your spelling though

In all seriousness, yeah Bastille didn’t win an award, but that will never invalidate their hardwork. They’re still continuing with their day and look forward to seeing their fans. Even if they are slightly saddened, we should just continue to show them our support and love for them/their work! We should always let them know that we appreciate them for what they do!

Vegan Replacements In Spells

Eggs for rebirth- pennyroyal, tansy, ivy, or honeysuckle.

Eggs for general protection- acorn, basil, bay leaves, lavender, cinnamon, rosemary, clover, coriander, ferns, heather, mistletoe, mullein, vervain, st. johns wart, or peony.

Eggs for protection against evil, magic, and psychic attacks- onions, rosemary, yarrow, pennyroyal, ivy, holly, garlic, dragon’s blood, cactus, clove, dill, mugwort, cayenne pepper, or black pepper.

Eggs to protect from nightmares- mullein, lavender, rosemary, anise, dandelion, lemon balm, or catnip.

Honey- honey is used to “sweeten” someone’s feelings towards you, so using sugar, apple honey, stevia, or agave would work just as well and it’ll help save our bee friends!

Milk- almond milk, coconut milk, rice milk, or soy milk. Any of these will work in place of dairy milk. If you want to be more specific in your spells though almond milk can be used for money, prosperity, luck, and wisdom. Coconut milk can be used for protection or spiritual cleansing. Soy milk can be used for prosperity and amplifying psychic abilities. And rice milk can be used for protection and attracting rain.

✨Make sure to be safe and research herbs you want to use if you plan on ingesting or burning them!!✨

I don’t understand it when you find an unformatted fic on on AO3 (aka The Giant Wall of Text).  Is it a phone posting thing?  How can you not notice that you’ve got a fic blob on your hands?   Do people fling their fics at the site and run away, never to look back?

[Creature AU] How They React To Their GF Being a Hybrid (BTS)

Requested by a lovely anon <3

*Don’t own the gif/s yo*

Author: Laymedown

NAMJOON: Hiding your true form from him was very difficult, as it was already hard to hide the marks your wings would appear from, however you lost track of time one night on a full moon. He would be speechless and in shock as your body transformed on it’s own because of the werewolf blood that ran in your veins, exposing a mix of a wolf and lionesque body with bat like wings. Thankfully the Manticore blood that also in your veins allowed you to stay in control. Once his shock passed and he saw how afraid you were, he would reach his hand out to you, knowing underneath you were still the woman he loved.

YOONGI: He knew from the beginning you were a witch, sometimes even teasing you that you were had him under your spell. One night though, you would tell him that you pretty much did have a spell on him, though it wasn’t the one he thought. You reversed the cloaking spell on yourself (even if it were directly on yourself, the spell affected him as well), revealing the rest of your lineage. Not phased at all, he would walk up to you, caressing the dragon scales that covered your body. He would look directly into your golden eyes and tell you that he liked this version of you a lot better.  

HOSEOK: It was out at sea when he met you. He didn’t act like most, as if meeting a mermaid was normal. He would be entranced by you, wanting to learn everything about you. Despite you telling him not to come back, you were really happy when he did. The king of the sea wouldn’t though as he didn’t want you mingling with humans. To protect him, you would have transformed yourself into a sea serpent to challenge the king head on to give him time to escape. He wouldn’t leave until you promised to come find him. He would’ve been at the ocean side every day till the day you emerged from the waves.  

SEOKJIN: Being part Kelie, it was very easy for you to hide your true form from him. It was a rainy day when everything fell from you. If only those two robbers didn’t threaten your love, you could have continued being normal just a little more. He would’ve fallen down on the ground when water began to surround you to only reveal a creature with a body of a horse, but with a beak and feathered wings of an eagle like a Griffin. It scared off the robbers right away, but you were surprised that Seokjin hadn’t. You tried to disappear in a puddle of water when he grabbed a hold of you, begging you not to go.

JIMIN: At first, he didn’t know that you were the creature that saved him in the woods that day. The witch that owed you a favor had done a cloaking spell over you so you could appear human. Just being in his life for a bit was good enough for you, as you knew that today would always come. When the same creatures that attacked Jimin before tried once again, there was no way to hide your true self anymore. With the body of a centaur and the wings of a pegas, you knew you were a sight to take in. As the creatures hissed at you, you picked up Jimin and placed him on your back and took off. Your fear of him being afraid of you didn’t even have time to take root as his exuberant laughter filled the heavens above.  

TAEHYUNG: How you were able to control yourself all this time with being intimate with someone like him was beyond you. It helped that he was dumb enough to miss all of your imp behavior you inherited from your dad. It was your mother’s werecat blood that concerned you the most. The night of a new moon was the night you always tried to ‘go to bed early’ but this time a very persistent Taehyung was not having it. Your cat tail and ears popped out along with small imp like wings, and before he could say anything, you pounced him. You told him that you warned him as you licked his cheek. He would’ve responded with that sexy lip bite he always did as he grabbed your tail, telling you in response that he was going to punish you for keeping your sexiest side hidden.

