Some of my favorite facts from Castlevania canon

* Dracula and Death himself are BFFs.

* An alternate dimension exists that contains nothing but 24 different kinds of chairs to sit on.

* Dracula rides a unicorn.

* Vengeful spirit monsters can be defeated by throwing pies at their faces.

* Skeletons ride motorcycles. In 1852.

hey parents: there is literally no non-abusive reason a person would want the ability to read someone’s emails, track their location, and go through their calls and text messages without their knowledge or consent.

mama.... pleas.... i am dy in.... i need...... coran

….. i need u to understand that both of these requests came in like…. one right after the other…… and if that anon wasn’t just you again, i’m legit flabbergasted at the timing of that lmfao

look,,, we all know lance is coran’s favorite, buttttttt,,,,

i have a headcanon that coran and keith talk just as much as coran and lance. and that keith/lance both confide in coran about their crushes on each other and he meddles way too much but it’s perfect because he’s an amazing space uncle (and the only reason keith made sure to shower the day lance confessed to him tbh)

okay so there’s a popular post going around that’s having a bit of a laugh at one of the moves steve did in the lemurian star sequence in catws. i’m all for finding the amusement in things but given that steve’s fighting style is an amalgamation of martial arts, one of which i have been doing for 11 going on 12 years, the whole post kinda bugged me.

so here’s an accurate breakdown of this move (under a readmore bc it got long) based on what i know, and what would happen if steve tried it on the winter soldier:

the move:

the techniques:

now it might look like he’s jumping into the guy’s arms, but there’s actually a lot going on here.

Sleepy Morning Witchcraft 🕊✨

What’s more lovely than the sight of a new day? If you ever wake up feeling mentally yucky, try these little things to help ease your mind. The plus? You don’t even have to leave your bed!

☁️ When your eyes have fluttered open, begin your day by just paying extra attention to your breathing. Don’t check your phone first thing - Instead, take as many deep breaths as you like while you lay in your comfy bed. Stretch. Your legs, your arms… Your whole body. You know those extra-big yawns than come with a full-body stretch, the ones that just feel heavenly? Do one of those!

☁️ Take notice of how soft the sheets feel on your toes, how warm and encompassing your comforter is. Try to carry this warm and fuzzy feeling with you throughout the day. Becoming more aware of simple little things will help you take notice of them more often.

☁️ Consider making a small, personal scent-bag to place underneath your pillow. This can be filled with any herb that smells wonderful to you - mine contains lavender and a rose quartz stone to promote sweet dreams. Yours can have anything you like! (Rosemary, Chamomile, Mint - even go as far as to spritz it once or twice with a favorite perfume for extra scented loveliness). When you wake in the morning, gently rub your scent bag between your fingers. Try repeating a positive mantra to yourself in your head(or out loud) during this slow, rhythmic, back-and-forth motion.

☁️ Keep a favorite candle near your bed to light first thing in the morning! It could simply be a favorite scent, or be a color that represents what you would like more of in life - green for financial matters, blue for a more relaxed lifestyle, red for passion and romance. Say a small thanks or silently set your intention for the day while lighting it.

I hope you give these little things a try! Once it’s time to roll out of bed, treat yourself to a morning cup of tea, coffee, or hot chocolate, and drink it near the window. Breathe in the soft, chilled air, and remind yourself that the day is just as fresh as this air is. ♡

one thing i really want to see phil do is go full nerd and i mean like talk about linguistics and language and his masters degree and i just wish he would mention more about it because it’s so interesting to see this different side of him and know more about his past

🔥✨ Fire in Magick ✨🔥

The element of fire is a special one - it is powerful in its way of taking energy from other elements and giving birth to heat, smoke, and light. It is with fire that we receive warmth and prepare our food, and it is with fire that we fuel our rituals. While fire is destructive in nature, this does not have to be a negative thing in terms of magick - this element is representative of transformation, passion, motivation, and sexuality. A masculine element, the usage of fire in candle magick can help break bad habits and bring about healing. There is nothing quite as powerful as the feelings of both fascination and intimidation while watching the rising and falling of fire’s warm flames. 

♡ Fire in Magick  ♡

Here is a mini guide to the use of fire and its correspondences in witchcraft practices!

