My animals are a very important part of my life, and should anything ever happen to them, I would be distraught. As I was reading my learning material, I came across a spell similar to this one of my own creation, and I thought it would be a good place for me to start.
The Purpose: To Protect a Pet from Harm
Tools: A pet tag with the pet’s name, a small bowl, olive oil, lavender and vervain of any sort (whether it’s the actual herb or essential oil, whichever it readily available), a brown candle, and optional tiger’s eye and amethyst crystals to add a bit more to the spell.
Casting the Spell: Cast the protective circle. Clear your mind and light the brown candle, and place it before you, keeping the pet you wish to protect foremost in your thoughts. Power a bit of olive oil in the small bowl, adding the lavender and vervain, mixing it so that it is evenly distributed within the oil. You may have the tiger’s eye and amethyst there to add their powers as well to the spell. Take the pet tag and dip it in the oil mixture, anointing the tag. Let the tag lay in the oil as you utter the spell, asking your Diety to aid in your magic:
Oh, Dear God, of all that’s light, Protect my friend both day and night. To this creature, let not befall, Any harm, unto their paw. As they rest, as they sleep, By my side do my friend keep. By your Grace, I ask these things, And to Your glory, I do sing.
The spell is complete. You may let it soak longer in the oil if you like, but as long as the tag was fully covered, the spell will be complete.
This spell is mainly aimed toward the Christian Diety, as I am a Christian Witch, but please feel free to use it as you would to whichever Diety you worship. Also, while it does appear that this spell is aimed toward furry friends, as the owner of a bearded dragon, it may also work for the scaly friends as well. Rather than using a pet tag, you may find something else, maybe an item in their tank, to use. I plan on getting a tag with my dragon’s name on it, just so I can hang it on her tank for protections.
ive been watching rwby for a while but im still relatively new to the rwby fandom um im just curious. what exactly has been going on with bumblebee (is that how you spell it dear god help me) lately though? <3
You entering this fandom rn:
Lmao but yeah, welcome!! :3 Bumbleby can honestly be spelled either way, but I think most people (including me) use the -by spelling to distinguish the ship tag from the tag about the insect. Tumblr rlly likes actual bees lol. Also, the BY can stand for Blake & Yang’s names which is kinda cute <3
Since it’s both a high profile same-gender ship and the most popular ship in the RWBY fandom, it’s very often the center of some controversy or another. The latest one is over the BMBLB song on the V4 soundtrack. The song was released about a month ago and is an upbeat and romantic love song between two girls. Since it’s literally the name of the ship without vowels, and due to all the references in it, it’s clearly about Blake and Yang. Anyone who says it isn’t may be experiencing some denial.
Anyway, the issue is that the whole bumbleby fandom latched onto the song and got super excited over it. For me personally, I saw it as the most explicitly romantic B/Y content, and while it obviously never made bees canon, it was really nice to have as acknowledgement that at the very least one has a crush on another (and thus is LGBT). I felt it was a small payoff for the LGBT character/relationship that RT has been promising for years now, as well as confirmation that the bumbleby romance would *eventually* be addressed in the show itself.
So a couple days ago, Arryn (Blake’s VA) tweeted that basically neither she nor the production staff knew about the song and that Jeff Williams created it on his own and included it on the soundtrack. This means the song may or may not be canon and that either B or Y being confirmed LGBT is also canceled (for now). That’s what triggered the giant shitstorm since people saw it as queerbaiting for them to release the song then turn around and claim it means nothing. Especially after promising representation for 4 years and teasing bumbleby quite a lot (in chibi and various panels).
Having time to think though, that’s not really the case. What actually happened is unclear, but I find it hard to believe that Jeff snuck the song on there without ANYBODY realizing. More likely, the showrunners (Miles & Kerry) knew about it but didn’t anticipate it becoming such a big deal. They probably never planned to address it since they’re notoriously big on keeping future plans secret (probably why people are constantly so frustrated about the nebulous upcoming LGBT rep). But Arryn felt bad that people were getting so excited and thinking bumbleby was a sure thing. So she made that twitter chain to finally acknowledge the song and hopefully prevent people from being hurt. [Side note Arryn is a sweet and kind human being & everyone with a twitter should tweet her and tell her she’s great. I really don’t want her getting shit over this.]
