Dream log: I fucking learned magic.
It was part ancient ritual, part new-agey energy channeling, taught to me by an old lady looking for a successor. There were a lot of books involved, a lot of complex hand gestures. At one point I was given a kitchen knife and told I had to scare the shit out of this super elderly mage; it didn't work, so I kissed him instead, figuring he'd be some transphobic old fuck, but THAT didn't work bc he actually was pretty nice and into it???
