Jax. 21. Delawarean. Cisfemale, she/her pronouns. Poly, anxiety-ridden, Gnostic Catholic with Hermetic praxes, abnormally charming at times.

Would be a glorious God-Empress except for the embarrassment about receiving tribute. I like feminism, trashy period dramas, fashion with a backstory, evening skylines, baritone voices, cute folks in suits, and cosmic horror stories. I mostly reblog things because I have negative talent with any sort of image editor.

My fandoms change daily. I do, however, post and reblog a lot of Exalted stuff.

You can find my feelsdump of a writing blog here. Sometimes I write stuff on this blog too, when I'm not doing silly Exalted cosplays.

So, I wanted to do another community-based thing for the magic-users of Tumblr. Here’s how this works.

  1. Fill out the form between now and September 30th.
  2. Wait patiently.
  3. Check your inbox frantically during the first weekend of October. You will be given the Tumblr handle, tradition and preferences of another magic-user.
  4. You have until October 31st to write a spell, working, or ritual for them, based on their preferences.
  5. Between October 31st and November 2nd, send your match their spell—and wait for yours to send you one!

I’m taking part in this! :D

I know! I already signed up!

We’re currently at nine signups on the first day—I’m looking forward to more!

Eeeee, thirteen signups! I can’t wait to see where this goes!

This is a very nice drawing by Ale Araujo, conveying imagery strongly suggesting the sephiroth and qliphoth.

Liber Penumbrae: an Open-Source Book of Not-Quite-Shadows - Google Docs

tacticalnymphomania:

So, admittedly, I am not as magically talented as some of the people I follow on Tumblr. I rarely cast, most of my work is research and asking questions, and even then, I’ve only been practising for a year. What I am really good at, however, is organization and logistics. There are a lot of casters, willworkers, and witches on Tumblr, with a massive base of knowledge and spells to share. Problem is, they’re all on individual blogs.

That’s where the Liber Penumbrae comes in. Anyone can add a spell they want to share with the community, anyone can reference it at any time. Think of it as a cross-tradition spellbook with a simple format from which new things can be born.

The format for the Liber Penumbrae is below. If you have any questions, I’m happy to answer them.

Spell/Ritual Name: pretty self explanatory. this is how your spell, ritual, or other working will be known.
Submitted by: put your Tumblr name here, so people can search you with ctrl+f.
Keywords: is this a protection spell that uses candles and incense? put “candle magic, incense, protection” or a variation on that. think of this as searchable tags.

Necessary Nouns: whatever you need for the spell goes here. do you need candles, a pentagram, water, wine, herbs, thread, another caster, etc.?
Prep Time: again, self-explanatory.
Time to Cast: yet again, self-explanatory.
Caveats/Warnings: does this working have a backlash? should it not be performed on the full moon? is there a certain color of thread you should avoid for the knots? any warnings you think are important go here, whether practical (fire/metal/poisonous chemical warnings are important!) or magical.
Desired Outcomes: what is the goal of this working? what are some other interesting things that could result?

Instructions: tell me how!

Isn’t it the best show???

Yes, and it’s fucking killing me that Season One is free, but Season Two isn’t.

I am selfish, private and easily bored. Will this be a problem?
