Often, whenever the Muggles
see magic or any kind of supernatural weirdness going on, they'll refuse to believe they saw such a thing with their own eyes and just go on with their daily lives. Thus, the Weirdness Censor
is the perfect way for a Masquerade
to go around unnoticed because ordinary people won't care much about magic as long as it doesn't intrude on their sense of normalcy.
But sometimes, there is no need for the Weirdness Censor
because the weirdness just plain happens often enough to be commonplace. In such a setting, magic, Aliens in Cardiff
, and hyper-advanced technology is all so ubiquitous that people would be much more likely to notice when strangeness fails to happen
. This, in essence, defines a Plausible Implausibility: some event or thing that should be
strange isn't because the nature of the setting renders any inherent strangeness moot.
