imma be real with you i dont actually know that much witch fics (if anyone knows any please rec me !!!!!) BUT i do know some great supernatural/kind of magic au’s that you should DEFINATELY read
unlikely lighthouses (malum)
The thing that’s messing with him is that it hadn’t felt like a dream. The details haven’t spun together as the day goes on, and the colours and voices and sensations hadn’t been off in any way. His room had looked exactly like he remembered it looking when he was a kid, and Calum had been even wearing the right pair of soccer shorts—the ones with the number “1” peeled off on one leg so that his right said “19” and the other just said “9”. It hadn’t felt like a dream; it had felt like a memory.
Michael may feel fucked up sometimes, but he knows that’s impossible. Obviously it’s impossible. He could never have forgotten something like that. He never propositioned Calum when they were fourteen.
(in the middle of the North American leg of the ROWYSO tour, Calum builds a friendship bracelet and Michael starts to have dreams of another version of them)
this totally counts as a magic au and isnt just me shoving this fic down the throat of anyone willing to listen to me for longer than five seconds iTS NOT (LISTEN I FUCKING LOVE THIS FIC SO MUCH ITS SO FUCKING GOOD OH MY GOD IM GOING TO TATTOO THE ENTIRTY OF THIS ON MY ASS) on a more serious note, it has magical friendship bracelets and kind of alternate universes and ITS FUCKING AWESOME OH MY GOD GO READ THIS
in the jaws of the beast (ot4)
“You also drink blood now,” Luke points out.
“Like, exclusively,” Calum adds, looking down at the remnants of the hot dogs the rest of them had for lunch like he’s in mourning.
it has vampire!ashton! it has ot4! it has pining! honestly what more does a fic need? (the answer is nothing. absolutely nothing) SERIOUSLY THO THIS IS SO GOOD I FUCKING LOVE IT I LOVE IT!!!!!
a little magical assitance (muke)
Luke has known for a while that there is someone in the school watching over him and performing silent spells on him so he doesn’t miss the bottom stair and land on his face or lean too far over a banister only to fall and break his neck. It took him longer than it probably should to work it out, and, actually, Luke doesn’t actually realise himself until Ashton points out bluntly that you can only do a trip-fall-sprawl without actually touching the floor a few times before it’s obvious someone has their wand pointed at you, and it’s not just Peeves being abnormally friendly.
*chants* hogwarts au! hogwarts au! hogwarts au!
tell me something i don’t know (malum)
Sometimes, Calum hated his life.
“You’ve got to be kidding me,” he grumbled to himself as he sat upright, his phone flashing in his hand. “Dolphins? Fucking dolphins.”
He hauled himself out of bed and stomped angrily over to his closet to dig out his spare spandex. After a confusing run-in with Ashton’s boxers (he didn’t even live there, what the actual hell) he managed to wriggle into the neon yellow tights and bright green kevlar-reinforced leotard and pull halfway decent looking civvies (for three in the fucking morning, they’d take whatever he showed up in) over the top. As he dug out his keys and tried to find a good place to put his mobile that wasn’t in his underwear, he briefly wondered what the actual hell he’d done in a past life to make criminal dolphins an actual problem he had to deal with.
The world needed saving an awful lot more than necessary, in his opinion. Calum was mostly just grateful he was only responsible for Australia. Or, five times Calum kinda sorta hated his life as a superhero, and the one time he didn’t.
