Guess who’s back! I know I’ve been on hiatus for some time now, but I’m making my return here. Although, replies may come a tad slower than they have in the past.
Anyways, since it’s been so long, I’m going to be dropping all prior threads. This might be disappointing to some, but I feel it’s necessary, as I don’t remember most of the threads I had going. And yes, this applies both to here and my NSFW blog.
That being said, go ahead and like or reblog this post for a starter! Be sure to specify who you want it to be from or for, though.
Email from contract company ended up not having anything to do with my particular contract. (They were warning us about people trying to get us to sign up for unions, which I guess is a thing that’s been happening? I think it’s more for the people on the shop floor though.) There may be a legal reason that I’m not aware of as to why they were so vague in their wording, but I politely suggested they consider phrasing it in such a way as to NOT induce panic in the future.
Home for the long weekend. Blitz is ECSTATIC.
Mom absolutely loved her bullet journal starter kit and I can’t wait to walk her through setting it up.
Ohio drivers are still absolutely batshit insane.
The cicadas are back and making noise and have apparently been dropping on people’s heads as they go through the front door. Between this and my allergies I’m okay with staying inside.
Overall, doing alright and more at peace than I have been in a while.
They say that people come into our lives for a reason, to help us live and grow, and we help them in return. I’m not sure if it’s true, but whatever way our stories end, even if we never meet again, I’ll cherish the memories we had and keep them close to my heart. My story wouldn’t be the same without you.
A/N: Long fics might be turning into my new aesthetic. I’m sorry.
You never truly believed in love at first sight ― there was no reason to. The very idea seemed far too preposterous to be taken seriously, too ludicrous to exist outside of dreamy movies or forgotten fairy tales. How could two strangers cultivate such deep, mesmerizing emotion in the mere seconds they held a glance? How was it possible for them to simply know of their fate in the short amount of time they encountered each other? ― No; there were no soulmates, no predestined encounters. At least not for you. For you, there was only the faint ghost of a broken heart, the haunting of crumbled expectations; and the strong, determined promise to never fool yourself into another failed attempt at romance.
When you first saw him, however, you felt like the cosmos had morphed into static.

❛ not all spells are bad, you must stray away from the bad magic. ❜ ❛ there’s nothing wrong with a bit of magic, as long as it’s for the good. ❜ ❛ you’re like a vase and the magic is the water. ❜ ❛ i don’t need magic to see that. ❜ ❛ not every spell is considered to be bad. ❜ ❛ this spell book here contains no such bad magic nor will it ever. ❜ ❛ i’m working up a new potion. it’s for the greater good, of course. ❜ ❛ i’ve never used my powers/magic for anything but good things. ❜ ❛ there is no competition with magic, you either possess, or you don’t. ❜ ❛ no one power/magic is better nor greater than the other. ❜ ❛ remember, everything you learn is to be used for good. ❜ ❛ you think every witch/sorcerer is bad? do i look evil to you? ❜ ❛ i’ve only ever used my magic/powers for good. ❜ ❛ it’s not the magic/powers that are bad, it’s the person who possesses it. ❜ ❛ there is good and bad in everything, you must always chose to be good. ❜ ❛ my powers/magic are not a weapon! i will not be treated as such! ❜ ❛ i cannot help you with your wishes, it’s far too evil. ❜ ❛ magic is a delicate thing and i treat it as such. ❜ ❛ i don’t always use magic/my powers, i don’t always need to. ❜ ❛ it is a blessing not a curse, it’s only a curse if you wish to do evil. ❜ ❛ i did come here to show off my powers/magic, what do you take me for? ❜ ❛
i’m not a witch! i’m a person possessing magic. big difference.
❜ ❛ these are healing potions, they will heal just about any form of life. ❜ ❛ the good always outweighs the bad, just remember that. ❜ ❛ it’s best to use magic/powers when you understand them. ❜
❛ i’ve never used magic for anything other than evil. ❜ ❛ i will be the greatest and the most powerful, mark my words. ❜ ❛ i’ve hexed so many people, i’ve lost count. ❜ ❛ a curse is never easy to lift, hence the sole purpose of it. ❜ ❛ what’s the point in having powers/magic, if you don’t take advantage? ❜ ❛ you have always abused your magical privileges. ❜ ❛ i wouldn’t use my powers/magic for the good if it was life and death. ❜ ❛ you really only know how to cast curses/hexes? ❜ ❛ i specialize in curses and hexes only, anything else is just noise. ❜ ❛ shhh, you shouldn’t even speak of such dark magic. ❜ ❛ this book is full of the darkest magic you’ll ever read. ❜ ❛ what is the difference between voodoo and dark magic? ❜ ❛ dark magic is wonderful, you learn the most from it. ❜ ❛ there are so many hexes/curses to cast, i never know which one to pick. ❜ ❛ have you ever had a curse/hex casted upon you? ❜ ❛ there is no such thing as good magic. ❜ ❛ why are you so wicked with such a beautiful gift? ❜ ❛ you do not deserve to possess magic/powers. ❜ ❛ i’ve got a wicked idea in mind, want to hear? it involves magic. ❜ ❛ the best magic of all, of course, is dark magic. ❜ ❛ have you ever wanted to step into voodoo? ❜ ❛ this a book of dark magic/voodoo, but it is not easy to open. ❜ ❛ you have to do a sacrifice to get this dark magic/voodoo book open. ❜ ❛ have you ever participated in voodoo ritual? it’s very liberating. ❜ ❛ all of these spells contain blood and sacrifice… ❜
what witch/sorcerer doesn’t own a spell book?
