First a disclaimer. Mortals, especially young ones should not smoke. Your inferior bodies doesn’t have the ability to filter or deal with the occupation as well as a superior being like myself. It is true stupidity on the part of beings like you with such vulnerable physiologies to poison yourself. But then again intellect isn’t exactly the strong suit of humanity.
All that said turning people into cigarettes is something I’ve been known to do from time to time. The spells get humans a chance to be useful for once in their short lives and is a way to teach them not to anger me.
Many witches use this spell for the same reason I do to recharge ones energies. The act of smoking actually allows you to absorb the mortals life energy to replenish your own magical energies in a way that is both subtle and relaxing.
As for the mortal being used. I would like to think that during their punishment they realize that their foolishness wasn’t worth masking an ash of themselves.
..Did you know?
When a person turned into an object is destroyed, they can still be turned back? Objects are what they are objects and cannot really be permanently done away it. So despite ending up in my holder there is still a chance you may walk be a person again….a small minuscule hope.
