straight, hands at your sides, your figure filled with confidence. You walked straight in, facing your father and bowed respectfully waiting for him to speak first.

His eyes glance over your figure, judging you immediately like he always does. Finally he spoke. “Daughter. You’re late.”

You nodded. “I do apologize father. I have no worthy excuse for my late-.”

He waved his hand, silencing you. “I do not care.”

You clenched my jaw, waiting to hear what else he had to say to the daughter he despised.

“Enough with small talk, princess…” He never did call you by your real name. “This is prince Seokjin, of Aestas.”

Your eyes glanced over to the tall figure by his side. His hair golden blonde, plump, pink, kissable lips, wide shoulders and mainly stance. You nodded and bowed respectfully, but quickly towards him. “My pleasure your highness.”

He nodded, bowing as well. “The pleasure is all mine.” His voice sounded soft, melodic. In another life, he would’ve been an amazing musician.

You glanced back at my father, waiting for his words and so did the prince.

“You two will be wed in seven days.” He spoke bluntly, the crowd of maids, butlers and royals bursts into cheer.

Your dared to glance at the prince, his expression emotionless. I bet he doesn’t want this either.

“Father, if I may. Why the sudden engagement?” You bit the inside of my cheeks, nervous of overstepping the boundaries with your father.

His eyes flashed with anger as he muttered in a deadly tone. “You. Call. Me. Highness. Understand?”

“My apologize, your highness.”

He glanced at the both of us.”You two are being arranged to be wed for peace between the Heims and the Aestas. That is all. You two will play your duty to both kingdoms and unite them.” He fixated his deadly gaze on you. “Un.der.stand?”

You swallowed the lump in your throat and clenched my fists. Don’t go down without a fight (y/n).

“But Father! I don’t want this!” You bursted. “I will not marry him!”

You watched my father stand from his throne, walk down the few steps and lift his arm in the air. You knew what was coming, its happened many times before. You closed your eyes and braced myself for the hard slap you’ve just earned yourself. You heard the loud skin to skin contact, but when you waited for the tears and the pain to settle in, it never came.

You fearfully peeled your eyes open, curious to see if the hit just made you feel numb or if this is what it feels like to be unconscious. Instead, Your eyes were glued onto a mans back. You tilted your head and saw your betrothed standing between you and your father. His cheeks mismatched in color with the shape of my fathers palm on one red cheek. Your eyes widened in shocked.

“Prince Seokjin?” The king began. “You dare stand in the way of my punishment for my idiotic, worthless excuse of a daughter?”

You winced at his words, a sting in your heart, nothing new. Why does he always have to say these things? You took a deep breath and blinked the tears out of your eyes focusing on Seokjin.

He spoke. “It is my duty to protect my fiancée and take blame for her foolish words and actions.” He bowed at my father. “Please accept my apologizes for my fiancée .

You clenched my jaw at him. Of course. A suck up for power. Another snobby prince… who just took a slap for me. You shook your head. No (y/n). This still isn’t right…

A small smile of approval spread across your fathers face. He nodded and patted the princes shoulder. “I accept. Please control your fiancées’ words and actions. I now place the burden on your shoulders prince Seokjin of Aestas. Rise.”

You bit my lip, clenching yout fists in frustration. Why can’t I control anything?

He rose and nodded. “Our marriage will untie Hiems and Aestas together.”

The king nodded. “That is the plan.” He walked back and took his seat on the throne. “Servants and royals! You are dismissed! I wish to speak to the engaged alone!”

You watched them all leave. You looked around the room and your eyes met with Mary, her eyes filled with pity while yours filled with despair. The doors shut, making you turn your attention to the king and prince, his eyes filled with rage.

“Princess. Prince Seokjin has spared you from further punishment. However! If you dare, to speak out against my word, I will punish you severely! You will marry him! You will unite both kingdoms and you will bear his children! This is your duty as a women and a princess! If I hear any complaints from the prince, I will handle you myself! Do you understand!?”

Your body began to shake as your eyes threatened to burst into tears. You took a deep breath and whispered. “Yes, your highness.”

He nodded. “Good, you ungrateful wretch. Leave to your room!”

You quickly turned your back walking out of the doors, silent tears spilling down your cheeks. The moment the doors closed, separating the two men from you, you ran to your room and slammed it shut just so you can bawl your eyes out.

Nik's Tips for discreet witchcraft

I know there are a lot of young witches who need to be discreet about their craft, so I’ve made some tips for how to practice witchcraft and still be discreet. Just putting a little disclaimer, I don’t practice all of these myself (like the color magic) but I thought they would be useful to include, nor do I claim to know everything, I constantly learn just like everyone else.

Witch Tips

1) keep a small notebook/sketchbook 

     A pocket sized notebook is helpful for any witch but expecially for being discreet. Drawing sigils and writing spells in the notebook is a way to cast spells in the open with no one noticing. The pocket notebook is also a great system for artists and writers as drawing and creative writing everyday really improves skill, and if someone happens to look inside the book doesn’t scream witchcraft.  I personally like using my own leather bound pocket book but the mini composition notebook also works and is less noticeable. A tip for doing the sigil or spell magic is when you write or draw imaging you intend in order to charge it and draw a circle around it to cast it (you don’t have to do this but it helps some witches). Putting a charm or sigil of hiding on the notebook will also help it not be too noticeable

2) Use online books

    The Internet is an all around helpful source, but it’s expecially helpful for discreet witches who want to do reasearch. Getting hard copy books are great but can easily be seen lying around your room. It’s much easier to just use online books and you can find more subjects than just in a library.  If you’re worried about someone looking through your history you can always use incognito mode or simply delete the history and cookies after you’re finished.

