pro tip: it is ABSOLUTELY OKAY to use fake flowers, plastic cups, LED candles at your altar unless the figure you are honoring demands otherwise!! unlike most religions or practices, most of the time anything you are honoring will be perfectly all right with such things just as long as you uphold the spirit of the prayer and ceremony.
let’s all take a minute to stop and think about how Hagrid gave Harry his homemade birthday cake, told him how much he looked like his parents, and fed him sausages before he even started to explain that he was a wizard
let’s stop to think about how his absolute first priority was to let harry know that he was loved and cared for
1) Put the pen and the paper in front of you. Close your eyes and clear your mind.
2) Pick up the pen. On the paper, write down everything you think of. It doesn’t have to be sentences. It can just be words, and they don’t have to make sense. Just write and do not hesitate. If you forget a word you were going to write, leave it unfinished and move on. Just constantly write.
3) After you’ve filled up as much of the paper as you want (it should be most or all of it), take the paper and roll it up. Get a bowl and fill it with a very little bit of water (not more than 1/2 of a cup, but more than a tablespoon).
4) Submerge the paper into the water. Make sure it all gets soaked. As you do this, say the following as many times as you would like:
As my thoughts flowed freely while I wrote these words,
So shall my thoughts flow, unblocked, as I write my works.
Let my mind go free, let my imagination be as effective as a child’s.
Do not hold me back, let my efficiency go wild.
5) Imagine yourself being able to write without writer’s block. See yourself filled with inspiration. Imagine the spell’s energies helping you be the best you can be.
6) Let the paper soak in the water for a while. When you feel happy with how long it’s sat, take the paper out and wash the item you chose with (only) the water. This object can be the pen you’ll write with, a piece of jewelry you’ll wear while writing, your keyboard (you may just want to put the water on a cloth and lightly clean the keyboard with it if you choose this), etc. Just whatever you want.
7) Keep the item with you as you write.
1) Mix the herbs together and put them into the bottle. Heat the water and pour it over them. Fill the bottle near to the top, but not all the way. Imagine the protective energies from the herbs being boosted by the water and growing in power.
2) Pop the copper things into the bottle. Imagine the protective energies from them combining with the others and strengthening the spell.
3) On the paper, write down how you wish to be protected. It can be a simple statement or a detailed wish. Whatever floats your boat. When you’re done, roll it up and put it into the bottle as well. Imagine the energies already in the bottle reading your wish and empowering it.
4) Say the following:
Grant me protection while driving,
Grant my car protection even while alone.
Let me make no mistakes with dire consequences,
Let others make no mistakes that will affect me.
5) Imagine the energies from the spell surrounding you and your car, granting protection. See yourself being protected by these energies and not making any bad mistakes and such. Just imagine the spell working.
6) Seal the bottle. Let it sit for a few days. Then, later, you can open it (IF YOU WANT) and use the water to anoint your steering wheel, mirrors, windshield, whatever you want. Make sure to seal it again after.
JK Rowling said she would have made Seamus/Dean canon but she felt it would be distracting from the main trio
Literally how much space do you need to have a line about Dean asking Seamus to the Yule ball
Look, I’ll try
"Parvati had tried to ask Dean to the ball, but he told her he was going with Seamus instead."
