The Daily Prophet
Practical Jokers On The Rise
We have heard tale of a disturbing new trend among young witches and wizards where they are giving magical candies from their local joke shops to ordinary children. Scandalous! Hiccough Sweets, Fainting Fancies, U-No-Poo, and Chocolate Frogs have all been used in recent noted incidents to cause laughable, if temporarily damaging, effects on these ordinary children who are completely unsuspecting.
The most recent incident noted was a devious witch who gave a not-so-nice ordinary child a Chocolate Frog, causing the friend she was with to panic and start jumping on tables in a public restaurant for fear that the sweet treat that’d now come to life would attempt to lunge at her, leading to quite a bit of food knocked to the ground and the poor girl’s parents being called to get them before they caused any further chaos.
Another notable recent incident was surrounding an ordinary school, where a child took magical candy they’d been given at a birthday party and unleashed a round of fainting that had nurses in a tizzy after the Fainting Fancies made their rounds through all of the grade levels.
Thankfully, all instances seem to have been done in the name of good, clean fun.
Magical Integration & The Extra-Ordinary Results
Lions, and tigers, and bears; Oh my! The feelings are still very mixed now that magical and non-magical cultures are living in a weirdly wonderful togetherness, and we understand the hesitation, but there’s one huge upside we’ve found: Job!
There have been many reports of the magical community getting jobs that blend them in with the ordinary community. Magicians for hire, circus owners and performers who can actually ensure no animals are harmed through magical means, and fortune tellers are all lucrative ventures that we’re here to tell you have been certified as GREAT ways to earn a little extra money!
There’s also reports of magical abilities enhancing ordinary jobs, Healers working in non-magical hospitals and using their abilities for good, seamstresses who use their wandless magic to speed up their work, and singers who have been able to use their magical capabilities to really amp up the show and hype the crowd up. We are really loving the innovation we’re seeing, and will keep you informed on any new information we get!
