  1. I’ve always wanted one of those wands! When I was younger I made some for me and one of my brother’s, but I’ve never gotten a real one. Always really loved Hermione’s, and second would probably be Luna’s. Given they’re two of my all time favorite characters from the series as well, I could see myself owning one or both of them someday Yay on your hubby for such a magical gift :D
  2. Hearing Sky’s comment, Sin’s shiver turns into a shutter, remembering his own less-than-favorable experience with a tentacula in his student years. “Yeah,” he stammers, “about that... I think I’ll pass! I’ve done my best to avoid the things altogether for well over a decade.” Sindor laughs, then pinches and tickles Sky playfully behind the arm where others might not catch it amongst all the hubbub. ”You’re our hero, Alton!”
  3. Prof. Aloyarc scurries into the castle from helping with some unexpected groundskeeping duties as the inclement weather came storming in. ”Brrr!” He shivers, waving his wand to give the slushy, snowy slop all over his robes a sensible dry-off before tromping through the entrance hall. “What a whirlwind it is out there.” Giving a shake of his hair and fixing it back into place, Sin looks around to see take note of who else is around.
  4. Atlantis: The Lost Empire ”—A piece of cake, is it? Well, let's see how you deal with this little slice.”
  5. Moana “—I love your eyebrows. We'll call them Frieda and Kahlo. If Brooke Shields married Groucho Marx, their child would have your eyebrows!”
  6. The Wizard of Oz “—I cannot for the life of me understand why small children take so long to grow up. I think they do it deliberately, just to annoy me.”
  7. Once in a while we go to send a text/email/chat message where we second guessing the words we’re writing and either edit or perhaps even completely delete. This spell could come in handy, perhaps, in a situation where something is said out loud without thinking where the message itself isn’t particularly constructive or useful to any party involved. Hard to say if this could become a slippery slope, abusing the ability to confuse somebody just because you’ve said something that you wish you hadn’t and want a little extra means toward keeping them from remembering all the details/convincing them they’ve misremembered. That being said, I do think there is a time and a place where it could be in everyone’s best interest, and if I ever felt that to be the case I would most certainly take advantage of the opportunity. While I understand it’s a very different matter: I’m recalling times when someone goes to say something, then pulls the “No, never mind.” At that point, the other person is usually curious and intrigued and really wants to know. Someone could argue this was “roping them in”, but often times I do believe people don’t realize until they’re midway through starting their point that maybe it’s not a great idea. Sometimes it’s hard for me to let it go when this happens, because I can be very curious, but I’ve learned over the years to just let people choose whether or not it’s appropriate for the time and place, staying silent if that’s what’s best for the current situation in their mind.
  8. I have a tendency to rush through things. When people ask me my worst habit? Eating WAY too quickly (sorry, not sorry)! I have a big appetite — both for food and for life — and enjoy devouring anything and everything I love, post hastily. Many times this doesn’t bother me. In truth, there are times I try to do things (like eating) slowly, and I don’t enjoy the process as much. What can I say?! I really just prefer to gobble up the good I want and then sit back, relaxed and satisfied. One area I’ll write about here where I’ve chosen to slow down is showering. Like so many other aspects of my routine (even though I’m DEFINITELY a care free sing-in-the-shower kinda squirrel and don’t tend to feel “tense” when I’m showering), slowing down in this area is one way that I very much do appreciate. Taking a bath or shower is frequently associated with not only cleanliness and self care, but also self pampering. Slowing down this part of my routine has helped me really relax and appreciate that “me-time”, and it’s something I’d definitely be inclined to continue practicing in the future! <3
  9. “— Ivory, alabaster, porcelain, snow, Cotton and parchment and eggshell and bone. Coconut, daisy, salt, linen and white. All cream colored pearl, like a moon in the night.”
  10. I’d use this spell on footwear. Tired of having to walk through rainy weather only in boots without getting my other shoes {and then of course my socks} sopping wet. I can handle a damp outfit, but damp feet are not my favorite!!
