PROPOSALS

▹ pairing: Jeongguk x reader
▹ words: 18,102 I’m so sorry 
▹ genre: smut, fluff, light angst, friends to lovers

You and Jeongguk propose at restaurants to get free food, but somewhere along the way you start to fall for him.


You never thought Jeongguk would actually take you up on the whole fake proposals thing. When you had suggested the idea to him, he’d just laughed and said “yeah”, then continued playing Fallout 4. You hadn’t actually meant it; the idea was one of those you vaguely imagine it happening, but not really, which is why when he brought it up weeks later suggesting you try it out, you thought he was kidding. 

He wasn’t, and this is how you end up in one of the city’s nicer restaurants on a fake date with your best friend.

Major Key Alert: The Perfect Shave

Summer is just under one month away and many of us who have been hibernating in all regards are elated to start the Summer ‘16 festivities. We’re taking the word of many fine people all over and saying if your hibernation includes a complete obliteration of the word “shaving” from your vocabulary, we have you covered. We’ve compiled our best kept secrets for the finest shave that you’ll ever know but we’d also like to give you a fair warning… you will not be able to stop feeling your legs, these tips leave your skin so soft, it’s almost unapproachable. 

Myths Debunked!

1) It’s a common myth that not shaving for a period of time until just prior to needing to shave, will result in maximum smoothness, this is entirely incorrect. The faster you get into the habit of shaving, the smoother your legs, arms, etc. will be. So if you have a date, party, seance, make sure you start several days before to ensure the smoothest shave when it is really necessary. 

2) Shaving with Oil - yes, we fulllllllllyyy recommend shaving with oil but this needs to be expanded on just a tad. Per our experience and we’ve tried every oil under the sun (coconut, argan, rosehip, olive, castor, you name it!) Extra Virgin Olive Oil is the absolute crème de la crème of oils to shave with. Not only is EVOO the most hydrating for us but it also for some reason leaves us completely smooth longer. Our great Aunts to our best friends have aggrandized coconut oil for every use under the sun but we’re telling you; EVOO leaves us smooth for 3-4 days while coconut oil is a mere 1-2 days, tops! 

ALSO, on the topic of oil, it’s extremely tricky to shave with but here’s a no frills account of how we do:

-Pour about 1/4c of EVOO in a container and place in shower with you. 

-Allow the steam of the shower to soften your hair follicles for at least 5 minutes. 

-Once your skin is feeling supple, take a quarter size amount of oil into your hands and massage it onto your leg for around 2 minutes (or whichever body part you’re shaving, just make sure to massage each body part in between shaves i.e. massage oil into left leg, shave left leg, then repeat steps for each body part of your choosing.)

- When the leg is coated, rinse your razor and begin shaving against hair growth, making sure to rinse the razor head completely every 2-3 swipes to prevent clogging. 

MAKE SURE TO KEEP THE SKIN COMPLETELY MOISTURIZED WHILE SHAVING! IF YOU’RE NOT THE QUICKEST SHAVER, NO WORRIES. JUST MAKE SURE TO RINSE THE SKIN EVERY FEW SWIPES! 

Skin that is not adequately dampened is the #1 cause for nicks while shaving. 

Once done go ahead and massage the remaining oil into the skin, you’ll be a walking heart-eye emoji for the next couple of days. After leaving the shower, we like to moisturize again with our Leighis Butter for an absolute goddess radiance.

3) Ingrown Hairs and Itchiness after Shaving. To prevent ingrown hairs and itchiness after shaving, we recommend two things. One- Use a toner over shaved areas after shaving. We recommend Witch Hazel or your own DIY Sea Salt Toner or ACV toner, just send us an ask if you need the recipe. Two- Exfoliate! We dry brush 3 times a week at least to keep the dead skin at a minimum. We also whip up a quick Pineapple Mask that we use over our entire body as a chemical exfoliant which we prefer over scrubs. Shaving also helps to remove dead skin, so the more you do it (as long as it’s in a hygienic, safe fashion) the less issues you’ll have with ingrown hairs and itchiness. 

