Im guessing the truth serum post doesnt apply to stuff like harry potter besides the legal repercussions lmao potion brewing: for all ur plot solving needs

So here’s the thing: yes and no. It all boils down to how magic works in your universe. 

Personally, when I write about magic, I don’t give magic the power over emotions or actions, because agency is everything in storytelling, and magic shouldn’t override a character’s choices – and the choices they don’t make. 

So this wouldn’t work in my stories. But that’s not saying it can’t work in yours. That’s the beauty of the Rule of Reality: you break it, you decide what it means

Is your magic kinetic? Empathic? Where does it come from – from Nature? From the Gods? From inside of us? Are we born with it? Is it Maybelline???! 

If you’re going to use magic in your world, before you write Page 1 of your story, I would suggest you have a good hard think about what you want out of magic in your ‘verse. Write it down. Write down the rules. And never, ever break them. 

Good luck with your stories!
