Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard: The Sexuality Crisis
Magnus had never been attracted to boys before, only girls. He could appreciate the aesthetic of them, but never before had he wanted to date one. He was as straight as a rod-always had been, and always will be.
So it wasn’t gay of him to think Alex was cute. She was cute on both her female days and male days. It wasn’t gay at all.
Or: Magnus has a crisis over whether liking Alex is gay or not and everyone else is facepalming at him.
Sure, he had that period of time where he had questioned his sexuality after learning that heterosexuality wasn’t the only one, but everyone went through that. And by the time it was over, he had decided that he was nothing other than straight. The thought of being anything else never crossed his mind again.
But just because Magnus was straight didn’t mean he couldn’t appreciate the aesthetic of other guys from time to time. He wasn’t blind, he could tell whether people were attractive or not. And sometimes, those guys were pretty nice to look at for a moment or two longer than necessary. But he never once felt the desire to do anything romantic with them, because he wasn’t attracted to guys. It was as simple as that.
It includes deleted and extended scenes, but also different camera angles that were shown in the previews, but not in the actual episodes.
(Warning: EXTREMELY LONG POST WITH PICSPAM! It took a lot of time and effort to create this list so please refrain from stealing and reposting!!!)
The various previews and
trailers show many shots of Wang So riding to the Goryeo capital which never
made it into the aired episode.
Beating a Prince
This is not a deleted scene, just a long shot shown in
the preview, but not making it to the aired episode.
The Royal Apology Part 1
The episode 2 preview shows Wang So making a
disbelieving sneer, similar to the one he makes in the actual episode after he
hears HS demanding an apology from him, but the background behind him is
different just as is the camera angle – so it’s either a deleted scene, a
deleted part of this particular scene or simply a different version of it.
Royal Apology Part 2
Talking about different camera angles, it’s clear that
the PD used different camera angles in the previews and in the aired episodes.
Just compare these screencaps – in the drama version the PD changes camera
angle when he shows WS’s reaction after HS avoids his „apology“, however, in
the preview we see his reaction from the previous camera angle.
Eun’s Black Eye
The episode 2 preview shows Jimong, BA and Won
laughing at Eun’s black eye – while the scene stayed in the aired episode, this
particular moment never appeared in the final cut.
Queen and the 3rd Prince
An undescribed scene between Queen Yoo and Yo.
The Wolf Killer
The flashback showing WS surviving his fight with the
wolves ends with him throwing the torch while standing on the slope of the hill
with the Kangs below; however, the released stills reveal that the scene
actually continued with Wang So making it down the hill and confronting the
Kangs about their attempt to kill him.
A Stolen Look
Just before Wang So leaves Soo and Wook in the bamboo
forest, he steals a look at HS and while the moment stayed in the aired
episode, we only see him look away from her, not actually the moment of him
slowly, almost secretly looking at her. That moment is only shown in the
previews and you can see a hint of something more, something deeper in So’s eyes
The moment with little Wang So tied up as a hostage shown
as a memory in episode 14 was originally a scene deleted from episode 3. Hae
Soo came to his room to return his butterfly hairpin, but left when she saw him
having a nightmare about his childhood. Supposedly the Chungju Yoo clan
and Shinju Kang clan had a feud between them, so when the Yoo army was
attacking the Kangs for some reason, they put So up there to stop the attack.
In episode 3, So wakes up and follows Hae Soo to the stone piles and they
have a discussion about motherhood (a scene which was added in the
rebroadcast version) that leads So to eventually decide on covering up his
mother’s plot.This is also why when Wang So tells Hae Soo that he’ll be living
in the palace, she tells him to stop having nightmares. It would be such a
poignant scene because it’d show that even his nightmares are actually real
because So’s life has been one huge nightmare until he met Hae Soo.
The Ride to the Monastery
Originally, Wang So’s ride to the monastery in episode
3 was supposed to be slightly longer, just like his ride to Songak in episode
Burning It All Down
The final cut of episode 3 shows Wang So only in the
aftermath of setting the temple on fire; however the previews, stills and the
way how the camera follows him after he kills the head monk reveal that the
entire scene of So setting everything on fire was filmed.
