The forest stretched as far as he could see, blackened and twisted where only hours ago it had been green and lush. Had this been his fault for visiting the humans? Had he caused it? He sprinted to find the Barrows, the Mushroom rings, the entrances back into his world. All that was left was smoke and ash, sticking raw in his lungs. 

The fey staggered to a halt, eyes darting this way and that. 
He had no way home out of the human world.

He heard the shouts and the wail of sirens in the distance.

anonymous asked:

what are u wearing?

Well, it’s Wednesday so I am wearing a Victorian frock coat and pegged trousers. Added to that are a pair of round Victorian smoked goggles, cravat, diamond stick pin and top hat. I am carrying a walking stick with a silver lion head and clinching a cigarette holder in my teeth. You know, the usual.

anonymous asked:

++ I'm wrong, seeing her holding a lighter, and it's a recennt picture too, convinced me that she's not an occasional smoker. Prolly she smokes a stick or two a day before or after concert/meal. Some people associate smoking as stress reliever (i used to do that too whenever nerves got the best of me but i quit). It'll affect her voice maybe it's not noticeable right now but you'll see it in the long run & you can see her being out of breath easily unlike when they're doing the reflection tour

Thanks doc, that’s actually a great explanation. She could smoke but not on a regular basis. Like im sure she wouldnt make it a habit if she knows it’ll affect her

I’m still pregnant.. and miserable. Baby girl hasnt moved like normal today but im not really worried yet cause she is still moving. I am starting to get jealous cause everyone is having their babies and im over here like “yep, any day now..” i cant wait to meet my little one.

Ive done a lot of reading and hopefully the things ive read are true about the way CPS works. Im pretty positive nothing serious will happen if the baby test positive for thc which is a relief because i would never think of hurting my baby or doing anything to put her into harm. Im sure someone will read this and think i already have cause of smoking weed, but those are the people that dont do research and just listen to all the hype. The way i see it is, i dont smoke cigarettes, i dont do any hardcore drugs (im too afraid to try drugs, ill stick to smoking weed), i dont drink, i dont pop pills.. i mean i hardly like taking tylenol or any over the counter stuff. Im sure my baby will prove herself to be healthy and happy and we will be just fine. I plan to be completely honest and answer any questions that the doctors or whoever have. Im just ready to get this over with so i can come home and live my life again.

Hopefully soon we will have something planned to get her to come out or she will end up coming on her own (which i can only hope.) But until then, i sit and still wait for her.

Where could I acquire a smudge stick for cleansing?

Well, don’t call it a smudge stick unless you are within one of the many Native American Cultures, but you can get a smoke cleansing stick either at a local metaphysical shop, etsy, or even on amazon. I don’t know about the freshness on amazon. Also if you know your herbs, you can collect and dry them yourself as well too. Just try to avoid white sage as it is over harvested and endangered.

Sushi.

The recipe for the rolls I found on one of the culinary sites and this is my first experience.

Ingredients:
1 Cup sushi rice
rice vinegar or seasoning for sushi with rice vinegar
nori seaweed

Filling:
I used what was at home : fresh cucumber, bell pepper, crab sticks, smoked trout, eggs, shrimp (already cleaned)

You will also need:
soy sauce
pickled ginger
wasabi

Preparation:

The rice must be boiled according to instructions.
Then cool it to room temperature and add 3 tablespoons of seasoning for sushi with rice vinegar. For this figure it is necessary to shift into a large bowl being careful not to mix the seasoning gently pour dispensing across the surface of the rice and leave to soak. If no pre-seasoning, you can make one: mix 50 ml of rice vinegar, 1 tablespoon sugar and 1 teaspoon of salt.

From eggs to fry a pancake-omelet: beat egg with ½ tsp of soy sauce and fry in butter on both sides. Cut the omelet strips with a width of 0.5 cm.

For rolls, the Shogun (trout+omelette) the omelette you can still cushy roll roll

Cucumber, pepper, fish cut into cubes (pictured above have all chopped).
Shrimp boil (throw in boiling water, after boiling, boil 1-5 minutes, depending on size).

It was a preparatory stage. Now the twists in the rolls.
This requires a bamboo Mat.
On the Mat to put a sheet of seaweed, shiny side down.

