    Elastic/Rubber bands have been a thing since 1845!

    Your character snaps one at someone or has been zinged by one.
    “We are the reckless,
    we are the wild youth.”

    Quote:The largest city in Britain—larger even than the muggles know. With several magical side streets accessible only to those who know they are there, the city boasts the most commercial magic activity outside of Hogsmeade.

    56. Get lost in magical London!