Even the aftermath scene outside of the temple was
longer, revealing more of Wang So’s reaction to what he has done. In the drama,
we only see him completely destroyed and numb. However, based on this preview
still it’s clear that while he initially felt rage and satisfaction after
leaving the temple, as everything he did sunk in he started to feel remorse and
numbness which is shown in the aired version of the episode.

Sometimes life didn’t work out the way you wanted it to. Sometimes it worked exactly how you wanted it to. This was one of those times, and you aren’t exactly sure how you lucked out. Or how you are still lucky.
Your name is Y/N Y/L/N, a graphic design student in your junior, fourth, year of University. You spend your time doing both online and actual painted commissions, finishing assignments and binge watching Netflix. You’re not the most social person, an obvious introvert. You are quite the contrast to your room mates though.
Some of my lovely followers have been messaging me asking many interesting questions for tarot cards and spirit work. So I just wanted to make a post that answered all of them at once ^^ If you see your question here, I’m sorry, I had to rewrite the questions a bit because I couldn’t remember them all word for word off the top of my head. Brace yourselves, this is going to be a big one.
1. Do the meanings of tarot cards stay the same, or is it ok to apply my own meanings?
This depends how you are reading. To really connect with your client or querant, you need to be reading intuitively rather than just with the memorised readings. While the general meanings of the cards can be helpful, they don’t always apply and this can make your querant disconnect from the reading because they cannot see themselves in what is coming through.
To read intuitively, the first step is to read what is around each card rather than reading each card by itself and then interpreting as a whole. Often tarot presents you with a concept over 2 or 3 different cards and the cards will be interrelated.You may also find a particular card may have a feature on it that stands out to more than anything else, be it an animal, a pair of wings, or even a color. And these symbols will usually have a meaning to the querent in some way or another, but it is up to the reader to interpret them through intuition. If you are reading the cards intuitively you will also find the meanings of the cards will change for you on each reading. You’ll find that one card means waiting for one person, but may mean something entirely different to another person you are reading for. And this is all determined by your intuitive feelings that you receive during the reading. 2. Do you have to be born psychic? All of us are born with intuitive abilities, it’s a survival instinct. You ever have that feeling that you know what someone is going to say or you know that something will happen? Some people even know when their phone is going to ring before it even begins ringing. Or maybe you’ve had a time when you’ve been given a choice to do something, and you don’t know why, but you just know that you really shouldn’t make that choice. This is called your gut instincts or your intuition. This is the basis for really growing your psychic abilities. The beginning step here is choosing to trust your intuition more regularly. If you believe something is wrong, don’t do it. If you believe something is right, then do it. Choose to trust it, because trust helps to give a solid foundation that your intuition can grow on. To further grow your intuition, you need to begin practising meditation more regularly. Meditation can mean different things for different people. Some people can’t sit still, so walking meditation or yoga are really good ways to meditate if you can’t sit down for more than a couple of minutes. Buddhist temples sometimes offer free meditation classes in your area, so google around your home or city for some classes if you want to learn traditional meditation techniques. Don’t just stop at one class either, go regularly to make sure you really master it, even if you are told the same thing every lesson. Meditation takes practice, and even seasoned meditation practitioners can struggle sometimes. Be patient with yourself! You can also try singing or chanting meditations to assist you in your tarot readings or spirit work. Youtubing mantras will return some beautiful songs to you sung by many different artists. Find the ones you like and practice along with those. The English translations are gorgeous, so make sure you read the translation so that you understand the nature of what you are singing. They are all gorgeous, seriously. 