Ah, the joyous sounds of crashing wordcounts….
Hopefully the next bit will be less talky and more action. Granted, the talky part was needed to set up some of the later mayhem – not just the information, but the fact that this new and very scary info on how magic actually works is starting to get out to the general public. Who are, quite reasonably, not at all happy to learn that how they thought magic worked is not quite accurate.
Or to be more blunt, they were lied to up, down, and sideways by the people who were out in the spotlights, and the people who knew better and didn’t have ill intent were hiding in the shadows trying not to get noticed.
Yeah. This will get messy.
Part of the interesting bits going on under the surface is who’s on humanity’s side, and why. There are going to be a multitude of reasons, from “I hate the other guys” to “hey, I like X person, we get along okay” to the rational “You do realize how many billions of humans there are on the planet, right? And you want to pick a fight with all of them? Not me, man!”
*G* Of course, every bunch has its idiots….
