Summary: In which you’re sure you’ll hate Park Jimin with every fiber of your being for the rest of your existence, even after he is assigned your tutor for History of Magic.
Pairing: Jimin | Reader
Genre: Fluff/Smut; Harry Potter AU 
Word Count: 17,321
Author’s Note: This got insanely long, and I apologize but also not really. Inspired by @jeonbegins + her really dope HP Slytherin Jimin AU edit. I also had a little conversation with @minsvga about this and she helped me figured out the basic idea for what this story has become; and @chokemejimin has asked to be tagged in my HP work so here you go my dear!!!

.

No matter how hard you try, it seems as if you are always bested by Park Jimin in every aspect of life: from Quidditch to school to class popularity.

And you absolutely despise him for it.

Granted, it’s probably because he’s always simply excelled in everything while you could only manage the minimum requirement for things outside of the sport you’ve grown to be so passionate about—but that’s only deepened your dislike for the boy. It’s been like this since the pair of you were children, a rivalry already planted between you even before you knew what the term meant. Truthfully, it was pretty much written in the stars that you would develop some deep-rooted grudge against Jimin, for he was organized into Slytherin while you were put in the fiery red and gold of Gryffindor.

Beyond the clashing Houses that have officially formed your backgrounds, it doesn’t help that the boy has seemed to uphold a particular interest in doing whatever he could to see you fidget or watch you squirm or just catch you at your worst moments—although you humor yourself on the idea that these unfortunate incidents occur to you because of Park Jimin’s constant hovering. It’s a habit that’s grown since the first week of your admission into Hogwarts, in which your big mouth scored you your first detention with the infamous Professor Snape.

It’s a moment that marks the beginning of an unspoken battle between the pair of you—in which you would constantly attempt to prove yourself better than Park Jimin and Park Jimin doing everything he could to make sure you could never have that victory. During the first two years of school, this would mean beating you on every exam, knowing the answers to every question and teasing you for not knowing. Professors putting Jimin on a pedestal, marking him up as the ‘ideal student’ and unknowingly intensifying the dagger of hatred you wished to plunge deeper and deeper into his chest.

When you are twelve, you are told that there is certainly no way for you to truly despise of something (or someone)—for you are young and naive and not entirely capable to understand what it means to hate something with every fiber of your being.

But they’re wrong.

Hey sorry do you know any ‘being a couple for a case’ fic ? Thank you'

I CERTAINLY DO. It’s one of my favourite tropes of ALL TIME. Like, I reread these fics ALL THE TIME. I am just SO SAD that there’s no long-fic really strictly from Sherlock’s POV. Like I would LOVE for a fic where we see Sherlock’s thought processes about trying to get John to be his date / partner / whatever. 

FAKE RELATIONSHIP 

ANYWAY. I added a few onto this list here, but here’s a full list of the ones in my bookmarks.

  • I can’t pretend by Salambo06 (E | 7,692 w.) - They had arrived more than a hour ago, and the moment they had walked inside the hotel reception, John had understood why Sherlock hadn’t wanted to come. Two men, posh suits and expensive watches on their wrists, had come to greet them with sharp remarks and badly hidden mockery, and John had seen red. Sherlock hadn’t said anything, mostly ignoring the two men entirely, and without thinking twice about it, John had slid an arm around Sherlock’s waist and introduced himself as his husband. [[AHHH so much pining John, I love it. Sherlock is so good to him!!]]

Slowly, John discovers that he loves Sherlock not only in a friendly, brotherly way, but both men have to fight their own demons before they can think of taking their relationship to a new level… [[I love this fic. It’s a really great long-fic!]]
  • A Bit of Indulgence by beltainefaerie (NR | 3,364 w.) -  A case leads John and Sherlock to fake being boyfriends and John runs into an old acquaintance. [[This one is so domestic and cute GUH I love it.]]
  • The Norwood Love Builders by flawedamythyst (T | 47,798 w.) - Sherlock and John go undercover to solve the murder of Joanna Oldacre, but things are complicated by the many feelings John has been repressing in the wake of Sherlock’s faked death and return.

  • Hitting the Water at Sixty Miles an Hour by what_alchemy (E | 30,568 w.) “You love your mother, Sherlock?”John watched the muscles in Sherlock’s jaw jump.

  • A Silver Sixpence by doodle (E | 16,400 w. LIVEJOURNAL) - John and Sherlock have to get married for a case, and learn some things about each other. I LOVE LOVE LOVE this story, though its only fault is that it’s on LiveJournal… (PITA to read on mobile)

AMNESIA:

Here are a couple where either John or Sherlock have amnesia and they think that they are each other’s husband or partner.

  • Among the Secret Things by Kate_Lear (E | 26,073 w.) - Sherlock would be the last person to describe himself as given to flights of fancy, but at the look on Lestrade’s face he could swear that something inside him curls up and dies. Part 1 of Among the Secret Things
  • What Meets the Eye by worldaccordingtofangirls (M | 8,251 w.) Amnesia is just another case to solve. Piece together unfamiliar faces, reconstruct the old identity, the lost reality. A challenge that Sherlock could even enjoy. He can read people like books. The man with the silver hair is his boss. The tottering old woman, his landlady. The girl with the worried look in her eyes…infatuated. And as for John Watson? His husband. Obviously.

“FOR A CASE” TROPE

So these aren’t necessarily relationships, or weren’t tagged as such, but contains some other “for a case” fics!

