This peculiar illness strikes those who, after seeing The Craft
or the like, think "Wow! Magick
!" and immediately drag out the chalice and candles and knife-they-use-as-an-athame
and expect to be able to fly and summon Lucifer
. This condition usually lasts until someone whacks them upside the head with a cluebat
or until they actually manage to do
some magick, which usually makes them run home to mommy
Oddly enough, IWS is very close to, and sometimes a precursor of, MegaPagan Syndrome.
