Fantasy lovers, this is for you! Magic doesn't work the same way in every fantasy story and can be implemented differently. I want you to come up with a system of how magic works in a fantasy setting. Simply knowing the words of an incantation can be a baseline if you want, but I'll need more details. Here are some things to cover.

1. Where/when did magic originate? Was there a certain time period or event it was traced to, or has it always existed?

2. Must people be born with magic or can anyone do it?

3. Are symbols, objects, or certain actions needed to do magic?

4. What is the source of magical power? It can be unknown or uncertain.

5. Types or classiciations of magic.

Any other relevant information including if there are schools for magic, are there restrictions on who or where it can be used, how often can it be used, etc.

The more creative and in-depth the better. Most importantly, have fun!

I'm curious to see how the community would have written the story inspired by the video linked below. I used this video as inspiration for my short story "Dancing under the Ashes" which I tried to publish to a magazine. If anyone is up for the challenge, I would like for you to write under the same rules I was under.

- The story must be under 1,500 words

- Must be a speculative Sci-Fi, Fantasy or Slipstream self-contained story

-Tell the story hidden in the picture and music

I'll leave off the formating because It's not needed. I know this is a picture contest but you can take inspiration from the music too.

I tried my best to uncover the story in this picture and song but was unsatisfied, maybe the great writers on here can do it justice.

Glaed Balaston, son of legendary Aelian hero, Glanduil Balaston, has finally started his journey to become a Firebrand Knight. Together with the princess of Aelia and his fellow knights, he must face the perils of a lingering invasion by the evil Sangrealan Empire.

Along the way, they investigate imperial war machinations within the borders of Aelia and a mysterious teleportation device. Before they can ascertain its true purpose, they are discovered by the enemy and are forced to flee.

What could this mean? Why is the empire so deep within an Aelian mine? All the answers await Glaed, if they can only make it back to the capital in time with a warning for the king.

The Plight of Aelia is a very futuristic, science-fantasy, knight's tale. It tells the story of Glaed in the Kingdom of Aelia. The story has science based magic powered by a substance called aelium, which is converted into photon energy.

So if you want epic battles and an armored mage shooting photon from his hands, or even an archer teleporting to the best vantage points, you've come to the right place! So come, join me and Glaed on an amazing adventure of science and sorcery!

Carl Reagle is sent to a comet mining facility to investigate why the crew went into radio silence. What he uncovers will put him on a collision trajectory towards the unknown.

This is my winning entry for a  locked room mystery comp. As soon as I read 'not on Earth' I knew this was right up my alley so I've given it a go. I hope I got the science right, learned a good deal on the subject matter.
