For @gabo-gabo-reyes (and the rare pair shippers out there)

Reaper and Roadhog finds themselves in a predicament and Mako gets a blast from the past….

I’m in Zona’s heaven

Let’s just start with the very first interaction they have at the beginning of the series.

Zoro came down just to talk to HER. He was teaching her the way of a man and that’s just so manly and charming. She should have fallen for him, damn it! This isn’t the first time by the way… he has done this so many times.

Uhm… Franky entrusted Nami to keep Zoro’s swords.

He  could  just ask Luffy to do so, but then he CHOSE Nami for that task… something fishy~~.

All right! Those swords are heavy… we know but then… you can carry them around just like that…

And duh! keeping those swords with you most of the time… * meeee squealllls*

Zoro should have seen this. His gal is badass too.

O.o… I’m impressed. Nami-gal is really sumthing.

RUN! RUN to him…


If Usopp was there to catch Sanji, then I assumed she did the same to Zoro after undid the shackle. Zoro must have fallen down to his knees and she caught him. That must be the case. But damn! the scene was cut off for this to happen,

look at that drowsy face… Nami’s worried…

Ouh yes, Nami! Your man is back!
[ She looks happy. Does she love that face? That face when he’s about to go crazy… in bed. Muahahaha]

Uh… nothing… just… since Nami knew those two will most likely fight, she butted in.

No matter how Zoro hates to be ordered around, he still listens to her… (p/s: he’s looking at her, miahahaha)

And this, 

Does that mean, Nami was checking him out?

YES! SHE DID. Look at how far they sat from each other yet she could notice the mushroom in Zoro’s haramaki. MUSHROOM IN ZORO’S HARAMAKI!!! ~The chemistry~

This gal did check out Zoro’s lower part… So good to know. Ah~ I’m dead.. x_x

Neighbours

A/N : Part IV!!! It’s been a long, long, long time. (almost a year ffs) But here it is! Hopefully, the next updates will be much faster. Please do anticipate and criticism are very much appreciated. ENJOY GUYS!! 

Part I  Part II Part III Part IV 


You weren’t exactly sure where your position with Jungkook stood from then. Your relationship, if you could even call it that, was complicated. Twisted, bundled and full of tangled webs of confusion.

He was Jungkook and you were, well you. 

And with the way Jiyoon hated you, it was safe to say that associating yourself with the likes of him wasn’t the safest option. Neither was it an idea you particularly thought was good.

But it was fair to say that you’d always loved taking chances and Jungkook was a risk you were willing to take- willing to play against Jiyoon. 

Even if you didn’t know it just yet.

And you weren’t quite sure where in place that car journey put you even after you’d spent hours into the night pondering about it, racking your mind for something to ease you, some type of closure.

Secret Encounters - Dean Winchester x Reader (Single Father AU)

Title: Secret Encounters

Pairing: Dean Winchester x Reader

Word Count: —

Warnings: Age gap, Reader is twenty something years old

Summary: Imagine being in a secret relationship with your best friend’s father, Dean Winchester.

A/N: I read something that inspired this, so I am not the one that came up with it in the first place but this is all still mine so enjoy!

He was tall, dark and handsome. How more cheesy could it get?

Whenever you stared at him you felt like time would stop. How was it even possible? The only words you could think of to describe him were exactly those. Alright maybe not the dark part. Whenever he’d smile at you or anyone around him it felt like the entire room would light up and your heart would soar, a smile forming on your lips too. It felt almost contagious but he had such a kind soul, so selfless, generous and kind that it was impossible not to be happy with his own happiness.

The first time you’d met him, as many you thought, you’d taken him to be more… rough. The full lips and sharp jaw along with the broad shoulders and strong arms as well as the jeans and black shirt and flannels he’d wear intimidated you for some reason as well as attracted you. He looked kinda scary at first, and when he spoke that deep gruff voice would make anyone think that he was a tough man but in reality when you got to know him he was such a gentle person. Dean Winchester was the definition of ‘Don’t judge a book by its cover’, or at least up to some point.