JUNGKOOK: He never really thought much of why the two of you could only meet at night. He just thought because of your schedule and his, that’s just how it always turned out. One movie night the two of you had, you accidentally fell asleep from exhaustion and didn’t wake up till the next morning when you heard him freaking out. You felt him pick you up in his hands, asking if it were really you. Your gossamer wings quivered with grief as you cried, to shocked to do anything else. You cursed at your mother who begged the queen of the fae to grant her her wish of having a child. You were cursed the moment you were conceived, fairy during the day and vampire at night as the two bloodlines clashed in your body. Your tears stopped when you heard his soothing voice calling out to you. He would let you know that he would keep you safe and that he wanted to know more about the real you.

okay but imagine the matsus playing mario kart with one another? :D

this gets so long, i’m so sorry– but i feel like we all need something lighthearted and silly right now!

  • so there are only four wiimotes, ya know?? and four is the evil number to them. what’s worse? you can’t split a wiimote in half without breaking it! the amount of arguing these babies would get into over this would be ridiculous
  • usually, though, it’d come down to osomatsu, choro, ichi, and jyushi or totty
  • totty would probably be the one to switch spots with jyushi if he really wanted to play. they’d be nice siblings about it
  • osomatsu would be a total bowser jr. player and often be screaming over being in 3rd-5th place…. he’d also fuck the other players over with that cloud and do his darndest to give it to someone else
    once he tried playing mario kart with only his feet while he was picking his nose… it failed horribly and karamatsu had to stop him before he launched the controller into the tv
    ususally ends up in 6th place or something, though, and screams over it
  • karamatsu would try to play, but someone would take his place first. he’s usually seen spectating, cheering someone on, and making sure nobody’s totally murdering each other
    though whenever karamatsu does play, he’s either rosalina or waluigi… he does his best but usually gets in last place…sometimes he doesn’t even finish the race because everyone else is done.
    one time, totty rigged the game so only the female characters would be given better items and boots and nobody knew kara would play as rosalina. needless to say, he won and cried, but then ichi threw his wiimote out the window. everyone was super pissed at him at the end of that race. confident in himself, karamatsu played another round…as waluigi… you know, to be hip and in with the memes…. while the game was still rigged. he got fucked over by everyone throwing items at him and knocking him off. his status of being The Worst™ at mario kart had been restored after that mishap
  • choromatsu would be a luigi player, omg. he’s SUPER good at this game in general, however– when playing with others, he’d get fucked over by absolutely everything. green shells, red shells, bananas, bombs you name it! his solid top 5 place is in shambles and he ends up in at least 7th place every time
    he’s quite confident in his ability to play mario kart, but things like this horribly bog down his confidence in such
  • ichimatsu is the edgelord that plays as dry bones or king boo. he’s the one that likes to fuck everyone over with the blooper ink, as well as be the douchecanoe that knocks his opponents off the course. he somehow manages to sneak to the top, if not completely obliterate his competition.
    truly a force to be reckened with
  • jyushimatsu would be a birdo or yoshi player, 100%. he’s always choosing the fastest vehicles with shit handling but he still manages somehow. the master of throwing bananas and making sure his competition drives into them. people end up getting rather angry at him as a result… all jyushi wants to do is go fast. that’s it. let him live
    always manages to get in the top places and avoid most obstacles.
  • totty would fuckin rig the game and look up cheats to somehow always have blue shells to screw his competition over. his brothers would be absolutely LIVID but wouldn’t figure it out who was doing it for like, a week or two. he also loves playing as princess peach and daisy. occasionally baby peach too. he’s content with getting lower places in in the end as long as he can cause others absolutely relentless and brutal suffering on the race track :3c

The room was humid, feeling like a sauna as Jongdae’s group stood around their guest. The basement of the antique shop was boiling hot from the water heater and limited ventilation. It didn’t help that they all were still in their suits, not bother to change after they returned from their lunch meeting. Jongdae felt the sweat causing his suit to stick to his body uncomfortably. He reached up, loosening his tie so that it hung loosely around his neck.

Elemental Peace Spell

[Part of “A Compendium of Witch War Tips”]

You’ll need an object/s from each element. See: (Alternative And Classical Elemental Representations) That, or you could get a candle representing each element.

Fire

  1. Identify what the problems and conflicts are. Have a clear and solid understanding of what it is you’re getting rid of. You may say them aloud.
  2. Gather the fire element in your hands, and say “By the power of fire, these conflicts burn to ash. As it is my will, so shall it be.”
  3. Send off the fire element to do its work.

