the old world is dying away, and the new world struggles to come forth: now is the time of monsters.
Recently I had a crush on Harley Quinn from Batman: Assault on Arkham but now WHOLE NEW CRUSH LEVEL of Elizabeth Olsen playing Scarlet Witch!!!

Understanding Transmutation Circles:
Because this stuff is so super interesting, I had to share. I’m am not a very scientific person, so this is mostly copy & pasted from here (x).
Perfect Polygons Polygraphs
Circle - Base Representing a Whole
Triangle - Air
Square - Earth
Pentagon - Fire
Pentagram - Gate
Hexagon - Water
Hexagram - Human Transmutation
Heptagon - High Energy Transmutation, Ether
Heptagram - Ether
Octagon - Life
Octagram - Soul
Isosceles Triangle - Compression in Air, Alchemical Symbols Signify Elements
Hook - Symbol Representing Attachment
Wing - A leaving, release, or return of ethereal energy.
Dots - 1 - Endothermic, 2 - Exothermic, 3 - metal, 4 - pumice, 5 - sulfur, 6 - carbon, 7 - ethanol alcohol, 8 - blood
Arrow/Ray - Simple Direction
Spirals - Transmutation of exothermic energy endothermically. In Example: Creation of Ice from liquid water.
Cross - Represents a Holy, or other worldly power. A power greater than man. Usually represented in transmutation using the human soul.
Words - A personal touch, an action of good faith
Snake - Represents evil
Parts outside of the main circle - Constant change, the circles effect will last forever.
Arcs - Connected - Unification, Apart - Separation
Examination: Uncompleted connection to the gate, this is a one way transfer. 2 elements, these are arcane elements, body, and mind. Cross representing a higher power, in this case the gate. Wings representing a return of energy. 2 Rays pointing away from a central point, toward the sides of both body and mind. Hook represented by a snake, give both attachment and evil.
Final Effect: - A being is split both mentally and physically, to return to the gate. After the return the connection to the gate is broken forever, and I higher power will do something. They will be attached to the higher power forever.
Anyway, thought this would be interesting to share with you!
By the way, question: What sorts of things would you think alchemy should be used for in different areas (for story purposes)?
"In the function of relationships the truest of people near to you are the ones who are not afraid to call you on your bullshit because they love you. How can those who let you self destruct say they love you? Just because they give you freedom doesn’t mean they care how you use it. It’s those who question the validity of your choices and jump off the cliff to catch you as you fall"-
JUST FUCKING LISTEN.
THIS IS HALLOWEEN BUT NOT LIKE YOU KNOW IT
reblog so others can hear it!
Where the hell are the Victorian Goths they should be all over this.

YO Give some credit to the Vitamin Quartet! Not only have they covered various other songs from The Nightmare Before Christmas, they do all kinds of covers from Coldplay to Kansas (yes, Supernatural Fandom, they have a cover of Carry on My Wayward Son). So yeah, if you see this going around without a source, give some love to the Vitamin String Quartet :)