Long story short is that bumbleby is at the same point as it was at the end of V4, and all of the development and buildup in the show is still valid. Even the song could become canon in the future if it’s used in the show proper. This whole incident is unfortunate because it’s only making the people who hate bumbleby/bee shippers/shippers in general even more angery since Arryn only spoke up after being pressured by fans over the song (also of note is that Arryn doesn’t actually work for RT beyond this VA work. So she has almost no idea of what is planned for the future/if bumbleby will happen). The bee fandom had a big overreaction brought on by years of frustration and communication issues within RoosterTeeth. And then the ANGERY “shippers are the worst”-type folks came in and got mad at people for being upset, exacerbating the explosion. But no worries, it’ll blow over in a couple days (hopefully the RT panel tomorrow won’t reignite anything) and normalcy will resume! Anyway enjoy the fandom lol when we’re not at each other’s throats it can be kinda nice
Wow I wrote a whole essay ahahah
tldr: Blake’s VA tweeted that the bumbleby song from the V4 soundtrack may not be canon/mean anything for the ship since supposedly the crew was not consulted about it. Massive shitstorm over queerbaiting, LGBT rep & shipping in the RWBY fandom ensued.
Pepper Potts really really hates seeing the people she cares about get hurt, but she knows better, by now, than to try and change their natures. Natasha can’t apologize for who she is and what she does, but she knows better than to think that’s really the issue here.
I keep thinking about Mettaton going to the beach and all the problems that would entail but what haunts me the most is that because he’s a robot and his shoes are pretty much attached he can’t walk well on the sand and has to wear sandals like this
For all his life, Junmyeon has lived in a black and white world.
The idea of colour was almost like a myth. Some people believed in colour like they believed in love. Others scoffed at the idea, rolling their eyes at the lovestruck beings.
They say that the whole purpose of a black and white world was to find your soulmate. When you found your soulmate, your world would completely change, and become much happier, brighter, and colourful.
i’ve been having a problem with all the “basics of jewish culture” and “what you shouldn’t say to jewish people” posts because i personally don’t relate to a lot of it?? i mean, i don’t get offended by a lot, but of course there are some things that bother me so i thought i’d make my own post
keep in mind, this is just in regards to me, my opinions, and what you can and shouldn’t say in front of me. everyone else has their own opinions on what bothers them.
i personally don’t have a problem if you’re not jewish and call me a jew. that’s what i am
HOWEVER, do not use jew as derogatory or as a euphemism for cheap, greedy, etc. those are stereotypes and they’re gross
greedy does not equal jewish
and also if you’re not jewish don’t say stuff like “jew nose” or “jew curls” idk that irks me just compliment me on my hair
mostly jew nose though, that doesn’t slide ever, jew curls is fine if we’re close
speaking of appearances, i happen to have blonde hair and green eyes which is not how “most jews look” so don’t say i don’t “look jewish” because jews don’t look any one way
holocaust jokes are not funny
the hitler walk is not funny
you’d have to greatly cartoon-ize and exaggerate hitler in order for anything to do with that man to be even remotely funny
(the one thing that gets a pass is the auschwitz card in cards against humanity because that game is deliberately designed to be fucked up)
the two most used ways to spell our december holiday is “hanukkah” and “chanukah”
but please dear god if you use chanukah don’t say it with the american “ch” sound like “chair” and “chopped” because it’s not only horribly wrong it is a little insensitive and you just look dumb
it kinda sounds like you’re getting mucus out of the back of your throat
just stick with hanukkah until someone demonstrates it
the jewish calendar is a lunar calendar and all holidays begin at sundown
i.e. christmas eve is the first night of hanukkah this year, and it starts whenever the sun sets, so if it says hanukkah starts on christmas on your calendar, no, wrong, it’s the night before
also there are 8 nights of hanukkah i don’t know why people still don’t know that
and don’t say happy yom kippur it’s not a happy holiday
antisemitism is still VERY REAL, especially with the current political climate, and it might only get worse going forward. please be respectful, don’t make insensitive jokes, validate our customs and traditions and history and what’s considered disrespectful. and please, don’t be afraid to ask questions about anything. i’m more than happy to answer them the best i can
happy hanukkah, and a merry christmas to the goyim!!
it probably says something about me that every time i see that a rare game has spawned my first thought is OH FUCK WHAT DID I DO WRONG.
