Witch Tips for City Witches

City Witch Tips for all of my fellow witches stuck in apartments, dorms or other city areas.

  • If you can’t burn incense you can make your own sprayable incense by mixing alcohol (usually vodka or rubbing) with essential oils and a bit of oil, spray in the air to act like incense
  • If you are unable to go outside for whatever reason to get rain water (in my case just no where to collect it safely), fill a jar or glass with regular water and keep it near a cracked window to charge it with the wind, sound and scent of the rain outside. Same goes for storm water
  • Trapped in city and unable to get ocean water? Sea salt mixed with rain/storm water can be an excellent substitute
  • To continue on with water substitutes, if you can’t collect snow crushed ice from your fridge will suffice
  • Low key warding/protection you can use: spray moon water, salt water or sprayable incense about your apartment or dorm, place sigils under doormats, furniture, inside cupboards, etc; place crystals about hidden or out in the open, sweep and dust out the door or towards windows
  • If you need melted wax to seal a jar or for any other magical purpose, but can’t burn candles, by a wax melter and melt that wax and imagine the light from the burner acting like a flame (plus they are rather cheap, I got mine for 25 bucks)
  • Need stars in your craft but too much light pollution? Glow in the dark stars on your ceiling or wall can work just as well for visualization. Print out pictures of your favorite constellations or planets and place them up on your walls or on your altar. Live video feed of the night sky can also be easily found on the internet
  • Bath magic is amazing for low-key ‘in the woods’ witches. Use teas, milk, oils, herbs, bath bombs, bubble baths, salts, etc that relate to your intent. It is also a good place to meditate if you have roommates or family around that would disturb you otherwise
  • If you do for whatever reason need to burn a candle, birthday candles are small, melt fast, and don’t create a lot of smoke or smokey scent
  • Sigils are another great low-key form of magic. To boost them up, use color magic related to the color you draw them in, write them using quills made of feathers related to your intent, use colored paper, rub a drop of essential oil on them, charge them with crystals or in your windowsill
  • You don’t have to burn sigils to activate them, which is hardly an option when you are in a dorm or apartment. Other options are: Shredding them, erasing them, soaking them in a bath or shower, using body heat or your own pulse, etc
  • Miss having the outdoors and plants around? Windowsill gardens can really help. Small plants you can consider keeping in your windowsill or counter-tops: succulents, cacti, bamboo, lemongrass, basic, rosemary, mint, rosemary, mosses, aloe, snake plant, pothos (and other vines), carrots, beets, shallots, lettuce, spinach, garlic, chives, parsley, oregano, thyme, and marigold
  • Open your window to let the wind and air from outside to help energize you and clear out negative energies inside
  • Fun places to put sigils: under furniture, carved into soap, onto shampoo/conditioner bottles, on your make up, inside phone cases, in shoes, under bandages, sewn into pillow cases and blankets, behind pictures in frames, underside of nail polish, carved into wax squares for your wax melter, keys and keychains, behind mirrors or in medicine cabinets, on bookmarks, on or in binders and pencil cases, on medicine bottles, and water bottles/travel mugs
  • Easy to make and dispose of poppets: carrot sticks (one of my personal favorites), apples or other fruit, clothe, paper, popsicle sticks, paper towels/napkins, toilet paper rolls, eggs, celery stocks, and cotton balls
  • The internet is an amazing thing. Need some sounds to help you focus or meditate? Easily look up the sounds of rain, storms, wind, ocean waves, jungles, forests, etc
  • Christmas lights are fun and great way to use discrete witchcraft. Select ones in the colors you wish for them to bring ie green for growth, yellow for inspiration, white for protection, purple for psychic abilities, etc. 
  • Some everyday things you can use for discrete witchcraft that don’t cost much at all or that you most likely already have: water, table salt, black pepper, paper, crayons/pencils/pens/markers, vinegar, milk, tea, highlighters, make up and beauty supplies, shampoo and conditioner, rubber bands, paperclips, thumbtacks, computer/phone/tablet, music/music player, playing cards, dice, air freshener, perfumes, toothpaste, rice, flour, sugar, honey, and all kitchen herbs and seasonings.
  • Can’t afford gemstones or crystals on college budget? Crackle and dyed quartz you can find super cheap at craftstores and online. I bought a whole bag for 4 bucks. Use them based on their colors and shapes. Can’t afford that but still want to use rocks in your craft? Find some rocks you like outside, again use their colors and shapes to determine their correspondences. Want to use them for a specific purpose? Paint sigils on them in the color that corresponds with what you want! Charge them in your windowsill or with your own energy and intent. There you go!
  • Pocket mirrors are cheap, easy to carry around and great for glamours and on the go magic. 
  • Seriously though, glamour spells are going to be a good option for you. use your make up, skin products, hair care products, brushes/combs, perfume, mirrors, toothbrush/toothepaste and intent. Good to do while you are getting ready for your day
  • Dream magic is another friend of the city witch! Use crystals, sigils, herbs, etc near your bed before you go to sleep, drink some chamomile, get yourself a dream journal (mine is literally a notebook with construction paper on it), keep it and a pen near you. In the morning write down your dreams, your thoughts, how you feel (tired, refreshed, groggy, etc), and interpret them. 
  • Can’t afford tarot cards? Print out some, you can usually find them online and they won’t last as long as a real deck but it is a good temporary solution. Want a Ouija board but can’t keep one or need it to be easily hidden? Print one out, draw on one on paper or cardboard, fold it up and store it once you are done. Want a pendulum but can’t afford one? Use your favorite necklace, bracelet or keychain!
  • Tea and coffee magic is great, make your own tea blends with the herbs you like. Or just buy simple green or black tea and add sugar, milk, etc depending on your intentions
  • As I said before, crock pot magic. The Modern Cauldron: brew and cook all day with it, fill your apartment with the scent of the herbs and food to fill it with the energies they correspond with and you get a delicious meal to come home to! Most dorms allow them. Rice cookers also work well.
  • Can’t afford fresh food? Have to survive on ramen, canned soup, and microwaved meals? That is okay! They even correspond with things! Tomato soup for love, beauty and passion. Beef ramen noodles for strength, courage and longevity. Microwave mac n cheese for beauty and feminity. Look at their ingredients and what they correspond with. Sure its not as glamorous as a making a huge made by scratch traditional meal but its kitchen magic none the less. Stir it with your intent while you cook. It isn’t fancy but it works just as well!
  • Use a notebook or binder for a nice grimoire, decorate it as much as you want on the inside. Print out pictures of nature, animals, planets, stars, places, crystals, etc that you cant’ access/afford and use them in your craft. Spell books and grimoires are powerful tools
  • Don’t have a wand? Use a wooden spoon. Tie a colored string or ribbon to it to correspond with what energy you want it to have and move and flick it as you would a wand. 
  • Knitting, crocheting, and knot magic is very apartment friendly. As well as sewing and embroidering plus it is super calming.
  • Glitter, sequins, and beads are great in witchcraft! Use their colors to determine their correspondences. Put them in spell jars, sachets, bottles, etc. Glitter tip: if you spill any don’t fret, get some packing tape, wrap it around your hand with the sticky part outwards and dab at that glitter spill. You will literally pick up all of the glitter in seconds!
  • Enchant and charge your pots, pans, skillets, and other cookware to make every meal magical
  • Make moonwater in your windowsills. Use it for cleansing, beauty, divination, clarity, protection and purification
  • Take walks. Even if it is a city there is still nature about. Pigeons flying about, potted flowers outside of stores, grass growing in front lawns, etc. Enjoy yourself, even if it is not some wild, vast forest you can still connect with your local nature.
  • Pick up litter or garbage you see outside, being in the city we all see it. The natural world around you will appreciate you helping out. Bring a bag with you when you take your walks or travel and fill it with wrappers you see on the ground.

