"Kind of moot right at this instant," Jana says, amused as she leads the way out.

"Though that'd probably work best, yeah, though some geldings and all don't mind me."

"We can cross that bridge as it comes. It might not!"

"He hopes it will," Jana says with a grin. "He always prefers a horse to his legs."

The shadows of early morning seems to cling to her as she moves.

"Luckily I don't mind walking too much. Would've made setting out a pain if I did..."

Permalink

"To try and become a wizard's apprentice, right?"

Permalink

"Yeah. This is pretty good, though."

Permalink

"Speaking of this being pretty good, do you feel like trying some more magic?"

Permalink

"Definitely! Magic's - exciting."

Permalink

"That it is!" Friedrich agrees, and will set about teaching her some more while they walk.

Permalink

Magic!!!

She is a very quick learner, especially for someone who's never been introduced to the system until recently.

Friedrich is truly delighted to have such a good student! And is more than willing to share tales of his own attempts to learn - apparently he doesn't see any point in being ashamed of his failures.

"Really," he says cheerfully, "Failures are just another thing to learn from."

"Can't even count the number of times I failed - sometimes explosively - developing my spells..."

Permalink

"Explosions are underrated. Although not necessarily what you're looking for."

Permalink

"Heh. Well, I do now have a lot of explosive spells... That even explode only when I want them to. Mostly."

Permalink

"Ah, we have...well. One of our comrades from the desert skirmishes. They create fantastical devices. You would be amazed how many explode and he tries to claim that's exactly what he intended to happen."

Permalink

"Knowing him, half the time he probably does mean them to explode. Just not right at the instant that they do."

Permalink

"Explosions can be quite useful! I actually worked on a bunch for cracking rocks, to help with building and mining."

Permalink

"That is definitely true. Although when you have elemental magic at your fingertips mining is...less perilous, and building is... Well, elemental."

Permalink

She laughs. "Hopefully I'll still be able to find a niche."

Permalink

"With how quickly you're picking up magic, I have no doubt that you'll be able to carve yourself a place."

Permalink

"Maybe I can combine things well."

Permalink

"Vastly underrated skill, that!"

Permalink

"It'd be my best niche, probably."

"I think you're going to do just fine here," Jana says with a smile. "Although we should probably take a break and have some lunch. We've been on the road for a while, and there's no cloud cover. Walking through the peak of the sun is a bad idea."
