With all the charms, potions, spells, and the ability to bring these potent accessories into cohesive deliveries; I've often wondered what the various practitioners get up to in the day to day mundane parts of living.
I mean this in the practical sense of manipulating their environment.
I've but questions numbering three ( and a couple of rationals why I ask ) and only you can answer me!
Q1.) Do you use magic to give your car better fuel economy?
Rational 1.) My thought is the magical control you exert over the wind direct and intensity would allow a tail wind for each direct of the journey. Some tests have indicated that even mild tail winds can increase fuel economy by as much as 20%.
Rational 2.) I've considered that even better fuel economy could be obtained if you were to magically transport yourself by independent flight or de-materializing and re-manifesting at your choice of destination.
Q2.) Though spell-craft are you able to obtain the freshest produce for supper?
Rational 1.) The strong relationship shared with the Dryads and Devas of the plant kingdom seems to make this simple enough. They should be giving up bountiful berries, bursting fruits, and luscious vegetables in abundance when ever you walk by any garden.
Rational 2.) For the extremely gifted adept I would imagine the crisper must fill itself back up and the kitchen table no doubt groans under the weight of bounty that replenishes spontaneously.
Q3.) When you're finished causing the suspension of physical laws or bending reality, time travel, the universal fabric; or whatever manipulations you make to relative streaming consciousness - have you ever felt drained or even under appreciated by the people you love and associate with?
Rational 1.) Even in the realm of magic it seems reasonable to expect the effort of achieving a result comes with the expenditure of energy, albeit in a form that is esoteric, yet still it seems reasonable that a tremendous amount of conversion is going on. Since it isn't common knowledge what forces are being brought to bear then it is reasonable to make the assumption that others outside the process may not recognize the efforts.
Rational 2.) It seems like magic takes a lot of effort and some people are naturally skeptical of others involvement in phenomena. As well some are simply jealous of others ability. Sibling rivalry springs to mind right away!
I can hear it in my mind.
Little brother: "Mom, Julie is turning the basketball court into a sacred oak grove!"
Julie: "Shut the hell up you little bastard."
Mother: "I've told you to stop messing with magic Julie; we're Baptists for Christ's sake! Think about what grandmama would say?"
Julie: "No one appreciates me! I feel so drained."
LOL Bunny you crack me up.
But really that final sceniro came a little to close to a family reality for me, a minus the Baptisits thing and the oak grove...lol.
