he’s not that man...

Because I need Emma to believe, in her heart, that Killian would never leave her…and I need her to fight to get him back.


There’s not enough vodka in the world to warm the ice running through her veins, but she’d gone along, let herself try to seek some comfort from her mother and Regina. It hadn’t worked. She knew it wouldn’t, but the walls of her big empty house were closing in on her with every breath she took and she’d just needed to get out. The bar had felt infinitely worse, full of concerned looks and shady bartenders, making her feel itchy in her own skin. 

She should have just come here sooner. With each step she’s taken closer to the water she’s felt her own intuition grow stronger, more sure that something just isn’t right. Snow had told her that the Jolly Roger was still here, but seeing it now, empty and quiet, the holes her vulnerability had ripped into her heart suddenly feel smaller. Not mended, but less penetrable. 

He wouldn’t leave. Not her. Not his ship. Not Storybrooke without saying a word. He loves her. He loves her so much that he was willing to rip out his own memories before hurting her, a misguided act to be sure, but brought out by the depth of a love defined as true. Not just by the Gods or whatever it is that deems love as true, but by the totality of everything that they have been through. They’ve fought for every moment they’ve had together and she knows he wouldn’t just walk away from this latest battle.

Something is wrong. So wrong that she wants to scream at herself for wasting an entire day thinking she’d been abandoned, letting herself fall back into a past life where the man she loves would hurt her with such a cowardly act. Killian is not that man. Not now, not ever. He makes mistakes, sure, but he would never abandon her. Immediately, she feels guilt surround her like a storm cloud, at her own thoughts, her own unwillingness to fight. 

Digging her fingers into her coat pocket she pulls out Liam’s ring by the chain it’s thread through, the red stone catching the light overhead as she rolls it between her gloved fingertips. That feeling she’d had at home when she found it, when she’d first realized Killian had left it behind, it hits her with a renewed force. He gave her that ring in hopes of saving her soul, believing it could somehow keep her safe from the darkness. He’d asked her to come back to him.

She’s going to use it now to bring him back home.

Regina picks up her call on the second ring, but Emma doesn’t event waste a second on niceties.

“Regina, we need to do a locator spell. Now. Meet me at the docks.” 

Sirin and Alkonost - bird-maidens of ancient legends and tales.

They are mentioned in the Russian chronicles, and the images of the thumbnails have been preserved in ancient manuscripts, in the jewellery of Kievan Rus (a loose federation of East Slavic tribes in Europe from the late 9th to the mid-13th century, under the reign of the Rurik dynasty. Today it’s known as the First eastern Slavic state.) and in the thread of white stone cathedrals from Kiev to Vladimir-Suzdal.

reminiscence . lukas

redmessenger:

“Old habits die hard, milady,” Lukas replies. “As for me… Clive is working me to the bone, but he’s gracious enough to give me some leisure time to myself. He misses you terribly, though I doubt that’s much of a surprise. Not a day passes that I don’t hear him speak of you.” He gives Mathilda a knowing smile and a quick wink. “I’m sure he would love to have you in his arms again.”

his honesty earns another laugh, and she’s glad to see that he remains forthright with her as ever. ❝ well, the knights need someone like you. perhaps if more people were sensible, you wouldn’t be in such high demand. ❞ it’s said lightly, but really only in half-jest. clive often remarks that lukas was worth three other men, but she does feel somewhat sorry that he is so overly taxed. maybe she should talk to clive about giving him better compensation for all his efforts. now that they’re no longer a liberation army based in a famine-stricken country, there’s no need to be so frugal with their spending.

as his words turn to clive, however, she only chuckles fondly, and a keen eye might spot the faintest touch of rose to the high curve of her cheekbones. ❝ i’m sure he would, and i him. it does me ill to be separated from him for so long, but there’s always work to be done. ❞ she sighs, but when she turns back to lukas, the wistfulness has gone from her voice and her look, replaced with playfulness. ❝ worked to the bone and subject to my husband’s laments? i pity you, lukas, but i suppose it’s your own fault for being the most tolerant of us even in the deliverance. ❞

Last Resort {The Great Stone Dragon}

Mark this down ladies and gentlemen, this is the second time that Celia will have made quite possibly the stupidest decision in her life. Ironically, both of these decisions boiling down to finding a creepy sorcerer lurking in the shadows.