His love for classic rock and his Impala was true, as was the fact that he was a ladies man. With a killer smile like that he could have anyone that he wanted and it was only proven by the numerous nights he spent at bars and then at some lady’s place. Well, lately that had started changing but from what you’d gotten to know and what you’d usually see he was a total flirt. Moreover, his love for pie and burgers along with childlike behavior was obvious by the boyish grin he’d sport sometimes. He was a kid at heart yet… such a real man at other times, knowing exactly what to do and how.

Her favorite bedtime story

“Will you walk into my parlour?” said the Hypno to the Doll,

“‘Tis the sparkliest little parlour that’s sure to make you loll.
The way into my parlour is down a winding stair,
And I’ve a many glittery things to show when you are there.”

“Oh no, no,” said the little Doll, “to ask me is in vain,
For who falls down your winding stair
-can ne'er come up again.”

“I’m sure you must be weary, dear, you’re staring at the wall;
Will you rest upon my little bed?” said the Hypno to the Doll.
“There are spinning spirals drawn around; the candle brightly glows,
And if you like to rest your eyes, it’s fine to let them close!”

“Oh no, no,” said the little Doll, “for I’ve often heard it said,
They never, never wake again, who sleep upon your bed!”

Said the cunning Hypno to the Doll, “Dear thing what can I do,
To prove the warm affection I’ve come to feel for you?
I have some wondrous crystals, the best that ever shined;
I’m sure you’ve seen good ones - would you care to peek at mine?”

“Oh no, no”, said the little Doll, “kind Sir, that cannot be,
I’ve heard about your crystals, and I do not wish to see!”

“Sweet creature!” said the Hypno, “you’re pretty as you’re wise,
How lovely are your features, now look into my eyes!
I’ve a little looking-glass upon my parlour shelf,
If you’ll gaze but one moment, dear, you’ll surely lose yourself.”

“I thank you, gentle Sir,” she said, “for what you’re pleased to say,
And if I weren’t so busy now, I’d surely love to stay.”

The Hypno shrugged as if to say, the choice was hers to make,
But well he knew her weakened will he’d now begun to break:
So he wove a subtle web, meant to comfort and to calm,
Soon her eyes were blinking slow; he had her in his palm.

Whispering into her ear again, and urging her to sleep,
“Go deeper, deeper, pretty Doll, never have you gone so deep;
Your heavy eyes will close now - in your mind your thoughts will stop;
There’s nothing now for you to do, but let yourself just drop!”

Alas, alas! how very soon this little hypnodoll,
Hearing his soothing, powerful words, did surely start to fall;
So feeling good she under went, and soon began to find,
Thinking only of his brilliant eyes, she was giving up her mind.
Imagining his crystal’s shine - poor hypno'ed thing! At last,
He brought her back to herself, then dropped her just as fast.
He’d led her down the winding stair, and gently nudged her then;
Her mind was lost forever - so she ne'er came up again!

And now dear little dollies, who may this story read,
My words have begun to dull your mind, by now you’ll start to need,
To listen to this Hypnotist, obey my beck and call,
And wish it was you in this tale of the Hypno and the Doll.

Me again this is a promp (if you'd like): Maggie and Alex are getting physical in a supply room at the DEO and the whole crew hears alex screams and when they're finished she just walk out awkwardly and id love you forever if you could throw in a Line where Winn make a comment about alex doing things with her finger (referencing that scene where she says she could get him 2 talk painfully in different ways with her finger) Tnx luv u bye mum

Vasquez turns off the security cameras for them periodically.

Alex couldn’t be more grateful.

Unfortunately, Alex also couldn’t be more loud.

Maggie tries – whenever they’re getting physical in public spaces (which, it seems, Alex can’t get enough of, and neither, quite frankly, can Maggie) – to keep Alex quiet. 

Kissing her mouth, swallowing her screams, while she palms her breast under her shirt, pumps her other hand under Alex’s boxers.

