For Inconspicuous Spells

gothiccharmschool:

victorian-witch:

Use tea bags to create incognito spells!

You could buy pre-made blends of herbal tea that suit your needs, then open up the tea bag and supplement it with small amounts of additional ingredients and close it back up with needle and thread or a staple. Write the spell/symbol/sigil/etc on the outside of the bag or on the little tag. Then steep and consume if you’ve used all non-toxic ingredients, or add to a bath, etc. You could even put in it a bowl and scry with the liquid and do some tasseomancy with the tea leaves later!

You could also make your own tea bags with coffee filters
or parchment paper for cooking, just fold the ingredients inside and like before, staple or sew it closed! Sewing it closed adds the extra benefit of letting you dangle your own little tag off the end of the knot you tie and using a corresponding color of thread.

Now that I think of it, if the elements are your thing, you’ve got all the elements covered in one item: the heat of the tea for fire, the steam and fragrance for air, the herbs for earth, and the water for well … water! Similarly, this could be used as an offering if you use ingredients that appeal to whoever you’re making an offering to.

This is a damn clever idea.

Honeycomb Cuff

shornamental:

I’m going to preface this pattern by saying that crochet does not lend itself well to doing hexagons in rows.  In the round, sure, but hammering this out into rows was tricky.  But I eventually got it.  :)

I can’t tell you how many hexagon/honeycomb patterns I tried.  It was many, and they all sucked.  But then I remembered picot.  Normally I hate doing picot, but they got the point across.

SYSTOLE (@AO3)

The phone in the downstairs hall wakes him at some hazy lightless hour well past midnight.

He wonders what the point is, and it rings.

He wonders if it matters, and it rings again.

He wonders whether he still has something left to lose, and he concedes that there are pieces of him that could yet go missing, and he drags himself out of the bed.

He very nearly breaks his neck on the stairs; his quick right hand seizes the banister and saves him from everything but a sizable bruise on his knee.  He has one telephone trill left.  He swings around the foot of the staircase; he knows this house from top to bottom, but in the dark its contours change.  The phone rings; he can almost feel the soundwaves thrumming through the air; he can certainly feel them pounding at his skull.

His hand wraps itself around the invisible receiver, and he lifts it to his ear.

“Shit-fuck,” a voice says, a voice ribboned through with choking wetness—tears? blood?—and a harsh, hoarse tremble.  “Are you there?”

FUCK YEAH FUCK YEAH I CAN’T WAIT TO READ THIS
