world of wonder

Was thinking a world was a little too Golden-Ageish and pretty.

Promptly the muse gave me a customs official who gave the heroine a passport with a written description of her -- including her clothes.  She has to apply for another one whenever she changes.

Also a spiteful soul who accuses her, and all the wizards of her city, of giving cover to diabolists, because they have magical animal companions; this allows diabolists cover for their familiars.

Still going to be a Golden Age, because that's our heroine's big problem.  No one's willing to help her because the problem will come to fruition too far off.
