Magic AUs are alternate universe fanworks that incorporate magic in fandoms where there is no magic present in canon. (Or in some cases, fanworks that make a canon with magic more magical.[1])

They differ from Elf AUs in that there may be magic without any elves showing up, and are opposites of All Human and Mundane AUs.
