She was just a regular, unwanted kid, until she was lucky enough to get a job under the best magician in the world! Unfortunately for her, her new boss is a self absorbed sociopath.
Updates are currently Monday, with some sporadic mid-week updates if I have time!
@Shadowpie: I'll answer that here just in case for some reason, I don't get to it in-story. Although every magician is stuck with their own hat for their whole life, there are tailors and such who can redesign the outside. When Harold got his outfit changed, his hat was changed as well. :)
@mananabiscuit: Yep, you can lose your hat like anything else! And when it comes to making the hats, all hats are made just like hats are in our world- they really hold no magical properties until the right person picks it up. Now there is the whole idea your 'one hat' could be on the other side of the world, but that can't really happen. You will connect to a hat close in your area, and if you don't pick it up fast enough, then it will change to a different one, making it much easier to get a hat. Now once you HAVE your hat, you can't connect to another one. Kinda like that. :D
The exception though, is those with weak magic, or have some sort of magical difficulties. Gaining magic, and in turn gaining a hat, is extra hard on those sorts.
Though maybe you weren't necessarily asking me... oh well, answers ahoy :D
