While stumbling through old posts (searching for a quote I once quoted), I stumbled upon an old meme...
- Grab the nearest book.
- Open the book to page 123.
- Find the fifth sentence.
- Post the text of the next 4 sentences on your LJ along with these instructions.
- Don't you dare dig for that "cool" or "intellectual" book in your closet! I know you were thinking about it! Just pick up whatever is closest.
- Nominate five people to post this meme.
'...The rage is similar, in that it throws off the constraints of your normal self, your normal physicality, rationality and emotions. In fact, it is possible that the berserk state is itself a form of Free Magic, or is derived from some ancient effect of that magic.'
'I never really understood what Free Magic actually is,' said Clariel. 'Our teacher just said it was evil, something to fear, and warned us to seek help should we ever encounter any...'
From Clariel, by Garth Nix.
