underneath the moon

Ted Bundy told detectives in Florida that sometimes he “felt like a vampire,” in that he could live on about three hours of sleep a night.  Bundy would drive around all night in his car, often following women on foot who were walking by themselves.  This habit began not only as a progression of his consuming fantasies involving murder, but also as an extension of his voyeurism, which originated when he was a teenager and would peep into the windows of the houses in his neighborhood to see women undressing.  As another outgrowth of his perverted fantasies, Bundy also admitted that he liked to kill underneath a bright moon or in front of his car’s headlights so that he could fully see his victims and what he was doing to them.

“All-in.” The handsome guy sitting in front of you coldly said while pushing his 50000$ worth of chips forward.

This was your first time in an illegal casino. This one was in the back of a fancy restaurant, normal costumers had no clue of what was going on in the background.

A friend of yours, who worked at the restaurant, told you about this place and you decided to come here and test your luck. There was a huge variety of people here and you knew some of them were dangerous but you didn’t care, you enjoyed the extra danger.

Full Moon Wish Spell🙂

I’ve been experimenting with moon magick lately and I thought some people might find this one very helpful! I use this for good luck/fortune whenever I feel it necessary.
You will need:
•A Clear Jar (at least a pint size)
•Moon water
•One Silver Coin
•A Bell
•A White or Silver Candle

You will need to perform this spell outside during the night with a clear view of the moon. 😊

STEPS:
•Fill your jar with the moon water and light your candle.

•Sit underneath the moon and enjoy/absorb the moons light. I love to meditate during this step and feel the moons light fill me 🙂 do this for at least three or so minutes (feel free to do more!)

•Drop the coin into the water. Imagine that the coin is the wish that you hope to come true. Picture the moons energy and light surrounding your coming and the wish.

•Let the water calm down and settle until it is smooth again.

•Adjust the jar so that the moons light reflects off of the coin.

•Gaze at the coin and the reflection together. Fill the coin and the light with the intent of how you want your wish to turn out or be fulfilled.

•Ring the bell 3 times

•Speak your Wish out loud and/or ask the goddess (Diana) of the moon (or whichever God/Goddess of the moon you prefer🙂) to fullfill the wish or to bring you general good fortune.

After you complete these steps feel free to bring all of your materials inside 😊 Keep the coin inside the water until the next full moon or until you feel as if your wish was complete!😊

I’ve ha great success with this spell! I hope you all have the same amount of success!

(Keep in mind that this spell is NOT made to perform miracles!)

He interrupts you before you can even get a word in. “Drop it.”

You scoff, exhaling in a laugh that brings the uneasy smile across your lips. “You don’t even know what I was going to say.”

“Of course I do,” He retorts, straightening up and turning his neck to glare at you, red eyes and all. “It’s written all over your face.”

You furrow your eyebrows together. “If you know, then why won’t you let me—!”

“I said to drop it,” Another interjection, this time through clenched teeth, balled fists, every red flag to show that you cannot win in this argument. Normally, you would let it go, let the fury from arguments simmer over until things really got better. But how can you drop something like this, how can you wait until things get better if he won’t get better?

Keep an Eye on the Sky

The sky. Focus on the sky. That’s all I could do as I waited for my crew to return.


     He was draped across my weak arms and sunken legs, his limp, cold body in a state of constant fatigue. Lance’s eyes were closed, his eyebrows drawn together in a painful expression and his mouth was parted ever so slightly. Small puffs of air left his opened mouth, indicating the vast temperature range between his body and their surroundings.

     What were they supposed to do? Keith and Lance had been flung from their lions during the wormhole trip to escape from the fleet of armed Galra ships that were enthralled by the idea that they needed to kill the Voltron crew members, especially since they had just defeated the Galra leader, Zarkon. Now Keith held Lance close, his body temperature much higher than that of the pure-blooded human’s. Being that Keith was part Galra, he wasn’t exactly sure how much Galra blood ran through his veins, his body temperature was higher than that of what he considered normal.

