PS Where did you google that stuff? Pass us a link in case that real witch comes back.

/me takes off my cloak of Ravens Feathers. I could tell you...but then I would have to initiate you into an eldritch world...perhaps better to draw a discrete veil over such matters. /me makes a mystic pass with his hand..."These are not the droids you are looking for". ;)

I have not yet read this entire thread, and perhaps someone else has already outed me, but it is high time to confess than in real life, I am a superhero! 'Tis very true. Some number of years ago, my young daughter declared that I have a superpower, and that it is reading. Who am I to argue with the astute proclamations of a superpower-granting daughter?

They call me: The Battling Bookworm. Perhaps my scholarly sidekick will be along shortly to reveal herself as well, if she has not already done so.

Ah, I too did not want to out myself...but seeing you come forth...means I'd better fess-up.  Literacy Lady...here...your sidekick!

Good God!!! These revelations get more and more amazing!

So, who precisely does the Battling Bookworm fight? Who is your enemy? Do you have a snazzy car like Batman? Can you fly? How do you change into your superhero costume so quickly? Can anyone become a superhero? Are there slots for those of us with the odd roll of fat? I've found that tight lycra suits do absolutely NOTHING for my figure....

Oh my Gawd....the deadly duo in my thread.... I am so honoured!!!! I'm almost tempted to use the word "awesome", but unfortunately, I have made a vow never to utter that most abused word of the Englsh language.

/me is greatly amused imagining Carole engaged in BDSM acts. Now that would make for fantastic pics!

Oh please, don't encourage the old witch lovely Carole!

I have seen some, and believe me... it was not a pretty sight very insightful!

Luckily, Literacy Lady can suggest some alternatives to the dreaded and ubiquitous "awesome".   

Try these appropriate appellations Witch Carole: astonishing, awe-inspiring, formidable, impressive, magnificent, striking, or wondrous.

Ahem. I believe that would make you the "Other Sidekick", since the original Sidekick position has already been taken.

I hear fairies often like to use the word fabulous.  Might that be acceptable as well?

The truth is, though the choice of a human old lady might seem very banal to you, to me it’s very exotic. And the reason for this is that I am, incredible but true, a real-life witch!!!

Now I hear some of you say “I always said she was a right witch”, but for some of you, this news might come as a bit of a surprise. Hard to believe even, as real-life witches are not something you come across every day. To you, doubting Thomases I say – do not be sceptical – open your minds – for there are more things under heaven and earth than a bird in the bush.

I've always lived / worked in or near University towns - where "you kinda folks" are a dime a dozen.

Wiccans - usually converted hippies. Tend to be very left leaning. Name their kids funny things like Moonbeam and Sunshine just like those hippies did.

/shakes claw "Darn hippies, get offa my... oh wait... I'm sorta hippie-ish too."

 

SL is full of people of many different types and religions.

They've even got those weird Rastafarians. Darn rastas... get offa my... oops, that's me.

 

Though your post looks so tongue in cheek, easpecially with the cow and cat references, that I'm suspecting you're not actually a Wiccan, just forum playing - but then the humor could be the forum play.

"Wicca" is more or less a 20th century Neopagan reconstruction, invented rather whole cloth by Gerald Gardner, Aleister Crowley and others after them. If, as she claims in post #17, Carole is a direct linear descendant of traditional Sean Ciall adepts who somehow managed to escape the Highlands clearings, or even of the Old Ways revivalist movement from the 1700s, then she may not care to label herself as "Wiccan." If she is what she claims, and I have no reason to doubt her, since humor in no way precludes the fact, then she is a true hereditary Witch. But she should speak to this herself.

My mother makes no claims that the Witchcraft she practices is anything much more than reconstructionist. She has made serious study of the ethnographic literature concerning Western European Paganism and tries to be as historically authentic as she can be, but she will readily admit that much of her Craft relies heavily on personal gnosis. There is nothing wrong with this. Modern Wicca is no worse, and no better, than traditionalist Craft survivals, if there are any. Culture, language, religion evolves. When I practice Seiðr do I claim that what I do is the same as, or would be recognized by a Seiðkona of Þjóðhildr & Eiríkr inn rauði's day, let alone by a Sami Shaman of the late Pleistocene? Of course not. This does not make my Craft any less authentic for my day.

Gardner and many Wiccan writers seemed to claim they were not reconstructionists - "originalists" are often mixed in with reconstructionists though. Its always seemed to be outside media labeling them that way to discredit them. Crowley on the other hand was a freak, and I don't think he had any religion of any sort. I've not seen much influence from Crowley;s writings in any of the modern 'pagan / neo-pagan' groups - but I could be wrong. Seems the only group influenced by him was Anton Levy's.

I've seen great big flame wars over the issues of originalism versus reconstructionism, attestation versus personal gnosis, both online & in the meat world. I don't care to be involved. As ye annoy no one, believe what ye will. 

I like Papa Crowley. Not that I trust him. He was a shyster who I'd trust about as much as I'd trust Loki. His influence on contemporary esotericism has been enormous, which you can be sure was a big hoot to him. Crowley was fun to party with, I'll give him that!

Freyja bless you Pussycat. :matte-motes-smile:
