A handy list of poisons for writing reference, provided to you by me, Bella.

Poisonin is the one of the oldest murder tactics in the books. It was the old equalizer,
and while it's often associated with women, historically men are no less likely to poison
people, you banna bunces, it;s a guide on writing abou poisons in fictions so you don't
end up on a watch list while researching them. I've taken that hit for you. You're
welcome. These are just few of the more clasic ones.

Hemlock: Hemlock (conium maculatum) is one of the more famous ones, used in
ancient times most notbaly in Socrates' forced suicide execution. So it goes. The plant
has bunches of small, white flowers, and can go up to ten feet tall. It's a rather panicky
way to die, although it wouldn't show: hemlcok is a paralytic, so the cause of death is
most often ashyxiation due to resperatory paralysis, although the mind remains
unaffected and


I think the best piece of writing advice I ever got wasfrom an author of locally popular
novels that visited my school when I was in grade eight. He said that when you want to
write a novels, or any kind of story, the typical system of "What is my story about? Who
is it about? What will happen?" are pretty much the worst thing you can do.

Writing is far simpler than that.

His advice was to ask yourself three wuestions that I'll never:

Who is the character want more than anything?

An how can I prevent them from getting it?

One of my favorite phrases my Creative Writing professor had for when you’re writing
fantasy is ‘giving your story a Flux Capacitor’.

Because it’s not real, it doesn’t exist. But the way it’s thrown into Back to the Future, at
no point does it throw the audience off or suspend any more disbelief than time travel
would. You believe Doc when he says he created the Flux Capacitor – the thing that
makes time travel possible, because the universe never questions him.

So it essentially means like, there are going to be elements to your universe that are
just not gonna make any sense, even if you set up a shole system based on it. And the
only way to make it work is completely own it. You cannot second-guess your system or
else the reader will too. You can give it the strangest explanation, but write it like you
own it.

Either you’ve got to follow the rules of reality and physics and shit TO THE LETTER, or
you have to say “naaaah” and fuck off with your magic /sci-fi/ whatever to have a
marvelous garden party where reality isn’t invited.

Im studying the Iliad in class at the moment and one lesson my teacher made us watch
the fist scen from 'Troy' and then asked us to point out what was wrong with Achilles
and Patroclus' characters in the film and I just blurted out "they arent gay lovers" and
everyone looked at me for a minute and then my teacher just pointed at me and went

Idealists, as a temperament, are passionately concerned with personal growth and

development. Idealists strive to discover who they are and how they can become their
best possible self -- always this quest for self-knowledge and self-improvement drives
their imagination. And they want to help others make the journey. Idealists are naturally
drawn to working with people, and whether in education or counseling, in social services
or personnel work, in journalism or the ministry, they are gifted at helping others find
their way in life, often inspiring them to grow as individuals and to fulfill their potentials.

Idealists are sure that friendly cooperation is the best way for people to achieve their
goals. Conflict and confrontations upset them because they seem to put up angry
barriers between people. Idealists dream of creating harmonious, even caring personal
relations, and they have a unique talent for helping people get along with each other
and work together for the good of all. Such interpersonal harmony might be a romantic
ideal, but then Idealists are incurable romantics who prefer to focus on what might be,
rather than what is. The real, practical world is only a starting place for Idealists; they
believe that life is filled with possibilities waiting to be realized, rich with meanings
calling out to be understood. This idea of a mystical or spiritual dimension to life, the
“not visible” or the “not yet” that can only be known through intuition or by a leap of faith,
is far more important to Idealists than the world of materials things.

Highly ethical in their actions, Idealists hold themselves to a strict standard of personal
integrity. They must be true to themselves and to others, and they can be quite hard on
themselves. When they are dishonest, or when they are false or insincere. More often,
however, Idealists are the very soul of kindness. Particularly in their personal
relationships, Idealists are without question filled with love and good will. They believe in
giving of themselves to help others; they can cherish a few warm, sensitive friendships;
they strive for a special rapport with their children; and in marriage they wish to find a
“soulmate,” some with whom they can bond emotionally and spiritually, sharing their
deepest feelings and their complex inner worlds.

Idealists are relatively rare, making up no more than 15 to 20 percents are the
population. But their ability to inspire people with their enthusiasm and their idealism
has given them influence far beyond their numbers.

Idealists at Works

Idealist, as a temperament, are passionately concerned with personal growth and

development. They are naturally drawn to working with people and are gifted with

fulfill their potential both on, and off, the job.

Because you live in anticipation of an exciting future, your ideal job you will be asked to
stretch your imagination on a continual basis. Existing ideas, individuals and groups of
people, products, services, and the relationships between these things can trigger
flashes of insight about how “what is” might unfold into “what might be.” You feel free to
share your insights with people who encourage your creativity and who support the
unpredictable process by which you narrow down the stream of ideas into innovations
that are meaningful within the scheme of your personal values. You are likely to be
comfortable taking on a leadership role, so long as it doesn’t place you in an arbitrary

Mary Poppins and Dubledore were Gryffindor prefects together and nothing can
convince me otherwise.

Later in life she took on the job of visiting children on their eleventh birthday to explain
things and give them their letter. Lily Evans was very excited to meet her, and told her
about the muggle film a man called Disney made about her.

“Oh, Walt,” Mary said thoughtfully. “He was expelled from Ilvermorny for charming
cameras so the photographs would move. Bit of an old duck, but he was nothing
compared Wonka. Have you seen his film yet, dear?
