  • Unsettled Time
    We are living in unsettled time. Wp Rnpt has ended the time between time, the Days Upon the Year in which time is upended and unordered, but time is still not aligned fully. We have space in which action exists, in which we can uphold the world, set ma’at in its place, the leverage to […]

Paganism and Fandom

I’ve been thinking about the interconnections between various subcultural things a lot lately, partly because of the research I was doing for my summary of pagan movement history.