3. How do I find out who my guides or deities are? This is up to you. Your guides can be any one, they can be Deities, Angels, Fairies, Ancestral spirits, nature spirits, etc. Literally any one can be a guide for you. I have a friend who went to a public park here in Sydney, met a tree spirit, and now regularly works with that tree for spiritual guidance. I have several goddesses, fairies and ancestors who are my guides for readings, however this varies for each reading. You don’t have to wait for deities or spirits to contact you either (although they will, trust me.) But if you are drawn to a deity or you like a deity that you have seen before, it is perfectly ok to approach them. Be careful here because if the deity is from another culture you will need to make sure that you work with that deity in a manner that is well researched and respectful to the culture. Please ensure that any deity you have approached is also not from a closed culture as well. The same idea applies to other types of spirits like fairies, angels, ancestors etc. It is perfectly OK to approach them first! 4. How do I connect more with the spirits or deities etc? Again, regular practice. You need to meet them half way! Make sure you are regularly practising prayer rituals, even if that means you just quickly light a candle before work and say hello. Give offerings of incense, food, or anything you feel they may like. Write them letters, sing or play music to them, just make an effort to connect. Just like any relationship, things wont be amazing from the get go. It may be awkward at first and you may feel uncomfortable. Persistence and time are all that are needed there. It wont be like angels descend and sing praises while you receive a blessing from a god. It will be a slow progression and growing of a really beautiful friendship. Give it time. But just as much as you speak, you must always listen as well. Meditation again is key to this, as it allows you to quieten the mind and focus on your guides. Practice is super important. Seek their presence and their energies and learn to recognise the energy “stamp” of a particular spirit. With regular practice daily, you should be confident within a few weeks to a month at least to begin feeling the energies of these spirits and who they are. 5. How do I work with spirits and deities in my tarot readings? Once you have begun to practice regular contact both speaking and listening with your spirits or deities, and you have begun to recognise their energy signatures, you can simply ask them to join you for a reading. A lot of the time though, they may show up unannounced. Regular practice in recognising energies when they arrive to a reading and practice with listening and seeing their messages can help you to also identify spirits or deities that you have never met before who may be working with your querent. When you are doing a reading, write down any images, ideas or words that you are seeing or hearing, even if you aren’t sure if it the relevant. It may become relevant later in the reading or not at all. All that matters here is that you acknowledge the messages and trust yourself. 6. Do tarot cards have a yes or no meaning? Yes they can, kind of. The best way to get a yes or no answer is to ask the question and then pull at 8 cards to look at the issue overall. When you see the overall issue, continue pulling cards until you see the end of the “process.” The end will have the yes or no answer. 7. How do you use tarot to look at deeper subconscious stuff? If your querent is struggling with something like mental illness for example, you need to look into their past for the answer. Often times they will not remember the particular issues in their past that have caused part of the illness because the subconscious buries this stuff as a coping method. But if you look at their thought processes, you can take each thought process one by one and question what created this thought cycle. An example would be “I am not good enough”. What made that person think that? You need to look at their past and see what they were exposed to. Then you can challenge the thought process by looking at the actual evidence. Did that event actually dictate the self worth of that person? Nope. Most likely what happened was caused by some selfish dickhead and in reality, the behaviour of that selfish dickhead has nothing to do with the self worth of your querent. It is just that their mind misunderstood the issue due to a variety of factors at the time. You can then change the thought pattern by using energy healing and positive affirmation. (It takes fighting to defeat these things, so the querent will need to put in regular effort to heal whenever the thought cycle arises. But once the painful experienced deep in the subconscious is brought to the surface, it can be dealt with easily with persistence. It is best to suggest a positive affirmation is practised every time they experience one of their symptoms.) 