Do you manage to get a nice home made pearl?? Mine always break while cooking and end up being gritty inside and gooey on the outside. They’re more jelly like than gummy too :( halp? Is it because I’m using white ones?
It sounds like you’re buying the wrong kind of pearls! Tapioca pearls are used in a lot of asian desserts, and the non-boba kind have different textures, flavors, and cooking methods.
When Asian supermarkets sell boba peals, they usually will carry this kind. (I always buy the one on the upper left, it’s really easy and will be ready after boiling for 5 minutes.)
I have tried tapioca pearls for other non-boba desserty things before, when I couldn’t find boba pearls. This brand gave me a lot of trouble, probably because I don’t know how to cook it and the English instructions were confusing. (They also didn’t have the right taste or texture)
If the pearls you’re using are colored or white, they might not be made for bubble tea. I would highly recommend this brand if you can get it, as it’s always worked fine for me:
You can also buy boba bulk pearls off online, I’ve done that before and they were all right.

Is it just linux users who have it easy? Or me? I just press “prtsc” on my laptop’s keayboard (that’s “print screen”) and it takes a screen shot automatically, saving it in a designated folder.
I don’t find it hard to take screencaps on my Mac, I know all the different shortcuts by heart and it’s second nature to me to hit them when I want to document something. I particularly enjoy being able to crop it as I’m taking the screencap, as opposed to taking a picture of my whole screen. It’s so much faster than how I used to have to do it on PCs.
….But the downside t that is my desktop is flooded with miscellaneous screencaps, especially works-in-progress. I am a bit overzealous with my screengrabbing, and never bother cleaning them up. XD
Are you researching only wicca or are you planning on including other types of magic in the story? I remember you saying there are other orders, practicing nun-fu differently. So maybe there are different magic practitioners too? Chaos magic has a lot of potential for creative outlet, it's basically as creative as it gets. Can provide great randomness and comic relief. No relying on premade rituals/invocations necessary - everything is designed from scratch, based on what floats your boat. Fun!
I’m only sticking to Wicca now, because researching that is a massive undertaking in itself. Along with modern practices you have to research for pagan beliefs as well, all the way back to ancient Greek and Druid rituals. Trying to get a good grasp of Wicca is no small task! D:
As for Chaos magic, I’ve never heard of it, but I just looked it up and it definitely sounds interesting!
Doing rituals via teleconference? Yeah, why not. XD
But keep in mind that just as with the “Catholic-ish” religion the Nuns in my comic practice, the Witches aren’t going to be practicing magic identical to Wicca. I am doing this research for inspiration, which I will be putting my own spin on.
