Topic: Plot for Card Tricks in General

I've thought of a good plot to use ... it's very simple.

The items have their own life, have choices they can make, and also have emotions.
I can incorporate this in to most of the tricks I know (not just card tricks).

Do you think this works well?

That sounds a lot like what Cardini's style is.

ahh good cardini ... i don't know much of him my friend is quite a fan i've seen smal clips from his preformances. id say his plot is more of a hallucination .. and magic is all around our lives as suggested by another magician ... im not sure who ... but i agree with him from what i've seen

The "antropomorphization" of cards is a standard cliché in card magic, especially in routines as the "Ambitious card", The Cannibals, etc. This can effectively contribute to add imagination and suspention of belief. In _Life, Death and other card tricks, by Robert Neal, there are many examples of this kind of plot.