I hope this was helpful to all of my fellow city and dorm witches!

Horizon Zero Dawn and Cultural appropriation: A very different view.

For the first time EVER, I’m sitting on the other side of a discussion about appropriating native culture.  Why?  Well, let me lay the framework.

First off, I’m not a guy who “knows a Native American” or has a “Native friend”  I am a 100% Anishinabe (Ojibway) dude who lives on reserve and has fought racism, stereotypes, pan-Indianism, and cultural appropriation fiercely for as long as I can remember. I’ve been the victim of horrendous racial violence as a child, adolescent, and adult, and I’m also a gamer.

I am the first to point out anything that smacks of any of the above and after I saw the Dia Lacina essay on “Horizon: Zero Dawn” being culturally insensitive and appropriating Native culture, I felt for the first time in a situation like this that I had to say something in rebuttal.

Lacina takes issue with the use of the words Tribal, Primitive, Braves, and Savage being used in the game (fyi they’re used to describe predominantly white people in game and they’re White words we didn’t use to describe ourselves thus I claim no ownership of, nor want to, anymore than I want to be a redskin, Indian or Wahoo)  

It seems (IMO) that most of her beef comes from an apparent belief that numerous aspects of generic tribal culture that appear in the game (making clothing from skins, hunting with spears and bows, living in a Matriarchal society, etc) are the sole domain of the Native American and just to be safe and cleverly keep her POV less subject to scrutiny, she applies it even more broadly to indigenous people world wide (I will just refer to us in particular as NA cuz I’m lazy and I also don’t refer to myself as a Native American) and basically that anything that is remotely “tribal” shouldn’t be used in gaming without our or someone else’s permission.

 In fairness, I don’t know if she’s actually played the game but as someone who is currently in the midst of doing exactly that, I can tell you that I have a pretty good idea of what stuff triggered her being upset and why, and while I absolutely respect her right to get offended by whatever she likes, and she makes excellent points about some other games, I am going to point out that there are flaws with this logic.

First of all, the basics: HZD is set in a post-post-apocalyptic future where people are living in tribal groups in a very destroyed world.  Machines exist but as hybrid animal/dinosaur type creatures and technology is pretty much non-existent in day to day human life.  

The heroine of the story is a red haired, white girl named Aloy who lives as an outcast with her adopted father, Rost.  Without giving a lot away, they are fiercely shunned by the local tribe for something Rost did and also the fact that Aloy is motherless.  

Impressively and rightly, though somewhat dismissively remarked upon by Lacina, is the way women and especially women of color are portrayed so positively in-game as this particular tribe is a total Matriarchy run by elders of various ethnicity.  African, Asian, White, and a variety of undefined people of color are common everywhere in the game.  (The leader of one band of warriors is a very fierce, commanding, intelligently portrayed black woman with a powerful presence.)  It reflects a fairly global society from a “skin color” perspective without any horrible accents or broken speech.

They worship an “All-Mother” goddess and their culture is (at least how I saw a lot of it) fairly heavy on European i.e. Celtic, Germanic, Scandinavian, etc type symbolism and the rest is filled in with mostly generic tribal-ish stuff that you could find in countless cultures around the world.

 I really didn’t get a “Native American” vibe off the game.  Of course, I don’t automatically presume to claim sole ownership of things like tribal life, hunting with bows and spears, and worshiping spirits of various elements solely for my own.  Random fact: Because there are over 500 distinct First Nations in N. America, we, believe it or not, didn’t all ride horses, live in tipis, use bows and arrows, tobacco and sage, and worship Eagles and Wolves.  Why? Well…use your brain.  Tobacco and Sage don’t grow EVERYWHERE, horses came over with the Europeans (and if you saw where I live you couldn’t have and cant for the most part get a horse through the bush if you tried) Eagles and Wolves don’t live EVERYWHERE….get the point?  Anyways….