❜ ❛ for future reference, never interrupt my ritual again. ❜ ❛ gemstones are great collectibles for healing. ❜ ❛ every movie about witchcraft is kind of off point, i feel. ❜ ❛ i’m unable to use magic/my powers until i’m older. ❜ ❛ do you fly on broom stick and all that? ❜ ❛ it’s actually rather hard to stir up a potion. ❜ ❛ i don’t own a wand nor a broom stick, but i will drop a house on you. ❜ ❛ spell books are often hard to find. ❜ ❛ i could close my eyes, pretend to concentrate and you would be scared. ❜ ❛ you know they used to hang witches back in the olden days. ❜ ❛ this isn’t a spell, this is common sense. ❜ ❛ this isn’t magic, it’s just glitter. ❜ ❛ i’ve always wanted to live in a cabin in the woods though. ❜ ❛ the best time to do a ritual is of an evening. ❜ ❛ would like to do a healing ritual with me? it’s harmless. ❜ ❛ let’s go candle shopping, come on! i love candles! ❜ ❛ i’m still human, you know, with feelings! ❜ ❛ you know, there is something else i possess; feelings! ❜ ❛ look, it’s really not like any of that. ❜ ❛ what’s so special about it? nothing, of course. it’s not special. ❜ ❛ i don’t feel any greater or better because of it. ❜ ❛ there are spells/potions that can be used for both, good and evil. ❜ ❛ i would rather not use magic/my powers, i’d rather pretend i don’t have any. ❜ ❛ i would never flaunt it as if it’s something so great to have! ❜
I used to be super interested in witchcraft when I was little, but now I'm pretty curious about practicing it and where I should start??
Ultimately, you start wherever you want to.
Think about why you were interested in witchcraft as a kid. What drew you to it? What did you want to do? Do some research on modern witchcraft, what it is now. What can you do? What can you not do? Are your childhood interests still possible? Are they even still relevant to you as an adult? As an adult, what do you want; and, subsequently, can you do that with with craft? What would you like to do with magic? Is it possible? What would you like to stay away from? Why?
Answer those questions, really look down and figure out what it is you want, and even who you are, and you should get a good idea of where you should go. For example, say you want to get into witchcraft to feel closer to nature, particularly the ocean, and channel that chaotic gorgeous energy; that might be a good sign to study sea magic. Or, perhaps, you have a supply limit, but you want to be able to do all sorts of things with minimal supplies; energy work is relevant in most forms of magic, and can do a lot with minimal / no other ingredients. Or, maybe you want to be more creative with your magic; sigil work is wonderful for that, while still being low on supplies and discreet. Maybe you want to do everything you can; well, welcome to eclectic witchcraft.
Some varieties of magic, to give you an idea and get you started:
energy work ; candle magic ; crystal magic ; sachet magic ; knot magic ; poppet magic ; jar magic ; kitchen magic ; bath magic ; traditional magic ; urban magic ; glamour magic ; chaos magic ; sigil magic ; tech magic ; pop culture magic ; green magic ; elemental magic ; cottage magic ; sea magic ; storm magic ; space magic ; hedgework ; spirit work ; dragon magic ; shadow work ; blood magic ; sex magic ; death magic
Once you figure out a direction you want to go in, get some paper, find some reading material, and take notes. Research is one of the big things in witchcraft, and you’re going to be doing a bunch of it, particularly in the beginning, but honestly it never ends. Write what you want to know, or what you think you’ll want to use. Take what you read with a grain of salt; cross referencing is useful.
[Here] is a list of authors you should try to avoid - trigger warning for mention of various disturbing topics. [Here] is a post that talks about why your book on witchcraft might be full of it; if you have any questions as to why that might be, feel free to ask the OP or even myself. [Here] is a post that explains using discretion and critical reading in regards to witchcraft books.
When you feel you’re prepared to start doing spells, do some. It might be easier to start with a premade spell, and they still work if you didn’t write them yourself, but if you feel you wanna write your own, go for it. Take notes of what you do during your castings, particularly in the beginning, so when mistakes happen (and they will), you can go back and read and see where it might have gone wrong to try to fix it or avoid in the future.
And yes, you will make mistakes. We all did, and still do. The best part of magic is experimentation, finding what works for you. You’re not gonna get everything perfect; some things also just won’t work for you. Try to fix it, but if it isn’t working, just move on. Keep your confidence in yourself - remember we all screw up and had to go through this period of finding who we are as magic users within the craft. You will find it in your own time, no rush, do it at your own pace. It is YOUR magic, after all.
And that’s what I’ve got for right now (starting to feel a bit drained, so I can’t flesh this out like I want to, but I’m thinking of writing down topics to work on more posts later). For things I didn’t cover, here are some more posts to read through:
