In a comment, matrushkaka used the phrase "I dropped my basket", which isn't one I've heard before. A quick Google later, and I now know that it's from the Ya Ya Sisterhood book (don't remember the full title) and means, basically, to have a total breakdown. Cool – learned something new.

But better than that, I came across a short story called "The Price of Magic" on writing.com. Reading it, I got faint echoes of James Tiptree, Jr., Suzette Haden Elgin (ozarque), and Sheri Tepper. (Tiptree and Tepper for the feeling of "somewhat creeped out but can't stop reading" and Elgin for the narrator's voice.) Good stuff.
