Yeah, you could certainly have lots of things that fill magic's role in the story. I'm pretty sure Nightingale, for example, has Accesses that don't officially exist (probably related somehow to whatever resulted in all those memorial pins), that Station knows all about even if she never uses them. And Molly, of course, can Do Things.

But I'm having trouble figuring out anything that would be a direct equivalent of Peter becoming an apprentice wizard. (Some kind of clientage to House Folly, obviously, that Peter refuses to call clientage. But in terms of a secret art Nightingale is teaching her?)

I'm hesitant to make it any kind of close consensual relationship with Station just because if Station is standing in for London I want to keep the complicated-grudging-respect relationship that London and Nightingale have in canon, but that could be interesting. But I feel like if anyone's going to have that kind of deal with Station it would be the Faceless One.
