I don’t enjoy feeling vulnerable. However, when I am or when I allow myself to be, it is usually when I have lain myself open. I have opened myself and been completely forthright and honest with another. Both of those things can be quite dangerous to a Wytch or to one of the Fae, if entered into foolishly. It is quite rare that I allow that to happen, because a Wytch has to leave herself some means to escape, a loophole in order to wheedle out of any given predicament or promise if necessary. Magic is all about control. Control of that kind often makes a person feel less vulnerable. Whether or not you can hold that control; that is the trick.
Invulnerability is an illusion. But even I have allowed myself to be wrapped up in that illusion and hide in it like a child hides under a blanket. There is some comfort in that illusion, and if one is a true Magus, they are more than able to insure that others also partake of the illusion.
