Rapunzel

magic and stuff

Well, I was reading through an installment of jonathanmoeller's Choose Your Own Adventure posts, and our hero came across someone who was cursed.

Whereupon my impish little muse suggests that we hunt around the house and look for evidence, like a poppet under the hearthstone, of something that was used to lay the curse.  Very tradition folk wizardry -- indeed the whole gimick of natural magic, which is to natural philosophy what engineering, pharmacopeia etc are to science.  Not so fantasy wizardry.
