Call me Orca. :)
I'm a 17-year-old girl who has been involved in magic for five or six years now, although the past year or two have been minimal in results. The type of magic I do does not really involve spells; rather, I just have to concentrate on what I wish to change (and I use my hands to channel it). Typically I only do this with the weather. But as mentioned, for one/two years now my ability seems to have been sapped from me.
Also, for the same amount of time I've been getting frequent bouts of bad karma. I'm a good person with fairly positive outlooks even after all I've been through. But I am still plagued with bad luck.
