Wednesday #writingprompt: Red magic #writing #NaNoWriMo

I’m using Lucent Dreaming‘s writing prompt, because I ran out of ideas today!
What is Red Magic? Red is associated with love, and anger… both closely related. Passionate feelings are given the color red. I wonder why that is? It could be because blood is red, and this primal fact, deep in our brains, causes the association of red with painful, or powerful feelings of life and death.
Fire is also red… and is given the same characteristics of love and anger… consuming, unstoppable, destructive, hot…
What would red magic be? Probably something that flung you into blind, passionate love, set your mind ablaze with a broiling rage, and set you on fire in actual flames, all at once.
