The Magicians – Fanimation: Party Tricks Chapter Two

Last week Syfy released the first part of their new webseries based on The Magicians. The series is by Bonnie Jo Stufflebeam, illustrated by Miss Tak and narrated/read by Hale Appleman who plays Eliot Waugh in the series. Today they've released part two.


In the first part we met Tara, a new student to Brakebills who was assigned to the Psychic House. She heads over to a party at the Physical Kids cottage and we learn that she has feelings for Julia (Stella Maeve), the best friend of Quentin (Jason Ralph)… though in the series Julia isn't accepted into Brakebills. Tara joins in on a game of 77 Minutes in Heaven, the extended magical equivalent of the high school/college party game where you spin a bottle then go spend time making out in another room with the person it lands on. Though most people play the 7 Minutes in Heaven version. The bottle ended up pointing at Eliot and this new chapter picks up from there with the two of them going into the room. Turns out the are both gay, so no making out, but they share their stories of growing up being twice as different as the other kids. Then Tara remembers she has pills that will speed up time…

The Magicians is filming it's third season which will air in 2018. It's based on a trilogy of novels by author Lev Grossman.
