wand raise

Thanatophobia

Remi enters an empty classroom at night.

“Right. Just one more time. I have to beat it.”

She opens an old cupboard. A myterious fog appears. She raises her wand, awaiting the unknown. The fog dissapears, reveling someone.

“What.. What are you doing here?”

Siria chokes and cries out in pain, she falls to the ground. Remi tries to catch her, but fails.

Remi: crying, deeply desperate: “This is just an illusion, just an illusion. It’s not real..”

Siria: “It’s not. You know what you truly are.”

Siria: “Everyone is afraid of you. Jamie? Pete? They hate you. Your family? They hate you. Me? I hate you. Everyone does. All they wish is for you to leave. Everyone does. You’re a disgusting monster.”

Siria screams in pain and dies. Remi freaks out, desperated.

The real Siria suddenly slams the door open. “Remi? WhaT ARE YOU DOING?”

Remi: “Siria.. help me.”


Thantophobia (n.)- The overwhelming fear of losing someone you love.

Harry Potter Fandom, raise you wands.

Star Wars Fandom, raise you light sabers.

Hunger Games Fandom, raise you salute.

Outsiders Fandom, raise you drinks.

Sandlot Fandom, raise your baseball mits and bats.

And every other fandom I missed, raise your most memorable element in the complete honour of yet another fallen hero. I am someone who has never seen the Star Wars films but still feel this loss pretty heavily. May her spirit guide all of our fandoms in the direction of caring hospitality towards one another.

Into the Wand... Ok, now what?

My first reaction to Into the Wand looked something like this

Into the Wand did something the fans have been wanting for awhile now. It gave us some answers on Toffee’s backstory and his connections to the Butterfly family… BUT it also raised some new ones. This will be the main point of this post.

Now, when Star goes into the wand to “find the thing that doesn’t belong” we are treated to an onslaught of things Star remembers. Whether it be something she is used to seeing everyday (Marco’s hoodie and Echo Creek Academy), things from her childhood (Her dad’s chair and the Mewni Castle), to things she never personally saw but might have remembered subconsciously as a baby (The Grandma Room and Little Chauncey).

The Grandma Room is, to put it in simplest terms, the past queens of Mewni portrait hall. Only, instead of standard portraits of royals like we see in history books or on Wikipedia pages, we get Tapestries of important moments in there lives.

Tapestries of queens like Selena the Shy featuring men coming to either court her or learn her secrets as she holds her wand/fan. Solaria the Monster Carver’s tapestry is her kicking monster but and defending Mewni (how much of the threat the monster’s really were is up for debate). However, two tapestries really caught mine (and the fandom’s eye)

First off; Elicpsa Queen of Darkness. i mean, just look at her tapestry.

And then, her little blurb:

“Eclipsa Queen of Mewni to a Mewmen King was wed. But took a monster for her love and away from Mewni fled.”

Bad Girl indeed. Just look at her. Not only do we finally have the spades character, but we have the possibility for a backstory on another queen that isn’t Moon.

Speaking of, her tapestry and blurb… intrigue me.

“The Immortal Monster will long be haunted by the Darkest Spell of Moon the Undaunted.”

Ok, now I’m finally going to get to my theory. First of all: Toffee.

Not only is he down right terrified (as apposed to his usual stoic expression) he also sports some skulls on his shoulders as apart of some uniform. But look at what are on those skulls.

Diamond and Spade cheek marks. We know who the spades belong to, obviously. He might have put Elicpsa’s skull on his shoulder for some symbolic f pride reason but I’m curious about the diamond cheek skull. We already know that Moon has the Diamond’s on her cheek so… how?! (I’m sure Nefcy and crew will figure out someway to explain this but for now, I’m going to just ignore this)

Now, after seeing this tapestry, many people have written off Toffee and Moon’s history as enemies. But, I have to disagree. I mean, come on!

You don’t get have THIS MUCH EMOTION 

from simply being just enemies.

I think there’s more to this story then we’ve yet to see. Maybe they were friends and Toffee just got fed up with Moon’s behavior. Maybe they were a parallel to Marco and Star. However, new theories have come to light and while i’m not behind them completely, I have to admit they have some key theories.

All these new theories have one thing in common, they both connect Toffee and Elicpsa.

Especially after the quasi-Jump Scare scene after Star grabs Toffee’s finger (which I will discuss a bit later). I couldn’t get a GIF so just settle for images.

