A little conversation with my muse about just how things work in Merle's world...
Tessa: What is magic?
Muse: Magic is everything and nothing.
T: Great. That helps.
M: (mysterious smile)
T: I always thought that magic is somethings that stops the normal rules of the world from working. Something along the lines of chaos.
M: (shakes his head, still with that mysterious and admittedly somewhat sexy smile of his) Magic is an absence of chaos.
T: But...then how does it work?
M: Magic has its own rules, honey.
T: (smiles; her muse just called her honey, that can only be a good thing) It does? What are they?
M: (grins) Wouldn't make much sense to you right now. You'll figure it out.
T: (rolls her eyes at him) So what do you call something that doesn't follow the rules?
M: That would be a miracle.
