personally i just want to know. if i ever get cursed i would like to know how to get rid of it and protect myself [which i was cursed once, luckily i had studied so i knew what to do.] many people think curses are the end of the world, panic, and make things worse. when really its just a lot of negative energy and can be dealt with if you know how. i also like collecting spells, because if someone has a problem, i would like to provide a solution.
i think a lot of teens discover magick and think they can get anything they want, so they cast a spell to get their crush, cast a spell for good grades, cast a spell for money, and when it all comes crashing down, cast a spell to get revenge because it was that guy/girl you never got along with who cursed you to lose you crush, marks, and money. the reality that balance is the law of the land never crosses their minds. i think thats why theres a fascination. you've either been cursed, or you were wronged and need revenge. mostly, its life, but thats a scary thought, people like to feel in control.
