1. How do you make earl grey hot chocolate? Like, what the process of making it. 2. I wish I had hair like yours because it's amazing and lovely.

anexpansionlikegold answered:

First I boil whole milk and then pour it over whatever brand of Earl Grey tea I have that day (I usually like Tazo’s stuff but they get pricey sometimes.) Then I let that steep for just a second while I put the hot chocolate mix in another cup, then pour the tea-flavored milk in, stir it, ta da, nothing fancy. I usually leave the teabag in the actual hot chocolate for a bit, too, because I like my tea a bit strong.

My hair is trashed right now but thank you; I’ll take pictures for you guys when I dye it again

That sounds delicious. You genius you. :3

Tweaked it a bit…does this look any better? Constructive criticism as to how to improve is welcomed, encouraged, and downright begged for.

Now with reference photo.

What sticks out to me is I think your shading over emphasized the lines around their mouths (the smile lines) and that her mouth is crooked.  And his hairline (after staring for a few minutes I figured it out).  Your shading is amazing really and I think it just needs some blending on their faces. Maybe add some more texture lines to their hair (but they might just seem less detailed in the photo, I dunno).

I am curious, why do you like Bluebeard?

anexpansionlikegold answered:

Because one main character is a serial killer with a punk rock beard, and the other is a shrewd girl too curious for her own good that gets out alive anyway. It’s like someone went “What are all the things Natasza likes?” and then put them in one story

For some reason the stories just all left out the reason Bluebeard chose that girl (even with warning about how curious she was) was because her hair was blue like his beard (but prettier, obviously.).

Hag stones, also known as Holey Stones or Witch Stones, are stones that have a naturally occurring hole and are usually found near oceans and other bodies of water. They are said to be powerful protection talismans, and when worn or carried they protect the bearer from curses, hexes, negative spirits, and harm. They have also been used to prevent nightmares, being strung on a bedpost or placed underneath pillows. It is also believed that if you peer through the hole of the stone that you can see the Fae Folk and otherworldly entities. If one broke, it is thought to have used its power to protect a life.

Did somebody say tea? Let’s talk about tea witchcraft for a second!
If you know me at all, you’d know that I really enjoy finding ways to express witchcraft in everyday life. I’m a huge tea-drinker. Mainly, teas that I brew myself. It’s a little misleading, because what I drink isn’t usuall “tea” - no tea leaves to be found. Mostly they’re roots and leaves of different herbs all thrown together with some hot water; here we’ve got mint and licorice root, my favorite.
Now this particular pot wasn’t made for any witchcraft purposes, but just think of all the possibilites!
rosehip brew, for relationship rituals
honeycomb brew, for sweetening dispositions
sage brew, for personal purifications (another method of achieving this, perhaps?)
clover brew, for luck
And don’t even get me STARTED on the other potential magic. What about actually writing a sigil on a piece of organic paper, and then throwing it in the teapot while it’s brewing? (Keep in mind though, that you’d have to use:)
some sort of unbleached, organic paper (rice paper?) AND
edible ink (chocolate sauce? raspberry juice? Mmmm…)
This sort of thing would fall under kitchen withcraft/hearth witchcraft, for those who are interested. 
I’m off to drink tea now. I’m getting excited just thinking about it — all those possibilities! 
Happy casting!
