"Not for magic you aren't!" Brenda points out. She attempts jumping. She manages to land on her feet.

"True enough! You seem to have gotten the hang of this whole being human thing."

Permalink

"I'll be ready to try ice skating any minute now." Hop hop.

Permalink

"Heh. I've never been but it sounds fun."

Permalink

"It looks it! Slidy but with feet."

Permalink

"I wonder if you'd be really good at snowboarding, since with that your feet are sort of attached to each other."

Permalink

"Either that or I'd be bad at it since I wouldn't have all the degrees of freedom I'm used to, just knees and ankles."

Permalink

"That and a smaller contact patch with the ground. Again, this is all guessing; I've never done a sport I didn't have to do for school."

Permalink

"They don't really do sports in Avalon school, can't standardize it..."

Permalink

"I'd say 'lucky you' but I'm told some people actually like sports."

Permalink

"They kept recess longer, I think? So that was nice."

Permalink

"That does seem like the logical thing to do. What stuff do you think you'll want to try, now that you can go places outside the Avalon? Have you been going out invisible a lot?"

Permalink

"I do really want to try ice skating, but maybe after I have more practice walking. I go sometimes, mostly at night because I'm worried about people bumping into me during the day when it's more crowded, I'm looking forward to being able to go places that are popular enough to have crowds."

Permalink

"I definitely want to hear how it goes!"

Permalink

"I'll write you all about it! Or tell you in person, I guess? Since you can teleport now?"

Permalink

"I can! I can totally come visit whenever we feel like it, though I hope medallion sales will be keeping me busy soon. Which reminds me, I should tell my research partner it worked!"

Permalink

"Who's your research partner?"

Permalink

"Girl I met in a magic store in Seattle. I text her when I'm stuck for ideas or want to ramble about magic at someone or want a diagram checked for errors, she looks stuff over and gives me sensible advice."

Permalink

"Cool! I'm glad you have a magic buddy. Does she have magic projects too?"

Permalink

"Yeah, she made this really cool spreadsheet that helps with spell design and I think she's working on healing. My next project is probably going to be Boxes of Holding."

Permalink

"How does a spreadsheet help? - and why not Bags?"

Permalink

"Constructing diagrams involves a lot of algebra and the spreadsheet does a lot of it for you, and boxes are easier because they have conveniently regular and unchanging interior dimensions to specify."

Permalink

"...does something bad happen if you squash the box?"

Permalink

"I haven't tried, but even the best case scenario is probably hard on the contents. Everything I sell is magically durable, since I don't want anyone else finding out either. Maybe I should add some more disclaimers to the website, 'no warranty and if there was one it would be void if you ran this over with a truck' etcetera."

Permalink

"What would happen if you ran over a magically durable box with a truck, like, would it puncture a tire?"