It seemed like Celia had a knack for it though, a real hidden talent for finding people simply based on a rumor. The sorcerer who lived in the woods back home? Yeah, that hadn’t taken her all that long to find. A quick google search and she was on her merry way.

Boy did that excursion turn out to be a nightmare.

Enter Celia now, still riding down the spiral that she had managed to get herself on at full force with no way of stopping. She needed help, and the one person she had always turned to before probably never wanted to see her or want anything to do with her again so she needed a second option. 

That would be one Melaenis Ficente. Or Mel, as Celia had come to know her in Harry Potter Land.

Obviously she had known the girl to be quite the powerful wizard in the dream considering she had helped her out herself and had also heard the nasty rumors spread by some of their other classmates. Celia wondered if that held true in the “real world”, and if she could potentially be of any help again. All it took really was a simple whisper of the name in a crowded room, and everyone began to buzz about the creepy lady who lived in the woods. 

Without hesitation then, Celia set forth. Armed with absolutely nothing but the sunglasses perched against her face as she made her way up to the house, taking a deep breath and knocking on the door. “H-hello? Is, um, is anyone in there?”

What could possibly go wrong?

The Crystal Fence:

This is something that helps ward off negative energies and unwanted attention, but as a preventative measure. The Crystal Fence is something put into play, typically when a person has just moved into a place of residence, and after the area has been cleansed. Some cases, the area is fine as is, and the Crystal Fence can be placed without need to cleanse the air or land. This is a judgment call, but if you are unsure, best to do a cleansing to be on the safe side.

This fence is made by the use of quartz crystals, but you may use another crystal if you prefer. How this is done, is before you settle in for your first night, as often that is when energies will start to hone in on where you are, you get yourself 4 or 5 quartz crystals, and bring them into a safe space to program them. Before you instill your rules and energy into these stones, make certain you are not making your fence something that will ward off helpful land spirits that may already live there, or other types of beings that also may already live there. This is disrespectful, and may cause problems later on.

The Procedure:

  • Four crystals is all that is needed for the fence itself, but the fifth is sort of a heart of the network. The four make up the fence itself, the fifth is sort of the charging base of the network you will be creating. The fifth, as I stated, is optional.

  • In the safe space you create, take your time with the stones each, instructing them of exactly what it is you want them to do. Tell them that they are to hold the intention and energy you give them, and they will form a network connecting to one another. Take the time to make certain the stones are each radiating with the proper energy, and give them the rules of the Fence. This will vary on your individual desires, but generally it is used to ward off unwanted energies and presences, so stating what energies are allowed, versus which ones it is to deter is the most effective approach. Example: “Crystals selected for this purpose, you are hereby tasked with forging an energetic barrier around this dwelling. None may pass this border that seek to cause harm, to misguide, to cause misfortune and trouble, or to create a negative space within these borders. Energies allowed to pass through these borders are those who are benevolent, Earth Tender Spirits that have no ill intent, and any that come with my highest good at heart, or who are seeking guidance but have no hidden ulterior motives. Higher vibrational energies may cross this border, if their energy is that of calm, neutral, harmless, and helpful. Lower vibrational energies will not register this place, and will thus remain unaware of its existence, as this fence will mask it from them. This fence refuses all who stand opposed to the ideals held by its borders. Any who breach this line will feel utterly uncomfortable in this space, and turn back immediately to be rid of the uncomfortable sensations caused by this fence.” This can be tailored to your needs/wants, this is an example of how I set these up.

  • Once the stones have been programmed and charged, take the four border stones and bury them at the four edges of your property line. If you so wish it, you may have them above ground in some sort of special place of your making for safe-keeping, but make certain it is not something insulated or artificial that may block its energy flow, or cut it off from the charges of the Earth’s surface. Conductive, natural materials are best. It is also best to keep them close to the ground.