  • Midnight Blue Serenity by BeautifulFiction (E | 151,907w.) - When Sherlock infiltrates a club in order to track down a serial killer, his altered appearance is enough to make John question his assumption that Sherlock is beyond his reach. However, is he the only one who appreciates his flatmate’s charms, or is Sherlock at risk of becoming the next victim? [[THIS IS ONE OF MY FAVE FICS OF ALL TIME. tw for gore-ish type things near the end.]]
  • It Isn’t Strange Until You Think About It by ivyblossom (T | 4,596 w.) - John tells the truth about how it happened. For some reason, “it’s for a case” always seems to do the trick.
  • The Case of the Vanishing Pants by SwissMiss (E | 44,025 w.) - Five times John and Sherlock lost their pants for a case. [[there are some angsty bits in this, but I did giggle at a few scenes]]

OTHER SORT-OF RELATED FICS:

Here are a few that aren’t REALLY “for a case” but they end up together or the Johnlock is strong in it because of cases or because of situations.

  • Rescue by missilemuse (T | 2,574 w.) - If this was the way Sherlock Holmes loved, it was no wonder why he had avoided the damned emotion for over half of his life. Part 6 of Reichenbach To Return [[this isn’t really Johnlock, but it is… it’s non-ad10ck ad10ck. You have to read it to understand. It’s SO good and painful, trust me. Sherlock!Whump and pining]].
  • Five Times John Noticed But Didn’t Really by ScandalousMinds (T| 6,383 w.) 5 times John (thought) he noticed something peculiar about his and Sherlock’s relationship but really missed the obvious.
  • A Need To Know Basis by mattsloved1 (K+| 964 w., FFNet) - As the cab door shut firmly, the DI had yelled out they were to make an appearance at Scotland Yard the next day. It was while John watched London pass by that it happened. (short and sweet!! I love it!!)
  • Hallowed Eve by EventHorizon (T | 14,750 w.) - It probably wasn’t the smartest idea to let Sherlock choose the costumes for Halloween, but John never considered himself the smartest man in the room, anyway. (It’s a couple’s costume thing!)
  • Equine Arse Anonymity by Kayjaykayme (E | 3,834 w.) - Sherlock needs to speak with suspects at a fancy dress ball. He chooses a couple’s costume for himself and John. It is logical, practical and well thought out. John doesn’t agree and exacts sweet revenge.
  • Maybe This Christmas by feverishsea for leopardwrites (T | 6,021 w.) Anthea has given up her life, her own desires, even her name in service of something greater than herself. But that doesn’t mean she can’t see when someone else wants something – even if she doesn’t happen to care overmuch for that person. And it doesn’t mean she isn’t willing to help. (Anthea gets the boys together)
  • You Can Imagine the Christmas Dinners by ardenteurophile  (T | 23,584 w.) Sherlock takes John along for Christmas dinner with Mycroft and Mummy (And “Anthea”, too). Over the course of the evening, John realises that everyone in the room - apart from him - seems to think that he and Sherlock are a couple. Part 2 of Xmas Dinners Verse (I LOVE THIS ONE)
  • The Sexual Awakening of Sherlock Holmes and Dr. John Watson by suitesamba (M | 24,579 w.) Sherlock owes Mycroft a favor. Mycroft calls in that favor by offering Sherlock’s consulting services in a charity auction. Sherlock and John soon find themselves at the country manor of Mrs. Ives-Patton Smarmington III - not very coincidentally a long-time friend of Sherlock’s mother - where they are reluctant participants in her Murder Mystery Weekend. It’s a play within a play for Sherlock and John, and their roles for the weekend event bleed over into their real lives, waking the sleeping dragons within. Or In which John learns that Sherlock owing Mycroft a favor is very suspect, and Sherlock has a very bad idea.

Hope those satisfy! Alex also has a list that has some ACD Holmes on the list too!

Weird/Fun Places for Sigils✨

Sigils are so much fun, man, and there are thousands of uses and places to put them. Personally, I’m a big fan of ones that are a bit more hidden, just because it gets tiring to have to explain to everyone what it is, and sometimes they relate to personal things. 

Here are some suggestions for places to put sigils and their possible meanings!

  1. Under your study/work desk to enhance motivation and to promote calmness
  2. On your keychain! Use the little name tags that you always seem to randomly have, and charge it to protect your home when you use the keys on the keychain :)
  3. Makeup bottles/containers, to help with glamours and self-confidence
  4. Nametags–some dorms have nametags on the doors. Try writing a protection sigil on the backside of it, so whoever enters your room means you no harm (and so you don’t get robbed, which has been happening a lot in my dorm lmao yikes)
  5. Textbooks! Sigils for letting everything you read fully sink into your brain!
  6. Notebooks, either for school or for other things! For when you’re reviewing for a test, or to make sure that your notes are organized and easy to understand.
  7. On your water bottle
  8. SNAPCHAT YOUR SIGILS!! I know this isn’t necessarily a place, but snapchatting to your coven/friends is an easy and efficient way of getting sigils to them fast. Screenshotting them is a possible way to charge them, too.
  9. If you’re feeling particularly crafty, some mechanical pencils have enough space that you can slip a piece of paper into them! Create your sigil, slip it into your pencil, and charge it or feel its effects as you write
  10. Another crafty place, if you’re so inclined, is the inside of your jackets/sweaters. You can sew a sigil into the inner layer of your jacket, hidden from view but still on your person :)
  11. More sewing! If you’re feeling EVEN MORE adventurous and artsy, make a quilt/blanket and imbue it with peaceful sigils
  12. Under your cups/on drink coasters (Like how Rylee does with this tea recipe)
  13. Backpaaaacks. To help make sure you never forget an assignment or lose anything
  14. Slip a sigil into your pillowcase for good dreams and fitful sleep, or even under your roommate’s bed to try to encourage them to have a restful sleep so they don’t wake you up (can you tell I’m a bit bitter)
  15. You can put them behind posters, too, for when you want a sigil to affect the room but don’t want people to keep asking questions about it.
  16. On your medication bottles, or those little weekly planning things for your medicine, so you don’t forget to take them and remember to refill them before you run out!
  17. On the corners of flashcards, to help you remember what you’re studying
  18. In the front of your book of shadows! To keep away nosy people, to ensure your spells/rituals will retain their powers when redone, or to help you remember what that darn shorthand you used means
  19. When I’m feeling nervous on the bus or any other public place, I draw out sigils just with my finger on any surface, focusing on not letting anyone bother me or get too close
  20. In the glove compartment of your car!
  21. On your laptop, so it may never crash and have you lose hours’ worth of work :’)))

I could honestly go on and on, and there would still be things I’m forgetting. Feel free to add more ideas!! It’s always so fun seeing where people put their sigils :)

anonymous asked:

i've been wondering a lot about hoseok and his dance background lately. do you know when he started dancing, what style he started with and which style of dance he has most experience with? also what dance style would you classify boy meets evil as? (sidenote: dance style of lie?) i'm bombarding you bc i know you have some experience in dancing haha sorry 1/ ~F

Also, I often see people saying that hoseok’s only good at street dance/popping and isn’t a versatile dancer (often when they compare him to jimin) but im just???? Yeah it’s true that hoseok hasn’t shown as wide a range of styles as jimin has but that doesn’t mean he’s not a versatile dancer??? 2/ ~F

Sometimes (esp during group dances), he doesn’t show his full potential; however, you can’t say that it’s his limit because he’s not /trying/ to outshine the others. Similar to that, if he isn’t showing you the whole range of dances he can perform, how can you say he’s bad? (I feel like this analogy is confusing. Feel free to ignore rip) Also, were these people sleeping during the spring day choreo or… ???? 3/ ~F

ANON you will not believe the noise i just made when i saw these messages in my inbox !!!!! i’d love to answer your questions fpasdlgh. just a heads up that this is gonna be long; i’m sorry, i talk a lot and don’t know when to shut up & also like listening to my own (metaphorical) voice too much sometimes

1. hoseok’s been dancing since freshman (?) year of high school and started out with street (x) while this is a considered a short time for professional dancers, i’m only exposed to classical art forms, so i’m unsure how that factors into this style (´~`ヾ) and yes, that means this is the base of his technique !

2. i would classify BME as 100% hip hop/street. although they can be seen as widely different genres, it’s a popular style that’s taken off these past few years in the dance community. it’s got street elements in it, but it’s more controlled, more polished. (also: yeah idk what “lie” is………..urban lyrical pseudo contemporary with modern influences?????????? lmao at this point hip hop has grown so much i’d just call it that)

3. fam i’m in the same boat as you! hoseok is a very versatile dancer :o he can adapt to many different styles, given that they’re not asking him to start doing fouettes or something.

  • his main style
  • a subgenre of street called “bounce” although they are both “street”, each subgenre is really different from each other & it’s not easy to pick one up. here, you can see the difference between hoseok and jimin during practice. hoseok goes deeper, lower, lighter, smoother, etc. his arms come up to near his chin when he lunges to the front & there’s no part of the combo where he’s simply arrived @ a position and then stays there; he’s always moving, always milking every step, always engaged 
  • butterfly here, his musically is really strong bc he utilizes every part of his body in order to fill up the counts. you can really see the movement going thru every single muscle: the way his chest caves in, the shoulders, the hands, his head, the fluidity of his arms. as a dancer, you want every single action to be deliberate. you need control of even your fingers in order to constantly extend energy outwards, and hoseok takes that into account
  • arirang medley
  • perfect man (aka my life) is killer bc of the required speed/stamina; there is no break in this piece. if you get off you can’t get back in lmao and you can clearly see some members struggling with to stay on time with the footwork
  • am i wrong
  • spring day i 100% agree with what you’re saying about this piece !!!! there is so much going on here, and after watching all the individual fancams i wanna say that both he and jimin are the ones who shine the most consistently thru the entire dance.

    the slide to the ground? hoseok jumps the highest, gets the most airtime. the roll up from the floor? he really pushes himself and utilizes his back flexibility & holds his core in order to make sure that his head is the last thing that comes up. i was pleasantly surprised to see him tackle this choreography, esp the move i just mentioned, just to see how he’d do. he really pushed himself with this piece, and i’m glad he got the chance to grow as a dancer; probably with help from jimin, as this is more his department.

    the only qualm i have with him is during the wedge part where their left legs are going in & out, he needs to start pulling his left side over more …… he’s no longer square by like? the second step out n his ribs are reallllly swinging open fpfahdgt it’s kinda bothering me lol CLOSE UR RIBCAGE HOSEOK !!!!! i know u can do it

despite all of these pieces being different styles, you can tell that hoseok constantly strives to take the extra step above & beyond. he’s always looking for places where he can add Something More to the piece, even when it’s not given explicitly in the choreography. he gives it his All in hype dances, and that’s what made him stand out to me from the rest.

4. yes yes yes yes yes,,,, thank you for pointing that out! some people shit on hoseok’s dance king title because he doesn’t seem to stick out during groupwork and i’m here to tell you that 1) that’s utter bullshit lmao go ahead and watch all the solo fancams i assure you that he is Up There (debatable for certain dances, but he holds top 1 for fire & bst, no question) and 2) he might not go full out bc he’s dancing in a group.

what some fans forget is that he is part of a group, and the whole point when you’re part of a group is that you “take one for the team” and don’t treat it like a solo; you’re not supposed to stick out. even dance line 2.0 (namjin) don’t draw negative attention bc they bust their asses in order to keep up with the rest of the group !!!!!! BECAUSE YOU’RE NOT SUPPOSED TO STICK OUT !!!!!

