This is a story with magic. Shopclerk is a befuddled amnesiac who runs a magical gift shop; he wakes up every morning screaming. One day a strange woman, who may or may not know his true identity, walks into the shop and announces she'll be staying with him. A Web Comic by Maglorius. Began in 2008 on Comic Genesis and ceased updating in mid-2011. You can find it here.

There are certain rules concerning the use of magic:Self immolation is a sure sign a spell has gone wrong.Spontaneously combusting is also a pretty good indication that spellcasting may not be for you.


Some of the main characters are:

  • Shopclerk: The befuddled amnesiac. A man with no past, no name, and no memories. He's a really good cook, he thinks he may have known how to cook sometime in his past. His first memory consists of waking up in the chair in the back of the shop. He has bad nightmares, he doesn't remember them- but trust him, they're bad.
  • Girl: (Yes, she has a name, but it doesn't seem fair for y'all to find it out before Shopclerk does now does it?) a woman who just shows up one day and moves in to the shop.
  • Isidore Hines (Izzy): a man with the ability to "see" spells.
  • Sterling Faraday: He's rich, he's handsome, he's aggressively masculine in appearance, and he's used to being the center of attention where ever he goes. An unusually good looking 7 ft tall man.