Water

  1. Identify the people/parties involved in the conflict. You may say their names aloud.
  2. Gather the water element in your hands, and say “By the power of water, let peace overflow, and wash away unrest. Let friendship and harmony take place. As it is my will, so shall it be.”
  3. Send off the water element to do its work.

Air

  1. Think of the same people for the Water part.
  2. Gather the air element in your hands, and say “By the power of air, I blow away all troubles. Let all concerned communicate with clarity so peace may thrive. As it is my will, so shall it be.”
  3. Send off the air element to do its work - perhaps even by blowing.

Earth

  1. Visualize a peaceful future - one wherein your spell has succeeded in incinerating the conflict, wash away unrest and blown out the trouble between the involved parties. Feel the happiness and contentment as though your spell has already succeeded.
  2. Gather the earth element, and all the remaining energy in the area in your hands, and say “By the power of earth, I ground this situation. Let harmony be restored, and things remain in such state of order.”
  3. Imprint your visualization/power thought into this condensation of energy. If you feel the visualization has been saturated enough into your being, you may blow your intent out into the ball - imprinting your intent onto it.
  4. Say “As it is my will, so shall it be.”
  5. Send off the energy to do its work.

Chant:
“Conflict, ill will, terror fly/So peace, harmony and love may thrive.
Peace. Peace. Peace.”

while dwelling on the visualization earlier. Keep at it until you feel all that can be done has been done.

To: Anastasia Steele

Anastasia I am annoyed that as soon as you put some distance between us, you communicate openly and honestly with me. Why can’t you do that when we’re together? Yes, I’m rich. Get used to it. Why shouldn’t I spend money on you? We’ve told your father I’m your boyfriend, for heaven’s sake. Isn’t that what boyfriends do? As your Dom, I would expect you to accept whatever I spend on you with no argument. Incidentally, tell your mother too. I don’t know how to answer your comment about feeling like a whore. I know that’s not what you’ve written, but it’s what you imply. I don’t know what I can say or do to eradicate these feelings. I’d like you to have the best of everything.  I work exceptionally hard, so I can spend my money as I see fit. I could buy you your heart’s desire, Anastasia, and I want to. Call it redistribution of wealth if you will. Or simply know that I would not, could not ever think of you in the way you described, and I’m angry that’s how you perceive yourself. For such a bright, witty, beautiful young woman you have some real self-esteem issues, and I have a half a mind to make an appointment for you with Dr. Flynn. I apologize for frightening you. I find the thought of instilling fear in you abhorrent. Do you really think I’d let you travel in the hold? I offered you my private jet for heaven’s sake. Yes it was a joke, a poor one obviously. However, the fact is – the thought of you bound and gagged turns me on (this is not a joke – it’s true). I can lose the crate – crates do nothing for me. I know you have issues with gagging, we’ve talked about that and if/ when I do gag you, we’ll discuss it. What I think you fail to realize is that in Dom/sub relationships it is the sub that has all the power. That’s you. I’ll repeat this – you are the one with all the power. Not I. In the boathouse you said no. I can’t touch you if you say no – that’s why we have an agreement – what you will and won’t do. If we try things and you don’t like them, we can revise the agreement. It’s up to you – not me. And if you don’t want to be bound and gagged in a crate, then it won’t happen. I want to share my lifestyle with you. I have never wanted anything so much. Frankly I’m in awe of you, that one so innocent would be willing to try. That says more to me than you could ever know. You fail to see I am caught in your spell, too, even though I have told you this countless times. I don’t want to lose you. I am nervous that you’ve flown three thousand miles to get away from me for a few days, because you can’t think clearly around me. It’s the same for me Anastasia. My reason vanishes when we’re together – that’s the depth of my feeling for you.

I understand your trepidation. I did try to stay away from you; I knew you were inexperienced, though I would never have pursued you if I had known exactly how innocent you were – and yet you still manage to disarm me completely in a way that nobody has before. Your email for example: I have read and re-read it countless times trying to understand your point of view. Three months is an arbitrary amount of time. We could make it six months, a year? How long do you want it to be? What would make you comfortable? Tell me. I understand that this is a huge leap of faith for you. I have to earn your trust, but by the same token, you have to communicate with me when I am failing to do this. You seem so strong and self-contained, and then I read what you’ve written here, and I see another side to you. We have to guide each other Anastasia, and I can only take my cues from you. You have to be honest with me, and we have to both find a way to make this arrangement work. You worry about not being submissive. Well maybe that’s true. Having said that, the only
time you do assume the correct demeanor for a sub is in the playroom. It seems that’s the one place where you let me exercise proper control over you, and the only place you do as you’re told. Exemplary is the term that comes to mind. And I’d never beat you black and blue. I aim for pink. Outside the playroom, I like that you challenge me. It’s a very novel and refreshing experience, and I wouldn’t want to change that. So yes, tell me what you want in terms of more. I will endeavor to keep an open mind, and I shall try and give you the space you need and stay away from you while you are in Georgia. I look forward to your next email. In the meantime, enjoy yourself. But not too much.

