It's Victoria Day today in Canada, which basically means everything is closed and there are fireworks. Which makes me wonder, are there any pyrotechnics in Yerkir? Fire-breathers that are not dragons at least? Though I guess when there's witches that can control the weather, card tricks/magicians and fire-breathers aren't that much of a spectacular. ~UC
!!! Happy Victoria Day, kiddo!!!!! Oh gosh, I dunno what you guys do on your national days, but I know down here there’s a lot of food and family and face-paint, so I hope you had a truly tremendous day! 💜
Now, good question! Yes there is as much of a range of pyrotechnics here as anywhere else with incendiaries and teenagers. It’s quite popular to make home-brew fireworks and assorted flashbangs, and then set them loose in your neighbour’s yard or the school toilet. But as for fire-breathing that is very much a dragon or particularly-unlucky-cursed-sod thing. (Side note: not all dragons have the ability to create flame! It’s really only those of the Incadeum family that come with a high enough overall body temperature to create superheated breath of any kind. And it’s only the Spark class of Incadeums - Cinderbacks and such, you know - that breathe fire; other species will spew boiling water, lava, steam, superheated bile (that’s gross, don’t get in the way of it. It’s not quite acid, but you’ll wish it was).
And on the contrary! Magicians are still quite popular!! See, everyone knows how magic works; it’s a science, after all! But street magic or show magic - now that’s sleight of hand. There’s no incantations or hand wiggles - there’s just - just a card! And it’s your card!! And how did they do that??!?!?!? Card magicians and rabbits-from-hats magicians are still quite popular, and thoroughly enjoyed by many Yerkirians, if not held in the same regard as traditional magic.
Thanks much for the interest, kiddo!! I’ll see ya round
