Isn't it a little disingenuous to explain why you think your perspective is right and anyone who doesn't agree is wrong to the Jewish people who disagree with you on the goblin matter, but when exactly one person comes forward agreeing you act like there's universal consent on the matter?

we actually have maybe a dozen or more messages from jewish people in our inbox right now with varying degrees of agreement/disagreement to us, but we don’t want to publish all the ones that say “hey i’m jewish and you’re 100000% right!” because on this blog we value discussion - if i’m wrong, i want people to come along and have that discussion with me.

you certainly have a point, but i am also far more willing to side with somebody who says “hey this is harmful to our community” than somebody who says “hey it’s ok” because i believe that valuing the opinions of the harmed is pretty important, and i can’t speak for any other communities than the ones i’m part of, but i have seen dozens of trans women tell me things that literally and personally harm me are fine, and i fear that this can happen in other communities too.

i do feel that you’re being a little unfair - i don’t think i’ve said anything close to “you’re wrong; you’re oppressed and you don’t realise it” any of the people writing in, but i have tried to explain what i’m trying to say further - most of the people we answered were like “hey i don’t think JK Rowling did this intentionally so let’s not hold her completely responsible for this” which, y’know, i agree with, but isn’t the point i was making.

EDIT: also, i’m pretty sure the people who came forward to say “yup that’s antisemitic” outnumber the people who disagree, but that COULD just be demographics.

thanks for your input though, and i’ll make sure to try extra hard to avoid these pitfalls in future

Remmy would like to say hello to all frogs and friends. He would also like to invite them for a nap. It is his favorite thing, after all.

Hi Remmy! 😊🐸😊

Voigt says thank you very much! She will most certainly accompany you for a nap, one of her favourite activities! 😀

Voigt sees you are already wearing your soft fluffy napping jacket and you have found a comfy spot to nap on! She sends you a happy smile and a big bag of cat treaties! (Best not to nap on an empty stomach!) 😀🐸🐱

Gemstones and Crystals

Gem stones hold onto energies. It is this which makes them so helpful in magical tasks and healing.They act as containers for magical energy. This makes gem stones ideal as altar tools and charms for spells.For healing, stones are willing to have dis-ease transferred into them. They then hold onto it until it can be safely flushed away. Healing stones don’t need to be gem stones – river and lake stones work wonderfully.This ability to hold onto energy also means that new gem stones aren’t “fresh.” They are holding energies from past owners, people who mined them, people who polished and set and sold them, and people who held them in the shop before you picked them up. So take care to cleanse all new stones thoroughly before using them.

To cleanse an object is just as the word implies—you are cleaning it. The difference is, you’re not cleaning it on a physical level (though you can certainly do that first). What you’re attempting to do is ‘clean’ it on a spiritual level—on an energy level.

There are several ways to cleanse an object:

  • Burn a cleansing incense like sage, and run the object through the smoke
  • Bury it in the earth for a while, or in a bowl of salt/dirt/cornmeal
  • Soak it in salt water, or sprinkle/spray it
  • Hold it for a while under running water
  • Wave it over a candle flame, or actually put it into the fire
  • Sweep away negativity with a besom (blessed broom)

Be practical about it— you don’t want to soak metal in salt water overnight or you’ll rust it; you don’t want to put a fabric pouch of herbs anywhere near fire. Use your judgment. But it’s a good practice to get into to cleanse new things before using them for spiritual purposes, or to occasionally cleanse things like your jewelry, crystals, divination or altar tools, especially if they’ve been used a lot, or sitting unused for a while.

Many ancient cultures believed that stones contained a life force and used them to conduct rituals and for healing. It is believed that the lost city of Atlantis used crystal power extensively. Stones have also played an integral role in various religions. The most ancient jewelry was found in Queen Pu-Abi’s tomb at Ur in Sumeria, dating back to the third millennium BC. Ancient priests believed crystals to be a force that defied all evil. The Egyptians engraved an eye of lapis lazuli, symbolizing Ra the sun god, and to the Cherokee Indians crystal is a sacred stone used for healing.

It is not necessary for a person to possess special abilities to work with crystals and gems, all you need is the intention and the desire to perform a particular type of magic to enhance your life, the work is done with the energy of the crystal or gem, and you are the conduit. Seen as a connecting force between earth and ether, crystals are used for crystal ball readings, scrying, spell casting and invoking.

Many people also Consecrate and Charge their crystals after Cleansing. You may choose to do so immediately, later or not at all.

