#salem witch trials

October 15th 2002.

History is about to be made.

A quirky redhead on America’s favourite TV show was about to be the first - yes, the first ever - to use a word that would soon become a staple in our day-to-day vocabulary:

“Have you Googled her yet?”

This wasn’t the first time Buffy The Vampire Slayer changed the world. And one of the changes we saw take shape amongst Giles witty comments, Xander’s foolish ways, and Spike’s problematic character arc was the innovative portrayal of Willow Rosenberg.

She didn’t just represent one of the first times a lesbian relationship (yes, an actual lesbian relationship with affection and emotions) was put on the small screen: Willow was one of the many Wiccan characters to magick their way into media stardom.

Sabrina, Morticia, and even Cher brought Wicca and witchcraft to a new generation, giving 90s kids and noughties wannabes a taste of a new religion.

(Delicious.)

Wicca is now a popular religion with 1.5 million followers in the US and its very own Instagrammable aesthetic. It’s magickal, it’s mystical, and it might just be for you.

And here’s the guide to getting started.

Hello everyone, it’s been months since I last posted anything on here. I don’t know if I still want to post anything on tumblr, but I figured I should use the platform I gained a little at least. 

I’ve changed a lot and I like to think my writing has improved since creating this blog at 14/15. I’ve included the first chapter of a story I’m writing. I’ve included a link to it, it is available on wattpad.

The Immortal and the Cursed

Who knows if I’ll ever post anything again…college was shit so I’m no longer in school for this semester so I have a lot more free time and plan on working on writing more and hopefully one day publishing my stories.

I hope you all have a good day.

When you can’t sleep, and your mother yelled at you for drinking one glass of apple wine while she’s had several bottles: try and read about death! This dead vintage lesbian gives this two corpses thumbs- since they aren’t attached to the hands! The original account of “The Witch Delusion of Colonial Connecticut” is the only services copy of old manuscripts, case work accounts, and several upon an upheaval of the actual court kept records anddocuments! ***found stuffed in the way back of her hs occult section this dead vintage lesbian couldn’t pass up the chance to regime this book that wasn’t checked out from March 14 1996 five months before the new owner was set to be born! :0***

Yes, why get totally sloshed and hammered when you can learn what your forefathers wanted to hide!?!

I’m wondering…

So in “Lost in Language”, Eda mentions that eating babies is “so 1693”. Since this happens to be the same year that the Salem Witch Trials ended, What do you suppose the chances are that at least one resident of the Boiling Isles had made it to earth around that time, and could the trend of eating babies have stopped as a result of the trials?

Taylor Swift’s willow re-awakened in me my long-repressed desire to be a woman who speaks a tiny bit too much in 1692 in Salem, Massachusetts and get burned at the stake while spewing out fake curses, instilling terror in the souls of the puritan townspeople gathered there to watch the witch burn

This has felt like such a long term, but I’m finally in the home stretch. This is the last week of classes…one term paper down, one to go. Even though I’m definitely feeling the pressure, I’m actually really enjoying the research for this term paper. I am writing about the Salem witch trials memorial and public memory, and how it’s construction finally gave both tourists and descendants a place to honor and mourn the lives lost. It situates the real human toll and tragedy of the events of 1692 against the “Witch City” tourist hype of the present day, and how it affects peoples’ perception of history. As much as I’m enjoying the research, I’m exhausted and can’t wait for break.

If they can hang a woman like Miss Bishop, what does that mean for someone like me?