  • The fifth stone, should you choose to use the five, will be placed in the heart of your home, or as close to it as you can get it. This can be in a decorative manner, but make certain it will not be disturbed by any animals or visitors to your home. Only you should handle the stones of your fence, unless you made this border with another person as well, in which case all involved may do so. This stone, once placed, is where you will do the final stage of the process. Link the border stones to the central ‘heart’ stone, and tell them they are now active, and all four border stones will be threaded through the central stone. This is your charging stone, and you may charge this how you see fit. Generally, the stones will draw energy from nature to keep powered, but your intention may start to weaken. A sigil with your intent is a good way to recharge the stones, or simply say another blessing over the heart stone, and reaffirm the strength and intention of your borders through it. Once the central stone is charged to your desire, tell it to send the energy through to the four connected border stones. This will recharge the current that runs through them. You will likely know when your walls are weakening and should be recharged.

This is a customizable procedure as well, but however you do this, please remember to make certain you are not doing this in an area already tainted. If you already live somewhere and want this fence in your space as well, clear it out before you set the borders!

If you live in an apartment or somewhere similar that has no yard, you may make the border within your walls. Have the four border stones in as close to the four corners of your apartment’s borders as you can get them. The idea is to seal off the entire place to these unwanted energies or visitors.

NOTE: If you create this border, it may make some people in your life suddenly not want to spend time at your place. If this happens, it means that their energy does not match up with how you’ve programmed your fence. Sometimes this is a good thing, particularly so if you are uncomfortable with said person, or just generally don’t like them. This can happen with family, as I have learned in making these fences. Energies that do not line up with your border’s rules will not like to cross that threshold, and the feeling remains highly uncomfortable for them, even running them off in many cases. They may not understand why they feel that way, but they will appear less and less, or try to get you to go to them. Things that do not resonate often will fall away.

“A Heart’s a Heavy Burden” - Heart Poppet

A poppet for uses concerning your own emotions.

Originally posted by howlsmovingcastle-sweet

Ingredients

A smooth stone or crystal

Red thread

A lock of hair

Small box or pouch

I know pop culture spells have the tendency to be seen as mundane, but this poppet is actually a pretty big responsibility. Binding something to yourself can be as dangerous as it is useful. Precautionary measures are not optional.

Method

  1. Choose your stone. For the purposes of this enchantment, the most important aspect is simply how connected you feel to it. This will not work if you feel nothing towards the poppet. The ritual will strengthen your bond, but there has to be something there to begin with. Ideally, the stone will fit nicely in your palm, be smooth enough to run your fingers over, and have a nice weight without much bulk. If using gemstones or crystals, again, connection is the most important part. A particularly apt choice would be rose quartz.
    1. If you choose a crystal or a metal (and stones to a lesser degree), it is imperative that you do research before continuing to the next steps. Can it be heated? Can it be kept in water? Is it toxic in any situations? Make adaptions to this guide considering the answers. 
  2. Dedicate the stone. Begin on the night of a full moon. Hold the stone up to your heart and speak to it as if it was a spirit. You are, in a sense, creating an entity. Tell it your name, say that it will represent your heart, and you will care for it in return. Press it to your lips and visualize your energy flowing into it. Pierce your left thumb or ring finger and spread a drop of blood on the surface of the stone (with the right thumb, as to not expose the wound). Braid a very small section of hair and cut off two or so inches. Tie this onto the stone with red thread. Place in the box or pouch and charge under the moon.
  3. Bind the stone to yourself. Remove the hair and thread, and keep at least the thread in the container. Wash off the blood. Carry the stone poppet with you whenever possible. I’d recommend wrapping it with wire to be worn as a pendent, close to your heart, or simply kept in a pocket to be touched often. Take a break everyday to actively bond with the poppet, similar to any other crystal or spirit. This wont come naturally to everyone. Begin with meditation, speaking to it (it will feel like your talking to yourself at first), or charging it in any multitude of ways. This is your heart. Be gentle with it. In my experience, it loves warmth (baths especially, as well as being stroked). Sleep with it in a pouch under your pillow, or in a box beside your bed (with the hair and string).
  4. Conclude the ritual. When you feel a spiritual connection begin to build, you know that you have successfully breathed life into the poppet. By the first lunar cycle, if you don’t feel anything, than this stone might just not resonate with you. If you’re unsure, or just want to develop the bond further, repeat the binding process until the next full moon. During first full moon that you feel confident with your poppet, burn the lock of hair you initially used, with dried rose petals and rosemary (both optional). Save the ashes and grind into fine powder. Pierce your finger and smear the blood on the stone, as per dedication, and immediately sprinkle with powder. Place beneath a hearth. This can be as elaborate as a fire (make sure your stone can withstand high temperatures and remove wire if used as pendant) or as simple as a candle. Just put the poppet underneath a flat-bottomed bowl, and light a candle on it’s base. Keep the red string in the container, always. The poppet now has a direct line to your heart. When not in use, keep it in the box/pouch. To sever the connection, burn the thread and bury the stone for a lunar cycle. If you loose the stone, you can invite the poppet into another vessel and repeat the ritual, but burn the string. This represents your connection to the vessel… but there are almost always lingering attachments. Should someone find your heart, they could very well influence you. Be careful.

