Wizarding Bee Levels: A New Year's Premise

slapdashmonuments

Inspiration hits with a flash, stories written on the go. A rumble of laughter and the tale is heard only in echoes. The wind blows me in a new direction. Whom shall I visit next?


So by now we all know that there’s no logical explanation why honeybees can fly, weight and wings and stuff, it shouldn’t be possible, but bees fly anyway. Perhaps bees are magical creatures, then. And the drop in bees’ quantity is alarming to the wizarding world as well as the Muggle world.

Muggles were not supposed to see bees flying at first, but some spell went awry and they were spied and drawn and written about and the Muggles just sort of got used to it, assuming there was some reason for the ability to fly that they just didn’t get. Maybe some thought it was magical in the superstitious ages, but culture has outgrown that notion…only the Mediaevals were right.

This is the story of the Witch who created the first honeybees, and why…

I really like the simplicity of the subject and the directness of the reveal. Also, I always thought bees were magical.

@Mighty-Joe, I didn't know. It's curious to me that yours was a comment regarding apicology and your username is about an ape character. Apiculiar combination!