And sometimes – always with Alex’s eager nods, always with Alex’s desperate okays, always with Alex’s needy begging – Maggie puts her hand over Alex’s mouth while Maggie occupies her mouth with licking and sucking at her nipple under Alex’s yanked up shirt, her pushed-aside bra.

Maggie’s hand cupped over Alex’s mouth is meant to keep her quiet. Meant to keep them subtle. Meant to keep them somewhat low-key.

But it’s also meant – of course it’s meant – to turn Alex on even harder, and god, does it work.

So when Alex screams through her orgasms, helpless and writhing and all over Maggie’s lips on her breast, all over Maggie’s thigh between her leg, it’s against Maggie’s firm hand covering her mouth.

But the sound of Maggie’s name pours through Maggie’s skin, between the gaps in her fingers, and resonates down the hall and into the command center.

Vasquez smirks and Winn covers his ears and J’onn mutters something about it being bad enough how loudly his daughter thinks and Pam from HR groans because how many times has she lectured them about sex in the workplace?

Alex’s uniform is – for the most part – properly arranged when they stride, flying casual, back into the command center a few minutes later, and Maggie’s hair is – for the most part – in place, though the agents who are distinctly not looking at their commanding officer and her girlfriend could swear her hair was up in a ponytail, not loose around her shoulders, when she and Agent Danvers strode off to “access some archived case files.”

“Sounds like you’re not the only one who knows at least six different ways to make someone scream with their index finger, Alex,” Winn splurts before he sprints away from Alex’s wide eyes and Maggie’s dropped jaw.

“It wasn’t even my index finger, though,” Maggie murmurs when she remembers how to speak again, and Alex blushes an even deeper shape of red.

“Agent Danvers, you’d better go find your brother: he can’t be hiding from your inevitable revenge in a corner all day, he has work to get done.”

“Yes sir,” Alex nods crisply, and Maggie starts to follow.

“And leave Detective Sawyer here. I’m always happy when you are, Alex, but my ears have had quite enough for one morning.”

“Sloth wasn’t Trisha, so it wasn’t sad that Edward had to kill her.”

Um, okay… But the fact that Sloth had Trisha’s memories and feelings even though she wanted to reject them says something and clearly you’re not looking into things. Did Lust’s memories being ‘fake’ stop her from accepting them as hers? No. Sloth’s is no less relevant then. Envy also has feelings too. But he views himself differently along with Greed. If Lust is anybody to go by, those memories are theirs.

Sloth specifically states she simply doesn’t want to grow attached to Ed and Al. And that, even though she shouldn’t, she feels like she could love them. 

Does this sound like the words of somebody who’s feelings are fake, just because she technically isn’t who she looks to be?

Does this look like the fact of somebody who’s feelings and memories and experience is irrelevant?

I think not. Lust having “no soul” didn’t make one single difference.  She still had feelings. 

Also, to say it’s not dark that Edward killed Sloth, you’re being ignorant and ignoring a lot of details. Brotherhood/Mangahood Edward won’t kill no matter what, but 03 Edward was forced to change his philosophy because of Greed. That’s dark in itself. But this person was also somebody who points out any faults they can about 03 to make Brotherhood look better in comparison, even though Brotherhood has its own faults… That aside,

I think that, considering the way Lust feels about it, it’s up for interpretation. Sure, some could argue that Envy wants to reject his previous self and isn’t who Hohenheim made him to be, but I think he’s mostly angry that Hohenheim abandoned him, not as angry over who Hohenheim wanted him to be. Sure he wants to find his own identity, but none of the homunculi have ALL of the memories of their technical previous life. And the fact that they actually have those memories could be taken as what Barry the Chopper says, but Lust begs to differ. And I also personally think that those are their feelings and memories. But it’s so subtle and meant to interpreted however the viewer interprets it. So to say that Sloth without a doubt isn’t Trisha, is invalidating her memories and feelings even though they are clearly bothering her, but at the same time… To say that she is completely Trisha is also kind of rejecting who she wants to be. I don’t really know what more to say about this, but Sloth isn’t just pointless angst. She’s a better character than people give her credit for. For a really good post on her, go to: http://boob-tube-blog.tumblr.com/post/61623795176/the-women-of-fullmetal-alchemist-sloth
You won’t regret it. ;) It gives a very understandable theory on how Sloth represents her sin:

In a way, both Lust and Sloth’s arcs, despite being each other’s foils, are about regaining agency when they’re tied into the male characters who created them. In Lust’s case, this comes from her redefining the memories as not ones that belonged to the alchemist who created her, but to herself: “These memories are mine,” she specifically says. Her desire to become like her former self is about her own search for meaning and definition, not about replacing someone’s girlfriend. Likewise, Sloth’s desire to take the opposite approach - to rid herself of those memories and that legacy - are also about escaping from the clutches of the boys who created her, and forging her own identity and destiny. Lust wants to reclaim, but Sloth wants to build from scratch.But building requires labor, which is not something you expect from someone whose name is Sloth. So let’s get to debunking another point: the idea that the 2003 homunculi, and Sloth in particular, don’t embody their sins.But Sloth wants to escape. And what is more slothful than escapism?That’s the thing about Sloth; her sin isn’t represented in the literal, obvious way that her Mangahood counterpart’s is, with him not enjoying his endless toil and complaining about everything being a “bother.” But remember that thing I said about the 2003 anime being more subtle? This is yet another example of that. Sloth doesn’t just come from not wanting to physically exert yourself or do literal, physical, tangible kinds of “work,” like Roy Mustang’s everlasting aversion to paperwork.Sloth can be in the mind as well. Sloth can be about a lack of desire for mental exertion. This is where that idea of “escapism” comes in: letting your mind fly off to another world rather than facing your issues head-on. Running away from your problems, because you don’t want to put in the work to properly deal with them.This is where Sloth embodies her sin and what I mean about the narrative condemning her means rather than her desire. Her plan to kill the Elric brothers, so she just doesn’t have to face the fact that she’s the reincarnation of their mother, is the easy way out. She just doesn’t have to be confronted with it anymore. She can pretend that connection doesn’t exist. Allowing them to live and finding another way to create her own identity and reclaim her agency, that takes work. Being Sloth, she doesn’t want to do that work.This is symbolized by her powers being water-based. Water is the element associated with laziness, with “going with the flow.” Water takes the shape of its container, it moves with the current of the body it’s contained within. It doesn’t challenge, it doesn’t “make waves” (it needs the moon to do that). She doesn’t have the strength to challenge the idea that she is Trisha Elric. She simply just wants to erase the whole problem by getting rid of the two living proofs of her origins, so she doesn’t have to face them anymore.

That entire Osaka incident just proves how deeply JK cares for JM. I’ve seen several versions of that fan cam, and all angles combined it’s just so endearing. Subtle, yet apparently it meant the world to JM. It’s one of the most genuine and coy smiles I’ve seen on JM and that’s saying a lot. 

anonymous asked:

how is comparing skin color to a food racist? if someone's skin is literally the color of chocolate or caramel or even bread, how is that racist? you'd compare the color of someone's hair to the color of food, wouldn't you? maybe even their eyes? how is it any different with skin? comparing a color to the color of something else isn't wrong. especially when it's not done in a demeaning way (such as comparing it to the color of something gross/disgusting)

The way I see it, in my experience as an Asian woman reading various books and just simply living in society, is that comparing skin colour to a food is mainly seen applied to people of colour. And are sometimes labelled as such, from white authors. White authors, as in, people who are in positions of privilegeWriting with Colour is a fantastic blog and has very many informative posts as to why comparisons between skin and food are not PC. A couple of reasons why comparing skin colour to food is racist (I’ll also link the places where I got the information from):

1. Fetishisation. Typically seen in women when they’re catcalled, like “I’d like some of that honey!” It’s used as a direct reference to her skin colour and therefore perpetuates the idea that a woman’s skin colour is tied to her sexual worth. (Don’t even get me started on saying Asian’s are ‘exotic’ oml) Even with men, and describing POC as “chocolate” or “cocoa”, it has the ability to make people feel uncomfortable and to be seen as something to be ‘consumed’. (It also has links to colonialism so, I suggest if anyone has described POC as ‘chocolate’ or ‘cocoa’, to replace those descriptions.) 