4) Men razors give a closer shave than women razors. I believed this for so long! My absolute favorite razor was the Gilette Fusion, my step-dad had purchased a bulk of them from Sam’s Club and I was completely hooked for years until trying my favorite now, the Schick Hydro Silk which has the smoothest glide ever! We’ve done our research, Gilette uses the same razor blades for their men and women lines and we’ve read that it mostly comes down to the angle of blade, the curvature of the razor head, and the handle as a whole. Overall, we like that women’s razors are designed for the hair on our most commonly shaved areas (i.e. legs, bikini, and underarms) so we’re voting Women’s over men’s any day but we implore you to experiment for yourself. We just recommend a razor of quality with at least 4 blades, the Schick Hydro Silk and the Gilette Fusion both have 5 and that you change the razor head as soon as it dulls.

Here’s just a few more pointers:

- There’s no need to push down hard when shaving! Simply glide the razor over the skin in straight, controlled strokes. 

- Shaving with oil is going to extend the life of your razor, which is great for your bank account and no more poisonous shaving creams but you’ll have to spend a few more minutes cleaning the razor. After each use, we rinse our razor head, soak it in an alcohol solution for a few minutes, then take a cotton swab with alcohol, and dab it clean. This is necessary and will prevent infection just in case of a nick.  

- If you do happen to cut yourself while shaving, just rinse with cold water, cleanse with hydrogen peroxide, treat with Neosporin, and cover with a cool bandaid (recommend: Spongebob or the Simpsons [our aura is Yellow])

Lastly, if you’re feeling fancy, soak in a warm bath tub enchanted with a natural bath bomb, we use the Leighis Goddess Bath Velvets  to start a really penetrative moisture. These bath velvets are no joke when comes to moisturizing so much so that the oil isn’t even necessary but we use it anyway. After daydreaming in the tub for around 20 minutes, we feel our legs, ascend to heaven, come back, shave, ascend again then moisturize once more. But this is almost lethal luxury! We reserve it for birthdays, Christmas, and every Thursday because Treat. Yo. Self. 

We hope this helps! Thanks for reading, our ask is open for advice! 

With so much love and so much light,

Curly Leighis

Running Wild

Prompt: Something on how everyone loves Batmom’s hair. And the boys know that when going out they have to look perfect with her around. Honestly just work your magic, I’d be fine if you just put her having a hard time getting the boys ready for a gala

Words: 683


“They are your children, Bruce Wayne.” Bruce does his best to bite back a grin, as he finishes tying his tie. You pull your dress on and turn your back to your husband, “Can you help me zip this, please?”

He smiles at you in the mirror, before giving up on his tie. He guides the zipper up, his fingers leading it up with a warm trail against your skin. You do your best to fight down the shiver that wants to consume you.

Turning around you narrow your eyes at him, “Don’t think I don’t know what you’re up to Mister Wayne.”

Bruce smirks at you before giving you his best innocent eyes. “I have no idea what you mean, Mrs. Wayne,” he practically purrs the words.

You roll your eyes before tying his tie for him, “I organized this fundraiser Bruce. I’ve spent months on it, making sure it’s perfect, and it’s for a good cause.”

Bruce sighs, “I know. This function is raising money for Gotham’s orphanage. It’s going to supply a lot of the refurbishing and improvements needed. I just don’t get why we couldn’t do something more than just another ball.”

You shake your head as you sit down on the bed and pull on your shoes, “For Gotham’s fiercest crime fighter you’re very naive Bruce Wayne.”

He raises an eyebrow in question and says, “Oh really?”

“Yes, really. Most of these people want to give the money and been seen doing so. They want to dress up in their pearls, and finest, and socialize with others of their class. They don’t care about what actually has to be done. Hell, most of them are in so deep with the crime families it’s amazing that they give at all. But, this is one sure fine way to get them to open their pocketbooks.”

Bruce sighs, “Sometimes I forget that you navigate this world more than I do. You’re always the one left behind to make excuses when the boys and I run out. You’re the one that plans most of these functions.”

You smile, “It’s for a good cause.”

