    No, not at all. I wanted to be a white witch.
    Oh but i did fear bad vibes which i supposed could be emitted from persons so then they could be construde as baddie witches...at least temporarily.

    Forgot about this thread, anyway, I remember them being more of a terror figure growing up, the featured more as terrifying things in movies and TV. Roald Dahl's The Witches was read on a storytime TV show for kids repeatedly for instance, lots of culturally specific TV programming took place around halloween which featured the archetypical evil, green, cauldrine stirring crone, those things have all probably been ditched now as offensive to wiccans or something. Also I recall a fear of witches steming from King Solomans mines and other films like it screened on TV, seriously, one of those shows has a witch who uses hyponsis to stop a guy breathing, her appearence was freakish too and at one point she is fixing to have an iron mask heated up in volcanic lava droped on someones face or some. Also Temple of Doom was scary and I associated that with witchcraft and black magic.

    I just dont get the identification with them or lack of fear of them or magic that a lot of you do or did growing up. Although I will admit that I had an incredible fear of a old lady who lived in an old house with a neglected and overgrown garden, it had creeping ivy all over a wooden arc construct and huge over grown hedges, also lots of weeds overgrown up through the patio. My dad had to go speak to this person once I had to go along, I dont remember much more about it because I was a toddler, besides total and abject fear. It didnt help that my cousins who lived next door and took great pleasure in tormenting me with their friends told me grisly stories about witches and child sacrifice and kidnapping being true and rife. They would tell me when there were heavy police prescences because of the troubles that it was a witch hunt because another child was missing. Probbaly slowly cooked alive and eaten. Or eaten alive while forced to watch their lower limbs being consumed.

    Man I had a pretty traumatic childhood :-P

    As a kid, my heroes were typically anti-heroes because anti-heroes are typically distanced enough from the protagonist to be interesting and yet close enough to be trusted. You can always trust an anti-hero to act on his own accord; his motives are pure because factions do not bind him. When he rescues you, he means it. When he screws you over, he means it. Witches scared me a bit; I even felt that modernized witches like Harry Potter, Samantha from Bewitched, and other arcanists portrayed as benevolent drank too much of their own Kool-aid for their own good. In that sense, they're a bit like everyone but with a different choice of wardrobe.

    I certainly didn't fear witches when I was growing up. I wanted to be a sorcerer, myself, and to that end, I would fill entire notebooks with incantations, potion recipes, magical diagrams, and directions for the summoning of demons. When my parents discovered my spell books, they took them away and later had several members of their church congregation surround me with a Prayer Circle. In a Christian Prayer Circle, a bunch of older men move in and put their hands all over your body, so that God's energy can flow into you.

    My grandmother used to tell me she was a witch, because she's insane.

    I always thought they were cool.

    This movie --although the witches are ugly & scary in most cases-- made me think witches were awesome.. however certain parts made me become suspicious of particular inanmiate objects, like certain paintings. I'll not spoil it for you kiddies.

    I thought they were really cool, and wanted to be one :o

    Then again, most of the witches I was exposed to in my early childhood were from Harry Potter, the Bartimaeus Trilogy, and other really cool fantasy/adventure stories.

    WHO WOULDN'T WANNA BE A WITCH??

    Not at all. I always wanted to be one. And now I am.

    I was afraid of a lot of things though, and I'm still kind of afraid of ghosts and spirits.
