Welcome to another episode of Top Ten Tuesday, a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. This week’s theme is Valentine’s Day freebie which means you could pick any topic related to crush/love/Valentine’s Day.
Since most of the books I read are fantasy, I decided to make a list that incorporates magic. Hence, Eight Fictional Ways to Make Someone Fall in Love with You was born. There are only eight items in this list because I ran out of ideas. LOL. Please note that I’m using the term “fall in love” loosely, some of these methods will only make someone attracted to or infatuated with you and most of the time the effect is temporary. Precaution: side effects might happen and efficacy is not guaranteed!
- Amortentia (Harry Potter)
As per the wiki:
“Amortentia is the most powerful love potion in the world. It is distinctive for its mother-of-pearl sheen, and steam rises from the potion in spirals. Amortentia smells different to each person, according to what attracts them.”
There are several other mentions of love potion throughout the series, and I only pick this one as an example.
- Rioting (Mistborn)
Well, this only works if you’re an allomancer, specifically a rioter (or mistborn), and even then rioting only works by strengthening an emotion that’s already there. Therefore, this might not work on a complete stranger or a person who completely hates you.
- Glamour (Lunar Chronicles)
If you’re Lunar, then you might have a secret weapon called glamour. Glamour works by manipulating bio-electricity and the effects depend on the person in contact with you. A strong glamour could evoke strong feeling in the eyes of the beholder. It wears off quickly though. User beware: get rid of all the mirrors before trying this one out!
- Use your EO mind control ability (Vicious)
EO stands for ExtraOrdinary and if you, like Serena Clarke, got gifted the mind control ability, you could make people do whatever you want. It’s not the same as love, but hey they will jump off the cliff for you.
- Re-wire the brain (BZRK)
Here’s one that requires tenacity and not a small amount of time. If you join BZRK, you’ll be able to control biots, microscopic creatures able to enter human body and rewire the brain. It’s a high risk procedure, but it might be a good option if you’re looking for something more permanent.
- Employ a siren (Caster Chronicles)
Unlike rewiring, this one basically works immediately and the effect is short-term. If you’re looking to infatuate someone but only for a short period of time, you could contact dark caster in your vicinity.
- Hire an emotion worker (Curse workers series)
An emotion worker could ‘plant’ feeling on other people. The downsides? It’ll have to be applied often and the person affected might realize they’re being manipulated.
- Make a deal with a crossroads demon (Supernatural)
Okaay, this one is a bad idea because your soul is the price you have to pay once the deadline is due. Just ask Becky Rosen.
That’s it for today. Leave me a comment if you know of other methods, evil or not. 🙂 Until next time!
