Hiya, my name is Holly. I go by Kitsune, Kitsu, Agaru Tomo, and a couple other names. I enjoy writing--both my original stories and fanfiction.
I'm really into crochet, and have way too many projects going at once.
I also do some drawing, and I have a very sketchily updated comic. I also roleplay online, and I'd be happy to toss ideas back and forth.
Anyways, send me a message any time.
If you do not reblog this, you are in fact lying.
Hey, don’t you fucking scroll down
Two kinds of people in this world. The people that admit to mourning the death of a fictional character and the dirty fucking liars
To those closest to me, you know where I’ll be
I wish I could have gotten to know you better. My anxiety used to be so bad I couldn’t set foot on my school grounds without hyperventilating and sobbing uncontrollably. I also spent an entire school year as the focus of the majority of the rest of the class’s teasing. I picked my nose a few times so a group decided to watch me from the playground with binoculars (I sat away from the main structure most of the time). The girls used to ask things like “You know you wore those pants yesterday, right?”
After the teasing had mostly blown over, I invited a couple of the girls for my b-day party. Our house wasn’t finished, and she took pictures and brought them to school to show people.
People are stupid and cruel. I know you don’t know me at all, but I can kind of understand what you’re going through. I’m rambling, and I now you prolly don’t care, but I wanted to let you know that you can talk to me any time if you want. I’m in Michigan in the U.S., and I work nights, but I’m online pretty much all the time. Message me if you ever wanna talk to someone else. If not, just know that I loved your Darcy, and how different she was from other ones. You’ve inspired me, and I may start rping her as well!
You are loved. Good luck.
Singer uses her music video to intriguingly show how fake performers are in videos
Hungarian musician Boggie sits still and sings for her latest music video… So what makes it interesting?
As she performs, her video editor retouches her skin, hair, facial features, and lighting during the song so that by the end everything looks “right”…

NEVER APOLOGIZE FOR CAPS. PHOENICIAN SPELLS. ARAMAIC SPELLS. LANGUAGES MUGGLES DON’T KNOW ANYMORE THAT HAVE BEEN PRESERVED THROUGH WIZARDING SPELLS IN LITTLE POCKETS OF THE WORLD. SOURCE LANGUAGES NO ONE KNOWS HOW TO ADAPT OR CHANGE ANYMORE BECAUSE THE LANGUAGES HAVE DIED AND PEOPLE ARE AFRAID TO CAUSE LIKE, A NUCLEAR FALLOUT. IM SO EXCITED THANKS FOR THIS.

Witches in secret pockets of Morocco who’ve been casting spells with ancient spices long before wands came about. Warlocks in Egypt who knew the double, magical, meaning behind hieroglyphics. A dead language? Latin and Ancient Greek have NOTHING on hieroglyphs. The veritable cacophany of ideas and spells and magic that the trading routes brought in. The Phoenecians with their many-striped sailboats proudly displayed Persian potion ingredients alongside spelled fishing nets woven by Palestinian wizards. Syrian magical folk meet Greek ones, and realize they can best communicate in the Ancient Greek all serious magical students learn. Curly heads bent over ancient spellbooks, and people stare as they converse in a language not spoken for hundreds of years.
Excuse you but can we not forget the jewish lore masters, poring over their tomes in hebrew and aramaic, preserved from their exiled homeland into the diaspora.
And the development of a syncretic magic in yiddish that mixes the subtle lore and subtle word power of the exiled levantines with the raw brute force of germanic magics. — how else did the golem?
DIASPORA SYNCRETIC MAGICS
jewish wizards offering house elves clothes in accordance with the slave laws
jewish wizards using golems as grunt labor
Yes to the Yiddish spells, too ;-)
Jewish wizards offering clothing to house elves and then constantly debating among themselves whether using a golem or other magically-created entity with some semblance of sentience for manual labor for years or decades is essentially the same thing as keeping a magical being for the same purpose.
See also: endless debates about whether one can use magic on Shabbat, and what sorts of magic qualify as “work”. Like, does it count if you enchant an object ahead of time?
Also debates over the extent to which Divination counts as the “witchcraft” detailed in the Tanach. Actually, I bet there’d be scholars compiling detailed tractates about which spells are kosher, using extensive biblical commentary.
JEWISH WIZARDS HAVING THEIR OWN EXTENDED TALMUD. HOW HAS THIS NEVER OCCURRED TO ME BEFORE??
Magic is a natural extension of the self; Therefore, one should be allowed to use magic on Shabbos. You might put restrictions on what kind of magic, and brewing potions (even ones that don’t require heat) and using wands…
I wrote a paper for a Harry Potter conference on foreign wizardry and how the systems of magic must have evolved to be completely separate entities that have very little in common. We’re only seen a TINY portion of the wizarding world and for the most part it’s Western European. I like to imagine Bill Weasley had to extensively train for cursebreaking in Egypt, because you can’t just waltz into a tomb, wave your wand, shout Latin and expect it to work.