Bruce bends over and whispers, “A very good cause,” before kissing you. Then his hand is tangled in your hair, and you’re reaching for his bowtie to untie, when shouts sound out in the hallway.

Bruce lets out a small growl before pulling back. You grin at him before standing off the bed, and walking towards the door. You open it to find the boys wrestling down the hallway. You let out one sharp whistle and they break apart. Your hands go to your hips and you say, “Seriously? You boys aren’t even dressed yet! And we have to leave in twenty minutes!” They just keep staring at you before you ask, “What in the world are you staring at?”

Jason just says, “Is your hair supposed to look like that?”

Your brows knit together in confusion before you reach up to feel your hair, all out of place. The memory of Bruce’s fingers tangling in your hair makes you groan. You take a deep breath and say, “I know this event won’t be fun for you guys, but it is very important to me. Can you please go get ready; brush your teeth, put on deodorant, comb your hair, and put your tuxes and shoes on.”

They stare at you for a moment before they agree to go. They trudge down the hallway, and you turn to Bruce, “Can you please make sure they’re actually getting ready, and not having some giant pillow fight?”

He just smirks and asks, “Are you sure you don’t need my help fixing your hair?”

You smile and begin pushing him out the door, “You’ve done enough thank you very much. I can manage these curls on my own thank you very much.”

He just smiles, before reaching forward and gently pulling on a loose curl. It straightens for just a minute before bouncing back up. He just winks at you and says, “Personally, I like it when you let them run wild.”

alright you guys have posted some pretty bad jokes on here but not one comes close to this doozy

brace yourselves

so there’s a far-off place that consists of a perfectly triangular lake surrounded by land, with three kingdoms on the three sides of the lake. the first kingdom is rich and powerful, filled with wealthy, prosperous people. the second kingdom is more humble, but has its fair share of wealth and power, too. the third kingdom is struggling and poor, and barely has an army.

the kingdoms eventually go to war over control of the lake, as it’s a valuable resource to have. the first kingdom sends 100 of their finest knights, clad in the best armor and each with their own personal squire. the second kingdom sends 50 of their knights, with fine leather armor and a few dozen squires of their own. the third kingdom sends their one and only knight, an elderly warrior who has long since passed his prime, with his own personal squire.

the night before the big battle, the knights in the first kingdom drink and make merry, partying into the late hours of the night. the knights in the second kingdom aren’t as well off, but have their own supply of grog and also drink late into the night.

in the third camp, the faithful squire gets a rope and slings it over the branch of a tall tree, making a noose, and hangs a pot from it. he fills the pot with stew and has a humble dinner with the old knight.

the next morning, the knights in the first two kingdoms are hung over and unable to fight, while the knight in the third kingdom is old and weary, unable to get up. in place of the knights, the squires from all three kingdoms go and fight. the battle lasts long into the night, but by the time the dust settled, only one squire was left standing - the squire from the third kingdom.

and it just goes to show you that the squire of the high pot and noose is equal to the sum of the squires of the other two sides

No Man’s Toy

Author’s Note: I’m so sorry that I haven’t posted anything in a while but ive kinda been busy. I do hope to get all the requests done by this weekend but that may not happen.

Khal Drogo x reader

requested by anonymous

25. “I’d kill a thousand men before I let one make me his slave.”

words:991

warning: Cussing, mention of rape, mention of sex


It was a calm, cool day. Not a cloud in the sky, all was peaceful. Well, it should have been. Being the time that it was, families always married their children off to ensure security and freedom. As was the case with Y/n’s family. Her family left Westeros when she was just a little girl at the mere age of four, she could hardly remember what it was like. Now she was 18 and could only remember the place she now called home. She was a fully developed woman and in her mother’s eyes, fit to be married. Her mother always said, “ You know when a woman needs a man when her breasts need a hand to hold them up and fingers to keep her core calm.”

Due to her stubbornness and quiet voice, very few were willing to marry and if so, didn’t afford what the family was looking for. It made things rather tough for Y/n. She wouldn’t get to marry for love but rather wealth in anyway her family saw it. They had just ran out of luck, much to the girl’s delight, when news came the the Dothraki warlord, Khal Drogo, was looking for a wife. This brought much excitement to the family, but very little to the soon to be wife.

