Reality is not Dark, so Why is Realistic Fiction?

Have you heard of The Magicians? If you’ve been browsing Facebook at all lately, you probably have, since I think they’ve sunk pretty much all the marketing budget in the world into their latest advertising campaign.

Well, now that the title is me laying down my cards so hard they’ve tunneled straight through the table into the center of the Earth, I should elaborate.
