Margaret Peregrine is a high school sophomore. Most of the time, she's either at school, at the school robotics club, at the school chess club, or doing schoolwork. Today, she's cleaning out her late great-grandmother's attic.
Sigh. "Yeah. If you could make yourself unkillable just by promising to live, everybody would do it."
"I didn't mean to worry you. Sorry."
"Yes, but a motorcycle won't help people as much as I think I can with magic. There are things worth doing that magic is the best way to do."
"We'll just have to see how far I can get. Even if invisibility is all I ever dare to do I think it will have been worth it so far." (She's not going to bring up the healing until she has a reputation from the invisibility rings--who in their right mind would trust a self-taught sixteen-year-old to do medicine?)
"Bye! See you!" If nobody else has questions for her, Margaret will leave as well.
And now she has all these bracelets to experiment on: a lobster clasp and magnets and a spring ring and a barrel clasp and an S clasp and a slide lock. Each one gets opened, enchanted for durability and continuous glowing, and then clasped and unclasped, one at a time. Do any fail to clasp or unclasp easily, or stop glowing when they do so?
She writes Brenda:
Lobster clasps, spring rings, and S clasps all don't work right with the durability spell on them. If we want to have those as options I might need to do the enchantments on just the rest of the bracelet before you put the clasps on. Or we can just do bangles and magnets and barrel clasps, keep it simple.
The slide lock works too, if you want to start making or buying those.
What sort of range would you charge anybody else for custom bracelets? I was figuring I'd pay your normal rates plus like a consulting fee or something, if that seems fair to you.
That makes sense; I guess we'll see how elaborate people want their invisibility jewelry. Feel free to charge me extra for having weird clasp requirements. And I figure I owe you a hundred or two for website help, if you're okay with waiting until your grandmother pays me.
I'd like to learn to update it.
How does 11 AM on Saturday sound?
