I want to see a world that’s… well, let’s start like Harry Potter, with the secret magical and separate muggle worlds, with muggleborns and halfbloods and purebloods, and kids who make a surprise discovery one day. Only, I want to see a world where the most powerful magic users, consistently, are the muggleborns.
It’s not a guarantee, it’s not like every muggleborn is stronger than every pureblood, but there’s a definite pattern, and everyone knows it. Because magic is power, but it’s also wonder; magic is the impossible made real and the awesome spread of all that could be. And there is no moment in any life more magical than the moment a muggleborn child discovers magic is real. They will go through their lives forever in the echo of that moment, that knowledge that magic can do absolutely anything and they can do magic.
The purebloods keep up, because they have milennia of history and tradition behind their spells and rituals, and belief is a kind of magic too. Their magic is dependable, reliable, easy to predict, and that’s useful.
But the big magic, the magic that rips the world apart and puts it back together, the magic that warps time and makes legends, that is the realm of the muggleborns.
Because purebloods view magic like clouds; sometimes they’re pretty, sometimes they’re powerful, sometimes they’re just “ugh I hope it doesn’t rain today, I planned a picnic.”
Muggleborns look at magic and they see wonder, potential, power; they see magic.