Many people have started to theorize that Toffee is actually the son of Eclipsa and her monster lover. It’s not an entirely crazy theory. It allows for some of Toffee’s resentment to the Butterfly family be justified. They didn’t approve of his mom and dad’s relationship and practically forced her out and his half-sister blew his finger off. Justifiable and gives him motive. But I do not support this theory due to lack of sufficient evidence (and my own personal head-cannons) and the fact that I think it goes deeper than that. Maybe Toffee and Moon are related, maybe not. Who knows? Obviously, we won’t be getting any concrete evidence until we’re over the halfway mark of the season (and even then that might be stretching it)

Another thing I want to point out is Miss Heinous.

Her cheek marks (Clubs) are a muted grey-ish kind of color. While, for all the other cheek marks we’ve seen, they’re some sort of lively or bright color. Perhaps Miss Heinous is the daughter of Eclipsa and Monster-Lover and was ridiculed as a child and told she was never a “True, proper Princess” and that’s what inspired her to establish St. Olga’s Reform School for Wayward Princesses. It’s all speculation at this point but honestly, I support this theory more than I support the Toffee-Eclipsa’s child theory. Because to me, this has more legs to stand on.

For now, all we can do is wait for more episodes to come out so we can (hopefully) piece together the mystery of Toffee.

However, one of the episode Page Turner is set to air next week and it may cover some of Moon’s secrets, some of Toffee’s secrets, or maybe even some of Celina the Shy’s secrets. I’m hoping for the latter.

Well, that’s about all I have to say on the new episode. I have a few other theories so stay tuned for that. Also expect some other content coming out soon. Until then I’ll see you guys later.

(Also, thought Glossaryck in the tapestries, just hovering cross-legged through all the shit that goes down was hilarious)

hp quotes // “Along the way, he was to dispose of Voldemort’s remaining links to life, so that when at last he flung himself across Voldemort’s path, and did not raise a wand to defend himself, the end would be clean, and the job that ought to have been done in Godric’s Hollow would be finished: neither would live, neither could survive.

“Tina,” Graves sighs, pinching the bridge of his nose. “What, in the name of God, are you doing half naked in my office?” 


“Take off your clothes!” Newt yells. “Now, Tina! QUICKLY!”


“And then he ran into my wand. He ran into my wand ten times.” 

“Gellert, please.” 


“Are you courting me?” Graves asks, incredulous. “Do you know who I am?” 


“Sir,” Tina’s voice is soft, broken. “There’s been… an accident.” 


“Newt? Why is there a mermaid in the bathtub? I need to get ready for the MACUSA’s annual end of the year ceremony, Newt. Newt get that mermaid out of the bathroom. Newt.” 


“If I take into account their glares and raised wands, I’d say that they want to kill you,” Graves says. Credence smiles dangerously. 

“They wouldn’t be the first. Let them come. I’m not helpless anymore.” 


“You are, without a doubt, the worst criminal I have ever heard of,” Seraphina muses.

“But you have heard of me.” 


“Can we not do this now?” 

“Yes we can and yes we will,” Newt growls. “You’ve been putting this off, again and again and I am frankly tired of you playing hide and seek like we’re five years old instead of grown adults.” 

“This is a stakeout. We’re on a mission.” 

“I care more about saving this relationship than the fucking mission.” 


“Aren’t you supposed to do my biding?” Graves asks, incredulous.

“Not interested, thanks. However, your cat looks cute, so I think I’m gonna stick around.” 


“I can’t believe you summoned a demon into our apartment, Tina. What will Mrs Esposito say?” 

“He’s cute?” Tina says weakly, staring at the man-demon-thing with curly hair and freckles currently sleeping on their sofa. 

He’s a demon.” 


“Let go of me,” Credence snarls. “Let go of me or I swear I will kill you.”

“With what? You’re unharmed. You don’t have a wand.” 


“Ahah, very funny. I didn’t know you were capable of humor, Madam President.” 

Silence. 

“You are joking, right?” 

“You’re fired, Mr Graves.” 


“Is that a phoenix?” 

“Yes.” 

“Why is there a phoenix flying around in the office, burning my paperwork?” 

“It hatched this morning,” Newt says, cooing at the bird. “Come see mummy. Here. Good.” 


“You know what I need? I need a good, old fashioned banging,” Tina slurs, taking off her shirt and stumbling around the room drunkenly until she finally falls on the bed.  

