yes okay this is great

I am so fucking glad Funko is putting actual effort into the Cuphead figures instead of their usual generic style

The Devil one also looms over Cuphead and Mugman, being two inches taller than them, so I feel like the three would look great displayed together.

EDIT: Okay yes, I am aware now that Funko Pops are the generic-looking ones and these are not Pops and Funko actually makes on-model figures sometimes, thank you for telling me 5000 times

Haven Craft’s Tips for Beginner Witches, Part One

Tips for Beginner Witches

Let’s start with this – I am not the witch Pope. I cannot speak for the witchcraft community as a whole; only for my own tradition.

5 Things I Believe Beginner Witches Should Ask Themselves

Note that the answers to these things will change, but that a firm grasp of the answers at any point in your practice may be helpful to you. I recommend actually writing your answers down, and every now and again check back and see if your stance has shifted.

1. Is magick real?

If yes, then what do you mean when you say, “Magick is real”. (Do you mean that you can effect reality with your will, intent, and energy? Do you mean like, Harry Potter real? What will disappoint you to realize might not be probable? What will inspire you to realize you can accomplish?)

2. Where are your lines? (What do you firmly believe is true/false, right/wrong? Violence, doing harm, controlling others, etc. Would you punch someone if they threatened a friend? Would you curse someone if they threatened a friend? What would you do, if your coven head told you it was right but you felt it was wrong?)

3. What are you looking for in a magickal path? (Pro Tip – no one has all the answers and there is no one right way.)

4. What are you prepared to do in order to accomplish your goals? (How many spoons do you have to give this practice? Can you devote one night a week, are you going to randomly pick stuff up on Tumblr, are you going to leave society to pursue your studies under a waterfall, etc.)


I recommend that no one make any oaths or vows in their first year of practice. Get to know yourself, how you feel about magick, and what you actually want to do before you do any big commitments. (Historic anecdote – this is what the original year and a day was for.) More strident, but still personal, recommendation: if someone tries to get you to oath to them within your first week of being a witch, run.


Things People Should Tell Beginner Witches, But Often Don’t

1. Don’t be afraid to change your mind.

2. Don’t throw good energy after bad by continuing to do something that isn’t right for you.

3. Don’t be afraid to continue your education, even if that means learning something that was right for you before is no longer right for you.

4. There is no one right way to do this. There is no Witch Pope - there is no dogmatic enforcement of the path to being a witch.

5. There are absolutely as many assholes in Paganism and witchcraft as there are anywhere else. Don’t think that these people are all spiritually enlightened beings who mean you well and who will give good advice.

6. Yahoo Answers is not your friend. You have the internet – which has access to both all of human information and all of human misinformation. Look for credible sources. Anything that seems too easy or too good to be true probably is. Work on critical thinking.

7. Try Scholar.Google.Com over “this article says so on Patheos.com.” Seriously, recently an article on there claimed Friday the 13th was a sacred holiday in goddess centered pre-Christian Paganism before the patriarchy ruined it. There is no historical validation for that, but a bunch of witches reblogged it. (Things you learn from scholarly sources rather than the latest poorly edited Llewellyn mess: the Burning Times didn’t happen, different kinds of Pagans warred amongst themselves long before Christianity came onto the scene, there was no great unified Pagan religion before Christianity, and Gerald Gardner was probably lying about almost everything he said.)


You Should Probably Learn the Difference Between Paganism, Wicca, and Witchcraft

What is Paganism?

Pagan is an umbrella term for a member of a religious, spiritual, or cultural community, other than those of the main world religions, so:

Non-Abrahamic – it is not Christian, Catholic, Jewish, Muslim, or Mormon

Non-Eastern – it is not Buddhism, Hinduism, Taoism, Sufism, or Sikhism

Theistic – The belief in some kind of divine power, which is sometimes polytheistic (a belief in more than one god), but not always

Some Pagans practice witchcraft – others do not.

This definition isn’t quite right, though it’s in hugely common usage, because there are Abrahamic and Eastern persons who consider themselves Pagan. Keep in mind that there will be exceptions to this definition and that those exceptions are valid.

There are also secular Pagans, so it isn’t even always Theistic. I know – it’s complicated. Though this is the largely accepted Academic definition, it doesn’t really work when applied to the real world, if you’re considering someone saying, “I’m Pagan” as a self-identifying definition, which I do. 