Notes: I was going to practice my French and have them communicate a little in French- this takes place in America, so the difference in speech would make sense- but I thought it would be easier to read if I just italicize anything meant to be spoken in French. So basically “if the dialogue reads like this” it’s in French. Also, the reader is the daughter of a Virginian Plantation owner, so there will be mentions of slaves in this.


Mademoiselle,” Captain Desrochers greeted, bowing low and accepting the hand you offered, gently kissing your knuckles.

Capitaine,” you responded unenthusiastically. Your father was a general in the American army, a few ranks above Gaston, so obviously you were used to men trying to earn your affections through flattery. This handsome foreigner wasn’t worth your time.

“Now, Captain Desrochers,” your father began in English, placing a gentle hand on your shoulder. “This girl is my pride and joy, so I’m trusting you to look after her in my absence.”

Jyn Erso Appreciation Week - Wants & Needs

For the prompt: Luxury

@thereb Read it AO3

At age 4, Jyn Erso is too young to recognise the luxury in which she lives for what it is: a gilded cage. She has the best tutors, beautiful dresses, and the easy life of a dutiful daughter of the Empire ahead of her. Even though she wants for nothing material, her favourite thing is the rare occasions when her father is home and not working at his desk and they can curl up by the window with her mother, under the glittering lights of the skyline outside, and tell stories until she falls asleep with them.

It ends when her mother bundles her up in the middle of the night and shushes her as they run down halls as if chased by a monster.

I'm so glad I found you, I cry tears of joy every time I see stuff about lovely vanderwood they make my life. So if it's not too much trouble could I get some of your headxanons for the RRA and our lovely minor trio having a makeup artist/stylist MC who's constantly fussing over their S/O looks as well as their own war paint and armour when they're feeling down

Yoosung

  • ok babe
  • *cracks knuckles*
  • you are getting out of that hoodie and into something nice. (◕‿◕✿)
  • The first day Yoosung goes to school after letting you work your magic on him, he turns heads. like. literal transformation. everyone is stunned. people at school think a model has come onto the campus. Yoosung sends a selfie to the chatroom and they’re like
  • what
  • what happened.
  • did the glow of love bestow upon you a heavenly complexion and cheek-bone structure or what
  • Yoosung doesn’t know what to do about the attention, because he can’t even think of looking away from you.
  • Sometimes you do Yoosung’s makeup even when all he intends to do is stay inside and play games. He notices that the number of guild-members who want to video-chat with him skyrockets.

Zen

  • like, zen already had a makeup artist but you are dedicated, and you go beyond just the normal stuff too
  • One day, you give Zen a deer nose and fawny speckles on his face. Another, you transform him into a fairy. On a third day, you paint scales on him, and oh god jaehee is dying
  • this woman is ur new best friend ok
  • You take photos of your work and your make up + Zen’s face takes off in popularity
  • LIKE DAYUM
  • Seven probably helped admittedly, but the two of you become basically an overnight sensation, and you start dressing Zen up in fun outfits, too.
  • He ends up landing a part as a satyr in a musical, with you doing the costuming. Your creative spirits feed into each other… and it’s both inspiring and terrifying for everyone around you.

Jaehee

  • you’re going to make Jaehee look fierce all day, every day.
  • Whenever you’re in public, the two of you just have a… a look that you share that means, ‘we’re going to the bathroom to freshen up’. 
  • freshening up both means ‘make out a little’ and ‘touch up your makeup’ because it always makes you feel happier and more in control when the both of you are on point.
  • they should put the two of you on magazine covers because d a m n are you the finest ladies in the room.

Jumin

  • His… appearence? But he pays people for that. He’s fine, isn’t he?
  • jumin. sweetie. no. you look great but ur gonna make him look even better, ok?
  • ok.
  • TBH he, like Jaehee, also gets away from everyone else to redo his makeup and make out with you, but he is far less subtle about it.
  • Sometimes he’ll even purposefully smudge something or spill a drop of something on himself to get you to take care of it in private.
  • Once, when it’s just you and Jumin at home alone, you give him perfect winged eyeliner, and Jumin sends a blurry selfie of himself to the chat with the captain of, ‘Meow’.