:“| i didn’t have great experiences with rare game in my last playthrough.
anyway some brief thoughts on the jobs i picked so far… mostly, they seem to be working out quite well. red mage is a really good choice for vaan, because holy crap, you get the dark spell from the start of the game. it doesn’t sound like a big deal but it’s the only area-effect spell you get that early and dear god in heaven AOE spells are so useful in this game. the -aga spells do more damage but in the early game crowd control is way more important and to have that from the very beginning is such a relief.
i’m really liking balthier as a white mage, but to be perfectly honest i think it’s less about balthier and more about how much i missed having a white mage……………… LMAO CRIES YOU GUYS THIS GAME IS SO DIFFERENT WITHOUT A WHITE MAGE, YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND. YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND. having someone who can just sit there and cast cure and blindna and poisona constantly is amazing. it’s so fucking amazing. i will never play without a white mage again. (that’s a lie, i’ll probably do it again at some point when i decide i want to play ff12 on hardmore again. but right now i’m just going to bask in NOT FUCKING DYING.)
don’t have too many thoughts on fran yet; i made her a monk and she’s doing well but i haven’t gotten to anything particularly unique yet. there are differences to the physical jobs, but it takes some time to get there; at the start it’s simply about weapon choice. i’m very much enjoying fran swinging around a giant pole though.
decided to start basch out on bushi, but haven’t used it with him yet; i enjoyed ashe as bushi so much that i’m really looking forward to seeing what he can do as one. i’m particularly curious to find how he does with shades of black, since he’s not exactly a magical powerhouse. (i should make basch a mage in a future run, hm. actually i should just do a run where i swap the roles they’re suited for in general, that’d be delightful.)
Stood Up (Jack G Imagine) PART2 ——————————————————————- I walked up stairs to our bedroom and undressed and changed into my pjs then proceeded to the bathroom. Oh god I look like a mess, I thought to myself as I began my nightly routine. When I finished drying my face I almost had a heart attack because Jack was staying there nonchalantly.
“Hey,” he said. Silence. “I said ‘hey’” he repeated. Still no response, if I was going to win this I needed to stand my ground and not fall for his boyish charms.
“What?” I replied annoyed, applying moisturiser to my face.
“I said ‘hey’ and you didn’t respond, but anyway how are you and why did you come home so late?” he sarcastically said smiling. No be strong don’t fall for it.
“I was at a party Jack” bluntly responding.
“A party? Without me?” He chuckled moving to brush his teeth. Roughly brushing past him I walked back into the bedroom.
“Yes Jack. Without you” I mocked.
“Who did you go with?”
“Johnson” I replied
“So you invited Johnson but not your own boyfriend?” Is this boy serious, is he actually kidding me?
“I did” replying bluntly, but being him he probably didn’t even notice. Typical, sometimes that boy is so clueless.
“Why didn’t you invite me? I was waiting for you for the whole night and you didn’t show up,” he continued.
“I did Jack, I did invite you but you didn’t bother to show up, you never do” I spoke muttering the last part.
“When? And what to?” He said, by now he was leaning at the bathroom frame confused and anxious.
“I invited you last month an-” interrupted by Jack.
“Wait why are you so upset?” Finally noticed.
“Because Jack this was an important event for me, and I thought I was to you too,” fight the tears, I’ve got to fight the tears.
“What are you talking about?” He said finishing up and coming out.
“Dear god Jack! Must I spell everything out for you?” I yelled getting frustrated.
