My story is set in present day. Magical beings co-exist among humans, but I don't know how to achieve that without having said beings live in secret or hide their abilities.
I want magic to not be an overly domineering aspect of my world. Mischievous teenagers dabble in it sometimes (because they're not very bright). And the majority of adults pay it little to no attention because it is, for whatever reason, not applicable/useful to society.
I want people to be able to see magic and not be rattled by it or thrown into a panic.
How can I make magic useful, but useless at the same time?
Is it possible to achieve a happy medium, or is this setting too contradicting?
