Moonlight Grimoire Challenge 

[Venice, Italy]

Striding along the quiet Venetian canal bank, Sherlock heard a sound. Text alert. Not a ringtone he was familiar with, but originating from his trouser pocket where he’d kept his phone.

He reached for his pocket. A phone. Not his. With a new message displayed on the screen.

“Dr Watson was asking where you were. I answered his text for you – Bed. Busy. Text me next week.

His eyes widened in horror, then something else, his breath catching as he recalled bumping into someone earlier that afternoon. An American tourist (judging by the map and the brand of her bag) whose face he didn’t manage to catch a glimpse of before being carried forward by the flow of the crowd.

The ringtone sounded again. Notes from his own violin music, he now realised.

“Joking. Flattered that you’ve kept all my old text messages.”

The next text contained a single line of Latin, “Sicut cervus anhelat ad fontes aquarum".

As the hart panteth after the water brooks. A specific version of a translation of Psalm 42, verse 1. The motto of Hertford College, University of Oxford, as he recognised from his undergraduate days.

The Bridge of Sighs. She wanted his company under that landmark structure, of the same iconic name common to both cities.

Sherlock Holmes never believed in legends. And, as he knew full well, neither did she. But as the gondola slowly glided towards the bridge, cast in a golden orange glow by the setting sun, he turned to the American tourist beside him, tucked a strand of stray blonde hair behind her ear, and pressed his lips to hers.

In the distance, the bells of St Mark’s Campanile tolled.


Future scene in Could’ve, Didn’t, which I really should’ve made into a long one shot instead but.. Takes place many years (and 2-3 more locations) after my previous post featuring them in Karachi and Montenegro.

*The landmark Bridge of Sighs at Oxford, linking together two main quadrangles of Hertford College, is named after its counterpart in Venice, despite having little architectural resemblance.

*There’s a Venetian legend, about lovers kissing on a gondola at sunset under the bridge, as the bells of St Mark’s Campanile toll.

My name is Reigen Arataka. I’ve never believed in ghosts until I came face to face with one. So I set out on a quest to capture what I once saw onto video….With no big camera crews following us around, I am joined only by my fellow investigator Mob and our equipment tech Dimple. The three of us will travel to the some of most highly active paranormal locations, where we will spend an entire night, being locked down from dusk until dawn….Raw…Extreme…These are our Ghost Adventures.

“You guys are so weird with your assumptions…” 

So last night I had my very first experience with homophobic slurs. I was walking home at 4am with my friends (a lesbian couple) they were holding hands and some drunk guys passed by and started screaming very very homophobic and rude slurs. Ranging from “you know they used to stone gays to death” to chanting “Trump”. And the three of us just continued on, called a friend to stay on the phone with us while we walked. And I know that it wasn’t directed at me directly but it still hurt me and scared me. For being publicly affectionate with previous girlfriends I’ve never ever experienced such vile words from anyone.

Stormwater Trump Binding Spell

Step One: Collect storm water - preferably on a moon phase you associate with binding, balance or hexing your oppressors (I personally love last quarter for this) even better do the spell while it’s still stormy outside if possible

Step Two: Draw a sigil of the phrase “Trump Administration” Feel free to use mine as inspiration lol

Step Three: On the back write “I bind you from harming ________ (list which groups you are protecting depending on if you’d rather try to get everyone in one go or do one group at a time to get more bang for your buck as it were)

Step Four: (optional) Incorporation inspirational quotes and songs – for instance I used the song “Stand Up” by Flowbots and the Activist Burnout incantation written by @cobwebsandmagic

Heres a Shou headcannon: Since he’s probably been around the world a few times, I like to imagine he uses alot of slang no one in Salt city understands. He’d probably try to teach it to the other three, only Teru would actually use any though.