If you examine Rost, he like most of the men has a braided beard and other seemingly Viking/Middle Ages inspired features, is white, speaks clear, unbroken English, and is a loving, protective and very positive role model for the girl.   Aloy for her part, is also fairly Viking-esque (to the point of looking incredibly like Lagaertha from the show Vikings but with red hair) also Egrit from GoT, and is no damsel in distress who needs men to save her. NOWHERE in the game have I encountered any Tipis, wigwams, Sweatlodges, or Non-White people speaking in stereotypical “Me smoke-um peace pipe, He go dat-a way” fashion.

The  opening cinematic is very touching (and long) as we see the orphaned Aloy as a baby in Rost’s care being carried around in a bundle on his back (which pretty much every culture did in one form or another at some point in time) and him ultimately taking her to the spot where a child of the tribe receives it’s name.

I really liked this idea as it isn’t often portrayed in a lot of mediums outside of stereotypical “Dances With Wolves” bullshit. Also, naming ceremonies are not the sole domain of NA people and what occurs bears zero resemblance to any NA ceremony I know of.  (It was actually a little Lion King at one point lol) But it’s a powerful moment in the beginning with much more that occurs during it but I won’t spoil that either.

Aloy herself is a pretty complex character.  She’s extremely independent, defiant, and questions pretty much everything about why things are the way they are and wants to do something about it.  You actually begin playing her as a 6 year old which is pretty unique and even then she’s tough and fearless and determined to explore her world.  

She is in no way hyper-sexualized (I’m looking your way Overwatch) Her clothing and everyone else’s, is utilitarian and appropriate for the environments she lives in, and so far, I have not encountered anything with her or any other character that made me go “WTF?”and trust me, my radar for that shit is HIGHLY SENSITIVE.  This isn’t Avatar, people.  It’s not John Smith. It’s not The Great Wall or Pocahontas.  This isn’t white dude shows up and saves the helpless non-white people while helpless native woman falls in love with him stuff.  It’s a fictitious future where we maniacs blew it up, damn us all to hell!

But here’s the more annoying thing for me as an actual Anishinabe.  I don’t need people speaking for me or getting offended on my behalf.  I am very capable of doing that myself. I am also in no way writing this claiming to be speaking for any other NA people or persons. It’s based on my observations from actually playing HZD and examining the various fictional “cultural” elements in the game.

If you see a skin tied inside a hoop and automatically assume it’s a dreamcatcher” ripping off “our culture” (FYI Dreamcatchers are a 20th century thing whose popularity was a result of pan-Indianism that exploded in the 70s.) or if you see feathers on a spear or as part of a costume (nowhere is anyone wearing a single eagle feather in the back of a beaded headband or a Dakota looking headdress either) and automatically presume it to be ripping off NA culture, you’re REEEEEEEEEEALY reaching.  If you think caring for the environment, obeying matriarchs, worshipping elemental spirits, or making your own clothes is solely the property of NA culture, see previous statement.

By all means get offended.  Get offended by Chief Wahoo.  Get offended by the Washington Redskins.  Get offended that thousands of Native women have been murdered or gone missing and nothing’s been done about it.  Get offended by Johnny Depp or Robert Beltran playing Native people instead of actual Native people getting those roles.  Get offended by shit like Adam Sandler’s “Ridiculous 6” where a native woman is called a “hot piece of red prairie meat” or Depp’s “Lone Ranger” movie.

Get offended that my family was destroyed by the Residential Schools and that the 60s scoop took babies away from their families and people, that forced sterilizations took place and mass graves of dead Native children exist at former Residential School sites.

Don’t just jump on the I’m offended bandwagon because you saw some feathers or skins or spears or bows in a game and immediately grew indignant and wanted to claim them as OUR culture.  They’re not.  They’re almost globally universal in numerous cultures at various points in time.  Get offended, as she rightly mentioned, when the game Overwatch sexualizes the shit out of almost every female character and takes West Coast tribal art and makes a costume out of it.  

THAT is appropriation.  White people holding powwows in Europe (powwows are also pretty much not traditional and are extremely pan-Indian, not to mention full of us appropriating each other’s Native cultures ie. Dakotas wearing Jingle Dresses, Ojibway wearing Dakota regalia, etc) is appropriation.

This game……I’m just not seeing it the same way.  And I’m nobody.  I have no ties to Guerilla or anybody other than myself and my community.

I actually made a small post a few weeks ago when I found this particular picture on Sarah’s pintrest.
Keep in mind this is just a theory.

Gist of it is Elide Crochans bloodline. We know she has witch blood. Now at the time we only knew of Manon’s Ironteeth Blood. So my proposal is that the witch blood in Elide’s veins is actually Crochan, and an oracle. I also think that the Crochans are actually hidding in the Southern Continent. (Chaol!!!) Now for the evidence!

The name Lochan mean in Sanskrit The Eye.

The Crochans have been in hidding as Healers and Wise Women .

Annieth Goddess of Wise Things.


“The term “wise woman” usually refers to a folk healer or midwife, often in the context of pre-modern European peasantry.

A wise woman can be a type of witch
One of the cunning folk” CUNNING FOLK

Cunning Folk (Wikipedia again) Cunning folk, also known as folk healers or (more rarely) as white witches, are practitioners of folk medicine, folk magic, and divination within the context of the various traditions of folklore in Christian Europe (from at least the 15th up until at least the early 20th century).

Now the part that intrested me in that was Divination.
Divination (from Latin divinare “to foresee, to be inspired by a god”,[2] related to divinus, divine) is the attempt to gain insight into a question or situation by way of an occultic, standardized process or ritual.

Or an Oracle. (Wikipedia again) In classical antiquity, an oracle was a person or agency considered to provide wise and insightful counsel or prophetic predictions or precognition of the future, inspired by the gods. As such it is a form of divination

WISE is the keyword there.

See how it becomes full circle?

