Shared Universe Meta-Fiction
« on: November 08, 2017, 06:27:02 am »

Arianna put up a post in the main group that touches something I've been thinking about for a LONG time:

"I think all those of us who are/have been somehow involved in the writing /publishing industries should start churning out books (esp. Children's books), both in English and our languages, where characters use magical systems that can work in this world
Same goes for other media ofc"

One way we can start making some serious strides into making the world a more Magickal place is by creative use of fiction. Basically start spreading Magickal ideas and concepts through fictional works, ideally, through YA fiction. Inspire their minds to be more creative , to be more Magickal.

I'd like to start a discussion on creating a "shared universe" with multiple tie-ins and reference points within all the works that give as many rabbit holes as we can towards more Magickal thought.

One thing I have considered, however, and this is HARD for me as a Marauder, is that if this is going to work, it has to be done with subtlety. We can't bludgeon kids over the head with an Ellisean mallet. We have to provide clues, not neon signs.

Anyway, I figured we could discuss various ins and outs here. If we get it into it on Facebook, the whole thing will be TOO transparent and obvious.