     They had been stranded on a planet that was encased in ice. A traumatic event had occurred here, being that he could see the planets inhabitants frozen below their feet. Entire trees, or what he assumed to be some sort of tree-like plants, were frozen underneath the surface. A moon, nearly the same size as the planet itself, could be seen at all times. Keith had assumed that this planet was struck by that object, pushing it out of its goldilocks zone.

     Whatever this planet was, whoever inhabited it, didn’t matter now because the only two beings that were alive in Keith’s general vicinity were bound to die of hypothermia. He couldn’t believe the position that they were stuck in. Lance had been drifting in and out of consciousness for the past several hours, his fingertips turning an unnatural bluish color.

     “Lance, buddy, you awake? You’ve gotta stay with me,” Keith croaked out as he saw the darker skinned male’s eyes flutter open ever so slightly. Lance’s throat moved, as though he was trying to make a sound of confirmation, but no noise was audible. Tears filled Keith’s eyes as he saw his friend in such a pitiful state.

     Was this it? Was this how the mighty paladins of Voltron were going to perish, by the inescapable cold that is outer space, the place that they have been stuck in for so many months? Keith couldn’t help but let out a few choked sobs, the tears immediately freezing when they hit Lance’s garments below him.

     He didn’t want to give up, but what else exactly were they supposed to do? They could only hope and wait for their friend’s arrival, but Keith’s body heat wouldn’t last forever. In fact, he had begun to feel the biting winds pierce his skin through his shirt, and he could only imagine what Lance was suffering through.

     “I-I’m so sorry Lance…” he sobbed out now, hope dissipating into the freezing winds of this unruly planet. He wanted to give up more than anything else he had ever wanted.

     That is until he heard the distant opening of a wormhole somewhere above them.


Hello to all of my wonderful readers! This is my first ever Voltron fanfic. I did it in regards to Weepingladylangst's requested promt (with permission of course), hypothermic Lance. I hope the asker of this promt enjoyed this story! I apologize (not really) for the subtle Klangst.

Students of every year are required to take a class on the skill of broom flying. First years will learn the very basics whilst the upper years can take electives on the topic; ranging from long term flying to competitive broom maneuvers.


KNOWING NO-MAJS

Professor Erika Weisz

    Odd creatures they are; those who live day in and out without the power of magic in their blood. Called No-Majs on this side of the waters, the relationship between they and the wizarding folk of America is full of sorrow and distrust. Students of every year are expected to learn about this messy history between the two, as well as a basic understanding of No-Maj lifestyles and culture in order to blend in between with their kind outside in the world.


MAGICAL HISTORY

Professor Berit Aphra

    As a result of the impressively rich and long history of the Magical World that is in the United States, students are expected to take six years of Magical History. Here, they will learn of their founder, Isolt Sayer and her journey from the clutches of Gormlaith Gaunt to the construction of what we now call Ilvermorny School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

     Classes are held within the campus’s adjacent forest, underneath the light of the moon during the midsts of the night. It is thought, only then, one can connect truly with their animalistic side.


TRANSFIGURATION

Professor Eponine Avanti

    This class is often viewed on a scale of two very vast extremes, You’re either turning water into rum or turning yourself into a cat.  This course takes transfiguration to a whole new level of extreme and fun.  In your very first two years of education you will come to be able to turn simple objects into whichever your heart desires.  Once you round to your fourth year of instruction in this subject, you will come to participate in Professor Avanti’s game of Transfigure & Seek!  

     This is a final exam well loved by all elder years and many of them are known to offer their assistance to the Professor in helping set up, judge or even sit as spectators to cheer on the fourth years.  You will learn much in this class with no shortage of fun in doing so.


XYLOMANCY

Professor Vernon Gwydion

    Often overlooked within the magical community as a ‘flawed’ version of Divination in other countries around the world, the American Wizarding curriculum has, actually, accepted the branch of future viewing as the main way. The uses of twigs within the natural, ancient forests of the United States, such as the pines of Virginia and the Redwoods of California, combined with the art of Xylomancy crafted by the ancient tribes of the past allow for a clearer way into predicting the outcome of the future; a way completely and utterly unique especially to America.
