I have noticed over the years that my magical supplies, books, etc. seem to be a magnet to people. No matter where I have hidden my things, either in plain sight or in a secret place, people seem to gravitate to them, want to handle them and/or ask questions about them.
I eventually placed everything in a closet with a deadbolt lock, but even then I had people asking me what I keep in the closet or why there was a lock on the door. Who does that??? Why the hell would anyone ask anyone what they keep in a closet or why it was locked?
I also noticed that whenever I am working on a spell, always, and I mean ALWAYS, an unexpected person shows up at the door.
It feels like there is some invisible (to me) red, blinking light with an arrow pointing to my magical supplies saying “Public Property. Please Feel Free to Handle” or if I'm doing a spell, one saying “Magical Work Ahead. Please Feel Free to Intrude.”
I'm curious if this is just me or if anyone else here has this happen.
Do you think our magic is like an invisible beacon; something subliminal that draws people to it?
I think our spells and supplies must emit some subtle vibration that naturally draws some people's attention. Seems logical to me considering how we use magic to affect people and circumstances.
