Challenge #03686-J033: Magical Awakening

They lived in a simple apartment building in the middle of a large, busy, city. They'd always been considered a bit of an oddball, and loved books on fantasy. Then came that fateful evening, they did something they didn't think was possible, to save a kid from injury, and an individual who seemed old and wise, and yet youthful in appearance, came to them, to explain that they, in this modern world, possessed something the modern world tended to eschew. Actual magic. -- Anon Guest

I didn't think about it at the time.There's just some moments where you act first and realise what you did later. The usual hero shit that's like the moment of revelation. I shouldn't have been able to parkour my way up to catch that kid just as they were losing their grip on the ledge.

As an extra bonus fun time, my compy likes to cut off

Including my blog here.

Tomorrow is all about being there for the fam.

IF I can squeeze in an instant at a later hour, it will not be streamed. If I

Into the Wild Blue Yonder

Audacity... flies. The learning curve is so gentle that Flat Earthers would declare it a straight line. I owe these guys some money.

I do remain slightly vexed that you have to manually flick between the move and selection tools, but it's a price I can pay for snipping out awkward pauses, re-takes, gulps, and horking up lumps of mucous.

It happens.

So far, I have twelve minutes of total audio so far, and the knowledge of how to cut, copy, paste,
