For sure…we won’t push you to tell us things you aren’t comfortable with!


#122

I am overwhelmed in the best way possible with your kindness. This is nuts.


#123

That’s totally fair! :eaveshug: If there’s anything a bit more general you can share, I think we’d all love to hear about it. Take all the time you need, to get comfortable. I know this is a lot to jump into.


#124

So I have a spell for you, and it’s… wrought magic, like Sullivan Green wrote about. (Look at me, just casually discussing Sullivan Green with the Mountaineers.) The spell is dangerous, from the telling of it, I mean I don’t know, I have no experience with it ever being performed.


#125

Dangerous or no, I think we’re all pretty committed to helping Woolie…


#126

Wrought magic. What will we be destroying?


#127

I mean, the Low, at least at my level, or former level, is all talk. No one actually does magic as far as I know. Most people I met there don’t even believe it’s real. It’s more like… conspiracy theories? Sorry, off on a tangent, that will happen. Apologies.


#128

No need to apologize! The amount of times we preface posts with “rampant speculation” is bananas


#129

Quick refresher for people who can’t remember types of magic off the top of their head (like me)


#130

Makes me wonder who Constance and Aether’s contacts were.


#131

So. It’s a spell roughly translated to “The Living Spirit” and according to my friend, who is like, master magic wiki person, they think it was initially created by a coven that formed in Japan sometime in the 12th or 13th century. So, a few low sites had records of this coven, and others had pieces of this spell recorded. And my friend kind of put 2 + 5 million together using contextual something-or-other, and thinks the coven may have created it.


#132

OMG, you have no idea how long I tried to find traces of Aether and Constance on the sites I could access…


#133

Aside from loving the Mountaineers I was pretty much an Aether stan.


#134

So were we. A boy who can do crazy modern magiq and who is courageous enough to risk his life to help others? Our kind of human.


#135

:100:


#136

Oh, speaking of, just going on the record, since we’re talking about adept babs, my user is SpiritSeer but I can’t see spirits. No super powers (that I have yet manifested.)


#137

Well one thing you learn from this group is that you don’t need any special powers to do incredible magiq and change the world. So.


#138

Dey you are impossibly good with words.


#139

Like I said, incredible magiq :endriwink:


#140

Sorry, back to the whole… thing. So the story of the coven goes that they were dabbling and playing with all sorts of minor magic. But then they created or found a spell that changed everything in the coven. They began only performing this spell. And things went bad. No one’s sure if it was the power that the spell gave them or maybe it just drove them crazy over time, but the cautionary tale goes that they played with powerful magic and were good people who eventually went bad and paid for it.