2. Links to Colonialism. Explaining what was just said in the brackets, words like ‘cocoa’, ‘coffee’, and ‘hazelnut’ have clear links to the slave trade for POC. It’s not a good idea to compare a person to a trade that has economically and socially oppressed them for centuries, and still do. 

3. Don’t dance around it. This is just my personal opinion, but the whole tirade of avoiding using the words to describe people (black, brown, white, pink, beige, etc.) and instead using food, is just, making the problem worse (and doesn’t necessarily make for better writing)? There’s this post where it describes the different ways of describing POC without comparisons to food. (I’ve said it once. I’ll say it again. Writing with Colour is an amazing blog.)

Skin colour itself was used to determine various social and economical positions within society (ie. Apartheid with racial segregation, genocide in the colonisation of Australia, etc.). Hair and eye colour were not. This is a matter of white people writing about black people as if they were ‘coffee’, asian people as if they were ‘maple syrup’, etc. 

Even today, there are still economical and social gaps between POC and white people (this is a result of the systematic and internalised racism of previous generations). By using that history in a fetishised way, and by using it against them like white people did when slave trade were happening, even if it is subtle and not meant to be demeaning, it’s a revelation of unconscious perceptions of races that are not your own. 

If, however, they are your own race, then its up to you. Your prerogative.

He watched her play with the little music box he had made for her. He realized she didn’t require extravagant gifts or confessions of his undying love, she just wanted to know she was loved. Subtle, small, kind gestures meant more to her than anything else. He crafted the gift to her, writing scriptures all over it to ensure her protection whenever he wasn’t around.

It was his silent way of saying ‘I love you.’

A Beautiful Little Nod to Witchcraft

Warning: There will be spoilers below regarding the live-action Beauty and the Beast. If you wish to avoid such spoilers, please keep scrolling.

Okay, so everyone who doesn’t mind spoilers still with me? Great!

Now, I don’t often write about movies per se on this blog. I do make mention regarding witchcraft in the media, but usually such moments reference witches in the same vein as Harry Potter or the Wicked Witch of the West. But there are moments in media when witchcraft is both subtle and meant to be portrayed in a rather positive manner.

But still, it’s rare to find a film that will take a witch and make her be ever-present and in the same role that a woman likely had during the film’s respective period.

Tonight, my boyfriend and I took a trip to a local theater and watched Beauty and the Beast. Not only are we fans of Disney, but we are avid lovers of art. The opportunity to see French Rococo couldn’t be missed by my beeb, and I couldn’t resist the opportunity to see what they’d do with both the writing and the music.

We all know the story: a prince, self-absorbed, surrounded himself only with beauty, and denied an ugly hag shelter from a storm. She warns him against making the same mistake, and he denies her yet again. She then reveals herself to be a beautiful enchantress and curses him to look like a beast, trapped in his castle, until the last petal of an enchanted rose fell and forces him to be a beast for eternity, or until he falls in a love which is returned… whichever came first.

Now, if I recall correctly, this enchantress doesn’t feature much in the animated film beyond the exposition. In the live-action remake, however, she is a character all to her own, present from the start of the film to the very end.

Agathe is mentioned in the film at several points, as the spinster beggar asking for change in the streets of the village. In town, she’s portrayed as the outcast not due to being a bookworm like Belle, but because she’s an older, unmarried woman who doesn’t have money.

Josh, why are you pointing her out in this manner?

