Curses March 11, 2006
How do you feel about the subject of curses? Is it possible to curse someone? How often do you think it happens? What would make you believe that someone was working magic against you, and how would you handle the situation?
The thing, imo, that makes a curse so effective is intent. It doesn’t matter that someone out there might be a better or lesser magic user than I am, if they want me cursed, I’m cursed. All I can do is try to protect myself against the effects of the curse. I think the other factor in cursing is belief…which means that the person you want cursed has to believe that you cand to it and that you did, in fact, curse them. It’s part of what makes curses such an odd thing…you’d have too many elements to make them work.