707

  • do you understand what sort of monster you have released.
  • you definitely help Seven with his crossdressing hobby. tbh, you probably crossdress yourself, and the both of you are just the most fabulous pair on the block.
  • Seven loves having you do his make-up because it’s so… intimate and nice. You’re close and touching his face, and he just idly rests his hands on your waist while you do your magic.
  • You go shopping together, try on clothes… Basically just have a total blast.
  • Seven gets really into glittery and shiny eyeshadow. He says it matches his eyes~
  • (you’re smoothing out his lipstick with your finger one day and he just kinda… bites your finger like woah dude omg//////)

V

  • He doesn’t really……. get it, but he indulges you because you know doing it curbs your anxiety.
  • It feels weird feeling you apply it at first, but it starts becoming a comforting routine. Every morning you style his hair and do his makeup, and you’ll ask him what sort of look you should go for yourself that day.
  • Sometimes he just gives you plain, reasonable answers, but occasionally he’ll spice it up by saying things like, well - why not try electric blue lipstick? Or, something that reminds me of a tiger.
  • It makes you happy to know that V had a hand in influencing your appearance. Whenever you look in the mirror, you think of him and smile.

Saeran

  • wtf no get those brushes away from his face
  • back off u - …oh you’re just… fixing that stuff he puts under his eye to make him look edgy?
  • well. okay.
  • look, this boy has trash fashion sense, okay? you teach him how to wear leather properly and do the collar thing right. Also, if he wants lashes, he’s going to do it properly.
  • Saeran kind of sulks and grumbles about it - always telling you to make him look cool and tough, not like his dumb brother… but he lets you have your fun.
  • Eventually, though… he starts to kind of melt under your touch, becoming way more calm, complacent, and just… gentle.

Vanderwood

  • they are actually hella down for being your canvas.
  • They compliment you on your own appearance one day, and you take them by surprise when you ask if you can make them look nice.
  • they’re not used to… like……….. they’re just….. they’ve never had someone who cared, aside from Seven, but they don’t really trust Seven to not fuck with them.
  • You hum as you apply foundation and put a gloss on their lips, and it’s actually pretty hypnotizing. 
  • When you’re finished, you show them their face in the mirror and they’re like -
  • woah. damn. that’s - that’s me? that’s.
  • holy shit.
  • i look hot.
  • you’re just beaming and bubbling and tell them you’re~ going to do their hair next~ and they’re just like
  • hell yeah whatever you want darling.
  • Seriously, they’ve never been one to state at themselves in a mirror but they can’t help it now. Every store window they pass? Definitely admiring your work (and you beside them lmao)

Dream On, Senator

Summary: Ben Amidala is the up and coming senator in the New Republic; women and men alike love him. He has created the perfect life for himself, however this becomes disrupted by you, his assigned bodyguard to protect him from the First Order. 


The story was everywhere; First Order attacks Senator Amidala on route to Hosnian Prime, some casualties. This was worrisome news, many loved Senator Amidala, coming out of nowhere and reclaiming the last name of his grandmother. He had been outspoken, his quick wit and cold words working to pass many laws. His face was plastered all over the news, along with people’s reactions and despair, groups of women crying together.

Even though the young Senator was perfectly fine, people were shocked by the possibility that any harm could come to him, and in fact many people didn’t think that something like that was possible. The public didn’t know who orchestrated the attack, as behind the scenes many were in disagreement over the cause, and many didn’t take it very seriously, no one died being their justification.

However, this gave Leia had a very bad feeling in her stomach. She knew that whatever it was, it was connected to the empire in some capacity, the evil that never seemed to die. She was concerned for Ben so she decided to contact her brother, contact was a loose term and generally Luke stayed of the public eye, fading into obscurity. She hoped that he would respond. She knew that he was straining a new generation of Jedi who may be able to shed some light on these suspicious activities.