the whole point is that ur a cohesive unit doing one thing !!!!!!!!!!! you’re supposed to look the same !!!!!!! like…………if you’re really on balance during a performance, you’re not going to do six pirouettes. you finish the double like the rest of the corps, and you book it to your next step. groups thrive in unity, and if you can’t even give that up in order to get your limelight, then i’m sorry: you don’t deserve a solo.

this is why professionals always start out in the corps to prove that they can work well with others, handle the roles given to them, dance as a collective, and then use their work ethic/diligence to stand out during classes & rehearsals to show the artistic director that they’re ready to be promoted to a higher ranking. you demonstrate that you can handle a group environment before anything else 

hoseok doesn’t outshine the others because that’s not his job, and that is not what he is there to do. he is purposefully coexisting with the group in order to make the dance look & feel cleaner

5. kinda going off the fourth point: i agree, once again. he still showcases that he’s pushing himself, but not to the point where he purposely outshines the others. the discipline that comes with purposeful restraint is often overlooked, and i would never slander a dancer for doing so. if i know how far someone’s able to go, i can also appreciate how far they reign themselves in.

ofc, there’s the rare moment when hoseok Really lets loose like the iconic extended choreo for fire during MAMA 16 and you can see how much farther/harder/faster/stronger/full out he’s going compared to the rest of the group. there was a comment that remarked how he made the rest of bts look like his backup dancers, and i can’t agree more. lol i ain’t even biased, just watch from 4:43 onward.

when he jumps, he jumps higher than the others. when he turns his knees in, his feet are spread farther apart than the rest of the members, even though the choreo is fast and the wider your stance is, the slower you’re able to move. he makes every step clear. it’s precise, it’s sharp. his arms move quick, but they hit every position. there is no perceived rush that comes with not knowing what’s coming next or being late

the usage of his head, the ability to go move so fast but still remain fluid (rolling through his chest, loose shoulders, placed arms), jumping farther, traveling more, generally taking up more space than the others w his limbs, making things look incredibly energetic, are all key factors that put him up on another level. yes, someone can move their head, but hoseok moves it further, yes, someone can kick their leg out, but hoseok kicks his further (even so that it’s no longer within his center of balance, and i genuinely fear for him)

not to mention!!! 9 minutes into killer choreography and he is still slaying the facials. his charisma is off the charts, and it’s clear that he’s having so much fun???? he engages the audience with his expressions & isn’t afraid to use it to work the crowd, which is something i’m missing from others bc (as with all dancers) they sometimes get caught up too much with technique instead of performance. also his stage-to-audience connection is Insane. it’s so hard to do it right w/o looking like you’re staring someone down or alienating them, so basically

the ability to keep up/go beyond with fast choreo while also making it engaging thru stage presence is incredibly difficult and is another factor that puts hoseok above the rest of bts in dance

ivegotaheadlineforyou  asked:

Hi Hi! I've been interested in secular witchcraft for a long time, but i'm finally starting to stop just researching, and I want to try and start practicing! I've collected a bunch of resources, but what are some of the first things you'd suggest picking up from the store? Candles, herbs, oils, etc? Also, any beginner posts you could link me to would be wonderful. I'm all ears! Have a wonderful day <3

Hey, congrats on deciding to practice and doing your research! Are you excited? Nervous? Enjoying what you’ve seen so far? Is Tumblr your primary resource? :)

I wanna learn so much from new witches omg. (There’s irony in there.)

Well, it honestly depends on what you wanna do and use yourself. Because personally, I picked up a few of each - I got some tealights from WalMart, bought some cheap incense from somewhere else, picked up some dried herbs from the grocery store that I didn’t already have in the kitchen, and found like five or six crystals I liked from Green Earth. I spent maybe like twenty bucks. That was my beginner’s witch kit.

But, again, it all comes down to what you want to use. Are you more interested in working with candles in magic? Candle magic *is* a really easy but effective method of magic, and candles are everywhere, and really cheap. Most spells use candles in them, not necessarily as the focal point of the spell, but they also do wonders for boosting energies. A bag of 100 tea lights goes a long way in witchcraft. Color correspondences can help, but isn’t necessarily required.

Or maybe crystals are where you wanna go. Crystals have amazing energy, but are a bit more on the pricey side. It can also be hard for people who don’t know a lot about them to tell them apart - the “danger” in this is being swindled by people claiming their crystals are something they’re not. Doesn’t mean they won’t work for their “declared” intent, necessarily, but it means you just dropped a lot of money on something worth a tenth of that. 

That doesn’t mean it isn’t worthwhile to work with them, though. Because they’re an amazing tool, really - you just gotta do some more research, and be confident in where you’re buying from. Finding a reliable dealer with decent prices is where it’s at. But then, once you’ve got some crystals, they’re really versatile. They can be used on their own, or in conjunction with other spells, put them in jars and sachets, or in poppets, make grids, use them to charge other things, just stick like ten of them in your pockets - boom, witchcraft. 

Oils aren’t something I necessarily recommend, to be honest. Not because they aren’t useful, because they are, just like any other tool can be (just gotta know how to use them). I just don’t know a lot about essential oils. xD If that is the area you wanna go in, however, it’s worthwhile to know that you’re gonna want to do some more research on the topic, and be wary of any allergies you may have, and for the love of god don’t put a crapton of pure oil straight on your skin.

Herbs is a little bit of a tricky area too, especially when using them as medicine. It requires a lot of research and safety if you plan on ingesting herbs for actual remedial purposes. If you just want to use dried herbs in, like, jars and spell bags, it isn’t nearly as bad, but you still want to keep an eye out for any poisonous / toxic plants and allergies. The stuff you can get pre-dried from grocery stores and dollar stores are honestly enough in most cases, and there’s lots of substitutes for more expensive or exotic plants, depending on intent.

