A Word About Mating
The reason true love does not permit of human interference is simple: when we choose a partner or chase after a potential relationship, we are invariably doing so for personal reasons. But the only sort of sexual relationship that allows for alchemy is one that doesn't meet with our personal requirements, and often as not goes against them. These alchemical parings are arranged by Spirit, by the Faery, and the Faery do not make mistakes.
When the time comes for us to be matched with an alchemical partner, for a week a year or a lifetime, it will happen, and there's nothing we need do or can do to ensure that (tho we do have the option of co-operating!).
On the other hand, any attempt to hurry or anticipate such a matching is the one thing that might, potentially, sabotage such a paring. Because, if we personally invest in an alchemical paring, such investment might contaminate the purity of the match, and render it useless.
"Let him not seek after this; for thereby alone can he fall from it." (Liber Al)
So either way, we are wasting our precious time and energy, if we ever find ourselves personally investing into a potential match.
