Rantglass - because that's how things are.


Seven to the last.

No doubt they are intelligent and quick-witted, but I cannot stand it: why do magicians have to be painted as pompous popinjays – always seen to be airily preening their feathers and cunningly pulling only the right strings?

No matter young or old, bumbling apprentice or mighty wizard; from Jonathan Strange to John Mandrake to Raistlin Majere, they all shine like diamonds boldly set adrift in the rough seas, oozing with quiet confidence and fiery ambitions that, well… actually makes me admire them even more.

“Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Great men are almost always bad men.”

We do know that sometimes, we have to be cruel to be kind.

  2. Spoonfork – Hmm, I suppose they have to be so, in a way; one wrong word or enunciation while doing a spell might bring adverse effects!

    But they still needn’t be so cocky. Heh.
