The most magical part of fantasy media is world-building. It’s fun to imagine the mundane aspects of going to school at Brabkebill University or playing vampire baseball. Although it wouldn’t make for good entertainment, taking a nap in the Weasleys’ house would be a fun experience.

We asked Cracked readers on Facebook, “What spell from a movie or TV show would you want to be real?” Not all the answers were from a movie or TV show … or even a spell … but we’ll let it slide. We are talking about fictional abilities anyway, so we won’t get hung up on such technicalities. Although we were disappointed no one said the ability to freeze time from Sabrina: The Teenage Witch (which is obviously the correct answer), you all had a variety of interesting answers.  Too many of you said Thanos’ snap, and look, we’re not disappointed, we’re just really, really worried about you.