*Elide pretended to be an Oracle in EOS and part of her costume was RED ROBES. EOS374 We also know from EOS that Rhiannon was Brannon’s oracle and she wore a crown of stars. Matron Blackbeek owns that crown now..

*Elide is constantly decsribed as cunning.

*Lorcan often says the “cunning witch in EOS”

*Uncle Vernon didnt trust healers to fix Elides leg.
Why is that? I argue because they could have been a Crochan and would realize Elide as one of their own, and that would upset Vernon’s plans.

We also know that Cal and Marion were very protective of Elide and sheltered her. But wanted to seen her to Magic school also. (HOF)

* QOS p211 Marion and Call visted the Southern Continent.
* HOF Manon is hunting the Crochan in Fenharow, where Yrene is from. Yrene goes to the Southern Continent to learn to be a healer.
*P70 HOF Manon killed her first Crochan in the mountains 100 years prior. Marion is a bastard born in the mountains of Roseamel (Possibly Marions grandmother or great grandmother )

Now in EOS Elide’s says that the Wyrdkey speaks to her it whispers EOS12-14.
Also she can sense Lorcan and danger.

Elides scent is another that is constantly thrown in our face. Cinnamon and elderberries.
Here what google has to say about each:

*Cinnamon can increase concentration and helps with focus, especially if practicing divination.

*Elderberry is a potently magical fruit that has been used for healing and blessings, but it also finds itself used for curses, summoning ghosts and evil spirits and banishing as well.

Maeve herself offers up a clue in EOS p645

“Lady Elide Lochan, daughter of Cal and Marion Lochan. No wonder the witch itches to retrieve you, if her bloodline runs in your veins”

Which bloodline is that?

And now on to those images. They are from SJM pintrest , and really what got me to look into this whole thing. If you add up everything in my opinion the evidence is strong that Elide is a Crochan witch not an Ironteeth.

Also would like to note that @propshophannah has a post about Elide’s scent and another about her part to play. I didnt link it because I’m on mobile and cant find it. Im not sure if anyone eles does.

this video^

this video is on my personal shortcuts, i have only 5 things in my shortcuts i click on more than once a week, google, facebook, tumblr, youtube, and this video and this.i watch this video at least once a week, on bad weeks i watch it daily. natewantstobattle is my second favorite youtuber, second only to chuggaaconroy. now, on to the explanation of what this video means to me (yeah, that was just the intro)

this is him saying, hey, i know people have a hard time sometimes, and i want to help in some way. but, something about this video is that he made it unlisted, he made it so that you cant just find it, you have to be sent to it. he made a way for people to show someone that they care for each other, and i care about all of you. i can only hope that i will someday be considered so inspiring to someone that if i post a video like this, that they will find it to be that important. he revealed this video in another video were he realized just that, he realized that people think of him as a role model, and he decided to use that to further making other feel better. as  far as i can tell, Nate Smith is a good guy that i would like the chance to meet someday. i don’t use many “hashtags” but i think i would use stay happy, because it is a reminder to do just that. if any of you ever need someone who will make the effort to care, remember this post and come find me, i promise i will do everything and anything in my power to protect and care for you.


steve & natasha au! series / ‘crazy stupid love’ inspired

“You!” she shouted through the bar, ignoring the dozen of eyes on her.

“Buck?” he asked as he saw his friend pause in the midst of a sentence. Seeing how his best friend had stopped abruptly his sentence, the blonde turned around only to see a redhead, the one from the other night. She’s the friend of the brunette Bucky tried to pick up, he remembered.

(“He’s sweet and smart, okay, but he kinda looks like a cauliflower” the brunette told her friend.

“Who looks like a cauliflower?” Bucky interrupted the ladies. “Hi” he smiled, “I’m Bucky, this is my friend Steve” he added, unable to take his eyes off of the brunette.

“Hi” the brunette said smiling, while Natasha looked confused and a little bit annoyed by the intrusion of the very handsome pair “I’m Wanda, this is Natasha”, Wanda added.

“Who looks like a cauliflower?” Bucky asked again.

“Uh, Bruce Banner” Wanda said, almost stuttering her words. Oh, she was so under his spell. “My friend thinks he’s sexy." 

"Well, see, my best friend here, thinks you’re very sexy.” Bucky said turning to Natasha. “As for me, I happen to find you very attractive” he said turning back to Wanda. What a charmer.)

Her heels almost clicking with the faint music of the bar, she walked towards the blonde decidedly. Furrowing his eyebrows, he wondered what all this was about. Why was she shouting across the bar? why was she walking towards him? why was she walking towards him like that? and most importantly, why was she kissing him?!

Her hands were on both side of his face, seizing him; her body was leaning close against his, and her lips were pressed against his own. So, yes, she was kissing him, he wasn’t hallucinating!

Sure, the kiss had surprised him at first, but what surprised him the most was the way he reacted to it. Because as soon as he realized the pair of lips he had on his own and how soft they were, he wrapped his arms around her tiny waist and actually lifted her up in the air, deepening the kiss and tasting the vodka she had sunk down a few minutes before.

“Remember me?” she said when they broke away, still in his arms.

“Yeah” he faintly said, looking in her eyes.

“Still find me attractive?” he nodded.

“Want to bring me home?” he nodded again.

THIS IS SO BAD OMG IM SORRY. THE EDIT, THE TEXT. I CANT WITH ME.

park jimin as your boyfriend

here is my fourth bts as your boyfriend for our lovely park jimin! i really hope you guys like this one, i was a bit iffy about it. but please enjoy and feel free to request for the groups i write for! 

