A very good friend of mine has started looking into magic: he’s doing research to figure out if and how he wants to practice. 

He was talking to me and saying it was fascinating how some people drew their power from the land or the sea, some from tools and formula, some from stars or gods or spirits. 

“I mean… I know you get yours from the dead – which is cool.”

“I – I’m sorry what?”

“Your power. It comes from the dead. That’s the energy you use, right?”

Thankfully he kept straight on talking about power sources and magical philosophy because I didn’t really know what to say. 

I wanted to say “Dear boy what on earth is wrong with you? I’m a witch. I do all sorts of magic using all sorts of tools. I’m a necromancer, sure – I chat with the dead all the time. But I don’t somehow use ‘death energy’ to make someone a good luck spell. This isn’t D&D or Magic the bloody Gathering.” 

But I had no idea how to say that politely or without giggling like some sort of confused and asthmatic goblin. So I didn’t.