“Spell what out babe?” No not this time, this is the last time I let him get away.
“ THE DINNER PARTY JACK! THE SAME PARTY I INVITED YOU TO ATTEND A MONTH AGO! IT WAS TONIGHT!” I yelled, his eyes widened. Oh my god this boy forgot. He fucking forgot. Oh my fucking god.
“Shit sorry babe I forgot. But damn!” He said getting agitated.
“NO JACK I WILL NOT CALM DOWN! NOT THIS TIME! MY AUNT AND UNCLES 30th WEDDING ANNIVERSARY WAS ON TONIGHT! TONIGHT AS IN 5 HOURS AGO! AND YOU DIDN’T SHOW UP LIKE USUAL!” Fury taking over me.
“I said I’m sorry babe. Why was this event so important to you anyway, it’s not like your graduation or something,”
“NO THAT’S WHEN YOU’RE WRONG JACK! IT’S NOT LIKE ANY OTHER EVENT BECAUSE YOU PROMISED!” I broke out into tears. He tried to comfort bit I moved away.
“YOU FUCKING PROMISED ME THAT YOU’D SHOW UP AND ACCOMPANY ME AS MY DATE! BUT SILLY ME FOR THINKING THAT JACK COULD EVER THINK ABOUT ANYBODY BUT HIMSELF! YOU SAID YOURSELF THAT YOU “WOULDN’T MISS IT BABE, I. FUCKIN. PROMISE.” BUT GUESS WHAT JACK? YOU DID. YOU DID MISS IT. THE WHOLE EVENT. NOT EVEN A TEXT OR CALL OR ANYTHING. I HAD NO IDEA WHERE YOU WERE! I WAS WORRIED THAT YOU WOULDN’T SHOW UP! I KEPT TELLING MYSELF THAT “HE’LL BE THERE” “DONT WORRY HE’LL COME EVENTUALLY” BUT GUESS WHAT JACK?“
He didn’t say anything.
“DING DING DING YOU’RE CORRECT! SILENCE. FUCKING. SILENCE! YOU DIDN’T FUCKING SHOW UP TO AN EVENT THAT WAS IMPORTANT TO ME AND MY FAMILY MEMBERS! BECAUSE THE WHOLE WORLD REVOLVES AROUND JACK FINNEGAN GILINSKY! JOHNSON WAS A BETTER DATE THAN YOU AND I’M NOT EVEN DATING HIM!”
I could tell he was getting hurt by this but I couldn’t stop now.
“YOU LET ME DOWN AGAIN. YOU ALWAYS DO THIS! YOU NEVER BOTHER TO SHOW UP UNLESS IT BENEFITS YOU! GOD JACK! IF A RELATIONSHIP IS BASED ON TRUST HOW CAN I TRUST YOU TO FOLLOW YOUR WORD WHEN YOU DO SHIT LIKE THIS?!” I broke into tears on the last part.
“Babe I…” He was lost for words. He immediately came up to comfort me but once again I moved out of the way.
“I’m so sorry that I broke my promise. Not for this one time but for every single time that I’ve ever let you down. I never knew how you felt or how I made you feel. I was only thinking about myself. Y/N I’m so sorry for making you upset, please know that I didn’t do any of this unintentionally. Like you said I’m a selfish jerk who doesn’t care about anybody but himself.” Realising what I said I tried to apologise.
“No Jack please, I was upset an-”
“And you had every right to be mad/upset. I let you down and that’s NOT what good boyfriends do. They support their girlfriends no matter what, and they show up to events like this. I feel so bad about this and I don’t know how but I am and will make it up to you! Hah who am I kidding me? Johnson WOULD make a better boyfriend than me” muttering the last part.
“No Jack I’m sorry for calling you that and saying that Johnson was a better boyfriend over you. I was just pouring out what came to mind. I let my anger take over me and didn’t process my words” I explained moving closer to Jack. ————————————————- Sup guys, there’s part two up. Hope you guys liked it, I’d really appreciate some feedback or ideas on the next part of this imagine. ILY y'all xx
