magic and sensawunda

So off goes the heroine, who's a wizard, investigating the foul magic -- well, not too foul, the problem is that it upsets a dragon, and dragons are as entitled to justice as anyone -- and it's annoying, but hey, it's a job.

Yes.  Exactly.  It's a job.

How do you slither in the magic to give it a sensawunda?

There's a good reason why they generally start wizards as  students.

Though I'm giving her some wizardry that she witnesses rather than casts herself.  And some nostalgiac memories of how magic it used to be.