If you wanna grow your own herbs too, that’s an option, but another area I don’t know a lot about, so I can’t give you any more advice on that besides do some more research. (It seriously never ends, so I hope you like studying.)

I guess this sort of answers your questions, but not really in the way you wanted. So, long story short, what you pick up depends on what and how you want to practice. However, I’ll give you a list of items I would recommend, purely based on my own craft, but I feel they’re pretty good staples to have all around.

  • candles - versatile as all hell; can be used on their own or in any other spell; bags of white tea lights are super cheap and easy to find; worry about colors later; scents can be used as correspondences as well but don’t hinder in any way
    • also, if you can’t have open flames for whatever reason, they have LED / battery powered candles in some dollar stores now; not to mention, tech magic?!
  • matches - they smell nice, and can light candles; suuuper cheap, but in bulk; unless you’re allergic to sulphur, then just a lighter will work
  • herbs - dried herbs from the grocery store seriously do the trick just as well as fresh / organic stuff; Bulk Barn / Barrel has a lot of awesome stuff for super cheap too; start off with just a few general / all-purpose ones, and then add to your collection as you go along; it starts to build up over time, trust me
    • sea salt - cleansing and protection; can be used as a base for most herbal mixtures
    • rosemary - considered a substitute for most other herbs
    • basil - has like a shit ton of correspondences
    • cinnamon is useful to have too
    • if you wanna curse, pepper flakes, paprika, or cayanne pepper should do the trick
  • jars - do I even need to explain?; dollar store, man; even thrift stores have some pretty amazing and cool looking bottles and stuff
  • notebooks - not something necessarily overly witchy, but more so to write down what you learn; trust me, you’ll wanna do that, especially with correspondences; also, sigils
    • also, though, keeping a blog can be a great way to have a magical book; can be password detected / kept secret; tags are useful for organiazation; and then you have us assholes in the community to hang out with too xD
    • writing utensils are also kinda required to, you know, write in books; black Sharpies are useful for actually drawing on stuff - candles, sachets, etc.; good for sigil work
  • scrap fabric - but some cool patterns from thrift stores or whatever; useful for making sachets and poppets
    • sealable plastic bags can do in a pinch though, really; also can be drawn on with Sharpie for easy sigil application
  • string / thread - tie up bags, herb bundles; make sachets and poppets; also useful for bindings, and that’s a good skill to know
  • mini sewing kit - super useful to have in general, and all parts of it can be used for something, somewhere
  • tea bags - seriously, tea has magical properties too; super discreet; and easy as hell; play around with different flavors for intents
  • crystals - clear quartz is super cheap and all-purpose; buy like five of them and just use them over and over; again, another thing it might be useful to have like three or four basic ones and then build your collection over time; that’s how most of us get our arsenal of supplies
    • clear quartz - substitutes for any other crystal
    • amethyst - super cheap and easy to find; variant of quartz; good for sleep and peace and divination; also purple
    • tiger’s eye - I’m biased because this is my favorite crystal; good for protection and courage; did I mention it’s awesome to look at?
  • incense - not necessarily required, but I like to have it; smells nice, useful; so many scents; can be found pretty cheap all over too
    • again, if you can’t have open flames in your place, you can try those wax melters; definitely pricier, but versatile for magic as well; and I mean, they just smell, so, good; my mom has one with like sugar cookie wax cubes; and I come home and think she’s baking, and I get super excited; but it’s a lie

So, yeah, that’s my list, and reasons for what I wrote. That’s just some ideas to get you started. If you choose a path that doesn’t need those things in them, obviously don’t bother then. And depending on what “type of magic” you wanna do, your basic supply list might be very different. For instance, a sea witch probably won’t care so much about kitchen herbs, and stock up on sand and seaweed, sea shells and salt water. 

Since you asked for beginner’s posts, too, you can have my whole list:

I did it! I made a post that wasn’t mostly links! :o Anyway, sorry for my smartass mouth, I was having fun with this. I hope you enjoyed reading, and I hope it gave you some ideas, and helped you out! Good luck! And if you need any more clarification or have more questions, you know where to find me. :D

Dating Wade Wilson Would Include

AN: This is going to be a bit more perverse than the other Would Includes because, hey, it’s Wade.


  • Being very confused when he starts talking to no-one and looking elsewhere tells the audience about how awesome and badass he is
    • You will get used to it, you have no other choice really
    • Sometimes you will also jokingly throw in something you want him to narrate (like how amazing you think he is or something that makes you seem wonderful)
      • This will always, without fail, result in Wade turning back to no-one the audience so he can gush about how wonderful you are

Semblances have more than one trait...

Edit: to put commas and have stuff make more sense…

I feel like this has been confirmed in the most recent season. But there is still a bunch of people having arguments about it so Imma put my 2 cents. YES a semblances is one thing. You can only have one semblance… but like a bunch of shit it can come with side effects. Just like you have a cold… You got runny nose a fever and then some. Now I need to go back and look at the other characters that have shown semblances to see what their side effect is but this is what I have for now….  Let me get into it.

RUBY: Can burst into rose petals and move faster than most. The side affect is her being able to use her speed without bursting into rose petals. But when she does ((become rose petals)) that is the true form of her semblance and when she is fastest.

WEISS/WINTER: The glyphs. Their main glyphs give them speed when the glyphs interact with dust the properties change. Their summoning glyph is Their main semblance and what their other glyphs work up too. 

YANG: Without activating her semblance, it lets her take the hits and she can start dealing them back with more force. When it is activated is when all the damage that was done manifests into adrenaline letting her deal the damage twice as hard.

NORA: Her semblance truly becomes active after an electrical charge. But as a side effect she has better control over muscle commands giving her superhuman strength on the regular.

QROW: He can turn into a crow that’s main part of the semblance a side effect is his ability to be a bad luck charm. 

