* ScrewTheRulesIMakeThem: Magic usually functions under the MagicAIsMagicA principle. However, magic is also a SentientCosmicForce with a will and objectives of its own (and a penchant for drama). If it wants to, [[http://www.egscomics.com/index.php?id=1833 it can completely change the rules of how it works]], and is stated to have done this several times in the past.
-->'''Emissary of Magic''': Magic is a force capable of defying the physical laws of the universe. It doesn't ''have'' to work the way it does now.

* TheScream: So far, there have been [[http://www.egscomics.com/?date=2008-05-07 four]] [[http://www.egscomics.com/?date=2011-12-09 different]] [[http://www.egscomics.com/index.php?id=1632 screams]] [[http://www.egscomics.com/index.php?id=2022 heard]] by aliens.



* SentientCosmicForce: Magic has [[http://www.egscomics.com/index.php?id=1832 a will and objectives of its own]]. It's known to have a flair for the dramatic and even seems at times to have a sense of humor. Among its objectives is a desire to not be used by more than a small fraction of the people, and magic ''will'' rewrite its [[MagicAIsMagicA own rules]] if necessary to prevent widespread use. Or, in the words of the author: "Magic is a hipster that doesn't want to go mainstream."