Yoongi / Taehyung / Hoseok / Jungkook

Seventeen / Got7


- honestly jimin is a huge cuddler like sometimes you’ll wake up as the big spoon or lying on top of him literally. you just never know when it comes to him

- surprisingly, you both get up around the same time everyday so whoever wakes up first usually just stays in bed and waits for the other because ya’ll are adorable like that

- like jimin hogs the bathroom because he takes way too long showers and literally uses all the hot water and you get so mad but he’ll just smile real big and squish your cheeks to make your anger practically dissolve. (or ya know, he always suggests you can shower with him, which you rarely agree to. other times you just whack him with a towel and tell him to quit being greasy)

- sometimes though he asks if he can do something random like try to paint your nails or braid your hair in the morning and you’re kinda just like ‘uh i guess?’ and tbh he doesnt do a terrible job like the nail polish stays on the nail and braid is even kinda nice, high five jimin

- you are always forcing chim to eat his breakfast because he tries to skip it all the time so you are nearly force feeding him a banana or toasts every morning and he acts like he’s annoyed by it but secretly when he’s in the middle of practice, he’s so thankful for the extra energy 

- and he does the same to you because you never even remember to eat breakfast for yourself so he’ll prepare something like a bagel and have you eat it on the way to work

- he always walks you to your job first like a proper gentleman and you always give him a kiss on  the cheek and a big hug before going to work and he blushes like a little boy, its super cute

- jimin will be so good to you omg like i really think he’ll do cute things like “anonymously” sending you chocolates to work or giving you piggy back rides when your feet hurt from wearing heels like ughh how cute

- dates with jimin are really different because he really likes doing the whole being fancy and dressing up deal (he even buys you new clothes to wear out like..) but other times he likes to order like three pizzas and sit on the couch in minimal clothing while watching cartoons and it’s really lazy but then there are times when he wants to be really active like 'omg lets go take a random salsa dance class!’ or he signs you up for couple’s yoga lol

- he also likes going to the trampoline park with you. he has the time of his life literally  flipping off the walls and when you say you wanna try doing one he is like 'no way, sorry babe’ and you pout and use your puppy eyes until he gives in and helps you do a front flip but i mean you’re on a trampoline so you could really do it by yourself if you actually tried but jimin is a protective little shit

- speaking of being a protective little sit, when he took you to get your ears pierced, he was a anxious mess because sometimes you couldnt handle pain like that well and omg you were doing it voluntarily!! so he literally held your hand so tight and kept rubbing your back when in reality all you did was wince and cringe up a bit when they actually pierced your ear lol 

- he’s just really protective in general though. like that dude was checking out your butt? oh hell no, sometimes has to be said. 

- okay but hear me out- his giggle

- you sometimes tease him by calling him chimchim and tickle him under the chin or something and he’ll do that beloved giggle and its so adorable. you even recorded it once and listen to it when you miss him

- CUDDLE BUG STRIKES AGAIN like anytime he can, he cuddles up with you. it could be anywhere- the couch, in bed, while making dinner, in the car. he loves holding you in his arms and knowing you’re safe and warm. (when you guys cuddle, you almost always fall asleep on each other and the other members have like 100 embarrassing pictures of you like drooling and jimin with his mouth wide open from snoring)

- you like to wear his boxers sometimes when you cant find pants and he gets SO embarrassed but he also thinks its super hot and bites his lip

- well since lips was mentioned- just imagine his lips against yours, so soft and slow, making you feel like really lucky because he’s so passionate and loving. plus he’s probably into neck kissing like he loves kissing your neck, sometimes leaving hickies, sometimes not. when he’s mad, he kisses you like he’s going to lose you. his kisses then are hard and frequent and slightly rushed but still holding that affect that makes you need to fan your face

- on another note, you get nightmares sometimes, which of course makes you wake up scared and shaking and it literally breaks jimin’s heart so he’ll draw you in and begin singing really softly in your ear and rub your back in hypnotic circles until you go to sleep completely calm and content

- when you cry is another time that jimin will sing to you. he absolutely hates seeing you cry so he’ll sing in a silly but still melodic voice and hold your hands and sometimes he’ll spin you around and slow dance with you or he’ll just hold you close and rock you back and forth

- honestly you can always hear his voice from somewhere. he likes to sing in the shower, in the kitchen, along to jingles on the commercials, and especially to the radio in the car. you two like to go on drives at night and just look at the night and sing to slow songs in the car

- another one of jimin’s talents is dancing. he likes to try and teach you to dance. even if you’re rubbish, he praises you and you cant tell if he genuinely thinks you’re doing okay or if he just doesnt want you to give up. but you always continue to learn the choreography to his songs and having really bad dance battles with him and the other members and honestly you’re on the level below even seokjin and namjoon but they all still cheer for you when you go against jimin or hoseok and its a lot of fun 

- jimin always takes the time to praise your talent too, even if its something silly like your ability to apply chapstick he’s like 'yasss, just look at you being fantastic’ and tbh its very uplifting

- you two are always uplifting each other actually. he’s quite insecure a lot of the time to you give him compliments all the time. you sometimes write him little post-it notes that say things like “how are you so handsome?” and slip them into his coat pockets for later or you leave him little videos on his phone reminding him to eat and smile. he personally likes to send you inspiring quotes that sometimes come with a picture of him blowing you a kiss or something silly. you both never let the other feel like they arent loved

- the first time you guys said i love you was because jimin couldnt find his shoes he had to wear that day for some promotion and he was searching everywhere for them and so were you and eventually you found them like under the couch and you gave them to him and he was like 'omg you found them, i love you!’ and you legit freeze and drop the shoes and he covers his mouth and his eyes are wide and his cheeks are a bright red and he’s scared but then you start tearing up because he finally said it and then you two hug and you whisper in his ear how much you love him and he hugs you tighter and keeps kissing the side of your head

- your relationship with jimin is overall playful and comfortable and neither of you would want to spend your life with anybody else

adhd symptom list

so about 6 months ago, i figured out i have – and have had (since i was a young kid) – adhd. i found out because one of my mutuals happened to reblog a post of symptoms that mentioned that adhd is way underdiagnosed in women. i’ve reblogged posts from the @adhd-community that might help others to diagnose themselves, but since i am a pretty textbook case, i wanted to put together my own list to try and help people.

