talk street magic to me.
think: drawing power from the metro lines, illusionists busking illegally, shimmering lights disintegrating as they run, plant mages tending tiny rooftop and windowbox gardens. wizards taking a while to key into the magic in new cities when they move.
there are elementary kids learning basic sigils on the playground, middle schoolers down the block making friendship talismans and amulets for everyone, and numerologists who’ll do your math homework for $5 or divine your fortune for $10.
consider mass-texting luck and speed spells when parties get broken up by the cops, magic graffiti, graffiti in wild places, and graffiti that vanishes when the police roll by. swirling, living murals on the sides of buildings, murals that—if you listen closely—can be heard, not just seen. there’s the good and the bad, alchemists dealing on the side to support their experiments, necromancers in forensics, and little old landladies concocting remedies for your aches and pains.
there are secret groups in the urban sprawl, communities and societies and rises and falls of supernatural beings, those whose magic runs thicker in their bodies and their blood. there’s magic and there’s mayhem and quite a lot of people who are up to absolutely no good, no good at all.
