The dark side of being a Vitki

Vitkis have a dark side. I personally am unfamiliar with this aspect of our work. I only work with positive energy. I figure what I send out will come back to me somehow. So I choose to do only positive workings. I’ve been tempted though …

Darker sides of Vitki work tend to center around curses. Vitkis in the Lore are recorded performing curses. Volvas too. And their curses seem to work. So I will simply have to take these accounts at face value. Curses are done by Vitkis and they work. So says the lore.

But I guess I just figure we have enough negative energy floating around the multiverse why add any more?  We definitely don’t have enough positive energy though. So that’s where I choose to do my work.

Before doing any working I tend to think it through. All the way up and down the chain I try to imagine if anyone could possibly be harmed by the work. If in thinking something through it becomes apparent that I will harm someone or something by the working I scrap it. Or try to rethink it so that no one will be harmed. It takes a little extra time but I feel it’s worth it. I just won’t send anything harmful out. It’s against my personal values to do so.

Does this make me a fluffy bunny Vitki?  Maybe. But I’d much rather have that kind of energy hanging over my head. Negative energy of any kind I can do without. I can use the runes for only good and never run out of the possibilities for their application. Why not choose the good over the bad?  The romance of the dark sorcerer is great for works of fiction. But reality is a much different thing. In reality the dark just keep getting darker and darker till they’re a shadow of themselves. That’s not my fate. That’s for others to explore. I’ll stay in the sun.
