Magic Tap on the Magic Tip
Ever wondered what it is with magic and noses? Why witches have such big noses, and TV witches twitch their noses to make magic happen?
Well, I mean sure.
A person in magic failure “forgets” all their resources, helpful learnings, even basic rules and regulations on how the world works and simply collapse into a wailing heap, a helpless state in which they will think and say all manner of nonsense that is only a symptom of the process itself and thereby “not worth the paper it isn’t written on” as the saying goes.
That explains quite a bit actually. And also, monsters.