adhd is classified by three major symptoms: hyperactivity, impulsiveness, and inattention. here’s how that manifests in me:


  • spacing out
  • day-dreaming constantly
  • spacing out even when something really important is going on
  • spacing out in the middle of things i am very invested in, like conversations about things that are important to me with people i really love
  • constant distraction. drifting off. circling back. “oh shit what just happened in this situation, i completely spaced”
  • forgetting to do very important things even though i keep reminding myself over and over. i have to pay rent. i have to pay rent. …shit forgot to pay my rent.
  • forgetting whole conversations / events / etc. 
  • introduce myself to someone. i’m so focused on telling them who i am and shaking their hand that i don’t even hear them tell me their name.
  • being right in the middle of something. getting distracted by something else. forgetting i was ever in the middle of doing anything else. (this happens when i’m texting all the time. i’ll put my phone down and just. forget about it.)
  • feeling lazy, stupid, or just in generally like a messy, sloppy person because i can never get my shit together. it seems like other people have a really easy time doing things that i really, really struggle with like remembering hw and completing projects they start and keeping stuff organized.
  • people are talking to me but the words coming out of their mouth sound like gibberish even though i consciously know they’re saying things that should make perfect sense
  • even if i’m watching something im very invested in i can’t resist the urge to repeatedly check my phone. even happens when im reading or writing
  • i have between 7-20 tabs open in my web browser at any given time
  • instead of focusing on doing one task, i often cycle between many tasks, not so much multi-tasking as rapid-tasking, going in circles until i finally get something done
  • struggle to finish anything i start because its incredibly difficult to muster the energy to focus on any one thing for long enough
  • i am frequently distracted / irritated by stimulus other people find innocuous (strong smells, repetitive sounds, physical sensations like when i breathe on myself when im sleeping)
  • laser focus / tunnel vision: i become so focused on one thing that i do not hear or see anything else (a tv show, a video game, etc.) if people talk to me i do not see or hear them. 
  • VERY disorganized. i lose things constantly, forget due dates and times, etc. my room is ALWAYS a mess. planners don’t help because i lose them, can never remember to write in them or check them.
  • tendency to make careless mistakes because i don’t notice details or because i forget instructions - i misread emails, fail to complete tests correctly, fail to fill in forms correctly
  • i forget even shit i do every day. i forget to eat. or go to the bathroom. or take my vitamins or brush my teeth. i forget that shit all the time
  • late to everything because i got lost and distracted while im getting ready so everything takes 5 times as long as usual
  • inability to prioritize. inability to manage my time. spending hours on shit that doesn’t matter instead of stuff that matters a lot


  • fidget constantly. jiggle my leg when im seated. constantly shift around even when im lounging around
  • even when im lounging i need to get up and pace at least once or twice every few hours or i feel like im losing my mind
  • if i get really excited while im watching a tv show i need to get up and pace and dance and be really active to offload all the adrenaline.
  • constantly restless 
  • my brain just goes and goes and goes and often feels like its moving too fast and i can’t really keep up. a lot of the time this keeps me awake at night because i literally can’t stop thinking. 
  • accidentally talking way too loud
  • shouting when i don’t need to shout, laughing too loud, getting really amped about really mundane shit. 
  • motor mouth
  • always have energy even when im exhausted - even when im really tired it feels like there’s a metronome inside me that never stops, like this perpetual motion device i can’t shut off
  • late to everything because sometimes time doesn’t even feel real? like what is a minute… sometimes i can do like 80 shittrillion things in 5 minutes sometimes i blink and its been 2 hours. how.
  • picking at acne, biting my nails, playing with my hair, playing with my jewelry, playing with my phone.
  • this feeling like i need to be doing something all the time if i am not actively doing something i am wasting time i cannot afford to waste any time. i need to be doing something at all times (which is why sleeping is so hard)
  • a feeling like my skin is too tight, like i’m about to spontaneously combust. “my brain is a house fire.”
  • boredom isn’t a passive feeling - it’s active for me, and it makes me feel weirdly desperate and angry.
  • feeling “jazzed” (as i usually put it): i have so much energy it feels like i’m going to explode. i feel simultaneously desperate and paralyzed. i need to do something, many things, and i need to do all of them RIGHT NOW but i can’t do any of them because i don’t know where to start and i can’t focus on any one of them because i’m busy thinking about all the others
  • the thought of spending hours doing one activity makes me uneasy especially if i will not have control over how to schedule the time
  • experience HUGE BURSTS OF LOVE / INSPIRATION when i find something new that often tapers off into disinterest as soon as it is not new. i get bored of things i like very, very quickly
  • struggle to finish anything because as soon as the inspiration has worn off i want to do 12 other things instead.


  • “oh my god why did i say that / why did i do that.”
  • getting so focused on the fact that i’m waiting to talk that you don’t even notice what the other person is saying
  • interrupting or talking over people people because i need to get my thought/reaction out.
  • doing things that i know i’m going to regret because i just need to for some reason
  • angry outbursts that are a BURST then a sizzle - you lash out and then you’re done. you don’t even feel that angry anymore
  • accidentally intruding on people because i just opened the door without thinking
  • honestly just constantly doing thing without thinking. people will tell me i’m brave or daring for doing some of the shit i do and i’m just like no i just never think about fucking anything before i do it, ever
  • like honestly if it looks like i don’t give a fuck it’s because i just failed to give a fuck when i probably should have.
  • part of my motor mouth is that when i’m in an active conversation with very little waiting in it is that sometimes i don’t even know what i’m gonna say before i say it. 
  • starting conversations at inappropriate times. like. say. in movie theaters
  • i hate to be interrupted when im talking about things even if its with another person’s thought or by a waitress or what have you. i hate it. i will always just try to keep going afterwards and if people don’t cooperate i get really quietly upset
  • waiting in lines is fucking torture. waiting to do anything is just the fucking worst
  • walking into things or knocking shit over or even getting really hurt because i don’t think before i act
  • the occasional nasty passive aggressive email at work because i just cant resist temptation.
  • getting frustrated and self-loathing and deleting shit or throwing shit out because i just need to take action.
  • breaking up awkward silences because someone has to say something. not even awkward silences just…sustained one. feeling like i need to talk all the time and keep conversations going

these aren’t the only possible symptoms of adhd, but it’s a lot of them. i know this post is long but i hope it helps some of you - maybe somebody like me, who doesn’t realize they’re adhd. maybe somebody who just needs to hear that somebody else is experiencing life the way they do. take care of yourselves, babes

