How can you create a story that incorporates magical or supernatural elements in a way that is subtle and understated, without overwhelming the plot or detracting from the realism of the narrative?
I was thinking about writing a story about people who can alter reality at will, but I thought about it and I thought such a power would overwhelm the plot as the power would be just simply too powerful, and it would completely bend the story and worldbuilding around it.
Aside adding limitations to said power, are there ways to achieve this? I am thinking of adding a lot of limitations so that the magical and supernatural elements almost falls to irrelevance. Is this the right way, or are there other things we can do?
