Okay, so in honor of Descendants 2 coming out tonight, I thought I’d share a headcanon.
So, since Jafar was a sorcerer, I think he’d teach Jay some magic. Just a few lessons here and there, until he got pretty good. Of course, since they’re on the Isle, the magic lessons are useless.
Likewise, Jay never thought to tell anyone. Besides, his main focus was always stealing.
That is, until he got to Auradon. Jay would start trying to practice his magic in secret, until one day he made a mistake during a spell. Then, he would go to Mal for help.
Mal started giving him lessons, and teaching him the spells that she knew. They grew even closer due to their shared use of magic.
He even grew close to Jane, because she knows magic too. Soon enough, he’s just as good as Mal.
And even though they’re already good, Mal and Jay start a magic user’s club with Jane.
Jay makes friends with all the other kids who know magic, and learns so many more spells.