I’m an elitist and only roleplay with those who are -good- in my eyes. (If you write full sentences and have proper grammar ) To some people I come across as a jackass because I won’t roleplay with them. But really, who wants to roleplay with someone who goes “oh yea unf unf hip thrust” and thinks that’s an acceptable reply?
Witch Tip: For spells that require a candle to burn down.

I’ve seen a lot of spells that require a candle to burn down and expire on its own to fully cast the spell. I’ve always avoided these spells because I don’t have the time to leave a candle on that long and like most logical people, I wouldn’t leave a candle on unattended.

I happen to be a fan of tea lights and small votive candles, but even these can have up to 8+ hours of burn time. Not convenient for someone who works 40+ hours a week.

But…not all tea lights take so long to burn down. Most places like Walmart, IKEA, or Michaels sell tea lights in packs of 100. Why? Because they burn out fast! Tea light candles that come in large quantities will expire in about 3 hours, sometimes less.

The best part is these always come in packs of white, so if a spell calls for a color candle, remember white can substitute for any color. If you really want to be color accurate with your spells though, you can take a few of those tea lights and put them on a candle warmer or even a coffee burner and let them become molten. When they do, just add some colorant. You can even add herbs into the wax at that point. Then just let them solidify and you’re good to go.

(kind of rant, read at own risk and w/e)

(didnt want to put under read more because it would be hard to read on my blog)

okay so ive said this before (when the whole baek-laughs-at-black-face-thing (which turned out to be fake) a while back and im only going to say one more time.

Things regarding race and racial slurs are not taught around most parts of East Asia. And when I say East Asia, I especially mean China, Korea and Japan (though japan seems to be more open with the rest of the world). I honestly hadn’t even heard of the ‘n-word’ until I was 14 and im only 15 now. Even then, I’d only heard it in rap music and I didnt know I wasnt supposed to say it. This meaning, I have also said the 'n-word’ and probably unknowingly offended lots and I do apologize but at that time. I really. Really. Did. not. know. it was a bad thing

I, myself havent even watched the 'jongin n-word’ video and i really don’t plan to because being from Korea, which is like, super closed-off compared to Hong Kong, there is a VERY HIGH CHANCE that Jongin did not know the meaning of that word. Did not know it was offensive. And did not intend for it to offend ANYONE. 

This has bugged me for a while because I’m not sure a lot of you realize that things about race (skin colour and again, racial slurs) aren’t that wildly talked about around here. When the members say things like 'Jongin’s skin is dark’, they are NOT making fun of him, degrading him or being offensive to him. They are just say that his skin is dark. And it is. They arent lying. YOu guys are always quick to say “wow that was SO racist” and send hate and flame when you dont understand that commenting on skin colour is very damn normal here. Its the same as saying 'wow, you gained a little weight’ or 'you cut your hair!’. Their intention is not malicious or hurt-intending in the slightest. (also, the members are close. they joke around about each others’ skintone because THEY ARE CLOSE WITH EACH OTHER. i joke around with my friends too. im sure you do too) 

I see this so much. Especially with the international fandom and it makes me so mad because i want to yell this out

they are not trying to be racist

they are not trying to offend you

89% of the time, they dont even know what theyre saying could be offensive to anybody and i can say that confidently because i know grown chinese adults that do not know that the 'n-word’ is offensive. When I tell them it is, and that they shouldnt say it, they get so shocked and guilty and the genuine shame i see on their faces tells me how much they didnt know how offensive they were being

Im not saying jongin should be let off the hook for saying that, cause he shouldnt but at least try to keep in mind that he had no bad intentions. He probably heard it, thought it sounded cool, and said it (as i do recall him saying that he enjoyed rap music in the past)

Heathens (Part 1)

Pairing: Bucky x Reader

Warnings: Cursing, Violence, Vulgarity

Words: 1.7k


You knew you were in love the moment he landed on that damn car. Christ was that hot. As ridiculous as it sounded, his strut as he waltzed down the front of the vehicle did things to you that had nothing to do with fear; Y/E/C eyes were fixated on him with curiosity. God, he looked good. Smoke, and gunfire, and the breeze brushing his hair to one side – you were so excited to get close to that tank of a man.

Steve and you had known each other for some time now, though it was less as friends and more as “I see you are also super-powered, that’s neat, stay far, far away from me” acquaintanceship. Natasha and you, on the other hand, had worked many a job together; she was probably one of the few people that you would say bordered on friends with you, though your interactions were all pretty professional. Regardless, you cared enough to notice they were being destroyed on this bridge by hordes of people; you didn’t mind stepping in to buy them some time for a counter attack – especially when your opponent looked as good as this guy did.
