  • How familiar are you with witchcraft?
    I have been "practicing" for most of my life, I simply never chose to call it "witchcraft". My family has also practiced a culturally relevant form of what some consider traditional witchcraft.
  • Have you explored other paths?
    I toyed with wicca and so neopagan druidism but always on an academic standpoint as I simply felt both (and all neopagan spiritual organizations) far too religious and nauseatingly empty for my taste. I respect those that follow said "artistry" and enjoy the fact they follow a rede which forbids them from doing harm (romantic notion but at least this way they limit the already negative connotations associated with witchcraft towards myself and other traditional crafters via control of their "art", the more they profess goodness and light the more myths are busted), However, I am not one to follow non existant metaphoric footsteps.
  • Have you ever worked with Traditional Witchcraft?
    As mentioned before, I have pretty much all my life practiced "witchcraft" , the female side of my family has always delved in such practices :)
  • What does Traditional Witchcraft mean to you?
    Rather difficult to describe as the word itself means nothing and yet describes everything, "It" is not something that can be acquired,learnt or forced, it is not polar in nature, it simply "is". The ability to both perceive and manipulate it's essence is what I consider true witchcraft.
  • How long have you worked with witchcraft in general?
    Again as mentioned above, most of my life. Specifically and by my own accord = 11 years old, specifically and not by my own accord (exposed to witchcraft) = 2 years old.
  • What brought you to our site?
    Google and an article brought to my attention by a wiccan who was very displeased with a few traditional witches ;)
  • What do you expect to get from this site, and what do you expect to contribute to this forum?
    I expect nothing, I will ask questions and give answers when they are called for or appropriate. As with everything, the fun is in the discovery, expectations serve little purpose in any part of the craft.
  • Do you belong to any other online witchcraft sites?
    No
  • What are your strongest points in witchcraft?
    Points as in strength of ability or innate "gifts"?

    I am unusually perceptive, very concise, sharp willed and fueled by emotion. All "gifts" associated with the craft as well as personal life.
  • What are your weakest points in witchcraft?
    Being fueled by emotion is a double edged sword, emotions are varied in nature and difficult to induce naturally or control, which in turn does make things difficult. Control in general is a major problem when "crafting" more so if it is spontaneous and governed by logic.
  1. Boring for some I'm sure *apologies*, work in progress.
  2. I don't like the available options for answers in the quiz -_- You got: Gryffindor You have a heart of a lion. You never give up, never back down and give everything 100%. Good things happen to you because you fight for them. You stand up for yourself and for your friends because you believe in what is right. Your energy is magnetic and makes you a natural leader.
  3. Finding buried nails in the back yard is what prompted me to get 4 T shots in less than 6 years, a shame I always "found" them with the sole of my feet or when they punctured the palm of my hand lol seems oddly common in the US, some sort of colonial pass time? Supposing this is actually related to something crafty (it may be or it may not be), remnants of the typical witch bottle (super common in europe albeit done a bit differently) or something entirely different I would exercise caution with regards to their use even if they do feel "fine" as they are now. It would ultimately depend on what you sense is correct but from experience, items used by others with any lingering remanence of the craft work they were subjected to or used for have a very peculiar way of being "unpredictable" no matter how innocent or inert they feel. I have a scar from one such experience with some dubious items I "thought" to experiment with... With that being said, if you have not sensed anything malicious or strange thus far on the property, they may very well be harmless "trash". Again, I'm pretty sure there was some odd pass time related to such things lol. PS- "witch bottles" made in my neck of the woods (across the atlantic) are normally extremely simple looking, are elaborate witch bottles common across the atlantic?
  4. Everything literally revolves around the grand rite, every bit of magic they use is somehow related to the grand rite (apart from the bits where Mercy attempts revenge, but even then it is because she wants to be the witch in charge of the... grand rite), all the power they possess was granted and is used simply to allow them to complete the grand rite, their bickering is always about something related to the grand rite... They eat their breakfast with a great big heap of grand rite slathered on top, they dress in the grand rite and for the grand rite, they fall asleep to the sounds of the grand rite and I'm starting to suspect they also brush their teeth with the grand rite.... I really cannot stand the philosophic "the witches are granted power" line of thinking the show keeps dishing out, apart from Anne Hale and Sebastian they all had to bargain their way into receiving power... Apart from The countess and Anne Hale, very very little diversity is introduced in the magic practiced on the show, motivation and the means in which they work magic is pretty much identical between the witches... I applauded the shift in plot construction with the introduction of the Countess storyline.
  5. I like how refreshingly dark salem is, i find that the darker the show gets the more intrigued I am. With that being said though, I absolutely can't stand the terminologies and blatant mix ups, the lack of diversity within the witches and this constant talk about the devil granting them power does my head in. The story at times is extremely annoying also as the plot is very monochromatic at times. I absolutely LOVE Lucy Lawless and her character representation. Now that is a truly bad ass witch :) Witches of east end was super entertaining and portrayed (up to a bit) a very positive image of crafters in a semi traditional way without heading off the cheesy cliff. I enjoyed the atmosphere the family had about them.
