STORY ABOUT A KID WHO LOVES STAGE MAGIC WHO ACCIDENTALLY SIGNED UP FOR A REAL MAGIC SCHOOL AND NOW HAS TO FAKE PROFICIENCY IN MYSTICAL ARTS VIA SLEIGHT OF HAND

the final exam they're locked in a room with a monster and instead of using magic they just fucking deck it

Show thread

now i'm just thinking about sleight, which is the polar opposite of this

Show thread

@HTHR or the other way around: kid can conjure fireballs but he doesn’t know how to do a card force or mark a deck

@HTHR please please pleASE tell me you're ok with me writing this it's such a great idea

@braveasanoun go for it! the magic school thing, not sleight. someone's already written sleight

@HTHR
Ever read The Last Unicorn, by Peter Beagle? The protagonist, Schmendrick the magician (schmendrick is jewish slang for "loser") can't do magic if his life depended on it.

Until he finds the last living unicorn on Earth, then the real magic happens.

I also recommend the animated film.
