Magic is a sex thing.
People don’t get that. They think it’s power, religion, arcane and eldritch whatevers throwing sparklies around a room. And yeah, ok, sometimes it’s like that. But it’s all basically sex in the end.
There’s a binary to it. Aggressive, destructive male forces, and healing, creative females. And yes, I know that’s some regressive thinking, but give me a minute.
See, magic is a fusion of those forces. It’s creating and destroying at once. Copulation on a basic and a cosmic scale. Crudely: magic is just getting the universe to fuck the way you want it.
