Hello there! My names Shaharazahd, you can message me for help.
First off, lets clear up some stuff! Magic isn't like charmed, teenage witch, halloweentown, ect. You can't do everything like be a mermaid, control the wind, and other things.
Doing so on SoM will label you as a fluff :(
I suggest reading the basics, its in general info and the first or second post. It's by AwakeTooLong. Also again, from him read the post on the elements.
To get started don't do spells, learn the basics.
