An OriginalFlavor fanfiction created by Stormwolfex. It may be found [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/6873009/1/Of_Science_and_Magics here]].

''Of Science and Magics'' is a WhatIf story set in the ''LightNovel/ACertainMagicalIndex'' universe. In this timeline, Touma Kamijou is a childhood friend of Mikoto Misaka, and the story approaches the ''Index'' and ''Railgun'' canon in that direction.

The story begins with the ''Manga/ACertainScientificRailgun'' timeline at the Level Upper arc, with Touma meeting the Railgun cast.

The main story published fourteen chapters which concluded the Level Upper arc and the Index arc. Unfortunately, there have been no further updates since September 2011, which leave numerous plotlines unresolved.

A few months after the main story's final update, a side-story titled ''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/7771256/1/Of_Science_and_Magics_The_Side_Stories Of Science and Magics: The Side Stories]]'' written by Knowledgeseeker66 was produced. Knowledgeseeker66 had previously received Stormwolfex's consent to write this story. It details numerous things about the past of Touma and numerous other characters prior to the beginning of Stormwolfex's story.