Now that our favorite Doctor is back in action, we couldn’t resist putting together a list of books featuring time travel. If you fancy a trip through time, try one of these titles.

There are many ways to customize the fine body jewelry that you wear, when you add some INDUSTRIAL STRENGTH Titanium Threaded Orbits into the mix. Dave from Electric Buddha Tattoo in Kent UK posted this picture of his customer’s 3 year old tri-dustrial, that rocks an all Moonstone-set Titanium Natural Stone Cabochon Gem Threaded Orbit with 3 threads and 3 dangles (TCGOD7). Dave capped the 3 threaded straight posts on those threads with 3x complimentary 4mm Amethyst-set Titanium 3 Prong-set Natural Stone Gem Threaded Ends. If you like what you see, have one of our customers put together some I.S. Threaded Orbits… just for YOU! 😊 https://www.instagram.com/p/BMmnLy1DdV7/

Diverse Series You Need to Read

I’ve been a fan of novel series since I was a child starting with “Cat in the Hat”. I eventually graduated to the Ramona series, then Anne of Green Gables, and V.C. Andrews. I don’t know why, but I just love being with a character, lost in the world an author creates for more than just one book. Reading the YA explosion of series has been heaven, and a whole ton of fun. A few weeks ago I finished Ellen Oh’s masterpiece Prophecy series and thought to myself, “what is the next series I could get into?” Luckily, there is no shortage of YA series with characters of color and/or by authors of color that are being released, so I am one happy camper and thought I’d share just a few of my findings. Excuse my fan-girling for the next few minutes.

I was able to meet Sabaa Tahir (she’s so pretty) and snag an ARC of her debut novel, Ember in the Ashes. OMG! It was delicious. Made getting stuck in a Chicago snowstorm enjoyable. I cannot wait for the next book!

Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir

Laia is a slave. Elias is a soldier. Neither is free.   Under the Martial Empire, defiance is met with death. Those who do not vow their blood and bodies to the Emperor risk the execution of their loved ones and the destruction of all they hold dear.   It is in this brutal world, inspired by ancient Rome, that Laia lives with her grandparents and older brother. The family ekes out an existence in the Empire’s impoverished backstreets. They do not challenge the Empire. They’ve seen what happens to those who do.   But when Laia’s brother is arrested for treason, Laia is forced to make a decision. In exchange for help from rebels who promise to rescue her brother, she will risk her life to spy for them from within the Empire’s greatest military academy.   There, Laia meets Elias, the school’s finest soldier—and secretly, its most unwilling. Elias wants only to be free of the tyranny he’s being trained to enforce. He and Laia will soon realize that their destinies are intertwined—and that their choices will change the fate of the Empire itself.


If you haven’t read Susan Ee’s Angelfall series, start now! The last book of the series comes out next week.

Angelfall by Susan Ee

It’s been six weeks since the angels of the apocalypse destroyed the world as we know it. Only pockets of humanity remain. Savage street gangs rule the day while fear and superstition rule the night. When angels fly away with a helpless girl, her seventeen-year-old sister Penryn will do anything to get her back…


I’m also a fan of re-tellings, so I was looking forward to Danielle Paige’s Dorothy Must Die series, and she didn’t disappoint. The first book so much fun filled with all sorts of intrigue. The second book just came out, and while I haven’t had a chance to read it yet, I expect it will be just as exciting as the first one.

Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige

I didn’t ask for any of this. I didn’t ask to be some kind of hero. But when your whole life gets swept up by a tornado - taking you with it - you have no choice but to go along, you know? Sure, I’ve read the books. I’ve seen the movies. I know the song about the rainbow and the happy little bluebirds. But I never expected Oz to look like this. To be a place where Good Witches can’t be trusted, Wicked Witches may just be the good guys, and winged monkeys can be executed for acts of rebellion. There’s still a yellow brick road - but even that’s crumbling. What happened? Dorothy. They say she found a way to come back to Oz. They say she seized power and the power went to her head. And now no one is safe. My name is Amy Gumm - and I’m the other girl from Kansas. I’ve been recruited by the Revolutionary Order of the Wicked. I’ve been trained to fight. And I have a mission.

Those are the series I have started, but here are some series that are part of the ever-growing stack of “to be read” books that is slowly taking over my living room.

Gates of Thread & Stone by Lori M. Lee

In the Labyrinth, we had a saying: keep silent, keep still, keep safe. In a city of walls and secrets, where only one man is supposed to possess magic, seventeen-year-old Kai struggles to keep hidden her own secret—she can manipulate the threads of time. When Kai was eight, she was found by Reev on the riverbank, and her “brother” has taken care of her ever since. Kai doesn’t know where her ability comes from—or where she came from. All that matters is that she and Reev stay together, and maybe one day move out of the freight container they call home, away from the metal walls of the Labyrinth. Kai’s only friend is Avan, the shopkeeper’s son with the scandalous reputation that both frightens and intrigues her. Then Reev disappears. When keeping silent and safe means losing him forever, Kai vows to do whatever it takes to find him. She will leave the only home she’s ever known and risk getting caught up in a revolution centuries in the making. But to save Reev, Kai must unravel the threads of her past and face shocking truths about her brother, her friendship with Avan, and her unique power.

Talon by Julie Kagawa

Long ago, dragons were hunted to near extinction by the Order of St. George, a legendary society of dragon slayers. Hiding in human form and growing their numbers in secret, the dragons of Talon have become strong and cunning, and they’re positioned to take over the world with humans none the wiser. Ember and Dante Hill are the only sister and brother known to dragonkind. Trained to infiltrate society, Ember wants to live the teen experience and enjoy a summer of freedom before taking her destined place in Talon. But destiny is a matter of perspective, and a rogue dragon will soon challenge everything Ember has been taught. As Ember struggles to accept her future, she and her brother are hunted by the Order of St. George. Soldier Garret Xavier Sebastian has a mission to seek and destroy all dragons, and Talon’s newest recruits in particular. But he cannot kill unless he is certain he has found his prey: and nothing is certain about Ember Hill. Faced with Ember’s bravery, confidence and all-too-human desires, Garret begins to question everything that the Order has ingrained in him: and what he might be willing to give up to find the truth about dragons.

Prove Me Wrong

Viktor/Yuuri soulmate AU, part ¼. The one where Yuuri has know for ages that Viktor is his soulmate, but is still pretty much the last one to know that Viktor is in love with him. This part SFW.

Thanks, @tchy.




Viktor Nikiforov’s long hair is lifted from his neck, knotted delicately and pinned with gold thread; with glittering stones that seem to reflect the golden blades of his skates. He is both masculine and feminine, or perhaps neither. His head is bowed in concentration, and his breaths are deep and even, steady, steadying.

This is his debut, graduating from the junior division. Yuuri, with his hands wrapped around his knees, is watching it on the big old TV in the public lounge of Yu-topia, because then if his parents hear the quiet noise of it they should think that a guest is responsible. It’s one in the morning, and tomorrow he will sleep through history and be kept behind after class.

A quarter of a world away, Viktor’s coach lifts his jacket from his shoulders as Viktor stoops to remove the guards from his blades, away from his neck, the low dip of his costume revealing the fine line of his neck, the edges of his shoulderblades, a fine dip pulling the eye further down along his spine—

And Yuuri sees it.

Yuuri is meant to see it. Yuuri, specifically, of everyone in the world, is meant to see it.