3)Wearing simple crystal jewelry

    Crystal jewelry may seem like it’s obviously witchy but with current fashion trends crystal necklaces are pretty common. Stones and crystals are used in magic all the time and have their own meanings, while it’s not uncommon for people to know that crystals have meanings it’s easy to brush off wearing crystal jewelry as just a fashion choice.  When getting crystal jewelry don’t buy from stores in the mall like hot topic or forever 21. These stores sell fake crystals, some places claim that their real but 99% if the time fashion stores sell glass instead of crystal(unless you go to an actual crystal/spiritual store, these are usually real).

4)Do rituals outside

   The practice of rituals can be hard to do if you’re trying to be a discreet witch. Doing rituals outside help with not getting caught in the middle of a ritual. There is still a chance someone could catch you but it’s a very small chance and they’re most likely a stranger you’ll never see again. If you use incense in rituals being outside helps the smell not linger where people can smell and become suspicious as well. Being out in nature while doing rituals also helps green witches with spiritual energy.

5)Use scented candles for candle magic

   Having lots of candles can raise suspicious with some people, scented candles fix this. Having one or two scented candles doesn’t seem abnormal and is pretty common. Yankee Candle has a great variety of color and scents, you can pick by a color you commonly use or by scent. Herbal scents such as rosemary and lavender double as color magic and scent magic. Make sure when you pick out candles pick a scent you like and that the smell won’t give you a headache.

6)Keep a small magic box

   Having a small box is good for storing little witchy items and because the box is small it can be easily hidden. Keeping a candle, lighter, a few small crystals and some herbs, are a few basics that can usually fit in a small box. You can get a small wooden box at craft stores for about a dollar and decorate it or keep it plain, or even use an empty Altoids tin.  Another way to keep it hidden is putting a charm or sigil of hiding. Small magic boxes are also helpful for transportation to outdoor rituals.

7)Use color magic when getting dressed

    Using color magic when getting dressed is a simple form of magic and no one can tell you’re doing witchcraft. When putting away your clothes you can easily charge the clothing with the intent so it’s ready for when you wear it. If you’re like me and wear the same color everyday you can write small sigils on the tags of clothing.

8)Write sigils in lotion

   Writing sigils onto your skin with lotion or make up foundation are a great form of discreet witchcraft. Once you write the sigil and rub it into your skin it can no longer be seen therefore no getting caught. Rubbing the sigil into your skin helps imbue the magic into you. This practice is great for glamour spells.

9)Use whatever is in the kitchen for herb magic.

    Buying or drying your own herbs could possibly raise questions, if you’re doing herb magic just try to use whatever herbs you have in the kitchen. The best way to do this is to just put the herbs in meals you’re having. When taking herbs from the kitchen just remember not to do it too often and get caught.

10)Avoid making an alter

     This is kind of an obvious thing not to do. Having an alter is a very easy way to get caught and you don’t need an alter to perform witchcraft. If you insist on having an alter you can make a pocket alter which is basically the same as the small magic box in tip #6.

11)Pocket stones

     Discreet or not pocket stones are useful. Pocket stones are just stones or crystals you keep in your pocket or in a pouch throughout the day. Most people won’t be going through your pockets so it’s good for a discreet crystal witch.

12)If you want to collect crystal also keep a rock/mineral book

     Crystals are a fairly witchy thing but just adding a rock guide book makes it look like a simple collection which is pretty common. Whether your a discreet witch or not rock guide books are a good things to keep around if you want to learn.

13)Herb magic potpourri

     If you make herb pouches use nicely scented herbs to have the pouch double as potpourri. If the pouches double as potpourri they’re more inconspicuous. Places the pouches around dirty laundry or in drawers, placement helps the pouches look more like potpourri and less like witchcraft.

I hope these tips are helpful to some people and if you have any questions feel free to ask!

hey nobody asked but I have headcanons about Alana Maxwell and also I’m procrastinating on paperwork

  • she keeps her hair fairly long (the longest of any women on the Hephaestus, anyway) but always, always pulled back because it’s way too distracting if she wears it down.
  • she likes to dye her hair bright and unnatural colors (a nice side perk of Goddard Futuristics - they don’t really give a shit about how you look, as long as you do good work) but doesn’t like the trouble of maintaining it. usually she lets it fade quite a bit before she picks a new color.
  • she’s a big fan of stim jewelry, especially simple spinner rings and fidget bracelets. she’s usually wearing at least one of each.
  • team Oops It’s Been A Few Days Since I’ve Taken A Shower
  • she likes tattoos but can never commit to what to get. she settles for doodling on herself (and Jacobi) a lot. 
  • her living space isn’t magazine cover perfect - she hasn’t made her bed since she was about 7 and the hamper tends to be overflowing - but everything does tend to be tidied away into very particular places. she doesn’t like clutter on the floor or on any of her surfaces. 
  • she has an enduring love of dumb 80′s synthpop that Jacobi just… Does Not Get. both of them enjoy electronica that has 0 lyrics and is 100% interesting beats and sounds, though.
