In the Victorian era, hand-fans were used not only to cool oneself but also as a secret way to communicate the language of love. For example, by running one’s fingers through the fan’s ribs, one is trying to say, "I want to talk to you." The enigmatic language of the fan was widely used by both men and women.

"You have won my love."

"When may I be allowed to see you?"

III. A closed fan moved threateningly.
"Do not act so impudently!"

"You may kiss me."

V. Covering the left ear with an open fan.
"Do not betray my secret."

VI. Hiding the eyes behind an open fan.
"I love you."

VII. Shutting a fully open fan slowly.
"I promise to marry you."

VIII. Fanning oneself slowly.
"I am married."

IX. Letting one’s fan rest on the right cheek or the left.
"Yes" and "No", interchangeably.

X. Opening and closing the fan several times.
"You are cruel."

XI. Fan in front of the face.

  My Pet Princess

Inubaki: Princess Lucy is kidnapped, falling into the clutches of a HUGE PIIIiiiikkkk dragon…. (yup pink!) Filled with panic and a nagging sense of deja vu, the princess instantly scurries as far away as she could after she’s non-to-gently dropped. Backed in a corner staring death in the face, the princess watches the dragon lean back on his hinges with tail raised up as if like a cat ready to pounce! Scaley lips pull back reviling razor sharp teeth as long as a human man’s arm, snarling back into a sudden giant grin. Princess Lucy stares jaw slacked as the dragon’s booty and tail begin to tail with an alarming enthusiasm.

  Confused and petrified, the Princess looked into the dragon’s ecstatic dark eyes, and felt a sense almost familiar that tagged at her heart when abruptly the dragon spoke, —-

A sigil magick is a symbol that you creat that carries your will. For example in this tutorial the sigil will bring bravery.

1. Write out your intention

"I will be brave"

2. Remove all repeating letters


3. Then simplify the letters into basic shapes

\ / \ / I C \ /— \ \ /

4. Then put those letters together and make a symbol from them. Make the symbol one that you feel comfortable with.

— a way to charge your sigil is to have other people look at it, or you can meditate with it, or sleep with it.

-Now from this step, you can do one of many things.
Fold it up and bury it, Burn it
Rip it to pieces and let the wind carry it off, put it in a river, lake, stream, ect.
rip it, set it in melted candle wax, put in witch bottle.

remember -do not be too vague
- try to be exact
- when finished with the sigil you can place a border around the sigil (triangle/ circle/ square)
-depending on what method you use it’s best to simplify the words
- don’t forget to activate your sigil

A good book to read is :

The truly inspiring story of the Chinese rubbish collector who saved and raised THIRTY babies abandoned at the roadside

A woman has been hailed a hero after details of her astonishing work with abandoned children has emerged.

Lou Xiaoying, now 88 and suffering from kidney failure, found and raised more than 30 abandoned Chinese babies from the streets of Jinhua, in the eastern Zhejiang province where she managed to make a living by recycling rubbish.

She and her late husband Li Zin, who died 17 years ago, kept four of the children and passed the others onto friends and family to start new lives.

Her youngest son Zhang Qilin - now aged just seven - was found in a dustbin by Lou when she was 82.

‘Even though I was already getting old I could not simply ignore the baby and leave him to die in the trash. He looked so sweet and so needy. I had to take him home with me,’ she said.

Full story

Why doesn’t this have more notes?
This woman is nothing short of an angel.

She has so little and gives so much, and organizations such as the government and school systems won’t do anything for this cause.
I am at loss of words at this lady’s sacrifice.
