If there is one thing I love more in the work of action than magic is well-thought magic system. While magic is not something foreign in a work of fiction yet only few put complex thoughts into the working of the system. Basically most of the magic in stories work under the simple concept of ‘a wizard did it’. That is why I pur respect to authors who managed to think about how magic works in their story. It’s like taming the untameable since what makes magic is magical is the fact that it is cannot explain yet these people create more magic out of magic by creating explanation like magic (this sentence just made xzibit shed a tear). And just like a proper internet native, I honor those people I admire by dissecting and overanalyzing their works. It is also some kind of retribution from me because just like many great authors, I often steal tidbits of their ideas and merging them one another with my own creating some kind of copyright-ambiguous-frankenstein-monster. Oh, and of course these posts contain 100% fresh opinion. Sometimes I might get little facts wrong but as someone who has spent long time on the internet every opinions can be corrected since my opinion is much better than yours!
Ah… Harry Potter. This novel series is what welcomes me to the world of fantasy fiction. No matter how I hate HarryxGinny and RonxHermione now, I always refer Rowling’s tales of magic and puberty metaphor as some kind of trigger. Because of Harry Potter I fell in love with magic system in a story and because of the movies I started mimicking English accent every time I speak English. Just like how this series welcome me in my unhealthy obsession with magic system, I also welcome this series to be the first to be tortured under my opinions.