For almost everything else, just cleansing is enough. Some ways to consecrate an item include:

  • simply say a prayer over it and dedicate the use of the tool to your Gods
  • If you keep oils that are cleansed, charged and consecrated, you can anoint an object with those oils and blessing symbols.
  • If you work a lot with the four elements you may wish to consecrate it by Air, Earth, Fire and Water in ritual: run it through incense smoke, sprinkle some salt on it, pass it over a fire flame and sprinkle some water on it.

You can consecrate anything but do remember this: once consecrated, the item is sacred, and should be treated as such. 

Charging requires raising a bit of energy and directing it into the object. Once again, the method you choose can largely depend on your preferences or on the item you’re charging.

  • Rub candles with oil repeatedly
  • Dance, chant, meditate, etc. to raise power then pour that energy in
  • Put the object out under the sun all day to charge it with solar power*
  • Put the object out under the full moon all night to charge it with lunar power*
  • Use the energy you have accumulated in your tools**
  • Lay the item on a healthy crystal for a day or a few days so it will absorb energy

Like consecrating, charging isn’t always necessary.

There are a multitude of ways to use your stones, such as placing an amethyst under your pillow for a comfortable dreamed filled sleep, you may like to carry a small crystal or gem in your bag or pocket. Place crystals around your plants to aid growth, or put one next to your computer to diffuse the electromagnetic energy. Keep one on your desk when you are working to inspire you, use a gem or crystal to help you organise scattered thoughts and to help you think more clearly. If you are feeling a little run down, wear one as an amulet to repel dense energies and protect your psyche. Place a crystal in each area of your home to create harmony.

Keep a crystal and gemstone journal if you want, write down everything you do, the type of crystal or gem and its properties, how you used it and how you felt afterwards. When you used it and what the results were, also take note if you find that one crystal works better than another, document your first impressions or images associated with each crystal. If you keep a Book of Shadows, your crystal and gemstone journal can become part of it.

How would you react if April tried to start a tickle fight with you? (It certainly doesn't sound like her, but let's suspend our disbelief, shall we?)

Good luck on that. It’s very hard to tickle us.

But since we are suspending disbelief…I’d get her back, of course. Never dish out the tickles if you can’t take it. 

anonymous asked:

I know weaving is associated with Athena, so do you think sewing would be a good thing for her follower to do as a hobby/act of worship?

I tend to associate sewing more with Hestia, but if you want to dedicate sewing to Athene then you certainly can. 

delusionalglow  asked:

Hello. So I was watching Shingeki no Kjion (Attack on Titan) and got inspired. Could you possibly create a warrior prompt that has a SnK vibe? Thank you. By the way, you've helped me out of writer's block multiple times. Thank you.

Certainly! Look out for it as tomorrow’s prompt! And I’m glad to hear that I’ve helped you out! Thank you for being here. (Also, are you watching the new season? How is it? After waiting for three years, I haven’t been too enticed to start it back up.)

purequeenoftheimpure  asked:

I just finished 'Important Lessons'. Just one question. Do you intend to continue, or is it done forever? I just... my heart. Ouch. Also a small request, would you tag me in all your fics please? Your writing is amazing.

It is not done forever (I know I left you hanging on maximum angst.) ~ Don’t worry, there is at least one more chapter left, perhaps two depending on the amount of writing it takes to get to the ending I have planned out. <3 

I can certainly tag you in future chapters! Thanks so much for reading, I’m glad you like it!  :3

There are so many different storylines because ultimately everything is connected. But at first what you’re seeing is all these different characters who could absolutely be the stars of their own show. So it looks like they are completely disconnected and have no effect on each other whatsoever. - Samuel Barnett

Nineteen Years and Eight Hours Later

Harry Potter’s eyes shot open.

“Draco! Draco, come back to bed! You have to hear about this ridiculous dream I just had!”

Here, in case I haven’t quite driven the point home:

Prompt: “Kiss me.” 
For the anon, hope you enjoy (: request a fic?

As soon as they get out of the car, Dean wonders why the hell they thought this would be a good idea. Maybe he’d known from the beginning that this was crazy but he just didn’t want to admit it to himself. It was the price he had to pay for bragging about having a date to Benny and pretty much everyone in his birthplace. He’d ended up begging Castiel to pretend to be his boyfriend- some people already mistook them for a couple anyways, so he thought it wouldn’t be too hard. Now he feels like he might have been wrong.

“Maybe we should just leave.” He says as he stands beside Castiel. “I’m sorry for dragging you into all this.” Dean stares at the festival lights spread all through the large trees in the backyard and feels his hands shaking a little. “Or I’ll just tell everyone that I-”

“Dean,” Castiel says and looks at him thoughtfully. “I told you it’s alright. It will be fine, trust me.” He holds out his hand to him, nodding at the field with tables and many people. “Let’s go.”