“While I’m not sure who you are or what you are doing in my tent,” a British voice replies, turning on the light, “I’m sure I could help you with that.” 

Tina yells.


“I’m not usually so straightforward,” Seraphina says, “but I’ll be damned if you aren’t the most gorgeous girl I’ve ever met in the entirety of my lesbian life. Can I get your number?” 

The blond waitress - Queenie, her name tag reads- blushes prettily. “U-uh, I, I mean… Sure. Yeah. I won’t be able to text back until 7 though.” 

“That’s fine. Holy shit.” Seraphina takes a sip and burns her tongue in the process. “Thanks for the coffee.”

Imagine Newt tutoring you back in Hogwarts.

“Again, (Y/N).” Newt watched you while nibbiling on the tip of his wand. You sighed in annoyance and threw your head back in defeat.
“I can’t do it.” You mumbled.
‘You can do it, just try again.“ Newt looked at you with compassion. He really did believe in you. You couldn’t let him down.
With reluctance, you raised your wand and gave it a flick.

‘Oh my - !’ shrieked Hermione, as she and Ron caught up with Harry and gazed upwards at the giant now trying to seize people through the window above.
'DON’T!’ Ron yelled, grabbing Hermione’s hand as she raised her wand. 'Stun him and he’ll crush half the castle - ’

This is so important. Like, this tiny moment demonstrates the way these two think, and how they think differently. (And that doesn’t make either of them smarter or dumber. (ง︡’-‘︠)ง)

But like - Hermione approaches this situation in a very problem-solution way of thinking: Giant is threat to people around him, so get rid of giant. Ron - and I would expect no less from a person who’s been playing chess for so long, and so well - has more of a cause and effect way of thinking. And in this moment, he thinks a step further than Hermione - he realises Stunning the giant will come with consequences as well, and these must be taken into account. 

Classic chess player.

🔪 Cruciatus Curse 🔪

a harry potter inspired curse to create pain in the life of the intended, whether physical or emotional 

Voldemort raised his wand, and before Harry could do anything to defend himself, before he could even move, he had been hit again by the Cruciatus curse. The pain was so intense, so all-consuming, that he no longer knew where he was… white-hot knives were piercing every inch of his skin, his head was surely going to burst with pain; he was screaming more loudly than he’d ever screamed in his life.” — Harry Potter under the effects of the curse

🔪 gather: pins, a white candle, raspberry leaves, a representative object, a wand, and a white candle

🔪 light the white candle, melt some of the wax

🔪 use the wax to bind the raspberry leaf to the object

🔪 stick the area with the wax and the leaf full of pins 

🔪 gesture with the wand around the object, chant “crucio!” 

🔪 remove pins to end. 

2 May 1998: the battle of hogwarts

17 years ago today, people fought for freedom. 

17 years ago today, Nymphadora Tonks and Remus Lupin died fighting for what they believed in: love and equality. 17 years ago today, Teddy Lupin became an orphan.

17 years ago today, Fred Weasley died fighting for family and joy. 17 years ago today, two became one and nine became eight.

17 years ago today, Colin Creevey and Lavender Brown fought for education and their friends. 17 years ago today, a boy lost his older brother and role model and two couples lost their child.

17 years ago today, Severus Snape died because he stayed loyal to the man who gave him a second chance. He died fighting for forgiveness. 

17 years ago today, 50 others died too. Leaving family and friends.  

Let us raise our wands in memory of all who fought bravely for what they believed in. They all fought for freedom and love, knowing that if they’d lose, they’d lose many friends and family. They didn’t want to live in a society were muggle-borns would be killed or had to go into hiding. They didn’t want to live in a society filled with darkness. They fought for light and goodness, because they knew that living without love isn’t living at all.

I would like to believe that Professor Snape cared for Luna in secret. Luna reminded him of a young Lily Evans. Severus would watch over Luna and whenever he would witness a student or even a staff bullying her or being mean to her he would find a reason to punish them; like sending a student to detention or deducting house points for the slightest thing, say loitering or whistling in the halls. As for one of the teachers he would just be a bit more vile towards them. Luna had no idea that Professor Snape did this for her, no one knew except for Severus himself. When Severus was gone, Luna sensed that something was different with her school life, but she couldn’t figure out what it was that had changed; Yes, a lot had changed during that time, but it was something more. Luna felt like something was missing, a piece of her heart, her soul was gone forever and she couldn’t figure out what had previously taken up that space.