Let’s take a look at the setting of the film. It’s established later on that Belle’s mother died of plague when it had spread to Paris. The doctor’s mask that the Prince notices is of the same design as that which was used during the time of the Black Death - the bubonic plague. This places the film at taking place roughly twenty years after the plague had struck - 1368, give or take a couple of years. At the time of the plague, all sorts of scapegoats were targeted as reasons for the plague: cats, witches, demons, and even putrid smells.

The qualifications for what made someone a witch varied from region to region, time period to time period. However, a common theme was a woman who was single and middle-aged (at the time, this was believed to mean that she’d been denied the blessings of a husband and children from God), who might not fit in with the crowd (for a variety of reasons, ranging from mental illness to introverted tendencies), who has knowledge of herbal remedies (not only did this imply that she was educated, it was also a threat to the medical field at the time, and was cause for accusation by the male-dominated field), and who may own a pet (though people have had pets for much of human history, it was sometimes believed that to own an animal that wasn’t livestock simply for the pleasure of companionship was an indicator of having a familiar - especially if the animal was one that was generally considered wild, such as a bird, cat, or reptile).

Agathe certainly fits the bill for many of these qualities. She’s roughly middle-aged, and a beggar. Later in the film, she rescues Maurice and takes him into her home - a small lean-to in the woods - where she provides some tea (it’s implied here, too that the tea was made from wild herbs) to help him recover, and where it’s revealed that she also has an owl to keep her company.

She’s treated with disdain by many in the village, but as the film goes on, the viewer begins to realize that she is, in fact, the enchantress from the start of the film. By the time of the climax - the conflict between the townsfolk and the servants/furniture at the castle - she is seen calmly walking through the battle and toward the west wing where the rose is kept.

She watches as Belle and the Prince confess their love for each other before reversing the curse for the happy ever after that comes with such fairy tales.

So why are you so excited about this?

It’s the gentle treatment and subtle nod to historical witchcraft that surprised me. The film is exquisite, but as a pagan member of the audience who has studied European history, this was a treat to see incorporated into the movie.

In other renditions, Agathe could easily be turned into the villain for the sole purpose of being a witch, but since the story focuses on Belle and the Prince, and their conflict with Gaston, it gave her room to be more of a guardian. And as such, she fulfills her role as an indirect teacher in the situation. Her curse was meant to be a lesson for the Prince to learn from, and a reminder that actions have consequences. There is an expression of relief on her face as she breaks the curse, showing that though she placed it in the first place, she desperately hoped that the Prince would learn and grow.

In Conclusion…

Beauty and the Beast features many positive aspects - an openly gay character portrayed in positive sense, a strong female lead, respect for the source material, and masterful artwork. But as a pagan, seeing witchcraft treated subtly and respectfully in the film, with a nod toward the historical side to it rather than making Agathe overtly witchy during the course of the story, was uplifting and encouraging. She’s not dressed in black and constantly muttering over a cauldron. And while - like any fairy tale - she does have some serious moments of cinematic magic, what makes her a witch in the film is not her magic but her place in society.

All of this is my opinion based on what I understand of history and the story. It could be that the way they treated witchcraft was unintentional because they wanted to keep the story focused on the main characters. However, it’s treated with such delicacy that it makes me wonder if it was truly intentional on Disney’s part. Whether it was or not, it’s a pleasant surprise for me, and I’m happy to see such a subtle witch in the media!

Keep an eye out for where witches may be in the movies and books you read! Sometimes, you may be surprised as to where they hide and what roles they play! And of course, learn! Had I not known about the historical context and its link to witchcraft, I likely would have missed out on these details! As witches, it is important for us to know our history, and to understand how far we’ve come!

Blessed Be! )O(

Leonard: Hey.

Sheldon: I brought Amy here to show her some of the work I’m doing.

Amy: It’s very impressive, for theoretical work.

Sheldon: Do I detect a hint of condescension?

Amy: I’m sorry, was I being too subtle? I meant compared to the real-world applications of neurobiology, theoretical physics is, what’s the word I’m looking for? Hmm, cute.

Leonard and Howard together: Oooh!

Sheldon: Are you suggesting the work of a neurobiologist like Babinski could ever rise to the significance of a physicist like Clarke-Maxwell or Dirac?