Wicca

Wicca is a religion. Most people consider Wicca as falling under the Paganism umbrella, although not all Pagans are Wiccan. Not all Wiccans are witches, and not all witches are Wiccan.

Wiccan is generally defined as:

Dualistic – There is a God and a Goddess

Pacifistic – Wicca has a rede that requires Wiccan do no harm to themselves or others, though not all Wiccans (such as those who follow Doreen Valiente’s suggested guidelines) are Pacifistic, so there are definitely exceptions to this

Earth-based – Having a respect for and acknowledgment of the powers of the Earth

Witchcraft

The spiritual or secular art, craft, and/or practice of the witch, defined many ways by many different people.

A witch is a witch who says they are one.

Again, there is no witch Pope and no witchy excommunication because you define yourself as a witch differently than someone else does.

Yes, male identifying and/or presenting persons can be witches.


Pagan and Witch Fallacies

There are certain ideas that most beginners in the witchcraft community will encounter over and over again. I’m going to run down some things – with the reminder, again, that I can only speak for my personal tradition.

1. “You should remove all negative influences from your life! You should purge all negative feelings! Be positive all the time!” Not everything that is negative is bad. Not everything negative can be avoided – we can’t all just quit our jobs and live in a witch shack in the mountains. We have to endure negative things, both because it is healthier to experience the full range of human emotion rather than to ignore a large chunk of it, and because it isn’t possible. What we should do is stop victim blaming witches who are going through hard times and stop telling witches they can’t be angry when they encounter something that should be angering.

2. “But, tradition!” Just because an affluent white guy in the 1400-1600s said something, doesn’t mean you should do it. We don’t follow their medicinal advice anymore; we don’t have to follow their magickal advice either. Seriously, I don’t care if tradition says a trans woman shouldn’t be in a sky clad ritual – that’s bullshit. We don’t put leeches on our bodies anymore – let’s leave the past nonsense where it belongs.

3. “We have to make sure everyone feels included and welcome!” Not if they abuse the welcome of others, we do not. The problem with making some people feel included and welcome is that you make their victims feel excluded and unwelcome because you’ve made them unsafe.

4. “We have to support each other and love each other and be a positive force in people’s lives.” Okay, yes, in small doses, this is a great aim. It doesn’t work for everyone (some witches are spite and malice fueled and they are still witches), but okay, it’s a nice idea. Until it becomes ableist or demands free emotional labor from people, which it often does.

5. “We have to educate them!” Okay, it’s great that there is this effort in the community to educate others. But if you don’t have the spoons or if it seems like they’re using the demand for their own education as a way to still have access to a community they are abusing, then no, you have no obligation to put their education over your well being. None. They have access to Google (even if they have to go to a library to use it.)

6. “You have to earn your right to be a witch.” No, no you don’t. Seriously, though, from whom? Dusty white men in graves? A Llewellyn author who couldn’t fact check themselves out of a paper bag? Again – no witch Pope. I’m just gonna keep pointing out the lack of a witch Pope until people get it.

7. “You have to be ________ rank, degree, etc. to have an opinion on this topic.” Yeah, okay, I’ll be sure to wave my certificate in your face before having an opinion on my own tradition. No. Your opinion may be an uneducated one and you may be corrected for it, but that doesn’t mean that you didn’t have the right to it before you completed your O levels at Hogwarts.

8. As a corollary to above, “This is just my opinion and you can’t be mad at me for it!” People absolutely have a right to their opinions. And everyone else the right to decide those opinions make them an asshole.

9. “I’m super special and powerful because xyz, which means I get to tell you what to do.” People only get to tell you what to do if you let them. Sometimes, that’s an exchange we willingly make, but other times, people will feel they have the right to tell you what to do because they are a hereditary witch or because they’ve been practicing longer. Just remember – their position doesn’t trump your humanity and you don’t have to kiss the feet of someone who kicks you.

10. “The person really wants _____ from you, and you should help them on their path. Helping them on their path helps you on yours!” Just because someone wants something from you, doesn’t mean they get it. Being a witch doesn’t take away your right to say no.  


Please remember that you don’t have to earn your right to be here. This one is tricky on some level – to be the respected person in your community, you need to put in your time. However, in order to be part of a group you don’t need to give the High Priest a blow job (seriously, run).

You don’t have to earn admission to witchcraft, but you do have to earn specific positions and other people’s trust. If you teach people not to trust you through your actions, they won’t trust you.