  11. While this isn't technically allowed: Typically speaking?/Now? I would summon my partner. As much as I enjoy my alone time --and while we can sometimes get on each other's nerves-- I never feel like we're spending "too much" time together, and when he's not around I always miss him. He and I have both mentioned that we regularly forget the other person isn't there when we're apart. I'll go to say something to him feeling like he's supposed to be sitting in his chair or laying on his bed {same room, but we sleep WAY better having our own beds *huzzah!*} so if I had to pick one "thing" or person to summon here if I could ... it would definitely be him. Admittedly a bit codependent, but I'm like that with my friends too!! On the flip-side, if I had to choose an actual object, I'd probably start summoning our coffee in the morning. Currently I go downstairs to turn the pot on, then get my cuddles in before we really come-to. Would be SO swell to not have to groggily make my way to that task, and instead be served my morning caffeine via magical persuasion :D
  12. “—You may say We grows seasonals of transparency, yet there’s reason We grows annuals of opaque.” - C.Y.M. The ‘Potion of Inscne’ [“INSH-kna”] gives its drinker power to shift the quality of their expressive gender to any area on the spectrum between the spirit of feminine and masculine energies. This was discovered, through a necessary request of assistance from her parents, by 11 year old Irish muggle, Eilís Ryan [“AY-lish” or “EYE-lish” meaning ‘Pledged to God’, corresponding with the English name Elizabeth, sometimes Alice; “RY-en”, derived from the Gaelic word “Rí” meaning ‘King’], whose neighbor, Miss Cemphra Maebh (18th century Herbologist), was the notorious Witch believed to have spent her post educational life Imping crafts of plant and baking Magic into the presence of children labeled “without the sense.” Ryan (who was later referred to by many as “Our King” or “King from God”, as her name implies) grew up to be a powerful influence on both communities. Miss Maebh fell off of the radar at a young age. Appreciated only after by notepads left behind containing memory fragments of any developments or progress along her quest toward cultivating the divide between the world she grew up with and non-magic people through the local youth. Notes which some have argued were riddled with signs of mental insanity. There are those who still say that the children Cemphra spent her time with were either falsely “lead” into their successes (that it came directly from Maebh herself to be used as evidential ‘proof’ of her own opinions), or at best that her young friends only showed signs of unusual ability “by accident” or some other form of “coincidence.” INGREDIENTS: Brigid’s plant (Dandelion) Rosemary Valerian root Blackberry Vinegar INSTRUCTIONS: Inscne Potions cannot be made by a single individual, nor by uneven numbers.*{1} Otherwise, this is a relatively simple potion to create with a surprising amount of flexibility. It is essentially impossible to fail if basic instructions are followed. All who are involved must split themselves into two groups: one 'feminine', the other 'masculine'. Both sides must be represented. This is not pendant on an individuals physical sex —which was found to be irrelevant— but asks each person to decide where the spirit of their energy dwells in that moment. Meaning one could represent the other essence during subsequent batches, rather than always being bound to a single perspective. One requirement being this may not be decided mindlessly (i.e. without any level of consideration). If not chosen with intentionality, common knowledge says the potion will refuse to benefit those who ignore this factor or anyone working alongside them. Most scholars suggest this is the case even if they technically have aligned with the “correct” side during the encounter. This is seen as a sign of disrespect. Contrariwise, those whose intentions are pure will never be ignored by Magic. Both teams must boil their own small amount of water. The feminine side adding Valerian root*{2} while stirring counter-clockwise, the masculine side adding Brigid’s plant while stirring clockwise. Remove from heat and cool to a drinkable temperature. The masculine side should then add rosemary to their brew, which at this point can be transferred into the Valerian water at any time. From here, the potion is ready to be strained for use or to be stored, with or without delay. Blackberry vinegar must be added —only by a member of this specific feminine group— immediately prior to consumption (within a half-minute). Effects will take place in a matter of moments, lasting on average approximately 2-3 hours. *{1} the exception to this rule is when preparers form in multiples of three (the only time uneven groupings has been practiced successfully) which typically brews incredibly potent batches —particularly when numbers are also in balance: i.e. 3 and 3 or 9 and 9 vs. 3 and 6 or 6 and 12, though structures such as 1 and 2 or 7 and 5 would also be acceptable in this case— regardless of the dominating gender *{2} it doesn’t matter how little or how much any ingredient is used in this potion. In fact, if other prompts are followed appropriately, the incorporation of additional ingredients for preference of taste has been known to work with equal effectiveness
  13. Tea Tree (Melaleuca alternifolia) is native to Queensland and New South Wales, Australia. The soft, pale yellow to colorless, linear leaves cultivated from this small tree/shrub alternate and are sometimes scattered or whorled. It is a dominant species where it grows —typically along streams and swampy flats— which offers many antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal benefits across a wide range of uses. This plant is a member of the myrtle family. With a strong, fresh, and clarifying camphoraceous smell, the essential oil of Tea Tree is an effective healing agent against infections, calms swelling and redness of skin, and can be used to treat such things as insect bites and stings, toothache and other oral conditions, blemishes, ear infection, lice, a cough, and burns, etc.