Amy: I’m stating it outright. Babinski eats Dirac for breakfast and defecates Clarke-Maxwell.

Sheldon: You take that back.

Amy: Absolutely not. My colleagues and I are mapping the neurological substrates that subserve global information processing, which is required for all cognitive reasoning, including scientific inquiry, making my research ipso facto prior in the ordo cognoscendi. That means it’s better than his research, and by extension, of course, yours.

Leonard: I’m sorry, I’m-I’m still trying to work on the defecating Clark Maxwell, so…

Sheldon: Excuse me, but a grand unified theory, insofar as it explains everything, will ipso facto explain neurobiology.

Amy: Yes, but if I’m successful, I will be able to map and reproduce your thought processes in deriving a grand unified theory, and therefore, subsume your conclusions under my paradigm.

Sheldon: That’s the rankest psychologism, and was conclusively revealed as hogwash by Gottlob Frege in the 1890s!

Amy: We appear to have reached an impasse.

Sheldon: I agree. I move our relationship terminate immediately.

Amy: Seconded.

Sheldon: There being no objections…

All: No, uh-uh.

Sheldon: The motion carries. Good day, Amy Farrah Fowler.

Amy: Good day, Sheldon Cooper.

Howard: Women, huh? Can’t live without them, can’t successfully refute their hypotheses.

Sheldon: Amen to that.


4 x 03 - The Zazzy Substitution

Types of Majik-

While there are a lot of different practices of majik, or magick, or however the fuck you want to spell it, at the end of the day it all boils down to this (pictured above).

I thought I should explain a few things, just to avoid confusion.

~

Positive majik- this is majik done with good intentions, obviously.
Negative majik- majik done with no good in mind, also obvious haha

-

Motion- majik that directs itself between the one doing the majik, and other energy. You are redirecting your energy and intent to something of a different energy. It will entail use of emotions, multiple energies, changing something, fire, air, and is intended to be offensive (by this I mean it will affect someone else, not necessarily fighting terms here). Warm colors are often affiliated with majik of motion, so using colors that fit this while doing majik may better help your intentions.
Sustain- majik that directs inwards, not necessarily from yourself to you, but rather it holds something in place, together or from change. This entails calmness (being at peace during majik practicing will help- think protection spell as an example, if you are anxious it won’t be as strong as if you were calm while performing the spell), a singular energy (even if you are putting a protection spell on someone else, their energy is not being used, just yours. This would make it singular.), retaining and not changing something, water, earth, and is usually defensive (used to counter balance an energy). The cooler colors can help a lot with intent for sustaining.

Both positive and negative majik can go via motion or sustaining.

-

Aggressive majik- majik that’s upfront, in your face, I suppose. It’s meant to either make something happen (motion- EX: aggression spells/curses) or keep something from happening (sustain- EX: protection spells/calming spells)
Passive majik- majik that’s more subtle. It’s meant for information (motion- EX: Ouija boards, premonitions) (sustain- EX: empathic, healing)

Ethereal majik-
This type of majik is special in the way that it is completely neutral. It isn’t positive, negative, motion, sustaining, aggresive or passive. But at the same time, it is all of those things. Its the majik of paradox and contradiction. It is used for recycling energy, cycling energy, it creates and destroys itself yet stays sustained in itself and it is the bridge between planes. Unless you are an ethereal being, such as the ethereal fae (which are very limited in number), or nobodies/shadow people, you can not perform this majik, as it doesn’t agree with non Ethereal energies. You can contract with ethereal beings and they can do it for you, but you alone can not.

Fire- Aggressive, sexual desire, emotions. Creates and destorys by taking

Air- Passive, music, transfers energy
Creates and destorys by moving

Water- Aggressive, purification, clarity
Creates and destroys by giving

Earth- Passive, protection, parental
Creates and destorys by containing

That’s all that this really boils down to, I might expand a bit more on this, and if anyone has anything to add I would love to hear it!