I don’t understand why s/u fans (im not using st*ns since the word was ruined for me via another fandom…) keep saying “oh this alien is blue there not even real they can’t be white or black its just A KARTOON!”

Like have y'all seen how aliens are portrayed in our media? Hell look at Superman his story is practically an immigrants story trying to find were he fits in a new world that does not accept nor celebrate his heritage.

Or Martian Manhunter literally survived a genocide by those who saw themselves superior to the Green martians. Who also changes his own body in order to please humans.

Jazz from tfs is coded black ALL THE TIME. I love him but in G1 he was obviously the hip black guy with the moves, groovin. Just listen to him talk. And even years later he’s had a panel dedicated to him protecting a black child from being shot by a cop. Tfs rid 2014 if you want to find it.

Also just take a look at Arthur in general that whole show is coded anthro animal looking people. Actually all shows with anthro animals are technically coded so yeah there we go.

[There’s a ton more examples of this type of thing feel free to add any]

And not even just aliens even fantasy creatures portray REAL events that affected minorities in there story go ahead I’m sure you can think of a bunch of media that have used “x creature is racist or xenophobic towards another creature in this fantasy world”

Also let’s not forget distinct features (not just noticeable lips/etc.) that can resemble features or even clothing, languages of EXISTING cultures on these characters.

So now you all can stop with this character can not be coded mess because there made by HUMANS [like you and me :)] who use others cultures to make things “seem” alien for there viewers. Honestly if you can tell a character was inspired by a certain style or even person/etc like 70s/etc You shouldn’t be saying an alien can’t be coded as black. 😘

Are you ready for the stand
Blood on the ground
And mud on your hands
Take another breath
Make another try
You think you’re gonna break
You think you’re gonna die

Get off the dirt
Listen to the crowd
Screamin’ your name
Screamin’ it loud
I know you think you can’t
I know you think you’re done
But we can’t stop
Until we’ve won

You’re not alone
We’re not afraid
This is our moment it won’t come again

So lean on me and find your feet
We will not accept defeat

Get up
When your body’s screaming out
Get up
And your hope is fading now
Get up
And the light is dimming down
Get up
And your strength is waning…

anonymous asked:

what are your favorite fictional mythology books? (like tsoa) i cant find many lol

honestly there are very few fiction mythology books that are quality and i don’t know if you just mean Greek mythology specifically but here goes:

  • It’s not done yet and certainly hasn’t been edited, but I’ve been working on my own retelling of Hades and Persephone, called The Queen Below, that’s wlw. You can read it on Wattpad for free! Check it out.
  • Receiver of Many/Destroyer of Light by @kata-chthonia which is an erotica retelling of the Hades and Persephone myth (disclaimer: it’s very adult, but she did a lot of research into the myth and into just… everything. I thought it was quite good. My friend and I talk about it and we’re excited to read future books!)
  • Deathless by Catherynne M Valente is a retelling of the Russian folktale called “The Death of Koschei the Deathless” and so it’s Russian/Slavic mythology. It’s about a girl who grows up in Russian during the revolution seeing magic and becomes the bride of an immortal king and how magic/war/death changes her. It’s currently my favorite book.
  • Uprooted by Naomi Novik is slightly reminiscent of Deathless, because it’s fantasy and has a lot of roots based in Slavic folklore/culture. It’s not exactly a mythology book because it’s original content but it’s like a fairytale basically. It’s about magic and an evil forest and was a little boring in the middle but I thought it was pretty good.
  • Abandon/Underworld/Awaken by Meg Cabot is sort of a retelling of the Hades and Persephone myth? I mean it’s certainly influenced by it and it quite alike, but it’s not actually about Hades and Persephone. It’s modern, about a girl who has a near death experience in her youth and escapes the clutches of death, but meets this dude in the place she goes that ends up following her back to life and sort of protects her and basically he’s Hades and she’s Persephone. It’s YA. I haven’t read it in awhile so I don’t know how quality it is, if you know what I mean.
  • The Dark Wife by Sarah Diemer is a retelling of Hades and Persephone, with Hades being a woman. I didn’t think it was very good honestly (basically like a poorly researched fanfic) but a lot of people seem to like it so I usually just recommend it because I’m typically incredibly critical of books. (@drownedpoet called me out on that in the group chat once) I’m pretty sure there’s a free PDF of it floating around on the internet. (this was what inspired me to write my own version)
  • The Goddess Test by Aimee Carter is YA and it’s a series and I never finished it but I read it when I was like 13 and thought it was good then. Another sort of retelling of Hades and Persephone. It’s modern. It’s different. Again, can’t really say if it’s quality or not because it’s been so long.
  • Sunblind by @ibuzoo / @rmeisel is a poetry book that’s a modern retelling of Apollo and Icarus. I haven’t read it myself but Ramona is an amazing writer and everyone seems to love it. She posts excerpts every now and then. I believe she’s writing a sequel to it as well!

ok honestly i’m drawing a blank now so yeah. that’s all i’ve got. tsoa is usually included in this list but you’ve already read it. it’s 4:20 am.everything is Hades and Persephone basically.