GODDESSES: Pele, Brigit, Vesta.

GODS: Agni, Horus,Vulcan, Hepaetus,  Promtheus.

♡ The Fire Signs ♡

The fire signs - Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius - live up to their fire-y ruling. These signs have a certain zest for life and an untouchable enthusiasm. When the fire signs are inspired, their creative drive knows no bounds. However, while they are definitely skilled in the area of self-sufficiency and posses naturally lively spirits, it basically goes without saying that the fire signs can find themselves feeling a bit stubborn if they don’t get their way. Their personas may come across as quite forceful in these instances, so it is best not to push them too deep into their assertiveness. That being said, the fire signs are still so good to have around - you won’t meet anyone quite as dedicated to their passion for both romance and living life to its fullest potential.

‎رأيت الدهر مختلفا يدور , فلا حزن يدوم ولا سرور , وقد بنت الملوك به قصورا , فلم تبق الملوك ولا القصور. - علي بن ابي طالب

I observed a difference in how age revolves, for there is no sadness that lasts forever nor happiness, and though kings have built palaces, neither the kings nor palaces have lasted forever.

—  Ali ibn Abi Taleb

anonymous asked:

Let's talk about some of the gangseys fave meme???

HOO BOY

ok so firstable ronan and henry are on the cutting edge of memes at all times and are most adept at using them? like they both always know exactly the right meme for the occasion. henry’s memes are more topical and ronan’s are more absurdist. ronan also overuses memes so much (murdersquash, anyone?) and likes to use some less popular memes that he kind of claims as his own memes. henry carefully uses a meme so that its impact is preserved.

(sometimes ronan will overuse a meme purely so that henry can’t pull it out for maximum impact. this is a major point of contention.)

noah is only really accustomed to the types of memes that were around in the mid-2000s especially old school youtube. his favorite is probably dramatic chipmunk. however, noah will laugh at like. any of ronan’s memes

adam has a very dry humor but he finds himself unconsciously repeating ronan’s most used memes and making himself laugh at weird times.

gansey is TERRIBLE at memes like actually terrible. he doesn’t know what any of them are and he uses them wrong and late. gansey, last week: “ronan, what’s dabbing? please stop laughing at me when you’re sitting on the floor in your boxers trying to feed your bird.” (ronan spends a week dabbing every time he catches gansey’s eye. everyone except gansey is amused by this.) @cabeswaterlovesthem pointed out that gansey probably only recently discovered the doge meme, which he probably likes. oh he’s probably really into socially awkward penguin

blue likes the 1960s spiderman memes and rick rolling

i want to say that henry, blue, and ronan are all really into vines too. adam and gansey not so much (though they both have a few they like)

Witchy Writing Prompts!

keep track of your dreams. studying your dreams is a great way to dig deep into your subconscious. there are several books / online references that have detailed explanations of objects, imagery, or actions that may have appeared in your mind during slumber! 🌙

write about the witch you wish to be. this doesn’t just apply to baby witches. there is room for growth at any stage of your practice! how do you see yourself in a few weeks? months? years? describe what you want to learn the most. are there things you wish to change? specific areas for extra growth? write about how you want your practice to be in the future. 🔮

plan out your dream set-up. dreaming of supplies and gardens and herb collections is really such an exciting thing. don’t focus on the funds you need, or the funds you don’t have - just be honest, and lay out your wish list. this could include tools, plants, herbs, crystals, jars, cabinets, *anything* witchy that you find yourself lusting after. set a goal (but don’t stress yourself out! you don’t need a million supplies to practice witchcraft), and describe the things you would like the most // any altars you’d like to make // what objects you think would be most beneficial to your own unique craft. 🕯

start keeping track of your tarot or oracle spreads. which card did you get during your daily draw? what did you learn from a full-moon spread? having your experiences written out can be very helpful - start noticing patterns in your drawings. did you pull the same card three times in a month? did a past spread prove to be true? think about looking back on these descriptions years from now, and marveling at how accurate (or inaccurate) a reading turned out to be! ⏳💕

I don’t know if I will be a published author someday, let alone a published author of a blockbuster decade-defining cultural pillar but jesus, I hope I have more grace about it than jk rowling
