I liked the idea of this world where wizards exist, it is insulting to a magician to be compared to one, and that, apparently, no one likes wizards. It all came to me from the title and the first line which mentions the song’s protagonist as a “fraud.”

As for what kind of world would love magicians for being gifted at pretending to have magic but dislike wizards for actually having it? A pretty interesting one, I’d say.

Not even the residents of Waverly Place would be safe from dislike. (www.disneydreaming.com)

Yes, I should have a more interesting story for this. I don’t though. Sorry.
