"Hey FYI, in case you've been wondering, the paper maché vulva sculpture in the basement full of dirty dishes, was something *** made which we only found today while investigating a strange smell we've noticed around the house. It's not ours and we are currently figuring out what to do with it. Anyway, if you've noticed an odd smell like a naired skunk lmk cuz we're trying to figure out the source."
COULD ANY OF THE WITCHES OF MASTODON HELP CONFIRM IF MY OLD ROOMMATE WAS ACTUALLY USING OUR DISHES IN THIS VULVA SHRINE TO HARNESS OUR ENERGIES FOR RITUALS?!?!?!
I'M SERIOUS LMFAO
HOLY FUCK APPARENTLY THIS IS TRUE?!?!?!
HOLY FUCKING SHIT
IS THIS WHY IT TOOK OVER A YEAR FOR ANYONE TO NOTICE IT?!?! MAGICK?!?!? WHAT DO WE DO?!!?
UPDATE: So we went downstairs and as unceremoniously as possible stomped it to pieces and threw it in the garbage while wearing latex gloves. We didn't take any more pictures of document the process because we didn't want to give it any more power
In the pot we found a gross red liquid which may or may not have been blood. While carrying it out of the basement to pour it out in the gutter I tripped and spilled it on tom's car and on myself. I'm gonna take a shower reciting a thousand brachas lmfao
When we tossed it in the garbage I said Shecheheyanu because it's my first time destroying a pagan ritual, then i said the bracha for destroying idols.
Sam sprayed the liquid away with a hose and our upstairs neighbor, the landlord's son, came down and talked about it all with us and made fun of it with us and reacted to the photos and we made light of it and he asked for the pictures to show his girlfriend
I have said al n'tilat yadayim while washing my hands every time lmao whether or not this thing had real power it's creepy af that we were living with someone collecting our shit to harness our energies or whatever
We threw the pot in the garbage and the other dishes are in a paper bag outside and we're not sure what to do with them yet. Throw them out or bleach them. Some sentimental things are in there
@shel ...how does this keep getting weirder?
@shel LMAO and i thought i had bad roommates
@shel you might want to get new dishes, for one
@shel that's not magical advice, it just sounds like your dishes might be beyond saving at this point
You, uh... You might need some bleach, there.
And some, y'know, fire.
@shel destroy it and see if a lich dies
@shel oH MY GOD
@shel this thread has officially made me paganphobic. or just. generally phobic of weird, gross shrines.
@starwall YEAH AFTER THIS I'M LIKE
MAYBE THE PAGANS NEED TO BE SMITED AFTERALL LMAO
@shel I never knew witchcraft was so... gross?
@shel religious freedom is great n' all but if it means leaving a paper shrine filled with bodily fluid and dirty dishes in someone else's house then I feel as if you've crossed some kind of line
it was her house when she put it there
@shel there ARE words that could be had about the importance of sanitation and cleanliness even in places you live in
@shel this thread has been profoundly shocking and I can only imagine how you're feeling rn having just lived it???
@starwall a lot
@shel Pagan here: that shrine is a whole slew of ethical and ritual consent violations if you ask me. Especially if they were using your energy and/or bodily fluids to power it, or had it set up to affect you, without your knowledge.
@shel I want to elaborate on a few things. First and foremost, your old roomate sounds like what we in the Devotional Polythiest community call "a creepy, inconsiderate, self-centered douchebag". It's a very technical term. You do *not* fuck with other people's energies without their consent, unless you are trying specifically to hex somebody. But from my read here, it smells like they were just using your energy (and stuff) to further some magickal working on their behalf.
@shel So restating that: it is considered bad practice to screw with people's energies without their consent, unless you are specifically doing it to hurt them (in which case, that's kinda the point... "Mr. Trump, would you mind terribly if I put a hex on you or your stone stupid offspring?")
@shel also, disposal?? Like, why the glorious fuck would you leave old bodily fluids offerings lying around when you move? Why would any sane person do that? That's a wee bit different from "forgetting the whiskey offering so long that it evaporates from the glass and leaves a brown residue"... no, what you are talking about is a Godsdamned *biohazard*.
Your old roomate sounds like a dip. And dips are dangerous... they know enough magick to do damage but not enough to be safe.
@vanicpanic we asked her over and over like "do you have any of our silverware still?" And the landlord's son had asked her "is there anything left in the basement you need to get?" And she said no to both so she was actively hiding it. It was also in a dark corner facing a wall
@shel AAARGGGHHHH!!! What a bloody asshole!
@shel Maybe make a joke like "we found your weird sculpture" at your former-roommate if you can ever cross her path again.
@shel WHAT THE FUCK it is twelve kinds of fucked up that your roommate did this!!!!!!!!
@shel Sounds like something those chaos magic drips would do TBH.
@shel definitely sounds like chaos magic nerds being whacky