8. Is tarot a doorway to evil? No, that is what religious parents tell their children to stop them getting involved in “evil occult” practices. It’s just like saying marijuana is the gateway drug. These kinds of statements don’t really help anyone. If someone wants to do drugs they will. In the same way, tarot has nothing to do with the choices of someone getting involved in some of the darker crafts. In the end, it is that person’s choice, and blaming tarot isn’t helping people. On the contrary, I find tarot to be a very healing tool. You can use it to understand not only situations, but also yourself and other people. It has helped me numerous times to figure out what on earth is going on with my own mental illness, and I use it to help others in the same way. Tarot has nothing to do with darker crafts, demons, satan etc. They are instead a wonderful tool to contact healing guides, goddess, spirits etc and bring love and light to many people who need it. 9. How do you know that you are not just schizophrenic? Schizophrenia has a lot more symptoms than just hearing and seeing things, and there are many types of schizophrenia. If we keep accusing people who hear and see things of being schizophrenic, then we are only helping to spread ignorance and stigma around this debilitating illness, which doesn’t help anyone who actually suffers from this illness or knows someone who does. There is a clear line between a psychic medium and a schizophrenic. Psychic mediums can receive information from spirits that they wouldn’t other wise know, and this helps to confirm who they are contacting. Often, someone’s ancestors pop up in readings, and a psychic medium can confirm details of that ancestors life that only the querant will know. This kind of information can be anything, but some notable examples I’ve experienced are being able to describe the exact speech patterns of a deceased relative, their mannerisms, and past childhood experiences of that ancestor that I would not know otherwise. This kind of information will not be available to someone suffering schizophrenia, rather they will suffer with false delusions that cannot be confirmed. Additionally, psychic mediums can control the information coming in. If we do not want to hear or see anything, we can simply say no. This allows us to lead very normal lives, while some suffers of schizophrenia can really struggle to do so (Not saying they cannot lead a normal life, but it is very difficult, just like it is with any other mental illness.) Schizophrenics may also struggle to turn off these experiences in the same way that a psychic medium can, which is why the condition can be so debilitating. Rather than just accusing everyone who claims to be able to hear and see spirits of being schizophrenic, it is better to educate each other on the symptoms so that we can learn the true nature of this illness. These are some of the symptoms below. As you can see, it is more extensive than just seeing or hearing things. Behavioural: social isolation, disorganised behaviour, aggression, agitation, compulsive behaviour, excitability, hostility, repetitive movements, self-harm, or lack of restraint Cognitive: thought disorder, delusion, amnesia, belief that an ordinary event has special and personal meaning, belief that thoughts aren’t one’s own, disorientation, memory loss, mental confusion, or slowness in activity Mood: anger, anxiety, apathy, feeling detached from self, general discontent, loss of interest or pleasure in activities, elevated mood, or inappropriate emotional response Psychological: hallucination, paranoia, hearing voices, depression, fear, persecutory delusion, or religious delusion Speech: circumstantial speech, incoherent speech, rapid and frenzied speaking, or speech disorder Also common: false belief of superiority, fatigue, impaired motor coordination, or lack of emotional response
10. What if I see evil spirits and demons when I do a reading for someone intuitively? This can happen sometimes, and this has happened to me. Sometimes this person has an evil attachment on the astral, or you may find that during a reading you are actually attacked on the astral by this attachment. You need to make sure you have protective crystals with you, such as pyrite, obsidian arrowheads or black tourmaline. Make sure you have protective spells over you if you practice witchcraft, and that you can cleanse the evil you are experiencing. If you are using crystals during your readings, stop using your clear quartz or celestite (whatever it is you are using to help you get there) and switch to your protective stones until whatever is attacking you goes away. You can then cleanse with fluorite. This comes from personal experience, I did a reading and got attacked by some sort of flying demon thing on the astral that was attached to this person I was doing the reading for. I was like K WELL FUCK OFF BRO and immediately swapped to my black tourmaline, started burning sage in the room, and placing white energy over my client to protect them. The demon left, but I had to do a pretty thorough cleanse afterwards. Like fuck off you demon fucktard, can’t you see I’m busy? GOSH I don’t have time to deal with your shit today.
That’s it for the questions, I hope this huge post helped some of you lovelies who messaged me~!
Requested by @samiralucy; High school AU; When you like your best friend, things starts to become awkward.
Words count: 1576
Being in love with your best friend is
the hardest thing anyone could go through.
You will begin to fear your feelings and
try hard to fight with them anyway possible. Because it’s well known. Once you
confess, that beautiful friendship, that person who is always by your side,
that friend you depend on the most, will come to ignore you and things will
never be the same.
That’s what you feared so you consoled
your feelings for that person sitting next to you, sipping on his tomato juice.
