this is intentional right

Mundane can be magic.

So I’ve seen a few posts circulating about magical ways to take care of yourself, and while I’m not knocking those, I’m just here to say that mundane things can be just as magical as magical things.

I was talking to @starborn-witch the other day and she was discussing her shower and how it doubled as a cleanse. And it got me to thinking.

There’s so many things that are completely mundane that could be magical in themselves, plus they help in their own way.

Showers and baths? Totally mundane. They’re good for getting clean. But they can be magical if you add that intent.

Eating? Totally mundane. It fills you up and stops hunger pains. But it also can fill you with goodness and energy if you add that intent.

These things are totally mundane, but with the right mind frame they can become daily rituals for you.

Not only that but it’s also a form of self care. And self care is so important for mental wellness.

Self care isn’t always elaborate and special, just like how all spells aren’t huge and elaborate. Sometimes it’s washing your face, brushing your teeth, and making your bed. And each of those things, with the right intent, can be just as magical as anything else.

also have some variants!

Headcanon that the reason why the information in the three Journals wasn’t separated between them in any sort of chronological order is because Ford kept losing one or the other of them and just scribbling things down in whichever one came to hand first.

Every woman I know is afraid to walk alone at night. Every woman I know does not want to be in a cramped subway car full of just men. Every woman worries that some dude followed her home when she is out in the evening. Every woman I know has been hurt/injured/treated callously whether emotionally, physically or sexually by a man. Don’t tell me I have no right to fear men and their intentions because “NOTALLMEN”. I don’t leave my house unlocked when I go out either, but I don’t hear you screaming about how stupid I am because “NOTALLPEOPLE” are burglars. The point is, some men do it. The point is those men look just like the rest of the male population. And the point is, when it happens, you turn around and blame us for that too “You asked for it“ “You were stupid” “You provoked it” when you completely invalidate our very rational fear of getting raped and murdered. So don’t get annoyed at us for fearing and acting cautious around all male strangers when the system is pointedly set up to fail us.

Simple Sigil Creation: A How-To Guide

One of the most common messages I get on Tumblr goes something like this: “What is your process for creating sigils? It can’t be as simple as scrambling up letters, so what’s the real secret?”

The truth is, there isn’t a secret. Making sigils is actually quite simple. Anyone can do it. Even for a complete newcomer, the process should take less time than a coffee break. While there are many, many ways to create sigils — magic squares, automatic drawing, grid overlays — the methods don’t really matter all that much.

In this post, I’m going to show the step-by-step method I used for creating the most recent sigil I’ve published. It came at the request of a young woman who wanted to catch the romantic attentions of another female. It said simply: “She will see me in a romantic way.”

As you can see, I’ve gone with the most basic sigil-creation method here. I’ve written out the text, and I’ve isolated the consonants from the sentence. While there is an “occult” tradition behind this method, I wouldn’t get hung up on thinking that it’s the “right” way to make a sigil. It’s no better than any other method, it’s just easier to explain.

This first step is meant to abstract the coherent words into a less-coherent jumble of letters. The words stop being as meaningful, but the symbols behind the sigil’s intent remain. To keep things simple — and to speed up my next step — I arrange these letters into a grid.

The next step is to abstract the remaining letters even further. Here, I’ve simply started combining elements of the letters together. I generally start by picking two letters from the grid of consonants, and start combining lines, curves, curls, dots, and other pieces of those letters together.

I try to keep these new symbols as simple as possible — four or five pencil strokes at most — because I’ll be further combining them in the next step.

From here, I generally play around with a few ideas, combining elements of symbols as I go. Sometimes these ideas come easily, as seen in the picture, but sometimes it can take pages and pages of sketches to find one I like. In particularly thorny situations, I’ll even start the entire process over from scratch, just to give myself a clean slate.

Once I’ve found a design I like, it’s time to start on the final design. Much like every other stage in the process, there is no one “right” way to do this. This is also the step where most people could happily stop. When the sigil looks and feels “right” to you, it’s done. The sigil is complete, if you want it to be.

In my case, however, I’m also making art for my website and social media. That means creating a version of the sigil that will (hopefully) catch other people’s eyes. There are countless ways to do this — charcoals, crayons, digital painting, markers — and I’ve experimented quite a bit over the years.

I also like to have an excuse to play with ink and brushes, so that’s how this one came together. I like that it’s a little unpredictable — with streaks and globs and splatter — and I’m always thrilled when a happy accident improves the design.

As you can see, I create tons of variations, tinkering with brush sizes, stroke direction, the amount of ink in the brush, and other stuff. While I liked some of these versions, none of them looked quite right. So, I kept going until I found one that did.

