Ffion is going to write a very strongly-worded letter to the Fairliestoke Coven

Aforementioned Stoker's Bazaar. (You can’t really see the name because of the lighting, I was bad at comic then.)

I have to agree with Ffion here:
If plain and simply not selling sinister magic items to non-witches were a thing, they wouldn't have to intervene only after some the demonic stuff has already happened.

They're trying to strike a balance between "ensuring things don't get into the wrong hands" and "not telling people what to do"

If 2020 has been any indication, sometimes you need to just tell people what to do lol

That makes sense. We do outlaw mass murder, but there's no reason not to sell thermonuclear weapons to everyone who has the money, or credit, to pay for them. As long as they aren't using their kiloton or megaton ordnance to actually kill people it makes a great conversation piece to display in the living room for when company comes over. Just make sure everyone is wearing their rad suits before you sit down and put the kettle on.

*Puts on sunglasses and crosses arms* I'm always wearing my rad suit.

Hold on, I think I've tripped over one of the slanguage ambiguities of the English language.

Are you claiming your birthday suit is particularly "rad" for some reason, are you habitually wearing so much radiation shielding that sitting next to dangerous radiation sources isn't threatening to you, or are you implying something else? Whichever it is, I would like to know more, please.

I was just implying my clothes are radical (they aren't, for the record, I live in sweatpants these days)

Aw, as a creator you should have more pride in your lies than that. Mind you, that takes effort you should probably spend on more important work than mouthing off to someone on the internet.

As long as you make sure to do one sit-up, push-up or other exercise move between the time you put on the sweats and take them off you can respectably claim that you wear them for training. It'll even be partly true. This life hack is so much more useful for improving people's quality of life than most of what gets called a life hack, as long as you don't take it too far anyway.

I dunno about that one: She is Welsh enough that she may have voted for it.

Dark witch, eh? A zillion, terrible snark jokes come to mind but I'll spare us all... except for giving you this URL:

I have to wonder about the price structure and economics of selling products with magical properties that can serve as art materials, at a price that's competitive to the regular product without magic. Do the producers and retailers get a cut on every cursed item they sell to the unsuspecting? Is it big enough to match or exceed the cost difference? Who pays that cost difference, why, and how do they know how much to pay? If everybody knew what was actually going on how many art students would go for it despite knowing about the curses? Traditionally art students are the poorest of the poor unless they're trust fund babies, so I could see it if there's a 10% discount.

10% Student discount! 40% chance items are not cursed!