REN: I call it peace of mind. It calms down the emotions and renders whoever is affected by his semblance invisible to the grimm; Only makes the people affected invisible to grimm not to other people. The side effect can be seen in Ren when he is outside of a battle it calms the emotions on the regular. 

EMERALD: Illusions. She is able to manipulate the vision and hearing parts of the mind to give whoever is under her control a realistic image… Side effect… Emotional state. She is able to throw of their mental stability by causing panic rage, or with Amber and the people she steals from a sense of trust or happiness. 

((edit to add more))FLYNT: I like to call his the echo. His clones are tangible but they don’t have minds of their own they merely echo what Flynt does, the downside/side effect is it has to keep his full attention or it doesn’t work but that is also a bonus considering that he has the ability to hyper focus enough to make his echos deadly

PYRRHA: polarity magnets!!! Yay! He side affect is not only controlling it but sensing the metal and adjusting herself to deflect without her semblance. Most prominent in her fight against CRDN.

BLAKE: Shadow has she calls it leaves a solid mimic of herself but idk if anyone else sees it but when she drops a shadow she goes invisible and becomes fast enough, when in close range, you can almost say homegirl is teleporting. She gets a hella speed boost when a shadow is dropped that and she can infuse a shadow with dust.

SUN: I call his outlines. They can be soild but it looks like they aren’t soild until contact with a target. I haven’t gotten to see a side effect but the fact that the outlines don’t stay soild the whole time sun can make more and that’s just cool so this is just me gushing about my ab boy.

((HOW DID I FORGET MY BAE)) GOODWITCH: Telepathy! Not just Telepathy homegirl has mastered her semblance so nasty that she can make items turn back time to their original form/state with little use of her aura! Obviously it can take a toll shown by her trying to rebuild beacon but my boo GOODWITCH IS THE SHIT

Most of the fandom, I have no idea why, think that semblance is a completely different thing that does not draw from Aura. I have seen too many videos and post questioning “Why don’t they use it more?” “The battle could have ended quickly!” “Why wasn’t Qrow’s active all these other times?!”

AURA! Semblances draw the power from Aura. Qrow’s aura was focused on the poison running through him ((another reason I think homie stays drunk to try to nullify the bad luck, even though it doesn’t work too well)) REN couldn’t use it in battle cause 1. his hand would have had to stay on the ground the whole time taking him out of the battle and 2. it takes a lot of Aura and we have seen that he runs out pretty quick.

now if you’ll excuse me… Imma go look at the other characters I haven’t mentioned so I can add more to my worthless post lol

does this count as a ramble…. Imma tag it as a ramble

anonymous asked:

“Alright, I love you.” :)

List of my other Prompts found HERE


Those three little words have been left on the tip of your tongue for quite a while now. You want to say them, to see his eyes light up as you finally reveal that you love him, but you always feels held back, the three words get choked up in your throat and you can’t manage to get them out, no matter how much you want to express them. 

Maybe it is because you have been hurt before, and the fact that those three little words can mean so much, one moment they are floating around perfectly, the next they mean nothing. Maybe it is because ’I love you' is overly used sometimes, and expressed far too quickly within a relationship. The three little words are not words you like to throw around without them holding meaning. They are sentimental words that are not to be taken lightly, they are not just pick up lines to effortlessly roll off the tip of your tongue. 

He knows that you have been hurt before, he knows that there is a decent reason for being reserved and anxious when it comes to telling him that you love him, too. He knows that you love him, even if you don’t announce it from the rooftops or express the words while in the comfort of his living room when you both agree on staying in and watching a movie before you go back to your apartment. 

You were wrapped up in the comfort of your comforter, trying to take your mind off the aches and pains the terrible bug had begun to put you through. You weren’t much of a complainer when it came down to you contracting some sort of cold or bug, you have always been the stubborn one to deal with it on your own, as a kid you would refuse to tell your Mum when you were sick because you did not want her to coddle you like she did your siblings. You found it to be consuming and overbearing. As you grew older, that did not change. 

So when Harry showed up at your doorstep, with flowers and a bottle of wine, you were rather surprised. His smiles gently dimmed as he noticed your pyjamas, dark eyes, and pale tone.

The group looked at each other before packing up your kit and slowly making your way to an abandoned building that was in the thick of the woods. Everyone froze when the huge green lump curled on the grip moved and roared at you, naturally the entire group screamed until it was obvious that you’d both scared each other.

“Y/N, girl. You really need to break it off with Martin,”

You took a deep breath and looked at your friend who was frowning, a deep concern lingering in her eyes.

“I know, it’s just. We’ve been together for so long and even though we have our downs it’s not like it isn’t good either,” you argued back, Ava looked back at you disapprovingly and sighed deeply.

“Does the good outweigh the bad?” she asked and you opened your mouth to answer her, but nothing came out. Because the truth was, the good didn’t outweigh the bad, it was the other way around and it had been like that for too long now.

“Listen, no matter what you guys have been through, he is an asshole, especially for what he did at Cameron’s the other day, he has no right to fucking raise his h-”

“Yes, yes I know,” you let out a sigh, sitting down on your couch beside Ava. You knew the next question that would come from her so you beat her to it.

Every time I see your art of a rare pair I somehow become a huge fan of that rare pair. I have too many otps...,

…is it okay for me to be happy I’m dragging you down with me on all of my weird ships because tbh I am for a lot of them there’s just a handful of people shipping them I’m happy you’re joining us hahaha

Anon said: because of your tags on that kamisero post i now love the hc that kirishima just uses loving bakugou as an excuse to get out of conversations that make him uncomfortable, even if it makes no sense. Like ‘any advice on how to confess?’ 'I’m dating bakugou, you probably should ask someone else.’ or 'how do you think snow works?’ 'Dude I’m dating bakugou, i don’t know.’

