Following the adventure-of-the-week that was Magical Thorn Act 1, this time we’re flashing back to the origin story.

___

Tiernan (thinking): Can that boy on the field really be the one I’ve been searching for? He’s nothing like a magical is supposed to be.

I was expecting someone big-hearted but average at school. He does well on all his tests.

He’s not cute and adorably insecure — he’s elegant and confident.

I was looking for earnest but clumsy. This kid is the star of a sports team!

He seems to have a power signature . . . but what if I ‘m wrong? What if he’s not —

Thorn: Be right back, I just need to get some —

Leif (thinking): Gotta get these to the team before —

[CRASH]

Leif: Ahh, I’m so sorry! Here — let me help you with — oops, sorry again —

Tiernan (thinking): Ahhh. There’s where the cute-and-clumsy was hiding.

/人◕ ‿‿ ◕人\: I can grant your wish, but the power to do so lies within you. Make the contract, and become a Magical!

Thorn: What I want, most of all, is for everyone to be safe!

/人◕ ‿‿ ◕人\: … Nevermind. We tried that once…. It was this whole thing.

Tiernan: Your loss, ‘Cubae.

…So what would happen if a magical individual was selected based on competancy rather than destiny?

I think that’s when you get Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha.

It’s a factor in the non-AU comic here, too. Magical aptitude is random, but you have to train to make it useful, and then you get jobs based on your specific skillsets and competence level.