Member: Yoongi x Jimin

Type: Fluff

Yoongi’s POV

I had never actually intended on dating at all, but you know, a person gets lonely. There were only so many nights I could spend alone, left to my own devices, before the idea of actually having a companion began to sound appealing. I wasn’t necessarily romantic, or bashful, or willing to ask out any girl in any fashion. For the most part, I liked being alone. Until I didn’t. 

“What the hell kind of questions are these?” I grumbled, squinting at the bright screen in the middle of the darkness which was my bedroom. “How frequently do you bathe or shower?”

Yah, what was I getting myself into? Maybe dating wasn’t something that was necessary after all. I leaned back from the computer and scanned the room. Lonely. Again. Okay, maybe I could grit my teeth and bare the questions. 

“Yah! Have you ever written something on the wall of a public toilet?” I understood the idea of having a multi-answer style quiz to determine your personality traits, but this was just a pain. I sped my finger quickly on the wheel of the mouse to get to the bottom of the page, slamming on the submit button without another thought. 

I waited patiently as the progress bar loaded, tapping my fingers against the table. I wasn’t entirely certain if I was excited by the prospect of possibly talking to girls who have reached the same point of desperation as I had. After all, if they were on this website, weren’t they just as unfit as I was to be in a relationship? Wasn’t there something wrong with all of us?

“Oh, she’s…she’s a he,” I muttered to myself as a fresh page finally popped up with my potential matches. Maybe it was a glitch? I scrolled, my stomach dropping to my feet. Why was I being inundated with pictures of men? 

“Aish,” I groaned, realizing the mistake I had made. Obviously one of the survey questions I skipped was more important than I thought. I quickly tried to locate the settings page. Surely, I could switch my interest back to women. 


DIng. Ding. Ding. 

My inbox seemed to be blowing up, judging by the small numbers multiplying by the envelope on the toolbar. I felt my face grow hot with embaressment. How could I be getting messages already? 

I sighed, grappling with my inner thoughts as I clicked at the envelope. Admittedly, my curiosity was getting the better of me. I clicked at the first highlighted toolbar, revealing the face of a very handsome boy named Jimin. 

“Hi Yoongi…that’s a nice name. Honestly this is my first time messaging someone here…I’m incredibly nervous…but I couldn’t help myself…you were too gorgeous to pass up.”

I felt my face grow warm again, but this time with a different kind of feeling attached to the heat. Was I blushing? Aish, Why was I blushing? I had no intention of doing anything with this boy. I was straight. As an arrow. 

…but he was really cute…and he thought I was gorgeous. 

A boy thought I was gorgeous. 

My palms were sweaty as I stood in the middle of the sidewalk. People rushed past me, but I remained still, a tower of nervous energy in a sea of calm. 

“Yoongi!” a velvet voice called from somewhere to my right. “Yoongi-ah!” 

I cut my eyes in the direction of the voice and felt as if someone had punched me in my chest. My breath was immediately cut short and I felt my heart leap into my throat. There he was. I was actually doing this. 

Jimin was actually here. 

I would be a liar if I told you that I hadn’t felt sick to my stomach as my fingers floated over the keyboard, typing a response back to Jimin that night. He was just so sweet and so hopeful that I couldn’t crush whatever heartfelt notion he had created toward me. 

I told myself that I would only reply once, casually speak with the guy and make it clear that I had no intention of even venturing down a path that seemed like a relationship with him. 

That was until I didn’t. 

I continued messaging him, even gathering up what little pride and courage I had left to ask him for his phone number. 

And now I was going on a date. 

It was an incredibly conflicting feeling to meet someone you had been talking to over the internet in person for the first time. You have all of these ideas of what they would be like, what they would actually look like. I tried to prepare myself for the inevitable. A 400 lb. pedophile to find me on the streets of Seoul, luring me to my death. Naturally that’s what everyone thinks when they meet an online Romeo, isn’t it? 

That’s why as I watched Jimin battle the crowd to get to me, I almost stopped breathing. He was real. This was my reality. Nothing could prepare me for the way the streetlights and neon reflected off his dewy cheekbones. The way he bit his lip as he focused on me. The way his dirty blonde hair fell over his forehead like feathers, and battled with the wind as he walked. 

“Yoongi,” Jimin repeated as he stood in front of me, his eyes disappearing in his smile. “You look pretty.”

“Jimin-ah,” I chuckled, unsure of what to do with my body. I made a slight bow. 

“Why are you so stiff?” Jimin chuckled. His cheeks were painted with the loveliest shade of pink as he giggled at me. 

“Can I be honest with you?” I sighed, shoving my hands deep within my pockets. 

“Of course,” Jimin nodded happily, pushing his dark blonde hair up and over his forehead. I felt myself breathing heavier with his motion, quickly shaking my head to rid myself of any thoughts that weren’t pertaining to what we were speaking about. 

“This…is my first date,” I stuttered, looking anywhere but at his adorable face. 

Jimin looked at me for a moment, furrowing his brows before placing a light hand on my shoulder. I thought for a moment it was a comforting touch, before he erupted into a fit of giggles. 

“Yaaah, I thought you said I could be honest with you,” I whined, stomping my foot. 

“Sorry,” he said, trying to halt his laughter. “But it’s amazing to me. How can someone…who looks and speaks as you do…not have ever gone on a date with someone?”

“Aish, I think you misunderstood…” I grumbled, kicking at imaginary dirt in front of me. “This is my first…gay date.”

Jimin gave me a curious look, tilting his head to the side. “Gay date?”

“My first…” I whispered. “Date with a man…”

“Yah, stop being silly,” Jimin laughed, punching me lightly in the shoulder. “Let’s go, we’re going to be late for the movie…

…your first “gay” movie.”

“I’m never telling you anything ever again,” I grumbled. Jimin took my hand in his and smiled brightly. 

“Yes you will.”
