Does anyone have a list of good exclamations that wizarding world types might make? Not just profanity but equivalents for things like oh my god, I swear to god, etc.

I know I've seen "Merlin!" and "Merlin's beard!" Not sure if "I swear to Merlin" is a thing, but it seems to follow that general pattern. Or really, you could just have fun with it: "goblins' balls!" "that's a pile of centaur crap!" "[I swear] by Merlin's wand!" (Actually, that's a more natural-sounding equivalent for "I swear to god" imo.) Go wild.

I don't have a list. Merlin stuff is pretty standard. Tina at one point says "Mercy Lewis" in a way that we might use "Jesus" or "Good God" or something.

So "Mercy Lewis" is of course of Salem/The Crucible fame... I've seen a fic where Graves swears "Proctor's ass!" which I thought was a neat take on the same theme.