Algae - spread out the rice, at the upper boundary to leave 1.5 cm free. The rice did not stick to the hands, soak hands in mixture of cold water and rice vinegar (200 ml water + 3 tbsp vinegar).

Now the filling, laid in rows. For us it was such a combination:
- fish+omelette+ogurchik
- shrimp+scrambled eggs+cucumber
- shrimp+scrambled eggs+cucumber
- shrimp+scrambled eggs+pepper
- fish+shrimp+cucumber

It is recommended to add Philadelphia cheese, but we were prepared to cook spontaneously and found it on sale.

When the filling is laid, wrap the edge of the Mat so that it touches the edge of the rice. Lifting the Mat, roll nori into a tight roll.

The edge of the seaweed without rice, moisten with water and it will stick to roulette. I spread the rice warm. This seaweed was soft and curled great, the Mat is almost not needed, only for the first push.

Giving to lie down for a few minutes, I cut the rolls into pieces of 1.5 cm, for ease of eating. When cut, the rice did not stick to the knife, dipped it in a mixture of water and rice vinegar (see above)

Served sushi rolls with soy sauce, wasabi - Japanese horseradish and pickled ginger.

Prologue

He looked down at his watch. 10:23PM. He was late. He brushed away the sweat collecting on his brows and began walking down the sidewalk at a frantic pace. Streetlights clicked off as he passed underneath them. He shuddered with each added globe of darkness. He should be used to this by now, but it’s not exactly something one can become accustomed to.

He reached in his denim jeans pocket and pulled out a lighter and a pack of maverick reds. He sparked the cigarette and inhaled slowly, letting the smoke stick to his clothes. 10:28PM. They were going to be furious, yet they had come to expect this from him. He was the youngest member of the group and ran on his own time. Maybe he was just forgetful.

He approached am alleyway and turned down it. He came to stand in front of a red door with a black lion imprinted on it. He knocked three times in quick succession before the door creaked open. He slipped inside, slamming the door shut behind him. 

 “Withy, it’s so good to see you son. I see you still haven’t fixed your watch?” A smile splayed across the older man’s face, slightly concealed by his mountainous beard. 

 “You know how I am, Jax. Even when I leave early, I’ll show up late.” Jax led him down a dimly lit corridor to a room in the back corner. 

Six other men with cloaks awaited them. The eldest man stepped forward, placing his hand out palm up, a gesture of peace and respect towards Withy. He responded by placing his hand over the man’s, palm down, crushing the space between them until a small flame erupted between their hands, pushing them apart. The flame hovered in the air; the sign of the Maldusians had been completed and the meeting could now begin.

missing you

11pm looking at old pictures of us

missing those 3am skype calls talking bout our futures as better lovers

 2 hour drives you drove for me, was it all worth it?

the feeling of your breath behind my neck arms around my waist

never felt so much security

now all i got is this insecurity

will i ever find love or lust?

where is the love?

lonely nights filling the void with what wasnt love but all lust

tipsy red cups, satans candy nicotine sticks, smoking what fucks up my lungs and my coherence 

none of those got me more fuck up than how you left me fucked over.

what is love?

was it all lust or just childs play?

if that wasnt love please tell me what was it

was it all just pretending or was it real?

you weren’t special till i made you so

you said that we would remain friends but really was that just to let you feel less guilty?

im sorry i couldn’t be your best.

im sorry for falling in love with you.

Tia winced at the tight grip. ”Shit bro, let go,”She huffed, using her free hand to try and block out some of the shout. “You’re gonna draw attention to us, and trust me, dude, you do not need to act any weirder to get attention.”

“I was just trying to get your attention… I wasn’t actually gonna take one,”Well he was, but she had been planning on giving it back.

Leon practically almost shoved Tiamat away if it weren’t for the fact that all he had was her arm. He turned back to his smoke sticks and almost jumped on them, covering the boxes with his body like a mother bear protecting her cubs.

“I don’t believe you! Everyone wants my boxes. My smokes. They’re not safe here or anywhere. not from you. Not from them-” He pointed to random people. “Not from anyone! I’ll keep my sticks safe. From everyone. From everything. Forever! THEY’RE MINE! MIIINE!”

Clearly, the blonde was mental.
