A pet peeve of mine is the depiction of magic in popular media. Too often magic isn’t portrayed as, well, magical. Magic is a thing of shadows and dreams, of mystery and awe and drunken midnight dances; it’s not simply there, in an obvious and mechanistic way like X-men superpowers; simply throwing fireballs around isn’t very magical. (Compare e.g. the Lord of the Rings books to the movies.)

CLAMP is a creator-team who definitely Gets It. XxxHolic would be the obvious choice to show you guys, but for the One Perfect Moment week I'd like to draw one early example that stayed with me all these years (I hope it counts for the theme!). It’s from 1992’s Tokyo Babylon.

Greetings, Mortals! Chocochuy reporting for duty.

Today I would like to take some of your time to pay homage to the women that we all consider as the queens of our lives and to whom we will always be on debt for the gift of life. I think it does not take rocket science to deduce that I am talking about our mothers. It might get too personal but I hope you enjoy this, comrades.

Thanks for everything, Mom! )