I’m in love with this ask because this has been my most ridiculous headcanon for an age I’m glad I could subtely make you share it, anon - Kirishima being perfectly aware of the fact that aside from the face there is no objective reason why he should be that smitten with Bakugou? That’s my jam, he’s as surprised as anyone else so when people ask him anything love related he’s like “do I look like a reliable source man DO I I think it’s hot when Bakugou yells there’s obviously something wrong with me you don’t want my advices”

But also for however aware of it he might be he’s still in love with the dude so people pointing it out to him gets old really fast, like, “it’s one thing if I say it myself and another it’s you talking shit about my boyfriend stop that”, which is why he just starts using “what do I know I like Bakugou” as an answer to anything - it starts with him being a smartass and it becomes just habit by the end of it, sometimes he uses it when Bakugou is around or with Bakugou himself and Bakugou doesn’t understand, doesn’t want to understand, has pondered the option of getting angry/offended/demanding an explaination and has deemed it not worth his time because the answer is most probably just gonna be that his boyfriend is an idiot anyway

(also he might or might not like how Kirishima’s pretty much just going around telling people he likes him over and over again, tbh)

Nik's Tips for discreet witchcraft

I know there are a lot of young witches who need to be discreet about their craft, so I’ve made some tips for how to practice witchcraft and still be discreet. Just putting a little disclaimer, I don’t practice all of these myself (like the color magic) but I thought they would be useful to include, nor do I claim to know everything, I constantly learn just like everyone else.

Witch Tips

1) keep a small notebook/sketchbook 

     A pocket sized notebook is helpful for any witch but expecially for being discreet. Drawing sigils and writing spells in the notebook is a way to cast spells in the open with no one noticing. The pocket notebook is also a great system for artists and writers as drawing and creative writing everyday really improves skill, and if someone happens to look inside the book doesn’t scream witchcraft.  I personally like using my own leather bound pocket book but the mini composition notebook also works and is less noticeable. A tip for doing the sigil or spell magic is when you write or draw imaging you intend in order to charge it and draw a circle around it to cast it (you don’t have to do this but it helps some witches). Putting a charm or sigil of hiding on the notebook will also help it not be too noticeable

2) Use online books

    The Internet is an all around helpful source, but it’s expecially helpful for discreet witches who want to do reasearch. Getting hard copy books are great but can easily be seen lying around your room. It’s much easier to just use online books and you can find more subjects than just in a library.  If you’re worried about someone looking through your history you can always use incognito mode or simply delete the history and cookies after you’re finished.

3)Wearing simple crystal jewelry

    Crystal jewelry may seem like it’s obviously witchy but with current fashion trends crystal necklaces are pretty common. Stones and crystals are used in magic all the time and have their own meanings, while it’s not uncommon for people to know that crystals have meanings it’s easy to brush off wearing crystal jewelry as just a fashion choice.  When getting crystal jewelry don’t buy from stores in the mall like hot topic or forever 21. These stores sell fake crystals, some places claim that their real but 99% if the time fashion stores sell glass instead of crystal(unless you go to an actual crystal/spiritual store, these are usually real).

4)Do rituals outside

   The practice of rituals can be hard to do if you’re trying to be a discreet witch. Doing rituals outside help with not getting caught in the middle of a ritual. There is still a chance someone could catch you but it’s a very small chance and they’re most likely a stranger you’ll never see again. If you use incense in rituals being outside helps the smell not linger where people can smell and become suspicious as well. Being out in nature while doing rituals also helps green witches with spiritual energy.

5)Use scented candles for candle magic

   Having lots of candles can raise suspicious with some people, scented candles fix this. Having one or two scented candles doesn’t seem abnormal and is pretty common. Yankee Candle has a great variety of color and scents, you can pick by a color you commonly use or by scent. Herbal scents such as rosemary and lavender double as color magic and scent magic. Make sure when you pick out candles pick a scent you like and that the smell won’t give you a headache.

6)Keep a small magic box

   Having a small box is good for storing little witchy items and because the box is small it can be easily hidden. Keeping a candle, lighter, a few small crystals and some herbs, are a few basics that can usually fit in a small box. You can get a small wooden box at craft stores for about a dollar and decorate it or keep it plain, or even use an empty Altoids tin.  Another way to keep it hidden is putting a charm or sigil of hiding. Small magic boxes are also helpful for transportation to outdoor rituals.

7)Use color magic when getting dressed

    Using color magic when getting dressed is a simple form of magic and no one can tell you’re doing witchcraft. When putting away your clothes you can easily charge the clothing with the intent so it’s ready for when you wear it. If you’re like me and wear the same color everyday you can write small sigils on the tags of clothing.

8)Write sigils in lotion

   Writing sigils onto your skin with lotion or make up foundation are a great form of discreet witchcraft. Once you write the sigil and rub it into your skin it can no longer be seen therefore no getting caught. Rubbing the sigil into your skin helps imbue the magic into you. This practice is great for glamour spells.

9)Use whatever is in the kitchen for herb magic.

    Buying or drying your own herbs could possibly raise questions, if you’re doing herb magic just try to use whatever herbs you have in the kitchen. The best way to do this is to just put the herbs in meals you’re having. When taking herbs from the kitchen just remember not to do it too often and get caught.

10)Avoid making an alter

     This is kind of an obvious thing not to do. Having an alter is a very easy way to get caught and you don’t need an alter to perform witchcraft. If you insist on having an alter you can make a pocket alter which is basically the same as the small magic box in tip #6.

11)Pocket stones

     Discreet or not pocket stones are useful. Pocket stones are just stones or crystals you keep in your pocket or in a pouch throughout the day. Most people won’t be going through your pockets so it’s good for a discreet crystal witch.

