hogwarts house: slytherin, according to every test i’ve taken, and i think it makes sense. i’m brave but only when it’s smart to be (unless it’s a life/death situation but that’s pretty rare), i have a thirst for knowledge but it doesn’t drive me as much as it would a ravenclaw, and i’m very loyal, but it takes a while to earn my trust and respect and therefore it takes a while to earn my loyalty, so… i mean, i’m cunning for sure and i’m good at thinking things through and fixing problems and i always weigh every option so yeah slytherin it is
favourite fictional character: i can’t think of anything i just can’T like the pansy parkinson inside my head is fantastic and meg the demon had so much potential and sam winchester was great for a while and there’s so so so MANY but so much of my love for these characters is more what i think they could be and less what they are, so i can’t really… choose… but i will perpetually love selina kyle idk
favourite television show: KINGS. JUST KINGS. LITERALLY KINGS FOREVER AND EVER
favourite season: i love the flowers of spring, but i get horrible allergies so i’ll have to go with summer.
describe yourself in a few words: ”you’re patrick stump it goes without saying you are invited to EVERY orgy” -gamble endquestionmark
future children’s names: i like diana eleanor. honestly, though, it’s going to depend on who the father is, namely his cultural heritage- if i marry some white american guy, diana is fine, but there’s a likelihood i won’t, so- i love ayana, trella, elisaveta; i really shouldn’t be planning this far in advance, though, so let’s move on. for a boy i want thomas charles (both my grandfathers) but i like sam a lot and again, it depends on the father.
meaning of your name: majestic, grand, venerable (my first name, margaret, means pearl. i prefer augusta. WAY more badass.)
ultimate otp: i have trouble dealing with jack/david right now but teddy/lily is sort of my Forever just ask opheliact
what do you plan to/do for a living: survive comfortably, preferably doing something i enjoy. i do not have it in me to be a struggling writer, so i’ll likely do something else and write at night and hope for the best.

coffee or tea: it depends very heavily on the day
rain or shine: i get tired and sad without sunshine but i love the feeling right before it storms when the clouds are dark and the wind is blowing and you can just smell it

The old Lie:
FIGURES OF LORE | lilith, biblical mythology
↳ requested by anon
Lilith (Hebrew: לילית; lilit, or lilith) is a Hebrew name for a figure in Jewish mythology, developed earliest in the Babylonian Talmud, who is generally thought to be in part derived from a class of female demons Līlīṯu in Mesopotamian texts of Assyria and Babylonia.
Evidence in later Jewish materials is plentiful, but little information has been found relating to the original Akkadian and Babylonian view of these demons. The relevance of two sources previously used to connect the Jewish Lilith to an Akkadian Lilitu—the Gilgamesh appendix and the Arslan Tash amulets—are now both disputed by recent scholarship. The two problematic sources are discussed below.
The Hebrew term Lilith first occurs in Isaiah 34:14, either singular or plural according to variations in the earliest manuscripts, though in a list of animals. In the Dead Sea Scrolls Songs of the Sage the term first occurs in a list of monsters. In Jewish magical inscriptions, on bowls and amulets from the 6th century CE onwards, Lilith is identified as a female demon and the first visual depictions appear.
In Jewish folklore, from the 8th–10th century Alphabet of Ben Sira onwards, Lilith becomes Adam’s first wife, who was created at the same time (Rosh Hashanah) and from the same earth as Adam. This contrasts with Eve, who was created from one of Adam’s ribs. The legend was greatly developed during the Middle Ages, in the tradition of Aggadic midrashim, the Zohar, and Jewish mysticism. In the 13th century writings of Rabbi Isaac ben Jacob ha-Cohen, for example, Lilith left Adam after she refused to become subservient to him and then would not return to the Garden of Eden after she mated with archangel Samael. The resulting Lilith legend is still commonly used as source material in modern Western culture, literature, occultism, fantasy, and horror.

"Though much is taken, much abides, and though we are not now that strength which in old days moved earth and heaven, that which we are, we are… One equal temper of heroic hearts, made weak by time and fate, but strong in will to strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield." - Skyfall (2012)
