"Then that seems like a splendid schedule."

"Awesome." She will submit that too then. Anything else she needs to square with Arcadia in advance? (Also, do they have, like, normal email she can use when she is not sitting in Penelope's shop any more?)

Permalink

They do have a normal email address! (If she tries googling it, they have an aggressively boring mortal front company.) She doesn't need to get any more things squared away in advance; here is when she will be emailed her housing assignment and syllabi, here is when she should show up to move in.

May bookmarks the page, adds the address to her contacts, and tucks her laptop away. She touches down on the ground, takes a few steps to get used to walking at her new buoyancy, picks up her backpack to see how that changes things. Does summoning her invisibility cloak work like all her other swag?

Permalink

She will try it on to see how well it works!

Permalink

"Do you want a mirror?" Penelope asks when she vanishes from sight. 

Permalink

"Yes please!"

Permalink

Penelope disappears briefly into the stacks of junk, then returns pulling a full-length mirror. 

Permalink

Does any evidence of May appear in this mirror?

Permalink

Her hands are visible where they're sticking out, and a little hint of her chin is visible under the hood. 

Permalink

"Hm, probably not suitable for flying home. I guess I could wrap up real carefully and go up high enough to be a speck before speeding up enough it'd billow?"

Permalink

"If you fly in that, you'd also have to make sure it covered your feet from below."

Permalink

"Yeah, I was thinking I'd sit in the air crosslegged and maybe tie it under me like that? But probably I should just walk home visibly and count on people to figure I'm just dressed up for reasons of my own."

Permalink

"The tying it under you method would probably work, but, also, people will absolutely assume that."

Permalink

"It's certainly what I would have figured if I saw someone dressed like this yesterday!"

Permalink

"Also, you should be aware that you're completely invisible from the back."

Permalink

"...interesting. Perhaps in physics class for witches I will learn how that works."

Permalink

"I don't know about a physics explanation, but for practical purposes, anything that you could see if the cloak were normal is visible, and anything that's covered by the cloak from a given person's perspective isn't."

Permalink

Nod nod. May re-opens her laptop to check the time. "- my mom will be wondering what can possibly have happened to me. Can I email you if I have more questions, is there anything else I ought to check or try or anything while I'm still here with a HexVPN and you to consult?"

Permalink

"You can stop by again if you need to use the HexVPN again before you go to Arcadia. My email address is--" she spells it out. 

Permalink

May writes down the email. "This isn't one of those magic shops that disappears if I leave?"

Permalink

"Nah. I mean, this entrance won't stick around forever, but until you leave for Arcadia, sure."

Permalink

"Cool." She looks around the shop. "Do you actually sell all this stuff on top of doing awakenings? - also do I like, owe you money, for the awakening. I should possibly have asked that first."

Permalink

"You do not owe me money! Most of this stuff is just junk I use in relation to the awakening process one way or another, or something I found useful one time, or presents I didn't know what to do with. There's overlap."
