the light inside

summary: after Felicity, Dinah, and Thea take out the trash… Oliver gets wind of it and has a few words for his ex-fiance
a/n: because i got asked a few times for a follow up… but uh i’m not sure what happened near the end

Part One

Oliver couldn’t believe what was happening. First, his girlfriend had started to threaten and then blackmail him. He was hurt, betrayed, and most of all angry. She had been someone he thought he could trust. Someone that he could have really cared for. He gave her a chance even after what happened with his sister. Maybe he had been clinging to the idea that there’s good in everyone a little too tightly. He wanted to believe that everyone had a light somewhere inside of him, but as he tried to pick up the pieces he realized that not everyone is worth his trust.

As if that weren’t enough, he caught Susan, trying to leave something for him at the office. She tried to get away from him quickly, but he wouldn’t let her leave without at least a few words. When he saw what was inside the envelop she tried to leave at the front desk and the bruises on her face, he started to feel a little nauseous.

“Who did this to you?” he asked, setting the envelope filled with the money she had taken from him on his desk.

“It’s not important. You weren’t supposed to see me,” she backed up towards the door, “I’m leaving… that’s it. I won’t bother you again.”

It was then that Thea walked in and Susan practically yelped. He looked at his sister, who simply shrugged, and then back to Susan.

“You can leave,” he watched her scurry out of the office. Letting out a sigh, he turned to Thea again, “What was that about?”

She shrugged again.

“Speedy,” he warned.

Curtain of Twilight

A spell that can act as a ward or a curse.

In Twilight Princess, most of Hyrule is covered in a shroud of twilight, and whenever Link needs to go into these areas, he needs Midna’s help to get through the curtain.

“Last time, a shadow beast pulled you through the curtain of twilight… But if you want to go that way this time, you’ll need the cooperation of someone FROM the twilight…like me!” — Midna 

The Curtain of Twilight is a barrier impenetrable by anyone who is not of the Twili, and the twilight beyond is a danger to light dwellers. Inside, most light dwellers become spirits, shades of their selves, while the Twili find their strength and true forms in it.

In this, a twilight witch may use the curtain to protect themselves, allowing only that which they permit within, and strengthening themselves. On the other hand, casting the curtain over another can reduce the target to a shade, weakening them and their magic until either the caster or the target remove it.

To use as a ward:
- Black fabric to make four small satchets
- A gold marker
- basil (protection, warding)
- black salt; sea salt works as a substitute (protection, banishing, warding)
- black pepper or peppercorns (protection, banishing, warding)
- sage (cleansing, protection)

Take your gold marker, and draw the Symbol of the Twili on your sachets, one for each direction. It should look something like this:

Next, add your ingredients into the sachet, close it tight and shake to mix them all together. Imagine a curtain of twilight covering your space, peaceful and serene. Put the sachets at the four corners of your space. You can charge these under the full moon if you’d like, but it’s not necessary.

To use as a curse:
- A cheap compact mirror
- black marker
- a taglock
- cayenne pepper
- black pepper
- chili powder
- black salt

Draw the symbol of the Twili on the mirror with your marker. DO NOT let your reflection into the mirror. Lay the taglock over the mirror. If it’s a picture, make sure it is face down so that your target is “facing” the mirror. Next, sprinkle your ingredients over the taglock, imagining them being covered by twilight. Close the compact and store/dispose of it how you like.




I love her

I hope she comes back someday

the beginning of November by Rona Keller
Via Flickr:
I wake to a world covered in fog and spend my days not doing much until it gets dark again. In those hours before the world turns black I have the strong urge to create. I want to capture the last yellow leaves, the first November rain, the cold wind that brushes the outside of our house, how cosy my room feels at this time of the year, but sometimes I just stay in the moment. I try to enjoy it the way it is and wonder why it always feels like something is missing when I don’t take photographs. It’s never just beautiful or just cosy or just warm, it’s always fading and unsettling and cold, too. I curl up in my warm bed and try to let go, but the artist inside me never seems to rest.


I want you to listen to me very carefully, Harry. You are not a bad person. You’re a very good person, who bad things have happened to. Besides, the world isn’t split into good people and Death Eaters. We’ve all got both light and dark inside us. What matters is the part we choose to act on. That’s who we really are.

I’m so close to tears
And so close to
Simply calling you up
I’m simply suggesting

We go to the hidden place

There was an attempt

let me explain the thing that pissed me off the most about bee movie when watching it last night

in bee movie, the plot is set in motion by the fact that bee jerry seinfeld mistakes a tennis ball for a flower. he gets stuck to it and is separated from the other bees, which is how he meets the human girl

bee jerry seinfeld understands the concept of a career. he knows what coffee is. he knows what jazz is. he understands religion, including HUMAN religions like judaism. he understands fashion–he states outright that he wears a ralph lauren sweater. he knows what tv is. he knows what a car is, because the bees have little bee cars. he even knows what sports are

but he doesn’t know what a tennis ball is