Oh Sehun. The one who stayed by your side on your hardest times. When you
almost dropped out of High school, he made you change your mind. When you had
strong fight with your father, he was the one to come to you and comfort
Hey could you possibly do one where the reader is younger than Tommy like early 20s but they’ve always had a thing and he does something which causes a huge argument and they don’t speak anymore but then the reader winds Tommy up and makes him really jealous when Michael comes along by flirting with him and all over him all the time and it brings out the worst in Tommy thanks !!
a/n: this isn’t the next one on my list but it’s kind of time sensitive so i’m gonna do it now lol. also this is short i’m sorry.
Watching the Superbowl had always been a huge tradition with your family. There was food, there was alcohol, and there were a lot of people, always.
You had moved to New York with Shawn just a few months ago, and he knew that you were a little bummed about not being able to watch the game with your family. With classes and everything else that was going on, you just couldn’t afford to leave for that long. It’s not that you didn’t want to spend the time with Shawn, because of course you do, you would just have liked to spend some time with your family.
Your family’s team wasn’t playing, but that didn’t stop you from getting overly involved.
Me after Star vs Season 2 finale: You know, I really need to stop getting so involved in shipping, everyone knows it only brings ears. Besides, Disney has Milo Murphy and I haven’t watched a tonne of episodes
It probably won’t be really heavy on romance, so there’s nothing for me to take out of proportio-
I saw pics of the HTGAWM actors participating in a triathlon and they were wearing Disney shirts. And that made me think of how much the sweethearts in Coliver need to stop getting involved in murders and just have a Disneyland date.
People who “hate kids” seriously need to stop pursuing careers around children??? I have no idea why certain teachers get jobs in education, KNOWING they will be surrounded by kids, and still complain or act rudely to their students out of spite. Stop getting jobs that heavily involve children if you’re just going to act like an ass towards them all the time!!!
Okay y’all so im typing this from the grave because I think the episode actually killed me.
We got a whole lot of drama and action in a small amount of time, the episodes are really picking up the pace and its leaving me feeling like I’m about to have a stroke and I love it
1. THE BLOSSOMS ARE SO FUCKING TWISTED AND CREEPY
So we all knew something was up with this family but this takes things to a whole other level. Like the freaking maple tapping ceremony and banquet…. like who does all of this for fricken maple syrup?? they are nuts man. And don’t get me started on Cheryl at the end, what the actual hell? Polly you better get outta there fast girl.
my guy, my dude, you just gotta chill out. take a break stop getting involved in absolutely everything. I know you’re heart is in the right place but sometimes you just gotta take a seat. ( and he totally deserved Val dumping his ass he was a terrible boyfriend)
3. Veronica, you sweet angel. I just wanted to crawl through the screen and give her a hug she is so pure.
4. also nice seeing Betty be there for her I love their friendship so much
5. MAMA COOPER I CANT BELIVE IM SAYIG THIS BUT I LOVE YOU. DONT GO CRAZY ON US, GO WRITE FOR THE BLUE AND GOLD. POLLY STILL LOVES YOU. EVERYTHING IS GONNA BE OK. FUCK HAL.
6. seriously though I think mama cooper has something going on like betty and thats where betty’s problems come from.
7. like when mama cooper threw the brick you saw her whole persona and body language change much like Dark Betty with Chuck.
8. yo i don’t trust Ethel, idk why but I don’t. she seems shady
we were so BLESSED fam. The first scene on her bed had me screaming cause I wasn’t expecting bughead so soon in the episode…but there they were about to have a makeout session at like 7 am until mama coper ruined all their fun;) and then we get protective boyfriend Juggie while talking to Cheryl which had me squealing. Then their scene with Betty freaking out and jughead comforting her and basically being the best boyfriend ever. and the collar grab and the HUG. honestly I swooned more at that hug than any of their kisses because it was so pure. I actually died and got resurrected. And then the two of them inviting mama cooper to write at the blue and gold I can’t handle this.
10. guys my heart can’t handle this.
11. also the fact that mama cooper is just so cool the juggie makes me so happy
12. and bughead once again show how a couple should be. supportive and loving and everything good in the world.
so that ends my rant because I need to remember how to breathe and function as a normal human being again. I probably missed a bunch of stuff but I can’t be bothered to remember. BUT BUGHEAD IS STILL SAILING AND BEING PURE AND HEALTHY SO MY HEART IS SMILING!<33
