Okay, so on the topic of powers that will act out our emotions whether we want them to or not, and only seem to have terrible applications, or applications with prohibitive costs.

It seems to me that our immediate priority isn't necessarily finding a way to be good, it's to find something to shoot for. Something Gatrut can believe in and work towards, or else this is going to get dark very fast. She needs an objective, a reason to have hope. Despair or hopelessness is going to lead to either death or disaster.

One loophole that I think I noticed- the terrible costs only seem to come with doing something good and/or deliberately. Witch-powers lashing out due to emotion (swearing, anger, fear, etc) just happens- without soul reaping or baby rape factories. If we're willing to sacrifice control or intent, we get power cheaper.

It might be that we can find a way to use that. With some small measure of control in when and how our more dangerous emotions manifest, we might be able to turn them to useful purposes. Use a weapon as a tool. For instance, we brought down a tree. What if we wanted to fell a tree? There are all kinds of practical purposes a lot of black magic could to turned to.

The big if there is if we can exert even a measure of control over it.

I like it. The obvious solution to try was witch-vigilante, but applications like witch-lumberjack are definitely worth investigating.

Wizards and Sorceresses use the power of innocent souls to bend reality. From what we've seen, even without using a soul directly, some horrible torture must be applied to perform magic.

I think Witches have a soul that leaks power. When their (negative?) emotions go out of control, that leak intensifies, and curses manifest. The lost power weakens the soul, driving the Witch mad.

The problem with the "soul leaking power" theory is that you can't get power from evil souls, so that would prevent evil witches from having power of their own which definitely does not seem to be the case. (Unless evil souls still have power but it is just harder for others to extract.)