Twenty dings. His phone had gone off twenty times, and that was twenty times too many. Enjolras grumbled, trying to ignore the incessant noise as he turned over in bed, attempting to put the ceaseless ringing from his head. He could turn the sound off, but that ran the risk of his alarm not going off. That couldn’t happen- it’d cause nothing but trouble; he’d be late to his internship, and then late for lunch with Feuilly, et cetera. Nothing but trouble. One the twentieth text, Enjolras sat up in bed with a heavy sigh. Honestly.

His eyes squinted at the bright light of his phone, the time blinking up at him. He had to be up in four hours. Enjolras unlocked it with a vigorous frown, pulling up his messages.

If You’ve Never Heard of Sabrina Collins, I’m Gonna Change That

     There was a time when sitcoms were freaking awesome and didn’t have stupid titles.  That time was 2010 - 2014 when FOX had Raising Hope, a show that was super freaking smart and loving and wonderful, and I’ll never be over its cancellation last year.  I dare say it was the best show to premiere in the decade.  Because it was such a loving and positive show, it gave us three epic female characters.  One of those was Sabrina Collins, the character a cynic would write off as a “love interest.”  But the more astute viewer knows that from the beginning, Sabrina was more than that.  Sabrina is smart, tough, creative, genuine, and terribly insecure – sounds like all the legendary women out there, doesn’t it?

      One of the things that’s so great about Sabrina is that she’s gleefully weird.  She’s a real weirdo, and she’s OK with that.  She comes from a multi-million dollar family, but all that high society stuff doesn’t appeal to her.  A picture where everyone’s matching and smiling?  That’s not what Sabrina wants.  She prefers it when things are out of the ordinary.  She likes when people are considered “crazy.”  That’s not because she likes to make fun of them.  Oh, no.  Sabrina likes weird because she would be bored with anything else.  She’s the kind of character who reminds us that “weird” isn’t an insult.  It’s a compliment because it implies that the weird is one with the joy.  Only a gleefully weird person would pretend to be a Russian lady on a trip to Vegas just ‘cause.  She’s always willing to put on a show or take part in a crazy scheme because it brings her joy.  And why shouldn’t it?  It just showcases her creativity more.  Oh, let’s talk about Sabrina’s creativity for a spell.  She’s a natural-born writer, which I’m inclined to mention.  It always makes me so mad that this wasn’t explored more, but it’s clear from the beginning that Sabrina loves words and wants to use them a lot.  It’s like Jimmy said.  She could win an Oscar.  I’d like to think that she and Jimmy are writing and illustrating children’s books together now.  That’s what Sabrina is meant to do.  She’s meant to have ideas and write about them.  I mean, the Hillary Clinton play was freaking awesome.  Imagine how much else she could do.  Couple that with her eccentric personality, and you’ve got the next Newbery medal winner.

     Sabrina could be a Vampire Slayer if there were vampires in Natesville.  She is so strong and determined, and I am thankful that even for four, short years, she was a character on television.  We need more tiny, physically strong characters like her, and I’m not just saying this because (as we all know) I’m a Buffy person.  There are so many girls out there who look like Sabrina who think they could never defend themselves.  But Sabrina reminds you that you can and you should.  In season four, she tries to play the damsel in distress to make Jimmy feel better about himself, but she just can’t.  She’s the hero of this story, and she’ll do the saving if she wants.  And she does want.  That’s just who Sabrina is, and I am glad she is that way.  She has this pluck that doesn’t come out all the time, but when it does, I’m always like, “Did she really just do that?”  And ask around – I have seen this show about twenty times.  She is a maternal warrior, even if she doesn’t like to admit it.  When the four, core adults in the show are trapped in the attic because of an incident with, um, mongooses, Sabrina is the one to burst through the ceiling because they couldn’t just die up there and leave Hope an orphan.  And in the final season, Sabrina becomes fixated on taking Hope on a proper vacation… so fixated that she chases a big man on a motorcycle.  That’s tough.  Also, it reminds me a lot of the show’s matriarch, Virginia, who is fan-freaking-tastic.  Sabrina is just as tough and epic and awesome.  She deserves a legacy.