I also love the idea of foreign magics being a bit wonky in a duel against each other because they’re not quite compatible. Like, it’s really hard to block a spell from a foreign wizard because you don’t understand exactly what you’re blocking against.
God, so many foreign wizard feels.
But seriously, this is big for me. I’ve been around 138 and such and now I’m getting down there!
I’m kinda mad that I was so upset about my weight of all things, god knows I have other serious issues. But I’ve been at 120 for most of my late teens and young adult life, and since my BF moved in (he’s an amazing cook) I’d gained weight….
But it’s warming up and I can ride my bike, and maybe get a butt as amazing as his! He used to bike up to 10 miles a day to stay out of the house. I know no one is really gonna take notice of this, let alone reblog and comment. I mean, I’m not that heavy, and there are others to whom getting down to 131 would be a much bigger deal, for their self-image and their health.
But I’ve always had issues with my body. My depression makes me feel worthless as a human being when it kicks in, and it’s not that far a leap to start hating my body as well, even though the people around me and that love me have always told me that I’m beautiful. But those comments can get lost under all the shit I heap upon my self.
I know that weight less shouldn’t make me feel so much better about myself, you can be beautiful at any weight as long as you’re healthy, but the correlation between how much you weigh and how other people see you is so ingrained…. Anyways. I’m happy. I’ve been stressed so losing weight has been hard, but I’m doing it!
I remember posting somewhere once in a thread about why girls aren’t exploited in animation anymore where some guy said, “all the disney girls are drawn to be generally attractive, but I don’t think there are any eye-candy men… or are there? Are there any Disney men that lots of girls like?” and I mentioned Roger. Tons of girls replied agreeing with me and the original guy was like “wait, Roger? from 101 Dalmatians? What’s attractive about him, he’s tall and lanky and has a big nose, he isn’t muscley at all! Wouldn’t you all prefer Gaston or something? Or do you girls think his big nose is indicative of something else?” and I was like “no, you idiot, he’s a silly, goofy guy who likes animals and can play a bunch of instruments, that’s why he’s attractive. What’s the matter with you? Gaston, seriously?”
This is why we need more girls in animation. And more guys like Roger apparently.
This is why I laugh my ass of whenever dudes talk about how men are “objectified” by the media too. Because 9 times out of 10, what men think is “women objectifying men” are characters like Gaston.
And Gaston is NOT a woman-driven fantasy. Gaston is a male wish fulfillment fantasy. Gaston is not what women want, he is what men want to be. He is hyper-masculinity to an extreme degree, dripping with sexism and testosterone. The fact that men think that Gaston is what women want says an awful lot about those men.
While I don’t want to generalize, female fans tend to prefer a very different kind of male hero. We like the Rogers, the Milos, the Hercules. Genuinely kind, often awkward men who are sometimes vulnerable and respectful to women.
Yes, this is a generalization. I own up to that. But I think it’s important to remember that there is often VERY big difference between what MEN want to be and what women WANT in our media.
Reblogging this again because fucking this. And hell, even the muscley dudes (see: Khal Drogo, Hercules, Thor, Captain America) are loved, not because they are muscley, but because they are sweet and loving and adorable. We love Thor because his mispronounces “Hubble” as “Hooble,” not because of what he can do with a hammer.
Reblogging for the awesome comments.
Sorry, I’m still stuck on that Gordon Ramsay as the Potions Master post.
"We’re going to use fresh, vibrant dragon toenails, locally grown and sustainable."
"You don’t add eye of newt to a room temperature cauldron, you ignorant shit."
"It’s fucking raw!"
This would go great with Bobby Singer, Defence Against the Dark Arts teacher.
"Here, let me look it up in my How to Sweet-Talk Ukrainian Dragons manual. Oh, wait. No one ever wrote one."
ok so this just hit me
humidifiers fill the air with water molecules from a source of water.
so what if someone filled a humidifier with holy water. would this essentially cleanse a room of all evil?
Either demons aren’t real, or demons are afraid because humans keep coming up with $40 solutions to demon problems.
My sister and I have a headcanon that Jane is Belle and the Beast’s grandaughter.
and I think this further proves our point…
Which would explain why she understand Tarzan, he sort of reminds me of Beast in attitude…. he is sort of a Beast… hmmm. I like your headcanon.
I agree. Professor Porter said that she got her wild stories from her mother. Belle had wild stories, which turned out to be true, just like Jane’s story about Tarzan was true.
This must be shared, with EVERYONE!
