* In a spin-off book of the W.I.T.C.H. comics, Taranee's brother, who's been spending lots of time with his girlfriend instead of her, ends up showing up much too late to see a basket game with her favorite team like he promised. She refuses to buy his (heavily implied to be true) excuses about car trouble and snaps that she wishes he'd just disappear. She immediately regrets those words because as a Guardian of the Veil, her words have ''a lot'' of power.

The reasons are both supernatural and mundane. Lending weight to the proverb "you're only as good as your word", you have an obligation to follow through on your promises, lest you face social (or even supernatural) consequences. This is why there is nothing more dangerous than making [[ThePromise promises]] lightly (even [[ImpossibleTask impossible ones]]). Firstly, some fool hero ''will'' complete the task and since your word is binding you'll be compelled to keep your promise. The other is because you are ''never'' alone... someone or some''[[TheFairFolk thing]]'' will be listening, and may well decide to give you [[BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor exactly what you wish for]]. More than one such tales starts because someone said something they shouldn't have, or started making [[DisproportionateRetribution very]] [[BreakTheHaughty ill advised]] [[{{Pride}} boasts]].