Okay yes, so sweet adorable shy helpful fun pastel-themed Hufflepuffs are great and all, but get this:

• punk and goth Hufflepuffs!

• Hufflepuffs who stay to themselves but aren’t the shy kid who everyone likes because that’s not real, and they’re just another nobody and that’s fine.

Pick up lines (Voltron)

Lance: *in a bush* Alright Shiro, you got this

Shiro: *fumbling through a date with Allura. There is an earpiece attached to his ear to link him to Lance*

Lance: Now tell her, “We make a great team”. That is the best pick up line I have. 

Shiro: Okay *to Allura* Hey, Allura. 

Allura: Yes?

Shiro: We make a great- Ooohhhhh *Cringes at the bushes* he didn’t realize you were flirting with him. 

Lance: SHUT UP! I’m never being your wingman again! 


From that point on Shiro did his very best to subtly convey to Keith that saying “We make a great team” is a means of flirting. 

Guess what came in today?? @goddamnchou‘s Sugar with the amazing cover by Pandanoi! I’m so glad I didnt forget to order one before it’s out of store, because I love that fic to pieces…It’s Fluff, Feels, Smut and…Daddy in all the right amounts :> The Eruris themselves did take a look too:

…at the smut, huehuehue.

It’s been a long day without you, my friend

My arm is getting bigger, or something?

anonymous asked:

Omg what is merman!Taehyung kept trying to convince "Y/N" that he'd fit in their bathtub because he wanted to see them more often

“taehyung, no, it’s not going to work! it’s not enough!”

“you haven’t even tried it yet!” he huffs, poking at your ankle. you snort and flick your foot, enough to sprinkle water across his face and he rolls his eyes, shaking it off before rolling his eyes at you, “real mature, y/n,”

“coming from the person who asks if it’s possible for you to live in my bathtub. yeah, i’m real mature,”

“but-! i just want to be closer to you…” he whines, swaying his body from left to right, all over again until he’s clinging onto your leg, pressing his cheek to your skin, “don’t you want me to be with you all the time? imagine if i lived in your bathroom,”

“okay, first off, no. how will i have privacy in my bathroom?!”

“you don’t need to! we can know everything about each other!”

“taehyung…”

“…i’m listening…”

sighing, you shift off the rock, feet slowly submerging into the water and taehyung swims back so he can catch you as you fall in. he holds onto you automatically. his hands fall over your waist, drawing you near as you float with the water, the buoyancy keeping you up as well as taehyung’s grip. when you’ve settled nicely, along with adjusting to the temperature, your hands frame his cheeks, leaning in close to kiss his nose, something he finds he likes that he never knew until he met you and you did it to him once before, “you being here is enough for me. and i will always come here for you. have you really thought how it would be like if you constrained yourself in my bathtub? how are you going to swim around properly?”

he opens his mouth to speak, only to realize that… oh shit…

“exactly, you didn’t think of that, did you?”

letting out a deep breath, he shakes his head and proceeds to gaze down, but you lift it back up so he looks at you, “hey, us being in love with each other, doesn’t mean you need to change your lifestyle completely. we’re supposed to compliment each other. not you needing to move from an ocean to a bathtub,”

taehyung sulks, drawing himself closer, pressing his face in your neck as he rasps, “sometimes… i wish you were a mermaid…”

“i do too, taehyung,” you whisper, brushing your hands through his hair, holding him close, “and i would if i was ready but… i’m not ready for that yet…”

“i know,” taehyung murmurs, his chest rumbling against your own as he speaks, all calm and innocent thoughts as he speaks, “i know…”

“but one day, taehyung-ah,” you breathe, the words of what sincerity is, the commitment of love speaks through and taehyung looks at you as you say them, “one day i’ll be ready to be in your world entirely and i’ll swim with you forever,”

“you promise?” taehyung holds up his pinky, his eyes brown and filled with warmth and devotion of a merman, man that’s deeply infatuated with you despite being in different worlds. smiling and reaching up with the same finger, you interlock them and you can see the world in taehyung’s eyes, “promise.”

yes, okay, the malec scene was great, Harry was amazing, BUT CAN WE GIVE A ROUND OF APPLAUSE TO WILL TUDOR because holy shit that guy
yes, Harry was flawless delivering that very emotional scene, but Will perfectly played the cute little puppy, the homicidal maniac with an Evil Plan™ and the lost, broken boy all in one episode somebody get this man an Oscar
he also threatened and killed himself