     But Sabrina is so beautifully flawed.  Not many sitcoms show a deeper side to the characters, but Raising Hope did, namely with Sabrina.  The second season essentially opens with discovering Sabrina’s affluent origins and how she renounced them because she’s not about that life.  But as the episode goes on, we notice that Sabrina feels insecure for giving up the money because she’s not as pretty, privileged, or educated as the people she went to high school with.  As a result of her insecurity, she bullies her old friends ruthlessly.  That’s not right.  Even still, she discloses to Jimmy that she thinks she’s better than everyone at Howdy’s – even him.  She doesn’t understand how to love herself, and when she breaks down yelling, “Fine, Jimmy, everyone’s just better than me!” it’s heartbreaking.  You’re mad at her, but you understand.  It’s hard to accept that you’re not perfect, which Sabrina can never do despite this moment.  However, it is the finest moment on the show, and the subsequent montage to “Losers” by The Belle Brigade is genius.  Sabrina doesn’t understand that perfection isn’t real.  She strives for it, and it might kill her.  It’s admirable to be that determined, but she’s a little self-destructive.  Perhaps we should let her borrow a little Gilbert and Gubar?

     Raising Hope was just a fantastic show – in part, thanks to Sabrina.  I can’t recommend this show any more (seriously, it’s 88 episodes on Netflix, and my fantasy is to get it popular post-mortem so they renew it for a Netflix season).  Sabrina is such an admirable character for girls and women everywhere.  She tries so hard to be the best person she can be, but she reminds us that the Angel in the House is a real thing.  I love Sabrina, and I will stand behind her even when her straight-man comedy irks the crap out of me.  She’s too strong, independent, and clever for me to dislike her.  Four seasons was definitely not enough for this gem, but one episode was enough to make Sabrina Collins a legendary character.

Silence of the Lambs: Hannibal Lecter [INTJ]

OFFICIAL TYPING by Charity / The Mod.

Introverted Intuition (Ni): Dr. Lecter has such a powerful ability to make unseen connections that he can solve crimes from behind prison bars, with scant details and no crime scene photos. Not only that, he immediately knows how he figures into subsequent events and how he can manipulate, withhold information, and shift the circumstances to suit his longer-term agenda, which ultimately accumulates in a flawless escape plan completely planned out in advance. He visualizes what he wants and pursues it. He turns people into symbolic objects that to him represent elements of humanity, rather than humanity on an individual basis.

Extroverted Thinking (Te): He does everything for a reason, to create some cause and effect in the external world that in some way helps him to accomplish his goals—including his escape. From there, he systematically rids himself of his enemies and anyone who was ever rude to him. He plans, he executes, and he is motivated through tactical advantages. His particular brand of cruelty is merely to state the facts and twist them to his advantage, but harming others emotionally is not his primary goal; merely a byproduct of his mental superiority. He doesn’t care how people work, merely what he can do with them.

Introverted Feeling (Fi): His motives are centered around his personal beliefs and values, which include cannibalism but not rudeness. Dr. Lecter is unsympathetic to anyone outside himself, but also forms a strong silent bond with Clarice, in whom he senses a “kindred spirit.” He never addresses this affection for her, but instead pursues her with single-minded determination.

Extroverted Sensing (Se): Whenever out of prison, Dr. Lecter pursues and indulges in only the finest things … from his choice of automobile to his love for good food, a fine table, and expensive clothing. He can be opportunistic and impulsive, but more often represses those instincts for a calm, deliberate, long-term plan.

“You know what fellas?” he breathed out “I don’t think it’s a ghost or demon we’re after here.”

“Then what?” you whispered “What could be making people’s hunger go so big?”

Dean looked down at you, meeting your eyes “There is only one explanation…” he whispered.

And then realization downed on you as you breathed out “Famine”

“Wh-what?” Sam stuttered, his eyes going wide.

