Aryós Héngwis

Aryós Héngwis

Aryós Héngwis (or the more modest Héngwis for short) is a native of the Pontic-Caspian steppe, born some 5000 years ago, near the village of Dereivka. In his youth he stood out from the other snakes for his love of learning and culture, eventually coming into the service of the local reǵs before moving westward toward Europe. Most recently, Aryós Héngwis left his home to pursue a new life in America, where he has come under the employ of BBI Media as an internet watchdog (or watchsnake, if you will), ever poised to strike the unwary troll.

The Sun High Above Us

Summer is now in full swing! Today is the Summer Solstice, also known as Litha in Old English or Midsummer, is a festival celebrated as either the beginning or midpoint of summer in many cultures throughout Europe, with parallels across the world in other locations as well. It’s opposite is of course Midwinter, which is celebrated at the same time on the other side of the world.

As always we’ve gathered all of our related posts as well as those we found across the internet that we thought you might enjoy . We hope you have a great time this summer!

Good Witch v. Bad Witch: Magic Curious

"Dear Sisters:

I'm looking for some kind of help or guidance here. I always considered myself a Unitarian until recently when I started to question certain things in my life following a very bad relationship breakdown. Previously when I've been hurt badly, things have happened to the perpetrators, things I have not wished on them nor had control over, I always believed it was my late Mother helping me out. However having looked more into things and having tried 2 spells on the latest person to hurt me, they have both worked, to my amazement. How do I find out more and how do I go about seeing if this is the right path for me to follow?"
