[reference] Places and the People Who Make Them Work

Years ago, when I was a tiny baby new to fandom (and therefore to having to have answers right away instead of at some nebulous future point when I was revising a novel that I might at some point get around to completing maybe) and my entire work experience was a bit of part-time retail-minioning, I kept finding myself wondering, “but what do people do all day when they’re supposed to be responsible for magical science-y cities and everyone in them?”

I have the feeling I’m forgetting like fifteen million things, so if you have any questions please do let me know in the comments, I’m always happy to babble. (Especially if you want to know anything about all my Intense Feelings About How Schools Work, I am so sad by how little resemblance like every fictional school ever bears to my experience working at same.)
