Whether your magic is arcane and unknowable or elemental and regulated, very magic system needs a base, a channel, and an effect. Base: what are the building blocks? Spoken spells like in Harry Potter, written marks that are woven together like the charter marks in the Abhorsen books, or the elements themselves, like Avatar: The Last Airbender? Or is your magic a part of the world itself, like in ASOIAF or LOTR, a force that manifests only as a property of something else? Channel: Magic wand, the mage's body, magical object, a law of physics, etc. How do you tap into it? Effect: Pretty self explanatory. What are the rules governing what your magic can and can't do? How does it change the world?
Other things to think about:
Your prompt: Write about your character getting their first taste of unfamiliar magic. They can be fighting it, learning it, whatever. If they already know it, have them face magic applied in a way they haven't seen before. Bonus points if you work in the implications this has for the shape of society.

mim: I wrote smut to amuse myself, but it forgot to become smut. They ended up fighting instead of in bed. Which was a problem when they were fanfic characters on a site too, actually...