A few ink-soaked pages later, and this version was the clear winner. From here, it was just a matter of scanning the image in and doing a few technical things in Photoshop to make it look better in black and white. I add the text, the watermark, and … that’s it.

Here’s the finished version.

As you can see, there’s no great secret to making a sigil. Nor should there be. Sigils are about focusing intent, and even a few pencil scratches on notebook paper can become a perfectly wonderful sigil with the right intent behind it. Yes, some people (like me) like to do a little showing off with things they picked up from art class, but that should never be a barrier to creating your own personal sigils.

To all the Tony Stark haters on here, you do realize that ALL of the events that happened in Spiderman: Homecoming were NOT Tony’s intentions right? Tony did not in any way force or suggest Peter to go after Vulture and his crew. In fact, that scene between Tony and Peter after Tony found out what he had been doing just proves he wanted to keep Peter safe and keep him away from the bad guys. But either way, THAT WAS ALL PETER’S DOING! BECAUSE HE IS A KID WITH POWERS WHO WANTS TO USE THOSE POWERS TO HELP PEOPLE! Seriously, you all act like you’ve never seen a Spiderman movie. He always started using his powers at a young age, and now just because with this version when Tony brought him in for a MINOR part in the cacw fight, y’all start freaking out and aboard the “I hate Tony Stark” train. Did you guys hate him using his powers beforehand, when Peter was out fighting crime on the streets / saving people, hence how Tony found out about him in the first place? No. It was only when Tony got involved that you thought the idea was “disgusting” and “irresponsible.” Peter has a brain, if he didn’t want to help Tony, he wouldn’t have. He has always looked up to Tony and sees him as a GOOD GUY (which some of you have forgotten cause yes Tony Stark is a GOOD GUY!) so of course he wanted to help him. Bottom line is, if I see one more post or comment about how Tony is selfish and doesn’t care about the well-being of Peter, I might explode.

What really annoys me though is this:

S6 Sansa tells Jon that there is no saving Rickon because if he’s with Ramsay then he’s already dead. We, the audience, literally have seen evidence to back this up.

Anti’s: Sansa is so heartless! That’s her brother! How dare she! What a cold-hearted bitch! 

S6 conclusion: Sansa was right. Ramsay never had any intention of freeing Rickon.

Anti’s: ……. Whatever. At least Jon tried to do something. 

S7 Sansa tells Jon that he needs to punish the houses that have betrayed House Stark, the houses that were literally complicit in capturing Rickon and abetting in his consequent murder. They didn’t just fight with Ramsay and did nothing while Sansa was being tortured and abused; Smalljon Umber captured Rickon and handed him to Ramsay. And Sansa wants to punish them, not by murdering Alys Karstark and Ned Umber, but by stripping them of titles and land. They would probably then become wards of another house as Theon was once a ward of Ned Stark’s as punishment for the Greyjoy’s rebellion against the Iron Throne. 

Anti’s: Wow, Sansa is such a conniving bitch! She just wants the throne for herself! Look at her, she wants to punish these kids. She’s so heartless! She’s going to betray Jon! 

In comparison:

S7 Arya literally murders all of the Freys as punishment for being complicit in the killing of Robb, Talisa and Catelyn. 

Same Sansa Anti’s: Oh my god, go Arya! She’s so badass! She was totally in the right! Woohoo! Vengeance! 

The hypocrisy is strong in the Anti-Sansa fandom. 

anonymous asked:

Okay so in Batman Beyond there's an episode where Bruce and Terry go see a 'Batman Musical', just imagine that goes on in Gotham and Jason finds out and asks(forces/tricks) the batfam to go.

i’m finally answering this! i had a really rough week, which is why this took a while, but i kept thinking about this prompt and laughing, so thank you for that.

and on that note: are you serious, that’s amazing. i vaguely remember watching batman beyond but i don’t actually remember all that much about it. i’ll need to look this up.

but yes. yes. i want this to be a Thing.

i want to imagine it as something between holy musical b@man! and the ember island players. like. just picture the kind of crazy misinformed shit that these people are tossing into the mix because what’s the truth and what’s the lie, no one knows, they’re going to make a musical about batman and his however many kids/sidekicks anyway

(they people putting on this play are probably college students)

(stephanie has probably dropped by to help with set designs and laughed herself sick in the process)

getting back on track, how does jason find out about it?

there are two ways i think it could happen. one: jason loves lit. we know this. he collected first editions with alfred and bruce when he was a kid. in my personal experience, if you like lit, you almost definitely like theater in some sense as well. at the very least you’ve read plays. 

jason holds his goddamn red hood helmet like he’s hamlet and it’s yorick.

trust me, he likes plays.
