As a side-project as I write my science fiction stories, I've begun brainstorming on a fantasy story that's set in modern-day. It's told from the perspectives of several characters in a world where most supernatural/fantasy creatures exist. One of the major elements is a government organization tasked with dealing with supernatural crimes and rogue creatures as well as assisting some creatures into integrating within human society. It will change parts of the overall tone in the story depending on which option I pick. I'm thinking that this department is either behind the scenes, keeping mankind oblivious to the various creatures living among them or have the majority of these creatures out in the open, keeping some more dangerous ones locked up. My only problem with having the supernatural/fantasy world out in the open is that one of the characters starts off as a decently successful travelling magician (she eventually comes to the attention of the department). If we lived in a world where magic was part of everyday life, why would people go and see a magician to begin with? However, the story of a department tasked with keeping mankind from finding out about other live living among us has been done almost to death and I want to try something newer than it.
