Oh, please, do not misguide my curiosity. I have a personal view of magic but I do not criticize any other one, mostly because magic is different to each and everyone (my motives for asking these questions on the first place).
As I said, I am in love with it, not because of its uses, which are clearly magnificent, nor its power or beauty, what also can entice the mind. Magic, at my eyes, is like a woman (or some men, like Lue, but not the point), temperamental, unpredictable, mysterious but also very charming, caring and sweet. By all means, magic can seduce one to do stupid things. It's true that I romanticize magic, but what there is about magic that is not romantic?
Now, about the feeling... Magic, to me, feels like sex: Addictive, filling, exhaustive, desired, arousing and... worth (m)any sacrifices. hehe.
But it is true that each and every spell, at each and every occasion, feels differently. (I could place some examples, but I dare not make a bigger post.)