“Think about it-” Dean licked his lips “That kid not being able to stop eating until he had a stroke because of the food. That woman taking her husband’s eyes out because her jealousy got over her. That husband loving his wife so much that he practically devoured her. And Jill-” he stopped himself, a small sigh leaving his lips.

“It’s the only explanation.” you whispered, eyes casting down “People’s hungers are taking the best of them. They’re all… starving. For what they deeply desire.”

“But- but it makes no sense!” Sam exclaimed and you could partially understand him. His hunger for demon blood would sooner or later cause a big problem and if not for the case then for the brothers’ relationship for sure.

“We killed famine! He’s gone for good! And last time we checked- there is no Apocalypse number 2 going on!”

“Yes but you said it yourself yesterday. It might be.” Dean shrugged softly but let a small sigh “Maybe that makes no sense because we killed him yes but- either way we know for a fact that people are giving into their hungers.”

“Great then.” you sighed, already beginning to understand what that weird feeling at the pit of your stomach was “So what do we do now?” you breathed out, giving Sam a worried look which he actually returned.

Taurus

The second sign of the Zodiac, Taurus, represents Loyalty. They are;

  • Paitent
  • Generous
  • Loyal
  • Dependable
  • Persistant

The name “Taurus” is Latin for Bull, where Taurus gets their symbol. Taurus people are controlled by their senses, many love to smell some sweet flowers, eat some fine food, see some beautiful scenery or to feel the tender touch of a loved one.

Taurus is ruled by the planet Venus, in Roman mythology, Venus is the goddess of love, beauty and pleasure, and Taurus definitely owns that trait. Taurus lives in world of beauty, filled with the finest things. But this is not to be misunderstood as materialism or over self indulgence. A simple home, with a loving partner and a stable family is enough to calm down a bull.

Taurus people are sensual creatures, and love to know their partner is happy. However, it can get to the point of suffercation, Taurus’ need for stability can counteract themselves in relationships. But in the end, they are loving people who want to see you smile, so appreciate their efforts.

Taurus is not one for change, so canceling on them at the last minute without a proper reason will bring the wild bull out of them.

Taurus does have some pretty bad traits too, just like all the other zodiac signs, some Taurus people can be very;

  • Possessive
  • Lazy
  • Stubbon
  • Self indulging
  • Materialistic

There traits can be very damaging if not controlled, just like any other sign.

They are very much caring people, who can sometimes, be a little too loyal. Latching onto others, even if it were to be healthier for them to let go. 

Taurus rules the throat and neck. Many Taurus people have lovely voices and are great at singing! But are more likely to get sore throats, colds and other things such as problems in the thyroid.

Taureans have a tendency to get into violent situations if it is caused by means of money and/or love. Thier passionate nature can become one of possession and obsession.

Taurus is a fixed sign, meaning they have a very passive approach to things and would rather learn about the situation before they decide on how to act acordingly. Most times they will follow things through to completion and are very consistent in their work.

The sterotype for Taurus is this lazy, food obsessed slob who is stubbon to the core. When in reality, their lazyness is their need for comfort and a lack of sudden change (i.e A bedroom or a couch) and with the food obsession, it’s because many are controlled by the five senses, and their senses are hightened in comparison to others.

Taurus love sensuality, and someone they can be intimate with, someone who can show deep running emotions. In bed with a Taurus is a magical experience, they are slow yet strong and wont stop until you reach your peak. Seducing you with kisses and gently caressing. Taurus people have lots of stamina, and although they may not have much in the way of tricks, they will be sure to wow you with what they’ve already learned.

Happy Taurus season everyone! And a very happy birthday to all my Taurus follwers!

And if you haven’t already, if you want to learn more about the second sign I would suggest you follow imtaurus

He’s a blog the does all Taurus posts, and is a very sweet and caring guy!

Two very rare shots of the actual sculptures of Anton LaVey and Aleister Crowley.

To this day I am very proud of these pieces and consider them some of my finest work. Over the years many people have told me that these statuettes hold a place of high honor in their collections and are often found in their personal ritual chambers.

I display them in my own ritual chamber as well and am always flattered when others gain great meaning and occult potency from them.
