A Compendium of Witches ~ Arthemie

"Just as nature, magic doesn’t distinguish between good and evil, right and wrong - it knows only transformation. It breathes with lungs too deep and wide to concern itself with the mundane. Good and evil exist only in the actions of people. When, in 1927, the Great Mississipi flood swallowed Plaquemines Parish, many raised their hands to the sky and called it unfair, cursing it. It had rained for months and the destruction was unprecedented. But my voice did not join theirs. Water destroys, water creates, but water does not know evil."

~ Arthémie’s story will be featured among those of other wise women in my upcoming A Compendium of Witches, a project supported by my amazing Patreon community

A Compendium of Witches ~ Melissa

Melissa spent her life on Mount Parnassus, dwelling in a cave as a nympholept. It was through the possession by nymphs that she worked her art of divination. Many pilgrims in her lifetime and in the following decades visited the sanctuary to leave offerings to the local goddesses and consult the oracle. The visitors that would climb to the location were, unlike the clients of Delphi, poor people that lived in the surrounding areas.

Historically, the use of caves as places of worship of the nymphs is not rare. Caves were seen as the womb of the Goddess, brimming with subterranean waters, as well as a liminal place were the Underworld and our world met.”

A Compendium of Witches ~ Grizel

“After a few days the fever left my body and I woke up, but my health never fully recovered. Every so often, out of the blue, I would experience harrowing headaches that no herb or prayer could appease. But this was not all. Sometimes I could detect movement in the corner of my vision; Shadows crept along the corners of walls, and pressed into alcoves on the street. Gradually, as time passed, they revealed themselves to me. Like wild animals coming out of hiding. The shadows started to take shape. Some formed into winged beasts with translucent skin like spider webs soaked in dew, whilst others sprouted soft fur. Through the gradual comfort of our proximity I grew to understand their characteristics and eventually learnt to communicate with them. Some chatted like songbirds, whilst others kept quiet and distant; nodding and gesturing in lieu of words.”

A Compendium of Witches ~ Viduca
In the middle of the poplar wood stood the oldest tree. They called it the 'White Grandmother', due to the colour of its trunk that, where it began to branch, turned a brilliant silver. It was here that I would sit wrapped in a warm wolf pelt, and watch the sky. I would lose myself in the hectic dance of the leaves which followed the slow swinging of the branches; sinuous like river-weed. My heart would soften, gradually slowing to meet the rhythm of the earth below me. 
My eyelids became heavier, and heavier... Leaving my human skin there at the foot of the tree, I would let the wolf skin grow on me. I let it devour me whole, I let it invade me like roots on fertile soil.


Here's the portrait of Viduca, the Gaulish shapeshifter witch that is going to be featured in A Compendium of Witches. She was born not far from Vesontio, in 40BCE.

Her story will be featured among those of other wise women in my upcoming A Compendium of Witches, a project supported by my amazing Patreon community

Alfar
“The white veil wrapped around everything, giving the invisible an ethereal substance. It beaded on the spiderwebs strung between the trunks and the slender fingers of the álfar. The distinction between real and unreal lost its meaning.”

The álfar will feature in Ulfrún's story, in my upcoming A Compendium of Witches, a project supported by my amazing Patreon community
