- "You are looking through a tear. Tears are like windows between Negative Space and the other worlds."
- ―Alice Hartley
Tears are portals between worlds, most commonly seen in Negative Space. However, tears sometimes open up in other worlds such as the Real World. This phenomenon appeared to the Nowhere Boys in Bremin when a tear was opened to Andy Lau in the Negative Space. Objects are able to pass through naturally occurring tears, but flesh and blood can not.
Tears could also be opened by spells such as the Opening Spell.
