man every time i rewatch captain america i’m like. so inspired by dr. erskine. what a dude. bleeding out in steve rogers’ arms and his final act before dying is to go in for a last second boob touch. like, the dude saw his window of opportunity closing and he snatched it. not gonna see pecs like those in a shirt that tight in the afterlife. gotta make every minute on earth count.
Imagine Bucky being really self-conscious about his arm until one day a little boy with an artificial leg runs up to him saying that they match.
I FUCKED UP.
DON’T LOOK AT ME.
No, not really. =P
that would make the funniest fucking story ever. Due to a mix up at the factory, the template for incantations that was supposed to a publishing company of dark art books is sent to a feminine products factory. Girl then accidentally summons Satan with period blood. Satan gets confused because its “dead blood” and when he shows up he realizes the sacrifice was done incorrectly so he cannot take the girl’s soul but now is bound to do her bidding because oops his bad, he showed up anyway.
even better if it’s a 12 or 13 year old girl who JUST started her period
oh man but what if there was the same culture about magic as with other things in academia. Like there was this old fashioned way of doing potions and casting spells and creating charms and then a street way that might be more edgy and experimental. Like people programming spells and shit into their phones is frowned upon and new spells are considered fake and not real because they were not in the older academic books and a street level alchemy would produce dangerous new things but also kickass new potions and charms to help people but the government would not take them seriously
and people look at new-age magic like new-age medicine, like there are community groups who swap homemade spells like remedies and you can go to an ‘alternative’ school or doctor or what have you and learn more about it but you might not be taken seriously by academia
yes this is good tell me more
ok but pentagrams done in graffiti on the streets is said to be weaker than doing it in some fancy ass other method when there is actually no proof of this being so and books written on how to cast spells are hard to read and dense and annoying but there is a culture passed down of verbal magic that has evolved into something different and lets take a kid who comes from this street magic culture and is fucking strong and powerful going to some preppy elite school for mages and not knowing how to do shit with all these expensive ingredients for a potion because yo potatoes work just fine too