12)If you want to collect crystal also keep a rock/mineral book

     Crystals are a fairly witchy thing but just adding a rock guide book makes it look like a simple collection which is pretty common. Whether your a discreet witch or not rock guide books are a good things to keep around if you want to learn.

13)Herb magic potpourri

     If you make herb pouches use nicely scented herbs to have the pouch double as potpourri. If the pouches double as potpourri they’re more inconspicuous. Places the pouches around dirty laundry or in drawers, placement helps the pouches look more like potpourri and less like witchcraft.

I hope these tips are helpful to some people and if you have any questions feel free to ask!

Pairing: Dean x Reader

Warnings: Angst

Words Count: 1.021

Author’s Note: I love myself for this. I love when I see a gif and click! I get the idea! I hope you like this!
P.s. thank you to my best friend, @hotwinchester for helping me in the correction. You’re the best!

If you wanna be tagged in my stories, tell me!


I go into the kitchen to get something to drink, when I see Dean sitting on the floor near the kitchen, with a beer in his hands. He approaches the bottle to his lips and takes a sip, then put it down. On his legs he placed a small wooden box, with photographs inside.
“Dean,” I whisper his name, but he hears me, and turns his face toward me. No smile, no words. Only his sad face, for how things went with his mother.
Mary is ‘returned’ from the dead by only a few days, and has already decided to ‘give up’ on Sam and Dean. She decided to leave, to put in order her thoughts.
I understand a little; It shouldn’t be at all easy to come back to life, and discover that your husband is dead, and that your children are no longer kids, but men.
Dean is destroyed by the decision of his mother, although of course, is not the type who talks a lot. He tries to pretend not to prove anything, but Sam and I both know that he feels 'abandoned’.
I approach him, hoping he wouldn’t send me away, and I support my hips to the kitchen. Without looking up, Dean wraps his arm around my right leg, massaging up and down.
“They are beautiful.. the photos.”
I feel him smile, while with his free hand Dean skims photos; We are all here. A photo depicts Sam and Dean smiling carefree; in another there are Dean, Sam and Bobby, propped the Impala.
I remember that picture, I have taken it. Another retracts me and Dean, I sat on his legs, while we laugh together; I had never seen.
The last picture that Dean takes in his hands, retracts a child with light brown hair, almost blond, and a woman at his side: they are Dean and his mother, at the time when he was a child; when the life of the Winchester family was.. normal.
Slowly I slip to the floor, and sit down close to Dean.
“Are you okay?”
“Yes.”
I smile and I approach closer to him, leaning my head on his shoulder.
“No, it’s not true.”
Dean picks up the photos, and he places them in the box. Suddenly he extends his arm towards me, and wraps it around my waist, leaving me a kiss on the head.
I look up, and I try to look at his eyes, but he quickly turns around the other side.
“You know that she will come back, right?” I ask him, hoping that he finally look at me. He doesn’t do it; merely he nods to my question, unconvinced.
I approached my hand to his face, and I obliged to look at me; his eyes finally meet mine.
Maybe he will not say out loud what he feels, but his eyes say it all: they show a Dean in pieces, full of pain that he tries to hide the disappointment in his mother’s decisions, and, worst of all, the fear, that he had done something wrong. He did, or said something, which led Mary to her decision to leave.
“Dean, don’t do it. Don’t blame yourself for everything. Your mother is just.. confused. I know you hate the fact that she has decided to leave, and I know that you feel as if she has abandoned you. But it doesn’t. Put yourself in her shoes: John is dead, but she didn’t care, because he was in heaven with her, with you and Sam. Perhaps you think coming back to life has recovered you and your brother, and partly it is so. But in part also she lost her husband, and her children. The Dean child, and the baby Sam. Mary will come back to you, to you and Sam, and she will understand that her place in the world is with you.”
Dean smiles at me, continuing to remain silent; soon after pushing his weight forward and stands up, stretches out his arms to me, and clasping my hands in his, pulling me to himself, taking me in his toned arms.
“Sometimes I ask myself what I’d do without you.” suddenly he says; his words make me blush, and instinctively I look down watching our feet. Dean touches my chin with his fingers, and raise my face, bringing together our looks.
“You’re gorgeous, you know?”
I smile, while Deans is getting closer to me, until touch our lips.
I surround my arms around Dean’s neck, holding in fingers his soft hair. He puts his hands on my hips, and pushes me closer to the steel bar in the middle of the kitchen; Dean takes me in his arms, and makes me sit on the shelf, continuing to move his mouth on mine. We move away for a few seconds to breathe, then I sling back on his fantastic lips.
Anyone would like to kiss the lips of Dean Winchester. Dean himself would have kissed who knows how many women. But now, since we have a stable relationship, he is all mine; and I am his.
“Do you really think that she will be back? ..my Mom.” asks Dean after being turned away from me, the tone of his voice came back seriously.
“I think so. You and Sam are her sons. She would always love you.”
For a moment I see a Dean melancholic and serious, that of a few minutes ago. As he has done before me, I touch his face with fingers, and I obliged him to look at me.
“You know what? Drop her a message if you like.” I say to Dean, his eyes light up at once.
Before he does something 'stupid’, I keep talking.
“But not now.. maybe tomorrow. And.. one. Don’t be possessive.”
“I thought you liked when I am possessive with you.” He says, smiling again.
“Of course, with me.”
I smile, and I draw back to me, desirous of his soft lips.
“You know I love you, right?”
“And I love you, Dean Winchester.”

Ladybug jutted a thumb at him and smirked at Alya. “See? I think we’ll be good.”

She was practically vibrating. “Alright, you crazy kids, I’m gonna read off the questions for you once you start. Whenever you’re ready.”
