(( OOC: Lily played by: @potterdeer ))

Remus: *rolls eyes* It doesn’t have to be Christmas to have a party. *awkward pause* … But in all seriousness Lily… 

Lily: Well… *turns to James* 

Lily: And… er…I’m glad you’re sitting down. *pauses, fidgeting nervously*  … Mind handing me your wand?

Sirius: … Well that’s… interesting?

Lily: Thank you… *takes a deep breath* … James… 

James: *stutters* Oh… oh my god! 

Lily: Well… Yes… But- Merlin, how do I say this?

Lily: There’s a father… for this baby…

People should definitely know that boycotting this movie won’t solve anything, but it does mean standing up for what you believe in and it absolutely does hold significance for folks like me who are cash-poor and don’t have the luxury of boycotting corporations and folks that are pro-Israel and for the continuing massacre of Palestinians.

Black Out Vision Spell-a simple spell to stop someone from looking for/thinking of you

Originally posted by petricor-inc

Ok, TBH I did this on the fly when I got sudden inspiration. This was aimed at an undesirable suitor.

Items:

  • Black/banishing candle candle (for wax)
  • Black/banishing ribbon/thread
  • Paper
  • Black pen
  • Name of person 
  • Spit
  • Waning moon (optional)**
  • Somewhere dark to place it

Method

  1. Light candle. On a small piece of paper write the person’s name you want to go away.
  2. Underneath draw an eye, to represent their sight, so to speak (doesn’t have to be pretty or detailed)
  3. Using the pen, black out the eye completely, while saying things like, “ I blacken your vision, you cannot and do not see me, you do not think of me at all. I blind you of my presence, etc.” I made it up as I went.
  4. Spit on the black eye ( if you do it before blacking it out, it will be difficult… I made that mistake)
  5. Fold it up as much you can or want, to seal and trap.
  6. Tie the black ribbon over the folded paper and pour the black candle wax onto it to seal.
  7. This step depends on your practice. I put it in a small black box (until I want to dispose of it) but others may want to bury or burn it.

Regulus played by: @siriusly-not-over-remus​ ))

*Sirius and the Potter’s wait for the train on Platform 9 ¾*

Sirius: Sorry… 

Sirius: I’m not-

James: You are.

James: It’s okay to be scared. 

Sirius: *glances around nervously* 

Sirius: *freezes as Walburga appears, Regulus trailing behind her* 

Sirius: *breaks eye contact, trembling* Shit… 

James: Shit…  

Walburga: *Whispers something to Regulus, casting dark looks at Sirius*

Regulus: *face slowly falls* 

Regulus: Of course… 

Regulus: *takes a deep, shuddering breath and begins walking down the platform towards Sirius* 

Sirius: *watches as Regulus gets closer, his younger brother’s eyes focused straight ahead* 

Sirius: *desperate* C’mon Reg… 

Regulus: *ignores Sirius and continues walking, picking up his pace* *disappears into the crowd* 

James: *grips Sirius as he sways, overwhelmed* *Turns as his mother approaches* 

Euphemia: *reaches out to Sirius as well* 

Euphemia: How nice to see you… Mrs. Black. 

Euphemia: Speaking of which, I sent you an owl concerning Sirius’s belongings.

Walburga: And I sent you one back… I believe.

Walburga: *a menacing smile stretches slowly across her face*

Walburga: *leans forward, her voice dangerous* But I do believe-

Euphemia: I’d really appreciate it if you’d deliver… everything… on the list. 

Euphemia: And how you “discipline” your son is also of particular concern to the ministry, Walburga. Your brand of discipline is called unforgivable for a reason. 

Euphemia: When can I expect Sirius’s things?

James: *whistles* 

James: You are bloody brilliant. 

Sirius: Would you take this?

Euphemia: Of course dear. 

Sirius: Thank you, Mrs. Potter. 

Euphemia: *smiles* Have a wonderful year sweetheart. I’ll see you at home. 

Euphemia: *Beams*
